For the very first time, since the long term gun debate began, a light can be shown illuminating the unequivocal fact as to why there is such a national gun debate in the first place. The Second Amendment is the ultimate stumbling block for the Left. If they can’t rise up and take it from you by force they will teach it out of you. And they have been very busy by my estimation for at least a couple of decades dishing out poison.

There has to be a “star chamber” of sorts, where highly educated elites have crafted erroneous information to be included in textbooks, and then handed over to major school book manufactures to be printed, bound, then spread throughout our public educational system. There can be no other explanation for it.

Just as the Marxists, which many refer to as the Left; including many educators and teachers, not all, as Marxist, participate in teaching various parts of American history, culture, and even science to our students as falsehoods. Our children in public education, including parents of today, sanitized of the facts have been taught false information, including one’s right to bear arms.

2nd amendment wrong in study guide

It has been many years since I ran across this simple picture we see here above that someone had the foresight and guts to take, so that people would actually see how our second Amendment was written in an advanced placement study guide. One can clearly see this study guide was produced in mass quantity to be used all across the United States; very telling of just how many this falsehood was taught to. Time to review the truth and the lie—

Correct Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution—

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. 

False Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution—

Amendment II

The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia.

When we look at both of these definitions it is very easy to spot the difference between the two. The first definition, which is the actual definition of the Second Amendment when compared to the false definition, one can clearly see it gives full authority to the states to have a militia and carry arms, as well as the individual having the same right. As we read the false definition in the study guide we can clearly see the individual right to carry firearms was omitted. So, just how many school textbooks have this erroneous definition?

However, there is further errors in this study guide that is also telling which has also been used erroneously many times by Americans when it comes to practicing religion including stopping religious displays or plaques on public property.

Correct First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution—

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

False First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution—

Amendment I

Congress may make no laws that infringe a citizen’s right to freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly and petition. Congress may not favor one religion over the other (separation of church and state).

Note also, the third Amendment is also wrong in this study guide for the U.S. History portion of the exam.

Many have tried to put limits on all types of gun types or ones that use magazines that hold many rounds of ammunition, to this day you hear the calls for gun control, especially when there is a mass shooting. But what many people today can’t visualize is that the more guns that can be carried in public places the safer we actually are. Criminals will obtain firearms of various types and they have them. To place severe restrictions on firearms or take them away from law abiding citizens is not only foolhardy, it makes us less safe from all sorts of increase in crime; it’s just simple common sense.

So how dangerous have firearms been to the public? According to a Forbes magazine article written during 2013, as gun sales climb gun related crimes went down—

“According to DOJ’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, U.S. gun-related homicides dropped 39 percent over the course of 18 years, from 18,253 during 1993, to 11,101 in 2011. During the same period, non-fatal firearm crimes decreased even more, a whopping 69 percent.

It is clear to myself, at least, as to why the population easily echo calls for gun control by nationally known “gun control advocates” in the media and well known Democrats who are politicians when there is a mass shooting, based soely on teaching the falsehood of the 2nd Amendment in our classrooms. Anyone remember how the EPA wanted to outlaw lead bullets? In my opinion, the only thing keeping our nation from utter chaos and collapse and from total federal government intervention, while severely restricting our personal liberties, is the fact that we have a 2nd Amendment in the first place.

To add fuel to the fire for a mixed up population, this one extract from the Texas Public Policy Foundation report, we can further clarify how our population has been prepped for total federal government control. From this 96 page report an example on Socialism where the reviewer of this section had the following to say—

Holt Rinehart & Winston— Book Title: Holt American Government— Subject: American Government (High School level): 

p. 511 – The section on socialism notes that one of the criticisms of capitalism is that “some people are quite wealthy, while others are very poor.” Socialism, the text continues, “attempts to reduce these inequalities by redistributing wealth throughout society.” The concern here is that it implies a better standard of living in general in socialist societies than in capitalist systems. That is, the argument could be made that the relative standard of living in capitalist systems is better because it produces a large middle – class that is affluent compared to the average system in a socialist system. This possibility should be discussed.

For those who do not understand our U.S. Constitution and where Amendments are part of it, no court, state or the congress can outlaw the U.S. Constitution or the amendments that are part of the United States Constitution and the Left clearly knows this.

The attack on our history, culture and science along with our laws are no doubt unending, even congress and the federal bureaucracy today is leading America in a post-constitutional period. And the Left has decided it is far easier to teach the lies to our school age children in the classrooms all across America rather than taking it to the streets in mass. Rendering a population that would be compliant, even behind the Left’s quest to destroy our free nation ushering in a permanent ruling class of Marxist, Fascist or some other tyrannical variety. If the lies about our laws and history continue to be taught on a mass scale as it no doubt has been for decades, it will lead to a permanent tyrannical state with a seeded willing population. Ending with my thoughts—

“Whoever controls the information controls the world.” 

A final warning from George Orwell that wrote “nineteen-eighty four” and then a subsequent film where the people are subservient to the state’s ultimate will.

Phil Davis served in the USAF from 1973-1993 and most of it was working in Command and Control at Strategic Air Command (SAC) and United States Air Forces Europe USAFE, while his two best assignments was working at HQ 8AF Command Center from 1984-1989 at Barksdale AFB, with a one year assignment serving with the 485 Tactical Missile Wing, Ground Launch Cruise Missiles in Belgium during 1986-1987. Phil has been writing on political issues since 1993, including a run with the Examiner prior to 2013. It was just after that when he started his own blog where he has written on various subjects about a myriad of topics related to our country's political environment and the rediscovery of American Patriotism.
