“ That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. ’ — Thomas Jefferson, The Constitution of the United States of America

The General Rules

The general rules are not skills but safety practices associatd with handling any firearm.

ℜULE №: Any firearm is to be consideered loaded until you personaly clear the firearm

That seems like a question that should have a simple answer but these days with so many talking heads saying it is antiquated and should be repealed there is a danger of being confused by these silver tongued It is a danger to a now unarmed populations protected by the police, sheriffs and National Guards. The tell us the Militia is the National Guard. I searched through many nations thesaurus for a word to describe the arguments of these self appointed experts on the thoughts people had over too years ago and found one in an old German edition. It was a simple one to remember and rolls of the tongue smoothly as their talking heads stick. The word is Bullenschei�e and the feminine version Kuhschei�e [sometimes schei�e is spelt schei�ee.] But no matter your opinion on that it expresses the true worth of the talking heads. But the talking heads seem to be the socialist or Communist leaning Utopians attemption to enable the socialist approach to governing which cannot be totally controlled till the citizens are unarmed.

Totally unarmed? Yes! totally, All bows, arrows, ammunition, pistols, revolvers, bolt action rifles of any caliber, don't evern think about your 22LR you had since your eleventh birthday to shoot with your father in the back yard. And what did one of the proponents of the Second Amendment have to say about it.

Tench Coxe wrote under the Pseudonym "A Pennsylvanian" in the Philadelphia Federal Gazette
№:   1: "The power of the sword, say the minority of Pennsylvania, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for THE POWERS OF THE SWORD ARE IN THE HANDS OF THE YEOMANRY OF AMERICA FROM SIXTEEN TO SIXTY. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? are they not ourselves. Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. CONGRESS HAVE NO POWER TO DISARM THE MILITIA. Their (THE PEOPLE) swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American. What clause in the state or federal constitution hath given away that important right.... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the foederal or state governments, but where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people." — Tench Coxe, Feb. 20, 1788.
№:   2: "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, June 18, 1789. №:   3: " The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ,. What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure. " — Thomas Jefferson №:   3: " To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them, and No man has a greater regard for the military gentlemen than I have. I admire their intrepidity, perseverance, and valor. But when once a standing army is established, in any country, the people lose their liberty. When against a regular and disciplined army, yeomanry are the only defense yeomanry, unskillful & unarmed, what chance is there for preserving freedom? Give me leave to recur to the page of history, to warn you of your present danger. Recollect the history of most nations of the world. What havoc, desolation, and destruction, have been perpetrated by standing armies? An instance within the memory of some of this house, will shew us how our militia may be destroyed. Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British parliament was advised by an artful man, [Sir William Keith] who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people. That it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them. But that they should not do it openly; but to weaken them and let them sink gradually, by totally diffusing and neglecting the militia. This was a most iniquitous project. Why should we not provide against the danger of having our militia, our real and natural strength, destroyed? address to the Virginia Ratifying Convention in 1788,. . " — George Mason №:   3: " Three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Beside, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of Nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. " — Patrick Henry №:   3: " "
