I Support The Second Amendment (Petition)
Our Second Amendment rights are under a new wave of attacks. Sign this national petition and stand in defense of the Second Amendment.
YES! I'm standing for our Second Amendment rights against those who want to repeal or weaken our right to bear arms.
defend the nation. They knew from experience because the British tried to unarm the colonists and almost succeeded. Times have not changed. Citizens need arms to protect the country.
Americans should not have to fear their 2nd ammendment rights will be taken away. Our basic right to defend ourselves and our families. Right now in New Hampshire the government is trying to pass a bill that police can’t use lethal force. This is ignorant and absurd. Expecting our police to serve and protect without being able to use lethal force if necessary would be comparable to deploying a military unit for a mission but telling them they can’t use lethal force.
Our police should always be able to have the option of using lethal force. Police protect us here on our own soil. I’m part of the blueblood family. My husband and a few dna family members are cops and I’m a medic. I can tell you first hand police do not want to shoot someone, they don’t want to take someone’s life. They pray to get through their career on the force without ever having to draw their gun. However, this isn’t always feasible so they train incase they have to. When a situation arises where they have no option but to use lethal force they do what is necessary. Then follow department protocol for officer involved shooting. When the officer can they sit in their squad. Their blank face now holds tears as they feel the full weight of having to use lethal force. They hit the steering wheel as they say why didn’t they listen, why didn’t they stop, why didn’t they put down the knife or gun. Police get judged for doing their job. You want them to serve & protect. You expect to go out wherever you need or want to go knowing your safe. You expect that when your kids go to school they will return home safe. You expect your family to be safe as you sleep the night away in bed. We have come to expect safety with no thought or reguard to the price that is paid by those who have sworn to protect and serve everyone equally and in doing so they put their lives at risk every day for people they don’t know. If your family was being held hostage and a police sniper had a shot you would expect that officer to use lethal force to protect you and your family. If a store is being robbed or a shooter is loose in a school you expect the police to do everything they can to protect the people in the store or the kids and teachers at the school even if that means using lethal force.
Now imagine a shooter enters a school full of kids. The cops know how to stop the shooter, they know where the shooter is and that the shooter is headed to the cafeteria where 200 kids are eating lunch. You’re at work this comes across every channel as live news and your heart drops as they mention the name of your childs school. You rush down to the school. Ambulances wait in a row down the street. You see the swat van and the cops. You notice none of the cops are headed inside to take the shooter down instead they are pushing the crowd of parents back. You yell out to the cops why aren’t you going in to save our kids? Over a speaker a cop ask everyone to quiet down and listen. He stated he needs everyone to stay back incase the shooter comes out. That they have confirmed there is 1 person in the school with a gun. Several shots where fired into a classroom full of kids and the shooter is headed to the cafeteria where 200 kids are. However they can’t enter the school and take down the shooter before he reaches the cafeteria as they would only be shot upon trying. That as of last week the government banned police from using lethal force so instead of being able to enter the school and take down the shooter they needed to wait and come up with a plan to stop the shooter without using lethal force.
About right now you’re thinking I’m crazy cops train to use lethal force in situations like this to stop take the shooter down before any more lives are taken. You’re correct the above story sounds crazy and yes cops do train for this. Right now as you read this the government in New Hampshire is fighting to push a bill through which bans police from using lethal force.
Do you really think that the government will stop at just New Hampshire? No, New Hampshire will just be the first state with 49 states that will follow.
If the government is going after banning cops from using lethal force they aren’t going to allow civilians to keep their guns.
How quick do you think all cops will resign when the option of using lethal force is taken away and they are left with no way to protect themselves or others from a criminal with a gun or a knife. Cops will quickly resign leaving noone to serve and protect. Leaving people to drive as they want, criminals to rob places, medics unable to get to someone needing medical help as there are no cops to secure the scene. What do you think Trump’s next move would be? Martial law.
You think are 2nd ammendment rights aren’t being slowly taken away and this bill won’t pass let’s jump back in history to July 16, 2015, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. A terrorist committed a drive-by shooting at a recruiting center, then traveled to a U.S. Navy Reserve center and continued firing, where he was killed by police in a gunfight. Four Marines died on the spot, a Navy officer died from his wounds 2 days later, and 3 were injured. 13 months earlier three people were killed and more than a dozen were wounded at Fort Hood, Texas. Soldiers who survived deployments injured and killed at recruiting centers as the government’s orders are to put on their military uniform but they are not allowed to carry a gun at work for protection even after being attacked on American soil. They were told to “close the blinds”.
The Military is already banned from carrying a gun at work for protection but must wear the uniform. In the above attack police killed the terrorist as our military is banned from carrying guns at work. When they pass the bill banning cops from using lethal force and another recruiting center comes under attack many more will be killed as they are banned from using lethal force. The terrorist shot over 100 rounds, had a vest on that held many more magazines, and had another automatic gun in his car with more rounds. If police didn’t use lethal force how many more Military officers would of died.
We are already seeing the pattern of our guns our right to defend ourselves being taken away and it will only get worse. The government can’t let civilians keep their guns if military and cops are being banned from carrying or using. So who will be left to stop the criminals who will continue to use their guns.
Our cops our the soldiers keeping us all safe on American soil just as our military deploys to fight wars to keep America safe and free. All of us who have gun permits know the weight of the gun we carry. We know the weight of each bullet in our gun. Its not a few ounces it’s the weight of human lifes. We respect our guns. One day ISIS will come to our soil just as we were invaded on 9-11. Americans have the right to defend ourselves against them. One day military, Veterans, cops, and Americans will fight side by side on our soil to keep America free and terrorists out. Without our 2nd ammendment rights America will fall and be taken over as we will not have the ability to protect ourselves our families our neighbors our nation.
Time to stand up for our rights. Time to use your voice. Let’s not only fight to keep our 2nd ammendment rights but right now help the cops in New Hampshire fight the bill the government is trying to push through. The government won’t stop there they have 49 states left to ban cops from using lethal force. Being able to keep our right to defend ourselves won’t happen unless we come together and help the cops first. Write to Trump to Pence to the Representatives & Congress of New Hampshire. Write to your state’s representatives too. Let not let this bill go through.
