A Timeless Lesson For Every Country In The World
by Ron Adamik, a simple patriot
The American Founding Fathers were geniuses with their Forever Wisdom for All Eternity. They knew the cold hearts of tyrants never grow old. Founder George Mason eloquently told us with all-knowing wisdom:
“To disarm the people is the best and most effective way to enslave them.” He then answered a pressing question: “Who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.” (Second Amendment Primer, Les Adams, 1996, Pages 101-102)
The Russian-Ukraine family conflict is a solid contemporary lesson regarding the Second Amendment, really a universal amendment for precious liberty.
The Ukrainian President, Volodymyr Zelensky, in an emergency measure signed into law under the ominous threat of invading Russian military hordes, gave the Ukrainian people defacto “Second Amendment” rights. Then he ordered that reserve stocks of five million mostly older AKM (AK-47M) 7.62 X39 MM true military select fire assault rifles (full and semi-auto), be passed out to the civilian population, quickly formed into a large nationwide militia.
You can tell them apart most often from regular troops by the laminated stocks on their AKM assault rifles (the regular troops most often have later model AK and other assault rifles with black synthetic stocks.) Quickly trained in the use of these AKM assault rifles and other assorted weapons to include large stocks of handguns and squad automatic machineguns, this huge militia has been integrated into the Ukrainian Armed Forces and have played an important role in the defense of their country.
Bottom line: A large civilian militia with reasonably modern true select fire assault rifles, machineguns, submachineguns, handguns, body armor, portable anti-tank weapons (Javelins, etc.), portable anti-aircraft weapons (Stingers, etc.), and a strong, unbreakable will to fight, can wreak havoc with the most modern of conventional armies backed up by a modern air force.
A timeless lesson for every country in the world. A civilian based militia, with the support of the people at large – is a force to be reckoned with, a force for liberty.
From a historical perspective, the American Founding Fathers were the greatest consortium for liberty in perpetuity.
Hopefully, other countries to include our precious United States, will learn from the Russian-Ukrainian conflagration, and train large contingents of their citizens with surplus and even new infantry weaponry, contemporary portable anti-tank and anti-aircraft systems, for the purpose of keeping their constituencies Forever Free. A citizen army able to deal with threats from within and without, as the Great American Founding Fathers anticipated and provided for with the utterly timeless Second Amendment.
Let’s see, in the United States a force of say twenty-million well-trained citizens armed as described above would not be unreasonable, and would serve as a bar to tyranny. A warning to other countries, and the military-industrial complex President and General Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us about.
A lesson for traditionally anti-Second Amendment Democrats in the United States (and to be fair, all too many Republicans), who knowingly and falsely argue that the Second Amendment is “obsolete”, a “relic” of colonial times. Yes folks, they have been proven horribly wrong. But they still deny it; what does that tell you? What is in their blackguard hearts I ask? I think we know.
