DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO POSSESS A FIREARM
DO YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO POSSESS A FIREARM?
IN MY OPINION: By W.T. RoadBlock Harrell

The answer is yes. The Constitution guarantees you the right to possess firearms, and the Supreme Court has repeatedly upheld your right. However, specialized units of law enforcement consistently ignore this Constitutional guarantee. Day or night, if a SWAT team invades your home and you are holding a weapon, you will most likely be shot dead immediately.
As you lay there bleeding out, you hear your kids crying and begging for you as the cops handcuff your wife, shoot your dogs, and ransack your home.
I wonder just how many innocent Americans have died this way since President Nixon signed his “No Knock” search warrant policy into law in 1970. Nixon said this would be a powerful tool for police to use in America’s War on Drugs.
I also wonder if Nixon had any idea these no-knock warrants would one day be served by militarized SWAT teams dressed for combat and armed with the weapons and vehicles used against our enemies in foreign nations.
The Government claims that a large number of those killed are drug dealers and criminals. The problem with their claim is that every American citizen is innocent until proven guilty by a court of law. Being killed by SWAT has no semblance to a guilty verdict by a jury of the victim’s peers.
Today’s militarized SWAT teams are specifically trained for hostage and terrorist situations. They are trained by the military to approach every job and person as an enemy, not a citizen with rights. Why is SWAT performing routine police duties instead of leaving it to the police officers who are trained to handle citizens in a constitutional manner?
One of the most important Constitutional rights all citizens have is “Equal Protection under the Law.” This means everyone must be treated equally no matter what race, political bent, employment and financial status, or organizations you may belong to.
The highest courts in this nation agree that every citizen is entitled to the constitutional rights listed below.
(1.) A right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
(2.) A right to possess a firearm.
(3.) Is innocent until proven guilty.
(4.) Is entitled to “Equal protection under the law.
(5.) And is entitled to “Due Process”
How can SWAT members walk away free after summarily executing American citizens? In 2014 there were over 80,000 SWAT raids, and over 1,000 Americans killed by cops.
It’s time for American citizens wake up and start using the tools our forefathers put in place in 1787 to stop this government’s abusive unlawful acts. Join me today in the fight for every American citizen’s constitutional rights.
