Second Amendment Rights

The progressive’s systematic destruction of America’s social norms so as to advance their socialist and political agenda is the single most significant factor behind what is becoming unfettered lawlessness in America including firearm related deaths.

The 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states that “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.”  In Federalist Papers #1, Alexander Hamilton pointed out that those who would overturn the liberties of a republic will advance such a sinister effort by groveling to the people’s fears and sympathies, but it is those supposed benefactors that ultimately end up as tyrants.  Understanding this risk, the founders made a covenant with the states and individual citizens that they will always be entitled to bear arms to ensure, in part, that those who enter into government service will never be able to usurp the will of the people and overthrow the guarantees of the U.S. Constitution as well as to protect their families and property.

While there has been a notable rise in mass shootings in recent years, the study of this phenomenon has been tainted by political agendas and by those who would encourage a rush to judgment so as to ultimately abolish our protections afforded by the 2nd Amendment. The debate has also been framed so that many consequently fail to consider the facts that (1) even though firearms were more accessible 60 years ago, the mass shooting incidents we have witnessed recently were unthinkable and unheard of in those times, (2) while there are currently nearly 40,000 gun related deaths per year, there are more than 500,000 defensive uses with firearms each year resulting in substantial preservation of life, (3) approximately 64% of firearms related deaths were committed with handguns as opposed to “military style” rifles that gun activists seek to ban, (4) more than 25% of murders are committed by foreign nationals, and (5) there is no evidence to show that if an individual intends on committing mass murder, the lack of access to a firearm would make a material difference to the outcome; for example, 3,000 Americans lost their life on September 11, 2001 in the largest mass murder event in the history of the country and not a single shot was fired
