Gun Control

As a veteran I consider my oath not mere words, but a solemn commitment and duty to both support and defend the Constitution, and I know you do too. The Constitution and the Declaration of Independence are what define the ideal of America.

People are Starving in Venezuela!

When a western journalist asked a Venezuelan activist “how does [the Venezuelan tyrant] retain enough support going forward to hang on to power? Where is his genuine source of support at this point?”

The answer was simple: “People with guns. That includes the military of course, which has been given enormous privileges during the last 18 years.” (1)

Do you get it? The people were disarmed through gun control, and now they are starving to death and can’t do anything about it! “Since April 2017, at least 163 pro-democracy protesters in Venezuela have been murdered by the Maduro dictatorship.” (2)

Reject any and all State legislation that would further infringe upon our God given Second Amendment right!

being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

The Second Amendment was established to protect every person’s God given right of self-protection. Therefore, infringement of the Second Amendment is not only a violation against individuals, but a crime against God.

262 Million people killed by their own governments in the 20th century...
“Government wars and exterminations in the twentieth century reached 262 million people killed by their own governments and 44 million people killed in wars.” (3)

PEOPLE CONTROL: Unarmed people are easier to control...
“Tyrants from Hitler to Mao to Stalin have sought to disarm their own citizens, for the simple reason that unarmed people are easier to control. Our Founders, having just expelled the British army, knew that the right to bear arms served as the guardian of every other right. This is the principle so often ignored by both sides in the gun control debate. Only armed citizens can ultimately resist tyrannical government.” (3)

I respectfully but strongly urge you to:
Reject any and all legislation that would further infringe upon our God given Second Amendment right!
Pass nullifying resolutions to any federal infringements upon our God given Second Amendment right!
Repeal the FOID Act.

Respectfully,

Molon Labe Pledge
We will never disarm. We will never surrender our military pattern, semi-automatic rifles and the full capacity magazines, parts, and ammunition that go with them. The fundamental purpose of the Second Amendment is to preserve the military power of We the People so we will have effective means to resist tyranny. Regardless of what unholy, unconstitutional filth issues from the mouths of oath breakers in “Mordor on the Potomac” our answer is MOLON LABE. [Come and Take them] ...
