The intent of the Founding Fathers in including the Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights was to ensure that the American citizen had uninhibited access to the armament equivalent to that of the standard infantry soldier. That right is there as a check on potential tyranny.
As you are likely aware, the Founders’ intent has slowly and surely been violated over the last century via incremental anti-First and -Second Amendment legislation. And we all know the forces of civilian disarmament will never stop trying.
Their continual desire to limit human liberty is bottomless and is best countered with facts, determination, mockery, and technological innovation that render their incremental encroachments futile.
Thankfully, more Americans like Cody Wilson have been paying attention and are working tirelessly to counter the statists’ liberty-destroying long game.
While the ability of Americans to create their own firearms at home is nothing new, the ability to do so quickly, easily, and en masse with very little effort or expertise required is just around the corner. And there is nothing the state can effectively do about that.
That’s what makes Wilson and thousands more like him true American patriots.
A few of my favorite Cody Wilson quotes:
“Technology will break gun control. I stand for freedom.”
“People don’t like to register their firearms. They don’t trust government. That’s good because look at history, there is zero reason to trust the state.”
“This is an attempt to apply pressure to de-platform a legal, American business selling legal products to law-abiding customers.”
“The Revolutionary War was fought over soft drinks.”
“I love the example of Jefferson because he’s willing to murder his government and then he becomes a president and then his face is in a mountain. Just because he exercised his power.”
“Your fathers killed their government for far less, why won’t you?”
“It’s sad that as crushed millennials we live in the shadow of our parents, our fathers. We aren’t willing to murder our government. It’s like, come on, why is this scary? Jesus, every generation before you was willing to kick ass.”
I’ll leave you today with the figurative middle finger Wilson raised to hysterical civilian disarmament advocates and their mainstream media boosters who have portrayed Defense Distributed and their files for 3D printed guns as the end of western civilization.
