New gun laws may lead to armed rebellion

To the editor:

As we allow our government to slowly undermine our rights and liberties, and when we allow it to finally strip us of our last glimmer of freedom with the stroke of a pen, “we the people” will be forced to rise and regain all that was lost with the stroke of a sword.

Whilst I do not own a military-style “assault weapon,” the legislation regarding them is an attack to undermine the very soul of our country. Should “push come to shove” regarding this issue, I believe that as a free nation, we have a moral obligation to those generations of Americans that are yet unborn to support our heroic fellow Americans who would step forward in defiance of tyranny and who may choose, as William B. Travis once wrote, death before surrender.
