The NRA’s foundation sits on quicksand
Barry Bright

   Someone or their website made me aware of a very telling quote the other day, about the organization “Liberal” freaks love to hate, and the newswhores love to whine about.
   Yeah, that ‘special interest group,' the National Rifle Association, that represents millions of gun owners, and of course the gun industry, whose only combined purpose is to kill little children on inner city streets or with handguns hidden in nightstands.
   That’s pretty funny, since if one really looks at their recent record, and a quote by one of their own officers, a different conclusion might be reached:      
   "The National Rifle Association has been in support of workable, enforceable gun control legislation since its very inception in 1871.”  - NRA Vice President Franklin L. Orth
   As if that admission isn’t damning enough, they sent out an email this week in belated support of the plaintiff against Washington D.C., a case they originally opposed.
   The U.S. Supreme Court may sometime this year decide, probably not once and for all, and maybe for the evil ones, whether or not our ‘right to keep and bear arms,” is an individual right, or how ‘individual’ whatever clique of authoritarians are in charge at the moment decide it might be.
   Here’s how the NRA describes their ‘position’:
   “The position of the National Rifle Association is clear. The Second Amendment protects the fundamental, individual right of law-abiding citizens to own firearms for any lawful purpose. Further, any law infringing this freedom, including a ban on self-defense and handgun ownership, is unconstitutional and provides no benefit to curbing crime. Rather, these types of restrictions only leave the law-abiding more susceptible to criminal attack.”
   Now that sounds all cozy for the politically correct duck hunters, unless the powers who want to always be decide to outlaw hunting web-footed muck eaters because they’re ‘endangered’ or the noise is disturbing the worms or the funding for post-traumatized retrievers runs out. It might even sound good in the nearly fifty states that offers ‘shall issue’ permission to defend oneself.
   But if one looks at history and the reason the Founders wrote the Second Amendment, it’s a position built on quicksand in a bathtub with the fruit bars and traitors who write our laws standing by with the drain plug chain in their hands.
   In several cities and a few states right now if you use an ‘illegal’ handgun to save yourself, a loved one or a friend from attack or just your property from thievery you are ‘unlawful.’
   In fact after the idiotic Brits surrendered their guns and thus their remaining Liberties a few years back their evil “Liberal” government passed another law demanding that their sheeple endure what ever criminal attack is at hand until the bobbies arrive. One farmer found out he didn’t have a ‘right’ to defend his own home and spent more time in prison than the burglar.
   All this makes one wonder about a few things:
   When the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto were shooting Nazis, was that a ‘lawful purpose?’
   When the Branch Davidians shot back at the BATF Nazis, what few of them did, was that a ‘lawful purpose?’
   When the Canadians refused to go along with their commie government’s gun registration scheme they were breaking the ‘law.’
   When the militia on April 19, 1775 stood at Concord Bridge and on the Lexington Commons they were breaking British law. That's what the Brits should have done a few years back, to the “Liberal” freaks who told them they had ‘no right to self defense.’
   The ‘unlawful’ use of small arms, weapons, was why the Second Amendment was written. It wasn’t, and isn’t, for shooting ducks or the common burglar. Those are incidental to the right, our most basic right, to kill the bastards when they go too far.
   One wonders if the Supreme Court is capable of issuing a ruling similar to this one:
   The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power."  - Cockrum v. State,  24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)
   Apparently our traitorous lawmakers have been ignoring that one for many years. What if the SCOTUS throws this political football back at the lower courts and some black-robed “Liberal” shyster gets to issue his evil?
   There is no limit to their evil, or their insanity. A few of the Brits are coming to realize this truth. If we do not get in their face sometime in the near future and refuse, with force, to put up with their garbage any longer they will rule every aspect of our lives and there will no action we can take without seeking some form of ‘permission’ from them.
   The ‘them’ includes the Republicrats as well. Their actions in our ‘post 9/11’ Amerika prove them to be little better than the other wing of our socialist government.
   When we refuse to register or turn in our guns to the demagogues in our government we’ll be breaking ‘the law,’ and using our weapons for an ‘unlawful purpose.’
   Too many people in the NRA leadership obviously don’t get it. Or maybe some of them don't want to get it. Our enemies have infiltrated most every organization in this country, why not the NRA?
   Will they ‘get it’ when it matters? Or will they tell us to ‘comply’ with the law when the only ‘lawful purpose’ remaining is to turn them in? Will they then turn out the lights at their headquarters and go home to live in slavery?
   What are their plans for such a time? Do they have any politically correct answers for such an occasion? Do they have the courage to make them public? Ask them. I already have and got no real answer.
   One thing is for certain, if there is no answer to that ultimate question, there’s no point to having an NRA, unless all one wants to do is kiss “Liberal” ass and shoot ducks.
