In training and talking to people on both sides of the political fence…both democrat and republican…I have to say the reality on the ground is that we are not as polarized on the issue of firearms ownership as our so-called representatives want us to believe. The politicians of today do not represent the ideas of the majority of the people they supposedly “represent”, and are driving an agenda of division, and disarmament, fed to them by party leadership, but not in alignment with the will of the people! I see as many democratic firearms owners disgusted with the political direction on guns as there are republicans….and if we are honest, there are a lot of republicans who are not happy with their elected officials lack of support in this area as well.
Party lines have become blurred by extremism and political agendas. Financial incentives are taking control and there are attempts to abolish all that has made this a “Country of the People”….turning us into a country representative of power, and control “over the people”.
Our forefathers warned against this.
“It will not be denied that power is of an encroaching nature and that it ought to be effectually restrained from passing the limits assigned to it.” – James Madison, Federalist 48, 1788
What we have today is a government made of officials who serve their own interests, and not those of the people. They are enacting laws that are unnecessary, illogical, and in many cases outright unconstitutional, stomping on the very idea of a free existence. Organizations such as “Every-town USA” and “Moms Demand Action” have Bloomberg funding behind them dropping hundreds of thousands into campaign accounts on both sides of the fence, resulting in political action against gun rights that would not have occurred otherwise. Political actions that deprive law-abiding citizens of their rights to self-defense, while lessening criminal penalties and sentences!….this is not what people are asking for…it’s what politicians seeking control are demanding….and buying ….from your elected officials.
It was not the intent of this country’s founding fathers to enable politicians to make decisions “for the people”, but instead to carry forward decisions that project the will “of the people”, and to protect the rights of all to pursue their life as they choose.
A quote by Thomas Jefferson sums up the intent of our founders very simply:
“I have no fear that the result of our experiment will be that men may be trusted to themselves without a master.” – Thomas Jefferson, Letter to David Hartley, 1787
Our “Masters” are multiplying and overstepping, and if not stopped, will buy, sell, and take everything from us that we have fought for from the beginning…while stripping us of our abilities to not only resist, but to protect our lives and ensure the security of our families.
