G-G Statement on the US Supreme Court's 2nd Amemdment Ruling

-- Office of the Governor-General

The Government and People of the Dominion of British West Florida applaud the recent decision by the United States Supreme Court upholding the individual right to keep and bear arms.

A people who retain the means to resist are seldom made slaves - the repressed throughout the world understand the power of an armed law abiding populace, as do all those who value liberty and good governance. Tyrannies depend on the resort to arms, arms they would deny to their subjects.

The decision by the US Supreme Court to uphold the right of persons – unconnected with any militia – to retain their own measure of self defense is a blow against tyranny. It is perhaps the first real action against terrorism the US Government has taken since the fall of the Taliban.

As Free Subjects of the Crown we commend our neighbors for recognising the fundamental right of self-defense, the natural right to protect one's property and the legal right to do so by force of arms if necessary.

God Save the Queen!
