Let’s just call it “The Restoration”, and leave it at that.

Good Call! "The Restoration" it will be.

So the bigger question is to wonder what EO’s they will attempt and how we begin to combat them. Thoughts anyone?

How can they ever know which of the 300 million are the estimated 80 million gun owners - and which ones have which of the 170 million firearms?

"Form 4473."

Maybe we've all sold our firearms to other people.

No? Sure we did - private sale - no reciept. None required.

I'm from MA so I'm used to a different set of rules....such as Diane Feinstein is pushing for.

Private sales are fine but a firearm needs to be registered. If it isn't, you face 1 year in prison mandatory if found in possession of such. Registration must be transferred from 1 party to the other via form FA-10 which is kept on file with the Firearms Safety Bureau.

All of this crap and soooo much more is thanks to Mitt Romney.

Police? Who do you think is the leading edge of confiscation? The time is nigh for all those skin-headed, bloused booted, heavy badged thugs to make a choice.

Do they support and enforce any "law" that Chicago hood cares to sign, or the Constitution? We are living in historic times.

Vice President Joe Biden, while addressing representatives of gun safety and gun violence victims' groups, says President Obama could use "executive orders" to enact gun control measures.

Actually, he can't.

It's long past time for CW2. The only way we'll get our country back is by using bullets. You can't vote it out because half of this country likes it the way it is and a quarter of it just doesn't give a damn.

Hey, doug; I too voted for Romney but reluctantly.

Here’s why: at post #162, I believe in this instance of the 2nd Amendment, Obama v. Romney made little to no difference.

Romney would be just as dedicated a gun-grabber as Obama.

The rhetoric being communicated by this administration, combined now with such reckless statements coming from Biden and other politicians, is setting in motion a dangerous course of action that government was never intended or allowed to complicate under our Constitution. The semi-automatic rifle in any configuration is the same weapon protected by the 2nd amendment as was the musket carried by every citizen, the militia, and the Continental Army when it was ratified. Imagine if at the end of the Revolutionary war the Congress had not ratified the 2nd amendment in the Bill of Rights and attempted to have the Continental Army disarm the citizens. The nation would have ended quickly and or the Army would have disbanded and the States would still be a confederation and not a nation. For the entire history of our nation up through WWII the common American was better armed and more equipped than the standing military when it came to infantry rifles. There is no difference today when you talk about attempting to regulate or confiscate AR-15’s or any other type of semi-automatic rifle or ray gun of the future for that matter. So, what was the difference in 1776? It was the people and their faith, and their morals, and their quest for liberty and defense of freedom and defiance of tyranny. We now have a populace that does not understand those values nor share those qualities and wants to regulate every single aspect of our lives from conception to the grave to a large measure in large cities, but not the majority yet across the whole nation.

So now, the autocratic tyrants wish to disarm those of us who will not go quietly into the night as we still believe in and are willing to sacrifice and die to preserve the Constitution and rule of law founded upon in the beginning of America. Back in the beginning it was just a handful, maybe less than 10% that really risked anything to fight the British. What was the difference in 1770? The civilian population made a stand and organized starting from Concord and Lexington and gave the fledgling Congress time to organize an army. This stopped the British from disarming the people and gave time to organize a standing army. So if a tyrannical government in 2013 without first amending the Constitution to abolish the 2nd amendment, and doing so without States consent, attempts to defy our laws and confiscate weapons, what are the citizens to do?

The answer is to organize as we did in in 1770. To band together with a pledge to stand together or hang alone. In 2013 this would require gun friendly states to pass legislation preventing the federal government from taking civilian semi-auto rifles. In these states you could set up organizations for civilians to join as likeminded individuals with pledges to come to the aid of anyone the federal government attempted to disarm. Some states have anti militia laws attempting to prevent free men from banding together. You could form groups that share contact information that link up communication with other groups that pledge to up hold and defend the Constitution and to come to the aid of anyone threatened by confiscation. There are peaceful ways to set up and organize without breaking existing state laws banning militias in order to defend the ownership of arms protected by the 2nd amendment. It is time for our own rhetoric to be heard.

CCWs in Ga don’t need NICS

As for an FFL, personally I don’t want one because it gives the ATF right to inspect the premises/books IIRC.

But you are right. There is a lot. The main thing is to
Ignore outright turn in orders though.

Fast and Furious-what a joke. Obama and Holder are guilty in participating in the murders of the American and the Mexicans that were killed because those 2 sent guns for that purpose. The same thing was probably going on in Benghazi. When those two are held accountable and the Republicans gets some gonads and equate the two, then we can talk.

You paint such a rosy picture with your well stated words.

We are in trouble and the worse it gets, the worse it gets. There doesn’t seem to be any Cavalry headed our way and relief is not in sight. There will be a breaking point, of that I am certain. This attack on the American People must stop, it just can’t continue without serious, perhaps even deadly repercussions.

Obama, his tribe and the democrats have split America into so many pieces that I am unsure if it is even possible to put it back together again.

What has taken over 230 years to build, with the blood, tears, sweat and lives of patriots, Obama has been able to bring to almost certain destruction in only 4 years.

We were once a great nation that worked together, but we have been transformed into separate groups that now hate and work against each other.

I am late to respond to your post because I have spent most of today shopping and buying last minute gun stuff over the internet.

I had figured that at my age, 64, I would be spending my money on fun things, not on ‘all out’ preparation for the uncertainty and unknowable.

I am a peaceful guy that respects the sanctity of life and I am too old to be much of a warrior, yet I keep thinking that I would have rather our enemies had come in uniform...

***Where did all the ‘good news’ go? Sad....

They can put forth an executive order to ban the law of gravity too.

What is being proposed by these lib fascists is AN INTOLERABLE ACT; the equivalent of banning anyone from criticizing government in speech or written word, unless “registered” after the proper 6 month background check, $200 tax stamp, local county judge sign off and no passing your argument to any 3rd party and will be erased from the record once you die.

This infringement on 1st amendment would never be accepted by majority of Americans, which people need to understand the importance of the 2nd as it provides teeth to liberty and all our unalienable God given rights. Once it’s down, we’ll lose all the other rights eventually.

Ignore all unconstitutional edicts from the regime, do so openly flagrantly with sh$t eating grins until they decide to start killing innocents, at which point just war is authorized, the rubicon’s been crossed with no other recourse. That starts the doctrine of 100 hundred heads:

(from the militia leader who broke Fast n Furious)

http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/2009/10/mathematics-of-liberty-one-hundred.html

http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/2013/01/2013-resist-or-disarm-start-deciding.html

This could be BEST CASE SCENARIO — purge of the leadership, planners, enablers and MAYBE this would calm tyrannical urges down....because ruling class don’t care how many feds, police they lose but a narcissistic tyrant’s own mortality in the mix changes things...

...or it can dissolve into a chaotic bloody civil war of different factions and allegiances. That’s the problem with the Obots — I said it a few years ago, are you idiots ready to die for your Kenyan idol? Some of the law enforcement will follow orders, others won’t. Some will be apathetic or clueless.

If it comes to our Constitutional rights having to be enforced, then let it be on ruling tyrants who have committed treason and violated their oaths. There are calls on blogs, comment sections for wiping out families, etc. Civilians, police collateral damage don’t win the public support in a guerrilla war. My opinion is this would be a shadow war in urban locale like this blog predicts:

“What will be the likely model of american insurrection, if gun control doesn’t go well?”

http://wintersoldier2008.typepad.com/summer_patriot_winter_sol/2012/12/what-will-be-the-likely-model-of-american-insurrection-if-gun-control-doesnt-go-well.html

So the regime takes losses, how will regime respond? Expect clampdowns, further security nets dropping certain locations or martial law, drones, other “emergency” edicts or EO’s. Possible triggers to social unrest from underclass, all kinds of scenarios, in other words - SHTF. Which we all knew was coming anyway with unstable economy.

Another tidbit is how many will keep their oaths in the current administration, in all the security services, etc and will act in that regard, even by disseminating intel on the regime or other subversive actions...

Four years ago, regarding our new Che in the White House, I figured:

First: Guns. (2nd Amendment)

Second: Talk Radio and Internet. (1st Amendment)

It's happening folks. Wake up and smell the Cuban Cafe Serrano.

Weapon up. Arm up. Ammo up. (While still legal in your state or locality). The sacred blood of our founding fathers, our revolutionary war patriots, cannot have been spilled for nothing. They will not prevail. There are millions of us, we are pissed off, and we are NOT going to take it. They know this and they FEAR this. I have read their private writings. This is the single biggest fear they have about the American Populace. That they are already heavily armed. Too bad they wrote that crap, not thinking any outsiders would read it. I know, man, where their "heads are" (waxing 1960s here).
