The primary purpose for each of the ten Amendments that constitute our “Bill of Rights” can be seen in the Preamble to the Bill of Rights. You can find copies of this “Preamble” on a number of URLs, including: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bill_of_rights_transcript.html.
This “Preamble” was written by Congress and signed by the Speaker of the House and President of the Senate as a kind of “cover letter” for the first 13 Amendments proposed by Congress and then sent to each of the States of the Union for ratification. It explained the purpose of the first thirteen proposed amendments in the first paragraph of the Preamble which declares:
“THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.”
(The “further declaratory and restrictive clauses” are the Amendments that became the “Bill of Rights”.)
Thus, the fundamental purpose of the Bill of Rights and the 2nd Amendment is to “prevent misconstruction or abuse” of the “powers” of the Constitution.
The 2nd Amendment was not intended to help defend Americans against another invasion by the British since the British would never have any powers under the Constitution. Similarly, the 2nd Amendment was not intended to protect Americans against attacks by Indians since the Indians had no powers under the Constitution. Given that robbers, serial killers and deer and ducks have no powers under the Constitution, the 2nd Amendment was not intended to help us defend against criminals and psychopaths–at least in the private sector. It was not intended to let us go deer hunting in the Fall.
Yes, we can still use our arms to ward off attacks by foreign invaders or domestic psychopaths. But the second Amendment was intended to protect us against the one group of treasonous whores who would certainly try and might one day even be able to persuade Americans to voluntarily disarm: the national government. The Founders knew—they knew—that our own government (like all governments) would eventually try to disarm us in order to openly oppress us. So they enacted the 2nd Amendment as a means to protect future generations against their own government’s inevitable treason and tyranny.
Thus, the intended targets for each of the first ten Amendments–including the 2nd Amendment–are only those people who:
1) Have been delegated limited powers under the Constitution; and
2) Misconstrue or abuse those limited powers.
So, who have powers under the Constitution?
Answer: Those people who’ve been elected or appointed to the national government and allowed to exercise limited powers under the Constitution. That would include the President, the Vice President, each of the Senators, each member of the House of Representatives, all federal judges, and every bureaucrat or employee or even private corporation of the national government who’ve been appointed to exercise any “powers” under the Constitution.
Thus, the purpose of the 2nd Amendment must be to at least intimidate and, if necessary, shoot whichever officers or officials of the national government have “misconstrued or abused” their Constitutional powers.
The 2nd Amendment is not license for individuals to unilaterally decide to shoot the treasonous whores. Because the militia is involved in the 2nd Amendment, it appears that no one should be shot until the militia decide on who to shoot and why. The process of making such decisions is not specified.
Nevertheless, based on the Preamble to the Bill of Rights, the reason to shoot (misconstruction or abuse of the powers of the Constitution) and the people to be shot (officers and officials of the national government who misconstrue or abuse the powers of the Constitution) are apparent and, so far as I can see, logically irrefutable.
• Incidentally, this analysis should explain why government is so desperate to eliminate the 2nd Amendment. The government officials know that they are engaged in misconstruction and abuse of their constitutional powers (that’s treason) and are therefore the 2nd Amendment’s intended targets. Not wanting to be shot, the treasonous whores in the cat-house on the Potomac are eager to disarm Americans.
Therefore, while private citizens who advocate gun control may think they’re being mobilized to protect the children of Sandy Hook Elementary or innocent adults from gunfire, they’re actually being mobilized to protect those government officers and officials who are bent on “misconstruing or abusing” the powers of the Constitution and thereby committing treason against the American people.
• The Constitution of the United States defines treason at Article 3 Section 3 clause 1:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
Note that the words “them” and “their” are plural and refer back to the term “United States”. Thus, the term “United States” does not mean a singular or national “United States” but instead means the several “United States”–the 50 States of the Union.
The Constitution prohibits treason against the States of the Union, but offers no prohibition against treason against the singular/national “United States”. The Founders apparently thought so little of the new national government that they didn’t even bother to provide a constitutional definition for treason against the national government. Instead, consistent with the Preamble to the Bill of Rights and 2nd Amendment, the Founders recognized the national government as a threat that we should never trust and should always be prepared to fight.
Remember George Washington? He said, “Government, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” He wasn’t kidding. He and his generation knew that the best you could ever hope to get from government was a “dangerous servant”. He and his generation knew that if you surrendered your right to keep and bear arms, your “dangerous servant” would quickly morph in the “fearful master”. Therefore, Mr. Washington and his generation gave us a 2nd Amendment to guarantee that future generations always retained the right to keep and bear arms and thereby protect themselves against their own government/“dangerous servant”.
• Many of the “dangerous servants” currently employed by the national government are misconstruing or abusing the powers of the Constitution and thereby committing treason against the several “United States” and the American people. Those who knowingly misconstrue or abuse the powers of the Constitution are “Enemies” of the people of the several “United States”.
By advocating that Americans be disarmed, gun control advocates give “aid and comfort” to the “dangerous servants” who have become “Enemies” of the several “United States”—and who’d like to avoid being shot for treason.
By giving “aid and comfort” to the enemies of the several “United States,” gun control advocates are, themselves, arguably guilty of treason.
• As a final note, gun control advocates presumably believe the Obama administration is composed of decent men and women determined to do whatever is best for America.
I think that’s a bunch of crap.
Obama is known to have a list of people who he intends to assassinate with drones and without any judicial process. If we only count the number of individuals that Obama has already targeted for assassination and killed with drones, he has probably killed more targeted people than Ted Bundy or John Wayne Gacey. If we count the collateral deaths inflicted on innocent people who just happened to be close by the individual assassinated by Obama, he may already be one of the top serial killers of all time.
I see Obama as at least a psychopath and probably something Satanic. We have psychopath in the White House with a demonstrated capacity to murder people without judicial process or conscience—and the gun control nuts want to disarm America and trust our security to an admitted murderer. Are those gun control nuts out of their effing minds?
But let’s presume I’m wrong, the gun control nuts are right and Obama really is one helluva nice guy. And let’s presume that gun control advocates succeed in repealing the 2nd Amendment and eliminating any private right to keep and bear arms.
What happens when Obama (Mr. Nice) is gone?
Another administration will take over the presidency. And then another after that.
What guarantee do we have that–while Obama & Co. may be a bunch of sweethearts–that some future administration won’t be a bunch of murderous, treasonous whores bent on the destruction of this nation?
Once the guns are removed from private hands, how will future generations of private American defend themselves against a future government controlled by murderous fascists?
Can you gun control nuts guarantee that this nation’s government will never be taken over by a pack of Hitler-like Nazis or Stalin-like Communists? Can you guarantee that some similar take-over hasn’t already taken place, or isn’t already in progress?
What right or moral principle is sufficient to justify today’s gun control nuts depriving future generations of their capacity to defend themselves against murderous fascists in Washington?
There is no such right or moral principle.
On the other hand, there is massive, persistent and irrefutable evidence that during the 20th century nearly 200 million people were murdered by their own governments—after they first agreed to accept “gun control”. I doubt that there is a single example in all of world history where a nation disarmed and didn’t come to a terrible ending. And yet, gun control nuts advocate giving up our guns to the government of a man known to assassinate individuals.
Gun control advocates are stupid, ignorant of history, mentally unbalanced and/or satanic. If they have their way, they’ll get millions of American killed.
To Hell with gun control.
To Hell with gun control advocates.
Fight for the 2nd Amendment as if your life and your kids’ lives and your grandkids’ lives depend on it—because they do.
I reiterate: To Hell with gun control advocates.
