Contrary to the myth perpetuated by the left and anti-gunners, there isn’t widespread support for gun control in America. In fact, a majority of Americans, including non-gun owners, support the individual’s right to keep and bear arms.
Americans take their Second Amendment seriously, and any attempts at a gun ban or widespread confiscation will be met with stiff resistance and likely bloodshed.
Some people believe that a second American Revolution is “inevitable“, while others have pointed out that our original Revolution was fought to stop people like the ones who are in charge now.
One of those who is promising resistance to further gun control is Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who has warned anti-gunners to “keep your hands off our guns” because he believes armed Americans are what keep us free. The Sheriff joined Alex Jones from Infowars to discuss the repercussions of potential gun confiscation, and warned of a Second American Revolution if the anti-gunners try it.

“First of all, to me that would be an act of tyranny,” he said of the gun control measures currently under consideration. “So the people in Milwaukee County do not have to worry about me enforcing some sort of order that goes out and collects everybody’s handgun, or rifles, or any kind of firearm and makes them turn them in.”
“The reason is I don’t want to get shot, because I believe that if somebody tried to enforce something of that magnitude, you would see the second coming of an American revolution, the likes of which would make the first revolution pale by comparison,” he added.
Sheriff Clarke gained national recognition for a public service announcement he ran encouraging Milwaukee citizens to defend themselves from criminals.
“I’m Sheriff David Clarke and I want to talk to you about something personal: your safety. It’s no longer a spectator sport; I need you in the game. But are you ready? With officers laid off and furloughed, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. You can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide under the bed, or you can fight back. But are you prepared? Consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we get there. You have a duty to protect yourself and your family,” he said in the ad.
Clarke says that gun control measures aren’t really about safety, but more about control of law-abiding citizens.
“This is about attacking the Second Amendment, it’s about going after the wrong crowd,” he said. According to the sheriff, much of the violence he sees is not committed by criminals using the guns lawmakers want to ban.
“Government control cannot go on as long as people have some sort of ability to say ‘hey wait just a doggone minute,’” he added. “That’s what the government fears, they don’t really fear the criminals, they support the criminals. What they fear is a law abiding person.”
The Sheriff is right, more gun control measures will do nothing to help people be safe, as criminals don’t obey the laws that are already in place. Criminals intent on causing harm will find a way to do so, and it is imperative that people have the means to defend themselves.
But the Second Amendment isn’t even really about self-defense against criminals, at least not the way most people think of criminals. The original intent of the Second Amendment was to provide citizens a means to protect themselves and their property from the criminals in the government, to defend themselves against tyranny.
A ban on guns and gun confiscation will not be accepted in America, and people will definitely fight to protect their rights and their property. If President Obama continues to pursue his anti-gun agenda, he could very well spark a second American Revolution.
