What Will America Look Like if The Second Amendment is Gutted?

The man who proposed that the colonies declare independence, Richard Henry Lee, once said:

“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms.” 

Then why are there so many laws and regulations preventing people from carrying arms? As James Madison said as he was describing why it is so advantageous that the people are armed: 

“Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” 

In short, governments, especially tyrannical ones, are naturally afraid of an armed populace. In this battle of wills between the people who wish to be armed and governments who want to disarm them, who will win? Maybe a better question would be, what would America look like if the anti-gunners win the battle? The answer comes from Noah Webster: 

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.

A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”

Whether you exercise your right to keep and bear arms, or choose not to, the most predictive evidence of whether We the People will rule or a standing army will is simple. Are the people disarmed?

Paul Engel

Author and speaker Paul Engel has spent more than 20 years studying and teaching about both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution. That experience helps Paul explain difficult concepts in a way most people can understand. As one manager described, “Paul can take the most complex idea and explain it in a way my grandmother can understand.” Freely admitting that he “learned more about our Constitution from School House Rock (a Saturday morning cartoon) than in 12 years of school,” he says that anyone can be a constitutional scholar. Since 2014 I have been helping everyday Americans read and study the Constitution of their country and teaching the rising generation to be free. Using news and current events as a springboard, I explain the Constitution and encourage others to stand up and secure the blessings of liberty for themselves, their children, and the nation.
