A chance to save the Second Amendment

This from the Washington Post:

“The Supreme Court announced yesterday (Tuesday) that it will determine whether the District of Columbia’s strict firearms law violates the Constitution, a decision that will raise the politically and culturally divisive issue of gun control just in time for the 2008 elections.”

This is a very important bill and is a chance to see our new conservative judges at work. Especially considering that this is one of the most important amendments to the Constitution.

People get caught up with this amendment and think that it gives hunters the freedom to hunt. This isn’t even the beginning of the creation of this amendment.

This is what it says:

“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 founding fathers knew that the government could get out of hand. They lived through a period in which it did. This amendment protect them from that.

This is the quote from the Virginia Declaration of Rights, which was what the Constitution was based off of:

That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state…”

The part that really sticks out to me is the “safe defense of a free state.” During the Civil War, a free state is a state without slavery. The government can enslave people at anytime. Some argue that we are moving towards that with the Patriot Act and constant regulation. Slavery of their own people. Slavery that we have seen in most governments in history, except for a small few. Even they end in slavery or failure.

A free state to the Virginia Declaration of Rights is a state without restraints on their people. A state in which people are free to do whatever they want. The “free state” here is a state without slavery.

As the government tightens their grip on our freedom, we have the right to tighten our grip on our guns.

We are the checks and balance that you do not learn about in your grammar schools.

If the government gets out of line, shoot it and start over again.

I urge the U.S. Supreme Court to rule that the D.C. gun ban is against the Constitution and I urge the Judges to not hold back in create a standard for all gun cases to come.

We should end all control on our guns.
