    May the Federal Government Lawfully Make ANY Restrictions on Our Guns & Ammo?


    By Publius Huldah.

    NO!

    When you look at it from the perspective of limiting the federal government to its “enumerated powers”, it all becomes very easy and clear. We haven’t been looking at it this way because we are so ignorant of our Constitution that we don’t know that it delegates “enumerated powers” only to the federal government.

    The Truth is, that when WE THE PEOPLE “created” the federal government, we itemized (“enumerated”) in the Constitution all the powers WE delegated to it.

    We nowhere delegated to any branch of the federal government power to restrict, infringe, etc., guns, ammo, etc.

    So any federal laws or BATF rules for the Country at large which purport to restrict, infringe, etc., guns or ammo, are unconstitutional as outside the scope of the powers delegated to the federal government in Our Constitution.

    THIS is what we need to get people to understand. Their misplaced focus on the 2nd Amendment as being the “source” of our right to keep & bear arms, has been a disaster:

    Art. III, Sec. 2, cl. 1, enumerates the powers of the federal courts – it lists the types of cases they may hear. One category of case they may hear is “all cases or controversies arising under this Constitution”. The 2nd Amendment is part of the Constitution. That is how they claimed judicial power to decide the scope and extent of our “rights” under the 2nd Amendment; and hence, what federal restrictions on our “2nd Amendment rights” are “reasonable”.

    Do you NOW see why you must point to The Declaration of Independence (2nd para) and assert that your right to keep and bear arms – to self-defense – comes from GOD and is Unalienable?

    PEOPLE! Wake up! The federal government has only “enumerated powers”. NOWHERE in the Constitution did we delegate to the federal government authority to impose ANY restrictions on guns, ammo, etc. They violate Our Constitution when they impose these restrictions.

    And YES, private American citizens can have armed ships! Remember the Privateers who fought the British ships in the War of 1812? Remember Letters of Marque & Reprisal (Art.I, Sec. 8, cl. 11)? Our Framers contemplated an American People who were so heavily armed that they could be Privateers, as well as wreak vengeance on our enemies via letters of Marque & Reprisal.

    So be a patriot and buy a tank … or an armed ship!



    Originally, Congress had no problem with the Right of Citizens to own Warships. During some of our early conflicts, Congress would contract (Letters of Marque) with the owners to assist our Navy and raid enemy ships.

    Second Amendment, God Given Rights:
    Don't know for sure if this is what the Framers referenced but:

    From Isaia Chapter 45:5 6

    "I am the Lord and there is no other, there is no God besides me.

    It is I who arm you, though you know me not, so that toward the rising and the setting of the sun men may know that there is none besides me."


    Isaia 54 13-17

    "All your sons shall be taught by the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.

    In Justice shall you be established, far from the fear of oppression, where destruction cannot come near you.

    Should there be any attack, it shall not be of my making; whoever attacks you shall fall before you.


    Lo, I have created the craftsman who blows on the burning coals and forges weapons as his work; it is I also who have created the destroyer to work havoc.

    No weapon fashioned against you shall prevail; every tongue you shall prove false that launches an accusation against you.

    This is the lot of the servants of the Lord, their vindication from me, says the Lord."

    And who is the Lord?

    Isaia 45: 3

    "I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who calls you by your name."

    Not so much "we the people". More like them other people.
