Next we will be required to enter a Federal gun registry and then confiscation. Nothing will stop this. King Obama is America's first dictator and will reign supreme.

The Roman historians tell a story about the German hero Arminius, a.k.a. Hermann der Hrusker (the Cheruscan -- the Cherusci were a powerful German tribe in Bavaria 2000 years ago) -- and how he died.

The kings of the German tribes were like the minor khans of central Asia: neighborhood wise men whom people consulted for their knowledge and judgment, and in addition led the German tribes in war. But it was the custom among the Cherusci that kings, like khans, were not absolute rulers but rulers-by-influence, and they never commanded kinsmen but asked them if they would do a thing.

One night in 9 AD after his great victory over the Romans in the Teutoberger Wald, where Arminius's Germans destroyed three full Roman legions and their auxiliaries under Quinctilius Varus in a days-long running battle, Arminius decided that the time had come to assert kingly power over his fellow-tribesmen, and so he picked his moment and directed a command, in the imperative mood, to a cousin. The man froze, as did everyone else, as they realized what was happening, and then the insulted kinsman picked up a spear and drove it right through Arminius, killing him instantly where he sat. Then, untouched, he walked out of the assembly. Nobody laid a finger on him or recriminated, because every man-jack knew he had just defended his, and everyone's, rights and the people's dignity as citizens of the tribe, not subjects of Arminius.

Thus endeth the lesson.

That’s a Civil War II scenario.

Gun Confiscation will just have anyone in a position of authority shot on sight. No small town mayor would be safe.

In my opinion, that’s what enough gun owners will just go out and do.

Just when you think you know the ending the unexpected happens.

Fools like Obozo ALWAYS destroy themselves, as we will eventually witness.
