It took awhile but (my) Minnesota U.S. Senator Al Franken, D came out firmly for Senator Feinstein’s, D CA “Assault Weapons Ban.” “I believe in the 2nd Amendment. I believe people have the fundamental right to own a gun for hunting, for collection, for protection, for sport. I don’t believe that the assault weapons are needed, we’ve seen so many of these tragedies.” … Your deer rifle is a semi-automatic rifle. [AR-15s] are not needed for hunting.” Franken’s statement said.
Wrong, Senator Franken. The Second Amendment to the Constitution for the United States of America is not there for collectors or “sportsmen” or—even hunting. It isn’t that Senator Franken is ill informed. I have had a lengthy discussion with his office on the firearms banning issue. Senator Franken covers himself politically with many with the word, “protection” which can be applied to thieves and rapists. Senator Franken, like all liberals, will not—cannot—admit that the true purpose of the Second Amendment is the peoples defense against a tyrannical government.
But American patriots know and, if it ever becomes necessary, we will be ready. But, perhaps fearing the dominant media, we haven’t expressed the use against tyranny boldly and clearly. Until recently. A couple weeks ago, an immigrant from China and quite recent citizen (2007) spoke boldly and clearly for the Second Amendment as the key and critical difference maker when standing against tyranny. Unfortunately this American patriot and survivor of Tiananmen Square is unidentified. If you learn his name, please email me. Here is part of what he said:
When the government has all the guns, they have all the rights
To me, a rifle is not for sporting or hunting. It is an instrument of freedom. It guarantees that I cannot be coerced, that I have free will, that I am a free man.
Now suppose, the 20 milllion Beijing citizens had a couple million rifles on hand in 1989? How many rounds should they have been allowed to load into their magazines? Ten rounds? Seven rounds? How about three rounds?
Do not give up the fight, my friends. It may be a small step that you give up your rifle, or a 30 round magazine. But it will be a giant leap toward the destruction of this republic.
