Worth Repeating: Our Second Ammendment Rights

Tomorrow I'll be capitalizing upon my Second Amendment rights by taking a CCW class. Be ye warned, rapists, murderers, and thieves, because this girl is gonna be packin' heat! 

In honor of that, I am repeating this post from about a year ago...

I encourage you, as the world and our country becomes more and more lawless, to arm yourselves, too.  You are the first line of protection for your own family.

Take advantage of your rights while you have them, my friends.  The lawlessness is growing:  remember that in the last week alone, there were ELEVEN policemen killed in the line of duty.  Unreal.

We believe...

In the

Second Amendment




We appreciate that our forefathers saw the wisdom in the right of the individual. And even more their wisdom that the right of that individual included one to defend itself and its family and belongings.

It is not possible to regulate guns or outlaw guns for the citizens, and those including the outlaw and have good results. A criminal will always find a way to get a weapon. Therefore, we should always have the right to defend ourselves.

I find it complete ignorance to listen to someone try to argue away my right to a firearm. There is no defense for such a thing. None. I look at people who want to do away with gun rights as ignorant, weak cowards. It's a leg under our freedoms, without it, our freedoms are gone.

My little 5'2"sister once had to pull a revolver on a 6'4" nut that was at her door, threatening to burn down her house. Her little children and mine were in that home. She had no reason to believe this individual would not make good on his threat. Am I thankful she believed in the second amendment? You betcha!

I will always be thankful to my sister because she went and pulled out that revolver, loaded that sucker and pointed it at the violent piece of rage that was at her door and told him if he touched that door she would blow his head off, and she meant it.

She was protecting her babies and mine; that big guy had no other reason to be afraid of my little sister. Thank you God, for the wisdom of our forefathers for preserving that right for us!

This is my heat-packin' daughter who's now 27, married and a mommy herself.   She got her CCW back when she had to work and drive in a very undesirable location in an old industrial part of town. She learned to shoot from dad since she was a little girl.

Our forefathers knew that armed citizenry is sometimes the only thing that will keep a government (and a roaming criminal!) honest.  

Here in Michigan, our recently replaced governor (Jennifer Granholm-D) thought that one place she could cut the budget was by releasing a whole lot of prisoners (felons of all kinds!).  

Brilliant, right?  Thousands of them are now on the loose and the crime rate is not going to go down.  Many of them have committed violent crime yet again...our unemployment is high and a lot of the larger cities they are released to are cutting police budgets drastically to the point of being dangerous.

We have budgets shrinking at an alarming rate--so the situation is not going to get better soon.  I don't think you'll ever be sorry to be able to protect yourself and your belongings and property.

These are some good words from John Adams:

"Be not intimidated....from publishing with the utmost freedom whatever can be warranted by the laws of your country; nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberty by any pretenses of politeness, delicacy or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery, and cowardice."

AMEN to that Joni - you go girl! I do not understand why people think that taking away these rights would make us safer when criminals will always be able to do whatever they want to do - be it buy guns or whatever. We all need to have the right to protect our homes and our families by whatever means.

way to go! I think my husband said there have been 15 dead since the new year, it is so unreal! Loving the blog!

Amen, Amen, Amen...way to speak up for our Second Amendment Right! You are right, the criminal will always find a way to find a gun!

Mary said...

Amen, sister. Your blog is always one of my favorites - I never miss a word you say!

mary your sis said...

Wouldn't it be cool if someone started statistics on how many lives had been SAVED by using guns? It would boggle the mind and refute conventional wisdom, that's for sure!

Right on girl! It's broken my heart to see what has become of my beautiful Michigan under Granholm's reign. I'm retiring my job in the NWT and heading back to Ontario. The 1st thing I plan to do is check on getting a gun license. Of course it's more in hopes of bagging a moose! I'm so blessed by your blog-your a real kindred spirit. Kimberly

Amen! Thank you for this post!

AMEN to this post! I've taken my concealed weapons class and am going to get my permit to carry when we get home. I've pulled a gun on two punks who were trying to decide which one would rape me first. There's nothing sweeter than the sound of a round being chambered and then the statement coming from me, "y'all hurry up and decide so I can begin shooting."
Needless to say, they both left in a hurry.

Donna said...

Yes, ma'am! I believe in the 2nd amendment!!! I don't have a carry permit, but we keep guns in the house and know how to use them, just in case!

Couldn't agree with you more. I was talking to our financial advisor the other day. I told I was afraid to keep too much cash in banks in case they fail. He said if banks fail we would all be in this together. I told him then I was investing in soup. He laughed, I then said soup and guns to defend my soup. A strange look came over his face, like he just "got it"
