Gun Control and the 2nd Amendment

As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:

“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.”
The Second Amendment is the only amendment to the Constitution with a stated purpose.
  • enabling the people to organize a militia system.
  • participating in law enforcement;
  • deterring tyrannical government;
  • repelling invasion;
  • suppressing insurrection, allegedly including slave revolts;
  • facilitating a natural right of self-defense;


It is important for me to start with the sentences above to express the importance of the true meaning of the words.  If you read the text, you will note that none of it has to do with hunting or sport shooting.  When the Bill of Rights were adopted on Dec 15th, 1791 our founding fathers saw it fit to protect the citizenry and re-establish the “right to bear arms” that was taken away by the King of England. 

It was acknowledged that the right to hunt and fend for your family was a natural right and it was not the argument then, nor is it the argument today.

The battles we endure today are about power.  The government in essence wants to disarm the people thus establishing a false sense of security and full power over the populous.  The talk today is about:

Backround Checks

Waiting periods

Number of rounds in magazine

What makes a gun an “assault rifle

Backround checks and waiting periods or “cool off time” has been on the books and have been working fine but with the recent school shootings and theatre assaults and other instances, our power hungry politicians see another avenue to total gun confiscation.  I watched with amusement that Gov. Cuomo and the President each said identical sentences 1 day apart. “We don’t want to take your guns”.  Yes they do.Obama and the Consitution

Now they have morphed the conversation to how many rounds should be allowed in a magazine and what makes a gun an assault rifle.  Note the progression in the words and how quick they were to “legislate” new laws (within days) of the Newtown massacre.  There are many existing laws on the books that cover all of the recent shootings in place but really were never enforced properly.  Why is that?

Could it be by design?  Every time there is a shooting by some wacko, the government “machine” has an opportunity to enact new stringent laws that chip away at our 2nd amendment rights. 

Ok, try this one on…….don’t you think the government knows that the economy cannot continue the way its going?  Don’t you think that one day the fiscal house of cards will come tumbling down?  And when that happens, there will be chaos and civil unrest when the money stops.  All the folks depending on a government check will hit the streets in protest and an insurrection will ensue.  The government will react with Marshall Law then violence, real violence will occur.   As it is now, the citizens still have a fighting chance to protect themselves, even though it may seem futile against the might and firepower of the strongest most modern military on the planet.  But remember it is not that different than in 1775 when the thirteen colonies went up against the King and the most modern military in the world.  Farmers, businessmen and patriots in rags and unorganized secured a future for this great Nation from tyranny.

“The right to bear arms shall not be infringed”  …….. Do you think that having a bolt action rifle, one bullet at a time, will give you any chance at all against a modern tyranny bolstered with Drones, Jets, Blackhawks and smart bombs?  Or at least have a fighting chance with a 30 round magazine in an AR15.  It is proportional to 1775, is it not?ar15

This government will stop at nothing short of a total gun ban, which is only the beginning to shredding our Great Constitution…what’s next?  1st Amendment?   Wake up folks, be vigilant, ask the hard questions…… remember that the Government works for us.  We don’t work for it.
