The First Domino


The First Domino

It seems to me that our nation is like a set of dominoes laid out in a line. One big push on the first one, and they all could start falling in succession. Each domino represents the standards or laws that guarantee the identity and function of our nation provided by the constitution. I would like to propose that although it may be the Second Amendment, our right to bear arms is the first domino.

Granted, this observation of mine leaves the Almighty God out of the equation (which is not a wise thing to do because He can do anything He wants), but for the purpose of this conversation, I’ll keep this on the natural level. Let’s just say that unless God intervenes, our right to bear arms could be destroyed or eroded further. That would then open the door for all our other rights to topple as well… dominoes.

Checks and Balances

It is our ability to keep the federal government in check through the Second Amendment (which is a last resort) that protects all our other rights. All the other amendments and their existence hinge upon the Second. Who will defend the right to free speech or assembly or religion if the right to bear arms is taken from us? Who could? Words can be powerful, but in the face of dictatorship, they mean nothing.

Speed is Key

Yes, all our other rights are being attacked in some way, shape, or form. Some are being eroded, but it is a slow process and the damage can be repaired. If the Second Amendment goes however, the process will be faster than we can fathom. We’ll wake up one day and realize our country is not just slightly unfamiliar, it will be unrecognizable.

What to Do

It is our job to recognize the danger, and protect this God-given right. Don’t be paralyzed. When we see people come against our right to bear arms, we need to rise up and let our voices be heard. Contact your federal and state legislators. Donate money to groups you believe in. Stand up……..or the first domino may fall.
