Celebrate Bill of Rights Day

From JPFO. Dec 15, 2022

Do you celebrate America's civil holidays? Do you cherish your rights and freedoms as an American? If so, then you will want a special day to remember the foundation for all of them: Bill of Rights Day, December 15.

The Bill of Rights is a major part of the "American way of life." America's civic holidays -- the Birthdays of Washington, Lincoln, and King, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Thanksgiving Day -- all remind us of the special contributions and sacrifices made by our forefathers and leaders to preserve, protect, and extend our freedoms. Each of these civic holidays exists because someone cared enough to fight and die for our rights -- the rights contained in the Bill of Rights.

All rights are important but as many would justly claim, the Second Amendment protects all the others, particularly in this day and age when freedoms are ever more under attack.

We are especially thankful that the Supreme Court reminded the nation in June this year that law-abiding citizens don't have to provide a "good cause" simply to exercise their innate right to bear arms. Sadly, despite this landmark SCOTUS decision, there are still those who would wish to ignore it and continue to infringe on the Second Amendment.
