Senator Brownback understands that firearms are necessary for both home defense and more traditional purposes, like hunting and the formation of militias. The Second Amendment is the one which makes all others possible; without a well-armed citizenry, tyrants would easily swarm over the population and enslave us all. In Brownback’s words:
At the heart of the Bill of Rights is the Second Amendment. This Amendment guarantees an individual the right to keep and bear arms, which is essential, as the Amendment itself affirms, to “the security of a free state.” Restrictive gun control laws aimed at weakening this constitutional right are not the answer. Instead, it is important for the government to enforce criminal gun laws already on the books, for communities to stand against gun violence, and for parents to teach children about gun safety.
It is clear from their track record that Democrats, who have no value for civil liberties despite their posturing on behalf of Nazis and Islamists and child molesters, will take our guns away at the first available opportunity. This will make it easier for them to impose their politically correct, secular humanist agenda on the American people.
It is the duty of every American who values freedom, liberty and democracy to vote Republican in November 2008. However, no Republican candidate is better suited to the defense of these values than Senator Brownback. He alone adequately embodies the conservative positions on the issues that America needs to maintain our pre-eminence as the leader of the free world. He, alone, will keep America from becoming Frenchified, Sovieted, or Islamisized. Sadly, many of his opponents in both parties cannot make the same boast. That’s why we must fight TODAY to ensure Brownback is our President TOMORROW!
