2nd Amendment Under Attack

by

The Second Amendment says

“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 attacks on this right granted to us in the U.S. Constitution have started and Obama has not even taken office yet.  Read this story for more information.  Here are some of the details:

U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush, D-Ill., is hoping to pass a firearm-licensing bill that will significantly rewrite gun-ownership laws in America.

Among the more controversial provisions of the bill are requirements that all handgun owners submit to the federal government a photo, thumb print and mental heath records. Further, the bill would order the attorney general to establish a database of every handgun sale, transfer and owner’s address in America.

You may want to read that again.  The bill is H.R. 45, a.k.a. Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009.  If this bill passes it will be a major erosion on our Constitutional rights.  David Cordea explains the implications of this bill in this way:

“It will make it illegal for you to possess guns you currently legally own unless you go jump through their hoops, register yourself and obtain a license.” [Click here to read his article]

The time for our diligence in preserving our rights is here.  Do not give up.  Call, write, email, or fax your representative and tell them to oppose this bill.  Tell them how it is unconstitutional.  Tell them that you expect them to do all that they can to stop this and remind them that you will remember how they voted come next election.

    Now, more than ever, we need strong gun legislation and strong law enforcement to limit bloodshed caused by the irresponsible possession and use of firearms.

    When the Second Amendment was written, Americans who were eligible for militia service were said to be “capable of bearing arms.” That was the common language of the time. To be considered capable of bearing arms you had to be qualified to be militia material, both physically and by age.

    I see it as somewhat preposterous to think that the framers of the Second Amendment intended to guarantee a right to keep and bear arms to any individual who wasn’t capable of bearing arms and therefore wasn’t militia-eligible.

    But if we must view the Second Amendment in that peculiar way, then we surely need legislation to keep the deadly results as minimal as possible.

    Ugh…. Have you ever heard Rep. Bobby Rush speak in public? He’s only about 1/2 a step away from speaking in pure ebonics.

    The last time I heard him speak on the radio, he was behind the push towards allowing Blagojevich’s appointment of Roland Burris, based purely on claims that it would be “racist” not to allow a black man to serve.

    Never-mind the obvious fact that this had ZERO to do with race. (People would be JUST as upset allowing an impeached, corrupt Representative to appoint a white man to fill a vacant seat he first tried to illegally SELL!)

    I’m convinced Bobby Rush doesn’t even have the mental capacity to comprehend the results of the actions he takes. It’s sad he was ever allowed to hold a political office of any kind.

    Filing a bill means jack squat. It has to pass before anything can happen. Bunch of crybabies.

  4. Mr Ed Says:

    In case you don’t know, to purchase ANY FIREARM, YOU ALREADY HAVE TO PASS A Department of Justice background check! Its called a Dealer’s Record of Sale (DROS). And there ARE REQUIREMENTS you have to meet before a gun purchase can even begin!
