More Amerikan Firearms Foolishness
By Bernard Carmen
As our government continues to prove themselves unworthy of governance in our “land of the free” through their disobedience of its Constitutional limitations, I will continue to become more vocal about not only the unalienable right to Petition for Redress of Grievances, guaranteed by the First Amendment, but also the unalienable right to bear arms, guaranteed by the Second Amendment.
The logic is fairly simple. As far as I understand, We the People have 3 ways of control over our government:
1. The Ballot Box — as demonstrated, this has become corrupted through duopoly partisan ballot access legislation and the plurality voting system;
2. Petitioning for Redress of Grievances via the LAW — by its own example, the Federal Government, via the Judicial, Legislative, and Executive branches, have decided it does not have to obey the LAW, and because the majority of Americans live in fear of their government, they have not the will to withhold ALL monies claimed due to the State (which is the founders’ advice for peaceful resolution to tyranny);
3. Physical Resistance — when all else fails and tyranny oppresses a free people, the last resort is physical resistance. This is why the founders placed the guarantor of the unalienable right of a free person to bear arms as #2 in the Bill of Rights, directly after the ‘accountability clause’ of the 1st Amendment.
Knowing that control provisions #1 & #2 over the State are both failing due to blatant corruption, the only other recourse to tyranny besides running (and to where?) is to defend our personal liberties through armed resistance.
I hope and pray it never comes to that, but at this point in this state of tyranny where the State can pretty much do whatever it wills with NO consideration for the LAW, then how long before it all comes tumbling down?
I am certainly not going to rely on our Police & Sheriff departments to protect myself and my loved ones — it is up to We the People to maintain our freedom!
Apparently the mayor of Seattle disagrees with this concept, as he attempts to reduce violence through additional gun control.
“Following a shooting that injured three people at the Folklife Festival on May 24, Mayor Greg Nickels directed all City of Seattle departments to study the adoption and enforcement of policies, rules and contractual agreements which would prohibit the possession of dangerous weapons, including firearms on city property.”
Has it escaped the Seattle Mayor’s office attention about the recent terrorist attacks on unarmed civilians in India? I understand that government authorities are confused about the solution to thwart such random acts of terrorism.
CONFUSED? What’s there to be confused about? The answer is SIMPLE!
If we as concerned humans desire less acts of terrorism, and to decrease criminal violence in general, ARM THE CITIZENSHIP!
It’s really quite a simple equation. The facts are clear: the less the citizenship is armed, the more criminal activity persists.
I leave you with some quotes from some VERY anti-American quotes:
“This year will go down in history. For the first time a civilized nation has full gun registration! Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead into the future.” — Adolf Hitler, 1935
“Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” — Sara Brady, Chairman, Handgun Control (to Sen. Howard Metzanbaum, The National Educator, January 1994, Page 3)
Gun registration is not enough…Waiting periods are only a step. Registration is only a step. The prohibition of firearms is the goal. — Attorney-General Janet Reno, December 10th, 1993 (Associated Press)
Our ultimate goal- total control of handguns in the United States- is going to take time…The first problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns being produced…The second problem is to get handguns registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of handguns and all handgun ammunition- except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors- totally illegal. — Nelson Shields (Sarah Brady’s predecessor at HCI), New Yorker Magazine 7/26/76 p.53
Our goal is to not allow anybody to buy a handgun… The stated goal of the most active supporters of restrictions, aside from the “moderate” goals they often espouse in the heat of legislative battle, is to abolish gun ownership totally.” — Micheal K. Beard, President, Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, Washington Times, December 9, 1993
