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.

Do You Believe the Second Amendment Is in Danger?

            The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution declares that the government cannot “infringe” on the right to keep and bear arms. Yet, Democrats in Virginia, with their new power of total control over the state government, are trying to do ban firearms. Numerous counties have declared themselves to be sanctuary counties.

            Paul Pedard said that “100,000 Virginia gun owners” have attended county and town meetings rallying for “gun sanctuaries.” Now they are “bombarding” the Democrats in the state legislature. According to Pedard, Philip Van Cleave, the president of the Virginia Citizens Defense League, which is leading the sanctuary movement, said the following:

Now it’s time. Now we’re going to melt down their phones, explode their inboxes on their email. We’re going to bombard them more than they’ve been bombarded.

            Van Cleave sent an alert to his supporters to lobby lawmakers in Richmond who are against gun control. The group is organizing its annual “lobbying day” that promises to bring buses of supporters from all over Virginia and at least 13 others states with some of them coming from Texas, Florida, and Connecticut. For more information, see Pedard’s article here

            The Governor of Virginia imposed a ban on firearms at the planned pro-gun rally and a judge upheld the ban when gun owners sought an injunction against it. It is obvious that the Second Amendment is in danger in Virginia. How is it faring in other states? Liberals just cannot wrap their heads around the idea that people can own firearms and use them lawfully.

Added later:

            The rally at the Virginia capital was massive with thousands of gun rights supporters on hand. They had a message for legislatures about their new gun bans: We will not comply. See this articlefor more information.
