New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Antigun zealots and other Leftist extremists, and radical Groups, along with the Billionaire Internationalist Class of Overseers who fund them, consider the holding and exhibiting of positive thoughts toward firearms to be outworn and outdated; altogether unfashionable; aberrational; even primeval.

And, as they seek to control the thoughts and actions, and word and deed, of average Americans, we see, at once, these anti-gun zealots, and Leftists of all stripes and the billionaire Globalists exhibiting a marked reluctance toward castigating the criminal, sociopathic element in our society for their conduct, in whom reprehensible, aberrational behavior truly resides. This is all according to plan.

As for this criminal element of society, antigun zealots, and other Leftists, tell us that society is itself to blame for the aberrant behavior of criminals and of the criminally insane. It is all nonsense.

But, the incessant repetitious drone has a nascent effect on some. Thus, the cry goes out to “liberate” the criminal and the lunatic from the institutional setting, even as law-abiding citizens are placed more at risk for their life, safety and well-being in the implementation of such policy. It is they–average law-abiding, rational Americans–who, strangely, find themselves shackled, psychologically for daring to harbor impure thoughts toward gun ownership and possession; all the more so in the event, they dare to exercise their Second Amendment right. If they could, anti-gun zealots, and others of the radical Left would lock up millions of law-abiding gun owners, to reeducate them. Alas, they cannot, at least for the moment. Once they come into power, who knows?

American gun owners extoll the virtues of individual responsibility, autonomy, self-reliance, and self-resilience.

These virtues are reflected in the desire to keep and bear arms, as is their unalienable right. But these virtues are inconsistent with Government control over the commonalty. Bizarrely, we see attempts to control thought by controlling the use of language. Nothing is sacred. Leftists seek to revise how Americans view their fundamental rights and liberties. Indeed, everything—our history, traditions, core values—now demands revisiting for these Collectivists.

The existence of enumerated, fundamental, unalienable rights and liberties, intrinsic in each American citizen, guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution, presents a formidable problem, a true conundrum for those who ascribe to Collectivism–the harbingers of a one world government. They cannot control a citizenry that has access to guns. That is the insistent, irrefutable truth, and it poses a challenging, significant if not insurmountable hurdle for them.

The Bill of Rights mandates freedom from Governmental restraint. Guns in the hands of the American citizenry guarantees freedom from Governmental restraint. The radical Left can have none of it. But, then, how do Antigun zealots go about separating the American people from their firearms?

From a legislative standpoint, Antigun politicians must use a different tack against those of us who exalt the fundamental rights and liberties cherished by the founders of our Free Republic. Antigun politicians cannot change the attitudes of those Americans steeped in an understanding of and deep abiding love and adoration for our unique Constitution and our Bill of Rights. They have tried. They argue, dubiously, that some gun owners see the value of “gun control” and “gun licensing” measures and schemes.

But, is that true? And, if it is true, does that mean we all must follow suit? Does that mean “gun owners” who have capitulated are right, and the rest of us are wrong? No!

Antigun proponents cannot sway those Americans who visualize a Government of limited authority. Antigun proponents cannot sway those Americans who understand that ultimate authority resides in the people, not in Government; that Government growth must be contained and constrained; that the tendency toward accumulation of Governmental power should be resisted; attenuated; that fundamental rights and liberties, codified in the Bill of Rights, must be preserved and strengthened, at all costs, not weakened, restricted, ignored, or abrogated.

Most Americans understand that natural rights—such as the right of Free Speech and Association, the right to be free from Unreasonable Searches and Seizures, and the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms—exist intrinsically in the American citizen; that a loving, all-powerful, and omniscient, and benevolent Creator bestowed these rights on us; in us. No man, nor Government entity created these natural rights. So no man, nor any Government can deny the American citizen of these fundamental, unalienable, enumerated rights. For those of us who ascribe to the precepts of Individualism, these sacred, fundamental rights and liberties are not mere statutes. They represent the highest form of moral law—codifications etched in stone in our Constitution; never to be amended, repealed, ignored, or abrogated.

Again, since the Government did not bequeath these natural, primary rights to man, the Government cannot lawfully take those rights from man.

The Arbalest Quarrel has written extensively on this. See, for example, our article, posted April 2017, titled, “Does The Second Amendment Codify Natural Law?

Leftist politicians and those in the polity who espouse an alien ideology understand if only reluctantly, they cannot erase centuries of traditional American values and teaching. They cannot lawfully abrogate the Bill of Rights. So, they use the force of Government, unethically, even illegally, to thrust their will on those who stubbornly hold to their natural rights and liberties, and who refuse to yield to a new belief system—one requiring the forsaking of such rights and liberties.

    1. No gun ownership won’t be going anywhere. Gun control failures abound throughout the USA.
      Recent abysmal failure of the state of Vermont’s Bump Stock Amnesty, two were turned in.
      New York State SAFE ACT is a failure.
      Connecticut gun registration plan failure, netting a pitiful 15% compliance rate among the state’s “assault weapon” owners.
      California managed a whole 3% compliance with their latest assault weapons registration plan involving “bullet button assault weapons” failure.

    2. all AMERICANS should be ashamed to allow the govt. to regulate their guns in any way. the 2ND was put there to absolutely prevent this. i say start in califirnia to reclaim our rights!

    3. President Trump fire Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer, and Diane Feinstein now! And no federal pension for these anti- Bill of Rights communists! Fight and stop Bloomberg, Soros, the evil U.N., and the foreign governments funding the gun banning cults and hunting banning cults! Background checks = gun registration = gun confiscation = you locked up forever in a New World Order gun control concentration camp!

    4. Every day, gun ownership is attacked by local, state and national governments as well as individuals and private organizations. The media supports and promotes these attacks with their lies and propaganda. The goal of course, is the elimination of private gun ownership so the liberals and their government can “rule” the country without opposition. They are succeeding more and more every day. Playing along with the system (voting, signing ballots, attending public meetings, protesting) isn’t working. Even Ghandi, the supreme pacifist, stated, “It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence”.

    5. About tube amps being fragile. I had an Ampeg V4 guitar amp my dad bought me in 1972. It had magnavox tubes in it. I sold it in 2015 with those same tubes and this amp toured the USA all those years and was played every weekend and usually two or three times a week when I practiced. I still have gear from the late 50’s and 60’s that I use today and has outlasted many of my friends equipnent that always stay current and up to date. Why do you say. Maybe because it says “Made in U.S.A.”

    6. Kenneth. That reminds me of when the Brian Wilson classic ‘Pet Sounds’ was digitally remastered. They hand sinced all the original tapes onto digital media then remixed in down on an old tube console at Westearn Recorders in LA. Quite apropos, if I might say, and just a glorious sound!

    7. “Most Americans understand that natural rights—such as the right of Free Speech and Association, the right to be free from Unreasonable Searches and Seizures, and the Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms—exist intrinsically in the American citizen; that a loving, all-powerful, and omniscient, and benevolent Creator bestowed these rights on us; in us.”

      I’d say that our rights exist intrinsically in ALL humans, regardless of what their respective governments say. I’d also say that they come from our very humanity, as opposed to any benevolent Creator. That said, the rest of this article is spot on.

    8. Kenneth, you are definitely correct about buggies. There is a vibrant Amish Community not far from where I live, and buggies are the mode of travel for them. I will assume that CRT manufacturers are still in business today, as are the manufacturers of vinyl records. Can’t say anything about corsets, though. Don’t know. But, you bring up fond memories of my own high end audio equipment. I was a devotee, for many years, as I see that you are. I subscribed to “The Absolute Sound,” long before the publishers accepted advertising. Prices for high end equipment was still fairly reasonable, too, back in the 1970s. Purchased my Pre-Amp and Power Amp from a small Company out in California, called, “Threshold.” Military Grade components. And, my speakers came from Arkansas: Klipsch, “Cornwalls.” What a system! Klipsch, I think, is still around. Threshold and many other small American Companies that manufactured excellent products have disappeared. Sad. Will that happen to manufacturers of firearms, too? Will the only firearms that are available in the coming decades be those one can only obtain on the Black Market; poorly designed, engineered, and fabricated, emanating from Third World Countries? If that ever happens, this Nation, as conceived by our Founders, will have ceased to exist.

    9. I’d like to point out that there are still many buggies, corsets, and CRT manufacturers today. The Amish buy buggies by the hundreds, corsets are in every lingerie shop in the western world, and no self-respecting professional guitar player would use anything but a tube amp, unless they just couldn’t afford one based on valves. Tubes just make better sound. Granted they are more expensive, more fragile, consume much more power, need warm up time, etc. They have disadvantages that made solid state amps the natural choice for beginners, but once one has developed a musical ear, the sound of a solid state amp just doesn’t cut the mustard.

      1. I still design and build custom pro audio processing circuits utilizing Vacuum Tubes. When the younger generation hears some of the old systems versus the present way of recording and listening to audio, it is rather amusing to see the deer in the headlight syndrome on their faces. Then the questions and discussions begin. Talk about re-education.

        “Shall Not Be Infringed”
        “Seemingly Utopian pacifists are free to profess their love of a weapon-free world, but they must start by disarming the evil, criminal and tyrannical. Disarming the public is a vent for their twisted fear and hatred, a grotesque affront to freedom, and unacceptable. Disarming an innocent person is an act of violence.”

        “Guns save lives. Guns stop crime. Guns are why America is still free.”

        Anti-constitutionalism sense of morality is situational, based on incident and emotion, instead of rooted in
        God’s word and law.
        Anti-constitutionalism stands for nothing. The Anti-Constitutionalists’ situation determines their support for an issue and their emotions rule, not reason and rationality.
        Moreover, they recognize the contradiction, but still cling to their situational justice. Situational justice is the tool of dictators, tyrants, despots, and unjust, unrighteous monarchs. It has no place in a free constitutional republic. In which the United States of America is……………….

        1. Our Constitution rests upon a four-leg stool. Its legs are:
          1. Separation of power,
          2. Balance of power,
          3. Limits of power, and
          4. Accountability to the people they represent.
          Saw off one leg and the platform is unstable. Saw off another and it falls to the floor sideways and dumps the Condtitution on the floor. Saw off all legs and the seat rests on the floor, not where it should be.
