Weapons Ban Looming, Washington In Session
ALERT: Barack Obama is determined to make gun-control a reality in 'Year One' of his coming term; Sen. Feinstein promised weapons ban on 'Day One' of 113th Congress! Act Now and Fax Congress: tell them to Refuse any weapons ban in January!

Conservative American,

Yesterday marked the first day of the 113th Congress. It also marks the beginning of Big Government's renewed assault on the Bill of Rights, specifically the Second Amendment and the right to "keep and bear arms."

Now that the the new Congress has convened, we know that Sen. Diane Feinstein is dangerously close to following through with her December promise to push her unconstitutional assault weapons ban.

Further, if Sen. Harry Reid gets his filibuster "rule change" it will mean that the Senate can pass their gun-control bills with only 51 votes, ignoring their pro-Second Amendment members!

This means that the all of the gun-grabber's desirable bans on semiautomatics, certain magazines, gun shows (all, according to Obama, being "loopholes"), and private gun sales (that is, sales from person-to-person without a dealer) would be subject to a vote of 51, rather than the 2/3 majority! The Feinstein Ban is only the beginning!

The Second Amendment must never be Limited: 

One of the arguments for the reinstatement of an Assault Weapons Ban is that it only restricts "some" weapons, namely those of a military-grade, while leaving other weapons unaffected. Michael Bloomberg and Diane Feinstein claims they only are attack so-called "weapons of war."

Here is the problem... the Second Amendment protects such weapons, while anti-gunners want to see them "off the streets of our cities."

You see, anti-gun politicians don't understand (or care about) the purpose of the Second Amendment. Thomas Mullen of the Washington Times comments:

"Having weapons of war on the streets is the whole point of the 2nd Amendment. The amendment wasn't drafted to ensure that Americans could hunt. It wasn't drafted so that Americans could protect themselves, although the natural right to defend one's life was never as compromised as it is in the modern gun control era.

They weren't out to confiscate hunting rifles, 'fer squirrels and sech,' either. They intended to confiscate a store of arms that would outfit the average colonist with weapons roughly equivalent to the average British infantryman.

That's why the 2nd Amendment was written, to ensure that the government's army would never have superior firepower to the people."

Yes, the Second Amendment protects all weapons, even so-called "weapons of war." Again, this is not controversial - it is simply what the founders gave us to preserve our free society.

"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." – Second Amendment.

What has happened to America? Political Correctness - which is quite incorrect - is costing us our freedoms. Bad utopian ideas that suggest society can abolish violence, aggression, and death by simply removing guns is an argument even child wouldn't believe - yet so many go along with this liberal nonsense and are willing to toss their and their neighbors' rights away!
