Intro: Arbalest Quarrel Series On Radical Left Duplicity, Mendacity, & Hypocrisy
New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- “Those whom heaven helps we call the sons of heaven. They do not learn this by learning. They do not work it by working. They do not reason it by using reason. To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven.” ~ Chuang Tse: XXIII, translated by the American writer, Ursula K. Le Guin; epigraph to Chapter 3 of her 1971 Sci-Fi novella, “The Lathe of Heaven.”
The radical left and progressives will crush America into submission if the nation continues to listen to the nonsense they spout, for it isn’t knowledge or understanding they have; and having no wisdom to impart, they have nothing of note to share.
Loss Of Our Nation Begins With Loss Of An Armed Citizenry
Never in our history, since the birth of the Nation itself, has our Nation faced a direct threat to its survival as it is facing today. This isn’t hyperbole. This is fact. Even in the face of the ravages of the American Civil War, and the calamity of the Second World War, and the threat posed to our Nation by Russia during its existence as the once-powerful Soviet Union, during the Cold War era, has this Nation come closer to Armageddon. This fact is plain as day, on constant display, having commenced on the very day the Presidency of Donald Trump began—on noon EST on January 20, 2017, when Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States.
Jealous and powerful elements both here and abroad have mobilized and joined forces to bring Trump down and have failed miserably. They are apoplectic over their consistent failures and have been raging ever since.
If these ruthless forces succeed in placing their lackey, their factotum in the Oval Office, in 2020, everything this Nation has gained through the sacrifices of American patriots, from the American Revolution to the present day, will have been in vain. For, Americans will lose everything that has defined them, and that has defined the Nation for over two hundred hears, commencing with loss of the right of the people to keep and bear arms, the most sacred fundamental, immutable right of all.
What Can All Of Us Do to Keep The Radical Left Anti-gun Mob, From Infringing The Fundamental, Natural, Unalienable, Immutable, Right Of The People To Keep And Bear Arms?
Tell your Congressional Delegation, and your State and local Legislators that you expect them to honor their sworn oath and commitment to uphold the U.S. Constitution, as this requires them to take action to preserve and strengthen the right of the people to keep and bear arms; and that means protecting the natural right of self-defense. It also means that such firearms that are in common use including semiautomatic rifles, shotguns, and handguns, as well as revolvers, should be available to the average, law-abiding, rational American citizen. How can we best achieve this goal? We can achieve this goal by meeting the threat to our most sacred, sacrosanct right by meeting those who would destroy our Nation’s Birthright head-on. Tell your Congressional Delegation to recommit to passing National Concealed Handgun Carry legislation.
The most effective way to attack anti-gun, Radical, Leftists seeking to weaken the Second Amendment that it may wither on the vine, is not—as all too many Republicans have been seen doing—by capitulating to the Radical Left on the issue of gun ownership and gun possession; nor is it by sheepishly agreeing with and groveling to Radical Left anti-gun politicians in the Democratic Party or to Grassroots anti-gun activists. Doing so won’t serve to preserve our sacred right, but, rather, will compromise our sacred, unalienable right. No! We must not capitulate, and we must convince Republicans in Congress, not to capitulate to the anti-gun mob. They must never surrender.
We Cannot Secure Our Nation By Relinquishing Our Firearms But We Shall Surely Lose Our Nation For Having Done So
Americans cannot preserve the Second Amendment by negotiating with those intent on destroying it. The Radical Left, along with the inordinately wealthy Globalist elites, who lust for world domination, have no intention of preserving the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in any form.
Were the anti-gun mob to get their way, an effective ban on some semi-automatic weapons would lead eventually and invariably to a ban on all semi-automatic weapons. And, from there, the Radical Left anti-gun mob would move for a ban on revolvers, single action, and double action; and, on and on, to a ban on single-shot firearms and black powder muzzle loaders. The Radical Left intends to confiscate all firearms, thus essentially negating lawful exercise of the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
The best way to defend the inalienable right of the people to keep and bear arms is by clashing with the Radical Left elements in Congress and in the populace who seek to destroy it—bringing the fight directly, unabashedly, unreservedly, and forcefully to them.
Keep uppermost in mind: the goal of the Radical Left is the same as the goal of trans-nationalist Globalist Elites. They both seek to undermine the United States as an independent sovereign Nation-State—to transform the Nation into a Socialist haven for millions of illegal aliens who have no understanding of our Nation’s history, any appreciation for our Nation’s Constitution, or of the nature of natural rights upon which our free Republic is grounded.
There is no guarantee that these anti-American forces won’t succeed in sitting a Democratic Party stooge in the White House in 2020, and they are plugging away to do just that. But, in the interim, with their plan of undermining the sovereignty of our Nation—if not sooner, then later—they know they must weaken the Bill of Rights. To do so, they know they must commence with a de facto repeal of the Second Amendment.
We see this occurring with the latest call for new curbs on semi-automatic weapons that the Radical Left subsumes under the false vernacular of ‘assault weapon.’ We see it in the Radical Left’s call for universal background checks, whatever that means. And, we see it in the call for application of so-called “Red Flag” laws, throughout the Nation.
As the Arbalest Quarrel has previously stated, anti-gun groups have undertaken three salient tactics in their aggressive assault on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. These tactics are always taken out of the closet whenever a mass shooting occurs, as such a tragic event operates as a useful pretext for the Radical Left anti-gun zealots to assail the Second Amendment again and again.
Their tactics include, first, expanding the domain of banned firearms. Americans see this in the ferocious, noxious, incessant attack on semiautomatic firearms, aka, assault weapons.
Their tactics include, second, expanding the domain of individuals who are not permitted to own or possess any firearm. Americans see this in the attempt to impose draconian, unconstitutional “Red Flag” laws on thousands of average, law-abiding American citizens. Red Flags operate by turning this into a Country of Shoo-flies, the hallmark of the Totalitarian State, where people spy on others and pry into the affairs of others.
Their tactics include, third, making it increasingly difficult for Americans to exercise the right to keep and bear arms—increasingly difficult for those Americans who don’t otherwise fall within a statutory prohibition preventing them from owning and possessing firearms, to fall victim to oppressive Red Flag laws.
This third tactic involves making gun ownership and possession an administratively demanding, daunting, onerous, expensive, and psychologically depressing experience and proposition for gun owners, since gun owners will never know when something they do, or something they say, might tend to impact continued exercise of their Second Amendment right negatively.
We will demonstrate, through an analysis of the assertions and policy statements of the Radical Left, the true danger this political and social faction poses to our Nation, to its Constitution, and to its people. By extension, we will show how the assertions and policy positions of the Radical Left are incoherent and nonsensical, and that, on logical grounds alone, do not provide an intellectually satisfying and morally and legally sustainable basis for the transformation of this Nation in the way and manner they seek.
The Socialist Utopian dream that both the Radical Left and the Globalist “elites” envision, as bringing public order and comfort to its inhabitants, is doomed to failure. Indeed what it is they truly seek to accomplish is more likely a cold calculated ruse in which to bind this Nation to other Western Nations, in a reprehensible attempt to effectuate a one-world Socialist union of once-independent nation-states. In that effort, if they succeed, we will witness the dire realization of a Radical Left Socialist Dystopian nightmare; a nightmare that will bring misery, remorse, and profound unease to us all.
