The Righteousness of Owning Guns — Or, Putting Wads In The Pacifists’ Panties

Herschel Smith of Captian’s Journal has post up regarding a typically wishy-washy NRA board member who thinks the ‘rhetoric’ at pro-gun rallies is getting a bit too much.

In it, he explains what many government supremacists will never understand.  And that it is that they can go ahead and attempt to repeal the 2nd Amendment, because as much as they try to lie about it, that is, in fact, what they want.  But, although it would most certainly affect the life of the Free Man on a day-to-day basis, it does not, in fact, affect what my rights are in the slightest.

Government does not administer rights.  The only proper role of government is to protected pre-existing rights.

Here is what Herschel says:

I have weapons because God gives me the right to own weapons, not the second amendment.  The opinions of the people are as subject to the vicissitudes of ideology as the times in which they live, and the mind of man cannot be entrusted with the rights of mankind.  If Mr. King is placing his trust in the people, he is building his house on sand.

My rights are what they are by divine pronouncement.  It is righteous to own guns because it reflects the character of the Almighty.  Without this I’m no different than the statist thugs and collectivists who want to disarm me, except we happen to be on different sides of an issue.  It means everything … everything … to be right and righteous.

“It is righteous to own guns because it reflects the character of the Almighty.”  That ought to put a wad in some people’s panties.  As it should.

[Trying to get out of the habit of putting stuff like this on Facebook and instead putting it here and letting the WP plugin put it on Facebook.  Maybe my posting will be regular if I commit to that.  No promises, yet, but I’m going to try to pay attention to this blog more.]

Relative of Thug Flaunts Her Own Depravity

[Originally a Facebook post.]

Mr. Colion Noir has a post up on the thug who was justifiably shot while trying to rob a store and do who knows what to the employees.

You angry, Ms. Relative? I’ll give you angry. Do yourself a favor and when your kin gets out on bail and/or finishes his sentence, keep him locked up in the basement where you can fulfill your own damn responsibility and give him the ‘help’ he needs. Better yet, join him down there in the dungeon and leave anything outside your own domicile to the adults.

I suggest that despicable woman from his family who was interviewed ought go live on a deserted island if she doesn’t like civil society. Coming to the aid of someone in distress is a time honored tradition. To suggest that the guy who fired the shots should have just left the store and let this guy do whatever he wanted to the employees shows what a low-life you are, Ms. Relative. Yes, the guy who shot him absolutely did have the right to shoot him. Not everyone would have had the stones to do that and not hightail it out of there. The thug held a gun to some employees’ heads. That is a credible threat. You initiate that kind of force, then you deserve whatever bad thing happens to you.

Yeah, he needed help, as the arrogant relative said, but unless you take that initiative and isolate him from the rest of society while getting him the help you say he needs, then expect individuals that he poses a threat to to deal with in a way that keeps them alive and healthy. You, as the family have the primary responsibility to get him that help. The public at large deserves to protect themselves and others around them from this thug as they see fit. He’s lucky to be alive and should be grateful to spend some time in the slammer. Message to families with sons like this: you let your son run loose like this when you know he needs help, then this is how he will be dealt with. Individuals will defend themselves and others and/or the State will put him away. Deal.

Stay Dangerous, My Friends.

Qot2C.37: Stewart Rhodes

Quote of the 2.37 Centuries:

And it is this claim of power, more than anything else – more than Obama Care, more than attempts at further restrictions on guns – that has put us on a very clear, inevitable path to a civil war because it is an attempt to subject us to absolute despotism. All of the legal infrastructure is in place. The Supreme Court had a chance to put the martial law genie back in the bottle in the summer of 2004, when it heard the Hamdi case. But instead they rubber stamped this claimed power to apply the laws of war to the American people by declaring “[t]here is no bar to this Nation’s holding one of its own citizens as an enemy combatant.” That is when the Court crossed the Rubicon once and for all, and put us on the path to civil war, As I noted above, if a person can be held as an enemy combatant, they can also just be killed on sight.

A frightening conclusion, to be sure. But it’s hard to argue against it.

Over my 49 years on this Earth, I have grown weary of conspiratorial language like “Did you hear that the government is spying on people through their smoke detectors? Did you hear about the Skulls? Freemasons are trying to take over the world!” But what I have seen during both the current administration and the former is more and more out in the open statements from government actors themselves their willingness to actually be dictators, to plunge us into absolute despotism. And not just willingness, but eagerness. AG Holder’s unbelievable unwillingness to give Ted Cruz a straight answer of “NO!” when he asked whether Holder thought it was constitutional for the US government to kill a US citizen on US soil without due process was amazing and exposed him as the totalitarian he is, likely unwilling to constrain his boss by that inconvenient founding document, the only thing that gives either of them even a shred of legitimacy.

Stewart Rhodes, educated at Yale Law School, with reference to an important paper he wrote while at Yale, makes an excellent, convincing, but frightening case,  that there is no turning back.  RTWT.

Civil war is on the horizon.

Stay Dangerous, My Friends.
