A Second Amendment Right DOES NOT Exist.

You often hear folks refer to their “Second Amendment right”, no doubt with the very best of intentions. There is, however, no such thing as a “Second Amendment right”. The Second Amendment was merely an attempt to protect US citizens from the encroachment upon a God-given right by a repressive and/or tyrannical government.

The effectiveness of the Second Amendment has been marginal at best. There are presently myriad laws which clearly infringe upon that which, according to the Second Amendment, “shall not be infringed.”

[[UPDATE from 2019: The "Orange Obama", Donald J. Trump, has only added to and further advanced these infringements. Meet the new boss; same as the old boss.]]

The ultimate truth is this: We don’t need the Second Amendment. Were the Second Amendment to be repealed today, my God-given right to protect myself and my own would continue to exist.

To speak of a Second Amendment right is to acknowledge that the keeping and bearing arms is not a right at all, but rather a privilege, granted at the whim of human government.

Governments may well exercise illegitimate power (force) to restrict the God-given right to self-protection, which includes the ownership and possession of firearms, but they have absolutely no legitimate authority to do so. It is our right, duty and obligation to do all that we can to resist such illegitimate force. We must resist with both discernment and courage.

I certainly do not own all the firearms that I might morally possess, however “illegal” they may be by present statutes. But what I do own I shall not surrender regardless of what new laws may be passed or what new threats may be made.

The Conservative Economist, Walter Williams wrote the following:

Today’s liberals wish to disarm us so they can run their evil and oppressive agenda on us. The fight against crime is just a convenient excuse to further their agenda. I don’t know about you, but if you hear that Williams’ guns have been taken, you’ll know Williams is dead.

By the Grace of God, I shall stand with my Three Percenter Brethren against any further erosion of our rights.

What is a "Three Percenter"?

During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King's tyranny never amounted to more than 3% of the colonists. They were in turn actively supported by perhaps 10% of the population. In addition to these revolutionaries were perhaps another 20% who favored their cause but did little or nothing to support it. Another one-third of the population sided with the King (by the end of the war there were actually more Americans fighting FOR the King than there were in the field against him) and the final third took no side, blew with the wind and took what came.

Three Percenters today do not claim that we represent 3% of the American people, although we might. That theory has not yet been tested. We DO claim that we represent at least 3% of American gun owners, which is still a healthy number somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million people. History, for good or ill, is made by determined minorities. We are one such minority. So too are the current enemies of the Founders' Republic. What remains, then, is the test of will and skill to determine who shall shape the future of our nation.

The Doctrine of the Three Percenters
  • The Three Percent are the folks the Founders counted on to save the Republic when everyone else abandoned it.
  • And we will.
  • There will be no more free Wacos and no more free Katrinas. For we are the Three Percent.
  • We will not comply.
  • We will not register our firearms.
  • We will not disarm.
  • You cannot convince us.
  • You cannot intimidate us.
  • You can try to kill us, if you think you can.
  • But remember, we’ll shoot back .
  • We are not going away.
  • We will not compromise on God-given rights.
  • We are not backing up another inch.
  • And there are THREE MILLION OF US.
  • Your move, Mr. Wannabe Tyrant. Your move.
