It’s Not About the Guns

Stock Photo of the Consitution of the United States and Feather QuillAs (hopefully) all of you reading this will know, the Second Amendment of The Constitution protects Americans’ rights to have weapons (arms) to defend themselves against a tyrannical, out-of-control  government. Please note that it does not GIVE Americans the right to have weapons. It protects that right, which is “inalienable”, meaning that the right is inherent in human beings by the fact of their existence on earth, as described in the Declaration of Independence. The Amendment is not about having a gun with which to hunt or skeet-shoot, or shoot in competitions of marksmanship. It is about defense against tyranny.

Now, in reality, virtually none of the American citizens have the ability or wherewithal to match the high-tech, high-dollar weapons that the government has at their disposal. None of my neighbors, and I would guess that none of yours, have drones, sound cannons, scud missiles nor bunker-busters. So why defend our right to keep and bear arms? We’re no match for them, anyway.

It’s not about the guns. It’s about the PRINCIPLE that we have the right to live our lives in a way that we choose, with the only restriction being that we harm no one else in the process who does not harm us. If you – as far too many Americans soon will – give up your right to have weapons on the principle that you may defend yourself from tyranny, you will be saying to “TPTB”, “I am your willing slave. Go ahead. Do to me whatever you choose, because I submit to your will, no matter who it does or does not benefit.”

“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446. You’ll be giving up not a piece of metal, but your  desire to be a free, natural human being. More than a right to protect yourself from those who would steal your natural-born rights, you have a responsibility to protect those rights to the best of your ability.

No matter how many grotesque, supremely tragic images of the dangers of the misuse of weapons are paraded in front of us, the missing image is that of a gun that is held to the head of a citizen because he or she has an opposing opinion to that which is approved by an out-of-control government; or the image of guns drawn and blazing to protect adults above the age of majority from consuming raw milk; or allowing the smoke of a cannabis plant into their own lungs; or the arrest of parents who allow their children to play with a foam-wrapped bubble machine with a handle reminiscent of a gun; or the invasion by armed IRS agents of a bottled water plant for documents that were never even asked for prior to the action;  or the steroid-consuming, AR15-toting Forest Service “Police Officer” who declares that his jurisdiction includes any local, county, state or federal law that he decides to enforce.

And no matter how many grotesque, supremely tragic images of the dangers of the misuse of weapons are paraded in front of us, it does not address the base cause of the tragedy itself – mental illness in those who, whether directed to do so by an outside influence or internal glitch, perform the heinous acts of violence. If we spent as much time, energy and funds on recognizing and curing  – not just treating with chemicals that exacerbate the problems – those mental illnesses as we will to try to register guns so that they can later be confiscated more efficiently, the news of these inhumane acts will be curtailed to the point that they will no longer be “common occurrences”.

Under natural law, if we allow our sacred rights to be chipped away we are each as culpable as those who would steal those rights from the decent citizens who are such a threat to “TPTB”’s desire to enslave the masses – or at least those portions of the masses who are allowed to live on. If you still have faith in the governmental system, contact your representatives/senators and let them know that they are doing wrong if they approve or allow the restriction of gun ownership. Do not be complacent in the theft of your right to self-defense or any other right that is being stolen from you.

    i hope you people know that THE LINE IN THE SAND HAS BEEN CROSSED,when some people say when the do this or that were goin to stand up against tranny.
    hate to bust your bubble but if you dont have a group of like minded people a plan and already started prepping i dont see you doing anything but handing over your guns and doing as your told.
    come on the sandy hook story has more holes in that story than swiss cheese,bangazi the pres. got how many people killed and did nothing.how about fast and furious saling guns to drug dealers in mexico how about all the rights youve lost so we are a safer society the u.n telling us what to do and the pres. even saying the only authority to go to war is the u.n not congress.SO SORRY THAT LINE HAS BEEN CROSSED ALONG TIME AGO AND YOU PROBLY DID NOTHING AND SOME EVEN VOTED OBAMA BACK IN,SO TO YOU THAT DOES NOTHING AND BACK OBAMA ANYONE THAT BELIEVES TO GIVE FREEDOM UP FOR SECURITY YOU ARE THE ENEMY AND YOU DESERVE NEITHER

    • GIL

      You think Obama is responsible?

      • OldGuy

        Are you kidding me? Obama is NOT the ONLY one responsible for this assault on the Constitution.
        Even if he is not directly leading the pack of whores doing their damnest to break apart this country, he is doing NOTHING to stop them from trying. By not standing up againt the tyrants he is responsible.

        The Constitution and Bill of Rights are the bedrock of everything this country was supposed to be. The bedrock has been perverted and the core of society is now so brainwashed and corrupted that this country has no future but failure.

        All our elected officials for the past 60 years are to blame for this mess. As the current “leader” of the country for the last 4 years and the next, Obama is directly to blame for all that has and will happen. Every promise that Obama has made since he was elected has been a lie. Every move that Obama has made since elected has been against the Constitution or its principles. Either he is the biggest patsy ever or he is responsible.

        • SKIP

          And it appears to me that the same traitors elected to congress and senate 60 years ago are STILL THERE and STILL BETRAYING our country and us.

    • wolf

      I will not hand in my weapons, friend

      • SKIP

        Anyone that asks us/you to do so is NOT our friend and should be added to the collaborator list.

    Virtually none of the American citizens have the ability or wherewithal to match the high-tech, high-dollar weapons that the government has at their disposal. None of my neighbors, and I would guess that none of yours, have drones, sound cannons, scud missiles nor bunker-busters. So why defend our right to keep and bear arms?
    Well I would like to answer that question with just one fact. With all the advanced weaponry available to the government, why has it taken 10 years to come to a stalemate with a country that is barely out of the 2nd century? The Afghans kicked the Russians ass in a 10 year conflict and now we have successfully fought to a stalemate at the cost of hundreds of billions of dollars and thousands of lives lost to a backassrd bunch of rebels. So I feel fairly confident that all us like minded people who feel we are living in tyranny can be as successful as the Afghans in a war with the government. How many of those soldiers would actually fire on their fellow Americans? No one knows but I bet it won’t be many.

    • GIL

      Its about the opium and lithium.

      The Russians were fighting us in a proxy war. They also didn’t have billions to toss at that war.

      As far as soldiers firing on Americans, if Americans are firing on soldiers I’m pretty sure they will defend themselves. with the drone wars, some of them can auto attack. No human needed

      • OldGuy

        Dude, Americans will not be the first to fire on our military, ever. Over our history as a species it has always been the military or leadership that has made the first move on the populace. Dont believe me, go read a damn book. Oh and drones are only as good as the humans refueling and reloading them. If no one is there to do it they are just yard art.

        If the shit hits the fan and the military and state authorities are told to make a move against the population, the population (or at least some of it) will fight back. I am ex-military and so is most of my family and friends. I hope that the majority of my brothers and sisters in service will NOT take a stand against the Constitution that we all swore to protect and the country that they agreed to serve. I can tell you everyone that I have spoken to in active service has said they will not follow an unlawful order to take action against the American people.

        If they do this country is going to be hell on earth.

    • SKIP

      Cymro, allow me to point out that neither do the Afghans have all of the high tech shit and weapons that the U.S. has and they have fought us to a stand still for the past 11 years are on the cusp of forcing our surrender so stop with the negative waves (to quote Oddball). Keep in mind that all the high tech shit is operated by PEOPLE, people in most cases that have families that we can get to as do the potential military that may be used against us and keep in mind that “THEY” are US!!! in some cases our family members that are not awake.

    “The Vietnam War required us to emphasize the national interest rather than abstract principles. What President Nixon and I tried to do was unnatural. And that is why we didn’t make it.” Henry Kissinger.
    I’ll stick with the wisdom of the Founding Fathers and those abstract principles that Kissinger et al still attack, to this day. Another Kissinger quote, that may hit a little closer to home.
    “Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”
    - Henry Kissinger in an address to the Bilderberger meeting at Evian, France, May 21, 1992.
    We have come to a point, regarding the Constitution, where we use it, or lose it, for the elite are not as wise as that document. All Officers take an Oath that includes a declaration “that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion.” That evasion has turned into an invasion. What happens to an Oath taker, who is not an Oath keeper? Nothing….Start there.

  • jimbo

    Guerrilla warfare is hard to defend against. That said I agree with Cymro. Barbarians took down the Roman Empire which had eroded into a welfare state of loose morals and decadence(sound familiar) and a central government dying of a communist like cancer that overreached its own power to support(deficit). An army runs on its stomach(supply lines). Could we win. I say yes!

    • SKIP

      And another YES to yours, though it will not be a bloodless victory nor a quick one. “Turner Diaries”

  • http://www.republicofflorida.org JoeRepublic

    I agree with the comments above. However, I would like point out a SERIOUS error by the author. Our rights are not inalienable, they are UNALIENABLE.

    UN-A-LIEN-ABLE: basically means you can’t forfeit something even if you wanted to since it is natural and inherent to you, a part of you. We’re born with the rights, they were never granted to us by government. The Constitution is nothing more than a set of restrictions the people put upon the government, understand that.

    Also, please stop mispronouncing unalienable. There is nothing alien about your rights, at all. It is a lien that cannot be applied to your rights, this is critical to comprehend.

    UN A LIEN ABLE, say it with me now.

    • SKIP

      Say this with me…RANGE IT! READY! FIRE!

  • Red Scare

    Well said Mr. JoeRepublic

  • who

    everywhere i turn i hear elected official.. the president, congress, ect,ect ect.. if someone was to really look into it there has not been a people elected official for a very very very long time. They are choosen, selected, placed by those few that hold the money because they will do what they are told to do, and they are given compensation that no average person could even dream of. why is it only the very rich seem to be in public office, then become even richer by 10X by the time they leave that office?. is the president elected by the people or choosen by the electoral college?. why is it a secret ballot that places elected officials in office? If i new what i know now about political careers i would have choosen it as a career and persuaded my children to take that route easiest way to live the high life. but i have a difficult time accepting the concept of doing what i am told to when it hurts others as is the standard for being a politican.
