Lets start with this simple statement: It is the duty of every citizen to be armed.
99% of the liberals out there will object to that statement. So let me follow up with some evidence to back up by statement.
Thomas Jefferson – For a people who are free and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security.
Thomas Jefferson – “We must train and classify the whole of our male citizens, and make military instruction a regular part of collegiate education. We can never be safe till this is done.”
As per Thomas Jefferson, it is our duty as citizens to own and to be trained in the use of a firearm, and to have a proper education.
When the U.S. was founded, there was no provisioned military. It was the civilian militia that fought for our freedom.
The problem is, liberals do not understand the concept of personal liberties, personal freedoms or civic duties.
Civic duty supports the idea of the armed citizen, which supports the armed militia It is the duty of every able bodied male to answer to call to arms to protect the nation.
How are you supposed to do your duty as an able bodied adult if you do not own a firearm?
When was the last time you saw the police harass armed protestors?
When was the last time you saw the police firing rubber bullets or bean bags on unarmed protestors?
During the occupy movement there was a guy who showed up at a protest armed with an AK-47. The person was interviewed by the police, and nothing ever happened.
In just all 50 states, except 2 or 3, it is perfectly legal to carry a long arm in public.
The guy with the AK-47 was well within his rights, and was not prohibited by state law to carry his rifle.
It sure was funny how the local government officials and police reacted when an armed citizen showed up.
Not a single rubber bullet or bean bag round was fired that day.
Think about it for a minute, just about every act of police violence has been carried out on unarmed citizens.
What happened when the ATF tried to raid the Branch Davidians in Waco? The ATF got the crap shot out of them. Next time serve your search warrants and arrest warrants like law abiding agents of the government. Go around breaking into windows, you can expect to get shot like common criminals.
Private ownership of firearms is not about citizens protecting us from each other. Private gun ownership is about protecting the people from an abusive government.
