Government schools never teach this stuff. But the American Revolution - and the War for Independence - were about much more than “taxation without representation.” The Revolution was about unlimited, arbitrary power - complete and total supremacy over the colonies. And the battles started over a British gun control program.

Incorporation - the legal doctrine whereby the Supreme Court applies the Bill of Rights to the states, was not part of the original, legal meaning of the Constitution. Instead, it arose out of the 14th Amendment, and the court first started applying it “selectively” in 1925.

Going from despotism - living under the largest government in history - to liberty - isn’t going to be a cake walk. But we’ve got some great teachers on how to get from here to there: the Founders and Old Revolutionaries. In their words - telling the story of our foundation, our path to liberty.

One of the grievances in the Declaration of Independence, the founders and old revolutionaries not only rejected the notion of “arbitrary” government, they considered it the definition of a tyranny.

The founding generation repeatedly warned us about the great dangers to liberty posed by large standing armies. The best way to guard against that danger? Prevent the need for them - one of the leading principles behind the 2nd Amendment.

Few people understand the root cause of the economic troubles we face, but the founding generation knew the situation well. For many, the “evils of paper money” were tyrannical and despotic. Or, as George Washington warned, it would “ruin commerce, oppress the honest, and open a door to every species of fraud and injustice.”

Approved unanimously on June 12, 1776, the Virginia Declaration of Rights, drafted primarily by George Mason, is one of the most important founding documents that many people have never even heard of. It influenced the text of the Declaration of Independence as well as the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Most people have a short memory, keep things partisan, or are completely ignorant of the history of federal gun control. None of these are acceptable ways to deal with the dangers we face. As Samuel Adams warned, “if we suffer tamely as lawless attack on our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom!”

Writing to James Madison about Shays’ Rebellion in early 1787, Thomas Jefferson said that “a little rebellion now and then is a good thing.” He considered it an essential check on government power - a warning that violations of the constitution and liberty might lead to serious trouble for rulers.

The founders and old revolutionaries fought a long, bloody war to free themselves from an arbitrary and tyrannical government based on a “living, breathing” constitution, only to see the people eventually embrace the very system they struggled to throw off.

When government goes beyond its just limits, the founders held that the people are not bound to “yield obedience.” From Patrick Henry in 1765 to Thomas Jefferson in 1798 this position was repeated over and over. But it didn’t start with the Constitution, or the Revolution.

Thomas Jefferson considered the 10th Amendment the “Foundation of the Constitution.” But he was far from alone. Even before the 10th was drafted, leading federalists repeatedly told us the Constitution was written under this same structure of delegated and reserved powers.

Necessary and Proper is one of the most misused and abused clauses in the Constitution. And much of the growth of government power is based on defining the word “necessary” as “convenient” rather than - well - necessary.

With federal enforcement numbers dropping by as much as 90% in the last 6 years, it should be obvious that the feds have a resource problem.
