The 2nd Amendment is not for hunting

With the demonstration in DC, it became very clear that most of “Conservative Media” is perfectly content to remain as opposition media enriching themselves off of the anger of a populace, they have no empathy for. Others were quick to point fingers at Antifa, but this ignores the salient political issue of our time. America is broken and on the verge of a socialist government that has been creeping through every institution for over a century.

As a people, we have accepted a tyrannical amount of taxation that exceeds what the Founding Father’s fought against. We have accepted government overreach in all areas of our lives. We have accepted tyrannical lockdowns and “mitigation strategies.” We have suffered a long train of abuses in 2020. To make matters worse, we saw the government sit idly by when leftwing terrorists burned and looted America’s cities unwilling to defend life and property of its law-abiding citizens. Consider the words of the first two paragraphs of the Declaration of Independence.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

The words of our founders are exceedingly relatable today. In 2020, the American people put up with a long train of abuse, prior to the election which was rife with fraud. History is filled with rebellion, and among the vast wars fought defying higher earthly powers, the pretext of contemporary America easily ranks higher than majority.

But America is not built like Great Britain was. The US Constitution is the highest law in the land. Romans 13, therefore, cannot be used to justify submitting to tyrannical decrees or laws which violate our nation’s highest codified legal authority. The founding fathers had not as easy an argument for revolution against the crown within the confines of Romans 13 which the population believed.

However, many of the conservative pundits have wrongly forgotten the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and its purpose. They will spread memes about how it is not made for hunting, rather for opposing tyrannical government. Yet they snub their noses at those who act on their convictions. If you actually believe in the 2nd Amendment, then there must be a line in which you act on this conviction. You may disagree with those in DC that this election is the line but do define what the line is.

Yet we would rather condemn actions that upset our sensibilities than examine the actions with the perspective of history. All throughout 2020, there were peaceful protests to address lockdowns and election fraud. These grievances fell on deaf ears with the government. In contrast America heard the plight of those in Hong Kong. Yet the people of Hong Kong decided to protest 23 years after the fact. The time for Hong Kong to have risen to protest Chinese rule was before July 1st, 1997, not after. Likewise, we can look at the (failed) Hungarian Revolution 1956 and see a foreboding future of how difficult it will be to fight our way out of communism.

These people are scared, and they have reason to be. As Big Tech and Big Government become more intimate bedfellows, there is only so much longer before it will be too late to save freedom in America.

  1. As a direct decendant of Ethan Allen the trampling of the Constitution makes my blood boil, but for some reason the Lord wants me not to fight it physically at all, but just spiritually. Maybe its the past I left behind before I was saved in which I was quite good at violence. I pray about it a lot. But that doesn’t mean its wrong for others to draw lines in the sand against tyranny and stand at the those lines. Remember, our rights transcend the Constitution. Its quite clear that our government has very little respect for that fact and if people don’t make bigger statements tyranny will invade all aspects of our lives. Its a tough position for the Christian but I dont believe we’re just expected by The Lord to accept any government that comes along. Maybe this is the fruition of the final world government from Revelation and just part of God’s plan? I would say just pray and pray about it.

    • Revelation was fulfilled in 70 AD. It is our task as Christians to build Christ’s Kingdom on earth. Evil has not changed since 70 AD so we can use the lessons from Revelation and other Bible prophecy to fight it. Some will defend the Kingdom with arms others with knees.

            • Correct. Did I say “fully”? No. Christ’s FINAL return is all that is left to happen.

              Rev. 22:20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” (as in the lifetime of those alive then)

              Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

              Revelation and other Bible prophecy was given to those alive at the time those words were spoken or written. New Testament prophecy was given to those alive at the time. They are the ones that would benefit from the warnings in it. Why should we “flee to the mountains”?

              Revelation is written with imagery that those hearing and reading it would understand while offering the writer “plausible deniability”. Read the introduction to “The Princess Bride: Good Parts Edition”. That does a good explanation of why writers use figurative language.

              Should John have used the exact names of those in power at that moment? No, because the rulers could change and saying Nero would be replaced by so and so, would get so and so executed. But using a figurative image for the Roman ruler would allow for a change while the people reading it would understand what was meant. We, modern people, do NOT understand the imagery because we don’t have accurate information about the past and some try to project those images into the future.

              Just how many “horns” should the EU have? And is it Russia or China that has a “million man army”? Is that a prophecy of a SPECIFIC number?

              Not sure how old you are but I grew up in the Hal Lindsey era of prophecy. Would you like a list of all the FAILED connections that have been made in just MY lifetime?

              Postmillenialism more accurately accounts for Bible prophecy than Dispensationalism. Don’t get too side-tracked by the Preterist/Partial-Preterist argument.

              Read some Ken Gentry (postmillenialworldview) and Gary DeMar (American Vision). Start with THEIR works. Then read the critiques.

              The lessons of Bible prophecy and the rest of the Bible are for us to use today to establish Christ’s Kingdom.

              Evil and Satan are still in the world and it is the Christian’s job to fight and defeat both.
