"What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment
of a standing army, the bane of liberty. ...Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins."

--Elbridge Gerry, spoken during floor debate over the Second Amendment,  I Annals of Congress at 750, August 17, 1789

The point of the 2A isn't to have an armed govt & an armed people. The point is to disarm the govt while arming & organizing the people to defend themselves. Those of you who support the troops & LEOs don't get the 2A & unwittingly support tyranny.

Thanks to all you guys who sacrificed time with friends/family (and to those who have their lives!) to do a tough job and keep freedom. And although you don't like what this guy is saying you still protect his right to say it that's honorable.

I see a lot of posts praising the military. This is misguided. What the discussion should be about is disarming the government. There is a massive imbalance between the power of the government and the power of the people.  Not only the military but the law enforcement establishments here are overwhelmingly strong. We need to start shifting power away from the government by putting these functions back in the people’s hands where they belong. One of the lesser known Founders, Tench Coxe, explained it well. Picking up on the same theme as Mao he wrote:

"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom… Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American ... the unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."

There is only one way to guarantee our lives and liberty. That is to be stronger than those who seek to take them are.

This is why the Founders warned us against having a standing army. They knew that such a force would be used to oppress.  Today, the “standing army” that we have to worry about domestically is the huge law enforcement establishment. I’m talking about not only state and local police but also agencies like the Internal Revenue Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and ad nauseum. Rather than deploy troops on the streets they use law enforcement to control us. While these agencies exist our liberty will always be in danger.
Unfortunately, no discussion of gun rights can take place these days without talking about the horrible murders at Newtown, CT last year. My heartfelt condolences go out to the families and friends of the victims as well as my sympathies to the survivors and the rest of that community for having ...

Safe Haven: Gun Free Zones in America

Hosted by Katie Pavlich, Safe Haven looks at the history of gun free zones and their effect on crime prevention; not only with mass shootings, but individual crimes where the presence of a legal firearm was denied by law. Recent studies by Purdue University and the FBI shed new light on the effectiveness these laws have, as well as offer insight on what can be done to minimize their deadly cost. Using original interviews with victims of crime in gun free zones, as well as politicians and commentators, Safe Haven asks the question: Do gun free zones work, or are we creating an environment for evil to run rampant.

Not the ghost of George Washington but the spirit of Machiavelli.
Although the United States became an empire unintentionally, it must learn to act like one.

This goes along with Patrick Henry's not so well known speech arguing against the CONstitution "Shall Liberty or Empire Be Sought?"

"When the American spirit was in its youth, the language of America was different: liberty, sir, was then the primary object...by that spirit we have triumphed over every difficulty. But now, sir, the American spirit, assisted by the ropes and chains of consolidation, is about to convert this country into a powerful and mighty empire...Such a government is incompatible with the genius of republicanism. There will be no checks, no real balances, in this government. What can avail your specious, imaginary balances, your rope-dancing, chain-rattling, ridiculous ideal checks and contrivances? But, sir, we are not feared by foreigners; we do not make nations tremble. Would this constitute happiness, or secure liberty?"

No, it will destroy liberty.

While little ole me did something like this last year http://www.theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2014/11/gun-laws-and-murder-rates_20.html I'm glad one of the bigger players in the gun rights movement stepped up to counter the gun grabbers lies.

Liberty is a package, you can't pick & choose. Defend all rights or loose them all. Ending the war on drugs & ending the war on guns go hand in hand.

I'm not a fan of this guy Chris Cantwell, I've seen him be reckless at times with a firearm, and his brand of macho liberty dickishness isn't the best way to spread the ideas of freedom. That said, he did well in this situation. Attacked by multiple people, he was forced to pull his firearm. No one got shot, and that's not a bad conclusion.
