The hope is in communication, reading, and understanding….
Principles remain through time. Our rights remain the same….
Every once in a while, I think encouraging reading and research benefits others to better understand the dynamics of our second amendment rights. The framers knew that our individual freedoms were paramount, and that to better secure those rights, we each needed the ability to defend those rights. Our second amendment rights are to protect our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, which included freedom of speech along with the others. They knew, that one of the first steps tyrannical governments take to subvert a people is to take the populace’s ability to protect themselves. And they use the institutions of information, taking them over, to propagandize the citizenship into becoming sheep. To those who honestly study history, including socialist and communist nations, they know this to be true. Every time I’ve read about dictatorships, thus far, I’ve noticed the ability of the people to defend themselves and others is taken away.
In the blogging world, sometimes it’s difficult to explain, for many readers are concerned to lose support if they support our constitutional rights. They also fear being labelled and “official monitors” knowing who they are. I get it. But that’s how countries lose their freedoms. One individual at a time. That’s why I encourage reading and research, for in the end, they have to follow the rabbit of reason leading to understanding. No nation can be free without the ability to protect themselves and others. And this principle works all across societal spectrum. But there’s more. It’s not just us. It’s protecting our children and future generations’ rights and ability to protect themselves, their families, and others, including their country. Then, that extends to protecting other nations.
Across the nation, law-abiding, concerned citizens, train to protect and defend.
We return to following the rabbit of reason. We’ll try it this way. We never see people put on their homes, “This is a gun free zone.” The reason is simple. Even the possibility that guns are in a home is enough to prevent criminals from entering. And people know, if they tell all that no guns are allowed in their homes, that they’ll never be able to sleep. That’s a huge tell. And where law-abiding citizens, armed, are gathered, are prepared, we don’t see criminals attempting robbery. That’s another huge tell. But it’s principle.
If guns weren’t necessary, the police, FBI, military, and other agencies wouldn’t need them. Guns have a purpose. They are necessary. And many a home owner have realized that when needed, not enough time exists to wait for the police or any other to arrive before they must defend themselves. Some stranger is in your house or apartment, and you don’t know what they’re carrying or how many there are. What do you do? What is your training? How are you prepared?
But it’s more. The propaganda. If people thought about it, asking themselves where their beliefs came from, they might start putting two and two together. From that point, should they choose to “practice” at a gun store that allows patrons to “try out” guns, they might further realize they are just tools, like any other tools, but with a purpose to protect.
I have asked that question before. In addition to who’s funding the anti-second amendment commercials, I asked what could their reason be for wanting us not to have the right of self-protection? I will say, following the rabbit, many realizations came to the fore.
As I’ve shared some reasons before, and people can read my previous articles, but also research on their own, I will leave this here.
We became a free nation because the many protected.
