Constitutional rights are in danger

“December 7, 1941, a date that will live in infamy …” We recently marked the 74th anniversary of the American entry into World War II. A day of terror in Hawaii and the beginning of the end of innocence for the generation born after the war to end all wars. After a world conflict which spawned colossal battles, which saw the development of immense new technology and when man was urged to never again repeat that horrible process – war and terror seem to always stay with us.

From Korea to West Berlin, an enemy of free men always appeared.

Now, the Twin Towers tragedy gave way to the Paris attack and now another, back in America, with married Muslims attacking in San Bernadino, Calif., and with terrorists still on our doorstep, Obama and the rest of the liberal Democrats scream that the answer to terror is more gun control and more political correctness so we don’t offend Islam.

We are witnessing American leadership go crazy.

We can only hope, and dare I say, pray, our children will become a second greatest generation, one that can mirror those of yesterday. The future of America as we know it may depend on what we instilled in those young minds. What a difficult legacy we leave to our kids to figure out.

On Black Friday, there was a record-breaking number of NICS background checks, over 185,000, of people who wanted to buy a gun, and that was five days prior to the second-largest terror attack by Muslim extremists in these United States.

Now the liberals want to use the no-fly list as a guide for background checks. Guess what? The terrorists who killed Americans both then and now flew here. Buy a one-way ticket and you will be put on that watch list. And the gun show loophole – not in New York of course – is known as the Second Amendment to our U.S. Constitution.

Americans can legally buy and sell guns among themselves – except in about a dozen liberal states, which includes New York. If you want to sell your gun – except here in New York – you can do it. That is the “gun show loophole.”

Liberals really do want to disarm Americans. Our Constitutional rights are in harm’s way. It’s now a privilege at most.
