The Bill of Rights can only be read one way..."that it applies to each and every person as an individual".
The idea that you have to be a part of a "militia group" or a religious "group" to have these rights is false.
War’s coming, folks. A civilizational clash.
Very well written!
Thanks for posting it.
I was also quite pleasantly surprised last night with Mark Levin. He led the program with a monologue on the Second Amendment and was quite blunt about it: the right to keep and bear arms isn't about hunting or or stopping muggers. It's about stopping a tyrannical government.
Excellent. Simply excellent.
We are facing a propaganda barrage from the rapist enablers and tyrants in Big Media and Big Government to demonize guns and gun owners. I'm very glad to see folks with big platforms "shooting" back.
And weren’t allthose donated American private guns destroyed by the British government rather than being issued?
The British just had a much milder form of tyranny than the Germans.
He just minds law-abiding white people owning guns.
I do not own guns because I am free, I am free because I own guns.
Great post Taxman.
Your post inspired me to read further.
I found an website where some one posts 76 reasons to own a gun. There’s probably even more.
I hope you won’t mind me sharing that link.
I’ll be signing off now, so there will be no quick responses to any comments.
“Guns are meant to kill. Amen! Theyre a tool made for killing.”
Not necessarily. A skeet gun is not designed to kill, although it can. A target rifle or pistol is not designed to kill, although it can.
The philosophy behind the design of some military rifles and their cartridges was that they should wound rather than kill because killing an opponent took just one out of combat while wounding him took three or more out due to the number of people required to care for the wounded one.
My personal defense weapons are designed for defense. They can kill, but that is incidental to the defense effort. Here in Ohio (last I heard) we arent even allowed to shoot to kill. Were only allowed to shoot to stop. Any killing is a side effect of the stopping.
That guns are only for killing is gun control propaganda that too many of us fall for.
Yesterday I watched Charles Kuralt’s “The Revoutionary War” (1994) on the Military Channel (5-6 hrs). Does everyone realize how tenuous our hold on victory was? How uncertain the outcome of that war was? The Brits had most of the soldiers, most of the training, most of the arms, most of the powder, most of the bullets, most of the food and comforts and won most of the battles. But the Patriots won the campaign and the war.
Not only must we prevent the government from ever taking our guns, we must train to use them. And that goes for people like me who have (until now) been content to have others (husband, police, army) protect us. We all need to be prepared.
Because of the Second Amendment we are not slaves today.
On a back shelf in the mind of every politician since the beginning of our nation sits the Second Amendment.
I am convinced that we are free today because of the Second Amendment. Without this protection the Marxists would have made their move to tyranny in the 1920s and 30s. Before them, some other wan’nabe tyrant would have.
True, but tyranny's advance team is the crew that has already added over 5500 new regulations this year. (As reported on Forbes on Fox this morning.) Most of which have been sitting, waiting for release, since well before the
The primary reason to own a firearm is to exercise our 2A right to defend against a tyrannical government. All other reasons should be considered secondary to maintaining liberty.
Excellent article. Copied parts of it to my “arsenal” for future reference.
The Second Amendment refers to the right of the people —it assumes the right is already there and establishes protections for it.
Because government does not grant rights, it cannot take them away no matter WHAT opinion makers in the NY Times opine or screeching pols like Diane Feinswine, Rahm or anyone else says.
ping - why have a gun?
