At a time when some gun control advocates appear intent on painting lawful gun ownership as a danger to society, and the Second Amendment as little more than an outdated protection of a person’s right to hunt, it’s important to remember the regular role armed citizens play in defending inalienable rights.
Far too often, those who disagree with supporters of the Second Amendment and firearm-related policies resort to assertions that we simply care more about our guns than about the lives of innocent people, and that the right to keep and bear arms has little beneficial purpose in modern America. This makes it all the more critical that we continue to emphasize the important role lawful gun owners play as an immediate and regular defense against crime. As we enter 2020, lawmakers in several states are gearing up for high-profile fights over gun control legislation that could severely limit the Second Amendment rights of many law-abiding citizens.

They respond to calls of those who are already in peril, or to a crime scene after the offense has occurred.

His parachute was apparently deployed too early and shortly after the rocket plummeted to the ground nearby. He was a follower of the Flat Earth nonsense. What I learned from this story is that a rocket scientist and rocket daredevil are not the same thing. I also know that the earth is still in the shape of a globe but regretfully, Mad Mike is now flat.
