In wake of known threats, leaving citizens defenseless is wrong
We need to repeal obstacles, not pass new laws or empower government to "allow" us.

Recent events in Tucson have made it painfully obvious that murderous trouble
can erupt at any time and in any place. It is a clear and present danger.
We can no longer afford to pretend such dangers do not exist.
It is irresponsible to continue to imagine that police can be everywhere,
or that they can respond with sufficient speed to prevent a homicidal
Police are second responders. The first responders are always we,
the people, on the scene as events unfold.
The time has come to insist upon robust restoration of our right to defend
ourselves, to keep and bear arms when and where arms might be needed in
any public places, to forestall these serious known threats to our safety.
It is time to recognize make-believe gun-free zones for what they are --
negligent, reckless, known-to-be dangerous illusions, perpetrated
anti-rights bigots, hoplophobes and people who are hopelessly ignorant
about what they're doing, in the false name of "safety."
It is time to honor and respect the plain meaning of the Second Amendment.
The forces aligned against our civil right to arms are disgracefully using
an assassin's heinous crime to foment hatred and attack us. They are
plotting in secret to diminish and impair our cherished rights. Now is not
the time to simply rebut their power-hungry vitriol and ignorance.
Now is the time to advance a vigorous pro-rights agenda, because it is the
righteous response to the problems their anti-freedom efforts have helped
We must at last free people from the governmental chains that bind them,
and replace those chains with the fullest expression of rights that are so
fundamental to the American way of life.
An uninfringed right to keep and bear arms is the moral high ground.
Efforts to ban or infringe on these precious rights in any way is both
immoral and dangerously reckless, putting innocent people in harm's way.
People promoting such infringements should be punsihed to the fullest
extent of the law, for denial of civil rights.
Remove the obstacles to the constitutionally guaranteed right to defend
innocent life against whatever evil may confront us.
It is time to uninfringe national carry rights for all law-abiding adult Americans.
National carry must be accompanied by a reinvigorated private effort to
educate our children and ourselves in the social utility of firearms, and
their safe and legal uses.
The abhorrent exploitation of isolated tragedies, used to demean and denigrate
our civil rights, must be recognized for its bigotry and must come to an end.
The purposes and constitutional roots of this most fundamental right must
be reintroduced into the nation's classrooms.
Incentives must be brought forth to rebirth a culture of marksmanship, and
to once again become the nation of marksmen the Founders envisioned. It is
not enough to simply argue back against those who would deny or restrict
our rights with their many and nefarious schemes.
It is time to restore national carry rights for all law-abiding adult Americans.
Repeal the bans on freedom to carry.
