“To be prepared for war is one of the most effective means of preserving peace.”
– President George Washington
America knows that one great obstacle this criminal administration is trying to get over is the disarming of the American people. If it is not President Barack Hussein Obama blaming the American people for the crimes he and his administration are responsible for committing in Mexico, then it is his sidekick, Attorney General Eric Holder, trying to teach the media to brainwash America’s young.
In concert they have an ally and fellow minion, the relentless criminal from New York, former Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is assaulting the second amendment rights of those in other states within our union.
If only the American people would take the time to pull back the curtain on these criminals, we would find that they are neck deep in crimes against “We the People.” We would find that we have an outlaw wanting to rule the law abiders by any means necessary.
The Second Amendment states:
“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 [broken, violated].”
There are certain criminal politicians that know they cannot get through the front door, so they attempt to come through in another way – namely, through their own interpretation. They say that it is only for the “militia” to bear arms. We are also told (through the state-run media, of course) that our modern-day military is the “militia.”
But are they really? Who are the militia? Aren’t they we the people?
Congress has no power to disarm the militia.
“Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American. … [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”
– Tenche Coxe, Delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress, The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.
Instead of highlighting dictators and their deceptive methods in disarming their people right before a mass genocide, let’s take look at what some of our Founding Fathers said about guns, the average citizen’s right to own them and who the militia really was and is.
“Arms in the hands of the citizens may be used at individual discretion for the defense of the country, the overthrow of tyranny or private self-defense.”
“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.”
“When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, 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…
“The people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well Regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free State. …”
He goes on, “I ask, who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people. …”
Friends, our forefathers did not arm the American people for the purpose of hunting, but rather to protect themselves from those who were doing the hunting: namely in their time, the tyrant King George.
The Second Amendment is only to vouchsafe our right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness and to ensure all of the other rights given unto us by our Creator. The wisdom of the framers of the Constitution is found consistent with lessons from the Bible that they used as their bedrock for civil law. The people’s individual protection should always be a primary concern for a government “of the people.”
In a righteous country, self-government reigns by the constraint of Christian morals. The civil government that desires such a monopoly of force (i.e. they are the only ones with guns) is a threat to the lives, liberty and property of its citizens. This government ceases to be “of and for the people.”
President George Washington said:
“From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.”
