Government Declares War on the Constitution - 2nd Amendment in the Crosshairs
Many people believe the Government has been whittling away at Liberty and the rights of the people enshrined in the US Constitution for many years, especially since the attacks on our nation on 9-11-2001. Now the 2nd Amendment is coming directly into the cross-hairs of the Federal Government. Of course, this is a key step in overturning the rights of the people. A disarmed society is much easier to control. This month Senator Dianne Feinstein has taken the point on this issue by announcing a new gun-control bill to be introduced in the Senate during the 2013 session.
Following is a detailed list of action items from Feinstein's official US Senate website:
This is an outrageous attack by Feinstein on the rights of law abiding citizens of the United States and must be stopped. Laws should be written to affect criminals who abuse their Constitutional rights by breaking existing laws. We do not need new laws that punish law abiding citizens while doing nothing to reduce the crimes being committed by others.
Here is a list of things you can do to protect your rights to own firearms in this country:
The 2nd Amendment is not about hunting and shooting sports. The 2nd Amendment gives you the right to protect yourself and your family when the government cannot. We have had many instances in the recent past where this has been demonstrated. After Hurricane Katrina where guns were confiscated from citizens, the Los Angeles riots and even in many attempted mass shootings where an armed citizen was present and able to stop the attack. It is also in place to protect all of the other rights guaranteed in the Constitution by having an armed citizenry that is able to protect an over-reaching government.
One of our TexasGOPVote bloggers, Nelson Spear from Midland, Texas contacted Sen. Feinstein's office today. Here is how that conversation went:
How's that for friendly service...
Be vigilant during 2013. Your rights will be under attack. Feinstein will not be the only Senator trying to steal your rights. Only an informed and ever-watching cadre of citizens can stop this from happening.
Perhaps Senator Feinstein's time would be better spent investigating why her President and Attorney General are violating the law by allowing guns to be illegally purchased in the US and delivered to Mexican drug cartels under operation Fast and Furious. Just a thought...
