Statement 1

WE REJECT THE ARGUMENT THAT THE SECOND AMENDMENT GUARANTEES AN INDIVIDUAL RIGHT TO SHOOT AND KILL ELECTED OFFICIALS, LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS, MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS, OR OTHER AGENTS OF THE GOVERNMENT WHEN ONE PERSONALLY CONCLUDES THAT OUR GOVERNMENT IS BEHAVING IN A “TYRANNICAL” MANNER.  This perverted idea is totally out of step with the view of our Founders, who made it clear that the purpose of the Militia is to “suppress insurrections,” not to foment them. The Constitution also defines Treason as “levying war against [the United States], or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.”
