I apologize this article is bit long, but we are dealing with a very complex subject, I think it is worth your time to read it.
Preface-Here is some facts to set the stage (I have include links to various sources):
1. The Second Amendment of Constitution: “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.“
2. Self Defense: An Inalienable Right to use force in order to preserve lives. http://freedomoutpost.com/self-defense-an-inalienable-right-that-the-second-amendment-guarantees-not-grants
3. Supreme Court Rules on June 27, 2005 that Police Do Not Have a Constitutional Duty to Protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a violation. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/28/politics/justices-rule-police-do-not-have-a-constitutional-duty-to-protect.html?_r=0
Which seems to me that we cannot count on the over-worked and under resourced police to save us; it is up to each of us to defend ourselves and our love ones!
4. The national average 911 response time11-12 minutes. http://freedomoutpost.com/when-seconds-count-police-are-minutes-awayor-your-911-call-goes-to-voicemail
How many lives could be lost during the 10-11 minutes prior to police arrival?
It is painfully shown by our recent tragic events of “Active Killers” at several “Gun Free Zones” (Sandy Hook, San Bernardino, Columbine, Orlando, Nice, Paris, Brussels…), hundreds of lives were lost because the victims were unable to defend themselves.
5. There are 14.5 million law-abiding gun owners in US and over one million in Texas that have been vetted and issued concealed carry permits; these armed citizens are the “First Responders” that have in the past and will save lives in the future.
Several of my friends are confused about how “Hellary” can destroy our firearm ownership if she is elected as President. In this article, I will provide as many sources as I can to backup my statements. It is worth your while to spend a few minutes read the material and be informed as a Pro 2nd Amendment person. Please share this information with your circle of influence. Here is my view on the subject:
Bear in mind that “Hellary” already said that “A National Gun Buyback Program Is ‘Worth Considering” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-gun-buybacks_us_56216331e4b02f6a900c5d67). Here is a take from NRA on “Hellary” hypocrisy, http://bearingarms.com/bob-o/2016/07/28/hillary-clinton-think-shes-important-enough-protect-guns-life-isnt/
Many people do not believe “Hellary” cannot do much in repeal the 2nd Amendment since it will require Congressional approval. Especially “Hellary” said on Wednesday, August 3, 2016 during her camping stop at Denver Colorado (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/aug/3/hillary-clinton-i-do-not-want-repeal-2nd-amendment/) “I do not want to repeal the 2nd Amendment”. She is actually honest for a change that she does not need to repeal the 2nd Amendment in order for her to destroy gun ownership. Here are at least two ways where if elected as President she can totally eliminates our gun rights:
1. “Hellary” can issue various anti-gun Executive Orders (http://www.cnbc.com/2014/01/28/executive-orders-what-they-are-and-how-they-work.html) restrict or eliminate gun rights therefore bypass the Congress completely.
2. Our next President will appointment at least one new Supreme Court justices to replace our beloved Judge Scalia (http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-next-president-could-reshape-the-supreme-court/) who was instrumental in the landmark 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller decision. In this decision the Supreme Court of the United States held in a 5-4 decision that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution applies to federal enclaves and protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.
It is important to note that nearly half of the court-four of the eight remaining Supreme Court justices has served on it for 20 to 30 years and are either over the age of 80 or approaching it. As you can see, if “Hellary” stacked the Supreme Court with anti-2nd Amendment justices, these extreme liberals can simply “reinterpret” the 2nd Amendment of the Right to Bear Arms is not for individual citizens but it is intended for a regulated militia (National Guards) and military. This is so important that people need to realize the impact is not just next four or eight years of “Hellary” Presidency, it is the next 30-40 years of our Nation’s gun laws as per newly appointed Supreme Court justices by “Hellary”.
Please spend some time to research the subject and share this information if you agree. Let’s defeat “Hellary” and elect Donald Trump!
