The Second Amendment has been under attack in America for decades, thanks to liberal lawmakers and their distorted opinions.
While the original intent of the document was to protect our newly minted nation from a tyrannical government, such as the one that we had just broken free from, modern America’s uses for the right to bear arms is far more versatile. Alongside the protection of our nation’s sovereignty from within, armed Americans have been an enormous deterrent for nations outside of our borders who wish us harm. The sheer amount of firearms in the United States has kept any and all invading armies at bay for well over a century.
Then, of course, we have hunting and home defense; two wonderful collateral effects of the Second Amendment.
Now, one woman in Mississippi who was a staunch opponent of our nation’s original insurance policy has had a sudden change of heart after being faced with a dangerous situation.
“Mississippi resident Lori Shelton says she was ‘always anti-gun’ until she heard noises in her home and found herself eye-to-eye with a home invader.
“Shelton’s horrific experience occurred in April and she is now taking a firearm training course so she will be ready should her home be targeted again. She is also getting her concealed carry permit.
“According to News Channel 3, Shelton said, ‘I was getting ready for work doing my normal routine, and I heard a noise as I was getting out of the shower.’ She looked to see the source of the noise and ‘saw a man coming through the back of the house.’ She said, ‘The first thing I thought was I gotta do something.’ But she was limited on options: her daughter was in bed asleep, her husband was at work, and she did not have a gun.”
Luckily for Shelton, the police were able to intervene and apprehend the intruder, but not before Lori was put at risk.
Like a great many Americans, gun ownership has been vilified by the left through heartbreaking and vile propaganda. By citing the risks to children, accidental discharges, and occasions in which perpetrators commandeer home-based firearms, the left has made gun ownership a terrifying proposition. What many don’t realize, however, is that these incidents are all indicative of an irresponsible gun owner, not random bouts of unlucky circumstance.
