Gun issue dwarfs abortion concerns


Save Our Children?

California Sen. Diannne Feinstein is proposing an AR-style rifle ban while ignoring school security to save our children. Yet in this 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade, she doesn’t mention the 54 million abortions conducted in this country, nor does she show remorse for this disrespect for human life. Speeches at every Democratic National Convention reference abortion or a pro-choice platform to huge cheers for the rabid convention hall audience. Mother Teresa identified the greatest destroyer of peace today as abortion because it is a war againist children, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. If a mother can kill her own child and then tell young people not to kill one another, it is the ultimate hypocrisy in the eyes of the young.

Feinstein and her cohorts are using the Sandy Hook tragedy as a first step to trash our Second Amendment right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms as a defense against tyranny. They believe that abolishing our Second Amendment is necessary for President Obama, as he described in his Boulder, Col., speech on July 2, 2008, to create a “civilian national security force that would be just as powerful, just as strong, and just as well funded as the U. S. military.” The national security objectives described by Obama define a brutal totalitarian regime modeled after the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin.

The claim by politicians like Feinstein that trashing the Second Amendment is necessary to save lives is deplorable. Without the Second Amendment to serve as a shield to protect our Constitution, the next to fall will be the First Amendment, followed by the Fourth and then the rest. Lawmakers take an oath of office to uphold our Constitution, not destroy it.
