(FromTheTrenchesWorldReport) – In a victory for Maryland concealed carry, open carry, and gun Rights, Carroll County has passed resolution 884-2013, a Second Amendment Preservation Act.
“The Board reasonably believes the MFSA to be “pretended” (unconstitutional) legislation and be it further resolved that the Board, in affirmation of the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Carroll County, herein direct that Carroll County Government will not authorize or appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers or offices for the purpose of enforcing any element of the MFSA that infringes on the right of the people to keep and bear arms” [Source Legislation]
Two other counties, Cecil and Hartford, have also joined Carroll County, Maryland, in nullifying new Maryland gun control legislation, which:
- Bans 45 types of Rifles
- Bans magazines carrying more than 10 bullets, and criminalizes the utilization of said magazines already owned
- Deputizes doctors against patients, encourages reporting of gun owners to government, prohibits ownership of guns by “mentally ill” deemed so by the State
- Requires fingerprinting for new handgun purchases
- Requires licensing and training for new handgun purchases
“What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?” -Thomas Jefferson
The Right to bear arms is the fabric upon which other Rights find their peace and defense.
An individual must be able to defend his own life to exist, thus, the Right to bear arms is self-evident, accompanying your existence.
Without the conscious you, without the ability to make the choices which define and make your life, without your ability and freedom to reason and act, of what use is your body, your life, to you?
Those who wish to attack this Right, to limit this Right, to “eliminate” this Right of yours in their minds and their life, do not understand why it is needed, and it is because of that lack of knowledge, and out of fear of their recognized ignorance & incapability to motivate themselves to learn about this subject, that they resort to the monopoly of force, government, for a “solution”.
If and when you NEED the Right to bear arms, you NEED it; your life is dependent on it, and thus, all your other Rights become dependent on it.
Gun owners do not wish knowledge-by-experience upon those who oppose guns, but knowledge on this subject through self-motivation. If someone is choosing to defend their own life with Arms, there is a reason for it.
And if an individual using a gun understands what comes out the other end of a gun, and understands the associated responsibilities & consequences, the reasoning behind the use of guns is most likely the defense of one’s Life, Rights, & Property, & that of others.
