THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE

Much of the hype put forth on the upcoming Nov. 8 election is about jobs the economy, illegal immigration and border security. Another aspect may be just as important or even more important. The next president will undoubtedly have the opportunity to appoint two United States Supreme Court Judges. We need jurists on the court and not activists.
I mention this as these choices will generally affect our constitution and specifically the 2nd amendment. An example: On June 28, 2010 the court rules to overturn the Chicago handgun ban as unconstitutional. This case was started by an African-American gentleman who wanted to purchase a handgun to defend himself because he resided in a violet area of the city. The five jurists on the court supported the 2nd amendment and our constitution. The four activists on the court voted against the 2nd amendment and our constitution. The activists are Judge Ginsberg appointed by Bill Clinton, Judge Breyer appointed by Bill Clinton, Judge Stevens appointed by George H.W. Bush, and Judge Sotamayor appointed by President Obama. Since then President Obama has appointed Judge Elena Kagen replacing Judge Stevens who retired. Judge Kagen is a liberal/progressive activist. These activists view our constitution as a barrier to expanding the progressive-liberal-socialist agenda.
This is a wake-up call for firearms owners. Those of you who hunt, shoot skeet and trap, or collect firearms should check carefully who you vote for. These activists view the constitution in general terms and that the 2nd amendment does not grant an individual the right to keep and bear arms. Once we lose our ability to protect and defend ourselves our once cherished and sacred Freedom/Liberty is lost. I only go back to WW2, but, thousands of brave men and women fought for our freedom following WW2, thru Korean, Vietnam, Iraq, and now Afghanistan. They didn't sacrifice their lives so that now our freedom is frittered away. We don't need any more activists on any of our courts that won't protect and defend our constitution. We need jurists that will.
Hillary Clinton has already indicated she is committed to neutralizing the 2nd amendment and will make it one of her top priorities starting her first day in office. She will appoint a liberal/progressive activist to replace the opening created by the death of Antonin Scalia, a true jurist who passed away this past January. After the 2nd amendment is gutted, the first action will be registration. The next step will be confiscation. We've then lost our freedom and right to defend ourselves. After that the only people with firearms will be the military, law enforcements, and the criminals. Check out Australia's firearm control law. Both Obama and Hillary support it.
Donald Trump is supported by the National Rifle Association and has indicated he will support our 2nd amendment and our constitution. He has already submitted a list of 12 jurists that will support and defend our constitution.
I recommend you research all this yourself. I am an independent citizen/voter not beholden to either political party.
