The Second Amendment is About Fighting Tyranny

What is the real issue at hand concerning the attempted raping of the Second Amendment rights of American citizens?  Is it really about preventing more violence or protecting our children?  Or is it something else completely different being hidden under the guise of preventing violence.

Here is Obama’s understanding of the Second Amendment:

I, like most Americans, believe that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual the right to bear arms.  We have a strong tradition of gun ownership in this country and the vast majority of gun owners act responsibly…”

We recognize the traditions of gun ownership that passes on from generation to generation, that hunting and shooting are part of a cherished national heritage.”

In a dangerous mass brainwashing campaign, President Barack Obama has been telling the nation that the Second Amendment is all about hunters and hunting.  The reason he is doing that is because so many Americans today abhor hunting and will get behind his efforts to start banning guns and ammunition.  I’m actually surprised he’s not running scenes from Bambi where Bambi’s father gets shot by a hunter.

Obama doesn’t want you to know that the Second Amendment was written by our Founding Fathers purposely to help us be able to fight tyranny from the government like they had to with Great Britain.  Had the colonists not been armed and owned weapons in nearly every home, they would never have had a chance for freedom and we would all be hailing the Queen instead of Obama.

George Mason, along with James Madison are considered to be the Fathers of the Bill of Rights.  Two of my favorite quotes from Mason are:

"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials."

And:

" ... to disarm the people - that was the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

Those two statements from the man that helped pen the Second Amendment make if perfectly clear who the Second Amendment is referring to as the militia - all of the people EXCEPT some public officials.  He also states the necessity for all Americans to keep and bear arms to prevent being enslaved by tyranny such as we are facing today.

Below is a four and half minute video that defines what our Founding Fathers said about the militia, the right to bear arms and the necessity to be able to defend ourselves from a tyrannical government.  There are a number of excellent quotes from the men that formed our nation and our Constitution.  Please take the time to watch, take notes and pass this information on to your congressmen, family and friends.  Help us stop tyranny with votes before we are forced to stop it with lead.

    The 2nd amendment is about whatever you want it to be so you can keep all the guns you think you should be allowed to keep, under the circumstances you think are fair. Any disagreement with your outlook is apparently tyrannical.

    • LittleMoose

      You sound just like most of the progressive idiots I know. The Second Amendment is very specific. It says: A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. In the days of the writing of the Constitution, the people were the Militia. This is well documented.

      • LiveInTheRealWorld

        Like I said, any disagreement with your outlook is apparently tyrannical.

        • NM Leon

          Any disagreement is a denial of the extensive commentary and writings of the founders on the reasons behind the Second Amendment.

          Since the plain language reason stated was to prevent tyranny, when you disagree with it we logically wonder if your reason isn't because you would like to impose tyranny.

        • http://www.facebook.com/pat.pettie.9 Pat Pettie

          Our founding fathers labored for more than a year to create a document that would make the people as free as possible - and the government (especially the federal government) as limited as possible. Even so, a majority of states would not approve the document until 10 amendments were added. The Bill of Rights was even more definite in telling government what it could not do.
          In conclusion: The Constitution is for a moral people, it is unfit for any others.

        • LiveInTheRealWorld

          Like I said, any disagreement with your outlook is apparently tyrannical.

        • NM Leon

          Okay, I believe you, you want tyranny. Fortunately the founders left me with the tools to oppose you effectively.

        • LiveInTheRealWorld

          Okay, I believe you, you want to murder anyone who disagrees with your position regarding guns.

        • LiveInTheRealWorld

          There's nothing to listen to or understand. Any amount of disagreement whatsoever is tyranny. Everyone here is a nation unto themselves, because to disagree with them is to be a tyrant.

        • AZ Rocks

          you just don't get it.... sad, but it is what it is. read the definitions of the words you use that might help.

        • anniedawn

          You don't listen much less understand. Why do you keep repeating the same thing over and over like a broken record? Do you think repetition will brainwash anybody?

        • LittleMoose

          I think you best look up the word tyrannical. It sure doesn't fit here. The amendment was written to do just the opposite.

        • LiveInTheRealWorld

          It does fit here, because that's what everyone is suggesting is the result of any discussion of gun control that they disagree with.

        • NM Leon

          You are an idiot. Nobody has said that the result of any discussion of gun control is tyranny except you.

        Once again, any disagreement with your outlook is apparently tyrannical. You don't care what else I have to say.

          Any action taken to outlaw a constitutional right is tyrannical. Nobody knows what point this low information person is talking about! KarenWI

          And yet again, any disagreement with your outlook is apparently tyrannical. Anyone who doesn't feel exactly as you do is a tyrant. That's what all of you people think.

  • Doodlebug

    It's hard to believe this jerk went to law school. It must have been a school in Kenya where they don't give a diddledarn about the US Constitution. You can tell that he doesn't have a 6th or 7th grade understanding of the Constitution or he wouldn't be trying to make appointments on his own nor would he try to convience the American people that the Second Amendment has to do with hunting. Thanks again to all of you who helped make this arrogant, lying, inexperienced radical, unaccomplished shell of a candidate president for four more years.

        Most Americans want peace and our elected leaders have a chance to keep peace with a impeachment against Obama and crew. Demand this for peace.

      Doodlebug, he went to law school to learn how to get around the Constitution, to undermine our rights and to break this country down. To learn just how close he can dance along the edge of dictatorship, but still be called a 'president'. Now that he's peeled off the mask of being a 'moderate' showing his true ultra left, progressive socialist core with no worries about what people think about it which might not have reelected him, the coming years will be rough. Be prepared.

        Actually he and his "minions" are Marxists. Communism is on the menu. In fact, Eric Holder belongs to a "club" that aims to have a "Communist" Constitution by 2020. Some nutty senator (democrat, of course) wants to change the number of terms a persident can serve. Like you said, it will be rough. Especiallly when liberals have so much control of the news, etc. Also Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg and, especially George Soros, etc. (all billionaires) are Democrats. This last election was a fraud. I don't know how but in 2016 we had better have a more stand up attitude in the election.

    If gun control, for prevention of crime, worked then Chicago and Washington DC would be idyllic, glorious cities of peace, tranquility and harmony. BUT, since only the law abiding citizen is the fool who obeys these insane, unconstitutional decrees, the criminal element takes advantage of every restriction against honest people, murdering and robbing as they please, knowing the chance of confronting an ARMED law abiding citizen is not going to happen.

    Why is it, if guns are so bad, that states and cities who recognize citizen rights to self defense and all the "wild west of guns" (as the gun grabbers describe it) in shall issue states for concealed carry permits, these 'wild west' places have far lower violent crime rates than these democratically held (for dreary decades) utopia's of no citizen gun rights?

    Gun control never has, never did and never will prevent criminal activity with guns.

    Gun control always has been, is and always will be about disarming the law abiding citizen, bit by bit, until the point of no resistance to tyranny is possible.

    • LiveInTheRealWorld

      "If gun control, for prevention of crime, worked then Chicago and Washington DC would be idyllic, glorious cities of peace, tranquility and harmony." What nonsense. Of course gun control doesn't work in those cities, because it's not applied equally outside of those cities, and there's little practical way to monitor all of the traffic going in and out of the cities. Unless gun control is universal and enforced at our borders, it's not going to be effective.

      • AZ Rocks

        poor wittle guy trying so hard... you must be referring to the "live in the real world" as shown on TV... lol

      • Pam Peck

        Are you saying that if gun establishments outside of Wash,DC, Maryland and Virginia, would stop selling guns than Wash,DC would then be idyllic? You need a check on reality. Criminals don't buy guns from gun shops. They buy them on the black market.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-Orendorff/1398682199 John Orendorff

    OK, we need our guns to stop a tyranical government. When the Patriot Act was passed, why didn't the millions of gun owners put a stop to it? Could it be that the government has an army, navy, and airforce? What's in your closet to stop aircraft carriers, submarines, planes, drones, or the U.S. Marines? I'm not a "gun-grabber" nor do I think the current administration is. Keep you hunting weapons, but why do you need military type weapons or high capacity magazines? By the way, what do you suppose the founders meant by "well regulated?"

    • anniedawn

      Does the military like Obama? Cops.....yes. I am already afraid of Richmond cops. There is just a difference in attitude. Plus they lie.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Diane-Staggs/1588311502 Diane Staggs

    The other problem is that history is not taught. I've had to explain the historical aspect of why our Founding Fathers were so specific about our Second Amendment. From there I list deferent regimes that confiscated citizens guns that led to immediate holocausts and slavery. Then I tell them to "look it up for yourselves". Unfortunatley, they would rather be gaming online or watch television. "Reading is too hard", "it makes my brain hurt", "reading is boring".

    • AZ Rocks

      that would be the actual problem for the poster above aka: live in the real world (as seen on TV).

  • Carl Stevenson

    Yes, it IS all about tyranny ... The tyrants want us disarmed and defenseless against their increasing destruction of our rights, safety, and well-being.
    DHS and other alphabet agencies have recently purchased over 1.8 BILLION rounds of hollow point ammo – enough to shoot every man, woman, and child in the country 5 times or more – ammo that’s illegal for military use under international law, and have just ordered 7,000 FULLY AUTOMATIC "personal defense" weapons. How does anyone with the capability of rational thought escape the conclusion that our government is preparing for a war on its own citizens?

    Feinstein, Schumer, Obama, Holder, Bloomberg, Cuomo, and their whole gang are tyrant wannabes. To them, anyone who does, or might, oppose their control over every aspect of our lives, is “a criminal” because they said so.

    To quote a few of their heroes, with explanatory comments in ( ):

    “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.” – Mao
    (They revere Mao and the way he ruthlessly grabbed power in China. The fact that he murdered about 100 million Chinese to do it is, to them, a “feature,” not a “bug.”)

    “If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves. … The only real power comes out of a long rifle. … Everyone imposes his own system as far as his army can reach. … We don’t let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns? … The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.” — Joseph Stalin

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed the subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty.” — Adolf Hitler
    (These psychopathic sociopaths in our government – and THEY ARE PRECISELY THAT, never make the mistake of doubting it – believe that they are anointed to be our rulers and that we are the equivalent of Hitler’s “subject races.” And we know what they did to "them.")
    Don’t tell me, “It can’t happen here in America.” To borrow a quote from Mike Vanderboegh,
    “Anyone who tells you that ‘It Can’t Happen Here’ is whistling past the graveyard of history. There is no ‘house rule’ that bars tyranny coming to America. History is replete with republics whose people grew complacent and descended into imperial butchery and chaos.”
    Hitler disarmed the Jews and others, then murdered millions
    Stalin disarmed the Russians, them murdered millions
    Mao disarmed the Chinese peasants, then murdered nearly 100 million.
    The Turks disarmed the Armenians, then murdered 1.5-2 million.
    Pol Pot disarmed the Cambodians and murdered millions.
    Rwanda disarmed its ethnic groups, then murdered millions.
    The list goes on … about 262 MILLION people murdered BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENTS in the 20th century – AFTER they allowed those governments disarmed them. See: http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/20TH.HTM
    They ALL thought “It can’t happen here” – until they were disarmed and it started, then it was too late. Don’t make the same mistake. Don’t EVER let your government disarm you.

    The Founders knew that government, if not constrained at every step, will continue to accumulate power and control until it becomes tyranny. That’s why they feared standing armies and insisted that the “right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
    “A tyrannical rule cannot in any reasonable construction be accounted lawful, and therefore the disturbance of such a government cannot be esteemed seditious, much less traitorous.” – Thomas Aquinas
    When Injustice becomes Law, Resistance becomes Duty – Thomas Jefferson
    Take the pledge:

  • anniedawn

    This is from a speech from a 14 year old girl in front of the New Hampshire Congress: "If President Obama wants to take our guns, isn't he taking away our mean to protect our 1st Amendment rights? Wasn't the 2nd Amendment given to us to protect our 1st Amendment rights? It's not by chance that those are the first two amendments. They were the two most important gifts our founders gave the American people." Are we going to sell out our children?

  • CCblogging

    Obama is trying to accomplish what Hitler, Stalin & Mao did and that was to confiscate everyone's gun for the purpose of obtaining total control over the population. Just like our thug in chief, these despots were all Marxists. Keep your guns because they are the real balance of power in America. An unarmed populace is helpless!

    • CCblogging

      My apologies. Hitler was a Fascist, not a Marxist. However, they were all left wing serial mass killers craving total control just like obama does. In my opinion, there is not a nickles worth of difference between a Fascist and a Marxist.

  • ChristainWest

    Public officials who advocate for any change at all, on any issue, in the Constitution violate their oath of office. They have taken an oath to preserve, to protect and to defend the Constitution. Not change it. Only citizens and groups of citizens should seek any desired changes to the Constituion. Public officials WAIVE their right as an individual citizen to seek any change in the Constitution. Publie officials who seek ANY change in the Constitution should resign the office they hold. If they refuse to resign, they should be impeached or simply voted out of office.

They want us in chains and they DON'T care how they get it done. This government and the Elitist are on one side and the rest of us on the other, yet the American people are afraid of these fools, there are MAYBE 6 million of them, there are 310 million of us, but if you afraid they will win and we will be in chains!
