Question 3 Intentionally Confusing to Isolate Gun Owners

*Editor’s Note* – As the debate on Maine’s referendum Question 3 continues, the author, linked to below, offers an interesting approach and resolve, and perhaps one that is not fully understood.

The author seeks power in the unity of gun owners. As a society it is what we know, but do we fully understand it? For someone like myself, I find my strength in self-determination and the limitation of my succession of liberties, given me by my Creator, in efforts to preserve some sort of sovereignty. Once any man joins forces with any group, community, country, state, shooting club, NRA, a political party, etc. they have willingly given up another chunk of their sovereignty, until, one day, it is all gone. There is no escaping it.

The dilemma freedom seekers face is exactly as the below author describes – that the only way to fight the fascists is to grow the membership of an organization, where more members equals more power to fight and yet, the resulting action actually ends up further destroying your perceived sovereignty.

Ah, but you say, it is necessary, it is the only way to fight it. Perhaps so, but understand that the end result is always a compromise – a giving away of another portion of your rights. There is no escaping it. As the old saying about “spreading the wealth,” what happens when you have compromised everything away?

It’s not that you shouldn’t do what you believe necessary to accomplish what you think you can accomplish but it is to question whether the immediate action is the right one and to do that one must understand the fullness of their actions, first. Perhaps there is that needed “Power” through something other than a man creation. If we all had it, there would be no Question 3.

“The greatest strength of the right of individuals to keep and bear arms is not in the individual himself, but in the greater community of gun owners and those they would share their love of firearms with. The anti-gun crowd is not just attacking us as individuals, but attacking our very right to have a community, so they can isolate and weaken us in the eventual hope of destroying our rights altogether.”<<<Read More>>>
