What Does the Second Amendment Mean?

Found here: americanthinker.com by David Deming It’s one of the most controversial passages of the Constitution. Allegedly, it’s also one of the most obscure and unintelligible sections. The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads, “a well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and […]

Bill Whittle: Your Second Amendment

Found here: frontpagemag.com by Bill Whittle TRANSCRIPT: YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT Hi everybody. I’m Bill Whittle and this is the Firewall. Just as a quick public service announcement in these days of increasing lawlessness, Federal encroachment on constitutional limits, and crybaby Progressive whininess in general, I thought I might take a moment to pass out a […]

Good Citizens and Good Neighbors: The Gun Owners’ Role

Found here: nraila.org Here at NRA, we are big fans of responsible behavior … legal mandates, not so much.  We think the Founders of this country were right to trust its people with the freedom to make their own choices.  We also think they were wise to build checks into our constitutional system so that […]

The Development and Declaration of The Right to Bear Arms in England.

Observations from Chapter three, The Second Amendment Primer by Les Adams: The Development and Declaration of The Right In England. Why does the development and declaration of the right to bear arms in England matter to modern Americans? It is because the English system of Government had a profound impact on the development of the […]

Standing on The Shoulders of Giants

These observations come from Chapter one in The Second Amendment Primer by Les Adams, Early Expressions of The Right in Ancient Times. Continuing my journey through this book I have seen that we are not simply relying on the philosophies of the modern politician or solely on those of our founding fathers. We are standing […]

An Individual Right Equal to All Others

Currently, I am reading The Second Amendment Primer by Les Adams. Chapter by chapter I will seek to highlight critical points and add some analysis for practical application in the defense of the right to bear arms. Thus far it has been a magnificent book, and in the Foreword and Introduction alone some truly profound […]

The Power of Individual Liberty

It is the power of the free individual that has, can and will change the world. When men are free there is no limit to the greatness that can be achieved.  In the past, this nation waged long and bloody wars to fight for this ideal. Our founding fathers, quite literally, laid it all on […]

Sometimes Outmanned. Never Outgunned.

I am not writing this to rally troops to a cause to go and topple a regime. Sometimes folks need a reminder as to exactly what it is we need to remember in order to remain a great and prosperous nation. In the wake of political drama, I pause to think about this nation, and […]

Glenn Beck’s Open Letter to Gov. Cuomo

In this open letter from Glenn Beck to NY Gov. Cuomo he asks some questions and demands answers of the greatest importance. Liberty is not defended when a politician from one side of the aisle demands that all of the good citizens with whom he disagrees leave his state. That is the opposite of Liberty. […]

Right to Keep and Bear Arms Preceded U.S. Constitution

Found here on breitbart.com by Awr Hawkins The right to keep and bear arms preceded the U.S. Constitution, as our Founding Fathers “propounded” the right but did not create it. They enshrined it via the Bill of Rights, all the while knowing the origin of the right itself was to be found in “the Laws […]

What is Gun Control really about?

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.  Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent  homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.” Cesare Beccaria, […]

Epidemic of Evil

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government […]

Attack on Individual Liberty, The Family, and Religion

The attack on our 2nd Amendment rights is usually masked as an effort to reduce criminal violence. It almost always exploits the emotional response to a firearm related tragedy in order to overcome facts, logic and to pervert America’s founding principles. Root causes of the senseless criminal violence epitomized in school shootings and inner city […]

Excerpt and Review of: “The Second Amendment – Preserving the Inalienable Right of Individual Self – Protection” by David Barton

Excerpt from pages 50 – 51: “In addition to the “times change” argument for “evolving” the Second amendment, there is also the subjective, emotional argument. That is, since every individual with a sense of humanity detests seeing families destroyed, innocent children sacrificed, and promising lives snuffed out as a result of gun violence, the argument […]

An Excerpt and Review of “Gun Rites” by Frank Meyer

An excerpt from Gun Rites by Frank Meyer Ch. 7, p. 109: “Many Americans who have never taken part in the rites of “gun culture” would find it difficult to understand. The freedom of owning and using guns went far deeper than the recreation of hunting. It was deeper than the right of taking personal […]

As the Gunny Sees It – Gun Control is an Assault on God Given Rights

Posted on February 10, 2013 at rebuildingfreedom.org by Old Marine After every mass shooting, the Left’s (I use this term to cover ALL of those who seek to destroy America) knee jerk reaction is to attempt to pass gun control legislation, even though most rational people realize that no laws will EVER prevent evil people from getting firearms or anything […]
