Arizona Governor Restores 2nd Amendment Rights

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is a champion of her citizens. What an example of what a leader should be in this American Republic. Brewer signed Senate Bill 1108 into law eliminating the requirement for a concealed-carry weapons permit. For the protection of law enforcement officers it does require a citizen to reveal and temporarily turn over any weapons they have concealed if they are stopped by an officer. This is a victory of great magnitude.

"I believe strongly in the individual rights and responsibilities of a free society, and as governor I have pledged a solemn and important oath to protect and defend the Constitution," Brewer said in a news release. "I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well."

I hope this quote is noted in history for all generations to come. Like our founding fathers' quotes we are so blessed to have this quote has a greatness that should never be forgot. In a time when so much of our government is stripping us of our rights faster than we can imagine it bring hope to see that there are those who will stand up for those rights.

We need all of our leaders to follow the examples of those who are truly serving we the people and fulfilling their duty to protect the Constitution. This will not just happen on its own; we must be willing to sacrifice and work hard to put the right people in leadership. We must do our part and vote in every election of every importance from local to federal. Don't ever sit one out and fool yourself into thinking that others will do your duty for you.

I have not read AZ's new law, but it appears to be modeled on Alaska's ... an altogether fine way to go.

That makes three - who's next?
