Second Amendment Reminder for Obama

Let’s take a quick look at the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and then let’s remind the Democrat candidates for president about the amendment.

Amendment 2
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.

Take a look at the phrase “the people.” What amendments reference the people?

The First Amendment references the people and their right to peaceably assemble. The Fourth Amendment references the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures.

Amendment nine, 10 and 17 also reference rights of the people.

Question for Barack Obama. What part of the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed don’t you understand? From the Issues page.

He supports a national law against carrying concealed weapons. Will he allow us to carry at all?

Carrying a firearm for personal and family protection is the great equalizer when someone tries to hurt you. If you are a four-eleven female in a parking garage, in a mall, at church, or even at home, and a six-foot male tries to attack you, you can equalize the fight.

Someone who is properly trained to carry a firearm, who is not a felon, should be able to protect themselves. Period.

It’s clear, Obama want to take away the rights of the good guys to carry a weapon concealed. Criminals tend to not care about the law. So they will continue to use them. Guns are not going away.

Let’s watch to see if Obama changes his position as time gets closer to the election.
