The Second Amendment is part of the “law of the land” because its in the Bill of Rights which, of course, is in the Constitution. President Obama wants to put more restrictions of American citizens who want to exercise their Second Amendment rights.
The thing of it is, the President has no authority to make law. An Executive Order that violates the Constitution is not a law. An Executive Order to diminish any part of the Bill of Rights should be an impeachable offense.
Therefore, whatever the President and his Attorney General decide to do to restrict gun ownership by making it more difficult to purchase and possess firearm will be an unconstitutional act.
Since the establishment GOP will only talk about what Obama does and won’t do anything to stop him, it’s up to us peacefully to defy him.
The best way to do that is to buy at least one gun. If you already have a gun, buy another one. You can always trade it, use it for barter, pass it down to your children and grandchildren, use it for defense, or put it on display accompanied with a sign like this one:
And, of course, buy extra ammunition. Tricky politicians may try to outlaw ammunition because the Second Amendment does not specifically say that we have the right to keep and bear ammunition.
You don’t ever have to use your gun. Most law-abiding people never do. Just having one is a statement against statist tyranny, and buying one now will make a statement. You don’t even have to load it.
There’s nothing illegal about buying a gun. There’s nothing illegal about owning a gun, or two, or three. There’s nothing immoral or unconstitutional in defying a civil official when that official is violating the parameters of his or her office, especially one who is violating his oath to uphold the Constitution.
States can legitimately get in the defiance game as well. Here’s what the governor of Georgia did. Gov. Nathan Deal “signed the state’s ‘Safe Carry Protection Act,’” that makes it legal “for licensed gun owners in Georgia to pack heat in bars, schools, churches and some government buildings.” Critics have dubbed it “the ‘guns everywhere bill.’”
Not to be outdone, here’s what Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas did. “Texas joined 45 other states on New Year’s Day in allowing people to openly carry handguns.”
You and I are the last line of defense against individual tyranny (criminals), anarchy, homegrown terrorism (Islamic terrorism), invasion, and statist tyranny.
The police can’t be everywhere, and even where some of them are, you may not be able to depend on them. If you ever find yourself in an active shooter situation at Chicago’s O’Hare airport, don’t count on officers to help you:
“Internal aviation department documents obtained by CNN instruct officers not ‘to become part of the response’ to an attack.
“‘If evacuation is not possible, you should find a place to hide where the active shooter is less likely to find you. Block entry to your hiding place and lock the door,’ but Matt Brandon, secretary-treasurer of the airport officers union, told CNN they have serious issues with the protocol.” (H/T: Daily Caller)
Gun sales are escalating in Switzerland because of fear of a real threat:
“It would appear the people of Switzerland have been listening to their military leaders. Having recently been warned by the Swiss army chief of growing social unrest, SwissInfo reports applications for gun permits in Switzerland increased by 20% between 2014 and 2015, according to a survey conducted in 12 cantons. But while the army proposes ‘arm yourselves,’ Swiss crime prevention officials warn against the false sense of security that guns bring.
“Whereas in 2011 numerous people in Switzerland voluntarily gave up their firearms, today more and more people are purchasing guns.” (H/T: Zero Hedge)
President Obama’s policies, if he could follow through with all of them, would make all of us sitting ducks to be picked off by a criminal class and an expanding and aggressive Islamic caliphate.
It’s time to stand up now and in November.
