An Essay on the Second Amendment: Part Three- Rights Remain as Times Change

The Classy Libertarian

How often do audiences hear that “the Second Amendment was only meant for muskets” from journalists and gun control advocates?

It seems it would make sense if the audience ignores two factors: the Founding Fathers had seen that technology continually change, and that advanced weaponry besides muskets had already been invented.

The first idea is pretty easy to debunk. Technology in general had made life easier, from communication (via word of mouth to writing with quill and ink to the Gutenberg printing press), to transportation (via walking, domesticating horses, to horse drawn buggies), to housing (huts made of mud and rock to log cabins to buildings made of brick and mortar).

When discussing warfare, mankind has made extraordinary changes. Wooden clubs became spears and swords, slings and stones became bows and arrows, crossbows and bolts, and eventually firearms. From here, the second notion (that no advanced technology beyond muskets…

    The US Constitution for all its wart’s and good aspects, has only lasted long as it had because of the property ownership clause called the 2nd Amendment.
    The 2nd Amendment stipulates the primal ownership rights to personal property are inviolate. And the use of that property is at the sole discretion of the people. No. One. Else. Nothing. Else.
    Our arms, swords pistols rifles shotguns, etc are our property. That is the first thing.
    It matters not even a hoot what anyone or anything says about it, even those who own weapons. That is how inviolate this clause is.
    That it has nothing to do with ink on a piece of parchment, and everything to do with a battle incessant from the time of the birth of the human race. Indeed, the moment the clause was immortalized for all to see by all who before had struggled and paid for its inherent idea of self defense with any & all weapons, is the moment tyrants and tyranny was put on notice they and it would not stand.
    Period.
    The eventual outcome goes like this, it is inevitable: The exact opposite motive power will be created in logarithmic scale in appropriate portion against the hoplophobe’s as they extend & squander what little political power in overreach as they attempt to “outlaw” private property and “people” who own that specific personal property, which purpose of said property is to protect and defend both the same property & people to begin with.
    It is not our rifles they want to take.
    It is us as free and self determining men they hope to outlaw, otherwise known as Genocide.
    Our rifles are only as dangerous a deterrent & bulwark against tyrants as the Men of The West who are brave enough to not be denied their God given primal birth right to Arms.

    Once the 2nd Amendment was established as a clause of right to arms and property, there was no stuffing this inalienable concept of sovereign natural rights back in its bottle.
    Nothing else within that parchment means anything without the 2nd Amendment.
    Everything, all the Amendments, good or bad notwithstanding, all the precepts and actualization, would not exist here right now today if not for that one simple clause about property shall not be infringed.
