Here is the text of my speech from the 2020 @2arallyaz #2aRallyAZ "I am a wife, a mom and a grandma, and I am passionate supporter of our #SecondAmendmentRights to #KeepAndBearArms .
Let’s talk about the Second Amendment. We have come here today to #Celebrate and #Protect this idea, this value, this #GodGivenRight that we call the #2ndAmendment . Do you know that you (and I) have friends and neighbors who don’t even know what 2nd Amendment is? Do you know also that you (and I) have friends and neighbors who have made this idea, this value and this God-Given right a “political” and therefore a divisive “no-no” topic, that can’t even be discussed in “polite company”! I am here today to set the record straight, once again, and as many times as I need to, that the 2nd Amendment, which was written into the #BillOfRights by our #FoundingFathers as a firewall to PROTECT us from Politicians’ power over our lives, is NOT political…it is preciously and uniquely #AMERICAN – and it belongs to EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN – not to a Political Party, or a 3-letter Rights Organization…it is yours, individually---and it is mine…and it is our children’s and our children’s children. UNLESS we allow the Left and the Right to continue to use it as a political football to be kicked around, deflated, and stuffed in the footlocker of historical footnotes.
My fellow #Patriots , as #Stewards of this #InheritanceOfLiberty we MUST prevent that from happening. We must push back on #RightsDeniers like the red-shirted, #Bloomberg -financed “Moms who demand some unnamed action” because WE demand Education NOT Legislation!
Our #Founders promised us one thing…and one thing only…that in order to preserve our #LegacyOfFreedom it would require from us #EternalVigilance . They knew that every day some red-shirted or red-coated #Tyrant would be trying to trick us or outright steal our children’s futures.
In order to protect our children’s futures from these snake-oil salesmen of emotion-laden #GunControl , every one of us must be educated, be informed, and be engaged and #VOTE for #PublicServants who will (not just pay lip-service) but actually defend the #Constitution as though THEIR lives... - 35 minutes ago
