Deterrence

Deterrence:

the act or process of deterring: such as
a : the inhibition of criminal behavior by fear especially of punishment
b : the maintenance of military power for the purpose of discouraging attack

This is Why the 2nd Amendment, the Inalienable Right to Bear Arms, is integral to your Freedom.  The 2nd Amendment is simply a recognition of a Right every Human possesses.

Inalienable:

incapable of being alienated, surrendered, or transferred

It cannot be taken away, or surrendered by any man.

You have these rights.  Those in charge can pretend to take them away, and continue to try to convince you they can, but they are yours and will always be so.

The Founding Fathers understood this and made sure to put them in a place everyone would see them.

But Why?

Were they Gun Nuts?  Did they Hate Kids?  Were they just a bunch of Idiots?

Let’s think this through…

Simply put, The Inalienable Right to Defend yourself Deters all manner of bad behavior.

The Right to Bear Arms deters; criminals from breaking into your home, criminals from robbing you on the street, criminals for confiscating your home, criminals from hurting your family, criminals from enslaving you, criminals from oppressing you in every way imaginable.

The ‘compromise’ we have made with those who wish to wield power over us via physical or legal thuggery is deterrence… not prevention.  This is because we recognize there must be certain agreements in place to make sure we don’t inadvertently physically infringe on our neighbors individual rights.  We call this Government.  But our form of Government is designed to be very, very, slow.  Our form of Government is designed to promote the solution to our disagreements be found locally and personally by intentionally being slow to respond.  It is also designed to recognize our right to defend that which is ours beginning with our lives, our bodies and our property.  But most importantly, it is designed to give Individuals every opportunity to resist it.

The tacit acknowledgement of consequences, should enough of us choose to resist our Government, is the only thing standing in the way of our returning to historically ugly types of Rule such as the rest of the world still suffer today.

In the United States bad people, such as racists, thieves or politicians, must think hard before infringing on your Inalienable Right to Live Free.

But it doesn’t mean they won’t try.

That’s the Beauty, the Brilliance…

One doesn’t even have to possess a weapon.  The idea that someone around you might be armed is often enough to discourage, or deter, a Bad Actor from Acting Badly.

All of us must start by understanding that the 2nd Right in the Bill of Rights is not only responsible for the very Freedom you enjoy as you read this but assists in protecting it from this point forward.  Those who pine for power and want to Force you to do what they think is right without Argument or Recourse wish nothing more than to remove that Right, that Obstacle to their control, from you any way they can.

It’s that simple.

Sadly, our publicly educated Masses have been indoctrinated in Socialism, a sinister governing theory crafted by the 19th Century’s disenfranchised aristocrats, which promises equality with a deadly wink and a nod.  Most of us do not consider ourselves Communists/Socialists and if we do its most often because our educators have intentionally hidden the history of this poisonous idea from us.  We have been brought up being taught to believe those in positions of power are magically no longer human… Somehow our Politicians, Teachers and Law Enforcement Officers are not fallible, not self-interested, not ignorant or ill educated in any way.  We have been programmed to see them as beyond reproach and existing only for the well-being of others.  We have been taught that because of this we should obey them without question.  We have been convinced that we humans have somehow evolved to a more enlightened existence… even when presented with contrary evidence every waking moment of our lives.

In other words, too many of us have been Fooled, and because of that we are now being employed as Useful Idiots.

It is up to the Few of us left who understand what The United States means to the World to educate our friends and neighbors about American Exceptionalism and why we are the Brightest Beacon of Light for the Global Oppressed.  We have to explain the reasons so many of those outside of this great nation founded During the Age of Reason often sacrifice everything to live out their lives here.  We have to shout out loud why so many wish to escape to The United States of America…  And we must resolutely explain why any effort to reverse our unique course and return to the Oppression, Death, Destruction and Slavery of Mankind which is currently called Socialism must be resisted at every turn.

It is incumbent upon us to communicate how our Bill of Rights in its entirety makes us Great as it accommodates the permanent state of Human imperfection.

We should ask our friends to look around… and have them ask; “Why does no other Country on Earth Dare to recognize the Individual Human Right to such Freedom?”

The answer is historically obvious.  Those in power are fully aware that such and acknowledgement would drastically and permanently diminished that power.  Those in Control always wish to Remain in Control.  Our recognition of our Inalienable Rights by enshrining them in the First 10 Amendments of our Founding Documents was expressly designed to deter such behavior.

We’re Exceptional exactly because we have broken with Man’s long History of Oppression and Slavery.  We have broken with the Reign of Kings, Divine Right to Rule and Holy Blood Lines.  We have defied thousands of years and thousands of previous governing theories to create a miracle.

It is clear and easy to understand, unless you intentionally choose not to.

In the end…

You can no more ban individual’s weapons than you can ban individual’s speech because both are essential ingredients in the Worlds only recipe for Individual Freedom.

At this time we are seeing both being threatened.


Guns, Guns, Guns…

…and who owns them.

I’ve been paying attention, with unusual interest, to the debate surrounding the tiny newspaper in New York that released the names of firearms permit holders.

Clearly this was political.  Clearly it was legal.

OK… so why would anyone be upset?  Aside from the blatantly political move by the “objective” press….

1.  There is an argument that gun owners do not want “bad guys” to know they have a gun in their home.

I’m not sure I understand this argument… If I’m not home my weapons are secure.  If I’m home, I’m secure.  No problem.  I hope the “bad guys” all know… that’s kind of the point.

2.  There is an argument that law-abiding Liberals living around those who have publicly applied for, and obtained, firearms permits are a threatened by those permit holders.

Again, I’m not sure I understand this argument as law-abiding Gun Owners are not the ones committing crimes.  They are also connected in many cases of stopping criminal acts in progress.  (We can discuss who is the “first line of defense” in comments if needed.  I welcome it.  I have also heard Liberal talking heads say they would not want their kids in my home if they know I have guns… well I too do not want your kids in my home, soooo… we’re okay then, right?)

But there is one clear point here.

Yes, this exposure was intended to “shame” those who own guns by the Leftist Newspaper.  But it has turned out to be only shameful to the Leftist permit holders.  This fact should bring a smile to our collective gun owning faces.

You have to remember that to a Liberal, laws are for other people… not the Liberals who propose them.  The only people on that list of names who were “shamed” were those individual Liberals who champion Gun Control laws… for the Little People.   It is fashionable to be in favor of gun bans… being more outraged over every shooting than your neighbor… shaking your head in disdain over the proliferation of guns in America, etc.

This presents itself in the Righteousness associated with their Democrat/Socialist circle of friends by being in favor of all and any Gun Control.  (These are also the same people who if offered a sign for their front yard proclaiming “This Home is Proudly Gun Free” would refuse to put it up.  I know this because I have personally offered to hammer it into the ground myself…)

However, It becomes difficult to explain to your “Common Sense-Mainstream” Liberal neighbors that you too are a “Common Sense-Mainstream” Liberal when you have been outed as a gun-toting freak.

This is why there has been quick and focused amount of negative attention applied to this matter by the rest of the Leftist Media… because they’re well aware that a number of their members happen to have concealed carry permits and reside in New York and the surrounding boroughs, counties and states.  The very leftist New York Media who are NOT cheering this latest exposure of permit holders, know full well they are on deck for the next round of exposures.

So once again, the Hypocrisy of the Left is what is at issue here.  Nothing New.

Don’t be distracted by the first two arguments and pay closer attention to who is being offended and positioning themselves as the suddenly new champions of the second amendment and personal privacy.  You will find a growing number of Democrats whose voting records demonstrate their brand new, previously undocumented, love of both.  They have images to protect… don’t you know.

Keep Smiling!

(Update: Gawker has fired the next shot by producing a list of permit holders in NYC.  Hilarious!)

It’s worth noting that this story occurred several years ago… and very shortly after Gawker released the NYC list the ‘releasing of lists’ suddenly stopped.  It was not made illegal to release these lists… it just ‘mysteriously’ stopped.  Funny how Leftist Liberals do not like it when you turn on the lights.

The New Mentally Ill…

For almost 10-years now there have been discussions regarding what qualifies One as Mentally Ill.

This debate took a new step forward this morning.

With Barack Obama’s Executive Gun Control, and the Physician Requirement to report patients who are ‘Mentally Ill’, comes an important question.

Are You Mentally Ill?

Well, let’s see…

Depression is a Mental Illness. Are you taking Any Anti-Depressants? Prozac? Zoloft? Paxil? Celexa? Lexapro? Effexor? Pristiq? Cymbalta? Remeron? Wellbutrin? Elavil? Pamelor?

You’re Mentally ill.

Anxiety is a Mental Illness. Are you taking Any Anti-Anxiety Medication? Xanax? Ativan? Klonopin? BuSpar?

You’re Mentally ill.

Mood Instability is a Mental Illness. Are you taking Any Mood Stabilizing Medication? There are many such ‘Stabilizers’… let’s just say,

Do You have PTSD? Mild or otherwise?

You’re Mentally ill.

ADD or ADHD?

You’re Mentally ill.

OCD?

Yep.

Eating Disorder? Yes… too much or too little.

You’re in the club.

Seeing a Psychiatrist because… parents?

Still good.

AND… wait for it… Are You collecting Disability for any of the above?

Odds are… You’re up by default!

The Objective of the Left is to rid the Population of the ability to resist their Horrific Collectivist Ideas.

They are fully aware that The United States was founded on Individual Rights and paramount to those Rights is Free Speech and the Ability to Resist Tyrannical Government should it arise.

Socialists recognize that the Public has never, historically, enjoyed their institutionalized nepotism and Elitist wielding of Power over the ‘Stupid Masses’. And because of that, removing their primary source of self-defense remains a priority.

But they need you to BEG Them to enforce the removal of this defense… in the name of safety.

The push to Make EVERYONE Crazy has been going on for decades. From Mommies Little Helper to today’s myriad of
doses to make the World a better place.

And what if Doctors don’t report you?

The Lawyers are ready to place Liability Suits as fast as they can get their paralegals tapping away at their keyboards.

In the End, This is just one of the symptoms of Obamacare we all warned you about. It’s about control. It’s about you being kept. It’s about removing your ability to resist the Poison that is Leftist Progressive Socialism.

They have the rest of the World and they’ve screwed that up.

They’ve taken control of Cities and States within our Borders and they’ve screwed Them up.

Now they are Aiming for the entire Great Experiment in Self Rule….

So they can Screw that up too.

There is a Historical Consensus…

Socialism Always ends in Oppression, Destruction and Death of Innocent Citizens.

Where it hasn’t, it will.

Where it has, it has been Legendary in its Horror.

Why is there a single person alive still entertaining any variant of Marxism?

Because Force is a Drug. And Humans are Addicted to it.

It’s the only real Mental Illness.
