"2nd Amendment ~ A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security for a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
The above language of the second amendment, a single sentence, is the shortest most clearly stated of any amendment in our constitution. Yet, these simple 27 words have been repeatedly distorted or obliterated by both Federal, State and Supreme Courts in their interpretation of the most simply and clearly stated law that makes up our Bill of Rights.
What is not to understand? Any rational person with a modicum of common sense can understand that the framers of our Constitution, in their carefully chosen words in this Article of the Bill Of Rights, clearly intended that all people shall have the inalienable right to keep and bear arms and that right shall not be infringed (breached, violated or revoked). Period! It does not say anything about the type, size, look and caliber of gun or the number of rounds it fires in a second. It doesn't say that only the government controlled military can posses arms. It says every single American person has the inalienable right to defend their country, state, life, liberty, property and freedoms from oppressive governments or individuals who threaten the peoples principles and rights. Any prohibition by government to thwart or excessively restrict the ownership of firearms diminishes our individual right to adequately defend ourselves and to self preservation.
Our Federal government along with our State and Supreme Courts, without applying the least amount of common sense, have habitually eroded and restricted our right to own guns. How can 27 simply stated words be so greatly misinterpreted. Could it be that government fears the armed reprisal of its citizens should government abuse its authority, control and power over the American people? "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
The American Reform Party firmly believes in the peoples right to own, keep and bear arms and will fight to preserve our individual right to do so at all levels of government.
"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."~ Thomas Jefferson

Both Obama and his sidekick Joe Biden are totally delusional when suggesting more strict gun laws will better control ISIS and homeland terror killings. It is this thought process or should I say lack of thought, that possess the greatest threat to National Security and the lives of all Americans. They NEVER should have been elected and let's not elect their surrogate Hillary Clinton.
Here’s an interesting side bar.
After the Japanese decimated our fleet in Pearl Harbor Dec 7, 1941, They could have sent their troop ships and carriers directly to California To finish what they started. The prediction from our Chief of Staff was we would not be able to stop a Massive invasion until they reached the Mississippi River. Remember, we had a 2 million man army and war ships. All fighting the Germans. So, why did they not invade?
After the war, the remaining Japanese generals and admirals were asked that question. Their answer:
