Article the Fourth
[ Amendment II ]

"A well regulated Militia,
being necessary to the security
of a free State,
the right of the people
to keep and bear Arms,
shall not be infringed."
"Mental Nourishment . . . Think, First"
REMEMBER THE PAST, LEARN FROM THAT IN THE FUTURE
L I B E R T Y   A N D   F R E E D O M

"Government legislation to ban select firearms
and their components will not reduce
future criminal gun violence in America.
Laws only provide a means to prosecute
when a law has been broken.

Strict Gun laws have been in place
for decades to serve that purpose.
Restricting law-abiding citizens isn't the answer.

Stripping the rights of law-abiding
citizens isn't the solution."
