Mildred Stoeser (Letters, Jan. 30) asked, “Who are you going out and bearing arms against?”
The Second Amendment has always been about the people’s ability to stand up against our own government if it becomes tyrannical and, if need be, to be able to kill to protect our God-given rights. Mildred states that we have a strong enough military so we don’t need weapons ourselves. What happens if the military is ordered against its own citizens? Without weapons we are just slaves to those in power.
In the last 50 years or so we have a government which seeks to take away these God-given rights. They will progress slowly by limiting our ammunition and then move forward with gun confiscations. If you look closely at the left’s true agenda you will see that they have slowly been eroding our freedoms, all with the hoax of protecting us. They use courts to annul the people’s will and make laws that they could never get passed themselves without losing voters. When a few “judges” can, with a stroke of a pen, erase what the people have voted for, then our Second Amendment becomes even more important. Militias (armed citizens) are needed now more than ever.
