I believe in the Second Amendment for two main reasons. Those reasons are probably VERY similar to many of yours out there. One, I believe in the United States Constitution, and its Second Amendment allows me to bear arms to protect myself and my family from a tyrannical government. Yep. That's one.
Two, I believe in protecting my family from criminals. And despite what liberals would like you to believe, criminals and evil will exist in this world, no matter what. They willl CONTINUE to exist - and be armed - even if and when the bleeding heart liberals decide to try to implement legislation that tries to somehow cancel out that thing called REALITY.
In other words, you CANNOT LEGISLATE EVIL.
This story in particular really spoke to me this morning, because it's about a Georgia mother who was at home with her nine-year old twins, and a guy (Paul Slater) broke into her house with a crowbar. He actually rang the doorbell first. But when she didn't answer, he broke in through her office window. She thought fast, grabbed her kids, grabbed her gun and her phone, and rushed upstairs. She sat there, more than likely frightened out of her mind, with her kids, and she could hear the man searching her house, y'all. Completely invading her home...capable of God-knows-what.
And after rummaging through her home, he found where she and her kids were hiding.
“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” [Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman] told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.
Imagine what would have happened had she not been armed. Or what may have happened to her children. This guy has been arrested SIX TIMES in the past four years. I can imagine these things, because reality shows that criminals don't follow rules. They never have, never will. But those on the left seem to have a hard time with this concept, as they're too busy dreaming about what a utopian paradise we would all live in if only law-abiding citizens could have their Second Amendment rights squelched.
