Buchanan: "There Would Be A Revolution" If Government Confiscated Weapons (video)
RealClearPolitics ^ | January 5, 2013 | RealClearPolitics

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.

Ben Franklin testimony against the stamp act.

Q. If the Stamp Act should be repealed, would it induce the assemblies of America to acknowledge the right of Parliament to tax them, and would they erase their resolutions [against the Stamp Act]?

A. No, never.

Q. Is there no means of obliging them to erase those resolutions?

A. None that I know of; they will never do it, unless compelled by force of arms.


Q. Is there a power on earth that can force them to erase them?

A. No power, how great soever, can force men to change their opinions. . . .

Q. What used to be the pride of the Americans?

A. To indulge in the fashions and manufactures of Great Britain.

Q. What is now their pride?

A. To wear their old clothes over again, till they can make new ones.

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.

Pat Buchanan gets it; John McLaughlin does not. People who are buying up all this hardware and ammo are not planning on turning the over to government thugs and murderers. McLaughlin, understand this and burn it into your East Coast pea brain: If you come to disarm America by confiscating our guns, we will kill you. Molon Labe — if you dare. Remember this, too: Your side is outnumbered more than 230 to 1. Do you still feel froggy? Then jump, frog.

The British people gave up their guns. The Aussies gave up their guns. Why won't the American people give up their guns?

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.

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.

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.

No one is going to confiscate weapons. Good grief. The only concern will be the amount of regulation attempted. Thinking there is going to be some horde of military, etc going door to door to take weapons is sheer lunacy.

I don’t know what the British or Australian Constitution says about guns.
I do know the 2nd. Amendment protects my rights.

Either my rights are worth fighting for or they are not, and if the 2nd. Amendment goes in the toilet the whole Constitution isn’t worth the paper it is written on and all of the other Amendments will be changed to suit the Muslim and his minions

The United States will then be Zimbabwe.

I think it means that if they think we’re all “fat, dumb & happy”, we won’t pose a problem when they order registration/confiscation. They’ve very stupid an in for a rude surprise, if they think that’s the case.

We will register our guns. We will do what we are told. Why? Because there is no one out there that is willing to martyr themselves in the name of freedom.

We talk a good game. Look at the Tea Party. In 2010 they were everywhere. As soon as they were pilloried in the media and compared to OWS, they vanished into the woodwork.

Want to know what our salvation is? The MSM being destroyed piece by piece. They control the governments message which in turn controls the people. Fact of life, we are choosing to live on our knees than die on our feet.

The Democrats know it and won’t stop until someone stands up and says enough. Honestly, I thought it would be Sarah Palin.

Democrats just like to pass laws, it makes them feel good about themselves. Here they think they’re doing it `for the children’ although they have armed guards for their children.
As can be seen in our southwest, `sanctuary cities’ and Chicago, they don’t care if the laws are enforced.
So the Democrats have demonstrated that they aren’t serious about law and order—at least as far as gangbangers and illegals are concerned.
But if they are serious about gun-grabbing (confiscation), well then, things are gonna go south, and fast—a lot of little Wacos with ATF agents and other LEOs being carted off on stretchers.
Just sayin’, lurkers. Last I heard we still had a 1st Amendment as well as the 2nd.

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.

Yeah, he talks a lot. I’m reminded of the poster of the GI: “I let my M-1 do my talking.”

Remember when we had a 4th, 5th, 6th, 9th and 10th Amendment?

If they can erase those, the 2nd is the only thing holding the others up. So it is the natural next target.

If Obama wanted to merely ban guns, he would do it in stages, so we get used to the restrictions, as in boiling the frog. I think he wants that civil war so he can make himself a dictator.

I agree with you but only partly. There are some who will cower and turn over their guns because they are rightly afraid.

There is a change in the air tho. It is almost palpable. What kept all those who were not afraid from rising up was the hope that we could get the ban erased-— and we did. It sunsetted.

This time they will be coming for real and they will find out a lot of patriouts are for real too. If just a few here and there stand up and are burned our of their houses, it will be tough but if we hit the tipping point to where the ones coming for the guns don’t go home again then they will lose and lose overwhelmingly.

Uh, the first three amendments are special. They recognize the right of the common man to take upon himself the traditional privileges of the nobility.

They are, third, the privilege of conducting one's household business without fear or threat of the king's military coercion.

Second, the privilege of suing others in the king's courts when resolution of a private dispute is otherwise not possible (this is where we ask the king to provide his military muscle to our disputes ~ one of the corollaries of the 'right to keep and bear arms'). And

First ~ free speech, free thought, freepress, free assembly, freedom to ask redress, freedom to petition, freedom to work with others for one's own benefit, etc. Even the nobility in Europe did not have such privileges which is probably why they are enumerated separately from those in the Second Amendment.

Regarding your right to file suit against someone else in an otherwise personal dispute, the Article III, Section 2, Clause 2 provisions relate strictly to a requirement imposed on the federal courts ~ that there must first be a real dispute so hypotheticals are out of bounds. That raises the question of just what part of the Constitution lets mere human beings to go to federal court and sue someone ~ and there it is, the Second Amendment does so by clearly granting every person in the country the traditional privileges of European nobility ~ all embodied in the first dicta ~ to keep and bear arms! The rest necessarily follows.
