With so many issues vying for our attention on a daily basis, why focus on the 2nd Amendment? I mean really, we have over 300 million souls in America and at least as many guns in circulation. It’s not like they will all disappear overnight or even over the next decade or two, right? Why not focus our energy on more pressing issues?
Well, let me tell you why. Gun rights are the last bastion of liberty left in America. Any honest analysis of America today will show you that virtually ALL of our other liberties, guaranteed by the Constitution, have been all but eliminated. The controlling tentacles of the federal leviathan have encroached upon every aspect of traditional American freedom and liberty. The “right to life” is being aborted in astronomical numbers. The pursuit of happiness, commonly linked to property ownership, is under constant attack through eminent domain abuse, property taxation and EPA regulations to name a few. Free speech no longer exists, having succumbed to the pressures of political correctness. Freedom of religion, or at least religious expression in public, is vilified and shunned. Innocent until proven guilty has been perverted by the media to guilty until proven innocent, especially if a gun was involved. Shall I go on?
