In the gun control community there is a popular statement that has been repeated for decades – “Nobody needs a 30 round magazine for hunting.” Another statement is – “Nobody hunts with an AR-15.” Then the classic – “Nobody needs an AR-15 to defend their family.”
What people do not understand, the Second Amendment is not about hunting, and is only slightly about protecting ones home and family.
The true nature of the Second Amendment is for the people of the United States to be armed to protect themselves from their government, and from invaders.
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.
Who was the militia? Every able-bodied male.
Even though congress passed laws changing the militia from armed volunteers to the national guard, the intent of the Second Amendment remains.
The founding fathers wanted to the people to be armed in order to resist a tyrannous government. This as a last ditch effort so the people may protect themselves.
What happens when people are disarmed? Ask the 100 million people Communism killed in the 20th century alone.
30 Round Magazine
Nobody needs a 30 round magazine. Does the government have 30 round magazines? If the answer is yes, then the people need 30 round magazines.
The people should have adequate arms and ammunition to protect themselves from the government. This does not mean protecting themselves using single shot or bolt action firearms.
Not just the government, but people should be armed in such a manner to restore order when called upon by the local sheriff. The 1992 L.A. riots in one example.
After Hurricane Katrina the local government attempted to disarm the people. This left law abiding citizens defenseless in the face of a lawless community.
If New Orleans had followed the intentions of the founding fathers, the citizen militia would have been called up to restore order. This means every able-bodied male over the age of 18 who owned a firearm. If the sheriff had made a plea to armed law abiding citizens, order would of been restored to New Orleans.
Rather than calling up armed law abiding citizens to help restore order, law enforcement was overwhelmed and lawlessness ensued.
- Trump is the next Hitler.
- Only the government should have guns.
The above translates to, “Only Fascist Should Have Guns.” Seems ok, right? What could possibly go wrong after handing over your guns to a Fascist government?
People can not have both. If liberals truly felt President Trump was the next Hitler, they should be demanding gun laws be loosened.
When the next round of gas chambers happens, how will those gun grabbing liberals protect themselves?
We have to ask, why do people give their rights away? Not only give their rights away, but they demand the government take their rights away.
People are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights. These include – life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
History teaches us all forms of government eventually become corrupt. Some people may say the United Stats will never become corrupt. Then explain how our congress has been bought and paid for by Wall Street. Why did we send out manufacturing base that made this nation great to China? Why did we give away our wealth, and where did the working middle class go?
The right to keep and bear arms is a basic human right which all free people enjoy.
When the government talks about gun control, the people should be concerned. Communist talked about gun control, and over 100 million people died after gun control was enacted.
With so many young people favoring communism, we have numerous reasons to be concerned about the future of this nation.
The first step in people losing their rights is Socialism, which people willingly turn to.
The next step is Communism, which the government will force upon the disarmed populace.
