Weekend Edition: Gun Rights vs Gun Control – The TRUTH

By Craig Andresen on January 13, 2013 at 2:13 am

The government can’t find 15 million ILLEGAL aliens and to be perfectly honest, they don’t WANT to but, by forcing gun registration…They WILL be able to find every LAW ABIDING gun owner in America. Am I the ONLY one who thinks something is wrong when the government, in an attempt to control people, does nothing about those who BREAK our laws and removes rights from those who ABIDE by the laws???

In the next few days, Joe Biden will submit his report on how to control you to the Emperor. Both he AND the Emperor have made it clear that Imperial Orders may well come into play against you regarding the 2nd Amendment.

Over the last few weeks, socialists, liberals and their pundits have not missed a single opportunity or microphone in their quest to demean and dismiss you, the law abiding gun owners of America.

They want you to believe that what they are about to propose or bypass congress to accomplish with regard to eroding your rights is for your safety and…of course…for the children.

Every time they want to remove some of your rights, it’s for the sake of the children.

BULL.

It’s time to make a few things crystal clear and I can assure you, liberals and socialists aren’t going to like this at all because…It’s the TRUTH.

How many times have we all heard a socialist, bent on controlling you by removing your rights, tell anyone within earshot that you don’t need an AR-15 to hunt deer?

Socialists are trying to SHAME you into bowing to their ideology and they HOPE you will be seen as the fool.

Socialists…YOU are playing YOURSELVES for the FOOLS.

The 2nd Amendment has NOTHING…NOTHING to do with hunting and YOU know it.

If it did, the right to keep and bear arms would ONLY apply during HUNTING SEASON and THAT varies from state to state.

This is NOT your INTERPRETATION of the 2nd Amendment…It’s your ATTEMPT to ALTER its meaning but, in a major inconvenience to YOU, WE have the words of those who FOUNDED this country to PROVE you wrong.

The 2nd Amendment was and IS about the right of the PEOPLE to protect themselves, their property and their families from TYRANNY and here is just a SMALL sample of the words of the FRAMERS to make it clear.

“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”  – Benjamin Franklin

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.”  -Noah Webster

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”  -  Thomas Jefferson

“… rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our own will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law,’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the right of an individual” -  Thomas Jefferson

The oh-so-pompous left has become quite fond of asking anyone who stands FOR the 2nd Amendment THIS question:

“Why do you think you NEED an AR-15?”

The proper answer…

“I hope I NEVER need one but, I do have the RIGHT to own one and I would rather HAVE one SHOULD I need it than NEED it and not HAVE one.”

The socialist will then ask you why you WOULD ever need one.

Answer…

“To protect myself, my family and my property from Tyranny or those who would do us harm.”

Pomposity will then query you as to what sort of “tyranny” you’re talking about.

Answer…

“Government tyranny either foreign or domestic.”

The “gun control” socialists will then try to be dismissive of you…Try to play you off as a fool and they will slightly chuckle as they ask: “Are you afraid of your government? Why would anybody be afraid of the government? You don’t REALLY think the government is your enemy do you???

The ONLY correct answer is…

“No. I have nothing to fear from my government. It’s the GOVERNMENT who, according to the founders and framers, should fear ME.”

And let’s be very, VERY clear on this point. These socialists and their socialist administration DO…INDEED…Fear the law abiding gun owners and THEY see those who own guns and adhere TO the 2nd Amendment as a THREAT to their ability to control the people or they wouldn’t be trying so desperately to BAN guns, ammo, clips and eventually…The 2nd Amendment itself.

THEY…THOSE IN POWER…FEAR US…THE LAW ABIDING GUN OWNERS OF AMERICA…AND THAT IS EXACTLY HOW IT SHOULD BE!!!

“When governments fear the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny.”  – Thomas Jefferson

Socialist: “So you REALLY think Obama’s going to go rogue? That’s absurd.”

Response: “This administration’s agenda and ideology is clear and Obama has, on several occasions, already subverted congress and has, on more than one occasion, subverted the Constitution BUT…Before you get dizzy from the altitude of the pedestal you seem to think you’re on…I believe ANY administration under ANY party has the ability to “go rogue” and I, per the Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, have EVERY right to bear arms against them should it EVER come to that.”

“I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of freedoms of the people by gradual and silent encroachment of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.” – James Madison

“A nation of well informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins.”  – Benjamin Franklin

At this point, it becomes a fair bet that the pompous socialist will try to shame you by dismissing you as uncaring.

Socialist gun control” advocate: “So it doesn’t bother you that children are getting killed in schools, in theaters, at the mall and on the streets? You want to leave these “killing machines” on the market instead of protecting children?”

The proper response: “Oh indeed I DO care about the children. I hope EVERY child has the opportunity to grow up and live in a FREE country where they too, can become responsible gun owners and protect the liberty and freedom of this great nation for THEIR children and their GRANDCHILDREN. Without the right to keep and bear arms, that would not be possible.”

None of this however, on the agenda of the left, is really meant for the children for, if it were, the above statement would ensure a free nation for generations to come. “Gun control” is about disarming those who would, if the need should arise, PROTECT freedom FROM those who would TAKE the guns away.

The “it’s for the children” line of crap is an old and far too worn false argument.

The world, for centuries, has been replete with those who have seen more tyranny and are far wiser that you, I and most certainly the “gun control” advocate and it would be best to defer to their words in response.

“Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.”  – C.S. Lewis

“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.”   – Plato

“Tyrants have always some slight shade of virtue; they support the laws before destroying them.”  - Voltaire

“The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience” – Albert Camus

“There is no crueler tyranny than that which is perpetuated under the shield of law and in the name of justice.” – Charles de Montesquieu

“Necessity, the tyrant’s plea” – John Milton

When the garden variety socialist tells you that “Nobody is trying to repeal the 2nd Amendment OR trying to take away anybody’s guns…Simply remind them of this…

On last Friday’s MSNBC show, Alex Wagner stated that exact thing.

“No one, anywhere, is talking about doing away with the Second Amendment, and no one, anywhere is advocating stripping away gun ownership.”

Precisely 2 years earlier on 1-11-11, Alex Wagner said THIS to Bill Maher:

“I think get rid of the second Amendment, the right to bear arms. I just think in the grand scheme of the rights that we have; the right of assembly, free speech, I mean, owning a gun does not, it does not tally on the same level as those other Constitutional rights.”

Ms. Wagner champions the 1st Amendment and wants the 2nd stricken without even BOTHERING to recognize that the 2nd Amendment actually protects HER 1st Amendment rights.

Thank GOD MS. Wagner is NOT in a position to SET policy however, she IS in a position, even with a terribly limited viewership, to express the agenda of her comrades and, as we ALL know, MSNBC IS the primary propaganda arm of the current administration.

The CURRENT administration…The Emperor…said he could NOT enact the “Dream Act” on his own and then DID so. He said Obamacare was NOT a tax and then…argued in the Supreme Court that it WAS. He said NOBODY making less than $250k would have their taxes raised and yet…He made SURE he raised taxes on 77% of Americans across the board. He made recess appointments when congress was NOT in recess, unilaterally decided that the Defense of Marriage Act would NOT be defended, by Executive Order made it against the law to use one’s right to free speech in protesting a president within earshot of the Secret Service and the list goes on.

Why should we believe one single word he or his pundits say when they claim nobody wants to do away with the 2nd Amendment or take away anybody’s guns?

This administration intends to start with semi-automatic rifles to which they incorrectly assign the title “assault weapon,” and “high capacity” clips NOT because they are responsible for the violence and killings but because those are the sort of weapons most likely to be used in the defense of freedom against tyranny and stark facts, compiled by the FBI, back this up.

In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618. In 2011, there were 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.

One is more likely to be beaten to death by an unregistered and unregulated device of mass construction than by a rifle of any kind.

IF they have any success against the means of freedom protection, socialists and this administration will then move against handguns and other firearms.

Remember…Once they force you to register each and every firearm you own, the government…ANY administration current or future of EITHER or ANY party will know exactly WHO owns a gun and WHERE they live. All the easier to go door to door and collect them.

And finally…the ever dismissive, demeaning and pompously pugnacious “gun control” advocate will try and tell you that the founders could not possibly have foreseen the advancement in weaponry and would certainly have not intended for the people to be armed with such weapons as they want banned.

HOGWASH!!!

“On every question of construction [of the Constitution], let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying

what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” — Thomas Jefferson (letter to William Johnson) June 12, 1823

“A well regulated Militia , being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”

The ONLY way in which the “gun control” advocate’s argument could be construed as valid would be IF We the People were armed with TODAY’S weapons and They the Government was armed with flintlock muskets and even then…The Founders and Framers CLEARLY meant that We the People were FREE to keep and bear arms to protect us from TYRANNY.

When they come for your guns, exercise control…Use both hands and…Give them the bullets first.

Socialists will say I’m advocating violence.

I’ll tell THEM that I’m promoting freedom….

Because we who cling to our bibles and guns will take our marching orders from those who gave BIRTH to this great nation rather of those who cling to “Rules for Radicals” and “gun control”and are deliberately trying to destroy it.

    I would like your permission to repost as a guest blog at the site above as well as CBC Conservative Outpost and about 30 others that I post on. This great work and really needs to be part of our dialogue when dealing with the gun grabbers.

    Keith…Feel Free to post a portion of the article with a link back to The National Patriot for the Full Article!!

    Thanks!!!

  3. Mike Brown Says:

    As usual Craig this is a great article and I will be reposting! Keep up the great work, it is a pleasure to read your thoughts!

  4. Capt-Dax Says:

    Obama Says, (Peasants should not be allowed to defend themselves)

  5. Sheila Says:

    Every horriffic mass murdering was commited by a person with mental illness. There is the problem, not the legal right to own guns. Nobody is going to be happy when privacy, confidential and Hippa laws must be opened for discussion. Anyone who has taken or is taking mood altering drugs of any kind, will need in depth investigation. Mental health professioinals will have to release the names of those who are on an edge and this is going to cause some heated debates. When does protecting a clients confidentiality interfer with protecting the children as well as law abiding citizens who have no history of mental illness, from tragedies like Sandy Hook.

  6. Karen Goetz Says:

    As Rush says…RIGHT ON! RIGHT ON! RIGHT ON!

    Your first paragraph is quote worthy, and I will quote it and link to the rest. SUPERB job!

    The last paragraph is sure to cause the powers that be to take notice. I am sure many of us are already on some list of Janet Napolitano’s. It’s sad when the government ceases to protect law abiding citizens and instead singles them out for persecution. It has happened over and over throughout history. Remember…Jesus broke no laws either.

  7. Linda Santucci Says:

    Excellent points made about a most important topic today, Craig.

    Another reason why a citizen should be able to own and “use” an AR-15, is because we know very well that if this issue triggers the long suppressed open warfare of another Civil REVOLUTION–the government troops (if they agree to fire on Americans) WILL be carrying them. Further, if no revolution is necessary by the time we get through these times, STILL–the criminals/terrorists WOULD have them, as well. SO–Citizens should not be barred legally from owning equal weapons and other arsenal supplies “should they become necessary” to protect family, friends, neighbors et al, as stated by our founders from the very beginning. It’s in the written debates, as well as in other official material left to us as Americans.

  8. George Adair Says:

    The sad thing Craig is that your first paragraph not only applies to the United States (my home country) but also to my adopted country to the north of you. Your articles are always a fine read and I have linked your articles several times to my friends. Keep upt he good work getting the word out.
