(Guns Save Life) – President Obama and gun control advocates have said we must do something to control guns “even if it saves one life.” At what point did one life become more important than the civil rights of 300 million people?
Gun control advocates would judge a hundred million innocent gun owners guilty for the actions of a few evildoers.
This is the antithesis of justice. William Blackstone said, “It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.”
This country was founded on the principles of individual responsibility and freedom.
However, freedom-hating leftists (the so-called “progressives”) blame society as a whole for the actions of the criminal. The criminal was “raised in a broken home”, “raised in poverty”, “lost in the education system”, as if society didn’t do enough and is to blame for the criminal actions of the individual.
The next step after individual responsibility is gone is the removal of individual rights. This has already started with the Patriot Act. The government no longer needs a warrant for search of your individual information, or to eavesdrop and track you. If they brand you a terrorist you may be held indefinitely without charges being filed.
We as Americans have let our government do this, eroding our fourth, fifth and sixth amendment rights. Now the government wants to further erode the second amendment rights as well and give us more racist and classist gun control.
Fighting for the second amendment does not make you a gun advocate, as the media would label you. Fighting for the second amendment makes you an advocate of the Constitution of the United States and individual rights. Those who join in fighting for the second amendment are today’s civil rights advocates, fighting for the individual rights of all Americans.
