“Hell Yes We’re Going To Take Your AR-15”

In the recent debate among the Democratic Primary candidates Beto O”Rourke made clear his intentions concerning gun control, intentions I believe that reflect the Democrat Party as a whole. He is the one candidate that has made it abundantly clear that if allowed he will confiscate guns. Maybe the others haven’t explicitly expressed this opinion, but we can be sure that behind closed doors they all feel the same way. O’Rourke only mentioned AR-15s and AK-47s but you can be sure that this would only be the first step in the long road to disarming the American public.

I don’t believe that gun confiscation will work quite the way O’Rourke would like it to happen, it will take place in small increments. First will be national Red Flag Laws, laws that are a violation of the first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth amendments. These types of laws which unfortunately seem to be supported by politicians on both sides of the aisle as well as President Trump will do nothing to deter mass shootings. Even if they were somewhat effective in stopping this type of crime it still violates our Constitution.

After red flag legislation is passed and I do fear that within the next year we will see some form of these laws taking effect on a national level, the next step will be universal background checks which in turn will lead to national gun registration.

Once there is a national data base for registering guns, confiscation then becomes very easy. Once the guns are out of the hands of the citizens, tyranny begins. One only must look at what has happened over the last century. In Eastern Europe the Soviet Union and their satellite states of Hungary, Bulgaria and East Germany fell to the hands of totalitarianism once their citizens were disarmed. Hitler’s Germany disarmed the Jews which resulted in over six million deaths. More recently and closer to home we have Castro’s Cuba were most of the citizens were disarmed after the revolution and of course there is modern day Venezuela whose citizens lost the chance to defend themselves and are now starving under the socialist government.

Our Second Amendment was written into the Bill of Rights for a reason and that reason was not to support our right to hunt but to protect us from tyranny. Rest assured that the politicians that support “gun control” have one concern and one concern only. They want a population that cannot resist whatever plans they may have for our future.

Freedom For Sale

“Freedom is never more than one generation from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected and handed on for them to do the same.” Ronald Reagan

Anyone who has been paying attention to the Democrat Party’s 2020 platform and watched the debates must be wondering if we are entering that generation in which we lose our freedom. Listening to the different candidates it is hard to tell which one is the farthest to the left. We are being promised free healthcare, increased social security benefits, thousand dollar a month living stipends, a pristine environment, free higher education, unlimited immigration and security from those people who would perpetrate evil with assault weapons. The only thing we must do as citizens is give up more of our God given rights as well as more of our hard-earned money.

Upon visiting numerous Democrat Presidential primary websites I have come to the conclusion that if anyone of these candidates were to be elected and if their party takes control of both houses of congress, we will be part of that generation that loses the rest of our freedoms. But, if you are to believe the propaganda that they publish on their campaign sites it will be well worth it because we will be living in a perfect world where everything will be given to us and according to Elizabeth Warren gun violence will be reduced by 80%. Who wouldn’t mind giving up their freedom for both financial and physical security, i.e. socialism?

I am hoping the answer to that question is most freedom loving people. We must only look at other countries that have followed this path that the Democrats want us to go down and see where they have ended up. This type of socialist agenda has never worked in the past and will not work now. America is on the verge of bankruptcy as it is without adding trillions of dollars of debt to an already overburdened economy. Unfortunately, because of our public education system many of the current generation believe that this failed system will somehow be the answer to all our country’s ills. This is what happens when the liberals from the sixties are allowed to take over our education system, Karl Marx would be proud.

I believe that these Democrats know exactly what they are doing and where they plan on taking this country. Because of this they know they need to disarm the public. At some point the people will wake up to what is being done to them, just look at the unrest in Venezuela. Therefore most if not all candidates have talked about gun reform/confiscation. It is not about safety for the citizens but about safety for those who wish to rule us. After all it is all about the power.

Freedom for Safety

The Road to Serfdom

It is more than a little scary how over the decades we have forfeited our freedom for what we assume is safety. Ever since the founding of our nation the people have slowly given up the freedoms that our founders fought for just to gain a little security. As evidenced in this short video the people have handed over their hard-earned treasure to the several hundred politicians who have used the threat of a mob like institution, the IRS, to steal from the citizens of this country.

As much as we want to kid ourselves we own nothing, our possessions are only on loan to us even though we used our own resources to acquire them. You may think that you own your home, your car or other personal belongings but fail to pay your taxes and see how long it is before the government, either federal or state, comes and take them away from you.  We are no longer a free people; we are all slaves to those we elected to represent us.

How has this come about? We continue to elect representatives that look out for one thing and one thing only and that is power and wealth. The only way they achieve these is to take from others. Why do we allow this, because we think that we as a people are incapable of providing for our own security? We have become a nation of cowards that are willing to forgo our freedom for temporary safety. Whether you are white, black, yellow, straight or gay, you are a slave to those who are in power. Until the citizens of this country decide otherwise, we will continue to head down the road to serfdom. Wake up America before it is too late.

The Real Logic Behind Gun Control

This morning I got together with a good friend and neighbor for coffee and as usual we starting discussing what is going on in our country. Our talk covered a wide range of current issues and eventually turned to gun control. Both of us are very conservative as well as avid 2nd Amendment supporters so you can pretty much guess what our thoughts were on this issue.

As we were talking my friend brought up a very good point when he mentioned that people keep saying that the gun control proponents are not using logic when it comes to new gun laws and regulations. What he mentioned was that there is logical reasoning behind their ideas, unfortunately most people believe that the goal of the left is to make our society safer when their real goal is to disarm the pubic in order to solidify their control over the populous.

I must agree with this assessment because I don’t believe for a second that these leftist politicians are so ignorant that they think that more failed policy will make us safer.  To believe otherwise is a dire mistake that conservatives are making. People need to start realizing that the left is interested in one thing only and that is gaining and keeping as much power as possible. It is way past time for conservatives to call the left out on their real agenda. Our so-called conservative politicians need to point out the real reasoning behind this gun control agenda. Of course, the liberals will deny this, and the media will push the same denials but none the less we must push for the truth.

There is just a little over a year before we go to the polls to vote for president and everyone of the Democrat candidates are stating what they will do to promote gun control if elected. If necessary, they are even willing to by-pass congress and issue executive orders to get their policies in place. When our countries’ founders wrote the second amendment the single most important reason for this amendment was to give the citizens the ability to protect themselves from an oppressive government.  

How many times over the last half century have we seen governments first strip their citizens of their means of self-protection and then the rest of their freedoms. Here in the United States we are fortunate to have a Constitution which guarantees our God given rights to protect ourselves from an overbearing government. The 2nd Amendment is the only thing that prevents us from losing our other rights. If the 2nd is revoked how will we protect our other freedoms?
