I posted this elsewhere, but I like it, so here it is. All of my stuff you feel has merit, please feel free to repost or clip anything I write, with or w/o attribution, I could not care any less about that. If my words are ammo, Fire for effect.
Here it is.
Stick to your guns, no matter what.
If they come to take them by force, they have declared war on the Constitution, and on you. At that point, war is joined, just as it was on another big gun confiscation raid on April 19, 1775. If it was legal in 2012, its legal in 2013 and it will be forever. If they say otherwise, they are liars and traitors and oath breakers and domestic enemies.
If you are disarmed and led away in cuffs, are you so sure youll be bailed out? And not taken to a new place with new rules?
Every survivor of every genocide says the same: when they come to take your guns, shoot them. Make them work for it, and THEIR system is overwhelmed, because they dont have 20 million FLEAs to do armed battles all over the country, instead of nice polite arrest raids like those that that Glen Ghandi Beck envisions, with the NRA lawyers throwing your bail and suing the pants off the .gov.
Its like the Solzhenitzn paragraph how we burned later in the camps because they didnt resist the GRU/KGB in the lobbies and stairwells with axes and knives.
Entire divisions of Russian troops hiked home from WW1 in 1917/18, carrying their rifles and swords and other sidearms. Very early on, Lenin decreed that public safety demanded they all be turned in, under penalty of death. And so they were disarmed, but not the Party members! Then came the purges, the Great Terror, the gulags, and tens of millions of dead. So well preserved was the fiction, that most Russians, when arrested, thought, Gee, there must be some mistake. I havent done anything wrong. Theyll let me go in a few hours. (Wrong anwer.)
If you give up your arms, you are placing your entire trust in the permanent future benevolence of the U.S. govt. This trust is invariably fatal. The German gun registration laws and limits on military weapons (then, Mausers etc) were put in in the 1920s Weimar Republic,years before Hitler.
They were all common sense and reasonable gun control laws, Im sure todays liberals would agree 100%. Then Hitler comes along, and uses the list to first disarm, and then ghetto-ize or deport and finally gas the Jews and others, killing millions.
Genocide, using the common sense gun registration lists to locate their most dangerous enemies. But first, they just come to pick up the weapons. No trouble, foks! They come for the mass arrests later, when the people are disarmed.
Millions of Polish Jews were rounded up this way, when the German police only needed a 1-10 ratio to thier victims. 100 German military police, 4-fs in their forties, bottom of the barrel conscripts, would round up and murder a town of a thousand. Force them to gather, then march groups at gunpoint into the woods for execution. A 1-10 ratio means the killer police are not worried at all. The victims were all disarmed. If they were armed, every village would requre a major military effort.
Im sorry, I do NOT trust that our .gov wont turn as mean as the old USSR to its class enemies, the MSMs duly appointed scapegoats, us white racist tea-party terrorists, the bitter clingers.
Folks, they perceive that we are reactionary forces not only standing in the way of social progress and liberal utopia, we are actively blocking it. That makes us pure Evil, since their plan for utopia is pure Good. That means they will come to feel totally justified in seeking a final solution to the bitter clinger question.
And once their mortal enemies (thats us) are disarmed and helpless the temptation grows to simply do away with them. Bill Ayers thought they would need to murder 10% of the population to achieve their utopia.
As it was with the Turkish Armenians, German Jews, Russian Kulaks, Chinese, Ugandans, Guatemalens, Cambodians, Cubans, Rwandans, and on and on, historys lesson is clear:
STICK TO YOUR GUNS!
Travis, I’ve seen it in several of your posts in other articles, but I thought it needed it’s own home.
I don’t disagree with anything you said. The leftists would kill us in a heart beat if they thought they could get away with it. They hate us and subjugating us is their end game. Consider that before you register your firearms with them.
I see no reason one should not be prepared to shoot.The 2nd amendment and the constitution is enforceable by ordinary citizes.
However, it would indeed be wise to organize committees of safety in evry County across America.
The war has already begun:
I’m flattered, but it wasn’t me saying it. The article is by Matt Bracken, aka Travis McGee, as all of us here at FR know.
I too believe that the assault gun is merely a way for the Obama regime to get it’s foot in the door to ban one class of weapon before moving on to banning all guns per the usual government incrementalism method. Funny that I just went to a seminar about the Constitution which laid out all of events and history which led up to it starting all the way back in the 9th century in England due to the people living under extreme tyranny where they would be mutilated and killed if they did not pay taxes or bow to the kings rule. There is no doubt the founding fathers thought long and hard drafting The Constitution borrowing concepts from the experiences of their ancestors who had suffered severely under tyrannical rule. The instructor made it clear using specific examples that our children are not being taught the truth about our history and the suffering that the people had under tyranny and the concept that man will continue to make the same mistakes over and over again no matter what the time period because of his very nature that will never change as long as he doesn’t heed the mistakes and patterns that will reoccur because of it. She also pointed ou that in every instance where the citizens were disarmed, tyranny and oppression followed.
Now I know this is no news to FRpers but it was to many of the teenagers and young adults at the seminar. I think The true story of The Constitution should be taught on liberal college campuses everywhere...:)
the Swiss don’t have our “gang” problem however. That “gang” problem is really the elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about in this debate on guns and violence. But I don’t see how you can have an honest debate about guns and violence without discussing “gang” violence.
Thanks. Justice is most efficiently served by the intended victim turning the force on the anti-life, criminal/thug/totalitarian whenever possible. Witness history. Many collective failures. Witness current events. Many individual successes. Life, liberty and its necessary corollary...the ability to defend it.
Prepare. Persevere. BANG-TO-THE-TOP!
As I've stated in the past and even used it as a tagline for several months: "Gun control? It's the OBOTS who are filling up prisons for violent crimes, not the Tea Party."
Look at the gun free democrat political strongholds if you want to see where the violent gun crimes are taking place. These urban "law and order free zones" are created, funded and maintained by Obama's like minded comrades which you and I help maintain with our tax dollars.
We won’t have a “gang problem” either, after we blow them away.
Special Thanks to Pookie18 Todays Toons
The "Marxist/Communists are masters of the first two (propaganda and stealing elections.) They generally refuse to participate in the third, and can't wait to exercise the fourth as soon as law abiding citizens are disarmed.
Guess those good folks at Ruby Ridge missed the memo.
The take over started some time ago but is now getting into second or third gear and rapidly accelerating.
If we put our trust in government, what could go wrong? I am confident that Obama would protect each and every American citizen with the same enthusiasm and brilliance that he brought to the protection of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, and the results of disarming ourselves would be no worse than the results of disarming the consulate guards in Benghazi.
I have heard it said on other forums and believe there will come a time when people start registering the names and addresses of LEO’s. They need to lay their head on a pillow each night.
This is not a threat of any form; rather, it is stating the cold, hard truths. People are not going to walk gently into the good night and allow the Constitution to get trampled. As Andrew Napolitano stated, the 2A is the right to shoot tyrants, not deer.
People are waking up to this.
Stick to your guns--no matter what!
