In it, he explains what many government supremacists will never understand. And that it is that they can go ahead and attempt to repeal the 2nd Amendment, because as much as they try to lie about it, that is, in fact, what they want. But, although it would most certainly affect the life of the Free Man on a day-to-day basis, it does not, in fact, affect what my rights are in the slightest.
Government does not administer rights. The only proper role of government is to protected pre-existing rights.
Here is what Herschel says:
I have weapons because God gives me the right to own weapons, not the second amendment. The opinions of the people are as subject to the vicissitudes of ideology as the times in which they live, and the mind of man cannot be entrusted with the rights of mankind. If Mr. King is placing his trust in the people, he is building his house on sand.
My rights are what they are by divine pronouncement. It is righteous to own guns because it reflects the character of the Almighty. Without this I’m no different than the statist thugs and collectivists who want to disarm me, except we happen to be on different sides of an issue. It means everything … everything … to be right and righteous.
“It is righteous to own guns because it reflects the character of the Almighty.” That ought to put a wad in some people’s panties. As it should.
[Trying to get out of the habit of putting stuff like this on Facebook and instead putting it here and letting the WP plugin put it on Facebook. Maybe my posting will be regular if I commit to that. No promises, yet, but I’m going to try to pay attention to this blog more.]
