Americans Arming Themselves With Coming Ban On Guns

Western Journalism

In 1833, thirty-four year member of the Supreme Court Joseph Story wrote: “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium of the liberties of a republic.”

2nd-amendment

That “palladium of liberties” has never been exercised more frequently than during the four years Barack Hussein Obama has been in the White House. According to the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), “…the top 10 record gun sales days have occurred since Barack Obama’s election in 2008, and gun ownership has skyrocketed over the last four years.”

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) reports that in 1944 there were approximately 192 million firearms owned by 44 million Americans. By the end of 1996, the ATF reports that “…approximately 242 million firearms were available for sale to or were possessed by civilians in the United States.”  In 2007, that number had increased to 294 million. Clearly there are now well over 300 million firearms in the hands of  American citizens, all thanks to concern that the far-left Administration is a threat to 2nd Amendment and other rights of the American people.

A week ago, Mark Alexander of The Patriot Post was asked “…if Patriots have an obligation to arm themselves — to be gun owners, and be proficient at the use of arms.” He responds by saying it is “self-evident” that Liberty is an “unalienable right,” innately assured as “endowed by our creator…” That is, “it is not awarded by men or government; it is the birthright of all people.”

Throughout history, countless individuals have assaulted those rights “…using the power of government to arbitrarily revoke Liberty and invoke tyranny…” In defense of that liberty, James Madison wrote in the Federalist # 46, that “the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition.”

Barack Obama has proven himself a would-be dictator in virtually every executive order and end-run around the authority of the Congress. But his ambition for unlimited presidential power can only be fully realized upon the disarming of the American public. Understanding this, millions of Americans have armed themselves in anticipation of an eventual, outright ban on gun ownership.

But as Americans, are we compelled to do more than just own firearms? Are we also obligated, as a result of our unique heritage, to use those weapons against any force which threatens the annihilation of our rights and liberty?

Two hundred and forty years ago, approximately one third of colonists took up arms against the British, one third joined the Brits against the revolution and the rest remained neutral. After two centuries of American history and the death of countless men in battle for the preservation of the rights and liberty earned in the Revolution, the time for neutrality or for joining those who would destroy that liberty is over.

Just as millions of arms have been collected in anticipation of an Obama led assault on our God-given rights, it is incumbent upon Americans to use those arms when the time comes. Those who refuse to do so will no longer be Americans, they will be the enemy.

  1. Thank you for the last 2 sentences! They are in direct agreement with my feelings and preparation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Us Patriots have been getting ready for awhile. I don’t know who Barry thinks will enforce disarming law abiding American Citizens- he pissed off(and on) the military repeatedly, and most local law enforcement see what’s happening(ex- Sherrif Joe Arpaio) and not only wouldn’t do it but are stocking up themselves. Now of course they can get some brave, trained, STUPID operators to give me a visit, and Im sure they’ll get mine- but only after one hell of a fight and massive losses. Real Americans won’t give up their guns or rights. We took out terrorists before, along with dictators and the like. This is just another face of it in action. There is a reason the sales are going up- people are waking up. What the government boys don’t realize is just how many UN-Registered guns there are, passed down through families and from private sales. He really better think this one through before he does it, because once we start we wont stop till the job is done.

    • The sheep will give up their guns but the Patriots will stand up for America, Freedom, Liberty and the Constitution.

    • I like your post d1969 and I agree! But he plans to use UN troops as I have seen articles about 2 years old referencing this! They do not care about our rights and they are essentially mercanaries! Paid to kill! They were at one time referred to as peace keeping forces but that was and is a load of bullshit!

  3. I look at it this way. The south is full of hunters. long distance, 100-600 yard kills with one shot from a large caliber rifle. Add to that the returning vets and all the gun shows. The Southern U.S. isn’t the place for this kind of crap. We know how to shoot to kill with one shot, set very effective traps, live off the land, and have a vast family and friend network. UN troops wouldnt stand a chance.

  4. One more thing- the second UN Troops hit the ground in the US, all bets are off. It’s officially war. If Barry wants to play this game he better be ready.
