In the upcoming movie by James Jaeger, “Molon Labe: How The Second Amendment Guarantees America’s Freedom”, the script deals strongly with the “Gun Control Lobby”, which is a handle covering various philosophical ideas embraced by progressive statists who seek to empower the United Nations to once-and-for-all-time strip away any American’s Second Amendment right to participate in his Constitutional militia and to keep and bear arms.
The basic conflict, philosophically and politically, consists in two opposing views about guns in general. The progressive statist holds to the utopian fantasy of a society in which there are no guns, and the conclusion which that view projects is that there will thereby be no deaths by gun.
The opposing view is held by Constitutionalists and Libertarians and Freedom lovers in general, and their view states that every American’s right to defend his person and his property against criminal encroachment is guaranteed in black and white writing in the original legal charter which created the highest authority of government in America, that being the Constitution for the united States of America. (The Second Amendment)
Their argument is not based on fantasy, but on fact, as gun ownership protects each year in America many thousands of innocent women, home owners, retail store owners or clerks. We have all heard accounts of cashiers who thwarted robberies, or women who protected themselves against rapists or robbers, and home owners who protected their homes and families against armed intruders – with guns.
The progressive news media in general, hawking the sanctioned view of the progressive statists who would like to disarm the American people despite their lawfully protected right to keep and bear the means of self-defense, invariably follows up any and every gun-related crime by emotional appeals to just get rid of those nasty guns which so many Americans own. The problem such a view usually fails to mention to a gullible and emotionally-charged general public is that the police cannot be on the scene when a crime against a person or business or home is in progress, and without the means to protect oneself and one’s property the victim in countless crimes has no protection from the police or Sheriff’s deputies – who generally are called to a crime scene once the crime has already been committed.
Oath Keepers sides, every time, with the Constitution as written, for it is the source of all legitimate government in this union to which all States are party. Our view is further substantiated powerfully when we observe that the U.S. Department of Justice under Eric Holder itself has taken the license (unlawfully) to actually send American guns to the Drug Cartels of Mexico to incite yet more gun violence on the U.S. / Mexican border. With a berserk Department of Justice, no American should expect that the government would or could protect society in the absence of private gun ownership.
I mention the above to introduce a remarkable off-the-cuff defense of private gun ownership by former Governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura, who shines nicely in the following brief encounter with a statist new world order cry-baby on YouTube:
