The Second Amendment – Keeper of the Gate of Freedom
The Second Amendment, the right that protects all of the other rights, has already been slowly decimated by liberals, along with being under the first amendment censorship of tech giants who want to control all that we say and do. The direction we are heading is grim, and the future of our Republic is in jeopardy. People are moving in that direction out of fear…not out of strength or faith in the nation.
As we have stated before, this country is NOT a Democracy. It is a Constitutional Republic. But the leftists have changed the designation in nearly everything they speak or write. Even legislators who should know better keep calling us a “democracy.”
They are lacking in historical knowledge, every last one of them. Liberals are also actively changing the direction of America, forming attacks against the very people who are NOT violent, by claiming we are violent. It’s all about gaining power, the power to control others.
Navy Veteran’s Perspective
Larry Usoff, a US Navy Veteran and writer for Clash Daily, penned this op-ed about the danger to America. It reads in part:
In 1918 the Bolsheviks, under Vladimir Lenin outlawed gun ownership and specifically targeted non-communist party members for confiscation. Members of the party were of course allowed to keep their guns. If you notice, here in America there is a major attempt to portray conservative groups as potential terrorists even though they commit virtually no violence. Leftist groups like Antifa however, who identify as Communist, routinely get away with violent protests against their political rivals which often result in destroyed property and injured people. After the communists declared victory the firearms restrictions were codified into Russian law. All those who were found to be in possession of firearms were sentenced to hard labor in the concentration camps, where millions were murdered incidentally. After Lenin died and Stalin took over, the communists, because of the existing gun laws, were easily able to implement a system of terror where all who were found to be in disagreement with communist ideals or were considered a threat, were rounded up for extermination.
Parting shot: You see, every time a “strong man” emerges from a crowd, the first thing that he wants to get done is to disarm the population. In the end, Stalin eliminated nearly twenty million people who had been made completely helpless through the passage of gun registration and confiscation laws by people who believed they could create a better world. What the Russians didn’t understand was the creation of a better world meant the complete surrendering of their own wills and the right to exist as they see fit. Many people live day to day with the belief that what happened in Soviet Russia can never happen here because we have the Second Amendment. Sadly, there are also many people here who want to repeal the Second Amendment, not realizing that it is what protects it all!
The biggest problem? Our up and coming generation is in favor of socialism/communism over capitalism. They think Stalin is an OK person and have no idea (or don’t care) how many people he murdered. Most of them have never heard of China’s Mao Zedong, who also literally murdered millions. They think Cuba’s murdering Che Guevara was a “freedom fighter.” Several Democrats, including a former Supreme Court Justice, want to repeal the Second Amendment.
Is it too late? Can we save the Republic?
