Americans Arming Themselves With Coming Ban On Guns

In 1833, thirty-four year member of the Supreme Court Joseph Story wrote: “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic.”

That “palladium of liberties” has never been exercised more frequently than during the four years Barack Hussein Obama has been in the White House. According to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), “…the top 10 record gun sales days have occurred since Barack Obama’s election in 2008, and gun ownership has skyrocketed over the last four years.”

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) reports that in 1944 there were approximately 192 million firearms owned by 44 million Americans. By the end of 1996, the ATF reports that “…approximately 242 million firearms were available for sale to or were possessed by civilians in the United States.”  In 2007, that number had increased to 294 million. Clearly there are now well over 300 million firearms in the hands of  American citizens, all thanks to concern that the far-left Administration is a threat to 2nd Amendment and other rights of the American people.

A week ago, Mark Alexander of The Patriot Post was asked “…if Patriots have an obligation to arm themselves — to be gun owners, and be proficient at the use of arms.” He responds by saying it is “self-evident” that Liberty is an “unalienable right,” innately assured as “endowed by our creator…” That is, “it is not awarded by men or government; it is the birthright of all people.”

Throughout history, countless individuals have assaulted those rights “…using the power of government to arbitrarily revoke Liberty and invoke tyranny…” In defense of that liberty, James Madison wrote in the Federalist # 46, that “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition.”

Barack Obama has proven himself a would-be dictator in virtually every executive order and end-run around the authority of the Congress. But his ambition for unlimited presidential power can only be fully realized upon the disarming of the American public. Understanding this, millions of Americans have armed themselves in anticipation of an eventual, outright ban on gun ownership.

But as Americans, are we compelled to do more than just own firearms? Are we also obligated, as a result of our unique heritage, to use those weapons against any force which threatens the annihilation of our rights and liberty?

Two hundred and forty years ago, approximately one third of colonists took up arms against the British, one third joined the Brits against the revolution and the rest remained neutral. After two centuries of American history and the death of countless men in battle for the preservation of the rights and liberty earned in the Revolution, the time for neutrality or for joining those who would destroy that liberty is over.

Just as millions of arms have been collected in anticipation of an Obama led assault on our God-given rights, it is incumbent upon Americans to use those arms when the time comes. Those who refuse to do so will no longer be Americans, they will be the enemy.

  1. I have never owned a gun im my life but I am going out to buy some and lots of amo I will be shooting targets till I am good at hitting what I aim at no one will take my guns away from me

    • You will find ammo back ordered for months, double or triple priced, but good luck. You should have woke up years ago.

  2. Why you should never let the government take away your right to bear arms.

    First, it gets hot,

    Second it is the equivalent of getting tied up with rope. According to a famous soldier NEVER EVER let them tie you up during a robbery, etc. YOU MUST FIGHT FOR YOUR LIFE at that time!

    Once they get you tied up you are completely at their mercy and uninhibited violence.

    obamA and Fienstein or Frankenstein is now doing the eqivalent of tie you up with rope by making laws where no American can own a decent gun. The law they want seems to disarm the weapons themselves leaving you practically with a useless weapon.

    This fits the agenda of liberals that they only bring humas misery and suffering. Imagine a peashooter for you when you really need to defend yourself.

    YES! WE ARE ARMED! AND READY TO FIGHTN THIS TIRENT.
    THIS IS A FREE REPUBLIC, NOT A DEMOCRASY! AND NO COMMUNISTS NOR LIBERALS CAN HOLD OFFICE LEGALLY, BECAUSE: " THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN THE CONSTITUTION. THEY SHOUD HAVE READ IT. BEFORE THEY SWORE TO ABIDE AND PROTECT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION!
    WHAT DID THEY THINK, THAT THIS IS JUST AN OTHER GOVERNMENT THAT THEY AND THEIR LEADER SOROS CAN TAKE OVER? WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE GOVERNMENT YOU JUST REPRISENT US! NOT LEAD US! "YOU ARE FIRED!"

    Today 20 children were attacked and killed in their school, 27 poeople altogether, the shooter killed hi Mother and his Father before he started, the guns he used belonged ot his mOM, semi automatic and a Glock, last week I read they wanted ot start confiscating guns, can't help but wonder if this is the sdame mind control as the shooter in the theater,. I honestly believe this Government would do anything ot get what they want. They wanted Unions out so they created these right to work states and jobs, tyhrowing people out on the street because their pensions will be gone , not enough people paying in, we paid in for 30 years, this has nothing to do with the Gov. People vote on Unions, if everyone says yes its yes. my money is gone, social security will be next and I willl be a ward of th estagte and none of this is the Gov. money. time to file a lot of lawsuits folks.
