New Jersey –-(Ammoland.com)- Indeed there are gun crimes committed every day in cities like Trenton, Camden Newark, etc.
What are the politicians Like Bonnie Watson Coleman, Sheila Oliver and Steve Sweeney DOING about the gang violence and drug dealing responsible for these crimes – NOTHING!
What are they doing about the underlying causes of these crimes such as poverty, loss of jobs and poor quality education in our inner cities – NOTHING!
What they *ARE* doing is trying to deflect attention away from their own incompetence and onto the law abiding gun owner who not ONLY is not the problem, but who has a CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED right to keep and bear arms.
I understand that Sheila Oliver believes that the Constitution of the United States of America is irrelevant. She has said so. She believes that it is outdated. And yet our founders knew quite well that politicians like her would come along and try to restrict the rights of future generations of Americans. That is precisely WHY they created the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. To PROTECT our fundamental, preexisting, INALIENABLE rights from people exactly like her.
Is freedom of the press outdated? How about freedom of speech, freedom of religious expression?
We have recently seen how the politicians routinely violate our right to privacy. No doubt modern day politicians interested more in CONTROL than FREEDOM would like to interfere with these basic rights. We must think long and hard about whether or not we really want to allow some random politician to strip us of *ANY*of the rights our founders recognized as ESSENTIAL to the ability of WE THE PEOPLE to protect ourselves from people like Bonnie Watson Coleman, Sheila Oliver and Steve Sweeney.
Take this as a warning, my fellow residents of New Jersey. These politicians are not interested in preserving your freedom. They have demonstrated over and over again that their ultimate goal is to control every aspect of our behavior until we are so dependent on the state and federal government that we have no choice but to obey their commands.
I don't know about you, but I do not want to wait around to see what happens to us after that goal is obtained.
Elections are coming up in November for all of these politicians who would rather see us in pens, than allow us to exercise the rights that our founders held dear. “Outdated“, no, I don't think so. I think the minds of these politicians are so distorted by power, greed and corruption, and that they are so mired down in their own incompetence, that they don't DARE to let WE THE PEOPLE see their true nature. Control is what they are after, and control is what they will get unless *WE* replace as many of them as we possibly can. This November might be the last time we stand a chance at defeating them before they are able to manipulate the system so much in their favor that it will take a backhoe to pull them out of Trenton.
NOW IS THE TIME to open your eyes and see what the future holds for a people willing to allow their rights to be taken one by one. Today it is your inalienable right to keep and bear arms, what will it be tomorrow?
