Perspectives: Utah Sheriffs Association is on the right side of history
An excerpt from the article:
I know that this type of thinking goes against the popular grain, but it's part of our history. This has been the fight since day one.Itís essential that we understand the proper origin of political power. On this subject, many Americans have been systematically misinformed by government schooling and media disinformation. Weíve been taught for generations that the federal government is the supreme power in our land, but thatís not what the Founders intended.
While this article doesn't specifically address the second amendment, it is written as a result of the letter put out by the Utah Sheriff's Association, which was written in defense of the second amendment.
I find it ironic how most people find the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights, to be sacred and immutable, except the 2A. For some reason to take responsibility for one's own defense is looked upon as uncivilized and barbaric. And the the source of offense against life, liberty and happiness, may well be the very gov't we elected to preserve the same.
Trust in God and keep your powder dry
"A heavily armed citizenry is not about overthrowing the government; it is about preventing the government from overthrowing liberty. A people stripped of their right of self defense is defenseless against their own government." -source
