Gun Control

Hello,

It’s me, “Ex”. I am writing today to give my full opinion on the gun control issue. As I stand firm with the Constitution of the United States of America, I do recall seeing the 2nd Amendment (That’s #2 on the Bill of Rights) says, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Hmm, let’s break this down.

A well regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state

Ok, that makes sense. But what is a “militia”? At the time it was written, it was referring to individual men, regular farmers and townsfolk, who brought the guns that they owned for hunting, to join up and fight the British during the Revolution. Does this definition apply today? After all, we have our “militias” known as the National Guard and Reserve forces. Are we correct to call them militia?

NO

A militia is a force that is not funded by the government. A militia rises and disperses at the will of the people who compose it.

Then what does it mean by a “well regulated militia”?

…the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

This is what the 2nd Amendment is referring to. Basically the Amendment says this: “The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed because a well regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state”. The very Amendment is calling the people the militia and to keep them well regulated means to keep them armed, as keeping them armed is the best defense to the security of a free state.

That settles that. But does this apply to us in the “Modern Era”?

Especially in a time of war, the 2nd Amendment couldn’t be more important. Also, it doesn’t matter what era it is. It seems in this “modern era”, people are just as violent if not more violent than we were in the past. By disarming the innocent, those who are willing to ignore a gun ban law will ignore the gun ban law and use their illegal weapons on the innocent. That’s so obvious is makes my head hurt that millions of people don’t get it. If I had a sword and I said “en gaurde”, and you didn’t have a sword, how is this an even fight? If you had a gun pointed at my head and I had a gun pointed at yours, the only thing keeping you from pulling your trigger is the possibility of me pulling mine if you miss.

Statistics also show that with more gun laws, the more gun crime. Australia is a prime example. They live in the modern era too and people are still violent, in fact violent enough to kill more people as criminals know that they can commit crimes unopposed.

This is why guns are necessary to the SECURITY of a free state. It doesn’t only apply to controlling the federal government, but also protecting us from domestic threats.

I stand with the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment’s wisdom of keeping the people armed as the best defense to the security of a safer and freer nation.

11 Years

Image

Today is the 11th anniversary of the terror attacks on the Twin Towers in New York City, The Pentagon in Washington DC and Flight 93’s heroic fight to save many others.

9/11/01

It was a very clear and mild Tuesday morning. We watched the images of the first tower burning on it’s top floors. We watched LIVE when the 2nd plane hit the second tower. We witnessed breaking news of smoke billowing from the Pentagon. We looked up in to the sky to see great white circles etched into the clear blue, drawn by the other aircraft after being ordered to turn back and land.

We remember the smoldering field in Somerset County, PA. We felt scared. We felt angry. We united as a nation to stand up against an enemy filled with hate for any lifestyle that they did not accept. Our freedom WAS under attack.

We went to war.

Al Qaeda.

Bin Laden.

Afghanistan.

Anthrax.

Biological weapons.

Suddenly, our anger and vengeance was turned on Saddam Hussein. Iraq became our target. Why? Was it oil? DID they have weapons of mass destruction? We had intelligence that they did. Did Saddam get them out of Iraq before we could get to them? If so, where did he put them? Where were our allies? The questions began and our doubts stirred in our minds. Some of us spoke about our concerns. Some of us stayed reserved.

Patriot Act.

Airport Security.

Level Orange.

Threat Elevated.

An election season comes again. Bush is re-elected to “finish the job”.

Debt.

Congress’ approval rating.

No compromise.

The war continues.

Obama.

McCain.

The Surge.

Hope and Change.

Election Fraud?

Troop build-up.

Leave Iraq, more attention on Afghanistan.

Patriot Act.

TSA.

Executive Orders.

Czars.

Socialized programs.

Taxes, taxes, taxes.

Rise of the Tea Party.

Debt. 10 Trillion.

Debt, 11 Trillion.

Debt, 12 Trillion.

Debt, 13 Trillion

Debt, 14 Trillion

Debt, 15 Trillion

NDAA

SOPA/PIPA

Occupy!

War in Egypt, Libya, Syria.

Muslim Brotherhood.

Al Qaeda-backed factions assisted by the USA and allies.

IRAN.

Election, FINALLY!

Ron Paul.

Mitt Romney.

Barack Obama.

County, State Republican Conventions.

Fraud!

Votes denied, ballots lost.

RNC Chair resignation after resignation.

Republican National Convention.

Democrat National Convention.

Scripted Votes! Fraud!

And here we are…11 years later.

Our freedoms have been eroded since that day in 2001. The war continues…and for what? To defend our freedom? What freedom? Which candidate is defending our freedom? Ron Paul was, but he was silenced. Gary Johnson is, but he is being silenced.

Have we lost the war?

It’s time to think. It’s time to act. We must not continue to drive each other apart and further divide this nation. We must reunite. Don’t go left. Don’t go right. Come together in the center. Compromise. There will be ONE person on the ballot in all 50 states who defends the constitution, who will unite us once again. His name is Gary Johnson.

Please don’t take this as a campaign post. This is for reflecting on the events of the past 11 years. You know we are losing this country. This is the last time we can save America. This is our last stand.
