What we need in our country are guns, guns, and more guns.
The Second Amendment states "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
The greatest fear of any Marxist totalitarian government is gun toting citizens. This country was not founded, conquered and settled by hippies giving the peace sign to defeat the Indians, French troops, and English soldiers, but patriotic and rugged farmers and frontiersman opened America to be settled with an axe to clear the land and a gun to protect what they had built. During this time of American history sons, daughters, and mothers were taught to shoot a gun by the fathers in order to protect and provide for the household. This is an excellent example for fathers to follow today. After America gained a toehold on the Eastern part of this country the Westward expansion would have never taken place without "the right of the people to keep and bear arms."
Hitler could not have accomplished his evil deed of annihilating six million Jews if he had not first disarmed the citizens of Germany. Every Marxist totalitarian government makes it a priority to confiscate the guns of its people so it can have complete control in every area of the society.
The perpetrators of the cold blooded murders at Columbine High School and Virginia Tech could have been stopped from killing as many people as they did if the teachers on the scene at the time were permitted to carry a gun. Also in Aurora, Colorado, at the Century 16 Theater if there were people that were allowed to carry concealed weapons in the theater where the nut killed several people he probably would have been killed before he completed his heinous crime.
At New Life Church in Colorado Springs in 2007 a crazy eyed man entered the church intent on slaughtering countless lives when a woman who was carrying a concealed weapon opened fire on him and wounded him thereby stopping him before he had killed more than two people. Later the police confirmed that this lunatic was carrying one thousand rounds of ammunition at the time of the church attack. Recently, an apparent robbery in Ocala, Florida, was stopped at a place of business when a man pulled his concealed gun to challenge the robber and sent him running and tripping over his own feet to get away. The gun hating flower children do not want to talk about the many lives that guns in the possession of lawabiding citizens saves in this country every year.
An evangelist that I know gave this testimony about how the gun he carries probably saved his life and also those in his family. It was late at night when he and his family were traveling in their motor home to the next appointed church that he would be having services for. When he tried to use his cell phone he couldn't get a signal to operate it. This evangelist saw a closed gas station and on the property there was a pay phone so he drove his motor home into the lot to use the phone. He got out of the motor home and was walking to the pay phone when a car with four black men in it stopped behind him and got out of the car. They started walking slowly toward him and he quickly realized that they were not there to welcome him to the town. The apparent leader of these thugs walked to within arms length of this evangelist when the preacher quickly drew his gun from underneath his sport coat and put the barrel of the gun under this man's nose. The evangelist simply said, “I think you had better leave,” and he said there were four black streaks on the run to get to their car. This car left a trail of burnt rubber and these would-be attackers never looked back. The evangelist knew beyond a doubt he had just saved all the lives of his family by carrying a gun.
