    The New American ^ | 13 December 2016 | Michael Tennant
    To Venezuelan socialists, observed Loyola University Maryland economics professor Thomas DiLorenzo, nothing says Merry Christmas more than armed government goons showing up at your business and ordering you around. That is, in fact, precisely what is happening in that oil-rich but increasingly poverty-stricken nation. Having driven his country into penury and hyperinflation by continuing the policies of late president Hugo Chavez, President Nicolas Maduro is now forcing stores to have Christmas sales they cannot afford and even confiscating millions of toys from their distributor so Maduro can play Santa Claus by handing them out to poor children.

    Accused Florida airport gunman Esteban Santiago had his guns seized twice by authorities before the Jan. 6 massacre, including a reported confiscation four years ago in Puerto Rico but on both occasions investigations were closed and Santiagos guns were returned to him. Santiago, 26, had a gun or guns taken by Penuelas police in Puerto Rico more than four years ago, The Florida Sun-Sentinel reported on Friday, though the reason for the action wasnt immediately clear. It had to be some kind of complaint, police press officer Edward Ramirez said.

    Suppose you, as a good neighbor, noticed an imbalance between a couple of families down the street. The Smiths husband and wife, no kids, yet they have two cars. Then there is the Jones family husband and wife, five kids and no car. A difficult life the Joneses have, hard to get to work or to the store, difficult to get the kids to school. You would like to help, because you are a kind, compassionate and merciful individual, but you only have one car for yourself, your wife and three kids. You decide one day to talk...

    Hawaiis new law requires current and future gun owners to register in the FBIs Rap Back system. The FBI calls it their Next Generation Identification Program, which is currently used to track the actions of people who are part of ongoing criminal investigations. If someone enrolled in the database has contact with law enforcement, an alert is issued through the FBI. Now the program will be used to track the actions of all law-abiding gun owners in Hawaiiand not just residents. SB 2954 requires law enforcement to request a Rap Back on anyone requesting a firearm license or registering a...

    President Obama spoke at a town hall moderated by PBS Wednesday night while still in Elkhart, Indiana. The subject of gun control came up and the president assured that neither he nor any other Democrat is trying to take away America's guns. An audience member stood up and posed the following question: "Why do you and Hillary want to control and restrict and limit gun manufacturers, gun owners and responsible use of guns and ammunition to the rest of us -- the good guys -- instead of holding the bad guys accountable for their actions?" The man continued, using Obama's...

    Guillermo Espinoza's efforts to retrieve $19,894 seized by Arkansas State Police were brought to an abrupt halt by Judge Chris Williams. State prosecutors asked that the money be returned to Espinoza since no criminal charges were being pursued against him. Williams rejected this request on the grounds that Espinoza had missed the 10-day deadline for filing the papers to initiate restitution. As Williams sees it, "the rules on civil forfeiture are clearly spelled out in statute. Whether or not Mr. Espinoza was or wasn't engaged in any illegal activity is irrelevant. Arkansas law gives the government the right to seize...

    On May 9 less than two years since universal background checks were hoisted onto the backs of law-abiding citizens in Washington state Gabby Giffords was in the state campaigning for special protective orders that will allow firearm confiscation. The orders Extreme Risk Protection Orders would be similar to Californias Gun Violence Restraining Orders, inasmuch as they would allow family or household members to petition a judge to order the temporary confiscation of firearms from another family member or person living in the household.

    A reprise on a March 2013 interview of John Lott and his discussion with Obama on gun control. "I don't believe people should be able to own guns," Obama told Lott one day at the University of Chicago Law School. Lott: "Barack Obama is the most anti-gun president ever. That claim is based not on my own interactions with him back in the 1990's but on his own public record over many years."

    It used to be that the gun grabbers desperately attempted to keep a thin veneer of plausible deniability on their ultimate goal of Confiscation. After all, you can’t very well sucker people into the government controlling their private property with Intergalactic Background Checks and registration if it’s known that those are but a pretext for confiscation later on. But now out of frustration at the lack of ‘progress’ in destroying out rights they have dropped the mask and are now calling for full on repeal of the second amendment, gun bans and outright confiscation. To be sure they still try...

    Members of the Lexington Militia, Massachusetts Colony, lined up in formation on the town green and waited. When the British Regulars marched into town and saw them they rushed over and squared off facing them, ready for a fight. No one knows who fired the first shot. It was the beginning of a very long day, the first day of our American Revolution, April 19, 1775. To what extent revolution is in the air today is a matter of perspective. But the parallel here, with the possibility of armed clashes, cannot be missed. Resistance to the gun registration laws of...

    Nonsensical Gun Control is the kind that wants to disarm you just when you need it most. It goes beyond nonsensical really. It goes all the way to tyrannical, murderous, and conspiratorial. Former inmate of Dachau, Theodore Haas, was asked by Aaron Zelman, founder, ‘Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership’ “Did the camp inmates ever bring up the topic, “If only we were armed before, we would not be here now”?” Hass responded: “Many, many times. Before Adolph Hitler came to power, there was a black market in firearms, but the German people had been so conditioned to be...

    Despite France's draconian gun laws, terrorists have once again proven that only good people obey bad laws, and they do so to their own detriment. It is important to realize that the best security practices, people, and technology governments have to offer could not thwart the ISIS attacks in Paris. Nor will these practices, institutions, and technologies thwart the next attack. [..] Thankfully, the reality of these attacks is that they can be deterred, disrupted, and even defeated by properly trained and well-armed civilian populous. A handful of properly trained civilians carrying concealed weapons in the Bataclan Theatre could have...

    More modern samizdat art from the new media. This poster succinctly portrays the disarmist strategy of disarmament by a thousand cuts, or incremental confiscation. The strategy worked in England and Wales (and one could argue, medieval Japan), but it is not working in the United States. The premise is to make guns costly and difficult or impossible to use without severe legal impediments. This is supposed to lead to reduced levels of gun ownership. When gun ownership drops to the point where it becomes politically ineffective, then wide scale confiscation becomes possible. Until that point, incremental confiscation is the...

    In days of yore the Lie was 'No one is talking about Confiscation', but something has changed as of late. Such talk is now common amongst the national Socialist elite despite the lack of a shooting being prevalent in the media. It is axiomatic that one does not call for confiscation until its foundational steps are in place: Intergalactic Background Checks and Registration. The reason should be clear to everyone, people need to be fooled into registering their firearms with the solemn promise that it won't lead to confiscation. This was the case in the UK for example, were the...

    On November 2, The Daily Beast pointed to recent statements from President Obama and Hillary Clinton regarding the implementation of Australian-style gun confiscation and suggested “civil war could erupt on American soil” if any administration actually tried to confiscate privately owned firearms. The Daily Beast theoretically agreed that “confiscation on a massive scale” may be “the only way to solve American gun violence,” but they pointed out that it was not realistic and suggested Hillary risks causing irreparable divisions by talking about confiscation then mocking gun owners as conspiracy theorists waiting for “black helicopters” to come take their guns away....
