The second amendment stands as the last line of defense against those who seek to create a one-world Marxist/socialist government under the U.N. Our founding fathers understood the tendency of government to grow like a cancer until it consumes the liberty, energy, and prosperity of the citizens. They knew that there would likely be a time that Americans would be forced to to defend themselves against the tyranny of an oppressive government and provided the tools to defend life, liberty and property within our U.S. Constitution and original Bill of Rights.
Tonight’s program will focus on the historical record and rationale for the second amendment, and why we must refuse to accept laws stripping our right of self defense. We will also set the record straight on the meaning of a well regulated militia, and why our founders feared a large national military complex in the hands of tyrannical national leaders. Let freedom ring!!!
