2nd Amendment

At Centennial Gun Club, we believe that the right to keep and bear arms is an inalienable, God-given right to self defense.  This right is not afforded by the Second Amendment, but in fact the Second Amendment exists to protect this right.

;

HB 1292 - Passes House 35-27

 

This is the anti-gun politicians’ latest attempt at an “assault weapons” ban. If passed, it would ban almost every semi-automatic centerfire handgun, rifle, and shotgun that accepts a magazine. It passed 7-3 in the House Judiciary Committee on March 19th. It passed 35-27 in the House on April 14th. We strongly encourage our community to contact their state representatives to let them know you oppose this bill.

Take Action:

“Shall Not Be Infringed”

This right does not end at our front door.  The Constitution protects our right to keep and bear arms whether inside or outside the home.  This right has been eroded in several states (including ours) and was actually reaffirmed by the Supreme Court in June of 2022.  Carrying a firearm outside the home is a Constitutionally protected right.

Importantly, the Second Amendment does not allow for provisions that restrict the type of firearm, nor its ammunition capacity, that we as civilians may own.  These restrictions weaken our ability to defend ourselves and leave us less equipped against our aggressors, criminal or tyrannical government.

“A Government For the People, By the People”

Our Founding Fathers correctly acted to create a balance of power for our government in an effort to protect our fundamental, inalienable rights.  Our forefathers predicted, as history often repeats itself, that an overreaching government would look for ways to shift that balance of power away from The People.  The Second Amendment was put in place to protect that balance, and to ensure The People are always empowered to protect their life and liberty from any individual or government that would act to take it away. 

Gun control cheaply veiled under the guise of “safety” has the aim of shifting power away from us as individuals.  It leaves the individual dependent on the State which does not have the ability to protect us when needed, and more broadly shifts that power to criminals and our government.  That is not safe.

Aiming to Empower You

We at Centennial Gun Club are here to empower you.  Our purpose is to bring you the training, tools, and knowledge that will carry you through life with peace of mind.  We want you to have the ability to protect yourself, your loved ones, and the innocent.  It is your God-given, inalienable right.  

It is also our responsibility to protect our Second Amendment.  All of us need to be in this fight together.  We need to educate ourselves on the issues, vote to protect our rights, and when we can, donate to Second Amendment advocates.  Don’t be afraid to share the facts about firearms with those who will listen… better yet, bring them shooting.  Removing fear and replacing it with knowledge almost always opens the door to understanding.

Q

HB24-1174
