In a quick lash yesterday, some members of Congress threatened to bring back up gun control legislation. With the current political climate and the public's mood about guns, I suspect that it's merely a 'thrashing of the leash'. Most Democrats in Congress argue that gun control saves lives- yet the opposite has been proven true. They argue that there is no choice between the 2nd amendment and 'saving lives', but they mean it in the wrong way. When it comes to 'saving lives' for these liberal individuals, it's OK to undermine Constitutional freedoms in order to do so.
This is why we oppose gun control.
'Saving lives' can be done without undermining the 2nd amendment. It can be done in the form of mental health improvements, school security and protocol reviews. When these suggestions were made, Congress refused to pass them. They are clearly not interested in solving the problem- but eroding rights enshrined in the Constitution.
The Constitution exists to LIMIT the powers of the federal government, as well as the state government's powers. When they attempt to usurp these limits- the power balance between the government and the people is upset. Tell your legislators today that you will not tolerate this usurpation.
