so what happens when they ban drinking bottled water, or buying gas for a certain amount, or lioving without a microchip implanted in your head or
hand? Face it. we are approaching the end.
And this is what those pushing for gun legislation do not realize...That a precedent would be set that will just further the decline of American civil
liberties and Constitutional rights. I get so mad at those who do not realize or care that many people died, suffered hardships, and spent a whole lot
of time thinking and debating over our rights and our Constitution. And now they do not even care when some insane legislators, who are in the pockets
of lobbyists, who do not care for your interests, are attempting to change things.
Gun rights were not included via the 2nd amendment so that people could go have fun shooting them. They serve a purpose that is ESSENTIAL to
democracy, which is that the people have the power to oppose the government if necessary. It is a necessary safeguard, and the ONLY way to ensure
continued liberty and democracy. Slowly our rights are being taken away, and this is called conditioning. They will not come for guns right away, but
will pass ILLEGAL legislation leading up to the event.
And mind you it is highly illegal for the Federal government to even make laws regarding arms. If debated by the Supreme Court, they would realize the
INTENTION the Founding Fathers had, and therefore could not condone any regulation. This is if they truly follow the Constitution, which they are
supposed to do, and what they gained office for. Any politician who does not serve the American people by upholding past laws, especially those so
sacred as to be instituted at our country's founding, should be tried for treason.
Patriotism is not supporting your nation no matter what. Patriotism is upholding the standards of laws that have been put in place, and if that means
opposing your government, then that is fine. It is not unpatriotic by any means. Those who are pushing for gun legislation are not patriotic, and in
fact are enemies of democracy, for they wish to take away our main tool of maintaining democracy. How can people not realize this? Are they blind,
stupid, or do they have their own agenda, or what?
Some of you people are way too trusting of our government, and you should not be. Throughout the life of this country the majority of our politicians
have given us many reasons to doubt their abilities and motives, especially in the last couple of decades. You should take into account all of the
illegal acts perpetrated by the government recently. It is ridiculous that anyone would trust POLITICIANS to do the right thing, and not seek MORE
power. If they are able to, which they would be if we have no arms, someone WILL try a power grab. It has been seen repeatedly in other countries, and
firearms, or lack of them on a mass scale by a population, are the main reason democracy does not exist in every part of the world.
For those who uphold righteousness and the law are more numerous than those who oppose it. And those who oppose it will get arms somewhere, no matter
if they are illegal or not. While those who obey the law are slaughtered because they choose not to break the law. And some of you are so gullible to
think that this could never happen in America. Wake up and open your eyes.
America is not immune to the whims and greed of certain people, and the only thing protecting us now is the one thing you want taken away. You should
be ashamed of yourselves for both your lack of understanding and your promotion of "terroristic" ideals. It is not those who support the 2nd
amendment who are terrorists, but YOU, those of you who wish to nullify my rights, that so many people died and suffered to give me. You can bet I
will not give ANY of those rights up without a fight, and many others will not either. So you are the terrorists, not us.
