The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is a God-given Unalienable Right and will be Defended!!
vanity | April 16, 2013 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 04/16/2013 4:09:55 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

The threat of gun confiscation by the government was the spark that ignited the American Revolution (look up the Battles of Lexington and Concord). Americans have cherished their God-given right to keep and bear arms long before the constitution or the second amendment was even ratified to guarantee it.

Our unalienable God-given rights are enshrined in the Declaration of Independence and guaranteed by our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Millions of patriots have fought and many died defending same. Our God-given rights are paid for by the sacrifice of the blood of patriots, warrior and civilian alike. And the debt can never be paid in full.

Millions of us are armed and have sworn an oath to defend our constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

The traitors among us, especially those who represent us in the government had best examine their positions in regards to God, country and constitution.

Give up our right to keep and bear arms? Not on my watch!!

Prayers up for the Bostonians who again have shed first blood.

Prayers up for our free nation.

Praying we can get many patriot and conservative groups together to march on Washington in defense of our God-given rights.

Sadly, in much of America our 2A rights have become priviliges doled out at the discretion of the ruling class. Even more sad is the fact that we elected these people.

Our 2A rights can’t survive dem majorities. Never ever vote for a dim or a RINO.

And now it's a threat again.

I say we'll not lie down. We'll not comply.

We'll not hand off the true power of our people.

Nope.

Come and take 'em.

And count up that cost, bitches.

“The Battles of Lexington and Concord, fought on April 19, 1775, kicked off the American Revolutionary War (1775-83). Tensions had been building for many years between residents of the 13 American colonies and the British authorities, particularly in Massachusetts. On the night of April 18, 1775, hundreds of British troops marched from Boston to nearby Concord in order to seize an arms cache. Paul Revere and other riders sounded the alarm, and colonial militiamen began mobilizing to intercept the Redcoat column. A confrontation on the Lexington town green started off the fighting, and soon the British were hastily retreating under intense fire. Many more battles followed, and in 1783 the colonists formally won their independence.”

I say it’s time for we the people to march on Washington before they march on us!!

You need look no further than what happened to me, at the hands of my family - enraged by their hatred for Mesta.

Don’t think America is immune because Obama and the Democrats will have to use your own against you. There’s plenty ready and willing to go to the dark side.

What about a simultaneous march at the office of every member of Congress ? Every Representative, every Senator.

Like a big picnic, a big festival. Signs, music, pickup trucks, veterans, grandmas, kids, hunting clubs, college students, you name it. Dress up in colonial garb.

Those Congressmen that support it would be happy ! Use it for a media event for themselves !

Those that did not... hmmm.... big negative media event.

Strong words right there.
What happens when someone has their guns taken away on trumped up charges?
Do we have resources to help that person out?
Is there a promise of help when it is needed?
Do we have a base in place to help when the government comes to call?

The political elites and a compliant media will pick us off one by one and who will care?

But no doubt they will come for us individually in the still of the night

Sometimes, especially in weather like this, I'll hang out on the roof of my house and watch stars. Pants optional, which means probably not.

So trying to sneak up around here in the still of the night is a really bad idea, and leaves those sneaking around with a terrible last image (unless I have clothing on, which is unlikely) when they shuffle off this mortal coil. ;)

Thanks for weighing in on this Jim.

The NRA is valiantly trying to stem the tide of gutless craven GOPe Senators and Congresssmen (yes Toomey and Boehner included) who feel they have to “pass SOMETHIN’ or else).

The 2nd Amendment was recently reaffirmed by USSCt as an individual fundamental right to keep and bear arms, and NOW we go wobbly?

When the Court goes our way, we owe it to them to respect their decision even tho the Left does not.

Therein lies the problem. We need rapid response teams to protect our fellow gun owners who are under assault.

When the police show up to confiscate their weapons who do they reach out to ?

Their/our lawyers are members of the court and cannot tell them to resist. They lawyer can only respond after the fact, not during.

I have a carry permit

This is why we lose - we are law abiding citizens. Which means that, when they come for us, we will hand over our guns. Such has been the case in every instance of gun confiscation thus far - look at New York.

Free men don't ask permission to exercise their God-given rights.

Am I suggesting we skirt the law? Absolutely not. I simply offer these examples as an illustration of what, exactly, we are up against.

Would love it. In fact, just answered another inquiry by freepmail thusly:

“Well, the march I’m proposing is a peaceful, unarmed march (this time) to register our petition of grievance against the government’s threats of unconstitutional tyranny.

If I had my druthers, we’d have tens of thousands of armed citizens camping, marching and reenacting revolutionary and civil war battles, surrounding and just outside the DC boundaries for weeks on end.

Would love to have the sounds of booming cannon and musketry echoing through the quiet evening streets of DC, from all directions.”

For the children (God knows they no longer teach it in public schools):

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.—That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security...

Not to nitpick, but . . .

According to the national archives: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty . . .

It's the unalienable right to life (endowed by our Creator - a much higher authority than Congress or the White House) that gives us the natural right to keep and bear arms in defense of that life and our liberty. Those of us who cling to God and guns have an unalienable right to do so, and we cling a whole lot more strongly than the amoral left seems capable of understanding.

Of course, but that’s got to be on our political home turf.

What a great annual event that would be; have it at the local fairgrounds, etc. (or, like I said, at the Congressman’s office if they’re agin’ it) - all over America.

Solid weekend of 2A. Or make August 2A month or something, culminating in the national.

Need to start pushing gun clubs in schools like they used to have.

When they come for my neighbors, I will do my best to make sure that the tyrants will be unable to get a conviction. They may be able to steal guns from a few law-abiding citizens, but they won't get a felony conviction or jail time with a jury trial. That's what nullification is for. Arrest a few decent Americans, charge them with something frivolous, and fail to get a conviction because of widespread nullification, and it will all be over for Big Government - the remaining patriots won't wait for the thugs to come to them before they reach for the ballot box or some other appropriate box.

I'm praying that the far left fringe understand what they are about to provoke. They aren't very smart, but "shall not be infringed" is pretty clear even by liberal standards. I took an oath to defend my country against all enemies, foreign and domestic. My country includes my neighbors, "all enemies" includes gun grabbers, and that oath didn't come with an expiration date.

Amen on the gun clubs. That needs to go viral.

And August as second amendment month would be great. In fact, I’m more than willing and able to go “camping” for the entire month of August just outside of DC if there is an appropriate place to do so. That’d be “encamping” or bivouacking and reenacting Revolutionary and Civil War battles. Need a very large group to surround DC. And maybe daily patriotic parades through the city from different directions with companies of “civilian soldiers” marching and on horseback, complete with flags, pennants, fife and drum corps, musketry, caissons and cannon. If we can get (ahem) government permits to do so on the mall, great. If not, maybe outside the city limits.
