The Second Amendment Was Never About The Right To Go Hunting

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government....

The right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed

In all the noise and clamor today over guns and gun control, let us pause for a moment and refresh our failing memories with exactly what the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution actually says and secures:

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” September 21, 1789, Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.


Read those words written by our forefathers and let them sink in. The right to own guns to protect your personal freedoms – keep and bear arms – was never, not even for a moment, written to protect your right to go deer and bear hunting.

It was written to guarantee all Americans for as long as the Union would survive, the right to own firearms to protect their liberties from their government and elected officials. To protect themselves from tyrants and dictators in the event they should arise. The use of guns for sports and recreation was not even a thought in their heads at the time they wrote this.

The way of all dictators

One lesson we have clearly been taught in the past 120 years, is that dictators, tyrants and liberals are not “against guns”. Not in the least. What they are against is letting you have guns to defend your self and your family. Every brutal dictator from Mao to Stalin to Mussolini to Hitler all have one thing in common. They all disarmed their citizens prior to placing them into subjection. And once having disarmed them, they all lorded over the people with fully-loaded weapons, using them at the slightest provocation. Hitler would never have been able to round up the Jews and place them in ghettos on their way to the concentration camps had those same Jews had weapons.

Liberals are not anti-gun

Obama and his Washington Progressives are not anti-gun. Don’t entertain that thought for one fleeting second. They love guns. They all have bodyguards with automatic weaponry, they all send their kids to fancy private schools with fully-armed guards. What they are against is YOU having guns to protect yourself. That is what they seek to control, to ban, to eradicate. Not guns, but the ability of the citizenry for self-defense from tyrants. Once you are disarmed, you become easy prey. Our Founding Fathers knew this, and did everything they could to warn future generations from becoming disarmed.

Our Founding Fathers said this about defending ourselves from tyrants:

“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 may have a gun.” – Patrick Henry

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword, because the whole of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.” Noah Webster

“Arms in the hands of the citizens may be used at individual discretion for the defense of the country, the overthrow of tyranny or private self-defense.” John Adams

“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” Thomas Jefferson

The last generation

My fellow Americans, choose wisely. What you allow to happen here in 2013 will dictate the course of how America will go hereafter. Freedom and liberty are not guaranteed, it is not a given. It was won by blood, sweat and toil and will be preserved by the same. The current battle in our local governments and in the White House is not about “gun control” or the “public safety”. It is about controlling you. It is about removing your right and ability to defend yourself against tyrants and dictators.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
                                                                   Ronald Reagan

And remember this: Every modern dictatorship in the past 200 years has disarmed the people. And then having disarmed them, they enslaved them. Finally, having enslaved them they were sent to camps to be tortured and killed. This is the legacy of Stalin, Mao, Hitler and all the rest. Hitler killed 11,000,000, Stalin 21,000,000, WWII killed 55,000,000.

What you allow to happen now could very well remove what freedoms we have left as a nation. In our bloated pride and false sense of patriotism, we think that this could never happen to us. We think that we will always be free because we are Americans. But you are dead wrong.

Disregard the lessons of history at the cost of your own life.

Well I have said it many times. I am 32 with a wife and 3 boys. I would not hesitate grabbing my guns and having at it. The problem is the majority of this nation is weak, lazy, and cowardly. Or they just don’t care. I don’t want my kids growing up under a ruler. Two things must happen, Jesus coming back real soon or we stand up. If they try and disarm us, I guarantee there will be blood and in the end WE WILL HAVE HER BACK. Mr O likes these uprisings across the world, is he going to like the one that is after him?

A very large and troublesome problem is the revised history that has been taught for years. This has led astray a whole generation, dumbed down, and ineffective. Not only are they unaware of their own history, they have been taught to avoid any mention of truth. Instead, they are glued to TV screens that spout nothing but tabloid nonsense, over-the-top video games and drugs. This renders any nation impotent. Hopefully, there will be enough informed and determined people to take back what we lost.

Like that old saying, Those who hammer their guns in plows, will soon be plowing for those who did not. In answer to C, our children, and even us were brainwashed in school, in the media, movies, news papers and etc. You can even watch kiddie movies and cartoons and see the brainwashing. The movie happy feet, almost all the nature shows, have a U.N. Agenda 21 motives. But there are enough old school, left to stand up. I think we should start a civilian militia, just in case they try to take our guns away.

I wish people would stop allowing idiots to say the 2nd Amendment is about hunting it has NOTHING to do with hunting.

January 10, 2013 7:58 pm

Some guy was on the news last night moking the gun carriers as basically redneck hunters. The news anchor was chuckling right along. Infuriating.

I agree we all were brainwashed but we have one thing that kept us from falling into the deep. I agree with the militia. It needs to be done. The moment they say bring your guns in, it would be their last declaration. I truly believe most police agencies would not enforce it. Most military would go AWOL. Most if them know O hates them period so why die for this fool. I could be wrong but I have talked to both police and military members and this is what they said. In fact one member told me that they have a group that would turn if martial law was instated. Drones, spying on our emails, this has to stop. All of them need to be charged with treason PERIOD. Iam serious. Thus fires me up and makes me not want to take this crap anymore.

Would of stated right bear bear arms for food, hunting and sporting. Lol. Well if is about hunting it does talk about tyrants. We could use them to hunt down tyrants right?

January 10, 2013 7:35 pm

Yes according to the second Amendment you have the right to hunt down Tyrants. A tyrant can be considered anyone who goes against the constitution right down to your doctor who is going to be required to implant you with an RFID chip that was snuck into the Obama care bill which must be implemented between March 2013-2017!

If we examine the motive behind the spin we can easily see why a government would aggressively seek to ban and confiscate long barreled guns (rifles). A handgun or shotgun poses no real threat to a military or tactical force. A rifle, however, can be effectively used (by anyone who can aim) to stop or deter an opposing force. The first guns Hitler took were the rifles. So it was with the Comintern.
Hide and watch!!

Whoa whoa whoa. Is this word of mouth or do you have a link where I can read this. Sorry but I have to read this in order to believe. I have been told a lot of stuff that didn’t pan out and I make it a rule to do my own research. I would not doubt this because if who this man is but I need to see this myself before I tell others. Nothing against you

January 10, 2013 7:55 pm

THE RFID CHIP info is in the Obama Care Bill. this has been reported on Fox news with Megan Kelly and Ron Paul. Look up HR 4872 and HR 3590 you can look these up. Now with that said the HR 3590 does not specifically say RFID chip! BUT!!! It does state class II device. On the FDA website, search: Guidance for Industry and FDA Staff-Class II Special Controls Guidance Document: Implantable Radiofrequency Transponder System for Patient Identification and Health Information. That is what a RFID device IS! When you get to that page scroll down to where it says background and read the first paragraph. There are other class II devices as well, but it’s a good way to slide it in the bill.
