AMAC Supports Bill to Protect 2nd Amendment Rights

2nd Amendment

This bill protects American citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ (ATF) proposed registry for firearms.

Senator from Kansas

The Honorable Andrew Clyde
9th Congressional District of Georgia

Dear Senator Marshall and Representative Clyde,

On behalf of more than 2.2 million members of the Association of Mature American Citizens – AMAC, I write to offer our support for S. 4986 and its House companion, H.R. 9033, the “Stop Harassing Owners of Rifles Today (SHORT) Act.” We applaud you and your cosponsors for hitting this important Constitutional Second Amendment issue head-on. 

Sadly, the political Left, whether in Congress, the Executive Branch, or outside organizations constantly seek to erode our Constitution and Bill of Rights in their strategy to diminish Americans’ Second Amendment rights.

Senator Marshall, as you stated, and with which we fully agree: “The ATF’s federal gun registry is just the latest proof that the Biden Administration has no understanding of firearms and only seeks to limit American citizens’ ability to rightfully own firearms of their choosing. Gun control activists disguised as bureaucrats are corrupting the ATF, and my legislation will put a stop to their extremely misguided and incorrect interpretations of the National Firearms Act (NFA).”

Representative Clyde, you aptly note: “As stewards of the Constitution, Members of Congress cannot allow President Biden to further trample on Americans’ Second Amendment liberties through the continued weaponization of the NFA. By deregulating these NFA firearms, this legislation prohibits the ATF from enacting an unconstitutional pistol ban through a simple rule change — safeguarding the Second Amendment and preventing Americans from being subjected to the Biden Administration’s tyrannical, gun-grabbing tactics. I’m proud to partner with Senator Marshall in leading the fight to protect Americans’ unalienable, constitutional right to keep and bear arms against President Biden’s relentless
attacks on law-abiding gun owners.”

AMAC thanks you, Senator Marshall, and Representative Clyde, for your commitment to the Constitution and strong leadership in introducing this important legislation to protect the Second Amendment.

Thank you for supporting the 2nd amendment. Not only is this a basic right of American citizens, it is just common sense, which most politicians lack. We need leaders with backbone to enforce the law, not take rights away. We lose the 2nd amendment, we lose America.

Do we need a bill to legalize the Constitution? NO, the rights are already there. We just have to take them back. This is stupid. This bill is saying that the second amendment has no efficacy so we need to reinforce it with another bill. Poppy cock!

Thje DemocRats continue to push the concept that guns kill people. But they know they will be laughed out of reality if they try to arrest a gun instead of the user. I am waiting for the DemocRats to seek making automobiles legal since many people die in car accidents. The real main reason behind the push by the DemocRats lies in the reason the “right to bear arms” was put in the Consitution from the outset. The DemocRats want a helpless citizenry for easy control and domini nce. Again, the DemocRats seek to RULE the Nation not just GOVERN the Nation.

Our founders knew first hand about being disarmed. History is so full of examples of how tyrants easily control the defenseless. One example of our systems inability to control the lawless is the regulation of their guns. Only the law-abiding can be controlled with legislation. Registration only points to where the weapons originate and only by law abiding subsequent owners.

The 2ND Amendment solidifies the U.S. CONSTITUTION.
Why do you think the FASCIST liberals want it gone?.
Without the 2ND Amendment there is nothing but TYRANNY.

I have supported law abiding citizen’s right to own and carry firearms since age 10 when my Dad gave me a new .410 shotgun and I was allowed to go bird hunting with him in East TX. He taught myself and my younger brothers firearm safety, to hunt, and fish with him.After 30 years as a sworn deputy sheriff, now retired, my views have not changed, but intensified.Both of my younger brothers, one an M.D., the other a PhD, still own and use firearms.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
