Our elected officials and citizens need a civics lesson
If we allow the hacking away or redefining the II Amendment by people that appose gun freedom what is next. How about taking our freedom of speech away, which is what gives people the very right to argue their point? Hmmm, or how many would be in favor of taking women’s right to vote away XIX Amendment.
We have the right to fight ALL enemies’ Foreign and Domestic. YES that even means our own governments, politicians, and our own citizens from taking away our rights because it may not align with some misguided view, misinterpretation, or worse yet to get votes.
RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS
Some believe that the United States is a democracy, but it is actually the perfect example of a constitutional republic. A pure democracy would be a form of government in which the leaders, while elected by the people, are not constrained by a constitution as to its actions. In a republic, however, elected officials cannot take away or violate certain rights of the people.
The United States is not a democracy; It’s a Constitutional Republic for the people by the people. A form of government in which officials are elected by citizens to lead them as directed by their country’s constitution. In a republic, a constitution or charter of rights protects certain inalienable rights that cannot be taken away by the government, even if it has been elected by a majority of voters. In a “pure democracy,” the majority is not restrained in this way and can impose its will on the minority.
Limits on Governmental Power
A constitutional republic is put in place to prevent the government from becoming a tyrannical ruler. The United States Constitution contains protections against what is referred to as “the tyranny of the majority” on the rights of American citizens. Examples of constitutional republic protections include:
- Congress cannot prohibit the expression of free speech, nor the free exercise of one’s religion, and it cannot infringe on a citizen’s right to possess a gun. (First and Second Amendments)
“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
