The 2ND amendment does not protect your right to hunt!
Bernie Sanders, senator and democrat candidate for president recently said that guns “not designed for hunting” should not be owned by citizens. Well then, why was the 2nd Amendment written, to allow citizens to own muskets or single shot hunting rifles so we can shoot a squirrel, rabbit, deer, or varmint and for the type of firearm we can own to be determined by politicians? Let me quote from the Constitution: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed”.
Now for a history lesson for those ignorant of history or willfully ignoring same; At that time in history the common weapon for military and civilian alike was the musket, equal weapons for both military and civilian use. The Revolutionary War didn’t start because of the Stamp Act or the forced housing of British soldiers in citizen’s homes or even the murder of unarmed civilians in the Boston Massacre. War broke out when General Gage sent troops to Lexington and Concord to seize arms, including cannons, muskets, powder, and shot from the colonial storage areas and to disarm the farmers. The colonists resisted and the war was on when “the shot heard ’round the world” was fired on April 19, 1775 at Lexington Green. By the time it was over on the green 8 colonists lay dead but by the end of the day hundreds of British soldiers were dead from colonist ambushes and the munitions stores were safely in the hands of the colonial militia. The war would last 11 years, ending in 1787, and cost thousands of lives on both sides, but a nation predicated on liberty and citizen control of government was established in 1791, based on Judeo-Christian principles of righteousness and self rule.
England tried again in 1812 to subjugate the American nation and failed due to patriots taking up their arms and fighting to preserve the liberty won by them a mere two decades before. Some say that the only weapons allowed under the Constitution are those provided by the government and issued to registered Militia members when the government deems it necessary but that is an attempt to bastardize the intent of the founders. The founders knew the danger of a central government and wanted citizens to be able to defend themselves from a tyrannical government so they wrote the second Amendment as they did to preserve the ability of citizens to defend themselves from enemies within as well as from without. Notice the 2nd Amendment does not say what kind of gun can or cannot be owned nor for what purposes they can or cannot be used, they wrote that the right of people to keep and bear arms “shall not” be infringed. Shall not is a very specific statement, not ambiguous in the least, and written that way on purpose by very intelligent and honorable men, unlike the vermin that occupy government today.
When the Constitution had been written and he was asked what kind of government they gave us, Benjamin Franklin responded: “a republic, if you can keep it”. The federal government started “infringing” our rights in the 1920’s in response to the gangster era. How many gangsters followed the laws under penalty of arrest? Let me guess, none? Now to today, how many black or hispanic gang members obey the laws on the books now? Look at where gun crimes happen and who commits them. It isn’t people like myself, the targets of the gun control crowd, that commit crimes with guns so why are we the targets of unconstitutional restrictions on gun possession? Patriots who believe in government of the people, by the people, and for the people are the ones politicians seek to disarm, why? The answer can be found in 20th Century history. In that 100 year time frame more than 56 million people were first disarmed, then slaughtered by their own governments.
Our founders made that calamity unlikely in the USA by wording the 2nd Amendment to prevent that from happening but today’s politicians see themselves as smarter than the founders. However, it isn’t smarts or wisdom, it is a hunger for power that they feel entitled to by their positions in government. Barak Obama and those like him see themselves as rulers, who should be bowed to and obeyed without question, but that isn’t in the DNA of American citizens.
Crime will never be prevented by oppressing those who aren’t committing the crimes but that is the lame reasons given by anti-liberty politicians who seek to subjugate We the People by rendering us defenseless. I firmly believe the goal of the gun grabbers is to make themselves omnipotent and safe to carry out their quest to gain absolute power over the citizens of this nation and to be able to rule as did Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, and other dictators who were able to murder citizens at will because there could be no armed opposition. The current buzz phrase of tyrants is “common sense gun control” meaning government can decide what, if any, kind of firearm can be owned and who, if anyone, can own them. This seemingly innocuous terminology is being used to lull citizens into a false sense of security so they will willingly and meekly subjugate themselves to royal rulers. We can already see how well that works by looking at where gun violence is prevalent. If “common sense gun control” worked, Chicago would be the safest place in the nation to live but it isn’t. Chicago has the highest gun murder rate in the nation despite being a “gun free zone”. If the existence of guns is the problem why do we never hear of a massacre at a gun show where thousands of people gather to peruse, buy, and sell hundreds of thousands of guns of all kinds and all calibers? People also buy ammunition for those guns in the same building so why aren’t there multiple murders at every gun show? My wife and I attend as many as 8 gun shows a year and find the people we interact with to be friendly, courteous, and totally without malice. Many shows are so crowded that getting bumped into or stepped on is a common thing but we never see any animosity. One apologizes, the other forgives and they move on. It is the people that make the difference, not the availability of guns and ammo. When you look at real statistics, the states with concealed carry have less gun crime than the “gun free” states. Criminals know where to ply their trade and getting shot by an armed “victim” is not their goal so they avoid such places. The theater shooter in Colorado, as in most other mass murders, passed up a half dozen closer theaters to hit one that had a no-gun policy, knowing no one could shoot him so what does that say?
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Bernie Sanders isn’t interested in the health or safety of the people, he is truly only interested only in rule over the people. It amazes me that people who can’t control themselves or their own lives demand to control everyone else.
SCIENCE, very true!!!!! gun control isn’t about safety of We the People it is about guns, it is about control of We the People. they will have to kill me because I will never give up my guns!!!!!
“All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party.” (Mao Tse Tung Problems of War and Strategy, Nov 6 1938, published in “Selected Works of Mao Zedong,” 1965)
“AMERICA IS BANKRUPT
“Later, when I went to visit the judge, I told him of my problem with the Supreme Court cases dealing with Public Policy rather than the Public Law. He said, “In 1938, all the higher judges, the top attorneys and the U.S. attorneys were called into a secret meeting and this is what we were told:
” ‘America is a bankrupt nation – it is owned completely by its creditors. The creditors own the Congress, they own the Executive, they own the Judiciary and they own all the state governments.
” ‘Take silent judicial notice of this fact, but never reveal it openly. Your court is operating in an Admiralty Jurisdiction – call it anything you want, but do not call it Admiralty….
“But the bankers said it is not expedient at this time to admit that they own everything and could foreclose on every nation of the world. The reason they don’t want to tell everyone that they own everything is that there are still too many privately owned guns. There are uncooperative armies and other military forces. So until they can gradually consolidate all armies into a WORLD ARMY and all courts into a single WORLD COURT, it is not expedient to admit the jurisdiction the courts are operating under…”
12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have NOT YET RECEIVED A KINGDOM. but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. 13 They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings—and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers.”
My understanding of all of this is that same simple fact that our founders understood. Individual rights must ultimately be protected by the individuals thru control of their government!
The beats with 7 heads and 10 horns is the one world government – 7 heads representative of tyrannical empire of the past. The 10 kings are the hidden world Financiers – those who own the world banks! It is no accident the Bible says that you will have to have the mark of the beast to buy or sell. Economics is the big “secret” of the end times message! For the past 100 years we have been made completely dependent upon centralized “hunting and gathering” technology. Our food, our health our heat our mode of transportation – everything is dependent upon institutions that can be controlled by a few people… Universally…
I think it was one of the Rothchildes who said (paraphrased) I don’t care who runs a country as long as I control the money”
All these liberal Utopianites who think they are going to create a universal sustainable world where everybody is sooooooo happy….? Have no idea what is coming down on them. Do we believe these 10 “kings” are going to embrace even Communism? Except these days be cut short no man will be left alive!
Let him who has ears, hear….
Derrell, very astute observations. Do you know that “law” schools not only don’t teach the Constitution, they don’t even have the students read it. They teach “case law”, meaning each judicial decision is based on a previous decision regardless of the validity of that decision. In our current legal system the Constitution is irrelevant unless it can be perverted to allow a criminal to go free. That is why I have called for the federal government to be abolished.
I believe the Book of Revelation is very soon to come to pass.
Yes Bob, I am aware they don’t even reads the Constitution in law school any more. They cannot Teach the Constitution because it is above precedence! Because it IS Precedence
While they don’t teach the Constitution in Law School they do teach our children in public school that the 2A says “The People shall have the right to bear arms only when they are in an organized Militia”.
Here is the thing about Lies; Lies depend upon the Truth in order to even exist. But Truth – which can be described as a force much like gravity – will exist even if everything else in the universe is suddenly gone. I mean everything!! If every thing is gone then would not this statement “there is Nothing” still be true?
The Truth never looses! Ever! Oh it may seem so for a time but in the end all things must be true! Think of gravity again. You can hold an object in your hand from falling all of your life but when you fail Gravity is there to take the object back. You cannot rationalize gravity out of existence! Neither can you rationalize Truth away. It will be there when you fail!
The communist, liberal, socialist, liars have never been able to accomplish any of their goals by speaking the truth! They have only lies, deceit, and trickery to work with because their doctrine is a LIE! And they WILL fail!
We no longer have a Federal Government because we no longer have a federation – that is what the federal government was for – to preside over this Federal Republic of States to protect and Guarantee its sovereignty! We have a Central Bureaucratic government and it most definitely needs to be disbanded!! It is so illegal the American people should rise up and arrest everyone in the government – elected or appointed – and impeach and try them for GROSS Treason! Those found Guilty – according to the Constitution – should be hanged!!
