Their is no justification for the usurpation of the 2nd Amendment. No amount of school shootings or police officer killings can justify stealing the rights of 314 million people. Do you realize that the amount of murders by firearms annually represents 0.0035% [35 ten-thousandths] of the population? When judged against the scope and importance of the 2nd Amendment, the numbers bear no significance. And this is why firearm legislation is only ever addressed after some tragedy. Socialists know it is the only way to maintain the illusion of justification.
The 2nd Amendment is clear and unequivocally states that the government shall not infringe the right to own and carry firearms. Foolishly, the Court upheld the first attack on this right and has yet to right this wrong The truth cannot be whitewashed by the Court - the 2nd Amendment does not say the government shall not interfere except in cases where it involves commerce.
As mentioned in his State of the Union address, the President intends to act, as one man against a nation of 314 million. One man will, in his wisdom, continue to strip the rights of an entire nation. The 2nd Amendment is the key to securing all other liberties. The erosion of this right must not only be halted, but the right must be fully restored. The time has come for the People to fulfill the prophecy - of the DHS of being a bunch of pissed off and dangerous citizens - and to demand the immediate full-restoration of the 2nd Amendment. If our demands fall on deaf ears, then we must be willing to answer the call-to-arms and to take back our right. This does not mean we need a armed revolution, but it may mean we need an armed confrontation. After all, the government has no right to interfere with carrying firearms, in any place, time, or manner.
