Back to gun control. The discussion has been going on for so long that it has become tedious, but it shouldn’t, because the Second Amendment is a truly unique device to which only the United States of America can lay claim. This was the only government founded by people who understood that governments ultimately could not be trusted. This idea has been left by the wayside by Marxist educators for reasons that should be obvious; now a preponderance of Americans not only have no idea why Second Amendment is important, they do not believe it is important at all. Their it-can’t-happen-here presumption is among the most intellectually indolent notions imaginable.
This week, I heard a conservative radio commentator refer to liberals with gun control sentiments that were “perhaps well-intended.” I was mortified. The stark reality is staring us in the face: We are under the yoke of evil men who intend to enslave us, and one of the few barriers left to them is the Second Amendment. There is no more room for the naïveté of the “well-intended.”
The elephant (or the communist, if you prefer) in the room behind all of the machinations I have described is that the federal government, already grown to Cyclopean proportions over the last hundred years by self-seeking narcissists, is under the control of abject radical Marxists and a kitchen cabinet of global socialists and crony corporate and banking interests intent upon transforming the very globe into a sterile dystopia.
For years, Americans have accepted the dictates of fiat regulatory agencies fabricated by our presidents, which have no constitutional authority to regulate anything. These have done little more than stultify the economy, attenuate our liberties, and bleed taxpayer resources under the pretext of operating for our own good. New federal regulations recently called “illegal and unconstitutional” by veteran commentator Charles Krauthammer are hitting the books every week; they all threaten to further cripple the economy, and indeed are calculated to do so, yet, when the axe falls, most Americans won’t even know that they were a factor. Using these regulations, an army of czars, and the instrument of the Executive Order, Barack Obama has become a veritable dictator.
This isn’t a time for discretion, subtlety, or conciliation. It is a time for calling out our government for what it is, and as the Founders of our nation did disengage from those who are too stupid or cowardly to resist slavery. Few in Congress, Democrat or Republican, and likely none of the current administration would escape hanging were America’s founders on the scene at present.
