FACTS Everyone Should Know About The 2nd Amendment

2nd Amendment

As usual, every time a shooting takes place the liberals want to start passing laws banning any weapon they consider meant to use in battle on the premise us stupid civilians have no use for “weapons of war.”

The truth is the very premise behind the 2nd Amendment is, in fact, the people having weapons of war to ensure a balance of power to deter our government from losing sight of who they represent and work for and to ensure national security in the direst circumstances.

This is not my opinion, this is supported by the following comments made by our founders and early leaders of the Republic. Supporters of the 2nd Amendment should be armed with this knowledge and keep it in their toolbox for use when debating the anti-gun crowd and those that think the 2nd Amendment is all about preserving our right to hunt rather than maintaining a free Republic.

Make sure to watch the video below, there is a very powerful testimony.

The 2nd 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.”

~United States Constitution, Amendment II Bill of Rights.

1846 Georgia Court Decision

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right.”

~Georgia Court Decision Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)

Thomas Jefferson – Principle Author of The Declaration of Independence (1743 to 1826)

  • “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in Government.”

~Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

  • “No freeman shall be debarred the use of arms (within his own lands or tenements).”

~Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826) Draft Virginia Constitution 1776.

1859 Texas Court Decision

“The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the “high powers” delegated directly to the citizen, and ‘is excepted out of the general powers of government.’ A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power.”

~Texas Court Decision Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

  • “We, the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts – not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.”

~Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

  • “Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.”

~Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

“By calling attention to ‘a well-regulated militia,’ ‘the security of the nation,’ and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy… The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason, I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”

~John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) 1959 letter to E.B. Mann quoted: Gun Digest 1974

1878 Arkansas Court Decision

“To prohibit a citizen from wearing or carrying a war arm… is an unwarranted restriction upon the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. If cowardly and dishonorable men sometimes shoot unarmed men with army pistols or guns, the evil must be prevented by the penitentiary and gallows, and not by a general deprivation of constitutional privilege.”

~Arkansas Court Decision Wilson v. State, 33 Ark. 557, at 560, 34 Am. – 1878

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) Founding Father

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

~Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790)

Tench Coxe (1755-1824) – Delegate for Pennsylvania to the Continental Congress (1788–1789)

“The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American … the unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”

~Tench Coxe (1755-1824) Pennsylvania Gazette, February 20, 1788

Samuel Adams (1722-1803) Founding Father

“And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms…”

~Samuel Adams Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20, 1789

William Rawle (1759-1836) United States District Attorney in Pennsylvania

“No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people.”

~William Rawle (1759-1836) Rawle, A View of the Constitution, p. 125-6, 1829

Patrick Henry (1736-1799) Founding Father

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”

~Patrick Henry (1736-1799)

George Mason (1725-1792) Deemed The Father of The United States Bill Of Rights

“To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them.”

~George Mason (1725-1792) 3 Elliot, Debates at 380

John Locke (1632-1704) Known as the Father of Liberalism

“Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience.”

~John Locke (1632-1704)

KOZINSKI, Circuit Judge (2003) United States Court of Appeals

My excellent colleagues have forgotten these bitter lessons of history. The prospect of tyranny may not grab the headlines the way vivid stories of gun crime routinely do. But few saw the Third Reich coming until it was too late. The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed — where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.

Fortunately, the Framers were wise enough to entrench the right of the people to keep and bear arms within our constitutional structure. The purpose and importance of that right was still fresh in their minds, and they spelled it out clearly so it would not be forgotten. Despite the panel’s mighty struggle to erase these words, they remain, and the people themselves can read what they say plainly enough:

“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.”

The sheer ponderousness of the panel’s opinion — the mountain of verbiage it must deploy to explain away these fourteen short words of constitutional text — refutes its thesis far more convincingly than anything I might say. The panel’s labored effort to smother the Second Amendment by sheer body weight has all the grace of a sumo wrestler trying to kill a rattlesnake by sitting on it — and is just as likely to succeed.

Any officer can get by on his sergeants. To be a sergeant you have to know your stuff. I’d rather be an outstanding sergeant than just another officer.
