America is no longer a FREE COUNTRY. In a free country, ruled by law, with a foundation built on defined rights and wrongs, it is necessary that such a countries citizens retain the ability to protect its self from attack of any sort. This includes attack from citizen criminals as well as “government criminals”. What is a government criminal?
Attorney General Eric Holder allowed “Operation Fast and Furious” to take place under his watch. This operation allowed and facilitated the sale and transportation of illegal automatic, semi-automatic weapons, and other deadly small arms armaments, to be sold to drug cartels and other criminals into the country of Mexico. These weapons sold to Mexico's criminal enterprises was patterned after a similar operation undertaken under former President George W. Bush with with a major exception. The Obama Administration created no method of tracking the weapons sold. Was this an error on their part or a deliberately eliminated step of safety?
If it was an over site on the part of the administration, the individual(s) responsible for insuring the safety of the general public, in the countries affected, should be held accountable and prosecuted. However, if not providing a method for tracking weapons capable of creating mass casualties, was deliberately not implemented, this is criminal intent and should also be prosecuted, even if it includes the Attorney General of the United States.
As a result of lax or intentional negligence, a large number of people have died from these guns including United Stated Border Agents and Mexican citizens estimated to number in the hundreds, but accountability has been lacking. So, how does this affect gun control in the United States?
First and foremost, gun control in the United States, instituted by the Federal Government, is illegal according to the 2cd Amendment of the Constitution.
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.”
in no way does the Second Amendment state the Federal Government has the right to regulate who gets to own a gun or weapon. Neither does it say what type of weapon may be owned. Nor does it say criminals, civilian or government sponsored and supported, has a right to bear arms. Nor does it say anything about the President of the United States being the final authority of the stated Amendment. Rights not specificly granted to the Federal Government, shall reside with the state and its citizens. Any decision outside of those made by individual states, is an infringement on the rights of the states and its citizens, and a usurping of powers not granted under the Constitution of The United States. But, why does it matter?
The natural enemy to Individual Freedom is TYRANNY by a Centralized Government. Centralized government control has been a mass murdering, private property seizing, slavery protecting enterprise of the elitist, destined to self destruct from its introduction and inception into humanity. Pagans of ancient times tried it, giving absolute rule and authority to the King and Chief of the tribe, Island, country or continent. Up until the 20th century, wholesale and full scale mass murder was limited to warring factions and within their respective communities.
In the late 19th century, Karl Marx introduced Communism to the world and with it the lust for innocent blood and that of any in opposition. No longer were the egomaniacs seeking to be “little gods” in their own regions, but now had an accurate measurement of the entire planet and sought to own or control it.
