Letter to the Editor: Second Amendment

TO THE EDITOR AND THE PEOPLE IN REGARDS TO THE ARTICLE IN THE JUNE 16, 2016 ISSUE AND GOVERNOR SNYDER SIGNS 23 BILLS.

The article The NRA misrepresents  ”The Second Amendment.”
Alice Shaw Carter also misrepresents ”The Second Amendment ”.
The first thing  one has to do when they research a old document like the Bill of Rights is to obtain a dictionary that was used at that same time period the document was written the definitions change with time. The folks of that period did not have any of these nuisance revenue generating regulations at their time period, they didn’t come until much later in history. The term in The Second Amendment means that  The Militia Person is proficient in all his arms and weapons!.
The other thing is that the people are the masters and the government are the servants, so how can the servant have superior arms and weapons?  If the government can have it we can have it.
Now My question What do you think the other term in The Second Amendment ,””Shall not be infringed”‘ mean???
The other thing that must be remember is you have no right to police protection.
Governor Snyder signs 23 bills SB 569  Increases the monetary amount local government are allowed to place in a ‘RAINY DAY FUND” from 15 TO 2O % .  If a local government  has any money top place in a Rainy Day fund it should be returned to the tax payer as they are being over taxed!

Restore Constitutional Carry

Below is a post for the “Restore Constitutional Carry” petition.  You can sign the petition but it would be a much better action to contact your local representative personally.  I’ve not known of any petitions that were given much attention, most are usually ignored, however, if a representatives constituents were to contact them directly that isn’t so easily ignored.  They need to know first person what you want them to do concerning this and if you’re proactive then they have to listen and will if they know your paying attention and going to hold them accountable.  Having said that, below is the link to take you to the page to sign the petition if you so desire.

Dear Fellow Patriot,

Fingerprint databases. Statist licensing schemes. Hefty fees.

The never-ending bureaucratic application and reapplication process. Plastic-coated permission slips.

Sometimes it seems the roadblocks and regulations anti-gun activists and their political allies have thrown up to discourage law-abiding Michiganders from carrying a concealed firearm are endless.

Well, guess what? They meant it that way.

The gun-grabbers know good and well that criminals don’t ask for permission to legally carry a firearm!

Their overbearing and unconstitutional “regulations” and “requirements” are meant to do nothing more than undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens just like you.

I don’t know about you, but I think it’s time Michigan Second Amendment supporters said, “Enough is enough!”

Please take a moment to sign this petition to your state lawmakers right away.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown, Executive Director, National Association for Gun Rights
