The Second Amendment Is A Test

There is no estimation of the lives saved by the Second Amendment, not just in deterring crime and criminals, but also in deterring the government from its worst temptations. As Mike Vanderboegh detailed in The Vanderboegh Tapes currently available on Vimeo, when he talked to a federal agent many years later, the agent told him that after the assault weapons ban was passed, before it became law and four million semi-automatic rifles were sold (more than had been sold in the previous twenty years) the agent admitted that it rattled them. Because the feds understood that people weren't buying all those guns to turn them in after the ban went into effect, they were forced to reconsider the next step which was to confiscate those weapons.

It's not that the media doesn't understand this, it is because they are pushing a narrative that comports with their collectivist leanings. They want the government to be in control of everything, either because they see themselves as somehow benefiting from the collective, or because they are immune to history and fact-blind to statistics. This is true even when those statistics are produced by the Center for Disease Control. They force the belief that a communist/collectivist future is somehow more humane. There is no point arguing that this is false and easily dispelled by history, because they are communists. In a lot of ways, they want revenge on history, if you can fathom that.

Part of securing the new future is to get rid of the Second Amendment, as if that were the answer. The problem with that thinking is that it reverts back to the issue with the assault weapons ban and all of those gun owners who bought semi-automatic rifles ahead of the ban, they won't just turn them in and they shouldn't. That was the reality before the boom years of gun sales during the Obama Administration, it would be much, much more difficult now. The communists don't care, because civil war is part of their plan if they can't get what they want through legislation or judicial fiat.

A good read of the recently released JFK documents will prove that the communists in government, especially the three-letter agencies, are not above creating false flag events to manipulate popular opinion. Vanderboegh got an up-close view of this during the Fast and Furious scandal he broke with David Codrea. Is that what Mandalay Bay was? Who knows, everything we suspected about these agencies have been exposed in the past few weeks, either through revelations of the level of corruption of the Obama Administration or through the JFK documents. So, it is certainly within their abilities to engage in something like Mandalay Bay to take another run at gun restrictions, because the Second Amendment is the holy grail of the communist/collectivist cabal.

For this reason alone, the Second Amendment, or rather the possession of arms, should be defended by any means necessary. The Second Amendment, I would argue, has always been incorrectly argued in the sense that it is argued in court on the phrase "shall not be infringed" and "a well-regulated militia," but the more important clause, the one that gets to the heart of the matter is really the phrase "necessary to the security of a free state."

Militias back then were state militias, not national militias and they were made up of citizens of those states, so in order to ensure that the states would not be subject to federal subversion and abuse, the citizens of the state should be well-regulated in the use of arms to ensure that if the federal government became abusive and corrupt that the states would be able to ensure their own freedom through rebellion and with arms and trained citizens. In essence, to do exactly as was done when the South seceded and the federal government had no right to resist that action with force, but when it did and when the South lost, it enslaved the whole of the states to the federal authority. One could say that a reckoning has been due since then, because the feds have given no alternative route to  resist them. And so, we have seen the abuses of the federal government multiply over every succeeding generation.

But, this civil war will not be like the last, it will not be anywhere near as civilized, primarily because during the first civil war, the South thought they would be able to simply secede and forge trade agreements with the remaining United States and little would change. In fact, many of the legislators, when they left, offered warm embraces to their counterparts, thinking they would soon engage them in mutually beneficial legislation. This civil war will not be like that, it will be ugly and bloody, because there is no such illusions to be shattered. It will not be a states vs states issue, it will be a guerilla war from beginning to end; a rural vs city struggle fought mostly in the dark, because electricity is the biggest weapon in the arsenal. Cut off the power and the cities will quickly implode. It will be a war of sabotage, infiltration and starvation. But, they will do it, because like every other psychopathic collectivism ever imagined, they cannot tolerate limitations on their power.

The Second Amendment is not about guns so much as it is a test. It is a test of whether or not government officials can be trusted with their armies.

  1. T.L.,

    I have always been impressed by your literary abilities. This essay, as most of yours, is an accurate assessment of the state of discord and dishonesty that comprises fedgov.

    It has LONG been my belief that only the eradication of traitors and usurpers within fedgov & stategov, will begin the correction this once great nation is in need of. By eradication I mean punishment via a short rope and tall tree.

    Until true Patriots arise in droves, march on D.C. armed locked & loaded with the will to completely "drain the swamp", capture, try, convict and hang those who comprise the tyranny fedgov has become, none will be held accountable.

    Who amongst us has the will to resolve the issues you write of, with violence ?

    2. "You worthless mutts."

      Tough guy....certainly you have value. If nothing more than to set the example of domestic statists who are scoundrels in their own right.

    3. Dan: Responding by marching on Mordor is perhaps a non starter for most. Each of our awareness of local topo/chokepoints/hidey-holes and local villains is of more importance than a siege of the distant unfamiliar swamp in my future activities.

    4. Dan, I am right now expecting the US to break up and trying to figure out how to ensure that certain rights are respected in the new alignment.

  2. From Southern Calif. might want to watch these two short videos of what's happening to young conservative activist:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rt-1-9ok3-g&utm_source=getkept&utm_medium=site

    It's being implemented in Calif. now. A 12cents gas tax to take effect wednesday. Hardly any reaction on the part of the populace.

  3. I hate to state the obvious: This US of A that we've all been taught we live in has been lost long ago. The 2nd amendment has been hog-tied and strangled in nearly every state and then worse in many cities that is has no real validity: no teeth. When those adults alive during the 60's allowed and even applauded the passing of the Gun Control Act of 1968, they started this country on a path of insane anti-gun legislation from sea to shining sea. Since that act is STILL in force, and then been strengthened with Brady Bill and others, with nary a whimper from the NRA and the pseudo patriots, how can any real militia ever be founded? I could go further back in time as this madness really started after WWI. Point is, we are already fighting over what?? Survival is what I see, restoring the Republic that failed? Count me out. The moment WE in the USA lose electricity as in grid down, that's the moment we cease to exist as a nation. Perhaps it's just the proper course of nature to remove a blight on the globe. More damage has been done in the name of patriotism than we'll ever be able to recover. There are too many cowards and infighting amongst the "3%" for it to ever be effective. Cast me a bright picture, will you? Cause I can't see it for the gloom.

    1. DT, I value your assessment. And, I have no illusions, but it is still a fact that the feds changed their intent due to actions of the people. Anything we do about it will have to be after some of the bigger issues force a crisis. All of my efforts lately have been to recruit new blood and raise up the new blood that is out there. So, no rosy picture here, but man, people seem too ready to give up ground. Make them fight for it. Even if they win, make them fight for it again.

  4. Very smart commentary! The Antifa/Washington crowd thinks this will be over in days-once the ball drops, I see years of turmoil. However: never give up your guns!

  5. This war will be quite different. Rather than marching anywhere, let alone to DC, and become a target, would it not be more effective and practical to have a few patriots quietly march to transformers - think 'electrical grid' - feeding densely populated cities downstream and let loose a few aimed rounds causing selective power loss? Want to make Manhattan FUBAR? Cut the electric supply. No elevators, no traffic lights, no subway, no internet, no debit.... Let the Mayor figure it out how to respond hours after said patriots are safely home in the suburbs - with all the good things that electricity brings. And Mordor? It would not fare well with a well-timed blackout. If a firearm is a force multiplier, what would selective destruction of power supply be, a force exponential-er? A few rounds to cut electricity to millions. Dang, those little Hillary Islands on the coasts and here and there in 'flyover' states will be awfully dark at night, aside from the light from fires borne of arson.

    I think I read the above strategy in a book sometime, and certainly not condoning the absolute mayhem such actions would bring to DC, NYC, CA, Chicago ....

  6. Obviously guerilla tactics such as targeting the power grid, water supplies and major rail and highway bridges into the Great Blue Beyond will be the way to fight any future conflict of red/blue if it ever comes to that. Power, water and food outages those areas would descend into a chaos they could never recover from. Small well trained groups could do what an army would not be able to. If and when it comes to conflict then like they say all is fair in love and war...
