Less Gov't = More Liberty!

Let's talk!   Talkwithmike2014@yahoo.com

 

Amendment II

"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."

Gun control?  Absolutely NOT.

 

Due Process

ALWAYS! Our constitutional protections are paramount; they trump knee-jerk "action".

NO Mr Trump, we cannot shortcut constitutional protections. ...shall NOT be infringed [Feb 28]

“Grave threats to liberty often come in times of urgency, when constitutional rights seem to extravagant to endure.”
   – Thurgood Marshall, reflecting on Lincoln’s suspension of Habeas Corpus

“It is better, so the Fourth Amendment teaches us, that the guilty sometimes go free than the citizens be subject to easy arrest.”
   - William O Douglas, Supreme Court Justice

Basic Advice

Don't make a decision when you are mad... or emotional. They never turn out very well. We must NOT discard the wisdom of constitutional protection amidst raw emotion; it will NOT work out well.

How about a market approach?

Guns Work

Banks, jewelry stores, and other businesses with valuable products use private, armed security. We all see it and accept it. There is NO outcry against banks or jewelry stores, is there?

Our children are more valuable than gold and diamonds...

Public officials and celebrities also use protection. Why?  Do they worry about adoring fans? Yet, Senator Rangle and California Senators want to deny us, The People, the same protection. Pure hypocrisy!

"Gun Free" Zones Don't Work

If "gun free" zones worked, this webpage would be unnecessary. Since establishing "gun free" zones in 1990 there has been a rash of school shootings. Anti-social deviates bring guns into "gun free" zones and encounter NO or little resistance. A target-rich environment, like shooting fish in a barrel. Why did public officials do this? I'm still shaking my head.

There is a direct correlation between mass shootings and gun-free zones. It is clear, there are public massacres where firearms are prohibited.

 

The Gun

At rest a gun is NOT a threat. It is a mere inanimate object. Much like a knife, a hammer, or baseball bat. But, in the wrong hands (because of the person) it can be a dangerous weapon. In every single shooting a person pulled the trigger - every - single - time.

Do we ban automobiles because of drunk drivers? That's ridiculous, right? Just like cars, guns are a powerful tool that must be used responsibly.

The problem is anti-social reprobates... NOT the gun.

Harden Schools?

This is a better method than making our children easy, unprotected targets. Mr Trump may have the right solution [Feb 22, 2018] to counteract ill-thought "gun free" zones. This becomes a local issue.

Maybe Senator Feinstein and her ilk are to blame. This leading gun control advocate, with her "reasoning" (right).
Does her quote/position make sense to anyone?  I'll bet she has armed guards...

200,000,000 Guns

To gun "control" advocates this would be a harbinger of wanton death and destruction. And yet, it has NOT happened. Almost ALL gun owners are responsible and use guns correctly. 200,000,000 guns and 12,000,000,000,000 rounds of ammunition are NOT a public danger. Why do liberals trust police officers and private security, but NOT neighbors? If you know, please tell me.

What?!? Don't think so.

 

Circa 1789... and still true

Please notice the object from which We The People need protection... and who is talking about confiscation. Amendment II is a safeguard for We The People.

Our Founding Fathers, Federalists and Anti-Federalists, both agree with the Right to bear arms:

George Washington

"When government takes away citizens' right to bear arms it becomes citizens' duty to take away government's right to govern"

"A free people ought not only 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."

Thomas Jefferson

"The strongest reason for the people to retain arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government"

"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when government fears the people, there is liberty"

Thomas Paine

"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were law-abiding deprived of the use of them"

"The duty of a true Patriot is to protect his country from its government"

Ben Franklin... and my favorite quote

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."
