What don’t our elected representatives understand about, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
As the author of this piece I haven’t forgotten about the first part, and extremely important aspect that is stated in the Second Amendment, which is,” A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state.”
You see, our Fore Fathers saw that it was extremely important that the everyday citizen was responsible for upholding these Rights set forth in our founding documents. This amendment wasn’t restricted to just rifles but also covered every and all ARMS! The common argument against the 2nd Amendment is that it was only addressing “muskets.”
This is incorrect.
Our Founding Fathers thought it prudent that the average citizen should have the ability to repel any and all threats, be it tyranny or otherwise. They believed that it was every man’s right to rebel and stand against any infringements of every and all freedoms that have been naturally bestowed upon us by God. It was believed that the people ought to have the ability repel a foreign army and to meet the threat’s evolution of weaponry head on.
If the Founding Father’s wanted us to simply have “muskets” then they would have stated,” the right of the people to keep and bear muskets shall not be infringed.
The term “arms” is general and open ended. “Arms” is defined as:
The Right to Bear Arms covers every imaginable weapon that can be fathomed by the human mind.
Now that we have this simple understanding of what our Founding Fathers truly intended, below is a list of our so-called representatives who support weakening and ultimately destroying the people’s ability to protect themselves and our Nation from any and all threats:
As originally reported on Brietbart.com
Here is a list of the GOP gun control supporters:
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) – On October 5 Speaker Ryan said legislation banning bump stocks is “clearly” something Congress much look into.
Rep. Bill Flores (R-TX) – Flores admitted he did not know what a bump stock was until this week, yet he says he looked into them and is backing gun control via a ban on them.
Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) – On October 5 Yoder put out a press release in which he inaccurately claimed that bump stocks “convert legal firearms into an automatic weapon.” They do not. They are an accessory, not a conversion device. Nevertheless, Yoder supports gun control via a ban on the devices.
Rep. Mark Meadow (R-NC) – Meadows is the head of Freedom Caucus and according to the New York Times, he “would be open to considering a bill” that bans bump stocks.
Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) – NYT reports that Curbelo is drafting gun control legislation to ban bump stocks.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) – On October 4 Breitbart News reported that Cornyn said a hearing on a bump stock ban would be “worthwhile.”
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) – On October 4 Politico reported that Johnson said, “Automatic weapons are illegal. If … [the bump stock] facilitates that, to me it would be subject to the same ban. If that actually gets on the Senate floor, I’d vote for it.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) – NYT reports Graham “would be open to considering legislation on bump stocks.”
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) – NYT reports Hatch “would be open to considering legislation on bump stocks.”
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) – Rubio said he and his colleagues “would always be open” to addressing “vulnerabilities in federal law.”
Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) – During an October 5 on CBS This Morning, Kasish was asked if he supported gun control via a ban on bump stocks and he said, “Oh, yeah of course.”
These GOP politicians are joined by numerous Democrat office holders, including Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) and Paul Tonko (D-NY), Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), and Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA).
It is your duty as an American citizen to remove these men from public office. It is the duty of all citizens to keep and conserve our God given rights to protect ourselves and our Nation from any and all threats. It is our duty to pass down these Rights to all future generations so that they too can enjoy the freedoms passed down by our forefathers.
