The BATFE will not be defunded. Pubbies may run the House but the Dims run the Senate. Harry Reid has not let a Budget pass in over three years so we have been running on Continuing Resolutions, CRs, for almost all of Obama's first term.
Since there will probably be no Budget for the next four years the House and Senate will have to fight over the CRs and since the Pubbies have no spine they will not let the Government shut down over this subject. The Dems will not allow a CR through unless the BATFE is fully funded. They know it is the linchpin to the Communist takeover of our Country. The Pubbies will allow the final evisceration of our Constitution by the Communists in the White House and Senate so they will not be painted as the bad guys if the Government shuts down.
It is time for the gun shops, manufacterors, and every real patriot to say "NO" and keep making, producing and selling the guns and ammo and refuse to collect the huge taxes that are sure to come. When the BATFE or IRS agents come to shut them down WE need to literally stand side by side, in the hundreds if not thousands,to stop them at each location. There are not enough Brown Shirts in the BATFE or IRS to stop FREE CITIZENS and they would like to go home to their families.
"And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward." Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn - The Gulag Archipelago
They really have NO idea how many of them will not get home to see the wife and kids if they try to enforce this.
Once blood is shed, and the dice are rolled, it will end very badly for the tyrants.
When (color of)law-abiding people realize they've crossed the Rubicon, there is nothing that stops them from going ALL the way.
Many, many traitors will be found swinging from lamp posts.
Many on our side will 'water' the tree of liberty too, but the tyrant class will be eliminated for at least a generation.
