Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Nothing raises the hackles of dictators, tyrants, and oligarchs more than the idea of a substantially armed citizenry.
Disarming present or potential opposition has been the fundamental game plan of murderous rulers since Ancient Egypt and Rome.
From the more complex mass murderers like Adolf Hitler, and Mao, to tinpot lunatics like Idi Amin, the key to seizing power, and then maintaining it, has always been a disarmed opposition.
It is sadly ironic that the Founders of this nation had a better grasp of the concept “never again” than most modern-day Jews, along with their non-Jewish Liberal ilk. The Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and our Bill of Rights were all fueled by the then living memory of a relative punk in the annals of world tyranny: King George III.
However, the Founders understood “never again” within the context of our newfound liberty. And they did something about it: The Second Amendment.
It doesn’t take a degree in international affairs to realize that America is hated, and, more specifically envied, by most of the rest of the world. All around the globe, national leaders and their lapdog media (and therefore most of their gerbil citizenry) mock us as “cowboys” and “Rambos”.
The late, great Jeff Cooper, the guru of modern firearms technique, coined the word “hoplophobe” to describe this kind of gun hater and gun fearer:
“Well, we know what motivates the hoplophobe. He simply envies the man who can cope where he, the hoplophobe, cannot. A skilled, armed man lives on a plane of security and contentment different from that of others. This is not egalitarian! The man who cannot cut it, envies, fears and sometimes hates the man who can. This is all very clear, it is just a pity that so many people choose to hide their perfidious motivation behind what they claim to be crime control.”
George Bush, no real friend of gun rights when push came to shove, said it right: “They hate our freedom.” He was referring to Islamic fanatics, but the fact is that most of the world’s elite, including the Western World, truly do hate us for our freedom to keep and bear arms. It is a hatred inflamed by envy, and there is perhaps no worse kind.
The armed American citizenry sticks in the craw of the globalist oligarchs who would, in an instant, bring their “New World Order” to bear upon our most treasured liberties.
They MUST destroy our Second Amendment. And following that, our entire Bill of Rights. These illuminated examples of self-determination must be crushed lifeless and utterly erased from human consciousness before the Big Brothers (and now Big Sisters) of the world can have their way.
Enter the United Nations, a body of such laughable impotency, corruption, and venal stupidity that we’ve been lulled asleep at our guard posts. And along with these buffoons comes one of the most sinister words in the modern-day English language: Treaty.
Long ago George Washington warned us of the pitfalls:
“The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible. So far as we have already formed engagements, let them be fulfilled with perfect good faith. Here let us stop.”
And now, something so bizarre, so completely un-American, and so deeply sinister is slithering towards our shores in the form of what? An insidious and duplicitous “gun control” treaty.
“Oh! We won’t let that happen”, say our spineless politicians. Yeah right, just like they didn’t let the invasion of America by 20 million illegal aliens happen.
