Gun owners: wake up to your responsibility

Gun owners: wake up to your responsibility

Recent letters to the Union have expressed the liberals’ new-found outrage at the apparent degradation of our constitutional liberties required to root out domestic Islamic terrorists. Where were these champions of freedom when the Clinton administration attempted to gut the Second Amendment for eight years? Where are the liberal voices of outrage at the continuing war on gun owners waged by the Democrat Socialist tyrants in Sacramento?

California gun owners must awaken to the tremendous responsibility that has been lain upon their shoulders. Fate has placed us on the knife edge of history and we must demonstrate to the world that the Bill of Rights is the sacred property of the people of the United States and cannot be “infringed” upon by any mere legislature, judge, or brainwashed citizen.

The state of California stands in flagrant violation of the federal Constitution. In the years ahead California gun owners must register nothing and surrender nothing. Flood President Bush and Attorney General Ashcroft with letters pleading for federal intervention.

George Washington referred to the Second Amendment as “the cornerstone of American independence and liberty’s teeth.”

Without it, all of our other rights are no more than empty words on a piece of paper.
