Will the gun rights issue be the tipping point for the American public, (over half of which voted for the alien traitor in the White House)? One major issue after another, robbing Americans of Constitutional rights, has passed before the treacherous Congress of the United States, and no successful effort has been made. Will the gun control laws be the straw that breaks the camel’s back?
Since 2001, I have written about gun rights. My very first article for FrontPageMagazine.com was “Warriors and Weapons,” January 26, 2001.
I published many since. I developed a speech for Young America’s Foundation called “He Who Takes My Weapon Is My Enemy,” (last delivered at Oberlin College, December 3, 2007). “The Christian Case Against Gun Control,” was published in FrontPage on April 7, 2004. (This article has references to early American gun laws.) I developed a speech called, “Can A Christian Pull the Trigger?” This was one of my most popular speeches when I was on the lecture circuit. I wrote other articles on guns.

Certainly in American history, having a gun, and knowing how to use it and care for it, was part of what it meant to be a man. There was a time when this was required by law. In that day, the rifle was hung above the hearth, right above the Bible.
For an Indian brave, the artful use of weapons was the definition of the warrior. Weapons were always carried about on the person. It was part of the dress. One wouldn’t dare be caught without a weapon.
Somewhere along the line of American cultural history, the division of labor won out. Defense was assigned to a special group, a sheriff, police, army, etc. The responsibility of self-defense, as well as national defense, was cast off on others, on “professionals,” whose entire job was to bear the arms.
Thus, the individual members of society were left defenseless, and harmless, or so the early liberals esteemed them.
Today, the tyrannists in Washington are determined to remove as many weapons from society as possible. It’s all about safety, according to their passionate propaganda. Patriots know it’s all about tyranny, and disarming the public, so that the Communist Democrat tyrannists can have full control over the “sheep.”
Insane, murderous shootings are nearly a daily occurrence about now. The liberals determined that the mentally ill all had “rights” to freedom, and so the crazies are taking up weapons and murdering people–like jihadists. (Surely, from avid media coverage of Muslim murders, the mentally ill have taken their cue to significance.) So, one liberal tenet (mentally ill “rights”) strengthens another (gun control). All things work together for them that love death. (And that’s not even counting the lethal liberal agenda of abortion.)
I see, once again, that conservative talk is ineffective. The tide of tyranny rises, continually. There is no help in Washington. A voice like Michele Bachmann’s is drowned out. Remember, Obama was elected twice.
Just take it from an Indian: never, ever surrender your weapon. It means defeat. It means you acknowledge the superior force of him to demands your weapon. Unless you’re ready to do that, hold on to that weapon. It is about personal defense now, against enemies–foreign and domestic, against illegal immigrant (Mexican and Muslim) and obviously the Communist Democrats running the United States government. This is where we are.
I don’t know that the gun control issue will turn the tide. I don’t know that weapons will once again define patriotism. I know that without weapons, the people are sheep to be slaughtered. Yes, you can surrender, but you’ll likely be slaughtered anyway.
