                                        The Second Amendment Represents


The Second Amendment states, "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."

                                                                            *            *            *

​The time has come for action regarding the Second Amendment -- the right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment has enemies because freedom has enemies.

Let me tell you, even if you never own or even want to own a gun, it is vital, it is indispensible to you, whether or not you ever do actually own a gun, that you are truly able to exercise your right to keep and bear arms. Your right to keep and bear arms represents the fact that the government works for you, not you for the government.

The fact that some of our leaders want to make laws that infringe on your right to keep and bear arms vividly demonstrates the fact that they want you to work for them. Thomas Jefferson made it ever so clear when he said that, "Those who hammer their swords into plowshares will work for those who do not."

The colonial patriots hammered their plowhares into swords because they knew that they had the right to the freedom of self-determination, as so eloquently expressed in the Declaration of Independence as the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The battle for freedom continues. I assure you that as they very carefully chip away at the Bill of Rights, those anti-gun leaders want to put you in chains. And those anti-gun laws of theirs are obvious links in those chains. We all need to remember that history has clearly and repeatedly shown that disarming the law abiding citizens is the essential first step in creating a police state.

Also, they wish the Second Amendment gone because its removal would be a great representational disempowering. As part of overpowering Federal control, anti-gun leaders desire its removal as a stepping stone on the pathway to nullifying the Bill of Rights in its entirety. The forces of evil seek to destroy our precious fundamentals. The slightest diminishing of an element of the Bill of Rights becomes a precedent -- a point of leverage toward the elimination of Freedom. The end of Liberty.

As your Congressman, I will continue to fight for your right to keep and bear arms. Now, in many ways the pen is mightier than the sword. So, I strongly encourage you to use your pen in writing letters to your legislators and your local newspapers-- as you join the battle for freedom. The time has come.
