In true teleprompter form, King Barry delivered his royal decree on gun control. It is amazing to me the blind ignorance that so infects Washington DC.  The framers of this nation made THEIR position very clear on gun ownership and the DUTY of a free people to keep and bear arms.  It is very tempting to go through the King’s pronouncement line by line, but for the sake of brevity, I will restrain myself.  I am going to focus only on the Second Amendment, but we must be aware that everything presented in the 23 “executive actions” are completely unconstitutional.  The federal government does not have the power to fund research, the States, their law enforcement or even operate the ATF.  Those are all powers that remain with the States through the 10th Amendment and there has NEVER been a constitutional amendment to change that.

What seems to elude those who are willing to jump on board the gun control train is the very principle and purpose our framers had in mind when drafting the Second Amendment.  Knowing what the drafters said is essential to knowing why the King’s declarations are not only unconstitutional but also anti-liberty.

The fundamental principle behind the Second Amendment is actually pretty simple: it is the duty of the PEOPLE to preserve Liberty and to do so they MUST keep and bear arms.  King Barry said he supports the Second Amendment for hunters and sportsmen and personal protection.  Problem is, Barry, the framers said lots of things about our duty to keep and bear arms and NONE OF THEM had to do with hunting or sport or protections from the mugger.

George Mason: “When the resolution of ENSLAVING America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised to disarm the people that it was the best and most effectual way to ENSLAVE them; but that they SHOULD NOT DO IT OPENLY, but WEAKEN them and let them SINK GRADUALLY…”

Barak Obama: “Require universal background checks for all firearm sales. Reinstate and strengthen the ban on assault weapons.  Limit ammunition magazines to 10 rounds. Ban possession of armor-piercing ammunition by anyone other than the military and law enforcement. Eliminate restrictions that force the ATF to authorize importation of certain firearms because of their age.” Translation: Let’s make them sink gradually.

Noah Webster: “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…A military force at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power; and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”

Barak Obama:  “Like most Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. I respect our strong tradition of gun ownership and the rights of hunters and sportsmen. There are millions of responsible, law-abiding gun owners in America who cherish their right to bear arms for hunting or sport or protection or collection.” Translation: Bearing arms has nothing to do with me…just the deer in the field or the robber entering your home.

Richard Henry Lee (Federal Farmer #18): "Whereas to PRESERVE LIBERTY, it is essential that the WHOLE BODY of the people ALWAYS possess arms…The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder TRUE REPUBLICANS are for carefully guarding against it."

Barak Obama:  "Ban possession of armor-piercing ammunition by anyone other than the military and law enforcement.  Reinstate and strengthen the ban on assault weapons."  Translation: Only the government can keep and bear arms unless I DECLARE otherwise.

In summary, the writers of the Second Amendment intended all the people to always bear arms to:

  1. Keep from becoming slaves to a central government;
  2. To keep the central government from enforcing unjust, unconstitutional, and oppressive laws;
  3. To preserve Liberty and protect our Constitutional republic from men who operate to remove Liberty.

Barak Obama believes the Second Amendment is for:

  1. Hunting, sport, protection,  and collection;
  2. Law enforcement officers;
  3. The military in war (not when they come home);
  4. Federal government agents unless otherwise declared by the federal government.

You CANNOT preserve Liberty by compromising the Second Amendment.  The Second Amendment reads “the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”  That literally means the government is completely forbidden to violate or transgress the peoples’ right to bear arms.  Yet the King wants us to believe that it is a matter of “common sense” to allow the central government to decide who and on what terms the people can bear arms.  Do you see how that is contrary to the very core of the Second Amendment?  The King says he is going to “direct the U.S. attorney general to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun and make recommendations to ensure dangerous people aren't slipping through the cracks.”  I thought we were trying to make sure only criminals didn’t own guns.  Now the government wants a new classification, “dangerous people”.  I’m sure the King and his court will be ready and willing to pronounce the definition of “dangerous”.  Who are the “dangerous” people today?  Who will they be tomorrow?   But then where does the compromise end?  Because when you are completely forbidden to do something and then you get permission to do it just a little bit, you are no longer COMPLETELY forbidden, you are CONDITIONALLY forbidden.  Conditions, as well as definitions, in the eyes of the government, are always mutable. 

If you have heard or read the King’s diktat, he has warned you that the argument of Liberty would be presented; how very Alinsky of him.  His denunciations of the founders’ intent and the principles that make this nation great are merely tactic and have no credibility.  He speaks from lies and emotional propaganda…the founders taught from historical experience and timeless principles.  But I am just the messenger, so you must make your own decisions.  As for me and my family, we stand with G. Mason, N. Webster, R.H. Lee and the men who sacrificed for Liberty.  You may, however, choose to stand with those who only stand on avarice, ambition, and constitutional destruction. I leave you one last testimony from each side, a closing argument if you please:

Barak Obama: "If parents and teachers, police officers, and pastors, if hunters and sportsman, if responsible gun owners, if Americans of every background stand up and say, enough. We’ve suffered too much pain, and care too much about our children to allow this to continue, then change will -- change will come."

Daniel Webster:  "Is the Constitution worth preserving? Guard it as you would the seat of your life; guard it not only against the open blows of violence, but also against that spirit of change.”

Herb, Your comment is straight & to the point.....your point is well taken. Why is this never reported by the lame stream media?!

Comment by Herb Irish on January 19, 2013 at 9:21am

It appears to me we should join in the current hysteria and suggest the evidence shows that all registered Democrats should be confiscated. We know who they are - they're registered!

Why is it the progressive liberals that steal guns, and then go and kill movie goers and children in school, have never been a conservative NRA member? Consider these high-profile mass murderers:

Ft. Hood ~~~ Registered Democrat ~ Muslim

Columbine ~~~ Too young to vote, but both families were registered Democrats and progressive liberals.

Virginia Tech ~~~ Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff; was a Registered Democrat.

Colorado Theater ~~~ Registered Democrat; staff worker on the Obama campaign; Occupy Wall Street participant; progressive liberal.

Connecticut School Shooter ~~~ Registered Democrat; hated Christians.

The common thread is that all of these shooters were progressive, liberal Democrats.

Interesting, isn't it?

UH, Eric Holder should oversee gun ownership!? Can anyone say Fast & Furious, a situation that Holder wants to sweep under the rug?! I am so sad about this so called government, that is letting O & Holder get by w/anything that they want, as is any God fearing, Bible clutching, free American that sees what is going on is. Stand up America....we won't STAND DOWN!!!

There will be a test to see how far they can go with the disarming. Right now 65% of Americans believe the 2nd Amendment is to protect us from a tyrannical government. So they will test the waters to see exactly where they stand. Emails, faxes and phone calls will not have much of an effect. Neither will gathering at you local gun store. This is coming from politicians and out response needs to be directed directly at them (offices/home/vacation spot). It needs to be a coordinated effort and it needs to be big. Just take notice, the NRA is not rallying the troops in this time of trouble. They should be putting together rallies and such instead of wining and dining the crooks in DC.

Anyone see a pattern developing - and quickly - between the NDAA detention provisions and a movement to ultimately disarm Americans? Wonder what's next on the agenda...

Comment by Ben Gedzyk on January 18, 2013 at 5:00pm
Obama wants background checks on us, yet no one has done one on him. Weird huh?
Comment by Ben Gedzyk on January 18, 2013 at 4:49pm
Does anyone out there really think King O cares about the children of this country? That gun control will protect them? Yet he funds Planned Parenthood to commit over 300,000 infant murders a year. There is a documentary on Vimeo.com called "Agenda", that shows how Obama is using the Communist play book step by step to promote his "Change". It started a hundred years ago and he's following Marx's instructions to the letter. It's an eye opener. Film was made by a US Congressman. It's not about guns. It's about CONTROL!!! Wake up America before its too late!

That's what we get for electing and then re-electing a foreign born, communist indoctrinated narcissist.

Very well written and documented blog by the way!

To Joseph Jr.

I was NOT stating MY view, I was posting a message I receved from a liberal looney on facebook. If YOU would have read the post you wouldn't have your head up your a..

Comment by Joseph Jr Vanchieri on January 17, 2013 at 10:24pm

@Jerry Schmidt, ??? where the hell you get this garbage? The Party that didn't want slaves free was the Democrats. When the second amendment was written they had no fear of "losing their slaves". It wasn't the "militia " that went after and enslaved slaves. It was local idiots who thought they were of "higher value" in Gods eyes than slaves. Do you really believe that they wrote an amendment to satisfy one State? Try reading real history. Not the junk they are teaching today but actual history. No NRA member wants more "gun control laws". They want stricter penalties for those who abuse the right. I know this is like talking to a hard boiled egg but gun laws do nothing to stop criminals. That is why they are criminals. They break the law. Anything....??? Didn't think so. I am sure there is a whole lot more falsehoods you want to spread so I'll let you vent your ignorance some more.
