What Part of “Shall Not Be Infringed” Is Confusing?

“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 Second Amendment

Who needs an AR-15 with a high-capacity magazine to hunt?”
Guns are dangerous weapons designed to kill people and they should be banned.”
Only Police and Military should be allowed access to semi-automatic weapons.”
Semi-automatic weapons are assault weapons…who needs an assault weapon to shoot deer?”

The above smattering of paraphrased quotes is a compilation of ignorant nonsense that has recently been spewed from the Mainstream like vomit from a possessed little girl. The one thing that stands out the most is that none of the “experts” on “Gun Control” have a clue as to what the Second Amendment is all about. The Politicians spouting this ignorance DO know what they are doing…but continue to do so anyway, proving to We The People just what traitorous scum they truly are.

Our Founding Fathers clearly understood the importance of firearm ownership. The Men who created the Constitution and sacrificed life, limb, property, and family to secure the Freedoms contained therein, truly understood the absolute Need for the citizenry to be armed. In fact, our earliest presidents were unabashed supporters of private firearm ownership, to the point that they felt it mandatory for every Free Man to own a firearm.

In order to understand the True Nature of the Second Amendment, one must first read the Preamble to the Bill of Rights as this places the first Ten Amendments of the Constitution into the context that the Founders originally intended. It is the back story and the reason for the establishment of Ten immutable and Federally protected Rights that can never be removed.

The Preamble to the Bill of Rights

“THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.

The above statement places each amendment of the Bill of Rights in context of the spirit in which the amendments were made. It essentially states that, due to fear of a Centralized government, States demand that the following ten amendments be enshrined in the constitution as a way to ensure that they will always be protected and sacrosanct. Read it again if you disagree, but the whole point of the preamble is to make sure that anyone who reads the Constitution will understand the depth and importance of each Amendment in regards to the Limited power of the Central Government for the States and to We The People.

 “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 Second Amendment

The Constitution does not allow the Federal Government to maintain a Standing Army, a Navy…Yes, an Army…No, and for good reason. The idea being that a Standing Army has only one purpose, which is occupation. The military force of the Republic was intended to come directly from the citizenry, the ARMED Citizenry. Thus, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State…” literally means that We The People ARE the Army of the Republic. A Government with a Standing Army could turn that army against its own people if the Government became a morally bankrupt Tyrant. This constitutional limitation also means that Imperialism would be hindered, as the Federal Government would not be able to conquer and dominate other peoples militarily. Therefore, without a standing army the citizens are the ones responsible for securing their own freedoms and protecting their homes and homeland.

What Genius!!!

The Second Amendment has another built-in function which is to secure the people against Tyranny from their own government. In order to truly terrorize and dominate a people they must be unarmed and thus unable to defend themselves. This is where the attitude of “Only Police and Military should be allowed access to semi-automatic weapons.” makes me want to deficate razor blades in response to the absolute thick-headedness of the attitude’s owner. Why? The whole concept of the Second Amendment is that We The People will ALWAYS be Armed against ANY and EVERY form of Tyranny.

How can I make a statement like that? Because of the second part, “…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Notice that NONE of the other Amendments has this peculier rider…SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. Shall Not Be Infringed means CAN NEVER BE VIOLATED, it means, CAN NEVER BE LEGISLATED AGAINST, it means CAN NEVER BE REMOVED.

“Shall not be Infringed” means that ANY Politician who tries to take away the guns of American Citizens is a Traitor, and Traitors get…(surprise, surprise) SHOT.

Read some quotes from the Men who WROTE the Second Amendment as to its purpose and priority:

A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.
George Washington

The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
-Thomas Jefferson

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.
George Washington

The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.
-Samuel Adams

So…the next time you hear a Smug Self-Righteous Git declare that “Semi-Automatic Weapons are dangerous and should be banned.”…give ‘em Both Barrels! Just remember that Truth is as unknown to the Tyrant as Snow is unknown in the Sahara.

Stand Up, Speak Out, and Talk Hard!
