Day January 19th – 2013 Regular Regular Lesgilative Session 6

The 2nd Amendment Rally was awesome and really well attended. Here’s my speech …

Good afternoon and welcome to your state capitol. Ladies and gentlemen, we are facing dark times and now is the time for each and every one of us to stand strong to uphold the Constitution of the United States. The tragedies in Colorado, Oregon and Connecticut, and make no mistake these were major tragedies, were perpetrated by bad people, bent on harming good people. Guns don’t harm people, people harm people and no amount of gun laws, gun bans or gun registration will ever stop individuals wishing to harm others. We cannot allow government to use these tragedies to infringe upon our 2nd Amendment rights to keep and bear arms.

In the Declaration of Independence, our Founding Fathers declared that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights. There are two very important points in the Declaration. First, our Founding Fathers acknowledged that these rights came from God, not the Government. Government did not grant these rights and they certainly cannot take them away.

Second, the Founders used the word”unalienable” which means, not to be separated, given away, or taken away. The right to keep and bear arms is not a suggestion. It is not qualified with”unless the government says otherwise.” It is very clear, we have the God given, unalienable right to keep and bear arms.

We have already seen actions that threaten our 2nd Amendment rights and in the coming days and weeks, we will see proposals at the National and State level that will continue the assault on these rights. We all must be ready and stand in support of our rights, we must educate our friends and neighbors when these threats arise and we all must be willing to speak loudly in defense of our rights.

In the next few days, we will be introducing legislation that protects our 2nd Amendment Rights. The Firearms Freedom Act includes a provision declaring”any federal law, rule, regulation, or order attempting to ban or register semi-automatic firearms or any firearm magazine unenforceable in Washington State.

Folks, join me today in telling the government this is our line in the sand and that we will not go quietly into the night.
Join me in telling the government”you will not tread on me.”

Thank you for spending your Saturday defending freedom. God Bless all of you, God Bless Washington State and God Bless America.
