The Second Amendment is Not About Hunting

The article here was published in the January 10, 2013 edition of The Monroe Watchman, Union, WV in the “Letter to Editor” section.

Mind control and deception are ever-present dangers in our society. A major disappointment of mine that has developed over the past 50 years since my college days is that too many people fail to think before they act, and even fewer study facts before they act. The result is that too many people act on impulse based on some TV sound bite or some oft-repeated slogan, ideology, or political objective of some group such as “tax the rich,” “ban assault weapons,” and the now debunked mantra about “manmade global warming.”

The detrimental effects of legal chemicals sold by pharmaceutical companies have been demonstrated, thus requiring warnings to be placed on papers that accompany the drugs at purchase. Psychotropic drugs, in particular, function as mind control agents. Propaganda (an attempt at mind control) spewed by politicians and media mouthpieces is insulting, if not criminal. The Sandy Hook School shootings in Connecticut has brought to attention several problems in America including basic evil, insanity, the likely detrimental affects to those taking some prescription drugs, and the lying of many opportunists to exploit a tragedy. I repeat: evil, insanity, effects of drugs, and lying. So what is it we hear is the major problem in our society that led to the shootings? Guns, gun owners, and the National Rifle Association are the problems … unbelievable propaganda! The Homicide Report by the FBI for 2011 shows total deaths in America from rifles as 323 while deaths from knives was 1694.

Let me tell the reader for whom gun ownership is a problem; it’s a problem for anyone or any group (like the government) who desires full CONTROL over lesser subjects. For those in favor of gun control, I remind you that Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot are examples of those who gained full gun control. Governments were responsible for the deaths of 290 million people in the 20th Century. It began with gun control, and it usually goes like this: 1) ban some guns, 2) next, register all guns, 3) then, confiscate all guns, and 4) finally, kill all who openly disagree with the government. Believe it, history has a way of repeating itself, unless we LEARN.

Much to my disappointment, I heard or read what both of West Virginia’s U.S. senators said following the killing of innocent people at Sandy Hook. In so many words Joe Manchin said he goes deer hunting with a gun that holds only three bullets, and sometimes he only gets one shot at a deer. …So?

Here is a Jay Rockefeller quote taken from the January 3, 2013 issue of the Monroe Watchman, “West Virginia has a proud hunting tradition and respect for the Second Amendment. But most hunters I talk with know that prohibiting the use of military grade weapons or clips that can fire dozens of rounds in a matter of seconds will not impact those traditions, …” So? Here are the exact words of the Second Amendment:

“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.”

Here’s a message for Senators Manchin and Rockefeller, “The issue is the FREEDOM of law-abiding citizens to conduct the affairs of our lives without intrusion from the ‘Royal Class’ (in their eyes) in Washington D.C. who attempts to govern us serfs in every aspect of our lives from light bulbs we use to the firearms we keep. It is NOT about hunting! Read and re-read the Second Amendment until you understand what it says. Furthermore, if you go on national TV or write articles that appear in my local newspaper about the Second Amendment, please refrain from insulting the intelligence of the citizens of West Virginia with your talk about hunting deer and/or West Virginia’s proud hunting tradition.”

Gun sales spiked the first time Obama was elected. Gun sales spiked the second time Obama was elected. Gun sales during the past four years have spiked each time some evil/insane person under the influence of legal drugs, shot and killed multiple innocent people, and particularly when media loudmouths and certain politicians started talking about gun control following each of these tragedies.

These spikes in gun sales show me that many Americans are beginning to awaken, especially those who understand that the Second Amendment is about protection against TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT, and it has nothing to do with hunting. Furthermore I think Jay and Joe know that, so this leads me to believe they, along with several others, are attempting to deceive us in order to gain MORE CONTROL over our lives.
