“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.”

~ Thomas Jefferson


Second Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms


WHEREAS on July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress adopted the Declaration of Independence, declaring for posterity the founding Principles of this Nation, and

WHEREAS the Inhabitants of the United States of America have both the Moral and Legal Right to Life, Liberty and Property, and

WHEREAS the presence of Tyranny in the United States of America has steadily increased during the past century, engendering a severe Degradation of Rightful Liberty, and

WHEREAS the advent of rapid and widespread Information availability relieves us of the necessity of detailing that Degradation, and

WHEREAS the means by which the current government of the United States of America, as well as the many governments within it, accomplishes this Degradation is physical aggression, and the threat of physical aggression, against the Inhabitants of the United States of America,

BE IT THEREFORE DECLARED, by every Consentor to this Declaration, that

1.  We believe and act upon the Principles of the Declaration of Independence.

2.  We believe that it is each individual’s responsibility to provide all necessary support and, in concert with others freely chosen, all necessary defense for oneself and one’s family.

3.  We believe that the physical nature of the aggression being carried out against us is a Violation of both Morality and Law, and necessitates the bearing of personal arms in our day-to-day activities upon the public roads and highways, as well as upon any Property within the United States of America, with the Consent of the Rightful Owner of that Property.

4.  We believe that no person has any Right, neither Moral nor Legal, to Initiate physical force or compulsion against another, and further. that any and all employees of the United States of America, as well as any and all employees of any other governmental unit or agency within the United States of America, are strictly prohibited to Initiate such compulsion.

5. We believe that being essential to the protection and support of ourselves, our families and our country, no restrictions upon speech, self-defense, association, refusal of association, worship, private property, parental authority, or the privacy of one’s affairs and writings shall be permitted or tolerated.

6.  We believe in the American tradition that every Rightful Inhabitant of the United States of America has both the Moral and Legal Right to defend any peaceable Person that Inhabitant chooses, by whatever means that Inhabitant deems prudent and necessary.

7.  We believe unfailingly in the Right affirmed in the Second Amendment to the Constitution duly ratified, that the Right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, notwithstanding any interpretation of any explanatory clause in that Amendment.  We further believe that the Right of Defense with Arms is recognized by the Second Amendment, and not Granted by it.

8.  We affirm that it is our desire to live peacefully among all Rightful Inhabitants of this Nation, and we believe that the resort to physical force is a means exclusively for the purpose of defending our bodies and our property.

AND IN CONCLUSION, the Consentors to this Declaration believe that this Declaration can be well summarized with the penultimate paragraph of the (First) Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms, issued by the Second Continental Congress on July 6, 1775, to wit…

“In our own native land, in defence of the freedom that is our birth-right, and which we ever enjoyed till the late violation of it; for the protection of our property, acquired solely by the honest industry of our forefathers and ourselves, against violence actually offered, we have taken up arms. We shall lay them down when hostilities shall cease on the part of the aggressors, and all danger of their being renewed shall be removed, and not before.

THUS DO THE CONSENTORS DECLARE, with the recognition and affirmation that they so Consent freely, and with Integrity and Commitment, in the belief that this Declaration  is their best means to restore the Honor, Wealth and Happiness that was once ubiquitous across this Nation.  We commit ourselves to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness and will lay down our Arms when our physical Defense no longer requires them, and not one moment before.
