Government overstepping bounds: Our inalienable rights are being taken away

Originally published in the Fullerton College Hornet, Vol. 78, Issue 17; 3 Mar 1999

“A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

These 26 words have helped safeguard the citizens of this country and kept us from becoming subjects in a dictatorship many times over the last 200 years.

Those same words are in jeopardy from a government that is threatened by the people’s knowledge of their rights.
