The Second Amendment Makes All the Others Possible

” (Trump) recently released a paper outlining his position on gun ownership. It began, “The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.” The paper explains that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that preexisted both the government and the Constitution. It also notes that government didn’t create the right and therefore cannot take it away. In the paper he referred to the Second Amendment as “America’s first freedom.” He pointed out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear.

In the paper the President proposed strengthening and expanding laws allowing law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves from criminals using their own guns, without fear of repercussion from the government. Specifically he said he wanted to do away with pointless and ineffective gun and magazine bans instead suggesting that we fix the current background check system already in place, rather than expanding a broken system.

We have been on the wrong path. Hopefully, we are now on the right path. No matter who leads or where they ask us to follow we must remember that the Second Amendment makes all the others possible. It might also be helpful to remember that Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.””

Dr. Robert Owens Chronicles the History of the Future

Why do I need a permit to do what the Constitution says I have a right to do?

If States passed laws making the first amendment null and void do you think we might hear about it?  If a permit was required to speak your mind do you think anyone would protest?

These are all good questions.  What we need is some good answers.

The Second Amendment decrees: “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 Progressives have been telling us for a long time that this should only apply to the National Guard which they contend is the twenty-first century equivalent of a well-regulated militia.  In the landmark Supreme Court decision McDonald v. Chicago the majority ruled that neither the Federal Government nor the States had a right to prevent…

Christ the Foundation

StopAndPrayTV

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.” (1 Corinthians 3:11)

The only sure and lasting foundation for either a Christian institution or an individual Christian life is the Lord Jesus Christ. No other foundation will endure in that coming day when “the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is” (v. 13).

It is vital, therefore, to build on the foundation that Christ Himself has laid. This is laid in three courses, each of which is essential for its permanence. First of all, we must acknowledge with the apostle that “Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands” (Hebrews 1:10). He is the Creator of all things, and therefore Lord over all.

Second, we must acknowledge with Peter that we have been “redeemed . . …

CHECK OUT GABBY GIFFORDS’ DUMB NEW ANTI-GUN CAMPIAGN

Give Me Liberty

H/T DownTrend.com.

Gabby’s last active brain cell has died.

Empty can Gabby Giffords and her doofus husband Mark Kelly claim they are huge supporters of the 2nd Amendment and yet spend all of their time and other people’s money pushing for unconstitutional gun control. Speaking of things that make no sense, the Giffords/Kelly anti-gun group Americans for Responsible Solutions have unveiled a new ad campaign to further restrict our right to keep and bear arms.

What theses gun-grabbers did was a create a gun control poster and printed it on bullet-proof Kevlar to make a pointless point.

“This poster stops bullets because our gun laws don’t” reads the poster.

I hate to break it to Gabby because she has that hole in her head, but no law is going to stop a bullet. The only thing laws stop are law-abiding people from breaking the law. She could get her wish…
