Pres. Trump & GOP Must Not Buckle To Press & Dems Looking to Destroy Second Amendment

New York – -(AmmoLand.com)-

“Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.” ~ George Orwell, writer and essayist, from his novel on a Dystopian society, 1984

Engaging in compromise with those who abhor firearms and who detest those who choose to exercise their sacred right to keep and bear arms will serve only to compromise that right, destroying the Second Amendment.

The American citizenry are a free, powerful, sovereign people living in a free Constitutional Republic; a Nation that belongs to the entire citizenry, not to a select few individuals among the citizenry; and definitely not to the Government, an entity created to serve the citizenry, not to subjugate and oppress it. The words codified in the Second Amendment make this fundamental truth plain. The exercise of the right of the people to keep and bear arms make this truth a reality. The New Progressive Left seeks to erase the words of the Second Amendment from the Constitution.

If these radical Left-wing elements succeed in compromising the Nation by undercutting the Constitution, then the American people, like the populations of the EU, will face unending misery; misery manifesting in the suppression of basic freedoms, constant surveillance, control over thought and conduct, and penury; a sad, oppressive life, nay, something less than life: mere existence—in a new political, social, economic, and cultural construct; one that has erased the independence and sovereignty of our Nation and of all Western nation-states; destroying, as well, the constitutions, laws, and jurisprudence of all nation-states.

But to accomplish their goal, the New Progressive Left in our Country must indoctrinate our children, and reeducate those adults who aren’t so easily susceptible to prolific proselytizing and propagandizing; those adults who are not so willing to accept the fiction that our fundamental rights and liberties aren’t rights at all and never had been, but are merely man-made constructs, mere privileges, bestowed on the American people by grace of Government and by that same authority of Government would those same privileges be rescinded.

If the public believes the fiction—if, in fact, the public believes that fundamental, immutable, inalienable rights are not, at all, rights preexistent in man, bestowed on man by a loving Divine Creator, but are mere privileges, vouchsafe granted by Government to men—then these Marxists, Socialists, and Communists, will find it much easier to weaken and ultimately negate the one right that alone serves as the means of preventing subjugation of the American citizenry, and it is that one, fundamental right that most concerns them: the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

The problem for those of us who seek to preserve and strengthen our sacred right of the people to keep and bear arms is found less in the Radical Left or New Progressive Left elements now controlling the seditious Press and who have insinuated themselves in and are now legion in the Democratic Party but:

The growing possibility is that the U.S. President and Congressional Republicans might actually consider negotiating with the Democrats and in so doing, weaken rather than preserve and strengthen the right of the people to keep and bear arms.

What we must do is to make plain to both the U.S. President and to Congressional Republicans that they must not capitulate. We must make clear to President Trump and to Congressional Republicans that to cave in to Democrat demands for “muscular new gun control proposals,”—that Progressive Left Democrat Candidates for U.S. President, Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren, are calling for, as reported by The New York Times, on September 3, 2019, in an article titled, “Demanding Gun Control, but Differing on Tactics,”—is not the way to deal with these gun grabbers.

Our Nation already has more than enough restrictive gun laws. We don’t need more; for more gun laws will not make this nation safer. More gun laws will make this nation less safe. The gun control proposals of Democratic Party candidates target the millions of average, law-abiding gun owners, not the common criminal, the vicious drug cartels, or the occasional lunatic. We know that, and Democrats know that too. These “muscular new gun control measures” various Democratic Party candidates for U.S. President are calling for are directed squarely at the millions of law-abiding gun owners, not common criminals, not psychopathic gang members, not psychotic lunatics, all of whom are not permitted to own and possess firearms under current federal law—federal law that in many instances isn’t enforced. And this indisputable truth compels one unmistakable, disturbing conclusion: That further gun control laws the New Progressive Left Democratic Presidential candidates are vociferously and blatantly arguing for are not directed to reducing gun violence; nor, for that matter, are they directed toward the reduction of violence of any kind. The appeal for more restrictive gun measures is a makeweight, a platitude, for on close inspection, the logic behind the appeal falls apart, and one realizes the scam for what it is and that those demanding comprehensive gun control are really calling for comprehensive population control.

President Trump and Republicans must not be hesitant in calling these Democrats out.

They should ask the question directly, first of themselves and then of the radical Left Democrats: What is the goal of the New Progressive Left Congressional Democrats in calling for gun control? Is their goal to reduce societal violence, or is it to disarm the American citizenry? Congressional legislation is a function of the matter to be addressed, and that is where attention ought to be focused. Taking Democrats at their word, if, then, Democrats truly desire to curtail violence in society, thereby promoting public safety, attention should be directed to answering that question, but attention is never directed to that question; not really, for that is not what Democrats want. That is not what they are after. What they seek is comprehensive citizen disarmament, and withal, removing the incipient threat to the unconstitutional usurpation of Government power and authority. In so doing, the New Progressive Left turns the paramount concern of the founders of our free Republic, on its head.

For an armed citizenry was precisely what the founders prescribed; for their aim was to deter the rise of tyranny, not enable it.

The Press, echoing the demands of Democratic Party Presidential Candidates, with whom the Press is in league, pretends to be interested in promoting public safety, failing to realize or even to consider that an armed citizenry is the best defense against armed assailants. The goal of the Progressive New Left isn’t really public safety at all. If it were, attention would be directed to incarcerating serial criminals in prison where they belong; placing the criminally insane in institutions where they can receive the care they need and the public can be spared the danger the criminally insane pose; and deporting illegal aliens who commit the serious crimes of rape, armed robbery, assault, and murder, instead of releasing them out into the public where they can commit crimes anew.

But, many Democrats, including their leaders, aren’t concerned about any of that. If they were, then they would spend more time campaigning for toughened sentencing against hardened criminals, and institutionalizing dangerous psychotics who have demonstrated a predilection for violence, and deporting illegal aliens who have demonstrated a proclivity toward violence. But we see none of that happening. We see; instead, Democrats spending much of their time campaigning for more restrictive gun laws, directed to the law-abiding citizen, which, if enacted, would have the perverse result of leaving the law-abiding citizen defenseless. The need for further restrictive gun laws is, then, again, just a ruse—all directed to one ultimate goal: de facto repeal of the Second Amendment, after which the amassing of Government power can take off, unconfined by the limitations imposed on Government in the first three Articles of the U.S. Constitution, and undeterred by, and no longer concerned with the threat an armed citizenry poses to Government's usurpation of power, which the New Progressive Left has sought all along.

No longer would the need exist for the Government tyrants to go through the motions of complying with the Constitution, for the means to compel Government compliance with the limitations the Constitution imposes on Government, an armed citizenry, would no longer exist.

Excellent article! What are the options the liberals have if they don’t get the gun restrictions/confiscation laws enacted? Nothing, nada, zip, zero, zilch! Call out Antifa and take to the streets and protest? That’s pretty much laughable as it would be restricted to the “big cities and populations centers of the states and would be as effective as a fart in a whirlwind. What are the alternatives that the pro-2nd Amendment, pro-Constitutional citizens have if the laws/restrictions are passed? Something the liberals either don’t consider or try to ignore if they ever have a lucid moment, and that is “blood”.… Read more »

I agree wholeheartedly with this write up. However, it’s a moot point if the Democrats ever regain power and considering the way they cheat, they most definitely will. Every “caravan migrant” who succeeds in crossing the border illegally is a new potential Democrat voter.

We need a voter ID which is impossible to hack or at least very difficult to hack in large numbers. We need it now. If we don’t get that, kiss your guns and all of your cherished freedoms goodbye.

My humble 2 cents

Your best bet is still over turn each and every anti-gun law ever made in this country get rid of the gun control act get rid of the NFA and get rid of the ATF in regards to private citizenship owning firearms. the ATF actually does have a lot of good qualities about them but it needs to be sorted out and mandated properly. If repealing all of those BS gun control laws that don’t work never have saved a life never will save a life and it’s obvious we have a bunch of dumbasses that are representing us and… Read more »

What the repubs need to do, on this “more so called gun control” power grab, is have Trump propose something. Almost anything. The dems will be against it, and they will howl. Then let the howlers win! Everyone blames the dems. No additional people control. Good to go.

I encourage people to engage in the discussion and help look for solutions which address the causes of the problem or will help prevent these mass shootings. The gun-grabbers blame guns, of course. Take away the guns and mass shootings will stop. Right enough, if nobody has guns nobody will be shot. But that won’t stop mass murder or street crime.

The tools are already in place. If the appropriate steps are taken within the mental health system then those not mentally stable will be adjudicated and in the system. This doesn’t always happen because a lot of mental health professionals are either overworked or too lazy to do the right thing. They juice up their patients on mood altering drugs, prescribe drugs that most people can’t even pronounce and send these folks back out in to society trusting that they will continue to take their meds. If criminals don’t get guns they will use something else as a weapon. restricting… Read more »

@Jeff, Try to take away the guns and the mass shootings will just begin. There will never be a condition in the US where nobody has guns. First, arms and papers are the only named protected property in the whole Constitution. Second, I could make a firearm in my shop. Most people could make a fire arm in their garage. You fail to define “… the problem …” There are fewer and fewer unlawful shootings every year, that is no problem Perhaps you are referring to the lying msm’s fake reporting. Why not just return to what we know works?… Read more »

@ Wild Bill When they are in recess they don’t cause any problems. When they are in session they waste time and money and still don’t accomplish anything. Long term recess would be much better for us.

There are three basic types of people. The evil people who are inherently evil and want their way at any cost. Next, the warriors. Those who stand for what is just and right and rarely waver. Lastly, the lemmings. Those who don’t research their thoughts before forming opinions. They are pushed around by evil bullies. They refuse to think for themselves. They would rather get along and be part of evil just so they fit in. We are at a point where the warriors must stand against evil! They must show the lemmings that evil will produce destruction for them… Read more »

“The Spirit of resistance is with the People. Let them take arms!”
That is how Americans USED to talk.
The American People are the ultimate Power & Authority in our REPUBLIC.
The American People have the Constitutional Right & Duty to remove the anti-American politicians and protect themselves and their country..

The Founding Fathers gave us a free America. Americans, today, are courting communism.
Only blood will remedy this predicament. For Freedom will accept nothing less than blood as payment.

Obviously, you are not a student of history, nor have you read the Federalist Papers.
The Founding Fathers, knowing that tyrants ALWAYS seize power, must be removed, by force if necessary. Those attempting to deny right to bear arms would be shot on sight. See April 19, 1775. When the government told the Patriots to turn in their arms, the Patriots SHOT them. The majority of COWARDLY Americans today, will kneel and turn in their arms. People MUST use force to remain free. Tyrants do not respect anything except force.

@Will, The founders also had the advantages of secure communications, less dependency on the system, less surveillance on the population. Far fewer police. Today is a knottier problem

@Will, The list of usurpations is so incremental and from so many sources that the founders could have been confused. Things were clearer then.

Its only a compromise if the gun rights side gets something that we never had before.

This has NEVER happened. Its always the law abiding gun owner that loses more of our RIGHTS. ENOUGH already!

I’ve never noticed ANY GOP pol. that makes his primary forum the 2nd Amend. Does anybody know of one? GOP is as bad as dummycrates and the presstitutes, not by the vocal triads about the 2nd Amend but by their silence. How about a little fight back against America’s enemies!! If you don’t there will be a CW II and all pols will suffer defeat!

@AH, well, Trump does not know much about firearms, the Second Amendment, or the Federalist papers. He has never read the Federalist papers, the Second Amendment, or the operating instructions that come with a new firearm purchase. Trump does not know that the only objects specifically protected by our Constitution are arms. If we educate him, diplomatically, then maybe he will take a stand.
