13 Year Olds Letter To Editor

The following is a letter I got our local paper to publish.
He'd originally done it as a research paper, which was way too long to publish.
So I had him edit it down so the paper would publish it for him.

Personally, it gives me hope that there are 13 year old young men in this country who "Get It".



When A Population Is Disarmed


When a population is disarmed, their government will abuse and defile their rights.

A government does not take notice of and respect the whining of slaves, but of the shouts and gunfire of free men.

This has been apparent through history in nations across the world.

It happened to the Russians who were duped into believing the absurdities of the Communist Party, a mistake that cost
them their freedom and dignity.

The Nazis disarmed the populations who were deemed impure or dangerous to their new empire, these populations were then slaughtered by the millions and sent to work in concentration camps.
There was an attempt to oppress American colonists by the English king; the first act he took against them, was an attempt at disarming them.

The one thing tyrants fear the most is their victims, for they know there will be a group that defies them. In taking away the weapons of a population, the government more easily controls and undermines the rights of its citizens. In this way, nations all over the world have fallen victim to the whims of dictators and madmen.

“If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary...”
-Alexander Hamilton.

Only we are not governed by angels, we are governed by men. Men can be tempted. Men can be crooked, so a government with crooked men will take advantage of an unarmed population. This is not to say that governments are all bad, without a central law there would be no order or protection.

But a government not controlled by its people and rooted in socialist ideology, creates a wealthy aristocracy that rules over the destitute peasants. These situations, when a majority are ruled by a warped few, is when tyranny grabs hold and rights are denied.

As a country we have fought against such a government.
It is the duty of the civilians of a tyrannical nation to protect their God given rights.
It is the duty of the civilian’s to watch and control their government.

And it is the duty of the civilians to restore Western values when they are lost, to relieve the aristocrats of their power and return it to the people.

It is the duty of the civilians to combat the tyranny of their government and hold it to trial.

I recognize that a disorganized civilian rebellion would fail against the professional army of a powerful nation. An organized militia, a group of free men, may yet stand against tyranny. These men would need suitable weapons to combat the armies of the tyrannical government. As it is the responsibility of the civilians to watch and check their government, it would be prudent for citizens to be organized and ready at any time to defend against an attack upon their freedom.

We The People of the United States, must guard against the mistakes of other nations by not putting our faith entirely in the government.

We must be ready for an assault on our liberties.

We must hold onto our weapons and not let ourselves be swayed into releasing them to the government.

America is it.

The last civilization that holds Western ideology. The rest of the world kids themselves that socialist systems are democratic and support the people.

It is the duty of America’s citizens, to ensure that the last hold of freedom does not fall.

And how can we do that, if our own government has the power to defile our rights and oppress our liberty?

We can’t, and that is why we must be armed, and armed to the teeth; for the day will come when enemies from within try to sabotage our nation.

We The Free, must be prepared to defend Western civilization and our liberty.

This was the long version:

Excuse the printing as the file it was on was difficult to copy the text.

The disarmament of the populace by the government has been a problem in many countries.
The ideology of socialists and communists enslaves the people and takes
their liberty. The tyrannical governments woo their citizens into thinking they will take care of them and provide for their every need. Then either by force or consent the
government disarms their citizens; this is when tyranny
truly reigns. The disarmament of a populace results in
disability to defend their liberty. Socialist and communist
countries world round have withheld the basic rights from
their populations that we, as free Americans, enjoy and
take for granted.
There have been several cases where countries who
have disarmed their citizens have been tyrannical and
brutal towards them. In 1924 Stalin won the power
struggle for the Communist Party. The people having been
disarmed 6 years prior, by Lenin's communist party had no
weapons to defend themselves against the government,
while the majority of the members of the Communist Party
were allowed to be armed. The December decree of the
Council of People's Commissars (CPC) of 1918, "On the
surrender of weapons," ordered people to surrender any
firearms, swords, bayonets and bombs, regardless of the
degree of serviceability.”(1) This allowed Stalin and the
Communist Party to have complete control over the
people. A reign of terror ensued with one million
imprisoned for belonging to another party, 11 million
prosperous peasants were driven from their lands and
exiled in the campaign for the forced collectivization of
farms, and three million arrested and sent to camps for
violating absurdly strict labour laws. (3)
Another example of a disarmed population being
exploited by the government would be the Nazi Party’s
mistreatment of Jews and other enemies of their state.
The Nazi’s did not disarm everyone during their reign of
power, only those they deemed unpure or dangerous to
their new empire. On November 11, 1938, the
“Regulations Against Jews’ Possession of Weapons,” was
issued. (5) In addition to this legislation, brown shirts
(enforcers of Nazi law) were already raiding Jewish
households for weapons. "The gun policy of the Nazis can
hardly be compared to the democratic procedures of gun
regulations by law, it was a kind of special administrative
practice or "Sonderrecht," which treated people in different
ways according to their political opinion or according to
‘racial identity’ in Nazi terms."-Dagmar Ellerbrock. (5) This
disarmament of the Jews led to the Nazi’s ability to brutally
slaughter millions of them. The Nazis were very powerful
and supported in Germany and those deemed “pure”
Germans, would not raise their arms in defence of their
countrymen.
Furthermore, in 1975, the militant state of Guatemala
was convinced that a group of indigenous people called
the Maya supported the guerrilla revolutionaries that were
threatening to overthrow the government. (1) Dictator and
military General Efrain Rios Montt was responsible for
ordering the mass murder of Mayans and destruction of
Mayan villages. Living under an oppressive dictatorship
the Maya did not have access to weapons to protect
themselves. In Guatemala only 12 out of 100 citizens have
private ownership of firearms, only 1 out of every 100
people have a license to own a firearm. (2) Strict
regulations on people who do own firearms ensure that
the population cannot legally have enough ammunition to
protect themselves from the government. The site
GunPolicy.org is supported in its findings by the UNSCAR
(United Nations Trust Facility Supporting Cooperation on
Arms Regulation), that “The regulation of guns in
Guatemala is categorised as restrictive.” Guatemala's
crime rate is one of the highest in Latin America. Not only
does the government take advantage of the poor and
unarmed population, but they allow bandits and brigands
to as well. On average there are 101 murders per week
according to the OSAC (Oregon Office of Student Access
and Completion). (6) With only a population of 16.91
million people, that is 2 persons per 1 million murdered
every week. The Guatemalan government does not
protect their people from criminals, but they restrict access
of armaments to their citizens, hindering the defence of
families.
There have been times when a tyrannical government
has been defeated by its people and was not able to
oppress them. The example I have of this is very much a
part of our history as Americans. In an attempt to curb
rising rebellious spirit and to prevent military action by the
colonist, King George ordered that the stockpiles of arms
at the settlement of Concord be confiscated in 1775. The
colonists did not agree with the ruling of the King and
decided to stand up to his tyrannical behaviour. A call was
put out and an army of free-men marched to stop this
strike against their liberty. The British forces were routed
at Concord and were harassed by patriot forces all the
way back to Boston. The conflict escalated and soon
America had thrown off her shackles and rose up against
the tyranny of the King in 1776 (on July 4, 1776). Then
with her provisional (French) ally wiped out the forces of
the King, the tyrant, and cast them from the land in 1783.
She is a shining example of a society of free-men, where
no king, tyrant, or government of any kind can oppress her
people.
We are free-men in America. Our liberties are
guaranteed to us by God and outlined in the Bill of Rights.
Since liberty is a gift from God, it must be protected at all
cost from a tyrannical government. Any legislation that
restricts or hampers the purchasing and stockpiling of
weapons by sane, law-abiding, and God-fearing citizens,
must not be allowed to pass into law. A government does
not take notice of and respect the whining of slaves, but of
the shouts and gunfire of free men. To ensure the
government respects us, we must ensure that we stay
free. As history shows us, only force and the sacrifice of
the brave provide freedom and respect unto a people.
That is why it is necessary to have an armed populace, so
we do not fall victim to powerful aristocrats that would
enslave us. They are the ones that push the agendas of
hate and heresy.
The greedy Democrats would have you believe in lies
and falsehoods in order to gain power and money. They
would have you believe that a powerful federal
government will protect and serve its people, providing
economic security and peace. These falsehoods are a
means by which they can seize power and money, they do
not have the good of their countrymen in mind. “If angels
were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls
on government would be necessary...”. -Alexander
Hamilton. Only we are not governed by angels, we are
governed by men. Men can be tempted, men can be
crooked; so a government with crooked men will take
advantage of an unarmed population. This is not to say
that a government at all is bad, without a central law there
would be no order or protection at all. But a government
who is not controlled by its people and adopts a socialist
ideology creates a wealthy aristocracy that rules over the
destitute peasants. It is the duty of the civilians of a
tyrannical nation to protect their God-given rights. It is the
duty of the civilian’s to watch and control their government.
It is the duty of the civilians to correct it and lead it back to
the West when it goes astray, to relieve the aristocrats of
their power and return it to the people. It is the duty of the
civilians to combat the tyranny of their government and
hold it to trial. This is why all citizens must be ready,
equipped and willing to face off against tyranny. For what
nation will take up the good fight, if the United States falls.
No nation, we are the last of our kind and we must not let
the last hold of justice and freedom in the world fall to the
Evil One's servants. We, the free, must be ready for those
who would sabotage America from within. We must be
prepared to destroy our corrupt countrymen and restore
God's law and Western values. We must be watchful, we
must be vigilant.
God bless the United States of America and our future
within her embrace.

Smart Kid, very nice job. Amazing a 13 year old "get's-it", but so many adults are too ignorant (because they don't look at history), too brainwashed by the Lefty, or just plain hateful of the American way and what it has stand for - for century's.

Great post! Great job of getting that message out where others might possibly take the message to heart. The hardcore leftist are too far gone to reach. This is for people that still have some true patriotic blood left flowing in their veins that have been lulled to sleep, or worse. Anyone that can be woken up is great and becomes an ally.

I wonder if we could get that published in the San Francisco Examiner or the LA Times? If not, we could drop a propaganda bomb on them and leaflet their asses! Then head up the coast and do it some more. That’ll make em’ mad!

Nice to see that the entire younger generation is not stuck in an i-phone glued to social media.

Maybe one day this kid will be president

I'd say the kids parents deserve a pat on the back also. They probably shaped his belief in America and what it takes to remain citizens not subjects.

The young lad's grasp of reality is no doubt bolstered by prudent and wise parenting. Kudos to parent and child alike.

A couple of pics.

Nephew and Mom and Dad this last Saturday as he was going to attend a "Gala".

And Nephew getting inducted into the Junior High National Honor Society.

All in all, he's growing into an impressive young man.

I am a little late to the thread but it is nice to know that there are young people out there who believe in America and the Constitution.

I'm Glad That He Wrote It

I wonder how that article would be received in the progressive/elite states? Would the young man be put on "enemy of the people" watch lists and maybe immediately expelled from public school as an imminent threat? I'm guessing: Maryland, New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Illinois, Vermont, California, Minnesota, Oregon and the District of Columbia (ahem, not a state).

EDIT: Add New Jersey to that list, and maybe Delaware.

Very good report, the young man gets it.

My 13 year old granddaughter goes to a very liberal private school and called me to help her with her debate.....she was the “pro” side of a debate on guns. I called her after the debate to see how it went and she said she was surprised at how many other students were pro gun. While the school is liberal, the city it is located in is still relatively conservative....for now.

When a criminal is arrested, what is the first thing the officer does? Searches and disarms the criminal. Why? Well, it's pretty obvious, the officer wants to limit the resistance the criminal can give. The government wants to limit the civilian right to be armed for a similar reason. While the police officer has a legitimate reason to be protected from criminal assault, the government has no legitimate reason to disarm otherwise lawful citizens. That's the difference.

That is a huge part of the problem. The liberalist seed is planted across the nation in schools smack dab in the center of conservative areas. If the education system is “allowed” to churn out graduates with this mentality that turn into teachers, the cycle will continue. They will spread their crap further. It’s kinda like kudzu, once it starts grabbing hold, it’s hard to get rid of. The tables need to be turned.

All in all, an intelligent young man I'm proud of.

And his stance on 2A just tops it all off.
