When They Come For Your Guns, You Will Turn Them Over
August 13, 2012
By Jim Karger
When they come for my gun, they will have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands, is a common refrain I often hear from the Neo-Cons when there is a threat, credible or otherwise, that the US government is going to take their firearms.
And, when I hear this crazy talk, I agree with them openly. You are right. They will pry your gun from your cold dead hands, which I often follow with the question, And where will that leave you except face down in a pool of your own blood [in] the middle of the street, just another dead fool resisting the State?
This is not a question they are comfortable with, if only because the intent of their saber-rattling was to imply they would fight to keep their weapons, and win.
Nice fantasy. Its not happening.
If the federal government decides to disarm the public, and when the increasingly-militarized rolls down your street after a not-so-subtle request that you kindly turn over your firearms and ammunition for the common good, it will be nothing less than suicide by cop to do anything other than what you are told.
The militarization of US police forces is ongoing and escalating. Many cities and towns now own tanks, armed personnel carriers, even attack helicopters, and almost all are outfitted with military weapons not available to the general public.
And, it is not just your hometown cops who are getting new boy-toys. The military itself is buying up weaponry not just for use in the current or next scheduled war, but to deal with the likes of you, citizens who dont seem to understand that the Bill of Rights has been overruled, and that specifically includes, but is not limited to, the right to protest and engage in civil disobedience.
Also ignored (as if it didnt even exist) is the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which generally bars the military from law enforcement activities within the United States.
According to Public Intelligence:
for the last two years, the Presidents Budget Submissions for the Department of Defense have included purchases of a significant amount of combat equipment, including armored vehicles, helicopters and even artillery, under an obscure section of the FY2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the purposes of homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities. Items purchased under the section include combat vehicles, tanks, helicopters, artillery, mortar systems, missiles, small arms and communications equipment. Justifications for the budget items indicate that many of the purchases are part of routine resupply and maintenance, yet in each case the procurement is cited as being necessary for use by the active and reserve components of the Armed Forces for homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities under section 1815 of the FY 2008 NDAA.
And, they are not just arming cops and weekend warriors for domestic purposes. Active duty Marines are now being trained for law enforcement operations all over the world (of which the US remains a part) specifically to deal with civil uprisings, and the US government knows that civil uprisings are coming to a town near you just as soon as the fantasy of a healing economy is shattered, the US dollar fails, and unemployment goes to 30%+ in real numbers.
And, to you tough-talking Neo-Cons with your AR-15 rifles and a few thousand rounds of ammo, here is the reality: they will take your guns, and no, all your Second Amendment bluster aside, you are not going to do anything about it. You are not going to take on a platoon of Marines with state-of-the-art automatic weapons and the best body armor you cannot buy protected by armed personnel carriers and attack helicopters unless you choose to die that day for nothing. You will either be in the country or out, and if you are in, you will stay in and you will comply.
That is your choice
for the moment.
I would ask:
If the American people are simply going to hand over their guns then WHY all the petty gun control bans?
Why worry about "high capacity magazines" or "military style assault weapons"?
What are "they" so afraid of?
why haven't "they" collected all the guns already?
And that’s how you know that SOME of the recent so-called ‘random’ shootings are staged as the precursor for justifying such bans. The shootings the government REALLY wants us to never forget are the ones with bright, fluorescent hair involved.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
How many of those Marines said that because they believed it and how many of them said that because they knew they’d be punished if they said otherwise? Questions on a piece of paper and actions on the field are two different things.
Also, the fact that even countries like Nazi Germany and the USSR had to create special political armies to deal with their civilian populations should say how much the military enjoys being used as a politician’s bully boys.
Where does that traditional soldier end up when he’s driven out?
How much loyalty do you think he’ll have to the government that forced him out?
Finally, if soldiers are being chosen nowadays for their political correctness rather than their combat skills, who does that give the advantage too?
I was looking for that exact passage several weeks ago but couldn’t remember who had said it. Powerful! Every schoolboy should be required to read it to graduate to middle school.
Thanks very much, you guys!
Makes this thread worth saving.
You only will NEED to get ONE. All additional will be bonus, there are still enough freedom lovers to kick the statists asses when they crack down.
This Jim Karger clown has no idea what a neo con is. Neo’s are as gun shy as libs are. Most love gun control as in they would never own a gun. Think Bill Kristol and his dad who was a big time Neocon. I’m thinking this Karger guy just likes the sound of the word.
May 10, 1994 "Combat Arms Survey" administered to 300 active-duty Marines at the USMC's Air-Ground Combat Center, Twenty-Nine Palms, California
This is the same government that LOST MONEY selling hookers and booze when it ran the Mustang Ranch...
I don’t believe there is a level of incompetence higher than that.
I should have read through the entire thread before I posted. You already had it covered.
people like karger never did get it and never will
It’s usually the liberal/libertarian codeword for “Jew” and/or “Chickenhawk” meaning those who talk a good game but never wore a uniform. How that applies to the vast majority of American gun-owners I have no idea.
People like Karger will be the ones to rat out
their neighbors as the “right” think to do.
BIG talk...small thought.
First they close the highways...
Shut down the rails...
Switch off the electricity...
Turn off the natural gas...
Blow up the odd overpass or tunnel...
Let the local parasites do their “thing” for a few days, you get rid of a certain amount of ammo and work up a real thirst and serious hunger, and then here comes ‘Uncle Sugar’ to trade for information.
WE have screwed the pooch....Kapisch?
