   Second Amendment 

             Rights


There's a Second Amendment ...

    In case the government
  fails to follow the FIRST one.

       

   Gun Control (and) Carry   


         An Armed Society

                       is a

                Polite Society

                   

     Gun Control should be about

           Education

              Not Limitation 


   It is better to be judged by twelve
         ....  than carried by six


    Gun control means
      ...  being able to hit your target.


   When seconds matter ...
   .... the police are only minutes away


   When guns are outlawed

    .... only outlaws will have guns
