Second Amendment Rights

April 10, 2013

I found this in my SPAM folder today:
=============================================
Please find an important message from Senator Mitch McConnell below:

Dear Friend,

Thank you for joining me in defending our right to bear arms. Right now, President Obama’s allies in the anti-gun lobby are doing everything in their power to take away our Second Amendment rights.

The right to protect our family and ourselves from whatever threats we may encounter is precious, and we must defend it from Washington liberals.

They want to prevent law-abiding Americans from possessing a firearm while making it easier for criminals to use one against us.

As the Republican Leader in the Senate, I am working with fellow conservatives to fight back on the left’s attacks but I need your help to do so. If you believe that our Second Amendment rights are worth fighting for, will you please donate $5 to our cause?

The Second Amendment ended the “gun debate,” and it’s time for Democrats to understand that. Make no mistake about it; the far-left are using their allies in the Senate, the media, and White House to work to limit your ability to own a firearm.

Gun owners and Second Amendment supporters have been called “stupid” by Piers Morgan, and “heartless mother*****” by Jim Carrey. This vitriol from the left must be combated.

For Freedom,

Mitch McConnell

Vitriol? How about Incendiary? The blatant lies about “… taking away Second Amendment rights” really need to stop. I haven’t seen any evidence of anyone messing with Second Amendment rights.

I’m an NRA member; I enjoy target shooting. But, until December 14, 2012, I didn’t know what an AR-15 rifle was. I assumed a rifle which looked like that was a military weapon. I was amazed to learn that this AR-15 was readily available in sporting goods stores, and had become popular among some residents in the Northeast, even across the U.S.

Curious, so I signed into YouTube, typed AR-15 into the search box, and it returned 7.6 Million hits!

I clicked onto a few of the video links, and it opened up a whole new world for me!

Can you imagine a young person who likes to play violent video games – say, Resident Evil 4 – clicking onto this YouTube video?

This is hunting? Home protection? Target shooting?

Second Amendment rights?

Let’s be honest with each other if we ever expect to have a reasonable and rational resolution to this debate…..
