The Second Amendment - a Thoughtful View

The Huffington Post, frequently a hotbed of in your face leftism, has taken a different direction with the linked article below regarding the second amendment.  Note that I didn't accuse the HP of in your face 'liberalism'.  Liberalism is not in itself a bad thing and in decades past being a 'liberal' meant that a person was a broad thinker open to progress and the embracing of new ideas.  leftism however is a cover for compulsory socialism and on its far fringes collectivism and anarchy.

Anyway, the HP posted a thoughtful article about the second amendment and its importance for moderating the behavior of our government on all levels.  As is written in the article  "...And then there are those who view the government as neither good nor evil, but merely a powerful entity that, as Thomas Jefferson recognized, must be bound "down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution." To this group, the right to bear arms is no different from any other right enshrined in the Constitution, to be safeguarded, exercised prudently and maintained."

The right to keep and bear arms may seem to some to be something that belongs in the past but let me say that a right forfeited will never, never be secured again.  This right is simply too valuable and too significant a symbol of the special place that the individual holds in this nation to relinquish.

Read the article and then think of those who fight mightily to remove the right to keep and bear arms from the citizenry.  If this right is forfeit then what will be next?

An armed man is never a slave.
