The 2nd Amendment provides the American people a last resort to protect ourselves and the Constitution from tyranny.
The progressive/liberal left asserts that times have changed, that the Constitution is out of date, technologies rendering it useless.
They're wrong because human nature hasn't changed, politics haven't changed, and people the world over still struggle to attain the freedoms our Founding Fathers achieved and preserved for us.
Since our founding 237 years ago, millions of Americans before us have sacrificed at places like Valley Forge and Iwo Jima with many making the ultimate sacrifice to protect, preserve and defend our Constitution and the freedoms it protects for us.
Millions of Americans understand that the real cause of the senseless tragedies including Columbine, Aurora and Newtown is rooted in mental illness and will continue until mental illness is addressed.
Thousands of local and national gun laws including the ones being proposed were already enacted and didn't stop those killings and will fail to stop others in the future — until mental illness is addressed.
Stop the insanity, put armed guards in the schools and address the real issues of mental illness.
