Shock News : Destroying The Bill Of Rights Does Not Make America Safe

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither and will lose both.

– Benjamin Franklin

Obama should be encouraging law-abiding Americans to be prepared to defend their country, not taking away their ability to do so. The founding fathers recognized that a well armed citizenry comprised “the militia” which made America safe.

That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defence of a free state; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided, as dangerous to liberty; and that, in all cases, the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

Virginia Bill of Rights

“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.”

— George Mason, in Debates in Virginia Convention on Ratification of the Constitution, Elliot, Vol. 3, June 16, 1788

    The liberal interpretation of a “militia” is a well armed DHS, ready to swoop down on freedom loving American citizens.

    Destroying The Bill Of Rights Keeps America Elitists Safe.

    They will be the only people with power, money, and armament.

    This post is scary enough, but read the multiple article updates, search for “4/16/”

    They tried to paint the transfer of Missouri’s entire CCW database as an SSA investigation.

    Now it appears ATF was the requester all along. During days of hearings, no one disclosed this information.

    it is quite sweet that nine senate Democrats joined the Republicans in voting down the liberal feel good gun control bill. It’s too bad the Colorado legislature has become brain dead. Hopefully you residents will get some relief next year…
