JPFO Article: "The Right to Shoot Tyrants"

From our friends at Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO):

Another article from Judge Andrew Napolitano -- looking at the true meaning of the Second Amendment and explaining that the right of the people to keep and bear arms is an extension of the natural right to self-defense and a hallmark of personal sovereignty. Each human being is sovereign, as the colonists were after the Revolution.

"The historical reality of the Second Amendment's protection of the right to keep and bear arms is not that it protects the right to shoot deer. It protects the right to shoot tyrants, and it protects the right to shoot at them effectively, with the same instruments they would use upon us." Another of the Judge's pieces well worth sharing, which can be found here.

It's always disgusting to see how the Progressives have deliberately changed the meaning of the very plainly-written U.S. Constitution. It appears that my generation was about the last to study the actual words of that document, and see how it protects the citizens & the sovereign States. 

Strange how so few are talking about that, until recently. I'm greatly encouraged to see that it's rapidly becoming the topic now. 

'Bout time.

Part of the irony of all this is that the same people that trash the constitution have a sense that their generation is smarter than the generation that wrote the Constitution. Yet the Constitution was published and read all over the states by many every-day people, as were the Federalist Papers. If the supposedly lest intelligent folks of the time could read and understand it, then how is it that it is considered too complicated for us everyday folks to read and understand today?

Concur with you AND PH... sigh

PH, the Progressive movement began re-writing the gradeschool curricula a century ago. It's apparent they've achieved critical mass in terms of dumbing down the population.

NFO, I know. It's tragic that we've waited this long to do anything about it.

Just before I unfriended someone last night they posted a piece that claimed that the 2nd Amendment was about protecting slavery.

Rev. Paul said...

Right, threecollie. That's why the word "slavery" is mentioned so prominently in the Amendment.

Oh. Wait.
