CELEBRATE THE FIRST ANNUAL NATIONAL GUN APPRECIATION DAY SATURDAY, JANUARY 19, 2013

Oh, you hadn’t heard of Gun Appreciation Day? Darn! If we only had a Main Stream Media to report such things, we’d have known sooner. You don’t have much time to get ready. So let’s get started! You’ll want to visit the Gun Appreciation Day Web Site.

The first thing you’ll see is Real Gun News Not Found in the main Stream Media.

News such as:

TEXAS PROPOSAL: JAIL ANY FEDERAL OFFICIALS TRYING TO ENFORCE NEW GUN RESTRICTIONS IN THE STATE

WALTER WILLIAMS: AMERICANS MISUNDERSTAND POINT OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT

JUDGE NAPOLITANO REACTS TO NY TIMES CRITICISM: “EITHER WE HAVE A 2ND AMENDMENT OR WE DON’T”

Take a look at the sponsoring organizations—all 94 of them. I didn’t see support from members of Congress. In fairness perhaps, like me, they signed this petition:

Petition

Sign Petition

Whereas, the Bill of Rights added further declaratory and restrictive clauses to the U.S. Constitution in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers; and

Whereas, those further declaratory and restrictive clauses relate directly to the fundamental rights of individuals, including the sweeping declaratory Ninth and Tenth Amendments, which guarantee that powers not delegated by the people to the United States in the Constitution and those powers not granted to the separate states were reserved to the people; and

Whereas, history demonstrates convincingly that the first act of tyrannical governments in expanding their powers beyond those granted to them is to disarm or short arm individuals so as to render them defenseless against the state’s heavily armed police and soldiery; and

Whereas, the authors of the first ten amendments included the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights because they understood this lesson of history and consequently believed as a matter of fact that a well-armed citizenry is both a necessary condition of liberty and the only effective deterrent against tyranny; and

Whereas, there is a plethora of evidence confirming these facts in the writings and statements of the Founders—including the author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, and the Father of the Constitution, James Madison, as well as in numerous other documents and writings contemporary of the Founding of the United States; and

Whereas, these writings and statements also demonstrate conclusively that the authors of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights believed as a matter of philosophy that every human being possesses an inalienable, fundamental, natural right, which pre-dates the Second Amendment, to own and bear arms and, if necessary, to use those arms in self defense, including self defense against tyrannical government agents, police forces and armies that would over step their proper bounds; and

Whereas, George Mason, the Father of the Bill of Rights, summed it up best when he said, “To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them;” and

Whereas, the Second Amendment was designed specifically to prevent the people’s enslavement by guaranteeing that individuals not only would retain the right and means to defend themselves against private outlaws who would do them harm but also to provide individuals an effective deterrent against and a means to defend themselves against tyrannical and oppressive governments and their agents acting improperly under the color of law; and

Whereas, the Second Amendment was and remains an unambiguous and unrestricted, sweeping guarantee of individuals’ right to own and bear arms and use them in their own self defense; now

Therefore, We the Undersigned petition the United States Government to cease and desist all efforts to disarm or short-arm the American people by limiting and disparaging the Second Amendment or rendering it a dead letter through federal legislation, interpretation and regulation.

Go ahead and sign. Then get the word out. Send this post to every concerned American you know.
