People need to read this post I found on another forum and think a little about the possibilities:

******

I remember a time, back in 1986 (ah, what innocent times they were) when lulled into happy gun buying days that we were awash in “assault” weapons. So many types and models to pick from, it was simply grand! And one could buy a parts kit, do your paperwork and POOF, you had a real select-fire toy with the blessing of Uncle Sam.

But then a dark cloud came: the Firearms Owners Protection Act (FOPA). {Hey, on PAFOA talking about FOPA, life is funny} Manufacturers and parts kit sellers were scared, but most of us were unaware (internet, where?). The law was passed, a deadline for paperwork set, and by the time we heard of it, it was too late. Those who knew, and had plenty of stock, packed it in deep and didn’t talk. They knew what they had, knew it was great: knew the future prices they would reap. 30 days was all we had, to get papers together or be very sad.

Shortly after the law had passed, there came a knocking and it was steadfast. “Where’s the parts kits? Where’s the tubes? We know you were buying STENS, we’re not rubes!” The agents were cranky and I was getting hot. “How did you find me & what’s this about?” I blurted out, surprised and startled to be found out. “We have a list, your names on it. We went to all the places who’ve sold the parts, got a court order and finding you people out. So hand over the parts, the guns and the tubes, or your coming with us with some ‘splain to do.”

Flustered and miffed at all of this shi*, I told them to wait and listen to this: “What do you take me as a fool? I wear a uniform just like you, but mine is green and yours is blue. You changed the laws and I wasn’t even here, I was in Germany drinking beer! Sure, I bought some junky old gun parts, paid real cheap to some old farts. But have them no more, gone they are, sold and foregotten to some other soldier in a German bar.” And so thursting a copy of my Orders in his paw, I bid the Agents to go back to their car. Went away they did, but it bothers me still, to this day it does. It was the beast I saw, a government to fear. I know now that they will hunt us down, even if it takes them years.

The moral of the story is plainly clear: “Uncle” isn’t your relative and he isn’t dear. He’s Big Brother and a bad mother and something to fear. Times have changed since ‘86: “Uncle” is bolder, colder and now carries the big stick of Homeland Security to hit you with. I was serving this country, and was easily found: I did nothing wrong but they still hunted me down. Be cautious and aware, for this is a new age: everything you bought, they already know about. Should the laws change, they’ll be at your door, wanting to know if you have your stuff anymore.

“What will we do, what will we do?” To that question I have no clue. The answer is not up to me.....it’s up to YOU...

I’ve asked the AMs to remove my identical post, from 7:37:09 AM, in Breaking News and consolidate everything here. Great minds...

Ironic that this will be introduced on the same day that the government authorized the murder of 52 million (and counting) babies.

Now they want to criminalize us. Or what, kill us too?

Personally, I will not cower or cave. I will not bury what I have. When they come to my door, I will tell them to come back with a warrant. When they come with the warrant, I’ll refuse to open the safe and they’ll have to cut out the foundation of my home to take it away.

There’s a lot of rhetoric and hyperbole in all of this. Come what may, I’ll say it again: My soul is prepared. I will fight for my freedom, even if it means a swift death at the hands of Obama’s storm troopers. I will not live on my knees.

In a time of lawlessness, the most useless thing next to a lawyer is a politician.

Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Fienstien, the news media.

What is the common denominator here? they are all democrats.

democrats want to make the government all powerful and at the same time take every one of our individual rights and freedom. Democrats want the government to own everything ( that's called socialism).Everything democrats do is to empower government and at the same time dis-empower the individual. the individual is small and already powerless and the government is so huge and powerful and idiot democrats think the government needs to be made bigger and more powerful. wtf is wrong with these idiots?

When will we realize that the threat to our freedom and survival is the democrat party?
