Washington, DC—In the seat of American political power, gun rights have been unlawfully compromised away by our politicians for more than four decades.
The anti-gun rights attacks have almost exclusively come from the far political Left. I see dark and nefarious motives here since the political Left detests self-reliance, liberty and freedom except for of course, abortion.
The Left insists the Constitution needs to change with the political wind without that difficult amendment process. The idea of the founding fathers had was to prevent our Capitalist form of government from being hijacked by those who would corrupt and destroy the system with a simple majority.
Frankly, many of our Presidents, Representatives and Senators are or have been Socialists, Communists and of course criminals. Unfortunately most politicians have the desire to control, exploit and loot the property of others programed into their DNA.
Don’t let all those broad similes and firm handshakes fool you. They carefully craft their images to that of offering benevolence to their constituents, but they are in this for themselves. They all enter office as middle-class people and manage to leave or retire as multi-millionaires.
Politicians hate running for reelection and they have conspired at every opportunity to rig the political process. They invented extensive and complicated gerrymandering and campaign finance schemes they sold voters as necessary for “fair” elections. Their only goal has been incumbent protection at all cost.
Governments work better for the citizens when politicians are fighting among themselves. When they all get along the red flag of corruption is waiving.
Look out when a Conservative suddenly votes for excessive taxation or compromises our freedom away. That is a sure sign that bribery or extortion is involved.
Too many of our politicians would end elections in a flash if they had the power to do that. They are afraid of the voters especially when they push extortionate taxation, over-regulation or curb our freedom. They all fear revolution as a reality.
The Right to Keep and Bear Arms:
There has never been a despotic dictator in world history that did not order draconian weapon laws or ordered weapon confiscation. Our founding fathers understood this and the necessity for an armed well-regulated population to fight tyranny.
Our politicians created our formal police agencies during the mid-nineteenth century. Unfortunately the cops were not there to protect anything but the corrupt politicians, their business operations and wealth.
Police officers were strictly hired on the patronage system and were too often used exclusively to victimize their sponsor’s political opposition. Cops became the bagmen for politicians, extorting from businesses legal and otherwise.
To legitimize the cops they had to be given an active role in public safety. In the large urban areas citizens were told to abdicate their responsibilities of defending themselves and families to these “much better qualified” armed government strangers wearing uniforms.
Americans were told never to take the law into their own hands but to let the cops handle public safety. Police professionalized their image and training however when responding to urban violence they still have a huge disadvantage. They can’t tell the criminals from the good guys unlike you and your family members.
That failed and pathetic, “leave it to the authorities” mindset was never so evident, then when a group of skinny Islamic hijackers took over four passenger jets on September 11, 2001.
When cops respond to calls involving life-threatening violence they still have a tendency to take the losing injured parties to the hospital while arresting the uninjured winners. The cops are not clairvoyant and we have thousands of wrongful convictions to make this fact abundantly clear.
Our law enforcement system is way over-rated by films and television. The fact is they only arrive after the crimes have occurred just in time to clean up the mess. Then they conduct an investigation but again they are forced to guess what the truth may be.
The only way to insure actual protection for you and your family is through aggressive and positive self-help. Weapons, training in their use along with the law and liability of the justifiable use of deadly force are your only option for survival.
That brings us to the National Rifle Association and Second Amendment Foundation. They are supported by millions of members just like me. The gun manufactures and dealers have their own National Shooting Sports Foundation to service their political needs.
The NRA’s millions of dues paying members simply demand that our interests and gun rights be zealously and uncompromisingly protected.
Some on the political Left will suggest to follow the NRA money like there is something evil going on. The fact is the NRA members and their sympathizers care much more about their safety and liberty than money. Without liberty money is meaningless. Our money is far better spent on lobbying for and supporting politicians that protect our rights.
Gun ownership has never been higher in the USA and the crime rate has been steadily declining.
Since the Supreme Court landmark Heller and McDonald cases, gun laws have been struck down and repealed nearly everywhere. The sky has not fallen. The fact is we are safer than ever. The guns our in our hands are far more effective than some 911 operator on the phone.
American gun owners will never again tolerate a Waco or Ruby Ridge holocaust conducted by bucket helmeted, jackboot wearing government thugs.
The Supreme Court has reaffirmed our rights and those politicians that foolishly try to violate our rights will do so at their peril. Americans have always shown their willingness to shed blood for precious liberty.
