Sacramento, CA — Assemblyman Frank Bigelow, who represents Tuolumne and Calaveras Counties in the California Legislature, says “Revisiting the story of our nation’s independence makes July 4th much more meaningful for me and my family each year.”
In Bigelow’s newest blog he says, “When 56 men signed their names on the Declaration of Independence, they knew that they were risking their “lives, fortunes, and their sacred honor.” They put everything on the line for the principle that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights…” One of those rights is self-defense.”
Bigelow cites several newly proposed laws to restrict firearms and components and notes, “One of the reasons America is the freest nation on earth is because of a historical commitment to limited government. That is why we have the Bill of Rights to ensure that the government respects our most fundamental rights as citizens.”
Bigelow says, “When we enable the government to disarm the law-abiding population, we make it easier for them to undermine our other rights as well.”
