If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight? (Posted on January 3, 2013 by Dean Garrison)

If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight?

solgunsI feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.

About a month ago I let the “democracy” word slip in a discussion with a fellow blogger. I know better. Americans have been conditioned to use this term. It’s not an accurate term and it never has been a correct term to describe our form of government. The truth is that the United States of America is a constitutional republic. This is similar to a democracy because our representatives are selected by democratic elections, but ultimately our representatives are required to work within the framework of our constitution. In other words, even if 90% of Americans want something that goes against our founding principles, they have no right to call for a violation of constitutional rights.

If you are religious you might choose to think of it this way… Say that members of your congregation decide that mass fornication is a good thing. Do they have the right to change the teachings of your God? The truth is the truth. It doesn’t matter how many people try to stray from it. Did I just compare our founders to God? In a way I did, but please note that I am not trying to insult anyone. For the purpose of the American Government our constitution and founders who wrote it are much like God is to believers. It is the law. It is indisputable.

Our founders did not want a “democracy” for they feared a true democracy was just as dangerous as a monarchy. The founders were highly educated people who were experienced in defending themselves against tyranny. They understood that the constitution could protect the people by limiting the power of anyone to work outside of it much better than a pure system of popularity. A system of checks and balances was set up to help limit corruption of government and also the potential for an “immoral majority” developing within the American People. We have forgotten in this country that we are ultimately ruled by a constitution.

Why is a democracy potentially just as dangerous as a monarchy? Let’s look at something that Benjamin Franklin said because it answers that question more fully and succinctly than I can.

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

Even 230+ years ago our founders were perceptive enough to realize that democracy was a dangerous form of government. How so? Because the citizens of a country can become just as corrupt as any government. We have seen evidence of this throughout history. Ask Native Americans and African-Americans if this population can become corrupt.

I think in 2012 we are seeing evidence of what Franklin was trying to tell us. Just because a majority of people may support certain ideas it does not mean that those ideas are just. In simple terms, just because most Americans love our president and voted for him, it does not mean that he has the power to go against our constitutional rights.

Next I’d like to review the text of the second amendment. It is very clear. This is the law of this land. So when Senator Feinstein or President Obama talk about taking your guns, you need to think about something. Are they honoring their sworn oath to uphold the constitution?

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.

supremeThis is a pretty clear statement. The fact is that it took 232 years for the Supreme Court to even rule on this amendment because it has never been successfully challenged. In 2008 a case ofColumbia v. Heller the Supreme Court ruled that a handgun ban in Washington D.C. was unconstitutional. One also has to take this into consideration. The Supreme Court supports your right to own guns. If you want to research this decision further you can start here.

For those who try to debate the spirit of the 2nd amendment, they are truly no different from people who will try to take Biblical quotes out of context to try to support their immoral decisions. The founders were very clear on the intent of the 2nd amendment. Let me share a few quick quotes here:

The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

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, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. -George Washington

The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -Samuel Adams

founderspicI could find hundreds of quotes like these. This country was built on the right to bear arms. It was built on the rights of an individual to bear arms, regardless of what his government or neighbor happened to think. This is crystal clear. Ironically the people who voice their opinions against this right have their free speech protected by your guns. Without guns in this country, all other amendments become null and void, simply because “We the People” will lose our power of enforcement.

We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple.

A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much  in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if I was gunned down, but in the end I would be the only true American among us.

Our framers were very clear on this. If my government comes to take my guns, they are violating one of my constitutional rights that is covered by the 2nd amendment.

soulonfireIt is not my right, at that point, but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty.What I am telling you is something that many are trying to soft sell, and many others have tried to avoid putting into print, but I am going to say it. The time for speaking in code is over.

If they come for our guns then it is our constitutional right to put them six feet under. You have the right to kill any representative of this government who tries to tread on your liberty. I am thinking about self-defense and not talking about inciting a revolution. Re-read Jefferson’s quote. He talks about a “last resort.” I am not trying to start a Revolt, I am talking about self-defense. If the day for Revolution comes, when no peaceful options exist, we may have to talk about that as well. None of us wants to think about that, but please understand that a majority can not take away your rights as an American citizen. Only you can choose to give up your rights.

Congress could pass gun ban legislation by a 90%+ margin and it just would not matter. I think some people are very unclear on this. This is the reason we have a Supreme Court, and though I do not doubt that the Supreme Court can also become corrupt, in 2008 they got it right. They supported the constitution. It does not matter what the majority supports because America is not a democracy. A constitutional republic protects the rights of every single citizen, no matter what their “elected servants” say. A majority in America only matters when the constitution is not in play.

I just wrote what every believer in the constitution wants to say, and what every constitutional blogger needs to write. The truth of the matter is that this type of speech is viewed as dangerous and radical or subversive, and it could gain me a world of trouble that I do not want. It is also the truth. To make myself clear I will tell you again. If they come for your guns it is your right to use those guns against them and to kill them. You are protected by our constitution.

Most of the articles I am reading on the subject are trying to give you clues without just coming out and saying it. I understand that because certain things in this country will get you on a list that you don’t want to be on. I may well be on that list. This blog is small and growing so I may not be there yet, but I have dreams. I also have my own list of subversives and anyone who attempts to deny my constitutional rights is on that list.

I am not the “subversive” here, it is the political representatives who are threatening to take away my inalienable rights. If they come to take my guns and I leave a few of them wounded or dead, and I somehow survive, I have zero doubt that I will spend a long time in prison and may face an execution. But I would much rather be a political prisoner than a slave.

If I go down fighting then I was not fighting to harm these human beings. I was simply defending my liberty and yours. It is self-defense and it is what our country was built on. We won our freedom in self-defense. We would not be ruled by a tyrannical government in the 1770′s and we will not be ruled in 2012 by a tyrannical government. There is no difference.

This is a case of right and wrong. As of now the 2nd amendment stands. It has never been repealed. If Feinstein or Barack have a problem with the constitution then they should be removed from office. They are not defending the constitution which they have sworn an oath to protect. It is treasonous to say the least. They would likely say the same about me, but I have the constitution, the founders, and the supreme court on my side. They only have their inflated egos.

I am not writing this to incite people. I am writing this in hopes that somehow I can make a tiny difference. I have no idea how many of my neighbors have the will to defend their constitutional rights. 2%? 20%? I am afraid that 20% is a high number, unfortunately.When push comes to shove many people may give up and submit to being ruled. I believe that our government is banking on this.

What I do know is that this country was founded by people who had balls the size of Texas and Patriotic Americans take shit off of no one, especially our own government. For evidence of that, you might research the Revolutionary War. My question is how many Patriots are left?

I would hope that our officials come to realize that, regardless of our numbers, we still exist because they are calling Patriotic Americans to action. They are making us decide if we want to die free or submit to their rule. I can not tell you where you should stand on that. I do know that it may make the difference between living a life of freedom or slavery.

thinkingYou must start thinking about this because I believe that the day is coming soon and I personally believe it has already been planned. Not all conspiracy theories are hogwash. They may throw down the gauntlet soon and my suggestion is that you prepare yourself to react.

I mean no disrespect to our elected officials but they need to understand that “We the People” will not be disarmed. If they proceed then it is they that are provoking us and we will act accordingly. We are within our rights to do so.

For those who are in support of taking the guns, you need to ask yourself a very important question, and I am not just talking about the politicians, because if you support them, you have chosen your side.

Are you willing to die to take my guns?

Economic Collapse And A Collapse Of The Value Of The Dollar Are Coming Soon; A PLANNED DESTRUCTION OF AMERICAN FREEDOM (2-21-2013)

Active Title Link: Economic Collapse And A Collapse Of The Value Of The Dollar Are Coming Soon; A PLANNED DESTRUCTION OF AMERICAN FREEDOM (2-21-2013)

21FEB

Economic collapse and a collapse in the value of the dollar are both coming soon as a result of A PLANNED DESTRUCTION OF AMERICAN FREEDOM and mathematical certainty.

Every single adult America should Google Search and YouTube Search both “economic collapse” and “dollar collapse” without the quote marks and spend many hours (if not a number of days) reviewing the Search Results.

President Obama put on a hell of a Show “Full of Lies And Lies of Omission” during his State Of The Union Address. (Obama knew that he was often just acting to fool the American Public, and that he did not mean much of what he said. He had to know he was lying, as per the material below.)

Our Congressmen, Congresswomen and Senators all helped Obama to fool the American Public with their clapping, cheering, smiles and backslapping. (“Washington DC became Hollywood that night.” Brainwashing of the American Public was the purpose of SOTU Address. Much Truth Was Omitted, and Very Little Truth Was Said.)

During the SOTU Address OBAMA IGNORED both the looming economic collapse and the looming collapse of the dollar, despite the Fact that HE IS FULLY AWARE of these things.

His awareness is apparent by the fact that our Federal Government UNDER HIS DIRECTION has been “gearing up heavily of late” for Martial Law.

Evidence of the Federal Government gearing up for Martial Law lately are the facts that

(1) it has recently purchased OVER TWO BILLION BULLETS FOR DOMESTIC USE, over six for every man woman and child,

(2) they have recently hired a lot of people under various Federal agencies and with various labels to man the guns that can shoot these bullets (the Feds RECENTLY STARTED AN ARMED FEMA Corps, in addition to the TSA, the Department of Homeland Security, the FBI, the CIA, the NSA, the ATF, the Border Patrol, the National Guard, the Army Reserve, the Army, the Marines, the Navy, and the Coast Guard).

(3) the Feds have recently forged working alliances with the police in preparation for martial law, to include arming them more heavily and giving them much military equipment,

(4) there have been preparations made to use U.S. Military, United Nations, and NATO troops in U.S. cities and on U.S. soil, and preparedness exercises are being planned and carried out.

Obama is aware of all of the above, as HE AS COMMANDER IN CHIEF IS DIRECTING AND OVERSEEING IT.

Martial Law will Inevitably Be Enacted when economic collapse and a collapse of the value dollar occurs.

This is because these economic events a precipitate rapid loss of purchasing power such that a dollar will only be able to buy a half, a quarter, a tenth, or even less than a tenth of what it could a short time before.

A rapid loss of purchasing power will cause a run on the banks as everyone tries to get their money out at once so as to be able to spend it before it becomes worthless.

At the same time as a run on the banks occurs, there will be a rapid emptying of grocery store shelves, fuel shortages, other widespread shortages of all sorts, hunger, civil unrest (rioting), and a great deal of crime involving force and the use of a gun will ALL occur.

The only answer to all of the above is Martial Law, of course!

Let us go back for a moment and take a look at what caused all this.

No Federal Government can spend more than a trillion dollars a year more than it takes in and simply borrow more “printed money” to make up the shortfall without there being economic disaster as an end result.

The above is exactly what is happening in America since Obama was first elected, and it is clear to all that our politicians cannot fix this.

President Obama’s main agendas in his State Of The Union Address were (1) to pretend that everything was OK in America, and on track to get better, (2) to propose a smokescreen of numerous Federal programs to improve some things, and (3) to emphasize his Main Point, which was that “America Needs To Be Disarmed Of Weapons That May Be Useful Against Its Criminal Federal Government”, and to heck with the Second Amendment.

President Obama should win an Oscar for lying so effectively to the American public during his State Of The Union Address.

Obama knows full well that the economy in America is not going to hold up for four more years. He knows that Martial Law is going to come to America during his tenure as President, and very possibly come this year.

However, Mr. Obama has been assigned the task of keeping the American Public in the dark in regard to the Collapse of the Dollar that is coming soon, and the Inevitable Martial Law that follows. That is exactly what he is doing (keeping the American public in the dark by lying by omission).

This Author expects that economic collapse and a collapse in the value of the dollar to happen some time in 2013. (Some economists say that economic collapse in America could happen as early as this April as a result of dismal tax revenue this year.)

When economic collapse in America happens, what are President Obama, our politicians, and main stream media all going to try to say?

Are they going to try to say things like “It’s not our fault” or “We did not see this coming” or “We should have warned you to arm yourselves against bandits and to store months worth of food in advance”?

No, they are going to say “It Is Time For You To Hand In All Of Your Guns, and It Is Time For Martial Law!”

“Oh, by the way… We Just Happen To Have a FEMA Train with shackles, a FEMA Camp with barb wire to hold you in, and a FEMA Coffin that fits a half a dozen bodies All Waiting For YOU!”

Important Note: Allen Darman finds it very interesting that in writing this WordPress Blog on a Smart Phone he was not hacker blocked and prevented from Publishing it on his Smart Phone UNTIL HE PUT IN THE LAST PHASE OF “A PLANNED DESTRUCTION OF AMERICAN FREEDOM” in the First Paragraph (and then amended the Blog Title to reflect such). Such is STRONGLY SUGGESTIVE THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IS OCCURRING…. >>>A PLANNED DESTRUCTION OF AMERICAN FREEDOM<<<
