If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight?

solgunsI feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.

About a month ago I let the “democracy” word slip in a discussion with a fellow blogger. I know better. Americans have been conditioned to use this term. It’s not an accurate term and it never has been a correct term to describe our form of government. The truth is that the United States of America is a constitutional republic. This is similar to a democracy because our representatives are selected by democratic elections, but ultimately our representatives are required to work within the framework of our constitution. In other words, even if 90% of Americans want something that goes against our founding principles, they have no right to call for a violation of constitutional rights.

If you are religious you might choose to think of it this way… Say that members of your congregation decide that mass fornication is a good thing. Do they have the right to change the teachings of your God? The truth is the truth. It doesn’t matter how many people try to stray from it. Did I just compare our founders to God? In a way I did, but please note that I am not trying to insult anyone. For the purpose of the American Government our constitution and founders who wrote it are much like God is to believers. It is the law. It is indisputable.

Our founders did not want a “democracy” for they feared a true democracy was just as dangerous as a monarchy. The founders were highly educated people who were experienced in defending themselves against tyranny. They understood that the constitution could protect the people by limiting the power of anyone to work outside of it much better than a pure system of popularity. A system of checks and balances was set up to help limit corruption of government and also the potential for an “immoral majority” developing within the American People. We have forgotten in this country that we are ultimately ruled by a constitution.

Why is a democracy potentially just as dangerous as a monarchy? Let’s look at something that Benjamin Franklin said because it answers that question more fully and succinctly than I can.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -Benjamin Franklin

Even 230+ years ago our founders were perceptive enough to realize that democracy was a dangerous form of government. How so? Because the citizens of a country can become just as corrupt as any government. We have seen evidence of this throughout history. Ask Native Americans and African-Americans if this population can become corrupt.

I think in 2012 we are seeing evidence of what Franklin was trying to tell us. Just because a majority of people may support certain ideas it does not mean that those ideas are just. In simple terms, just because most Americans love our president and voted for him, it does not mean that he has the power to go against our constitutional rights.

Next I’d like to review the text of the second amendment. It is very clear. This is the law of this land. So when Senator Feinstein or President Obama talk about taking your guns, you need to think about something. Are they honoring their sworn oath to uphold the constitution?

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.

supremeThis is a pretty clear statement. The fact is that it took 232 years for the Supreme Court to even rule on this amendment because it has never been successfully challenged. In 2008 a case of Columbia v. Heller the Supreme Court ruled that a handgun ban in Washington D.C. was unconstitutional. One also has to take this into consideration. The Supreme Court supports your right to own guns. If you want to research this decision further you can start here.

For those who try to debate the spirit of the 2nd amendment, they are truly no different from people who will try to take Biblical quotes out of context to try to support their immoral decisions. The founders were very clear on the intent of the 2nd amendment. Let me share a few quick quotes here:

The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. -George Washington

The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -Samuel Adams

founderspicI could find hundreds of quotes like these. This country was built on the right to bear arms. It was built on the rights of an individual to bear arms, regardless of what his government or neighbor happened to think. This is crystal clear. Ironically the people who voice their opinions against this right have their free speech protected by your guns. Without guns in this country, all other amendments become null and void, simply because “We the People” will lose our power of enforcement.

We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple.

A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much  in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if I was gunned down, but in the end I would be the only true American among us.

Our framers were very clear on this. If my government comes to take my guns, they are violating one of my constitutional rights that is covered by the 2nd amendment.

soulonfireIt is not my right, at that point, but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty. What I am telling you is something that many are trying to soft sell, and many others have tried to avoid putting into print, but I am going to say it. The time for speaking in code is over.

If they come for our guns then it is our constitutional right to put them six feet under. You have the right to kill any representative of this government who tries to tread on your liberty. I am thinking about self-defense and not talking about inciting a revolution. Re-read Jefferson’s quote. He talks about a “last resort.” I am not trying to start a Revolt, I am talking about self-defense. If the day for Revolution comes, when no peaceful options exist, we may have to talk about that as well. None of us wants to think about that, but please understand that a majority can not take away your rights as an American citizen. Only you can choose to give up your rights.

Congress could pass gun ban legislation by a 90%+ margin and it just would not matter. I think some people are very unclear on this. This is the reason we have a Supreme Court, and though I do not doubt that the Supreme Court can also become corrupt, in 2008 they got it right. They supported the constitution. It does not matter what the majority supports because America is not a democracy. A constitutional republic protects the rights of every single citizen, no matter what their “elected servants” say. A majority in America only matters when the constitution is not in play.

I just wrote what every believer in the constitution wants to say, and what every constitutional blogger needs to write. The truth of the matter is that this type of speech is viewed as dangerous and radical or subversive, and it could gain me a world of trouble that I do not want. It is also the truth. To make myself clear I will tell you again. If they come for your guns it is your right to use those guns against them and to kill them. You are protected by our constitution.

Most of the articles I am reading on the subject are trying to give you clues without just coming out and saying it. I understand that because certain things in this country will get you on a list that you don’t want to be on. I may well be on that list. This blog is small and growing so I may not be there yet, but I have dreams. I also have my own list of subversives and anyone who attempts to deny my constitutional rights is on that list.

I am not the “subversive” here, it is the political representatives who are threatening to take away my inalienable rights. If they come to take my guns and I leave a few of them wounded or dead, and I somehow survive, I have zero doubt that I will spend a long time in prison and may face an execution. But I would much rather be a political prisoner than a slave.

If I go down fighting then I was not fighting to harm these human beings. I was simply defending my liberty and yours. It is self-defense and it is what our country was built on. We won our freedom in self-defense. We would not be ruled by a tyrannical government in the 1770’s and we will not be ruled in 2012 by a tyrannical government. There is no difference.

This is a case of right and wrong. As of now the 2nd amendment stands. It has never been repealed. If Feinstein or Barack have a problem with the constitution then they should be removed from office. They are not defending the constitution which they have sworn an oath to protect. It is treasonous to say the least. They would likely say the same about me, but I have the constitution, the founders, and the supreme court on my side. They only have their inflated egos.

I am not writing this to incite people. I am writing this in hopes that somehow I can make a tiny difference. I have no idea how many of my neighbors have the will to defend their constitutional rights. 2%? 20%? I am afraid that 20% is a high number, unfortunately. When push comes to shove many people may give up and submit to being ruled. I believe that our government is banking on this.

What I do know is that this country was founded by people who had balls the size of Texas and Patriotic Americans take shit off of no one, especially our own government. For evidence of that, you might research the Revolutionary War. My question is how many Patriots are left?

I would hope that our officials come to realize that, regardless of our numbers, we still exist because they are calling Patriotic Americans to action. They are making us decide if we want to die free or submit to their rule. I can not tell you where you should stand on that. I do know that it may make the difference between living a life of freedom or slavery.

thinkingYou must start thinking about this because I believe that the day is coming soon and I personally believe it has already been planned. Not all conspiracy theories are hogwash. They may throw down the gauntlet soon and my suggestion is that you prepare yourself to react.

I mean no disrespect to our elected officials but they need to understand that “We the People” will not be disarmed. If they proceed then it is they that are provoking us and we will act accordingly. We are within our rights to do so.

For those who are in support of taking the guns, you need to ask yourself a very important question, and I am not just talking about the politicians, because if you support them, you have chosen your side.

Are you willing to die to take my guns?

    • Rob Price says:

      You have a “right” and an “obligation” to defend this country, it’s Constitution, and it’s flag from, “all enemies, foreign and domestic…”. This “domestic” means from a corrupt President, Military, Senate, or any other group, organization, or faction thereof. “we the people…” have a Constitutional obligation to defend this country as a Civilian Militia(Second Amendment) if our military is unable to or deemed unfit to defend the country. It is up to each “CITIZEN” to decide how far they wish to exercise their Constitutional Rights-but, to remain a “Free Republic” under our Constitution it WILL take all people of this country to save it.

      • James Andrews says:

        The thing to do is keep your eyes and ears open; in New Yor state, thansk to their Nazi governor and other leftists, they have been confiscating certain weapons from completely law abiding gun owners, For now, the thing to do is fight them first, in the courts, as well as re-arm yourselves with guns via private sellers(just be careful in the Nazi states). The big thing to watch out for, (and we all need to do this), is to make sure this does not happen on a national level! Because the minute that they declare this on a nationwide scale, that they are disarming us, that is when the crap will hit the fan. But they will be the ones responsible for the bloodshed! And make sure they take the first shot. I hope that it never comes to this, but I also do not trust this president or this administration either. I do have a lot of faith in my own state’s authorities and law enforcement, and I belive that most would stand by us should something of this terrible nature ever occur.

    • 7delta says:

      Marc, I went over and looked at your site. Nicely done. Just wanted to say, I’m really glad to see the gay community is “getting it” and is being pro-active in defending yourselves.

      Now, if you haven’t already, learn everything you can about Islam, from the horse’s mouth. If you already know all this, forgive me, but it’s very important, so I’ll post it, just in case.

      There are only two reliable sources about Islamic doctrine: Mohammed and Allah, not CAIR, ISNA, the local imam, the nice Muslim guy that works with you, not the Administration, not any politician telling you Islam is a religion of peace, that the problem is access to guns and that you’re a hater and an islamophobe, if you don’t agree. Nope. The problem is Islam and Islam’s access to us.

      Some good sources: To understand Islam, you need to read their trilogy of “holy” works, the Qu’ran, Hadith and Sira. The Qu’ran is considered the direct word of Allah, like the 10 Commandments. It’s not arranged by the time period in which it was written or by any real rhyme or reason. It’s arranged from longest verse to shortest. There are two periods in which it was written: Meccan and Median.

      The early verses are the Meccan “can’t-we-all-get-along/you-have-your-religion-and-I-have-mine” suras (verses). This was the peaceful period, written before Mohammed and the 150 followers he gathered over 13 years of preaching his new religion were expelled from Mecca for generally being a nuisance. He and his followers migrated (the hizrah–migration to spread Islam) to Medina where Mohammed discovered the force of politics worked better to increase his flock than the bad rip-off of Christianity/Judaism of his Meccan period. The hizrah is the birth of Islam.

      It’s important to know that those peaceful suras, when in conflict with the latter Median suras, are abrogated by the latter ones. They are not peaceful.

      Hadith is the story of everything Mohammed said and did. Since Mohammed is considered the most perfect of men, Muslims are to model their lives on his. ISIS has not done one single thing Mohammed didn’t do.

      The Sira is Mohammed’s biography.

      These three sources are fundamental. The Qu’ran isn’t easy reading, mostly because it’s irrational, as Thomas Jefferson accurately pointed out before sending the Marines to “the shores of Tripoli.” The illogical arrangement of its content doesn’t help, so you might want to start by reading some hadiths first, just to get used to different expressions, find out what they mean, and the differences in a Middle eastern mind set from a Western one. Islam is a study in “opposites” and cognitive disassociation. Islam can hold two completely opposing ideas at the same time about almost everything.

      64% of the trilogy’s content is political. A mere 36% deals with religious aspects. Islam is a totalitarian political ideology of conquest and forced submission to Shariah law, veiled as a religion that serves to support the political. Shariah law governs every, and I mean “every”, aspect of a person’s life.

      A good book to see the different Qu’ranic periods in conjunction with Shariah law is “Reliance of the Traveller.” Two L’s. Jihad, as defined by Shariah law, is aptly explained and justified.

      After I began studying Islam, as presented to Muslims, not Westerners (kufirs/non-believers), I was able to discern who among us is accurate in their view of Islam and who wasn’t. The most accurate are the people most often demonized as haters and islamophobes, like Robert Spencer, Pamela Geller, Frank Gaffney, Stephen Coughlin, Dr. Bill Warner, etc. Look them up and listen to videos of their presentations.

      Coughlin has written an excellent resource book, “Catastrophic Failure.” It’s hard reading too, because he uses Arabic terms (with definitions) as he should, and the information is dense, but it’s worth wading through, then using it as a resource to look up specific issues.

      Islamic doctrine is fine with sex with a child of either gender and with pubescent boys, as long as the adult male is in the dominant position. However, homosexuality is punishable by death. There’s that cognitive disassociation again.

      As you learn about Islamic doctrine and Shariah law, you’ll understand why the LGBT community–all non-believers in Islam–must come to grips with the truth about Islam and that we have to educate ourselves about it from original Islamic sources, why people lie about it, that lying is completely acceptable, even obligatory to advance Islam, learn to protect yourselves with all the skill and professionalism you can, then use your political power to help keep us all safe by demanding the truth be told and that the influx of Muslim refugees and immigrants be immediately stopped. ISIS has told us they have infiltrated the refugee flow and they have. They’re not the first or only jihadi group to do so. We know jihadists are coming illegally over the borders too and overstay visas, then disappear into the interior, but we don’t know where or how many. It doesn’t take many and I assure you, there’s an army prepared and waiting for their time in this country now. Remember the few 9-11 hijackers murdered over 3000 people in the span of a few hours. This administration has allowed or brought in over a million within the last few years alone. Imagine only 10% being jihadists, but the actual estimation is 15-17% and is likely quite low, at that. The administration is doing all it can to bring in as many as possible before its time runs out. It’s not the only culpable administration, but it has put the pedal to the metal.

      I wish you the best, Marc, as my American sibling. Your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness is yours, granted to you by the God of Nature and Natural Law and protected by the U.S. Constitution. Government has no authority to take your unalienable rights away, for any reason, except if you relinquish one or all by criminal act or by your own choice. You are the individual sovereign possessor of all your rights.

      I, and a lot of people like me, have your back. I am Christian, a conservative, a Constitutional originalist, and I hate no one, even if and when we disagree, including Muslims. I will not abide the lies and fairy tales we’re told about Islam, nor remain silent as my siblings are murdered in cold blood. We may squabble, but no one better not put a hand on this family. Our lives and liberty depend on the truth about Islam and spreading it to others. If you don’t recall the wording, look up Art. 3, Sec. 3 of the Constitution. If the shoe fits, our political class can wear it.

      Last point: It’s not my opinion. It’s Islam’s: There is no radical or moderate Islam. There is only Islam. There are no radical or moderate Muslims. There are only devout and apostate Muslims.

      Then, there are Americans. Welcome to the party, pal. You’ve made America proud.
