The 2nd Amendment Is America’s First Responder.

According to Section 2 of the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (6 U.S.C. § 101). The phrase "First Responder" refers to those individuals who in the early stages of an incident are responsible for the protection and preservation of life, property, evidence, and the environment.

As citizens of our great nation, our right to own and use firearms is an integral part of civic responsibility to protect ourselves, our families, our homes, our religion, and our community.

Local law enforcement does a great job everyday. However, in the event of an unexpected man-made or natural disaster or in the event of an intruder bent on doing harm our role as a first responder is crystal clear. Fortunately, the solution is in our hand.

In a gunfight, our role as a first responder is not only clear, it’s vital. By the numbers, the average gunfight is an exchange of three rounds within three yards and is over in three seconds.

Clearly, no law enforcement in the world can save you at the moment of your greatest need; the need to save your life.

Owning a firearm is important. Equally important, is knowing how to use it. However, it is most important, to be mentally prepared for the day you may need to use a firearm.

Adding to the Gun Debate: Let's Arm Firefighters

House fires, water main breaks, hazardous materials, natural disasters and terrorism. In today's world. first responders face an ever growing number of new and dangerous situations. 

Typically, after dispatch, fire rescue crews and EMT's arrive on-scene of an emergency between 5 -15 minutes; Law enforcement usually arrive on-scene between 15-25 minutes.

Should Firefighters be allowed to carry weapons?

Real heroes have a right to protect and defend themselves.

Hillary Clinton Gun Control - Her Golden Opportunity

by Martin Gonzalez

Just days after the tragic shooting in a classroom of the Umpqua Community College at Roseburg, Oregon, Hillary Clinton used the occasion of this horrific, deadly human event to announce a series of gun control measures that would include abolishing legislation that protects firearms manufacturers, distributors, and dealers from being sued by shooting victims.

Today, while at a rally in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton also promised to, by presidential fiat, take unilateral action to expand background checks at gun shows.

During an interview on NBC's Today Show, Clinton also called for stricter regulations over online firearms sales.

"I am going to get those guns out of people's hands", said Clinton adding that her gun control plan includes "common sense proposals" to combat what she described as an "epidemic of gun violence".

But, here's the thing. Here's the nagging truth. More gun control simply does not equal saving more lives. If Hillary Clinton really cared about saving lives she'd start out by defunding Planned Parenthood.

Last year, according to the CDC, over 500,000 abortions were performed. Over the same period the same CDC reported that nearly 40,000 deaths occurred due to gun violence. That's a ratio of:

[ 12:1 ] 

In other words, every year, for every one person killed by gun violence, 12 people are killed by abortion.

Here's another stubborn fact: Right now, today, nearly 400 million people live in the USA. Hillary and all of her elitist liberals want gun control to save statistically speaking, less than 1/100th of one percent of the total population of our country - Yes. for those of you doing the math, that's 40,000 people.

Hillary's gun control plan is hardly proactive or impactful. If it's about "saving lives" Hillary and her ilk would do much better to put greater restrictions on Planned Parenthood.

It's estimated that nearly one in three American own a firearm. Hah! The truth is that number is much higher but most people would never admit to owning a gun, for whatever reason, so as not to give the bad guys an unfair tactical advantage. In this case, the word government could be substituted for bad guys.

So, estimating gun ownership at nearly 200 million people, here's what Hillary is proposing. 1) throwing out the US Constitution so that she can 2) compromise the safety and security of one's self, family, home, property, opportunities, and all other rights.

The insidious part of her do-gooder, gun control plan is that she knows full well that gun control does nothing to save lives. For proof, just look at the state's with the strictest gun control laws such as Illinois, Maryland, California, and Oregon.

Remember, the 2nd Amendment was created and exists: for self-defense, to repel invasion, and to prevent tyranny.

Hillary's gun control plan by executive order is tyranny.

If Obama can take way your right to own and use firearms because you're on Social Security; 
What's next? Will he take away your right to vote, have children, buy a home?

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today responded to published reports that the Obama administration is pushing to prevent citizens collecting Social Security benefits from owning guns if they have problems managing their own affairs as proof the president wants to strip as many people as possible of their Second Amendment rights while he remains in office.

“This could possibly disqualify millions of people from owning firearms and might prevent many others from seeking help,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb, himself a U.S. Army veteran. “It’s unconscionable that someone who might have problems balancing a checkbook or managing their finances would suddenly find himself or herself stripped of their right to keep and bear arms.”

The plan, according to the Los Angeles Times, “could potentially affect millions whose monthly disability payments are handled by others.” The report says this push “is intended to bring the Social Security Administration in line with laws that prevent gun sales to felons, drug addicts, immigrants in the United States illegally, and others.”

“So, let’s see,” Gottlieb observed. “The Obama administration wants to equate some Social Security recipients who own guns with felons, drug addicts and illegal immigrants. That’s not simply insulting, it’s insidious, because who knows where this could lead?

“What’s next,” he wondered. “Will they take away someone’s right to vote, claiming they’re not competent?”

Published reports estimated about 4.2 million adults are now receiving monthly Social Security benefits that are managed by someone else, designated as “representative payees.”

“What may seem reasonable to people who reflexively support any and all gun control is really just one more effort by the Obama White House to erode Second Amendment rights any way they can,” Gottlieb stated. “Taking away someone’s Second Amendment rights because they can’t manage their finances is wrongheaded and repugnant.”
