The 2nd Amendment is the most fundamental right that we have in America. Our countries founders were very specific in writing the Constitution, and they made sure our right to “bear arms” was in the document. At the time the Constitution was written, the patriots were in the midst of fighting a tyrannical government, and without their rifles, and muskets, the Revolution would never have taken place. That is how America came to be.
The democrats know that the 2nd amendment is a right, and it is something they have tried and tried again to overturn. They use every opportunity known to man to attempt to take our guns; However, there are some states that still recognize your Constitutional right to defend your life against extremism.
In West Virginia, their liberal governor vetoed a bill that would allow residents of the state to carry a firearm without going through an onerous vetting process but Republicans have pushed back and overridden the veto.
Well, it’s happened. West Virginia became the eighth state to adopt constitutional carry. One in ten residents already have a concealed carry permit, and the new measures signal another victory for Second Amendment rights. Democratic Gov. Early Ray Tomblin vetoed the measure back in March, but the state legislature—with bipartisan support—overrode it. Yet, while permitless carry is now law, it also stiffens penalties for those who violate current gun statutes, like those that were mentally adjudicated, guilty of domestic abuse, and convicted felons—all of which are barred from owning firearms (via Herald-Dispatch)
More than 1 in 10 West Virginia adults has a permit to carry a concealed handgun, and the number of Mountain State residents carrying weapons is likely to increase with the new law that took effect this week.As of May 24, a new permitless carry law allows West Virginians to carry firearms freely without going through a safety course or having to obtain permits, so long as they meet certain requirements. The trend is another sign that Americans are feeling more comfortable about owning guns. According to a Gallup survey published in 2014, more than six in 10 Americans believed guns make homes safer, almost flipping from public perception in 2000. In 2000, 35 percent said guns made homes safer, while 51 percent said it made a home less safe.
It’s nice to see that there are people out there who are willing to fight for fundamental Constitutional rights.
Democrats like to pretend that they have no intention of banning guns yet they turn around and praise countries like Australia who actually confiscated guns. Well hate to break it to the democrats, but we have every right to carry guns. We will not go down without a fight.
