Thing on the TV about the woman being attacked by a guy she met on match.com. She broke it off, he broke into her house and beat her until she had to be hospitalized. What I want to know is why didn't she shoot him? She could have done that and it would never have made the news. She failed to properly defend herself or to be prepared. That is one of the reasons we have the 2nd amendment. It's not the only one by far and in fact is one of the relatively minor reasons. Our country's founders intended us to be as well armed as our military. Our revolutionary war started when the British soldiers were on their way to confiscate the colonist's arms.

"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 first part, phrases 1 and 2, tell you why we have the second amendment. The second part, phrases 3 and 4 tell you how it is done.

If the government tells you that you can't buy a particular kind of arm, be it a sword, a crossbow, a knife, or any kind of gun, they are infringing on your right to keep arms. If the government tells you where you can or cannot carry any weapon you own, then they are infringing on your right to bear arms. There are NO legal gun laws in this country.

We are the militia, you are the militia. The states can call up the militia but arguments that the militia is the national guard are false.

The wise people who wrote our constitution intended that the citizens be as well armed as soldiers, the same as Switzerland is today. That means full automatic weapons and any other weapons a person can physically carry.

As we mark the Second Inauguration of the first American black president, it is important to celebrate our successes in achieving the protection of civil rights for all people. But, sadly, this president has a terrible record on civil rights.

How about that contraception mandate? Millions and millions of Christians no longer have the right to exercise their religion, part of their First Amendment rights, thanks to this president.

After Obama got finished attacking the First Amendment, he’s now on to the Second Amendment. As Governor Mitt Romney predicted during his presidential campaign against this president, Obama might have more “flexibility”...
