Guns and our United States Constitution

Guns and our United States Constitution

Criminal Bankers, Guns, and Silver

By Nick Hodge | Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Publisher’s Note: I wrote this article early last year, before the official launch of theOutsider Club. As such, time and date references are now dated, but the core message remains as relevant as ever. Enjoy. —Nick


“I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies…”  — Thomas Jefferson to John Adams

Last Saturday, I did two things: 1. I bought an AR-15; 2. I bought physical silver.

As an analyst, commentator, and concerned citizen, I feel it’s important you understand why. Plus, you read this letter to get moneymaking insights and opinions that cover the broad scope of the entire market…

What could be a better insight than telling you exactly where and why my skin is in the game?

Let’s begin with a reading of the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution:

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.

Now a definition of infringe:

And now the first three gun control measures being proposed by President Obama, as printed by the Wall Street Journal:

  • Requiring background checks for all gun buyers [needs congressional approval]
  • Ban certain semiautomatic rifles [needs congressional approval]
  • Require a 10-round limit on ammunition magazines [needs congressional approval]Now, I’ve taken a few logic, ethics, and rhetoric courses in my day… and the pathos here is in the toilet.

    Any move to require something, to ban something, or to limit something is, by definition,infringing.

    The Constitution is being violated — and it sets a very scary precedent. Your supposedly inherent rights are being dismantled before your very eyes.

    Even more alarming, a good chunk of the zombified populace seems to condone it. In a survey of 1,500 adults last week, Pew found that 58% favor a ban on semi-automatic weapons.

    I’ll let Benjamin Franklin tell you what’s wrong with this:

    “They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. ” — Benjamin Franklin, 1759

    I refuse to give up essential liberty. I fully believe a right not exercised is a right lost. And I’m not alone…

    As I filled out the background check paperwork (a check is an infringement, by definition) so I could legally bear my new arm, many others were doing the same.

    The scene was the same at each of the dozens of booths selling them at a Maryland gun show. Thousands were crowded up and down the aisles. These weren’t gun nuts. These weren’t tinfoil hat people. These were men and women of all ages expressing a right they fear losing.

    The 50-something man in pleated khakis and Oxford shirt pressing on the carbon copies beside me said the assault weapon he was buying was his first firearm. He didn’t even know that much about them: “I just want to express my opposition to the government’s response,” he said. “I’m tired of them punishing the innocent for the crimes of the guilty.”

    And speaking of crimes, check out a visual representation of the FBI’s most recent murder statistics, and tell me how any rational mind could come to the conclusion that rifles should be banned before hammers…Don’t be bullied by emotional irrationality. Know your rights, embrace them, exercise them.
