As we all know the second amendment gives us the freedom to own guns so that we can protect ourselves and our families . If we lose our second amendment rights than we will certainly lose our first amendment rights which allow us religious freedom , freedom of speech , a free press and the right to assemble . We would essentially lose all the rights afforded us by the constitution . This protection has to be preserved by strong conservative individuals such as myself . If you think the politicians/lawyers will protect these rights , think again . Half of them are openly calling for confiscating our weapons . What gives them the right , nothing . These politicians/lawyers put their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold the constitution and then blatantly violate their pledge , their honor , their word . We all have to stand strong and together to preserve and protect this great country .
