Confiscation of privately owned firearms is already being considered in America

Even if you have no interest in owning guns, be they handguns, shotguns, assault rifles, or any other type of firearms, your right to do so is being ripped out from under you at an accelerated pace. If you have no interest in guns, you may not see the implications of this erosion of your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Beware! You should know this matter affects you directly. Gun control is a catalyst, not the root issue. People control is the real issue.

Once the people are disarmed and prohibited from arming themselves, there are no more checks and balances. It is absolute tyranny. The things you do hold dear, like your First Amendment rights, among other things, are no longer safe.

Think about why such fundamental liberties as freedom of speech and freedom of religion are included in the First Amendment. They are among the first things our nation's visionary founders thought about. These liberties are the first things identified as targets of internal tyranny. The first things needing explicit constitutional protection.

Ponder the forethought exercised by our founding fathers. Aside for the initial struggle for independence, our founders were not so worried about these fundamental freedoms being threatened from afar. They were more profoundly concerned about the internal erosion of liberty.

Our founding fathers did not flee England out of fear of attack from neighboring European countries. They were escaping domestic oppression. Their own government was their enemy. As is ours today. History repeats.

There is a reason why the right to keep and bear arms was enshrined in the Second Amendment. It was the very next thing our founders thought of. They understood the need for the common citizenry to have the freedom and the means to overthrow a sitting government by force, if necessary.

They had experienced the ordeal of securing liberty and independence by the shedding of blood. They learned from history. They learned from God. During the past few decades, as a nation, we have done neither.

The fact that we still have any semblance of sovereignty and liberty remaining in America is directly attributable to the veterans who put it all on the line, and the faithful, God-fearing citizens who pray for them. So, thank a vet, and thank a Christian.
