The government has been infringing on the right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms for over a hundred years, but really got going in 1934. As one can plainly see reading the Gun Law page, court decisions in the 1800’s clearly favored the citizens and their Constitutionally protected rights, as judges and politicians understood and respected the limitations set upon the government by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Not so today. Today judges are mostly hacks in black, activists pushing a “living document” ideology for the Constitution, and “reimagining” or making up the law as they desire.
The government these days uses every opportunity that arises to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, heralding gun control as a national security issue, a public health issue, and a means to reduce the incidence of murder, an act which is already a forbidden by law. They pretend that when laws are broken, that means there aren’t enough laws, and passing more laws will alleviate the situation and put an end to criminal behavior. They claim their newest proposal will do what the previous 23,000+ laws on guns failed to do. It’s bullshit.
The fact of the matter is, gun control is not about reducing crime, or stopping murder and violence, but is only pursued to secure the government’s monopoly on violence. Politicians and bureaucrats want their agents and police to be the only ones ALLOWED to possess firearms; yes, their arrogance is so vast that they believe it’s within their power to ALLOW or FORBID the exercise of a basic and natural right. Authoritarians seek to disarm the public, desperately fearing the citizens they attempt to control. They realize absolute compliance is impossible when the People are armed. Witness the words of the fraudulently installed Joey Biden:
If gun control’s purpose was fighting crime and murder, the 23,000 laws on the books regarding firearms would have been unnecessary. We wouldn’t need tens of thousands of gun laws; no, it would have only required a handful to a few dozen laws, actively and properly enforced to punish offenders. However, armed criminals such as murderers, rapists and thieves are almost never held strictly accountable, by design, and thus the problem remains as they reoffend. These predictable results provide the excuse to pass more laws, as well as to close “loopholes” bill sponsors unfortunately missed in previous iterations.
Violence spreads, their plan works as intended, and the government keeps passing additional laws to chip away at citizens’ right to arms, slowly but surely disarming more and more Americans. The government uses “gun control” laws to turn the People it was created to serve into criminals themselves, should they retain their firearms, and defenseless victims if they comply with unconstitutional laws.
And once citizens are completely disarmed, there will be no law, no insult, no infringement too severe, for the People will have no means to resist. We the People will be reduced to slaves.
… unless we fight these corrupt and unconstitutional so-called laws, regulations and policies.
Non-compliance. Defiance. Resistance and rebellion. Nullification. Protests. (Don’t bother with ballot initiatives, as the elections are rigged and election boards ignore policies passed by state legislatures).
