Gun Control – It Is Time To End It ALL.

If you don’t know by now, I’ll say plain: ALL gun control violates the Second Amendment of our Constitution. Every. Single. Law. I’ve said this from the start and I stand by it now.

The wording of the Second Amendment is clear: it says our right to keep and bear arms “cannot be infringed”. Forget the nonsensical straw-man arguments about “militias”. Forget the idiots spouting about “sporting” or “hunting” purposes. In fact, forget about any purpose at all.

Our founding fathers used guns to free our emerging not-quite a nation from the oppressive rule of the British. Compared to what we citizens endure today under our “free” nation, King George was a pussycat. And yet they fought – and died – and eventually emerged victorious. Then came the actual founding, the documentation – our Constitution for the United States of America and those pesky amendments.

They knew the score. Our founding fathers themselves were intended victims of gun control. Instead of bending their knees, literally, to the King, they took up forbidden arms. No doubt the horrors of the battles they fought, the abuse they endured under their British rulers, was forefront in their minds. Never again. No matter what. Many of them, our first president George Washington included, openly stated a distrust for any, and I do mean ANY, government body exercising too much power. With all this in mind they made on thing clear – our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed!

Some may call this a moment of weakness, others a moment of strength. I say it was a moment of divine clarity. This document, this constitution, became the law of our land by the direct influence and gifting of God Almighty. It was not they who “granted” these rights to all citizens it was God Himself. Our founding fathers, the authors of the Constitution were more scribe than author. As they previously proved with the blood of their compatriots, these rights belonged to us all along.

Subsequent events weakened us. In the aftermath of the “Civil War” or the “War of Northern Aggression”, call it what you will, laws were passed against gun ownership in several states. Most of these were to prevent blacks from arming themselves. Surely there were others passed for other reasons. This is not a history lesson, merely an opinion on personal observations and understanding. As our nation grew, many events led to the eventual passing of the National Firearms Act of 1934 – the landmark legislation that opened the floodgates for nationwide gun legislation.

Even then, the lawmakers knew they could not get away with infringing upon our God-given Second Amendment rights with any direct infringement. So what did they do? They acted like any spineless, slimy politician – they gaslighted the American public by calling it a “tax law”. Elbow, elbow, wink, wink and all that rot. This final piece of putrid deception was built upon fear. Fears of wild gangsters spewing lead in the streets – raining devastation upon innocent citizens. Of course they failed to mention these gangsters derived most of their power and wealth from trading in alcohol. It was the politicians’ own Prohibition act that fomented this black market. So, ironically, the class of criminals this legislation was aimed at was the one group who could well afford a $200 tax on a submachine gun.

From the first Supreme Court challenge to the present day, all branches of our government have ducked and weaved around the basic issue – they have no authority at all to restrict the rights of us law-abiding citizens from owning, carrying, and/or using arms – firearms, and yes, even “military grade” firearms. Zero. Zip. I have yet to see a single paragraph of legislation on any level that passes the “shall not be infringed” litmus test when applied to any honest, law-abiding citizen. And yet, here we are, wading through a myriad of legal mines, as our nation has become exactly that: a minefield. It needs to end.

Another irony – while so much of the angst of today’s gun control freaks is focused on scary black rifles, or any firearm capable of accepting “large capacity” magazines – often called “assault weapons” or “weapons of war” in an effort to compare them to military-grade firearms – they turn a blind eye to the original, and still often held dictum that suitability for military use is one of the standards deemed critical to our Second Amendment right. Even more strange is this very fact should be grounds to automatically reject the National Firearms Act of 1934 as inherently unconstitutional on this very basis.

Compounding this irony is a recent ruling by a Federal judge no less, that illegal aliens have the right to keep and bear arms under our Second Amendment. What?! While I do not necessarily disagree with the ruling, it comes with loads of baggage. First and foremost is depicted in the meme below.

It is madness. Nothing more, nothing less and it needs to stop. As citizens – honest, hard-working, law-abiding citizens, we need to put our foot down. We need to demand an end to the rabid, illegal, raping of our God-given rights under our Constitution. No more. If they don’t like it, well, too bad. As citizens, they have just as much right as anyone to propose our Constitution be amended. Unless and until that happens, our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
