Things seem to be changing quickly in this country, and a lot people are fighting hard for whichever political side they are on. However, I choose not to be on any one side because there are things on both sides of the fence that are important to me. One thing I find important is my right to keep my home and family safe. I choose to let people know that by wearing second amendment shirts that I can buy online. I love that wearing shirts with my beliefs on them help to open up a dialogue when I am out in public and people read what my shirts have written on them.
My father always told me that you cannot sit back and hope that our government will handle everything for you. Protests used to be the main way to get your voice heard over the years, but I’m not much on showing up with other people and protesting. Sometimes that works and sometimes it does not. Further, in today’s times, it can be rather dangerous to show up at a protest. Too often, protestors turn on other protestors. Instead, I prefer to contact senators on my own, and I also post on social media because I have a large social media following. The latter helps to start conversations with others, and it helps us to all learn from one another.
The second amendment is important to me because we live in a country where it is not always safe to live without the ability to protect yourself at home. I have cameras and an alarm system installed in our home, but that is not always enough. People break into homes all the time with no trouble at all when they know an alarm system is installed. I feel it is only fair that I have other ways to protect myself, my wife and my children as well if a criminal breaks into my home with a weapon. This is why it is important for me to let other people know what I stand for with the help of wearing t-shirts that announce my interest in upholding my rights.
