I have talked to several that own guns in the past weeks and passed on to them information as to what is going on in Washington and how their weapons will probably be confiscated. Most of them don’t like the thought of that, but what will they do about it? Most will do what they do about most things, gripe and moan a little and will then do little else.
In recent months I have talked with only one man who was concerned enough to take action. He made copies of the material I gave him and passed them along to his friends in an adjoining parish who he felt could contact legislators and get some reaction from them. Most others think the potential Obama gun confiscation is just terrible but they have or will do nothing to prevent it. Our public education system has dumbed them down to the point where they do not any longer know how to write a letter to the editor of their local paper or to their “elected representatives” telling them they want them to stand against this assault on the Second Amendment. The educrats knew what they were doing when they purposely dumbed the kids down—they were silencing any future opposition to Big Brother and they have done a masterful job of it.
An article on http://www.gunsamerica.com recently stated: “This week the media is trying to convince us that support for Diane Feinstein’s anti-gun legislation is weak, but if we are not PRO-ACTIVE, the legislation will pass as written. You will wake up just in time for…new laws that make your AR-15 a Class 3 weapon. This means that if you want to keep your tactical rifles, you will have to register them, pay a $5-$200 tax, and notify the government if you intend to take them out of state. You will also completely waive your 4th Amendment rights to reasonable search and seizure. ATF will have the right to knock on your door and inspect the weapons anytime they want…This isn’t a threat. It isn’t political posturing. Diane Feinstein and the anti-gun machine have already introduced the legislation, and it will be rammed through Congress and signed by the President if we do not stand As One and act today.”
This article exhorts gun owners to contact their legislators immediately. It also exhorts you to contact all of the gun companies that you’ve done business with and ask them to take some action. The article notes: “All of them (gun companies) have mail lists, and all of them are sitting on them pretending they don’t have any responsibility, while doing record business in the stuff that is going to be banned or regulated.” The Second Amendment is about more than making record gun sales. It is about people being able to protect themselves from a tyrannical government. Our “elected representatives” need to hear from us and know that if they waffle on this issue we will work to defeat them in their next election bid.
You can bet the farm that those in the anti-gun lobby are contacting Senate and House members, telling them that the voters will not really care if they vote for the evisceration of the Second Amendment, so just go ahead and take away the guns—it’s for the children you know. Of course all that is hogwash. The anti-gun people couldn’t care less about the kids, but they do care about power and influence to push their agenda. And right now they have a man in the White (Red) House who is just salivating to do what they want so he can consolidate his own power and that of those who are his handlers. So all gun owners and those in the sporting goods business where they sell guns need to contact your legislators in Washington. They need to know in no uncertain terms that the voting and gun-owning public is ticked off and this gun-grabbing attempt.
The article ends with this: “Diane Feinstein doesn’t care how much survival food you have in your bunker. But what she does have is the actual power to halt the production of an entire class of firearms and magazines, and she plans to do that this week. Get out of your armchair and get into action.” As to how much survival food you have in your bunker, if you don’t have the firearms to defend it, will it really matter? Someone from the government or the gangs (is there much difference?) will come by shortly to relieve you of it if you have no guns.
So please get out there and at least try to do something. The guns you save may be your own.
