Let’s never forget

I am forwarding President Trump a copy of Andrew P. Napolitano’s excellent opinion piece in the Sun Gazette on Aug. 14 titled, “A few words about guns and personal liberty.” President Trump’s lips once uttered these words: “no more gun control legislation.” I hope he remembers and vetoes any legislation that violates our Second amendment, like Universal Background Checks, Red Flag Laws, and banning semi-automatic rifles and large magazines. He may become another one-term president if he fails to read the lips of millions of gun owners whose constitutional rights are being violated, because of criminals who ignore the 22,000 local, state, and federal gun control laws.

Thomas Jefferson stated, “No freeman shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. James Madison was right when he said, “The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, forms a barrier against the enterprise of ambition.” Our socialistic representatives should be mindful of America’s 100 million gun owners who possess 350 million firearms, 16 million of those are semi-automatic rifles, 20 million citizens with concealed carry permits, and 16 states that allow constitutional carry.

Millions of Chinese were murdered by Mao Zedong, their leader who stated, “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun, and the gun must never be allowed to dominate their party.” Our Founders provided Americans with the Second amendment that enumerates the supremacy of “people power” which also grows out of the barrel of a gun, and the danger, where there is any, according to Joe Barlow’s political writings, is “only to government, not to society.”

Americans should never forget! Our government agencies, FBI, BATF and the military with tanks and banned CS gas, shot, gassed and cremated 82 Branch Davidians, including 23 children, in their religious compound at Waco, Texas, in 1993, over “alleged” child abuse, drugs and firearm violations. Americans have awakened! Sheriffs are refusing to obey confiscation orders under the Red Flag Laws because they are unconstitutional and present a danger to themselves and the accused when enforced. Townships are becoming gun sanctuaries by refusing to comply with unconstitutional firearm laws. Gun owners by the millions in New York, California and Connecticut have refused to register their semi-automatic rifles to prevent them from being banned later and then confiscated. Remember! George Washington defied England’s registering, banning, and confiscation of the Colonists firearms by stating, “A free people ought to be armed.”
