When I enlisted in the Army in 1962, it was a time when the world was a quiet place, quiet in that there were no threats of violence, such as we have today. There were no terror bombings, no wars. There were of course some things going on as there always are, but not like we see today. When I took my first ets 3 years later, we were embroiled in Vietnam, President Kennedy had been assanated and the world was a different place, Today we are in a world that is very different from that time, I ended up re-enlisting and spent 12 years in the military. My brother is now 100% disabled from Agent Orange and we are both in our 60’s and retired.

The world is much more violent than it was in the 60’s, hatred is a way of life for many in our world. We hear it coming from governments such as Iran and others in the Middle East. We hear it from terrorists who kill women and children and hide behind their own children so that they can continue to kill and maim. In our own nation we find killers going into schools and movie theatres, killing innocent people, because they themselves are not quite right mentally. The government is trying to punish law abiding citizens by destroying the 2nd Amendment to our constitution. As Jefferson said, it is we the people who are vested the power in our country, we are the ones who are to exercise that power, and that it is our right and duty to be at all times armed. I note that these people who have killed innocents in our country, got their guns because they acted illegally, the ones who were mentally disturbed actually were never reported to the proper authority so that they could have purchased their guns. It is the law that felons, and mentally ill are to be reported and added to the no guns list. This was not done and is not today enforced. It is atrocious that our government will allow drug cartels and criminals to have guns, Fast and Furious but will take guns away from the law abiding.

One of the surest ways for tyrants to be able to control the population is to disarm that population so the people cannot fight back. Our nation is rapidly becoming a tyranny, when armed men hiding behind badges can break down our doors and search our homes without warrant, we are living in a police state. When peaceable citizens are routed out of the place they live in the middle of the night by armed men so that they can search our homes, we are living in a police state. We are no longer a free people when so-called law enforcement can send a drone against us to look into our private property, when they can tap into our phone calls and email accounts, we are living in a police state.

Are we that afraid of terrorists that we will allow ourselves to be manhandled before getting on a plane, or stopped while driving from one town to another so we can be asked if we are citizens. I think we have given up too much of our freedom in the face of a perceived threat. Where is the honor in what we are now becoming? This is our Country and we owe her our duty, our honor, but our Constitution guarantees us our freedom and I for one can see no valid reason to allow the Federal Government to steal that from us.
