Perspective

December 17, 2012

“Never let a good crisis go to waste”.  And they won’t.  Drives me crazy when people say,  “We need reasonable gun controls because there isn’t a hunting or sporting need for these automatic assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.”  If that’s what you’re thinking, here is the text of the Second Amendment to the U. S. Constitution.  Can you find the words “hunting” or sporting” in there anywhere?

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.

The Second Amendment is all about the people in “We the People”, keeping the government operating within the bounds of the constitution.  And the constitution doesn’t give you any rights anymore than the government can give you rights. Government isn’t supposed to “give” you anything.   It only is in there to ensure your God-given rights don’t get crushed by an over reaching government.

So to put this in perspective….
