One of the biggest challenges facing our country is the erosion and constant assault of our basic freedoms. Without that foundation, laid out by our founding documents, all other challenges are mere nails in the coffin of a great country. We have slowly given away civil liberties and individual privacy through legislation such as the Patriot Act and NDAA. The siege on the second amendment facilitated by media agenda, fear, and emotion has reached a new fervor in light of recent shooting events at the Century movie theater in Aurora, Colorado; Clackamas Town Center near Happy Valley, Oregon; and Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut. Every law abiding gun owner in this country grieves at the unnecessary and senseless loss of life by these tragedies. That said, every American should grieve at the threat of loosing yet another right guaranteed by the second amendment of the Constitution: the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Our elected officials were sent to Washington to represent the people and to carry out the people's business. In pursuit of that endeavor, they take an oath of office "to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God". That said, now is the time to pray for our elected officials local, state, and federal and provide the encouragement to do the right thing during difficult times.

Thankfully, on 27 April 1995, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) spoke out in defense of the second amendment while testifying on the topic of terrorism during the US Senate hearing held shortly after the tragic Oklahoma City bombing.
During that hearing, she referenced the importance of a concealed carry permit. She had obtained a permit and training to carry a personal defense gun during the 1970's citing the need to protect herself from threats stating: "I know the sense of helplessness that people feel. I know the urge to arm yourself, because that's what I did. I was trained in firearms. I walked to the hospital when my husband was sick. I carried a concealed weapon and I made the determination if somebody was going to try and take me out, I was going to take them with me."

I would argue, while physical firearm ownership is important, the real importance is the freedom and liberty that gun ownership represents as outlined in the Constitution. Please take time to pen a letter in your own handwriting to express your thoughts on the second amendment. Please remember, that our elected officials work for us, and to do their job effectively, they need to hear your voice. If they do not represent the people's will, than it is truly our own fault, for not only electing them in the first, but also for failing to provide the voice they need.
