So Long as We the People Control the Gun, We the People Will Control Our Government

“The Battle of Bunker Hill” by John Trumbull

Ah, gun control ― one of the great debates of our time — the debate of course regarding the age-old questions with answers long-since provided. The spirit of the Second Amendment is not only unambiguous, but void of semantical validity. Such inquiries include: Should guns be legal to own?  Does the ownership of guns serve as a deterrent to tyranny?  By owning guns, does this make Americans safer from violent crime?  Finally, is the Second Amendment obsolete or quite to the contrary?

As a good conservative, need I waste precious syllables on my answers to questions bothering the Left so?

With the exception of the Brady Crime Bill President Bill Clinton rammed through Congress in 1994 the status of the Second Amendment has remained mostly unscathed. In December 2012 however, the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting allegedly transpired, prompting many liberals to take action to curtail liberties for all Americans by calling for expanded background checks, a national firearms registry and a ban on a class of semi-automatic rifles. Of course we conservatives, led by the National Rifle Association (NRA), stood our ground. And though Republicans in the Senate voted to block passage of post-Sandy Hook gun control legislation, the attempt by Democrats to engage in this was the first of many future measures to undermine the American Dream. As Saul Alinsky imparted upon ACORN disciples like Barack Obama, never let a good crisis real or manufactured go to waste. So desperate is Obama to exploit a false positive, he illegally signed the United Nations (UN) Arms Treaty on December 24, 2014. Aside his innate corruption as any anticolonialist bigot from Africa living on the South Side of Chicago while we watch angst-ridden news of disturbing trends as part of Operation: Jade Helm 15, he at least admits his grotesque incompetence by attempting to hand over We the People’s sovereignty to the UN.

Democrats frequently assault the Constitution by crafting legislation in such fashions that there appears a system of laws for them as elitists and one for their intended serfs strongly resembling British Common Law. The British government has no true hard-copy constitution, but rather a list of laws built upon many others on the merits of their tradition. Democrats would love nothing more than to invoke hard common law. They could then pass legislation with total impunity. There would be no systems of checks and balances such are present in the Constitution. The purpose for the Founding Fathers in creating the Constitution was simple: to limit government overbearance through federal republicanism. The Constitution’s system of checks and balances balance delicately between three branches of government, accompanied crucially by a list of ten guaranteed rights intended never to be violated by the likes of them.

Our forefathers accepted the Constitution as its social contract binding our elected employees to govern judiciously. Americans were also far more independent during the first century of the republic than today. An article by Bill Fortenberry of The Federalist Papers describes the phenomena behind the great change in the American people’s expectations of government’s role. Americans in the early republic were keenly aware of civic responsibilities and therefore performed these duties without question as to their importance. They knew government constrained by the contents of the Constitution provide the greatest chance of the preservation of their liberties. The Bill of Rights guarantee liberty for all from government tyranny.  

America was founded upon the principles of God, gold, and glory. The first permanent settlement in British America was in 1607 at Jamestown, Virginia for the purpose of cultivating tobacco. Thirteen years later, Plymouth, Massachusetts was established by English separatists for the purpose of religious liberty, and for over 400 years, Americans have lived by this creed. The one binding characteristic of these settlements is what made it possible for their establishment: the presence of firearms to provide the greatest deterrent against tyranny.

In the New World during the 17th Century, owning firearms was a necessity. There were no previously-built cities, towns or villages awaiting new settlers. The first societies in British America relied on their abilities to hunt and cultivate land. Settlers had to defend the colony against Indian raids. The foundation of America occurred due largely to religious persecution, seeking to settle in a new land in which to achieve economic success for the individual. And all this was possible because men bore their rifles and muskets (guns) to hunt and protect their families and property.

The Spirit of ‘76 has waned slowly ever since. Americans now identify more with the principles of the French Revolution than its inspiration, ours, the first of its kind in human history. Let us never forget either that brave patriots fought to secure our blessings of liberty inscribed in our Constitution and Bill of Rights include the Second Amendment right to bear arms, which the Founders considered a natural right of man.

(Now, we have never armed bears just so you know, but chimpanzees were just granted the same privilege of habeas corpus as human beings by the New York Supreme Court.)

John Adams wrote to Thomas Jefferson explaining his opinion of what were the key differences in philosophy between the two key pivotal events in the history of Western civilization.

“No man is more sensitive than I am of the service to science and letters, humanity, fraternity, and liberty, that would have been rendered by the encyclopedists and economists, by Voltaire, D’Alembert, Buffon, Diderot, Rousseau, La Lande, Frederic and Catherine, if they had possessed common sense… And what was their philosophy?  Atheism, — pure, unadulterated atheism.  Diderot, D’Alembert, Frederic, La Lande, and Grimm, were indubitable atheists. The universe was master only, and eternal.  Spirit was a word without meaning.  Liberty was a word without meaning.  There was no liberty in the universe; liberty was a word void of sense.  Every thought, word, passion, sentiment, feeling, all motion and action was necessary.  All beings and attributes were of eternal necessity; conscience, fate, were all nothing but fate.  This was their creed, and this was to perfect human nature, and convert the earth into a paradise of pleasure.”

In the same letter, Adams explained why French revolutionaries failed to establish their will of an atheist society when he said, “…they had not considered the force of early education on the minds of millions, who had never heard of their society.”  He also said “The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence, were… the general principles of Christianity and the general principles of English and American liberty.”  

Shortly after the American Revolution, James Wilson, a signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, taught his law students this important fundamental principle.

That law, which God has made for man in his present state; that law, which is communicated to us by reason and conscience, the divine monitors within us, and by the sacred oracles, the divine monitors without us.  This law has gone through several subdivisions, and has been known by distinct appellations, according to the different way in which it has been promulgated,  and the different objects which it respects.  As promulgated by reason and the moral sense, it has been called natural; as promulgated by the holy scriptures it has been called revealed law… That our Creator has a supreme right to prescribe a law for our conduct, and we are under the most perfect obligation to obey that law, are truths established on the clearest and most solid principles… Human law must rest its authority, ultimately, upon the authority of that law, which is divine.

Two members of the fraternity of America’s Founders confirmed their non-revisionist truth: the key plank of our great republic’s foundation is manifest destiny, our inalienable right to life and property begetting our happiness. Thus the majority of Americans identify with the element of the French Revolution that deflowered the old society of its duty to live responsibly. Faith in God requires constant attention to detail and much practice, as the platform upon which God’s authority begets to all liberty and the rights of man is in fact, “the laws of nature and Nature’s God”. Americans see in their mirrors Jean-Jacques Rousseau (The Social Contract,1762), not Jefferson nor De Tocqueville.

In order then that the social compact may not be an empty formula, it tacitly includes the undertaking, which alone can give force to the rest, that whoever refuses to obey the general will shall be compelled to do so by the whole body. This means nothing less than that he will be forced to be free; for this is the condition which, by giving each citizen to his country, secures him against all personal dependence. In this lies the key to the working of the political machine; this alone legitimises civil undertakings, which, without it, would be absurd, tyrannical, and liable to the most frightful abuses.

All the sacrifices of America’s patriots, minutemen and every soldier have since been forgotten. Few grasp the very essences over which those audacious British colonials fought the bloody American Revolution and won. Today, atheism drives a collectivized ethos as opposed to the two qualities about which Fortenberry discussed.  This culture was fostered meticulously over the past 50 years by those who learned the French revolutionaries failed to account how the French people ― peasants, sans culottes, or the figures making up the First, Second, and Third Estates ― were devout Catholics.  The American Atheists promise contemporary Americans a society free of God and all moral restrictions in rejecting responsibilities to neighbors and our families Christianity teaches are our sacred duties.  It is no coincidence these platforms promoted by the American Atheists are supported by Democrats who control the bulk of the media and, therefore, the cultural dynamics of America favoring rape, human trafficking, pedophilia, eugenics, organized crime, gang warfare and slavery in perpetuating the continuity of Jim Crow-era statutes.

The American Atheists tainted the fundamental directives of the Constitution ― the free exercise of one’s religion ― in launching its design for a total revocation of the right to choice to suit their own devious agenda. This is typical for all left-wing lunatic fringes to bastardize liberty by separating justice from the law, always applying the art of semantics in achieving what is antithetical to their original intent.  Atheists like Madalyn Murray O’Hair killed the right for subsequent public school children to choose to pray as the inches granted have expanded beyond the U.S. Supreme Court rulings in Engel v. Vitale and Abingdon School District v. Schempp. Throughout the past two generations, they successfully forced federal courts to remove Judeo-Christian likenesses due to the fallacy it violates the Establishment Clause. As socialists never acknowledge the existence of morality, they instead wage war on the American Dream by bastardizing our heritage while denying their past, only to argue for the sake of agreement. We must therefore preserve the Second Amendment because for true Americans, our God grants our liberty and the rights to life and the happiness of a property-owning democracy, not Washington or the UN. Our power is wielded by the barrels of our guns; government is slowly taking it away. They are our government, our employees, and we are the scales of justice balancing our Constitution’s checks when our government violates the rule of law we voted for them to create and enforce.
