The time to act is now to preserve our Second Amendment rights. We need to let our lawmakers know we won’t stand for any infringement of the Second Amendment. In Defense of Self Defense is an article written by Andrew Napolitano for reason.com. In it he articulates the need for the right to self-defense. Judge Napolitano wrote.
“In the Orlando tragedy, the man who killed 49 and wounded 53 used a handgun and a rifle. The handgun accepted magazines containing 17 bullets, and the rifle accepted magazines containing 30 bullets. The killer, using both weapons, fired more than 250 times. That means he reloaded his weapons about a dozen times. Each time he reloaded, he stopped shooting, as it is impossible for any person to shoot and reload simultaneously.
We know from forensics that the killer was a poor shot. We can deduce from that knowledge that he was a slow reloader.
One learns to shoot first and reload later. It is likely that it took between three and seven seconds each time he reloaded the handgun and longer with the rifle. In those time periods, any trained person carrying a handgun in that Orlando nightclub could have wounded or killed him—and stopped the slaughter.”
It is time to act now. You can reach your U.S. Representative and Senators by calling 202-224-3121. Contact other gun owners you know to tell them to call. Action is needed now.
