Gun control: A fatal mistake
Posted By Bradlee Dean On 07/19/2012 @ 8:19 pm In Commentary | No Comments
As we know, Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” scheme has sparked outrage among the American people. The DOJ’s “Fast and Furious” operation placed guns into the hands of drug smugglers who have committed crimes through entrapment, which was directly responsible for the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Holder’s ultimate goal was to circumvent his own criminal activity by blaming gun stores in America for selling the very guns that the ATF put in the hands of smugglers. Of course, his plans were botched before he could blame the American people.
Today, news broke that the ATF Director Todd Jones recently warned employees that they will face “consequences” if they don’t “respect the chain of command,” in what Republican lawmakers are decrying as an “ominous message” meant to shut up potential whistleblowers in the wake of the “Operation Fast and Furious” scandal.
In the video above, released July 9, the acting director says, “… if you don’t find the appropriate way to raise your concerns to your leadership, there will be consequences. …”
Where America stands
Article 2 of the American Bill of Rights states:
“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 (encroached upon)” (emphasis added).
Founding Father and first president of the United States, George Washington, said that the right to bear arms is the “peoples’ liberty’s teeth.”
The third president of the U.S., Thomas Jefferson said, “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
And in The Federalist No. 46, James Madison, known as the Father of the Constitution and fourth president of the U.S., stated that the Constitution preserves “the advantage of being armed which Americans posses over the people of almost every other nation … (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”
Benjamin Franklin brings forth the affirmation as well when he said, “Never trust a government that doesn’t trust its own citizens with guns.”
This video below explains how 56 million people have been exterminated in the 20th century through the guise of gun control:
