Your Personal Second Amendment Rights
"Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" Patrick Henry, American Patriot
In the debates in every city across the country in regards to the second amendment is not just about this one constitutional issue, it is in reality a debate about our freedoms, our inalienable rights as citizens of this great country. Whether it is by a foreign power or our own citizens being stripped of their rights to possess and bear arms, our staff has seen this on the battlefield as soldiers and on our streets as law enforcement officers.
Many of us at US Precision Defense know what it is to deal with tyranny first hand; we know how a criminal act can be devastating and the catastrophic consequences of what happens when people lose their rights to self-defense. Join us in the fight to protect our constitutional rights.
Your Second Amendment Rights
"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people? To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them." George Mason, Co-author of the Second Amendment during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788. Regulation of guns should be measured, minimal and aimed at criminals, not law-abiding citizens. The Second Amendment belongs to us as individual citizens. It does not belong to a city or a state. It does not exist for the liberal media and politicians to trample on and to interpret to meet their own personal agendas.
We must always remember that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting, it is misleading for politicians to frame their Second Amendment arguments by voicing support for those who hunt game. The Second Amendment has a much broader purpose. Its original intent was to protect against tyranny and to ensure the rights of our citizens and to safeguard our very own lives and property. This is a right given to us by our Founding Fathers “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed”.
What everyone and every states legislatures must eventually learn, is that a modern day rebellion can happen, at the ballot box. Join US Precision Defense in the fight to preserve our second amendment rights.
When learning about the Second Amendment one will learn that the patriarchs of our young nation debated certain inalienable rights, one leading figure eloquently stated the following: “Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” Those words were spoken by our first president, George Washington.
It seems that some of our politicians, our elected officials forget that we put them into office with our votes, they forget that when they took their oath of office, a sacred oath that included they would uphold and defend the Constitutions of the United States. This oath did not allow for selective support, they can’t pick and choose which of the amendments they will or will not defend, or what portion of the Bill Of Rights they do or do not agree with. Many politicians forget one simple fact; The Second Amendment has been a part of our constitutional fabric for centuries and remains in place to protect the innocent.
Some of our political representatives who question the original intent of the Second Amendment and want to place an undue burden on our rights to bear arms forget that criminals will always have the ability to find weapons, legally or illegally. Our system of laws should not have the negative impact on our ability, the law-abiding citizens to protect ourselves. The Second Amendment is not a political football; it is a cornerstone of our Bill of Rights.
Our citizens have a right to protect our lives and our property, and the right to bear arms is a critical component of our intrinsic value as Americans that we all cherish. Unfortunately, it is not difficult to imagine a scenario when local, state, and federal law enforcement may be insufficient to protect against imminent danger, and when we must have the ability to defend ourselves, with firearms if we so choose.
