The 2nd Amendment is to keep the Peoples Arms Safe from Tyrannical Politicians like the Dems



MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, a White House presidential contender, confirmed Saturday at the New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention that his mandatory firearm buyback plan would not include law enforcement door knocks.

“No. I don't see the law enforcement going door to door. I see Americans complying with the law. I see us working with gun owners, non-gun owners, local, county, state, federal law enforcement to come up with the best possible solution. I have yet to meet an owner of an AR-15 who thinks it's OK that we have these kind of mass killings in this country,” O’Rourke said when asked by the Washington Examiner about specifics of his plan.

When pressed further about how he plans to enforce his proposal for those who would not comply, he responded, “How do you — how do we enforce any law? There's a significant reliance on people complying with the law. You know that a law is not created in a vacuum."

He added, "You'll have the input of members of Congress who are going to reflect their constituents' interests, and at the end of the day, I agree to get to a solution that protects your Second Amendment rights while protecting the lives of everyone in this country."

2. Since the beginning of our nation our citizens have harbored a significant distrust...

of government. I hold the view that it is foolish to trust a government that doesn’t trust me to own firearms. Today we are hearing politicians seriously stating that we should move from a constitutional republic to a socialist form of government. History shows that socialist tyrannies often first disarm their citizens.

The people who founded our nation were not in favor of disarming the citizens. ....

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote!”
-Benjamin Franklin

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”
– Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787

“To disarm the people…s the most effectual way to enslave them.”
– George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adooption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
– Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

“A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves…and include, according to the past and general usuage of the states, all men capable of bearing arms… “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
– Richard Henry Lee, Federal Farmer No. 18, January 25, 1788

The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them.”
-Zachariah Johnson, Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 25, 1788

5. Of course no rational person thinks mass murder is a good thing.

There's 15 million AR-15s in the US and the number of them used in mass murders is infinitesimal.

9. The civil war started when the British tried to take the firearms from the people.

It seems that the democrats are determined to learn the same lesson that the British learned.

11. " I see Americans complying with the law." Like they are in in states that have legalized marijuana?

What beta boy would see, in reality, is sanctuary states and cities and counties popping up.

Second Amendment Style.

And at such a pace it would make the illegal immigrant and MJ flouting localities jealous.

Lefty should be careful what they wish for.
