The 2nd Amendment and the center of the whirlpool is Virgina

Posted: December 24, 2019 by texascpp in Uncategorized

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. “

That is the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Long thought to pertain only to military, that way of thinking clearly is no longer valid. However, we must look at the intent of the 2nd Amendment now. It was ratified in 1791, not long after we declared independence. There was no organized military then as we know it now. Only ordinary citizens bearing arms.

It was those citizens that were tasked with defending our nation against what was felt to be a tyrannical government. And therefore, I believe is the intent of the 2nd Amendment. To defend citizens against a tyrannical government.

I know what you’re thinking, ordinary citizens can’t possibly go against an organized, highly trained military. Maybe not. But that does not take away the intent of the Amendment, nor does it take away the right of the citizen to bear arms. Now, as for the tyrannical government, I think it can be argued that the State of Virginia’s government is rapidly approaching that status.

To think that they can encroach on such a powerful right of the citizens. For what possible purpose? (And which of the citizen’s rights will they go after next?) I could go through history and spout off examples of when this has been done before and not turned out well, but I’m not going to. It’s been done before, we’ve all heard them. But it doesn’t turn out well. And it won’t this time either. People won’t willingly give up their guns.

85 out of 95 counties in Virginia are scrambling to solidify their 2nd Amendment sanctuary status. Sheriffs have said they will not enforce state gun control laws or gun grabs. State Democrats are now threatening the National Guard. If politicians and lawyers cannot find a way to compromise or calm this situation down, it. Will. Get. Ugly.

If this does not calm down could this kick-start something much much bigger? Quite possible. Virginia was part of the original Revolution. Will it be the start of a 2nd?
