The Experts Agree,; Gun Control works!
Though he has lost the first round, President Obama has pledged to press the fight for more gun control. The definitive persuasive arguments contained herein are written in anticipation of the governments continued efforts to dismantle the 2nd Amendment. This article contains 10 irrefutable points against more gun control which are based in Common Sense, Natural Law, Baser Instincts and Constitutional Rights.
Before anything else is said, let us acknowledge the loss of innocent lives as the infuriating tragedy that it is. Further, let us vigorously express our empathy and sympathy for the survivors and the loved ones of the victims and pledge to hold the perpetrators accountable.

That having been said, this writer finds it first necessary to take the time to summarize 7 historically accurate points to lay a foundation for common ground, mutual understanding and feelings of unity among rank and file Americans aka WE THE PEOPLE. Too often, WE THE PEOPLE are divided on any particular issue on the basis of political party affiliation. This writer asserts that WE THE PEOPLE can establish a foundation of common ground, mutual understanding and unity by making ourselves aware of the history of Tyranny and Natural Law on this planet.
“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.”
Every American should use the information and concepts contained within these 7 historical points to assess not only the gun control issue, but every political issue that comes before them. Within the parameters of these 7 points, every single rank and file American will find they are less vulnerable to being manipulated against their own best interests by the “Powers that Be”. By adhering to the perspective of the world outlined herein, WE THE PEOPLE will find the greatest common ground, mutual understanding and unity. In so doing, WE THE PEOPLE can stop being divided and conquered by those who seek to manage and manipulate us like livestock for their own personal gain.
Historical Point 1 – Before The Enlightenment aka the Age of Reason(1650AD – 1800AD), most governments operated under the government philosophy of the “Divine Right of Kings” The king/Queen or other designated head of government was deemed to be a God or the representative of God here on earth. As such, no earthly being could challenge the decisions of the King. Further, under this philosophy of Government, all land belonged to the King/Queen/Government. Individuals were only permitted on a particular piece of land by the permission of the King/Queen or his designated representatives. Furthermore, rather than any rights, the general public had to rely upon these “permissions”
Historical Point 2 – Also, before the Enlightenment, the masses were told how they should perceive the world. Tradition, Superstition, Religion and the threat of physical punishment dictated how the individual should perceive the world, regardless of what their own physical senses told them. For example, “The earth is the center of the universe”. Copernicus and Galileo (and others before them) through their senses and reasoning knew the earth was neither the center of the Universe nor even our solar system. But religious dogma and the threat of punishment caused them to delay making their perceptions known to the world. This in turn led the masses to persist in believing the earth was flat & the center of the Universe long after learned men knew otherwise and could prove it.
In 1633 Galileo Galilei was convicted of grave suspicion of heresy for “following the position of Copernicus, which is contrary to the true sense and authority of Holy Scripture“http://goo.gl/ppPxK
Historical Point 3 – When the invention called the Printing press became widely distributed, information and ideas spread so rapidly that tradition, the church and kings/queens were unable to stop the ideas that were contrary to Royal Decree, religious dogma and/or tradition. This ability for the rapid dissemination of information was the dawn of The Enlightenment, again aka the Age of Reason. Individuals were no longer constrained to view the world in the manner they were “told to” by superstition, tradition, religion, society and/or the king/queen. Instead individuals could apply their own reasoning in interpreting the information their senses were providing them. They were free to reach their own conclusions and form their own perception of reality. And this freedom to Reason inevitability led to the understanding that the authority of the church and the King/Queen were not absolute, but rather could be challenged.
Natural Law is not the law of the jungle as some people mistakenly believe. The following quote on natural law was made by John Locke. John Locke’s political theories had a strong effect on colonial America.
“The state of Nature has a law of Nature to govern it, which obliges every one, and reason, which is that law, teaches all mankind who will but consult it, that being all equal and independent, no one ought to harm another in his life, health, liberty or possessions. The natural liberty of man is to be free from any superior power on earth, and not to be under the will or legislative authority of man, but to have only the law of Nature for his rule.”
Historical Point 4 – Rivaling the importance of the Scientific Revolution during the Enlightenment, was the reduction of Natural Law to writing. The Men of Letters delineated certain unalienable rights that were inherent in every person. The Men of Letters were quick to point out that they were not “inventing” Natural Law but merely putting into writing that which already existed in Nature. Awareness of Natural Law fundamentally changed the nature of the existence of the common person. Instead of living a life of seeking permissions to do things, suddenly the individual was empowered with Unalienable Rights. Life, Liberty, Property ownership etc were observed to be Unalienable Natural Law Rights every person was born inherently possessing.The Philosophy of Government known as the “Divine Right of Kings” was replaced with the philosophy known as “Consent of the Governed” John Locke, in his work known as “Two Treatises of Government”, asserted that Government was a Social Contract subject to the Consent of the Governed. He stated that individuals gave up some of their liberty and rights that people might live together more harmoniously. And further that the people could revoke this contract if the government did not act in accordance with the best interests of the masses. (Right to Revolution) Further, every individual had the right to own property and that property could not be taken away from them without due process, fair compensation and then only for legitimate government purposes like building roads, bridges, forts, government buildings, post offices and schools. At the same time, the Ruling Class did not willingly surrender their absolute power and adopt these newly exhorted philosophies of Natural Law. In the end, Governments accommodated the demand by the masses that their Natural Rights be recognized and worked them into it into their laws and manner of governance or, governments were overthrown by violent revolution (see French Revolution). The freedom to think for themselves, having rights rather than having to seek permissions and the ability own private property are known collectively as Self-Determination, an integral part of Natural Law.
“The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”
Alexander Hamilton – Principal Author of the Federalist Papers, 1st US Secretary of Treasury
Paragraph 5 – The ideas of the Enlightenment were incorporated into the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights of the United States of America. One will note that our Declaration of Independence was drafted and ratified in 1776; The Constitution was drafted and ratified in 1787 and 1789 respectively and our Bill of Rights in 1789 and 1791respectively. One should note that all of these documents were created within the last 25 years of the period of time defined as the Enlightenment. References to the concept of Natural Law can be found in the Declaration of Independence as “Laws of Nature” and “all men are endowed with certain unalienable rights, amongst these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” Further:
The fundamental understanding our US Founding Fathers had in drafting our constitution, is People under Natural Law have free will, and are not virtuous by nature. Therefore, governments must be constructed in anticipation of the nature of man. Acting on this knowledge, our Founding Fathers built into our Government and Constitution, various checks and balances.
Amongst these checks and balances were transparency and accountability.
First Principles – All people are equal under Natural Law http://t.co/YkDGq8opit
Paragraph 6 – Ever since the Enlightenment, the Ruling Class has sought to reassert their supreme authority, aka the Divine Right of Kings. They have accomplished this primarily through 3 different methods. 1) Controlling the information the masses receive 2) managing and manipulating the masses via their Baser Instincts and Emotions and 3) using the false left/right political paradigm to divide and conquer us. In the first case, they control the information that WE THE PEOPLE receive through propaganda, censorship and indoctrination. In this first case, since the Government can’t take away our Freedom to Reason, they can control the conclusions of the masses by controlling the information WE THE PEOPLE get to use to make those decisions. If the Government and Major Media only give WE THE PEOPLE the information that will logically lead us to the conclusion and decisions the government wants us to make, those are the conclusions and decisions we will make. At the same time, unaware of the Government’s ruse, WE THE PEOPLE will still think we have made the decision of our own free will. In the second instance, our Government uses Edward Bernays style propaganda to exploit our baser instincts and emotions to manage and manipulate us. (The Engineering of Consent http://goo.gl/MolA6 – Edward Bernays and the Art of Public Manipulation http://youtu.be/qiKMmrG1ZKU ) Our Government manipulates WE THE PEOPLE by exploiting our base instincts and emotions such as fear, empathy and terror. Think of it kind of like the American Indians hunting buffalo. The Natives jump up and surprise and scare the buffalo. The individual Buffalo instinctively start running away from the Indians based on instinct. They know that to survive they should run away from whatever frightened them. At some point all the individuals are all running away, following the herd… And before the individual realizes it, it is too late to do anything about being mid air off a cliff rapidly approaching the ground. This is the essence of Edward Bernays Style Propaganda… Panic the herd into doing something it thinks is in its best interest, but in reality is not. Our Government manages and manipulates WE THE PEOPLE to do what the Government wants us to do without most of WE THE PEOPLE usually realizing we have been managed and manipulated to do exactly what the government wanted us to do in the first place. In the third instance, our Leaders of the 2 alleged Political Parties orchestrate the rank and file members of their political party to hold the rank and file members of the other major party responsible for the actions of their elected officials. It just makes no sense for one set of rank and file political party members to yell and protest against the rank and file members of the other political party. All this behavior does is waste the time and energy of the rank and file members and distract the rank and file members of each major party. In the process, the rank and file members of each party forget about forcing their elected officials to be transparent and holding their elected officials accountable.
“Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it”
Paragraph 7 – This writer asserts that our elected officials and Government are no longer true to the principles and guiding documents that founded this nation. This writer asserts that our Branches of Government no longer act as checks and balances on each other’s power. This writer asserts that our elected officials and Government are no longer in compliance with Natural Law, nor the Constitution nor the Bill of Rights. Instead our Government has transitioned to a Consensus (they don’t like the term conspiracy) of collusion to manage and manipulate WE THE PEOPLE for their own personal gain, as though WE THE PEOPLE were their livestock. Yet, our Government officials manage to pass themselves off as honorable persons acting in the best interests of WE THE PEOPLE. The American ruling class has destroyed the natural mutual understanding and unity of WE THE PEOPLE. They have done this by dividing and conquering WE THE PEOPLE via the false left/right paradigm of 2 major political parties. Still Further:
All of our problems today emanate from the slow, persistent rolling back of the checks and balances, transparency and accountability our Founding Fathers built into our Government and Constitution.
First Principles – All people are equal under Natural Law http://t.co/YkDGq8opit
This writer submits to each reader that Natural Law and Natural Rights provides a universal commonality which is less subject to the manipulations of those who would betray the best interests of WE THE PEOPLE. This universal commonality is what our Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights are predicated and built upon. This writer further admonishes that it is up to each of WE THE PEOPLE to educate and immerse ourselves in Natural Law and Natural Rights as a defense to the tyranny, manipulations and exploitations of WE THE PEOPLE by our own government. WE THE PEOPLE, the 66% of us in the middle of the economic and political spectrum must not allow ourselves to be divided and conquer by false political divisions. WE THE PEOPLE are invincible if we refuse to allow our Government to deviate from the principles of Natural Law and Natural Rights
Being thus duly informed of the tactics of America’s Government and Ruling Class, it is up to WE THE PEOPLE, to resist being tricked into beliefs and actions that in the long run are not in our best interests. To do this, WE THE PEOPLE must force ourselves to form our perspectives of each current event and issue by grounding ourselves within the fair, equitable, straight forward system of Natural Law and Natural Rights. This as opposed to allowing our emotions and base instincts to overwhelm our logical thought process.
“On every question of construction [of the Constitution] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or intended against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
— Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), letter to Judge William Johnson, (from Monticello, June 12, 1823)
With that introduction, these are the plain facts about Gun Control:
1) When guns are outlawed only outlaws, psychos and our systemically corrupt government will have guns,
2) Is there any Common Sense in making more gun control rules to prevent criminals and psychos from getting guns, when by definition, criminals and psychos won’t, don’t or can’t follow the rules?
From this one incontrovertible truth that more rules won’t keep criminals and psychos from procuring guns or other means of large scale violence, it is clear what our government’s true ulterior motives are. In further controlling access to guns, they further suppress WE THE PEOPLE’s ability to challenge their authority by holding them accountable by force when mere words fail. This as opposed to the Governments false representation that their motivation is to prevent future gun related tragedies. The primary effect of more laws to control gun ownership will be to decrease the ability of WE THE PEOPLE to resist a tyrannical government, not to reduce gun violence committed by criminals and psychos.
When Pressure Cookers are outlawed, only outlaws, psychos and terrorist will have Pressure Cookers.
Clearly our duplicitous, amoral government is using and abusing the anguish from these latest gun tragedies to promote their own self-serving agenda. WE THE PEOPLE are being persuaded (manipulated) in accordance with Edward Bernays instinct/emotion based propaganda to surrender more of our liberty for allegedly more personal security. Again the reality being that our government actually wants to decrease our personal security and our Natural Law Right to be secure in our persons by making it more difficult to have a gun. Our Government really seeks to side step the Natural Law concept of “Consent of the Governed” by making much more difficult or impossible for WE THE PEOPLE to exercise our Natural Law Right to Revolution against an unjust Government.
“Hence also, the origin of all civil government, justly established, must be a voluntary compact, between the rulers and the ruled; and must be liable to such limitations, as are necessary for the security of the absolute rights of the latter; for what original title can any man or set of men have, to govern others, except their own consent? To usurp dominion over a people, in their own despite, or to grasp at more extensive power than they are willing to entrust, is to violate that law of nature, which gives every man the right to his personal liberty; and can, therefore, confer no obligation to obedience.”
Alexander Hamilton – Principal Author of the Federalist Papers, 1st US Secretary of Treasury
3) Those who trade liberty for Security soon have neither and deserve none… variations of this quote can be found for both Jefferson and Franklin.
Pressure Cookers don’t kill people; People kill people.
Do you really want to take guns away from everyone leaving good people no defense to criminals, psychos and the tyranny of a runaway government?
4) Gun Control is not about Guns, it is about Control… Government Control of WE THE PEOPLE.
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
5) Gun Control works! (sarcasm) Just ask Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Mao, Assad, Kim Jong-Un, Pol Pot, Castro, Chavez, Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, etc
Where the people fear the government you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people you have liberty.
John Basil Barnhill
6) Our Systemically Corrupt American Judiciary has abandoned the Rule of Law and Natural Law and reinstated the Divine Right of Kings.
Our Courts will just as deliberately and erroneously misinterpret the 2nd Amendment as they have the 11th, 7th and 5th Amendments to further advance the Government’s Repression of WE THE PEOPLE. (This is intended to only be a short list of the most obvious intentional misinterpretations of Law by the US Courts. It is not intended to be exhaustive list of misinterpretations of Constitution, the Bill of Rights and other laws by the US Courts)
“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what is will be tomorrow.”
James Madison, Federalist Paper no. 62, February 27, 1788
The 11th Amendment says persons WHO ARE NOT RESIDENTS of a state can’t sue that state. 100 and 200 years later, respectively, the US Supreme Court denied the plain wording of the 11th Amendment and ruled no-one can sue a state. (Legal Evil – In their own words – Section: The Great Betrayal of 1890 http://t.co/zRWSENHzmB )
“The Judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State“
If the drafters of the 11th Amendment had meant NO ONE can sue a state they would have said “by anyone” rather than “by Citizens of another State, or by Citizens or Subjects of any Foreign State”
“The Big Lie (German: Große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so “colossal” that no one would believe that someone “could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously.” http://goo.gl/uKgA7
7th Amendment – Right to Trial by Jury (http://t.co/em01qMIvSC)
Judges are supposed to be like sports referees or Court Traffic Cops. WE THE PEOPLE are supposed to be judged by a jury of our peers. Instead by gradual increment and machination, Judges far too often decide cases. They do this with faulty jury instructions, preventing certain evidence from being admitted to the official court record and/or by out right Summary Judgment.
“Never forget that everything Hitler did in Germany was legal.”
Martin Luther King Jr.
Private Property ownership is an unalienable Natural Law Right addressed by the 5th Amendment (http://t.co/em01qMIvSC Item 7C). The US Supreme Court alienated WE THE PEOPLE from this unalienable Natural Law Right by allowing local government to assert eminent domain over private property merely because the new owner could or would pay higher taxes than the current owner. The 5th Amendment restricted eminent domain to seizure for primarily infrastructure like roads, bridges, forts, post offices, government buildings and schools.
Divine Right of Kings Masquerading as Judicial Case Law http://t.co/em01qMIvSC
Under the Divine Right of Kings, all property was owned by the King or Government and any person was allowed on any land by the whim/permission of the king or the King’s representatives. How is kicking a private property owner in America off his land because someone else will be able pay higher taxes, any different from the King sending the Sheriff of Nottingham out to kick someone off a piece of land because someone else is willing to pay the King more money for permission to be on that piece of land? The Answer: It isn’t.
If, in the opinion of the people, the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in the way which the Constitution designates. But let there be no change by usurpation; for though this, in one instance, may be the instrument of good, it is the customary weapon by which free governments are destroyed.
— George Washington, 1796
And as Private Property ownership is an UNALIENABLE Natural Law Right; has not this unconstitutional interpretation by the US Courts fulfilled the requirements for WE THE PEOPLE to exercise our Natural Law Right to Revolution as stated in our Declaration of Independence?
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
US Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776
And in John Locke’s Two Treatises of Government (http://goo.gl/93VlJ):
Locke used the claim that men are naturally free and equal as part of the justification for understanding legitimate political government as the result of a social contract where people in the state of nature conditionally transfer some of their rights to the government in order to better ensure the stable, comfortable enjoyment of their lives, liberty, and property. Since governments exist by the consent of the people in order to protect the rights of the people and promote the public good, governments that fail to do so can be resisted and replaced with new governments.
The willingness of the American Judiciary to negate and/or undermine fundamental Natural Law and Constitutional Rights speaks to the necessity of WE THE PEOPLE being armed.
The judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working underground to undermine our Constitution from a co-ordinate of a general and special government to a general supreme one alone. This will lay all things at their feet. … I will say, that “against this every man should raise his voice,” and, more, should uplift his arm …
Thomas Jefferson – Letter to Thomas Ritchie, Sept. 1820
7) Our Government has subverted our unalienable Natural Law 1st Amendment Right to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances (without fear of punishment or reprisal).
For now coming on 8 years hundreds of Minnesota Citizens have tried to exercise their Natural Law 1st Amendment Right to Petition the Government for Redress of grievances. They have sought a hearing before the Minnesota State Senate and House Judiciary Committees to give evidence and testimony of corruption within the Minnesota Judiciary. In 2009, after 4 years of being denied a hearing, we were forced to have an Ad hoc hearing just to document some of the evidence and testimony before the people died, gave up or moved away. Again, this Adhoc hearing carried no weight. It was not before any Government committee nor Legislative Body. But that was all we were left to after 4 years.
“This is what is called the law of nature, which, being coeval with mankind, and dictated by God himself, is, of course superior in obligation to any other. It is binding over all the globe, in all countries at all times. No human laws are of any validity, if contrary to this; and such of them as are valid, derive all their authority, mediately or immediately, from this original.”
Judge Sir William Blackwell 1723 – 1780
Citizens who have participated in these attempts to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances have been illegally and unconstitutionally punished in a variety of ways;
- Adverse Court decisions arrived at in manners not in accordance with Natural Law Due Process nor the Rule of Law,
- Denial of Child Custody, huge fines for publishing the injustices of the Courts, etc.
- Disbarment of a Lawyer for refusing to disclose the protected communications between himself and his client.
- Destruction of Profession, Business, Finances, health and Reputation.
As examples, this writer encourages readers to read the matters of
Marlena Fearing (http://goo.gl/gmXn3)
Ms Fearing was illegally punished for developing low income housing which catered to minorities.
Lea Banken Dannewitz (http://goo.gl/LjdPt)
Ms Dannewitz was denied custody and access to her children (for what appears to be no legitimate reason to this writer and person’s familiar to the case)
Ms Dannewitz was further punished with massive fines for posting her criticism of the Court on the internet. (What free speech/Press?)
Dale Nathan – his book Minnesota Injustice (http://goo.gl/YHfO6 )
A lawyer disbarred and refused re-admittance because he refused to disclose protected attorney client communications and refused to say he was wrong for disobeying the judge as requirement for reinstatement.
Paul Volkommer (http://goo.gl/zaFbz)
A Founder of the Baldwin Township Fire Department and Township Board member who discovered unauthorized spending of taxpayer money. State Statute required he report the matter to the State but other Township Board members told him to ignore it. Mr. Volkommer was wrongfully terminated from the Fire Department for Whistle-blowing and then denied relief by the Court through his own attorney and the Court efforts to prevent Discovery and to keep evidence out o the official Court Record. He spent over 100 thousand dollars seeking justice and got none. This is the infamous case where Minnesota Courts ruled Lawyers have no duty to treat their clie.nts ethically
As regular readers of this writer know, this writer has suffered illegal and unconstitutional reprisal and punishments for his involvement in Judicial TAR (Transparency, Accountability and Reform) This writer has also suffered illegal and unconstitutional reprisal for his Fiscal TAR efforts.
“You only have power over people so long as you don’t take everything away from them. But when you’ve robbed a man of everything, he’s no longer in your power – he’s free again.”
What recourse is left to WE THE PEOPLE, when fundamental Natural Law, First Amendment Rights are denied? If WE THE PEOPLE cannot Petition our Government for Redress of Grievances and are punished for attempting to do so, what is the next logical course of action for WE THE PEOPLE?
This writer mentions these specific persons so that you may enlighten yourself as to the true nature of your government. The current prevailing method of American tyranny is indeed ingenious. Its demonstrations of power are more subtle, less impatient and plausibly deniable that the overt, ever present displays of power by communist and other dictatorial forms of government.
Instead of using brute force as other communist and/or dictatorial governments do, our American government prefers to rely upon the “Frog in the Pot” strategy. In implementing change, they prefer to make changes slowly and incrementally so WE THE PEOPLE do not notice the increase in the temperature of the water in the pot. If a change meets with too much opposition, they will stop pushing the change and/or accept defeat with the full intention of trying the change again in the future, hopefully with the voting public worn out, tired of hearing about the issue in question or public opinion changed through Edward Bernays style emotion based propaganda.
Voices of political dissent are not immediately met by brute force, but instead they are just ignored because so many just lose interest or are easily worn out from polite “getting the run around” At the next level, is the simply refusal of elected officials to return phone calls and/or hold hearings. Finally, if the political dissent continues to persist, punishments and reprisals of increasing severity are inflicted on the individuals or leaders of the voices of political dissent. And with the Major Media Complicit in the tyranny, usually no one other than the folks actually involved in the political dissent are aware that this is the true nature of our American Government. This, as opposed to the Benevolent, Respectful Public Servant Persona it portrays itself to be.
“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.”
John Edgar Hoover (January 1, 1895 – May 2, 1972) was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1924 until 1972.
The Elks Magazine (August 1956)
You, the reader, are encouraged to read the writings by and/or about these the efforts of your patriotic neighbors so you realize the true nature and extent of tyranny of American Government (Though you may not have noticed the change, the water in the pot is very hot) And further, so that you come to appreciate the sacrifices your patriotic neighbors are forced to endure in retaliation for their attempts to hold our government accountable.
Your Government is forcing your friends and neighbors to choose between holding your government accountable or having their quality of life and that of their loved ones and children material reduced by the illegal punishment and reprisal your Government inflicts upon them for daring to confront corruption and injustice.
SUPPLEMENTARY DETAILED STAFF REPORTS
ON INTELLIGENCE ACTIVITIES AND THE
RIGHTS OF AMERICANS
COINTELPRO & MARTIN LUTHER KING Jr
UNITED STATES SENATE
From December 1963 until his death in 1968, Martin Luther King, Jr. was the target of an intensive campaign by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to “neutralize” him as an effective civil rights leader. In the words of the man in charge of the FBI’s “war” against Dr. King:
No holds were barred. We have used [similar] techniques against Soviet agents. [The same methods were] brought home against any organization against which we were targeted. We did not differentiate. This is a rough, tough business…
…. The FBI’s program to destroy Dr. King as the leader of the civil rights movement entailed attempts to discredit him…”
The point of all of this being that your government is not and will not voluntarily allow WE THE PEOPLE to exercise our unalienable Natural Law 1st Amendment Right to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances. Our Government refuses to be Transparent and Accountable. As such our government has lost its “Consent of the Governed”
If our government refuses to be Transparent and Accountable to WE THE PEOPLE, What is our recourse?
If our government refuses to hear WE THE PEOPLE’s Petitions for redress of grievances; what then is our recourse?
And then, if our government deprives us of right to have guns; what then, is our recourse?
It would difficult, if not impossible to exercise our Right to Revolution without guns… And it has been clearly demonstrated that our government refuses to be transparent and accountable to WE THE PEOPLE, and refuses to hear or Petitions for Redress.
Only the point of a gun or the threat of the point of a gun is left to WE THE PEOPLE as a means to force our government to not only hear but act upon our Petitions for Redress of Grievances.
“Political Power grows out of the barrel of a gun”
Mao Tse Tung
8) Our Government has become a Plutocracy (Government by, and Justice to, the highest Bidder)
It was established as a constitutionally limited Representative Republic.
“For a country to have a great writer is like having a second government. That is why no regime has ever loved great writers, only minor ones.”
Our elected officials will not voluntarily return our Government to the status of Republic that it originated as.
Ergo, to restore or Government to the Republic it was intended to be, will require force, force made less resistible by the presence of an armed populace.
9) Private Gun ownership is necessary for WE THE PEOPLE to exercise our Natural Law Right to Revolution.
Public Dissent is near all time highs http://goo.gl/5Pbon
Gun Control is not about protecting children and the General Public from crazed gun men, it is about protecting our systemically corrupt government from WE THE PEOPLE.
“But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as in the Federal Government.”
Andrew “Old Hickory” Jackson, 7th President of the USA, Farewell Address, March 4, 1837
This writer implores each of you who were victims or friends and loved ones, of the victims of the recent shootings to not allow yourselves to be manipulated into trading WE THE PEOPLE’s liberty to own guns for the Government’s insincere and duplicitous promises that it will result in your greater personal security.
As if you needed further reason to distrust your government, consider this further duplicity of your government. It seems reasonable enough to enact laws to make it more difficult for terrorists, criminals and psychos from obtaining guns. But what the government doesn’t tell you is that with its other hand it is seeking to have certain groups of persons classified as terrorists or mentally ill… People like returning war veterans, persons belonging to groups such as the tea party and occupy movements, and various kinds of other political dissenters. Your Government did not tell you about that angle they are using to try to disarm America, did they?
“Literature transmits incontrovertible condensed experience… from generation to generation. In this way literature becomes the living memory of a nation.”
10) Its the Second Amendment; Stupid.
Our Government is no less evil that the governments of communist countries and dictatorships. The US Government isn’t less overt in crushing the voices of political dissent because it finds that assassination, abduction, imprisonment of political dissidents as practiced in other countries amoral. They don’t engage in those overt activities against American Dissidents very often because there are other more effective, and more plausibly deniable ways to oppress political dissent. And these more subtle ways of repressing political dissent have the added benefit of not enraging the populace as much as overt methods of repression. Have no doubt that if our government were not constrained by public opinion, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they would not hesitate to literally snuff out the voices of political dissent in America.
“…God forbid we should ever be 20. years without such a rebellion. The people can not be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. We have had 13 states independent 11 years. There has been one rebellion. That comes to one rebellion in a century and a half for each state. What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it’s liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of libertymust be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure….
Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, Paris, 13 Nov. 1787
And that is why the Founder’s made the Right to Bear Arms the 2nd Amendment after the 1st Amendment to ensure transparency and Accountability through Free Speech, A Free Press and the Right to Petition the Government for Redress of Grievances. The Founding Fathers knew that WE THE PEOPLE would need guns to defend ourselves from our own government.
“THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated…”
The Crisis, December 23, 1776
Finally, to the Powers that Be please take note; do not call upon this writer to moderate the anger of WE THE PEOPLE if violent revolution breaks out because you refused to assent to peaceful reform. You have infuriated a lot of people with your egregious tyrannical behavior and refusal to hear our Petitions of Redress. Your level of mercy and compassion (or lack thereof) in illegally engaging in reprisal and punishment of those of us attempting to exercise our Natural Law and Constitution Rights is well known.
Many of those you have oppressed in violation Natural Law, the intent of our Founder’s and the tenants of the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence have suffered greatly. Though Natural Law and the 1st Amendment require this Government to hear WE THE PEOPLE’s petitions for redress of grievances without fear of punishment and reprisal, you have both punished and reprised against those patriots who would dare exercise such right. By directive and/or by gossip, you have destroyed the businesses, professions and careers of those who would voice the basis of their political dissent. It is not difficult to recognize the anguish of those punished in this manner. Imagine the words of a spouse to their partner, mournfully or bitterly recounting to the patriotic political dissenter, the folly of making their political dissent known… Repeatedly reminding them of the sufferings and the decreased standard of living that the reprisal of the Government and “powers that be” has wrought upon the family. Imagine the heart wrenching aguish of a spouse whose family’s love grows cold because they can no longer provide for their family because they failed to keep their mouth shut and should have known better. Nor forget the anguish of each night looking into the eyes of their children and knowing that their children suffer and go without because they did not know trappings of Democratic Process and Rights of Natural Law are now but tools to delude the masses into an illusion of freedom and liberty.
And, even more devastating, is the use of the judiciary as an instrument of punishment and reprisal upon the voices of political dissent. The Rule of Law ignored, the Courts inflict retaliation upon the voices of political dissent in ways that can only be called deliberate inhumane, malicious and evil. Ney, call it “Cruel and Unusual Punishment”
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
despite the Common Law (Rule of Law) Convention “Presumption of Innocence” aka “Innocent until proven guilty”.
Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat “Proof lies on him who asserts, not on him who denies”
Roman 2nd or 3rd Century jurist Paul.
Watson, Alan, ed. (1998) . The Digest of Justinian. Philadelphia: University of Pennsylvania Press. ISBN0-8122-1636-9
Ei incumbit probatio, qui dicit, non qui negat; cum per rerum naturam factum negantis probatio nulla sit—”The proof lies upon him who affirms, not upon him who denies; since, by the nature of things, he who denies a fact cannot produce any proof.”
F. Nan Wagoner (1917-06-01). “Wagoner’s Legal Quotes web page”. Wagonerlaw.com
Political Dissenters, both Mothers and fathers, have had their children taken away and been denied visitation as punishment, with the further insult that Powers that be label it justice rendered in accordance with the Rule of Law. All manner of civil suits become just another manner of unconstitutional punishment inflicted upon the political dissenter yet is called justice in accordance with Natural Law, Common Law and the overall Rule of Law… And the anger reaches new heights in the hearts of true patriots who are punished by having criminal matters trumped up and triangulated against them
This writer himself recognized the anguish any wife or children of his would suffer f or voicing his political dissent, and chose to spare any other the agony of suffering by our Government wrath by not marrying nor having children. As such, without the constant feedback of anguished loved ones, this writer can maintain a calmer disposition than other voices of political dissent with Domestic Partners and Children. At the same time, this writer can empathize with the misery and anger of those saddled with providing material sustenance and happiness for a spouse and children.
Many of these victims of Government reprisal will take the event of a violent revolution as an opportunity to visit upon you, yours and your aiders and abettors the same level of mercy and compassion you have visited upon them for merely trying to peacefully force the government to be transparent and accountable. And, in one more act of patriotic rebellion, this writer will not intervene on behalf government tyrants as a voice of moderation, himself being keenly aware of the equation for the calculation of RISK and Reward each act of tyranny is predicated upon. Consider that a further motivation for you, the powers that be, to assent to transparency and accountability WE THE PEOPLE demand. And, further, as motivation to promptly hear and act upon our Petitions for Redress of Grievances.
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.”

Our government has ignored our polite and respectful overtures.

That only leaves one course of action available.
The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have receiv’d them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas’d them for us with toil and danger and expence of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it. Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath’d to us from the former, for the sake of the latter….

Gun Control? Hewey!
“a chicken in every pot and a car in every garage”;
in these days of constant attack upon Natural Law, Liberty, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, perhaps the slogan of WE THE PEOPLE who intend to remain free should be:
A gun for every citizen and within each citizen the restraint, knowledge and fortitude to know when, when not and how to use it.
Those were my thoughts.
Thank you, my fellow citizens, for taking your valuable time to read and reflect upon what is written here.
Please join with me in mutually pledging to each other and our fellow citizens our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to our mutual endeavors of restoring liberty and economic opportunity to WE THE PEOPLE as our Founding Fathers envisioned and intended.
