They want to take away our second ammendment

The reason the founders created the second amendment was to protect our natural right to defend our own freedom.  They were personally witnessed and took part in a revolution that would not have been possible without guns.  The founders created the second amendment because of the potential for tyranny of any government.  They wanted to make sure U.S. citizens had the weapons they needed to protect themselves from an unlawful government.

Yet the person(s) who created the following bill introduced to Congress don't care what the founders think, nor what the second amendment, nor the Constitution.  Provisions of the bill include

  • Having one standard of the issuance of all gun licenses, giving local police chiefs the ability to evaluate all aspects of an application for a gun license.
  • Requires proof of liability insurance for possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun.
  • Requires that all large capacity weapons and grandfathered assault weapons must be stored at gun clubs or target ranges.
  • Requires live shooting as part of the curriculum for a basic firearms safety course; this is not a current requirement.
  • Requires all applicants for gun licenses and FID cards to sign a waiver of mental health records for review to be destroyed after decision.
  • Imposes 25% sales tax on ammunition, firearms, shotguns, and rifles; dedicates funds towards firearms licensing, police training, mental health services, and victim’s services.
  • Brings Massachusetts into compliance with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
  • Limits gun buyers to one firearm purchase per month.
So what happens in 30 years after these provisions come into play and our government becomes corrupt (or corrupter).  We will have no weapons to stop our leaders from taking away the rest of our inalienable rights.
