Sent this to my congressman and both senators yesterday:
The socialist in the White House is making another assault on the constitution of this republic with his initiatives against the 2nd amendment. A step that is not unexpected as all tyrants eventually try to disarm the citizens so their ability to resist tyranny is diminished. All the data that I have seen about the last “Assault Weapon Ban” indicates that the ban accomplished nothing. This latest circus is about control and power over the citizens of this country pure and simple. Thomas Jefferson said it best when he said of the 2nd amendment: “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”. I will not give up my arms!
I helped elect you and when you took your oath of office you swore to defend and protect the constitution of this republic. I would hope that you will do so when any vote is taken that further infringes on the rights of the citizens of this country. This run away government must be held in check and the rights of the citizens protected. Thomas Jefferson also said: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants”. He knew this day would come and he feared for the ability of the Republic to withstand the madness that power brings to some. I also fear for the future of the republic when I watch the insanity in government today--especially the runaway spending and debt, and the continued attacks on the constitution.
