Normally, I don't like to write about the trending arguments that are going through the news sites and websites and other blogs because I worry that people get tired of  having the same crap being jammed down our throats.  I try to keep my posts a little different to avoid the monotony of hearing about the same shit all the time.  Until today.

I am a HUGE lover of the constitution.  It is a document that lays out in plain English what the rights of the citizens are and the rules that government cannot break (but they break them anyway).  People love to argue that this is an old, archaic document; even barbaric <eyeroll> but it's not.  This is the supreme law of the land.  It's what separates this country from all of the others and why so many people flee their homes in search of a better, freer life.  This document that specifically tells the government what it's not allowed to do and that The People are the ones in charge.  The 2nd amendment is not only the right to bear arms, it is also a right to overthrow a government that has become tyrannical and dangerous.  The authors of this beautiful document have said this over and over.  Here are some quotes from some of the most famous of the creators of this Bill.  You read them and you tell me what you think it means and then tell me what you think THEY meant.

"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
George Mason
Co-author of the Second Amendment
during Virginia's Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788 

"No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. 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, 1 Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334
"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
quoted in the Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20, 1789, "Propositions submitted to the Convention of this State"
"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, occurences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
George Washington
First President of the United States
"The great object is that every man be armed." and "Everyone who is able may have a gun."
Patrick Henry
American Patriot
"Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"
Patrick Henry
American Patriot
"The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; … "
Thomas Jefferson
letter to Justice John Cartwright, June 5, 1824. ME 16:45.  

"The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the Constitution."
Thomas Jefferson
Third President of the United States 
  "What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms."
Thomas Jefferson
to James Madison

Now.....are there ANY questions about what the 2nd amendment is for?  It's not for hunting, it's not for recreation, it's for protection of thieves and from government.  Yes, one in the same, I do realize the irony, LOL!  But THAT is what our gun rights are for.  Some people may call me inciteful and accuse me of trying to start a new revolution or that I am calling people to arms and run out and shoot the bastards that are destroying this country.  That's not what I'm doing but I wouldn't be against it, either.  I would totally support another revolution to get rid of this government and seat a new one - every last one of them, down to their receptionists.  Sometimes, I pray that it happens but I'm not one to give up on peaceful solutions and would rather see this government be peacefully removed.  So don't get all pissy with me, I'm not afraid to say what we are all thinking (except for the liberal commies who are so blinded by party they can't see or think for themselves) and I'm going to call out everyone that tries to tell me I don't have the right to have weapons.

Here's one more thing to consider while we are talking about tyrannical governments.  I would like to point out that a good and just government would never have spent us almost 20 trillion dollars in debt, made plans to increase that debt, dismantle our military, share secrets with sworn enemies, violated Article 1, Section 8, voted to strip us of our 4th, 5th and 6th amendment rights, 10th amendment rights and most of our 1st amendment rights, begin paving the way to abolish the 2nd amendment rights.  People, they have effectively abolished the Constitution at this point.  There's but one or two more rights from the original 10 they haven't taken yet and one of them is the ultimate piece of control they want - your arms.  They have said it publicly, they have called for people to turn them in, they have offered money in exchange for them.  If you can't see that at this point, you are deaf, blind AND dumb.  Not a good combination!

Piers Morgan seems to think we should get rid of the 2nd amendment and that anyone who supports it is "no friend of mine'.  Here is my message to Piers Morgan and any other non-citizen living here:

Who gives a flying fuck what you think, you old, British rag??!  Although you came to this country on your own accord, to make your money using our free market, capitalist system, you seem to think it's ok to tell us CITIZENS that we should get rid of our constitution?  Our freedom?  Our right to bear arms?  Who the hell do you think you are, you would-be-speaking-german-if-it-weren't-for-us little snob? (one of my favorite lines from Friends,lol).   It just irritates me to no end how you can come here and live in what used to be the Land of the Free and shit all over our constitution - that same constitution that you're using every single night on your show, called the 1st amendment.  This isn't even your country, how dare you come over here and try to tell us how to live?!  Why don't you go back home if it's such a grand and safe place!  Why would you ever have left in the first place?  What is it about America that you liked enough to come here and make a life?  My advice to you, Piers, is you keep your trap shut about what rights we should or shouldn't have!  It's those right that are given to us by God and no one else and if you and your fellow Brits had any balls at all, you would fight for those rights instead of trying to take them away from others.  Like it or not, we have guns and we will keep them and if you don't like it sir, then GTFO!

Here is one more little tidbit I found that I would like to share. A small quote from a little Chinese dude:

Every Communist must grasp the truth, 'Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.'
-- Mao Tse-tung, 1938, inadvertently endorsing the Second Amendment.

These men got it right the first time.  It is up to us to keep it that way.  The alternative is something I don't ever want to think about......
