Why You Should Support Unrestricted Gun Rights

This article will be controversial to some people. Now, most likely, since you’re reading this site, you won’t find this article to be controversial, but, certainly, some people in the world will be shocked by what I’m about to say:

You should support universal gun rights.

Now, unlike advocating gun control, there are sane, rational arguments for universal gun rights. Since I’m writing in the United States, I’m going to start with what should be the only argument necessary: the Constitutional issue.

To put it simply: the right to bear arms shall not be infringed. Full stop. No exceptions. And, just to be clear, the Second Amendment did not place any limitation on the definition of “arms.” This means, for those who aren’t familiar with a dictionary, that any weapon is allowed Constitutionally.

But, since there are people who don’t care about real rights (and tend to want to make up other non-existent rights), let’s take the argument to a practical level: self-defense. T.J. Roberts says it well:

Anyone can kill anyone with a gun. That is one of the purposes of weapons. It is important to realize, however, that guns have saved far more lives than they have ended. Studies show that there are anywhere between 500,000 to 3 million defensive gun uses per year in America. The threat of immediate lethal force is a powerful deterrent to crime. In an overwhelming majority of these defensive gun uses, no one died or suffered injuries. The mere presence of a gun is frequently enough to stop a violent crime. People with guns save lives. Anytime someone talks about gun homicides (approximately 35,000 gun deaths occurred in  2017 with 22,274 of these being suicides and many of the homicides being self defense) and gun injuries (approximately 90,000 gun injuries occurred in 2017), they are lying if they do not talk about how guns save lives.

And, if that isn’t clear enough, let me remind you that a gun isn’t going to fire on it’s own. It will have to have had some intervention at some point in order to go off (Yes, even a dropped gun had to be loaded by someone). Thus, the gun is never at fault and is morally neutral. But your right to protect yourself and your family is not morally neutral. It is absolutely your right.

Because everyone has the right to protect themselves, everyone has the right to bear arms. Now, it’s time that we re-educate our governments to the truth of this and protect our right to bear arms.

  1. If you have a Gun you need to know how to use it properly {know everything about it and have used it enough to be proficient with it } !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  2. I agree 100% since the people are the government,we the people should have the right to own any thing the government has!! I mean everything,that is the only way we the people can control and or through out the government if needed! This what the 2nd amendment is for and why our fore fathers put it in the Constitution!!

  3. I agree with most of the posts on this article. The Second Amendment says what is says and for very good reasons. Let’s keep it intact. One of my legislators asked me for ideas. I unloaded people behavior on them and what we can do to reduce such issues of violence.

  4. For me it comes down to one choice. Do you want Satan to win or do you want God to win. Now I know that God doesn’t need any help, but if you profess to be a follower of Jesus, and believe in Him, then you would not want to die needlessly at the hand of someone who follows Satan. I am sure He would want to continue living, so that you could witness for Him.

  5. So, along with all of that, “Shall not be Infringed” is pretty clear to me. And keeping and Bearing Arms, means weapons of any kind, be it edged, blunt, or explosive. If you don’t care for my Religious connection, it doesn’t matter, neither does the government. There are people in our government who follow an anti-God platform, and would rather worship “Mammon”, Margaret Sanger, BAAL, and The World government of Satan. These people think that they are superior to us, and that our children should be their property to do with as they choose. We need our Weapons to fight them off, or at least keep them at bay.

  6. We should be able to see now that we CANNOT TRUST POLITICIANS,Democrat or Republicans to defend the Constitution and especially the Second Amendment! Republicans come back with a long winded reply on how they support your views and the Second Amendment then vote for more restrictions!!!!!!!! Look at Florida Red Flag law-Rick Scott Republican. Illinois Rauner,Republican,voted out now. Indiana-Republican. President Trump banning bump stocks,and now nominating Bill Barr-anti Second Amendment Attorney General of the United States,who also admitted he has no trouble in banning guns!!!!! There are more Republicans to numerous to mention weak on the Second Amendment,along with the Lunatic Democrats. Iowa has a Republican legistative leader pushing for red flag laws! Disgusting Matt Windschitl!!! He is given an A+ rating by the N.R.A!! WHY?????? We are being taken by all sides!

  7. Corrupt DOJ ,corrupt FBI ,trying to destroy the American voters rights to pick our own president to uphold our Constitution is beyond Tierany it’s treason ,they know it ,that’s why they want to take our guns away ,because in the very near future they will be hanging from the street lights in every town across America for the treasonous act of socialism and destruction of our Constitution and Bill of Rights ,rightfully so they should pay with their lives in memory of those who gave up their lives to keep America free.Get My guns ! yes they’ll get the business end of it 100%

  8. We had no problem with any guns until PROHIBITION a government implemented program that created GANGSTERS ( get rich quick people ) that used guns and bombs to keep what they thought was theirs …

  9. Absolutely Correct. The 2nd Amendment was written for a purpose, first and foremost is for self defense of yourself and your family or for anyone need of protection. 2nd is for your right as a Citizen to belong to a Militia in order to aid in protecting our Country if we are attacked by an aggressor on our own soil. 3rd is to protect from Tyranny from within our own Government which is why our Government presently is trying to ban certain weapons in the hopes of eventually doing away with our 2nd Amendment rights which we the Citizens of the United States of America can never allow this to happen. America Citizens having the right to keep and bear arms is the only right that is keeping our own Government from running roughshod over every Citizen except the so called elite and members of our Government. Fight for your rights because if the Government can remove even one of our rights then what is there to stop them from removing all of our rights. Think About It!

  10. . “Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.” – Patrick Henry, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 5, 1778

  11. prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” – Thomas Jefferson, letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787
    A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined…” – George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress, January 8, 1790

    “As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the military forces which must be occasionally raised to defend our country, might pervert their power to the injury of their fellow citizens, the people are confirmed by the article in their right to keep and bear their private arms.” – Tench Coxe, Philadelphia Federal Gazette, June 18, 1789

  12. “A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves . . . and include all men capable of bearing arms. . . To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms… The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle.”- Richard Henry Lee

  13. The Demoncrats want to take guns away from decent, honest citizens. The criminals and illegals will still have guns. The decent, honest citizens will be defenseless! Most of the American cities will end up like Chicago! Blood on the streets!

  14. This article makes it as clear as it could ever be made. The 2nd Amendment is only an affirmation of our inherent right to protect ourselves, our families, and those around us in a life or death scenario. No matter what man-made laws are put on the books, the can not change or override our inherent rights to life and the preservation of life. True Constitutional, law abiding citizens will always reach for and attain freedom. Our forefathers new that “true freedom” could only be had and kept with a gun! When guns are taken away and/or outlawed from a free people, they become slaves and servants to a gun toting dictatorial government-history has shown this very clearly! The loss of America’s 2nd Amendment and the “…right to keep and bear arms!”, will be the total loss of the freedom and liberty now in America!

  15. Everyone has a God-given right to protect themselves and others if necessary. The main aim of the 2nd is for tyranny as this was the purpose of the creation of the continental army. To the best of my knowledge, until 1934, a person could purchase any weapon he could afford. I remember reading a catalog when I was young, having cannons, etc. for sale. It used to be my “dreamers” catalog. Kind of like the sears and roebuck catalog for those who still remember the mail-order company before it became Sears. Our government should never “out-gun” it’s people, especially ours. Our government has only two jobs given it by our founding fathers. interstate commerce and boarder protection. It was not given the power of welfare, healthcare insurance or anything else. These were brought to us by lawyers. Even the 29 existing bureaucracies are illegal under our constitution. They are run by unelected bureaucrats creating regulations and laws that no one asked for except lawyers which feed their law firms.
    Just a little fyi, there are more than 363,000+ fed. laws and 753,000+ regulations on the books according to library of congress. Why? The purpose of the law is to serve us, not us serving the law. That is the purpose of our Bill of rights. It not only guarantees us individual rights, but makes us responsible for ourselves. Everyone is responsible for themselves, but there is no money in it for the lawyers. They have to make you responsible for the wellbeing for someone else so they can create a law-suit to leach money from people. Mayors and governors use laws to collect taxes, i.e. tickets, etc. This is the reason why we need to elect patriots and not politicians. Today they believe themselves to b our leaders, but they are public servants. They are responsible for mimicking our will not their own. Today they tell us what we are going to have, like gun control, Obamacare, close our last lead company, sell our uranium (uranium-1) to Russia when we are short of uranium in our own country.
    Sorry for the long rant., but you get the point of what I’m trying to communicate.
    Thanks for reading.

  16. People are always talking about the 2nd Amendment being about protection from criminals and an out of control government as if that is the only purpose of the second. That is WRONG. The 2nd is about ALL legitimate uses of a arms gun or otherwise. It protects hunting, collecting, formal target shooting, informal target shooting, and more with the primary reason being to oppose either an external (attack by another nation) or internal (government tyranny) enemies.
