The Legion's 2nd Amendment position, and why disarming will never happen
Every now and again I get a question about the Legion's position on the 2nd Amendment. As with all Amendments and everything in the Constitution: we support it fully. More specifically, our position comes directly from our resolution on the issue, which you can find by CLICKING HERE.
Here are the resolved clauses:
RESOLVED, By The American Legion in National Convention assembled in Indianapolis, Indiana, August 28, 29, 30, 2012, That The American Legion reaffirms its recognition that the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States guarantees each law-abiding American citizen the right to keep and bear arms; and, be it finally RESOLVED,
That the membership of The American Legion urges our nation's lawmakers to recognize, as part of their oaths of office, that the Second Amendment guarantees law-abiding citizens the right to keep and bear the arms of their choice, as do the millions of American veterans who have fought, and continue to fight, to preserve those rights, hereby advise the Congress of the United States and the Executive Department to cease and desist any and all efforts to restrict these rights by any legislation or order.
Pretty simple, that is our position.
Now I received a video from the NRA this week that I wanted to share. I'm not generally one to worry about the Government trying to disarm us en masse and send us to FEMA camps. It's just not happening. And Billy Johnson explains why.
