Front Sight Mail Bag: A Dangerous Servant and Fearful Master

April 29th, 2009  

Dr. Piazza,

170 million people traded a right for a privilege.

Privileges must be requested. Rights are demanded, or else. Excellent point you make here.

The simple fact is this: Government is power, pure and simple. People invest government with power to force the citizens to not do that which they should not do, and do that which they should. If those chosen to hold the reins of government were perfect men, there would be no need to protect ourselves from that delegated power. But “we have noticed by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, that as soon as they get a little authority as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion”.(Joseph Smith)

Therefore, as Thomas Jefferson said, we must look upon government like we relate to fire: as a dangerous servant and a fearful master. In its purest reasoning, guns freely in the hands of the common people are primarily for maintaining the power delegated to those who govern within the limits first established by the people. Any other reason is either fluff or nonsense.

“Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition”
