Tutorial on Constitution

By From page A7 | January 25, 2013

EDITOR:

Sylvia Medley is correct, she does not need a tutorial on what is or is not an “assault” weapon. What she, and many others, truly need, is a tutorial on our Constitution.

The Second Amendment is not about hunting, or hobbies, or anything of that nature. It specifically states, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” The specific purpose of the amendment is for the people to be able to “protect themselves from a tyrannical government.” To do so means the people need comparable weapons to what would be used against them.

Make no mistake, our government is becoming ever more tyrannical. Every modern tyrant followed the same course, disarm the people. It couldn’t be any clearer unless you simply refuse to see the obvious.
