Thanks! It just occurred to me that with all the back & forth about `assault weapons’ and now talk of handgun bans that “the elephant in the room” for gungrabbers is all those deer hunters wielding rifles with effective ranges of 500 yards or more. As well as their stalking skills which ensure a successful hunt.

Some of the later posts mention this. I will attempt to illustrate by combining quotes by Admiral Yamamoto:

“I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant, and there will soon be a rifle behind every blade of grass, filled with a terrible resolve.”

Could you define for me the expression “going Galt”?

I know it’s from Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand & has to do with the individual disengaging from government power, but it’s used here a lot on FReepers.

I don't know, morale is very important in a scenario such as this. If Larry the first year ATF agent comes in to work and finds out that his buddy Curly was killed when a bunch of patriots busted into his house and shot him in his underwear and his other buddy Moe was shot and killed with several other agents who were drinking at the local bar. Then odds are Larry who has a wife and baby to think about is going to seriously consider looking for a safer line of work or at least ask for a transfer to the tobacco unit.
It looks like someone read 'Unintended Consequences' and remembered its lessons.

I intend to look into the reading list posted above. Only for academic purposes of course.

Obama’s gun-control weapon: Psychiatrists

Background check system could disqualify those with ‘mental illness’

Published: 01/10/2013 at 8:34 PM

Taylor Rose is a Washington, D.C., staff reporter for WND.

As a means to enforce gun confiscation and reduce gun ownership, Hammond believes Obama could order the “expansion” of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System.

Also known as the Brady Check, the system is designed to filter those who can purchase weapons by disqualifying prospective firearms customers if they suffer from a mental illness or some other factor that could deem them unable to own a firearm.

Hammond says that the final decision under NICS for determining who is capable of owning a firearm is a “government psychiatrist.”

Gun Confiscation By Presidential Decree?
January 10, 2013 By Matthew Vadum

“In normal times the prospect of gun confiscation might be next to nil, the stuff of conspiracy theories, but in the age of Obama so many bad things seem possible. With the country in a sour mood, the economy stuck in a ditch, and a transformational Marxist in the White House, terrible outcomes that previously appeared farfetched now could become possible.

Consider that Obama is a devout ideologue who deep down doesn’t believe Americans should be allowed to own guns. He’s a longtime supporter of gun confiscation but when he began running for president he began claiming to be a supporter of the Second Amendment in order not to scare away moderate voters.”

Gun Confiscation — Nugent: Obama’s Gun-Control Plans Psychotic

Rock legend and gun-rights activist Ted Nugent took the Obama administration to task Sunday evening for pledging to make gun control a priority, telling a radio host the president’s plans are practically “psychotic.”

“A person who lives by logic and studies history and tries to implement the lessons learned by history cannot begin to rationally explain the conduct of this president or his attorney general or this administration,” Nugent said. “It is psychotic, it is crazy, it is illogical.”

As Obama’s Anti-gun Agenda Emerges, Republican Threatens Impeachment
Written by Alex Newman

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), for example, warned that if Obama tried to adopt gun control by executive order, Congress could be forced to consider impeachment. “The very purpose of the Second Amendment is to stop the government from disallowing people the means to defend themselves against tyranny,” he explained. “Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible.”

Obama’s threats are literally an assault on the foundation of America, Stockman continued. “If the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist,” he said Monday. “I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment.”

I have already decided MY course of action. I will KILL at LEAST 3 of their “agents” before they will kill me. My order of Killing:
1. ANY Federal Agent
2. ANY City “Policeman(hireling)
3. ANY US/UN “Military””Officer”
4. ANY US/UN “Military””NCO/Petty Officer(they SHOULD know better)”

You are thinking too small.

The statists will be threatening to send JBTs to our homes to confiscate our weapons. The FedGov would not be trying to confiscate weapons without the cheerleaders in the Democrat Party (including those at the city and State level), the MSM, and the leaders of the so called charitable organizations who push the statist agenda.

They and their offices and their homes deserve at least some attention.

“When They Come For Your Guns, You Will Turn Them Over”

No, I won’t. I don’t have investments I’m hoping to realize, I don’t have any screaming kids who have to be fed, no significant other and nothing to lose by resisting to the best of my ability, effective or not.

We do need to go on a pro-constitution binge and demilitarize the US government. It took the war on terror power and turned it against America.

Rand Paul would be a good one to do that.

It may possibly happen some places (NY, NJ), but not most places.

Hypothetically, even if they confiscated every gun, a gun is not the only way to make a tyrant, or agents of tyranny bleed.

Exactly. Heck, even the Mujahedin learned to target the Soviets with the red star on their helmets.

And this scenario only supposes that they come for us at home. If they start rounding up gun owners, most of us will be in the wind within a half hour of the word going out. Things will get "exciting" after that...

Unlike the German Fascists of the 1940s, our infrastructure is a LOT more delicate...

And nowadays, people are just fracking sissies if they ain't got their lectricity n fast food n grocery stores.
