The Second Amendmend. We Don't Need it! (Part One)

The right of the people to keep and arm bears shall not be
—Bumper sticker in New Mexico
I think that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution should
be abolished, particularly the part that says, “The right
of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Why I think so? Because most Americans believe that the Second
Amendment gives them the right to keep and bear arms. That is
not only untrue, but also gives them a false sense of security.
Actually, the Second Amendment does not give you the right to
keep and bear arms; it only recognizes that unalienable right.
By the way, there is nothing in that recognition indicating that
you have the right to carry only unconcealed arms. Actually, people
who beg the government for an authorization to carry a concealed
gun are voluntarily forfeiting themselves of their unalienable
right to carry guns.
As the Declaration of Independence recognizes, “All men
are created equal, and they are endowed by their Creator with
certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty
and the pursuit of Happiness.” (meaning Property). These
unalienable rights to life, freedom and property are not given
to you by your government, nor is the government going to protect
those rights. This is the reason why the Second Amendment recognizes
your right to keep and bear arms to protect your life, your liberty
and your property — mainly from assaults from the government.
Therefore, the right to keep and bear arms to protect your life,
liberty and property is not guaranteed by the Second Amendment,
much less by the U.S. government. Only the arms you have an unalienable
right to keep and bear protect these rights. Surrendering that
right is just the first step to force you to renounce your unalienable
rights to life, liberty and property.
Some American gun owners have been saying over and over that government
thugs can only take their guns when they have to pry them from
their cold, dead fingers. Nevertheless, during the Katrina gun
grab, the gun grabbers didn’t have to pry the guns from
the gun owners’ cold, dead fingers: the gun owners sheepily
surrendered their guns to the gun grabbers. I think it is time
for gun owners to put their money where their mouths are.
In the late 19th century, the Cuban patriots
waged a successful war against Spain’s tyranny. The Cuban
soldiers, poorly dressed, most of them barefooted and lacking
in armament and food, faced a powerful army. The Cubans’
weapon of choice was the machete. A few months after the war began,
however, it was a common occurrence to see the heavily-armed Spanish
soldiers fleeing a machete charge lead by General Antonio Maceo
and his courageous men — some of them ex-slaves.
Maceo's idea of freedom is revealed in his words, “You don't
beg for freedom. You win it with the cutting edge of your machete.
Begging for rights is only appropriate of cowards, incapable of
exerting them.” Maceo knew it very well: he was a descendant
of slaves.My point is that the Second Amendment is redundant,
to the point of being foolish. This explains why, even though
your right to Life, Liberty and Property is mentioned in the Declaration
of Independence and mentioned in the Fifth Amendment, there is
no specific amendment solely devoted to mentioning that the right
of the people to Life, Liberty and Property should not be infringed.
Moreover, the Second Amendment seems conceived for freedom beggars,
not for free people capable of fighting for their unalienable
rights. Actually, even if the Second Amendment is abolished, and
the Constitution itself is modified or simply cancelled, free
people still have the unalienable right to life, freedom and property,
as well as the right to have the means they need to protect those
Also, how can anybody believe that the U.S. government is going
to protect Americans from the ones who want to deprive us from
our right to keep and bear arms when it is precisely the Invisible
Government within the U.S. government that is secretly working
hard to deprive us from this unalienable right?
Now, if you don’t have what is needed mentally and physically
to use your arms against anyone who tries to deprive you of your
unalienable rights to life, liberty and property, I suggest you
to voluntarily surrender your arms to the government right away.
Nevertheless, I am not the one who is going to criticize you for
your decision. If you value life more than liberty, it is your
right to live as a slave.
Criticizing the widespread government corruption and abuse of
power, the Roman satirist poet Juvenal once wrote, “Quis
custodiet ipsos custodes,” — Who can protect us from
our protectors? The answer is very simple: We ourselves. Only
we, not the government, can protect us from our government “protectors.”
Nevertheless, though this article may be construed as proof that
I am a gun nut, I assure you that I am not. Actually I am fully
for the banning of firearms.
My solution to eliminate the need for firearms is very easy to
Let's begin by disarming the criminals and the politicians (sorry
for the redundancy). Once the criminals are disarmed, we should
proceed to disarm the police, (again sorry for being redundant),
beginning with their SWAT teams. Once the criminals, the politicians
and the police are disarmed, we need to disarm the DHS, and the
rest of the alphabet soup of new agencies created after the 9/11
events with the pretext of protecting us from terrorism —
actually to terrorize us. And then, and only then, most of We
the People would not feel the need to carry guns — unless
you live in a bear area.
Finally we need to disband the present quasi-mercenary standing
army and their mercenary military contractors, and close all
U.S. military bases abroad. Moreover, we need to stop fighting
unnecessary wars abroad on behalf of transnational bankers and
corporations that are not American anymore. As General Smedley
Butler clearly stated, “There are only two things we should
fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the
Bill of Rights.”  We need to change the U.S. military
into a Swiss-like system of conscription, where all able citizens
must serve in the military for a short time, then become part
of the reserve (militia), and keep their fully automatic military
rifles at home.
That would be a truly peaceful America!
 This is clearly expressed in the 5th Amendment to the Constitution,
which states that no person “shall be deprived of life,
liberty, or property, without due process of law.”
 Most Americans seem to forget that we don’t need to
beg for the government’s consent to exert our unalienable
rights. Actually, it is the other way around. We have a government,
because we, as free men and women, consent to have one.
 Faced with the fact that it is not easy to deprive the American
people from their guns, the freedom-hating globalist conspirators,
led by the psychopaths at the Council of Foreign Relations, are
planning to do it through the UN Arms Trade Treaty.”
 Just let’s keep the Sheriff and his/her deputies dressed
in light-colored uniforms (not in Nazi SS black), and carrying
.38 Special, six-shot revolvers after changing them back from
law enforcers to what they originally were: peace keeping officers.
 James Madison clearly expressed his opposition to it: “A
standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not
long be safe companions to liberty.”
 Jefferson, Madison and Washington, also warned about the dangers
of foreign entanglements. See, http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/content/founding-quotes-noninterventionist-and-isolationist-positions-foreign-policy
 This huge army of citizens, and a small core of professional
military, will be enough to protect our borders, our homes, the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
 Switzerland, one of the most militarized countries in the
world, is also one of the most peaceful. Swiss government statistics
for the year 2010 record 40 homicides involving firearms, out
of the 53 cases of homicide in 2010, which is an annual rate of
homicide by any means (not guns only) of 0.70 per 100,000 population
was — one of the lowest in the world.
