Ladies and Gentleman: The Second Amendment

Before any serious discussion about the Second Amendment can begin, it is necessary to make sure those discussing its validity, definition and application really understand why it was written and how it applies to modern society.

Today, most politicians do not understand the Second Amendment or refuse to award it its real meaning. They refuse to recognized what the Founding Fathers intended to achieve and instead attach all kinds of connotations originated from their twisted and purposely wrong understanding of the this sacred right.

Two grave mistakes are commonly made when defining, validating and applying the Second Amendment. First, people attempt to interpret what it means, as opposed to simply reading and abiding by it. Second, it is defined, validated and applied according to ‘modern’ precepts issued by government.

Perhaps the best attempt to understand what the Second Amendment means in its raw form was recently presented by journalist Ben Swann, who limited himself to reading the text and, upon consulting constitutional experts and proper dictionary definitions, made a very good case for the correct understanding of what the Second Amendment really means.

The definition held by those who believe in the right of the people to keep and bear arms and what it intends to guard against — the very same definition now being diluted by government enforcing illegal laws and the media pushing for gun control — is simpler than what many pundits and talking heads want to make it look.

The Second Amendment was not created to be conditioned to the kind of weapons that people may have available to buy or whatever the federal government thinks are ideal social situations for people to own a gun. It is also not limited by the mental health of a society or the vote of a group of people who are so afraid of armed lunatics, that they prefer to be killed rather than protect themselves and their families.

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.”

After being victims of foreign aggressors, the Founding Fathers and the United States as a whole understood very well that an armed population, not only a standing army, was the best instrument to keep the country safe from both domestic and foreign attacks. That is why the responsibility to defend oneself was put in the hands of The People.

A number of countries whose armies were swept by oppressors and whose populations fell into the hands of local and foreign conquerors are historically significant. Meanwhile, quite the opposite happened with those nations whose people maintained the right to keep and bear arms. The statistics clearly show a direct link between free, armed populations and lower crime rates. On the contrary, subdued, unarmed people are most often subjected to violence from criminals in and out of government.

Governments alone are responsible for the murder of at least 250,000,000 people in the twentieth century and most of the people who were murdered were either lightly armed in comparison to their aggressors or completely disarmed. If the security of a free State — and such state is indeed composed by its citizens because that State is an independent Nation, depends upon its people — it is then the responsibility and the right of those people to keep and bear arms against all threats.

Therefore, the Second Amendment is not about hunting or the ownership of a specific caliber firearm, but about the ability of the people to be armed as needed to defend themselves from standing armies; both foreign and domestic. It is as simple as that. The people have the right, under applicable laws, to own and use firearms of undetermined calibers, sizes or firepower, to defend themselves, their families and their country.

There can’t be a better time to put that right to work than today, when average criminals, mentally ill people and the government itself pose the greatest danger to the security of the people than ever before in history. For those who understand the meaning of the Second Amendment, it is clear that the full conquest of the United States will not occur unless its people are completely disarmed.

The globalists who control the American government have financially and politically disarmed the country, but they haven’t been able to break the will of the people to defend themselves. Americans are beginning to understand that their government cannot protect them and will not protect them, because government  doesn’t work for them.

Politicians who move to Washington, D.C., work for foreign interests whose goal is to destroy the United States the same way they’ve destroyed countries in Latin America, Africa and Europe. That is why, when studied from a legal standpoint — the only point of view it should be studied from — the Second Amendment explicitly enables Americans to defend their country as well as to defend themselves from their country if necessary.

The Second Amendment was intended to guarantee the right of the individuals to be equally armed as their country’s military, both to aid the military to defend the country from foreign threats, as well as to defend themselves from the Nation’s military forces, should they turn against The People. The Founding Fathers intended to provide the citizens the ability to be armed well enough to keep their country and themselves free from oppressive forces which could arise internally and externally.

The idea that a semi automatic firearm should not be in the hands of average folks could not be more opposed to the right provided by the Second Amendment, since governments’ firepower has increased exponentially. What kind of self-defense action could an individual sustain with a .22 caliber gun if its government has sound canyons, armed drones and laser beam weapons? In fact, a semi-automatic or even an automatic weapon would be useless.

The next step on the road to serfdom after a population is disarmed is anything and everything that those in places of power believe is enough to keep themselves in power. “You can do all kinds of things when the population is disarmed. You can round them up, you can put them in ghettos, you can execute them, you can do all kinds of things,” says attorney Don Moore.

There is nothing controversial about the Second Amendment and what it means. Controversy arises from those whose power slips away when The People reclaim the rights given to them by their creator, which directly challenge the abusive behavior of corrupted individuals who use government to enslave his fellow citizens.

An honest debate about the Second Amendment will only be effective when those who participate in such a debate do so with full understanding of what they are talking about. The Second Amendment is intended to prevent the control, domination and oppression of the people by the government. Any discussion that starts without recognizing this fact will not only be futile, but also dangerous given the ignorance of the people who are charged with defending its very existence.

No matter what Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama, or Pierce Morgan say, firearms don’t kill people. Crazy individuals using firearms murder people just as mad individuals use the power vested upon them by their fellow citizens to murder thousands of innocent civilians in a supposed attempt to ‘bring peace’ to their countries.

As foreign as it may seem for Americans or any other population whose governments want them to hand in their guns, the consequences of centralizing government power and disarming citizens are the predecessors of Genocide.

    Hand in our weapons? We will not!

  • blah

    Shall not be *Infringed*. Key word there.

  • TIME

    Thank you for a well presented blog.

    My Dear friends we are at the door, thus now our job is to open it and wake the vast amount of sheep from their “PRE ~ PROGRAMMING” / “INDOCTRINATION” of pure and utter stupidity. Saddly that’s been visited on us from both the Mass Media as well the Political class for years now, by way of both ~ “covert and overt propaganda.”

    Its time that the American people look at all the pernicious laws as well the behavior of the political class and mass media for whats their true agenda is.
    The total “ENSLAVEMENT” of the American people.

    The American people must stop with their feckless act’s of ignorance and learn what is TRUTH.

    Then not only stand up for what is a Higher Standard of Moral Value, but also to take back the granted Freedoms that the founders not only fought for. But also what all Free persons should enjoy, FREEDOM from intrusive leaders of all kinds.

    Infact the very nature of what the Founders of this nation were able to see with clearity that saddly todays population has lost sight of by way of the mass of worthless rhetoric dispenced by spin doctors for effect of expanding powers within a small core group.

    No Free Man can stand – when only the RULERS have the ability to enforce a their MORAL code, of what I am quite sure no FREE MAN would find within their Moral value system when viewed by history’s past endeavors into this form of abyss. Think the Nazi’s and what befell the Jewish people of Europe during that TIME period, let alone the countless Hundreds of millions who have faced like forms of Rule.

    As this nation has no longer a Moral Compass within its leadship, its TIME for the American people to take back the power that the political class by way of Bankers / The FED have stolen from them and their children.
    On just the $16 Trillion dollar debt in man hours of work based on a #20.00 per hour base rate it will take 47,000 years just to pay off that debt.

    That in straight talk makes the American people “Indentured Servants” to the political class’s whos reckless spending and behavior have created this very chaotic state.

    Thus if these criminals take away the American people’s only form of defence against what is rounding out to be a “Dictatorship”
    This once great neation will slip beneath the waves of history as a total failure to understand or hold onto “FREEDOM” that a Sovereign nation and people should enjoy.

    How sad is that?

    The only way a “Marxist Police State” can exist is if the people have no way to fight back, No weapons of near equal value, as well NO FREE SPEECH. **note both of these granted Freedoms / Rights are under heavy attack at this point in TIME.

    There is no more TIME to waste its now TIME to take back your RIGHTS Your FREEDOMS, your Nation.

    There will be NO rematch, nor will you be able to revisit the damage done at a later date to address all these wrongs perpetrated on the last vestige of a FREE PEOPLE in the world. This is it people, this is not a GAME, this is the real deal.

    Peace and Love, Shalom

    Do tell where it says the people are free to attack and kill politicians without retaliation? Had the American Revolution failed and George Washington captures and sent to England then he would’ve been hung, drawn and quartered for high treason. If a group of people start shooting at politicians citing Thomas Jefferson they will still be treated as domestic terrorists.

    • Barry

      Unless they win. And isn’t that the whole point?

      • SKIP

        And when the SHTF and if we citizens loose, most of us will not want to live in what is left anyway.

      Right you are bbut we intend to win and their “gated communities” will not save them from the pitchforks, torches, AKs and M4s

  • Douglas

    I submit that all Federal laws which restrict the type of weapons owned by law-abiding citizens (whether full-auto-capable, burst-mode, semi-auto, magazine capacity, ability to be fitted with a bayonet or silencer, caliber, barrel length, overall weapon length, and rate of fire ALL contravene the literal wording of the Second Amendment: to KEEP and BEAR arms shall not be INFRINGED. If the framers had intended that the ordinary citizen HAD to be less armed than an individual US Soldier or civilian law enforcement officer, this would have been spelled out. In fact, in both the then-recent Revolutionary War and subsequent uprisings in the several states (re: Shay’s rebellion), the average citizen typically had a musket or a pistol that was as good as either the regulars that they either fought along side or went up against. Some may argue that the founders never envisioned submachine guns or “assault” rifles. Right. They never also foresaw the telegraph, the telephone, radio, TV, computers, the Internet, satellites, etc., and the same crown that bleats for gun controls gets into a pink hissyfit whenever there’s a call to not partake of their filth foisted upon society (e.g., encouraging people to choose NOT to watch lewd or violent programs of their own volition is “censorship”, which I thought ONLY the Government could do…). So, in light of the Newton, CT shootings, let’s ban all the first-person shooter video games so the precious children aren’t incited to live out their electronic violent fantasies. However, my adult children were all raised on PCs, Ninentdo, and Sega, and played the likes of Doom, Duke Nukem, and Castle Wolfenstein, to mention a few. Of the four of them (I’m also raising a fifth, who is now 12, as a single Dad), two are BYU graduates, one is a Senior at BYU majoring in Chemical Engineering, and the one who didn’t go to a four-year college is nevertheless employed full-time, married and a homeowner. None of them have ever been in trouble with the law, all are sober and responsible young adults. They were guided in the use of firearms, having accompanied their Dad, Grandpa, and Uncles on outings to either target shoot or hunt. They were all strictly taught that firearms are deadly weapons and thought a Constitutional right, a very serious responsibility to own and bear.
    Senator Feinstein, you’re a disgrace to the Golden State and I will work diligently to ensure that you do not get re-elected in 2016, if a way can’t be found before then to recall you. Just ask Grey Davis how much shit the good people of California are willing to put up with.

    • Jean

      Californians seem willing to bend over for anything, I’m afraid… :-(

  • MarshRabbit

    The framers were aware of the mentally ill; they called them lunatics. They did not exempt lunatics from the Second Amendment. So we must respect the Second Amendment rights of the mentally ill or accept that this is a right that can be infringed.

    • Jean

      There were mentally ill people then, too. They were often killed through their actions, or their actions on others – and NOT ONE FUCKING IDIOT SHED A TEAR, really. (Families might be exempted from the “idiot” moniker. MIGHT.)

      And, I’m sorry to those who have to deal with mentally ill (meaning, socially dysfunctional criminally insane) people, and meaning Social Dysfunctional in it’s strongest sense, not just asocial or antisocial. The paranoid, schizophrenic, and psychotic. And these should be limited or destroyed one way or another, if they be dangerous – but it’s not necessary to keep them alive. Respect for life, sure. If we explore that further:
      - We must respect the life of a murderer (no capital punishment), but MUST NOT infringe on a “woman’s right to choose.”

      Because the individual who has decided to kill others and willfully commits callous acts deserves life more than an incovenient lump of tisssue who might interfere with the potential mother’s ride on the cock carousel. So, the innocent pays for mommy’s fun.

      It’s a form of birth control, pushed by social progressives in the hopes that the niggers would use it, frequently. (Look up Margaret Sanger: a Eugenecist, Marxist, Elitist, and pyscho.) It’s not used that way. And Blacks and Latinos (the intended users) don’t use as much as affluent white women (wish I could cite that… Article was over a year ago, I don’t recall the location to even search. Suggest reader try google for that as well as Sanger.)

      As far as your argument goes, BTW: A Manic/Depressive STILL has a right to defend themselves. And SHOULD have the right to kill themselves, for that matter. Reasoned decision (if such can be said of those truly mentally ill) should be respected.
      The problem is, we are selfish: it hurts US to see / know of someone’s death. We ignore their pain and suffering.

      I would be a good example: I’m transgendered. You want to REALLY make someone miserable, twist their mental chemistry, put them into a severe religious household that frowns on any “cross-gender” behavior, limit their socilization, and after the religious and school organizations are done warping their mind, they get to find out that there WAS a chance to live a decent life; there WAS medical assistance available; there’s no cure, but there IS a solution (besides suicide); and the PARENTS blocked any attempt at knowledge on “non-approved” subjects. (Example: Ferris Beuler’s Day Off was a dirty movie. For a 12 year old or so…)

      So as an adult, I’m spending twice as much mental energy on EVERYTHING: How I speak; What I say; HOW I say it; How I gesture; what I wear. And STILL there’s the ENDLESS SCREAM in the back of my mind, coupled with the physical results of being twice the size (and like 3 times the strength) of what my mind thinks I am: I break things, I get stuck in doorways, I hit doorframes, get hurt, balance is off, body doesn’t move right, or have the right shapes, or sizes, ANYWHERE, and trying to correct in any “masculine” way grows muscle like crazy – pushing the “dream” farther away.

      But it gets worse, too – I expect people to react in a certain way. After about 20 years of watching and learning, I realize they will NOT react that way – in fact, they often react the opposite way. Because I’m MALE. So I need to run that same “translation” program I use for myself, on the feedback from others. What is encouragement, what is coaching, what is “male bonding”, what is female bonding, why, how…

      And at this point, there’s no point to even trying. Sexual insterest is still in females, passability is nil (too many scars, too much & too little hair, too strong, too ugly). And no emotional ties to anyone… If I hadn’t lost my family over the woman I’m living with, I would’ve lost them over my “issues” anyway. I should’ve married the woman I loved at least (would also have cost me my family), at least then it would be on MY terms…

      And for the sake of argument, if I killed myself: Let’s see, shitloads of poisons around, I colect swords and knives, and there’s always the kitchen knife or a razor blade: Not going to stop me. but if I did do it: What loss?
      I don’t keep this woman’s family alive. My family hurts. I go to hell. And the world continues on without noticing.

      So WTF difference does it make? The means is only relevant if I harm others, and even then, I’m nobody, unnoticed: a (dead) celebrity until the next nutcase, then forgotten even to history. Nothing gained,nothing lost.

      But according to the DSM-V (Psychatric bible), I’m now considered “mentally ill” – because they stacked the writing and defining board with people who wanted to pathologize “us”. Specifically Transgendered, Transsexual, Gay, Lesbian – but not JUST us. BTW, we’re back to being in with Pedophiles, Necrophiliacs, and bestialists. So dmaned no matter what, OK? That’s the sort of thing that just might make someone.. Angry… And then violent. Admit you have a problem, or we’ll declare you mentally unfit and decide you have a problem. Thus we control you.

      So, YES, the “Mentally Ill” need to be able to defend themselves. YOU could be next to be declared, “mental.” And what is your recourse? Cry, beg, scream? Just like a psychotic would do, you see. Whimper, beg, cry? Depressive. Stoically accept it? Paranoid, detached, psychotic. Figure you can sort it out “at the station”, in a sense? Optimistic delusional, shizoid, psychotic, etc, etc, etc. None need apply – but ALL will be on the form for Patient Intake.

      People who keep saying “It can’t happen here,” don’t realize: IT ALREADY HAS. Japanese Americans, WW2? McCarthyism? Red Lists? Black Lists? Bueller? BUELLER? ANYONE HOME, MCFLY?!

      Gays, Lesbians, Blacks, Trans, Single women, Eternal Bachelors, whatever: you can be demonized and stripped of your “rights” in a million ways, even before NDAA. Being “mentally ill” is just another method of control. Patriotism is a disease, you see… Curable with enough “aversion therapy.”

      Orwell DOES come to mind…
