The mainstream press ceaselessly bullhorns about the perceived dangers of guns. Some firearms (hunting rifles and shotguns) are given a free pass. Other weapons (mostly handguns and black military style rifles) are deemed lethal dangerous weapons, purely by either how they look or how easy they are to conceal. The forefathers of the United States of America came to understand the crucial value of being able to defend oneself by living through the tyrannical rule of King George of England and the assorted hegemonic monarchies of Europe. They bloody well knew what they were talking about when warning of the dangers of dictatorial rule.
The Second Amendment of the Constitution is the second most vital provision our forefathers gave us. A lot of people will tell you that The Second Amendment enforces the First. The Bill of Rights is a formal statement within this nation’s founding document that illustrates our inalienable rights–rights that are bestowed upon us by our Creator. If you’re religious, Creator can mean God. If not, Creator can mean Nature. Whatever you believe, that isn’t the point. The point is this: These rights can not be taken away from you. They belong to all of us.
Fear’s foundation is the unknown. Virtually all individuals who believe in gun control or abolishing the Second Amendment have never held a gun in their hand, let alone operated one. The very fear of that unknown experience–using a firearm either for recreation or defense–provides a growth medium for the hubris that permeates the Anti Second Amendment Movement. The creators of our Constitution knew the hand of Tyranny, they didn’t live in fear (read: the unknown), they took action. They put their lives in jeopardy so that we could have the arrogance of considering to lose the security that very right provides.
A shrewd enemy attacks where and when you least expect it. When is the last time you envisioned your government attacking you? When was the last time you thought of your country turning into a dictatorship? And if your country did choose by way of corrupt control to switch backwards in time to a primeval monarchy, what power would you have to reverse that outcome if you didn’t have a weapon?
Currently America has several bans in place to restrict access of law of abiding citizens from various weapons. In order to rightfully protect a household or a nation being taken over by hostile forces, one would have to be properly armed. Legal restrictions, passed under the guise of “public safety measures,” put the squeeze on this ability. In effect, these laws restrict your inalienable right to defend yourself.
Some citizens have allowed their government to completely abolish this right, while the criminals in their respective nations have unlimited access to firearms. So those who use these weapons in a rare but urgent scenario to lawfully protect themselves, are now 100% at the mercy of those who routinely use these weapons to control and dominate the individual into submission. These societies have been effectively neutered.
The politicians of the world and their controllers–the bankers, and their controllers–the ruling few, have demonstrated a complete disregard for your sovereignty, your right to own your land and to conduct your life as you see fit. Giving up guns removes the last barrier to their total and complete control over you.
What will you use to get your rights back after they’re all gone?
A strongly worded resolution voicing your disdain?
Or what has always worked since the first foundries lit their furnaces?
