Kids say the darnedest things. The yutes protesting for gun control say the Second Amendment doesn’t apply in “modern” times. They espouse what they’ve obviously been brainwashed into believing. The party line is that the Second Amendment was only written as a means of warding off an invasion from either England or Spain. They seem to have forgotten about the whole tyranny of government aspect. One of their biggest platform issues is eliminating PRIVATE OWNERSHIP of what they deem as “weapons of war“.
The group Thinkprogress has written a piece where they say that there is no correlation between firearms ownership and democracy. Of course they only look at data over the past 10 years.
Let’s review a bit of American history which it appears that the kids of today and those on the left either didn’t learn or just want to ignore.
On October 16, 1859 a small group of armed men attacked and took control of a federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. They were led by a man named John Brown. US Marines recaptured the arsenal two days later and John Brown was later hanged for his crime of TREASON.
What does this have to do with the Second Amendment? John Brown was a “white” abolitionist. He believed that the government was corrupt and that all men regardless of skin color should be free. Sadly for anyone on the left, John Brown’s beliefs came from his strong Christian values, that God created all men as equals. John Brown picked up his PERSONALLY OWNED RIFLE, a “weapon of war”, and led the take over of the federal arsenal in hopes of giving the “weapons of war” to SLAVES allowing them to fight for their FREEDOM. Hmm, slaved didn’t have their own weapons. Anyone seeing something here? Now who commanded the troopers that retook the arsenal? It was then Colonel Robert E. Lee, whose statues the proge-sissies want to tear down. John Brown’s last words, written on a note which he handed to the gallows executioner were, “I, John Brown, am now quite certain that the crimes of this guilty land will never be purged away but with blood.”
This event by a PRIVATE CITIZEN using his PERSONALLY OWNED WEAPON OF WAR was the trigger point that started the US Civil War that ENDED SLAVERY. John Brown was fighting CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY, endorsed by a CORRUPT GOVERNMENT.
Do you think that might be a good enough reason for, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
If John Brown was not allowed to own a “weapon of war” do you think that he would have triggered the end of slavery just sending a “tweet” or posting on facebook? Would those on the left be okay if NO ONE decided to pick up a weapon, rebel against the government of the Southern states, and just let SLAVERY CONTINUE?
