As usual, after a mass shooting the liberals go on a feeding frenzy for more gun control. Since most elected officials know that voting for more gun control would be political suicide, they are going after online ammunition sales.
All of this gun control and ammunition control talk is pure nonsense.
What the government needs to provide is gun training, and less gun control laws.
When this great nation was founded, who found the battles that won the war? It was the civilian volunteers. At the time of the revolutionary war, civilian had access to the same weapons that the British carried.
The war of 1812, who went to New Orleans and fought the British? Once again it was the civilian volunteers that answered the call to protect this nation.
The founding fathers subscribed to the idea that every able bodied male over the age of 18 years was a member of the citizen militia. This citizen militia is what the second amendment is all about.
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
In order to ensure the security of the nation, the population must be armed.
The citizen militia, being every able bodies male over the age of 18 years old is the last line of defense to an invading force.
The government has failed to properly arm and train the citizen militia.
One argument against the citizen militia is now that we have the armed forces, the citizen militia is no longer needed. The armed forces are the first line of defense against an attacker. The armed citizen is the last line of defense.
The national guard is the militia. Negative, the national guard is the second line of defense against an aggressor.
Any nation that dares invade the U.S.A. would have to not only fight the military, but also millions of armed citizens. This is why the founding fathers ensured the people have the right to keep and bear arms. So we can keep our firearms in our home, then bear the firearms to where and when the need arises.
In the discussion on firearms there are two types of people
1 – the people who believe in individual freedoms and personal responsibility.
2 – the people who believe in limited individual freedoms and think the government should be responsible.
The founding fathers believed in personal responsibility. I think I can prove the founding fathers believed in individual freedoms.
When it came time to fight oppression, the volunteers grabbed their rifles and killed the British.
The volunteers did not sit around and wait for a government to form, then wait for the government to raise an army, then wait for the army to fight the British.
When it came time for action, the volunteers and the founding fathers took action. They took the action needed to achieve a desired goal.
On one hand we have the people that do what needs to be done. On the other hand we have people who wait around for the government to do something.
