Over the past month or so I have been demonized as a lot of things, but the strangest accusation of them all is that I am against the Second Amendment.
Let's get this straight--- as far as I read it, The Constitution not only guarantees the right of Americans to keep and bear arms, it infers the responsibility to do so. "Federal United States Citizens" are not afforded any such rights or responsibilities, since "Congress" acting as the plenary oligarchy in charge of the District of Columbia rules their lives, but for Americans, it's different.
I believe that those who DON'T keep and bear arms and who DON'T step up to the responsibility to defend themselves, their neighbors, and their country, are avoiding their duty. Clearly, the shooters in this most recent violence in Paris yesterday stood around for long periods of time, just shooting innocent people, reloading, shooting some more.... if the majority of people in that theater had had guns and fired back, none of that would have been possible. The would-be shooters would have been blasted to where they were going anyway, and a lot of lives would have been saved.
We, Americans, had to carry guns in the Wild West, and it is coming back to that. There is no way for the police to be everywhere, all the time. We have to be responsible for our own safety, and as much as possible, the safety of others around us. My response is to sign myself and my family up for a refresher Gun Safety and Home Security Course, thank you, very much.
