Before you vehemently insist that it can and will never happen, I ask, “How much of what has happened would you have believed could happen just a few years ago?” Once you have allowed that reality to ruminate in your heart and mind you will see that what they plan might not be as far-fetched a possibility as most of us believe.
If you do not believe that the Democrats want your weapons you are not living in the present. THEY DO! They have openly and covertly declared the same. With those on the Left like Robert Frances ‘Beto’ O’Rourke when asked, “Are you proposing taking away their guns?” He responded, “Hell, yes, we’re going to take your AR-15s and Ak-47s.” What part of that do you not understand?
Robert Frances O’Rourke is not alone in his desire to confiscate and ban our privately owned firearms. He is joined by a cadre of Leftists including Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. I remind you of a proposal that Joe Biden has floated that he would require everyone who owns an AR-15 to register that weapon per the mandates of the National Firearms Act of 1934. In case you missed it, that would amount to a surcharge of $200 per AR-15 in your arsenal. What would be next?
According to the National Rifle Association’s estimate, there are at least 18 million AR-15s owned by Americans. I am convinced that is a low estimate but taking those numbers you quickly realize that this would amount to a new tax of $3.6 billion. If you are naïve enough to believe they would stop with the AR-15s you are walking with Alice in Wonderland.
Biden declared, before the election that if he was elected, he would enact legislation to once again ban “assault” weapons. That is a skewed definition and description of those scary looking firearms. There are those on the Left who truly believe that banning and confiscating all privately owned firearms would be the magic pill to cure the ills of crime and violence in America. They are devoid of reason and unable to consider facts. They, like Diane Feinstein and other Democrats, believe that if the lawful citizens did not have weapons the criminals would lay theirs down too. WHAT ARE THEY SMOKING OR DRINKING?
Biden has threatened to use the executive fiat to achieve his objective, if Congress does not act to rubber-stamp his proposal. Those of you who accused Trump of being an autocrat put that in your pipe and smoke it. It smacks of authoritarianism beyond belief and totally outside the constraints of the Constitution. But, then when, in recent memory, did the Constitution constrain the Leftists?
Biden has promised or threatened to re-enact the requirement that the Social Security Administration and the V.A. report to the federal background check anyone who has sought treatment for any mental or emotional issue including PTSD or Depression. Biden’s own website has revealed there is no firearm he is unwilling to target for confiscation. The Second Amendment is a threat to tyrants, and this would amount to tyranny that cannot be allowed to stand. He has vowed to use the full weight and force of federal agencies to achieve his agenda and objective.
The student of history knows the role that ‘gun control’ has played in the rise and dominion of Dictators and Dictatorships. The Left continues to elicit support for a virtual ‘police state’ in which the politically compliant and complicit would be safe but anyone else would be brutally punished. The agenda of the Leftists is designed to overthrow our American Society and replace it with a kind of Socialism that leads to Tyranny of epic proportions.
Overthrowing society is dirty work and they have made it clear the only way peace with them can be hoped for is by our compliance with their demands. If we fail to comply, they will burn our cities, strip us of our rights, incarcerate many who resist, and destroy lives, businesses, and churches in the process. That will push us to conflict and the Second Amendment will become the major target of the Tyrannical Leftists in power.
They know they cannot succeed in their agenda as long as American citizens have the right and ability to defend themselves. Their success depends upon stripping us of that ability and right. They must end all normal, non-communist views and rid society of constitutionalists and conservatives. They are also targeting Christians who believe in the Bible and stand for its morals, precepts, and principles.
The Founding Fathers insisted that the Second Amendment must be kept sacred. It was not designed to enable us to hunt game into perpetuity but because those men understood the dangers of a rogue and tyrannical government. They realized that if unethical authoritarians and immoral godless politicians gained control everyone would be endangered. Therefore, they sought to provide a defense mechanism that would keep us safe and cause the government to have second thoughts about a total takeover of our lives and society. The Left hates that view and is hell-bent to destroy it.
Defunding the police is part of the package. The weakening of the military and purging the ranks of those who value the Constitution and our Freedoms. An amazing statistic provided by the FBI in a report entitled “2018: Crime in the United States” broke down murder by the types of weapons used. Guess what was not at the top, not even close? That’s right, rifles, AR-15’s or AK-47s. Do you know what it was? It was knives! The FBI reported that there were 1,515 murders with “knives or cutting instruments” and 297 with “rifles.”
Handguns are the major weapon used in firearms deaths, not the so-called ‘assault rifles’ that the Left wants to ban. Why? Because the long gun would be more useful in a war than a pistol. At the beginning of America’s struggle for Freedom, one of the catalysts was the British attempt to ‘confiscate’ firearms. The Left wants to follow the path of King George III and strip us of our ability to defend ourselves. The so-called ‘military-style’ weapons are the term they use but it is a façade to hide their real intent. That is absolute tyrannical rule over us!
One more tidbit. November 9th was the 81st anniversary of the first day of Kristallnacht, also known as the “night of broken glass.” For nearly a week the Nazi Sturmabteilung paramilitary forces had carried out a pogrom against Jewish-owned businesses, synagogues, and properties across Germany and related territories. In that blitz, 267 synagogues and 7,000 businesses were damaged or destroyed and 30,000 Jewish men were incarcerated in concentration camps.
Hitler insisted that ‘gun confiscation’ was necessary because of the assignation of Nazi diplomat Ernst vom Rath by Herschel Grynszpan, a 17-year old German-born Polish Jew living in Paris. Never let a good crisis go to waste and if you cannot find one manufacture it and fan the flames of paranoia. I insist that the modern Democratic Party channels the Nazis in the quest to ‘ban guns.’ Sadly, too many Republicans are boarding that destructive train.
America if we give up our right to “keep and bear arms” we give up our Freedom! I pray that the millions of people in America who value that right and freedom will ban together and prevent this from becoming a bloody eventuality.
God bless you and God bless America!
