Skip to comments.Buchanan: "There Would Be A Revolution" If Government Confiscated Weapons (video)
Posted on 01/05/2013 5:07:22 PM PST by i88schwartz
PAT BUCHANAN: There are three million ArmaLite rifles, those Bushmaster types, out there right now. And people are buying them like hotcakes, every gun show the sales are up enormously. Forty-one percent, they were up in December -- for last December, which was a record year. John, what is common though, Eleanor [Clift] is correct, the push is going to come on three things. Grandfather in the assault weapons that are here now, to try to outlaw assault weapons, outlaw magazines that carry more than 11 or 12 bullets, and also background checks at gun shows.
JOHN MCLAUGHLIN: With no Second Amendment, Congress could pass a law, as limited as this: banning assault rifles or as sweeping as prohibiting all private firearm ownership and requiring the surrender of all privately held firearms.
BUCHANAN: There would be a revolution in this country!
MCLAUGHLIN: Baloney! That doesn't mean you can't own one, but you have to put it in first and then go try --
BUCHANAN: There are 270 million guns in this country right now, John, and there adding to them at a rate of 16 million a year.

Right. Perhaps I missed something, but we do have a Second Amendment and should be no less willing for it to disappear or to be disregarded than any of the others.
So what's the point?
The Administration leaked the outline of its plans to the Washington Post. Obama wants a comprehensive law which he is not likely to get from the House. He no doubt will rage against the Republicans, the NRA and the TEA party and test the constitutional limit of executive orders. This will set an interesting tone for the upcoming debate concerning the debt ceiling.
From my cold dead hands....are you listening Obama?
I think it was Levin who said that the Revolutionary War wasn’t fought because the British were wanting us to give up our DEER rifles
What will people like Elinore Clift do when they push too far and things break loose?
Do they understand what they are doing?
There are more AR-15 type rifles in public hands in the last thirty years than 30-30 Winchesters in the last 110 years.
As long as "The People" are given the unfettered ability to copulate, drink and drug themselves, evacuate their bowels, snore and attend the games there shall be no revolution if guns are seized.
“The British people gave up their guns. The Aussies gave up their guns.”
“Why won’t the American people give up their guns?”
Because we aren’t British or Aussies.
what in the hell does that mean?
“”MCLAUGHLIN: Baloney! That doesn’t mean you can’t own one, but you have to put it in first and then go try — “”
I have no idea what he was going to say here - “put it in first then go try” what? Pat interrupted him and the sentence was never finished. PUT WHAT WHERE?
There is a totally different mood in the country now than when the assault gun law was passed.
I had four brand new Colt H-Bars plus a few others such as HK-91, Egyptian Maadi, and Chinese Poly-darn can’t remember the rest of the word, but they were one of the best AK styles out there.
I was in grad school and needed money. I literally could not sell them without reducing the price to near wholesale.
Now it is a new world. I noticed two gun sellers near here which had an abundance of AR’s of various makes. I checked them both today and they are all sold out. Nothing like that happened before and there hasn’t even been a law passed.
I will say I loaded up on high capacity mags after the last ban sunset ted. I am not going to be caught short again.
If foreign nationals do not have to comply with our immigration laws, I sure as hell don’t see Americans complying with the Democrats’ “gun control” laws. It just isn’t going to happen.
The fact that they are still talking about gun control, in the face of all the guns purchased - even recently - just tells me that they are going to do something REALLY bad.
They should have backed off by now.
Hey Pat, do me favor, just go away!
I don't know how compliance fared in Britain but in Australia, it was pretty dismal. 680,000 weapons turned in out of 2.8 million firearms authorities estimated fell under Australia's ban.
Pat is one of the few who are standing up for us so Pat please do not go away.
