The Founders, through the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and their amendments, endowed the US with many advanced political concepts that are today frequently overlooked or misunderstood by the half educated well brainwashed graduates of modern universities. Sometimes called Obama’s zombies.
It is frequently argued that the 2nd amendment, the right to bear arms, exists only to cover the right of citizens to hunt and or defend their homes from criminals. This is blindingly philistine, but typical of today’s ignorant of history “Progressives”.
The Constitution of the Republic of the United States has one main underlying theme, and that is to maximise the rights of citizens, to limit the power of government, but most importantly, and at the heart of its philosophy, it supports the right of the people to rebel against a govt perceived as unlawful. At the core of this intent is the 2nd amendment.
Most socialist democracies across the west lack this fundamental legal right to rebel. Even sadder, its not even missed by most of their citizenry.
They lack the right to rebel, and due to their callow belief in the goodness of big government, underpinned by their ignorance of history, they don’t miss it. They are so weak and submissive and content in that lame submission, they don’t even want it.
Voters in the West, and worse, within the United States, rail against gun ownership without realising what a precious and unique right the US citizens have been given.
US citizens who know their history, who know what the Constitution and the Bill of Rights really gives them, value this right and seek to fiercely protect it against the predations of the left. Those whose intent is to take that right away.
Those who seek to disarm the citizens of the US are seeking an outcome that runs counter to the spirit of the founding documents of the Republic. Through ignorance and misplaced faith in big govt they hold the precious rights their founders bestowed upon them in utter contempt.
They need to wake from their ignorance and understand what is at stake here, and why true Americans will not surrender their arms or their rights under the 2nd Amendment to dirty little communist fly by nights such as Obama and his disciples.
Obama and his ignorant of history acolytes pursue their anti-American objectives at their own peril.
