The simple fact is this, without a constitutional amendment, any gun ban or confiscation scheme the "Powers That Be" cook up, is DEAD ON ARRIVAL! To change the Constitution, the congress has to amend said Constitution. They haven't done that, and here's why, they don't have the support for an amendment, PERIOD! We are a CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED REPUBLIC. To those that have a limited grasp of vocabulary, this means my inalienable rights as an individual (Defined in the Constitution, but given by God, not government) cannot be trampled by anyone, whether it is another individual, or a group. You morons who define our Country as a democracy, haven't the foggiest notion what that even means, but I'll give you the definition Ben Franklin used "Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote."
I would challenge anyone to tell me how you force a government (benign of course) to change their evil ways without force of arms. Tell me how you are assured of your right to speak freely, or be secure from government intrusion in your home, ARMS! Thomas Jefferson wrote "The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government" This was written by the individual who wrote the Declaration of Independence and signed the U.S. Constitution, so it's easy to conclude from his lack of ambiguity in this statement, that this was the reason for the 2nd Amendment being spelled out in the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights, by the way, was not an attempt by the government to tell the American People what rights they were being given by them, but a reassurance to the people, that the government understood what rights were inherent to all people.
Since Dyin Hindswine, BooHOo, and countless other hypocritical, treasonous ghouls (politicians, media, etc.) want to reassure the American people with flatulant eminations of a less than honest nature (LIES), about the righteousness of their cause (getting rid of all the bad guns). I will also assure you that if those moronic individuals "Cross that Rubicon", the actions of those individuals and groups defending themselves against that assault on their inalienable rights, will be completely justified under the U.S. Constitution, and the treasonous government and media puss sacks that survive the bloodbath they start, will be lucky, if all that happens to them. is being hung by the neck until they are dead.
Please recognize that I, as an individual American, would rather seek out all peaceful means to the ends that we all desire. But with that being said, under no circumstances will I allow ANYONE to deprive me or mine the ability to effectively defend ourselves against any assailant, be it an individual burglar, bent on thievery, or a tyranical government with aspirations of unlimited power over those they are meant to serve. All tyrants start by confiscating the means of the people to effectively fight the tyrant's draconian designs, I will not rehash the history, (Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot) any educated person knows to be true (If you don't know, educate yourself, the internet is a wonderful thing). Know this, there will be no fence sitting on this one, you must pick a side, you can't be like the ferryman in "The Outlaw Josey Wales", singing "Dixie" till he dropped them off, then singing "The Battlehymn of the Republic" when he picks up the Federals.
If you plan to resist, make a plan now, not when they're at your door, TOO LATE!! Know that there are millions that feel the way you do, and will come together to give a message to "TPTB" they will understand in a very personal way, and will be justified in that course of action. In closing, I'm reminded of a quote from Ben Franklin "They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." So what do you deserve? Solzhenitsyn said it best in "The Gulag Archipelago"
“At what point, then, should one resist? When one's belt is taken away? When one is ordered to face into a corner? When one crosses the threshold of one's home? An arrest consists of a series of incidental irrelevancies, of a multitude of things that do not matter, and there seems no point in arguing about one of them individually...and yet all these incidental irrelevancies taken together implacably constitute the arrest.” (can you say TSA) Like I said, have a plan, don't let this quote be what you say later “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.” There are worse things than dying, living with that kind of regret, is not living at all.
