IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.-----
“We the People”"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

When you ask the average American, “Are you in favor of background checks for people buying guns?”, the obvious answer will be yes. As with all “polls” however, when you adjust the question to reflect the hidden details, you get a different (and more educated) answer. My point is that the President’s assertions about American’s feelings on gun control are skewed and highly political to say the least. Moreover, how in the world can we have a logical discussion on making our children and our nation safer, when our ideological chief executive’s contribution is to exploit the parents of Sandy Hook by flying them around from sound-bite to sound-bite on Air force One.
If there is anyone out there who believes the President of the United States cares about anything other than positioning himself politically by attempting to demonize and divide the opposition, please remove your head from the partisan sand before you suffocate.
“This is not about me.” Really Mr. President? I think this is all about you.
A horrible and sickening event occurred in Newtown Connecticut this past December. A deranged person shot and killed innocent women and children at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Consequently, there is little doubt the shock and despair associated with that incident will be with the families of the lost, as well as the nation for some time to come. Regrettably however, and in the time since that fateful day, it has become increasingly clear that the President of The United States, riding some perceived political mandate, will attempt to exploit the lost lives of Newtown in order to advance the ideological issue of gun control.
I do not say this lightly, and indeed I was willing to give the father of two young daughters the benefit of the doubt in the days immediately following the murders. Having said that, Vice President Joe Biden dropped the inevitable political bombshell today, as the newly formed “gun control task force” was meeting in Washington. Simply put, and to no one’s surprise who has been watching this Administration with any objectivity, Biden hinted Mr. Obama might in fact bypass Congress and invoke “executive privilege” to initiate gun control measures. I’m sorry folks, but this abuse of power is unnecessary and unwarranted based on the facts and common-sense. However it does give us great insight into the foregone conclusions drawn of this masquerade run by the VP. There will be no real consideration of the evidence, only a rigged outcome born of a baseless, ideological and un-Constitutional Left Wing agenda, ever-poised to strike with crisis afoot..
Make no mistake, the Newtown tragedy must serve as a catalyst for change, but not the change the President and his Left Wing buddies desire. Sandy Hook should remind us that in any free society there will be evil which must be addressed. Not with the stroke of a pen, or the politically motivated band-aid solution of a self-aggrandizing politician, but rather by way of education, community, prayer, and a fact-based common-sense approach which provides security while preserving liberty. That is the American way, and the best way to honor the memories of those little angels and their teachers.
Let me begin with Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Or maybe I should ask, where do I begin with Mayor Mike Bloomberg? This is clearly an individual whose financial and political status have positioned him atop a bully pulpit for which he is neither suited or qualified. His recent comments in the wake of the Aurora shooting are reckless and ill-timed at best. Moreover, the factual numbers concerning gun control have never and will never support his arguments.
One need only read the writings of Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Hamilton and a multitude of others to know the “right to keep and bear arms” is inherent and essential to the existence of a free people. Sadly, sound bites and uneducated opinions have found their way into the debate, and clouded the minds of otherwise sensible Americans. Responsible journalism has been replaced by activism, and Bill O’Reilly is now somehow an authority on “automatic” firearms. The problem is, ordinary citizens cannot purchase “automatic” firearms without a special federal license, and the Aurora shooter had no “automatic” weapons in his possession that fateful evening. It is this type of misinformation which permeates the “lame stream” media talking points today, and makes reasonable debate on the matter all the more challenging. In this case I would thank the good Lord for the NRA. That’s right Bill Moyer. The NRA is not the “enabler of death”, but you may very well be the enabler of ignorance and ideological rhetoric. Ah, the frustration of listening to this Left Wing operative try and pass himself off as any kind of journalist or commentator. What a joke.
Actually, if you were to fact check the NRA statistics, you would find that much of their numbers crunching comes from federal agencies to include the BATFE, FBI, and the CDC. When you throw in the figures from states and cities with “right to carry” laws on the books, and which show significantly lower crime rates than those without, one has to wonder how the anti-gun lobby can make any case at all.
Inevitably, it is tragedy like that in Aurora which allows disingenuous fools like Bloomberg, Lautenberg, Feinstein and Schumer, to come out of their respective holes and exploit the loved and lost to make a political, albeit nonsensical point. The truth is even more frightening though, and it is that these opportunists are not the least bit interested in the loss of the innocent, but rather their fear of an educated and armed citizenry, has shaped their ideology into something perversely unconstitutional and un-American.
Please support the 2nd Amendment. It guarantees the rest. Donate to the NRA at: https://membership.nrahq.org/forms/signup.asp?campaignid=bonusgiftwy&EK=Y2GRPPBD&pubID=148.30&hid=15109902
