THE EIGHTH COMMANDMENT & GUN CONTROL (Part 1)

 

“Thou shalt not steal”  (Exodus 20:15)

 

“They that forsake the law praise the wicked: but such as keep the law CONTEND with them.”   (Proverbs 28:4)

 

“All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.”  (Edmund Burke)

 

THE EXPERTS AGREE -- GUN CONTROL WORKS

 

Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Mao Tse-Tung, Fidel Castro and Saddam Hussein all agree -- gun control works.  It makes the world safe for dictators. 

 

Unarmed citizens cannot effectively resist dictators when they arrest people in the middle of the night on phony charges.  When they imprison, enslave and terrorize whole populations.  When they torture and kill the innocent.

 

PRIVATE OWNERSHIP WRONG?

 

Some years ago, presidential candidate Michael Dukakis said, "I do NOT believe in private ownership of guns. ONLY the police and the military should have guns." 

 

The best way to test the soundness of such a theory is to find a place where only the police and the military have the guns.  For example, ONLY the police and the military had the guns in Red China's Tiananmen Square. 

 

The college age protesters were CRUSHED BY TANKS, then shot and bayoneted by soldiers.  What was their crime?  They protested a Communist Dictatorship and displayed a replica of the American Statue of Liberty.

 

Another place only the police and military had the guns was in Hitler's SS Death Camps.  We know the results of that gun control scheme.

 

Dictators don't want armed, law-abiding citizens.  An armed, informed citizenry is a threat to any dictator.  The film "Armed to the Teeth: the Worldwide Plague of Small Arms" is a prelude to a UN gun ban conference.

 

It seeks to ban all private ownership of firearms.  It makes no distinction between an RPG (rocket propelled grenade) and a deer-hunting rifle.  The UN conference, expected in July of 2001, seeks to override national sovereignty.

 

The UN is a modern day Tower of Babel, dominated by Communist, Muslim and Catholic nations.  It was never friendly toward the USA, a country founded on Calvinist ideas of LIMITED government, of the people, by the people, for the people.

 

PRIVATE PROPERTY -- THE RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS

 

The UN conference and all other attempts at gun control are in DIRECT OPPOSITION to our Constitution's Second Amendment, which declares:

 

“... the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”  The militia back then (when the Second Amendment was written) included every able-bodied male adult.  Each owned his (own) gun.

 

The following quotes are taken from The Lessons of History -- The Founding Fathers On Right to Bear Arms by Phyllis Schlafly -- The Schlafly Report, June, 2000:

 

James Madison: “Americans have ‘the advantage of being armed’ -- unlike the citizens of other countries where "the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” 

 

Patrick Henry: “The great object is that every man be armed.... Everyone who is able may have a gun.”

 

George Mason: “To disarm the people [is] the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

 

Samuel Adams: “The Constitution shall never be construed ... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”

 

Alexander Hamilton: “The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”

 

Richard Henry Lee: “To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.” 

 

The Second Amendment had nothing to do with hunting rights or sporting use of firearms (though these rights are implied).  It had everything to do with defense of life and liberty. 

 

An armed citizen is a FREE MAN.  A disarmed citizen can quickly become a slave of any armed dictator.  Gun registration has always been followed by gun confiscation, even in "free" countries such as England, Canada and Australia.

 

Banning private ownership of guns is theft.  It also amounts to theft of our American Constitution and Bill of Rights.  If the Government can steal your guns, they can steal all your other rights, too.  How will you stop them?

 

This e-mail is my plea to YOU to JOIN the NRA, if you are not already a member.  Cost of an annual membership is only about $35.00.  To join, call toll free 1-800-672-3888. 

 

The NRA fights for gun owners' rights.  It supports pro-gun candidates for Congress.  It defends gun owners in court.  There are an estimated 70 million gun owners in America. 

 

Yet only 4.2 million belong to the NRA.  We need to TRIPLE that number. 

Now is the time to stand up and be counted. Which is better -- join the NRA -- or shoot it out with those who want to confiscate your guns?  Remember this:

 

IF GUNS ARE OUTLAWED, ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS.

 

Government confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens is THEFT.  It is a massive violation of the Eighth Commandment “Thou shalt not steal”.

Tulip Gems is a Calvinistic Baptist web site that honors Jesus Christ and provides a free Hyperinflation Survival Guide.  We offer free Bible Articles on several subjects, including Bible Nutrition , Creation Science versus Evolution Passover , The Great Commission and Tulip Calvinism

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our
Survive Nuclear Attack page. While many Calvinists shy away from Bible prophecy, we don't. For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.

George Theiss is a combat veteran of Vietnam who now follows Lamb of God.  He and his wife Christy have been married 39 years. They have 8 children.
