Gun battle brewing

A deadly ill wind of tyranny originating in Washington has potential to spread certain mayhem and death across our once great nation. Since the senseless slaying of 26 innocent victims in Connecticut by a mentally disturbed man, gun control has been at the forefront in every forum in America.

I have participated in and observed several polls concerning gun control, and if the polls are correct — and if President Obama's disciples try to have their way — there will be war!

So far the liberal politicians have given us every excuse except the plain truth, which is that they fear an armed citizenry. The citizens of this nation are mad, and why not? The nation is approaching $17 trillion in debt, with another $80 trillion in unfunded (stolen) liability for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

I fear that Obama and his ilk do not realize that millions of people, just like me, have been simmering on the sidelines, patiently waiting for his term to expire in great hope that he does not touch what is both necessary and sacred to millions of us —the right to keep and bear arms. If the folks in D.C. think the Second Amendment is just about hunting, they are making a terrible mistake.

The Second Amendment is what separates the citizens, who are actually in charge, from the deadheaded politicians who serve us. The Constitution and Bill of Rights are perfectly clear; we do not see these sacred documents blurred as tyrannical politicians do.

I am just one of a sea of patriots who will exercise our Second Amendment rights against any tyrannical force that the Obama administration sets forth to disarm us. To do less would dishonor ourselves as well as our forefathers.
