USA --(Ammoland.com)- How many Citizens is the government willing to kill in the push for firearms disarmament?
As debate continues around the Country and in the Capitol about new and draconian gun control laws there is a glaring, as yet unaddressed question that those in Congress and the Pro Gun Control side seem incapable of even considering and the media hasn’t even begun to ask.
Just how many Citizens, having committed no crime other then peaceful non compliance with an Unconstitutional and treasonous gun control scheme are the gun grabbers willing to kill in furtherance of their agenda?
NY State Rep Jerry Nadler, during an interview about the proposed Feinstein / Cuomo mandatory buyback scheme was quoted as saying he thought the very idea was “insane“.
Which itself is damning evidence that those in favor of gun control, be they politicians or the media are arrogantly dismissive of, and not even considering the possibility of resistance to their plans.
And not considering the very real possibilities of defensive violence against oppressive government is a sure sign that people like Adler, Feinstein, Lautenberg, McCarthy and their followers are completely unfit to hold positions of high Office.
It shows they are so convinced of their power, that the idea of someone not complying with their edicts is alien to them. It reveals they are so hopelessly out of touch with the American people that they have either no idea how people really feel or simply don’t care and will happily enact whatever laws they feel like, and if a few million people die as a result? Oh well. No rational and sane person, especially not someone that views themselves as a “leader” would so crassly dismiss even the most unlikely of unintended consequences to their actions.
The fact of the matter is, there are in fact millions of Americans who will not comply with ANY new gun control laws and are willing to risk and if necessary, sacrifice their lives defending themselves from oppressive aggression at the hands of the State.
Feinstein, Bloomberg, Lautenberg, and the rest are coward, plain and simple. No one sees them offering to give up their 24/7/365 security details (armed with actual “assault weapons” , while they demand the “little people” be disarmed.) That’s what a true leader does, sets the example with their own conduct and choices as an example for others to emulate.
You wont see Rham Emmanuel, Barbara Boxer, Sheila Jackson Lee or any of the leaders of the Anti Gun Side going door to door to demand Citizens turn in their firearms. No, they’ll stay safely ensconced behind their walls, with their armed security guards and send others to do their dirty work.
For all their talk about “wanting to save lives” , those at every level of the Gun control movement are quite happy to sacrifice however many lives it takes, on both sides of the issue, on the altar of their ideology.
There is nothing immoral about a Citizen defending themselves, with force if necessary, from the aggressive actions of the State.
After being arrested and sent to the gulag for being a “political dissident” Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn had this to say about how the prisoners regretted not fighting back against the Police State :
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
Social media of all types has been abuzz since word first leaked about the Feinstein /Cuomo confiscation plan and only increased in recent days as word got out over the plans for ending the Second Amendment in Illinois, NY State, Iowa and others, of people publicly declaring that they will not comply and will fight if it comes to that.
Things will not end well if Congressional Leaders and others refuse to acknowledge and do not consider and heed these warnings and take them seriously.
During the Revolutionary War, estimates from historical records show that only 3% of the population of the Colonies supported the patriots in their fight against tyrannical rule by Britain.
If only 3% of the 80 million gun owners in the United States stand up and fight back, that is greater then the total of every member of Law Enforcement and the Military combined. And a significant percentage of the Law Enforcement and Military Communities will simply refuse to folllow orders such as confiscating weapons, searching properties without probable cause and a warrant or firing on Citizens whose only desire is to be left alone and have their rights respected.
So the percentage of manpower available to the Government to carry out their plot versus the number of Citizens willing to fight them is even more lopsided in the Citizens favor.
The government actively planned for, assaulted and eventually assassinated those they wanted to make an example of at Ruby Ridge, and Waco Texas, and make no mistake, particularly with regard to Waco and the Branch Dravidians , that was a deliberate, “made for TV” , attack, the State showing the people live and in full color and stereo sound for days, exactly how far they were willing to go, and what they were willing to do, including the murder of children, to send a message to any who would dare resist the forces of Government in the future.
If cooler heads in Congress don’t prevail and put a decisive stop to the evolving plot to disarm Americans who have committed no crimes, because of the isolated actions of a a handful of deranged criminal’s, things are going to reach a point of no return, and there will be enormous amounts of bloodshed on both sides, while those that deliberately set out to engineer and set in motion that violence sit back with a smug smile of satisfaction.
