Dear President Trump:
You are about to lose a great deal of support and I don’t want to see that happen.
I am horrified to know that you are going to stab the American people in the back once again with regards to our right to “keep and bear arms,” which is what keeps us FREE as Americans. We have fought for you, supported you and defended you these last three and a half years. Did you lie to us to get our votes?
Is it true you are going to go against your many promises to uphold, defend and protect our unique Second Amendment rights, by signing an overreaching and unconstitutional “Red Flag” anti-gun bill into law? Is it also true that you fully intend to confirm, as your next Attorney General, that un-American, anti-Second Amendment, anti-Rule of Law hack William P. Barr? The same William P. Barr who recently told rabidly anti-gun Senator Dianne Feinstein during his Senate confirmation hearing…
“I also think we need to push along the ERPOs [Gun Confiscation Orders], so we have red flag laws to supplement the use of the background check… This is the single most important thing I think we can do in the gun control area to stop these massacres from happening in the first place.”
Mr. President, this is NOT what we voted for and this is NOT what you promised us.
Let me remind you sir, you swore an oath to uphold, defend and protect The Declaration of Independence, The United States Constitution, and our precious Bill of Rights. And We the People must demand that you honor that oath to the letter.
Are you unfamiliar with the 5th & 14th Amendments to the Constitution, which specifically guarantee an individual’s right to Due Process under the law? Please take a moment to review these absolutely necessary (if we are to remain a FREE country) rights…
Fifth Amendment: “No person shall be…deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”
Fourteenth Amendment: “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
And let’s not forget that pesky little 4th Amendment, Mr. President.
Fourth Amendment: ” The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
Or the Amendment, which protects all other Amendments in our Bill of Rights, the 2nd Amendment.
Second Amendment: “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.”
Do you honestly believe the Progressives who run congress, whether they’re Democrat or Republican, are going to be satisfied in their quest to completely deny American citizens their right to “keep and bear arms,” with this un-Constitutional and un-American piece of “Red Flag” legislation?
No. They will NEVER be satisfied until every law-abiding American is stripped of their Constitutionally protected firearms and the Second Amendment is abolished completely and forever.
President Trump, firearms themselves are NOT the cause of mass shootings and violence in America. Each of these inanimate objects is incapable of inflicting any sort of damage to an individual or individuals without the help of a person or persons input. This is based on rational thought and common sense. Even if an individual is suspected to be mentally incompetent, by a trained psychiatrist or psychologist, that does not give you, or our government, the right to seize an individual’s firearms, before the law of Due Process, protected under the 5th & 14th Amendments, has taken place.
You and I both know that these horrific shooting events would never occur if it weren’t for “Gun Free” zones and laws that PROHIBIT concealed carry. If schools allowed highly trained teachers and staff to conceal carry and made it known “our teachers may be armed and will use whatever force is necessary to protect students;” logic, reason and common sense tells us that these events would almost NEVER happen. The only reason these troubled people dare to enter a school or a church or a movie theater with the purpose of taking innocent lives, is because they know the people inside are defenseless. They are cowards and would never enter if they knew they would be faced with armed citizens. It’s infuriating that the solution is so simple and yet, we are shouted down by the progressive left and the “fake news” media, playing on America’s emotions to further their agenda, instead of PROTECTING our children WITH our Constitutional rights!
When questioned on the subject of “common sense gun solutions,” I believe your exact words were, “take the firearms first, and then go to court…I like taking the guns early…to go to court would have taken a long time…but take the guns first, go through due process second.”
You made a pledge during your State of the Union speech that Socialism would never take hold in America. And we all cheered our strong president, who bravely spoke what was on all of our minds. Well, President Trump, what you just proposed is not only Socialism, it is well on its way to being Totalitarianism…and that, Mr. President, is called treason.
If you choose to ignore this request of the American people, who have supported you all this time, and proceed with your decisions to implement “Red Flag” gun laws, and the appointment of William P. Barr as your next Attorney General, I can promise you beyond the shadow of a doubt, you will immediately feel the backlash of MILLIONS of Liberty loving gun owners in America.
The Left will stop at nothing in their quest to disarm America and we must defeat them, at every turn, starting NOW.
I implore you, President Trump. Please reconsider these ill-advised decisions, and instead, stand firm in your convictions to protect our Second Amendment at all costs. The future of your presidency, our country, and our FREEDOMS are at stake.
An American Patriot
