Declaration of Independence

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. - That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.

Second Amendment

                The topic of discussion for this Constitution Monday is the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America:  “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.” 

                Liberals continue to insist that the Second Amendment does not give Americans the right to own and use guns.  Chelsea Clinton is currently claiming that the Second Amendment will be “gutted” now that Justice Antonin Scalia is no longer on the Supreme Court to protect the law.  The threat to the Second Amendment is real.

                Mark Alexander at the Patriot Post posted an excellent article outlining the dangerous situation involving the Second Amendment.  He reminded his readers that the current occupant of the White House “announced his primary objective for this last year in office:  undermining the Second Amendment on the pretense of `solving’ America’s `gun problem’” and “directly referenced confiscation of guns as the centerpiece of that agenda.”  Later he accused the gun lobby as “holding Congress hostage right now, but they cannot hold America hostage….  We can find the courage to cut through all the noise and do what a sensible country would do.”

                Why would any sensible person want Americans to be disarmed? History has proven time after time that “disarming citizens has resulted in everything but civilized or sensible countries.  In fact, only one nation has ensured by its law of incorporation, that an armed citizenry is the only way to both ensure and sustain a civilized and sensible government.”
