The communists’ argument for infringements on our 2nd Amendment is being turned upside down, ironically by the communists themselves. Out of one side of their mouth, they are insisting that the federal law is supreme and must be enforced by state and local officials. If not, then the federal government will enforce the federal law as it did in the south for the equal rights of black Americans, as guaranteed under our Bill of Rights.
However out of the other side of their mouth, they are saying that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and that state’s legislature can enact and enforce state laws that violate the 2nd Article of our Bill of Rights and the federal government will refuse to intervene and send federal troops to enforce this federal constitutional law.
Five county sheriffs in the State of Oregon have come forth and declared that they will not enforce any federal law that infringes upon our 2nd Amendment. I view this as a good thing and in the real world it would be except to the extent that this stance represents closing the barn door after some of the cattle have already gotten out.
Our 2nd Amendment, hence our constitutional law, is absolute in that our rights are inalienable and the statement in the law that they cannot be infringed is absolute. It does not say they can be infringed a little but rather absolutely not at all. The 1934 gun control act is an infringement of our 2nd Amendment by definition of our law.
Tench Coxe, a member of our Continental Congress, made the intent of our 2nd Amendment clear as to what the definition of “arms” is in the Freeman’s Journal, February 20, 1778, asserting the following. “Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American…the ultimate power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God, it will ever remain in the hands of the people.”
These sheriffs already enforce infringements. The 1968 gun control act created inferior law that directly infringes upon the 2nd Amendment right as it is specifically designed to disarm an entire class of our population, those convicted of a felony and who have paid their debt to society.
Samuel Adams, organizer of the Sons of Liberty, participant in the Boston Tea Party, member of the Continental Congress, and Governor of Massachusetts, said of the notion of any such congressional legislation. “And that the said Constitution never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe upon or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms,” said arms as described by Tench Coxe as “swords and every other terrible implement of the soldier” and this did include hand grenades, mortars, and cannons, all of which could be lawfully possessed under our 2nd Amendment prior to the 1934 infringement.
The people’s arms are meant to be as powerful as or more powerful than those possessed by any soldier commanded by the government. These draconian infringements have been enacted for no other purpose than to give the insurgents that have taken over our government a monopoly on superior arms.
All of our rights have been suspended via a multitude of infringements too numerous to fully account in this article.
To the Sheriffs of Oregon I would say, “If you really believe the words you are saying, stop enforcing all infringements of every American’s rights as described in our Bill of Rights.” There is no such thing as a little infringement. You either do or you do not. It is like you cannot be a little bit pregnant. Liberty can be a bit dangerous, but how much more dangerous without it?
Now in addressing the contention that these new infringements can be justified via the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, I relinquish the floor to Mr. Thomas Jefferson, who wrote the following in a letter to Madison on July 31, 1788. “The few cases wherein these (proposed Bill of Rights) may do evil, cannot be weighed against the multitude where the want of them will do evil.”
God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.
