A Time to Fight for Freedom and the Constitution

Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- In 2012, nearly four years ago, after the shooting at Sandy Hook, the future of the Republic and the Constitution looked dim.  We had seen a President who disdained the Constitution, who flaunted his power, who had the media on his side and a Congress that conspired with him, be re-elected.  This happened in spite of numerous scandals that should have resulted in his impeachment.

It appeared the seeds of severe European type gun control were going to pass Congress.  Leaders among Second Amendment supporters were grim.  Some said that we could not win. Some claimed that the best we could do was to  compromise and hope to mitigate the damage.  They were wrong.  It took enormous hard work.  It took determination and guts.  But we won.

The Gun Owners of America were steadfast.  The NRA held firm.  No more infringements on the Second Amendment.  Tens of millions of activists across the nation made our case in emails, tweets, essays, comments, and discussion boards.  We sent overwhelming numbers of phone calls and emails to our representatives.  We were right and we won. No more infringements were passed in Congress.  A couple of Democrat states, financed with Bloomberg money, fortified with dirty tricks, passed some evil measures in a couple of legislatures.  Patriots have steadfastly refused to comply.  In a dozen other states, Second Amendment freedoms are being restored.

Now we face another daunting battle.   This time, the odds have improved. We removed some weak sisters in the Congress who claimed to be on our side.  The President who wants us disarmed has seven months in office, not another four years.  The presumed Republican nominee, Donald Trump, has made support of the Second Amendment a major theme in his campaign.  Just as important, the old media cartel has been weakened.  Many people see how it has been advancing its agenda with lies and through manipulation. It is not as hard for a majority to understand how much we have been lied to and mislead.  For the first time in 50 years, a majority of Americans equate guns with safety instead of fear.  Since 2012, 50 million guns have been added to the private stock in the United States.

It makes absolutely no sense, after a successful Islamic terror attack that killed 49 people and wounded 53 more, to call for the disarmament of Americans. Yet that is exactly what Barak Obama and Hillary Clinton are calling for.

The rifles they want to take from us are precisely those most protected by the Constitution. Rifles that are the most useful for spontaneous citizen militias, as expected by the Second Amendment.

They are the type of firearm that is least used to murder.  Twice as many people are killed with hands and feet as are killed with rifles in the United States.   Of all the murders in the United States, only 2% are committed with rifles.  Sport utility rifles, that the President and the Democrat nominee want to ban, are only a fraction of those.  They are about 10-20 percent of the rifles in the country, and are increasing in popularity daily.

Sport utility rifles are the most popular rifles in the last 10 years.  They are selling like Ice Cream on a hot August day in Florida.  They are semi-automatics, similar to rifles that have been sold for a hundred years. They are the rifles that the present administration and Democrat candidate want to take from you.

It is time to fight; not with rifles but with words.  I pray that we never have to fight with the rifles.  It is far better if we win with words. We have the facts, the culture, and the Constitution on our side.  We are winning this fight, but we have to fight if we are going to win.  Similar to the horror attack in Orlando, if we do not fight back we lose.

You can and must join the fight.  See an article that claims that guns are not useful for self defense?  Make a comment.  There are plenty of facts available on the Internet for you to use.  Hear that your Congresscritter is waffling? Let them know that you will not tolerate it.

Be polite; it empowers your words more than cussing or other angry rhetoric.   See that an entertainer or commercial enterprise has bowed down to political correctness and the two minute hate of Second Amendment supporters?  Let them know that you will not support them.  Be polite.  It is a force multiplier.

Use sarcasm, cartoons, humor, and satire.  Our opponents need to be laughed at.

Use social media to spread the truth.  Do not let the disarmists take over the means of communication, as they have in the past.

Yes, it is a tough fight.  Yes, our adversaries have money, power, the major media, and the power of fraud and lies.

We can beat them.  We have done it before.  But, we will not beat them if we do not fight!

    The President jumped on Air Force One today and headed to Orlando to show his sorrow for the tragedy. I understand that a portion of those killed were not in this country legally. He doesn’t bother if an American passes away or a Military person is brought back in a body bag. Then to slap us on the face he wants to take our guns away so we can not defend ourselves against the savages that come here, with a free pass, to shoot us up. What’s up with all this a**backward thinking? There is a story in there and… Read more »

    I feel the the fbi has failed. This is the presidents fault correct? If the laws in are country are in forced this would not happen. Now the left says we need to do something about guns and ban ar style rifles. Well, guess what, America has armed itself already and we are ready to fight the fight against terror. What would happen if they try to take those guns from us. They want us to not have them.? What is wrong with them? We will defend Their rights and use them if need be. The government has failed, so… Read more »

    https://act.nraila.org/composeletters.aspx?AlertID=261 The above link, is for a letter to our representatives to not allow the passage of any ‘anti-gun” bills in light of the Terror attack in Orlando. The real person guilty for these attacks is our President. He is the one that opened our borders with open arms for his Islamic friends to come and try to make America another Islamic State. This is what they do. They have attacks to make the people hate guns but the real reason behind it is then they will try to disarm Americans so they face no armed opposition and can do… Read more »

    The AR does not stand for Automatic Rifle, Assault Rifle or other possible AR derivative. A man named Gene Stoner invented the design while he was employed by the Fairchild Aerospace Corp. Fairchild formed teh Armalite Corp to manufacture the M16 rifle for the ARMY. But Colt got the big contract. Colt was the sole provider during the early days of the Vietnam Wat. Colt named the semi-auto only version of the M16 the AT 15. The rifle was not terribly accurate or reliable and millions of dollars were spent on improvements in manufacturing technology. Accuracy and reliability has improved.… Read more »

    Might I recommend classicfirearms.com? They have a NICE entry level (flat top, 1:7 twist) for just under $500 at the moment. No fancy engraving, but I can attest, as a repeat customer, that their guns go bang when required.

    If the price holds, I am seriously considering getting AR #2 from them in about a week … I’ve been loading 75 grain Hornady HPBTM bullets and they want at least a 1:9 … and a 1:7 would be just about as tight a twist as you can find commercially.

    Once again, a so-called “Gun Free Zone” has ONLY served to protect the Islamic Terrorist shooter. The law abiding American citizens in the club had no means of protection. TO terrorists, “GUN FREE” means its a FREE FIRE LOCATION with no danger of one of the targets being able to return fire. Then immediately we get the muslim president and the shrill hag dancing in the blood demanding more laws to DISARM the innocent citizens, they are rapidly joined by the other dimorats or is it Dimocraps demanding that ALL Americans be disarmed and the everybody have their AR (ARMALITE… Read more »

    Those howling the loudest right now are the very ones who depend on fear, uncertainty, doubt, racism, suspicion, et al., ad nauseam. Finding their political rhetoric in shambles, they now import tens of thousands of able bodied men from terrorist nations and filibuster for more limits on personal self defense. This caterwauling is nothing more than theater. The outcome is predictable. Millions will shop this weekend for the firearms they know the democrats hope to restrict and then confiscate. If you already hate democrats, you’ll soon hate ’em more.

    As horrible as what happened in Orlando is, I the I have yet to see a posting from any of us that support our constitutional right, wondering what would have happened if any one at the club had a gun? Bad persons, deranged persons, terrorists or any other type of scum with a gun can only be stopped by 1 or more good persons with a gun!

    First don’t get caught. Most people get caught because they can’t keep their mouth shut or some disgruntled wife or girl friend rats them out. Every level of government law enforcement agency developed a network of paid informants (often called Cooperating Individuals, snitches, etc). So again keep your mouth shut. I live way out in the country. What ever the govt does will happen in the big cities first. So get out of the city. I have the advantage of seeing what happens then act accordingly.

    Well you can do one of two things…
    Give it up or get it up

    If you have your gun because the government says yes or no then you don’t have anything to begin with, if you only knew what was contained for you in the new world order you’d give em the finger and go from there….

    Let’s really get serious for a second. What will you really do it they were to outlaw all higher capacity magazines and even maybe the AR? You have one at your house along with a batch of magazines and NOW if you are caught with it you have real legal problems? What are you really going to do when officer Bob stops you and you have the thing in your car or whatever. Love to hear a few ideas.

    With 8 million ARs and AKs in civilian hands I don’t think there is any police force or army unit who will try to take them away.In fact most of the police and military are on our side.

    The cops I’ve spoken to think the idea of going door to door collecting firearms … or even trying to raid individual homes in the middle of the night … is nothing more than a suicide mission and, you know what? It is. They think the whole proposition is preposterous and laughable. As a member of my local community watch, I have regular contact with most of the local officers. They know what they are being trained to do and, since its a paycheck and the skills might come in useful someday, they go along. But they aren’t buying the… Read more »

    Skip the dictionary and go right to Congress! Anti-gun members of Congress are using the tragedy in Orlando as a political chess piece to move their personal anti-gun agenda. This is the easiest way to take action. https://act.nraila.org/composeletters.aspx?AlertID=261 Force Congress to have some spine on our part.

    If he can read an article in English, he can reply in English. If he translates it to read it, he can translate it back to reply to it. I tried a google translation of his post, and the page displayed said it was an illegal statement and/or request.
    If he wants us to know his opinion, he needs to write it in English.

    Jim,

    Good post. The only point I would make is that the Founding fathers were not “fearful of a Select Militia” Instead, I believe they were distrustful of a Select Militia and for good reason.
