Let's be realistic about the gun problem. I'm going to be the 800 lb gorilla in the room. Please forgive me if I offend anyone by saying this,it is not out of malice, but the way I see things.
Since Britain outlawed private ownership of guns, violent crime is up 300%-500% (depending on the area). According to their own statistics the majority of these crimes are committed by immigrants, or 1st generation citizens whose parents were immigrants. The problem in this country is not a gun problem, it is a social problem, and in some instances (here it comes) it is a racial problem. So what if you outlaw most weapons? The fact is that they are going to go house to house in the suburbs and rural areas to confiscate guns. Where crime is the least prevalent.
I highly doubt that they are going to go house to house in South Central Los Angeles, or Compton, or downtown Detroit, or Liberty City, or Oakland.They are not going to go house to house taking guns in neighborhoods where criminality is the highest, where the police are already afraid to go, and where the guns will be hidden using years of experience hiding drugs and other contraband.
Who is going to turn their guns in?
The type of Law abiding, hard working, tax paying citizens that actually go out and vote and go to church on Sunday. After all, we ARE Law abiding citizens. But, the reason that they want to confiscate guns is not really because of crime.
Who is not going to turn their guns in?
The same criminals who commit the violent crimes and probably stole them or traded them for drugs in the first place.
So how is this going to reduce violent crimes?
It isn't. The people who are the problem still have the guns.
So what is going to happen?
Violent crime against innocent Americans is going to skyrocket. More of our Fathers, Sons, Brothers, and Friends are going to be robbed and murdered. More of our Mothers, Wives, Sisters, and Daughters are going to be raped and murdered.
So we must get involved and let our representatives know that we will not stand for it, right?
Right. We are going to lobby, and petition, and e-mail, and fax, and call, and send letters, and encourage others to do the same. And then guess what? The permanent ban is going to happen anyway.
Lets look at the Bailout. 90% of Americans were against it. Congressmen and Senators offices received phone calls (a thousand to one against the bill, according to some Congressmens offices) pleading and threatening with votes to prevent the bailout from happening. And what happened?
Our Government is completely disconnected from the people it represents. They no longer consider themselves servants of "We the People", they consider themselves the rulers of "We the People"
One cannot rise to the higher levels of politics without being corrupt, or "playing ball" with those that are. That whole good 'ol boy system has been too corrupt for too long. Americans are so caught up in being Republicans or Democrats that we are blinded to the fact that neither party truly represents anyones best interest. Did you even hear immigration mentioned even once in the Presidential debates? At the very top of the ladder the Democrats and Republicans are one big happy family, making decisions for an entire nation of people with only their best interests on their agenda, not ours.
it took me a long time to believe what I realize is actually happening now......I won't start a long debate about it, but listening to TV and Radio, and reading mainstream news, I am hearing, seeing, or reading the phrase "New World Order" about twenty to fifty times daily. There are events in motion that most people are absolutely oblivious to. For years, I used to ridicule people who tried to warn me about what is happening. But after hearing multiple credible people from Ron Paul and other decent Representatives, to former members of Reagan and Nixon administration cabinets, to former high ranking CIA and FBI officials (some of whom have died mysteriously in the last few years) people with a conscience in the government are leaving and trying to let people know..........SOMETHING ISN"T RIGHT. SOMETHING IS GOING ON AND PEOPLE NEED TO GET READY.
I won't get into it here out of respect for the fact that the webmaster may not want these things discussed here, and I love this site. But I will conclude by saying this. Katrina gun confiscation was a test to see how people would react. They did not go through the poorest neighborhoods and disarm folks. they went through middle class and affluent areas and brutally seized the guns.
Historically, every time that the citizens of a nation have been disarmed, it is usually followed by the citizens being persecuted, abused, or slaughtered.
They know that they are not disarming the criminals. They know that they are only disarming the hard working, tax paying, patriotic people who would defend the constitution. They are disarming "We the People".
The criminals don't care about the constitution, or whether America remains a sovereign nation with our own separate economy and currency. The criminals will go on living outside whatever law there is just like they always have.
This is not about crime folks. This is about government control. The knid of control that eventually brings abuse, tyranny, misery, and chaos.
All of your firearms purchases have been tracked unless you bought directly from a private individual. Forget the Tiahrt Amendment. They are not disposing of the files after 24 hours like they are supposed to. I have heard this first hand from a administrative position LEO involved with keeping records for the State. If you have purchased Ammunition online with a credit card, there is a record.
Do NOT even consider surrendering your guns. Defend the Constitution and honor the MILLIONS of men who have given their lives to protect and preserve it. We have already lost so many rights and liberties, unless you wan't to lose them all. DO NOT CONSIDER SURRENDERING YOUR FIREARMS!
