Standing up for the Second Amendment

Here in Southern Missouri, we appreciate our Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. We understand that the Second Amendment is not only about hunting and it is not just about self-protection. It's an amendment designed by the Founding Fathers for our security--from criminals, from outside invaders, from anyone who would oppress us or take away our liberties. Those who want to take away our liberty to own firearms don't seem to understand. Here's a Springfield TV station's coverage: Gun advocates gather in Ozark for "day of resistance" An excerpt:
Hundreds of people converged in Ozark Saturday to voice concerns about gun control. More than 200 people braved the cold and attended a rally as part of the 2013 Springfield/Ozark Day of Resistance at the Sound of Freedom USA indoor gun range. It was part of 140 other events being held nationwide. ... Vincent Finelli, host of the radio program USA Prepares, was pleased with Saturday's turnout. ... HB 545 is one of the main topics that the rally covered. This bill prohibits any person, corporation, or other entity in the state from manufacturing, importing, possessing, purchasing, selling, or transferring any assault weapon or large capacity magazine, as specified in the bill. Any violation of these provisions is a class C felony. The rally is ended at 2 p.m. Finelli is looking ahead to the Get Prepared Expo next month in Lebanon.
