30888048_sLiberals all over this nation have begun to operate as if the second amendment was accidentally included in the Bill Of Rights.

There have been a multitude of objections from the left about our right to carry.

Some have gone so far as to say the founders only included the second amendment in the Bill of Rights so they could bring a militia together in order to put down insurrections opposed to the newly formed republic.

That’s disputable, especially considering the libertarian nature of our founding fathers.

However, what they can’t dispute, no matter what the intent of the founders might have been…is what the framers wrote in the Bill of Rights.

And that is the right “shall not be infringed.”

But why is that so important in a day and age where revolution is barely a viable option for effective change?

Because no matter how they spin it, liberals can’t argue against the fact that the second amendment gives Americans the absolute right to self-protection. Whether that’s against the protection from a tyrannical government, or rogue terrorists and criminals, the second amendment gives us the right, as well as the ability, to protect ourselves.

This was made abundantly clear in a cogent letter written to an anti-gun liberal by a concealed carry permit holder in Massachusetts.

The letter has quickly gone viral, once you read it you’ll know why.

TO THE man I sat next to on my way in to Boston:

When I boarded the commuter rail, you were already in the midst of a spirited phone conversation and didn’t seem to care about how loud you were talking. You were talking with someone about the Paris train attack and the growing epidemic of gun violence in America.

You spoke about the “murderous NRA” and “bloodthirsty gun nuts” who were causing our schools to “run red with blood.” You spoke profanely of the Republicans who opposed President Obama’s call for “sensible gun control,” and you lamented the number of “inbred redneck politicians” who have “infiltrated Capitol Hill.”

I found myself amazed at the irony of the situation. While you were spewing your venom, I sat quietly next to you with my National Rifle Association membership card in my wallet and my 9mm pistol in its holster. You were only 12 inches away from my legally owned semiautomatic pistol. I suppose I didn’t look like the “bloodthirsty gun nut” you thought I should be. It apparently didn’t register to you that I could so cleverly disguise myself by wearing a fleece coat, Patriots hat, and khakis.

So, to the angry liberal who sat next to me on the commuter rail: I don’t hate you. I don’t have any ill feelings toward you. I don’t wish to do you harm. And I don’t regret sitting next to you. On the contrary; I feel bad for you. It must hurt carrying that much hate inside of you.

You obviously have strong opinions about this hot topic. So, let me say this as plainly as I can: If a bad guy with a gun had decided to walk onto that train and start shooting people, I would have been prepared and able to use my gun to defend my own life and the lives of everyone else on that train, including yours. Although you may hate me, a gun owner, I would risk my life for you.

Opinions and ideologies make a pretty thin shield against the bullets of a madman. Your liberal self-righteousness and ignorance may have made you feel superior and comfortable, but during that 40-minute train ride to Boston, my gun kept you safe.

The thought expressed so clearly in this letter is one every single reasonable gun owner in the U.S. can agree with.

To own a gun means you can all but guarantee the ability to respond to the threat of violence. A person with a gun is noting more than a victim. Someone with a gun is free, free to defend themselves, and free because they’re allowed to defend themselves.

This is why we love the second amendment.

Because carrying a gun means we are free, and we love our freedom.

How do you respond to the letter the gentleman wrote?
