America has become a nation of violence. More gun control laws are not the answer to stop more tragic events like the one that recently took place at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. The spiritual decay of our nation is the number one cause of the great increase in violence that Americans have witnessed and suffered from. Prayer and Bible reading were removed from the public school systems decades ago. Discipline in the form of corporal punishment in the schools is not allowed anymore. Hollywood has saturated the minds of the youth of America with bloody violent scenes that have desensitized them about the value of human life. Over fifty-five million unborn babies have been slaughtered in their mothers womb since 1973. Cold-blooded murders are commonplace throughout America.
What we need in our country are guns, guns, and more guns In the hands of law-abiding cizitens.
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 people. 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 frontiersmen opened America to be settled with an axe to clear the land and a gun to protect what they had built. 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."
Obama and his anti - American forces want to confiscate our guns. Gun Control has it's roots in communism and Nazism. Communist dictators throughout the world could not have committed the atrocities they did if they had not disarmed the people first. Hitler confiscated the guns of the German people with the enforcement of his secret police. He then proceeded to turn Germany into a military state, and in the process, he ordered the annihilation of six million Jews. When there remains the possibility of the American people rising up as an armed militia, as stated in the Second Amendment in our Constitution, the Marxists will never take over America.
We won the Revolutionary War against mother England because the average American colonial citizen had a gun and a will to be free from the oppressive hand of the British. Many pastors of churches during that time answered the call for freedom as they marched off to war against England with a gun in one hand and a Bible in the other hand.
Survey data shows that guns are used by Americans three times more to defend themselves than they are used to commit crimes. The leftist politicians and their media friends do not like to talk about how guns have saved thousands of lives a year. The leftist media such as the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, and the New York Times very seldom print a news story where an individual who had a gun in his possession was able to protect himself from being robbed or assaulted. But these same news outlets fill their newspapers with news stories of individuals who use guns to kill, rape, and rob. Violence helps these leftist news companies sell newspapers, and it also helps them campaign against individual gun ownership. Gun possession by Americans has saved lives of many family members during home invasions by intruders. Even when a gun owner shows his weapon during an anticipated robbery many times the crime fails before it starts. There are not enough policemen to protect the citizens of this country from the great amount of crimes that are committed on a daily basis. Therefore, it is the personal right ( Second Amendment) and responsibility of every American to protect himself, his family, and his property.
The perpetrators of the murders at Columbine High School, Virginia Tech, and Sandy Hook Elementary School 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.
The Bible says in Romans 3:23, " For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. " (King James Bible)
