The Militia Mentioned In The 2nd Amendment = All The Citizens

America was founded on the idea that every person should be guaranteed life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and that government should not impede their will or political motive on you. At the time this was written in 1776 the idea was novel – previously all people were subjects of the state and the state did as it wished. For the first time in history people were being deemed more powerful than the government.

As part of that promise the newly founded American government wanted to ensure that it never got out of hand and if it did that it’s citizens would be able to keep it in check. To keep it in check the first right they gave them was the First Amendment. In this right they allowed the people to tell their government that they were being wronged and to petition for a change in government. Secondly they gave the people the Second Amendment. In this right they allowed the people to bear arms equal to the government in so that if it ever got out of control or slipped back into tyranny the people (the real government) could physically fight them and change their government.

The Second Amendment as it was authenticated by the Secretary of State reads, “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.” The co-author of the Second Amendment, George Mason, at the Convention to ratify the Consitution said, “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” If one knows history the right to bear arms isn’t a state militia but rather an individual having the right to bear arms because an unarmed citizen was what Kings and Queen had – an enslaved subject.

It has now been over 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own governme…nt, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. (Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are gua ranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in ‘successfully ridding Australian society of guns….’ You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it’s too late!
Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in?

Quotes:

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
