Protect Your 2nd Amendment Gun Rights Before It's Too Late!
The fight against gun ownership.

Why we have the 2nd Amendment:
Hunting, self-defense and to fight in arms against a tyrannical government like we have today under Biden and the Democrats. A civil war is coming.
These losers are now coming after the gun dealers to cut out the middleman. Thousands of FFL gun dealers are getting their tickets pulled and are getting raided on trumped-up charges like my friend Jeff Regnier. Let me begin by saying it can happen to any of us, and it will.
My friend Jeff ran for Congress in 2022 at the GOP primary. Because he was active in Republican politics and right away the red flags started showing because it's not allowed by the Democrats. Then Biden decided to start yanking gun dealers' licenses to sell and seizing their gun ownership records. In the case with Jeff, they did just that, but he fought back. He challenged their audits and eventual revocation of his CCL, then they fought back with the full weight of the United States Government.
3 months ago, over 80 federal agents raided his home over non-existent banking issue. He and his wife were arrested with 2 million dollar bonds like cartel drug lords. They are victims of this tyrannical Biden administration. The actual victim was his 8-year-old daughter, who an agent pressed the rifle muzzle against her head during the early morning raid. This young angel will forever be traumatized.
Right now, he is fighting these sham charges. I support him 100%. He will soon find justice himself, as they will drop these charges based on lies.
Therefore we need to protect the Constitution and our 2nd Amendment gun rights. It is good to understand how we need to protect ourselves.
Let's examine the use of force that comes with owning a weapon.
Human beings only have two ways to deal with one another: reason and force. If you want me to do something for you, you have a choice of either convincing me via argument, or forcing me to do your bidding under threat of force. Every human interaction falls into one of those two categories, without exception. Reason or force, that’s it.
In a truly moral and civilized society, people exclusively interact through persuasion. Force has no place as a valid method of social interaction, and the only thing that removes force from the menu is the personal firearm, as paradoxical as it may sound to some.
When I carry a gun, you cannot deal with me by force. You have to use reason and try to persuade me because I have a way to negate your threat or employment of force. The gun is the only personal weapon that puts a 100-pound woman on equal footing with a 220-pound mugger, a 75-year-old retiree on equal foothold with a 19-year-old gang banger, and a single gay guy on equal foothold with a carload of drunk guys with baseball bats. The gun removes the disparity in physical strength, size, or numbers between a potential attacker and a defender.
There are plenty of people who consider the gun as the source of bad force equations. These are the people who think that we’d be more cultured if all guns were removed from society because a firearm makes it easier for a mugger to do his job. That, of course, is only true if the mugger’s potential victims are mostly disarmed either by choice or by legislative fiat – it has no validity when most of a mugger’s potential marks are armed. People who argue for the banning of arms ask for automatic rule by the young, the strong, and the many, and that’s the exact opposite of a civilized society. A mugger, even an armed one, can only make a successful living in a society where the state has granted him a force monopoly.
Then there’s the argument that the gun makes confrontations lethal that otherwise would only result in injury. This argument is fallacious in several ways. Without guns involved, confrontations are won by the physically superior party, inflicting overwhelming injury on the loser. People who think that fists, bats, sticks, or stones don’t constitute lethal force watch too much TV, where people take beatings and come out of it with a bloody lip at worst. The fact that the gun makes lethal force easier works solely in favor of the weaker defender, not the stronger attacker. If both are armed, the field is level. The gun is the only weapon that’s as lethal in the hands of an octogenarian as it is in the hands of a weightlifter. It simply wouldn’t work as well as a force equalizer if it wasn’t both lethal and easily employable.
When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation … and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.
When the British were trying to impose excessive taxes against the will of Americans, they were met with a farmer and his musket. When push came to shove in the Boston Massacre, the colonists responded by force to defend the home front, which began the Reveloutionary War. At the time, the British Empire ruled 70% of the world and its waters by brute force. The bully. With a lack of an Army or Ships, , we still had the musket, and we used it. The right to self-defense.
Today, Biden and the Democrats want to take away our guns. It is our right to defend the 2nd Amendment and our Constitutional rights. The founding fathers were direct in writing the 2nd Amendment. “ 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" It's about protecting your freedom. The right of movement. Your property and family. It's our American right!
