I don’t think the gravity of what has just happened, with the Supreme Court agreeing to hear the DC Gun case, has been realized yet. I have come to believe that the power players in the government, and the press, are so completely out of touch with their fellow Americans that they have no idea what we feel, or think, or how we react to certain things. In this case… how US citizens would react to an order to turn in our guns.
For that reason, we’re going to look closely at what MAY happen in this country if the Supreme Court rules in favor of Washington, DC, and determines that the citizens of this country have no individual right to “keep and bear arms”.
There will, in all likelihood, be armed conflict between the citizens and the US Military.
Because to begin with, local law enforcement agencies will not have the manpower, or the firepower, to enforce the law against citizens who refuse to comply. Only the US Military will have both the manpower, and firepower, to do that. Which begs the question… will individual soldiers of the US Military take up arms against fellow Americans? Not to mention the “Posse Comitatus” law will have to be repealed.
See? This is HEAVY STUFF!
Now, for you folks, of the liberal persuasion, who feel all you have to do is get a ruling from the Supreme Court and armed citizens will stand in line to comply with a law to turn in their guns… THINK AGAIN! It AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN! Just the opposite, in fact, will happen. Caches of weapons will be located all over the swamps and woodlands of the South and the West. We are simply not going to turn in our weapons. Only a very few of our weapons are registered… in anticipation of just such a move by the government. Only token weapons will be turned in. The vast bulk of our arms will be hidden in places known only to God and us.
If you think the government sieges at Ruby Ridge and Waco, Texas, with the subsequent deaths of American citizens at the hands of government agents, were something… again…you ain’t seen nothing yet.
It is not far-fetched nor outside the realm of possibility, that in case such a scenario comes to pass, there is the better than even chance the US will not survive as a single nation.
I honestly do not think the “air-headed” Gungrabbers have any idea of the hornets nest thy have just stirred up. If there is any single issue, which will draw a line in the sand of the country called America, attempting to take away American’s guns is it! They haven’t the common sense to understand they have just lighted the fuse to the largest keg of powder in the arsenal!
And… what to do about the several states, which have gun rights clauses in their state constitutions? There are 40, some odd, states that protect the rights of their citizens to keep and bear arms. Take a look at the list below. Determine if your state is among them, read the guaranteed gun rights from your state:
ALABAMA "That every citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state."Ala. Const. Art. I, Sect. 26
Now…If you find yourself STILL on the fence, on this issue, here are some facts you should know:
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.——————————
List of 7 items:
(In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past few months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.
You won’t see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson: With guns, we are ‘citizens’.Without them, we are ’subjects’.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
The Court’s decision, no matter what it is, is likely to come down a few weeks prior to the November election in 2008. Those of us who favor the right to keep and bear arms should insist that this issue become a prime part of the campaign of all candidates seeking the highest office in the land.
The erosion of American freedom not only continues, it has gathered speed.
