Is it time for a “Second Shot” to be heard around the world?

Posted on 21st January 2013 in Bigreb speaks his mind...

“That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms…” – Samuel Adams

Our Constitutional Republic was founded by men of honor who believed in God and who had high moral values… What we have in government today is a far cry from our founders… I wonder today if a document was put in front of them to sign, and it stated In the “Year Of Our Lord”, how many would sign it or ask that in the ”Year Of Our Lord” be removed so it would be politically correct…

A good example is our Constitution… “Done in Convention by the Unanimous Consent of the States present the Seventeenth Day of September in the Year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty seven and of the Independence of the United States of America

Our country was founded on principals that all men were created equal… That government should not force any religion down its citizen’s throats that the people gave the government limited powers and there would be no taxation without representation… These were just a few of the reasons the colonies turned on England and its king…

The British troops were used as “community cops” … They would move into a colony, billet themselves in established housing moving the owners/occupants out, eat and drink at the local taverns where the owners were too intimidated to try and collect for the services they rendered, and go about collecting the kings taxes… There was no ‘tax rate” established, just whatever the commandant had been ordered by the “crown” to collect… The colonies were growing weary of the tyrants and the crown… I guess today it could be said we are growing weary of our government and President…

On April 19, 1775 the famous shot that was heard around the world was fired at Lexington, Massachusetts… This because the local government, backed by the British troops, demanded the colonies to turn over their weapons (sound familiar)… This would mark the beginning of the end for England and the birth of a new and free nation where the people were the government… Shortly thereafter we declared ourselves free of foreign control, established a Constitution and Bill of Rights…

For a good number of years our Republic grew and prospered… Free enterprise was born with limited government control… Communities all over the United States were established with their own elected officials and our country flourished…

Moving ahead to our current conditions… The government is now involved in every aspect of our lives… We are having Islam crammed down our throats with a threat of Shariah law becoming a part of our daily lives… Taxes are completely out of control with the average tax payer now paying better than 50% of his income to local, county, state and federal governments… Our 2nd amendment is under attack and equally as dangerous is the use of government troops to enforcement the law within the borders of the United States which is a direct violation of The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which prohibits the use of U.S. military forces to perform the tasks of civilian law enforcement such as arrest, apprehension, interrogation and detention unless explicitly authorized by Congress…

Under the cloak of authority, 3 events saw over 90 men, women and children murdered and scores more in injured by local, county, state and federal officers…

Kent State  shooting  in 1970, also known as the Kent State massacre which occurred at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting, and killing, of 4 unarmed college students and wounding dozens more by the Ohio National Guard;

Waco, 1993 … In 1993, after a lengthy standoff, soldiers from Fort Hood were ordered in by then U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno and, using armored vehicles and incendiary devices, murdered 74 men, women and children in Waco, Texas;

Ruby Ridge  … this attack on a citizen and his wife by the U.S. Marshall’s office, F.B.I., Attorney General’s office and the ATF started in 1983 and finally came to a head in 1993 when Weavers son, wife and pet are murdered by the FBI… It started when U.S. Marshalls disobeyed orders from a judge to “back off” a case they were working on until a court date could be reached. The courts dropped all charges against Randy Weaver and Kevin Harris, too little to late… Later investigations by a Senate committee and the DOJ would find the F.B.I. violated the established “rules of engagement”… The U.S. Government settled with Weaver and his 3 daughters and the F.B.I. disciplined the officers involved…

Three incidents involving our Government officials have left over 90 innocents dead… Three incidents where the government, using force, went to private property and murdered American citizens in the name of justice…

These are just a few of the many cases where our government has misused its power against innocents and now we have a president who has shown he feels the Constitution and Bill of Rights is his to change anyway he chooses… A good example is when the Congress subpoenaed Attorney General Eric Holder, Jr. over his, and the presidents, involvement in Fast and Furious, Obama exercised his “Executive Privilege” to protect he and Holder from having to appear before Congress or turn over any records… You may remember one of the arms sold to Mexican drug dealers was used to kill border patrol agent Brian Terry…

Over the past few months we have had several terrible incidents where mad men have killed using firearms… The facts from all these murders have still not all come out as in the case of Sandy Hook… Those murders were not committed with a rifle but with a handgun  … In Colorado the shooter had gone to several theaters until he found one which did not allow concealed carry… 

There is no excuse for this but passing additional restrictive gun control laws is not the answer…All of these shooters had mental health issues that were well known to the parents and doctors…

All of this is really mute at this point… The Obama administration and a handful of law makers have been waiting for something like this to happen so they can push their “anti-gun” agenda… In fact California Senator Diane Feinstein-D commented, right after the Sandy Hook shooting, she has been working on a “Assault weapon and high cap magazine bill for over a year just waiting for the right time to introduce it… She originally said she would introduce it on January 3, 2013 when the Congress started its new session

What we are looking at is a small handful of state and federal legislators, supported by the democrat controlled drive by media, who are intent on destroying our 2nd amendment and Obama is their cheerleader… He has said he would do an end run around Congress and, with his recent signing of 23 Executive Actions he is well on his way…

Obama needs to be impeached along with every other elected official who is advocating the destruction of our 2nd amendment…

Our forefathers commented on the importance of the 2nd Amendment to keep our elected officials in line and to preserve our Constitution and Bill of Rights…

“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press.” – Thomas Jefferson

The 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights: “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.”

Remember “An ARMED society is a FREE society” and “A family who shoots together stays FREE”
