the second amendment to the constitution

 America's Founding

The right of Americans to keep and to bear arms does not have its basis in the Second Amendment. As articulated in the Declaration of Independence, it is a God given right.


2nd Amendment:
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.


The Declaration of Independence
Section relevant to article:
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.

Since the 2nd Amendment is God given right and one of many that are necessary for all God given rights to be won or secured. It's foundation as a principle will be found in the Bible, in The Laws of Nature and Natures God and historical experience.

Starting with the Bible.  Ancient Israel's republic was set up by God via Moses and Joshua. This was before they voted God out and voted a king in. It did not have a central government. They had a well regulated militia under civilian rule; no standing army. All households were armed, the men trained and could be called up for war. There was no central or local depositories for weaponry. The people kept and bore their own arms. They had a system of voluntary worship and support for a priest hood that was designed to keep the nation moral enough to create and maintain the personal responsibilities necessary for self rule. A militia was a necessary component for their free state. Not only from foreign threats but domestic ones.  In and as principle this is the exact model the founders of the USA set up using representative government with refinements based in other Biblical principle that met our current needs and circumstances. In a word. Limited government. Government limited to the tasks human government was best suited for.

One of the first recorded cases of "gun" control.


 If one is familiar with scripture they know that when generations of Israelites fell into sin, became ignorant and immoral,  they could not maintained their republic. One of the consequences of this was subjugation to foreign enemies. The prophet Samuel's generation decided they had had enough of self rule and freedom and opted for a king. At that time they were subjugated by the Philistines.  Although certainly not the first time despotic government severely regulated arms, it may be the first record of it. 1st Samuel 13:19 Now there was no blacksmith found throughout all the land of Israel: for the Philistines said, Lest the Hebrews make for themselves swords or spears: 20 But all the Israelites went down to the Philistines to sharpen their farming tools......22 So it came to pass in the day of battle, that there was neither sword nor spear found in the hand of any of the people that were with Saul and Jonathan: but Saul and Jonathan his son had one each. So here we see not only the mass confiscation of arms from the people but also the removal of the means to produce them. Saul the new king and Jonathan his son got theirs from the black market. Everyone else went to war with farming tools and sharpened sticks against trained and armored soldiers.

 This has played out this way throughout history. Oppressors have disarmed the population because it is in the oppressor's interest to do so. The first battle of America's revolutionary war occurred when the British sent an army to confiscate the stores of powder and bullets some Americans had been stockpiling. I want however to focus on the history of Christians in particular since they were the creators of the free world we now enjoy; and that creation did not come about without the use of the force of arms.

The Bible and the end times.


There is great confusion in Christian world regarding Bible prophecy that was yet to be fulfilled at the time the Apostles who wrote the New Testament walked the earth. There are two great bodies of end time prophecy that were yet to come to pass. One body of end time prophecy addressed the end of The Old Covenant Age which occurred in 70 AD with the destruction of Jerusalem. The other body of end time prophecy addressed the age of four gentile empires, named and dated beginning to end in those prophecies. The last of the four did not end until 1453 AD when what had been the capitol of the Roman Empire since 333 A.D., Constantinople, was conquered and the last Roman emperor killed. The end of that age of the four gentile empires marked the beginning of an age of promise that has a much larger body of Bible prophecy dedicated to it than both bodies of end time prophecy put together. Putting all this on a dated timeline. The Old Covenant Age started with Moses approx. 1400 B.C. and ended in 70 A.D. The New Covenant Age started with Jesus and continues on as long as the earth continues. The Age of the Gentiles started when Nebuchadnezzar conquered Jerusalem in 597 B.C. and ended in 1453 A.D, with the fall of the Roman Empire. The Age of Promise started in 1453 A.D and continues on for as long as the earth continues. Notice these ages overlap.

Strategic instructions are given to believers in the Bible's prophecy and teaching on how to further the interests of heaven during these ages or time periods. The instructions during the Age of the Gentiles from the beginning of the NT were pretty clear because what had already been prophesied about the Roman Empire. These verses are speaking of the time period starting with the 11th of ten specific Roman emperors in Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;..... 25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.(1260 days of years.)  Armed insurrection or revolution against this oppression would be met with destruction according to Johns vision of the four empires. Revelation 13:10 If anyone is destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is the perseverance and the faith of the saints. The faithful were to survive the best they could while spreading the Gospel. It was understood they would be persecuted, murdered and martyred. As it turned out genocide would often be used as a tool to stop the spread of the Gospel from one area to another. Like removing a cancer.  

So that is the reason for the confusion.  The Christian world has lost a scriptural vision for the future because so many are applying the end time prophecies about The Old Covenant Age and The Age of the Four Gentile Empires to this age.  This is not meant to imply that suffering, martyrdom or the cross of Christ has been done away with in this age. It is only meant to imply that the interests of heaven are best served in different ways which depend on the circumstances Christians find themselves in. Although there are more than are recorded in it;  Foxes Book of Martyrs  is a good record of ancient persecutions. There are lots of links to copies of this book on the internet if that website disappears.

The beginning of The Age of Promise.


During that whole 1400 year period, from the time of Christ to the end of The Age of the Gentiles; it was not that all real Christians everywhere were unarmed. It's not that freedom fighters did not arise to try to win their nations or peoples freedom from oppression. It's not that it was not God's will that peoples and nations be allowed to bear the fruit of real Christianity which includes the rule of law based in Biblical principle and the overthrow of despotic human government. It's what the general public was not armed with that prevented God's plan from succeeding.  Nope, it was not guns but Bibles. For most of those 1400 years the general public did not have access to Bibles. Throughout much of that time it was illegal. One had to have special political connections to posses one. Locations that for various reasons did not restrict access and the Bible began to be known and distributed were the areas that were targeted for genocide if necessary to rid the kingdoms or empires of the cancer. There were many "protestant" reformations before the Martin Luther's, yet those reformations were militarily crushed. By the way Martin Luther was already a priest and monk but had never read the New Testament. He may have never even planed on it as part of his duties. It was not until after reading and taking it to heart that his trouble started. That is just to give you an idea of the "Christian world" back then. It was generally a world without Bibles and that was by Satan's design. Stranger than fiction right at the time The Age of the Gentiles ended in 1453 AD. The first commercial European printing press went online. The first book printed? Bibles. Within a few decades books and pamphlets went from the tens of thousands of hand written or wood plate carved and printed to the tens of millions. One of Martin Luther's pamphlets had three million printed in a three year period. Even though it was illegal, punishable by death at this juncture. For the first time in human history Bibles got into the hands of the general public. This happened in northern Europe. Not only that but Bibles translated into native languages.

In exactly the same manner as done on previous occasions. Southern European empires and kingdoms committed large armies to destroy the people who were now armed with he Word of God in Northern Europe. Yet the world was about to experience another first in human history. Outside Ancient Israel that is. At the cost of tens of millions of lives. They did not succeed in conquering the peoples of Northern Europe armed with Gods Word. The thinking that developed in Northern Europe due to the general population reading Bibles was the foundation of the free world. It gave birth to he Dutch Republic that was founded in Biblical or Christian principle.  It was he worlds only Republic at the time. It lasted 200 years, became a world power. Even though the Republic needed a professional army to protect itself from the monarchies surrounding it that were always seeking to conquer it.  Regular Bible reading, personal firearm ownership and militia service was  a mandatory rule for citizenship in the republics various cities and districts. What now began to develop in the world was that the peoples, nations, whoever they were; that were the most influenced by the Bible and its principles began to be dominate.

The discovery of the Americas shortly after the end of The age of the Gentiles was also a huge factor in this. Northern Europeans migrated to North America in mass and were able to put into practice their religious principles from the Bible without the same opposition faced in Europe. The colonies became laboratories for the development of differing idea's people have regarding Christianity but all had two things in common. Daily Bible reading by an armed population. 

Having said all of this. Please compare what historians call the Christian world of The Age of the Gentiles where the populations had no access to Bibles. A world that was in fact opposed to the general public ever having access to them and fought horrific and genocidal wars of conquest against peoples who were gaining a little access to them. To the Christian world that arose after this where the general population possessed Bibles, were expected to read them themselves and all public and private education included daily Bible study. It is wisdom to recognize the difference between the two worlds. Especially in the light of the fact that that it was the Bible reading Christian world that gave us the free world that never existed before in history. A world so many of us enjoy. If it is wisdom to recognize this then it is revelation to understand that this free world is the fulfillment of prophecy about an age where all the earthly  promises of God in the Bible will come to pass in nations that meet the conditions. These chapters upon chapters of earthly  promises had remained unfulfilled in the lives of hundreds of generations of saints since the beginning of time.  Yet, and contrarily to most popular Bible teaching about the government of God.  These promises did not come by miraculous imposition via a physical\visible Kingdom but rather mankind had to win them by sacrifice. First and foremost by way cultural change due to many converting to Christ, and their and the Bibles influence. Secondly,  politically or through force of arms.

Jesus and guns.


There are other pertinent historical comparisons of the non Bible possessing Christian world and the Bible possessing Christian world that came afterward regarding wars of conquest.  Islamic empires had conquered 2\3rds of the non Bible reading Christian world. North Africa, the Middle East all the way over to India. They conquered the Roman Empire with the taking of Constantinople. There was a centuries long back and forth with their efforts to conquer Europe. The point I am trying to make is this: At the very least the Islamic world was on equal footing spiritually, economically and militarily with the non Bible reading Christian world. With the advent of the Bible reading world in northern Europe and North America though the expansion of the Islamic world was stopped. Then within a century of the great revival's and spiritual awakenings North America and Northern Europe experienced the Islamic world was completely subdued by those nations that were being influenced by God's invisible kingdom. What was left of it existed at the grace of the western powers who divided it up as they saw fit. A millennial long war of conquest by Muslim empires was ended in one century, and it wasn't even a big challenge to the free world.  Here are a few references to this phenomena in the Bible and it's prophecy.

 Isaiah 54:14 In righteousness shall you be established: you shall be far from oppression; for you shall not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near you. 15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whoever shall gather together against you shall fall for your sake.....17 No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against you in judgment you shall condemn.

Isaiah 60:26 And they shall bring the glory and honor of the nations into it 12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish; yes, those nations shall be utterly wasted.

Zechariah 13:8 In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

Psalm: 149:7 To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; 8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; 9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honors have all his saints. Praise ye the LORD.

Daniel 7:27. And the kingdom and empire, and the greatness of the dominion under the whole heaven, will be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all empires shall serve and obey him.

Revelation 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. 9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

In last verses from Revelation which is also prophesied in Ezekiel. Gog and Magog illustrate the nations and peoples who seek to conquer the lands being influenced by God's people and the Word of God in this age of promise. Fire and fire from heaven is an illustration literally used hundreds of times in OT prophecy to describe massive defeat and destruction in war.  Since the end of the Roman Empire in 1453 AD this is generally what we have seen occur. The nations who have accepted the influence of Bible reading Christians and Biblical principle have been in almost constant assault by nations and empires\dictatorships who don't have that influence yet or who have rejected it. And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city Yet in the end, or generally,  those nations have been defeated in war.  It's a pretty long list. The Holy Roman Empire and the southern European kingdoms that first attacked Bible reading northern Europe.  The Muslim empires and kingdoms. Napoleon and  the British Empire before it became transformed by spiritual revivals. The Kaisers Germany, the NAZIs and the Communists under the USSR. Imperial Japan. A marked difference from the world that existed beforehand. The use of the force of arms come with Jesus' blessing as Biblical principle as you can see in Psalm 149:7 above,  and as the other's imply. If one wants to look a little deeper at all of this it is very discernable that there is a war behind all these wars. A war to stop the growing Christian influence in the world. Or as the Bible would put it. A war to stop the growth of the invisible kingdom of God which is a government that seeks mankind's voluntary cooperation to do what is right and beneficial to all of Gods creation. 

Look at how this war behind the wars has raged in the United States for the last century as a political war. The Bible was part and parcel of America's private and public education for 300 years. All of a sudden in the 1960's as part of an near second American civil war.  Leftist federal judge's, (illegally,) ruled that Bibles, which had been the foundation of America's public education were now illegal to use in schools. Polls at the time indicated that 86% of the American public wanted the continued use of the Bible and prayer in the nations schools.  A confused Christianity where most hold false beliefs that  it is the end times have not yet figured out how to influence the public to politically overcome this coercion by those who are using the government to impose their will on the nation. Most have just settled on that's the way things are. Notice though how the same group of people. those who politically lean left, who now pretty much run the Democratic party are as adamantly against the 2nd amendment as they are Bibles in schools.  They are seeking two things. A general public that is ignorant of what is in the scripture. That was all the public schools and universities  were good for on this issue. Insuring that the general public was at least familiar with the contents of the Bible. The school systems were certainly never designed to create Christians. The other thing they seek? A public that is disarmed. At least to the point that they pose no threat to a political coup by leftists who then use the military to mop up any resistance.  In other words a disarmed public as the second amendment never had any thing to do with recreational firearm use or hunting. It's intent was always an armed population ready to defend their own lives and country both spiritually and military against anything or anyone who would seek to overthrow government of, by and for the people.

In regards to all this a new set of circumstances has arisen in the world. For the last decade over 100,000 people a day coming to Christ. A billion people in all in the last 50 years. This massive world wide harvest shows no signs yet of slowing down.  It has swept over lands where not only cultural non Bible reading Christians existed as well as lands that had no Christians.  Historically, once a people had gotten Bibles and had the Gospel preached to them in power. It took a century to see a real transformation of their cultures as a whole. A transformation that has always eventually included an armed populace.  This wave of revival having only began 50 years ago has not had the time to transform these cultures and in many of them the populations have long been disarmed. With all of this, the persecutions the slaughters are to be expected. When real Bible based Christianity invades a land it has many enemies in high places. Jesus had a parable about this.  What is educational and rather maddening about this is the response to the persecutions by the  global elites who lean to the left politically and those who may not hold their ideology but who fear them.  What I have witnessed for the last 35 years as a Christian are two things. Number one an attitude in mass media and government to ignore persecution and genocides of Christians a long a humanly possible. If it becomes public then to do nothing about it. The other thing is even more diabolical. If for some reason those Christians get armed and get the upper hand. Then to rush in as a global community to deny them their victory. Here are some examples as I remember them.

In southern Sudan in the 80's and 90's there was a genocide of mostly cultural Christians at the hands of Muslim north Sudan.  When I use the term cultural Christians I specifically mean those who are born Christians the same  way a Muslim is born a Muslim or Hindu is born a Hindu. It is a cultural heritage that has nothing to do with an individual getting right with God and becoming a real Christian based on the Bible narrative.  You'll see most of these types of Christians reject the idea that the Bible is the Word of God. Because of the heritage though there is usually some Biblical principle that the culture had long ago accepted that makes them a danger to tyranny. Approx.  4 million mostly unarmed Sudanese were slaughtered and the world passionately ignored it. Government leaders put their hands over their ears to not hear the complaints by Christians and their media about it. This in and of itself was a horrible crime against humanity. In the mean time in little Uganda to the south of Sudan a great revival had been sweeping over the land for decades. They now consider themselves an absolute Christian nation. Khartoum the capitol of Sudan had been funding and arming a mass murdering idol worshiping witchcraft dominated group called the Lords Resistance Army in Northern Uganda. I presume not only to further the Islamic conquest of Africa but in this case to also keep Uganda busy and unable to interfere with what was happening in southern Sudan. There came a point in Uganda's frustration with not being able to defeat or even slow down Joseph Cony that they turned to God about it and based on a vision of someone I personally know and went full blown spiritual in the fight. The nations political leaders allied themselves with the nations pastors. Proclaimed fasting and prayers. The military then flew the pastors to all the known "high places" in northern Uganda that Cony visited and desecrated the idols and  places where sacrifices including human sacrifice was taking place. They also went to the elders of the tribes in northern Uganda whom Cony was killing and urged them to repent of their past support of Idi Amin and the genocide he committed against the non Muslim tribes of southern Uganda in the 70's. They repented in mass. After a decade of fighting in vain victory came very swiftly and the LRA was chased into southern Sudan. While there the Ugandan army decided to shoot up a couple of the Muslim militia's who had been committing all the mass murder. This backdrop is the point I wanted to get to.

The worlds elite and mass media had an overnight awakening to what an observer like me seemed to be a crises in their minds that threatened to overturn the entire international order of the nations. My perception of it was that they simply could not under any circumstances allow Uganda to demonstrate to the rest of the world what an army under the influence of the Bible and real Christians was capable of. The United States has been a super power for so long that anything it accomplishes is simply looked upon as the result of its super power status. Only some of the soldiers on the ground recognize God's hand at work with them. To allow a little nation full of Bible thumping Christians to experience and showcase to everyone else what God can do through them militarily could not be allowed. In other words, this crises was real. Uganda was overturning the order of the international left so desires.   What had been an ignored genocide for a decade became an overnight sensation and the UN was immediately called in to take over southern Sudan.  A few years later when Khartoum sent its militias to attack an oil rich region populated by non Muslim tribes that were animists. It became a cause celeb to condemn it and send aid via the worlds elite and Hollywood left. Apparently,  to the elites of the world, there is a difference in the value of human life based on those lives being Christian or not.  

Another similar thing happened in the Rwanda genocide. Although this is looked at a tribal warfare by the world it is hard to ignore the war behind the wars in this case. The perpetrators were a coalition of witchdoctor dominated Muslim and Marxist Hutus. The victims Tutsis, unarmed, mostly cultural Christian with real Christians sprinkled among them. I say unarmed because what is instructional about this is once more the elites of the worlds reaction to the genocide.  As it was happening the western powers could not ignore it because of the birth of conservative media. They wrung their hands and opined about how horrible it was but did absolutely nothing.  Well, except for godless France who helped the perpetrators. Estimates of the massacred vary widely between 500,000 to 3 million. What stopped it was Christian dominated military force led by Tutsis from Uganda invaded Rwanda to stop the genocide. After a hundred days of genocide where the worlds government's influenced  by international leftist prepared for nothing and did nothing. Once they saw a small military force led by people that claimed to be Christians making gains. All hand wringing and indecision stopped.  Within days they were able to spring into action and send a UN led military force. Not to stop the genocide but to stop the armed Christians from a quick and decisive victory. Their claim was they wanted to stop "reprisals." What! Reprisals or genocide; what's the difference?  People are being killed. Why not stop the genocide in the first place? To discerning people I think the answer is clear. Once more an armed force under the influence of real Christianity could not be allowed to gain the experience of God's provision in warfare or be allowed to be showcased or  a testimony to other oppressed Christians around the world.  The international left with its agenda to rule the world simply cannot afford that modern Christians re-awaken to the reality of those verses of scripture above and the many others like them. Luckily for Rwanda, France and the UN failed. This group of Tutsis gained power and now like President Musenevi of Uganda who's wife is a very dedicated Pentecostal Christian. Rwanda's Christian influenced government enjoys unparalleled electoral support in their country, even from the Hutus.

Of course there are many sad tales of unarmed Christians subjected to mass murder all over the world. In Indonesia in the 90's. 10-20 thousand Bible reading Pentecostals were slaughtered by Muslim militia's on some of their islands. The world never acknowledge this purge and had they been armed and fought back you can bet the world would have gotten involved. The Hmong of southeast Asia are more than 50% Christian. This is a native born Christianity,  not a western missionary led Christianity. As such they were natural allies of the USA in the Vietnam war.  Now they are left forsaken, betrayed, disarmed and persecuted by all the Southeast Asian countries they dwell in. The promise to South Vietnam and by extension to the Hmong from America was arms and if necessary troops if the communists ever invaded again. They were betrayed by leftists in Americas government on both fronts who provided neither. Or a more modern example is the Iraqi Christians after 911. President Bush who claims evangelical Christianity was persuaded by leftists in the state department to not allow our soldiers to distribute Bibles to Iraqi citizens who desperately wanted them.  He must not have recognized the war behind the wars when he allowed them to persuade him of this. All under the guise of not provoking the radicals.  As if Bibles would have made the radicals hate the west any more than they did already. When President Obama, a doctrinaire leftist assumed the presidency. Against everyone in the world's advice including his own party leaders he withdrew the USA's  garrisons out of Iraq. ISIS arose and its first targets were Iraqi towns that mostly housed Iraq's cultural  Christians.  Not a finger was lifted to save them even though we had a military ready and willing to do so. It almost seemed like the  attitude about slaughter that occurred that was publicized in all the worlds media was almost: "Christians deserve what ever happens to them." Then ISIS turned its guns on the Yazidis, a Muslim sect who lived right next door to the Christians. Military and humanitarian aid was sent within days. For the rest of president Obama's terms conservatives argued that we should arm Iraqi Christians so they could defend themselves. This suggestion was treated as an abomination by the leftist elite who were in charge of the world under that presidents term of office. Arm Christians? Are you kidding me? Why not? We arm everyone else in the world. Why not Christians? There a lots of other examples that could be added to this as it has been going on a long time. I certainly don't mean to ignore the plight of so many others around the world.

In looking at this war behind almost all modern wars. The spiritual backdrop behind the conflicts. Is it any wonder that those who oppose the publics acceptance of the Bible, its teaching and principle; also and as adamantly oppose an armed population? Is it any surprise the international left (or as they call it progressive movement)  are creating very close political and personal ties to Islamist who have been engaged in this war behind the wars for a millennia? This history, past and present day  is why the second amendment should be a non negotiable item to anyone properly influenced by Christian principle. The next sections will address arguments a little more on the secular side, then some easily assessable data from the internet.

Just who has done all the killing?


A question that has to asked in the debate between those who want an armed population verses those who do not is this: Who is responsible for all the killing the world has suffered? The answer is indisputable. Human government. We are not talking just a majority of the killing but the vast majority. Like 90%.  No one is arguing here about the need for human government. The need is obvious. Nor is anyone arguing the immoral should be armed. All nations that have some sort of foundation in Biblical principle recognize God given rights to own firearms are forfeited because of criminal behavior.  A desire for only the government to be armed is probably exhibited A in the demonstration of the irrationality of a self centered and godless humanity.  To fear of ones neighbors being armed in such a way to be an actual threat to the power hungry, covetous human beings drawn to government rather than fearing the extreme dangers of unlimited government is not based in knowledge but ignorance.  In other words it is not based on the history of the human experience. It is nonsensical as far as personal and community safety is concerned to fear the population being armed verses government possessing all the arms. Someone might answer: " Yeah but have you seen my neighbors?" That is perfectly understandable. However instead of throwing the dice and hoping that a dictator is never elected,  ( Have you seen some of those politicians?) Why not use your free time in making those immoral neighbors of yours who cannot be trusted with guns, moral, law abiding, good citizens worthy of bearing arms? Don't know how and not willing to come to Jesus? Well at the very least you could be supportive of those who do know how and are doing just that. It is in your personal interests. It's irrational to not support your neighbors being moral enough to own and bear arms. If they are not moral enough for that then what makes them moral enough to participate in a democratic process? Either way your screwed. People vote for dictators and wanna be dictators all the time. There is only one cure for that and it's the same cure that makes a person responsible enough to own and bear arms.  For God's sake at least do not support a political party that purposely promotes all kinds of immortally, including sexual immortally, because immoral people are easier to manipulate. 

 So we are faced with this dilemma. In spite of all of human history. Those who want to grow the size and scope of human government the most are also those who want a disarmed public. It simply to difficult to explain outside the spiritual  realties of the war behind the wars.

Having been involved in discussion boards and other social media since it was invented. I have had hundreds of discussions and debates with all sorts of people from all sorts of walks of life. Many, and purposely so on my part with militant leftists and atheists. Not to speak of hundreds of Democratic party voters whom they influence. In the debate about what kind of governments do the most killing. A constant refrain from them is governments that are influenced by Christianity.  Sadly, being publically "educated." They have no idea of the differences between the Christian world that did not have Bibles verses the Christian world they get to enjoy the fruits of  were you can find a Bible in 90% of all households. Without any knowledge or discernment, completely devoid of the spirit of truth they just mix the two worlds together to justify their political positions and personal animosities.  The bias born of ignorance gets so absurd that they do not even know that the communist of the 20th century who were responsible for 150 million deaths were officially atheist. By officially I mean their state imposed "religion" was atheism.  Nor do they realize the National Socialist German Workers' Party, the "NAZIs" were extremist evolutionists along the lines of the title of Charles Darwin's book: "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle for Life" If you add the number of people killed by these two forms of socialism you get around 220 million in one century. By far  the most egregious examples of death by human government in one century of history of the world.  Who is at the top of the list by numbers? Islamic conquests. No one knows for sure but the numbers are somewhere between 500 million through a billion.  Included in this are estimates of 500 million Hindu's and 120 million Africans.

The reason just a little basic information like this is necessary is due to the fact that those who lean towards socialism are also those most adamantly opposed to an armed population.  Against a population armed with Bibles and firearms. Further, that close political ties with Islam are being formed by those who lean towards the political left without any care at all of what could result of it. Whether people are inadvertently being manipulated into taking sides with the two ideologies that are behind the governments who have murdered the most people or are doing it on purpose is inconsequential to the fact that they are.  What it demonstrates is the extreme danger our world is always in and the need for a knowledgeable, moral and armed population.  A population using extreme diligence in keeping human government limited to the things by nature is best fitted for. 

Don't more guns mean more murder and death?


This is a common belief that is often used as a statement of fact by those who want the public disarmed. The numbers don't add up that though. Since webpages with data often change. I'll list search phrases that list sites with he relevant data on top. That way you can search yourself. What will become pretty obvious in this is that it is not an armed public that leads to murder and death but an immoral public that that leads to murder and death.

As one can see there is not that much correlation between the amount of guns in the publics hands and the murder rate.  Wikipedia lists charts of all the countries with this data.  The data above is 2014-2015.  There is no nation on earth as far as the amount of firearms and ammunition than the United States. As it should be for that matter.  The USA ranks 83 out of 192 countries in murder rates. Interestingly. If you remove a half dozen cities, cities that have been completely run by the Democratic party for decades.  A party that has completely rejected the Biblical principle the nation was founded upon. Cities by the way that have stricter gun laws than the rest of the country. The USA drops down near he bottom of the list in murder rates by country.  Serbia is an odd ball of a nation. It's the wild west of Europe as far a firearm possession. The government has no control of the possession and sale of firearms. Because of the wars in the 1990's there are millions of fully automatic military weapons in circulation including grenade launchers, RPG's and other such novelties. Yet the murder rate is amazingly low. The regulation of firearms in Austria is just a little bit stricter than the USA.  Permits and registration on handguns, none on long guns. Yet the murder rate is near the bottom of the list of nations. There are many nations like Mexico and Brazil that have pretty severe resections on firearm ownership that have enormous murder rates. One might ascertain an inability to legally protect oneself might have something to do with this. Japan has almost no firearm ownership is included to show that suicide rates do not increase simply because of easy access to firearms. Crime, violence, murder, suicide are matters of the heart and culture, not a matter of public ownership of firearms. Not only does the informed citizen of the free world need to fight the simplistic ignorant idea that says the less firearms in the hands of the public the less murder violence and crime. The free citizen, if they want their children to be free need to fight those who seek to impose immortally on the land because Bible based morality just does not suit them.
