The Reason For The Second Amendment: "Government Is a Fearful Master"


Today our nation is in turmoil due to a mass shooting by people with Mental Health problems. But instead of working to find the root of the Mental Problems that actually caused these problems, our so-called leaders are attacking the results of the problem, “guns”! A gun, no matter what type or where it comes from can do nothing at all as it sits on a shelf or in a gun locker. This inanimate object is the scorn of all Socialist, Communist, Marxist and all others whom hate Freedom and what Guns and the Second Amendment protect. The brave men whom sat down and wrote the Second Amendment knew very well that this one part of the Constitution was the most important part and if this part was destroyed no matter how little, the rest of the Constitution could not stand because the “people” could not defend it without arms to protect what the Second Amendment was placed into the Constitution for, “The right For The people” to keep and bear arms in numbers that would suppress any army wishing to take that freedom away.

Thomas Jefferson, the most famous of the men whom sat down and wrote the Constitution and the Second Amendment stated why the Second Amendment was so very important when he stated:

“For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well organized and armed militia is their best security.” Thomas Jefferson

Many will say that this means the army or other branch of services which defend our nation, but they would be wrong because the branches of service defend our nation on the outside of our shores. Here is why the writers of the Constitution wrote the 4th Amendment, which gives that protection to the “People”. It seems that Thomas Jefferson even had an insight to the reality of today and he showed that the Second Amendment was designed for the “protection’ of the individual from the criminal with harm to life, limb or property.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” Thomas Jefferson

Here, it is like Thomas Jefferson had a glance at the future and saw that an armed citizenry was the best protection from a criminal. But today we have Senators, Representatives, and even the Executive Branch forgetting their oath of office to, “support and defend" and "…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Instead of doing this they are as close to an act of treason as one could get by declaring that they have a right to change what the Constitution means and was written to mean. Anyone who takes positive action to counter the Constitution as it was written is and should be considered an enemy to the freedom we as a nation love so very dearly. It is up to us, “We the People” to ensure that the Constitution is Not destroyed by those whom have “opinions” that the people should not be armed.

"Our attachment to no nation upon earth should supplant our attachment to liberty." - Declaration of the Causes and Necessity for Taking Up Arms, June 26-July 6, 1775
Thomas Jefferson

Here it is very clear as to yet another reason why Thomas Jefferson and all the others found it most necessary to have a Second Amendment for the people in order to preserve a free state. This is why the people have the right to bear arms. Our worst enemy is sitting on our shores and we are allowing them to attempt to dictate to us what citizens can and cannot do in regards to keeping and bearing arms. The United Nations is one of those pushing to disarm every law abiding citizen so they can take over the United States with international law that destroys our liberties, freedom and sovereignty!

Our very first President seems to have had the idea and insight to what is now going on in our nation; the very nation he helped develop. George Washington stated:

“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, Farewell Address, Sep. 17, 1796

Washington knew that one day the very government he fought to establish would become a monster that would seek to eliminate the Constitution and our freedom. This seems to be starting today with high officials ignoring the Constitution and doing all they can by going from place to place and agitate the people to do their will. This is what a modern day King George would have done. He would have been much like Obama today; a tyrant with no concern for the people or the Constitution, which gave the power to the People.

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.

GEORGE WASHINGTON, attributed, Upton Sinclair's The Cry for Justice

Our First President knew that if the government took over certain areas they had no business in that the people would become the servants to the government and it almost looks like the people are very close to becoming the people chained to servitude, rather than freedom!

Just how much longer are we the Citizens of the United States going to allow the United Nations to stay on our soil and attempt to dictate to us? I say,

"Let Freedom Ring from every church tower, every corner, and if anyone does not like the ringing of liberty from the streets of the United States, than they should silently leave!"

This is our nation; our United States. If Obama, Feinstein, Jackson Lee, Boxer, Schumer, and all those who seem to hate our rights under the Second Amendment don’t like what our Constitution states, they are free to leave at any time and should do so as fast as they can, for we have no place in these United States for traitors!

    It is important to include the UN in things to resist as they have been pursuing soft policy for years, weedling their way into our towns and cities with pablum programs that add up to their Agenda 21. ICLEI is the program that is most wide spread and should be canceled in the 100+ towns that have agreed to this insidious plan.

    RIght now the UN is using SWAT-style force to make people in a town in Brazil dismantle their own house and leave, with no place to go. The UN is doing this Draconian inhumane act claiming to be returning the land to the natives who originally lived there. It makes no difference, however, that these natives no longer exist. So, the result is to return land to its wild state (their actual goal worldwide) at the cost of forcibly ejecting people from their homes. That's the UN, keeping "peace" with the barrel of a gun!

    obama kills 1.6 million babies a year with abortion ,,, in 2010 8,659 people died of gun violence in the united states,, so it looks as though we should BAN ABORTION and KEEP our GUNS..!

  • average joe

    America is under attack. Do you dissagree with that statement? You are part of the problem. We need to be ready to pull the trigger.

    Why else do you think THE FRAUD had our Marines REMOVE THE BOLTS from their guns for the Innaugaration??

  • nanblan

    Besides the fact that they want to take our guns, the federal government is doing the opposite. They've been building up their own arsenal substantially, including both weapons and ammunition, and for what reason?

    That's enough to definitely make me fear my "master."

    All comments are now of no value. We have allowed the irresponsible the vote. We now are ruled by nefarious miscreants installed by the votes of these unpatriotic cretins.

  • freedomringsforall

    We must exercise our rights to make them stronger.

    We are one step away from a total dictatorship.

    Having been a reader since (only) Dec. 2012, I have a lot respect for Tim Brown and Freedom Outpost. I am very concerned that an article on this website starts off with a statement like "working to find the root of the Mental Problems". I understand that guns are not the problem and the wrong focus. Let's be careful that we are not propagating another fallacy by stating that "mental problems" are the root. Fallen man is the root and sin is the cause. Let us not be deceived by eloquent speech.

    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents,
    unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others
    who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.

    You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
    Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
    With guns, we are 'citizens' Without them, we are 'subjects'.
    During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
    If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun-control message to all of your friends.
    The purpose of fighting is to win.
    There is no possible victory in defense.
    The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either.
    The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
    SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
    SWITZERLAND 'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

    IT'S A NO BRAINER!

    DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN

    AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

    I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!

    The Militia's main purpose should be to defend ourselves and the Constitution.

  • http://needlesclimbers.blogspot.com Michael McQuarrie

    So let us create a nationwide people's Militia and begin organizing. It should be free to join, run and organized by volunteer's.

    The more citizens who are legally armed, the less control the govt. can have over them. That's simple enough for anyone to understand, unless you happen to be a liberal. There are any number of examples around the world where we have seen this happen. Disarm the people, or bar them from owning weapons, and then simply take full control of them. That is why the Left is fighting so hard to disarm the American people. And, don't ever be so foolish as to think they will stop trying.
