It’s funny to look back in time and determine where people stood on issues 20, 50 or 200 years ago and then compare the modern day stances on the same issues.  Societal changes, shifting demographics and changes in technology and the ramifications of these changes rippling through society as a whole, sometimes leave me surprised and confused.

Let’s talk about the latest battleground forming in our nation today; The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

10d1a_t607
Until just a few short years ago, guns in society were rarely considered.  It was just assumed that most people had guns and knew how to use them.  I grew up with guns in our home.  It was no big deal.  My father taught my brother and me how to properly use a gun, care for it, and ABOVE ALL, respect it.  I personally took a 12 gauge shotgun to school for use in a school play and actually shot it (with the metal shot removed from the shells of course) during the play!  Guess what?  No one was surprised and no one even checked my shells to verify they were empty.  In that era, even adults placed faith in 17 year olds that they were being responsible with weapons.

Until 40 or 50 years ago, guns were a primary means in putting food on tables in a majority of homes in America.  Guns were tools that were used responsibly, for the most part.  Once again, they were no big deal.

Now, it seems, guns ARE a big deal.  Why?  Because some crackpot idiot decided to STEAL guns and massacre 20 children and 8 adults in the most recent act of craziness.  It’s not JUST Newtown, CT.  Its Columbine, Jonesboro, Aurora, etc., as well as Tyrifjorden Buskerud, Norway, Baku, Azerbaijan and Dunblane, Scotland.  If you think crazy is limited to America, then you are nuts as well.

You might think that this is the reason that gun control is all you hear about on the news these days.  Well, it’s not.  I have news for you.  These “crazies” would have killed people with a knife, ball bat or a damn rock if that is what they could get their hand on.  The reason that our Federal Government is so up in arms over guns is simple….control…

I hear people say that we need to ban “military STYLE assault rifles”. Why?  Because they LOOK like an automatic weapon.  Guess what?  They are NOT automatic weapons.  Honestly, you can do as much damage with your Dad’s 30.06 deer rifle as you can with a Bushmaster XM 15 rifle.  It might take you an extra 3-4 seconds to change out the clips since they hold only 5 rounds, but I can carry 20 to 30 full clips with no problem whatsoever.  All this talk about limiting clips to 10 rounds or less is no more than political scare tactics.

It’s about time that our elected officials start talking about the REAL meaning of the 2nd Amendment and quit all the beating around the bush.  They act like stating a fact is treason.  The simple truth is that the 2nd Amendment authorizes We The People to protect ourselves and our country from a tyrannical government…end of story.  It does not mention or even allude to hunting or self-defense from other citizens.  You see, our Founding Fathers were not worried about hunting….that was a daily chore.  They were not worried about self-defense from other citizens…they all had guns and most of them were responsible and trustworthy citizens.  Our Founding Fathers were fighting a war of independence from a TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT!  The BRITISH!  GET IT PEOPLE??????  These men, in their infinite wisdom, saw fit to delineate a physical object (the ONLY physical object listed in our Bill of Rights) as the ONE tangible object REQUIRED to overthrow a tyrannical government!  ARMS……

Now, if you consider the 2nd Amendment in this light, what makes you think that our Founding Fathers would even consider allowing the People to be armed with weapons that do military style weapon cartoonnot even come close to matching the weaponry that the government possesses?  They would not.  That would be like saying, “Well, the British have flintlock rifles, so we need to fight our battles against them with the bow and arrow”!  Now, exactly how much sense does that make?  None whatsoever!  That would be a totally stupid statement to make, and even an idiot should realize it.

Our Federal Government has NO right under the Constitution to limit the people’s access to weapons and has even less of a mandate to know WHO possess these arms!

It is impossible to overthrow a tyrannical government with sub-standard weapons.  It is also foolish of the People to inform the same government as to who owns weapons that could be used in overthrowing it.

Does this now make sense to everyone?

Alas, probably not…  I understand that Progressives will, for some reason, disagree with even the simplest of arguments.  Just as they cannot usually see that lower tax rates generate MORE taxes in the long run, they will refuse to see that our Founders foresaw that, at some point, the People MAY have to resort to putting its own Federal government back in line.

If, for any reason, you don’t believe the obvious, PLEASE consult an expert.  I can tell you who the experts are that can give you first-hand information regarding banning guns and documented gun ownership…

Gun Control 1

Ask a Russian…ask a Chinese…ask a North Korean…maybe a German!

In the grand scheme, it should not be a question of WHAT kind of arms I can own.  The answer should be anything I can afford.

I’m finished now….  I have to get back to work to make the next payment on my Tomahawk Missile.

Chatter Now Decoded.

Excuse Me?

Posted: January 8, 2013 by G. Byron Barrett in Constitution, Second Amendment
Tags: , , ,

Well, as usual, I cannot leave well enough alone…I have read the comments regarding my colleague’s post “The Sad, Unspoken Truth” by Dr. DA (this chick IS a PHD, right?  OPS….well, WTF…let’s call her Dr. anyway and let the “DA” stand for itself) and I am astonished, as usual, at the lack of original thought, lack of research and the plethora of bad grammar in her woefully poor attempt to debate with Ms. Watkins.

Shall we dissect just the last comments by Dr. DA?  Okie-Dokie then……  😉Iroquois

“The biggest fear our founding fathers had was against the native Americans (Indians)”.  Huh?

Now Dr. DA, you cannot truly believe that Indians were a greater worry to our fore-fathers than the English.  Can you???  If we follow this reasoning, we would have declared our independence from the Iroquois Confederacy instead of the English Crown.  I cannot remember seeing ANYWHERE where the Indians levied taxes, quartered soldiers or exercised naval blockades against Colonial America.  But the British DID…

She also states,the idea of this “tyrannical government’ is more modern history, the truth is that Britain governed us with a velvet glove, the majority of our taxes were self Declaration of Independenceinflected”.  (Even though you are wrong Doc, don’t you mean self-inflicted? Hello spell-check!) Evidently Dr. DA has failed to READ the Declaration of Independence.  If she did, you might have noticed the section that starts “The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world” and THEN lists not one, but TWENTY-SEVEN SPECIFIC instances (FACTS) of tyranny.

Also, I guess the definition of “velvet glove” would be, in Dr. DA’s opinion, a British occupying force exceeding 75,000 troops including a MINIMUM of 30,000 hired mercenaries.  Nothing says Velvet like a paid German contract killer!  Add to this, 160,000+ British Naval troops pirating American vessels and blockading Colonial ports and I would be forced to disagree with Dr. DA that the British were a kindly bunch of blokes with America’s best interest at heart.

And Doctor…regarding your asinine statement that “the majority of our taxes were self inflected”; if you were familiar with British governance (or cared to research), you would know that Parliament authorized the levying of taxation for any of the colonies of the Crown.

Now, let’s get to the meat of this discussion…the 2nd Amendment. 2ndAmendment

Dr. DA states, ” But the biggest disconnect you have is that our founding fathers ever envisioned the weapons 200+ years in the future. For you or anyone to propose that they ever thought the AK47 would exist and that each citizen should have the right to own one is the real shame, my point back day one was that WAS not the intent of the 2nd Amendment”.  Hogwash!

For once and for all, let me explain to everyone the real intention of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution…  When government becomes tyrannical, WE THE PEOPLE have the RIGHT to use our WEAPONS to abolish the government and start a new one.  I’ll go you one better even…We The People have the RESPONSIBILITY and the CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY to do this!!!!!

I have no idea where people came up with the notion that the 2nd Amendment has ANYTHING to do with hunting or self-protection from other citizens.  The 2nd Amendment has nothing whatsoever to do with these things.  It ONLY addresses the ability of the governed to fight the government for their rights.

Now Doc, you say that the Founders never envisioned AK47’s…and that may well be true.  However, we had some pretty sharp cookies founding our beloved country.  Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington ALL had damn good imaginations…hell, they IMAGINED a free country called the United States of America didn’t they?  Now, they may not have dreamed of a weapon that could fire 30 shots per second, but I can damn well tell you that they would have one in their gun safe!  What I am saying is that while they may not have imagined the devastating weapons we have created in the last 200+ years, they would DEMAND that We The People had access to the same weapons used by the military.  Think about it for a second without a conservative OR liberal bias…without the same weapons as the military, what chance would We The People have against a government gone awry?  NONE AT ALL!  The Founding Fathers provided We The People with the RIGHT to be as well armed as the military with the 2nd Amendment!

knife_in_handAs a close to her uneducated comments, Dr. DA then wants to get a personal jab against Ms. Watkins.  She states, “As for your suggestion that the professors with PhD’s (which since you declined to answer, can only make me assume you don’t have) are rewriting history to accommodate ones agenda liberal or otherwise … only tells me that perhaps you might be accusing them based on your own agenda. See educators become such to educate, not become well known, I wonder if you can say you have such a pure heart”?  REALLY?

I, in my many years of education, have seen a multitude of professors.  While all of them had PhD’s, not all of them have the sense to open an umbrella when it rains.  Regardless of what you may think, ALL educators do NOT become such to educate.  Some, and probably most, wish to promote their own agenda and opinion as opposed to stating facts to their charges.  Open any high school or college textbook and see how long it takes you to find a mistake or an outright lie.  It will not take long.  I have read many of these and have confronted your so-called “professors” with the facts before.  Some will argue and some will admit the problem, depending, of course, on the veracity of their character and ethics.  History is re-written every day and it is the duty of everyone to call it out and educate our children and young adults with actual facts…. not liberal OR conservative fiction!

I have not seen where Ms. Watkins stated that she was a PhD.  Why should that matter?  Is research LIMITED to the hallowed PhD?  God, I hope not….  because most of them are your standard, garden variety idiots, spouting opinion as fact and taking umbrage to being called out to face the facts and being found wanting.  I’ll take Ms. Watkins research over that of Larry, Curly and Moe (Your 3 professors) any day of the week.

Ms. Watkins’s column has hundreds of comments and thousands of daily readers, so evidently she is doing something right.  I surmise that this something would be honesty, integrity, diligence and patriotism.  What do you have?

Obama_behind_the_curtain

UPDATE FROM SENATOR RAND PAUL  –

Bureaucrats at the UN are busy working on a UN Gun Ban at the Programme Against Small Arms conference in New York City.

Speaking for the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton has already given her blessing to this global gun grab, calling for “consensus” in order to “avoid loop-holes.” My suspicion is that “loop-holes” for Mrs. Clinton include our Second Amendment.

Right now, gun grabbers from around the world are in New York City for another week of negotiations. They’re working to “build consensus,” and when they’re sure their UN Gun Ban includes the demands of petty tyrants worldwide, I fear that Clinton and Obama will do everything in their power to force it through sometime before the upcoming election.

This UN Gun Ban would almost certainly FORCE the United States to participate in an international gun registry and could require the confiscation and destruction of ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms in America.

Read details about this critical situation from the NAGR site.

When I think about the men that founded this great experiment called The United States of America, lofty words always come to mind.  Words like visionary, titan, ingenious, dreamer…   While all of these words are certainly appropriate adjectives to characterize our Founding Fathers, it dawned on me that there are other more mundane descriptions that are just as important, possibly more important.  I believe words like hard, determined, committed and dedicated better describe the condition of these extraordinary men and their ideals.

First Continental Congress portrayed

Let’s look back 250 years and consider how these more common, simple words fit into the narrative of our Founding Fathers; how do these common words affect their legacies and the way that we should remember them.

250 years ago, there was no air travel.  There were no limousine services.  No paved roads, no roadside motels, no rest stops.  Think about it.  Men and women in that era lived hard lives, even in the best of circumstances.

In an era of primitive transportation, no plumbing, no running water, no electricity, no concrete, no telephones, no internet, the people of this era built an infrastructure that allowed for the interaction of the colonies, commerce, education, and the arts to take root and flourish.

To me, that defines the word Hard.

In our era, our elected officials jump on a plane (at our expense) and fly to Washington and back, sometimes on a weekly basis.  Would these same men and women undertake this journey 250 years ago?  I think not.  The distance between Charleston, SC and Philadelphia, PA at that time was about 750 miles.  When riding hard, a man could cover 20-30 miles a day, assuming the trails upon which they rode were in decent shape.  To travel these 750 miles would take a man 25 days to make the trip.  You really have to want to go somewhere when you sleep nightly by an open fire, care for your horse and feed yourself for almost a month in the heat, the cold, the wind, rain and snow.

Headed to Philadelphia for Continental Congress (depicted by a reenactor)

Can you imagine your senator or congressman traveling 25 days in those conditions just for the opportunity to represent YOU?  Not mine, no way, no how.

This is the very definition of Dedication.

These people hitched up their horses or mules when they needed to travel on muddy trails that served as roads and traveled for hours to go what takes us minutes in our society.  To our forefathers, adversity was just a typical day.

These men, between planting and harvesting crops by hand; between driving wagons to and from distant markets; between conducting their business even between the shores of the Atlantic, found the time to think about a better way to govern.  They found the time to find each other and outline a destiny for themselves and their children.  They found the time to come together and forge a Constitution and Bill of Rights into existence.  They found the time to rebel and they found the time to win our independence.

That is Commitment.

Merriam Webster defines Dedication as: “an act or rite of dedicating to a divine being or to a sacred use”.

What true American can dispute that The United States of America is anything but sacred and was created for any other purpose than to provide freedom and independence to its people for the betterment of themselves and their posterity?  I suppose, it is possible that some men and women who helped to found our country did not initially have such a grandiose goal in mind.  However, it is crystal clear that over the course of our nation’s genesis this principal of sacred freedom was foremost in their minds.  All you have to do is read the documents they penned, study their faith and perseverance through their hard-fought battles, and appreciate their sacrifices as they buried their sons, husbands, fathers who died in order to attain their dream of a land where men could live according to their own beliefs and hard work to see success, rather than be born into a position of favor.

Ask yourself these questions: 

  • Do I not deserve men such as our forefathers to represent me?
  • Do I not work hard for what I have?
  • Do I not deserve the fruits of my labor?
  • Do I not rate the same level of respect that our forefathers bestowed to every American 250 years ago?

To this I say YES, YES and YES!

We have an upcoming election that is primarily focused on the Presidential race, but it is more than just an election for President.  It is also an election for U.S. Congress and Senate positions, as well as state and local representation.

The election of good, trustworthy men and women that are hard, determined, committed and dedicated is completely up to you as a voting citizen of The United States of America.

  • You must educate yourself on the scope and limits of government that our forefathers established based on extensive study of world history and governance.  Our Founding Fathers risked their lives and fortunes by signing their names to the Declaration of Independence, then our Constitution and Bill of Rights.
  • You must know and understand meaning of our Declaration of Independence and the reasons why America exists in the first place.
  • You have to educate yourself on the issues affecting our country.
  • But more importantly, you must educate yourself in regard to the people running for these positions.  You must know their character and qualifications and their reasons for wishing to represent you.

Only people with YOUR best interests at heart, the desire to serve and then leave, and the character to do what is right rather than what is popular or tows the party line, deserve your consideration for these jobs.  Our Federal Government was instituted to work for US, the people…NOT the other way around.

If the current politicos that make up our governing bodies do not believe these three basic tenets, they are NOT the people that deserve to represent YOU.

Keep this in mind as you check the box, pull the lever or press the button.  It starts with you and ends with you.  Make the right decision for you, your family and your country.   Take time to Decode the Political Chatter…

The following is a letter from U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky).  Senator Paul has been working with the National Association for Gun Rights to stop the Obama Administration and the Progressive/Liberal Left from slowly diminishing our Constitutional rights, specifically the Second Amendment which guarantees United States citizens the RIGHT TO OWN AND BEAR ARMS.

Please join me and the 1,400,000 Americans who have already signed the petition against this UN treaty.  The petition will be sent to your Senators to let them know that WE, the American People, will not be governed by the United Nations.

(Note:  All treaties between the United States and another entity must be ratified by the United States Senate.  Currently, the U.S. Senate is controlled by the liberal Democrats with 51 seats;  the Republicans hold 47 seats and there are 2 Independent members, totaling 100 members.)

Dear April,

Have you signed your Firearms Sovereignty Survey yet?

The National Association for Gun Rights has collected over 1,400,000 signed surveys against the UN Small Arms Treaty with tens of thousands of more pouring in each week!

If you haven’t yet signed, please go ahead and do so by clicking here.  It’s still vital that your Senators feel pressure to oppose the UN Small Arms Treaty from grassroots gun rights activists like you.

But if you’ve already signed, will you forward the email below to every pro-gun American you know?

By forwarding this email to your family and friends, you will be letting them know that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton still have their sights set on advancing, and passing, the UN Small Arms Treaty.

Click here to forward the email below right now.

On the page I link to there is a space for a personal message.  Please make sure to add a short note so your friends know what the email is about.

This is an important step in growing the grassroots gun rights army opposed to the UN Small Arms Treaty.

I hope I can count on your action today.

Click here to forward the Firearms Sovereignty Survey to your family and friends.

Please read my email below to find out just how dangerous the UN Small Arms Treaty is to our gun rights why it’s still a threat.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

From: Rand Paul [rand.paul@nationalgunrights.org]
Sent: Monday, 9:35 AM
Subject: Hillary Commits to UN Small Arms Treaty

April,

Gun-grabbers around the globe believe they have it made.  You see, the UN Small Arms Treaty is proving harder to kill than Freddy Krueger.

I’ve just learned that the next opportunity for the UN to push global gun control is August 27th.

Officially, it’s called the “United Nations Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects.”  And I hear the gun grabbers will jump on it “like a snarling pack of hyenas.”

Disguised as an “International Arms Control Treaty” to fight against “terrorism,” “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates,” the UN Small Arms Treaty is in fact a massive, GLOBAL gun control scheme.

I’m helping lead the fight to defeat this radical treaty in the United States Senate and I want your help.  Please join me by taking a public stand against this outright assault on our national sovereignty by signing the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

Ultimately, the UN Small Arms Treaty is designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept the exact wording of their new scheme under wraps.  But looking at previous versions of the UN Small Arms Treaty, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works.

If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN Small Arms Treaty would almost certainly FORCE the U.S. to:

  • Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;
  • CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);
  • BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
  • Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.  Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

To the petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the UN, the United States of America isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand designs for the globe.  These anti-gun globalists know that so long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave.

And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.  That’s why I was so glad to hear that the National Association for Gun Rights is leading the fight to stop this assault on our Constitution!

The truth is there’s no time to waste.  You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.

The fact is the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical legislation.  They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the UN Small Arms Treaty into law since the mid-1990s.

But now time may not be on our side.  In fact, we’re likely to only have a few weeks to defeat the treaty when they make their move.  And we definitely don’t have a President in the White House who will oppose this treaty.

So our ONE AND ONLY CHANCE to stop the UN Small Arms Treaty is during the ratification process in the U.S. Senate.  As you know, it takes 67 Senate votes to ratify a treaty.

With new pro-gun champions joining me in the Senate, rounding up enough votes to kill this thing should be easy, right?  Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth.  Even with the Republican tidal wave in 2010, there still isn’t a pro-gun majority in the Senate to kill ratification of the treaty.  You know just as well as I do how few Senators are truly “pro-gun.”

Not only that, but many Senators get “queasy” about killing treaties for fear of “embarrassing” the President — especially with “international prestige” at stake.  They look at ratifying treaties much like approving the President’s Supreme Court nominees.

Remember how many Senators turned their back on us and voted to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor?  A dozen more only voted against Sotomayor after receiving massive grassroots pressure from the folks back home.

So if we’re going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty gun owners have to turn the heat up on the U.S. Senate now before it’s too late!

  • Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?
  • Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST the UN Small Arms Treaty.

And along with your signed survey, I hope you’ll send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 to help finance this battle.  With your generous contribution, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue contacting Second Amendment supporters to turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators.

Not only that, but they’re preparing a massive program to launch the second this treaty is brought before the Senate.  Direct mail.  Phones.  E-mail.  Blogs.  Guest editorials.  Press conferences.  Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits.  The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.  But that’s not easy, and we may not have much time.

In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!  So please put yourself on record AGAINST the UN Small Arms Treaty by signing NAGR’s Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.  And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

My life has been consumed with personal matters and I have not spent time to write my thoughts on the many events that have happened and those that are happening now. 

Rather than reiterate what has already been said, I will refer you, my readers, to watch the last two weeks of Glenn Beck’s show.  The research, analysis and projections provided by Glenn, his team and his expert guests is unparalleled. 

Beck has discovered the keystone to what our world is experiencing and it is frightening. 

I realize that some of you may consider Mr. Beck a “nut job, kook, etc.” because he warns us of danger – danger that a lot of you refuse to see.  But, I have met this man.  He is humble and honest; he is a seeker of truth.  As he says, “don’t take [his] word…research it for yourself!”  I have and he has been spot on with his analysis. 

It angers me that politics, journalistic celebrity, and TV ratings seem to get in the way of truth, thus the whole picture of news.  It also angers me that America has produced at least 3 generations of mindless idiots that will take the word of any talking head on TV without concern for credibility, or believe any headline that comes from the hippest publications without reading the details.

Glenn Beck is one of a few that know the score and is trying to tell the American people.  Another is Michael Savage; and Brigitte Gabriel.  I urge you to take time to hear, really hear, their messages. 

If we are, indeed, in the beginning of massive change and world war, you owe it to your family, your children and yourself to stop “listening” to the nicely presented propaganda cloaked in touching ads and peppy network anchors.  Instead, begin “hearing” the evidence the truth and truly consider its possibility.  Read and educate yourself on the history of our country, our world, our enemies, our allies.  Seek out the hidden truths that are not found in school texts.  Below are several places to begin your journey.
