Whether you realize it or not, you can have the power of a super hero when you are attacked. It’s true! The 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution empowers all Americans with the right to bear arms.
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “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.”
Many people who are afraid of guns do so out of a fear of the unknown. Perhaps they’ve never fired a weapon or been exposed to game hunting and they see it as a foreign past time. A fearful attitude is an unfortunate side effect of a society that has become less and less tolerant of weapons. And it is a society that over-estimates the desire and ability of the government to protect you. If you wait for the government to come rescue you in a crisis, you may be sadly disappointed, much like those who experienced Hurricane Katrina and Sandy.
We at Privacyliving.com believe that our Founding Fathers in the United States created the 2nd Amendment to solidify an American’s eternal right to defend themselves. And we believe that history has shown that the gun is the great equalizer, allowing a smaller, weaker defender to close the physical gap against one who would cause harm to him or her. We can all imagine a person who is 5’2’’ in height, being in bed at home at 2 am when a bigger, 6’2” intruder, begins kicking in the front door. Prior to the advent of the gun, the individual defending the home would have to physically go against the bigger intruder, or overwhelm them with numbers. And 9 times out of 10, we can predict who wins.
But when the smaller person is waiting behind a locked door with a 12 gauge shotgun, the intruder will either leave upon seeing the weapon, or not live to tell the tale. And most burglars know the sound of a shotgun being racked and fired; it’s a terrifying sound, letting them know that they have entered the wrong house and it’s time to go home because the gun always wins.
No matter what your political leanings are, you should know that President Obama is working hard to restrict and take away American’s right to own guns. He’s been doing this most of his presidency and he’s not giving up. And in the future, there could be a time where, much like Australia and the United Kingdom, gun ownership is nearly illegal.
Obama Gun Proposals:
Don’t pass up the opportunity to exercise your 2nd Amendment Right as an American. Learn to shoot, take lessons at your local shooting range, practice gun safety and sleep better at night like we do. There may be a time in the future where we don’t sleep so well.
