Firearms & the 2nd Amendment
Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment II (Ratified 1791)
   "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."

Our rights, as American citizens, are codified in the
governing document
of our nation. Among them is
an enumeration of a God-given right to self-defense.
Since the creation of the world, various threats to
our lives have arisen: threats from nature, threats
from man, and threats from government. Tyranny
has dominated the earth for the vast majority of
history, but in the formation of the American nation,
our forefathers, having suffered under the yolk of
tyranny, resolved and determined to ensure the
natural rights of the people would be permanently
enumerated and codified in the very foundational
document to which our government must conform.

Here I have endeavored to provide a clarity regarding one specific right that is contentious only because of its ultimate stand against tyranny. Those who wish to control and/or oppress have always disarmed people. Today we have those who ridicule as "bitter clingers" and "deplorables" anyone who asserts their rights. NRASealRed.jpg (5098 bytes)They apply negative stigmatism (of "the gun nut"), questioning the "sanity" of anyone who loves their liberty (while considering Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" statement to be an ultimate example of our founding fathers' total dedication to building our country).

In this website, I address the hysteria of the oppressors using the facts of history and the deductions of logic. I love my freedom as an American citizen. I stand firm and resolute regarding my rights, doing so unashamed. For current federal and state handgun laws, click the Handgun Law graphic. Also, the current reciprocity struggle is a worthy read.
