Two Supreme Courts Justices Defend the 2nd Amendment: With a world at war, guns are the only thing keeping peace

Once again, the Supreme Court punted on several lower court challenges in the year of 2020, but not at a complete loss. Justices Clarence Thomas and Brett Kavanagh defended the 2nd Amendment and the very conscious decision the Supreme Court has made to not take up gun rights cases over the last decade to defend that amendment properly. There has been for a long time, and still is today a fantasy from institutionalized society that government can manage everything, yet as we are currently in the middle of World War III, all pretense of such a concept has been thoroughly destroyed. We are used to thinking of wars as battles organized by armies where wills are pushed until someone gives up. That has been the way human beings have fought for thousands of years. But that has changed recently, wars are now fought on the battlefields of the media and the purpose of capitulation has changed to reputations instead of actual lives. Instead of killing people, these new attackers fight to keep us from even being born and if we are, they seek to weaken all individuals through collective influence. The end game for the attackers is to institutionalize everything so that a central authority can literally rule the world and in this last year of President Trump’s first term in the White House, we have seen everything and to what extent the attackers of American sovereignty are willing to do to advance their position. And the only thing that has stopped them has been the Second Amendment. So the defense of that amendment of our Constitutional Bill of Rights comes at a good time from our highest court and should serve as a platform of understanding in the future.

I will go as far to say that both major tragedies of 2020, the government lockdowns of our entire economy and the race riots, were military attacks, not tragedies. They were instigated by institutional challenges to authority by government seeking to erode individual freedom for the service of the state. We do have domestic enemies in America, and we have been slow to admit as much to ourselves. We want to trust our government. We want to believe that our institutions are designed to serve our needs as people. We want to believe that our friends and neighbors have the best of intentions. But if they do not honor our flag, our agreement to the rules of the Constitution as a foundation of law, then we are a nation at war. It may not be the kind of civil war that we had in the past where Republicans worked to free slaves from aristocratic Democrats in the South where the battles were fought on actual battlefields and guns were used to destroy lives to the extent that one side would eventually be forced to surrender by running out of people to fight. This new kind of war is fought on the level of people’s lives where freedoms are robbed at the most fundamental decision levels and an ancient appeasement of the great gods of government are the goals of the day.

I often talk about guns as an advancement of civilization while the anti-gunners are seeking to keep mankind chained to the aristocracy of the past, where institutions meant more than individual liberty. The trouble with that mentality is that every society on the face of the earth that has adhered to those rules has perished—the Persian Empires, the dynasties of Egypt, China—the kingdoms of Europe, the great empires of North America before the Indians divided up into many tribes of nomads—the patterns are all over the earth and to my thoughts, were best chronicled in the great book by James Joyce, ‘Finnegan’s Wake.’ Joyce made a great observation when he wrote that fantastic book that many consider to be the most challenging book to read in the history of the world. I spent ten years reading it, and came eventually to understand that the entire purpose of the book was to preserve the history of the world as a kind of skeleton key to all society because of the trends of the Vico Cycle, the tendency that all institutionalized society has to move through four cycles of evolution, theocracy, aristocracy, democracy only to destroy it all to start from the beginning through anarchy. That is the cycle of every institutionalized society and has been with us since likely the age of the dinosaurs, even before it perhaps. Joyce wanted to capture our current history within the puzzles of his book because from the vantage point of Ireland during the pre-industrial age, it looked like mankind was poised to crawl back into the caves of Neanderthals and to begin again as a theocratic society once anarchy and war destroyed all human progress up to that point.

But the invention of the gun has given individuals the ability to say no to that institutional tendency and that Vico Cycle has been stopped by American society, which has made it the enemy of the world that wants desperately to follow that cycle back to the beginning to begin completely again once anarchists have destroyed all current progress, to our medical advances to our very obvious advances to get off earth and start migrating into space. When people talk about guns as some relic of the past, some stigma that puts individual liberty over the goals of the state and speaks of that as if it were selfish, and even evil, what they are really saying is that individuals must give up their thoughts, feelings and ambitions to the needs of a collective state as they had in the past—because those attackers literally want to go back to a society of theocracy where they can rule easily over mankind in the traditional way—because that way of life isn’t so scary to them—they understand it. This rule by the gun and the advancement of individual liberty is a new concept in the world—only 300 to 400 years old, and the old institutionalists are oblivious as to what will happen next, and they are terrified of it.

And when they made their latest global attack with coronavirus to shut down the entire economies of the world, and when that didn’t stop individual will, they provoked these race riots to corral up minds into groups of skin color and tried to use that to push people back to a primitive state of anarchy to collapse everything back into a theocracy, it was gun ownership in America that stopped the spread and maintained civility. It is gun ownership that prevents institutionalists from advancing their plots of menace through anarchy toward a social rebirth into a theocratic culture, which has been done in the past so many times that history has long forgotten the beginning. When people can defend themselves from faulty governments and institutions destined from failure, then the power of the state has been taken away and is truly governed by the people of a republic instead of another failed democracy, and the potential of free minds everywhere is unleashed to its full potential, which is obvious by the antics of SpaceX and several other positive achievements that are blooming in spite of the obvious institutional failures that are obvious to us all. The separation between failure and its corrosive following is that the ownership of guns keeps the chain reaction from reaching all people and allows them to be independent of failure which is the heart of the Second Amendment. And its good that at least two Supreme Court judges understand that.

A Hung Effigy of Governor Andy Breshear: We don’t need parents in government, we need represenatives

I’ve had to explain it too many times to people from outside our state of Ohio, and with them knowing that its not uncommon for me to associate with politicians, especially at a high level, that Mike DeWine is a Republican in name only. Governor DeWine is not a rock star in political circles and is essentially a crotchety old man who falls off the mark quickly if things get too complicated. My idea of a good Republican governor in the wake of a Covid-19 measurement is Kristi Noem of South Dakota. She handled the coronavirus correctly, as did several of the other governors in more populous states, like Georgia and South Carolina. When DeWine won out in the primary I supported him because he had the “R” next to his name but I wanted Mary Taylor. My expectation of Republican leadership is someone like Kristi Noem, in just about every situation and Mary likely would have given Ohio that. But as I explained, DeWine lost me when he shut down the bars and restaurants back in March of 2020 forever and that is the difference between Republicans and Democrats. Republicans do vet their own while Democrats hang together like frat boys who screwed the same stripper at an initiation party. They never turn on each other. But Republicans do because they have values and when politicians go astray, there are consequences that conservatives are quick to express. Democrats don’t stand for values, so they don’t use them to measure behavior. Its that simple.

That is why even as I do speak with respectable Republicans about their division over what’s happening in Kentucky as protestors over the weekend erected an effigy of the tyrant governor, Andy Breshear at the state capital of the dictator hanging from a tree with the statement “sic semper tryannis” painted upon it, I side clearly with the protestors and my opinion of any Republican coming out against that action as weak. I don’t really care what history did at some point in the Civil War and whether or not a party comes down on the side of Lincoln or the rebels of that time period, we are living history now. We just went through the most stupid thing that humans have ever done to themselves across the world with the reaction to Covid-19 shutting down the economy all over earth over nothing, so the context of history is being written. You can’t study something like this in a book, there is no precedence for this level of stupidity, and people victimized by the idiotic behavior of these politicians wants somebody’s ass to pay for all the misery they caused. And who could blame them? It doesn’t matter that Mike DeWine is a Republican, or that Andy Breshear is a Democrat, they both became tyrants against constitutional concepts and they broke the law as the top lawmakers in their states—and for that there is either going to be an ass-kicking, or a change inspired through elections. Something must happen and the longer it doesn’t, people are going to get more and more angry.

The media position in this incident is all wrong, to use peer pressure to inspire behavioral change in the protestors by saying both Republicans and Democrats condemn this behavior of hanging an effigy of Breshear in a tree as a warning. Nobody cares what Republicans and Democrats think if those people don’t do the job they were elected to do and that is to manage their offices that they hold without bringing trouble to the people who elected them. When governors take it upon themselves to interpret their jobs to be parents of everyone, well, they have failed to do honor to their office and must be held accountable. Breshear has been following DeWine in Ohio for most of the Covid-19 shutdowns and going further just to put a liberal spin on things, and that has really crippled Kentucky. What Breshear has been doing has been madness to put it lightly. But so is what DeWine has done and both of these governors have been getting off easy to only have minor threats against them made with something like these effigies. To infringe upon constitutional liberties of people really is an act of war of a loser government against the people its supposed to protect. Protecting people from a silly, overblown virus is not in the oath that the governors take. Protecting their rights to the constitution is, and when they openly violate that, they are opening themselves up to the wrath of a very angry people. Nobody cares what Mitch McConnnell thinks about the effigy against Breshear. Nobody needs a lecture on the First Amendment, but politicians do need a lecture on the 2nd. There is a place for hate in this world and when politicians take advantage of the trust that voters put into them, and when politicians destroy jobs and livelihoods of people and their families, you bet your ass that there is room for hate.

This is the same Breshear who had police writing down the license plates of people attending church services during Easter Sunday services. Without the threats of violence, people like Breshear hide behind the law his desire for complete dictatorship over the people he’s supposed to protect, then blames it on concern for their safety. People see through that and they are angry, and they damn well should be. The 2nd Amendment isn’t for hunting rabbits, its for taking back our government from people like Breshear, DeWine and that crazy lunatic in Michigan Gretchen Whitmer. All those governors have shown that they will violate the state and federal constitutions on a whim and they need to understand that if they break the law that there will be ramifications. When people lose faith in the law and the courts, they will turn to guns and violence. That is part of the deal and is the last line of defense in any constitutional debate. All politicians should understand this basic agreement and know that if they lose themselves to power, then people will be coming after them.

The fear that politicians and members of the media are expressing is that civility is how they gain their power. When people see that civility is being used against them to destroy their lives, as has been the case across the world over Covid-19, then their only recourse is violent rebellion. Everyone should give people credit for hanging an effigy and expressing their anger before actually going through with such a violent task. The warning should be appreciated, not demeaned. Breshear should consider himself lucky that the people of Kentucky gave him a warning before ripping his ass out of his bed at night to throw him out of office. Because honestly, the people of Kentucky have that right due to the gross violations to their constitutional sanctity. It doesn’t matter if it’s a Republican or a Democrat who committed the crime, people have a right to be pissed off about it, and what we do from here on out will make history. Because what brought us here is so bad, there is no precedent to reflect on. Compliance is not an option when politicians break the law, no matter how much for our own good they think they were acting. We didn’t elect parents to run our government, we elected representatives. But when those representatives start acting like dictators, well, that’s when things must change no matter what means is necessary to achieve it. Politicians need to stop lecturing us like parents and start listening as representatives. If people are that mad that they’ll hang such an effigy that should be a valued warning that all elected officials should pay attention to. There is no law to protect them when they go so far to step over the law to satisfy some desire for power at the expense of the people they are supposed to be representing.

Of Course People Took Guns to the Capital: We’re not playing patty cake with the Constitution

This has been a stunning week, the notion that liberals have which assumes that people with guns should not storm their capitals and demand justice as they did recently in Michigan protesting the governor there, and in Ohio in front of Amy Acton’s house, who has been the health director of Mike DeWine, the out of control governor who really started the lockdown movement in the United States, is completely wrong. When the laws of a republic do not work, then what did anybody think the recourse would be? Compliance? Give me a break, surely people weren’t that stupid. It is an obligation of all Americans to defend the Constitution of the United States and if forces, such as progressives, try to change the law through executive orders, emergency powers, or other back door antics of imperilment, then it is a mandate for people to defend themselves with that last line of defense referred to as the 2nd Amendment. If the 1st Amendment fails, the 2nd is there to protect the rest. Because if the 2nd goes, so does the rest of the Constitution. I was most stunned that Sean Hannity came out against the protestors with guns at the Michigan capital. He obviously is missing a few parts of the story as he has been lock step with President Trump in getting suckered into the whole Covid-19 thing. I can’t blame someone for not knowing something if they don’t have the intellectual means of obtaining the information. But he should understand that Covid-19 was never about a virus, it was a progressive attack against our Constitution and that imposition is a mandate for us to defend it against that attack. And that’s what people bringing guns to the protests were doing, and thankfully they didn’t have to use them.

Like most of what comes out of the progressive movement, they didn’t think everything through. While its true, most Americans were quick to follow orders and listen to the authorities and hide in their homes to avoid spreading a virus, or to wear masks for the benefit of others, there were enough Americans who could see what was happening to provide a proper resistance, and that aggression is far from over. We gave it a few weeks, like any good society should, but once it was realized that the whole Covid-19 outbreak was a political stunt launched from China and the World Health Organization’s most activist members, many Americans were ready to fight, and that is the reason we have guns in this country. Lots of them. And we will continue to have them or there will be a real fight, a bloody one, because that is the reason there is a 2nd Amendment in the first place, for just these kinds of attacks.

Yes, Covid-19 was an attack on the American way of life. Taking guns to a protest was not a political stunt, it was a warning, that violence could come next and that we are ready to take the fight to the enemy—domestic enemies. If there was anything good that came out of the coronavirus pandemic it was that the enemies of the American Constitution came out in the open thinking they had won the day, and that there would be a “new normal” where the American Constitution would be surpassed by some new guidelines written by the United Nations and flowing down through the World Health Organization and into the global society as a whole. At that point Americans would be considered just another member of the global citizen network. There are many progressives who already call themselves that, and they were betting that this coronavirus would be the straw that broke the camel’s back. Until protestors showed up with their guns.

Believe me, that’s the last thing I want to see happen, where we have to pull the trigger on others to defend our Constitution. But, if the American Constitution is no longer the law, then I’ll have to. And I will lead others to the cause, and the other side will not win. I’d rather do thousands of other things, like ride roller coasters at Kings Island, have breakfast at Cracker Barrel, and enjoy a shopping experience at Dillard’s with my wife buying new $200 ties. That’s the American life I signed up for and I agree to live by the rules of the Constitution in peace so long as everyone else does too. But when you see judges like the one in Dallas, Texas who sent a salon owner to jail for opening her business against his orders, then a fight is on the horizon if those progressive forces do not come back into the fold of law that the Constitution affords them. Without that piece of paper written that founded America, there is no reason otherwise to have a peaceful exchange with them as they incur themselves upon our rights, even during some emergency consideration. Progressives do not have a right to tell me what to do any day of the week and if they throw themselves in front of my path, they will be run over. Not my fault, I’m living by the Constitution. If they step away from it, that’s their problem.

And I was glad to see I wasn’t alone. It was good to see that there were enough Americans out there that were not suckers that maybe bloodshed could be avoided. God bless that Texas salon owner Shelley Luther who defied an unjust mandate by a corrupt legal system. Someone from our ranks had to do it and suffer the consequences. What she did took guts, and to be honest, it probably saved lives. GOD BLESS HER! In my own thinking, I’ve been waiting for Trump to catch on and fix this mess. I understand how he got roped into it, but without a president who might turn it around, I have been thinking what strategies needed to happen next and how to implement them. But yielding to progressives in obedience was never in the cards, and it never will be for me. I hope the day never comes, but there were 7 or 8 times over the last couple of months where it came damn close. Luckily, I live in an area with a good sheriff, a strong conservative political party, and a lot of people who think the way I do when pressed.

So it was never a surprise to me that people showed up with guns to draw that line in the sand. The Constitution requires them to defend it that way. What was a surprise was that progressives were so baffled by it. It was as if such a thing was not in their thoughts when they planned this whole damn thing. I think its safe to say that it should be obvious to everyone why they want to get rid of the 2nd Amendment. But its obvious they didn’t understand how deeply connected people relate the 2nd Amendment to their Constitutional rights, which all progressives want to “progress” beyond. It appears they underestimated the resolve of Americans. Not everyone is so educated and resolute, most just want to live their lives as I described. But when you take that life away from them, they will grab their guns and force change on the stupid politicians who caused the mess and disrupted their happiness. And they should. That is part of the wonder of being free. Now that some portion of humankind has experienced that freedom, its not going back into the long history of misery that came out of that bottle which progressivism wants us all to drink from. Gunfire will happen before progressivism takes over America—it has to.

“Social Distancing” was always a Scam: The new kind of terrorists in the world

My job in life is a problem solver and what I do on this site for free is because I enjoy helping people who can’t help themselves. I would not limit myself to an overly specialized field of understanding, such as to be a doctor. I would be bored out of my mind for one, and two, I wouldn’t be able to solve very many problems because often to do so, you must understand a great many things to create solutions and that is not the life of a doctor. What is sad is that this ability, the problem solver ability used to be common in America, but after listening to opinions from “experts” about the six foot distancing rule that has spawned from the coronavirus outbreak its quite obvious that the problem of dealing with Covid-19 was too far out of the scope of most people and anything that did not follow the dialogue has been considered a conspiracy theory by both Republicans and Democrats. Thankfully, Rush Limbaugh gets it and I was happy that he beat me to the punch on talking about the ridiculous nature of the “social distancing” policy that was created to give politicians more time to paint the Covid-19 virus to be more of a threat for their objectives than it really was. And they did that by tricking us to “flatten the curve” by artificially making the curve look worse with bad numbers from the World Health Organization, then prolonging the effects of the virus to justify the shutting down of the world economy. It was a massive hoax that goes well beyond the most audacious conspiracy theory except for those who can see the really big picture. Rush Limbaugh says pretty much what I have been saying about this whole matter in hour three of his April 9th show which can be viewed below.

It should be obvious to everyone that the resistance to the drug Hydroxycloroquine and azithroymycin is because to the eye of any problem solver, not a specialized doctor with political agendas, it was a quick solution from a fast acting President of the United States who wanted to put an end to the virus outbreak that was shutting down the economy, where a solution was not wanted by people like Dr. Fauci from the CDC. What he and big activist donors wanted was a means to shut down the world with a power that had never been tried before from the academic class that was heavily radicalized toward leftist causes. They were essentially Antifa but in suits and ties instead of the gear of anarchy. Most people have been trained in our society to trust what these people say, so that was the cause of the paralysis psychologically, and its why the attackers are very happy with the results of Covid-19, only that it appears to be much less deadly than they had hoped, because it’s tough to make a story out of a subpar virus and to convince people that it’s deadly when it wasn’t. The global numbers will be well under a typical virus and the only reason we are still talking about coronavirus is because we interfered with the herd immunity that naturally occurs with these things. The natural way to deal with these matters is for humans to get it, and get over it. The spread would stop by immune systems developing a resistance and if we had not interfered, Covid-19 would have died in March all on its own. Instead, we introduced social distancing to slow the spread not to save lives, but to make the story last longer for the advocates of changes to world economics through pandemic emergencies.

Once they “the experts” got our attention and froze our actions by associating everything we do on the potential for fake deaths, they had us. Now that we’ve given them this power over us not even the smartest people in the world can figure out how to reopen the American economy without being blamed by a left leaning socialist media for every death that might happen. The theme of the day is that humans interfered with the natural process of getting over viruses and stopping their outbreak by inserting medical professionals in the middle of the action to slow the spread because they wanted to do two things, highlight needs in the healthcare profession from their point of view, and to reduce the carbon imprint on the world to reduce man-made climate change. The social distancing concept was a scam from the start, sure they wanted to slow the spread, but not for the reasons they told us. They wanted to scare us into believing whatever it took to give them the stage and now that they have it, they aren’t giving it back. Trump is literally going to have to rip Dr. Fauci off the stage with his friends and to deal with the consequences. They don’t want a solution other than more laws and to make vaccines that can track us everywhere we go and everything we do mandatory by the same stupid government that over-reacted to this virus. And the longer it goes on, the more able they are to see success of their original objectives.

Now that so many have tasted the power of panic, they won’t give it back easily which is evident by the amount of time even people like Larry Kudlow are saying it will take to get back to normal. Of course, the governors and the doctors at the CDC never want to go back to normal where the world couldn’t care less what they thought about much of anything. Suddenly they are kings of the world and they like it. William Barr, the Attorney General has noticed the draconian violations to state and federal constitutions and is outraged by it. There has been so much wrong with all this activity that it has spun many minds into chaos. They can’t see the big picture because this virus has been smashing them in the face so that they can see nothing else. But I’ll be happy to report that the social distancing was never anything more than a trick to get us to look at one thing while the other hands moved the rabbit into the hat to pull out for a show to a terrified audience.

Just think of all the things we haven’t been talking about, like the FISA abuses, the many perils of the FBI activism in favor of the DNC. We haven’t even been talking about the attempts at freedom in Hong Kong and Iran by populations sick and tired of totalitarian regimes. This virus outbreak has distracted us all to the point we’d agree to almost any draconian measure just to be able to go to a restaurant again. That is exactly what these environmental wackos at the CDC and WHO wanted with this coronavirus outbreak. And their phony social distancing served only their own purposes by keeping us from talking to each other and putting our minds on this virus and nothing else so they could work Agenda 21 objectives through the World Health Organization. And to make the virus appear more dangerous and to keep the economy closed longer, they did want to slow the spread. Not to save lives but to save their movement, and we played right into it. It was a ploy any problem solver should see easily. But unfortunately, we have trusted the experts too much, because they have turned out to be terrorists of a different kind, one we weren’t prepared to see and we are now paying the price.

The Buckeye Firearms Association Endorses George Lang: Getting HB 178 passed

The best hope for a continuation of House Bill 178 getting passed in the Senate is to have George Lang there to help convince Mike DeWine to sign the bill, which modifies weapons law, permitting concealed carry without a license, and many other positive reforms. While many are still in debate about to what extent the Second Amendment can or should be regulated, the crazy leftist who shot up a night spot in Dayton has many conservatives weak-kneed and in need of some hand holding in the aftermath. Of the people running for the 4th District Senate Seat in the upcoming primary between George Lang, Candice Keller and Ding Dong Lee Wong, only George Lang has the clout and ability to help Mike DeWine get off the fence and back to the table to sign such a bill as HB 178. As we get closer to the primary in March, its important that voters understand the strategy and best options for the issues they are most passionate about, and in Ohio the gun rights concerns are a big topic, so a bit of context is worth our time and consideration.

Candice Keller has been asked by the GOP to step down for her comments made in August in reaction to mass shootings in general. I think many people who are logical understood that much of what she said is true, about fatherless homes, and drug users being the cause of many mass shootings, but what hurt her is that she brought up Nazi language and tousled into the gay rights debate in a way that was completely unnecessary, and it hurt the GOP brand, and her stance on Second Amendment rights, which she has been a strong supporter. But she also walked right into the poo poo by giving opponents of bills like HB 178 a face to throw darts at, and therefor a great excuse for Mike DeWine to move away from signing it. So long as Candice was a face of Second Amendment rights in Columbus then she is hurting all the politicians who support the bill but had the political skill to stay out of trouble when pressed by the media for reaction to such catastrophes like the shooting in Dayton last year. This is another reason that the media has given Candice so much prominent coverage—most of it negative, because it has forced this issue underground again and made her look like a front runner in the 4th Seat Senate race. But there is a better option, a much better one in George Lang who is every bit as much of a Second Amendment supporter, I think more so, however, he has the political skill to unite people around the bill in the Senate to the Governor that Candice just doesn’t have. And even if she did, it will take her years to rebuild her political clout within the GOP to be effective in those types of discussions.

The media would like to make the race for that senate seat look much tighter ahead of the primary with its secret hopes that enough people might vote for Candice so that she can be elected to that seat only to waste it on more political scandal, which would then effectively kill HB 178 for many years. However, running for a big office seat like those in the senate takes politicians who can raise money, advertise, and then not step in it when pushed by the media for comments, who can stay on target literally with their message under great stress. And to that point only George Lang has any remote possibility of being an effective senator in the 4th District. In the financial reports for the candidates that were due on Friday of last week, George Lang had cash reserves of well over $200,000 where Candice only had $12,000. So that leaves her only strategy to hope to stay relevant is to be a rock chucker and hope that she can get some headlines and free coverage to get her message out. But the problem is, the GOP wants her to resign, so any coverage she gets is always going to be negative.

Meanwhile the Buckeye Firearms Association has endorsed George Lang for Ohio’s 4th Senate district and by mid-February the NRA is going to give its support as well. George’s record and ability has the recognized strength to advance gun rights as a senator and that momentum should not be wasted by anybody who wants to see bills like HB 178 become law without becoming so watered down by passage that it would be virtually worthless. I would encourage Candice whom I think genuinely cares about gun rights to get behind George as the best option to represent the 4th District in this great debate. But more than that, George has the ability to put that needed arm around Governor DeWine’s neck to get the signature needed to make HB 178 a reality. Those are the kinds of political skills that go well beyond a simple vote in the chamber and how things really happen in any political body.

Candice due to her lack of political skill, not necessarily her fault—time will fix a lot of that—but she’s had to take some of these extreme positions on her Facebook page to try to cover her lack of connections to secure funding for a campaign. It’s a page out of the Trump playbook, but he was rich and didn’t need to raise money for advertising in the traditional way. New media can take a creative politician far, but not that far, and her lack of ability to gather a crowd that will give her thousands of dollars in donations is something that can’t be overcome with political theater alone. There needs to be other layers to the reach of a senator in any district and that range and donation ability is the kind of leverage that gets you a lunch date with the governor to even pitch the ideas outside of chamber protocol. Everything is about political clout and that is how after this 2020 election cycle HB 178 has the best chance to get back out into the voting cycle.

The NRA knows George is the best chance and so does the Buckeye Firearms Association, and others who are sure to follow. If the true goal is to get pro firearm legislation solidified in Ohio then George is the best option. If the goal is simply to get elected into the senate by any means possible and Candice has to be forced to show all these extreme cards to get the free publicity, then she can’t truly say that she wants HB 178 to pass, because she has no ability to help advance it as a senator or as a member of the House. The GOP is distancing themselves from her and I would say to Candice that her political future isn’t over, it needs repaired. Helping to get HP 178 to a senator who can help on the other side and secure sentiment with the governor would go a long way to repairing that relationship. And that would take more guts for all the right reasons than destroying everything from the inside out just to get a political win for the short run.

More Government Employees Failing where Guns are the Real Solution

Here’s what I get tired of hearing about when it comes to these mass shootings, they most of the time are caused by some institutional failure but are then opportunities for descriptions of heroics by that same institutional failure. All the while, the moment that a gun is involved in anything, before the facts were even published politicians like Bernie Sanders started talking about why we need even more institutional regulation to protect us from some unknown menace. This is of course regarding the latest shooting incident, this time at Virginia Beach by a long-time public utilities employee who had access to a building and opened fire on 12 innocent people and injured many others. Why he did what he did likely has something to do with government’s failure in the workplace. Members of government engaged in a shoot-out with the guy who was shot. Government employees administered First Aid to try to save him, but the shooter died of his injuries. And Bernie Sanders within just a few hours wanted more gun control without even knowing the specifics of the case, and was demonizing the NRA.

By the way it all sounded, from the knuckle dragging antics of the shooter to the police on the scene it came across like an episode of the Keystone Cops and more people died as a result. The police were supposed to have a shoot out with an attacker, its part of the job just as a fry guy at a fast food restaurant is supposed to drop fries when an order comes in until the timer goes off. Shooting at people or processing fries are all part of jobs that are out there, but you can tell that when the police start bragging about their “heroics” that government is essentially trying to keep the public in believing more government action instead of dealing with the real problem, like why the gunman wanted to shoot at people in the first place. After all, that is the only motive that matters.

Personally, I don’t trust government employees of any kind to resolve those kinds of problems, because the systems they function from are not fast enough. Military and police departments are often too late and make decisions way behind the curb of needed action because of their command structure. I get the need for police to be there to keep some sort of structure present, which does prevent more of these kinds of events, but they are certainly not the cure all for violence. In this case and in many others, the real solution to gun violence is of course to have more concealed carry holders present who could have taken that shooter out in seconds rather than minutes. And to do that the NRA should be listened to and counseled by government because they are the real professions with a solution, not socialist losers like Bernie Sanders. The NRA knows a lot more about gun handling and in using them for defense than all these government employees that are all at the center of many of these mass shootings.

Whether we are talking about school shootings or public breakdowns like the one at Virginia Beach by Dewayne Craddock—or even going back to the Vegas shooting, the 9/11 terrorist incident, or the San Bernardino massacre that the FBI allowed the media to destroy the scene of the crime for who knows what reason, more trust in more government is the dumbest thing anyone could propose. Often, they are slow to get where the danger is, and when they do get there the body count is higher because for them its just a job, like those idiots at the Parkland school shooting in Florida where the police had gotten used to a pampered lifestyle and driving really nice squad cars. When the bullets started flying, they were hiding and looking for every excuse in the world not to engage. The NRA has much better solutions to those types of matters then the government who fails to act when needed, as fast as they are needed, and also failure to properly understand why shootings occur at all.

But to insist that guns be kept away from the public and that our safety and security be put completely in the hands of the government, whether it’s the local, state or federal level is preposterous. Likely when shootings happen there is always some lunatic out there working for government that will have access to guns while the rest of us don’t, and they statistically are the ones we should be watching the closest. When one of them snaps due to some emotional problem we certainly don’t want to be at their mercy, which was the very first thing that liberal politicians proposed after the Virginia shooting. The real villain will likely be some medication either legal or illegal that set off an emotional imbalance which is what we should always first be looking at. Its too early to tell in this latest case, but marijuana is a common factor in many of the mass killing incidents especially in cases like the Boston Bombers and the shooter in the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida a few years ago. The gun is just a tool that losers use to kill other people. The desire to kill other people is the real problem, and government doesn’t have a solution to that because in most cases they look to drug sales to generate vast amounts of tax revenue for their unionized work demands so they don’t really want a real solution. They just want to talk about their long gun battles and their administering of First Aid at the scene of a crime. They don’t really want to solve the problem because they are part of it.

The proposal for citizen gun ownership and carrying them in public is to keep the solution closer to the problems and not expecting to expand government to deal with every little tragedy. In the building at Virginia Beach where this shooting occurred should have been other employees who could have shot the shooter within 30 seconds instead of a half an hour. Fewer people would have been injured and killed. Instead a place like that had metal detectors to keep guns out of people’s hands making it a gun free zone, and an easy target for some deranged lunatic which always pushes up the body count. So why would anybody propose more government control when it was government rules, procedures, and impediments that actually cause the death toll to be as high as it was? Because nobody on the government side of things wants to admit that they can’t detect lunacy in people and to stop them before they become a menace to society, and that when tragedy does strike that they are too late to do anything about it. For the rest of us who without guns, are all potential victims to the stupidity of government employees who are much more concerned about their pensions then running into gunfire to cut minutes off the clock of terror while innocent people are bleeding out waiting for help.

Carrying guns and shooting back when danger presents itself isn’t for everyone. But it is for those who are most prone to use them to save innocent people when the call for it is needed. This case in Virginia Beach is no different. If there had been good guys with a gun there to stop the bad government employee with a gun, then a lot more people would have gone home on that sad Friday afternoon. But unfortunately, that wasn’t the case and many more people died. Then, rather than dealing with why it happened the political class immediately went to more government power by taking away guns and putting more trust into their systematic approach that obviously never works. It’s also why it keeps happening.

We Need Guns for Civilization to Work Properly

The Democrats continue to propose this notion of impeachment of President Trump and to be honest, this makes the best argument for the Second Amendment that could be provoked. President Trump was elected by an honest election process, and with all the legal scrutiny that could be generated against him, he was found innocent of any wrong doing, yet the calls for his removal from office continue on, and have even increased as Democrats realize they are losing power at a rapid rate. It is a reminder why we must have the Second Amendment, because if a president of the United States can be abused the way that Trump has been, it can happen to any of us and the only way to defend ourselves truly is not in a court of law, but with the barrel of a gun, as is obvious by the antics of our present circumstances. I put my message to those who want to impeach President Trump on Instagram and for me it would be a last resort but its safe to say, that if Trump were to be impeached, I would consider the law and order of our governing system to be too far gone to hold any merit, and the only thing that would hold our society together would be our guns.

Not having guns as the foundation of our country and our entire legal system is simply not an option. I will never trust anything mankind proposes by way of justice without a gun being somewhere nearby. People are fallible and they often abuse words on paper if they can get away with it to obtain power at someone else’s cost, and that is just not permissible. I’m not going to allow it, and the only way to enforce that is with gun ownership. Guns are the stabilizing factor of western civilization which keeps us free. Without them our society would have fallen apart a long time ago. Guns keep everyone honest and that has been a good thing. But let’s face it, the Second Amendment isn’t for hunting, it’s for taking back our government from the powerful, if we need to. And if Trump is impeached, then when would we declare that everything is too far gone to deal with things without violence? There are elections every four years, and that is the time where the opposition can knock out someone from power if they can. That’s how our system is supposed to work. But if someone cheats and tries to do it with legal gymnastics and an abuse of the law, which is clearly what happened to President Trump, then what other recourse do any of us really have?

I propose that guns should be a greater part of our lives, we should wear them openly and allow all those we are dealing with to know that we are all functioning from an equal footing. Guns are the great equalizers, they are what makes us respect each other, not some words on a page. Guns are an invention by mankind that have brought in the notion for equality in the first place. Without guns, we would not have had many of the social revolutions that we have had in the United States. Guns have played a much larger role than many people give them credit for. There has been no political figure that we’ve had in the world that would convince me that guns were not needed to keep everything balanced and in order.

The shame of it is that we’ve allowed a political class to define gun ownership and their use as dangerous and a safety hazard, as if they were in the same category as tobacco and alcohol. From a government perspective they know they can’t truly rule over our society without having guns removed from the discussion, and truly, deep down inside, that is what “government” as an entity wants to do, they want to control us. That’s sort of their job title. But what keeps the tendency for human failure from harming us? Well, it’s the fear that if government abuses its power that the people they rule over will shoot back. I would contend that without guns or at least a culture of weapons, that no foundation of law and order would persist in any culture.

I have been around the world a few times and visited some of our greatest cities on earth and I can say honestly that the lack of guns have made most of them armpits. In order to have a gun free society work the intellectual aptitude of the inhabitants must yield themselves to the weaknesses of their culture because that is the only way that peace is achieved. Whereas in cultures where guns are openly worn and discussed, the intellectual curiosity of the world around them tends to go up. As I write this I’m thinking of England, a place where they clearly don’t understand gun ownership in a personal way. They love their institutions in England and they are willing to trade their personal freedoms and security away toward a trust in their authority figures. But at a cost, they are a declining culture that is limited to the whims of their government, and that is a dangerous place to be.

Then there is the example in Paris, which I have called many bad names due to their present state chaos. They have their yellow vest protests which have been going on for a long time and are the result of the failed socialism there for many years. After the fire at Notre Dame over 900 million dollars were contributed to help restore the cathedral prompting many of those weekend protestors to question why similar contributes didn’t flow toward their pockets. After all, it was gas prices and taxes that were keeping them poor and middle class. Why couldn’t “the rich” just give them all 900 million dollars so they could sit around their homes all day and play video games? What isn’t understood by these people was the value Notre Dame had to so many people around the world, and that value was reflected in the contributions. Notre Dame had value. A bunch of dirty, stinky, lazy socialists do not have value, so nobody wants to give them 900 million dollars to sit around complaining and playing games all day. It is that lack of understanding that can often make governments dangerous because they seek to appease those types of dumb, shortsighted people in elections which means that the mobs of the angry can then confiscate the wealth of the hard-working. In Europe this is a real problem, which is why more people don’t have more things. A culture that embraces gun ownership tends to be one that also understands the nature of value and it prevents more violence, it doesn’t act as an agitator of more instances.

Gun ownership I consider to be the foundation of civilization. Without it governments and the people they are supposed to represent fall apart quickly. So it’s a great benefit to have more guns in more places in any culture. And it’s what keeps the bad guys away. It’s also what keeps the temptations to impeach presidents from getting out of control because we know from history that people in power will do just about anything to stay there. And when they feel they can abuse others to keep their power, or to advance it, they certainly will. What I can say is that if my president is impeached, I’m not going to be very happy about it, and I will look toward the Second Amendment to restore balance, and order. Yielding to authority is simply not an option. I never see a day where guns aren’t the center of civilized discourse, because of their equalizing effect. It puts everyone on equal footing which should be encouraged, not discouraged. But then again, people who want more gun regulations are not really interested in peace and equality. They want power and they want us disarmed so they can have their way with us. And that is the deep, dark secret nobody wants to talk about.

Guns in the Ohio Constitution

We have been hearing and seeing so much about what the Democrats want for America, from open border policies, to high taxation, murderous abortions, and abuses of the standing armies to raid private citizens in the middle of the night and throw them in jail just over political maneuverings, an obvious abuse of authority. I’ve always been a bit of a Constitutional hound, I trust mostly the decisions of the Supreme Court at the federal level, even when they don’t go my way. When I don’t like the direction of the country for instance, instead of taking up guns and overthrowing the government, like we are expected to do when things get out of control, I settle on elections. That’s why I supported Donald Trump for president, he was a needed change done in the most peaceful manner. However, after the arrest of Roger Stone, Trump’s first campaign manager into the 2016 elections and the obvious bad treatment of other people directly connected to President Trump by the FBI I have been going back and rereading the Constitutions that have founded our nation and thinking differently about what to do next. It started for me by asking what I would do if the FBI or local police were instigated to come to my door to arrest me, how would I handle it. That answer provoked me to revisit the law and consider the correct options.

But too often we assume that the federal government has supremacy law over the states, which we know from the Tenth Amendment that it doesn’t which means that the Constitutions of whatever state you live in are important considerations as well, and I can say that the Ohio Constitution is not an easy thing to put your civilian hands on, which it should be. Anyway, I picked one up and for current reading. A previous copy I had from something like thirty years ago was missing so a new one was needed and once it arrived, I found a modern reading of it to be quite refreshing. Assuming that I have to say I know a few Ohio Supreme Court Justices, not well enough that we swap spit in the shower, but well enough to call them neighbors whom I speak with from time to time so I understand the nature of case-law which has been shaped by the Ohio Constitution over time, but what I want to focus on are a few very nice quotes listed in the Preamble of the Article I: Bill of Rights, which read very similarly to the federal Bill of Rights inspired by the Anti-Federalist Papers.

Specifically, I found the language of #2 of the Ohio Bill of Rights to be much more specific than the federal Second Amendment which we all hear so much about. It makes it quite clear what the intention of a society of gun owners is supposed to be doing and why they have the power to do it. There is no mistake about it, it says: Right to alter, reform, or abolish government, and repeal special privileges. All political power is inherent in the people. Government is instituted for their equal protection and benefit, and they have the right to alter, reform, or abolish the same, whenever they may deem it necessary: and no special privileges or immunities shall ever be granted, that may not be altered, revoked, or repealed by the General Assembly. Essentially, if the government of Ohio gets too far out of control, everyday people need to be able to abolish it and start over. Things that come to my mind as causes for such a thing to happen would be massive debt and abuses of authority. Lucky for all of us living in Ohio, it’s a pretty well-run state, but part of the reason why is that there are a lot of gun owners who don’t have much tolerance for nonsense. We are not obligated to just deal with a bunch of spoiled brat government employees. If they screw up and over extend themselves, we have an obligation to end that government and start a new one.

Another part of the Ohio Bill of Rights that jumped out at me was #4 Bearing arms; standing armies: military power. The people have the right to bear arms for their defense and security; by standing armies, in time of peace, are dangerous to liberty, and shall not be kept up; and the military shall be in strict subordination to the civil power. Now this was written in 1851, not that long ago. And when reading it I can’t help but think of the Roger Stone case and the corruption we have seen at the level of the FBI under James Comey and Andrew McCabe. Granted, these actions were not in Ohio, Stone was arrested in Florida and the core of the FBI characters were likely regulated by other constitutional parameters not specific to Ohio, but the intent behind the language could not be clearer. A standing army in times of peace tends to breed corruption, when a police state is established where they represent the arm of a corrupt government and they have power over people who don’t, bad things tend to happen, and we see it all the time. I find this portion of the Ohio Bill of Rights to be particularly potent in establishing legal precedent. Government even at the level of the Supreme Court of the state or at the federal level cannot trump this basic premise with case-law assumptions. Because if we have to abolish the government for whatever reason the grounds for doing so revert back to this basic foundation of law in Ohio for which we all agree is the law of the land.

Maybe this is why the Ohio Constitution isn’t more publicized. I’m sure I read these things before, but in the context of our modern times they are much more distinct than their federal brother. Later during the progressive era of 1912 there were amendments to the Ohio Constitution which complicate things a bit, but essentially the 1851 version is the law of the land, so why don’t more people know this stuff? It should be more broadly broadcast not just through the state of Ohio, but in other states trying to understand the foundations of their own government. I mean without question the State of Ohio evokes the privileges of eminent domain and public welfare rights in regard to private property as written in the 1851 Ohio Constitution, so why not apply the same to the #2 and #4 section of the Preamble where gun rights are the obvious emphasis? The obvious answer of course is that much of the Constitutions that make our country what it is at both the federal level and the level of the state are interpreted by government employees for the benefit of themselves. But behind it all is the expectation that the people for whom the constitutions are written are expected to enforce justice when needed, and in these modern times, it looks like its needed. There are worse things than violence in a society, and that is a civilization that is just asleep at the wheel and has lost itself to the powers of government reverting back to an aristocratic existence. It is far more dangerous to become an overly compliant society that has lost its freedoms than to take up arms to remove corruption from office. Just a few things to think about as we learn more about how our government really operates and what little respect they have for our current president or the people who put him in office.

The Neccessity of Gun Ownership

The problem with all progressives in government and in society in general is that they are functioning from a false assumption, that history is a linier exercise that progresses day by day, week by week, and year by year from one accomplishment to another for all recorded history. They believe that once a society learns something that it has it forever and that all ideas and concepts progress off one another toward a more enlightened understanding of the world. They are wrong, what in fact does happen is that the human race is continuously climbing and falling and relearning things it long ago forgot and that the reality of progress and understanding is that gunpowder essentially broke the Vico Cycle for which we all followed for many thousands of years and from that invention of a new philosophy took root and America that was born as an opportunity to truly change the course of history. This gave way to the idea of self-rule and the American Constitution which in our present time is a deeply philosophic work that would have never emerged if not for the personal ownership of guns to protect it. That makes Nancy Pelosi’s reaction to President Trump’s national emergency declaration to secure funding for a border wall along the southern states touching Mexico a serious blunder driven from a lack of understanding about the nature of reality. A national emergency declared by some future Democrat inspiring any restriction to the Second Amendment is not comparable to what President Trump did and will not be allowed under Constitutional consideration.

There are a couple of facts that must be addressed in relation to Nancy Pelosi’s progressive position and the general attitude of her insurgents in the current congress, that likely some member of the Trump family or the current cabinet will continue to be president of the United States well into the future, well past President Trump’s eight terms. I don’t see people turning away from the prospects of a good economy to hurt themselves with the progressive notions of social justice wealth redistribution. The American presidency has changed forever under the Trump White House and I just don’t see any Democrats or Republicans understanding at this point what happened. In some cases it will take them decades to figure it out and by then there will be several Trump spawns who will inhabit the White House and will continue the work that has been started, in Making America Great Again. The second aspect of Nancy’s meanderings is that it is the Second Amendment that essentially holds together the concept of law and order created by the American Constitution. It is rather funny that Democrats spend so much time with their counter-culture fantasies of breaking and even ignoring laws then they think that if they were in power, that people would automatically follow their laws. Sorry folks, it doesn’t work that way. If Nancy’s clan ever managed to put restrictions on the Second Amendment those laws would be ignored because they are not based on Constitutional principles and would be therefor worthless.

Part of the beauty of gun ownership is that it is directly responsible for a period of law and order in the United States that has been very successful and allowed a culture to flourish under the natural autonomy of its citizens. The stability of the law under the American Constitution is unique in the world and is largely responsible for the success of our economy over a long period of time. It wasn’t that long ago that Japan was an enemy of the United States functioning under a tyrannical emperor, or the Soviet Union was openly communist, Iran was free and taken over by communism as was Cuba. France was actually a territory of the conquerors in Germany. How many times have the countries of Europe, Asia and Africa been invaded and reinvented by rival factions always changing the nature of their law and order? Even in South Africa consider the changes to their society under the communist Nelson Mandela. Most places in the world have been around for a long time as societies, but they have not had stable governments to carry from one generation to the next ideas and understandings built on philosophy that lasted well into the future essentially because their people could not protect their laws and order from invaders, either from outside their countries or from within. That is not the case in America. With more guns than people it is impossible for some insurgent to take over mass population centers in America and to therefor eradicate Constitutional concepts from the minds of our population.

Losing gun rights in America just isn’t permissible under any conditions because it is the fundamentals of gun ownership which preserves the nature and intent of the American Constitution. Gun ownership is one of the most wonderful aspects of our culture because it has allowed the philosophy of good law to provide rights to individuals in ways that has never occurred before in history and allowed for a true break from the grasp of the Vico Cycle. So gun confiscation is simply not an option under some future Democrat president or any other political attempt to remove them from the general population. Without gun ownership there is no law. So giving them up will never happen. If such a proposal were actually made, breaking that law would become quite fashionable and if troops were sent home to home to grab them, there would be open gun battles to stop the incursion. Guns trump laws of a progressive nature because the foundation document of the original Constitution understood the need for the protection of individual liberty.

When gun laws are proposed what is being asked or demanded is an expansion of federal powers over the natures of individual citizens, which is a loss of legal concept which protects the very idea of American laws. The way many police react to CCW holders or homeowners known to have many guns on their property is completely beyond the scope of their business and in violation of the nature of American law, hedging dangerously close to a police state mentality where government has more power than individuals. The nature of the American Constitution is to limit the powers of government and when Nancy’s gang of lunatics propose even offhanded the idea of Second Amendment restrictions, they are championing efforts at federal expansion of rights over the rights of individuals citizens which is not a permissible concept.

Guns and their ownership have been proposed by power grabbers as being part of a backwards way of thinking by the uneducated and stupid. The way that Democrats speak about gun shows and NRA supporters is actually quite an insult. The truth is quite the opposite, gun ownership is part of a sophisticated concept of modern legal understanding and enforcement and is directly linked to the wealth of our nation. Without gun ownership it is unlikely that the American Constitution would have lasted for 50 years let alone more than 200. And it is also unlikely that America would be as wealthy as it is, because wealth is a creation of individual free people, not the nations themselves. And that is not a negotiable position, no nation is permitted to make laws that power themselves, so therefore no national emergency will ever supersede the need for gun ownership and the philosophic advancement that they provide to a society of individuals.

The Ghost Gunner 2: Everything you need to know about the moral, and legal need to manufacture guns in your home

The Ghost Gunner 2 is a wonderful mini milling machine that can produce gun parts without a lot of machining expertise. It is the device that senatorial candidate for the GOP Austin Peterson of Missouri is giving away to a lucky recipient to make a point on Second Amendment protections. Since gunpowder was first contemplated in around 142 AD in China society has evolved along its advancements. While many think of guns and gunpowder as a destructive device, its widespread use and development has greatly decentralized civilization allowing the concept of an “America” to evolve. Prior to the invention of gunpowder empires largely controlled the lives of mass civilizations through emperors and kings. It took about a thousand years but with the invention of gunpowder and guns slavery was ended in the civilized world, nations were born, and scientific development has flourished. So, guns are not bad, and neither is gunpowder. But to put it mildly to the lefty politicians who clamor for more gun control and stricter background checks, it is not the job of the federal government to regulate firearms. It is the mandate of private citizens to use firearms to keep government in check. So, it only makes sense to have the ability for every household to manufacture their own firearms any time they want and in whatever quantities they desire. The Ghost Gunner 2 makes that home manufacturing of firearms very practical.

In the United States I think the major gun companies are real treasures. I love Ruger, Smith & Wesson, Henry Repeating Arms, Magnum Research—I love every one of them. The people who work in these places are genuinely good people making a great American product and I personally think every American should add one gun to their collection every year to support these fine businesses. But we need to get something straight about all this sudden concern about “ghost guns,” firearms made off 3D printers from plans downloaded from the Internet, the Genie is not going back into the bottle. We can’t “uninvent” guns without destroying society itself. Because honestly, it is the gun and gun powder that has brought about our advanced society. Without the invention of firearms, common people would have never have gained the opportunity to overthrow their kings and emperors and our society would be a much different one today. It’s highly likely mankind would have never gone to space if not for the invention of the gun and the emergence of America as a direct result of personal firearm ownership.

The political concern isn’t so much over the 3D printed guns which produces a kind of hard plastic AR lower that isn’t very reliable, it’s the technical ability of something like the Ghost Gunner 2 that brings very advanced milling machine ability to private homes. That realization destroyed what many left leaning anti-gun advocates had long been fantasizing about. They thought that if they lobbied congress to change some gun laws, or put pressure on Dick’s Sporting Goods and Field & Stream to take guns out of their stores, or that liberal politicians might even shut down gun manufacturers by taxing them and regulating them out of existence, that they might rid the world of guns. What they learned is that as regulations and the threat of them have increased, the ability to manufacture guns at home which have also increased as a direct response and the threat of having millions and millions of guns in society that don’t even have traceable serial numbers on them is even scarier.

I personally have no problem with my guns being registered. But given what we’ve seen out of our own FBI during the Trump presidency and the massive laws that were broken in an attempt to overthrow him through impeachment, it doesn’t take much of an imagination to see why registering guns with the federal government would be problematic. If they were to ever gain the ability to confiscate guns through the legislature they would simply read off their directory and go home to home in a confiscation raid which gives an emerging enemy an unfair advantage. I say an emerging enemy because obviously if a government is seeking to protect its power and wishes to take more from the people who fuel it through taxation, then their ability to disarm the population to protect their advances gives them a terrible advantage. But for the gun owner, the power of their firearm ownership keeps such governments from gaining too much power. It’s not that we should go around shooting everyone, but the threat of having it keeps potential dictators from getting any crazy thoughts. Naturally, being part of a thoughtful civilization as the Obama years made the threat of gun confiscation a very real possibility, companies like those who manufacture Ghost Gunner 2 have found a way to overcome that threat. Personally, I think produced firearms that nobody needs to know that you have so that they aren’t on a target list from some future government is the key to a continued free society.

Of course, political lefty radicals want more laws to legislate these types of personal gun making machines but I’d say to them, who thinks anybody is going to follow the law? Laws will not put the Genie back in the bottle and I would say they will be vastly ignored if they do create such legislation. After all, marijuana is illegal and political leftists have been ignoring those laws for decades. Why should gun owners obey laws just because some politician makes them up to protect their own power? By following the Constitution of our nation, the Second Amendment, and the First Amendment which protects the ability to exchange the knowledge of gun building from one person to another are critical to the continued success of the United States of America. Having a gun that has a serial number on it that the federal government can trace is not important to the right to own a gun to protect civilization from an out of control government. In a gun free world, history shows that governments often spin out of control and we’ve seen it in American culture as well as anywhere, so taking guns out of society and legislating them out of existence just isn’t a possibility. The more laws there are, the more innovation will arise to step around those laws. If there are more gun control laws centered around serial number registration than naturally the human thing to do would be to invent some way to step around the law. It’s that simple.

All my guns are registered, and I don’t worry about any federal government trouble at this time. My kind of president is in the White House and I feel good about where the nation is going. But I personally do have the ability to build every part of a gun from the ammunition to the most complex part of a gun and if society fails for sustained periods of time, I can see a real need to be able to manufacture my own guns from my home. Liberals want the American population to trust their government completely, but Austin Peterson has the right idea, gun ownership is the heart of our Constitution, it is at the heart of all civilized society. Guns aren’t defined by whether or not they have a serial number that shows they are officially recognized by the federal government, they just need to shoot straight, and not blow up in our hands. They need to be reliable, and we need to have them, that is all that is required. That is why the Ghost Gunner 2 is a wonderful invention and I am very inclined to get one just in case someday I may need it.

One of the most satisfying things I’ve done in a while was purchase my new Desert Eagle from Magnum Research. The gun wasn’t in stock, I had to wait for them to make a run through their shop to get the style that I selected. And they were very good to let me know the status along the way which I appreciated. I personally know well over 100 people who could machine a gun from a block of aluminum without even breaking a sweat. That’s why I was able to appreciate all the fine craftsmanship that went into my Desert Eagle. But if Magnum Research were to be regulated out of existence by politicians hell-bent on power, I would still get my gun. No law from some modern politicians trying to manipulate the Constitution is going to stop me from that. They can’t have it both ways, they can’t advocate law breaking (marijuana, and illegal immigration) then expect gun owners to follow the laws liberals like. Respect for the law is just what it is, and liberals have shown that they don’t respect the law, and that is a situation they made for themselves. And that is why we will make guns in our homes whether or not it is legal. So long as the Constitution says we have the right to bear arms, we will have them whether or not there are serial numbers to go with them, because it is that very government that we have an obligation to keep in check. And that is the ultimate law of the land. Without that we have nothing anyway.
