Arms for What? We Have the Answer

Wisconsin –-( On July 26, 1953 “Fidel Castro”Ruiz tried to take over Cuba.

His first effort failed, so he launched a 5 year plan of coalition building and logistics.

On March 17, 1958 Castro declared “total war” on the government of Fulgencio Batista y Zaldivar. On January 1, 1959 Batista resigned and fled Cuba. Upon the success of that goal, he turned around and asked his allies to turn in their weapons. He put the question this way, “Armas para que?” or “Arms for what?”

It took two years to disarm his former allies. In 1961 Castro announced, “I am a Marxist-Leninist.”

Then he asked the question, “Elections for what?” He then enslaved the Cuban people, turning that nation into an island prison.

The Constitution Party of Wisconsin (CPoW) has an answer for “Arms for what?” Given the sinful nature of man, no one individual or group of individuals should have a monopoly on power. Constitution Party of Wisconsin supports our Republic, with constitutional checks and balances, including the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. The Second Amendment prohibits any interference with gun ownership by saying: “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.”

Constitution Party of Wisconsin has several reasons for gun ownership.

  1. It is your Constitutional Right. Our Platform States: “The right to bear arms is inherent in the right of self defense, defense of the family, and defense against tyranny, conferred on the individual and the community by our Creator to safeguard life, liberty, and property, as well as to help preserve the independence of the nation. The right to keep and bear arms is guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the Constitution; it may not properly be infringed upon or denied.” CPoW defines Constitutional Carry, as no restrictions, no taxes, and no prior permission from any level of government. It is a Right, not a privilege. The CPoW platform further states, “The Constitution Party upholds the right of the citizen to keep and bear arms. We oppose attempts to prohibit ownership of guns by law-abiding citizens, and stand against all laws which would require the registration of guns or ammunition.”
  2. A well used firearm is an excellent way to fend off criminals. A firearm is the only equalizer that gives an elderly man or woman a chance against street gangs, thugs, rioters, rapists and murderers. Our Platform states; “We emphasize that when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have them. In such circumstances, the peaceful citizen’s protection against the criminal would be seriously jeopardized.”
  3. Constitution Party of Wisconsin supports property ownership, including the Castle Doctrine. The homeowner has the God-given Right to defend his home against theft, invasion, and murder: to “safeguard life, liberty, and property.” “If a thief be found breaking up, and he be smitten that he die, there shall be no blood shed for him.” Exodus 22:2 The next verse does say, if it is daytime, and you can see he is stealing, then he ought not be killed, but forced to pay restitution by the judges. The security of home is what is being emphasized, not the well-being of a criminal.
  4. Most importantly, the citizen needs to bear arms to defend against tyranny. People under NAZI rule were crying out for rifles. People wanted a fighting chance, after realizing that appeasement forged their chains. Our Platform further states, “We call for the repeal of all federal firearms legislation, beginning with the Federal Firearms Act of 1968.” That Act mirrors the NAZI Firearms Act of 1938, which disarmed the German citizen. Constitution Party of Wisconsin opposes all acts of disarmament, “We call for the rescinding of all executive orders, the prohibition of any future executive orders, and the prohibition of treaty ratification which would in any way limit the right to keep and bear arms.”

Constitution Party of Wisconsin affirms that an armed citizen is a mark of a free nation. The armed citizen is part of America’s defense. America has outstanding Armed Forces, but they are deployed around the world.

Any enemy would find 300,000,000 armed citizens a deterrent, no matter what they say. Constitutional Carry is the way to go. Registries only serve as tools for rogue governments to disarm the citizenry. That begs the question, If a civil government is honest, then why does it insist on rendering innocent people helpless? Why does it insist on taking away the Nation’s homedefense?
