Skip to comments.The disarming of America (mega-barf, fascism is here)

Now, how would one disarm the American population? First of all, federal or state laws would need to make it a crime punishable by a $1,000 fine and one year in prison per weapon to possess a firearm......
The disarmament process would begin after the initial three-month amnesty......
Special squads of police would be formed and trained to carry out the work. Then, on a random basis to permit no advance warning, city blocks and stretches of suburban and rural areas would be cordoned off and searches carried out in every business, dwelling, and empty building. All firearms would be seized. The owners of weapons found in the searches would be prosecuted: $1,000 and one year in prison for each firearm. Clearly, since such sweeps could not take place all across the country at the same time. But fairly quickly there would begin to be gun-swept, gun-free areas where there should be no firearms. If there were, those carrying them would be subject to quick confiscation and prosecution. On the streets it would be a question of stop-and-search of anyone, even grandma with her walker, with the same penalties for "carrying."

Simpson appears to be quite serious, or maybe he is just trying to illustrate what it would take to actually "ban guns" as many liberals and other control freaks so blithely demand. Even the most intrusive search could not find all the guns or ammunition and many of those that were not found would be used against the totalitarian authorities and media shills who had instigated the inquisition in the first place.
oh please they could take them all tomorrow
the mexicans will start packing ak47 along their cocaine shipments
it would just ad their business offerings by including highly price and fully automatic weapon systems
He’s a retired diplomat...and a moron.
Nomenclature has already been used...
Come try it at my house Danny boy.
But if it ever comes to this, I'll try very hard not to harm some poor flatfoot cop. I plan to get to people like Danny boy here who thought this crap up.
This guy is high on crack or meth. This is pure fantasy because he fails to account for how many law enforcemnt officers would actually do this and how many would be killed trying. He also fails to mention how they would address taking guns from protected classes of people.....ie everyone except white men. Finally he does not address how we would get to that situation in the first place, how the Congress, state legislatures or courts would allow such a thing to happen.
I have a better idea. Take his whole article and delete the word “gun” and insert the word “liberal” and now you have a good cause and millions ready to participate in the round up.
I’ve heard more credible utopian schemes from drunks in bars.
delete the word gun and insert the word liberal
I agree, when do we start rounding them up?
Vigorous debate... LOL .... yeah ... I'd call that vigorous.... kind of like the vigorous debate we had with Germany and Japan during the 40's.
I tried to read this but it was too stupid and boring.
All this debate recently caused me to go out and buy more “high cap mags” for me Glock.
What a disaster this would be if someone ever tried to follow through on something like what is being described.
Dan boy is not only stupid he's crushingly ignorant as well. Apparently he never heard of the Warsaw ghetto, and how a few armed jews held off the Nazi army for months. Although there are plenty of bedwetters in NY and Ma who would go along with it I suspect police, and their bureaucratting and political master would start dying in large quantities in the rest of the country if this nonsense started.
Further, I'm sure there are patriots out there making a list similar to the Koko's of "people who won't be missed" for when the stuff hits the fan. I'd guess that this jerk just got added to a couple of lists.
I don't want to give them any ideas, so I hope they aren't listening: But, if I was out to confiscate guns, I'd start by selecting activist judges and legislating from the bench, at all court levels. I'd also try to get huge blocks of voters to keep me and my gun-grabbing buddies in power - like unions, like those that bow to the great religions (aka, Global Warming god, PBUH). And then, I'd just ignore chunks of the Constitution as well as amendments to the Constitution.
I guess that's how I'd go about it, but that's just me...
I on the other hand will try very hard to end anyone who would take part in this from the JBT's and their bosses to the media covering it to filth like Simpson. Germany lost the Battle of Britain because it switched from tactical targets - airfields - to strategic targets - London.
I guess this guy has never heard of the 4th Amendment.
They did it in NOLA and they did it in Montgomery Country during the DC Sniper fiasco.
Checking for Scrappleface or Onion headline...you mean this is SERIOUS?
