I grew up in the USA but now live in Australia. I am however, still an American citizen and therefore feel free to speak on the liberty to own and/or carry a gun. By the way I have a genuine birth certificate that proves I am a 100% American born citizen which is more than the one in the White House does!
Because of the Occupier’s Marxist’s upbringing it is not surprising to read what he is quoted as saying at http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/01/27/obama-gun-control-advocates-should-listen-more/. The Occupier said that “…it’s understandable that people are protective of their family traditions when it comes to hunting so gun-control advocates also need to do a little more listening than they do sometimes in the debate.”
Is that really what this debate is all about, hunting!? Here is the Second Amendment which states that “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.”
This Second Amendment has NOTHING to do with hunting! It has to do with defending oneself from a tyrannical enemy which may be hunting you and that enemy just may include the Federal Government.
I am writing this from my home in Australia so I do not know if the Occupier has been sworn into office yet or not. However, I have read that the Occupier’s hero supposedly is Abe Lincoln. Now personally I am not a big fan nor am I an enemy of Abe Lincoln but this Occupier can never match the stature of Lincoln. For one thing it has been written that Lincoln was a humble man whereas the Occupier is anything but! Secondly Lincoln could speak without a teleprompter! Thirdly Lincoln knew how many states there were in the USA during his time BUT the Occupier didn’t in his first campaign. Fourthly, Lincoln may not have been a professing Christian but he definitely had Christian sentiments. The Occupier has shown his sentiments are with Islamists!!!! Lincoln knew his Bible and quoted the Bible often. The Occupier doesn’t know the Bible except for those passages that fit his purpose (kind of like Rick Warren).
Now IF Lincoln is the Occupier’s hero it is only because Abe Lincoln was a federalist. The Civil war was not really over slavery but it was truly over states rights. However, as a federalist Lincoln did not see it that way. The Occupier too sees the Federal Government as the One with the rights. The present gun issue is a modern day example. It will be interesting to see just how far the Occupier gets with this issue! May this issue be settled in the individual states by the people of those states!
