Glenn is essentially saying that there are more gun owners than the justice system can process and imprison. He is saying to overwhlem the system and in a peaceful manner knowing that we have the law on our side.
He is desperately afraid of any sort of violent conflict, because he believes such a conflict favors the side of tyranny.
He may be right on that, but I am not going to go to prison because I obeyed the constitution.
I’m not going to put my fate in the hands of John Roberts.
I’m not going to pay lawyers.
I am simply not going to give in to tyranny. Come Hell or high water, or death.
Furthermore, Beck's plan won't even work. Why would the tyrant's minions even bother to "process" us through today's criminal system?
I came across this quotation from The Gulag Archipelago yesterday.
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 I. Solzhenitsyn
Between Freerepublic and Drudge, I feel we are under seige. Obama and his minions insult and disparage hard working, law abiding citizens every day. They refuse to give on spending, but take more and more. Now all this talk on gun control, gun confiscation, etc. Almost seems that O and his minions are pushing conservative Americans, perhaps hoping to provoke a disaster so they can take the guns and declare martial law. Perhaps this is what Glenn Beck fears. I hope no one falls for this. Although such a situation can be manufactured with a willing media.
Beck is an IDIOT!
The Jews didn’t fight back and went to the prisons....Then to the ovens....If the prisons get overcrowded, don’t think for a minute that the NWO wouldn’t do the same.
Go to prison and meanwhile your family become targets by liberals and criminals... When your 9 year old gets raped...The Obamanites will say they deserved it.. Just like the Germans said when the ovens were full...
Given the numbers, I think conflict favors law abiding gun owners. Lots of military and police like having their own personal weapons to protect themselves and family.
Stick to your guns, no matter what. If they come to take them by force, they have declared war on the Constitution, and on you. At that point, war is joined, just as it was on another big gun confiscation raid on April 19, 1775.
If you are disarmed and led away in cuffs, are you so sure you’ll be bailed out? And not taken to a “new place” with “new rules”?
Every survivor of every genocide says the same: when they come to take your guns, shoot them. Make them work for it, and THEIR system is overwhelmed, because they don’t have 20 million FLEAs to do armed battles all over the country, instead of nice polite arrest raids.
It’s like the Solzhenitzn paragraph “how we burned later in the camps” because they didn’t resist the GRU/KGB in the lobbies and stairwells with axes and knives.
Entire divisions of Russian troops hiked home from WW1 in 1917/18, carrying their rifles and swords and other sidearms. Very early on, Lenin decreed that public safety demanded they all be turned in, under penalty of death.
But they were disarmed, then the purges, the Terror, the gulags.
If you give up your arms, you are placing your entire trust in the future benevolence of the U.S. govt. This trust is fatal. The German gun registration laws and limits on “military” weapons (then, Mausers etc) were put in in the 1920s Weimar, years before Hitler.
All common sense and reasonable gun control laws, I’m sure today’s liberals would agree. Hitler comes along, and uses the list to first disarm, and then ghetto-ize or “deport” or gas the Jews and others, killing millions. Using the “common sense” gun registration lists.
I’m sorry, I do NOT trust that our .gov won’t turn as mean as the old USSR to its “enemies,” the white racist “tea party terrorists,” the bitter clingers. Folks, they perceive that we are reactionary forces not only standing in the way of social progress and utopia, we are actively blocking it. That makes us pure Evil, since their plan is pure Good. That means they will come to feel totally justified in a “final solution to the bitter clinger question.”
Just as it was in other divided and fractured societies under tyrants. Turkey, Germany, Russia, all of the list.
STICK TO YOUR GUNS!
