The right of the people to keep and bear arms is a critical ingredient of a free society. The Founders understood this, which is why they gave us the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.
Today, there is an incremental attack on the Second Amendment.
Arizona Senator John McCain and other Republicans are lining up to support anti-Second Amendment legislation. He cited a misleading Quinnipiac University poll that says 9 out of 10 of those surveyed want to rollback the Second Amendment. Half of those polled also said background checks will lead to firearm confiscation.
Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, Utah Republican Senator Mike Lee said, “Following the tragedy at Sandy Hook, Americans have been rightfully focused on how to prevent such tragedies from occurring in the future,” he said. “But unfortunately, the proposals we’ve seen would serve primarily to limit the rights of law-abiding citizens while doing little, if anything, to actually prevent tragedies like this from occurring in the future.”
Like the disastrous and unconstitutional Obamacare bill rammed down the throats of the American people, the unconstitutional S. 49 gun bill aimed at the heart of the Second Amendment passed cloture in the Senate with 68 votes despite the fact senators have not had a chance to read it.
Regardless of the enthusiasm to proceed, most senators, including ardent supporters, have not read the bill. “Well, I haven’t seen the bill, so I’m going to reserve my concerns,” California Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein told Morning Joe. “I only know what people have told me.”
The enemies of your liberty led by Sen. Feinstein do not want the contents of their unconstitutional legislation known to the public because they know if we knew what the bills said, we would reject it outright. These are simply incremental attacks to weaken and eventually overturn the Second Amendment. If passed, universal background checks promoted by these treasonous legislators will establish a national registry that will be used to confiscate firearms.
If you listen to these people, they will tell you that confiscating firearms and banning guns outright are their goal.
Listen to Sen. Feinstein…
“… Mister and Misses America… turn em all in…”
