"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."
It is only 26 words. It is direct, brief, and forceful. I don’t know how any half-witted citizen, like it or not, can possibly not understand, “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.”
Our former president, His Majesty Barack Hussein Obama, was allegedly, a Constitutional attorney and He doesn’t get it. He must be a real dimwit or else He is willfully ignorant.
Apparently, the misunderstanding of what constitutes a “well-regulated militia” is the main reason for the confusion. But that confusion can be easily cleared by just reading the words of a few of our founding fathers. They told us exactly what they meant SO YOU CAN'T MISS IT!!
Richard Henry Lee, an American statesman, wrote in 1788, “To preserve liberty, it is the essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
Did you see that? Lee didn’t say we needed guns for hunting or sport. He said it was TO PRESERVE LIBERTY. An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a subject. Gun control is not about guns; it is about the government controlling the people.
George Washington, the first President of the United States said, “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 secure peace, security, and happiness, the rifle, and pistol are equally indispensable…the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”
General Washington led The American Revolution which could never have happened with gun control.
When you remove people’s rights to bear arms you create slaves. That’s not just my opinion. George Mason was a co-author of the Second Amendment. During Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution in 1788 he went on record with this statement, “I ask Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
And there were others. John Adams, president from 1797-1801, said, “Those who trade liberty for security have neither.”
Thomas Jefferson, president from 1801-1809, said, “Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.”
The woman in this video gets it right. The government's encroachment on her Second Amendment rights cost her the lives of her parents. While anti-gun Senator Chuck Schumer squirms, she explains, “The reason for the Second Amendment is so that we (the people) can protect ourselves from all of you (the government).
