Today I was pondering Jefferson, reading some of his earlier pieces and I asked, “What would Jefferson say?”. Have you ever considered it? Read the declaration of Independence, no I mean really READ it. Explore the contexts. Here is what I believe Jefferson would somewhat pen, however much better I am sure, if he were alive today in regards to firearms and the debate surrounding them.

A Declaration of Position
on the
Peoples Right to Bear Arms
Unmolested by the State
At a time where it has become evident that the fundamental, inalienable right to self defense, and self preservation, accomplished by the bearing of arms regardless of design or function, is increasingly infringed upon, willfully disregarding the existence of this right endowed by the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, it is the right of the people, their duty to object to these usurpations.

The American People have long suffered under the despotic ignorance, the trampling disrespect of the 2nd Amendment of the United States Bill of Rights by statist acts and unjust violations of the very marrow of a right that exists whether penned by men or not. The right of the people to keep and bear arms, is not endowed nor removable by any governing body.

Fully understanding the technological advancements capable, as witnessed in their time, having defeated the powerful, tyrannical British Empire, the acknowledgement of the perpetually existing right to take up and bear modern arms was penned as the 2nd Amendment within the Bill of Rights, by those who founded this Nation.

The People have patiently endured the long train of abuses and usurpations of this natural right. We now peacefully declare objection to the past, present and future infringements and usurpations of this natural law, this God given right by setting forth here an immovable position held by those signed.

We will not recognize nor concede to any ordinance, statute, act, bill, rule, or law further molesting and harassing those exercising the fundamental and inalienable right of firearms ownership. Furthermore we shall grant no respect or honor any law discriminating against firearms by make, model, function, operation, mechanism or design nor acknowledge the legislative criminalization of those possessing firearms deemed illegal by government.

Being that the very natural, inalienable right to bear modern firearms exists outside of the dominion of government, and where it is not governments to bestow nor to remove, prohibit, disallow or suppress this natural liberty, we the People hereby state that we shall never allow the confiscation, nor willfully surrender or turn over firearms regardless of such demand put forth by any legislative body or government.

This is our position; any violent incursion or aggressive, force exercised by government bent on molesting the people, persecuting or tormenting citizens in possession of firearms will be regarded as an assault against the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God, as well as insult against the very fundamental Liberties of which this nation was founded.
