My Thoughts on Gun Control   Leave a comment

Anyone who has read my blog before knows that I am a constitutionalist who does not believe in gun control.

There are reasons for this.

The FIRST one being that when I was 12-13 my 90-pound mother scared away three big rapists from our home using her 357. We know they were rapists because after they left our house, they went down the street, broke into a house that was not armed, and made a man watch as they gang-raped his daughter, a schoolmate of mine. When I called the cops to report the men banging down the door, the dispatcher — a friend of my parents — said “Does your mother have a gun because it will be at least a half-hour before I can get anyone to respond?” Cops are always minutes away when seconds count. And, but for Mom’s gun, I might have been that girl.

The SECOND reason is that I have a natural right to protect myself. Notice I didn’t say CONSTITUTIONAL right. The US Constitution ACKNOWLEDGES our right to self-protection in the 2nd amendment, but it does NOT grant us that right. That right existed before the Constitution. It was the whole reason for Lexington-Concord …  14 years before the ratification of the Constitution. The British were coming to take the patriots’ guns and the patriots moved to stop them because they did not recognize the King’s argument that he had authority to tell them if they could protect themselves from his tyranny. They knew they had that right whether government recognized it or not and would be appalled that we in the 21st century are so ill-informed.

In a time when police routinely gun down unarmed Americans in the street, the last thing Americans need to do is give up our guns.

Maybe if the government relinquished theirs first, but we know that’s not going to happen.

It is shooting ourselves in the heads to submit to government tyranny under the guise of taking care of us.

Some thoughts from the Founders.

“Fireams stand next in importance of the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.” George Washington

“Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of other counties whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” James Madison

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

 “No Free Man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms.  The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” Thomas Jefferson




“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.” — Benjamin Franklin


“Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them.” Miranda vs. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436, 491.

“An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.” Norton vs. Shelby County, 118 US 425, 442.
