All of you gun control freaks are wrong. 1. Rights are not granted by the Constitution. 2. The Constitution lays out certain rights with which the Government is prohibited from interfering.
He’s known as the Father of the Constitution.
His writings clearly illustrate that he was PRO- GUN OWNERSHIP and that the intent of said gun ownership was to stave off tyranny.
You know….tyranny like #POLICEBRUTALITY, Qualified Immunity, Civil Asset Forfeiture, the War on Drugs, the War on Crime, SWAT teams raiding homes because a family is two months behind on utility bills. Tyranny.
But none of that happens in America.
The CIA has never smuggled drugs into America. The Police and DEA have never been bought off by the Columbian and Mexican Drug Cartels. Al Capone didn’t own half of the judges and police in Chicago.
Nope…none of that ever happened.
An American President has never assassinated a United States Citizen. Nope, Barack Obama would never do that.
America would never go to war based on the lies of a President, Vice President, CIA, NSA and with collusion from foreign national leaders such as Tony Blair.
Nope…that would never happen in America.
Police would never rape citizens in America. Police would never murder citizens in America. Police would never take the money of a Citizen without due process. Police would never falsely charge citizens with crimes in America.
Never in a million years would any of that happen.
The United States Supreme Court would never hand down a ruling that stated something like this:
“Taylor’s shooting was justified not because he posed an actual threat, but because (Officer) Cruz reasonably perceived a threat.”
NOT IN AMERICA!
We’re the land of the free, the home of the brave.
Police officers are NOT responsible for 1 in every 13 gun deaths?
And, of course, James Madison never wrote this:
“Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. And it is not certain, that with this aid alone they would not be able to shake off their yokes. But were the people to possess the additional advantages of local governments chosen by themselves, who could collect the national will and direct the national force, and of officers appointed out of the militia, by these governments, and attached both to them and to the militia, it may be affirmed with the greatest assurance, that the throne of every tyranny in Europe would be speedily overturned in spite of the legions which surround it.”
This is James Madison (as Publius in Federalist Paper #46) supporting the ratification of the present Constitution including the Second amendment.
Yes, America, you are Statist Sheep. You are exactly the Yoked about whom Madison spoke who are too fearful and too lacking in arms to throw off tyranny. This is ESPECIALLY so for those LIBERAL SHEEP who believe in gun control.
