The constitutional right of Americans to own guns is under attack like never before. Yet the Framers found this right important enough to list second in the Bill of Rights: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.The Founding Fathers believed self-defense was a Biblical right to ensure citizens could defend themselves against any kind of illegal force — from a neighbor, an outsider or their own government.The anti-Second Amendment crowd believes they can regulate gun ownership based on the words “well regulated,” but that intentionally ignores the Founders’ meaning. It actually means well trained and prepared. However, regulation is exactly how they’ll infringe on your Second Amendment rights. With 300 million guns currently owned by American citizens, it’s not likely they’ll be rounded up by some government agency. Instead, progressive liberals will do what they do best: apply massive regulations to drastically reduce your ability to purchase or own a firearm.
