The Second Amendment Does Not Give You the Right to Own A Gun

The Second Amendment Does Not Give You the Right to Own A Gun.

If you have studied the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, you know that it is Our Creator who gave us the rights enumerated in the Constitution. The Right to own a gun did not come from the government. Nor did the Right of Free Speech.

In this video, Reid Heinrichs, of Valor Ridge, discusses the source of our Rights.

  1. No, it does not “give” us our Rights. What it does do is REQUIRE that those that serve within our governments PROTECT AND DEFEND OUR NATURAL RIGHTS, PROPERTY OF ALL TYPES, AND LIBERTY. Our natural rights are our property, and those who serve within our government are required by contract to protect them.

    The US Constitution REQUIRES that the people be armed and trained as the Congress requires the military to be trained.

    Richard Henry Lee: “Whereas, 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; nor does it follow from this, that all promiscuously must go into actual service on every occasion. The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle; and when we see many men disposed to practice upon it, whenever they can prevail, no wonder true republicans are for carefully guarding against it.” (1788, Initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights)

    George Washington: “It may be laid down, as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every citizen who enjoys the protection of a free government…, but even of his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency.” (“Sentiments on a Peace Establishment”, letter to Alexander Hamilton; “The Writings of George Washington”)

    “Men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, – ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness;’ and to ‘secure,’ not grant or create, these rights, governments are instituted. That property which a man has honestly acquired he retains full control of, subject to these limitations: first, that he shall not use it to his neighbor’s injury, and that does not mean that he must use it for his neighbor’s benefit: second, that if he devotes it to a public use, he gives to the public a right to control that use; and third, that whenever the public needs require, the public may take it upon payment of due compensation.” Budd v. People of State of New York, 143 U.S. 517 (1892).

    Our right of self defense is our own PROPERTY, and those that serve in governmental positions are REQUIRED in writing and by Oath to protect it.

    “Constitution of this state declares, among inalienable rights of each citizen, that of acquiring, possessing and protecting property. This is one of primary objects of government, is guaranteed by constitution, and cannot be impaired by legislation.” Billings v. Hall (1857), 7 C. 1.

    “Right of protecting property, declared inalienable by constitution, is not mere right to protect it by individual force, but right to protect it by law of land, and force of body politic.” Billings v. Hall (1857), 7 C. 1.

    “To say that one may not defend his own property is usurpation of power by legislature.” O’Connell v. Judnich (1925), 71 C.A.386, 235 P. 664.

    “Owner has constitutional right to use and enjoyment of his property.” Simpson v. Los Angeles (1935), 4 C.2d 60, 47 P.2d 474.

    “Right of property antedates all constitutions. Every person has right to enjoy his property and improve it according to his own desires in any way consistent with rights of others.” People v. Holder (1921), 53 C.A. 45, 199 P. 832.

    “Constitutional guarantee securing to every person right of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property refers to right to possess absolutely and unqualifiedly every species of property recognized by law and all rights incidental thereto, including right to dispose of such property in such manner as he pleases.” People v. Davenport (1937), 21 C.A. 292, 69 P.2d 396.

    “But whenever the operation and effect of any general regulation is to extinguish or destroy that which by law of the land is the property of any person, so far as it has that effect, it is unconstitutional and void. Thus, a law is considered as being a deprivation of property within the meaning of this constitutional guaranty if it deprives an owner of one of its essential attributes, destroys its value, restricts or interrupts its common, necessary, or profitable use, hampers the owner in the application of it to the purposes of trade, or imposes conditions upon the right to hold or use it and thereby seriously impairs its value.” (Statute) 167 Am. Jur. 2d, Constitutional Law, Section 369.

    The Framers believed the same as many of history’s great philosophers who held that “concerns for freedom could not be separated from concerns for property” and that the Framers knew “inadequately secured property rights could render vulnerable even the fundamental liberties of speech, press, and meaningful political participation.” (Book, “The United States Constitution”, W. Mead) {Yet we have “Asset Forfeiture” which is by our Laws, THEFT BY GOVERNMENT}

    Or, as the Framers themselves said concerning the people’s property;

    John Adams: “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it anarchy and tyranny commence. If “Thou shalt not covet,” and “Thou shalt not steal,” were not commandments of heaven, they must be made inviolable precepts in every society before it can be civilized or made free.’

    John Adams: “Property is surely a right of mankind, as really as liberty”.

    James Madison: “Government is instituted to protect property of every sort; as well that which lies in the various rights of individuals, as that which the term particularly expresses. This being the end of government, that alone is a just government, which impartially secures to every man, whatever is his own.”

  2. The 2nd Amendment establishes a State-sanctioned militia and then goes to say that, this militia talk is not to be construed as to mean that one must be in a State-sanctioned militia to own a firearm (or to ‘bear’ any firearm). Somewhere between the end of the Civil War and the 20th Century, the States surrendered away their militias in exchange for Federal money and control. Our “right” to “keep and bear arms” comes from the “right” of self-defense, which is inherent to our very existence: our life, limb, property and liberty. All those come with the fact that we exist as living human beings, regardless if you believe you were created by God, a god, a bunch of gods or some random explosion thing. If you can’t protect and defend your life, limb, property or liberty, then you don’t actually have any of that. So i agree with this author. That said, the cities, counties and States have the right to regulate the visible bearing of arms within their jurisdictions, outside the boundaries of “private property”. This is because the proper domain of govt is the “public” domain. Short of crimes against life, liberty, limb and property (ie, verifiable, measurable damage), the govt has no place within the bounds of “private property”. Clearly, I think that everyone is at least a little bit ‘wrong’ about things.
