      What makes you so certain that the honorable men and women of the US military will fire on their own? Perhaps you can recruit those blue beret-wearing, weak sisters of the UN. After all, they have the entire world quaking in fear of their arrival.

      • HappyLiberal

        You don’t get it, do you? If it ever got down to that, it’s not going to be individual combat like D-Day, Vietnam or even the Gulf War. It would be drones, kinetic weapons (look up “Rods from God”) and some guy pushing buttons like it’s a video game in a windowless bunker somewhere. Meanwhile, the proud NRA membership will be wetting their pants and hiding in their basements, all their Walter Mitty fantasies evaporated in seconds.

          Bud, you are the one with “Walter Mitty fantasies”. The standing military numbers well under 1,000,000 combat troops. There are tens of millions of motivated and well armed patriots who are ready to turn back totalitarianism if it rears its ugly head. As RG points out, much of the military would rightly switch sides once the Constitution is clearly violated.

He was home on holiday leave last week and there was a major gun show in town. We were on our way to breakfast, and he saw the long lines of obese, camo-clad “patriots” waiting to enter the gun show. “101st Keyboard Rangers” he called them – a bunch of wannabes and almost-rans who couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag.

      Next, look at Afghanistan where a people dedicated to their cause drove out the great Russian Army and are doing a pretty fair job of holding their own against OUR mighty forces. But then, like most liberals YOU are willing to sacrifice your *and OUR) freedpms in the mistaken belief that in so doing you will achieve “safety and security.”

      HappyLiberal, If you studied history or ever wore a uniform you would know that all high technique weapons were created by man and most have flaws. What doesn’t regulate in that brain of yours, American’s owning guns have been the deterrent factor stopping invasion from foreign enemies. We are the freest country in the world because we are a well armed society. Your the one living in that fantasy world of your liberal concept of patriotism taught to your in the liberal schools as activism. Question: Do think our military will take an order to fire on their families, friends and neighbors for this tyrannical government and a president that has constantly spit on our military and disobeys his oath by choice which makes him a traitor. HappyLiberal, when you have no way to fight back there is no options but to become a slave or throw rocks like the countries who have been disarmed. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, classified leaks, Obama arming Egypt an unstable government given war fighter jets to turn on our allies the Israelis. Obama’s constant spending to weaken our sovereignty. If you trust this SOB then you have a screw loose. News Flash, Syria is a country ruled by a tyrant 40,000 innocent citizens killed by their government, I’m a person who believes in choice and conviction, don’t buy, own a weapon if that is your choice, live in gun free zones and patronize businesses posted no guns allowed. I will chose to own as many weapons as I like to protect my family, friends and neighbors and to carry a concealed weapon on my person, that I have carried as a saver of life. A gun is a tool, the human brain is the mechanism if a gun part is broken it doesn’t fire without being repaired the mind can be completely broken and still fire a gun. The vast majority of people who are sane and that respect life don’t want to kill but only protect their loved ones.You have never faced death where god is not on duty and a weapon is your savior. I fill my freezer with meat and eat the game I kill, I killed for my country and I worked as a police officer to protect and to serve, my last twelve years working in Dept of Federal Prisons seeing people who killed, raped and tortured the innocent who have no respect for life, there are born killers and truly evil people.I hope you never have to confront one of these type of people because you will certainly be an easy victim by choice. And some information that is truth and facts not rhetoric of a dumb down society by hypocrisy. I remember every day and wish I never had to take a life. You have dreams I have nightmares but in the real world you have a second to adjust to reality. . .

      My grandfather, in the 1940’s, lived in a 3 room country house, no electricity or indoor plumbing, no a/c, had a pot bellied stove for heat, and a loaded twelve gauge double barrel in the corner.12 children and 20+ grandchildren. No one ever touched that gun, no women swooned at the horribleness of a loaded gun. I guess that was a gun culture, but no one even thought about it. That really is a culture isn’t it.

      • mtman2

        Folks then{could now}, knew guns in the RIGHT hands were a good thing,a tool necessary when needed. Women could “run” one if needed + kids KNEW to NOT touch any gun without permission from a knowledgeable adult. They actually had rules + proper protocol in society then, with discipline/shame for wrongdoing, in most homes + communities. And going to CHURCH was a way of life for most families, each community had multiple denominations of CHRISTIANITY. They understood the meaning of a “HIGHER CALLING”, with attending “HIGHER JUDGEMENT” ie- respect for HOLINESS, life, property + propriety. Look up Alex de-Tocqueville assessments of Americans in 1835 very prescient + still very relevant. He said,” When the past no longer illuminates the future, the spirit walks in DARKNESS”. The 10 commandments were in every school, court, public bldg + the pledge of allegiance was publicly recited every day to remind us just who we are. The Imperial Japanese found out as did WE when ‘under the gun’, now their one of our best friends!

      • HappyLiberal

        And the fact that your grandfather was living in a shack in the sticks with no indoor plumbing is something to be proud of?
        Thankfully, my grandfather ran a successful dairy farm, had running water, and knew how to use birth control. He put all three of his children through college and two through law school.
        That’s the cultural difference between “my kind” and yours; you are content to cling to outhouses and shotguns. We prefer more refined lifestyles and a higher standard of living.

          • HappyLiberal

            Shockingly, I agree somewhat. Education doesn’t necessarily = intelligence. There are some intelligent people out there who didn’t, for one reason or another, get through high school or college.

            But… education IS directly correlated to higher income, marital success, in-wedlock births, health and life expectancy. Statistically, the liberal “Blue States” have more college-educated professionals and kick the tar out of the sad, pathetic Bible Belt South. And the more formal education you have, the more likely you are to be a registered Democrat and lean to the left politically. We win.

      Humanists, Atheists Demanding More Privileges

      Today’s drive for “tolerance” and multiculturalism has created some strange scenarios. Major Ray Bradley has applied to be recognized as the first humanist “distinctive faith group leader” in the U.S. Army. Currently, the service only recognizes “atheist” as a category that Bradley can have inscribed on his dog tags.

      He objects to this designation as too negative: “Humanism is a philosophy that guides a person. It’s more than just a stamp of what you’re not.” When Bradley enlisted in 1986, the only designation available was: “No Religious preference.” His present effort is supported by the Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers (MAAF). Besides “humanist,” they want to see “spiritual but not religious” added to the official designations available in the Army’s official records.

      The MAAF is also responsible for getting Bibles removed from the Air Force list of items provided in approved lodging facilities, and the word, “God” from the logo of its Rapid Capabilities office. One threatening letter from the MAAF was all it took.

      In Dallas, The American Humanist Association (AHA) took a page out of the homosexual playbook and accused a theater of violating the federal Civil Rights Act by refusing to show an advertisement from a local atheist group.

      These efforts are just part of a growing trend by militant anti-religion activists to speak up for more recognition. Over the last few years, billboards, bus placards and even public demonstrations promoting “disbelief” have made news.

      According to the most recent American Religious Identification Survey, approximately 30 million people in the United States identify themselves as atheist, humanist, freethinker or agnostic.

      But humanism is more central to mankind’s basic rebellion against his Creator. As Bradley points out, humanism is a philosophy that guides people, not just a declaration of no confidence in the existence of a Creator.

      In fact, Satan’s lie to Eve that she could “be as gods,” was the start of Bradley’s philosophy of humanism which elevates mankind to the supreme position in the universe.

      The full blossoming of humanism began about the same time as the Reformation. Under the thumb of the popes during the dark ages, ignorance and superstition reigned in the culture. Without available books, few could read.

      Gutenberg’s printing press (and the wonderful chemists who invented cheap paper) broke that barrier. Within 50 years, 10 million books were available; especially the Bible.

      But when you read the Bible, you have to make a choice: submit to your Creator —or reject Him. Two streams of modern history were born at that point: the Reformation and the Secular streams.

      Biblical doctrine guided the Reformation, which transformed western culture into the most prosperous, free society yet. Birth pangs in Northern Europe and Great Britain birthed the United States of America, dedicated to living in accord with a biblical path.

      But the humanists in Europe, who fostered the bloody French Revolution, were busy planting seeds of their “philosophy” in America. Harvard, Yale, and Columbia were founded as pastor training schools. Now they are fountainheads of godlessness which flows all the way down to our kindergartens.

      Humanism seeks to establish heaven on earth by evolution’s natural selection, technology’s grand discoveries, psychology’s personality enhancements, and search for cosmic enlightenment. Biblical prophecy shows that their dream will never happen; that only Jesus’ return can redeem the creation from the pollution of human arrogance.

      • LadyforLiberty

        Raymond: Much as I respect you and agree with your accurate posts most of the time, I must point out that a Humanist in my opinion, and in the opinion of the Founding Fathers,have a RIGHT not to be religious, or follow an established religion if he/she so desires.
        That, in my opinion is a strength of the Constitution.
        That oddballs who would bring out Political Correctness could not have been foreseen by the great Men who defeated the Superpower of the 1700s!
        All the people who push “Gayness” instead of the definitively correct “homosexual”are the same airheads who push so called “equality issues” in school! Or Abortion issues. or any plain stupid “ism” they can think of next with their “Way out, spaced out, hippiesforever” dangerous behavior!
        BUT, they have the right to free speech.
        NOW! In about 20 years, when PC goes out of fashion, the Americans of tomorrow will throw out the accepted, which by then will be “old hat” and another PC will be emerge.
        With a bit of luck it could be Morals, Modesty. Right Behaviour, Love of family, love of Wife (not Partner), Love of Country and Constitution.
        Unlikely? That is what Patriotic Americans in the 40s would have thought about the 1960s, but Free Love happened, as did men/men and woman/woman relationships.
        However, PC in my view is worse than bad, it has become a religion.
        And with the record of religion oppression is always a part of the teachings.
        That is why the citizens of the future, with the amazing technology they will have created, will maybe have less interest in any religion, including one which seeks to deny the human spirit.
        Todays religions fight each other, and Secularists.
        The original Enlightenment people gathered together for a better world.
        A result was the United States.
        Not having a crystal ball, I have NO IDEA of the future, but believe me, as a child who loved to watch the mail plane fly over (a DC3), I never at that time thought I would be able to fly the Atlantic in comfort at 35000ft and at 550mph! THAT is progress! Progress that I believe in.
        Politics and religion (as taught by modern religions) leaves me cold.
        If I wanted Control, I could construct some myself with computer and microswitches.
        Control is what politicians want. THAT is the one thing every American MUST fight. if necessary, to the very death!
        However, those with other opinions should be tolerated as the FF declared.
        Have a good 2013, and god Bless you and yours!!

          2 Peter 3

          1This second epistle, beloved, I now write untoyou; in both which I stir up your pure minds byway of remembrance: 2That ye may be mindful ofthe words which were spoken before by the holyprophets, and of the commandment of us theapostles of the Lord and Saviour:

          3Knowing this first, that there shall come in thelast days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,4And saying, Where is the promise of his coming?for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continueas they were from the beginning of the creation.5For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by theword of God the heavens were of old, and the earthstanding out of the water and in the water:6Whereby the world that then was, beingoverflowed with water, perished: 7But the heavensand the earth, which are now, by the same word arekept in store, reserved unto fire against the day ofjudgment and perdition of ungodly men.

          8But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing,that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years,and a thousand years as one day.

          9The Lord is not slack concerning his promise,as some men count slackness; but is longsufferingto us-ward, not willing that any should perish, butthat all should come to repentance. 10But the day ofthe Lord will come as a thief in the night; in thewhich the heavens shall pass away with a greatnoise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat,the earth also and the works that are therein shall beburned up.

          11Seeing then that all these things shall bedissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to bein all holy conversation and godliness, 12Lookingfor and hasting unto the coming of the day of God,wherein the heavens being on fire shall bedissolved, and the elements shall melt with ferventheat? 13Nevertheless we, according to his promise,look for new heavens and a new earth, whereindwelleth righteousness. 14Wherefore, beloved,seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent thatye may be found of him in peace, without spot, andblameless. 15And account that the longsuffering ofour Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brotherPaul also according to the wisdom given unto himhath written unto you; 16As also in all his epistles,speaking in them of these things; in which are somethings hard to be understood, which they that areunlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also theother scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17Yetherefore, beloved, seeing ye know these thingsbefore, beware lest ye also, being led away with theerror of the wicked, fall from your ownstedfastness. 18But grow in grace, and in theknowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

        Well, yes, of course… Believing in talking snakes and wandering prophets muttering in the desert certainly trumps the scientific method, logic and reason.
        For centuries the religious hierarchy persecuted scientists and free-thinkers. It’s preferable to believe in the supernatural than to do the hard work of science and reason. Better, according to those who think in religious terms, to take the easy way out and rely upon a Bronze Age book full of garbled nonsense written by nomads in the desert than to actually use your intellect.

          Obviously you really haven’t taken much of a look at the prophets. Much of their prophecies have come true centuries after the fact. Funny…..there’s also plenty of archaeological evidence to support much of those writings which we have manuscripts of that DATE back thousands of years. But don’t let that interupt you “superior dance”. You guys seem to think there were like these 3 guys who lived a few centuries ago who as a joke and a lark decided to make up a religion and write a Bible, then it got out of hand with high priests and kings using it for power.

        This also reminds me of another “humanist”, Anton Levey, who founded the first church of satan in San Francisco in the 60’s. He basically cut out the rhetoric of calling himself a progressive and just came out with satanism directly. At least he was honest about his rebellion.

    had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every

    had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in
    the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes,

Given that his crime appears to be accessing the internet in violation of a probation order, the show of force doesn’t seem justified and, more likely, was used to send a message to anyone else who might get the idea of offending allies of our administration.

    I might add the Gun Culture I belong to understands that what is mine is mine and what is yours is yours. We call that respect for other people’s property. That respect is an extension of a basic respect for other people. The one true thing I know of something found just sitting somewhere is; it is not mine. I also know that words must be backed by actions to have any worth.
    We also respect life. We understand the finality of death that can result from callous or unthinking action. Our world must reach beyond our own noses out to where our guns can reach. That seems to help us be less self-centered. We are aware of the world around us and all in it. We have a very real understanding of the preciousness of life.

    During the Civil War it was determined that states did not have the right to secede. You can thank Abe Lincoln for that. Since then our federal government has been growing, unchecked and out of control. Our federal government has become a monster, beyond the constraints of our Constitution. What makes anybody think that our 2nd Amendment will survive, while this unchecked monster has obama in the wheelhouse.

    Once the federal government has sidestepped the 2nd Amendment, what is to stop obama from dictatorship? Believe me, this is their goal. We have got to make a stand, somewhere, some time. We are watching what was once believed to be the unfathomable. Just 5 short years ago I would never have believed that America would not come to the defense of Israel. Now?

    Good article. I agree with you. Here are some stats/facts to provide good hard evidence of the sentence you wrote indicating: Nearly every nation that practiced gun control has eventually seen their citizens wiped out in acts of mass murder or genocide.

    Let’s see what history shows us about that theory and the consequences.

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated

    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE EACH A RIFLE.

    SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

    And Chicago has some of the strongest strictest gun control laws on the books, and it has the highest incidence of gun crime/murder of any place on the planet!

    From John Lott: The city of Chicago currently has the most restrictive gun control laws on the books, has been declared a “gun free zone” where handguns are banned, yet it is the most bloody city in the world in terms of gun-related deaths. The city averages 40 deaths per month from guns, and is nearing 500 for the year. Chicago’s murder rate is 19.4 per 100,000, which is by far the highest rate in the nation, at nearly 3 times New York which is at 6, and nearly 2 ½ times Los Angeles’ 7.5. In fact, Chicago ranks as the number one deadliest Alpha city (significant urban center in the global economic system) on the planet. Since it is no longer possible to legally own guns within city limits, the only ones who still have them are criminals. It doesn’t appear gun control works for Chicago. In fact, the city illustrates how correct the aphorism is that if guns are outlawed, only the outlaws have guns. The law-abiding citizens do not.

    And my last point: Gun-free zones – a total failure!!!! With just one exception, every public mass shooting in the USA since at least 1950 has taken place where citizens are banned from carrying guns.

    Gun control is not about guns, it is about control!

  • Bill Weston

    Very well stated R.G. Yoho and totally accurate. Since no “shooting war” has occured in our country for one hundred and fifty years, people forget how ugly war can be. Teddy Roosevelt’s “Speak softly and carry a big stick” still applies in this very violent world. (Native-americans formerly called guns “firesticks” in case some progressives fail to make the connection.) As Nehimiah armed the workers that rebuilt Jerusalem’s wall, armed americans protected our homeland and manufacturing that ultimatly defeated Japan, Germany, Italy, and their allies in WWII. That is a lesson that must NOT be forgotten.

  • David S. McQueen

    It’s clear that the anti-gun mob doesn’t want to disarm Americans to “save the children”. The idea behind it is control over the citizenry. The gun-grabbers believe they can’t control Americans when most of the citizens have guns, so the constant efforts to disarm sane, law-abiding Americans. Please note that NEVER has any liberal called for disarming insane criminals.

    Your history of the Chinese atrocities was a good example of what happens to a society with severe gun control.I think to further drive your point home is the fact that the Chinese didn’t learn the lesson,and embraced a dictator named Mao who made sure they were defenseless against his ” government” and rounded up any opposition,making them disappear into a dark hole,or off the face of the earth all together.

    I grew up in the thick of the gun culture, in the rural South. Most of us had guns and we never shot anybody. We also all had pocket knives that we carried everywhere, even to school, and we never cut or stabbed anybody. The rare physical disputes were settled with fists, and very quickly at that. The small town of 2000 that I grew up in had a total of 10, count ‘em, 10 churches. 7 were on the white side of the railroad yards, and 3 were on the black side. They were all well-attended as nearly everyone back then in the ’50’s and early ’60’s went to church and Sunday school. Every school day started with the Lord’s Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. We didn’t have school shootings then either. Teachers rarely had trouble with students, and students physically assaulting teachers was unheard of. People, both adults and children, were politer and more respectful then too, and the words “Sir” and “Ma’am” were heard all day, every day. Right now, I’m just thankful that I’m 67 instead of 27, and likely won’t be around to witness the final downfall of this once great country and the total subjugation of its once-free citizens.

      Well said Greg we used to bring guns to the janitor at school and after school hunt with the principle . Now the progressive socialist left has made our schools hysterical cesspools of propaganda.

    What horrible quirk of human nature makes some take any major accomplishment by any but themselves and immediately try to pick it to pieces? Is it ENVY? Because THEY didn’t conceive of, create, devise, or greatly improve something, it MUST be degraded, or torn down!

    The Constitution is one of the greatest documents devised by men in search of freedoms, of existence, of faith, and the least interference in one’s life! However, this document has existed for 225 YEARS, with few changes! This must REALLY grate on some!

    YES, there are those who cannot STAND to let thinge be! They MUST INTERFERE, they MUST CHANGE, they MUST CONTROL others! Whether or not the ‘others’ agree!

    If nothing else, they nit-pick every little thing. And, if there is nothing said about what they want, they MAKE UP something. Take the freedom of faith thing; The idea was everybody could worship as they please. We’ve ALSO allowed those who DON”T want to worship, that they DO NOT, although THIS wasn’t listed! The idea was there would only be no STATE supported religion, only!

    A phrase, ‘freedom of religion’ was coined by one of our founding forefathers, in his letters. This WAS NOT listed in any laws, regulations, Constitution, etc! Now some want to take this “non-official” phrase, REPHRASE it to read: “freedom FROM religion”!

    So, something, NEVER, EVER, encoded into laws, has been used, by a small minority, to FORCE the majority to NOT celebrate OUR religions as we have in the past! One even stated that the sight of the nativity scene, “made me sick seeing it!” OMG! And, some idiotic judge bought it!

    Back to the gun thing (sorry for the dissertation!): Laws ONLY apply to the law-abiding! When people relinquish their 2nd amendment rights to ‘keep and bear arms’, the criminal element will NOT! This gives them a huge advantage…….they KNOW their prey has NO defenses! Does the phrase, “shooting fish in a barrel” sound familiar?

    people to never give up on that RIGHT, it is our best defense.

    The framers of that great document placed that amendment

    Rights Are NOT Gifts from Government:

    Following the recent school shooting in Connecticut, American citizens have once again displayed their total ignorance concerning the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment. Facebook postings, comments to so-called news articles and letters to the editor are calling for repeal of the Second Amendment. These individuals believe the right to own a firearm is based on the Second Amendment and the right will vanish if the Amendment can be repealed. Unless the Second Amendment created the right, then repeal of the Amendment cannot constitutionally abolish the right.

    Following the Federal [Constitutional] Convention of 1787 and the subsequent ratification of the Constitution in 1788, the several States began submitting amendments to Congress for consideration. By September of 1789, Congress had reduced approximately 210 separate amendments to 12. The amendments were inserted into a congressional resolution and submitted to the several States for consideration. Of these, numbers 2-12 were ratified by the States in 1791 and became the so-called Bill of Rights.

    A little known fact about this resolution is that it contained a preamble declaring the purpose of the proposed amendments. Most modern editions of the Bill of Rights either do not contain the preamble or only include the last paragraph. The most important paragraph is the first one because it discloses the intent of the proposed amendments.

    A review of this paragraph shows that the sole purpose of the proposed amendments was to prevent the federal government from “misconstruing or abusing its powers.” To accomplish this, “Further declaratory and restrictive clauses” were being proposed. The amendments, if adopted, would place additional restraints or limitations on the powers of the federal government to prevent that government from usurping its constitutional powers.

    Every clause of the Bill of Rights, without exception, is either a declaratory statement or a restrictive provision. If the Bill of Rights had granted rights, then the word “granted” would have to appear each and every time a right was being established. A review of the Bill of Rights shows that the word “granted” does not appear in any Amendment.

    In reality, the Bill of Rights placed additional or secondary restraints on the powers of the federal government concerning the rights of the people and powers reserved to the States. That is why the words “no,” “not” and “nor” appear throughout the Amendments instead of the word “granted.”

    Since the Second Amendment did not create or grant any right concerning firearms, the right enumerated in the Amendment has to be an existing right separate from the Amendment. Thus, repealing the Second Amendment would not eliminate any right because the right enumerated in the Amendment was not created by the Amendment. The right to keep and bear arms exists independent of the Constitution or the Second Amendment.

    In order to help explain this constitutional principle, I reluctantly decided to reference a United States Supreme Court case from 1875. Normally, I would not cite a court case to support a constitutional principle because too many opinions do not reflect the true intent of the Framers. However, I decided to make an exception because this decision states this constitutional principle clearly and concisely and has never been overturned.

    In the case of United States v Cruikshank, the United States Supreme Court held that the rights enumerated in the Bill of Rights were not granted by the Amendments and are not dependent upon the Constitution for their existence. The Court also ruled that the Amendments were restraints on the powers of the federal government and it is the duty of States to secure the individual rights of the American people.

    One of the most definitive and succinct interpretations of the Second Amendment is found in the Court’s second holding: “The right there specified is that of ‘bearing arms for a lawful purpose.’ This is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The Second Amendment declares that it shall not be infringed: but this, as has been seen, means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress. This is one of the amendments that has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the National [Federal] Government… .”

    The Second Amendment did not create or grant any right to keep and bear arms. It placed an additional restraint on the powers of the federal government concerning the existing right to keep and bear arms. Thus, all a repeal could do, from a federal standpoint, is remove the secondary restraint imposed on federal power by the Amendment. And since many States have a right to keep and bear arms clause in their constitution, separate and apart from the Federal Constitution or the Second Amendment, the existence or non-existence of the Second Amendment would not affect the right because the federal government was not granted and does not have the general power to abolish a natural or individual right secured by a State Constitution.

    Note: There is a school of thought that the Fourteenth Amendment made, through a doctrine known as incorporation, the Second Amendment applicable to the individual States. Since the Second Amendment did not create a right, then repeal of the Amendment could not abolish the right in the individual States through the Fourteenth Amendment.

    There’s an article on Clash Daily, nicknamed “from Russia with love”. It’s an article written by a Russian in Pracda. He’s BEGGING us not to give up our guns!!!

    I visited with a lady trucker this morning who claimed to own 160 guns. Not sure if she’s exaggerating or not.. Between my 70-year-old mother and I, we own almost a dozen. With 300 million guns in this nation, it’s gonna be REAL hard to get them all!!

    This Nation needs to get back to GOD.. If we do not, we stand to see the end of this great Nation. And Yes,, it is true that our families before us were a family of GOD fearing people that worshiped him and also knew how to take care of themselves and each other. We had some bad times in our history, like the Hadfields and McCoys. Even being GOD fearing, they stood against one another because they would not back down from the other. But also, back in their time, Men were supposed to stand against one another and not worry about government that rarely showed up to take care of business like they stick their nose into things they shouldn’t now days.. If the government would stay where they are supposed to be and not up in our business like they do now, we would have a better place among ourselves. But in this day and time, the government thinks they should stir up trouble at every chance they get. They truly need to back the heck off if you know what I mean…

    I got a great email about the “Battle of Athens Tennessee” in 1946 where a bunch of returning veterans had to take arms from the local armory in order to retrieve the stolen ballot boxes taken from their local sherriff who was bought by a local family who had basically been fixing elections for years. Funny…I can’t find anything on this battle on snopes or factcheck? The uproar about repealling the 2nd amendment or just plain ignoring it and going into gun confiscation by the wants of the libtard left, further reminds me that the 2nd amendment is not about hunting.

    There is one aspect of the recent mass shootings that has not been considered.
    That is the problem of “Copy Cat” actions.

    A solution is readily available. Control Information.

    Trying to control weapons will not work. It never has. Stop the models for the Copy
    Cats. Deny them what they most desire—notoriety.

    Whenever there is a shooting the Media (TV, reporters, editors, Copy Cats, etc.) immediately swarm the area. They attempt to learn anything about the event including the victims, the victims’ families, and the shooter.
    What is not learned is made up in “suppositions” and guesses. For the next week the press fills the airwaves with words that usually say nothing. People with a very limited association and virtually no knowledge of the victims or the shooter give interviews that provide nothing to help an investigation. They just fill time and provide publicity for the shooter to an audience that does not need the information.

    And the Copy Cats listen and plan. They learn what to do and what not to do in their search for maximum exposure.

    To prevent Copy Cats the Media should be prevented from observing the scene or reporting the event. “Live” TV coverage should be prohibited. The Public cannot help the victims or their families.
    News venues can help prevent future occurrences by keeping knowledge of the events from potential Copy Cats. Usually Copy Cats create an event with hope of publicity and the expectation of either being killed or killing themselves. Either way
    they achieve their purpose of notoriety.
    They do not think like ordinary people. Why feed their sickness?

    It should be against the Law for Officials, Journalists, or private citizens to release or
    discuss any information about the event, or to give Media interviews, or for any news personnel to report it in any manner, to include the internet.

    A KGB officer, after the fall of the USSR, said that the commies and the Red Army decided it was not possible to invade and occupy the US because of the prevalence of privately owned firearms. Even we haven’t, as yet, used our firearms for the purpose the founders intended in the second amendment (overthrowing oppressive gummint), but thats coming, there’s no telling how many times the knowledge of those firearms in the hands of free citizens stopped would-be tyrants from making that mistake. The current batch of oppressors are obviously not that intelligent, spurred on by their owners in the NWO.

    Regardless , we are handing over both freedom and guns to the progressive fools we have sent ot Washington .

  • BigUgly666

    Go ahead …. repeal the Second Amendment …… the “government” is not, nor has it for some time, honored the GUARANTEE not to infringe on OUR PRE-EXISTING RIGHT.

    The ONLY thing that the Second Amendment does is to promise that the “government” will not interfere. Read the first ten amendments to the Constitution …. then tell me …. if you can …… which of those ten GUARANTEES are currently being honored by this administration …. or any of the recent administrations, for that matter.
