Day of Resistance: 'Tea Party' Joins Defense of 2nd Amendment
In a “day of resistance,” groups mobilized across the nation yesterday in a show of support for the Constitutionally recognized right to bear arms. Their message: back off of gun control.
Some of the groups that participated are affiliated with the “tea party,” a loose organization of citizens who generally support Constitutionally limited government and fiscal responsibility. But whether or not the majority of attendees would characterize themselves as part of the “tea party,” many Americans showed today they are aware of the threat to the Bill of Rights.
While many might view the reaction of these protesters as excessive, assault weapons ban leader Senator Dianne Feinstein has revealed her desire to completely disarm all citizens of firearms. President Obama as Illinois state senator in 1998 supported action to “ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.”
The federal government has eroded individual rights over time for seemingly reasonable reasons by moving very slowly. Now that politicians are taking out their assault pens and moving to scratch out the Second Amendment, American citizens are moving to protect their rights.
