Posted: December 23, 2012 by ShortTimer in Crime, Culture, Government, Guns, Liberty, Second Amendment, Tyranny

Larry Correia is a guy with more gun knowledge and experience than most instructors and instructors’ instructors on the planet.  He knows his stuff, and has been dealing with many of these arguments and discussions being had for the last few decades.  His insight is very, very valuable, and I highly recommend the read for anyone who wants to be pretty well fully up to speed on almost everything related to this most recent bout of gun control discussions.

It’s a long read, but well, well, worth it.

Larry Correia’s “An Opinion on Gun Control”.

  1. “…The Bible knows nothing of rights, only responsibilities. Rights are easily licensed and limited (consider what has occurred with the Second Amendment since its adoption by the States). Responsibilities remain unchanged, regardless what the government says or does:

    ‘But if any provide not for his own [including protection], and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.’ (1 Timothy 5:8)

    “We don’t need the Second Amendment (which merely recognizes a right) when we have Psalm 149 (which charges us with a responsibility):

    ‘Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword [or today’s equivalent] in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
    to execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye Yah.’ (Psalm 149:6-9)

    “Implicit in this Psalm is that only the righteous are to be armed. However, since the Second Amendment was added to the Bill of Rights, the ‘right’ to bear arms in defense of ourselves, our families, and neighbors has been incrementally taken away from the unrighteous and righteous alike. The Second Amendment has actually facilitated gun control, including gun-free zones such as Sandy Hook Elementary School….”
