“Moscow fell, for example, not from a lack of weapons to defend it, but from the lying guile of the Reds. Ten thousand Reds took Moscow and were opposed only by some few hundreds of officer cadets and their instructors. Even then the battle was fierce and losses high. However, in the city alone, at that time, lived over 30,000 military officers (both active and retired), all with their own issued weapons and ammunition, plus tens of thousands of other citizens who were armed. The Soviets promised to leave them all alone if they did not intervene. They did not and for that were asked afterwards to come register themselves and their weapons: where they were promptly shot.”
Something analogous is quite possible here. Give a little, lose it all.

We never gave up our First Amendment rights.. but
it took decades before the First Amendment was brought into focus vis-a-vis the "Fairness Doctrine." Obama could use a kind of "Fairness Doctrine."
I remember the decades of the "Fairness Doctrine;"
the First Amendment remained but conservative opinion was stifled by simply "waiting" for citizens to complain about media content thus threatening the station owners' licenses..
.. the licenses in this case could be the result of de facto registration; to wit, the Administration declares that all guns are "registered" and "licensed." Gun owners can be identified and lose their "license(s)" when any citizen complains about the gun owner's behavior.
My point again is: We never gave up our First Amendment rights.. but . . . .

(To anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal, tell him the truth.)
No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.
So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.
