"The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let's not have any native militia or native police."
- Adolph Hitler
I've already discussed in detail how guns are in fact being banned by the federal government in America today and there I offered my view on how this has happened in broad daylight. Many like to believe government wouldn't do such a thing because there are so many guns in America, and because gun owners are passionate about their right to self defense, and because our Constitution makes it crystal clear that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
But that doesn't change the fact that the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, one level lower than the Supreme Court of the United States, said that States banning AR-15s and semi-automatic weapons does not, in some strange Alice in Wonderland universe, violate the Second Amendment. That decision will be raised to the Supreme Court where they will have the opportunity to correct this injustice, or nationalize it with the stroke of a pen.
But based on this recent Supreme Court decision (a decision to let an unconstitutional ruling by the Seventh Circuit stand), we are all but assured that our nation's highest court will pass on the opportunity to correct the Second Circuit. If they had wanted to correct this issue they would have done so at the first opportunity. Instead, they let the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals get away with violating our constitution and disarming Americans. There is no reason to believe they won't do the same with the Second Circuit. Their silence on the matter is deafening. So let it be known that throughout the kingdom, the king's men can infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, particularly those arms that make a more effective militia that can better deter tyrannical government. But you can keep your BB gun. For now.
Our third branch of government was to be a check and balance. It has become, however, a loophole to be used to completely subvert our law and the will of the people.
And like dominoes, federal court circuits, cities, and States will fall to this new kingly proclamation that decimates a clearly written basic constitutional right; the right to defend yourself against tyrannical government should the need arise. And sadly, the militia-- which is the American people themselves and not a government sanctioned organization-- will disappear in a patchwork that then becomes a whole. And all this accomplished without amending the Constitution as our system requires.
Our third branch of government at the highest judicial levels has made it clear to Americans in Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, New York, Connecticut and Vermont that semi-automatic rifles can be banned despite the Second Amendment. You can be sure this list of States will continue to grow.
It will grow. Yes, even in your State. Most definitely in this State.
An amendment is not needed when you have nine justices in robes ready to pronounce (through action or inaction) that our supreme law, which through the Bill of Rights restrains government power and recognizes our most basic rights, doesn't actually "mean" what it states. An amendment is not actually required in a lawless nation when you have idiots ready to believe that government gets to say what the supreme law of the people means, despite and regardless of the clear text of that law itself. So long as Americans accept the myth of the "living Constitution" that can be interpreted to mean anything a person in power at the time wants it to mean, sculpted in the moment like a child playing with Play-Doh, then the document is null and void and offers no protection. It no longer matters that the American people created our federal government with the non-negotiable provision that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
This is no longer a slippery slope discussion. Gun bans are here now, because the rule of law is dead in America. Government does not restrain itself by obeying the law or recognizing its limits in the face of the rights of the people. It simply uses the law-ish as yet another blunt instrument to rule the common folk in our new Feudalistic States of America.
It's not just government that is responsible for this sad state of affairs and this American Dark Age. It's also our people who so often eagerly lap up and accept whatever they are told by government. Whether so called left or right, the average American today embraces fascism while the targets of their desired government force might differ. Whether an American wants to use government machinery to violate the Second Amendment rights of their neighbors, or whether they'd rather use that machinery to violate the First Amendment rights of certain religious neighbors, it is exceedingly rare in our country to find an American who values the principles of America and who doesn't want to use tools of violence to force others to do, or not to do, as they wish. Americans love using force against others to make them bend to their personal desires. Americans are as unprincipled on the whole, as they are stupid. Take a look around. Americans are not a smart group. Peruse the popular shows on TV to get an idea of their values. Take a look at their life decisions and how they spend their time. The rot among our people is staggering and it permeates the entire culture regardless of party affiliation or educational background. In such a rot, it's not surprising that maggots would emerge to pick the bones of the once greatest nation on earth.
The unconstitutional banning of guns isn't just coming, it's already here. And it will continue to get worse. Our nation is repeating history, just as German military officers folded and failed to uphold their oaths to their constitution, and as their judiciary followed not long after. Tyranny became "legal" through the courts as influenced and made fear ridden by their executive. Separation of powers failed. Of the people, by the people, and for the people failed. And state violence and oppression increased to the point where it was undeniable to even the most timid and stupid.
But you should be sure to avoid serious discussion on social media though, just as the Germans in the late 1930s didn't challenge their neighbors on serious matters out of fear or apathy. There is no need to be offensive or controversial in your potentially-trigger-warning worthy discussions. You don't want to be seen as tin foil do you? Sure, your neighbors may be on your jury of "peers" one day and they may usher and cheer our once great nation's fall into a massively powerful tyranny, but is that really worth talking about? Is now really the time to exercise your free speech rights? You don't want people to think you don't respect their position on what constitutional rights you can personally exercise, right? Just keep talking about NFL and safe topics and such. Stick your head in the sand. Do your best to fit in. It will all work out. Really it will.
Just not for you, your family, or your children.
