2nd Amendment and Guns

April 09, 1993

The ATF has yet to justify its actions in Waco, Tex. I am no supporter of the Davidians. Yet, with the standoff lasting weeks, no detailed explanation has been given by the ATF concerning why they were there.

The Second Amendment is in place to protect the population from the government in power, not from foreign invaders. The ATF claims the justification of a warrant, yet no one has seen or heard the justification for that warrant.

Texas gun laws differ from California laws. If the cult members committed no crime, posed no threat and were guilty of nothing other than upsetting some local authorities, this does not bode well for the future. Press the ATF for details concerning their reasons for a warrant. The U.S. is changing and, according to the Constitution, it may not be for the better.
