Second Amendment Right to Bear Arms
In our last article, we briefly discussed the growing police state of America and the growing number of rogue cops that become judge, jury, and in some cases, executioner. With the amount of unreasonable demands made by way too many law enforcement officials, it is very clear that a person’s 4th Amendment rights – the one that protects civilians from unreasonable search and seizure – is going the way of the dinosaur.
Here’s the thing. Law enforcement agencies will generally stand by their officers, unless the crime they commit against civilians is so egregious that firing them (and in some cases, arresting them) cannot be avoided. Go to YouTube and take the time to peruse numerous videos showing where law enforcement already had a suspect under control, but decided that they needed to pummel the crap out of him/her anyway simply because they are so filled with adrenaline and feelings of power that they actually believe what they are doing is fine.
In watching these videos, what you’ll actually see are cops that have gone bad. They believe they have a right to be sarcastic, unreasonable, demanding, brutal, and even physical when it comes down to it. It’s not because of any perceived violation of the law that they believe this. It is due solely to the fact that in too many cases, they believe themselves to BE the law. It’s kind of like a “Judge Dredd” mentality in which those representing the law are actually the arresting officer, the prosecuting attorney, the judge, the jury, and the executioner all rolled up into one person.
But another one of the freedoms guaranteed by this country’s founding documents is under attack. The right to bear arms has long been in the sights of those who are desperate to eradicate this freedom. They do not want the average citizen to being able to possess guns at all. While they say that the reason for this has to do with their concern for anyone and everyone who is killed by guns, the reality is that this reasoning is merely a smoke screen designed to mask their real motivations.
Normally, people who are opposed to guns – anti-gunners – refer to statistics to bolster their arguments that guns kill way too many people therefore they should be outlawed. What they routinely do not tell you is that the statistics they represent normally include people who do use guns, but not in the commission of a crime. The number of people who use a gun and wind up killing someone also includes the people who are using a gun to defend themselves against criminals who are attempting to do them harm.
For instance, this past month, there were any numbers of incidents in which civilians used guns to protect themselves and/or their families from intruders, carjackers, and the like. These incidents are never reported in the mainstream media because the media is controlled by people who present lies on a routine basis. It doesn’t matter which news bureau is doing the reporting – CNN, FOX, NBC, CBS, ABC, etc. – because all of them essentially have the same agenda. They want people to believe that only if guns were outlawed, crime would go way down. This has been shown to be false repeatedly, but the lies keep coming.
These incidents are from USConcealed Carry and can easily be verified. Have you heard of any of these situations in the any of the mainstream media?
1) In Birmingham, AL, a 13-year-old boy came up to a couple as they drove into their driveway at night. He was wearing a bandana and carried a loaded and cocked pistol. His demand was that they get out of the car and give it up. The male driver took out his own gun and fired at the 13-year-old, who eventually died. It is being investigated as a justifiable homicide.
2) In Modesto, CA, a 62-year-old former marine heard noise as two men broke into his home during a home invasion. The man saw the invaders as they attacked the man’s stepson. The former marine grabbed his .357 Magnum and fired at the intruders. He struck one in the leg and both ran. The wounded invader was arrested and charged but the accomplice is still at large. The homeowner is not being charged in the incident.
3) In Kansas City, MO, a 20-year-old woman opened her door to two teens who said they were looking for someone in that neighborhood. When the woman said the person they were looking for was not there, the teens put a gun to her head. They then forced her into a closet and ransacked the house. The woman kept a gun in the closet and confronted the two teens. She shot one and the other fled. The burglar who was shot stumbled out of the front door and died. The female victim is not expected to face charges.
4) In New Bend, WA, a man and his girlfriend were awakened by the sound of a break-in occurring. The intruder shouted that he was going to kill whoever was in the house. The male homeowner took his gun and yelled out that he had a gun and the intruder should leave immediately. The intruder continued ransacking the home while repeating his threat to kill the people in the home. When the intruder kicked in the bedroom door where the couple were hiding, the homeowner shot and killed the intruder. Police in this case praised the homeowner’s restraint saying he only fired on the intruder when he was left with no other choice.
The above examples represent a small percentage of incidents that occur every day throughout the U.S. where normal civilians are the intended victims, but wind up turning the tables on the criminals. The unfortunate part of course is that anyone is killed, yet it is clearly seen that had the victims not had guns, they would have likely been the ones to have died.
The disingenuous attitude of liberals comes to the fore here though because they will include these incidents in their statistics because it pumps up the number of individuals who are killed by guns. They know that they are doing this, but they don’t care, because they simply want to find some way to outlaw guns.
Now we have leaders within the U.S. getting ready to vote on whether or not the 2nd Amendment will be abrogated by entering into a “treaty” with the UN. The vote for this takes place on July 27th, just a few days from now. It’s referred to as the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) and if ratified, will give the UN the power to remove guns from citizens of the United States in complete and absolute defiance to the 2nd Amendment. It is specifically designed to repeal the 2nd Amendment by overriding Congress and the will of the people.
But maybe you’re one who believes that if guns were outlawed, crime would go down? Again, that has been proven to be completely false repeatedly, but maybe you haven’t heard, or don’t want to know. You are afraid of guns because they make loud noise and projectiles (bullets) exit the barrel at a speed of at least 400fps (feet per second) and speeds far greater. You don’t like guns. You did not grow up around guns, so you have never seen the need for them. They annoy and scare you and you don’t believe that guns should be part of a “civilized” society. I don’t either, but I don’t see our society as civilized.
Chicago tried to abrogate the law by making it a crime for civilians and residents of Chicago to own guns even for use as defensive weapons in the case of a home invasion. In other words, in Chicago, it was against the law for someone to even own and have a gun in their own home. Maybe you’re saying “good!” but consider the fact that this law was not adhered to by criminals. In fact, it is a fact that during the time this illegal law was on the books in Chicago, violent crime more than doubled. Why? Because the criminals knew that people could not use a gun to defend themselves so the criminal automatically won.
When has any law against anything wiped out the thing it was directed at? For instance, there are laws against cold-blooded murder, yet people are murdered every day. There are many laws against drugs, drug used and the selling of drugs, yet people continue to use, abuse, and sell drugs. The war on drugs is a a war that will not be won.
But all that aside, the truth is that citizens of the United States have the right to bear arms, whether anyone likes that or not. This is merely one of the rights guaranteed under the founding documents for this country. It doesn’t matter whether individual politicians like those rights or not. They are guaranteed for the individual.
But let’s say it’s okay with you if the 2nd Amendment was completely eradicated. The question then becomes what about your pet freedom? Is it okay if I don’t like it and want to see it removed as well?
The reality is that our rights – all of them – as citizens of this country are under severe attack by people who are more concerned about controlling the masses than caring about us. They want a docile populace that can be easily controlled so that we will do whatever they say without question. People with guns have a way to defend themselves against people who are ultimately traitors to this country and its founding documents.
During the Katrina event, one of the first things that the New Orleans Police Department did was to go door to door confiscating all guns. This was done under the guise of helping people, but the truth of the matter is that the reason they did what they did was to simply take guns, leaving people with no ability to defend themselves against looters. It was a completely illegal grab for guns, but since it was an “emergency” situation, that became the “hook” to unlawfully take what the government has no right to take. View the video at the bottom of this article.
I learned this morning that a lone gunman entered a movie theater in Colorado and after lobbing in a tear gas canister, opened fire on the audience, killing 12 and injuring 50. The gunman – a 24-year-old white man, James Holmes, a PhD student pursuing a degree in neuroscience – is believed to have been part of the Occupy Movement and could have been disgruntled because of the scenes in “The Dark Knight Rises” that show the Occupiers in a bad light.
There will be renewed calls to outlaw all guns because of this by politicians with alligator tears who prey on people’s emotions. Mr. Obama has already used this situation in a campaign speech where he wondered what would have happened if his girls had been in that movie theater? Well, obviously, the Secret Service agents guarding Mr. Obama’s daughters would have taken out the perpetrator with their own guns, likely saving numerous lives.
Had James Holmes thought that there might be people inside that theater who had guns of their own with the capability of shooting back at him, he may have thought twice or even three times about doing what he did. Of course, if we listen to morons like Bill Maher, we are to believe that it takes years of training before anyone would be able to have the wherewithal to open fire on an individual who was trying to kill them. Absurd, Mr. Maher.
During the situation in which Representative Giffords was shot in a parking lot in Arizona, we know for a fact that someone near the gunman slapped a magazine out his hands as he was attempting to reload. That person had enough sense to do that. It didn’t take years of training. Had that same person had a gun, do you really think that would have been standing there going, “Duh, Gee Tennessee…what do I do NOW?“ Not likely.
An armed society is a polite society. Only criminals – most of whom carry weapons of all types because they know that the weapon talks for them – will continue to carry guns if/when law-abiding citizens are no longer allowed to do so. The 2nd Amendment is going down the tubes and even if guns are outlawed, the criminals will continue to have guns and then our society will look very much like England where guns have been outlawed because of a very similar treaty with the UN. Citizens there are sick and tired of being run over roughshod by criminals who have guns and other weapons and routinely take advantage of average civilians because they know that the citizens do not have guns.
We’ll talk next about the desire of some to limit our freedom of speech.
