1st & 2nd Amendments Joined At the Hip

When it comes to unalienable rights that were endowed upon mankind by our Creator, these rights are a whole package, and as such, are inseparable. To storm down the doors of our state capitol buildings, city halls, county courthouses, and any other public place touting the right to free speech at the expense of snuffing out the right to keep and bear arms is ILLEGAL.

The only reason any of us have the right to free speech is first because it was given to us by God, and secured for us by the first amendment. And the SAME logic applies to the second amendment. It is not tolerance for gun violence prevention groups to stand on their bullhorn and rant about the need to lock down the freedoms of American citizens to keep and bear arms, all the while attempting to deny the same people their own right to keep and bear arms!

What if the pro-gun movement were to begin spreading a message that today’s “modern” interpretation of the first amendment wasn’t REALLY meant to guarantee the right to free speech? There would be an outrage. Yet, these same anti-gun movements are using the same line of thinking to legislate out of existence the God-given right to keep and bear arms.

This will go to the Supreme Court again, and again, and again. And the people will not stop speaking up for what they believe in. It does not matter how much you try to legislate it out of existence. The right shall not be stripped from the people.
