It’s Time Patriots Declare Victory In The 2nd Amendment War

second amendment SC It’s time patriots declare Victory in the 2nd Amendment war

Though it’s doubtful anyone will hear much about it, neither lawmakers, judges, or even a president has the constitutional authority to infringe upon the inalienable right of the American people to keep and bear arms.

One hundred thirty eight years ago, the Supreme Court wrote that the right to keep and bear arms “…is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence.”

The case was United States v. Cruikshank; and the Court made it clear that the right to keep and bear arms is an inalienable right, God-given and independent of any mandatory approbation by men or their laws for its force and legitimacy.

The Founders were so certain as to the absolute nature of these inalienable rights in the Bill of Rights that Alexander Hamilton suggested in Federalist No. 84 that it was unnecessary even to make them a part of the written Constitution. “For why declare that things shall not be done which there is no power to do,” he wrote, clear in his assertion that men have no authority to meddle with rights deriving from God and nature.

All these years later, the Court has not changed its attitude about the inalienable rights of the American people. In the majority opinion of D.C. v Heller, the Court states that the 2nd Amendment “codifies” the pre-existing right to keep and bear arms; it does not “give” us that right. “[I]t has always been widely understood that the Second Amendment, like the First and Fourth Amendments, codified a pre-existing right. The very text of the Second Amendment implicitly recognizes the pre-existence of the right and declares only that it “shall not be infringed.”

Yet for decades, it has been the aim of gun-banning lawmakers and left-wing jurists to transform the 2nd Amendment into a nonsensical hodgepodge.  Children are killed by a psychopath, and the left is pleased to claim that “assault weapons” must be responsible and should therefore be banned. “High capacity” magazines are deemed unnecessary for hunting, and this somehow means they must be outlawed. Individuals thought to be  “too dedicated” to the Constitution are accused of being potential domestic terrorists; and for some unknown reason, Libertarians and veterans are not to be trusted as gun owners. It’s an extraordinary mix of non sequiturs designed to add confusion to the 27 word 2nd Amendment.

Well, the Founders of this nation saw nothing complicated about the right of the American people to keep and bear arms; for theirs was a lesson of cruel experience learned from the British enemy during the Revolution. The British knew that disarming the colonies would mean an end to any war, and they focused all of their efforts on the capture of weapons, powder and ball. Surely this is a concept simple enough even for Dianne Feinstein—disarm an enemy, and they will become the easy prey of a would-be tyrant.

For the Founders, the right to keep and bear arms became nothing more complicated than “…the right of armed self-defense against tyranny.” Indeed, that was the purpose of the right as later expressed in the 2nd Amendment. And in spite of the best efforts of modern hoplophobes and would-be tyrants to confuse the issue, it has not changed to this day.

It’s past time for American patriots to tell the left that issues concerning the right to keep and bear arms were decided long ago and in our favor. We will tolerate no further aggression against our inalienable right to defend our families, our lives, and our property from the treachery of thieves, liars, and tyrants who populate the Democrat Party.

To paraphrase Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars: “If you don’t try to steal our guns, we won’t kill you.” What could be fairer than that?!

  1. Time to end americas membership in this wretched UNITED NATIONS time to evict the UN from america and tear up all those worthless UN treaties

  2. There's another Supreme Court Ruling that we need to be aware of and understand
    “All codes, rules and regulations are applicable to the government authorities only, not human/Creators in accordance with God’s laws. All codes, rules and regulations are unconstitutional and lacking in due process …” Rodriques v Ray Donavan (U.S. Department of Labor), 769 F. 2d 1344, 1348 (1985)
    That's right, all codes, rules, and regulations created by our Public Servants are unconstitutional and of no force or effect on We, the People.
    They only apply to government employees.
    The Supreme Court has also admitted that:
    Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it ;;; No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” 16 Am Jur 2nd Section 177
    If we just took the time to learn our own laws and to force them upon our public servants we would be out the mess we find ourselves in.

    • disgusted says:

      Maybe we should learn how to tell these bastards and female bastards, NO! you CANNOT HAVE OUR GUNS OR OUR WEAPONS OF SELF DEFENSE! Maybe THEY should learn, or relearn, the meaning of NO! What letter in that two letter word DO THEY NOT UNDERSTAND? NO MEANS NO! And it is clear, crystal clear, to me anyway, what this “NO YOU CANNOT TAKE OUR GUNS!!!,” means! Which letter in the sentence do these idiots not get? IF we who own guns stand up and make it clearer than a mountain stream that we will NEVER SURRENDER OUR GUNS, then we stand a chance of keeping our freedom of not only self defense, but also, our freeom of speech………..which is also under attack, from those who insist on being so “politically correct”! So “correct” even, that the word ILLEGAL “should not be said” to those who are most sincerely, and definately IN OUR COUNTRY ILLEGALLY!!! And we can’t even call a SPADE A SPADE! Well, what IS, IS! And ILLEGAL IS ILLEGAL, as WELL AS A SPADE IS ALSO A SPADE! We MUST NEVER SURRENDER ANYTHING THAT IS AS AMERICAN AS A GUN! God, Guns and Guts are what made our country what she became, and it will be GOD, GUNS AND GUTS, OUR GUTS, which KEEP AMERICA FREE FROM THE LIKES OF THIS EVIL MU SLIME IN OFFICE!!!!!!!!!

        You go girl and maybe we should start marching and making our reps work for us.It helped those iggers when they marched in Selma and Washington just look they're untouchable all they have to do is cry racist and the whites cower and shake.We must learn from the blacks on how to do things to get your way.The only reason Obutthole got to be president is because he made white people feel guilty.

  3. Harold Toledo Ohio says:

    The 2nd Amendment is supposed to be "untouchable". I was, until the mofia moved into the Whitehouse and headed by Barack Obama. For almost four years I've heard and have seen nothing but total lying, crookedness, total disrespect to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitlution, Benghazi, to name a few from Barack Obama. He should've been impeached 20 times by not, but nobody has done anything. Just complain! When will he ever be held accountable for all his corruption??

  4. Like is this a joke??? We are now questioning the constitution…

  5. Whatever bill or law or edict they pass, it is illegal.

    To make gun bans are fair the president must now depend on knife wielding secret service. Police may only have knives, batons, and tazers. Those people who don't conform to laws; will pretty much control the country.

    See how long that will last.

  6. Seeks_the_truth says:

    "Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941 – a date which will live in infamy – the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan."
    Remember these historic words? I bet you do. A patriotic American almost knows this speech by heart.

    Let's fast forward and listen to Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, who was head of the attack at Pearl Harbor, as he's instructed to invade the American Mainland:
    “You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.”

    If you have to ask what is wrong with a gun ban, go back and review history. What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?
