Federal vs States Rights and the Second Amendment


Do you value your guns?  Do you support the right of lawful citizen ownership of firearms for recreation, sport and self-defense?  Many state legislatures also support this.  The administration, in the form of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, disagree.

The news broke recently that Kansas passed a law upholding the rights of the state citizens to bear arms, in spite of the intentions of the Federal government and making it a level 10 nonperson felony.  It appears that the President, in his partnership with the United Nations, is set on disarming law abiding Americans. 

I try to stay apolitical, but this is beyond my comprehension.  How can this happen in a country so many of us have sacrificed so much to defend?  Please support the state representatives that support our rights, and for those who do not, let them know that you do, and expect them to represent you, not themselves. 

Support the NRA, they are our biggest lobbying support of our 2nd amendment rights.

Safe Shooting.

  1. Agreed. While I am a member of the NRA and do not always agree with their reasonings (and no, I am not referring to UBCs - those are a horrible idea, period), I find it to be absolutely nonsensical for any gun owner in this day and age to believe that (s)he will be able to retain her/his Second Amendment rights without the help of the NRA. They are the world's foremost authority on gun safety, and have been fighting this fight for us for far too long for us to not lend our support. Many of today's generation take it for granted that they can own a gun, when civilian firearm ownership is either highly regulated or completely outlawed in most other places in the world. Please, to all reading this who have not done so already: Join the NRA! Our complacency these past several years has made it too easy for anti-2A congressmen and legislators to pass a veritable barrage of harmful legislation in just a matter of months over just one widely publicized and horribly exploited tragedy. Every dollar you contribute helps, whether you know it or not.

    Don't care the NRA? Help the Gun Owners of America (GOA) instead. As the new kids on the block, they've made a name for themselves as "the only no-compromise gun lobby in Washington," and for group only a fraction of the size of the NRA, they have an excellent record of successfully defending the Second Amendment. The choice is yours, but don't rest on your laurels after one small victory in Congress. Evil never, EVER sleeps, and it's our responsibility to defend our rights tooth and nail at all times.
