Why I Support the 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.1

Utah’s Constitution also supports the Second Amendment2.

I realize it isn’t popular to introduce shocking news but according to the University of Hawaii, in the 20th Century alone 262 million humans were murdered by their own governments—see 20th-Century Democide. In most cases these atrocities were committed after government disarmed their citizens.

Every man and woman has the right bear arms to defend themselves, their family and their property. Having recently defeated the most powerful army in the world3, the Founding Fathers declared with firm conviction that this right shall not be infringed.

Let’s thank Congressman Jason Chaffetz for his six years of public service and release him so he can serve his country in another capacity. Vote Robert Stevens for Congress. Let me show you what I can do.

1 U.S. Constitution, Second Amendment

2 Utah’s Constitution Article I, Section 6. [Right to bear arms.] The individual right of the people to keep and bear arms for security and defense of self, family, others, property, or the state, as well as for other lawful purposes shall not be infringed; but nothing herein shall prevent the Legislature from defining the lawful use of arms.

3Compromised mostly of untrained citizens who often brought their own guns and ammunition, the Continental Army lost most of their battles but eventually won the war. It is worth noting that survivors, including General Washington recorded they witnessed on many occasions the guidance of divine Providence.
