Skip to comments.Gun Confiscation in Ten Easy Steps
Posted on 01/02/2013 5:02:30 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
All the time fellow gun owners say things to me like, Seriously, Steve, how would they possibly gather up all the hundreds of millions of guns that are out there?
Well my naïve friend, let me tell you how it works.
Step 1: Create an anti-gun culture and make guns and gun owners the bad guys at every turn:
On the evening news, every time a crime is reported, make sure there is a picture of a mean looking gun next to the chalk outline of a body. Portray hunters and sportsmen as backwoods unsophisticated hillbillies and rednecks. Feminize the society, especially the males. Create a culture where the police* are revered as heroes whose intentions can never be questioned. Demonize war and warriors. Label gun organizations crazed lunatics and unreasonable extremists. Make shooting restrictive by forcing participants to private ranges, then close the ranges by legal means citing reasons of safety, nuisance, environmental, or whatever possible.
Create terms like assault weapon, high-powered sniper rifle, guns off the streets, weapons of war when engaging in the gun debate making ordinary guns out to have extraordinary functions. Build on this disinformation by using movies, gaming, and entertainment that creates the falsehood that guns are capable of doing impossible things like firing hundreds of times without reloading or overheating or blowing up a cars gas tank with the strike of a bullet.
Step 2: Build security systems that make the sheeple feel safe, giving them a false sense of security and overdependence on police and government authority while at the same time disarming them.
Establish gun free zones. Install security cameras everywhere. Place roving security cars with strobes in mall parking lots. Create neighborhood watch programs under the careful supervision of law enforcement insisting that no one be armed...

That is all fine, but they still need to get rid of that pesky 2Amd.
Illinois is right now trying to push thru 2 bills, tonite, about banning guns., by the lame duck session!
Given the gun buying frenzy the last 4 years by Americans, I’d say all the noise is comming from the chattering class.
Who interprets the 2nd Amendment? The Supreme Court. One appointment by Obama can change the current 5-4 favoring gun rights into 5-4 denying them.
Who obeys the supreme court?
Hell, I can't find all of my firearms here in the house, that's why the grandkids can't visit until they get their training.
I've got bricks of .22 long rifle as bookends for reloading notebooks.
And I'm just a cook. Lots more out there with lots more than I have.
Yes, go ahead and ban them and demand that I register what I own. Ive got a closet full of nothing left to lose and several dont give a damn suitcases to pack it in.
When this starts, Ill not wait for them to come to me.

No, in the end, WE interpret the 2A. The arms are in our hands, and we can read the BOR without needing five of nine black robed legal gurus to interpret it for us.
This is my interpretation: any arms, ammo or mags legal in 2012 will be legal forever. Any laws passed that they claim will make them illegal, I will not recognize or obey, including laws mandating registration, banning private transfers, etc.
This is the hill to fight on. Otherwise, we are on the road to eventual democide.
The last few seconds are priceless!
Make all gun owners the bad guys. That is silly. Everyone of those gun owners are fathers mothers, brothers sisters uncles aunts etc. Veterans, former LEO, Fireman, Paramedics.
Most of that crap has already been tried, and Americans have responded by buying firearms and ammunition in record amounts. We are completely overrunning the left on this issue and they are squealing like pigs.
I’ve been giving a lot of thought to this scenerio, as have others. The govt may be able to create control zones in large cities, but it won’t work in smaller towns and rural areas, for a number of reasons.
So, if this comes to pass, I believe the conflict will have to be taken to the large, blue urban areas.
That’s it. Just a little static we need to tune out. A little “snow” in the picture!
Besides,I will have my guns as long as I am alive, and I won’t need ‘em after that. ( I would like to leave them to my daughter, though)
But 80 or so million of us can change that to a 0-0 decision, if we have to.
That's pretty naive of you. All that is required is 1 more conservative on the court to retire or die. Then Obama puts someone like Sotomayor on the court who believes the 2nd amendment applies to the National Guard and not the individual. The application of the 2nd is determined by who interprets the 2nd. Remember, there was a time when blacks were 3/5th of a person. In recent times, the court has found it constitutional to kill a baby.
They don't have to be correct in how they interpret the constitution...it becomes law none-the-less.
I can’t deal with this HS. Just came back from Best Buy and I’m gonna play my New copy of “Call of Duty Black Ops”.
Aaaaaaaand that bottle Duckhorn is going to get emptied.
Bricks of .22’s for bookends. I likey.
I should use my 308’s for that.
Oh wait, I can’t read ......
When about one out of three Americans owns a gun I would say they aren't making much headway on step #1. lol
I’ll bring scotch and more ammo than I can carry.
These plicks are forcing me buy stuff I don’t even want right now.
So he made a call, and said he'd give me a good price on 2 cases, and to come back next week to pick them up.
I never thought to ask how many were in a case, at the time.
I've got .22LR for the rest of my natural life.
The car sagged taking those two cases home.
You do realize that that was agreed to in order to deprive the slave owning states from claiming excessive power through inflated congressional representation don't you?
That's where we are headed with the 2nd. The USSC will say it doesn't mean what the framers and 200 years of court decisions says it means...that all of that was wrong...and it's not unconstitutional for the federal government to seize weapons from citizens.
That's the point when EVERYONE (gun owner or not) will have to make a choice: Obey the "new" law of the land...or fight. I've already began to purge myself of liberal friends and family...because I know the day is coming for the choice to be made...and I would rather not have to "fight" someone I am close with. I would rather sever the relationship now...and thus not have any hesitations later.
The only thing ridiculous and false about it was to consider slaves as any kind of citizen. It is also false that it was a USSC decision. It was not.
5000 in a case of 22lr 2 cases hardly enough to sag a car.
I think my 2 chilhdren went through 20 thousands rounds or so from the time they were 12 to 18
I guess if 70lbs would cause your car to sag.
Second Amendment - Pshaw! - Obama & buds intend to render the whole Constitution, “that old rag”, totally irrelevant.
How did Adolph Hitler get rid of all the guns in Germany in a fairly short time?
2 bags of groceries gave it a little sink.
The Supreme Court? How many divisions do they have?
Slavery was once the law of the land. If the scotus said slavery was legal again by 5/4, based on their new interpret ion of the 14A, do you think blacks would agree?
Scotus can claim the moon is made of cheese, will you agree with them?
How about if one or more supremes is blackmailed, such as a secretly gay one (Roberts) over Obamacare?
Are you saying that no matter what 5/9 supremes decide on any issue, we must obey?
Dred Scott, for example?
Once we are disarmed, any future turn to tyranny will result in democide. Once disarmed, old greedy white bitter clingers can be rounded up and exterminated as easily as the disarmed Armenians, Kulaks, Jews etc.
Nope, I am not willing to trust in the eternal benevolence of future govts. I can read the 2A without help from 5/9 supremes. I will fight on this hill: any arms or ammo legal to own in 2012 will be legal to own by my own reading of the 2A forever.
If Congress and scotus say otherwise, then they will have to send armed goons to disarm me, the hard way. And I will consider those armed goons to be traitors, and will treat them as such.
He did not. It was a drawn out affair done in stages beginning with gun registration in the early 1920s under the Weimar govts.
That is why national registration must be resisted: it means govt permission to own guns, and class by class, they take away the most effective arms. Also happened in Armenia, the USSR, etc.
See... there's the problem with that whole process.
They'll need to bring a lunch.
My ex-girlfriend's daughter, the one that I taught to shoot while her mom was deployed, and who later worked for me.... she might not be ok with all of that. And she is scarey smart.
She just graduated as an oilfield engineer of some kind. I wish the left good luck keeping her in chains, they'll need it.
Anyway...the USSC has a list of decisions that I think we would both agree are bad and wrong...most recently the Obama-care decision. I anticipate two far left justices like the two hags he's already put on the court...and I anticipate another bad, faulty ruling concerning the 2nd.
Do not wish them luck. Wish that they find salvation before they die. It will do them a lot more good, and we can use the luck.
Glad you taught a good one to shoot.
To put any of us in chains or into boxcars, first they need to disarm us.
I can read the 2A without help. They want to disarm me, under any pretext or under color of law, it will have to be done the hard way.
This is the hill to fight on. Any guns legally owned in 2012 will remain so, no matter what 5/9 legal gurus have to say about it.
I can read the BOR, and I have read plenty of history.
Absolutely! No question about that. However, the most recent SCOTUS decision (AFAIK most recent) regarding the 2nd Amendment was one of the strongest affirmations of the RKBA there has ever been. That was the one concerning the right to carry in DC.
You da man. Seriously. I hope we all get after it!
Can’t read? Doesn’t matter. You can get a few books cheap at yard sales.
Other Federal Courts. State Courts. County Courts. City Courts. Prosecutors. Law Enforcement Officers. Prison Guards.
If you want to go down that road, do it with your eyes open.
