Nearly every time throughout history, after the licensing of gun owners and registration of firearms have led to and resulted in confiscation.
The question is, could it happen in the United States of America?
Answer: Yes, if enough people like this one (below) vote for politicians of a similar persuasion and agenda.
After watching the short interview segment – don’t laugh, because this man is serious, and there are MANY like him. It is quite interesting to ‘see’ his psychology in that he BELIEVES that not only should we ban and confiscate all firearms, but kitchen knives (and all knives) too. Not only that, but he believes that we should ban nails – and obviously anything which he believes could harm another man.
His fatal flaw (in his thinking – in my opinion) is this…
While his motivations are for peace, love, and understanding, what he fails to realize is that among a human’s many traits and characteristics, one of them is EVIL. There IS evil in this world – it is sadly part of our human nature. It is fundamentally wrong to confiscate the tools of an individual which could be used to protect against and combat evil.
The assaults on our fundamental rights of liberty have been relentless – especially these last few years. With the ongoing attacks on our 2nd-Ammendment (and 4th-Ammendment) rights, it is looking more and more like we could lose, unless we fight back relentlessly.
What if confiscation became a reality here in the United States?
Look what’s happening in Connecticut… It’s not just CT, it’s happening on many fronts and in many states. While attempts to further restrict our 2nd-Ammendment rights flare up following any media-circus shooting, the fact is that the current political climate in Washington and in many state legislatures has been tipped in the favor of ‘progressive’ socialism.
Our normalcy bias may make it hard to imagine Americans being hauled away to prison for refusing to relinquish their rights under the Constitution, but we are getting closer each and every day.
Do you have one too many rounds in your firearm? It’s off to jail for you.
Do you have a particular model firearm that ‘looks’ scary? It’s off to jail for you.
Etc.. Ad Nauseam…
By refusing to comply with these newly enacted laws (e.g. CT) – albeit unconstitutional – you will have become felons overnight.
By ignoring what is happening throughout the country in this regard – even though it may not affect you directly – will eventually result in your own peril when an overreaching government rips away your liberty.
The United States is the only country in the world founded on individual liberty – that ‘we the people’ are more important than the state. We have drifted away from this principle during the past 50 years or so, and it is unclear whether or not we will ever get back. Presently, it looks doubtful.
There will come a point in time when the straw will break and when those who love liberty will have been pushed too far. The result will be the potentially violent clashing of two fundamental mindsets – socialism versus individual liberty, and it won’t be pretty. Let’s do our best to stop the coming civil war and resist further government overreach by taking action – saying something – doing something about it. Get involved. It’s YOUR freedoms at stake…
After invading, Nazis used pre-war lists of gun owners to confiscate firearms, and many gun owners simply disappeared. Following confiscation, the Nazis were free to wreak their evil on the disarmed populace. It happened right under the nose of German citizens. What makes us think IT CAN’T HAPPEN IN AMERICA?
