    Stand for the Second Amendment

    We've heard the argument over and over again after every mass shooting. "Guns are the problem," "There's no reason why anyone should have an AR15." You've even heard Christian leaders say, "Christians shouldn't carry guns, they should trust God." Though it is true that we should trust God it is untrue and even dangerous for one individual to tell another if they should or should not carry a firearm for self-defense.

    The truth of the matter is that guns have been around ever since this country began and we didnít see this stuff in the past. So obviously itís not the guns that are the issue. Itís something else. Itís us, what we now believe. We no longer believe life has value. Whether it is the life of the unborn or those we just politically disagree with. Until we regain respect for life we will see this happen despite the tool. We have to find our values again. Moral people surrounded by guns will do no harm. I am pro-2nd Amendment and I will not apologize for that.

    Ban the sale of assault rifles and bump stocks. Background check for every gun sale. Limit magazine sizes.

    And spend more $, lots more $ for mental health. That would be a way to show that life has value. Now people with mental health issues are stigmatized and pushed aside to live on the street.

    And keep your guns and ammo locked up.

    Then you can keep your 2nd Amendment.

    Wow you donít value life do you? Who are you to tell another person what they can and cannot use to defend their own life?

    You need an assault weapon to defend your life? Where do you live? Gaza? Iraq?
    Do you have a problem with background checks for EVERY gun sale? If so, why?
    Does the 2nd Amendment give you carte blanche to own any weapon you wish? With absolutely no regulation?
    Got an issue with more $ spent for mental health? Perhaps from a special tax on weapons? Although that would offend the poor souls at the NRA.
    Any issue with a requirement to keep your guns and ammo locked up when no adult is in the home? An adult with a permit to own a weapon?

    Seems to me he values it more than you. Do you feel aggrieved that you're not allowed to use rocket launchers for home defence? Why would you need an assault rifle to defend yourself?

    Living in a dream world where all guns will be banned.
    It won't happen, because only the good guys will give up their guns.

    Better we protect our kids like we do the money in our banks.

    I know.....that would be silly.

    A shot gun is for birds.
