Talking about the USA Constitution amid the hype of COVID19 pandemic hoax seems to be irrelevant and behind the curve. Except it is not!
The whole USA constitution, like every other so-called constitution, is just a bunch of deception and cheat sheet for statist power with a fake democracy or a republic, except the Second 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.”
I cannot say that I read every constitution of every nation-state in this planet, but I have read quite a bunch of this kind of statist toilet paper, and it seems to me that “the right to keep and bear arms” without “restrictions”- technically “cannot be infringed” only exists in the USA and is recognized and written in black and white also only by the USA Constitution. (Shhhhhhhhhh …Well, the fact is “the right to keep and bear arms” in the USA and those in Mexico and Guatemala, technically can be infringed! And have been infringed severely at the whim of the Government!)
However, for the sake of argument, please let’s just pretend as if the “right to keep and bear arms” in the USA were unique as many dumbshit Amerikans believe! They believe they were exceptional, don’t they!
First important notice is that it is an amendment, which means it was not there originally. The founding members did not want to recognize this most important natural right, if not the mother of all other rights.
I don’t know exactly who insisted to insert this “amendment” into the Constitution, (it could be Thomas Jefferson) but IMHO, this/these persons must have understood very well what true Liberty is, and loved and cherish liberty deeply.
For it is a very simple fact that one can claim as many rights and freedoms as one wishes, but one still has nothing if one has no will to fight for and no means to protect against the violation of and the imminent threat to one own life! And the same is true for a community or a state if you prefer, in this case. One must be alive in an inviolate status to have freedoms and rights! It’s no-brainer at all.
That’s why the Second Amendment (should have been the first. This fact is very telling about this bunch of “founding fathers”) states unequivocally clearly that “”A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state” and within such community (or state) “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Those persons who insisted to include this most important natural right of all rights, must have pondered very hard on every word they chose. Because not only that a community (state) cannot be free without a free people to form a “A well regulated militia“, (not an army), but also the people themselves cannot be free without the right to keep and bear arms in order to defend and protect themselves against any government violation at the first place.
You have no freedom at all if you do not have a mean to protect and defend your freedoms when violated.
Therefor “to the security of a free state” in this USA Constitution’s context means not only to reserve the right to literally fight back any violation from central/federal government but also to compel /order the citizenry to do so. Thus “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” is for fighting against Government’s violation at any level!
I know, I know! Many “historians” and “constitutional experts” have spun this particular right away from its original purpose with arguments such as “representative democracy” and “representative government of the people, by the people, for the people craps!
Ask yourself this question: Why did some founding members after the Constitution had been written in a complete from, demand and insist on adding “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” at the first place? Was it demanded and insisted for going around to shoot rabbit and deer or grizzle at that time? Or some petty thieves and robberies? Or their annoying neighbors? Of course not! The right of the people to keep and bear arms is to defend against the existential threat to liberty from the very government itself!
The ultimate purpose of “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” is to secure a “free state”. Who would threaten a “free state” of the free people? Government and its goons and thugs of course! We all have not just only witnessed but experienced government violation of our liberty, our human dignity, and our very bodily lives all the time!
Therefore “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” was obviously initiated and insisted particular by liberty lovers, and it’s there for those who cherish liberty, who want to be free-people, not the “gun lovers”, the “sport lovers”, and mere hunters as this has been deliberately wrongly spun by Amerikan useful idiots. Of course, there is nothing wrong to be “gun lover.” It’s their freedom, but the point of the second Amendment is not for or about “gun lover” per se at all!
For years, the NRA, instead of making categorically clear that the Second Amendment is for liberty protection and freedoms’ defense and that “the right of the people to keep and bear arms” is not for “gun lovers” or “for sport”, but for liberty lovers and freedom protectors against the Government itself.
The NRA and gun lunatics have been so silly that have been falling into the semantic trap, and stupidly let those statists and so-called liberal progressive to ridicule and demonize gun owners as just “gun lovers” and “hunters” who love shooting animals senselessly!
The NRA should have consistently insisted that “The right of the people to keep and bear arms” is for the most important natural right: Self preservation, self-defense in order to live as free people in a free state.
They should have done that, but they have not and have tried their best not to do it! Why?
Simply because they all know that it’s statist taboo to mention any thing against Government and its agents especially with gun! These days no one dares to encourage or even suggest citizens the right to vocally loudly argue with Government thugs and goons, much less to fight them back with guns!
They all know full well that the right to self-defense and self preservation of citizens naturally entail the right to, as far as gun is concerned, shoot back at Government agents, by who their own life and the life of their family are threatened directly and imminently. Government does not want to give up its monopoly of using violence, and ironically, these people in NRA and most “gun lovers” as statists, who worship Government and the power of the State, don’t want this right (to shoot back at Government agents) to be recognized either!
Well, except a very minority of people such as Larken Rose with When Should You Shoot A Cop
They all know that “the right to keep and bear arms” is meaningless if one does not have the will to exercise them freely, for as a matter of fact, this natural right is the protector of all rights. No one can have any other freedoms at all if one does not have the will and means to defense and protect his/her own life when violated and threatened by whatever and whoever at all.
I don’t love violence, I don’t love force. As a matter of fact, I don’t love guns, swords, knifes, or bows and arrows, But I do need to possess them as means to protect my liberty and enhance my safety! I have practiced martial art (judo and southern Shaolin school) since I was 12.
Why have I brought this issue up to you, especially my American friends? Because (pretending that) only you have the Constitution that spells out explicitly and categorically clearly this most important right: “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” to fight against Government violation of people’s body and liberty. But since this Amendment was added into the Constitution, this right has been deliberately misinterpreted by the so-called High-court and repeatedly infringed by governments and the the elites. and the American people have just willingly swallowed all these false explanations and its infringements.
And now with the state-made hype of bio-engineered COVID19 pandemic, government can lock down the whole nation, Government agents can arrest and force vaccination and quarantine on anyone suspected with infection. Yes they do it just because of a not so “novel disease” that has killed far less than any other diseases! Not because they can, but because people allow them!
I can imagine that if people themselves, not government, established their right to literally shoot back at Government agents, by who their lives are directly threatened, their freedoms are violated, there will be no longer the need for protest or demonstration or violent revolution at all! The root cause of the problems is already eliminated!
The bottom line is: Every right is meaningless without the will and the right to fight for and defend your own life against the violation and threat from Government! No nation state, no constitution ever allows such fundamental natural right to be exercised … until when the people themselves have enough and decide to exercise such fundamental right to make a revolution!
The right to abolish government and killing its thugs and goons always exists right within the will of liberty and the love for freedoms.
“…That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it…” I don’t know who wrote such “treasonous” idea, but that’s exactly what “the right to keep and bear arms” is for!
Think about this folks! As always the last word is yours!
Only 3 countries in the world protect the right to bear arms in their constitutions: the US, Mexico, and Guatemala
- Only three countries in the world currently have a constitutional right to own a gun: the US, Mexico, and Guatemala.
- Six other countries used to have a constitutional right to bear arms, but they’ve since repealed those laws.
- The US is the only country with a right to keep and bear arms with no constitutional restrictions.

The right to keep and bear arms is a longstanding, often glorified right protected by the US Constitution.
Many countries are awash with guns. Among the nations with the most firearms are Serbia, Yemen, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia.
But there are only three countries that have a constitutional right to keep and bear arms: Mexico, Guatemala, and the United States. Here’s why.
Only 15 constitutions (in nine countries) “ever included an explicit right to bear arms,” according to The New York Times.
The United States’ Second Amendment inspired other countries around the world to provide their citizens with the right to own guns — including Bolivia, Costa Rica, Colombia, Honduras, Nicaragua, Liberia, Guatemala, Mexico, and the US.
All of those countries, excluding Mexico, the US, and Guatemala, have since rescinded the constitutional right to bear arms, The New York Times reported.
Just south of the US border, the Mexican government has a strict hold over civilian gun ownership. Although Mexicans have a right to buy a gun, bureaucratic hurdles, long delays, and narrow restrictions make it extremely difficult to do so.
Article 10 of the 1857 Mexican Constitution guaranteed that “every man has the right to keep and to carry arms for his security and legitimate defense.” But 60 years later in 1917, lawmakers amended it following Mexico’s bloody revolution.
During the rewriting of the constitution, the government placed more severe restrictions on the right to buy guns. The law precluded citizens from buying firearms “reserved for use by the military” and forbid them from carrying “arms within inhabited places without complying with police regulations.”
Today, Mexicans still have a right to buy guns, but they must contend with a vague federal law that determines “the cases, conditions, requirements, and places in which the carrying of arms will be authorized.”
In 2012, The New York Times reported that only members of the police or military can buy the largest weapons in Mexico, such as semiautomatic rifles.
“Handgun permits for home protection allow only for the purchase of calibers no greater than .38,” the Times wrote. One man who wanted to buy a pistol had to pay $803.05 for a Smith & Wesson revolver.
Perhaps the biggest hurdle of all is that there is only one shop in the entire country where Mexicans can go to buy guns, and it’s located on a heavily guarded army base in Mexico City. While the store sells 38 guns a day on average, it’s estimated 580 guns are smuggled into the country from the US every day.
Like Mexico, Guatemala permits gun ownership, but with severe restrictions. The right to bear arms is recognized and regulated by article 38 of the current constitution, which was established in 1985.
“The right to own weapons for personal use, not prohibited by the law, in the place of in habitation, is recognized,” the document says. “There will not be an obligation to hand them over, except in cases ordered by a competent judge.”
Although Guatemalans are not allowed to own fully automatic weapons, they are allowed to buy semi-automatic weapons, handguns, rifles, and shotguns if they obtain a permit. Still, that can be difficult.
For example, individuals who want to purchase a gun for private security purposes need approval from the government. They are also limited in how much ammunition they can own, and they must re-apply and re-qualify for their firearm licenses every one to three years, according to GunPolicy.org.
A license also requires proof that the applicant has a clean police record, does not suffer from mental illness, and has not deserted the army or police.
Despite the restrictions, guns are widely available in Guatemala. In fact, it has one of the highest gun ownership rates per capita in Latin America, according to Insight Crime. The same organization also noted that 75% of homicides in Guatemala involve a gun. In 2016, the capital city of Guatemala was ranked the 9th most homicidal in the world.
Although Mexico and Guatemala both have a constitutional right to bear arms, the US is in a league of its own, because it is the only country without any restrictions on gun ownership in its constitution.
The second amendment states: “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.”
For nearly 200 years, since the words were adopted in 1791, the second amendment was thought to be referring to privileges belonging to the military, according to the The New Yorker. But from the 1970s, the view gradually changed until it solidified in a 2008 Supreme Court decision, which found the second amendment did intend to give individuals the right to bear arms.
