Feinstein's Gun Control Bill Will Trigger The Next American Revolution
Zero Hedge ^ | December 28, 2012 | Brandon Smith

Posted on 12/28/2012 10:03:18 AM PST by Errant

...Revolution? Yes, it all sounds rather “extreme”, but the cold hard reality of our era is not going to comfort us with diplomacies and niceties, so honestly, why should I have to sugar coat anything? We live in extreme times and there is no longer room for prancing around the ultimate consequences of that which is taking place in America today. This country is increasingly sliding towards the edge of internal conflict. The Liberty Movement and true Constitutionalists see it, subsections of Republicans and Democrats see it, and most of all, the federal government sees it. In fact, they may even be counting on it...

That, or the single largest 'criminalization' of American citizens since the Prohibition.
Or the largest collective 'ignoring' of a 'law' in history...

Your post brought this to mind: I moved to a small secluded farm in central KY from my longtime home of Seattle last year. I confess that the scariest scene I’ve seen in any movie is the opening scene in Inglorious Basterds. You really can’t hide, and our government is FAR more sophisticated than they were.

Did you know about the “Crocodile Dundee”? I suspect it’s one of the models gun grabbers will use in coming months.

When Australia decided to go the way of tyranny and force her law-abiding people to turn in their firearms, Mr. Rodney William Ansell (aka the real “Crocodile Dundee”) refused to comply with the tyranny. Australian police attempted to disarm him by force. A shoot-out occurred, and Mr. Ansell was killed along with an Australian policeman.

Here is his story, written by Vin Suprynowicz and originally published Sept. 19, 2006:

Rodney William Ansell a.k.a “Crocodile Dundee”
A few days ago, the Review-Journal – along with a lot of other metropolitan dailies – gave prominent coverage to the death of Steve Irwin, the popular Australian zookeeper who charmed international audiences with his enthusiastic animal-chasing on the Discovery Network’s Animal Planet channel.

Irwin, widely known as “the Crocodile Hunter,” was killed Monday by a stingray that rose and stabbed him in the chest with its spine while the 44-year-old was at work filming a television segment, swimming at Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Irwin’s enthusiasm was infectious. His manner of death was certainly noteworthy. All doubtless sympathize with his wife and two young children.

Still, Irwin died doing what he loved. And without diminishing his memory or his family’s loss, perhaps we can draw a distinction between a death that is merely unfortunate and fascinating and one that is significant.

It could be an interesting exercise to compare the prominent coverage of Irwin’s death with the slim few paragraphs (at most) devoted by the America news media on or about Aug. 4, 1999, to the death of 44-year-old Rodney William Ansell. The 1988 Australian Northern Territory Man of the Year – so honored in part because he was widely acknowledged to be the real-life character on whom Paul Hogan, Ken Shadie, and John Cornell based their movie character “Crocodile Dundee” – was killed in a shootout with police.

Yes, the circumstances surrounding Ansell’s death took a little more time to put together. The question is: Did anyone in the press ever bother, and if not, why not?

Ansell was just 21 when he became lost for two months in the bush west of Darwin. He’d been on a fishing trip near the mouth of the Victoria River, accompanied only by his two cattle dogs, when his boat was capsized and sunk, possibly by a whale. He managed to board his tender vessel, a small dinghy with only one oar, and retrieve his dogs and a small amount of equipment including his rifle, knives and bedding – but no fresh water.

Alone, far from any shipping lanes, Ansell traveled up the Fitzmaurice River over the next 72 hours, becoming severely dehydrated before finally finding fresh water above the tide line. He then managed to survive for two months by hunting and shooting cattle for food, before being rescued by a small party of drovers. (Presumably it wasn’t their cattle he’d been shooting, or our tale might be much shorter.)

Ansell, blond and bearing an uncanny resemblance to actor Paul Hogan, wrote a book and starred in a documentary about his exploits, both called “To Fight the Wild.” The story sparked the interest of actor Hogan and his co-writers, who scored a major hit with their 1986 film “Crocodile Dundee.”

Seven years ago, Ansell was killed in a shootout with police just south of Darwin. An Australian police sergeant also died. Why?

In a June 2000 essay, physician, author, and Cuban émigré Dr. Miguel Faria asks what was going on in Australia in the late 1990s that could help explain the timing of this famous Australian survivalist shooting it out with authorities:

“Although Ansell was no angel and had had previous run-ins with police, he had been named 1988 Australian Northern Territory Man of the Year for inspiring the movie and putting ‘the Australian Outback on the map,’” Dr. Faria notes.

“What motivated this shooting? In 1996, Australia adopted Draconian gun control laws banning certain guns (60 percent of all firearms), requiring registration of all firearms and licensing of all gun owners. ‘Crocodile Dundee’ believed the police were coming to confiscate his unregistered firearms.

“In Australia today, police can enter your house and search for guns, copy the hard drive of your computer, seize records, and do it all without a search warrant,” Dr. Faria reports. “It’s the law that police can go door to door searching for weapons that have not been surrendered in their much publicized gun buy-back program. They have been using previous registration and firearm license lists to check for lapses and confiscate non-surrendered firearms.”

It all began with the Port Arthur (a Tasmanian resort) tragedy on April 28, 1996, Dr. Faria recalls, “when a crazed assailant opened fire and shot 35 people. Australians were shocked, and the government reacted quickly.

“Draconian gun legislation was passed in the heat of the moment. … As a result of stringent gun laws (really a ban on firearms) in Australia, all semiautomatic firearms (rifles and handguns) are proscribed, including .22-caliber rabbit guns and duck-hunting Remington shotguns. …

“At a cost of $500 million, out of an estimated 7 million firearms (of which 2.8 million were prohibited), only 640,000 guns were surrendered to police. What has been the result? Same as in England. … Crime Down Under has escalated.

“Twelve months after the law was implemented in 1997, there had been a 44 percent increase in armed robberies, an 8.6 percent increase in aggravated assaults, and a 3.2 percent increase in homicides,” reports Dr. Faria, a retired Georgia neurosurgeon who wrote “Medical Warrior” and “Cuba in Revolution: Escape From a Lost Paradise,” and served until recently as editor-in-chief of “The Medical Sentinel,” the journal of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

“That same year in the state of Victoria, there was a 300 percent increase in homicides committed with firearms. The following year, robberies increased almost 60 percent in South Australia. …

“Two years after the ban, there have been further increases in crime: armed robberies by 73 percent; unarmed robberies by 28 percent; kidnappings by 38 percent … according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

“And consider the fact that over the previous 25-year period, Australia had shown a steady decrease both in homicide with firearms and armed robbery – until the ban. …

“The ban on firearms and the disarmament of ordinary Australians has left criminals free to roam the countryside as they please.

“Bandits, of course, kept their guns. … Yet the leftist Australian government has responded by passing more laws; in 1998 Bowie knives and other knives and items including handcuffs were banned.

“Licensing is difficult. Self and family protection is not considered a valid reason to own a firearm. The right to self-defense, like in Great Britain and Canada, is not recognized in Australia. … A way of life has ended. Please, don’t tell me it cannot happen here!”

Did the real-life Crocodile Dundee die because his own government left him with no choice but to “use his guns” – guns which had saved his life – “or lose them”?

If so, why did we hear so little about it? Because many in the press are loath to report the “bad outcomes” of victim disarmament? It certainly doesn’t seem to be because Americans don’t care about the fate of famous, good-looking Australian crocodile hunters.

Actually, her bill follows the plan liberals have used to wind for decades.

They want a ‘5’ in gun control.

They go in asking for a ‘12’.

Soon the media, Rinos, and various other imbeciles start their blather about ‘compromise.’

Everyone gets into the act, and then next thing you know, many people are patting themselves on the back about how we only got stuck with a ‘5’ when they wanted a ‘12’. And “Oh by the way”, send us more money.

This pattern has happened so many times, I can almost predict it to the minute.

Lets just say it won't be a good time to be a cop. They do this crap at their own peril.

“Gee, I didn't know the person at the door was a cop...thought they were an intruder.”

Again, this will be bad time to be in law enforcement. Lawlessness begets lawlessness.

Remember: chaos only benefits a dictator when they can CONTROL the chaos. Doubt me? Ask Nicolae Ceausescu how that worked out for him.

If and when the radio, TV, phones and internet all cease to function all at once, you will know that the regime has started weapons confiscation and the roundup of conservatives.

Your assignment is to terminate any Democrat party operatives within your reach, starting as high as possible in the chain of command. Those giving the orders to the underlings must be the first to pay.

Remember how Ferdinand Marcos did it in the Philippines? I saw what was coming.

1. Gun registration, the US media loved it!

2. A year later, Gun confiscation of registered guns, the US media loved it!

3. A year later, Seizure of power. The Media hated him after that.

Gun registration has always been a Lib’s dream, ever since the early 1960s.

I am fond of quoting Lincoln. We now have two Americas. "In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand." It will not fall. One side or the other will win.

Statism vs. freedom.

"Human rights" permitted us by a government vs. inalienable rights given us by our Creator.

This most definitely is it.. one of them.

It may be far worse than we think. Check THIS out. Here's an excerpt:

RB: Okay, but I’m not going to give it to you in baby steps. Big boy steps. This is what I am hearing. Life for the average American is going to change significantly, and not the change people expect. First, DHS is preparing to work with police departments and the TSA to respond to civil uprisings that will happen when there is a financial panic. And there will be one, maybe as early as this spring, when the dollar won’t get you a gumball. I’m not sure what the catalyst will be, but I’ve heard rumblings about a derivatives crisis as well as an oil embargo. I don’t know, that’s not my department. But something is going to happen to collapse the dollar, which has been in the works since the 1990s. Now if it does not happen as soon as this, it’s because there are people, real patriots, who are working to prevent this, so it’s a fluid dynamic. But that doesn’t change the preparations.

And the preparations are these: DHS is prepositioning assets in strategic areas near urban centers all across the country. Storage depots. Armories. And even detainment facilities, known as FEMA camps. FEMA does not even know that the facilities are earmarked for detainment by executive orders, at least not in the traditional sense they were intended. By the way, people drive by some of these armories every day without even giving them a second look. Commercial and business real estate across the country are being bought up or leased for storage purposes. Very low profile.

Anyway, I am hearing that the plan from on high is to let the chaos play out for a while, making ordinary citizens beg for troops to be deployed to restore order. but it’s all organized to make them appear as good guys. That’s when the real head knocking will take place. We’re talking travel restrictions, which should not be a problem because gas will be rationed or unavailable. The TSA will be in charge of travel, or at least be a big part of it. They will be commissioned, upgraded from their current status.

They, I mean Jarrett and Obama as well as a few others in government, are working to create a perfect storm too. This is being timed to coincide with new gun laws.

DH: New federal gun laws?

RB: Yes. Count on the criminalization to possess just about every gun you can think of. Not only restrictions, but actual criminalization of possessing a banned firearm. I heard this directly from the highest of my sources. Plans were made in the ‘90s but were withheld. Now, it’s a new day, a new time, and they are riding the wave of emotion from Sandy Hook, which, by the way as tragic as it was, well, it stinks to high heaven. I mean there are many things wrong there, and first reports are fast disappearing. The narrative is being changed. Look, there is something wrong with Sandy Hook, but if you write it, you’ll be called a kook or worse.

DH: Sure

RB: But Sandy Hook, there’s something very wrong there. But I am hearing that won’t be the final straw. There will be another if they think it’s necessary.

DH: Another shooting?

RB: Yes.

DH: That would mean they are at least complicit.

RB: Well, that’s one way of looking at it.

DH: Are they? Were they?

RB: Do your own research. Nothing I say, short of bringing you photographs and documents will convince anyone, and even then, it’s like [DELETED] in the wind.

DH: So…

RB: So what I’m telling you is that DHS, the TSA and certain, but not all, law enforcement agencies are going to be elbow deep in riot control in response to an economic incident. At the same time or close to it, gun confiscation will start. It will start on a voluntary basis using federal registration forms, then an amnesty, then the kicking-in of doors start.

Before or at the same time, you know all the talk of lists, you know, the red and blue lists that everyone made fun of? Well they exist, although I don’t know about their colors. But there are lists of political dissidents maintained by DHS. Names are coordinated with the executive branch, but you know what? They did not start with Obama. They’ve been around in one form or another for years. The difference though is that today, they are much more organized. And I’ll tell you that the vocal opponents of the politics of the global elite, the bankers, and the opponents of anything standing in their way, well, they are on the top of the list of people to be handled.

DH: Handled?

RB: As the situations worsen, some might be given a chance to stop their vocal opposition. Some will, others won’t. I suppose they are on different lists. Others won’t have that chance. By that time, though, it will be chaos and people will be in full defensive mode. They will be hungry, real hunger like we’ve never experienced before. They will use our hunger as leverage. They will use medical care as leverage.

The courts can take a stab at it and backstab the American Citizen and deprive them of their rights as they did with the Affordable Care Act, but ultimately this issue and the bravado and sheer arrogance with which Senator Feinstein and her ilk thinks they can implement defacto confiscation will ultimately result in outright revolution if pushed to the limit.

...........................................................

You can die, if you stand alone. Not a very pretty picture.

We must form quick alliances and stand together,or we will surely all die separately.

The thing the Government has going for them is that they are already organized. If we hope to win we must organize.

Will the cops do the job for Nancy and her gun grabbers?? I have no doubt they will, unless they face numbers. Alone we are dead ducks.As they face a large group they will think twice. They will have to use the military. Will the military do their dirty work? That is another question, and a risk.they might not want to face that risk.

The idea isn’t to collect the guns, the idea is to make 80 million of their political opponents “arrestable” at any time on a whim

"At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?-- Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!--All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."
~Abraham Lincoln, Address Before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois, January 27, 1838
