Shared Goal: Reduce Violence, Make Communities Safer?

Jim Shepherd at the Outdoor Wire ended his optimistic piece by telling readers that the National Shooting Sports Foundation sent out a press release encouraging people to become involved in the conversation, “to see violence in our society reduced and our communities and our children made safer.”

So far every so-called Second Amendment advocate group and most individual s0-called Second Amendment supporters have only talked about banning guns not being an answer, but have been willing to ignorantly support ridiculous efforts to make schools safer by “educating” (propagandizing/brainwashing) the public about violence and mental illness, while giving law enforcement more authority and leeway to confiscate your guns.

What’s not being addressed, and probably never will, are those issues that have MADE this society violent, angry, mentally ill, chemically altered, etc. that drives a person to exemplify that abnormal manipulation into violent actions.

If the real “Shared Goal” is to reduce violence and make our communities and children safer, the conversation needs to be broadened into areas where most people will become uncomfortable. It will never happen. Too much money at stake.

The NRA Are Hypocrites

Perhaps doing a slightly better job of pointing out the insanity of the newly-signed bill in Florida than the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the NRA shows their hypocrisy on their NRA-ILA website (surrounded by “Donate Now” buttons).

Evidently, the NRA completely supports parts of the new bill (as does the NSSF and others) including the blanket approval of actions to “educate” and “rat” on anyone “suspected” of having mental issues and ceding more fascist authority to the police to confiscate guns and ask questions later. As Trump stated, he preferred to confiscate guns first and worry about Due Process later. Nice…real nice! Leadership? Hmm!

This and a plea that states: “Contact your members of Congress and state lawmakers today and ask them to oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.”

Maybe the NRA should take a lesson out of their own playbook. If we lined up all the “gun control schemes” the NRA has been promoters and supporters of, it might make a fairly large book.

And it’s time to ask why the NRA thinks giving more power to cops to confiscate your property and at the same time allow governments to decide what is mental illness in the context of gun buying/ownership and what it is that is to be “educated” upon the people, isn’t supporting “gun control schemes” that impact law-abiding gun owners?

Wording is everything. The NRA states (above) that: “…oppose all gun control schemes that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.” (emboldening added) Are they saying that it is okay to support “gun control schemes” that impact gun owners and criminals together? Their historic record seems to indicate that, which in turn makes them an anti-Second Amendment organization. So, keep sending them money! MONEY-MONEY-MONEY!!!

The NRA also says that: “If we want to prevent future atrocities, we must look for solutions that keep guns out of the hands of those who are a danger to themselves or others, while protecting the rights of law-abiding Americans.”

According to how the NRA operates those solutions all involve giving up some of your rights. I guess they call that compromise. Either it’s a right or it’s a meted out privilege. Have we already forgotten that a previous administration in the White House believed that GIs returning from war who sought any kind of emotional assistance should be banned from owning a gun? Apparently so! What could possibly go wrong when Government decides your state of mind? Who decides theirs?

And is the NRA suggesting that we take away a person’s right to “innocent until proven guilty” and “Due Process” as a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist; a fairytale that it will prevent further crimes by “mental” people?

The answer appears to be yes. It is obvious (to me anyway) that the NRA pisses on the Second Amendment and then tells people it’s raining, so why wouldn’t they be willing to offer to give up even more of your rights to the sacrificial lamb (money and power)?

But if forget. You think the NRA is your best friend. He ain’t much of a friend, but he’s the only one you have…right?

Why Is the Parkland, Florida Shooting Different?

Or is it? One has to wonder, or ought to anyway, why, only hours after the staged Parkland, Florida school shooting, anti-gun bills were systematically introduced in state legislatures across the country, and now in Washington.

There was a lot of grumbling about gun hating after the Las Vegas shooting and after the nightclub shooting in Orlando, but there wasn’t this seemingly planned event to bring to the lawmakers all these anti-gun bills.

Was it because it was all a part of a bigger planned event?

Whatever you do…

DON’T GO LOOK!

It’s What’s Wrong With Those Pretend Second Amendment Advocates

I tire of reading and hearing idiots say that they might realize groups like the NRA and the NSSF aren’t perfect but they are better than nothing. Are they? Is it better to be slowly eaten to death by ants than to just have it over with in an instance? The end result is going to be the same.

Perhaps some don’t want to talk about the realization that all of these fake Second Amendment groups are no different than any other group – they’re in it for the money. Yeah, that’s right. It’s the money stupid.

You see, groups like these can’t be real supporters of the Second Amendment because there is not so much money in it. The broader the base of their support the more money. So, instead of simply standing up and saying I have an inalienable right to choose how I will defend myself and my property and that choice might involve a gun, a hatchet, a golf club, or a Bible, they appeal to where the most money is. You know, those “reasonable” limits to what God gave you even before you were born?

They want your money…period!

Do you need more proof? Or is it more comfortable to just pretend they are on your side? Your choice.

Today the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) sent out an email asking that you contact Florida Governor Rick Scott and ask him to veto the recently passed bill that demolishes your inalienable rights and those granted to you by your government.

Yesterday I reported on the passage of SB7026, a bill that would place your mental status in the hands of some government agent who is, perhaps, more insane than you are. This bill would rebuild the school in Parkland where the latest shooting took place – I suppose to make sure to remove any evidence that might incriminate the bastards who actually did the shooting. In addition, insane propagandized automatons are going to “educate” more and more of you to teach you how to rat someone out you might think is mentally deranged because…GASP… they own a gun.

If you are in favor of this fascist government deciding whether or not you are insane, then you’ll love the idea that this bill gives YOUR heroes, the cops, more power to confiscate your property because some fascist/totalitarian has determined that you shouldn’t possess a gun. I’m sure while they are taking your guns, they’ll pause for a moment and gun down a few of you who they THOUGHT was armed and dangerous. You and 9/11 created them.

And there’s more, much more but I won’t bore you with such insignificant details because I know you don’t care. Trust your heroes!

So, back to the NSSF. They ask members/readers to contact the Florida governor for a veto because of the age restriction included in this bill. The new law raises the age to 21 as a minimum age to buy a gun. With that and a 3-day waiting period, what’s to complain about?

The NSSF writes: “The National Shooting Sports Foundation supports measures to increase school security and ensure that the mentally ill and prohibited persons are unable to obtain firearms; however, we strongly oppose any proposal to increase the age from 18 to 21 for the purchase of long guns. Raising the minimum age to 21 to purchase a shotgun or a rifle for lawful purposes is an infringement on the constitutional rights of young adults between the ages of 18 and 20. In the United States, you are an adult when you turn 18. Your constitutional rights are fully vested, including the right to vote and the right to keep and bear arms. This unconstitutional age-based gun ban would deny young adults their right to self-protection.”

Evidently, they are NOT, I repeat NOT, supporters of the Second Amendment or your right to be able to defend yourself how and when you choose. To the NSSF, evidently, all they care about is the age limit of when you can buy a gun. Is that because this would severely cut into the profits of the gun manufacturing industry who are probably heavy supporters (give gobs of money) to groups like the NSSF and NRA? Don’t tell me you never thought to that.

They tell us they support school security and keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill (they discount themselves of course) but instead of reading and listening to the lying, cheating, frauds in the Media and from these political groups, why not take some responsibility and go read the damned bill that just passed. There’s nothing in it that will do any of what they say they support…nothing! But the rhetoric and talking points of the bill appeal to a broader base of people = more money, more money!

Upon discovery, an honest person would then ask why is the NSSF only speaking out asking the governor to veto the bill because of the age restriction? Why aren’t they asking that the entire bill is vetoed and never brought up in the Florida Legislature or any other legislature in this country? It’s because if they did, they would lose the financial support from all those who simply love to give the government all their rights and turn them into meted-out privileges. Got to think about the salaries and retirement benefits.

If the NSSF and the NRA whittled their membership down to only the true understanders of inalienable rights and government-issued rights, there would be virtually nobody left to pay their big salaries.

Oh what, you thought it was only those Leftist (wink-wink) groups that paid out big salaries to help do the bidding for the Government? Ha!

If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m pretty much completely fed up with the country and the world in general. I’m fed up with morons who thrive on their own efforts to hang themselves, to whittle away at their own existence, incapable of thinking beyond the end of their modeled noses. Soon Artificial Intelligence will tell them when to wipe when they are finished…you know what.

There are zero reasons to place an ounce of trust in any man-made government…ZERO, ZERO, ZERO. And yet, it’s exactly what you do. I just don’t understand.

But forget about what I say and write. You know better than I do. You have come to love and trust your servitude. Now live with it. Don’t look for me there.

Someone one day asked me what I had to fear because I supported the Second Amendment. I told them they had it all wrong (which is typical). I fear nothing. I have no reason to fear anything. “For the Lord is my Shepherd. I shall not want….”

It’s not so much about my love affair with a gun or guns. I worship but only the True Yahweh who gave me a long time ago, real liberty, real freedom, and real rights. For now, I have to live in this world and as long as I do, I will do what I can to expose the wrongs, the fraud, the corruption, the evil, the Satanic, and protect those rights given to me by my Creator.

If my words have offended you that’s too bad. I would rather that you woke up than went down with the ship you are on.

None of us can protect our rights when we work so hard to give them all away.

I just don’t get it.

Jerks in Florida Pass Ridiculous Anti-Second Amendment Bill in Knee-Jerk Fashion

Reinforcing the fact that people refuse to react unemotionally or learn anything from history, has reared up in Florida where legislators crucified the Second Amendment, my inalienable right to self-defense, gave out of control cops more power to confiscate guns from somebody they might not like, and placed power in the hands of government and government agencies to decide if someone is “mental.” What could possibly go wrong?

Perhaps such fascist idiocy on display in Florida is the result of the fascist idiocy on display in Washington where lying, anti-gun President Trump said he supported taking away people’s guns and worrying about Due Process later.

All of this brings rushing back to me H.L. Mencken’s quote: “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.” Need I remind readers that our local, state, and federal governments are made up “the American public?”

A total of $700 million dollars in funding is included in this fascist move with $470 million going to mental health issues alone. Briefly, the new law, unless vetoed by the governor, includes possible arming of some in schools – restricted to a very limited number and of those who might be eligible; establish a 3-day waiting period for the purchase of any gun; outlaws “bump-stocks” (and I doubt seriously they even know what one is); and raise the minimum age to be able to buy a gun to 21.

And I have to ask, HOW IN HELL DOES ANY OF THIS STOP OR SLOW DOWN MASS SCHOOL SHOOTINGS?

For those interested in the 105-page fascist bill that just passed 67-50, you can find SB7026 at this link.

Parkland School Shooting: Everybody Failed

Is it success to fail? Is it a failure to succeed? My government failed, and I’m a winner? My government failed, therefore, I have failed? Regardless of your perspective, it appears that both sides in a ridiculous and phony debate about a mass shooting at a Florida high school are saying that there was “failure” everywhere, committed by numerous people and groups of people. There’s lots of blame to dish out.

To some, the NRA failed society because they are to blame for the presence of guns in our society. To others, the government “system” sworn to be our protectors, failed at all levels. The school system failed. Law enforcement failed. The Media failed. Oh, hell, I’ll say it because it has already been said before – stopping global warming failed.

If we are going to dole out failure certificates – because in today’s society everyone gets one – make sure everyone gets one.

Where did the failure begin? I suppose a sensible argument could be made that the first failure of man was when Eve ate the forbidden fruit. But, let’s move the calendar up about 6,000 years – time and place, the United States of America around about 1787. For those unable to make the leap, this was the year of the signing of the U.S. Constitution. The Bill of Rights was signed in 1789 to become effective in 1791.

The Bill of Rights was actually the first 10 amendments to the Constitution. There have been 17 more. Article V of the Constitution tells us how to offer amendments:

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate.

Our governmental failures began with the signing of the U.S. Constitution. Short of an all-out debate about the Constitution, try to understand the realities of what the government does in its regard. For some, this may be a difficult concept, but the governmental failure is due to it being a rigged system, designed as such. A government unchecked with the ability to write its own ticket is tyranny at work.

When it comes to the Second Amendment, so many of us take the amendment as it is written and demand that it be followed to the letter of each text. We do this with all our “rights” without considering the rest of the Constitution. A rigged system will not allow the original intent and wording of any amendment…unless of course, it is the interest of the Government over that of the people. In addition, this tyrannical government hasn’t reached the point yet where they are brazen enough to just totally disregard the Second Amendment (and all other amendments) and essentially declare a suspension of the Constitution for reasons of “rebellion and public safety.” (U.S. Constitution Article I, Section 9, Clause 2 – this is one rigging.)

Article I, Section 8, in part reads:

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.

This is another part of the rigged system. Over time the Congress of the United States has assumed all power over regulation and the enforcement of such regulations whether or not you or I think their actions violate the Constitution. There’s always the catch-all phrase or phrases, like the Commerce Clause.

If we refer back to the Second Amendment, have the people or the Legislature (the People) legally amendment the text of the Second Amendment according to Article V of the Constitution? I’ve not seen that happen. However, have they succeeded (or failed depending upon one’s perspective) in amending the wording and meaning of the Second Amendment – and other amendments? You bet they have and there is no stopping the tyrannical power grab because our own failures have allowed it to happen. Manufactured laws and established precedent effectively change the original Bill of Rights.

“Reasonable” restrictions on any amendment of our Bill of Rights is illegal in the sense that it effectively changes the wording and meaning/interpretation of that law. But, that doesn’t matter, does it? Has Congress overstepped its authority to “make all laws that shall be necessary and proper” and such believe themselves to hold the power to disregard the part of the Constitution that lays out the steps needed to amend an amendment? Evidently we, the little people, don’t seem to think so.

For those who despise the Second Amendment, I got news for you. This same tactic takes place when “necessary and proper” for the destruction of all of our rights. As has often been stated, whenever the Government has full control over our rights they are no longer rights but privileges. Privileges can be given and privileges can be just as easily taken away. Perhaps it is time to rename the Bill of Rights to the Bill of Privileges.

Our own failures have provided the path for an easily rigged system in which the Government can do anything and everything they want regardless of what you want to believe. Our failures have allowed the growth of this Government so large that it is impossible for it to function at any level. It can only succeed at failure.

Failure is everywhere and it’s not just the Government and it’s not just society. James Madison, contributing author of the U.S. Constitution and often titled the Father of the Bill of Rights, once said: “To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.” What he was saying here is that it is but a pipe dream to think that any government can deliver liberty and happiness without first securing the morality of the people. That securing of morality has long since vanished I’m afraid.

Because our society is void of honest morality, to think that we can work with and within a corrupt and rigged institution to lock up our safety, freedoms, and happiness is but a chimerical idea. In fact, it is the culmination of many generations of failures.

Parkland, Florida is just the latest in a long list of failures. We debate the nonsensical portions of our societal failures, blaming everyone but ourselves. The overwhelming presence of insanity clearly suggests something must change.

I’m Not All In With This Man’s “Gun Culture”

I read this article this morning of a man describing his world of “gun culture.” I thought a lot of it was well presented, although I didn’t necessarily agree with all of it, including some of the “feelings” he gets from carrying a concealed weapon, etc.

What I disagreed with the most was what is on display in this country at present. Somehow the “gun culture” has taken the high road, while on the one hand promoting a person’s right to self-defense and to keep and bear arms, and on the other hand assuming the role of a good totalitarian in support of fascist government regulation and control over an inalienable right to keep and bear arms and a person’s choice as to how to do that.

The author writes: “Many gun-rights supporters were appalled to learn after the Sutherland Springs shooting that the military was systematically underreporting disqualifying convictions to the federal background check database. Under pressure, the military has added more than 4,000 new names in just three months. Similarly, law-enforcement failures or background-check failures that preceded, for example, the Virginia Tech, Charleston, Orlando, Sutherland Springs, and Parkland shootings are spurring serious new consideration of the gun violence restraining order, a move that would allow family members and others close to a potential shooter to get in front of a judge to request that the court direct law enforcement to temporarily seize a dangerous person’s weapons. It gives ordinary citizens a chance to “do something” after they “see something” and “say something.

The intent here is understandable. What is seriously flawed in the circular thinking process is the belief that some Second Amendment restrictions affect only the lawful citizen and others don’t. This action requires that the True Believer fully trusts his government to do the right thing and protect us. How has that worked in the past?

I can’t be a part of this “gun culture.” I don’t like government telling me how, when and with what, I can defend myself.

The author is proud that the military has turned in more names of those now prohibited from buying and owning a gun, with complete faith and trust that each and every one of them was justified…by whose standards I might ask. Seriously, is there any valid reason that we should believe and trust the government to do anything that is right?

The writer has complete faith in his government that a “temporary” taking of a person’s property, deeming them “dangerous” (by whose standards I ask again?) is a good thing. And, I’ll bet this same person is the first to wonder why his inalienable right to protection is being systematically taken away and by piecemeal being ceded over to the Government for administration.

By God don’t we ever learn anything?

Continued Promotion of “Reasonable” Destruction of Gun Rights

The National Shooting Sports Foundation and others are encouraging their members to contact their senators to push them to pass the “Fix NICS Act, S.2135.” Who needs those who openly fight to eliminate a person’s right to protect themselves and their right to choose how to do it, when there are rich and powerful so-called Second Amendment advocates working round the clock to do the job of the anti-gun crowd?

So-called pro-Second Amendment groups tell those whose money they need to pay overblown salaries that laws created to limit a person’s rights under the Second Amendment will only affect the lawful citizen; that criminals and the insane pay no regard to laws when they need a gun, or any other weapon, to carry out their crimes. Surely there are many other methods of mass killing than a couple of guns.

Evidently, the NRA and NSSF, to name a couple, don’t believe what they tell others and are pushing for the U.S. Senate to pass a useless “Fix” to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

Not to cloud the picture here by introducing facts to consider in this illicit act to make a mockery out of the Second Amendment, but has anybody actually read S2135? I didn’t think so.

Suppose you believe in your misguided mind that somehow a corrupt government that operates a criminal enterprise that is rigged can pull off something like S2135, which is only an amendment to the existing laws that are supposed to regulate the instant criminal background check. Already they have proven they are incapable of making it work. Adding 33 amendments to the law will not change anything. The problem isn’t guns, but don’t let me mess up your Nirvanic experiences.

In your same off-track minds, you think this amendment will do the trick and will prohibit, unqualified “mental” people from buying a gun. Unlike the common criminal, mentally ill people, which includes those who have been found guilty of “domestic abuse,” or sought help for Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, will be unable to possess a gun to carry out their mentally deranged plans to kill people. One might have to ask who are the sane ones around here?

So, let’s say S2135 passes and you believe it will stop or limit undesirable citizens from buying and owning a gun. BUT, HAVE YOU READ THE ACT? I didn’t think so.

The Senate, the President, and all that support this Act intend to make it work with bribery and extortion, with no real consequences for not doing the job described in the Act. This Act sends gobs of money (bribery) to government agencies, both state and federal, as “incentives” to do their jobs. And if you fail to file your reports on time, the head of each agency not meeting deadlines, will not be eligible for end of the year bonuses (extortion) until they have cleaned their rooms completed filing.

Did I also mention that these “required” filings of records of those meeting ineligibility requirements to buy or own a gun, don’t have to have everyone on the list? 90 percent will be sufficient. I’m positive more than 10% of those ineligible to own a gun do the mass killings (wink-wink). Oh, wait! Almost none of those who have committed mass murder with guns failed or would have failed a criminal background check, even for being a mental case. Shucks! I’m confused.

So you see, the insanity is prevalent throughout society and government. People are confused and say things they don’t believe or even understand. They are incapable of injecting any sanity into anything. All actions and reactions are driven by programmed anger and hatred. Democrats wanted the FIX NICS ACT and the Republicans stopped it. Now the Republicans and their cronies want FIX NICS ACT and the Democrats don’t. And there is no insanity?

Oh, if only the people would clean out their blind hatred, things might change. Is there any hope?

2 Chronicles 7:14 – If my people, among whom my Name is called upon, do humble themselves, and pray and seek my presence, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear in heaven and be merciful to their sin, and will heal their land.

Reasonable Means Giving Away

*Editor’s Note* – I have placed a teaser and a link to an article found published in the Outdoorwire discussing guns, violence, and the Second Amendment. The article as a whole is mostly a reasonable presentation of historic quotes from recognizable historical figures.

The author points out that all people are good and they all just want the violence to end. Perhaps that is sort of true but it is my contention that the majority of these people really don’t want the violence to end because they are part of the promulgation of violence in our society…but they don’t know it or are not willing to admit it. They are in love with the lifestyles they have chosen, which includes violence among other things.

The quotes given in this article are fine. Some can even be perceived as outstanding. But with all good quotes, there’s one reality that is most often overlooked. While Jefferson, Adams, Mason, and Franklin had great things to say in support of the Second Amendment or a person’s right to self-defense by owning a gun, I doubt that everyone living at that time agreed with their perspective on guns and gun ownership. As a result, from that point forward there has always been those wishing to mitigate the inalienable right into something more closely resembling a government granted privilege.

The cry goes out always for “something to be done” and/or that it only makes sense that there be placed “reasonable” restrictions on that right. The words of the Second Amendment have never been altered and in contradiction, over the years, the government has seen fit to do “what is necessary and proper” to take the inalienable right from the people. And this we have brainwashed to believe is needed in order to “do something” while placing reasonable limitations on an inalienable right which history has proven not to stop any of the intended actions of gun violence but instead has provided a landscape in which it is far easier to access “gun free zones” and kill at will.

The author of the piece linked to below does reveal that impossible-to-lose brainwashing, intimating the need for both sides to come together to find a way to end the violence. If this author and the many hundreds I have read before and will read after, actually believe the talking points used to construct their words, then why should we then seek to be “reasonable” and give away that which we KNOW will only make things worse? This makes no sense! This is insanity!

While the author makes an attempt to address the real issue of why any person is of the mindset to pick up any weapon and kill anyone, I question whether they actually believe any of what they have written.

The author writes: “We demonize the opposition with no attempt to understand each other’s perspective and motivation.  Is it any wonder we are no closer to figuring out a solution?”

The so-called demonization of the “opposition” is a programmed event. The Global Power Structure has ensured that there will always be “opposition” to every facet of our lives, regardless of our actual convictions.

The problem with attempting to “understand each other’s perspective and motivation” is twofold. First, the other’s perspective isn’t their own. It has been crammed down their throats along with a blind acceptance of it. In trying to understand where the “other side” is coming from, it is impossible because those truly in control make sure that the real issue is never addressed and the battle rages on between the false dichotomies of two parties or two political convictions – worthless existences. It’s far easier to go to war and fight for fake political reasons than to address the terrible, progressive lifestyles that have brought us to a point of killing for no reason…among other worthless values.

Second, the author brings up motivation. How are we expected to understand another’s motivation when we fail to recognize the perspective for which one has chosen to take up the battle sword and fight?

All that is ever discussed is that guns kill and one side wants to ban the guns and the other side wants to preserve the right to own a gun. With no honest discussions ever taking the stand of any real issues, then all that is left is to argue for naught.

When the author laments of not finding a solution, I cannot help but remind readers of that tried and true Hegelian Dialectic. The Hegelian Dialectic creates a crisis, embellishes that crisis and then rushes in with THEIR solution. Refusing to understand the forces at work guarantees the “solution” will always be that of the Global Power Structure.

It is a mental deficiency to believe that banning a gun will stop the killing as much as believing giving everyone a gun will. Killing is a symptom of life’s wrong track. A gun is a machine. Our world is satiated with machines and chemicals capable of mass destruction. How we choose to use those machines is nothing more than the shadow being cast from the society in which we live. That is the issue that needs addressing, not the gun.

As hard as men might try, they will never end the violence until the ship is righted and the focus of life is the Creator and not the creations.

I will leave readers, once again, with the following bit of Scripture: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, and against the worldly governors, the princes of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness, which are in the high places.” Ephesians 6:12

The majority of people on the anti-gun side are not unreasonable.  They do not want to take our guns for fun or spite. They are good people who only want the violence to stop.  To their way of thinking, removing guns from society is the simplest way to achieve that end.  But neither the problems we face nor their solutions are simple.  Today’s public debate barely mentions the causation for a generation of mass murderers.  In addition to a mental health screening system that is clearly failing, discipline, family values, and personal responsibility are lacking in many households today.  The desensitization to human suffering and death promulgated by Hollywood and the video game industry are also issues we must address as a society in order to slow and eventually put an end to this epidemic of violence.  But that discussion is not likely to happen.  Not when liberal leaders pushing for more governmental control know it is much more effective to juxtapose dead children with an AR 15 and spent cases. <<<Read More>>>

Second Amendment Creation Was a Racism Event

If you choose to read this article – I neither encourage nor discourage it – consider what the author says in full. After reading it, come back and reread the below that I copied and pasted from the article. Perhaps you might agree that in the author’s explanation for the “need” of the Second Amendment, it is substantiated by all the claims that he makes in attempts to vilify it, even resorting to place racism at the foundation of the Second Amendment.

Is the author suggesting that it wasn’t until AFTER the United States formed a government military that we were no longer free and secure? I don’t think the author sees what he wrote in this manner but consider what he did say. It would be my opinion that this author is one who “trusts” his government and turns to his government for all his needs. When that is the case, then how he presents his case is from the position of what he was taught and how he has chosen to live his life of servitude.

If his claim is true that the real reason for the Second Amendment was to prevent creation of a professional army, i.e. the law enforcement branch of the Government, because giving government the power over the people historically proved the loss of being free and secure to the people, then this author misses his own point or errs in presenting a poor one.

Perhaps he is blinded by his own anger and hatred.

Preventing the United States from starting a professional army, in fact, was the single most important goal of the Second Amendment. It is hard to recapture this fear today, but during the 18th century few boogeymen were as scary as the standing army — an army made up of professional, full-time soldiers.

By the logic of the 18th century, any society with a professional army could never be truly free. The men in charge of that army could order it to attack the citizens themselves, who, unarmed and unorganized, would be unable to fight back. This was why a well-regulated militia was necessary to the security of a free state: To be secure, a society needed to be able to defend itself; to be free, it could not exist merely at the whim of a standing army and its generals.

The only way to be both free and secure was for citizens to be armed, organized and ready to defend their society. The choice was a stark one: a standing army or a free nation.
