The Building of a Nation: 2nd Amendment History 101

second amendment gun right to bear armsWhat has the average American forgotten in regards to basic American history? Where should we start looking if we want to know true Founders intent when writing the documents that defined our Nation?  Why were they so adamant on maintaining the “right to keep and bear arms” for We the People? These questions abound within the minds of 21st century Americans, and the answers seem pretty “black and white” to me. Especially when looking at them in context to the events that transpired prior, during and directly after we secured our independence and formed “a more perfect union” (a phrase inserted within our Constitution and hijacked by so many throughout the years, including Obama and Jesse Jackson).

The intent of this article(s) is to lay down some of the basic history that is responsible for shaping the minds of those men, the events that led up to the declaration of our soon to be won “independence” from King George’s tyrannical rule while giving the most reasonable interpretation of their words. Using factual quotes and documentation I’ll try to explain the reasons behind the words as it relates specifically to the 2nd Amendment in the most basic language possible.

Caught in the cross-hairs of duplicity…

I have had just about enough of Piers Morgan and his asinine rants about the level of violence in our country.  He spews his lies to anyone gullible enough to listen and it seems he has quite the audience (seemingly half the population), because he’s still on the air doing what he does best… stirring up controversy. The man is a bald face liar, citing statistics about his beloved homeland while trying to place his country on the same level as our own.  It’s like comparing apples to oranges.  There is no comparison between the two, none… nada.  Our country is the land of the free, home of the brave while his is one that lives in the shadow of a monarchy.  Ours enjoys freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the privilege, ability and right to bear arms.  England may have less gun violence per capita, but it’s simply because they’ve been disarmed and ruled over by the very same government we beat down and took our independence from.
