We The People Will Keep Our Arms. Thank You.

2A-Social-ResponsibilityKilling, murder, is not a good thing.  It is evil-intentioned.

However, every time there is a mass shooting the gun-grabbers take to the media calling for banning the Second Amendment, or in some way infringing on our unalienable and Constitutionally guaranteed right to bear arms.

The fact is … guns do not kill people.

People. Kill. People.

People do use guns as an instrument of death. But they also use knives, poison, and with myriad other devices and methods. Though no one calls for banning those.

When a drunk or even sober driver takes to the road and fatally injures someone no one blames the car or truck or whatever they were driving. They blame the driver, the person.

Rightfully so.

Why is it different with guns?

All Second Amendment supporters know why the Second Amendment was written.

It wasn’t so people could go hunting.

It wasn’t so people could participate in sporting events.

It wasn’t so people could only defend their homes.

However, these are the main talking points politicians, judges, celebrities and others claim as the reason We the People do not need a 30-round clip, or an “assault rifle,” or, or, or.

They are either lying when they say these things, or are very ignorant of our history, or have a very specific agenda to take away arms for power and control.

Our Founders were very adamant about our Second Amendment.  The primary purpose as stated, is for the “security of a free state.”

2A-Flag-MadisonAs Founder Richard Henry Lee said, “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”

Tench Coxe, another Founder stated it this way, “Whereas civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.”

And several other Founders voiced similar thoughts.

Yet, those very same people who want to take guns away say that tyranny and the like could never happen, it is an out-dated notion.

Wrong.

Tyranny will ONLY never happen as long as We the People keep our arms.

2A-British-are-ComingTaking guns away from law-abiding Citizens does NOT make any city, county or state safer.  Just check those areas that have the strictest gun laws and you will generally find higher murder rates than the norm.

So, if people kill people, go after those people.  Whether they used a gun or a knife or a hammer, go after the person.

Do not come after arms of American Citizens who are, by-and-large, peaceful and do follow the law.

Closing with the thoughts of Founder St. George Tucker, “Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”

Think Adolf Hilter, Mao Tze Tung, Josef Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, etc.

We the People will keep our arms. Thank you.

The entertaining and informative In Search of Liberty movie is a great refresher (if it’s been a while) or educational tool (for those who know very little) about our U.S. Constitution, and is a movie that All Americans should watch.

Memorial Day 2018 – Recognizing Those Who Died While Serving

Decorating graves of soldiers with flowers is an ancient tradition.  In America, while there is some evidence it occurred prior to, the practice took on a more-known and more-practiced tradition during and after the United States Civil War.

Memorial Day, earlier known as Decoration Day, is a tradition of remembering, honoring and decorating the graves of those who died while serving in the military with flowers and/or U.S. Flags.

This specific holiday provides a ritual expression to the themes of death, sacrifice and re-birth and, in general, provides the people of America with a renewed sense of nationalism.

Whether every U.S. citizen realizes it or not, the unparalleled freedom and liberty that we have and enjoy is definitely not free.  It was taken with weapons and lives during the American Revolution and it has persevered through the centuries where tyrants, fascists and uncompromising terrorists have attempted world domination and control, again through the use of weapons and the loss of life.

While war is not the ideal solution to world political issues it has been necessary when those suppressive and oppressive individuals, such as Adolph Hitler, do not respond to reason or diplomacy, unless it was for another country to unconditionally surrender to the dictator’s every wish and whim. During and following those times, when soldiers answer the call to defend their country, we are eternally grateful to them.

So, to all who served, who gave their all and more, we remember and honor you…and we thank you for your ultimate sacrifice in helping us keep our freedom intact.

Constitution Day 2017

Gadsden Flag - Don't Tread On MeWith many of our rights and freedoms under assault at this time, it makes sense to honor our Founding Fathers for the work that they did over two centuries ago.

When they had experienced enough tyranny from King George III of England, when their pleas and requests were shunned or ignored, when the Brits ordered trade blockades, and more, much much more, they went to war and drafted and signed the Declaration of Independence, on July 4, 1776.  They did so knowing full well that it would mean losing everything if the Revolutionary War was lost.  But America prevailed.  It won its freedom.

They were quite learned men, many of them knew historically what had made for good and for bad governments, knowing full well that a good government was one that did not encroach upon the citizenry.  Yes, they haggled and argued and compromised.  But they never lost sight of the end result and that was the United States Constitution, formally signed exactly 230 years ago today, on September 17, 1787.

The document that our Founding Fathers created and signed was like no other ever devised, especially when the Bill of Rights was added on December 15, 1791.  Our freedom, as long as the US Constitution is followed, is guaranteed.

Signing_of_the_Constitution_of_the_United_StatesThere are those who question a document 200+ years old and how it can be relevant today.  There is an easy answer.  In the manner in which it was written.  There were no time-specific conditions, other than handling the then-current debt.  The Constitution and the Bill of Rights were created by forward-looking men, men who knew the world would change and provided us with something that could and would grow with us.

It is unfortunate, however, that we have allowed that precious document to be “interpreted” to mean what it does not say.  As one example, when the Courts decided that prayers could not be said in school those justices were violating our Constitution.  If there are some who do not wish to pray in school, that is fine.  But there is nothing unconstitutional about saying prayer in school.  Period.

Losing that portion of one of our rights should infuriate any Patriot because what follows is that there are other rights, other freedoms that get taken from us, gradually and (now) generally under the guise of “national security.”  We need to watch our present-day politicians, as they are not statesmen of 200 years  ago who carry on open discussion, and even arguments, to reach a consensus of what is right “for the people.”  No, politicians of today are bought and paid for by myriad individuals and concerns.

Forgive me as I have strayed from my original thought, thanking our Founding Fathers for their excellent work.  For their work should be admired as much as it should be followed.  Incredible documents outlining our rights, our freedoms, our liberty.

In our movie, In Search of Liberty, we educate all Americans, in a dramatic yet humorous manner, the basics of what exactly the US Constitution and Bill of Rights guarantee us, i.e., “We the People.”  All those who have viewed it come away new information they did not know before and with a renewed sense of both pride and purpose as an American.

Over For Now.
