Many have said that our founding fathers had no idea of the weapons that would be available today and that the second amendment is archaic, NCSA strongly disagrees as evidenced by the following; “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.” Noah Webster; An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 10 October 1787. “Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American... [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” Tench Coxe, Pennsylvania Gazette, 20 Feb1788.
NCSA is committed to protecting the original intent of the constitution and the individual liberties it declares. It is up to those who have taken the oath to step up and represent the people with conviction, without fear or excuse, against all federal and state usurpations, in a lawful and knowledgeable manner. We will continue to educate our sheriffs and other elected officials on their duty and responsibilities to the oaths they make. Our constitution was written in the common man’s English, so that there was no question as to its intent or meaning and no man would depend on another for interpretation. It is up to those that serve us, on every level, to provide the necessary checks and balances to preserve our freedom and liberties. In order to serve the people with integrity and honor one must first have knowledge and understanding of what that means and be mindful that we to shall live with the consequences of our actions.
