The Great American Gun Grab of 2019

Opinion

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- We've been right about this all along. We saw this coming and knew it was inevitable. We spoke about it, wrote about and we talked about it to anyone who would listen.

They said we were crazy, whacko gun nuts and insisted that “no one is coming for your guns.” They called us paranoid and claimed we were fearmongering to raise money and scare Americans into believing they were coming door to door to confiscate our firearms. They called us liars.

It turns out we were right.

The Great American Gun Grab as I'm calling it here is well underway.

Fueled by a radical, leftist, dominant media and pushing an incredibly and increasingly anti-gun narrative, rights-hating politicians are openely campaigning on a socialist platform. They are also receiving unlimited coverage and shoving an alarmingly unAmerican plan for America right down our throats. There seems to be no end in sight to the relentlessly negative coverage, and while it's never been this bad before, it's going to get worse.

Foreigners and many Americans alike are falling for this intentional and hysterical media portrayal of a nation awash in blood. An apocalyptic tale of 320 million citizens in such danger of being shot that we can't go to a movie theatre, school, restaurant, concert, festival, shopping or walk down the street without fear of being murdered in cold blood according to dopey leftist and rabid gun-hater, Alyssa Milano, for example.

The problem? That's complete and total fabricated bullshit.

Millions of us go to movie theatres, schools, restaurants, concerts, festivals, shopping or out for a walk, every day in America, safely, without being shot to death. Millions upon millions upon millions of us. Statistics that prove me right be damned. None of it matters. The fact that you stand a better chance of being mowed down by a speeding ice cream truck driven by a cross-dressing clown on his way to a cross-dressing clown ice cream truck driver convention doesn't matter. The fact that thousands of Americans have used a gun in the last couple of days to save a life doesn't matter. None of it fits their narrative.

How mighty is this avalanche, this unrelenting bombardment of negative coverage and what eventual effect may it have on our freedoms and our right to bear arms?

Consider this: Decade after decade goes by that Democrat politicians run cities in decay all across the nation. Decay powered by overlapping generations of failed policies that lead to hopelessness, despair, poverty, gang violence, drugs, and yes, “violence with guns.” The numbers are staggering in Chicago alone and year after year, those very citizens who suffer under the dismal conditions of Democrat policies in those cities in decay, continue to vote for more of the same.

Why? Because of what they see, hear and read, day in and day out, that reinforces what they’ve been told by politicians, slanted local and mainstream media, all driving the same narrative, that paints a picture in contrast to reality. They've bought a bill of goods. Mired in the misery created by the people they've placed in power for decades, they blame the other guy. They've swallowed the proverbial “Kool-Aide,” the metaphorical reference to the bombardment of coverage that tells them it's the other guy's fault. To those of us on the outside of the inner-city blight, we shake our heads in disbelief. Meanwhile, the damage is done as generation after generation goes by. The sad fact is that we will not live long enough to see, for example, Chicago “fixed.” Or Detroit, or Baltimore, etc. Yes, the damage is done.

Does the same fate await our right to bear arms? Can enough people drink the Kool-Aide that their efforts succeed?

You're not going to like this answer but yes, it very well could. The relentless pounding in the media, the onslaught of hatred from the Socialists (formerly known as Democrats), is a blueprint years in the making that aims to end civilian gun ownership in this country. The attack is well underway and shows no signs of relenting, in fact, just the opposite.

Right now, the other side is trying to finish us off. Think of the German soldier in Saving Private Ryan gently plunging the knife through the heart of one of our guys, slowly but surely silencing his enemy. They believe they have us down and that we will comply.

The only question left now is, will we?

The gun grab is underway. No one has retaliated yet, so can we really expect them to? Who is the enemy? If cops show up to your house to red flag your weapons away will you shoot them? Are we to no longer trust law enforcement? If an offensive were to be launched who would the target be? A single person shoots a few cops, they’ll send more and eventually overtake him. Then what? Nothing. It will happen when you are alone, or not even home. It will happen while everyone is at work. We aren’t citizens, we are subjects.… Read more »

@Him, don’t get your hair all on fire. Nothing is lost. Did anyone come to your house, today, to take away your firearms? There is all kinds of things that you can do. With the elections coming up, you have a little more juice than usual. So, use it.

There are enough instances where states have banned guns and the citizens were told to turn them in. Most did not turn them in which infuriorates the banners. Keep up the good work. Beto wouldn’t last a day of the presidency with his “mandatory buybacks”. He might as well jump into the Roi Grand with his cement boots on. On second thought, he should anyway because there is no chance of him winning.

Will “we”? I don’t know about “we”, but as for me…GIVE ME MY LIBERTY or I WILL GIVE YOU YOUR DEATH should be our rallying cry. Red coat law enforcers will become fair game from an unorganized militia that will start to become well organized if they start passing “laws” i.e.decrees from their ivory towers. WE WILL NOT COMPLY. Many of us have already cached weapons and ammunition “just in case” and will dig them out and go on the offensive if they continue their bullshit and ban anything that is currently available to us. So KMA, FBI, CIA, KGB… Read more »

The phrase ‘the squeaky wheel gets the grease’ comes to mind here. The anti-gun crowd, funded by huge donors, and propelled by a biased MSM are convincing the general public that guns should be eliminated from our society. Of course that isn’t possible, but there are enough low info supporters to sway our legislators to ignore their oaths and trash our rights.

@joe, No, the anti civil rights crowd is not convincing the general public. A 1959 study indicated that 69 percent of the people poled thought that pistols were just murder weapons. Now, look at all the hand gun and multiple gun games and sports. Fun is the ultimate weapon.

“Millions of us go to movie theaters, schools, restaurants, concerts, festivals, shopping or out for a walk, every day in America, safely, without being shot to death.”

The rest of that quote should state: “All the while being surrounded by American Citizens exercising their Second Amendment Rights by carrying firearms for their personal safety, as well as for those around them.”

That would be considered settled law forever, if only it was in reference to some libtard agenda item.

Yes it seems inevitable they will try but you can also bet there will be MANY of us who refuse to turn them in and, more than that, will enter into “extreme negotiations” as to wither their arms, ammo, magazines etc. would ever be surrendered. When the Persians told the Spartans to lower their weapons, the reply was “Come and get them”. Again, in Texas in 1835 when the Mexicans said surrender your arms and cannon there was a flag with a rendition of a cannon on it along with the words “Come and take it”. Years ago, I took… Read more »

With respect to all others who’ve commented on here, your comment sums it up completely ! Nothing else should have to be said …unless some libtard wants to inject their half assed idealogical idea of nonsense ! I can’t see how anybody would think that taking a law abiding citizens weapons is going to stop any of this mayhem that occurs daily (the vast majority of which are liberal run states and cities) by criminals who by definition don’t follow the law. The last figure I heard was that there are over 20,000 gun laws on the books throughout the… Read more »

Excellent statement except for the part about Chris Kyle who was an invader of a foreign nation violating the rights and killing the people that were defending their homeland. FACT. “We” were disarming people in their country and Chris Kyle was part of the problem. PERIOD. And I don’t give a flying rats rear if you or anyone else have a problem with my view of Chris Kyle.

@Contagious Lying, Chris Kyle followed lawful orders; overwatched his fellow soldiers, and only killed people that were trying to kill Americans. Better on their soil than our. Your speaking ill of this truly courageous American lion reflects poorly on you.

And this is my complaint with the NRA & Wayne Lapierre. They should have been prepared for this. Indeed the NRA should have been on the offensive rather than playing metoo elites.

Even if the anti-gunners unconstitutionally suspend the 2nd Amendment and declare all guns must be turned in, THE ARMED CITIZEN STILL GETS A VOTE. WE CAN STILL VETO THEIR COMMUNIST AGENDA WITH LEAD. That’s why the 2nd Amendment was put there, after all. It aint got nothing to do with duck hunting!!

If they want a civil war 2.0 or 2nd American Revolution (take your pick), then let them try. Because that’s what they will get. Not a threat, but a promise, by We The People.

Not so anonymous. Stephen Decatur Miller may have originated the concept during a speech at Stateburg, South Carolina in September 1830. He said “There are three and only three ways to reform our Congressional legislation, familiarly called, the ballot box, the jury box and the cartridge box”. A version that is close to the modern forms was introduced by Frederick Douglass, an escaped slave who became an influential public figure in the Union States and Great Britain before the Civil War, and had a long and distinguished career after the war. In a speech delivered on 15 November 1867, Douglass… Read more »

The soap box has become illegal in many parts of the country without a “permit”. The voting box has become a total joke due to the ability of vote manipulation and all the dead people that vote, the jury box is ignored in the school system so the sheeple gladly convict violators of victimless crimes continually. The ammo box should have been used back in 1903 wen the Dick Act did away with the militias.

***THE ARMED CITIZEN STILL GETS A VOTE***
Actually, multiple votes, depending on magazine capacity.

I hope they are defeated by logic and votes, but if or when it becomes necessary to take up arms in defense of the Constitution, I will not shirk.
