Enslave America…Disarm the people! Punish Law Abiding Citizens

☆astac☆~PWCM 2013/01/27 01:50:23

Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Law, a highly influential legal commentary at the time of Second Amendments framing, was the standard for American attorneys and judges. Concerning the right of citizens to own and use arms, Blackstone declared: “The…right of the [citizens] that I shall at present mention, is that of having arms for their defense…[This is] the natural right of resistance and self-preservation when the sanctions of society and laws are found insufficient to restrain the violence of oppression…[T]o vindicate these rights when actually violated or attacked, the [citizens] are entitled, in the first place, to the regular administration and free course of justice in the courts of law; next, to the right of petitioning the [government] for redress of grievances; and lastly, to the right of having and using arms for self-preservation and defense.”

Justice Joseph Story, historically recognized as one of the “Fathers of American Jurisprudence”, having authored perhaps the most authoritative legal commentary ever written on the U.S. Constitution declared: “…The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the [catalyst] of the liberties of a republic since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them…There is certainly no small danger that indifference may lead to disgust, and disgust to contempt, and thus gradually undermine all the protection intended by this clause of our nations’ Bill of Rights.”

Our Founding Fathers under whose watchful eye both the government and the Second Amendment were created confirms every citizen the right to be armed. Consider just these few:

George Washington, U.S. President, Signer of the Constitution: “A free people ought…to be armed.”

James Madison, U.S. President, Signer of the Constitution, a framer of the Second Amendment in the first Congress: “[T]he advantage of being armed [is an advantage which] the Americans possess over people of almost every other nation…n the several kingdoms of Europe…the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

George Mason, Delegate to the Constitutional Convention, ‘Father of the Bill of Rights’: “… when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great-Britain, the British parliament was advised…to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually.”

Do these strongly held views ring prophetic?

American citizen’s individual right to ‘keep and bear arms’ was also incorporated as a part of the public defense. Passing the Militia Act of 1792, Congress defined the “militia of the United States” NOT as any organized military body; rather it included almost every adult male in the United States. Under the act, each adult was required – by law – to possess a firearm and a minimum supply of ammunition and military equipment; the militia law continues in force today, in fact the current law still states, “The militia of the United States consist of all able-bodied males at least 17 [and]… under 45 years of age…”

Our federal Constitution was not formed unconstrained from the ratifying States; they created a Republic. The common views held by the States significantly impacted the Second Amendments language. It is unreasonable to argue that the Second Amendment established a new right to self-protection contrary to that which existed throughout the nation. The States unconditionally resolved the debate with ‘shall not be infringed.’

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson. With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'. During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED! If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends. SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!! IT'S A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET. Spread the word everywhere you can that you are a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment! It's time to speak loud before they try to silence and disarm us.You're not imagining it, history shows that governments always manipulate tragedies to attempt to disarm the people.

    Defense Authorization Act;This new bill, which passed the Senate with an alarming majority, allows the military to arrest American citizens on American soil and keep them without trial. It’s being called the “America the Battlefield” bill, because it treats your front yard like a battlefield — and every citizen like a potential enemy. It basically puts a giant asterisk next to the Bill of Rights saying, “unless we don’t feel like it,” and coupled with the Patriot Act disolves most of the bill of rights.

    It's not that I'm trying to be bold necessarily, but I suspect that when the smoke clears from this attempt, certain elitists are about to learn an important lesson in meddling with the inalienable rights of the perceived, lowly middle class American.

    You have that wrong there is no guilty to be punished. They are already being punished. The justice system works. What they are doing to called Precrime. In that case anyone with a potential is considered a criminal. IE Law abiding Gun owners are now crazed criminals.

    It is just another sign that our society is breaking down. sense 911 we have been scared and will give up any freedom to stay safe. The fact that we have people running around shooting people is just part of the signs that our society is breaking down.
