Stay Out of Our 2nd Amendment Rights

      Tina Huston

      Parker, CO

Millions of military and civilian Americans have sacrificed their lives for freedom and for the rights set forth in the Constitution. Freedom is the exception and not the rule throughout the world. The 2nd Amendment affords us the right to bear arms in order to protect ourselves against criminals, to use as tools on our farms and ranches, to protect ourselves against a tyrannical government, and as it turns out, to protect ourselves from large corporations that feel a sense of entitlement to tell us how to live our lives.

Amazon.com has teamed up with the city of Seattle and several other businesses to offer a gun buyback on January 26, 2013. Amazon is donating $30,000.00 in gift cards to coerce people into turning in their fire arms. Individuals will receive a $100.00 gift card to forfeit their Constitutional right to protect themselves in their homes when they turn in a hand gun and $200.00 to forfeit their Constitutional right to protect themselves in their homes to turn in rifles and shot guns. What will this accomplish? Every American will have the right to take insult to the idea that we would forfeit our right to protect our freedom and our persons over $100.00. It will mock every veteran, active military personnel, and those who have died for the 2nd Amendment. Private citizens will be less able to protect themselves in their homes. Criminals can turn in firearms used in crimes and receive a gift card. The evidence will be melted down via the Seattle police. It will make the government and big corporations more powerful and the private citizen more at their mercy.

You can choose to send a message to amazon.com right now by doing one or more of the following:

- choose to sign this petition.
- choose to close your Amazon account until Amazon concedes to back away from our 2nd Amendment rights and stick to selling wares on the internet.
- choose to join the National Rifle Association at http://home.nra.org/#
- choose to purchase the firearm of your choice and get trained in its safety and use.

I use the word choose repeatedly and intentionally because you still have the Constitutional right to choose. Responsible gun owners keep that choice in tact and level the playing field.

I wish the world were ideal and that all of humanity were sane and peaceful and loving toward one another, but it's not, and it never will be. I encourage all of you to go back and review your history books. If they disarm the public, they can do anything they want. Don't forget the multitude of countries that have been forced into dictatorship because the people were unarmed and the countries that are still that way today.

Thank you for protecting your freedom.

      I am so tired of these progressive-socialistic Democrats (a.k.a., Liberals or better described as Communists) companies using their vast presence and financial resources to push their political agenda. Everyone from the President to the Brent Musburgers and Bloombergs, and companies like Google need to leave alone our God given right to protect life, liberty and property. Our American forefathers ratified the 2nd Amendment into our Constitution not to be riddled with restrictive legislation (i.e., laws, rules, ordinances, exceptions, etc.). But instead with the unbelievable foresight that Americans would again one day be faced with what they (Colonial Americans) experienced with the British attempting to disarm colonial America. How right our forefathers we're right to ratify the 2nd Amendment into the Constitution! Look what occurred in Nazi German! And now sadly look what is taking place in a progressive-liberal America with so-called Americans (a.k.a., liberal, progressives, etc.) attempting to achieve. But the progressive-liberal-socialistic agenda to entirely strip away our 2nd Amendment right will ultimately fail...regardless of the method necessary to ensure they do fail. Wake up America!!!

      nobody has the right to take away our 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms. Our fore- fathers wrote this amendment so that the people of America have a right to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government, and from imminent threats that may come against our country and families. everybody needs to back off, and leave The people's constitution alone. because if this crap keeps on going I can guarantee that the people will rise up and take back our country. God bless America.

      Programs like this encourage gun theft. They are free to steal a gun, use it in the commission of a crime, sell it to the police with no questions asked. The police will pay you for the evidence, then destroy it.
