Gun Rights & The United States of America

Violence is the pillar on which all societies are built and it's repression is tantamount to soceital collapse.

The Constitution does not grant rights. It guarantees them.

“No Free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson, Proposal Virginia Constitution, 1 T. Jefferson Papers, 334

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
_– Alexander Hamilton,The Federalist Papers at 184-188

“That the said Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms … “
– Samuel Adams, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, at 86-87 (Pierce & Hale, eds., Boston, 1850) — — —

“America works best when citizens have authority of violence in their own hands. Not hunting weapons, military weapons.

Japan is opposite. But we have single people and single culture. Impossible for America to have similar situation to Japan, so I think very very smart that states have more local authority than central government, and power of violence is left at lowest building block of society. Makes very good sense.

Where Japan has been the same before is our inter-prefecture and regional wars. Everybody know this is not “civil war” but violence sometimes is the best way to show whether a regional system is really more powerful than another: how much power can the bring to the edge of a combat? Nobody think “we separate from Japan” or whatever. Only regional contests. America can do this effect almost but only with voting, which is a good innovation.

Central government can take weapons of Americans, though, then you lose all power of this innovation and wind up like Europe: cannot ever have bloodless revolution through voting, and rulers will push to terrible situation ignoring reality until enter cycle of holocausts and really huger wars (just look at Europe now: entering holocaust cycle again because of same stupid thing!).

I hope Americans can keep the American system. No system of control works well for wild American people. They always do best when left uncontrolled.”
