I’ve always held a position of respect and gratitude to our service men and women. Hero’s of the ages defending the ideas and concepts of humanitarianism throughout the world. I might not have always agreed with the orders from politicians that they have been asked to carry out, but I’ve always had faith that they would do everything asked of them with excellence and skill.
It wasn’t until the military became personal to me, however, that I was able to identify why I’ve always been so bothered by the disconnection of those that support the 2nd Amendment in defense of the interpretation that the founding fathers wanted citizens to be able to bear arms in the event that the government became corrupt and the citizens would need to revolt.
What this implies is that these supporters of this interpretation are arming themselves to fight against our military.
That means arming yourselves against my niece, her friends, and thousands of other brave men and women that have given their lives to protect us.
It’s laughable to think any citizen militia could overthrow our military, especially after witnessing the rigors of boot camp and the intense training our Marines and other branches of the military go through long after boot camp. Our military is a well oiled machine made up of the strongest stuff our citizens could offer.
I have confidence in those that have undergone such rigorous training to bear arms to do the right thing in handling weapons such as machine guns, automatic weapons, grenades and bombs.
If you want the right to bear those types of arms then you should join the military so that you have the knowledge and discipline to hold such great responsibility in your hands.
So the next time some one says they are defending our freedom by demanding that you have the right to form a militia against our government, know that you are disrespecting our military and think you are better than them.
You don’t stand a chance against these soldiers and you haven’t earned the right to hold the lives of others in your undisciplined trigger happy hands.
I am proud of our men and women in the armed forces. Thank you for your service.
