***TAKE ACTION NOW***
This administration wanted to ban AR-15's outright and that failed. Now they are looking for any backdoor loophole they can find to limit their use by taking ammunition off the market. Furthermore, the Second Amendment was not enshrined in the Bill of Rights with the idea they wanted to protect sport shooting. It was most certainly written to ensure that the American people had the means necessary to throw off a tyrannical government. Today we live in a corrupt and morally imbalanced society where making such a statement in a Fox interview on September 16, 2010 earned me a listing on the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence's Insurrectionism Timeline. Such will never preclude me from speaking the truth. I'll wear that as a badge of honor. George Mason, co-author of the Second Amendment said, "I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them." - Speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 14, 1778
This grab for ammo will not stop here just as the grab for guns has not stopped. They've been working every angle they can think of. Recall the multiple attempts to ban lead? This fight is not just about one type of ammunition. It is about a grab for freedom and liberty. And if the American people don't start getting engaged it will continue. Patrick Henry said, "The great object is, that every man be armed ... Everyone who is able may have a gun."- Debates in the Several State Conventions on Adoption of the Federal Constitution, Jonathan Elliot, ed. 1836, vol. 3, p. 386
Patrick Henry, "Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" - Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, Jonathan Elliot, ed. 1836, vol. 3, p.168
