I know this video is several years old, but people need to know that the govt is ready and willing to take your rights away.
This abomination can never happen again.

I have been trying to imagine if something on the scale of Japan happened here if they were forcibly disarming people after Katrina.
Just remember that the main thing they will need is a list of what guns each person has.
This is why they keep on hammering on the gun-show loophole LIE they call the legislation to implement this type of control baby steps and a good start.
This is partially to absolve themselves when this measure fails to do anything, but it also telegraphs that they have further steps in mind.
Apropos of nothing, but heres a link to an interesting blog entry from Cheaper than Dirt on Long-term Gun Storage:
I dont know about anyone else, but its rather bit disconcerting that a commercial source is openly talking about this.
Not that we all have not been doing so ourselves.
One of these days some learned individual needs to do a treatise on who "the government" really is.
We, the people are the government. The question is, “Are we ever going to stand up and take control again?”
Not at all. It was the police chief and Mayor Nagan that made the decision to take guns away from law abiding citizens. Not the White House's.
That's why even local elections are so important. A leftist anywhere at any level can and will destroy the Constitution at any given opportunity.
There’s a book about it — GREAT AMERICAN GUN GRAB. Cops were taking away guns from law-abiding citizens trying to protect their homes. Then going back and robbing the houses when people left. Thugs running amok. “State of emergency” declared by the city suspending Constitutional rights.
Kind of like the “Free speech is a good idea... but this is a war.” Emergency = basis to take away all our rights.
Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
The lesson we all should have learned from Katrina is not to trust the government with our personal security.
In addition to other steps, we all need to have an Insurance Policy of extra firearms hidden away in case of need.

I presume you are referring to looting. The Amish who could still stand up would immediately start looting even if their home was demolished. They view looting as “earning money” because everything is for sale in their world. That’s a fact not a supposition.
Anyone who surrenders their weapons to someone saying they have authority to confiscate them or registers them ANYWHERE deserves to die on their knees.
This person is a tried and true leftist and they cant be the only ones.
If thats not a scary thought for you, nothing is.
Ping... and thanks for posting this.
As others have speculated, the most likely scenario is that the gun grabbers will push the issue as far as they can go and then change over to an Emergency Powers regime to complete the task of disarming their enemies.
Registration is their Holy Grail, but just having federal control of all gun sales would have them sitting pretty.
They would love to just be able to order us all to Turn them in but they know thats not in the cards.
So, once theyve got their ownership database, if need be, they can use some sort of emergency to begin grabbing them, with the hope on their part that enough people dont have them squirreled away to make it difficult for them after the fact.
They are not your friend. They will follow whomever signs theur paycheck.
Since that time however things have gotten better, with the Supreme Court ruling that the 2nd amendment does indeed mean you may own a firearm for self defense, as well as various states passing laws making it a crime for cops to try to do a gun seizure stunt as was done in New Orleans after Katrina.
And some states have even amended the state constitution to include the right to bear arms,and more & more people are aware of these facts .
Truer words were never spoken!!!
