(ConcernedPatriot.com) – Fellow patriots, it’s time to gather ’round the proverbial campfire. We’ve got some truths to tell about our cherished 2nd Amendment, truths that some folks would prefer to keep hidden.
Advocates for gun rights have been in the thick of this fight. And I can assure you, our Constitutionally-guaranteed liberties are under constant threat – and the enemy won’t rest until all patriotic Americans are disarmed.
And that’s why everyone should learn 5 truths about the 2nd Amendment anti-gun liberals don’t want you to know. Let’s get started.
Truth #1: The Founders Fought for the Right to Bear Arms
First things first, let’s remember why we’re here. Our forebears, the Founding Fathers of this great nation, literally waged war to resist the gun control measures that are now, sadly, gaining ground.
The American Revolution wasn’t just a tea party. It was a bloody, brutal fight against oppressive control. At its core, it was about the right of free citizens to defend their lives, their families, and their property. And that’s something that too many on the left seem to forget.
Truth #2: The Founders Rejected ‘Public Safety’ Arguments
Here’s the second truth: The Founders were familiar with—and firmly rejected—the same arguments about ‘public safety’ that are parroted by today’s anti-gun liberals.
The idea that removing weapons from the hands of law-abiding citizens will somehow make us safer is as misguided now as it was back then.
As Benjamin Franklin wisely said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty to purchase a little temporary Safety deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Truth #3: The 2nd Amendment Thwarts Tyranny
The 2nd Amendment was inscribed into the Bill of Rights for one core reason: to prevent tyranny. And it’s as relevant today as it was in 1791.
Our Founders created a vital safeguard against an oppressive government by ensuring the citizenry remains armed.
And in this age of increasing centralization and government overreach, this truth is more crucial than ever.
Truth #4: The Left Does Believe in Armed Self-Defense—For Them, Not You
This brings us to an uncomfortable truth: the anti-gun radicals believe in armed self-defense—but only for themselves. For all far-left’s rhetoric about gun control, many of these same individuals are protected by armed security personnel. Hypocrisy? You bet!
Truth #5: The 2nd Amendment Protects Modern Firearms, Too
Finally, despite what the anti-gunners may say, the 2nd Amendment doesn’t just protect muskets. It protects modern firearms, too.
The language of the Amendment is clear: “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Arms. Not ‘muskets.’ Not ‘weapons of a certain era.’ Arms. That includes the firearms of today.
The 2nd Amendment, like all parts of our Constitution, is a living document, adaptable and relevant to our current society. It was designed to empower citizens, to give us the tools and the rights necessary to defend ourselves and our democracy.
Gun control advocates can’t outlaw widely used firearms, as the Supreme Court has made quite plain. This includes the “weapons of war” the left rants about, which are regular semiautomatic rifles people have owned and used for decades.
In this era of ever-increasing governmental overreach, it’s more important than ever for us to stand up for our Constitutional rights.
So let’s take these truths to heart and remember: Our right to bear arms isn’t a political pawn—it’s a vital part of our American heritage. And it’s a right worth fighting for.
With over 15 million views, The Four Boxes Diner host Mark W. Smith will provide the information needed to debunk the left’s myths about our fundamental right to bear arms.
So, patriots, let’s continue the fight, stay educated, and remain prepared citizens. After all, it’s not just our right—it’s our responsibility.
