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.” – 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution

With Puppet in Chief and “””””constitutional scholar””””” Obama (Sorry, one set of quotes wasn’t enough) threatening more gun control measures I figured I’d write a quick and dirty blog post about how ANY gun law, regulation, restriction, ban, etc…. is completely and totally unconstitutional and should be ignored. The BATFE in itself is a completely unconstitutional organization as EVERYTHING they do is 110% contrary to the 2nd amendment of the Constitution of these United States. Let me explain…

Let’s delve into the wording of the 2nd amendment shall we….

Well regulated. Many people use this as their proof text for gun regulations but in reality it is nothing of the sort. This phrase simply means regulated from within so it doesn’t require regulation from without. So the militia is to be controlled internally, but not as far as guns are concerned as we’ll talk about in a minute. It speaks more about individual militia structure than anything else.

Necessary. That means it is 100% necessary for the people to be armed to have a free state.

Free state. That is a state (not a country by the way), a locality, a land mass, that is free. Freedom is the absence of restrictions of any kind, including gun restrictions.

Militia. This one is easy. The amendment defines this word as “the people”. Ya, that’s everyone. However, more specifically it’s the people defending the country or just their town against tyrannical governments.

The right. Notice that doesn’t say the privilege granted by government. It almost infers duty now doesn’t it.

The people. That would be everyone. Since we’re in a separate sentence now it’s talking about the people as the collective and/or singular. Either way it’s everybody.

Keep. That means “retain”, “possess”, etc… in other words it can’t be taken away.

Bear. That means also to “possess” but goes further into words like “carry” and “use”.

Arms. This word means any weapon. That includes, but is not limited to ALL firearms, even suppressed full auto assault rifles with high capacity magazines full of armor piercing incendiary rounds. Things such as rocket launchers, grenades, tanks, knives, swords, nunchucks etc are all defined as Arms. If it wasn’t for Search Engine Optimization the title of this post would have said “all weapon regulations”…. Either way when the 2nd amendment was written it was meant to include ALL weapons of war. That’s right! Private citizens should be allowed to freely possess and use any weapon that the most elite special forces soldier possesses. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Shall not. Notice this doesn’t say “pursuant to”, or, “except in the case of”, or, “except for”, etc… Shall not is simply that. You can’t do it.

Infringed. That means to limit, restrict, regulate or violate. In other words this right can’t be violated OR RESTRICTED or limited in any way, shape or form. So, gun regulations (or knife, sword, etc…) are infringements on your constitutionally protected rights.

The constitution is the supreme law of the land and according to the 9th and 10th amendment’s (quoted below) the feds and states MAY NOT add any more weapons regulations since the constitution mentions it. Constitutional supremacy rules here. That also means they may not regulate the production or sale of said weapons. No state concealed carry license is over the Constitution. No gun ban of any kind is above the Constitution. Any politician talking about, proposing or passing gun regulations of any kind ought to be tried and executed for high treason against the Constitution of these United States.

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” – 9th Amendment to the US Constitution

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” – 10th Amendment to the US Constitution

All laws which are repugnant to the Constitution are null and void. (Marbury vs.Madison, 1803.)

You know what, if you want my guns that bad you can have my guns… But be warned they come bullets first!

My new carry pistol! That’s how much I think of this firearm. BTW pictures are NOT of my pistol. You don’t need my serial number lol.

I recently acquired a brand new Springfield Armory XDM 4.5″ 9mm Pistol, and let me tell you, this is one nice firearm!

There are two types of pistol owners out there. The Glock snobs and everyone else. To the Glock snobs there is nothing better than a Glock. To the rest of us, we know better. I’m of the latter group. Personally I don’t like Glocks. They don’t fit well in my hand. They don’t present well when raised, at least for me and they are just plain ugly as sin. Do they work? Of course, and they work well, nobody can deny that but there are other pistols that are just as good and even better for the same price, and even cheaper. The XDM line of pistols fit that category to a T. To a Glock snob that statement is heresy.

First of all you get everything you need in one place. All except for ammunition that is. The package includes the pistol (obviously), 3 magazines (19 round capacity), kydex holsters for the pistol AND the mags, a speed loader, three different sized back straps, and a really nice case for it all along with all the other accouterments every other brand new firearm comes with. Something that you get that’s not typical is a bore brush on a wire rod. This is a very nice touch. The speed loader has a weaver rail mount on it so you can mount it on your weapons rail OR the mag holster, which has 2 weaver rails on either side also. Here you can mount a laser or light when not on the gun (when holstered for instance). Even the carrying case has weaver rails!

Sorry Tony and Alisa if you read this I’m going to pick on you a little. This episode is about as hilarious as it gets. You can tell these 2 know very little about firearms. With that said try hard not to laugh at the terminology (BTW guys, it’s range BOSS) and listen to the parallels they draw to marriage. It just might do you some good.

Take this also as a nudge to get out there with your spouse and shoot! You can’t really call yourself preppers if you are the only one who knows how to use your firearms. If you’re down the rest of the family is vulnerable. I can only imagine these two guys dealing with a home invasion. No guns in the house to begin with, heck they live in California where guns are all but outlawed but just the utter fear that Alisa has toward that harmless piece of steel shows what living in that state does to you. I could never live in such a restrictive state. I’d rather live where I do where it’s already been 20° at night. Ya Tony and Alisa that’s a friendly jab to you guys too lol. Seriously though, gun homicides are way down though the public perceives them as way up due to our state controlled leftist media pushing the presidential puppets gun control (read, confiscation) agenda.

Full disclosure here, I’ve listened to these guys for a couple years on and off. I actually stopped listening a while back because I was so frustrated in my own marriage it was hard to listen to them. However, I smartened up eventually and got caught back up on their podcast. Not that my marriage is perfect, very far from it, but I’m trying and that’s what counts I guess.

Either way, as funny as this podcast was to listen to (almost too funny for 4am) it really hit home. My wife grew up in a family where her dad had a couple dozen firearms but never taught her anything about them because he was to busy working his butt off to pay the bills. So, she had as much knowledge about guns as Alisa. I grew up in a home where my dad worked at a gun factory but only had 1 and we only shot it once. I concurrently taught myself gun safety and ended up eventually teaching my wife and kids.

Now, my wife and 6 & 8 year old sons could shoot any weapon in the house if needed (and access was granted them… For all you people gasping, my kids don’t have access to any firearm without my or my wife’s express permission and unlocking, and they are highly supervised when they do shoot)

What I’m trying to get at its this. If I’m down, they are my backup.

Now on the topic of marriage… shoot together, stay together. What better deterrent to cheating than knowing your spouse can shoot? I’m joking, yet I’m not. Alisa, some advice. Shoot some more and eventually teach your daughter because as the old saying goes “a restraining order is just a piece of paper”. We all hope it never has to go that far but this is reality we live in. It’s better to have a gun and not need it than it is to need a gun and not have it. A pistol is the ultimate “rape whistle”…

There’s so much more I want to say but I’ve got to get to work.

National rates of gun homicide and other violent gun crimes are strikingly lower now than during their peak in the mid-1990s, paralleling a general decline in violent crime, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of government data. Beneath the long-term trend, though, are big differences by decade: Violence plunged through the 1990s, but has declined less dramatically since 2000.
