Second Amendment Overview
“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.”
Let’s break this down:
Well regulated militia: A militia is a fully legal and authorized group of armed citizens. A militia is NOT the military, National Guard, or law enforcement. It is simply citizens who are armed. If YOU are armed, you are in the militia. See our in depth explanation of a militia at “What is a Militia?“
A free state: Today we think of “states” as California, Florida, and all states in between. Technically, a state is: “a nation or territory considered as an organized political community under one government. Germany, Italy, and other European countries are states.” So as we think of states from a US standpoint, “states” actually means a “country”. In the US we are 50 countries (or states) that are united as one federal state. Or, at least we use to be.
Infringed defined: actively break the terms of a law or agreement.
The Second Amendment was adopted in 1791 or 225 years ago. The style of writing back then was slightly different than today. Therefore, to “translate” into a slightly more modern style:
The people of our free states (the United States), who are the armed militia, have the right to keep and bear arms. Their right to this shall not be be legally broken.
Again, this is NOT referring to the military or law enforcement. It is referring to “We the people”.
There are many, many ways liberals and Democrats are attempting to re-write the Second Amendment.
In Muslim terrorist countries, Muslims begin their teaching children as early as two years old, that the United States, Christians, and Jews are their enemies. And its okay to slaughter them like cattle. Literally.
With the new Common Core curriculum being used in many states today, it too teaches children a new and different version of the Second Amendment. See: Common Core Rewrites 2nd Amendment. The point is that US educators have begun teaching our children at an early age that guns are bad and the Constitution is wrong.
The US Government is also going after gun and ammo manufacturers. One very brilliant way they are doing this is through the EPA. The EPA Clean Air act has already caused one major ammo manufacturer of lead used in ammunition to close at the end of 2013. This will make lead much harder to get and much more expensive. (See story.)
The FBI and DHS are also treating people who buy ammo and guns as domestic terrorist. See “Gov’t asks businesses to rat-out preppers“.
Former New York Mayor and huge anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg is spending $50 million dollars of his own money to fight the National Rifle Association (NRA). He wants all guns taken from citizens and is going to use this opportunity to increase anti-gun feelings with US citizens.
Secretary of State John Kerry’s signing of the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) “on behalf of President Barack Obama and the people of the United States.”
Article 3 of that agreement outlaws the buying, selling, trading, or transferring by civilians of all “ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms.”
We could continue with other stories but I believe this proves that there is an attack on the Second Amendment. If you support your Second Amendment rights, you need to get involved.
Join the NRA, National Association of Gun Owners, and even your state sponsored militia (sometimes called the State Guard and open to everyone).
