This morning I got together with a good friend and neighbor for coffee and as usual we starting discussing what is going on in our country. Our talk covered a wide range of current issues and eventually turned to gun control. Both of us are very conservative as well as avid 2nd Amendment supporters so you can pretty much guess what our thoughts were on this issue.
As we were talking my friend brought up a very good point when he mentioned that people keep saying that the gun control proponents are not using logic when it comes to new gun laws and regulations. What he mentioned was that there is logical reasoning behind their ideas, unfortunately most people believe that the goal of the left is to make our society safer when their real goal is to disarm the pubic in order to solidify their control over the populous.
I must agree with this assessment because I don’t believe for a second that these leftist politicians are so ignorant that they think that more failed policy will make us safer. To believe otherwise is a dire mistake that conservatives are making. People need to start realizing that the left is interested in one thing only and that is gaining and keeping as much power as possible. It is way past time for conservatives to call the left out on their real agenda. Our so-called conservative politicians need to point out the real reasoning behind this gun control agenda. Of course, the liberals will deny this, and the media will push the same denials but none the less we must push for the truth.
There is just a little over a year before we go to the polls to vote for president and everyone of the Democrat candidates are stating what they will do to promote gun control if elected. If necessary, they are even willing to by-pass congress and issue executive orders to get their policies in place. When our countries’ founders wrote the second amendment the single most important reason for this amendment was to give the citizens the ability to protect themselves from an oppressive government.
How many times over the last half century have we seen governments first strip their citizens of their means of self-protection and then the rest of their freedoms. Here in the United States we are fortunate to have a Constitution which guarantees our God given rights to protect ourselves from an overbearing government. The 2nd Amendment is the only thing that prevents us from losing our other rights. If the 2nd is revoked how will we protect our other freedoms?
