Second Amendment Protection Petition

The Second Amendment is under direct assault because of the proposed gun control measures before Congress.

We the people of the United States of America hereby petition Congress for redress of grievances.

To wit the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution which states ?"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? and,

Whereas: Barack Obama is exploiting the recent tragedy in Connecticut to further his anti-gun agenda; and

Whereas: All empirical evidence ? as well as plain old common sense ? shows that gun control does not prevent violence and only leaves law-abiding citizens defenseless against it; and

Whereas: The Second Amendment clearly states ?the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.?

Whereas: Pro-gun Americans like me strongly oppose new unconstitutional gun control scheme and will be paying close attention to our members of Congress.

Therefore: As your constituents, WE DEMAND you oppose any and all new gun control schemes, including but not limited to a new ?Assault Weapons? Ban or ?High-Capacity? Magazine Ban. And Cease and desist Immediately from any and all plans which would involve the confiscation of the peoples firearms .
