King Barry the Waster, has his “gun ban list.” As evidenced in HR 1022 which was proposed in 2007, the Liberals are bent on disarming US citizens. What many citizens and legislators do not understand is that the federal government has no right to prevent any law-abiding citizen from owning or possessing ANY firearm. The Constitution and its history is unequivocally clear on this! Here is a little 2nd Amendment for Dummies and Tyrants.
Everything we need to know was explained by our founders in the years 1787-1788. Lesson one comes from George Mason. George Mason, along with James Madison, is referred to as the “Father of the Bill of Rights.” Seems to me a good person to listen to when it comes to any portion of the Bill of Rights is someone who is referred to as its “Father.” Mason first explains the REASON we are to bear arms, and guess what; it has nothing to do with hunting and skeet shooting…or fighting muggers!
“Forty years ago, when the resolution ofenslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, (Sir William Keith) who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia. [Here Mr. Mason quoted sundry passages to this effect.] Why should we not provide against the danger of having our militia, our real and natural strength, destroyed? The general government ought, at the same time, to have some such power. But we need not give them power to abolish our militia.” George Mason, Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 14, 1788
In the words of the “Father,” we bear arms to keep from becoming enslaved by the federal government. But Mr. Mason doesn’t end his lesson there, he continues by making sure we know WHO the militia is and the answer will surely be a surprise to King Barry and his jester, Eric Holder.
“Mr. Chairman, a worthy member has askedwho are the militia, if they be not the people of this country, and if we are not to be protected from the fate of the Germans, Prussians, &c., by our representation? I ask, Who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers. But I cannot say who will be the militia of the future day. If that paper on the table gets no alteration, the militia of the future day may not consist of all classes, high and low, and rich and poor…” George Mason, Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 16, 1788
So Mason explains We The People are the militia who bear arms to keep from being enslaved by the federal government AND to protect ourselves from the tyranny of OUR REPRESENTATIVES, whose dereliction leads us to suffer the same fate of foreign nations!
Lesson two comes from the great patriot Noah Webster. Speaking on the threat of an overpowering central government, he further explains, with great clarity, the REASON our founders intended the entire citizenry be armed.
Even the dummies out there should be able to follow that. Why do we bear arms according to Noah Webster?
1. To prevent rule by a standing army;
2. To prevent Congress from executing unjust and unconstitutional laws;
3. To prevent the Federal Government from becoming unjust and oppressive;
4. The people bearing arms should be SUPERIOR to an army controlled by Congress.
Lesson number 3 comes from a founder referred to in pseudonym as Letter from a Federal Farmer (most likely Richard Henry Lee, writer of the Resolution Declaring Independence). This interesting explanation is guaranteed to make every liberal and even a “conservative” or two slip into a fit of convulsions. Mr. Lee explains,
Mr. Lee explains that it is our DUTY to not simply bear arms but to ALWAYS bear arms. Mr. Lee is probably rolling over in his grave at the idea that we have to ask permission of the government to carry a firearm. How about that directive that we also must teach our children to bear arms? I smell the smoke roiling out of the liberals’ ears.
Our final lessons today come from Patrick Henry. Mr. Henry was probably one of the most passionate champion of the citizen’s duty to bear arms. No one can break it down like Patrick Henry.
Well, there you have it, 2nd Amendment for Dummies and Tyrants. Yet, perhaps King Barry and his court jesters DO UNDERSTAND the meaning of the 2nd Amendment. Perhaps that is why he is so intent on disarming the people, because he knows, as our founders did, that an armed citizenry is the last line of defense against absolute tyranny.
Just remember, the Federal government has no legitimate power beyond what its masters delegate to it. The States are the final battleground against centralized tyranny. We will defend our States, until we regain our nation.
