The 2nd Amendment – It’s Your RIGHT!

“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” (Richard Henry Lee, Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress, initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights.)

“The great object is that every man be armed . . . Everyone who is able may have a gun.” (Patrick Henry, in the Virginia Convention on the ratification of the Constitution.)

“The advantage of being armed . . . the Americans possess over the people of all other nations . . . Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several Kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” (James Madison, author of the Bill of Rights, in his Federalist Paper No. 46.)

Samuel Adams, a handgun owner, pressed for an amendment stating that the “Constitution shall never be construed . . . to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms,”

And last but not least, “If I want to own a fully automatic, weapon, I can.  Whether for sport, for fun, for protection, or for reasons unknown; I can!  God gives me the right, and the Constitution protects it.”  Who said that one?  Me, Tracy C. Tarum.  Does that make it any less true?  Is it less accurate or less intellectual?  Does it matter that it was penned in 2010, not 1776?  Does it not follow the intent of our Founders?

The simple fact is that the 2nd Amendment exists to ensure a resistance to tyrants.  If ever necessary, how will we protect ourselves and posterity from its yokes: peaceful thoughts, flowers, hippie-love, water balloons?

Limitations on the right of an individual to own a gun for hunting, personal and family protection, and shooting for fun and sport was never even a consideration at the time of our founding, and the 2nd Amendment was not penned for those purposes: it exists to prevent tyranny!  Do not let your government take away your means of defense.  Fear any government that fears your guns!

‘Nuff said on that one….
