The Right To Resist Tyranny
U.S. House of (non) Representatives Vote To Disarm Americans
On June 9th the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 8 and H.R. 1446, a 2-bill package they deceitfully styled "Protecting Our Kids Act.
Watch the video on this page. The bill protects no one.
The Bill's provisions include banning high-capacity magazines, raising the age from 18 to 21 to purchase certain semi-automatic rifles, expanded background checks, new regulations on bump stocks and ghost guns, and criminal penalties for breaking new requirements regulating firearms storage on residential premises. These provide more excuses for the gun police to break down your in the middle of the night and put a gun to your head.
As shown in my previous post, the federal government has no constitutional authority to ban any type of firearm or magazine or to enforce background checks. Public safety provisions are within the sole jurisdiction of the states and local governments--not the federal government.
These bills are not likely to pass the Senate. Yet, when our communist government commits crimes with impunity and denies the rights of the people, a state of tyranny exists.
Since the founding of the country, it has been well-established that the people have a right to resist tyranny. The criminals in congress know this, that's why they want to ban the means to resist their tyranny:
“Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans. The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but where, I trust in God, it will always remain, in the hands of the people.” - TENCH COXE, The Pennsylvania Gazette (20 February 1788)
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.”- NOAH WEBSTER, quoted in An Examination Into the Leading Principles of the Constitution (17 October 1787)
“The corollary, from the first position, is, that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The prohibition is general. No clause in the Constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give to Congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretense by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both...".- WILLIAM RAWLE, A View of the Constitution (1829)
“And what country can preserve its 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 liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”- THOMAS JEFFERSON, in a letter to William Stephens Smith, quoted in Padover’s Jefferson On Democracy.
“My great objection to this government is that it does not leave us the means of defending our rights or of waging war against tyrants.”- PATRICK HENRY, June 5, 1788.
“The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”-JOSEPH STORY, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, in his Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States (1833), vol. 3, pp. 746-747.
Mother whose son was shot 'point blank in the head' tells gun grabbers: "I don’t need the government to save me."
“The majority falls prey to the delusion, popular in some circles, that ordinary people are too careless and stupid to own guns, and we would be far better off leaving all weapons in the hands of professionals on the government payroll. But the simple truth, born of experience, is that tyranny thrives best where government need not fear the wrath of an armed people. A revolt by Nat Turner and a few dozen other armed blacks could be put down without much difficulty; one by four million armed blacks would have meant big trouble. All too many of the other great tragedies of history, Stalin’s atrocities, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Holocaust, to name but a few, were perpetrated by armed troops against unarmed populations. Many could well have been avoided or mitigated, had the perpetrators known their intended victims were equipped with a rifle and twenty bullets apiece, as the Militia Act required here. If a few hundred Jewish fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful of weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars.”- ALEX KOZINSKI, Circuit Judge, dissenting in Silveira v. Lockyer, 312 F.3d 1052 (9th Cir. 2002)
“The historical record provides compelling evidence that racism underlies gun control laws; and not in any subtle way. Throughout much of American history, gun control was openly stated as a method for keeping blacks and Hispanics ‘in their place’, and to quiet the racial fears of whites.”- CLAYTON E. CRAMER, “The Racist Roots of Gun Control.”
