Gun Control

The Second Amendment: “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." (emphasis added) 
    If “infringed” means “broken,” the “infringer” would mean the “one who violates” or “a violator.”  In other words, this amendment has been violated.  It has been under attack to a much greater degree since the time George W. Bush took office.
    After seeing Dr. Kent Hovind’s presentation on the gun control issues in this nation, I have a totally different outlook on what now needs to be left alone—the Second Amendment.  It is unconstitutional to change that which was established for the freedom of the American people.  I think you’ll agree from this perspective.  This has been tainted from the propaganda pushed through the media.
George Mason, who has been called the “Father of the Bill of Rights,” said in a speech on June 14th, 1788, “To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
James Burgh, an English politician once said:

No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people.  The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave.  He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms.  But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion.   

The purpose of this Amendment is not so we can go duck hunting.  It is so we can protect ourselves and our families from criminals and from our own government if need be! 
    Unlike other mammals, humans are not born with physical defenses.  Many animals that eat grass, for example, have big horns.  They don’t want to hurt anyone, they just want to eat the grass and be left alone.  What if the lions had gotten together and held a conference to outlaw horns on animals?  In their minds, it was dangerous to allow these untrained animals to have such dangerous weapons and they cited several examples where animals had been accidentally harmed by horns.  But what they neglected to consider, is that God gave horns to these animals to protect themselves.
    The liberal media always seems to miss the point.  When kids were killed at the Columbine school shooting outside Denver, newspapers all over the country jumped on the gun control issue.  Blaming guns for Columbine is like blaming spoons for Rosie O’Donnell being fat!
    “Gun registration is not enough,” said Attorney General Janet Reno on December 10th, 1993 (Associated Press).  She also said, “Waiting periods are only a step.  Registration is only a step.  The prohibition of private firearms is the goal.”

Former Ohio Senator, Howard Metzenbaum stated, “What good does it do to ban some guns?  All guns should be banned.”

“Our task of creating a totally Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist have been totally disarmed.”

    President Bill Clinton said, “And we should then—every community in the country—could then start doing major weapon sweeps and then destroying the weapons, not selling them.”

If You Agree...
In 1996, the Australian government forced the country’s gun owners to surrender 640,381 personal firearms, which were subsequently destroyed (costing the government more than $500 million).  In the first 12 months:
♠    Homicides increased 3.2 percent
♠    Assaults increased  8.6 percent
♠    Armed robberies increased 44 percent
♠    In the state of Victoria, homicides with firearms increased 300 percent

“In 1911, Turkey established gun control.  From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.”

    “In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.  From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.”

    “Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.”
    “China established gun control in 1935.  From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.”

    “Guatemala established gun control in 1964.  From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.”

    “Uganda established gun control in 1970.  From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.”

    “Cambodia established gun control in 1956.  From 1975 to 1977, one million ‘educated’ people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.”

    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, ask them, “Who do YOU want to round up and exterminate?”  With guns, we are citizens.  Without them, we are subjects.

In 1982, the town of Kennesaw, Georgia passed a law requiring all able adults (except convicts or CO’s) to have a gun.  They have had only one murder (from an out of state criminal with a gun) and have had no increase in crime or violence in 12 years.

What the Media Hasn’t Mentioned

    According to Federal Statute Title 10, Chapter 13, Section 311 (a) all males between the ages of 17 and 45 who are either citizens of the United States or have declared their intent to become citizens are members of the “unorganized” or reserve militia. 
    A militia consists of ordinary citizens who keep their own arms.  The state of Vermont has a genuine right to carry law (i.e. no permits required) and boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the nation. 
    Since 1995, over 42,405 concealed carry permits (permits are unnecessary because we already have the right to bear arms) have been issued to Utah residents.  None has been revoked for any sort of firearms violence related reason. 
The RIGHT of the People to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, SHALL NOT BE VIOLATED, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath of affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized (emphasis added).
— Second Amendment, U.S. Constitution

    The RIGHTS guaranteed by this Amendment have been violated to the max.  The American people are supposed to be innocent before they are proven guilty, but now you get to go through airport security as a suspected terrorist and be subject to frisking (searched as a criminal). Not to mention that your baggage is being opened and searched inside and out. 
    In a majority of the screenings, you are pulled off to the side, take off a portion of your clothing, and a wand is waved over you.  I watched a woman with a smile on her face as she was being felt up and down around her breast area.  I also watched an old man who could not walk being forced out of his wheelchair and then made to stand up. 
    Sounds all too familiar?  When going through Israel’s Holocaust Memorial, Yad Vashem, as well as the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C., I noticed that what is taking place in the United States is exactly, line for line, what Hitler did before his takeover of the Jews (random police searches and seizures without reasonable cause).  All in the name of their supposed freedom fight. 
It is also interesting to note that Hitler attacked his own country, destroying the Reichstag building to start World War II, which overthrew the established German government.  It is also interesting to note that the German government has compared George W. Bush to Hitler. 
    Do your homework.  Do an Internet search for “Project Paperclip” and see how German war criminals were brought over to the United States to do human experiments.  After the Reichstag burning, Hitler passed a billed called the Enabling Act which gave him complete authority to make all decisions, just like Bush’s Patriot Act following 9/11.    
       Someone once said, “Those that do not know their rights, do not have any rights.”  Know your constitutional rights.  If you do not want to listen to God’s Ten Commandments, then you will listen to man’s 10,000!

Education or Agenda Advancement?
    If you were to truly explore current events as well as public opinion, you would find that an overwhelming number of American citizens stand opposed to such issues as abortion, gay rights, gun control, and evolution being taught as scientific fact in public schools and museums all over the country. 
    Why does the fact that men like Hitler used the philosophy of evolution to justify their genocidal atrocities raise no eyebrows?  Why do six pro-choice demonstrators marching up and down a stretch of sidewalk for 30 minutes merit national news coverage, but a group of 100,000 pro-life protesters lined up in Washington, D.C. can scarcely gain the attention of the national media?
    Why does the media seem so intent on convincing the American people that guns are bad, and that in order to be safe we need to disarm our civilians—despite the widespread success of concealed carry legislation in several states over the past few years?  Why would we disarm the American people if we are in the middle of a terrorist threat?  Is disarming potential terrorist targets an intelligent plan?  It just doesn’t make any sense.  Don’t we realize that people like drug dealers and gang members don’t apply for permits, and don’t buy their guns from licensed dealers?  They buy them from other criminals and their weapons don’t have serial numbers. 
    Gun control legislation will never affect criminals because criminals will always have guns.  The only people that such legislation will successfully disarm are law-abiding citizens who would never dream of using their guns to commit crimes—they would only use them to protect their own lives and the lives of their families.  Will you join the fight or stay on the bench?
