Having been listening to a bunch of uneducated do-gooders and some with other things in mind, it brings to the surface some facts.
The founding fathers hashed out the amendments to our Constitution quite thoroughly.
The Second Amendment was the second most important, the first, of course, ensuring the right of the people to speak their mind.
All of the people of the era of 1776 knew full well the wrath of a despotic ruler, and how it brought fear and affected their lives.
That same kind of fear can exist no matter how many people there are, or how wealthy they are.
Some people feel quite content to be led down the primrose path to their loss of freedom.
As Benjamin Franklin put it, "When you sacrifice freedom for security, you end up with neither."
That one statement alone tells me that I best not sacrifice even a part of my freedom for the empty promises from a politician.
The politician can never protect anyone from the mentally ill, or the criminal. That being the case, why on earth would I deprive my family of the right of protection on the utterances from the uneducated?
Perhaps you've heard of Marcus Tullius Cicero? He was the greatest Roman statesman who ever lived.
More than 2,000 years ago he tried to warn his people of the corrupt politician. Many people of today are motivated to investigate the subject Cicero spoke of - treason.
When I think of that speech, I think of the American people who believe their actions regarding gun control are the betterment of our society.
They could not be farther from the truth, because the politician has no regard for the security of our people, contrary to what they say.
The politician is illegally and unconstitutionality converting our once free republic into an unfree socialist nation.
The corrupt politician does not give a damn about your security, nor does he give a damn about the known criminal, or they wouldn't be free to cause harm, nor does he give a damn about the pedophile, or they wouldn't be free to rape and kill our children, and allowed to live freely in our very neighborhoods.
No, the politician wants you to be defenseless against the actions of a corrupt government, whereas the founding fathers wanted our people to be able to defend themselves in the event our own government would not adhere to the oath of office they swore to uphold and defend the Constitutions of the United States.
"...The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
What part of "shall" do you not understand?
The Constitution was not written in a foreign language, so it is very easy to understand.
And it stands as a safeguard against the corrupt politician.
That safeguard is what the politician wants to change, but in order to do so, he needs you to be defenseless.
Instead of some accusing others of creating a conspiracy, why don't they educate themselves and learn who the real conspirators are?
