The spirit of self-reliance is sorely lacking in the American people and in our communities. Modern America has become reliant on the government to provide for us. We look to the government to provide jobs, to take care of the less fortunate, and to fix our problems.
It is that time again. We are entering an election year. The Candidates are giving their speeches. But, have you thought about how you will vote? All too often people are caught up in voting for the right party. Is this really how we should be voting?
Our founders started the process of establishing this Republic by passing the resolution that would initiate the Declaration of Independence. The leaders of the 13 colonies were united in this demand for independence from the tyrannical rule of King George.
There is a reason that our right to Free Speech is perched upon the top spot in our Bill of Rights. To be free to speak ones mind, to think freely, to believe and practice one’s own faith, to report and share ideas…these were not just ideas that were discussed by our Founding Fathers, they were the cornerstone principles upon which our nation was built.
They are billionaires roving the country acting like hitmen with an open contract on the killing of the Second Amendment!
And hanging in the balance of the fight for the high ground in the Supreme Court is our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms for the lawful purpose of self-defense.
There is never a good moment to discuss the Second Amendment and gun control after a shooting incident, especially when that crime has taken lives. Like all Americans, I mourn the loss of innocents to the actions of a mad man on a mission of evil.
Politics aside, it hurts my heart that any leader of any state would resort to such short-sighted rhetoric under the false pretense of wanting to “protect” our children.
Before my transformation into a gun-rights activist, I used the internet for normal people’s things. I searched for worthless info, I enjoyed a good video now and then, and occasionally posted on social media platforms. I never really thought about what my actions meant, and I thought very little about protecting my 2nd Amendment rights.
How can we expect the United States Supreme Court to protect our Second Amendment rights us when they are not even willing to defend their own precedents?
