    All Federal Gun Laws Are Unconstitutional

    (This is 100% spot-on. This woman hit the nail on the head. THERE IS NO DEBATE. We should never give an inch, and never give up.)

    All Federal Gun Laws Are Unconstitutional

    Freedom Outpost’s Constitutional scholar Publius Huldah recently explained why
    Federal gun laws are unlawful. She noted that the first gun control measures put
    in place in the United States did not take place until 1927, when Congress
    banned the mailing of certain weapons. “We went from 1776 to 1927, 150 years
    after our founding, when Congress decided, “We better start disarming the
    American people.”


    Huldah goes through the history of the Federal government’s unlawful actions to
    regulate firearms in America and she points out that when it started, the
    Progressives had already begun a takeover. I’ll also note the Federal Reserve
    had been established in 1913 as well.

    In 1938 Congress legislated that gun dealers had to obtain a Federal Firearms
    Licenses and maintain names and addresses of those they sold their firearms to.

    She was sarcastic when she asked if we would ask the current President and
    Congress for “crumbs,” begging them to let us keep “some of our firearms.”

    She called the letter from the Utah Sheriffs Association “shameful” because it
    begged Obama not to impose restrictions on firearms by executive order, but
    rather let Congress determine those things.

    However, Huldah said that “We must make a principled resistance. To do that, we
    must learn the applicable principle.” She then pointed her listeners to the
    Constitution to see whether or not the Federal government can impose such
    legislation.

    Huldah then pointed out that there is a little known fact about the
    Constitution:


    “It is one of enumerated powers only. When “We the people” ordained and
    established the Constitution, we created the Federal government. It is our
    creature. We are the creator. It is the creature. It is not our master.”

    “The Constitution is so short,” she continued, because all of the powers
    enumerated to the Federal government are listed in it. “Depending on how you
    count, we delegated only 21 powers to the Federal government.” Article 1,
    Section 8, Clauses 1-16 are those powers.


    Huldah then courageously pointed out that all laws made by Congress, any
    restrictions imposed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, any
    restrictions made by executive order, and all Supreme Court decisions that
    restrict firearms are unconstitutional. They are unconstitutional because there
    is no authority to do so.

    God is the giver of men’s rights, according to the Declaration of Independence,
    and the right to defend one’s self and one’s family is not only a right, but it
    is a duty and responsibility before God, according to the Bible which is a
    demonstration of our love for others. Therefore, she rightly pointed out that
    the Second Amendment is not the source of our right. It merely recognizes that
    the right is to be free from any interference whatsoever to defend ourselves,
    our families and our communities from attack. “This understanding is as old as
    human history,” she says.

    The Framers of the Constitution understood that arms are the only defense
    against a Federal government that would seek to overstep its bounds. James
    Madison, writing in Federalist Paper No. 46, said that the reason the Citizens –
    the Militia – are armed is to defend ourselves, our families, our neighborhoods,
    communities, and States from an overreaching, tyrannical federal government.

    Here are a couple of things indicate that the Framers of the Constitution
    understood this idea:

    1. Militia – armed citizens – Second Amendment

    2. Letters of Marque and reprisal – Article 1, Section 8, Clause 11 – This gives
    authority to Congress to authorize privately owned armed ships to make war on
    the enemies of the United States. An example of such was during the
    administration of Thomas Jefferson, where a ship was commissioned to make war on
    the Barbary pirates via a letter of Marque and reprisal from Congress. Also
    Congress did the same thing against the British.

    In other words, the Framers had no problem with the citizens being as heavily
    armed as the country’s military. “That is because they did not see themselves as
    our rulers,” Huldah adds.

    Article 1, Section 8, Clause 16 gives Congress the authority to demand that able
    bodied males be armed. It reads:

    “To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for
    governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United
    States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers,
    and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed
    by Congress.”

    In 1792, Congress passed “An Act more effectually to provide for the National
    Defense by establishing an Uniform Militia throughout the United States.” This
    Act required all able-bodied male citizens (except for federal officers and
    employees) between the ages of 18 and under 45 to enroll in their State Militia,
    get a gun and ammunition, and train.

    Publius Huldah then reminds us that the leading cause of death in the 20th
    Century was Democide – Death by Government. She ran the list of Soviet run
    Russia, Communist China, Nazi Germany, Cuba, Cambodia, and North Korea. She
    pointed out that Communist, Fascist and Islamic dictatorships murdered their own
    people by the tens of millions. “And do not think that isn’t coming this way,”
    she warned.

    “Universal registration leads to confiscation. Confiscation leads to
    extermination. It always has. Why do you think they are so “Hell bent on
    disarming us?”

    James Madison was clear in Federalist 46 that the citizenry being armed is to
    fight the Federal government’s tyranny.

    “Let’s have no more talk of ‘reasonable restrictions’ and background checks
    imposed by the Federal government,” Huldah declared.

    All Federal government gun and ammunition laws should be nullified, ignored and
    rendered toothless by the people of the States.

    Publius Huldah then reference this essay, “The Coming Day of Burn Barrels and
    Blessings” in which James Wesley Rawles says:

    If congress ever enacts a law mandating the registration and/or a production ban
    of detachable magazine semiautomatic rifles then you are hereby invited to the
    town square of your local community. There, burn barrels will be set up and we
    will publicly burn Form 4473s, FFL Bound Books, state and local registration
    records, and the sales receipts for every firearm in the United States. On that
    same day, FFL holders and public officials holding electronic firearms records
    will simultaneously erase those records, permanently and irretrievably.

    Rawles indicates that the use of masks to hide identities would be proper and to
    cover dealers, they could claim that masked men with guns forced them to do what
    they did. Simply brilliant!

    Huldah then addressed all State and County officers. She called upon them to
    support their oath, which is to support and defend the U.S. Constitution,
    according to Article 6, Clause 3. When as a representative of the people you
    acquiesce to Federal government gun laws of the you are not supporting or
    defending the Constitution, but rather you are conniving with tyrants against
    your own people.

    “And if you connive with tyrants against your own people so that you can keep
    your Federal funding, then shame on you for becoming so corrupt that you allow
    yourself to be bribed with money that your grandchildren will have to pay back,”
    Huldah resounded.

    She also called upon cowardly representatives who have become corrupt to resign
    their office and let manly men take their place.

    While referencing Tennessee issues later in the speech, she did speak to Federal
    funding and declare that officials shouldn’t worry about “arming their posse”
    because manly men will arm themselves!

    My fellow Americans, the line was drawn a long time ago and many in our country
    have allowed the Federal government to creep across that line slowly over the
    years. It is time to say “Enough is enough,” stop them and then push them back
    in place where they belong. Seriously, I almost feel like saying, “I’m Tim Brown
    and I approved this message.” However, we must resist the tyranny coming from
    Washington and the tyranny forming at our State and local levels that would seek
    to restrict our ability to own and carry firearms. Thank you Publius Huldah for
    your stand and may the manly men and the womanly women of this country take that
    same stand.

    I posted a previous article about Publius Huldah. She is a smart well studied lady. I thank you also for your excellent post.

    There are many parallels between what happened in 1775 and what is happening today. The only difference is that the battle comes from the U.S. Some members of our own government want to strip us of our gun rights. It is their ultimate agenda to turn us back into subjects instead of citizens.

    We can never let that happen - no matter what.

    I must say I am in agreement that all of the Federal gun laws are illegal. There is simply no justification to support them.

    The whole world is a powder keg right now. Hard to tell if this country will implode, or get mixed up in another world war first. Either way, trouble is coming.

    When the British marched towards Lexington/Concord in April 1775, they were to arrest John Hancock and Samuel Adams and also to confiscate the people's guns.

    This was "the shot heard 'round the world".

    Will it happen again?

    If they manage to pass any unconstitutional gun laws, who would enforce them?

    Who would be willing to enforce them?

    THAT'S the million dollar question. It's where the rubber meets the road, so to speak.

    Great post. I totally agree. The powers that be are completely out of control. I've often been amazed at how they can spin the words "shall not be infringed".

    All well and good........ The bad news is that is not how it is nor will it ever be....... As shown in the original post Congress has made laws through the years that affect firearm ownership....... The U.S. Supreme Court and Federal Circuit courts have made rulings that affect firearm ownership........ We are in the throws of yet another fight to protect our 2nd amendment rights..... One only knows how it will play out......... But fight we must.........
