This is the first of a three part post, an installment each week for the next three weeks.  It was originally posted in its entirety at Common Sense Conversation and is reposted here in serial form by its author.  It is the author’s sincere belief that we citizens of the United States are about to lose this country, at least as far as we (think) we know it as the freest country on the planet…and that once lost, it will be impossible to recover.

Text of the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

The Constitution in Peril

The Constitution in Peril (Photo credit: Renegade98)

The Second Amendment, as ratified by the States, reads: 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.

The hand-written copy of the Bill of Rights as passed by the house and Senate and which hangs in the National Archives, had slightly different capitalization and punctuation inserted by William Lambert, the scribe who prepared it. This copy reads: 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.

Both versions are commonly used by “official” Government publications. (Emphasis added by author)

The Sandy Hook school shooting has ignited, once again, the debate over gun control.  Before looking at the merits of different sides in the debate, let’s define just who the players are in the discussion, as there are really three sides, not two, involved.

Next week…the players

Coming soon…”Rules for (Conservative) Radicals”…Saul Alinskys rules, leavened with some  ethics.  Alinsky was a genius, but an evil one.  His rules for accomplishing change work, and with the ethics he lacked added in his rules can be a blueprint for conservatives…real, constitutional conservatives, not the trash that populates the current GOP.
