Can You Imagine King George III Telling Our Nationís Founders They Couldnít Have Muskets?

Don’t you love how the Left and their step-n-fetch media mavens are trying to make law-abiding gun owners the bad guys? You don’t? Yeah, me neither.

From Hollywood’s heavily armed guarded elite to the radical, anti-gun commie rag Journal News, peaceful and upright average Joes are being isolated and concentrated on as the bane of America’s existence just because we righteously and lawfully keep and bear arms.

Hollywood has even cobbled together a little tsk-tsk black and white video demanding our government do something about gun violence. That would be the very gun violence they have glamorized on the big screen for the last few decades. Hello.

I believe the total head count of the people slaughtered on film from all the participants from the “Demand a Plan” anti-gun clip comes out to a whopping 100,000 on screen murders.

Yes, Hollywood, please lecture us about gun violence wrecking our culture. Life imitates art, morons, and your films probably spawned half of the killers’ bloody dreams for the last two decades. Lecture us? Please. Physician, heal thyself.

Check it out: When upright, law-abiding Americans want your opinion on guns we’ll give it to you, Hollyweird. Now, go back to Spago and suck on some edamame beans, you duplicitous little dandies.

Oh, and by the way, if you truly want to stem the tide of violent deaths, you should have made a video about the danger of hammers and clubs, as the FBI reports they kill more people every year than rifles do. Dorks.

You know what else is funny? The multitudinous politicians and pundits—mostly progressives—telling us what type of guns we should and should not own. “Oh, we shouldn’t have semi-automatic weapons with thumb holes and extended mags,” they say. “You should only have hunting guns,” they opine.

First off, if you think for a second that Leftists are cool with hunting and Americans owning any type of firearms then you are definitely a few fries short of a Happy Meal.

These tree-humpers would have banned hunting and hunting guns yesterday if they had the wherewithal to do it. Secondly, the right to keep and bear arms was never about putting the bam to Bambi; it was always about the right to self-defense, especially against oppressive governments. Ah-hem.

Therefore, when a progressive tells you what kind of gun you should and shouldn’t own, you should yawn and go out and buy what they just said you shouldn’t have, like millions of other Americans have.

Finally, can you imagine if King George told our original rebels that they shouldn’t own a musket? The Brown Bess, the Charleville and the Kentucky long rifle were the military/police weapons of the day, ladies and gents. “Yes, by George, you colonists shouldn’t have a musket. Who needs a musket? You can hunt with a bow and arrow or a slingshot or a snare. No one needs a dangerous musket. We have the muskets, and we’ll protect you … maybe.”

Our founding rebels with a cause would have said (did say), “Yeah, thanks, but no thanks, Georgie Boy. We’ll leave our self-defense to ourselves. Now bugger off, you snaggle toothed oppressor, and don’t make me use this.”

Oh, one last thing: Here’s a little history lesson regarding gun-grabbing and the carnage that ensued:

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th century because of gun control: 56 million.

You won’t see this data on the U.S. evening news or hear politicians disseminating this information. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

Take note, Americans.

The Founder's Intent of the Second Amendment was based on Lexington-Concord... as well as 700 years of fighting to be free starting with the 1100 Charter of Liberties.

If I remember correctly, weren’t the Brits outraged about American riflemen, and their penchant for picking off officers at 300 yards? They were pretty harsh with captured riflemen. The Pennsylvania rifle was the ‘Assault Weapon’ of the 18th century, but I don’t see them on the Ban List.

“[A] bill of rights is what the people are entitled to against every government on earth, general or particular, and what no just government should refuse.”
-— Thomas Jefferson December 20, 1787

Banning certain types of firearms because they didn’t exist in 1787 is no different than censoring the internet because it didn’t exist then.

Thanks for the photo. Great start to a Sunday morning.

It’s a Duty to abolish any government that doesn’t have the citizens best interest .

This way wont work anymore for western governments. Much easier with dictator controlled govts.

States have the power to abolish the federal Govt. yes, the states get a lot of handouts , but it is the federal govt that Cannot exist without
the states.

Finding enough soldiers willing to face courts-martial and a sentence of death for
treason under the UCMJ is a longshot.
Statistics say %25 would most certainly shoot at citizens if ordered.

Our govt is just a bunch of replaceable people casting votes in congress.

If every member of the federal govt were to die at the same time They would just be replaced with new people who would do the same things.

In a dictatorship govt is not replaceable .
It can only be abolished.

Let’s start by not voting for either republican or
democrats. Everybody’s afraid to do this non violent take over. Cowards!

I would love to use those gun control statistics at the end of this article. I wonder, however, if they are all totally legitimate. Does anyone know where he got them?

Meanwhile the democrats can gain total control or is that your intent?

Not if their not in control.

Don’t let fear stop you from taking back govt.
Don’t you think the colonists had a lot of fear and uncertainty in their actions?

I’d give up the Internet right now if it meant taking back control of the govt.

I never said not to vote.
Of course vote .
Do for some one that has your best interests.

Republicans and democrats do not have the people’s best interests.

Too many people lack the courage to take control of their govt.

Good cop , bad cop, oldest trick in book, and citizens are lining up for hours to keep it that way.

Yep, it actually happened and didn't end well for the King:

My republican congressman is one I happen to like.

You have nothing but circular logic that seems oddly anarchist to me.
