There Is No Freedom Without Gun Rights

The reason we have a Second Amendment is to guarantee private citizens the right to defend themselves from both criminals and tyrannical government.

Without the right to bear arms, we are little more than subjects at the mercy of both our rulers and the barbarians among us.

It really is amazing that millions of Americans have simply accepted the idea that the government can tell you which guns you can and cannot own, or, worse whether or not you can own a gun in the first place.

The whole point of this “freedom” thing is that the government shouldn’t get to tell you what you can and cannot do, for the most part.

And this includes owning a firearm.

Without the right to own a firearm, you are not fully free and independent.

It’s not that complicated.

The whole point of the Second Amendment was to establish the fact that the government cannot take away your right to arm–and thereby defend–yourself.

But the idea of a natural right to self defense against tyranny and criminality goes way beyond even our Founding Fathers. In 350 B.C., in his book “Politics,” Aristotle wrote:

“As of oligarchy so of tyranny … Both mistrust the people, and therefore deprive them of their arms.”

The link above contains many more historical references to the right to self-defense, from Jesus in the Bible to Cicero in Ancient Rome, to Baron Montesquieu during the Enlightenment. The common theme is a simple one: people must retain the right to defend themselves.

An armed citizen is a more secure citizen. He knows that he has the ability to defend himself and his family from whatever trouble may come his way.

I really don’t understand how people can think, “Only the government should be allowed to have guns.” To think that you’d have to either be a tyrant or doing a tyrant’s bidding–wittingly or unwittingly.

What exceptions would I accept on the right to bear arms? None, just like with the right to free speech. Both are unbending and absolute.

Just as the government does not have the authority to tell you what you can and cannot say, it does not have the authority to tell you which guns you can and cannot own. Well, let me rephrase that: it shouldn’t have that authority, but over the years it has slowly but surely acquired it.

The Bill of Rights made it clear that gun control was simply not something that was to be under the government’s purview. It’s off-limits, not up for discussion, non-negotiable.

But essentially since the New Deal, the role of government in our society has expanded dramatically, and along with it, the American Public’s idea of what the government can and cannot do.

Today, the answer to the question “What can the government do?” is, “Basically everything.”

But it was not intended to be that way at the start. The Founding Fathers were very clear that they wanted limitations on the power and scope of government. For example, it took until 1913 for the federal government to gain the power to tax your income. Prior to that the government did not have the authority to tax you.

It sounds hard to believe now because we’re taxed so damn much, but it’s true. And now we live in a country where people just assume the government has unlimited authority.

My point is that the whole idea of gun control should be off-limits. We shouldn’t even be having this debate over gun control and AR-15s.

But unfortunately the exponential growth of government over the past hundred years or so has made people believe the government’s purview is everything.

Again, it wasn’t always this way. From the founding of the country until 1930, total federal spending averaged about 3% of GDP:

Outside of the Civil War, government spending between 1791-1930 never really went above 2-3% of GDP.

But the New Deal changed all of that. Under the guise of “getting us out of the Depression,” FDR’s countless programs and “efforts” enabled the government to amass an incredible amount of power. Government spending–which represents its authority and power–took off and never looked back.

Today, government spending is around 25% of GDP. We’ve been living in the era of Big Government for nearly 100 years–Bill Clinton was lying when he famously said “the era of Big Government is over.”

The whole point of this history lesson is to underscore the point that there was a time when Americans understood that there were limits on government power.

The prospect of the government banning certain types of firearms would be just as absurd to the founding generation as the prospect of the government imposing an income tax: to them, those simply weren’t things the government had the authority to do. To them, gun control would not even be up for discussion.

And that’s the way it should be: the Second Amendment guarantees that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.

The reason is that Americans are supposed to be free–they shouldn’t need permission from the government to own a firearm.

The right to self-defense against both criminals and tyrannical governments is one of the most basic and essential of all natural rights.

I understand people want to Do Something about these mass shootings–believe me, I wish they weren’t a regular occurrence in our society today. Just because I oppose gun control doesn’t mean I am not concerned about these mass shootings.

In fact I largely see calls for gun control as a non-sequitur in response to mass shootings. The problem isn’t the guns, it’s the people carrying them out and the society that produces sick, twisted young men that are capable of that type of evil.

Gun control is a dodge to avoid getting to the real problem: the fact that we now inhabit a very sick country that produces murderous psychopaths that go on shooting rampages every few months.

There is nothing that could convince me the Second Amendment is not of immense value to us Americans and our freedom. Mass shootings are terrible but they still do not mean law-abiding Americans should have to relinquish their right to self-defense.

Mass shootings don’t mean Americans have to give up their right to self-defense.

This is why so many of us on the right refuse to even discuss the idea of gun control: because any form of it is incompatible with a free society.

Hopefully this explanation makes it a bit easier for people on the left to understand, because it’s become apparent they have no idea why the Second Amendment exists.

People need to get out of this “ruler-subject mindset” that has taken hold of our country over the past 100 years. Just because the government now has virtually unlimited power doesn’t mean it should; there are areas where the government should have no power.

Americans: we are not subjects. The Founders intended the government to answer to us, not the other way around.

The moment you accept the premise of gun control, you give up any remaining pretense that America is a free country.

Invader Congresswoman Ilhan Omar: “This is Not Going to be the Country of White People”

Western compassion for the poor, destitute and downtrodden for the world is rewarded with this:

“Asserting that America “was founded on the history of Native American genocide, on the backs of black slaves,” she went on to brazenly state, “This is not going to be the country of white people.”

Imagine if a white Republican had made a speech in which he or she asserted, “This is not going to be the country of black people.”

Their political career would be finished and their reputation would be tainted for the rest of their life.

But since the last acceptable form of racism is racism against white people, Omar’s statement is a mere footnote.”

We opened up our country to ungrateful invaders who hate us. Not only do they hate us, they are actively working to facilitate the downfall of the white race. They are openly celebrating the fact that with each passing year, the white share of the population in America decreases.

This is how our kindness and compassion is rewarded. We open our doors to people who live in shithole countries, and this is how they repay us.

Imagine moving to China and boldly proclaiming that “this is not going to be the country of Asian people.”

Or moving to the Congo and stating, “This is not going to be the country of black people.”

That’s what Ilhan Omar did.

She is literally an invader. She is an enemy of the American people, and working to facilitate the downfall of America as it has existed since the Founding.

Why is she allowed to say these things? I thought we lived in a white supremacist country that brutally oppressed minorities?

If that was the case, Ilhan Omar would not only have never gotten away with saying that, she would have never even sniffed the halls of the US Congress in the first place.

Of course the idea that America is a white supremacist country is utter nonsense.

The reason Ilhan Omar is allowed to openly celebrate the fact that America will no longer be a white country in a couple short decades is that those who run this country endorse her views. The Globalist Uniparty Elite also eagerly anticipates the day white Americans lose their majority status.

Why? Why is there such an open obsession with eliminating the white race?

Because America as founded is (was) too hard for the Globalist Elite to exploit and subjugate. For most of the past two and a half centuries, Americans–and much of Western Europe–were born into freedom. They had the right to free speech, the right to bear arms–they were free from government tyranny.

In this regard, America and Western Europe were unique in the world: they were full of free Christian people and governed by mostly competent and mostly upstanding leaders. Their institutions were mostly moral, patriotic and rooted in traditional values.

All this made them exceedingly difficult for the Globalist Elite–which emerged in the past half-century, perhaps even as early as the end of World War II–to bring to heel and exploit. Free people who know nothing but freedom are nearly impossible for Corporate/Government Overlords to exploit and subjugate. They won’t allow it. So the solution became clear to the globalist elite: overrun and replace the free westerners.

Because America and Western Europe are historically white nations, in order for the global elite to subjugate them, the global elite had to replace their native populations with foreigners who are easier to rule and exploit. Demographic replacement erases the history, values and soul of a nation, and that’s exactly what’s going on.

The elites are obsessed with demographically replacing white people in America because white people represent the link to America as it was founded–free and Christian.
