1st & 2nd Amendments Were Placed at the Top for a Reason
When making a list, the most critical items are placed first. The founding fathers conveyed this in 1791 when ratifying the Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Let's review what the founders deemed as our first 2 most important unalienable rights we are endowed (not given) with as U.S. citizens.
First Amendment: Freedom of Speech & Religion
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
Second Amendment: Right To Bear Arms
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. (What part of "not be infringed" is unclear to our politicians?)
The above 2 rights are concise, clear and unambiguous yet some would like to claim they are outdated and need to be rewritten. We feel they are amazingly relevant and just as important today as they were in 1791.
We wanted to use this post to review the past, learn from our forefathers, and not make the same mistakes others civilizations have made time and time again.

Know your rights, protect your rights and remember that rights are endowed by God our creator the second we are born and never given or bestowed by other men.
