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.

Lack of education = lack of education. People who don't have any idea why the 2nd amendment is part of the bill of rights are lacking in education. People who don't know anything about guns, or have enough knowledge to grasp what guns would be necessary to implement the 2nd amendment are lack education.

Those who lack education and actually believe their opinion matters more than those who are educated are foolishly arrogant ~ and dangerous to the future of the United States. Like it or lump it, I could care less.

Quoting AdellesMom:

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

That's not the way the world works.


Quoting Farmlady09:

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

You can't compare a revolver to a weapon that can fire dozens of rounds in seconds.


Quoting Whaaaaaa....O.o:

Quoting Gwynyth:




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

Quoting Gwynyth:




Actually you can. And you can't fire dozens of bullets in seconds with a semi automatic. You don't just squeez the trigger once and dozens of bullets come flying out. You have to squeeze the trigger for each bullet.
What makes a semi auto a semi auto is you don't have to manually reload after each shot.
A revolver you do not hat to reload after each shot.

The first amendment says we have a right to free speech but one cant yell "fire" in a crowded theater.
