Second Amendment Common Sense
Second Amendment Common Sense
The Florida school shooting that left 17 dead has sparked once again a nationwide debate over whether the 2nd Amendment should be revisited and guns should be banned. This is a call for common sense. There are several issues at play. Extreme leftists want to ban guns because they see this as a key strategic kingpin in expanding powerful government and controlling people. Every time there is a mass shooting in this country, these people stir the pot with a willing media to ban guns. It’s just like they did with homosexual marriage-keep pounding the drum until the people give in. But this is not a common sense approach to solving problems. It is a path toward tyranny.
Why do we need the Second Amendment? At some point, the American people need to weigh what is the greater risk-tyrannical government such as the likes we have in countries like Argentina, China, Cuba, just to name a few-or solving the problem of mass shootings within the framework of the Constitution. Certainly, we are a nation of innovators and smart people. This is a problem, a danger, we can solve. But we have to solve it together, using common sense not political sense. All the politicians left and right and middle need to sit on the sidelines. The news media, because it is so biased toward a communistic agenda, needs to sit on the sidelines. American citizens, with their diverse and innovative approaches toward living life, need to speak up.
For far too long we have allowed these elected con artists called politicians try to solve our problems for us. They are hirelings who flee to their strongest loyalty at any sign of trouble-their political parties. They are more loyal to their political party than they are to this country and to the people that voted them into office. Last week, Jot subscribers had many good ideas. Some don’t like arming teachers because many teachers are the very ones standing against guns. Some say we should highly train and arm some teachers. Others say we should build fences around our schools and have a single security check point going into the school (Israel does this and it works). As a result, Americans need The Second Amendment.
We have a responsibility to defend life. Christians are consistent on this issue. We have the 1st Amendment that protects our right to free speech and to worship as we see fit. We need to put our common sense solutions to the public forum. It is a witness of the wisdom of the Holy Spirit. I love how Paul writes in Ephesians 6:19, “And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel.” We know 2 Timothy 3:16, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” Let us so instruct boldly as the world has no answer for the evil within it.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
