Open Letter To Anyone Who Wants To Deprive Me Of My Rights:
24 February 2013
Lockdown and 911 weren't enough to protect the children in Sandy Hook from an evil person. Not protect them from an assault rifle or some type of inanimate object. But from an evil person. Quite a different situation compared to the elaborate security enjoyed by politicians all over the country. I'm not here to cite crime statistics, lives saved with guns, or the economic impact of the asinine gun control bills being written around the country.
In case some of you failed American History, there is something called the Constitution and a Bill of Rights and a process by which to amend it. Therefore, I will now share with you the 2nd Amendment of 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.
There is no registration, no permitting, no background checks. It's quite clear, it says it right there: the right of the people to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Gun owners in the United States are the well regulated militia. We maintain the security of a free state. We're the checks and balances against tyranny in this country. Tyranny can be described as oppressive power exerted by government; a rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force; or even an oppressive, harsh or unjust act. Does anyone else smell a bit of tyranny brewing in statehouses and capitol buildings around the country? I am shocked by some of the asinine legislation being proposed around the country today.
These rights are inalienable to all citizens of our great country regardless of gender, race or creed. And in order to limit the rights of individuals, there is something called due process and legislation is NOT due process. if you want to take my rights away, let's go to court. And with regards to due process, the final report with all of the facts on Sandy Hook will not likely be issued until this summer as was clearly stated in the media. So how can any legislation be passed in good faith or good conscience without all of the facts?
Again, gun ownership is a constitutional right, but it's not for everyone and that's okay with me. But it shouldn't make gun owners suspects regardless of how many guns they have or how much ammunition they may have. My guns are not dangerous, they are at home, locked up, collecting dust and cat hair. But criminals and tyrants beware, tyrants especially, lockdown is not an option at the Carpenter residence and 911 will be dialed AFTER the security of my home has been established. Why is it that the same security my family enjoys at home, is not available at schools around the nation?
That is what you should be considering, not making me a criminal. Charlton Heston made the phrase "from my cold dead hands" famous and I will tell you here today that you will take away my ability to protect myself or my family from my cold dead hands because when tyranny becomes law, revolution becomes duty.
