President Obama and his allies don't understand how the United States rose from a colony of Britain to a nation of international prominence. They are not operating in the best interests of the United States and its citizens.
Dismantling the 2nd Amendment and the Constitution is a recipe for slavery in the hands of an overly-powerful national government. Our Constitution only works if we are "a moral and religious people." That is the heart of our problem. We cannot ignore Almighty God and His moral laws and not reap the consequences of either slavery (tyranny) or anarchy.
