Like all Patriotic Americans, I firmly believe in the first amendment that our founders so well placed in our constitution, but along with this right we must take the responsibility of knowing when and how to use this most sacred privilege.
When our forefathers envisioned a country where its people were free to express their concerns, they did not imagine men and women carrying weapons to political forums or even public places but they saw a nation of people united in a common cause to better themselves by addressing those who oversee our beloved country and since this right was forged with unification in mind, should we not also speak with the same intention? The answer is yes; we should be expressing our views with a peaceful heart; we should stand up if we disagree with our Government, but let us do it with a sense of fellowship and hope! Let us speak our differences with correctness and not with false information that deprives us of common decency! Let us use our God given intelligence to converse our expressions of support or opposition, but perhaps the lack of intelligence is the problem; perhaps we no longer use our intelligence to discover what the truth is.
Yes I said truth because it is truth that is in question here; truth is the essence by which a person is measured; truth is the cornerstone of our world and truth is what every reasonable person craves when he or she petitions our political leaders; truth is what rational people seek when they watch the daily news: truth was in the hearts of our founders when they wrote the first amendment, but those who carry anger in the hearts and guns on their sides are not seeking truth, but they are attempting to bring anarchy to the situation and furthermore those who encourage such actions are just as guilty as those who actually commit such tyranny....
