Stop taking Constitutional Rights away from the American People

The Constitution of the United States of America is what makes our nation great and protects the citizens from an unjust, overbearing government. If not held accountable, big government could enslave an entire nation, transforming us into another desolate third world country. We will vote against any official(local, state or federal) that ignores, restricts or otherwise hampers the Constitution in such a manner that would endanger the rights and freedoms of the American people.

Here are a couple of examples of how your rights are under attack. According to the NRA, Illinois is the only state that does not have a right to carry law and will not issue a permit. CA, MA, CT, NJ ,MD, DE, AL, NY also infringe upon the 2nd Amendment as they have restricted firearm laws and may or may not issue a permit. Indiana Supreme Court ruled against the 4th Amendment during 2011 in a 3-2 vote. Making Indiana a "Police State". President Obama signed the bill that takes away your right to a speedy and fair trial with the NDAA...virtually shredding the 6th Amendment

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) monitors all social media to identify "dissent"  among the people. This goes hand in hand with the recent SOPA/PIPA . Just look at how government officials have been trying to deny the "Occupy Wall Street" movement by attempting to deny the people the right to assembly and free speech...an obvious 1st Amendment attack. And let's not forget how the Hurricane Katrina survivors were locked down and were unable to leave the sports arena while martial law was imposed on them.

Currently, President Obama and Hilary Clinton have been working hand in hand with the UN to try and ratify the UN Small Arms Treaty. This so-called "treaty" is said to try and hamper the trade of weapons in and out of foreign countries to stop wars in unstable countries. But what it will do, if you read the proposal, is put EVERY American at risk and give tyrant governments access to AMERICAN gun owners data!! The treaty goes on to say what firearms AND ammunition that the government would ALLOW for civilian use...IN AMERICA! If you have followed this project by now you already know that the Obama administration wants to outlaw almost every firearm larger than .22 caliber and ALL handguns...leaving U.S. citizens at the mercy of an already out of control administration. Even if you are not a supporter of firearms rights, one thing is clear...an attack on just 1 freedom..is an attack on all. This is the exact reason why our founding fathers drafted the US Consitution and the Bill of Rights..to protect the freedom of future generations of Americans.

Stand up, sign the petition and tell our government where your position is on your rights. Don't let silence be consent to losing your rights. I will also forward this petition to your state Governor if you wish to identify the state you are from when you support this petition. Also, here is a link that allows you to choose a state and send an email.   http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Governors.shtml

Thanks

    2. UN Arms Treaty is DEAD for now!

      Talks over the UN Arms Trade Treaty fell apart today, effectively killing the agreement. The Arms Trade Treaty Legal Blog reports that the process seemed to be moving to completion when the United States requested an extension to the time to negotiate the agreement. This opened the door to other countries to begin registering objections, and it soon became clear that reaching agreement within the allowed timeframe would be impossible. The proposed treaty, which raised considerable domestic opposition from gun rights advocates in the United States, died before it had a chance to become a threat. As a delegate from China observed, "C'est la vie et la vie c'est ça."

      The UN may take up the matter at a later date, but for now it is on indefinite hiatus.

      My family allways had guns for hunting, it would not be good for many reasons if fire arms were banned.

      I am signing because I am tired of being controlled by our government. I am sick and tired of people voting for things that will just take away one more of our rights in America. These people are just giving up all of our freedom as an american citizen. It's time to do something about this or else we will be under total control of a one world government. I know I don't want that. One thing is for certain, if we give up our gun rights, we have no way to fight back when our government comes down on us. I don't want that.

      Basic constitutional right. I did some school in the UK and felt very unsafe in my own home while there . Criminials had guns, knives, axes and all sorts of weapons over there. There is huge problem with robbing and beating up little old men and women in their own homes there and robbing them. Read the UK papers, this is an epidemic there. It is aweful . We have a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT in the United States to gun ownership, to defend myself and my loved ones and right to be safe in my own home. This is assigned to us by the Constitution of the United States. Criminals find the guns and they find other weapons and still commit deadly crimes whether there are guns legal or not. I have lived in a society where guns are illegal and there is just as much, if not more, reported and unreported violent crime. Many people are afraid to report these crimes because they are still left so vulnerable and unprotected. People are afraid in their own homes. Appalling. It is so good to back home in native America where I have the right to protect myself and my loved ones. The people that think if we remove guns that gun crime will end are extremely naive. 'We the people' have a basic constitutional right to own and bear arms and I will vote against and support impeachment any Congressmen, Administration and/or Representative that believes that they are above the Constitution of United States and try to set rules which remove basic constitutional right to bear arms.
