Gun Control and the Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms

Gun-Control vs the 2nd AmendmentRecently Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly and conservative radio personality, Michael Savage joined the ranks of the liberal, left-wing gun control nuts like NY City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Barack Obama in calling for bans on so-called assault rifles and high capacity magazines.  O’Reilly and Savage both cited that there is no reason for civilians to own such weaponry.

Well, let me set the record straight to why they are dead wrong…

The True Intent of The Second Amendment

The Second Amendment is NOT about hunting rights or sport shooting.  Did the framers of our Constitution just throw in the Second Amendment because they wanted to give the people the right to use guns for hunting?

I think not…

It’s about guaranteeing the citizens of the United States the right to own any firearm necessary to defend ourselves against our own government should they get out of control.  The Second Amendment  is also about the right and responsibility of WE THE PEOPLE to defend our nation against any foreign government that might try to invade our shores.

During colonial times all citizens were actually required by law (although it wasn’t enforced) to own the same type of firearm as the military carried.  These were not your average Kentucky long gun rifles but they were the highest quality, state of the art, hand-made rifles of the time.

So yes, we as Americans should be able to own any type of so-called “assault” rifle that we want to and we should be able to own high capacity magazines as well.  This is the original intent of our founding fathers, to give we the people the ability to stand against the tyranny of government should it rise against the citizenry.  We can’t do that with just hunting rifles and shotguns.

The police and military should never be able to outgun the citizenry.

No politician has the right to tell us what type of firearm that we can or can’t own!  I’m sick and damn tired of idiots in Congress that don’t known a damn thing about firearms or ammunition using isolated incidents caused by mad men to try and disarm us for power and political gain!

Make no mistake my fellow patriots that gun control by politicians has nothing to do with public safety but everything to do with power and control over you and me.

Assault rifles are owned by millions of people all over the United States and we don’t hear of any problems coming from those people.

If anything, an assault rifle is the quintessential Second Amendment firearm…

It’s the kind of weapon that soldiers and police use  and the Second Amendment was meant to equip the people and protect the equipping of the American people with those kinds of firearms so that the government could be held in check. 

The people should never fear the government… but the government should always fear the people.

The Second Amendment, more than ANYTHING is a political statement designed as one of the ways to keep the government under control.  If anything, I would say that the right to self defense is protected by the Ninth Amendment more so than the Second Amendment.  It’s one of our enumerated rights and therefore the Second Amendment is all about civilian militia and it’s all about individual citizens owning their own firearms for defense against the government should it try to impose tyranny against the people.

William S. Burroughs  once said, “After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn’t do it. I sure as hell wouldn’t want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military.”

Sweden is one of the safest countries in the world.  And the reason why is because EVERY CITIZEN is required by law to own a fully automatic weapon for the defense of the nation.  That’s right, every citizen owns an automatic rifle and you NEVER hear of terrorist attacks in Sweden or mass shootings by its citizens.  It’s because EVERYONE IS ARMED AND THEY ARE REQUIRED BY LAW TO BE ARMED.

The truth is that there has only been six mass shootings in the U.S. since 1999 (including Columbine High, Virginia Tech, Aurora Colorado and Newtown Connecticut). Millions of people own guns in the United States and compared to that very few violent crimes are actually committed with firearms.  More people actually commit suicide than are killed with guns every year.

The Second Amendment is really about empowering and equipping the citizenry to defend ourselves, our families and our nation against ALL enemies… foreign and domestic.  Don’t let the gun control nuts tell you any different.
