Protecting American Gun Rights
The Bill of Rights is very clear about its intention to convey gun rights to US citizens. While some try to argue that the provision is only intended to provide for a "well-regulated militia," the amendment adopted on December 15, 1791, reads--
"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."
While hunting, self and home defense are powerful arguments in support of the Second Amendment, many of the founding fathers of America made it clear their concern was the ability of the American public to counter any threats from both foreign invasion and government tyranny from a powerful central/federal government.
James Madison wrote in his essay Federalist No. 46 that the American people are the common superior of both the federal and state governments, and that the right to bear arms was to assure that states and citizens could resist or overcome any foreign or domestic power that would infringe upon American rights and liberties.
In the United States today, mass shootings that occur in public places, theaters, and schools reinvigorate calls from the left for "gun control" regulations that are a precursor to full gun confiscation as witnessed in England and Australia.
Many of the globalist and socialist power groups that support destructive mass migrations from third world nations into America and Europe also espouse this agenda to sideline the Second Amendment and disarm the American public.
Their leaders and organizations have openly discussed completing their plans to infringe the rights of US citizens to bear arms as soon as they have completed their objectives of "immigration reform" (Amnesty for illegal immigrants) and silencing First Amendment rights through totalitarian controls applied by the media, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley communications companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Google.
At this time, the United States is being forcibly transformed into a nation filled with newcomers who hold alien or antithetical viewpoints to the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
At the American Defense Network, we contend that these efforts are planned, funded, and organized by groups and powers not enumerated in the US Constitution that qualify as "enemies foreign and domestic".
It is one thing to have differing views on issues in America. Our nation and freedoms were designed by the founders to incorporate changing attitudes and allow the American public to be in charge of America's national destiny.
But closer inspection of many of the power groups pushing for "immigration reform" and full gun confiscation in America reveals they intend to bypass, overcome, and eventually rewrite or destroy the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. They argue that America's laws and founding documents are part of an evil and racist form of imperialist European neo-colonialism system they wish to replace with a "social justice" model, socialism, and open borders globalism where the American public falls under the control of foreign powers forevermore.
At the American Defense Network, we believe that the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, American flag, and our way of life are paramount, and we hope to educate more Americans about the threats to the Second Amendment and what groups and individuals are responsible for these attacks on our nation's foundations.
Here are some recommendations we have for Americans who support the Bill of Rights and Second Amendment.
-- Americans should focus on the fact that 99% of all Americans of all races, political parties, and walks of life stand against the taking of innocent lives with guns or any other means. This should be the focus of any national debate as this commonality unites us and makes us stronger as a nation. Voices that choose the more divisive course pursuing gun controls that would lead to eventual gun rights restrictions and confiscations are taking the country towards a perilous conflict. Americans should focus on the issue aspects that unite us, not the divisive assault on the Second Amendment touted by the contemporary American left.
-- Always remind others that the true intention of leftist groups is full gun confiscation in America similar to Australia and England despite their claims they only want minor modifications to current gun laws.
-- Point out that America should never disarm lawful citizens especially when the nation is under violent attack from within by enemies foreign and domestic.
-- Encourage the media and lawmakers to focus on other factors which could be contributing to gun violence and mass murder in America such as known SSRI (Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) drug side effects which include suicidal and homicidal tendencies. (A large percentage of mass shootings involve SSRI drugs.)
-- Point out government failures to adequately enforce existing gun laws as was the case with Dylan Roof, the Charleston Church Shooter, and Florida School Shooter Nikolas Cruz. The federal government has been rewarded with more power, money, and control for failing US citizens. We must bring more attention to government failures to properly enforce existing gun safety laws while asking for more laws and less freedom for US citizens.
-- Point out that average citizens in heavy gun control nations like Mexico are powerless and trapped between corrupt government and mass murdering criminal cartels. Many of these cities and countries with the most invasive gun laws have the highest crime and homicide rates.
-- Point out that researchers believe over 100,000 people have been killed by their own governments since 1900 and most of those mass murder purges have occurred in left wing socialist and communist nations that were able to conduct large scale pogroms against unarmed or disarmed civilians.
-- Legal American gun owners who are conceal carry permit holder have the lowest crime propensity of any group in America or the world. More appropriate studies, discussions, and policies should be focused on violent and gun crime that occurs in inner city areas of America where honest conversations and research is heavily hampered by leftists politicians, political correctness ideologies, and political parties that most often benefit from and govern the high crime precincts.
