It is time that we stop paying lip service to the sacrifices of those who have made America great and begin to honor those sacrifices by once again getting out of the way of those unalienable rights of “Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.” To do so is the only path forward. Anything less will crush the very people we seek to protect.
In a country that holds as a founding principle the “Inalienable Rights of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness,” we must seriously consider why these rights would be denied to the most helpless among us! Although this debate has long been framed as either political or religious, we need to see it for what it really is and ask the question, “What is behind the obsession that so many have with taking the life of, now at least, even those who have been born?”
While the individual histories behind the fight for Civil Rights and the fight to preserve the Second Amendment are not the same, they are each a necessary part of American history. The government of the United States should never remove the rights of its citizens in ways that violate our Constitution. Dr. King and the thousands he led worked to make that truth become a reality and it is the millions of freedom-loving, law abiding, gun-owning citizens of this country that will keep it so.
The desire to be free, to pursue the liberties naturally derived by all men and women, cannot be taken away. When both the government and those who give them the privilege of governing finally understand this basic truth there will be harmony because there will be liberty!
