Gun Laws, Never Let A Tragedy Go To Waste

What is it with this state, the whole country and gun laws? We have more laws on the books now then we know what to do with, and yet the stupid socialists liberals that have infected our country with their diseased mindset keep using every tragedy, what did they say, never let a tragedy go to waste, to destroy our way of life, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, our uniqueness compared with every other country. They will not be satisfied until this country becomes nothing more then a pathetic socialist state, run by despots and the people controlled from womb to the tomb.

.

States that have the strictest gun laws are the worse for it and that’s a known fact but what does that matter to state politicians, to a government that wants the complete annihilation of what made this country the greatest in the world. Destroy our gun owning rights, make ammunition so expensive that the ordinary person can’t afford it. Make it impossible for the citizen to protect his home and family, or the sport of shooting and/or hunting..

THOMAS JEFFERSON

“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.

“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 invent against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” – letter to William Johnson (June 12, 1823)

THOMAS PAINE

“The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property.

PATRICK HENRY

“...who are the militia, if they be not the people of this country...?

.

“The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun.” – from debates during the Constitutional convention (later quoted with approval by George Washington), as quoted in Elliot’s Debates, 1836

.

“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.” (in the Virginia ratifying convention)

.

Here, every private person is authorized to arm himself,

.

“... whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them...” – Constitutional Debates of the Massachusetts Convention of 1788 (also attributed to A Federal Farmer, the anti-federalist)

.

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”

.

GEORGE MASON

“When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them;

.

“Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possession and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?”

.

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined....
