Riots, mass shootings, violent political “activism” — it’s hard to imagine that anyone in America couldn’t relate to 2A and the feeling of fear throughout the country, nor is it any wonder why gun sales have surged.
According to the FBI, there were approximately 4.7 million background checks for new gun purchases in March 2021, which was the highest on record since the FBI began keeping track 20 years ago.
Of course, the debate over gun control is as old as America itself. And in the wake of recent mass shootings and increased crime rates, it always seems to come back to the forefront of public discussion. But what often gets lost in these debates is that the 2A isn’t just about guns — it’s about our right to self-defense.
In a country where violence seems to rise, more and more people are looking to firearms to protect themselves and their families. And given the state of the world today, it’s not hard to see why with the rising crime rates you’re seeing a mass exodus from Liberal run cities.
Violence in America
Unfortunately, violence is not new for Americans. The ’60s were full of violence and cultural differences. The deaths of President John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King are just two examples of high-profile acts of violence. The ’70s saw protests of the Vietnam war, and the ’80s and ’90s suffered from street Violence due to interracial crime, causing America’s inner cities to suffer violence.
The 21st century is riddled with violence in our schools, communities, churches, and cities. Our streets are not as safe as they were two decades ago. People experience violence on vacations, at little league games, and at concerts. A couple was brutally attacked during a ride in LA via a rideshare company.
Today, on any radio or television, pictures of violence dominate the news. The latest violence is the calm protests, which turned into violence in major cities because of the Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade.
Remember the unspeakable assault on the elementary school that started with an 18-year-old gunman who killed 19 school children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas.
This violence continues as our political leaders chant that guns are the problem. They demand we give up our Second Amendment right to own and bear arms. Instead, law-abiding citizens use firearms to protect themselves against the growing criminal violence on the streets.
However, amidst the clammer to ban guns and change the Second Amendment, The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the Constitution provides a right to carry a gun outside the home, issuing a major decision on the meaning of the Second Amendment. The 6-3 ruling was the court’s second important decision on the right to “keep and bear arms.”
Sure, criminals use guns to perform acts of violence. But, over the last two years, more and more violence has taken place with fire used to burn our cities, rocks to break windows and raid our businesses, clubs used to beat our police officers, and guns have been used to assault our schools.
Violence is a serious issue, but there is more profound concern about violence in America than gun ownership.
The deeper issue behind the violence in America is the challenge to help those who suffer from mental health issues, home domestic violence, bullying, racism, and other social diseases that motivate the criminals to commit violence.
If the politicians, our lawmakers would review the source of the violence issue before acting to take away the right to bear arms and protect ourselves as afforded by the second amendment. They would do more to reduce violence in America.
Criminals Are Getting Let Out By Liberal DAs
Destiny Riddle, a car driver, acted violently on two passengers after they exited her vehicle and attempted to kill the former passengers by running over them with her vehicle.
Riddle fled from the crime scene only to be arrested by the police and was only in jail for four days due to “political concerns.”
This isn’t an unusual result for these violent kinds of incidents.
Violent repeat criminals like Riddle are constantly getting let out of jail by liberal DAs.
The left wants to restrict Americans’ access to firearms and right to self-defense while at the same time watching as politically-aligned prosecutors let violent criminals back out on the street.
All of this, along with the defund-the-police and anti-cop mentality on the left as we enter the Mid Terms and 2024, we need to ask ourselves — how much more are we going to put up with?
The Ever-Present Threat Of Antifa & BLM
Black Lives Matter advocate and “mobilizer” Stacy Abrahms was recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, which is ironic following BLM’s almost half-year rampage of assault, arson, and property destruction across the US starting in the summer of 2020.
If you don’t think America is dangerous, ask the residents of Portland, Seattle, or Kenosha how they feel about the state of their cities following the BLM and Antifa riots.
The answer is clear — we need to protect ourselves, and in America, that takes the form of the rights and freedoms granted to us by the Second Amendment.
If we don’t act to defend our God-given right to bear arms, soon, we may not have any other choice but to submit to the rule of lawbreakers.
We must unite and make it clear that we will not be subjugated by lawlessness and violence.
Why the Red United States?
After having a first-hand experience of a violent crime, Chris & Kristin decided it was time to create the Red United States, where people could have a voice.
They believe we should all have a voice and stand for America. The majority of citizens want a better America, a strong America, a proud America.
