INTENT of the FOUNDING DOCUMENTS
America's founding concepts written down
on paper are referred to as the founding documents. Four
of these documents are:
The Declaration of the Causes &
Necessity of Taking Up Arms
The Continental Congress wrote the Declaration of the Causes and
Necessity of Taking up Arms on June 6, 1775. It explains why
Americans were at war with the legal, constitutional government
of the American colonies. This occurred 13 months prior to the
Declaration of Independence, a document possible only because
the colonists did not submit their "unregistered assault
weapons" to government control at Lexington and Concord.
In order to retain their natural rights, Americans were forced
to take up arms. 25,000 American died carrying
"unregistered assault rifles" in the 8 years of war that
established American independence. The document states - "The
arms we have been compelled by our enemies to assume…We
will…employ for the preservation of our liberties, being with
one mind resolved to die freemen, rather than
to live as slaves."
The Declaration of Independence
The war for independence was 13 months old when the Declaration
of Independence was written. Independence was not the reason
that the minutemen had fired on government troops at Lexington
and Concord on April 19, 1775. The minutemen were defending
their God-given right to have firearms, being fully aware that a
heavily armed citizenry was the only source of freedom. It
had became clear to the Continental Congress that the British
government would not stop its assault on the rights of the
colonists - independence was the only option.
The 56 members of the Continental Congress that signed the
Declaration of Independence could be hung for this treasonous
anti-government act. These men pledged "our Lives, our Fortunes,
and our Sacred Honor" in support of the Declaration. Some paid
with their "Lives" and their "Fortunes," but none gave up their
Sacred Honor. The Declaration of Independence established "God"
as the source of natural rights, and declared a "Duty" and
"Right" of the people "to throw off such government" that abuses
and usurps natural, God-given rights.
The Constitution for the United
States of America
The Articles of Confederation were replaced by the Constitution
for the United States of America, primarily to give the federal
government more power over taxation and commerce. The "united
STATES of AMERICA" (as it appears on the Declaration of
Independence) authored both the Declaration of Independence and
the Constitution for the United States of America. Note that the
STATES were "united," and the Constitution was written to
establish a government for the union of the states, to be called
the United States of America.
Only 39 of the 55 Founding Fathers at the Constitutional
Convention signed the Constitution. Sixteen refused and
warned that the powers being transferred to the new government
could be used to take away the freedoms just established.
They were right - the power to tax and the power to control
"commerce" are being used to override the Bill of Rights - to
control Americans, their rights, and soon, their guns.
The Constitution only limits government if citizens actively
enforce government limitations.
The Bill of Rights
Since the Constitution only assigned 17 limited powers to the
new government many of the Founding Fathers considered a bill of
rights unnecessary. But the anti-Federalists feared the power
being transferred by the Constitution and wanted no
misunderstanding - government was severely limited, and natural
rights were not to be "infringed.".
The purpose of the Bill of Rights was to clarify that
"unalienable rights," which existed before government was
formed, could not and would not be "infringed" by the federal
government in any way - PERIOD! But, as many of the Founding
Fathers warned, the Bill of Rights has been trampled by the
unchallenged power of the government of the United States.
The 2nd Amendment "right to keep and bear arms," the true source
of America's freedom and liberty, is about to disappear at the
hands of the once limited government formed to protect and
defend the rights of all Americans. The Bill of Rights only
limits government if Americans understand and claim their
very techniques that all governments use to convert
eventually use GUN CONTROL to establish
control of every one of its
