In Barack H. Obama’s Inaugural Speech today he called for a unified America. An America that would carry out the true meaning of the founding fathers idea of, “All Men Are Created Equal.” He stressed the importance of “Solving Problems In Our Times.” Even though he touched on it lightly, the pressing problem of our time is the growing threat of militias arming themselves anticipating an overthrow of the government.
There is rhetoric going on in Washington about impeaching the president if he does anything they deem as being an infringement on their Second Amendment Rights. Yes, their right to possess and bear arms. "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." Nowhere in that Amendment did it give the idea that an individual had a right to keep and bear any weapons other than in the context of a militia.
Militias were necessary in the south because they were used primarily to control, capture or even execute rebellious slaves. For fear that the southern states would object to this amendment's ability to demand militias to defend the country, the language was changed from “being necessary to the security of a free country” to “being necessary to the security of a free state”. Unless gun control opponents have the notion that they are going back into the slave trade business, they need another argument other than the Second Amendment. As often stated by one of our current day civil rights activist Al Sharpton, “We can have our own opinion but we can’t have our own facts.” That statement was never more true than in the Election of 2012 where Mitt Romney’s entire campaign was based on a misrepresentation of facts. Mitt Romney was endorsed by the NRA and by all accounts would have given them anything they wanted if elected.
The nation elected the man who at 12:15 a.m. today took the oath of office as the next president to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. It is high time in America that we allow our elected leaders to fulfill the oaths that they take and reject the notion that Washington is controlled by big money and special interest groups. What I saw on the National Mall was a sea of citizens witnessing history before their eyes. Even history tells us that “We the People” did not mean “We the corporations and big money.”
