If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight?

2nd Amend.

If They Come for Your Guns, Do You Have a Responsibility to Fight?

I feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.

About a month ago I let the “democracy” word slip in a discussion with a fellow blogger. I know better. Americans have been conditioned to use this term. It’s not an accurate term and it never has been a correct term to describe our form of government. The truth is that the United States of America is a constitutional republic. This is similar to a democracy because our representatives are selected by democratic elections, but ultimately our representatives are required to work within the framework of our constitution. In other words, even if 90% of Americans want something that goes against our founding principles, they have no right to call for a violation of constitutional rights.

    I’m afraid we’re all heading to a civil war and with current government it’s going to pit family and friends against each other. Hope it doesn’t lead to it, but it has all the earmarks. People will only push so far

    • Greggie

      It has to be because as we
      Head into darker and darker times, the end times, mother will be against daughter, father against son. It will only fulfill the Lord’s Word.

    • Doc

      Sorry to be the naysayer here but it will not be a “civil war” in any sense. Those who oppose guns won’t have any so we won’t have to shoot them. It will be much more like a revolutionary war wherein we must kill those enemies who oppress us; that they are wearing a U.S. uniform does not make them any less of an enemy. If you come to take my guns, my ammo, or even my couch, then you have gone from soldier to gestapo and therefore evil and my enemy.

      • Greg_EMT

        One think to keep in mind. Regardless of how the press and movies portray them, the US military is not a bunch of mind numbed robots. They are taught to determine if an order is LEGAL before they obey it. Most of the military at the Colonel level and below will stay true to their oaths, to ‘defend the CONSTITUTION against all enemies, foreign and domestic’. The General officers may give orders, but individual military bases are under the command of a Colonel. Also, the US military has become dependent on National Guard for combat support and logistical support. The National Guard’s loyalty is to its state’s Governor first and then the President. I just don’t see the national guard shooting Americans unless they are defending themselves. We are not a banana republic with a professional military that has no regard for the government or the civilian population at large. And I think the military will think long and hard about the lessons learned from the war between the North and the South. The military is big on history. They do not want to repeat the mistakes of the past.

        • Judy Ratliff

          well said.

        • $26222150

          No one’s loyalty is to the president nor any person, but rather, the Constitution, which is every citizen’s duty to protect against all enemies…you know the rest.

  • fliteking

    If it comes down to a scenario that pits the Constitutional Rights of Honest Citizen’s Vs the Progressive (Liberal) agenda . . . we need to strongly consider what those who came before us fought and died for . . . their intent was to permanently maintain our Freedom.

    • colt38

      We should be able to win that one. Liberals do not believe in guns.

      • Doc

        Wrong. Just because they believe YOU shouldn’t (can’t) have guns is no reason to think they won’t have a large number of heavily armed people to protect THEM and to project their power. Sure worked pretty well for that German guy Hitler, Right?

        • Indiana_James

          Very true but Hitler wasn’t German,…he was Austrian. (sort of like our ‘president’ isn’t American,…hes a Kenyan by birth and that didn’t stop the liberals from putting him up for President either)

        • Reb Biker

          Wrong. Liberals are wimps. They’re counting on people who took the “Oath” to protect them. I believe that true patriots that were sincere when they took the Oath will take our side, and the liberals will be neutralized overnight.

      • parlayer

        they are in charge of the military.!!

        • Judy Ratliff

          do not bet your life on that. I would never admit that I was willing to take my own people out. I would lie with the best of them.

          • jstarusa

            I guess we will find out, won’t we? I always thought the military was suppose to protect the citizens, not kill them over stupidity. Just think of all our soldiers that have given their all for this country. This is what you get when you get a bunch of silver spoon fed no commonsense liberals in control and a supposedly opposite conservative? party that cave in on everything.

      • Nadine

        Liberals a MORONS!

        • Reb Biker

          … and sissies!

      • jstarusa

        No, but they will have others to enforce it for them! All the government is interested in now is a power play period! If they can ram this through like Obamacare, the rest is a piece of cake!Too bad others do not see this! This isnt going to go away. If we cant rally the do nothings in congress to come to their senses, thats exactly whats going to be happenning.

      • Bettssss

        They don’t beleive in guns? Then why do the obama’s have so many armed security Guards watching their every move? why do hollywood stars have …….. armed guards? Why do all the Senators have armed guards? Why why why? ONLY THE RICH AND FAMOUS WHO DON’T BELIEVE IN GUNS ARE THE VERY ONES WITH ALL THE GUN PORTECTION? Something wrong with this picture ? I say so.

    • jong

      At that point it is not a choice but, a moral and ethical obligation. It is also called civil war.

      • Millard Huff

        Civil war is coming to AMERICA you can bet on it.When they try to take the first persons guns and they start killing the people that came to take the guns that is when it will start for the real men.Now the men that have guns and don’t want to fight i would call these guys yellow and every liberal and every dead.

        • wminaz

          Just a question of where it will start.

  • Victor


  • GDC97

    It IS a Democratic Republic in that we vote for our Congressmen and President to represent us!!

    YOU NEED to go back to school!!! That IS third grade government!

    • rivahmitch

      Do you believe that the power of elected officials is unlimited? Ours is not a system in which those who “represent us” have unlimited powers. They are supposed to be constrained by the Constitution. What is your point?

    • Doc

      Un? Constitutional Republic.

  • Lester Peoples

    Right will right’ itself–Wrong Never will. Know what is right and make it a code to exist by is a God given right allowing mankind to honor his God standing for the basic laws written in the word..

  • 2War Abn Vet

    It has always been said that people vote with their pocketbooks. They’re voting now, with as much as they can spend, to empty the shelves of every gun store in the country. It should be clear that these folks are not thinking about turning in their guns to please the control-freaks who are making unconstitutional laws. It’s far more likely they’re preparing to defend their rights against a government making war on them.

    • Doc

      Excellent point. Obama is right about one thing; it is different this time. This time we know what he is doing and we are preparing. We vote by supporting Colt, Smith & Wesson, and the hundreds of others who make my Modern Sporting Rifle. And our votes include millions upon millions of rounds of practice ammo.

  • Evermyrtle

    They will send out their individual policemen to our houses, one by one with guns in hand and demand our guns. They will take them by force by any method possible. The little old ladies some as old as 90-95 will be no match for these bullies. We must remember that GOD not Obama is in control. I do not know ho far HE will allow them to go. We just must remain true to HIM whatever HE allows because we know that HE will put a final end to it, rescue HIS people and put an end to the Obama’s of the world. I just wonder if we will be allowed to be able to watch as HE wipes out all evil.

    Isaiah 65:17 For, behold, I create new heavens and anew earth; and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

    Isaiah 66:22 For the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. (I believe referring those who are loyal to HIM)

    II Peter 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to HIS promise, look for a new heaven and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    John speaking in Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth for th first heaven and the first earth were passed away: and there was no more sea.

    • Doc

      Well, while waiting for God to give me a hand I hope He won’t mind my shooting the cop who tries to take my grandmother’s (or your grandmother’s) pistol. By chosing to follow the dictator and to oppress the people he once swore to protect he has become the enemy; and therefore evil. God expects us to fight evil, right?

    • oldguy199

      The best way to catch a bail-jumper is to tell them they WON a prize, Bait them in and it is over. Why come to your house when you will come to theirs. You take a person down when they are vunirable (store, work, church, etc) not at their strong-point. These people have done this before-they do it for a living-they are professionals. Being hauled off your kid’s ballpark on a trumped-up “disturbance” will not upset their next target

  • $5708171

    We, as non-socialist, freedom-loving people have been collectively kidnapped and tied to the proverbial railroad tracks, and the socialists are in the engine up the tracks a ways, heaping coal into the firebox, coming at us as “fast & furious” as they can. The goal is to remove, by any means possible, as many conservative/libertarian people as they can. They smell fear. They are certain they are about to win it all. What is coming is going to get very ugly, very soon.

  • rivahmitch

    Those unwilling to kill and die for their rights and freedoms will lose them, and deservedly so. Semper Fi!

    • oldguy199

      Start a Blog–teach practical on the ground tactics with your experience (booby traps, home-made bombs, poisons, alternative weapons, sabotage techniques, etc) teach how to fight and win WISLEY

  • GB.

    If they come to confiscate my guns, I am assuming that our Country has been overthrown. And i feel that gives me God’s given right to fight back and i and 7 or 8 thousand friends and neighbors are standing in the same trenches.

    • Reb Biker

      “If they come to confiscate my guns, I am assuming that our Country has been overthrown”.

      That is an EXCELLENT way to look at it. Clear and concise. Thanks!

    • mar5t1n

      Got news for you. Our country has already been overthrown. When the prez and attorney general and others in charge refuse to uphold our laws, we then have no laws and that is the very definition of being overthrown!

  • giley

    I would keep a low profile about gun ownership and how many. Keeping one out of data bases when possible is the way to go. Here in CA unfortunately, we have some of the most Draconian gun laws and it looks like the liberal legislature is not done with us. Make sure you have a good secure place for your arms. You can bet that Obama and his camp is not done with us gun owners by a long “shot”. He has plenty of company, i.e. Feinstein, Boxer and others. Let’s not forget the leftist media, i.e. Pierce Morgan.

    • Doc

      And a warning to Vets. Seems the VA is now asking their patients, with veiled threats of withdrawn medical care, about how many guns they own. Do they feel angry? Do they hate the government? Do you need someone to help you get through the day? Once they get their answers they get to say you are a threat; too angry to own a gun. I doubt seriously that any of these (foreign trained) doctors will be the ones coming to your door to take your guns; but they are the ones responsible for someone being there (and getting killed by an angry vet.)

  • James Maxwell

    A civil war is what the socialist democat in Washington DC is hoping and planning for. He is active
    working for that in hope of declaring martial law so he can remain in office beyone his term. But
    what he and other in the government do not realize is that Americans will rise up and attack in mass
    anyone who attempts that. With all the ammo and guns that oscumminist is buying he will be
    supplying those who rise up with the weapons the need to defeat him and his minions of socialism.

  • JACK

    As far as I am concerned the Constitution is still the law of the land and until the people of this nation are ignorant enough to allow those in government to abolish the Constitution I will continue to have the right and the privilege to bare arms. I would at this point think that most people would understand that it is not about gun control, it is about people control. History time and again shows this to be factual and to ignore it is just plain stupid.

    • Doc

      Well said. I don’t believe it is stupidity but more ignorance. Sadly ignorance by choice. It IS much easier to lay on the couch eating the chips you “bought” with your EBT card while calling for some dope on your federally paid-for cell phone. Reading is just SO HARD! Maybe we need a fun reality show; like The Consitution and Prostitution? Reid & Boehner; lovers in hiding?

    • Greg_EMT

      Not just bare arms. The phase is “…KEEP and bare arms..” Also, this right is not created or given to us by the constitution. We had them when we were born. The constitution protects our rights. The rights protected by the constitution were ours before their was a United States and will exist even if the United States are overthrown.

    Be afraid; be very afraid.

    Remember our veterans.
    All gave some; some gave all.
    Rest in peace my brothers.

    “Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.” — Mohandas Ghandi, An Autobiography, Part V, Chapter XXVII, page 446.

    “The art of taxation consists in so plucking the goose as to obtain the largest possible amount of feathers with the smallest possible amount of hissing.” – Jean Baptiste Colbert (1619-1693), French economist and Minister of Finance under King Louis XIV

    “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.” — George Washington

    “The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.” — Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers, p. 184-188

    “The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” — Samuel Adams

    “A government that doesn’t trust its law abiding citizens to keep and bear arms itself is unworthy of trust.” — James Madison

    “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” — Thomas Jefferson

    The well-regulated could be intercepted as Neo-Nazis, etc. since the wear costumes, but from my “cold dead hand…”

  • Doc

    Let us pose the question differently. Drinking and driving is bad, therefore cars are bad. We must ban, then confiscate your car. You have no reasonable right to expect the government should not take your car. After all you can take public transportation to get to work, the store, and your doctor when you have a heart attack. Once all these horrible vehicles are gone we will live in a utopian world where no one will drink and hurt anyone ever again. Right? We got rid of cars so no one would consider driving their ATV, bicycle, or tractor while drunk and trying to get to the liquor store. Right?

  • Cooleemee Edd

    I will not allow anyone to come into my home to search for firearms, knives, clubs, bows and arrows, or anything else. Keep Reloading, America!

  • buffalobob

    I think the writings of the bible is being fullfilled. There will be a lot of people killed before the evil is defeated. The people will see through hardship and death that evil is not the way and will return to the bibles ways.

  • Vic Bailey

    I learned from Chesty Puller, if you want FREEDOM you sometimes have to fight for it, it is NOT like welfare, where it is given to you, you have to grab your own boot straps and get the job done. I will NOT GO SILENTLY INTO THE NIGHT, when I GO IT WILL BE LOUD AND LONG! And I can slow them down long enough for others to get ready! Semper Fi.

  • RugerNiner

    The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

  • Indiana_James

    I for one will FIGHT! (and be killed,…I am no soldier) BUT,….it’s far better to die free than to live as a slave for the communist-sympathizers and their ObumbleFuhrer.

    • mar5t1n

      Sounds like a movie. Live Free or Die Hard. May come to that!

  • Benjamin Fox

    Live Free or Die or in my case Live free in Jesus or Die and be with him forever after I send a few idiots to hell for all eternity.

  • Nadine

    This has been BO’s plan to disarm Americans, but yet the thugs will carry on! Well…I will NOT have our rights infringed upon! we need MORE protests!

  • Janthony132

    According to the US Constitution, it is plain for everyone to read. It is the citizens duty to resist a government that is contrary to the law of the constitution. That would be backed by the Supreme Court.

  • Judy Ratliff

    hell yesd you have an obligation to fight. it is your Constitutional right to fight even if you take government people out. we are obligated by our founding Fathers to do away with tyranny.

  • Frank

    The Constitution is the Law of the Land! Anyone threatening it is a law breaker. Anyone defending it is a Patriot!

  • Eugene Lubben

    Of course you have the right to fight the socialist/liberal/communist who come to grab your guns ,,
