E.P.A. at it again

In an article today in the Weekly Standard by John McCormack the The E.P.A. is reviewing a request to ban lead bullets, even though they are barred by statute from controlling ammunition. This is yet another attempt to violate our 2nd Amendment Rights. If we lose our second amendment rights, we have lost our first amendment rights. Why is Congress allowing this administration to bypass the legislative branch without so much as a whimper?  We no longer have a balance of power in our government. It is critical that we elect good conservative Republicans this November and stop the advancement of the Obama agenda. This is the only way we can stop this road to socialism, to not allow these mandates to be funded.

It is time to look again at what I wrote in my very first post, quoting from Daniel Webster - "It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." and Thomas Jefferson - “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution."

Our Founding Fathers were very wise men who knew that men in positions of power will most certainly abuse it. That is why the Constitution limits the powers of the federal government. These powers are definitive, and those not specifically enumerated in the Bill of Rights are reserved to the States and to the people in Amendment X.
