Do you know your state firearm laws? Are you aware of what states will accept your concealed carry permit and which ones won’t? Maybe you’d like to delve a little bit into American history and firearms?
First, I think an introduction is in order. My name is Danielle and I encourage you to join me in learning the answers to the questions above and more!
I wear so many hats, but I think the most important ones are the ones who truly define who I am. I am Christian, wife, homeschooling mother, backyard farmer and activist. My beliefs run deep and I have this uncontainable urge to stand up and be heard (some people would call this “having a big mouth”) .
Today I would like to touch a little on the right to own a gun to defend ourselves. Everyone is going to try and interpret the Second Amendment and come up with their own explanation. I recently had a fellow Patriot explain how to make it clearer to others that the Second Amendment guarantees that we have the right to own a firearm.
Try this with me. Pretend that the Second Amendment is referring to libraries and books. Does that mean that only the librarians should have books? It would say “the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed,” and that seems fairly clear to me that everyone has the right to own and read books. Right?!
As a woman, and a petite one, I completely put my trust into the Second Amendment which states that “the right of the people to keep and bare arms, shall not be infringed”. My life, and the lives of my children, may very well depend on that right one day. Who knows, it may also be your child’s life that depend on my right to carry and own a gun. The chances of me being able to fight off an attacker are very slim and my pistol may be what evens the score, or tips it more in my favor.
So if you are against people owning guns, people carrying a gun, or just guns altogether, take a while and think about this. Whether you believe that I shouldn’t carry a gun or not, it’s my decision and my right. My decision to carry and own a firearm doesn’t really concern you, unless one day I have to use it for your safety.
No matter what anyone thinks, it is clearly the right of the people to keep and bare firearms. Respect the decisions that others make for their lives.
I hope to make this series enjoyable as well as educational. Feel free to leave comments and let me know what you’d like to read about. Stay safe until next time when we cover the state of Alabama.
