Individual Rights & Gun Ownership

March 11, 2018

Gun Ownership and Individual Right

There should be no doubt about it.

Law abiding American citizens have the right to own firearms.

See this video for the Constitutional truth on this matter.

Second Amendment & Public Safety

March 9, 2018

Second Amendment & Public Safety

I fully support the following video about the Second Amendment, gun control, gun free zones and the protection of Americans of all ages.

I judge that it is a superior presentation because it summarizes nearly all of the relevant thoughts and historical events on this topic I have found in my research on this topic; and it does so in a single short presentation!

How this society handles this horrifying complex problem, literally, is a matter of life and death for countless future innocent American victims. 

It is essential that America find effective ways of balancing the need to keep our citizens safe from harm with the need for law-abiding adults to protect themselves, and their children in an increasingly barbaric society. 

The goal of reestablishing a more moral and civil society is a far more complex matter, well beyond the object of this particular blog.

Please evaluate this video. Ignore the solicitation that follows, if you wish.

To this presentation, I would add just several of ideas.

  1. The federal government cannot know all of the existing designs of all of our schools. Therefore, it cannot know the very best ways to protect all of the students in all of the schools; in every city, hamlet and hollow across America.
  2. The federal government can only insure the preservation of the existence of the Second Amendment and the Constitutionally based freedom of the states and municipalities to experiment with many ways to increase and preserve student and citizen safety from violence.
  3. The federal government can then collect and broadcast these findings to state and local governments so they can select from among those protective tactics most suitable to their own circumstances. 

The protective tactics best suited to local or regional conditions may be metal detectors, iron classroom doors, bullet proof glass, local police security, paid ex-military security, armed and trained special teachers, or many more ideas distilled from both proven and experimental efforts. Seemingly good ideas often fail. Experimental validation is with data collection is the best way to proceed. 

Protected States Rights are the genius of our Founding Fathers. States Rights provide for the benefits of a diversity of local “experimental laboratories”. This amounts to a “free market of ideas”. This approach will most likely produce the wonderful successes of America’s famed free market economy admired and imitated around the world.

A central government dictated one-size-fits-all approach, with limited exceptions, is notorious around the world for its tragic failures.

More Guns For Law-Abiding Citizens=Fewer Murders: Old News

More Guns For Law-Abiding Citizens=Fewer Murders: Old News

Our Founding Father’s designed the 2nd Amendment to allow the voting citizenry to protect itself from the emergence of a tyrannical government. Voting citizens have the right to vote tyranny out of their lives. Failing that, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other early patriots would have urged the citizens of America to rise-up, take-up their arms if necessary, and replace the government in order to again achieve their liberty from governmental subjugation.

This is the hard truth and God forbid it would ever have to come to that.

I believe our Founding Fathers also understood that when good citizens are armed it is a natural guard against the predatory behavior of violent criminals among the peaceful and the frail.

Regardless, on this last point, the truth has been demonstrated over and over again in real-time.

This reality will set you free from fear and irrational vulnerability, but first it will make liberals, progressives and socialist-communists miserable.

Once again (for the umpteenth time) the more guns for law-abiding citizens, the fewer murders.

“Smack-Down” On the Second Amendment

Smack-Down On the Second Amendment

When it comes to the right of self-protection, the following represents my feelings, exactly.

Joe, thanks for sending this powerful defense of the 2nd Amendment my way.  I am happy to showcase this marvelous lady and her courageous story and lesson.

Please view this amazing video on April Fools Day…The fools are on the committee that are given this smack-down.VTM      4/1/11

“Texas  girl, Judy Dorsett Tyler, had the encroachment on her second amendment rights so graphically illustrated. The honorable senator from New York, Chuck Schumer, was getting a little uncomfortable in his chair. The room was absolutely dead quiet throughout her testimony and the gun banners (meaning Senators who want to BAN citizens’ ownership of all guns) absolutely speechless as this little Texas  gal chews them up and spits them out. She knows what the 2nd amendment is really all about. Watch it. You will be glad you did.  And please pass it along.”

Support Your Second Amendment

Support Your Second Amendment

The truth is, when bad people think you may be armed, they act accordingly!

Criminals may be stupid, but they understand the following: Probable immediate painful consequences control behavior.

Lets see to it that law-abiding American citizens retain their right to protect themselves and their loved ones through the use of legally procured firearms.

Protect the innocent with you power to vote the gun grabbers out of office!

FBI Data Again Shows More Guns = Less Crime

Anyone needing proof that fanaticism for gun control hasn’t waned on Capitol Hill, that anti-gunners are — as Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) put it last year — only waiting to “pick the time,” should watch the video of Mexican president Felipe Calderon’s speech to Congress last week, versions of which have been posted on youtube.com. When Calderon asked that the federal “assault weapon” ban be re-imposed, a very large number of U.S. Representatives and Senators present gave him a standing ovation.

However, on Monday the FBI released crime statistics that should cause the applauding anti-gunners to sit on their hands. The statistics indicate that between 2008 and 2009, as gun sales soared, the number of murders in our country decreased 7.2 percent. That amounts to about an 8.2 percent decrease in the per capita murder rate, after the increase in our nation’s legal and illegal population is taken into account. And it translates into about a 10.5 percent decrease in the murder rate between 2004, when the ban expired, and the end of 2009. And finally, it means that in 2009 our nation’s murder rate fell to a 45-year low.

“I Advise The Gun”–Thomas Jefferson

“I Advise The Gun”–Thomas Jefferson

The following is a quote from the Founders Quote Daily

I have encountered this quote from Thomas Jefferson numerous times in my various readings–and I like it.  In my view the Second Amendment is a cornerstone of our freedom.  Therefore, I am please to present it to you on my blog.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, 12/15/09

                                        ———————————

“A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.” –Thomas Jefferson, letter to Peter Carr, 1785

                                     ———————————

Another quote from Founders Quote Daily that relates more directly to the Second Amendmant is the following:

Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States.” –Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
