Firearms rights activists are now ‘insurrectionists’ say anti-gunners

Quote:

Timing is everything, and a new book from Joshua Horwitz and Casey Anderson ties in well with recent “reports” from the Department of Homeland Security on “rightwing extremists” and the one from the Missouri Information Analysis Center on the “modern militia movement.”
Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Anderson, a Washington, D.C. attorney, call their book Guns, Democracy and the Insurrectionist Idea. So, in addition to being demonized as “rightwing extremists” and militia whackos, now gun rights activists – people who stand in defense of their fundamental civil right to keep and bear arms that is protected by the Second Amendment – are “insurrectionists.”
Saul Cornell, a professor at Ohio State University and one of the nation’s leading gun control proponents, says this book “is an important first step in demonstrating how reasonable gun control is essential to the survival of democracy and ordered liberty.”
These guys simply cannot get over the fact that one year ago this Friday, the Supreme Court of the United States let the air out of a myth they had championed for years, and affirmed that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms that goes well beyond service in some militia.

When gun enthusiasts talk about Constitutional liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment, they are referring to freedom in a general sense, but they also have something more specific in mind---freedom from government oppression.

Amazon.com offers this description of the book, which reads like it was provided by the authors: “And when gun enthusiasts talk about Constitutional liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment, they are referring to freedom in a general sense, but they also have something more specific in mind---freedom from government oppression. They argue that the only way to keep federal authority in check is to arm individual citizens who can, if necessary, defend themselves from an aggressive government.”
That certainly appears to be an accurate assessment of the individuals who issued the following statement: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”*
The people who signed that statement founded what could easily be called the American Insurrectionist Movement. Almost certainly, their names belong on the Terrorist Watch List because there is certainly evidence some of these people have already committed acts of “domestic terrorism.”

They argue that the only way to keep federal authority in check is to arm individual citizens who can, if necessary, defend themselves from an aggressive government.

I did some checking. Here are the names of every one of these insurrectionists, and where the authorities can find them:
New Hampshire: Josiah Bartlett, William Whipple, Matthew Thornton
Massachusetts: John Hancock, Samual Adams, John Adams, Robert Treat Paine, Elbridge Gerry
Rhode Island: Stephen Hopkins, William Ellery
Connecticut: Roger Sherman, Samuel Huntington, William Williams, Oliver Wolcott
New York: William Floyd, Philip Livingston, Francis Lewis, Lewis Morris
New Jersey: Richard Stockton, John Witherspoon, Francis Hopkinson, John Hart, Abraham Clark
Pennsylvania: Robert Morris, Benjamin Rush, Benjamin Franklin, John Morton, George Clymer, James Smith, George Taylor, James Wilson, George Ross
Delaware: Caesar Rodney, George Read, Thomas McKean
Maryland: Samuel Chase, William Paca, Thomas Stone, Charles Carroll of Carrollton
Virginia: George Wythe, Richard Henry Lee, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Harrison, Thomas Nelson, Jr., Francis Lightfoot Lee, Carter Braxton
North Carolina: William Hooper, Joseph Hewes, John Penn
South Carolina: Edward Rutledge, Thomas Heyward, Jr., Thomas Lynch, Jr., Arthur Middleton
Georgia: Button Gwinnett, Lyman Hall, George Walton

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

* The document from whence this passage comes is the Declaration of Independence, signed 233 years ago by the gentlemen whose names appear above. They won’t be hard to find because they haven’t moved much in the past two centuries. They are all "at home."
Note to Horwitz, Anderson and Cornell: Damn right these men were insurrectionists, and they were good at it. You should thank all the gods in the heavens that they were good at it; they gave you a nation. The mere suggestion that today’s gun rights activists share the same treasonous ideals as the men named above is a brand we’ll wear with honor.
Saul, if “ordered liberty” is what you seek, perhaps you should catch the next flight to Tehran. The Iranian government has been enforcing “ordered liberty” for the past several days.
