From the Vice President

From an e-mail sent out to the White House e-mail list, from the Vice President, which begins with the sentence:

Taking the oath of office is a serious piece of business.

Put another way, it’s a big ‘effin deal, right Joe? You mean the oath of office which says:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Which refers to the Constitution which says:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

If it’s “a serious piece of business,” why don’t you start the first term actually following your oath, Mr. President and Mr. Vice President?

    Lets step just outside of the gun issue and look at what may be about to happen.. 2nd amendment … Shall not be infringed…when this is taken away from any amendment 1st and the 4th for any one that chooses to legally follow the current laws will also be required to forgo the 4th amendment an any time the government deems necessary. This will also impact the 1st amendment and the right Not Privilege that our constitution provides for it’s citizens.. As a country are we ready to relinquish our rights to the government. Yes there are issues with violence but attacking rights and freedoms is that where our country is headed. It matters not about legal ownership of a gun because a Criminal will find a way to do violence anyway. If we are so worried about people being killed by someone doing something illegal then look at how many current laws were broken in the deaths of 7,680 Persons killed in the 1st 1/4 of 2012. Here in the US not in a war or over seas. Are any of you not willing to fight for the right to Speak in public, or assemble, the right to not have unreasonable search and seizure. A to trial by jury.. All these rights are important to Me as I have fought to defend them and do not wish to relinquish or have them infringed upon none of them. Thank you Sam
