For most of my life, I have fought for the people's right to keep and bear arms, as our Constitution plainly calls for in the people's Bill of Rights. Actually, my concerns have not been limited to the Second Amendment alone but also to a great portion of that guarantee of rights given to us by our founding fathers. For the greatest portion of the last several decades, these rights have been direfully threatened not only by liberal politicians but also by the judges they appoint who litigate laws, therefore bypassing the constitutional call for laws to be legislated by lawmakers elected by the people.
On March 2 of this year, presidential candidate John Kerry, along with his liberal friends, Charles Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Ted Kennedy and other ultra-liberal senators, voted to ban the semi-automatic shotguns used by hunters, also to ban semi-automatic rifles like the little .22 so many use to hunt small game or just plink at targets. They also voted to ban the ammunition hunters use to hunt deer and other large game. They also voted to blame the gun industry for the acts of criminals. This, through lawsuits against the gun industry, would further line the already packed pockets of trial lawyers like John Edwards. It would also threaten to bankrupt the industry that produces the very arms needed by our fighting soldiers.
