What Being Pro Second Amendment Means

“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 liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.”

Thomas Jefferson
In a 1787 letter to William Stephens Smith

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Second Amendment

“Though it is an unpopular opinion among the majority of gun owners the 2A is about killing people.  It’s about assaulting and destroying people, entities, and governments in a morally justified manner.

People that shy away from the term “assault weapon” aren’t doing the 2nd Amendment any favors. Arguing about terminology is something that started over half-a-century ago with the NRA. Assaulting -is- the entire point of the 2A. It’s not a hunting rifle, it’s not a sporting rifle, or a target rifle. It’s a tool meant for the justified killing of humans. Everything else is a secondary application. Stating anything else shifts the Overton Window away from the crux of the issue, which is stacking bodies when a government has gone rogue and is operating outside of its Constitutional boundaries.

Arguing that “AR stands for Armalite” is a win for the opposition. Quibbling about term “assault” in the Assault Weapons Ban bills is a win for the opposition. When someone says; “AR15’s need to be banned because they’re designed to kill people efficiently” don’t cuck yourself by arguing about feral hogs or shooting competitions. Respond with “yes. that’s the point.”

THAT is the difference between someone saying they’re Pro-gun and someone saying they’re Pro-2a. You can be Pro-gun and be fine with Red Flag Laws, AWBs, and Conceal Carry Permits. Those kind of people can also say, “I’m Pro-Gun! I hunt too, but we need common sense gun laws.” How many times have you heard that? Being Pro-2A has nothing to do with hunting or sporting, it’s about your God-given, inalienable, right to protect yourself, your family, your property, and your country from enemies both foreign and domestic with up to, and including, justifiable homicide with the best tools available. You have that right from birth, no matter where on Earth you’re born.

The 2A is just a piece of paper that recognizes and protects that right. All of that being said, rights aren’t devoid of responsibility. It’s more than “I believe in the 2A so I should own machine guns to magdump into trash!!” It doesn’t end with ownership of weapons, that’s just the start. You need to be training with them regularly, purposefully, and deliberately. To the pro-2A person, Guns aren’t toys, they’re life-ending tools to be taken seriously.

You need to find members of your local community that take it as seriously as you do, and train with those people regularly. If you can’t find anyone like that, you need to educate those around you and bring them to that level. It’s more than just owning the gun, It’s becoming a well-rounded minuteman. That’s what being pro2A means.”
