On the 2nd Amendment

On the 2nd Amendment

A note to the ACLU and all the gun-control groups out there that claim that the Second Amendment is outdated and past its utility and/or was only meant to allow us to buy hunting weapons.

What’s happening in New Orleans, vis-a-vis the gangs now roaming the streets raping and killing at will, is exactly why we have the Second Amendment. When government, in the form of law enforcement or the military, cannot defend you and your family from bodily harm, it is our duty to defend ourselves. What we are seeing now is that even in our modern, safe, 21st-century society there can still be times when barbarity and savagery need to be beaten back.

When the slavering mob is banging at your door to get at your wife, your children, and you, and there are no police available to come help you, what will you do? It’s a question I’m seriously thinking about.

  • A nice 12-gauge shotgun costs around $250-300 bucks.  Practice will cost you around $50.00, including practice ammo.

    Ammo sufficient for typical home defense will cost you about $10.00.

    You could go with a nice 9mm or .45 pistol (most beginners use revolvers, instead.)  Decent ones will cost you $300-500 bucks.  Lessons, practice, etc., will run another $200.00.

    Ammo sufficient to scare the bejabbers out of goblins:  around $10.00

  • What happened to the prisoners who I last saw pictured sitting on a highway after their prison flooded?  Are they now roaming the streets of New Orleans?

  •   My shotgun does not seem adequate right now.  I’ve asked dh for a pistol and lessons at a nearby shooting range for my birthday present.  He was delighted with the idea.  Meanwhile, I’ll read up on our state code regarding handguns.

  • The feminization of the US (and our Church) by the propaganda of the Left conveniently leaves out the consequences of anarchy and tyranny.

  • Don’t get a handgun for self-defense.  Unless you are skilled they are useless, and dangerous to those in the path of your missed shots.  Even trained police officers (my past life) miss in almost 50% of their first shots.  Handgun and rifle bullets can travel up to a mile, penetrate walls and still have energy sufficient to kill.

    A pump shotgun is the best idea.  It will not over-penetrate, is easier to aim, and most importantly, racking a round into the chamber will scare the &$%## out of most attackers, causing them to run and you not to have to shoot!
