All semantics about Gun Control versus its new brother, Gun Violence aside, nearly every one of these political proponents who are espousing common sense Gun Violence action have at one time or another in their miserable, pitiful, evil political careers have whispered “take all the guns” to those selected few supporters at one time or another.

The purpose of registration is not gun confiscation. The purpose is to have ready a list of of potential troublemakers once the left decides to go all the way in pushing its Marxist agenda.

Earlier this month, Geraldo asked a caller: “How could you not trust your own government?”

Putting aside big and little episodes of trustworthy government in the history of this country like the Trail of Tears, the interment of Americans of Japanese decent, Kent State, Waco, Fast and Furious and the Bengzai Coverup, I seem to recall Geraldo himself complaining about how the US has treated his native Puerto Rico. But his question diverts our attention. The issue isn’t the relative peace at this instant. The issue is the very nature of government itself.

History is full of governments that ran sufficiently amok as to have become a mortal danger to their own citizens. Indeed, the last centry was so full of episodes of government murdering their own citizens by deliberate official policy that it spawned a new word: democide.

Many in the media who reject American Exceptionaism want us to believe instead that the only exceptionalism left in America is to be found in her government. In how easy they dismiss the Second Amendment as being obsolete, they are telling us that there are no circumstances whatsoever in that some future government could ever run amok. They are willing to stake the lives of their children and grandchildren on that assertion.

Certainly people want to have a trustworthy government. But it concerns me that more than one member of the President’s inner circle has publicly praised China’s Mao, a man responsible for the brutal deaths of over 40 million Chinese citizens. [1,2] I am shocked that a close advisor to the president has favorably quoted Mao’s warning that [political] power comes from the barrel of a gun. [3] It is chilling to see a Mao-themed ornament on a White House Christmas tree, or the number of people who support this administration who also voice approval of the murderous Che Guevara [4,5] It is incongruous that a man who was a leader of a group that contemplated the necessity of murdering 25 million Americans who might reject political reeducation after this group took over the country is now a frequent visitor to the White House. [6,7]

Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security is busy building up a stockpile of two billion rounds of hollow point pistol ammunition. [8] The very government that Geraldo implies we must trust is spending hundreds of millions of dollars to address a contingency that cannot be explained by current trends. The shocking implication is not who does DHS intent to shoot, but why. Even if this plan devoted 100 rounds to each of these anticipated targets, two billion rounds implies a contingency involving armed action against 20 million people. How many in government anticipate the need to kill 20 million people out of a population of 310 million? Is this the same 20 or so million the Weather Underground anticipated needing to eliminate?

How should I evaluate these facts? As disconnected random coincidences or as a glimpse of the plans of those in power and those who cheer them on?

Last year in Missouri and Minnesota alone, about a million people bought licenses to harvest deer with high powered rifles. About one million Pennsylvanians hunt deer with firearms. Nationally, there are far more deer hunters than government employees of any kind. There are one million Floridians licensed to carry concealed firearms. As long as the relationship between public servants and the public they serve is healthy, then we all can enjoy the blessings of liberty, which was the core reason we formed the federal government in the first place.

But what happens when the public servant thinks he is the public master instead?

Nobody can predict how a future government might endanger our own descendants by running amok. For example, what social, political or legal forces exist today that would stop another Trail of Tears that were not sufficient to stop it the first time? Certainly firearms aren’t the answer to every outrage, or even most. Even though we are all civilized, and strive to be peaceful and polite to everyone, I cannot allow the precious right to keep and bear arms to end with my generation. My future grand children might curse me for neglecting to preserve the very tool they might need most during some urgent crisis in their lives, even though no learned member of the news media could possibly envision such a thing at this moment.

I recall a time when the finest, award winning journalists of their time, like the New York Time’s own Walter Duranty, could not bring themselves to report that Stalin was deliberately starving millions of Ukrainian farmers to death as an act of government policy. Did Duranty and the Times choose to lie because they believed they were serving a higher cause at the time? Is this like when members of today’s media lie about firearms because they are serving a higher cause today? And when some future government they support runs amok and thousands (or millions) die because they have run out of ways to resist, how will the media report it? Like they glowingly talk about the exploits of Che Guevara or Bill Ayers, who they tell us is just a neighbor of the current President?

Question to any who think that registration will not lead to confiscation: How come politicians are exempt?

Not one could pass a background check. Between the drugs, pedophilia, criminal use of office, etc. most of them belong in jail and the rest put on a deserted island.

Yeah, I really do trust the gvernment./s

It is reasonable to believe that President Obama still holds to those views...

Actually, no. Ubama's "views" start out as benign lies for the purpose of getting elected and then "evolve" to suit his true political agenda. Like homo "marriage" for example. This foul piece of sh** Ubama wants complete confiscation of all guns, make no mistake about it. He just can't say it yet.

When they come for the Fudd guns, they won’t call them “hunting” or “sporting” rifles. They’ll call them “armor peircing” “sniper” rilfes who’s only purpose is to kill.

They won’t call them “birding” or “trap” guns, they call them “street sweepers” and “scatter guns” with more power than anyone needs to shoot a duck...

“Progressives” insist that nothing could be more reasonable and benign than simply requiring every firearm and firearm owner to be registered with some government entity.”

Registration? “Progressives,” I got your answer right here:
Hold one hand out in front of you and wish, and cup one behind you and see which gets filled fastest.

You don’t frighten us, pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called “progressives” you and all your silly left peoples.
Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of silly persons! I unplug my nose my nose redux at you! Now go away or I shall taunt you a second time!
Ha ha, ho ho.

Beltway Overlords: The invitation remains open. We won’t bring them to you, but you are welcome to (try to) come and get them.

It isn’t the government’s business to know how many guns I have any more than it is for them to know how many lawn sprinklers I have.

Unless ended (like we did up her in Canuckistan),

Registration ALWAYS

leads to CONFISCATION!

Work that into a chant, and let the fools KNOW!

Gun grabbers always start speaking like this:
“First of all I want everybody in this room to know that I am a gun owner and I hunt, however....”

Well I know that once guns are eliminated from our society, as that Spork, or whomever he is, outlines in the writing, many good things will happen.

Obama's daughters can go to school without needing armed guards and many famous people will no longer require armed guards as well.
