Hey, legislators – We’re angry with YOU.

Suzanna HuppMembers of the US Congress and various state legislatures have made no secret of the fact that they want American citizens disarmed. They are using several recent tragic killings to bolster their absurd claim that more gun control legislation will prevent future crimes.

Watch as Suzanna Hupp testifies before the US Congress about gun control legislation. She has an incredibly compelling personal story. There isn’t much we can add to her words as she defends the Second Amendment:

In 1995, the Texas Legislature passed the Concealed Handgun License (CHL) law, allowing Texas citizens with the required permit to carry concealed weapons. Hupp had been present at the 1991 Luby’s massacre in Kileen, Texas, where both of her parents were shot and killed. She campaigned tirelessly for the new Texas law. Legislation allowing citizens to carry concealed weapons was signed by then-Governor George W. Bush and became part of a broad movement to allow U.S. citizens to easily obtain permits to carry concealed weapons.

Hupp later testified across the country in support of concealed-carry laws, including Missouri’s HB-1720. You can read a transcript of her March 1992 testimony here. She was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1996, representing the 54th District from 1997-2007.

More recently, Hupp appeared in 2013 before the US Senate Judiciary Committee to tell her story:

Best 7-minute gun rights speech ever?

Gun SpeechThe United States added 10 amendments — a Bill of Rights — to the Constitution in 1791. The second is just 27 words long, and quite easily understood:

Amendment II

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.

The presenter in this video is conservative blogger Bill Whittle. His remarks make more sense than most speeches we’ve heard recently regarding gun rights:

What would you like to hear leaders say about the Second Amendment and your right to keep and bear arms?

If your senator doesn’t sound like this, you need a new senator

Vicki MarbleColorado Democrats have proposed one bill after another to restrict citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms. Watch Republican Senator Vicki Marble stand firm against the tyranny of gun grabbers, demanding that “the demonizing of law-abiding citizens has to stop.”

Bank of America opposes your Second Amendment rights

Anti-Gun-BOAIf you have any financial dealings with Bank of America, it’s probably time to close your accounts. The financial giant has long been connected to corruption and illegal activity (including acquisition of the smarmy train wreck known as Countrywide Financial). Now BoA’s open hostility to the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is being exposed.

According to Kelly McMillan, director of operations for McMillan Group International, a representative of BoA told him directly that they no longer wanted to do business with the company because of its connections to the firearms industry.

The manufacturer promptly dumped corrupt BoA. According to McMillan, the company is working to select a financial institution that not only tolerates, but strongly supports, our right to keep and bear arms:

A message for law enforcement and military

Second AmendmentStatists who hold power in Washington, DC, state capitals, major U.S. cities, and even small towns like Burlington, Vermont have revealed their game plan to “eliminate ‘gun violence.'” Unchecked, this effort will undoubtedly produce the same kind of results as the Federal government’s largest abject failure, the “War on Poverty.” More Federal gun control will also fail, and lead to terrible disasters throughout the country.

Real Americans know that gun control laws have unintended consequences. When gun ownership is severely restricted or outlawed, only criminals have guns. And they know law-abiding citizens are unarmed.

The statists’ desire to restrict, regulate or even remove your Constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms is overwhelming. They are openly urging President Barack Hussein Obama to violate the Second Amendment by issuing an executive order that would likely:

  • eliminate access to hundreds of different kinds of guns
  • impose strict, new laws on law-abiding citizens, unnecessarily regulating or perhaps outlawing the private sale or purchase of weapons
  • severely limit the number of rounds in a legally owned clip or magazine
  • require fingerprinting and photo identification – stored in a national database – for all legal gun owners

Ordinary Americans have common sense enough to know that more gun control laws are not the answer. They are angered and frustrated as politicians disregard and flagrantly violate the plain language of our founding documents. If you are a member of law enforcement or the military, here is a special message for you:
