Ladd has been beating on the gun-owners-as-insurrectionists drum for quite sometime desperately trying to see if any mud sticks to the Second Amendment Wall. Today being President’s Day, he had to go selecting quotes here and there to make his case:
And then, there will be some black men who can remember that, with silent tongue, and clenched teeth, and steady eye, and well-poised bayonnet, they have helped mankind on to this great consummation; while, I fear, there will be some white ones, unable to forget that, with malignant heart, and deceitful speech, they strove to hinder it.
Maybe we can refer to Lincoln’s first inaugural speech:
This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing Government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.
He goes on to say that he rather much have a peaceful solution via amendments if they came from the will of the People as any of us will like, but some will always do their best to try to impose their views on the majority. Lincoln eventually had to go to war against the Confederacy to preserve the Union. We didn’t need to go to arms to neutralize the Anti Gun Lobby as much as they say we are a threat. We just pointed out to the truth about crimes, the lies of the opposition and our respect for the Constitution.
Ladd might call us insurrectionists but I think the term Peace Makers applies better. Oh hell yes, serious pun intended.
