“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.” Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
“Arms. Anything that a man wears for his defense, or takes in his hands as a weapon.” Black’s Law Dictionary, by Henry Campbell Black, M. A., Sixth Edition, p.109, 1990.
“I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” George Mason, Co-author of the Second Amendment during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788.
“Friends, this is not about guns; it is about control. And this issue is not to be overlooked, because gun rights stand between a free country and an enslaved, possibly an exterminated, people.” Last Resistance: http://lastresistance.com/1416/gun-control-advocates-think-the-second-amendment-is-up-for-debate-its-not/
Popular Sovereignty is under Frontal Attack! The very foundation of Our Liberty is preserved by the God-given Right of We the Sovereign People to Self-Defense. The Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees that Right by prohibiting government’s infringement in any manner! (It doesn’t give us the Right, only guarantees it will not be infringed as long as the Constitution stands…!)
What is it about, “shall not be infringed” that its attackers don’t understand? Nothing! They understand perfectly:
IT IS ABOUT CONTROL!!!
“The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.” Edmund Burke British Statesman, 1784.
- People with the desire to RULE, in order to delude the People, pretend to believe this guarantee does not include certain types of Arms or the Ammunition to use them. They are wrong. The Founding Fathers, having just been forced to take Arms against the Ruling Tyranny, and having WON, well-knew exactly what they meant! Just as Mankind throughout History has known:
“Arms. Anything that a man wears for his defense, or takes in his hands as a weapon.” Black’s Law Dictionary, Henry Campbell Black, M. A., Sixth Edition, p.109, 1990.
- People who desire to rule, in order to delude the People, loudly claim that certain guns and now, even ammunition, must be banned to stop “Gun Violence.” Guns are inanimate objects. They do not commit violence or any other act. People who are criminals, commit violence using a gun.
A. Every place guns are not restricted, crime committed with a gun drops:
Switzerland requires that every household have a gun. The government even supplies the guns! Switzerland also has the lowest crime involving the use of a gun in the WORLD!
B. Every place guns are restricted or banned, crime committed by criminals using a gun, rises. Gun Free Zones in America invite criminals to bring their own guns and fire at-will! As of the terrible crime at Newtown, Connecticut, ALL BUT ONE of the recent mass killings in America, have been in Gun Free Zones.
- Those prosecuting the War on the Second Amendment, loudly proclaim that new Gun Control measures must be imposed. Targetting so-called “assault rifles” – a gross misnomer believed by those who do not know the facts – they declare that sale of these weapons must be banned, along with high-capacity magazines, and strict limits on the number of bullets in the magazine! And, yet:
The Gun Debate: Gun crime prosecutions on decline, amid call for more laws
By William La Jeunesse
Published February 25, 2013
“…’don’t lie for the other guy.” The campaign message is intended to stop those with clean criminal records from buying firearms for felons who legally can’t buy guns on their own.
“The message underscores the full-court press in Washington to adopt sweeping new gun control laws, from universal background checks to a ban on military-style rifles and large ammunition magazines.
“However, recent studies show the Obama administration has not enforced many gun laws already on books — with gun crime prosecutions hitting a decade low in 2011, down 40 percent from their peak under President George W. Bush in 2004, according to federal data crunched by Syracuse University….”

Further, they choose to ignore or deny the FACT that criminals do NOT buy guns at the local gun store or gun show! Statistics claimed by Gun Control Advocates regarding background checks, are grossly in error, or false.
Also from the above article, “…cited data from the National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS), which found in 2010, of 6 million Americans who applied to buy a gun, less than 2 percent — or 76,000 — were denied. Of those, the ATF referred 4,732 cases for prosecution. Of them, just 44 were prosecuted, and only 13 were punished for lying or buying a gun illegally.”
And, from the same article, in the spirit of JURY NULLIFICATION:
“A source also said so-called ‘lie and try’ cases have little jury appeal. They are essentially about lying on a form where the person was ultimately denied the ability to purchase the gun. Juries, in these cases, have a tendency to question whether any harm was done, because the individual did not get the gun.”

- Without shame, they use the Memory of the Children Murdered at Sandy Hook, and Small Children as Pawns on the daïs, in their all-out assault on the Right of Law-abiding Citizens to Keep and Bear Arms!
- They falsely blame an inanimate object for committing, “Gun Violence!” The gun has no consciousness nor mobility; it cannot choose nor perpetrate violence. Only the criminal wielding it chooses to commit violence.
In the News 2/21/13, a Columbine Survivor, Evan Todd, tells Greta Van Susteren, Fox News:
“Obama gun proposals not what we need.” Survivor of Colorado school shooting rampage doesn’t see solutions in president’s gun control plans. See the video at: http://video.foxnews.com/v/2181278111001/columbine-survivor-obama-gun-proposals-not-what-need?intcmp=related?playlist_id=928378949001
“If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.” *
Two recent articles DENY claims that Gun Laws will have a deterring effect on violent crime:
FEDS ADMIT: GUN LAWS WON’T SLOW CRIME
Department of Justice report undermines bans
Published: February 18, 2013 by Garth Kant
“…so-called “assault weapons” are not a major contributor to gun crime….”
“…not a major factor in deaths caused by firearms, nor would an ‘assault weapons’ ban be effective….”
“…no significant link between “assault weapons” and murders….”
“’Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to U.S. gun homicides and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence,’ the report said.”
“The document, titled ‘Summary of Select Firearm Violence Prevention Strategies,’ also sees no epidemic of mass shootings.”
“‘Fatalities from mass shootings (those with 4 or more victims in a particular place and time) account on average for 35 fatalities per year,’ the report said.” http://www.wnd.com/2013/02/feds-admit-gun-laws-wont-slow-crime/
Another article from World Net Daily, on January 10, 2013:
See what gun laws do in Chicago!
Rahm Emanuel’s gang violence problem leaves dozens dead from baseball bats
By Michael Thompson
“Less than 1 percent of the murders in Chicago between 2003-2011 were with what the Chicago Police Department classifies as a ‘rifle,’ which is what an AR-15 would be classified.
“Over the period of time, 31 people were murdered with a baseball bat in Chicago, which is almost comparable to the rate at which ‘rifles’ were used as a murder weapon over the same period of time.”
[I am researching more Pro-Gun Control quotes to verify authenticity, and will include them in the future. Itasca]
THE TRUE GOAL!!!
“If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an out-right ban, picking up every one of them… ‘Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ’em all in,’ I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.” (Emphasis added) Senator Dianne Feinstein: on CBS-TV’s “60 Minutes”, February 5, 1995
by Tad Cronn:
Total Semiauto Gun Ban Hidden in Feinstein Bill
“The list of specific firearms that would be banned by Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s gun-control bill is a smokescreen for a trick of language that could result in a ban on nearly all semiautomatic guns, according to a gun law expert who has reviewed the proposed legislation….” (Emphasis added)
* And, finally, an excerpt from a site I found while seeking the author of this notorious statement – I wasn’t really surprised by who said it. Also, according to answers.yahoo.com, it is quoted from Hitler’s “Mein Kampf”. [June22, 2013: the page is no longer available on the answers.yahoo.com site. Itasca]
When Liberals Lie About Guns
by Colonel Dan
The Cowboy Chronicle
“If you wish the sympathy of the broad masses, you must tell them the crudest and most stupid things.” ~ Adolph Hitler ~
When someone lies trying to sell you anything, you can bet it’s because they’re hiding something. They know if you discovered the truth, you wouldn’t buy whatever it is they were trying to sell. And that is why you’ll never hear the truth from Liberals that sell “gun control” as the pathway to crime control.
Anti-gun Liberals have flat lied about the “crisis” of gun violence, particularly where children are concerned. These stories of children dying due to guns (13 per day) are pure bullchips. In fact, gun deaths involving children under 14 are at the lowest in years according the Center for Disease Control–142 accidental deaths in 1997 and gun homicides for that age bracket totaled 346 for that year. Swimming beat those death rates among children at 1,010 in 1997!
Another fact you never hear from gun controllers are the instances revealing the estimated 2.5 million cases annually where people are saved from harm because of guns…. (Emphasis added)
