My sister wrote this about Gun Control

Posted by   + Show Post

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess and carry firearms.

If at any given point in history we lose our RIGHT our FREEDOM to keep and bear arms. We COMPLETELY lose our ability to fight against tyranny. IT DOESN'T MATTER who the PRESIDENT is... Whether it is President Obama, or any future leader/government of our country. We have no means to defend ourselves. American is not immune to tyranny. We have become an ignorant country believing whatever is fed to us through the screen. 

Read a biography on George Washington. Read about John Adams. Read about Abraham Lincoln. Freedom is worth a Facebook Post. Freedom is worth a fight! If you do not stand up and fight your children and grandchildren may live in a country where they are starved and enslaved. That is the reality and the TRUTH! 

The 2nd Amendment is not about shooting a deer! It is about FREEDOM to protect yourself from a GOVERNMENT who wants to CONTROL you! - 1st paragraph is from Wikipedia, the rest is by Donna Dalrymple.

Quoting Gwynyth:




So you basically want the citizens to be unarmed? (Cause most hunting rifles are also semi. And in essence so are revolvers.)

So, difference of opinion = lack of education in your mind?

That's not the way the world works.

It's a shame that more people aren't as well educated as your sister.

Anything used to assault someone is an assault weapon. Ergo, every weapon in our safe is NOT an assault weapon since they have not been used to assault anyone.

I just dont see how the abundance of guns has done anyone any good at all. People ( I'm not talking criminals or gangs) innocent people are killed so often through gun violence. If guns are such great self defense, then why don't more people get the chance to defend themselves? Have you bothered to look at the statistics??? Look at the stats from some of the other countries that have gun control legislation...far fewer gun related deaths.

And since you asked...I always go around unarmed. I don't feel safe if I think someone around me has a gun. Of course, I don't think my friends and neighbors are about to commit some sort of vile crime either.

It is for them.   Their way is the only way.  No wonder they think they need a cache of weapons.
