I’m a big believer in the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights. It’s why I’m a Second Amendment advocate. The way I see it, our Founding Fathers put together a document that did a pretty good job of limiting the government and securing our rights.
Too bad it’s ignored, such as the push for gun control.
But with frightening regularity, there comes someone who seems to act like they held a seance with the Founding Fathers and knows that their past words in support of the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms would go out the window.

As said, Justice Scalia wasn’t a Founding Father. If Second Amendment isn’t crystal clear the Ninth Amendment puts the icing on the cake.
Well, back in the day, and not too many days back, most “everyone” owned a gun or two. We didn’t have shootings anywhere near to the frequency percentage wise in this country. Guns haven’t changed from the onset. They can and will kill if pointed toward a person and discharged. Accidental shootings also happened. But today, what has changed is the mindset of “some” still a very small minority of the population that for some reason want to inflict pain on others in spite of wether or not they have hurt anyone. And then some for political.racial, or beliefs. But, somehow we need to get the mindset of our country back on track rather than having all weapons removed. My weapon will never hurt an innocent person! But, it will protect my family and I. Maybe better background checks before purchase will help but overall, it’s the mindset of our people today that is the problem. Maybe less emphasis on color and sexual preference. Seems that many are just confused and mad at the world. Yes, sure our founding fathers would be shocked into next Tuesday to see where we have gone today. Wish there was one simple answer but there sure isn’t. Just know I have no intent of surrendering my weapon anytime soon. The World is Watching.
