USA – -(Ammoland.com)- The problem with freedom is that it requires constant guarding. If we practice Freedom with abandon and freely choose pleasant comfortable activities other than guarding freedom, it can easily be taken away from us as we watch.

If we lower our guard and trust people who swear to protect our Constitution, who also like to be in charge, we are being very foolish and our children will not know freedom in the future. If we cannot or will not govern ourselves, someone else will be very happy to do it for us.

That’s what’s happening here in America, right before our eyes. Our country is filled with would-be tyrants who are filled with hate for us and our country because we are making it tough for them to rule. We may be able to keep them in check, but they have wormed their way into the fabric of our government, courts, and education systems. There is no room for compromise with them, as the word ‘compromise’ is a dirty word to tyrants.

If we lose this battle, the new sovereign will teach us all about obedience. The sovereign will not care about us or our families. We will become guilty of disloyalty at the discretion of the sovereign, and we will be their enemy to be casually removed from their society.

We are giving away our First Amendment too easily because of fear of their retaliation, and so our Second Amendment is more important than ever before. Whatever fear citizens have of civilian possession of weapons, of accidents, or of maniacs, it’s time to chuck those fears out. An excellent new article by Dave Kopel, about to be published (you can get a sneak peek here), shows that all the warnings about the danger of weapons in the home pale before the concept of weapons held by governments.

Kopel shows that governments have immense power to kill civilians, so if we give up our weapons we give government agents a cost-free invitation to act as they please. Most gun laws prepare the way for disarmament, and we sadly, mostly obey them.

Do we love our Freedom enough to do everything we must to keep it? Perhaps we should re-phrase the question. “Do we fear losing Freedom enough to do everything we must to keep it?”

Canada Is A Perfect Example.

What just happened in Canada? What we observed was an unexpected, hopefully temporary, shift from freedom to tyranny. Time will tell.

In Canada, as elsewhere, the disagreement among healers as to whether the COVID 19 shot is effective and/or potentially dangerous, caused citizens to distrust the government mandates. These suspicions were further raised because many Governments, liberal Media, and Big Tech all colluded to silence the concerned medical scientists, amid rumors of medical corruption and mismanagement.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a shocking interview in which he told his truth. Everyone who opposed his vax mandates were racists, extremists, and science-denying misogynists. They “are taking up space, and here we have to make a choice, as a leader, as a country.” Should Canada “tolerate these people?

That sounds just a bit threatening, doesn’t it? It sounds full of hate, just like U.S. Democrats sound when they talk about their Republican rivals. Why do today’s U.S. Socialists threaten to kill and harm their rivals? Why do they speak as if their political opponents have short memories, and why do they act as if their victims are down for the count, never to rise up again?

As the months passed in Canada with continued vax mandate threats, concerned Canadian truckers protested the mandates by quitting work and parking their trucks in Ottawa. The stronger the truckers’ resistance, the more resolved PM Justin Trudeau became to win the dispute. Using Canada’s 1988 Emergencies Act, Trudeau went after the truckers with the heavy hand of government.

What was so dangerous about the dissent of the truckers? Steven McGuire, Director of the Matthew J. Ryan Center at Villanova University, commented that Trudeau is “acting as if they’re an existential threat to the country”.

Should Americans be concerned with Trudeau’s vicious response to the Canadian Truckers, as according to a poll from Trafalgar Group, 65% of likely U.S. Democrat voters approved of Trudeau’s actions? Our own homegrown socialist Democrats, who have repeatedly demonstrated that they have no respect for the lives of American citizens, agree with Trudeau.

Where does all this hate come from? Professor Philip Zimbardo is famous for an experiment in which he used college students to play incarcerated criminals and their guards for 2 weeks. He asked “What would happen when you place good people in an evil place?” The experiment went shockingly wrong and was ended at 6 days because the ‘guards’ had reverted to sadism, and the ‘prisoners’ had become depressed. See The Stanford Prison Experiment film trailer.

Enough About Tyrants. What About The Guns?

We are watching the reality of human behavior play out in Canada, whose government, just like ours, does not feel comfortable with civilian gun ownership. Yes, Canadians still own (some) guns and they still have not tipped completely over into tyranny.

There are two major areas of concern for Americans. The first step towards civilian disarmament is to know where the guns are. Our government has Form 4473, and they previously attempted to create lists of gun owners, and they still are. In fact, a most recent attempt is Baden’s collection of 55 million gun owner records. Lists are an easy way to confiscation.

Dave Kopel, in Guns Kill People, and Tyrants with Gun Monopolies Kill the Most, explains that “gun control programs create central registration lists, which facilitate gun confiscation by tyrants and genocidaires.”

A further example of lists is Canada’s system of gun owner licensing and firearms registration, which intensified in the 1990s because of fear of violent crime, puts the Canadian government way ahead of ours By November of 2003, Professor Gary Mauser would comment that as far as reducing violent crime was concerned “The Canadian experiment with firearm regulation is moving to farce.

He was right. Gun regulation and lists of gun owners don’t control crime, but they do control legal gun owners.

What Of Self-Defense?

The most crucial aspect of civilian gun ownership is the right to self-defense. If your weapon had no other use but target shooting, it might at some point kill or maim a person. Every neighbor around you would correctly vote to take it from you. But guns save lives too, and that changes everything.

Is the concept of self-defense present and active here in America? Anyone who views the tapes of Kyle Rittenhouse defending himself could make the easy decision that his life was in danger when he used his weapon to kill, just as his jury found. The fact that Kyle was mistreated, jailed, and tried for murder teaches us that, depending on the jurisdiction and the political view of the prosecutors, many Americans in government do not want citizens to keep that Right.

They want to frighten it right out of our behavior pattern. And they are nasty about it.

On this issue, Canada is way ahead of America. They are on the cusp of losing self-defense. Canadians must keep their guns unloaded and locked away safely. So safely that the guns are not available for self-defense.

The case of Peter Khill, who loaded his shotgun after he was awakened at 3 AM on February 4, 2016, told the jury he fired in self-defense when he killed Jon Styres, a 29-year-old indigenous person, shows us where Canada is going, and where America is trying to go. Khill was found not guilty in June 2018. Oops, let us re-phrase that. A white man with a gun killed a POC in self-defense and is going free. Khill loaded his weapon before he knew he was in danger! So the Crown appealed the jury’s self-defense decision and the Ontario Court of Appeal unanimously overturned it, ordering a new trial. Supreme Court of Canada will hear an appeal in the case of Peter Khill.

We do not know how this will end; only time will tell.

And This Is Important Because?

Dave Kopel reminds us that tyrants can appear without much notice, even in Canada, or even in America. He asks, “Is there some sort of permanent immunity from domestic dictatorship in highly developed nations…?”

Can tyranny happen here? Can hate happen here? Are our gun-owning neighbors more dangerous than our weapons-owning government?

Kopel shows us, “Tyrants with gun monopolies kill the most.” The key take-away point of Kopel’s forthcoming article is that when he compares the murders of rogue governments to the total number of gun deaths from accidents and from criminal gangs and individuals during the Twentieth Century there is a little known conclusion.

When it comes to civilian deaths, Governments are the main culprits many times over. And an armed populace is a strong deterrent.

Kopel explains, “The very strong deterrent effect of armed victims is demonstrated by the consistent behavior of tyrants waiting to start mass murder until the victims have been disarmed.”

Looking at the big picture, civilians with guns are safer than those who are unarmed. This point must be discussed before Media fear-mongers and elected leaders call for stronger laws after the next school massacre, because they give only part of the story. Children who live in homes with guns are statistically way safer than children whose parents are not armed.

Here in the U.S., there is a strong pro-Second Amendment attitude, especially of late, that can be seen in the resurgence of Constitutional Carry. It is a safe behavior that carries a warning. Compare that with the dangerous fury of angry, disturbed people who literally will stop at nothing to win and to keep their power.

Kopel’s reasoning slashes away the fears anyone might retain about the evils of civilian gun ownership. It eliminates the possibilities of dangerousness of civilian-owned weapons. It dissolves all reasons to give up guns because all that does is make government more powerful.

Yes, governments, including many critters in America, prefer unarmed folks. Though SUBJECTS would be a better word than FOLKS.

The liberals and democrats talk about a civil war. They would love citizens fighting each other. If an uprising would occur it would not be a civil war but a revolution, citizens against the government. They may get an uprising but not one to their liking.

The government will continue to abuse its power so long as we the People allow it. Time to put them back in their lane.

Well let them try , we have history here on American soil that shows how that worked out for the Britts . Let’s get it on and turn American cities to rubble and get the fight started and see who survives . Spineless politicians will hide behind armed security and throw Patriots to the military wolves to fight it out in the streets . Mass bloodshed will follow and tyrants will blame the slaves for not surrendering thier rights and freedoms to the establishment ! FJB and the rest of the tyrants in governments around the world !

“A well regulated militia, being necessary to a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” The second amendment, THE law of the land. First, our rights are given to mankind from the LORD, the right to keep and bear arms is one of these inalienable rights, The right to keep and bear arms is also written into constitutional law, that’s LAW —- not a mandate or proposal or presidential or congressional or atfe whim, as the second amendment as written above. The second amendment also specifically states the government’s legal authority… Read more »

Yet when it came to a federal show of trumped up charges as cover for disarmament, resulting in nearly 100 men, women & children burned alive, ex-prosecutor Kopel presumed the Branch Davidians guilty of child abuse, without trial, smearing the defenseless dead.

“The public need to remember how determined pure evil can be. Consider the lessons taught by the followers of another evil man: David Koresh.”

“Part of what went wrong at Waco was a failure to understand that people devoted to evil will behave differently from ordinary criminals and thugs.”

“their strange religious beliefs”

“Didn’t matter that the Branch Davidian religion was a false religion. Didn’t matter whether Koresh himself was sincere (revising religious doctrine to expand his sexual access).”

“Like the deluded Davidians expecting their perfect mate in Heaven, bin Laden terrorists look forward to 72 black-eyed virgins.”

It is important to recognize how determined pure evil can be, for they were happy to burn men, women and children to death for exercising their religious freedom and associating with whom they chose.

Judge jury and executioner is a phrase indelibly linked to evil, tyranny and megalomania. Also fits batfe and their leadership. Exactly what our constitution was designed to forestall.

part of the “great experiment” was for people to worship as the chose, the Mormons were attacked right away so much for tolerance

So Canada’s we the people decided he was defending himself and found him not guilty and then the government stepped in and said, hey, no way, you got it wrong and we are here to change your decision. Can or will that happen in America? Trudeau’s decision to make the truckers into terrorists in order to stop the freedom of Canadians speech was backed and approved by butt buddy Joe kamalatoe obiden but obiden played it different because our government believes that we would handle it different than the Canadian people. That is why they have blocked off our white… Read more »

cant have people defending themselves ,and having rights they are subjects after all (slaves to you too)

Finnky

At first blush one would say no. One cannot face double jeopardy- once found ‘not guilty’ one cannot legally be charged again for same act. However, as usual, fed seized power by punching holes in firewall of rights. If acquitted under state or local laws you cannot (now) be recharged by state or local, but you may still be subjected to federal charges. i remember reading claims that fed-DOJ was contemplating charging Kyle immediately following his acquittal. At this point I think that was fodder tossed to those rabidly claiming Kyle was racist engaged in hate crimes. I suspect DOJ… Read more »

If acquitted on state charges, and tried again on similar federal charges, it is because there are two different sovereigns. Remember our uniquely American system of duel sovereignty.

“Trudeau’s vicious response”

You should go back and review the videos.

Trudeau ordered a vicious response.

Who followed those orders (and also acted on their own initiative) to actually beat and arrest people?

Russn8r

Off topic. I guess GOA got penalties back into the Wyo SAPA?
https://www.gunowners.org/na03212022/

JSNMGC

Kind of: It didn’t specifically indicate that qualified immunity would not be allowed as a defense from civil suits; and It didn’t specify that it related to all federal gun laws enacted after a certain date. The wording is going to result in lawsuits when WY law enforcement works with federal law enforcement to enforce laws they believe are “constitutional:” “This state and all political subdivisions of this state are prohibited from using any personnel or funds appropriated by the legislature of the state of Wyoming or any other source of funds that originated within the state of Wyoming to… Read more »

reads like they are nullifying illegal laws , almost enough to make me move and the power hungry vote down

JSNMGC

I don’t think this legislation will matter one bit. WY enforcers will team up with federal enforcers, shoot a dentist’s golden retriever, scream obscenities and point guns at his wife and kids, handcuff him, tear his house apart looking for something he bought legally and with which he did nothing wrong and then go out for beers afterward and laugh about him. People will scream “but we have SAPA!” The enforcers will say “the law banning AR15s was constitutional.” The legislators who were involved in creating the legislation will shrug. The dog will be dead, the wife and kids will… Read more »

My man, you are going to get yourself into some deep downvoting trouble if you don’t start disagreeing with me (preferably with lies, feelings, and emotion – maybe even some vulgar insults).

if they do not like intelligent banter then I guess they will have to go cry their eyes out , I dont care. kind of makes me see them when they are off their meds. wb at times has civil and smart things to say but……and my view of police will forever be tainted by working around sooooooo many corrupt ones, only “normal” people i worked with were jar heads still have a lot as “friends”

Finnky

So local governments can accept federal funds to enforce federal laws?
Money is fungible – so one might ask whether federal funds can be considered to have originated in Wyoming. Fed money originates from across the country including from Wyoming, and only a small portion returns to Wyoming. Accepting fed money could be considered akin to laundering money, to avoid appearance of origination in Wyoming.
interesting conundrum.

JSNMGC

Read it again, Finnky.

What you described isn’t the problem with the legislation.

Russn8r

Thanks. I remember the testimony in which the POS below helped Bloomberg gut the original SAPA with teeth, forcing the author to vote against his own bill. Am I wrong, or does POS not look all that happy with the final bill? That would be nice.

I’m troubled by the language. It seems like a very clever “out”. They’ll say anything they do is constitutional unless the court already declared it unconstitutional. Maybe the law can be improved if police get away with defecating on the spirit of it. At a minimum, the word “unconstitutional” should be removed.

Russn8r

POS

JSNMGC

You’re welcome. Are you referring to the guys in the background with the bling? If so, yes – they joined Moms Demand Action and Everytown for Gun Safety to defeat SAPA last year. I agree, as I mentioned above, the language in this bill is dependent on whether the laws are “constitutional.” Of course, the enforcers will say any law passed by legislators and signed by the President is constitutional unless people in black robes say it isn’t. The legislation last year was driving toward wording that specified which laws could not be enforced (e.g., any firearm laws passed after… Read more »

would love to see them hauled in court every time they talked to atf would fix a few wagons

JSNMGC

The Wyoming taxpayers will pay for “their” defense.

I’m not sure anyone but the individual taking them to court would pay for the cost of challenging them.

The process is expensive and time consuming and the government has unlimited resources.

swmft

that is why there are gun laws in violation of the constitution in the first place , because it costs so much to fight them and the toads that write this are not charged as they should be under title 18

The absolute worst crime you can commit in America is to not respect the authority of a government employee.

you should have seen the clashes between federal and local in the eighties, at times almost blew up , newyork arrested two feds traveling through airport armed local feds showed up at precinct with machine guns and hard cars to pickup their “friends”

gregs

yes, you did see the jack booted thugs enforcing illegal laws in canada and australia also. there may well be a time that our leo’s decide to do the same thing to save their job, they we will see which are hero’s and which are zero’s. remember the nazi concentration camp guards “were only doing their jobs.” i don’t see any difference.

JSNMGC

A certain percentage of enforcers already use the Nuremburg defense and expect “civilians” to thank them for doing so. A poster here did it recently.

sad part is the others will overlook this behavior and support the bad

I agree (based on history).
