Americans are too smart for gun control: History of restriction is one of utter failure
The Washington Times ^ | January 10, 2013 | Dr. Michael S. Brown

Posted on 01/10/2013 9:58:24 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

In the wake of the December school shooting in Newtown, Conn., politicians and journalists who hate to see guns in the hands of ordinary citizens turned into a raving mob who sensed that victory over their enemies was near.

Reality is now starting to set in. There are several reasons why we probably won’t see any new laws and certainly no laws that will prevent school attacks. The first reason is that the American people are now seeing the hypocrisy and dishonesty of the anti-gun lobby.

For years, we have been promised that President Obama and his party would never move against lawful gun owners. Now that he is not facing any more elections, the promise is forgotten. Who doubts that this was the plan all along?

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat, is about to introduce the most restrictive weapons ban in American history. Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York has said that confiscation may be an option. New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is apoplectic at the thought of revolting peasants out there he can’t control. All of these politicians are protected by armed guards who can use any guns they wish, but they don’t think the public merits the same privileges.

In NBC’s Washington studio, “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory, while criticizing the National Rifle Association proposal to put armed guards in schools, displayed a 30-round magazine that is prohibited in the District of Columbia. As a member of the media elite, he will never spend a day in jail. It was also revealed that he sends his children to a school that is protected by armed guards. Guns for me, but not for thee...

They perhaps believe that their narrow margin of victory in the last presidential election (in which a slim majority of questionable validity) established a mandate by which an inelligible usurper could dictate modifications to Natural Rights...

Then they are completely and wholly mistaken.

Remember: Adolf Hitler and the Nazis were asked to join the government based on election results, they did not stage a coup de etat.

Confiscating guns enables tyranny.

None of it should have been possible or ever happen... yet it has.

Indeed. The establishment thought they could co-opt the energy of the up-and-comer.

Kinda like the Clintons and Obama.

Kinda like the GOP and the Tea Party.

How might constitutionally indefensible federal Obamacare affect the usage of the listed drugs? I noticed that you can get generic Prozac over the counter.

Smart enough?..... Bulls**t. And that brand of lunacy is why
we are stuck with the commie narcissist in chief for a second
tour of hell. The average person in modern america is stupid
as a sack of hammers. If they weren’t we wouldn’t be afflicted
with POS’s like Pelosi, Fineswine, Reid etc.

Mysterious death during gun control debate raises questions

John Noveske wasn't the first prominent gun rights supporter to be killed in the last few days. Keith Ratliff, the creator of a super-popular YouTube channel featuring videos of exotic weapons, was also recently found dead.

The Daily Mail reports that Ratliff was "discovered on a rural road in Carnesville, Georgia. Ratliff had a single gunshot wound the head and police are treating his death as a homicide."

Someone murdered Ratliff, in other words, and it had to be someone with the ability to get close enough to Ratliff to take him out without warning.
...
Steve Quayle, creator of SteveQuayle.com, says "the red list is on!" This refers to the so-called "red list" -- a secret kill list of Americans authorized by Obama and designed to be invoked immediately before an attempted radical leftist takeover of the nation. In support of this theory, Obama himself actually signed into law the NDAA which authorizes secret assassinations of U.S. citizens on U.S. soil.

Instead of the red list being "conspiracy theory," it appears to be a key component of Obama's domestic policy.

This is why 0bama blitzed to use the dead children as political pawns even before they were buried.

From the TEXAS Declaration of Independence from Mexico..

http://avalon.law.yale.edu/19th_century/texdec.asp

“It has demanded us to deliver up our arms, which are essential to our defence, the rightful property of freemen, and formidable only to tyrannical governments.”

THE RIGHTFUL PROPERTY OF FREEMEN! Even Texas understood it!

Americans elected Barack Hussain Obama to be President. Twice.

There might be some 40- or 50-million idiots, however ...

Pew Research just recently reported 24 million bogus voter registrations were used in the 2012 elections, 2.7 million dead voters, and a couple million people voted in multiple states.

That, on top of massive electronic vote switching, adding, and deleting.

I don't believe the commie pissant muslim homo won either 2008 or 2012 legitimately.

I think that the author is hopelessly optimistic on crack if he thinks the left won't get something with either new laws or EOs.

He needs to crawl out from under his rock and realize that a war against a large swath of US citizenry is on.
