Why We Are a Society of Guns: When government gets out of control, as Biden has, there is no other way to check their power

The Gunfighter’s Guide to Business

I’ve said it for years, and I’m saying it now to remind everyone once and for all.  Thank God that we have the Second Amendment. If we didn’t have it, that monstrosity of an executive order mandating vaccines that Joe Biden issued on September 9th would have been something else.  When a government goes wrong, and the Biden administration and all those connected to it have put themselves in all kinds of trouble, really too numerous to mention here, they need some mechanism to save themselves from the ramifications of bad decisions.  All governments, from their point of view, think they are doing the right thing. I’m sure Joe Biden and those around them think they are doing the right things.  Progressives and communists worldwide believe that a social utopia is a way to everlasting peace and joy.  But unfortunately, people get things wrong all the time, and there are no multiple correct answers.  If a political philosophy is wrong for life, for the world, then it can’t be made right through power grabs and executive orders.  And a political regime cannot be made to hide their failures through force, attacking people who might point out to them the obvious.  Once a political entity of any kind realizes that they have been a failure and seek to cover it up by threats and intimidation, then you get a hostile actor of political consequence that you’ll have to deal with.  Then knowing that you can thank the Second Amendment for being the only thing that is genuinely protecting us from this real tragedy of a Biden administration and a House and Senate controlled by the Democrats.

Now, this is way beyond partisan politics at this point.  This is a matter of life and death, not just our lives but also our country.  People who supported Trump warned everyone about this very kind of thing with the Biden administration, that they weren’t in control, and that other forces were at work that wanted to undermine our country.  Well, now you can see it, just as we said it would be.  Biden is as wrong as even the most extreme warnings attempted to caution.  But when things do go wrong, and you end up with a power-hungry administration that refuses to play by the rules, and attempts to subvert the checks and balances of our legal government become common and makes up rules from the bench, essentially taking all power away from the judiciary to check laws made by the legislature, the only measure you have to keep a law and order society in balance is the threat of violence.  Guns and having a society with more guns than people are the only thing keeping the Biden administration from all-out tyranny, as we have seen in Australia.  Because most homes in America have some firearm, it makes the power of government pretty useless when they decide to turn to authoritarianism to mask their many mistakes from the judgment of a public they quickly come to resent when they are caught.  Because of guns, Joe Biden could only issue an illegal executive order and show mass government overreach when what he wanted was to go full lockdown and keep the eyes of the public from the affairs of their many debacles.

Most people would find an armed defense of their country against an out-of-control government to be seriously debilitating.  It would be hard for them, but I see that people are thinking about it now where they weren’t before. I’ve spoken recently to very well-respected House and Senate members who genuinely believe an armed insurrection to take back our country is the only way out.  I personally would look forward to that kind of world.  With the kind of clear sense of justice that I operate with, it would be satisfying to have such a conflict with a clear winner and loser to strengthen our republic to a level it has needed to be since the Jackson administration or James Polk.  Not everyone agreed back then either, but at least the republic’s needs were more understood as the goal of government.  The means of getting there had differences, of course, but at least all political sides were mostly honoring our nation’s flag and not trying to destroy it the way Democrats do today.  We can’t work with people who at least won’t say the Pledge of Allegiance and will work every day to destroy our country from underneath us, then mask that failure, attempt to suppress us under unruly executive orders. 

The ultimate backstop and the only thing keeping the Biden administration and the global cabal behind his phony presidency is gun rights, the ability to have weapons, not just peashooters, but total military-style armaments.  The ability to form a militia when the good guys in our military become the bad guys with the simple signing of an executive order by a lunatic president who has gone full Nero, or Henry the 8th.  The Second Amendment was created because, in history, many powerful emperors and kings gained unreasonable power and used it to mask their insanity.  So to stabilize things in America from just that kind of trouble, we have gun rights.  We have votes which are meant to replace armed insurrection during administration changes.  The Republicans have pretty much followed the rules.  Democrats have attempted to break those rules with every election, most spectacularly with the 2016 election of Donald Trump. The riots in the streets, the FBI activism, the funding by the DNC of the Russian Dossier, and many other things opened the door for all to see just how corrupt the process was.  Then with the election fraud of 2020, nobody was hearing it anymore.  It was preposterous to suggest that there wasn’t election fraud.  Like we’re supposed to believe the denial of election officials at their word when it was they who allowed election fraud to happen?  But once election fraud happens or doesn’t happen, once people believe that it did happen and lose trust in the election process, what means do they have left to maintain a proper government?  Guns and the threat and will to use them to maintain law and order is the centerpiece of a proper, legal society. 

Democrats should never have implied that they wanted to cheat in elections by playing around with the voting window, mail-in ballots, and not maintaining voter rolls.  Once people lose trust in the election process, there is nothing to stop them from turning to violence to install a proper government.  We saw a slight hint of that on January 6th, which Democrats have attempted to use as a way to divert attention from their criminal actions.  But let me say, January 6th could have been a lot worse.  I thought it was a healthy protest and a reasonable warning to authorities.  It was a mild case of violence from a government that had done so much wrong.  People didn’t carry guns into the Capitol and didn’t go there intending violence.  Imagine what it would be like if we had mass action like we’ve seen recently in France and Brazil?  Yes, things could be a lot worse, and government should be scared.  If that’s the only way they will respect the people they are supposed to represent, well, then so be it.  But make no mistake about it, if America was not a country of guns, we’d already be taken over now.  This administration has shown its teeth and its frustrations.  It wants full authoritarian, communist power.  And because they don’t have it, they are lashing out.  But silly crappy things written on a piece of paper are not as harmful as bullets in guns.  And the only reason we haven’t seen death and carnage yet in this effort is that we have so many guns.  Never, ever forget that.
