The Second amendment is under attack on a daily basis. It was not designed to give hunters the right to hunt. It was to give us the citizen the means to protect our rights from others which include the government, and mobs. Assault weapons do have a purpose if your life is threatened by a number of people at the same time. They do serve a purpose if the day ever comes when our Life, Liberty, or property is attacked by any person or group foreign or domestic.
The bad guys will always have weapons because they don’t follow the law. You can’t stop acts of violence with laws that are only followed by law-abiding citizens. You can’t protect your rights from Tyranny if you allow the right to bear arms to be taken away or diminished.
President Obama said “I also believe that a lot of gun owners would agree that AK-47s belong in the hands of soldiers, not in the hands of criminals,” Obama said. “That they belong on the battlefield of war, not on the streets of our cities.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixZKI9jS_yY&feature=player_embedded
I don’t agree with Obama! Chicago is probably the most progressive liberal city in the U.S. Think about the crime with guns that are not allowed in Chicago. What is the murder rate? Do you think a flash mob would attack people if there was concealed and or open carry?
The second amendment is guaranteed by the Constitution which progressive Democrats no longer believe. They want to sign arms treaties that limit our Constitutional rights. http://www.foxnews.com/topics/us/second-amendment.htm
Freedom of press is a right guaranteed by the Constitution. I don’t see any 3 day wait period before a story can be written that Malines the reputation of people and groups. I don’t see a call for banning reporters that attack individuals using their family as pawns. I don’t see a call for the ban of comedians that are the ak47’s of the progressive Democrats. The Freedom of press should be treated the same as the right to bear arms, since both are guaranteed by the Constitution. Just think of all the attacks by progressives on these Federally protected rights clearly written in our constitution. The 10th amendment is totally ignored by Obama who is getting away with it. The 2nd is under daily attack. The 1st, 4th, 5th and 8th are perverted against enemies of the progressive movement which violates the 9th.
