What Part of "Infringed" Don't You Understand?by Will Ghormley on 01/02/13
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights
First, the use of the word “people” in the Second Amendment refers to each citizen individually. If the framers of the Bill of Rights had meant the American people as a whole, they would have used the proper grammatical term for the people as a whole, “peoples”. Therefore, this is an individual right, not a corporate right.
Second, the Second Amendment deals with the “right” of the people to keep and bear arms. A right is not a law that can be changed by a capricious government. The American peoples’ unalienable rights are granted by The Creator, not our government. In fact, the Declaration of Independence states that to “secure” these unalienable rights, governments were formed. The government didn’t give us our rights, our Constitution and Bill of Rights only codified them as the law-of-the-land. The government can’t take away our rights or make them illegal, it can only oppress them. The oppression of civil rights is an assault on the Constitution by enemies of the Constitution. It is violence against Liberty by the enemies of Liberty. If our government deigns to nullify our rights or make the exercise of our rights a lawless act, then our government itself has become lawless and an openly hostile enemy of our Constitution and our very form of government.
Thirdly, to infringe on any right is to actively break the terms of the right, to limit or undermine the right, or to encroach upon the right. Any “law” the United States government tries to pass that would actively break the terms of our right to keep and bear arms, to limit our possession of arms, to undermine our right to keeps arm, or in any way to encroach upon our Liberty to obtain and possess arms, is an assault on the Constitution. To assault the Constitution and the Liberties of the citizenry, is to become an enemy of the Constitution and Liberty.
There are elements of our governing body who are enemies of
the Constitution and Liberty! It is time
we boldly stand up and brand them for what they really are! They are domestic enemies of Liberty, the
Constitution, and the American way of life.
We must not lose this battle, or we may very well lose our Country! If our lawless government tries to take our arms, we have no recourse but to bear our arms!
