The Right of the People ... shall not be infringed
To President George Bush, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and
Republican Leader John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell:
We, the people of these United States, rightfully petition our
President, House of Representatives and Senate in affirmation
of the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution,
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a
free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall
not be infringed."
We affirm that said Amendment was established to define an
individual "right of the People to keep and bear arms," and that
there is no more important constitutional issue than that of

"The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been
considered, as the palladium of the liberties of the republic;
since it offers a strong moral check against usurpation and
arbitrary power of the rulers; and will generally, even if these
are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist
and triumph over them."
Indeed, the Second Amendment is "the palladium of the liberties
of the republic," and those who fail to support it as such, and
reject detractors like Obama, do so at great peril to themselves
and the liberty of future generations of Americans.
Accordingly, we, the undersigned, declare that gun ownership
is not only an individual right, but a duty and obligation of

Done! Ram Rod's right - spam to follow...................
At the risk of being labeled a pariah and a crazy liberal, can someone please explain to me why we should support the NRA, an organization that staunchly defends the 2nd Amendment regardless of how distasteful it may be in the view of public opinion yet we should ridicule the ACLU, an organization that staunchly defends numerous other Amendments regardless of how distasteful it may be in the view of public opinion?
