An Advanced Placement history textbook used at Guyer High School in Denton, Texas has a brand new 2nd Amendment for students to absorb. Apparently the Founders were all wrong in the edition they added to the Bill of Rights.
Actual 2nd Amendment: “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.”
Textbook version: “The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.”
Obviously not simply a mistake, this goes well beyond being disgraceful. Who does the purchasing of textbooks for Guyer and other schools in Texas? In how many school districts will this dangerous text be found? Dangerous because it’s an obvious attempt to brainwash teens–impressionable kids. And this being an AP text, the attempt is clearly being made against the schools BEST students!

It has taken the global left nearly 2 decades to usher the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) through the friendly confines of the United Nations. Offered for signature in its final form in June, the Treaty which purports to “establish common international standards for regulating the trade in conventional arms,” really is as dangerous to the right of Americans to keep and bear arms as 2nd Amendment supporters have claimed since the Obama Regime–specifically, Hillary Clinton–began the push for the Treaty’s eventual ratification several years ago. (1)
The ATT was deliberately written in broad, general terms throughout most of its text. In this way, the Treaty can generously “reaffirm the sovereign right of any State to regulate and control conventional arms exclusively within its territory, pursuant to its own legal or constitutional system.” (1) Of course this language from the Preamble mentions nothing about keeping or bearing arms, just regulation and control.

“Ideally, handguns, which account for more than half of all homicides in the United States, should be banned completely, but we recognize that this is not currently politically feasible,” wrote Dr. Karl P. Adler in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). (1)
For years the confiscationist left have fought a losing battle in their attempt to repeal the rights of 100 million American gun owners. Even with the benefit of what dedicated gun grabbers undoubtedly considered a God-send–the brutal murder of 20 children in Newtown, Mass–the right to keep and bear arms has been so jealously guarded and the intentions of gun control advocates so mistrusted that no significant legislation could be passed.
For this reason Barack Obama has decided to remove 2nd Amendment rights from the realm of politics and constitutional guarantee by transforming the question of gun violence into an issue of public health.
On January 26th, Obama … Continue Reading:Obama assigns job of gun confiscation to the Centers for Disease Control

If Illinois lawmakers cannot pass a concealed carry law acceptable to the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals by June 9th, the constitutionally prescribed right to keep and bear arms will immediately take effect in the Prairie State. That is, just as codified in the 2nd Amendment, all Illinois gun owners will have the right to bear a weapon, anywhere they wish in the state. (1)
On December 11th of last year, a 3 judge panel from the 7th Circuit ruled Illinois’ near total ban on the carry of firearms unconstitutional. The 47 page decision in Moore v Madigan gave the Illinois legislature 180 days to craft legislation “…consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment as interpreted in this opinion…” (2)
Last week the Illinois House voted 85-30 in favor of a new concealed carry statute which would institute both a “shall issue” provision and … Continue Reading:Time running out for Illinois’ gun grabbing politicians
