Freedom is our birthright. Our Creator has bestowed each of us with unalienable rights. These rights preexist any form of government and they can not be taken away from us by man or government. Among these rights is the right to keep and bear arms. This right is codified in the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and no law or treaty may abridge it. The only way the Constitution may be changed is through the amendment process. Even then our rights are, again, unalienable and may not be abridged. The proposed U.N. arms treaty under consideration seeks to abridge our freedoms. For a treaty to become valid, it must be ratified by two-thirds of the Senate. We have seen the current President usurp powers and operate outside Congressional approval and thus outside the Constitution. We have seen the Justice Department ignore arms export laws and provide weapons to the drug cartels of Mexico. These corruptions have resulted in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds, if not thousands, of Mexican citizens. There must be consequences for such usurpations and corruptions. In 1776, our founding fathers showed King George that there were consequences for his Tyranny. Like our founding fathers, we must be willing to pledge our lives, fortunes and sacred honor to restore the Republic. We must help these current Tyrants understand their further usurpations will result in the loss of these things for them!
