BELIEVE NOTHING OF WHAT YOU HEAR FROM PEOPLE WITH AN AGENDA
WITHOUT FIRST PROVING IT FOR YOURSELF

Everyone seems to be a con-artist these days - so you should ask:

1. What does the second Amendment say?

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.

2. What does "infringed" mean?

Act so as to limit or undermine (something); encroach on: "infringe on his privacy".

3. What's all this noise about the founding fathers not meaning that private citizens should have gun rights, that they were referring to government militias and that they were referring to hunting rights, etc.?

I'll give you the actual words of the co-sponsors of the second Amendment and those who supported it:

"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, 1788)

"A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves …"- Richard Henry Lee (writing in Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic, Letter XVIII, May, 1788)

"The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them." Zachariah Johnson (Elliot's Debates, vol. 3 "The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution")

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms; …" - Samuel Adams (quoted in the Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20, 1789, "Propositions submitted to the Convention of this State")

Got that?

See ... you can be educated.

Nothing good can come from lies and propaganda nor the subversion of God-given rights and the rule of law.

We live in a world where virtually everything we hear is suspect ... propaganda delivered by people who thirst for power and their willing agents.

These are very bad, extremely vicious, and in so many instances very stupid and/or ignorant people.

Educate yourself. Things are getting very bad and you'll have to have a clear head and an informed mind to avoid being swallowed up.

Of course, if you are a liberal, it should go without saying ... ignore the above. Facts mean nothing to you, I know, and I might as well be asking you to toss manhole covers over your shoulders than digest a simple statement of truth.
