"Beliefs are negotiable. Convictions are not. Convictions are based on Truth that can only come from understanding. Understanding is derived from the testing of knowledge, ideas and perceptions which give birth to experience."
Gun Control is about hitting the target every time.
The right to keep and bear arms is non-negotiable. Any conversation to the contrary is not worth dignifying with a comment. The government shall not touch the arms of the people.
The right to keep and bear arms does not originate with or have its source in the 2nd article in amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Rather, the right to keep and bear arms is property. It is an inherent, unalienable right, as absolute as your right arm. It can no more be taken away from you, lawfully, than the government, by statute, can authorize your arm to be cut off. Period!
According to the Preamble of the Bill of Rights, the 2nd amendment is a restriction on the power granted to the government by the constitution. Read it again with this in mind. “A well regulated militia, necessary for the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” 2nd Article in Amendment to the Federal Constitution.
The property right is also protected by the Bill of Rights of the Colorado Constitution, Article II Sections 13, 25 and 28. Here is a copy of the Colorado Constitution! Check it out yourself!
Those who understand that it is the state militia being referred to in the 2nd amendment, better get their mind around why the Militia Act of 1903 is void on the unconstitutional ground that it deprives the States of their Sovereignty, the ability to control their sword, i.e. the ability to protect themselves from unlawful, abusive federal encroachment against the States.
This is an unconstitutional law, ripe for nullification by the States.
The point of the 2nd Amendment? In the words of Thomas Jefferson: “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”Read More
Well, he’ll have three silver dollars in his jeans pocket because they represent substance and value, real coinage according to the United States Constitution, and he’ll start a conversation by showing them to you. He carries a pocket Constitution he can nearly recite verbatim and probably an extra one that he’ll insist on giving to you to keep. In his backpack is his Colorado State Constitution, cover wrinkled, stained, corners bent and pages marked because he’s read it, studied it, taught it and debated it for more than 20 years. He is the state representative that will read each bill in its entirety and won’t need a lawyer or a special interest lobby group to understand what impact it will likely have on the People.Read More
