Ways to Defend the Second Amendment - 23 Action Steps

By Tim Gamble

Amendment II

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

1) Know Your Rights - We have a natural (God-given) right to self-defense, and this includes the tools needed to defend ourselves. This unalienable right is recognized and guaranteed by the Second Amendment to U.S. Constitution. Guns are a very useful, even necessary, tool of self-defense. They are also great for hunting, providing food, recreation through shooting sports, and collecting. But their primary function, as enshrined in the Constitution by our Founding Fathers, is for self-defense, against both bad people and bad governments

Action Steps:

A) Read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
B) Get a "pocket copy" of both (various organizations often give away such copies).
C) Read the article "The Six Things Americans Should Know About the Second Amendment" by Richard W. Stevens.
D) Check out the Biblical Self-Defense website.
E) Learn the laws of your state and locality regarding firearms, self-defense, and concealed-carry & open-carry. Your local gun store should be able to help with this step. 

[Why know State Laws if the Second Amendment is clear? Because politicians and government officials don't always follow the Constitution, and it is difficult to defend the Second Amendment from a jail cell.]

2) Work to Change Unconstitutional Laws and Excessive Regulations

Many states and localities have passed legislation that violates the Second Amendment and/or otherwise restricts our inalienable right to self-defense. We must work diligently to change these laws and to prevent new restrictions. This takes time, effort, and awarenessThe cost of freedom is eternal vigilance. 

Action Steps:

A) Know the positions of political candidates regarding guns and self-defense. Do not vote for candidates that do not fully support the Second Amendment or that favor restrictions, even so-called "commonsense" restrictions, on guns and self-defense. This is especially important in state and local elections!
B) Make your voice heard. Pressure your politicians at all levels to be pro-Second Amendment, and to resist all gun control efforts. Many politicians end up voting in the direction they feel the greatest pressure. We have to make sure we out-pressure the Global Elites. The Elites are very good at this, and have the support of the main stream media and academia. We have to be better than them. Write, call, email, and visit your elected officials often. Attend town halls. Write newspaper editorials. Be outspoken. 
C) Here's how to contact federal, state, and local government officials: click this link. 
D) Many gun rights organizations provide legislative alerts and suggested actions to take. Join their email lists and/or follow them on social media to stay informed of these opportunities. (A list of some of these organizations is in step #3 below.)

3)  Join Forces with Others Defending the Second Amendment

There are many organizations defending the Second Amendment. Here are a few you should consider joining. 

Action Steps:

A) Gun Owners Association (GOA) (TwitterWebsite, YouTube)
B) National Rifle Association (NRA) (TwitterWebsiteYouTube)
C) National Association for Gun Rights (GabTwitterWebsiteYouTube)
D) The Second Amendment Foundation (TwitterWebsite)
E) Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (Twitter

4) Know the Facts

Over the years, many politicians and activists have been caught reciting facts and statistics that were highly distorted or even completely made-up. Opponents of the Second Amendment have no qualms about lying to get their way. It is crucial that we know the real facts and statistics so that we cannot be mislead, and so that we can correct the record and prevent others from being mislead.

Action Steps:

A) Visit and explore the Gun Facts website
B) Download and read the free GOA ebook Gun Facts 6.2 (link opens a .pdf) - if someone knows of a newer version of this book, please drop a link to it in the comments section below. 

5) Promote Gun Ownership

Action Steps:
A) Own guns and enjoy them. 
B) Encourage others to own guns, and to pursue hunting and shooting hobbies. The more people who own and enjoy guns, the harder it will be for the Global Elites to take our guns away. 
C) Invite a gun-wary friend, neighbor, or co-worker to go hunting or shooting with you. Get to them before the Global Elites do.

6) Schools and Zero-Tolerance

Schools have enacted zero-tolerance policies that go way beyond banning the actual weapons from schools. School kids have, and are, getting suspended, expelled, and sometimes arrested for such absurdities as merely using the word "gun", drawing a picture of a gun, having one of those green plastic army men with a gun, biting a pop-tart into the shape of a gun, having a toy "bubble gun" or water pistol that looks nothing like a real gun, and even holding their forefinger and thumb into a gun shape while playing on the playground (no more playing cowboys and Indians, or even cops and robbers).

School officials are smart enough to understand the difference between a half-eaten pop tart that is sort of in the shape of a gun, and a real gun. They intentionally overreact to such an incredible extent not to discourage guns on campus, but to instill a deep-seated fear of guns into students. Global Elites know that if the current generation of students are afraid of guns, it will be easier to ban guns once they grow up.  

Action Steps:

Fight these absurd zero-tolerance rules in your kids' schools. Stand up to administrators who think your kid should be arrested for biting a potato-chip in such a way that it vaguely resembles a gun. Point out the absurdity of pretending that the tiny plastic gun that the green plastic army man is holding is the same as the real thing. 
B) Make sure you are voting for school board members who respect the Second Amendment, as well as the rest of the Constitution and Bill of Rights. This is absolutely crucial. 
C) Teach your kids to respect guns, not to fear them. Teach them how to use guns safely. Take them shooting and hunting. Check out the NRA's Eddie Eagle GunSafe Program for kids.

7) Men, Take Your Women Shooting

Men, take your wives and girlfriends shooting. The more women who get into hunting and other shooting sports, the more secure the Second Amendment will be in the future.

Think about it. Wherever Mothers go, there go their children. The more that children are exposed to responsible gun ownership, and the safe and fun use of guns, the less fearful they will be of guns, despite the anti-gun indoctrination in our schools.

The long-term future of the Second Amendment is being determined in the fight for the hearts and minds of children. The anti-gun activists know that the more fearful children are of guns while they are young, the more fearful they will be when they grow up. Then those fearful future adults - who will be voters, politicians, judges, bureaucrats, school administrators, teachers, and in other positions of influence - will be easier to convince to do away with the Second Amendment and accept complete gun confiscation (the ultimate goal of gun control).

Action Steps:

A) Men, Take Your Women Shooting. The best and easiest way to stop the intentional spread of the fear of guns into children is to get their mothers into guns. Take your wife or girlfriend to the shooting range. Take them hunting. Get them into guns. And the message will seep down to their children.


I'm not a woman, but I do have some commonsense suggestions for how to get your wife or girlfriend into shooting: 
  • Be patient. 
  • Make it fun. 
  • Don't be a jerk, talk down to her, or make it into some macho thing. 
  • The purpose is to get her into shooting, not to show off your skills or to impress her with your manliness.
  • Don't take over and try to make decisions for her. 
  • Let other people help - you're probably the wrong person to teach her how to shoot, no matter how good you are. 
  • Take a class together. 
  • Don't "take her" shooting or hunting, instead go shooting or hunting together (an important difference, especially to a woman). 
  • Let her progress at her own pace.
I would love to get suggestions from women on how to get women into shooting sports. Please leave suggestions in the comments section below.

Are Preppers Part of the Problem?

By Tim Gamble

Every so often I see folks make a comment similar to this one: "I could never be a prepper. Preppers just hide from problems in their mountain retreat, instead of being part of the solution." There is so much ignorance in those statements. Let me try to answer some of it. 

Call it whatever - preparedness, survivalism, self-reliance - but it does not mean shutting yourself off from your friends or community. It certainly doesn't mean heading for the hills and hiding, heavily armed, in a secret compound having no contact with the outside world until after some dread doomsday comes to pass. Far from being cowards hiding from problems, preppers are realists who recognize that problems do exist and are trying to do something to protect themselves and their families from those problems. 

If you have ever listened to a flight attendant give emergency instructions, you may have noticed that they tell parents traveling with children to put the oxygen mask on themselves first, before putting one on their child. The airlines don't say that because they hate children. Instead, they know that if a parent is to help their child, they must first be able to do so. A parent unconscious from the lack of oxygen will be of absolutely no help to their child.

Likewise, we will be of little or no help to our family, friends and community, if we are the ones in need of help ourselves. In fact, our own helplessness may make matters much worse for our community. Far from being selfish, building self-reliance and being prepared may be among the smartest and most generous things you can do for others.

At its heart, preparedness is about self-reliance - the ability to depend on ourselves in an emergency, rather than being helpless and totally dependent on government agencies or other outside forces to save us. Being ready for an emergency, be it anything from a natural disaster to an unexpected job loss, is important. But the importance of preparedness goes way beyond that. Preparedness is about saving our families, our country, our freedoms, and our way of life. It is about saving civilization itself. Consider this:

The more self-reliant we are as individuals, families, and communities, the less need we will have for government, and the less power the Elites will have over our lives. This fact is is obvious to the Elites, which is why they have focused so much effort on attacking the concept of self-reliance, labeling it as too hard, unrealistic, unfair, and selfish, among other things. The Elites want us as dependent on government, and therefore on them, as possible. It is about control. 
Being prepared and self-reliant removes much of that control. In turn, this gives us the freedom and the ability to become part of the real solutions, rather than just remaining part of the problem.

AD:  Augason Farms Long-Term Food Storage - This is where I get powdered butter, eggs, cheese, milk, and other long-term foods for my Survival Pantry. Shelf-life up to 20+ years. Good quality, good taste, good value. For my money (literally, since I am a paying customer), Augason Farms is the best long-term foods option.

Resisting the Global Elites: A How To Article

I posted this article on back in December. Much of the information in it is useful to preppers and survivalists as well, so I decided to repost it here for those who don't follow my other website. 

Ways to Resist the Global Elites

By Tim Gamble

Call it the Global Elites, the Deep State, the Political Class, or whatever else you want. It is all just different names for various aspects of the same beast. A group of people - powerful, wealthy, influential - who want to fundamentally change America and Western Civilization. A change that will leave the Elites permanently at the top of society, above the laws and struggles that the rest of us face, with a tightly-controlled underclass that has no real freedom or economic opportunity. 

The Elites want an end to any real borders and the idea of national sovereignty, which requires an end to patriotism. 

The Elites want ultimate control of the economy, which means an end to private property rights and the rights of inheritance (except for themselves, of course, and they do write the laws, installing loopholes for their accountants and lawyers to use). 

The Elites also want an end to cash, preferring a cashless, digital system to better monitor and control the populace. 

The Elites want to be unfettered by morality, thus desire to end biblical Christianity, as well as traditional family and gender roles. They see both God and the family unit as competition to their desired One World controlled by them.

You only has to pay attention to current events, as well as historical trends over the last few decades to see their plan slowly working out. The question is How do we stop their plans? How do way resist? 

Get out of the system and build self-reliance. 

The more we are part of the system, the more control they have over us, and the less ability we have to resist their plans. Many of us are already afraid to speak out. We are afraid of being labeled as racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or otherwise a "hater." Cancel culture means we face the possible consequences such as losing not only our social media accounts, but also our jobs, our businesses, or even our friends and family. Political correctness isn't about wanting people to be nice or polite to each other, it is about intimidation. Wokeness isn't about social or environmental "justice" but rather is a bullying tactic the Left uses to get their way. Do what we say to do. Think the way we tell you to think. Or we will destroy you.   

How do we get out of the system? Getting entirely out of the system will be extremely difficult, if not impossible. But we can extricate ourselves from much of the system, if we are willing to do the hard work and sacrifice to do so. I've written about this before, but here is a recap:
  • Homeschooling is better than parochial & private schools is better than public schools. 
  • Working for yourself is better than working for a small business is better than working for a large corporation or the government.
  • Owning out-right is better than paying a mortgage is better than renting.
  • A credit union is better than a small regional bank is better than a big national bank. 
  • Paying cash is better than a debit card is better than a credit card.
  • Going all cash & barter is best of all, but probably impossible in practical terms.
  • Taking care of your health is better than needing a hospital.
  • Entertaining ourselves (reading, family game night, hosting a bar-b-que, going bowling, going fishing, etc.) is better than relying on TV, the movies, and pop culture.
  • Living in a small rural community is better than living in a city is better than living in a mega-city.
And the list could go on and on. Its not easy getting out of the system, and may be impossible to do so completely, but shed yourself of as much of the system as you can. 

Become much more self-reliant. Be able to think for yourself, and do for yourself, as much as possible. The more self-reliant you and your family are, the less you will be affected by what is coming, and the more you'll be able to resist. Do everything you can to build as much self-reliance as you can while there is still time. 

Thinking for yourself means uncluttering your mind of all the rubbish coming out of the mainstream media, pop culture, and academia. Stop blindly trusting "experts." Turn off mainstream media and the late-night comedians. Tune out much of the current pop culture. Explore the alt-media, but don't just blindly accept what their pushing either. Read a variety of sources, investigate for yourself, and think for yourself. Ask yourself questions: Does this really make sense? Is it logical? Does it fit what I already know to be true? Does it give facts that I can check, or is it just speculation? 

Self-reliance is also being able to do for yourself. Take responsibility for your own life. Don't sit around waiting for others, or the government, to do things for you. Get informed. Make your own decisions. Learn skills. Gain experience. Do things. 

On my Dystopian Survival website, there are over 350 free articles on self-reliance, personal finance, health & fitness, first aid, gardening, safety & security, homesteading, general preparedness, and other modern survival topics. Please check it out. 

Resist the move to a cashless, digital economy. This is a huge part of the "global reset" and a tool for the Elites to control the masses. Resist by using cash whenever possible, and encourage others to do so, too. I've recently written two articles I hope you will read on this topic. The first, Stop The Madness! Keep Cash Alive!!, explains why a cashless economy is a really, really bad idea. The second, How To Prepare For the End of Cash, explains how to prepare for and survive a cashless economy. 

Privacy is paramount. The more I study what is going on, the more I realize the importance of privacy, and how difficult it is to guard. Don't fall for the "only bad guys have to worry about privacy" line of stupidity that many people push. Think about and take steps to protect your privacy, both online and in real life. I have a number of articles on privacy and on operational security on my Dystopian Survival website. 

How To Resist?  The best way to resist is to do the the opposite of what they want. 
  • They want open borders, so fight for secure borders and controlled immigration.
  • They want to end national sovereignty, so fight for national sovereignty and a strong military. 
  • They want to ridicule and belittle patriotism, so be patriotic, and encourage others to be patriotic, too.
  • They want to end private property rights, so fight for laws protecting private property rights.
  • They want to restrict inheritance, so fight to end restrictions and taxation on inheritance.
  • They want a cashless economy, so insist on using cash. 
  • They want to end traditional Christianity, so be a traditional, Bible-believing follower of the Messiah. This definitely means getting out of liberal/progressive churches.
  • They want to end the traditional family, so fight for it. 
  • They want to end traditional ideas of gender, so teach your children to be Real Men and Real Women.
  • They want control over your children's education, health, and bodies, so fight for your kids. 
Other Ideas for Resisting:
  • Honest elections matter, so fight for election reform, voter ID laws, and especially an end to ballot harvesting.
  • Control of the Judiciary is critical. Judgeships matter deeply.
  • Be very active in local politics and talk to local officials. Local efforts, where our "leaders" must deal with us face-to-face, can be very effective.
  • In reality, local politics are more important than state politics. And state politics are more important than Federal politics. 
  • Influence your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow church members. Don't be cowed by political correctness or wokeness. 
  • Make use of Alt-Media to stay informed. But always think for yourself. 
  • My opinion: the best source of real journalism today is The Epoch Times.  
  • Learn about Technocracy, which is a primary tool the Elites are using to change our world. 
  • A great introduction to technocracy is my article Technocracy, The Power Elite, and the Transformation of Human Civilization
  • The best source of news regarding technocracy is the website Technocracy News & Trends.
  • Men, provide for, protect, and lead your family. Don't give in to worldly ways, modern sensibilities, wokeness, and political correctness. Be a Real Man. 
  • Parents, you are responsible for your children's welfare, not schools, teachers, or even the government. Teach your children, and stand between them and the dangers of political correctness and wokeism. 
  • Start building networks and communities of like-minded people you can trust. This takes time and effort, which is why it needs to be done now, not later. (Lots of community building articles on my Dystopian Survival website.)
  • Be especially wary of polices and laws that can be used as a "backdoor" to limit or take away our Freedoms. Hate speech laws allow the government to define "hate" however they wish. School anti-bullying policies more often are used to prevent your children from wearing a patriotic shirt ("bullying" immigrants) rather than stopping a real bully from taking your kid's lunch money. Red Flags laws have "gun confiscation" written all over them, especially in light of the APA's willingness to define traditional masculine traits as harmful.
What about armed resistance? Armed resistance is an absolute last resort, as it is extremely difficult with deadly consequences. Frankly, most of us are not prepared to become guerrilla fighters, and likely would only get ourselves and probably our families killed. And lone wolf attacks accomplish nothing, except to give the media some wonderful propaganda to spin and to give government an excuse for yet more restrictions to our freedoms. 

I strongly believe in the right to self-defense, but I also strongly reject the unprovoked or unnecessary use of violence to achieve our goals. My advice for now is to concentrate instead on resisting in safer and more effective ways.
AD:  Resistance Operating Concept (ROC), by Otto C. Fiala and the Joint Special Operations University Press, teaches "developing a nationally authorized, organized resistance capability prior to an invasion and full or partial occupation resulting in a loss of territory and sovereignty." Although specifically written to address a foreign invasion, the ideas and concepts it presents could certainly be used by the people to resist an oppressive or tyrannical government. (This is the book T.J. of Bear Independent has often recommended.)

My Survival Gurus

By Tim Gamble

Who are my Survival Gurus? Who do I follow and listen to when it comes to survival (and life)? Its actually a short list:

MainePrepper - MainePrepper taught me much through his YouTube videos. A Master Sargent in the military, MainePrepper did videos on everything from basic preparedness, to diet and exercise, to guns and riflemanship, to tracking/countertracking, to leadership, et. al. Although he stopped making videos and took down his YouTube channel so he could focus on dealing with the results of injuries (received in Iraq if I remember correctly), you can still find many of his videos, as well as interviews others did with him, on YouTube. Just type in "MainePrepper" (one word) in YouTube search. 

Joe Fox (aka Viking Preparedness) - A Green Beret in his military career, PJ (for Pastor Joe) is now doing what he calls neo-pioneering and building a true community of like-minded folks in the Ozarks. Tons of great information on his channels (preparedness, homesteading, hard-core survival, religion, et. al.), and great stories from his military days. He has a book out, which I think is the best guide to beginner and intermediate preparedness and survival. Don't forget to check out his sermons, too! Links:

David Kobler (aka SouthernPrepper1) - Another career military man (Army Infantry), SP1 has been making YouTube videos for well over a decade now. I was watching his videos long before Doomsday Preppers (of which I've never seen a full episode), and have learned much from him. I especially like his videos on home & community defense, as well as his salvaging videos. Many folks new to prepping probably know him best for his "Boots on the Ground" reports on his YouTube channel. He also has a couple of books available on Amazon. Links:

TJ Morris (aka Bear Independent) - Founder and owner of Refuge Medical (high quality, American made first aid kits and medical supplies), Bear has quite the interesting life story (too long to go into here). Lots of great info on his YouTube and Patreon channels including basic preparedness, first aid, homesteading, community building, business insights, leadership, and even Bible reading and commentary. He is also the founder of Grindstone Ministries (disaster relief) and Kaleb House (a restoration facility for juvenile human trafficking survivors). Links:

I call these men my gurus, not my mentors, because I haven't met any of them in real life, although I have communicated to a couple of them over the internet. There are two things that all four men share in common that I highly respect. First, all four men are not just talking the talk, but are walking the walk. They have done, and are doing, the things, and doing them well. Second, all four are real men, Biblical men, who each take their relationship with the Creator seriously. These are men of The Book. 

There are, of course, other prepper, survival, and homesteading channels I like, but who don't quite make the "guru" cut. These four are the only ones I subscribe to on YouTube (and on Patreon in the cases of PJ and Bear). 

AD:  Augason Farms Long-Term Food Storage - This is where I get powdered butter, eggs, cheese, milk, and other long-term foods for my Survival Pantry. Shelf-life up to 20+ years. Good quality, good taste, good value. For my money (literally, since I am a paying customer), Augason Farms is the best long-term foods option.

What's Next?

By Tim Gamble

What's next? What will the Elites try next in their attempt to control mankind and recreate the world to their benefit. I've been talking a lot about this subject on social media lately. Here are my thoughts:

Call it global warming, climate change, or whatever, but the so-called "climate crisis" isn't a crisis. It is merely propaganda (that is why you are not supposed to question it) meant to instill fear and make you (the general public) more controllable.

Ultimately, "climate crisis" wasn't generating enough fear. Most people weren't becoming controllable enough, therefore the Elites tried a new tactic, called "Covid 19" (again, notice that you aren't supposed to question it, meaning it is propaganda). This tactic did generate a lot more fear, allowing for global lockdowns, school and church closings, forced masking, and experimental vaccinations of the sheeple.  

It was good for a time, with the Elites gaining much control, but that fear is wearing off, except for some feeble-minded folks. More people are waking up everyday, and pushing back against the control measures by the Elites. Now the question is, what will be the next control tactic?

Maybe a massive food shortage  and worldwide famine? Notice the high food inflation, crop failures (blamed on "climate crisis"), killing off of chickens and turkeys due to "bird flu crisis" (which you are also not supposed to question), anti-farming policies, fertilizer shortages, Bill Gates and the CCP buying up massive amounts of farmland, et. al.

Or maybe another pandemic, this one perhaps specifically targeting our children? Notice the recent shortages of children's cold & flu medicines, fever reducers, etc., as well as a healthcare crisis caused by a shortage of nurses and doctors. Notice how extremely eager they are to get young children (who are under no real threat from Covid) jabbed with the Covid vaccine with all its potential negative consequences to the immune system? 

Or maybe a worldwide economic meltdown and a collapse of the US dollar?

Or maybe something else entirely?

I don't know what's next. I have a gut-feeling it may be an "all the above" scenario. Whatever is next, we need to prepare. You need to prepare. So, ask yourself this weekend: What am I doing to prepare for what's next, whatever it may be?

Debt Ceiling? Government shutdown? -- DON"T PANIC!

By Tim Gamble

Folks, just a quick one today encouraging people not to panic over the debt ceiling news. Just remember that we go through this every few years, and we always survive. We will survive this time, too. Despite the alarmist headlines, over-the-top rhetoric, and the photo-ops of "closed" national monuments, we always survive. All this happened before, and will happen again. Don't worry, and certainly don't panic.

What will happen? Much like previous debt-ceiling battles, politicians will expend a lot of hot-air. News media (and prepper channels) will post a lot of click-bait headlines. We may have a (partial) government shut-down for a few days or even a couple of weeks. Or not. Eventually, the debt-limit will be raised, with perhaps a few token spending cuts so politicians can claim they actually did something. Life will move on.

We are already in a recession, so this won't be the cause of it. Nor will it make it worse (its already probably going to be fairly severe). The dollar may collapse one day, but this won't be the cause of it.

Don't panic. Just keep working your preparedness plans. And enjoy the weekend.

Community For Preppers

By Tim Gamble

Community. So many of us - preppers, survivalists, conservatives, Christians - want it. But few of us seem to find it. Fewer still seem able to build it. Yet, we feel its call. Humans are social creatures by nature. We want to be with others. We also feel on a gut level that we will need others if we are to survive the threats and hardships that are coming our way. Because of this, community is a hot topic of discussion. How do we find it? How do we create it? How do we do it?

I've written many articles on different aspects of community, and have several more planned in the coming months. Until those come out, here is a quick index of my earlier articles:

Why Survival Requires Community

Why Preppers Have a Hard Time Building Community

Building Community in Your Neighborhood

Urban Survival: Networking and Building Community

Building Community - Evaluating Potential Members

Building Community? Warning Signs of People to Avoid

How To Be a Survival Group Leader


AD:  Proverbs 22:3 T-Shirt - "A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences." - Available in men's, women's, and youth sizes, and in multiple colors.
