Poll Background

"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. "

This is the 2nd Amendment to our constitution. Twenty-seven (27) words that both lawmakers and US Citizens seem to have a difficult time in understanding. Let me simply clarify it for you . 

ALL people have the ABSOLUTE RIGHT (As in the ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO LIFE, LIBERTY AND PROPERTY)  to bear arms (meaning ANY TYPE OF ARM we want, pistol to a rocket launcher) and the Government (as in no Federal, State and/or local government) shall NOT INFRINGE (meaning government CAN NOT STOP us) from this right in any shape or form unless they want to amend the constitution. 

The 2nd amendment was adapted from a British Law which armed the people to protect life and property and fight back against a tyrannical King and government. Our founders additionally contended and the Supreme Court upheld that it further implied that the right was extended to individuals to support life (hunting) and defend personal life, rights and liberty against criminals.

Now given the fact that our government is heading down a path of tyranny, it would be inconceivable for any militia or person to fight back against government with single shot weapons that both political parties want to stop us from owning.And the intend to eventually take ALL our guns away starting with Assault Weapons... Now how would any logical person vote...

This whole issue is absolutely mind boggling! The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution is but only 29 words in length and simply states the peoples inalienable right to bare arms shall not be infringed. It says nothing about Pistols only or except assault riffles and military style weapons and there is a distinct reason why.

The people and states have both a right and obligation to form an armed militia to defend and protect itself against an oppressive or tyrannical government. Obviously, this can not be achieved if we limit or prohibit the type of weapon one can acquire.
