Will You Fight?

2nd amendmentThe Prepared Ninja

One man is brave enough to write what many Americans are thinking. This is reposted in its entirety from the Facebook page of One Million Moms Against Gun Control:

The taboo subject…sigh….guess it is time to start putting our cards on the table.

If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight?

This man has put down on paper what many people are thinking, but are too cautious to express openly.

I hope it never comes to what he is advocating, but I can certainly see where the possibility exists.

God help us all if it ever does happen.

PS Here is what Wikipedia has to say about the author:

Dean Garrison (born 1955) is a contemporary American author and crime fiction novelist. He was born in Michigan , grew up in the Indiana , Illinois , and Texas , and received his B.A. degree from Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Michigan . Garrison is a Crime Scene Technician in West Michigan . His research in the fields of crime scene investigation and Shooting Reconstruction are widely published in forensic journals under the name of
“D.H. Garrison, Jr.”

I feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.

About a month ago I let the “democracy” word slip in a discussion with a fellow blogger. I know better. Americans have been conditioned to use this term. It’s not an accurate term and it never has been a correct term to describe our form of government. The truth is that the United States of America is a constitutional republic. This is similar to a democracy because our representatives are selected by democratic elections, but ultimately our representatives are required to work within the framework of our constitution. In other words, even if 90% of Americans want something that goes against our founding principles, they have no right to call for a violation of constitutional rights.

If you are religious you might choose to think of it this way… Say that members of your congregation decide that mass fornication is a good thing. Do they have the right to change the teachings of your God? The truth is the truth. It doesn’t matter how many people try to stray from it. Did I just compare our founders to God? In a way I did, but please note that I am not trying to insult anyone. For the purpose of the American Government our constitution and founders who wrote it are much like God is to believers. It is the law. It is indisputable.

Our founders did not want a “democracy” for they feared a true democracy was just as dangerous as a monarchy. The founders were highly educated people who were experienced in defending themselves against tyranny. They understood that the constitution could protect the people by limiting the power of anyone to work outside of it much better than a pure system of popularity. A system of checks and balances was set up to help limit corruption of government and also the potential for an “immoral majority” developing within the American People. We have forgotten in this country that we are ultimately ruled by a constitution.

Why is a democracy potentially just as dangerous as a monarchy? Let’s look at something that Benjamin Franklin said because it answers that question more fully and succinctly than I can.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote. -Benjamin Franklin

Even 230+ years ago our founders were perceptive enough to realize that democracy was a dangerous form of government. How so? Because the citizens of a country can become just as corrupt as any government. We have seen evidence of this throughout history. Ask Native Americans and African-Americans if this population can become corrupt.

I think in 2012 we are seeing evidence of what Franklin was trying to tell us. Just because a majority of people may support certain ideas it does not mean that those ideas are just. In simple terms, just because most Americans love our president and voted for him, it does not mean that he has the power to go against our constitutional rights.

Next I’d like to review the text of the second amendment. It is very clear. This is the law of this land. So when Senator Feinstein or President Obama talk about taking your guns, you need to think about something. Are they honoring their sworn oath to uphold the constitution?

A well-regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State , the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
This is a pretty clear statement. The fact is that it took 232 years for the Supreme Court to even rule on this amendment because it has never been successfully challenged. In 2008 a case of Columbia v. Heller the Supreme Court ruled that a handgun ban in Washington D.C. was unconstitutional. One also has to take this into consideration. The Supreme Court supports your right to own guns. If you want to research this decision further you can start here.
For those who try to debate the spirit of the 2nd amendment, they are truly no different from people who will try to take Biblical quotes out of context to try to support their immoral decisions. The founders were very clear on the intent of the 2nd amendment. Let me share a few quick quotes here:

The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . the very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that is good. -George Washington

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

I could find hundreds of quotes like these. This country was built on the right to bear arms. It was built on the rights of an individual to bear arms, regardless of what his government or neighbor happened to think. This is crystal clear. Ironically the people who voice their opinions against this right have their free speech protected by your guns. Without guns in this country, all other amendments become null and void, simply because “We the People” will lose our power of enforcement.
We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple.

A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if I was gunned down, but in the end I would be the only true American among us.

Our framers were very clear on this. If my government comes to take my guns, they are violating one of my constitutional rights that is covered by the 2nd amendment.

It is not my right, at that point, but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty. What I am telling you is something that many are trying to soft sell, and many others have tried to avoid putting into print, but I am going to say it. The time for speaking in code is over.

If they come for our guns then it is our constitutional right to put them six feet under. You have the right to kill any representative of this government who tries to tread on your liberty. I am thinking about self-defense and not talking about inciting a revolution. Re-read Jefferson ’s quote. He talks about a “last resort.” I am not trying to start a Revolt, I am talking about self-defense. If the day for Revolution comes, when no peaceful options exist, we may have to talk about that as well. None of us wants to think about that, but please understand that a majority cannot take away your rights as an American citizen. Only you can choose to give up your rights.

Congress could pass gun ban legislation by a 90%+ margin and it just would not matter. I think some people are very unclear on this. This is the reason we have a Supreme Court, and though I do not doubt that the Supreme Court can also become corrupt, in 2008 they got it right. They supported the constitution. It does not matter what the majority supports because America is not a democracy. A constitutional republic protects the rights of every single citizen, no matter what their “elected servants” say. A majority in America only matters when the constitution is not in play.

I just wrote what every believer in the constitution wants to say, and what every constitutional blogger needs to write. The truth of the matter is that this type of speech is viewed as dangerous and radical or subversive, and it could gain me a world of trouble that I do not want. It is also the truth. To make myself clear I will tell you again. If they come for your guns it is your right to use those guns against them and to kill them. You are protected by our constitution.

Most of the articles I am reading on the subject are trying to give you clues without just coming out and saying it. I understand that because certain things in this country will get you on a list that you don’t want to be on. I may well be on that list. This blog is small and growing so I may not be there yet, but I have dreams. I also have my own list of subversives and anyone who attempts to deny my constitutional rights is on that list.

I am not the “subversive” here, it is the political representatives who are threatening to take away my inalienable rights. If they come to take my guns and I leave a few of them wounded or dead, and I somehow survive, I have zero doubt that I will spend a long time in prison and may face an execution. But I would much rather be a political prisoner than a slave.

If I go down fighting then I was not fighting to harm these human beings. I was simply defending my liberty and yours. It is self-defense and it is what our country was built on. We won our freedom in self-defense. We would not be ruled by a tyrannical government in the 1770′s and we will not be ruled in 2012 by a tyrannical government. There is no difference.

This is a case of right and wrong. As of now the 2nd amendment stands. It has never been repealed. If Feinstein or Barack have a problem with the constitution then they should be removed from office. They are not defending the constitution which they have sworn an oath to protect. It is treasonous to say the least. They would likely say the same about me, but I have the constitution, the founders, and the supreme court on my side. They only have their inflated egos.

I am not writing this to incite people. I am writing this in hopes that somehow I can make a tiny difference. I have no idea how many of my neighbors have the will to defend their constitutional rights. 2%? 20%? I am afraid that 20% is a high number, unfortu nate ly. When push comes to shove many people may give up and submit to being ruled. I believe that our government is banking on this.

I would hope that our officials come to realize that, regardless of our numbers, we still exist because they are calling Patriotic Americans to action. They are making us decide if we want to die free or submit to their rule. I can not tell you where you should stand on that. I do know that it may make the difference between living a life of freedom or slavery.

You must start thinking about this because I believe that the day is coming soon and I personally believe it has already been planned. Not all conspiracy theories are hogwash. They may throw down the gauntlet soon and my suggestion is that you prepare yourself to react.

I mean no disrespect to our elected officials but they need to understand that “We the People” will not be disarmed. If they proceed then it is they that are provoking us and we will act accordingly. We are within our rights to do so.

For those who are in support of taking the guns, you need to ask yourself a very important question, and I am not just talking about the politicians, because if you support them, you have chosen your side.

Are you willing to die to take my guns?


Through regulations, taxation, inflation of the money supply, trade restrictions, and tethers on private associations, government itself is nothing but a massive drain on prosperity. The situation has become deeply dangerous for the future of freedom in America, with young people unable to find jobs, opportunities being destroyed in sector after sector, banks and corporations living on the dole, and so many regulations that we are living under something nearly as egregious as Soviet-style central planning.

“Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the government take care of him — better take a closer look at the American Indian.” Henry Ford

  1. I realize there is a certain old fashioned patriotic charm to this article and it sounds so “just”. However – when the writer says, “Are you willing to die to take my guns?”, I have to ask if he has any clue the nature of the current weapons sitting back to assault the average American right now?

    We have not begun to see what weaponry they have waiting to overtake the US. Electro-magnetic weapons which assault her ears and your nervous system – surveillance weapons, and of course very high powered guns and extremely large, strong sub-humans!

    This is a serious and dangerous time in the US. I believe we are much like a group of animals who have been secretly herded into a fenced area and the gate has been already shut and locked. The perpetrators can see the weapons and they can see we are out gunned but we cannot. They have been planning this scenario for years.

    If a person wishes to die as a result of the gov’t taking guns or whatever they do, this is their choice. Make sure you don’t walk into their trap because they know how to provoke us. If there is a way to evade them, move along, find some peace and get out from under the radar, I would rather live that way then pretend I can out muscle the nwo! They have bigger guns and stronger super soldiers. That much I know.

    1. You may want to give up your freedom Erin but as far as I’m concerned, you are a coward and a traitor to advocate anything but absolute defense of our right to keep and bear arms. The moment you give up your gun, you give up your freedom! As the patriot Patrick Henry said, “Give me liberty or give me death”!………Millard from diggerdan’s

    2. why not die fighting?? After you surrender, they will beat you, rape you, torture you, interrogate you, rape you some more, then kill you. Then after all that is done to satisfaction … Jesus will save you. The religious folk make it so easy for the NWO to Divide and Conquer.

      1. You’re goddamned right. Nothing more accommodating to the Zionists than a f#@king coward waiting for the rapture.

        1. I’m still waiting to talk to Jesus, I got some damned hard questions I want answered!
          In the interim, I just have to keep on fighting.
          Give up my arms? That will be a cold f*^&$%# day in hell!

    3. Oh, the awesome technology that has failed to bring the 3rd world Afghans to heal. Men and guns are meaningless in the 21st century. That’s why we have hundreds of thousands of troops, boots on the ground, in countries around the world which are necessary in every war. The armed American population is the strongest army on Planet Earth and we will vanquish our enemy.
      You go find you a hole to hide in with absolute awareness that when we have taken this country back, you and everybody else like you will be deported to whatever country will have you.
      I’m not going to block you, I’ll just tell you straight out, your green weenie defeatist ass is no longer welcome here. Now slither away and never attempt to return.

    4. Oh the govt. has the newest latest starwars weapons!!…Well lets just go ahead and quit now and wear the yoke…

      F**K that……sir I may/probably will die…but I will do it on my feet facing the Bastards…not begging in the dirt for mercy…….do you really believe what you wrote?

  2. “COP KILLER” bullets are the only bullets that should be made. Check your Geneva conventions, and decades of human experience. DUM DUMs aka hollow points, are both illegal and inhumane. Someone should be filing a complaint with the International Criminal Court over DHS’s purchase of 2+BILLION hollow points. Those are meant for YOU, why are you not concerned? FMJ solid core puts a hole in you, that you may survive. DUM DUMs are designed to shred, tear, maim, cripple. The .223 (a War Crime all in itself) was specificly designed to maim rather than kill because it takes 3+ men to care for the injured vs. 1 to bury the dead, thereby tying up enemy personel. During WWI users of DUM DUMs and serated bayonets were given “special” treatment”, remember All Quiet on the Western Front? DUM DUMs are the choice of Brutes, Thugs, and War Criminals …….. why does the government want to ban FMJ solid core “cop killers”? because hollow points mush against body armor and armored vehicles and Civilians ……… but FMJ solid core will penetrate THEIR armor.

    1. Yes- I know about that ammo. When I turned my entire heart and soul over to Jesus, I transferred my citizenship out of this dying, lying, satanic world and into the kingdom of God. This place is marked for destruction and will perish as we all will. No matter what they do to my flesh I know where my soul is going! I serve Jesus and as such, He has instructed me how to live in His word, by His word. God decides when I die- Jesus defeated death on the cross. I am free. I trust only Jesus in every way. I walk by faith and not by sight. God has a way of moving the bullets out of your way, or moving the storm away from your house or the police or whatever- when you walk with Him. He is the King of Kings. Jesus said he will never leave us or forsake us. This world is toast – its just a matter of time now. You cannot stop it.

      1. Yes…HE also said sell your cloak and buy a sword num-nuts.
        And also a man who will not defend the orphans or the widows…or even his own loved ones was a mere infidel.

        Im a GOD fearing man erin…..and being so I know I must face judgement……and we will be judged accordingly.
        We arer not advocating a war against them…..we are standing our ground against an agressor……..
        If you will not fight,..at least stand with the girls and roll bandages……

        OK…..Henry and all….I will shut up before I get in trouble again

  3. Great article. Everyone needs to give forethought to how they will respond when the time comes. As a Vietnam vet, I’ve made my decision long ago. BTW, the rights spoken of here are not inalienable, they are unalienable. There is a huge difference. Ck it out.

    1. Hi robertsgt40,

      Good luck to you and your family my brother.

      The good fight is almost upon us, and I will mention you in my prayers to the Almightly, that he may favor us in our struggle.

      JD – US Marines – Patriot, Fighter,.. Loyal American

    2. I’ve made that point before. UNalienable rights are God given rights, and no human has the authority to take them from us.

  4. I can see your point of wanting to find a hole to hide in.However it is because of cowards like you that we are in the mess we are in today.Hiding in a hole and hoping the winds of war will blow over you and you will survive to see a new day.Those that hide are the same as the traitors that do not uphold the constitution and will be subject to the same outcome.Good luck with GOD or Jesus moving bullets away from you.Let me know how that works out for you.

  5. My Fellow Patriots:

    Some rather interesting comments posted above, everything from “Jesus will save me” to “Damn the torpedos”.

    Allow me to put forth a few thoughts for consideration:

    When the first physical confrontation happens,… it will only be the begining.

    Even if we took the country back today, without a single shot, the fact is, the laws of economics will assert themselves, and their will be hard times ahead. It tooks decades to destroy our economic base,.. and you can be sure it will take a decade or more to restore it,.. and that would be in a “perfect world”

    Problem: We will not take this country back in a single day, and this is not a perfect world.

    Our necessity, as Patriots and Americans,.. is to stay alive and maintain a posture of Mission-Capable.

    This means NOT getting ourselves killed, injured or wounded to the best of our abilities.

    As Patton said, you don’t win by dying,…you win by killing. Mission Effectivness criteria dictate that you need to be alive and fully capable in order to be fully mission capable at any time.

    This means you need to keep a low profile, retain your stocks & stores, do not do anything to draw attention to yourself, and quietly, seek out others who are of the same mindset.

    We know what is coming,.. it is our job to hold fast, and let them make the first overt moves. Give them every chance to expose their weaknesses, allow them to feel overconfident, let them think they may win this easily,….

    Of course I have not addressed the whole point of the above article,.. “what if they come to YOUR house and demand your guns?”

    Well,.. this depends on what preparations you have made.

    Did you hide them before hand,… are they right there in your safe room or bedroom? Is this happening across the country or your state? Has civility alreadyt broken down. Do you have children who depend on you?, what about a wife? Do you have the advantage at that moment?

    In short,.. there is no right answer for any given individual.

    As I have discussed before here and on Henry’s show, you need to decide your “threshold moment” NOW,.. before that trigger event (or a similiar one) has materialized.

    This “Threshold Event”, MUST be carefully considered, as you are going to make it your “automatic response” event, which will also be your “all-in” event, so let me annotate just a few considerations:

    1) The moment you decide to fight back, you now have a completely different attitude towards life, this government, and the role it now serves (you now understand this gov’t is criminal, and will not put up with it anymore).

    2) The moment you decide to point a firearm,… or ANY weapon at ANY representative of this gov’t, you have gone, “all-in”… & they now view YOU as the criminal! (How dare you to even THINK of fighting back!)

    3) Now that you have openly displayed a notion of self defense, and an unwillingness to accept any further destitutions or abuses, you have placed these gov’t thugs in response mode.

    4) This criminal gov’t will see it as its MANDATE to eliminate any persons or signs of resistance.

    5) Once you have crossed that Threshold-Moment, and point any weapon at any gov’t agent, they will see it as there job to exterminate you (in the most brutal fashion possible), or to arrest you and make a circus out of it. Either act, will be done with the intention to intimidate all others.

    6) They WILL kill you, or try to imprision you for life while taking full advantage of its propaganda value, in addition, they may destroy your home, blowing it up, or burning it, or may simply “sieze” it, as that is one of their ultimate objectives anyway.

    That is a just a few considerations.

    The reality is, once this starts, it will be protracted process, it may drag on for months, even years, so do not be anxious to join the fray to quickly, there will be time for that. Apply critical thinking skills to analysis the situation as best as conditions permit,.. always.

    Am I saying to NOT fight?

    No,.. absolutely not,… just that it should not a knee-jerk type reaction.

    There will be long term consequences to any set events however they unfold, and our goal is to maintain a mission ready capability as long as possible, to retain our home and productive means as best as possible, and to understand this will be a protracted process.

    In the end, it may come to down to instant sh*t fight, with little to no time to think anything over, hence why it is best to know your line of demarcation now, and what is your potential “all-in” scenarios, as we may all be facing that very soon indeed.

    Get ready, talk this over with your loved ones, friends, and neighbors you can trust. We will all be needing each other more than ever very soon.

    Good luck to each and everyone of you Patriots and true Americans.

    Your Fellow Patriot – JD – US Marine Fighting Tyranny

  6. It doesn’t matter what weapons our Government has, or if I know that defending my constitutional rights will surely get me killed…my actions to defend my rights is the point here…I give you a Republic, if you can keep it…The great Benjamin Franklin.
