  • Don’t you believe in the 2nd amendment? Absolutely I believe it exists, and as a matter of fact hundreds of them exist in various constitutions of current and past governments, including Animal Farm.  I do not build my arguments upon sand, and pieces of paper written by rich white men several hundred years ago are NOT my foundation.   Over two hundred years ago, a small group of the wealthiest white males in America got together and decided that government was good and necessary.  They decided that some people could make other people do as they demand, and others would have to pay them as they demand.  They set up a system slightly different from the system in England.   If one accepts that the new government founders were well intentioned, they must still acknowledge that the second amendment came about, not to allow farmers to have guns with which to shoot ducks for dinner, but for shooting government agents (police & military) when the government became too tyrannical.   A hundred years later, some were already suspicious of the constitution.   “And yet we have what purports, or professes, or is claimed, to be a contract—the Constitution—made eighty years ago, by men who are now all dead, and who never had any power to bind us, but which (it is claimed) has nevertheless bound three generations of men, consisting of many millions, and which (it is claimed) will be binding upon all the millions that are to come; but which nobody ever signed, sealed, delivered, witnessed, or acknowledged; and which few persons, compared with the whole number that are claimed to be bound by it, have ever read, or even seen, or ever will read, or see.” ― Lysander Spooner, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority   In his writings, Lysander speaks of the tiny percentage of humans living in America at the time of the declaration of independence and the constitution that were even aware that some people were getting together and making what they purported to be legally binding contracts.  These contracts included a system by which the conditions of the contract could be changed by the government.  These changes, made by a select few that pretend to “represent” those that don’t know or care, were to be called amendments.   Now, over 200 years later, many build their entire argument for keeping and bearing arms on that piece of paper, which is absolutely amendable through transparent means as well as through varying interpretations.  The constitution’s power is equivalent to a wet piece of paper.  I find it unwise to base my arguments on such unstable and weak things.   I absolutely acknowledge that the NRA’s ILA, the GOA and other “pro 2A” groups that enter into the government’s system to dance and spar over the degree of infringements to be done have indeed stemmed the tide of totalitarianism, much like sticking pieces of gum into the holes in a leaking dam.  They will certainly delay the inevitable, but they will not prevent the dam from breaking.   The intellectually honest person that disagrees with my above musings is well advised to read No Treason, The Constitution of No Authority, Animal Farm and The Most Dangerous Superstition.  I cannot describe as well as these great authors the principals, however I do suggest that the reader that disagrees with me at this moment might at least see my perspective after reading the above book list. So you ask, “Don’t you believe in the 2nd amendment?  I believe it exists, but it is not what gives me the right to keep and bear arms.  I am passionate about using guns for fun, for personal defense and I respect my neighbor’s right to hunt for food with them, just as I respect their right to keep and bear religious books, cigarettes and gold. “When property rights are respected; gun rights are not necessary.”   I do not ever want a group of people, whether they identify themselves as the Chinese government, the United Nations, the US government or as a band of crusaders, to take my guns or other private property away from me.  If I judge them to be strong enough to accomplish this task, I will have to decide if I am willing to die for my rights.  The fact that I pay them their extortion demands without fail and only with silent grumblings every April 15th indicates that I will again bow to their demands.  This makes me a coward.
