Not Just Entertainment, But Self-Preservation

taegan memeI would like to introduce Taegan, our newest Liberty First intern. She describes herself as:

~Iowa Native. Hillsdale College Student. Aspiring Attorney. Jesus Follower and Kingdom Worker. Avid Reader. Frequent Shopper. Developing Cigar Connoisseur. Pursuer of Truth and Defender of Liberty. The Future of America.~
Taegan has decided to write a blog every day describing the Liberty First life. So, in lieu of our regular #Point2Ponder I will be posting Taegan’s #LifeLibertyLaw blog.
I joked the other day that Taegan is like my Doctor Watson. I find these blogs very entertaining and inspirational.  I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures as much as we love living them. ~ In Liberty, KrisAnne

The only argument I’ve ever heard against the second amendment pertains to the phrase “a well-regulated militia,” and I never knew how to defend our right to bear arms against that contention, until now. KrisAnne walks everyone through the meaning of that clause in the Disarming of America class (photos from that class are featured here). She shows, through primary sources, the meanings of “militia” and well-regulated” from the men actually who created the Constitution. George Mason tells us that the militia is the WHOLE body of the people, with the exception of the regular troops and public officers. That means that every single person, withstanding those public officers, IS the militia, and has the rights to keep and bear arms. The phrase “well-regulated” simply means the whole body is taught how to bears arms at a young age in order to exercise that right in the same way every time, without deviation or error. That is the proper and accurate meaning of “a well-regulated militia”; not a selected group under the control and regulation of the government. The whole body of the people should be able to outnumber the government in arms in order to repel a standing army and defend themselves.

Pursuing truth and defending liberty, always.
