The Progressives’ Passive Attack on the 2nd Amendment

Gun owners and everyone who supports the 2nd amendment, be on guard because we are still under attack – and we’re losing. What is most shocking is that while many are aware of what is happening, there are also a great many who are completely unaware.

That isn’t an indictment on them, this is simply part of the design and plan of attack. It is by its design, intended to go unseen, unnoticed, and unannounced until it’s too late. In some ways and on some fronts, it may already be too late but gun rights supporters and advocates for the 2nd amendment haven’t yet lost the war.

This isn’t the first time this has happened either. It was this same strategy and technique used to take the pledge of allegiance and even God (in whom we trust) out of our school systems. The changes are always small and when they are finished, we have amendments made to our constitution that actually have us believe that it is for the best!

Minus the history lesson, the way they accomplished that feat was by a long, slow and arduous due process of legislating. The “separation of church and state” was intently meant to prevent a government from dictating, interfering with or controlling our faith and religious decisions.

Remember that Mother England was at one time the closest socialism ever became to being mistaken for communism. The Second Amendment, in much the same way, stems from lessons learned by the founding fathers beneath an oppressive government.

One story speaking about this ability to legislatively erase our rights and alter the Constitution of the United States reminded us of exactly what the Second Amendment says:

“The Constitution shall never be construed… to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

Aside from the genius and foresight exhibited in this written work, one of the most amazing in human history, did you notice the choice of words? Miriam Webster defines construe as such:

Definition of construe (con-strue | kən – strü )

Entry 1 of 2:

1: to analyze the arrangement and connection of words in (a sentence or sentence part)

2: to understand or explain the sense or intention of usually in a particular way or with respect to a given set of circumstances

Entry 2 of 2:

: an act or the result of construing especially by piecemeal translation

It is also very interesting to note that even the dictionary uses terminology like “piecemeal translation” to define construe. From those original words to the definition of those carefully chosen words, the intention of protecting gun owner rights is undeniable.

Unfortunately, that message has been ignored, stomped on and most importantly changed. How? By legislation that allows lawmakers to (say it with me now), “construe” these precepts.

We’ve lost rights about the type of guns we can own. We have lost the right to choose the type of ammunition and even have particular restrictions on cartridges.

You do realize that those changes might remain forever, it is something that has been permanently taken away. But that’s okay, you see, because we understand the possible harm such items could cause – in the wrong hands.

So instead of allowing us to arm ourselves however we best see fit because of those “wrong hands”, we will opt to create gun ownership restrictions. It almost sounds like it makes sense as if it had the makings of all the right intentions.

This is how the progressives’ are shaping the world the way they want it to be. They are smart, almost cunning but they overstep their bounds and infringe upon ours. The progressives’ won’t say they are attacking the 2nd Amendment and they will always say that it was the will of the people. The scary part is, as long as we continue to allow it to happen, on some level they are right.

It is an issue about gun rights and the 2nd Amendment but it is also about protecting our rights. That is all of our rights and rights of everyone.
