“A WELL REGULATED MILITIA, (MEANING AN ARMED POPULACE) BEING NECESSARY TO THE SECURITY OF A FREE STATE, THE RIGHT OF THE “PEOPLE” TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”
I’m not here to defend the Constitution. I’m here to take an offensive stand against those who are hell bent on destroying it and changing our Constitutional Republic into an involuntary socialist state.
In the history of the world, more people have been persecuted by their own governments than have ever been persecuted by invading armies.
Now in this country, those people who are ruled by the persuasions of Satan rather than by the Truth have the disarmament of the people as their major goal. How else can rulers put and keep us in bondage if we can defend ourselves? Those same groups also assault and undermine morality while at the same time using the very immorality they inspire as a means of further control and blackmail against the people whom they have corrupted. The pot calls the kettle black and prospers from the accusation.
As a barrier against their wiles, our forefathers foresaw these predators and established the Second Amendment to allow the people to protect themselves, and even before "protecting" themselves would become necessary, as a measure to forestal any attempt at tyranny, which is why it's taken so long to come to this point. Remember the founding fathers had just declared their own independence from a tyrannical government and they wanted their people in the future to always have a fighting chance against tyranny.
Are we now going to have to defend ourselves in the way the Founding Fathers foresaw? The only thing new is the history you haven’t read yet.
In this regard, Thomas Jefferson knew and quoted a very true saying when he wrote: “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined or determined to commit crimes…such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailant: they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” He also wrote in a letter to James Madison, "What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms." Is not the current murder spree in Chicago an illustration of the first quote? The second should remind us that this is a country by and for the people, not by and for bureaucratic rulers.
The America that I look at now is vastly different from the country I was raised to love. With all the talk lately of how great we as a nation are, it seems clear instead that the opposite is true. In fact we are more divided as a people now than at any point in my memory, and I lived through the riot years of the 1960s. Surely a house divided against itself cannot stand. The last sixty years or so of so called "advancement" have done nothing but turn each against all, in a dialectical war where every aspect of life is part of the combat.
What will the next sixty years bring, if we’re still here, if we continue down this path?
