Guest Post: Feinstein's Gun Control Bill Will Trigger The Next American Revolution

Submitted by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market blog,

All political power comes from the barrel of a gun. The communist party must command all the guns, that way, no guns can ever be used to command the party - Mao Tse Tung

After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military - William Burroughs

Revolution?  Yes, it all sounds rather “extreme”, but the cold hard reality of our era is not going to comfort us with diplomacies and niceties, so honestly, why should I have to sugar coat anything?  We live in extreme times and there is no longer room for prancing around the ultimate consequences of that which is taking place in America today.  This country is increasingly sliding towards the edge of internal conflict.  The Liberty Movement and true Constitutionalists see it, subsections of Republicans and Democrats see it, and most of all, the federal government sees it.  In fact, they may even be counting on it. 

Over the past two years alone, multiple draconian policies have been enacted through executive order by the Obama Administration which build upon the civil liberty crushing actions of George W. Bush and press far beyond.  The Patriot Acts, the FISA domestic spy bill, the bailouts of corrupt international banks, attempts at CISPA and SOPA, actions like the NDAA authorizing the treatment of U.S. citizens as “enemy combatants” without rights to due process; all paint a picture so clear only a one-celled amoeba (or your average suburban yuppie) would not see it.  You and I, and everyone else for that matter, have been designated potential targets of the state.  Our rights have been made forfeit.

There is no ambiguous or muddled separation between the citizenry and the government anymore.  The separation is absolute.  It is undeniable.  It is vast.  It is only a matter of time and momentum, and eventually there will be unbridled oppression, dissent, and conflict.  All that is required is a trigger, and I believe that trigger has arrived…       

Though made to appear “complex”, the gun control debate is actually an incredibly simple issue.  It all boils down to a couple of questions which gun grabbers rarely ask:  How does the 2nd Amendment affect the future?  That is to say, what was the original intent, and should we still value that intent as it applies to tomorrow?  And, what will really happen if it is forcibly removed?  Gun opponents act as though they are unaware of these questions, or maybe they don’t care.  However, it is vital to their safety and the safety of our culture in general that they do finally consider the bigger picture. 

We’ve all heard the prefabricated gun control talking points before.  Some of them so old they predate us.  They are numerous and most of them incredibly thin.  The gist of the anti-gun position, though, could be boiled down to these three points...

Common Anti-Gun Arguments:

1) The 2nd Amendment is “outdated” and no longer relevant in today’s modern society.

2) We do not want to stop you from “defending yourself”, or interfere with the American tradition of hunting, but people do not need “military assault weapons” for either.

3) Your claimed freedom to own guns should not supersede my freedom to live without fear of guns.  We exist in a society, and our society requires us to give up certain freedoms so that it can function.

Again, in response to these arguments, I have to ask, what does the 2nd Amendment mean for the future?  What was its original intent?  Gun control advocates would like to ignore the fact that the Constitution specifically protects a broad application of gun ownership, but when they cannot deny the legality of it, they instead turn to more abstract and existential methods of attack.  They try to twist the original intent of the 2nd Amendment to further their goals.  To respond briefly to each of the above fallacies:   

1) The right to self defense from ANY threat, whether it be an individual, or a criminal government, does not “outdate”.  It is a universal and eternal freedom.  It is a foundational pillar of natural law.  Even if the 2nd Amendment did not exist, I would still have the inborn right to arm and protect myself and those I love, and the best way to do that is to own firearms.  The men who drafted the Constitution were far more intelligent than any pithy gun grabber today, yet, these socialist errand boys seem to believe that they have “surpassed” the wisdom of the Founders.  The amount of ego required to fuel such an attitude boggles the mind…

Gun violence and violence in general will not end simply by banning firearms.  The very idea that any society can remove all weapons from their sight is naïve to begin with.  Criminals always find a way.  Murder, rape, and mayhem will continue until you confront the root problem, which is the human mind, and the human heart.  Only when these two things are balanced in all people will violence end.  Disarming good men and women has never made a society “safer”.  When the power of defense is removed from the people, someone, somewhere, will seek to abuse their weakness.  The most armed entity of the time invariably becomes the subjugator, and usually this is the government.  Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, etc, all contained disarmed populations.  The guns were gone, and still millions upon millions died.  Modern day Mexico is a perfect example of a disarmed population that is now living in terror because of criminal organizations (which, of course, still have guns).  Disarmament does NOT end gun violence, it only changes the dynamic of who uses that violence, and it makes innocent victims easier to attack.

2) Because the legal argument over the “interpretation” of the 2nd Amendment is essentially over, and the Supreme Court has ruled that gun rights do indeed apply to individuals, and not just collective bodies like the National Guard, gun grabbers are now reverting to the argument that we ARE allowed to defend ourselves with firearms, but the kinds of firearms we are able to use can still be limited.  The goal of this argument is to fool gun owners who only possess conventional firearms (hunting rifles) into believing that they will not be personally affected if they support a ban on military style weapons.  These wishy-washy hunting enthusiasts are often referred to as “Elmer Fudds” because of their gullibility.

All gun confiscation programs start by chipping away at the outer barriers of gun ownership.  Like termites slowly chewing away at the wooden skeleton of a home, anti-gun proponents start small and end by destroying the entire edifice.  Anyone who believes Feinstein’s legislation will begin and end with AR-15’s and AK-47’s is living in fantasy land.  That said, the 2nd Amendment was not established for hunting purposes.  Nowhere in the writings of the Founding Fathers do they mention “hunting” as their primary concern.  Instead, gun rights are protected in order to ensure that the citizenry remains dominant over any centralized government that turns to corruption.  We are supposed to police our own political leaders, and without military style arms, this becomes increasingly difficult. 

Gun grabbers will argue that our government is not the enemy because it is derived through democratic elections.  They will say that we can change it anytime we like in the voting box.  I would point out that regardless of which party is placed in power through elections, nothing in terms of our direction as a country has been changed, and, that both parties support almost identical policies.  For instance, Obama has come out in favor of nearly identical policy initiatives to Bush, and I can almost guarantee that many Republicans will sign onto the gun control efforts of Democrats despite their supposed pro-gun rhetoric.  When the two party system becomes a one party system, voting becomes irrelevant. 

Finally, they will admonish the idea of an armed citizenry keeping the government in check as a “fairy tale”.  They will claim that in the face of modern military might, constitutionalists would be crushed.  For what can an AK-47 do to an F-15?  Apparently, they have never heard of Afghanistan, which has used AK-47’s and 30 year old armaments to repel two technologically advanced armies; the Soviet Union and the U.S.  Of course, the Afghanis did not allow themselves to be disarmed…   

3) Here is where we get into the nonsense of intellectual idiocy.  The only real skill which academics seem to have is jumbling piles of logical fallacies together to make a single argument that sounds “rational”, but, in fact, isn’t.  The third debate point is an extremely collectivist one, and collectivist arguments generally exploit the idea that individuals must sacrifice their personal freedoms in order for the group to function. 

The truth is, the group does not matter.  The perceived collective concerns and fears of a mass of people are not relevant.  All that matters are the concerns of the singular man or woman, and whether or not those concerns are legitimate.  If a person “fears” guns and gun violence, then that is their private problem, not the problem of our entire society.  We as gun owners should not have to relinquish our rights because others are afraid of what MIGHT happen to them.  We should demand that they control THEIR fear, instead of being allowed to control OUR guns.  Just because a portion of our country shares this individual fear does not make that fear any more credible, or any more our problem.      

Do They Know What They Are In For...?

Feinstein’s campaign for gun control is not hers alone; it has been the overall establishment’s work in progress for decades.  I covered the broad based arguments of gun control advocates above because I wanted to illustrate the tangibility of gun ownership.  I want to show you where we stand as constitutionalists, and I can say confidently that our moral and intellectual footing is strong.  To be clear, when defenders of a particular idea are right in their position, they are much more likely to fight and die for that position, and they are much more likely to win.  

In the beginning I asked what the 2nd Amendment means for the future of this country.  Not only if it continues, but if it disappears.  If I was a gun control proponent, I would weigh the aftereffects of my actions carefully, because the penalties will likely be dire…

I have heard it argued that Americans are passive.  We didn’t rise up against the last Assault Weapons Ban. We didn’t rise up against the Patriot Act.  We didn’t rise up against TSA molestation.  We didn’t rise up against warrantless wiretapping, the assassination of U.S. citizens, or even the NDAA.  The people who make this point, though, are not looking at the larger issue.  It is one thing for our government to pass legislation; the wider application of that legislation on our streets and at our doorsteps is another matter. 

Feinstein’s bill is unprecedented in the history of this country, and requires widespread enforcement in every town and hamlet in order to be effective.  The way in which it is designed makes a violent response from the public inevitable.  It reaches far beyond the Assault Weapons Ban of the 1990’s, calling for the creation of a massive database of almost all gun owners in the United States.  This database will require citizens to submit their EXISTING firearms to cataloging, and the owners to be filed and fingerprinted like criminals. 

The bill will ban the outright the sale, manufacture, and transfer of at least 120 models of firearms (which have not yet been named).  It will ban the manufacture and sale of most if not all semi-automatic rifles and the bill specifically targets handguns as well.  Large capacity mags and mag fed weapons will essentially disappear from gun stores.  Though, those guns designated as “hunting rifles” will be exempt (for now).

Feinstein has also openly agreed with NY Governor Andrew Cuomo that government buy back programs (forced selling of firearms at a reduced price) and even physical confiscations are on the table:

http://www.opposingviews.com/i/society/guns/new-york-governor-andrew-cuomo-says-gun-confiscation-could-be-option

http://washingtonexaminer.com/sen.-feinstein-suggests-national-buyback-of-guns/article/2516648

To put this bluntly, there are approximately 50 million gun owners (according to official estimates) in the United States.  If only 2% of those gun owners refuse to submit to the Feinstein Database, and the feds attempt confiscation, they will have a massive revolution on their hands.

Many Americans, including myself, will not be strolling into the local Fusion Center to register our weapons.  Why?  Because gun registration reeks of fascism!  Some might call this “cliche”, but let’s just examine the guidelines of the Nazi Gun Registration Program of 1938:

- Classified guns for "sporting purposes"

- All citizens who wished to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and have a background check.

- Presumed German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazis from the gun control law (meaning officials could have guns, citizens could not).

- Gave Nazis unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not be owned by private persons.

- The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by bureaucrats.

- Juveniles under 18 years could not buy firearms and ammunition.

You see, we’ve witnessed the Feinstein gun bill before, many times through history.  We know how it ends, so, there is very little incentive for us to go along quietly.

The database itself is truly the crux of it all.  It basically begs to be defied.  When a government has become openly hostile to common people, destructive of their economy, and oppressive of their individual rights, it only follows that gun registration will lead to outright confiscation later down the road or imprisonment for the owner.  Many Americans are simply not going to fall into the same trap that past societies have fallen into.  The eventual refusal of millions of citizens to voluntarily register will lead to a definite federal response. 

The Department Of Homeland Security has obviously taken this into account, at least partly, by stockpiling over 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in the span of a year, most of which are used in weapons distributed by the government for domestic enforcement.  Their projected scenario, I believe, involves limited resistance from people like myself; “gun nuts” and “liberty freaks” who are on the “fringe” of the populous.  At least, that’s what the headlines will say.  In the end, who will care if a few “conspiracy theorists” take a bullet in the quest to end gun violence, right?  But then again…

What I see in America is a much harder stance against gun confiscation than at any time in recent memory, and far less compromising than in the 1990’s.  Gun grabbers are, in my view, walking into a hornets nest.  Most average firearms enthusiast may be less aware of the deeper problems at hand, but they know when they are about to be raped, and will react in kind.  We in the Liberty Movement are often accused of “radicalizing” people against government authority, but I have to say, if that is the case, then the Feds are doing a much better job than we ever could.

Simultaneously, the UN (which most gun owners despise) is helping matters along by using the recent Sandy Hook shooting as a springboard for a reintroduction of their failed international Small Arms Treaty:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/28/un-arms-treaty-nra_n_2373417.html

"European and other U.N. delegates who support the arms trade treaty told Reuters on condition of anonymity they hoped Newtown would boost support for the convention in the United States, where gun control is an explosive political issue."

"Newtown has opened the debate within the United States on weapons controls in ways that it has not been opened in the past," Abramson said, adding that "the conversation within the U.S. will give the (Obama) administration more leeway."

The UN has always claimed that their small arms treaty would NOT restrict private gun ownership in the U.S., and that it only deals with the international trade of illicit arms.  Yet, they try to use gun control actions in the face of Sandy Hook as a rationale for reopening negotiations?  They can't have it both ways.  Either they are trying to tie the treaty to domestic gun ownership in the U.S, or they aren't.  Will our government sign on to an international agreement to restrict private gun ownership on top of Feinstein's gun grab bill?  

To put this in the most basic terms: registration and restriction equals revolution.  Count on it.  It is not a matter of what we "want", it is a matter of what is necessary.  Without a citizenry armed with weapons of military application, we lose our last deterrent to tyranny, and thus, we lose everything.  When backed into a corner, a victim has two options: he can lie down and die, or, he can fight regardless of the odds.  Sadly, this is where we are in America; fear, servitude, subservience, or civil war.

Let us hope our weapons are never needed --but do not forget what the common people knew when they demanded the Bill of Rights: An armed citizenry is the first defense, the best defense, and the final defense against tyranny. If guns are outlawed, only the government will have guns. Only the police, the secret police, the military, the hired servants of our rulers. Only the government -- and a few outlaws. I intend to be among the outlaws - Edward Abbey

an organized militia would be made up of individual citizens. The citizens would bring their firearms and ammo. As a volunteer unit the militia would not have their own funds to purchase firearms for the volunteers so it would be reasonable to expect that individuals would have to have firearms to be able to fight.

Swtitzerland hasn't been invaded either, and I don't remember hearing of any mass gun crimes.  The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo  weapons training. The personal weapons of the militia are kept at home as part of the military obligations; Switzerland thus has one of the highest  gun ownership in the world.

I would say that a deeper look into Switzerland system as to how they determine whether they should give a firearm to somebody or not. I would imagine they have a pretty intensive mental health screening to weed out any suspected mentally ill people. The issue for us is not firearms per se but instead mentally ill people in possession of a firearm. How did they get it? Did they go buy it and commit the murderous act? Did they steal the firearm? Well we know in the Tucson shooting the guy was mentally ill but never had his rights to purchase a firearm ever suspended or removed. We know the guy in Newtown stole his as he was also mentally ill. He tried to buy one but refused to submit to a background check so they refused to sell him one. Did he refuse because he knew he was already in the FBI database as a mentally ill person and a prohibited possessor? Had his mother been a responsible gun owner and actually locked her guns in a safe knowing her son was mentally ill he wouldn't have been able to get her firearms to do his murderous deeds. Botton line is we need a comprehensive database of mentally ill people not a database of guowners. Feds need to be able to put in place a better system of tracking mentally ill people and ensuring they are entered into the database as a prohibited possessor as we all know even with medication their is no cure for mental illness. Once you are mentally ill you have that for life.  Medication only allows them to cope to a certain degree but doesn't make them normal. I know as I have a mentally ill family member and none of the rest of the family would ever leave our guns around for that person to get possession of.

Feinstein's bill is filled with "exceptions" and is not the threat portrayed in this piece of prop. Once the left learns how weak this leg is, they'll be bitching bigtime. This piece is simple, mindless fear mongering bullshit. We're gonna lose our guns! The guns that will protect us from tyranny! Wake up dipshit. Your guns don't scare those who have already done a great fuckin job of establishing tyranny. So, go ahead and fool yourself into thinking that more guns is the answer. While your stockpiling, they're surveilling every aspect of your life and if necessary will take you out before you can cock your meaningless peashooter.

So then you don't want to ban any guns because they are pointless and ineffective, correct? Or is it that you want to ban pea shooters and spit balls as well?

Which states defy Federal law and smoke pot??? Hmmmmm guess I will move there and have my guns.

Might be time for the NRA(in conjuctiion with weapons manufacturers) to suggest to congress that they are aware of USA Govt arms deals with other countries and factions that are/were not quite legal or UN approved. Time to air out some dirty laundry. Yes Obama it is "Complicated".

And O

Make sure that all Feinstein bans pertain to the police and national guard also so that no citizen is in jeopardy of unfair government use of force. 

The best deterrant is that nobody knows whether I have a gone or not.   Creating a new TAX such as gun Registration notifies the world and diminishes my protection.

I wonder....

I'm an Aussie. As a general comment I don't like guns.  I don't know what it means to have a gun or the right to own one.  I live under a constitution that makes no reference to the right to bear arms.  For the most part, guns are illegal.  I can honestly say that I do not know anyone who even owns a gun.  I can't even own a BB gun to shoot coke cans, let alone a real handgun or rifle.  To be sure, we have a criminal underworld, who of course have access to illegally obtained weapons. They've been shooting and killing eachother for years.  No one really seems to care about that, so long as no civilian is harmed, which is the general rule.  We've had the ocassional mass shooting but these have been very rare indeed and usually linked to disturbed or severely affected individuals.  I was down the road in another building in Melbourne when the last mass shooting occured in the early 90's and it certainly was scary.  Despite this, I don't feel the need to own a gun to protect my home and my family.  I do sleep with a baseball bat under the bed, though I've never had reason to use it.  With no form of defence, if I were shot at, I'd certainly be killed.

Growing up, when I read or heard of shootings in the US, I used to think that the people in the states were insane, that the one and only solution was to get rid of the guns by whatever means possible.  Stories of mindless gun rage and school shootings lead me to no other conclusion.  These days I'm not so sure about that.  You boys and girls in the US are different. Guns are part of your life and culture in a way that I will never understand.  I'm still not convinced that full blown automatic weapons are necessary for civilians or that that was in the contemplation of the authors of the constitution, but I think that I have come around to the view that guns don't kill people, people kill people.  Protect yourselves.

Aussie, I appreciate your open mind.   The best way to explain my experience of growing up with guns, and now raising children with them, is that we view a gun as just another tool - albeit a dangerous one.   My kids know not to play with knives, a chainsaw, or the underside of a lawnmower, but they do know how to use each of these tools.  We view our guns exactly the same way.  We are not obsessed with them or their presence in the home.  We do however keep them handy yet stored safely, and we cherish the fact that they are there if needed.

your population is much smaller and homogenous, with reduced poverty due to abundant natural resources, thus reducing crime.  your country did not have to fight to establish itself as the US did, so you don't feel the need to be vigilant against govt.  your country cannot even properly defend itself, so your citizenry are enured to the protection of others, and feel themselves somewhat immune.

The UN Small Arms Treaty failed in the US Senate in the last week of July. In less than a week we had the "Joker Murders". The next week, we had the "Sikh Temple Massacre". Now Sandy Hook. Connecting the dots yet? They probably brought in foreign terrorist to do these hits. Nothing would surprise me at this point. Yes, they will introduce the bill, sponsored by a Jewess, to gut yet another of our rights. And they will get their way. Nobody stood up when our sound money system was taken away by the Federal Reserve. Nobody resisted the implementation of the Federal Income Tax. Too few resisted that bastard FDR when he fostered socialism on us and took our gold. No one stood up to LBJ when he demonetized silver and took us into an undeclared war. No one called out slick Willy for his many crimes, or Bush, or the Kenyan. No, we are ripe for the NWO and they know it. Just don't take away our diversions and pleasures of the flesh, you can have our liberty, our future, our children, take it all, just leave us our pornography, drugs, cellphones and cable TV. True, some will not sit back on their ass and allow yet another, perhaps the most important of our rights to be taken away by a government that views it's citizens with contempt. Ask yourself how far you are willing to go to protect your rights to bear arms. Different people will arrive at different conclusions.

That is a rediculous statement. All those mass murderers you described have one thing in common. They were all mentally disturbed and had access to firearms. If we had a better system in place of identifying mentally ill people and restricting their access to firearms then we have made a step in the right direction. Doctors should be required to notify the FBI the moment they diagnose somebody mentally ill so that they are entered into the national database as a prohibited possessor. If anything should be changed with lawful owners of firearms it is private party sale of a firearm should be mandated to go through an FFL dealer who would do the background check. That closes a loophole to the mentally ill from bypassing a business and background check and purchasing it from a private citizen. Look at backpages.com in the Phoenix arizona section and you will see how easy it is for somebody to buy a firearm off the radar and without a background check.

I think that one of the reasons that no Foreign Country ever wanted to attack America on its own soil is because of all of the Guns in the hands of its Citizens.

The worry for me about Gun confisication is that it weakens the United States against Foreign attack on our soil.

Does the so called Gun grab and the weakness of our Financial system, our huge Debt, indicate a potential Foreign take over of our Country?  Where they would not want the armed Americans causing too much of a resistance.

2 Weeks before the Newtown massacre Difi's California "early released" criminal alien felon Ka Pasasouk for the 5 or 6 or 24th time (nobody is talking), he executed 4 young immigrants (one a new mom) on their front lawn down the street from the local LAPD station.  THIS WAS   2 WEEKS BEFORE NEWTOWN. 

Ka used a gun, Ka was a CA 3-striker and should have been locked up for life-then deported, but in CA the Mexican mafia runs the show (with Difi's & Boxer's consent) , and they run an alien felon early release program that includes non-hispanics too, including alien felon armed robbers with meth problems.

Then the state and media kept ka's "deportable alien felon status" hidden for another 3 weeks after the quadruple murder to promote their Newtown massacre gun control agenda.

This current exercise is about locating the guns and making a list of who owns them. 

The reason Feinstein's un-pasable law is up and open for everyone to see during the long holiday is so the "glum compromise" of merely registering all guns (like cars) will be seen as "reasonable."

They are making "THE LIST" - a list of the first people to challenge privileged elites that are running the country into the stone age.

They are going to have a federal registration tax - good for several years on every gun in the land.  They are going to collect files on every gun owner.  If you own more than 1 gun you will put on a watch list.  If oyu buy ammo, you are on a list.  Maybe a mental health exam is in order?  Where does it stop?

This is all a part of a larger data mining exercise.  They just don't have all your gun data YET.

We all knew this was coming when the Patriot Act was being bounded about.  Now its here.  In your face.

In the next year, (it's Eric Holder's Magnum Opus) a reasonable, law abiding person is going to have to make a long term decision to fully comply with these edicts.

Do you comply?  Sure it's theoretical now, but so was gold confiscation.  At some time in 1932-33, you had to start making plans.  Who do you trust?  How big do you go?  Are you willing to dig in for a longer fight if necessary?  Who or what are you really fight for?  What is the line in the sand - a UN checkpoint down the block?  No food for the kids?

Guns and gun owners already have a ton of laws on them.  But the government WANTS MORE.

Why?  To make us safe?!

The first line of defense is deciding if your so-called representative is FOR or AGAINST any of this. 

Time to start picking a side folks.  Time to march into congressional offices and find out what is going down.

Are you for the Human Spirit and Liberty or are you for Corporate Power?

You still have a choice, but for how long?

http://www.newswire.ca/fr/story/126765/federal-gun-registry-has-not-impr...

The above is a Fraser Institute Press Release from 2007.  At that time, Canada had spent north of $2 BILLION on the gun registry.  They hired a lot of retired police officers and their family members to staff this behemoth.  Think of all the double dipping...

The end result of the Canadian exercise in gun registration is many billions were spent for a computer database that was not accurate and could not be used in the court of law.

The main "administrative" problem with the registry information is that any error was considered a criminal offence.  As a result you needed to be a legally recognized firearms expert in order to properly describe the firearm as there were many features specific to the various models of a particular firearm that needed to be properly described.  For purposes of ease of administration, it was accepted that the fields of information contained in the record of information related to the specific firearm could be filled as "not known".  Many firearms enthusiasts made the self determination that they were not experts in legal art of firearms description.  As a result, many of the fields of information were filled in as 'not known'.  These included fields such as calibre (303 British vs .312, 9mm vs. .356, 38 super vs .356, 38 special vs .358, etc).  The make field was left as unknown as a Lee Enfield could be considered a Longbranch or a BSA or one of many others.  Savage made many guns for Sears, Woolco, CIL, etc.).  The end result is that it was proper to complete the paperwork for a firearm and not show any specific information as all fields were filled with the narrative (not known).  This action allowed you to protect yourself in a criminal court related to any administrative charges that you did not describe your firearm in the proper manner.

Many individuals sent in extra registration forms filled out in this manner so they had pre-packaged paperwork in the event that some black market firearm needed to have legal provenance; in the event that an owner wanted to sell the gun in an administratively compliant manner.

Another major problem related to the accuracy of the residental address of the registered owners of guns.  Even today, there are many tens of thousands of Canadian "restricted" firearms owners who have not followed up with the administrative task of updating their record to show their new addresses.  The RCMP is very aware of this as they cross-reference the addresses of the individual through the many databases they have.  The RCMP has turned a blind eye to this administrative omission.  The legal question is whether the individual broke the law by not providing updated personal information to that particular database when they had provided the updated information to other government departments.  No one has been charged in this matter.

This 'american' author feels he's crossed borders: he is no longer able to distinguish between his fantasy and reality.

When reading him,it appears as if he lived through the fantasy he vomits.

Now about guns.

'American' economics is all about consumption and 'americans' apply 'american' solutions.

So here what to expect:

_if there is a ban, it will be to increase consumption. Supply of weapons will be increased (consumption up) and as a reaction, trying to ban the guns will increase consumption.

Increasing consumption by both ends.

-look for other consumption increases:

security guards, check points, monitoring devices etc all that will result in more consumption.

protection gear for kids. At the moment, there is probably not kid size body armour etc as 'americans' kill kids primarly in third world countries.
Look for that increase in offer

It is simple, 'americans' wont choose any solution that reduces their consumption. Only those that increase their consumption.

Ban of guns is fantasy. The rest is not. Just waiting to happen.

1st of all maybe not this law might pass - but eventually it will. This is how the mission creep goes, throw out an outlandish law everyone cries out sneak a watered down but still effective law in - rinse wash repeat and eventually it will get there.

Secondly - where are all these "Patriots" going to arise from? The TSA lines, walmart? The American people have watched the 1st, 4th, 6th and 10th amendments go by the waste side and not a peep - not even from Cindy Sheehan - not one patriot set himself on fire like the poor bastard in Tunisia - nope my friends - as a life long gun owner, a veteran and a lifetime NRA member I agree that we should confiscate all the guns - for the premise is no longer valid - the 2nd amendment was written for people yearning and wanting to hold onto freedom - today's Americans are not those people - therefore why the need for arms to assert independence when you are happy being a slave - might as well disarm the slaves so that they don't at least hurt each other - God knows they won't use the weapons to break out and get free - which was their origional intent...

We must always keep in mind that it is the gun right's groups, free thinkers, independent minded Americans that are the last group to stand in the way of the Brave New World or 1984, whichever flavor you prefer.

Once we are out of the way, there will be no stopping a totalitarian regime from ruling the world.  Therefore, we are under constant attack.  Right now that attack takes the form of rhetoric and legislation that would deteriorate our way of life.  It will finally reach a point of violence when they think they have the numbers and the support to crush us once and for all.  Evil is aggressive.  Always has been and always will be.  A CLEAR characteristic of evil is that it will NEVER leave you alone.  It will always seek to infect and corrupt.  It hates the truth and pushes the lies.  The lies we hear from the media and the left every day.  Even some of the right (politicians) are pushing lies on us today.

Freedom is the ability to know the truth, live the truth, and speak the truth without fear of oppression for the truth.  The truth is:  the ability to possess the weapons to defend oneself is a basis of freedom, while having to depend on protection from another is a basis of slavery.  To say different is to promote a lie.  The lie is: guns kill people, the truth is people kill people.  The lie is: a society without guns is safer than a society with guns.  Tell that to N Korea, China, Russia, Hitler's Germany, Cambodia, Vietnam, Chicago and all the other examples history has given us.

DC is manufacturing lie after lie about healthcare, gun control, foreign policy, taxes, debt, etc. and the media is there to promote and spin the lies to an acceptable form for the public.  We have a responsibility to know the truth, live the truth and promote the truth to those around us.  When we can no longer do this FREELY, then we are slaves.  I for one will not live a lie or promote their lies.  Therefore, I am their enemy already.  I will aggressively DEFEND my right to the truth and freedom to live the truth.  I hope there are those who will stand with me but regardless I will stand.

You too have a choice.  Live free and follow the truth (which always has and always will cost you a high price) or give into the lies and willingly become a slave to the promoter of lies.  There are your two sides.  I hope that if there is a revolution, and by the grace of God we win it like Washington and the boys did in the beginning, we go back to the Constitution and reaffirm those principles and live by them.  I don't think this is possible because it requires a populace with character, integrity, and moral principles that the majority in this country no longer has.  I fear, however, that we will lose as Lee and Jackson did and what follows will be worse than now.  And if that is the case, I don't want to live to see it anyway.  So I guess I am a winner either way.

Unfortunately no individual gun owner has any power over government sponsored terrorism.

Without creating a movement that eventually organizes great numbers of citizens, gun ownership is really a joke if anyone thinks it will protect them against  government tyranny.

The California style bill that Feinstein will introduce did work in California. Her bill will go far beyond the California bill to close off the loopholes. It can be construed to control all guns with removable magazines, rifle or pistol. As the preview of her bill contains the wording “ can accept a magazine over 10 rounds” she got em all because ANY removable magazine can be extended to hold over 10 rounds. The seemingly safe 1911 45 semi-auto can take a magazine over 10 rounds and in fact they have been manufactured. Same for rifles, that detachable magazine in your 30-06 deer gun will be subject to the Feinstein gun grab.

 

When (not if) the bill passes, you will have to register your gun. IF you do not do that, the penalty will be such that by the time you sell every thing you have to pay the lawyers and still go to jail anyway, your life will be destroyed and they will make sure it hits your family so that all associated with you are totally screwed over.

 

Those guns that succeed in being registered (there is no assurance that they have to accept you registration and can reject it and take your gun), can not be sold, passed on to others including your children and must be destroyed at your death. The value of all banned firearms goes to ZERO at the passing of the bill. If you have an “investment” in a gun collection it will not have any value. Now, to circumvent the taking of value, the Government may have a buy back program. Do not expect much recovery of actual value.

 

After the first round of gun registration, ammunition will have some laws passed and you will not be able to buy ammunition that is fired in the banned guns.

 

The second round of gun banning will be written to ban almost all firearms.

 

For the younger generation, this gun ban has been in process since the 1980s and the blade is finely honed and the players like Feinstein, Durbin, Schumer, and Clinton etc know the game and have no intent of loosing this golden opportunity.

 

As the wealth of the average American citizen has been destroyed, as jobs become an exception rather then the normal, as economic criminality becomes a way of life, as freedoms are reduced and controlled, so goes the changes of traditional American society.

 

For those who want to be able have a gun and pass it down to the children, the Russian WW1 and WW2 bolt actions with 5 round fixed magazines are going for about $120 +.  The round is very good and has been very cheap.

 

Just sayin

I can't speak for California, but nobody in Texas or Montana is having any of this bullshit.  They better fire up all their Manchurian candidates by the score if they expect to pass their bs laws.  Also, if they do get a ban like this through, there will be no more reason to play nice anymore--history shows what happens when people give up their arms. 

But basically, I disagree with your fatalistic view.  The 2nd Amendment is in far better shape than it was in the 1980s and there are far more gun owners and actual shooters than there were back then.  So "just sayin" you defeatist jerk.

You wrote, “Revolution?  Yes, it all sounds rather “extreme”,

Very true, but only because the vast majority of Americans (something like 99.99%) fail to understand that there are two kinds of revolution: one that advances the cause of tyranny; the other, liberty.  I call one a Bolshevik – the other, an American – revolution; after their most recent and spectacular examples.  Differences between the two are defined by a particular set of principles followed by each.  One acts according to “rules” of barbarism; the other, due process of law.

Naturally, one sounds rather extreme to most men; while the other sounds rather desirable; and makes you wonder why they don’t engage in the practice on a daily basis.

In other words, if you call your revolution, “Bolshevik”, and employ principles of a Bolshevik revolution, you will advance the cause of tyranny.  On the other hand, if you call your revolution, “American” and follow Bolshevik principles, you will STILL advance the cause of tyranny.

The name means nothing; principles followed, everything.

And this means, when revolution does come, it will be very bad news; if, that is, your cause is liberty.

The reason:  I spent twenty years, at least, searching 30,000 to 50,000 pages of original, unsanitized, histories; my focus was to learn those men and eras that advanced man’s civilization.  And I found, of thousands of rebellions and slave revolts that have occurred in human history, only three have advanced the cause of liberty.

Without proper knowledge – and without acting by it – you might as well dig your own grave.

But if he had his preference, Bloomberg said he would go farther than the 1994 ban and outlaw all automatic and semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines. The mayor said magazines shouldn't be allowed to contain more than five or six rounds.

All those mass murderers described have one thing in common. They were all mentally disturbed and had access to firearms. If we had a better system in place of identifying mentally ill people and restricting their access to firearms then we have made a step in the right direction. Doctors should be required to notify the state and FBI the moment they diagnose somebody mentally ill so that they are entered into the national database as a prohibited possessor. If anything should be changed with lawful owners of firearms it is private party sale of a firearm should be mandated to go through an FFL dealer who would do the background check. That closes a loophole to the mentally ill from bypassing a business and background check and purchasing it from a private citizen. Look at backpages.com in the Phoenix arizona section and you will see how easy it is for somebody mentally ill to buy a firearm off the radar and without a background check.

A team from West Middlesex University Hospital said violent crime is on the increase – and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all stabbings.

They argued many assaults are committed impulsively, prompted by alcohol and drugs, and a kitchen knife often makes an all too available weapon. They consulted 10 top chefs from around the UK, and found such knives have little practical value in the kitchen. None of the chefs felt such knives were essential, since the point of a short blade was just as useful when a sharp end was needed. from: http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/british-doctors-call-for-ban-on...

Overall this is a good article and well worth reading. If there is one thing Zero Hedge represents is that we are not afraid to look at the truth, good, bad or indifferent. Because without the truth you cannot genuinely assess your situation. So I have one disagreement with this otherwise superb article.

The German Weapons Law (Waffengesetz) of March 18, 1938 was not a RESTRICTION on the ownership of firearms by the National Socialists, rather it was a LIBERALIZATION of the previous draconian Weimar Republic's gun control law, which was passed in 1928, 5 years before the National Socialists gained power. Hitler became Chancellor on January 30, 1933. Hitler had to HIDE, according to John Toland's biography, his revolver which he often carried so that it would not be confiscated and he, therefore, arrested.

Hitler was always out among the people, in open cars, out on the street shaking hands, and when he had any police or military people meet him in  his office, even lowly privates, they KEPT their sidearms, fully loaded, I doubt the Marxist In Chief permits that.

In 1945 Eisenhower ordered all privately owned firearms in the American occupation zone of Germany confiscated, and Germans had to turn in shotguns, rifles and handguns. The Soviet occupation zone German civilians were summarily shot if they were found in possession of even a single cartridge.

The Treatment of Armenians Arnold Toynbee

A decree went forth that all Armenians should be disarmed. The Armenians in the Army were drafted out of the fighting ranks, re-formed into special labor battalions, and set to work throwing up fortifications and constructing roads. The disarming of the civil population was left to the local authorities, and in every administrative center a reign of terror began. The authorities demanded the production of a definite number of arms. Those who could not produce them were tortured, often in fiendish ways; those who procured them for surrender, by purchase from their Moslem neighbors or by other means, were imprisoned for conspiracy against the Government. Few of these were young men, for most of the young had been called up to serve; they were elderly men, men of substance and the leaders of the Armenian community, and it became apparent that the inquisition for arms was being used as a cloak to deprive the community of its natural heads. Similar measures had preceded the massacres of 1895-6, and a sense of foreboding spread through the Armenian people. "One night in the winter," writes a foreign witness of these events, "the Government sent officers round the city to all Armenian houses, knocking up the families and demanding that all weapons should be given up. This action was the death-knell to many hearts."

 

The appalling inference was in fact correct, for the second phase of persecution passed over without a break into the third and final act, and it is evident that the whole train had been laid by the Ministry at Constantinople before the first arms were called in or the first Armenian thrown into prison. This carries the detailed organization of the scheme at least as far back as February, 1915, and, indeed, the elaborate preparations that had already been made by the 8th April, the date of the first deportation at Zeitoun, presuppose at least as long a period. It is extremely important to emphasize these chronological facts, because they refute the attempt of the apologists to disconnect the last phase from the phases that preceded it, and to represent it as an emergency measure dictated by the military events of the spring.

Read the entire document at the link--that is what Bloomberg, Rahm Israel Emanuel, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Charles Schumer, Jerold Nadler, and perhaps a few Supreme Court Justices have in mind for YOU.

U.S.A. The Republic

How You Lost It!

 

NAZI GUN LAW
by Joyce Rosenwald

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

THOMAS JEFFERSON

Many of us living today were not yet born during the reign of terror of Adolph Hitler and his German Nazi party. Yet, every one of us have been told about the horrors and inhuman crimes perpetrated by the Nazis against select groups of people throughout all of Europe. We refer to Hitler and the Nazis as a group of criminals who took over a legitimate government and turned it into a killing machine. We heave a sigh of relief and thank God that kind of thing could never happen here in America.

Germany's Nazis were criminals .... mass murderers. About 12,000,000 civilians were murdered by the Nazis, among them thousands of women and children. Jews and Gypsies were targeted by the Nazis for total extermination. Some died from gassing in concentration camps. Some died from starvation in ghettos. Some were lined up in front of open graves and shot.

In 1928, five years before the rise of Hitler, Germany's freely elected government enacted a "Law on Firearms and Ammunition." This law required anyone who owned a firearm, or who wanted to own a firearm, to make themselves known to the authorities. Anyone who wanted to purchase a firearm had to get a "Firearms Acquisition Permit." If you needed ammunition, you had to get an "Ammunition Acquisition Permit." When you wanted to go hunting, you had to get an "Annual Hunting Permit." Every firearm that changed hands professionally had to have a serial number and the maker's or dealers name stamped into the metal. "Proof of need" was made a condition for issuance of all licenses, not just the carry permit. Mandatory prison sentences were imposed on anyone who professionally sold or transferred a firearm or ammunition without a license. Truncheons and stabbing weapons were subject to the same licensing requirements as firearms, in terms of their manufacture and sale.

As a result of the 1928 Law, all firearms and firearms owners were registered. To take firearms from anyone they distrusted, the Nazis simply did not renew permits. Under the law, their privately created law, the Nazis could now easily confiscate all firearms and ammunition from any, or all, selected groups. The gun law of 1928 had served the Nazis well. It made almost all law abiding firearms owners known to the authorities. The 1928  law on firearms and ammunition helped the Nazis to destroy democracy in Germany, by disarming the law abiding majority, whom they feared.

By the end of 1931, a rising tide of violence, mainly between Nazi and Communist street fighters, moved the authorities to tighten restrictions. Under new regulations, the police could order everyone's firearms and ammunition ... even items not normally used as weapons ... to be put into police custody,

"If the maintenance of public security and order require it."

'1, Fourth Regulations of the President for the Protection
of the Economy and Finance, and on the
Defense of Civil Peace, December 8, 1931

The Nazis came to power legally. They were voted into power. In elections held on March 5, 1933, the Nazis fell short of 50 percent of the vote. Hitler, afraid the public might oust him, didn't plan to hold more elections. On March 23, 1933, parliament voted to give him emergency powers under the Constitution. There were no more elections in Germany until after World War II. The Nazis were far from being popular with the German people. The Nazis knew that many Germans opposed them. The Nazis used the 1928 Law on Firearms and Ammunition to disarm their opponents and to prevent any armed resistance. The Nazis, at most, were a minority of the German population, not the majority. The Nazis operated within the Law. But in Germany, as here, a small private elite group wrote and defined the Law. WHEN YOU CREATE THE LAW, YOU CAN DEFINE THE LAW. IT CAN BE AS LEGAL TO ABOLISH LAWS AS IT IS TO INSTITUTE THEM. Hitler not only came to power legally, but instituted dictatorship legally.

On taking power in 1933, the Nazis did not immediately begin killing Jews. In April 1933, the Nazis enacted a law that kept Jews out of the civil service, universities, and most professions. In September 1935, the Nuremberg Laws were enacted: Jews lost their civil rights. In November 1938, the Nazi SS troops were unleashed against Germany's Jews. Jewish property was confiscated.

On March 18 1938, the Nazis enacted a new, tougher, gun control law. The Nazi Weapons Law (Waffengesetz) ensured that only Nazis and their friends could own or carry weapons, especially handguns. Licenses to sell, own, or carry firearms were required, except for exempted Nazi organizations and officials. Private persons were not exempt, but a Nazi Party Membership Card was proof of political reliability. The Nazi Weapons Law stated that no Jew could be involved in any business involving firearms. On November 11 1938, one day after the SS were unleashed against the Jews, new regulations under the Nazi Weapons Law barred Jews from owning any weapons.

Gun control in Nazi Germany was not difficult to enforce. Being a police state, (operating under the police power, not law) to get a "Firearm Acquisition License", one had to prove one's identity ---- the national identity card) --- and one's political loyalty (nazi party membership card). With strong police state controls over people, (loss of civil rights) gun control was easily enforced. A disarmed population is helpless. Bureaucrats and obedient civil servants "just doing their job", helped the Nazis carry out their plans. Without the help of those good people who were just doing what they were told, the Nazis could never have murdered as many people as they did.

The Nazi Weapons Law of March 18, 1938 is the blueprint for "Gun Control" in America today. America could not make Nazi style gun control work without the documents that Nazi style gun control needs. THE NAZI STYLE GUN CONTROL LAWS WERE ENACTED BY THE FEDERAL CONGRESS AS THE U.S. GUN CONTROL ACT OF 1968. Under this Act: every law abiding firearm owner had to prove that he/she was law abiding; firearms dealers had to record purchases and sales of firearms on behalf of the federal government. Federal and/or state bureaucrats (un-elected civil servants) got the new and broad power to decide who, among law abiding persons, may own and/or carry firearms and under what conditions what type of firearms may lawfully be owned. The vague concept of "sporting purpose" as a way of classifying firearms was introduced. Transactions in ammunition had to be recorded (this is no longer so). Ammunitions that were "legal" were subject to control by bureaucrats.

The Nazi gun control law required nation wide identification papers. Here in America the "social security number" created by Executive Order under President Franklin Roosevelt, is used as a national identifier. The Nazi gun law required a "Firearm Owner Identity Card." In Illinois, a person who wants to own a firearm has to get a "Firearm Owner Identification Card" complete with photograph. This takes 4 to 6 weeks. This "FOID" card is the direct descendent of the Nazi "Firearm Acquisition Permit" (Waffenerwerbschein), concealed carry permits are generally not available. No special permit is needed to transport a firearm from home to a target range if it is locked in the trunk of a car.

In Massachusetts, a "FOID" (Waffenerwerbscheine) card is necessary to own a firearm. To transport a pistol, even in a locked gun case in a locked trunk requires a "carry permit," the direct descendant of the Nazi "Firearm Carry Permit" (Waffenschein). To get this permit, or a permit for general concealed carry, three (3) letters of reference are required, as is a safety course at applicant's cost, a test of one's knowledge of firearm law, and a talk with the chief of police. The chief of police may still withhold the permit. If he agrees to issue the permit, the applicant is then finger printed.

In New Jersey, an applicant must first get a "Firearm Purchaser Identification Card" (Waffenerwerbschein), which requires finger printing. There is a special document for would be handgun owners, the "Permit to Purchase a Handgun." It is valid for 90 days, (extendable for 90 days for "good cause") and only for one handgun. Copies of this permit must be sent to the issuing authority (the local police) and the state police; the seller keeps a copy and the purchaser keeps a copy. Concealed carry permits (Waffenschein) are only rarely issued and are valid for no more than 2 years. A "justifiable need" must be shown, but the term is not defined. The local police chief must approve it. His approval is reviewed by the Court in the applicants county of residence.

For the Nazis, society was the end, individuals the means, and its whole life consisted in using individuals as instruments for its social ends. Individuals rights were only recognized in so far as they were implied in the rights of the state. The state was conceived as an absolute, in comparison with which all individuals or groups are relative, only to be conceived of in their relation to the state. The Nazi state was viewed as an embodied will to power and government. The Nazi's ruled under Police Power. The essential method of the police power is that of regulation, restriction, or prohibition, but not that of taking for public use. This power or means is used where the government does not desire ownership of anything, but wishes rather to control the conduct of individuals. Sometimes regulation is much easier when a license is required. Some courts here in America have held that the taking of a few dollars for licenses, the primary purpose not being revenue, is an exercise of the police power. The courts have held that where "regulation goes too far it will be recognized as a taking." In operation, it may be defined as the power of the state (government) to regulate the conduct of individuals to the point of complete prohibition of certain acts of conduct or even to the destruction of the things involved. This belief in the police power is the theory that animates a number of dictatorial and totalitarian regimes throughout the world today.

The Nazi Doctrine rejected the whole idea of democracy and representative government. Rules of morality do not apply to the state or to its workers when serving the state (absolute immunity). Fraud, treachery, torture, even murder, are right if committed in the interest of the state (Waco, Texas). The people, incapable of governing, must be led by an "elite," a group or party that is able to seize and to hold power. Freedom of speech, press, thought, and religion must not be permitted; they are foolish democratic ideas, like elections and representative government. The state is not simply a means to attain the welfare of men. Instead it uses men to achieve its higher purpose, and that purpose is nothing less than power, power and more power. To avoid war and seek peace is only democratic weakness. War is the very life of the state in Nazi doctrine. As strange as it may appear, Nazi ideas have been imported into the United States, and have found secret as well as open and avowed recruits among both ordinary American citizens and many elected officials. One need only look to Washington D.C., as well as to elected public servants in the Union States, where you can find many supporters of the Nazi Doctrine.

It is the database in Feinstien's bill that is the most worrisome - you register all gun owners and list their weapons...and then you go through the list and see what federal crimes you can charge them with.  Given the number and complexitiy of federal laws, it is almost a certainty that most people, at one time or another, are in violation...so, you get the knock at the door (very polite) and a summons...and find you are charged with violating this, that or the other provision of law and, hey, we're willing to plea bargain it down...just plead guilty to this minor felony and you'll get off with a small fine...and, of course, no longer be able to legally possess weapons because now you are a "convicted felon".  Never doubt that our domestic totalitarians are in it for the long game...they are willing to spend a decade or two at desrtoying our liberty.

Fortuantely, there isn't much chance of any gun control legislation passing any time soon - in fact, over in Republican precints there is a gigantic sigh of relief over this:  wondering how to regain political traction after November's defeat, GOPers never figured that the Democrts would want to re-fight the gun control battle.  But we must still remain alert - the gun registry item may be inserted in any manner of unrelated bill (especially bills relating to Defense of Homeland Security), with a mind to passing it quietly and before anyone notices.

While gun-grabbing is clearly a central part in the totalitarian plan to undo American liberty, I think we'll miss the mark if we don't understand that the primary threat to our liberty is the breakdown of the American family.  This has been a deliberate effort on the part of our Ruling Class because people who don't have families (and clubs and churches, etc) to sustain them become atomized, alienated and thus easily controlled by government.  People are starting to wake up to this - I overheard a conversation the other day among a few black men who were talking over how food stamps, et al, appear to have been set up with the purpose of wrecking the black family by driving black fathers away - but most are still just going along not noticing it.  Restoring the family is key to restoring American liberty - and this means taking a whack at no-fault divorce, the public school system and the utterly wretched state of our popular culture with its glorification of violence and sex and denigration of faith and family.

We are perched at the very precipice of tyranny, and most Americans still don't get it. Obama's legions of leeching lemmings are modern-day Esaus, willing to sell their birthright of liberty for a mess of entitlement pottage. They'll end up with neither!

October 2011 poll for MAIG that found 76 percent of Latinos supported Mexican style gun laws in the US. A poll in Mexico earlier this year found over 80% of Mexicans supported the banning of use of firearms in self-defense. Of course they all have ILLEGAL guns down there, I mean regular Mexicans not "Cartel" cuddlies.

Asians also support draconian gun laws in the US and black folks do also.

So how long before the Dems get their Majority? And add another supreme court appointment like Breyer, or Ginsberg or Kagan, the 3 Jewish Justices and a Sotomayor type, kiss it good-bye.

Strange.  I guess you hit the nail on the head when your post comes up in a search list, but is removed and not where or when it takes you.  To those that moved it, fuck you, you are the problem and the people know it.

Of course they want your guns... the cool ones and battle rifles. Please don't tread on my 40-round Mini-14 and AK74 magazines. They fit and they are fun to use. Reloading 5-round magazines is beyond tedious.

 

The gun and ammunition market is phenominal. Don't get left out in the cold! In most places you can still get a .22 rifle and 1000 rounds of ammo for around $200. This is an important price point. The local gun shops sell perfectly functional WWII bolt action rifles for $200 to $300 that will put a hole in just about anything. I just visited a shop with full racks of SKS and nice Mausers starting at $250.

Sorry Feinstein, the Bill of Rights and the 2nd amendment are nonnegotiable. http://nesaranews.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-bill-of-rights-is-not-negotiable.html

"Do they know what they're in for..." I think we ought to ask that. I can't conceive that they'll do a hard-core confrontation. That's not the way they do anything anymore. I think it basically comes down to this: "you are not in compliance with the tax code; as a tax cheat, we will take your money, accounts, property..." They don't want you in jail, they want your stuff and your submission. It's a very effective way to twist you into whatever they want.

I wonder if some gov algo is plowing through our musings right now?

Anybody with an IQ larger than a jackboot size already knows why governments like to disarm their populations. It has little to do with reducing citizen-on-citizen murder.

Since Dianne Feinstein is Jewish, someone should ask her if she thinks the Jews across Europe would have had a better chance of survival if they had not been disarmed by the Nazis.

Anyone got that scratchy throat cough that won't go away?  My super healthy never smoked or drank GF has had it for three weeks and can't shake it.  Now I'm getting it.  Fucking chemtrails have been a bitch in the NE lately.

Didn't read the article. Won't.

I searched it instead and found the words absent -

The American public can hardly be counted on to revolt when they are constantly distracted by crap.

It may happen, but not during prime time.

TONS of comments provoked by this hot button issue!

There can be no sane revolution in the USA. There can be utterly insane collapses into chaos. There cannot be anyone sanely planning for a violent revolution within the USA, since there is no sane way to plan for a violent revolution inside a country with an abundance of weapons of mass destruction.

Any real revolution might be triggered by the police/army getting insane enough orders that a significant number of them would refuse to obey enforcing those insane orders. If any significant groups within the police/army refuse to obey insane orders, then that would trigger a real revolution, since the chain of command would be fragmented. However, the moment that happens, then those who refused to obey insane orders would seize control of weapons of mass destruction.

Therefore, instantly, the entire "revolution" would be transported into the world of MAD ... Mutual Assured Destruction, being due to the credible threats having deterrent effects ... unless that broke down, through some additional insanities, piled on top of the orders which were insane enough to cause the chain of command to break in the first place.

Attempting to make ordinary weapons illegal for ordinary American people could create situations where attempts to enfoce that resulted in insane enough orders, for that to backfire badly. However, after such things happened, then the REALITY of there being an INSANE ABUNDANCE OF WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION WOULD EMERGE!

There has never been any coherent theory of how to fight a war with mass destruction weapons, and it is impossible to come up with any coherent theory regarding how to fight a violent revolution with those either. However, those weapons EXIST, and America is already inside of situations where there is irrconcilable social polarizations, since the government is controlled by criminals, who are destroying the lives of most ordinary Americans, and that is on a runaway path, automatically getting worse, faster ...

The social facts regarding the irreconcilable social polarizations, caused by runaway triumphant financial frauds, backed by force, actually controlling the USA, and actually planning to consolidate that system within America, and globally, are all driving us towards psychotic breakdowns of the established systems going for broke! However, there continues to be NO WAY TO IMAGINE ANY SANE VIOLENT REVOLUTION ... (which is why I believe there has not yet been any, since nobody who is still sane can plan and carry out any violent revolutions inside the USA today.)

Therefore, I agree that gun control efforts could trigger an insane violent "revolution" inside the USA. Since everything that matters is automatically getting worse, faster, ... psychotic social breakdowns seem inevitable ... HOWEVER, that only tips us over the edge, into MAD situations, where the revolutionaries gain control over weapons of mass destruction, and get to threaten the previous systems of social power with unimaginable consequences ...

I think that the USA must go through some kind of psychotic breakdowns, which will be initiated when sufficiently insane laws attempt to be enforced through sufficiently insane orders, that some significant groups of the police/army significantly refuse to obey those orders ... However, that is not going to enable anything else to emerge out of that collapse into chaos that becomes more sane, for as far into the future as one can see, since nothing can make weapons of mass destruction, trillions of times more powerful, become "sane" things within our current society.

Given that ALL the gunpowder weapons in America combined, even hundreds of millions of them, and all their gunpowder ammunition, are practically NOTHING compared to weapons of mass destruction. Our entire society is sleepwalking through systems of morbid social habits, which pretend that gunpowder weapons are sane, when they no longer are, because NOTHING is sane, after weapons which are trillions of times more powerful EXIST!!!

The intellectual Second American Revolution should follow a Second Enlightenment, based on radically different paradigms regarding militarism, and death controls ... However, so far, almost NOBODY, and certainly not enough enough Americans, have any sane ways to respond to the existence of weapons of mass destruction. We have simply been on autopilot cruise control, developing more and better MADnesses, in ways which simply amplified how totally INSANE the global systems of eletronic fiat money frauds, backed by the threats of force through the use of weapons of mass destruction have become ...

Of course, the international banksters want to destroy the American democratic republic, in order to impose a global government that consolidates those banksters' dominance of the whole world, through controlling the whole world's money supplies, as debts, made out of nothing, that everyone else is forced to accept! Of course, the international banksters that control the puppet politicians want to disarm the masses of muppets, in order to have impunity to continue to rob and murder those muppets. However, all of that is just more and more runway social insanity, headed towards psychotic breakdowns. I believe those breakdown points must happen. However, I do not believe that they could be sanely constructive, for all the reasons I repeated above.
