Your family...your home...your life...Is The Second Amendment Worth Fighting For To Remain In Tact Even Today?

With talks of weapons bans, and my recent experience, I thought I'd ask this question.

About a month ago, EARLY one Friday morning, two men broke into my home. One completely got into my home while the other was "manning the car" they had backed into my carport.

They actually first rang the doorbell. I was asleep and did not hear it. My son did. I guess they were testing to see if anyone was there. My son was slow to get up but when he did not hear me get up, he went ahead and opened his door. He could see down the hallway. And he saw the man in our home. He immediately ducked into my room, said, "Mom, someone's in the house," and he reached right inside my bedside table and grabbed my 9mm. He knew how to use it.

He was so quick that he had the gun, had taken off the safety, pulled the slide back and hit the hallway just as my feet hit the floor. But I was right in behind him at that point as he hit the hallway. They heard him coming and took off like bats out of hell. They tore up my front yard getting the hell out of there as quickly as they could.

I am thankful my son did not have to use my gun. But he was ready. And he would have done it as I would have but at that point he had control of the situation. I am thankful also for the second amendment which gives me the right to protect my home and my family and vice versa. God only knows how traumatic it would have been for my almost 16 year old son to have to shoot someone. Or me or anyone else. But criminals don't seem to care about the position they put me, my son, or anyone else in when they commit crimes. These idiots had the nerve while my son and I were talking to the cop to try this again only a little while later. Both times they got away. But without physically hurting any of us. THANKFULLY.

The second amendment is there for us. To protect ourselves against a tyrannical government, but also to protect ourselves, our homes, our families against those like this. Criminals would love to see the second amendment squashed I'm sure. Not me. I believe in it. My voice for owning small weapons was renewed and reinforced after what my son and I experienced.

How important is it to you? Are you ready or continue to have the fight in you to fight for it?

This is an amazing song by an amazing band. It is but only ONE of their great tunes. And it goes perfectly with my post. :)



See http://www.madisonrising.com to find out more about this up and coming band (consisting of military veterans) and support them. Their music is AWESOME and they can use the support!

    I keep telling everybody thattwo best you'll ever have are SMITH & WESSON. If you'll notice their sales are going over the top this year. Now, my advise to everybody, do not register your weapons to the government. Remember what happened in New Orleans after Katrina.

    Even though Obama isn't going to ban guns, what if we start bashing intruders heads in killing them??? then what? What if we have an abundance of that kind of behavior?

    Deadly force isn't going to protect you from tyranny if it just stays in the gun locker. The Second Amendment presumes that the American People will move quickly to squelch tyranny before it gets so big that it cannot be stopped. Even Thomas Jefferson pointed out how important it was to have revolutions at least every 20 years.

    The Elite Classes must be terrorized from time to time, and a few made examples of, to compel them to behave. Yes, there are some economic activities that require concentrations of wealth. All too often, however, such wealth becomes mischief if the holders are not reminded that their heads could roll if they let greed tempt them into malfeasance with the People's money.

    Though I never wanted to own a gun, I've ALWAYS felt the need keep that right. It MUST be defended. People forget that the "militia" that it speaks of, is us, everyday citizens. We are STILL the militia that they speak of.

    Indeed, that's why in the last four years I took a CCW class and applied for and received it. Purchased a 40cal, and 12ga. for home defense, and a 380 to carry and enough ammo for each. I still need to apply for a FL out-of-state CCW. That way I'll be covered throughout most of the ConUS when I do my motorcycle trips.

    Sounds like a plan , buddy ! - The Florida CCW Card is recognized in a LOT of states . There are bills being stopped in the Senate ( Harry Reid ) that would make one states licence good in ANY other State . It is going to take " Taking OutThe Trash " from the Senate . Be sure to get on the NRA - ILA Website list to get e-mails about ALL gun laws coming down the pike . The MSM prefer to keep them quiet !

    That's the reason I want to get it too. Ohio covers quite a few, and there's some overlap w/FL, but FL covers almost all the other states.

    I have mixed emotions about "Government mandated" reciprocity,. While it would make it easier/cheaper on the average CCW holder that likes to travel, I don't like the idea of them stepping on "States Rights" to not have reciprocity with another too.

    I get about 5 e-mails a day from several different people from the NRA-ILA(usually saying the same thing too). Rest assured, I'm on it!

    That kind of bothers me too . The " Slippery Slope " aspect of it is an issue . I think I would have to see ALL SIDES of the finished bill before saying one way or the other .
    Good luck on your purchases , they sound like a nice , well rounded tool kit . ( a tool for everything ) . I'm real fond of the .40 myself .

    I was just talking from an economical standpoint . People out there ( dealers ) tend to GOUGE the prices in these times of uncertainty . Just like other things , GAS being the most subject to this , people use any excuse to squeeze more money from you & me .
    The PRICE of ammo and guns " Do Not Go Up " for the dealers at the top end ( just like gasoline ) . " They " have a stock of merchandise that was purchsed Months Ago . They now see a chance to double their money .................. and they do it .

    I understand that, and I watch the prices VERY closely, especially dealer prices! I found that Wal-Mart actually has the cheapest price, and usually by a couple of dollars a box(same brand) compared to the few dealers around here! Right now, I'm only paying about a dollar more now, than when I started buying two and a half years ago. I expect prices to soar come next month, through the election. So, while the gettin's (reasonably) good, till the end of the month....

    I never went OUT of production . Most of the " elite " troops prefer a Man Stopper ( which the M-9 is not ) . The 1911 which most think is the " perfect " military hand gun , has seen a HUGE revival in the civillian market ever since the Army replaced it . Everybody Is Building 1911's These Days !

    To protect our selves with guns teaches criminals to be criminals. Obviously Jesus is not a criminal. A criminal has no thought about saving his soul, and will be a criminal in Gods eyes. Be a criminal in Gods eyes, and God will not see Jesus seeing chaff being burnt by his glory to be no more. Religious lies about hell cause people to not see this. Hence having criminals even as we see them.

    A Basic, Fundamental, Constitutional right. It will not be given up period! or as I have heard it said before "From my cold dead hands" . Your story alone is enough proof that guns are needed for basic home protection even before we one day have to deal with a tyranical goverment.

    Glad ya'll are safe and kudos to you for teaching your son. I have been around guns most of my life, got my first rifle at 9 was taught how to use safely and to hunt!! After being beaten and raped at 16 was given my first hand gun a .45 auto, my father taught me how to shoot, clean and protect myself, this was my 4th firearm. I have always owed a .45 for protection since, have had to pull it twice and use once. Shot the top of the left ear of a man who beat the crap out of a friend, followed her to my house and came after both of us. Four punks ran me off the road late one night. I had a concealed weapons permit by then, so when they started towards my car I pulled out my .45 told them the next one to take another step would meet his maker with the rest to follow. They jumped back in their car and left in a hurry!! We should always be able to protect ourselves and others in or on our property.
