“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776
“To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them.”
– George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”
– Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
– Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778
“The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”
– Joseph Story, Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1833
“On every occasion [of Constitutional interpretation] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying [to force] what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, [instead let us] conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
– Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Johnson, 12 June 1823
There is only one reason people in power wish to disarm citizens. Control and power. In 1929, Stalin took guns away from his citizens, then murdered 20 million of them once defenseless. In 1935, Mao disarmed his citizens and proceeded to murder 20 million people. In 1938, Hitler disarmed his countrymen and proceeded to murder 13 million defenseless citizens. In 1956, Pol Pot took guns away and proceeded to murder 2 million defenseless people. Do you see a pattern here?
We do not have the right to bear arms so that we can go hunting for whatever game we wish to hunt. Our forefathers put the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights in case a tyrant decided to try and destroy our Constitution and way of life. In case you are wondering what tyranny looks like, look no further than Washington, D.C., and our corrupt politicians. Trump needs to drain the swamp.
These are dangerous times in America. If you think law abiding citizens will just freely hand over their weapons, you might want to think again. “Those who fail to remember the past are doomed to repeat it.”
The inborn right to self defense and the ability of the people to maintain individual liberties in the face of tyranny supersedes all other arguments on gun rights. In fact, nothing else matters.
The solution is simple — abolish all gun free zones.
There is no way to calculate how many crimes and mass shootings have been prevented exactly because private gun ownership acted as a deterrent.
Most gun grabbers are oblivious to this kind of logic because they are blinded by ideological biases. Some of them, however, understand the truth of this completely, and they don’t care. They are not in the business of saving lives; they are in the business of exploiting death. They want something entirely different from what they claim they want. They are not interested in life, they are interested in control.
Let me put this in the simplest of terms for gun grabbers. You don’t ever get to disarm us. Never.
In order to enforce this gun control dream, you are going to need people with guns to enforce your will. So really you aren’t against guns; you just want who you choose to have guns.
But we really don’t need to have a conversation about our rights to keep and bear arms. They’re rights. There’s nothing to talk about.
This goes for all our rights. I think we’ll keep ’em — all of them, unchanged.
Evil acts don’t cancel out a law-abiding citizen’s rights.
We know that us having rights is inconvenient, but that’s too bad. Because we aren’t asking you for our rights. We’re telling you we aren’t giving them up.

While the above cartoon makes a good point, let us not lose track of the real tragedy in our country. We have lost our critical thinking skills due to apathy and a failed (purposefully) educational system. Once education was corrupted to enslave our children with college debt while at the same time becoming indoctrination centers, the Republic was lost. If you have any doubt, look at the amount of people still arguing that Trump is guilty without any reason.
When the remnant rebuilds, we must ensure two things to succeed:
In the meantime, pray for the lemmings as they go over the precipice.
“When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices so they could embalm him. Very early on Sunday morning, as the sun rose, they went to the tomb. They worried out loud to each other, “Who will roll back the stone from the tomb for us?”
Then they looked up, saw that it had been rolled back—it was a huge stone—and walked right in. They saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed all in white. They were completely taken aback, astonished.
He said, “Don’t be afraid. I know you’re looking for Jesus the Nazarene, the One they nailed on the cross. He’s been raised up; he’s here no longer. You can see for yourselves that the place is empty. Now—on your way. Tell his disciples and Peter that he is going on ahead of you to Galilee. You’ll see him there, exactly as he said.””

The average IQ in the DR Congo is 76. For clarification:
Scores below 85 are often classified in the following way:
People who have contracted Ebola are opting to die at home rather than seek treatment as conspiracy theories fuel distrust of the government and of health workers grappling with the crisis in the Democratic Republic of Congo, according to the workers and aid groups.
Nearly 20 new cases of the deadly illness are being identified daily in two northeast provinces of the country. Both areas are opposition strongholds where political tensions run high.
How would you classify the Democrat’s policy to allow open borders to the world? It is unknown how many have already crossed in the country in this Democrat sponsored invasion. But here is information concerning those who have been caught just in the El Paso region this year through March 30, 2019:
More than 36,000 migrant families arrived in the El Paso region in fiscal year 2019, compared with about 2,000 at the same time last year, according to the El Paso Times.
McAleenan said many refugees are suffering from contagious diseases. He fears crowded detention centers will make matters much worse.
“We are doing everything we can to simply avoid a tragedy in a CBP facility,’’ McAleenan said, according to Fox News. “But with these numbers, with the types of illnesses we’re seeing at the border, I fear that it’s just a matter of time.”
I doubt that the Dunning-Kruger (DK) Democrats realize that their quest for power through voter fraud will have unintended consequences but maybe they do. I suspect that their IQ is about the same level as those in the Congo based on their limited cognitive ability to do anything other than destroy our Republic. What does that say about the other half of the country which continues to service and fund these looters?
What will you do when your child contracts a deadly disease at their local indoctrination center? Obamacare was not meant to improve health care or treat people whose prognosis is not within their “quality of life” parameters. If you think this is hyperbole, consider this article from CNN:
More than 2,000 people in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody are being quarantined amid an outbreak of mumps and other diseases. The numbers of immigrants in custody with a contagious diseases has spiked in the past year. For the previous two years, the agency has not encountered a single case of mumps among its detainees.
“As of March 7, 2019, there was a total of 2,287 detainees cohorted for exposure to a detainee with a contagious condition,” said ICE spokesperson Brendan Raedy in a statement. In the past 12 months, there have been health investigations at 51 ICE detention facilities for mumps, chickenpox and influenza, according to Raedy.
When (not if) the pandemics start, the first response of the government will be to suppress the information and blame anyone but themselves. There will not be a concerted effort to stop the spread of contagion(s). There will be shortages of vaccines and antibiotics which will lead to rationing to the same DK Democrats who caused the issue. And issue is the correct term at that point in time because this will help eradicate the base of deplorables standing in their way.
Our moral framework is collapsing, and our kids and grandkids and great-grandkids will pay dearly. How can I hold my tongue from speaking or restrain my pen from writing?
It is love that motivates me and moves me. Love for God. Love for America. Love for the coming generations. Love for what is best.
You can call it hate. You can brand me a Nazi. That will only encourage me to speak up all the more clearly.
On Monday, I tweeted, “[Make] no mistake about it: You can be polite, gracious, friendly, kind, and civil when discussing LGBT issues. But if you don’t affirm the LGBT agenda, you’ll be branded a hateful, bigoted, Nazi homophobe. Don’t be surprised!”
In response, a concerned mom posted: “Sad truth! Even my daughter who goes to a Christian school comes under attack for defending what the Bible has to say about homosexuality. She gets so frustrated. Cried today to me about having to defend 2 genders among a few of her friends. Jesus said we would be persecuted.”
