The people who call the President of the United States and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States a fascist...
...are the same people who think we shouldn't be allowed to own assault rifles and high-capacity magazines to defend ourselves from a fascist government. I'm still trying to reconcile these two statements. This page will be updated as soon as that reconciliation is complete.
What if the President of the United States decided to implement Fascism or tyranny? How will we defend against it if we are disarmed? Freedom and the right to self-defense against the government are inseparable.
Disarming American Citizens is rooted in racism!
In 1890, the US government forcibly disarmed Native Americans at Wounded Knee and massacred 300 innocent men, women, and children - the greatest mass shooting in American history. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wounded_Knee_Massacre
On April 19th, 1993, the US government descended on a small family community in Waco, Texas. The government brought in tanks, snipers, helicopters, federal agents, active-duty Army special operations units. They proceeded to murder 76 innocent American men, women, and children. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waco_siege
From 1942 - 1946, the US government interned over 100,000 Japanese-Americans in prison camps. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internment_of_Japanese_Americans
Our very own state of California forcibly disarmed Black Americans when they stood up to defend their own communities against racist police brutality by passing the Mulford Act in 1967. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mulford_Act
All dictatorships begin by disarming the citizens
No one thinks that mass shootings are a good thing, including me. I don't know what the solution to this problem should be. When I look at the facts about gun-related crimes in America, I have to compare that against how many people have been murdered by tyrants who disarmed their citizens. Tyrants have murdered tens of millions of people. When I compare that against the inherent risk of letting citizens keep and bear arms of equal power to the government, it's hard to argue against it.
The Ottoman government, after disarming them, slaughtered 1.5 million Armenians. We know this historical event as the Armenian Genocide.
Hitler's Nazi party "used gun registration records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews." Shortly thereafter, he and his party mercilessly slaughtered 6 million Jews in the Holocaust.
Mao Zedong banned the ownership of privately owned firearms and required all others to be registered before murdering 45 million Chinese men, women and children during the rise of the Communist regime in today's China.
Under Pol Pot, the communist Cambodian Khmer Rogue confiscated all privately-owned guns and then proceeded to murder 3 million people.
Ali supports the definition of the 2nd Amendment, as intended by our Founding Fathers. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Many media pundits and so-called "academics" have been attempting to rewrite history with regard to the 2nd Amendment. The Founders were very clear about their intent - the individual right to keep and bear arms shall be construed so as to allow citizens to maintain force parity with the government. The People are the final check against government tyranny.
America was founded by an act of rebellion, and it is the rebel spirit which keeps us free from tyranny. If our Founders were disarmed and had no Force Parity with the government of England, the country known as the United Sates would never have come into existence. The United States would have instead been known as a colony of Great Britain.
The Founders had battleships, cannons, artillery, and rifles of equal power to the occupying British Army.
I believe that American Citizens have a God-given right to self-defense, not only against criminals, but also against the government's monopoly of force. Citizens have the right to keep and bear all weapons and implements of war that are possessed by the State.
Without the right to self-defense against the State, we are not citizens - we are subjects. We are no longer a nation ruled by the consent of the governed, but by the force of the will of the State. Subjects have no recourse against an unfair/unruly state if they do not have force parity with the government.
