(I in no way have any intent to circumvent censors, I feel strongly that my title is appropriate for this thread and not in poor taste.)
Please make note:
The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. The Constitution is the framework for the organization
of the United States government and for the relationship of the federal government with the states, citizens, and all people within the United
So let's see...
SUPREME LAW OF THE UNITED STATES
FRAMEWORK OF THE US GOVERNMENT
FRAMEWORK FOR GOVERNMENT'S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE PEOPLE
If you live in the U.S., then these points are the very foundation of your mundane day to day life, regardless whether you own a gun or think someone
If you don't live in the U.S., then your opinion is moot.
However, feel free to continue to observe America continue to work through the hundreds of years of government flaws your country most likely already
has and continues to do.
The American Constitution and the American people ARE AMERICA.
AMERICA: people + Constitution = RIGHTS
Please make note:
The Bill of Rights is the name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution.
The Bill of Rights is a series of limitations on the power of the United States federal government, protecting the natural rights of liberty and
property including freedom of speech, a free press, free assembly, and free association, as well as the right to keep and bear arms.
Basic Right Numero Uno: BASIC HUMAN FREEDOMS
Freedom of speech
Freedom of press
Freedom of assembly
Freedom of petition
= WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO COMPLAIN ABOUT OUR GOVERNMENT.
Basic Right Numero Dos: DEFENSE AND IMPLEMENTATION OF NUMERO UNO
early American settlers viewed the right to arms and/or the right to bear arms and/or state militias as important for one or more of these
deterring undemocratic government;
facilitating a natural right of self-defense;
participating in law enforcement;
enabling the people to organize a militia system
= WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT
Please especially note:
THERE IS A REASON THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS IS THE SECOND MOST IMPORTANT FREEDOM IN OUR BILL OF RIGHTS
Whatever personal, specific reason you think that is OR ISN'T is unequivocally MOOT.
It's number 2. Period.
That means it's right after 1.
That's pretty important.
The people who wrote the laws enacting our basic rights and freedoms were absolutely brilliant individuals. These people began a whole new era of
These people knew what was important for a free, civilized society to live relatively at peace with the rights afforded to them.
These people were acutely aware that history ALWAYS repeats itself and that it is usually due to man's greed and lust for power over other men.
Now, what we must be acutely aware of is the fact that there are people who want to hurt other people.
These people will hurt other people by whatever means they have access to.
Knives, cars, rope, frozen chickens, whatever.....they are going to hurt someone.
However, in regard to gun deaths, the things you should be asking yourself are,
"Why do all these deaths seem so sensationalized?"
"Why do these shooters seem so deranged?"
"Why do they seem so mindless and random?"
"Why do most of them seem illogical and bizarre?"
"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to posses arms. History shows that all conquerors who have
allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so." -Adolph Hitler 1938
