As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed
First, we must explore what or who is the militia. Is it a pre-organized group? NO. Is it our already Federalized military? NO. The Militia is the Citizenry at large. People like you and me. The Governor of each state has the authority to call on the Militia to protect that state as needed. The Governor can conscript people and commission officers as he/she sees fit . If it were to become necessary, your state would call on you to become a guardian for the people and supplying your own weapon and ammo would be a benefit. Thus the right to bear arms.
|The 2ND Amendment.|
Examining the purpose or intent, you notice a comma after state. Meaning, that part of the sentence is really not necessary but an example of why we have this right. I could just as easily have written,” Defense and protection of the Bill of Rights from subversion being necessary to the security of a free nation, (notice the comma) the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
14 th amend dick act 1860
Nowhere in the Constitution of these United States does it say ,”UNLESS or BECAUSE.” when it comes to the Bill of Rights. I defy anyone to show me wrong. Tell me , when do we become citizens again? We work. We pay taxes. We raise families. We go to Church. Where does it say the Federal Government, which is why the need for guns, have the authority to strip us of our right to own guns? I carry an1858 Remington 44 by the way. Openly and legal. Try and take it. We also have served in our countries military and swore an oath to defend and protect the Constitution. You people who say we should not have guns ,wouldn’t know how that feels to a patriot that wants to defend the freedoms we all enjoy ,for future generations. We have been silent too long. Look at what our government has stripped from us because of our complacency. It’s time to stand up and be heard.
I was judged by a man appointed or elected by the people to judge in their behalf and to be an impartial judge on all matters. In that respect , when someone is judged and sentenced ,fulfills the requirements of said sentence , how much longer must he/she do time before you are satisfied that they can rejoin society? If we are to become productive citizens again, must we continue to be punished for what a judge has considered to be satisfactory to the state as just punishment? Must we continue to do time to satisfy people like you? Why did you join the military? Obviously not to support and defend the Constitution.. You must have joined for economic reasons only to get a reality check you couldn’t cash. Understand this, every time we allow a freedom or right to be chiseled away , we give up a voice to stop the next installment of Marxism.
Our Founding Fathers viewed a federal government with trepidation. It was George Washington who said “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.”
As to our Constitution, it was Patrick Henry who stated “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”
Seatbelts was just a trial to see if we could be duped . Child safety seats was a clincher. Now the radicals know we are asleep and can be subverted. You swore an oath . Time to defend.
As you might see, I hate seatbelts laws and can see that small freedoms ,such as this one, is a stepping stone to complete control of all our actions. Give up one freedom and you lost ten more. As a result …
