Are Gun Totin' Mama's The Way Of The Future?

In the heels of our country's unrest over the last two years, the citizens voices are being heard. The fear of our Constitutional Rights being taken away by big government has made States take action to ensure our Rights are not infringed upon. States are returning the Right to Bear Arms to the integrity of their citizens. 

"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."
Constitutional Carry is the right to carry a concealed gun with no special license, permit or fee issued by a state. A victory for the Restoration of our Constitution was won in Wyoming last week Gov. Matt Mead (R-Wy) became the fourth state to enact this legislation on Mar. 3, 2011. Last April Gov. Jan Brewer (R-Az) signed the same legislation in Arizona. They joined Alaska and Vermont in adopting Constitutional Carry. Colorado, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Utah, Kentucky and Idaho have similar proposals.

The right to bear arms and protect oneself and state without the interference of government is our Constitutional Right. The Freedom to carry is our right as citizens of the United States of America. It is our right to defend ourselves, our homes and our Country if attacked.
"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them." (Richard Henry Lee, Virginia delegate to the Continental Congress, initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights.)

Many States still feel the need to control who owns a gun and who can carry a concealed weapon. The laws in themselves are good and are meant to protect the citizens. If the laws are upheld by the citizens and not abused by the government they are good. I do not believe the Federal Government has the right to make a federal registry of every gun owner and gun in this Country. They most certainly do not have the authority to TAKE OUR GUNS AWAY. Many people should not be allowed to carry a weapon as they may have the intention to do bodily harm on themselves or others, this is the main problem of gun control. How do we stereotype to keep guns out of the hands of criminals?
 It is not the guns that kill, it is the person who pulls the trigger that kill.

"Constitution shall never be construed . . . to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."   ~ Samuel Adams ~

In today's society many people hear of a gun killing and panic, then say they hate guns and all guns should be banned from civilian use, this is totally a Socialistic attitude. That is such a crock...A gun in your hand could save the life of you or a loved one.

We are seeing the sales of guns to women increasing drastically, 
they are forming groups and learning the necessary skills and laws to handle them properly. With so many criminals on the streets a person needs to be able to defend themselves. The honest person needs to be one step ahead of the criminal. Young and old, men and women are feeling the need to protect themselves and are doing something about it. Go for it women protect yourself and your loved ones. Join one of the Gun Toting Mama's groups and participate in their classes and competition.

Switzerland has a unique policy, in that they encourage everyone to own a gun, they have programs to teach every citizen the responsibility of gun ownership marksmanship. They have the lowest crime rate in the world and most of the crimes committed in that country are by non-citizen foreigners. Young people are taught the respect of guns at an early age and participate in shooting contests. Shooting is a national sport to them. 

"The great object is that every man be armed . . . 
Everyone who is able may have a gun." ~ Patrick Henry ~ 

While the Constitutional Carry Law is a victory for the Freedom of our citizens, I also believe we need some form of gun control and insurance that new gun owners have the knowledge, respect and responsibility to own a gun. 
It is indeed a privilege to live in this Country and to be able to own a hand gun. Unfortunately it is the people who abuse the privileges bestowed upon us by our 
Founding Fathers that we have to have some form of gun control.
