Make No Mistake, The Anti-Gun Movement is an Unconstitutional Web of Lies
I’m often accused of being mean-spirited, and I AM mean-spirited when it comes to certain issues. Public ignorance and stupidity regarding Constitutional law is one of those issues.
Anyone who has followed the anti-gun movement over the past 50 years (I’ve researched and reported on it since the mid-1980s) knows that anti-gunners are, invariably, Left-wing activists with a mean-spirited Socialist agenda.
Over the last three decades, I’ve documented hundreds of instances of anti-gunners deliberately fabricating the most ABSURD “facts” in their unconstitutional crusade to deprive Americans of their basic and protected rights. These fabrications range from completely unsubstantiated child mortality numbers to outright distortions of the intent of the Second Amendment to the invention of nonsensical terms (such as “assault weapons”) designed to incite fear and distrust among American citizens.
I’ve documented the behind-the-scenes anti-gun efforts to pressure the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization into declaring gun violence an “epidemic” (an actual disease), which would permit FEMA to step in and seize tens of millions of legally-owned firearms across the USA, just as though they were dealing with an outbreak of the plague.
In short, the anti-gun movement is and always has been a WEB of LIES; its calculated Socialist propaganda targets the lowest-information citizens — necessarily meaning Liberals.
In my experience, in arguing the issue over the years, I find that anti-gunners aren’t TRULY against guns, strange as that may sound… Without fail, they ARE NOT opposed to the military, federal government and law-enforcement agencies keeping and bearing “assault weapons”; rather, they are wholly opposed to private American CITIZENS keeping and bearing ANY weapons.
Indeed, anti-gunners are QUITE comfortable with arming the central government to the teeth, just as long as you and I are deprived of that right; that is to say, the anti-gun movement is NOT about opposition to firearms, it’s about an opposition to a BALANCE OF POWER between American citizens and the central government. Anti-gunners despise and are dedicated to undermining POWER TO THE PEOPLE.
I mean, seriously, what IS an “assault weapon”?
Well, taken at its face, it would be a weapon used for the purpose of assault. Again, taken at its face, that could be a breech-loading shotgun, it could be a knife, it could be a slingshot, it could be a recurve or compound bow. ANYTHING that is designed as a weapon that is USED for purposes of assault is an “assault weapon.”
The qualifying term is “assault.” So, why in the media does that term currently apply only to tactical firearms?
Well, it’s a deliberately ambiguous term, because it can be applied to ANY weapon that people take up to assault other people; or, more precisely, ANY weapon that people utilize to shoot at the GOVERNMENT.
Shooting at the government is PRECISELY the intent of the Second Amendment — it says that an armed citizen militia is NECESSARY to SECURING a FREE STATE. That doesn’t allude to hunting or home defense or skeet-shooting — it’s talking about overthrowing a tyrannical GOVERNMENT by force of arms.
As soon as anti-gunners ever succeed in banning automatic rifles (which they haven’t yet accomplished, by the way), the NEXT “assault weapons” in their sights will be semi-automatic firearms (including handguns and hunting rifles and semi-auto shotguns). When semi-automatics are banned as “assault weapons,” then the anti gunners will move on to revolvers, and then breech-loading shotguns, and then zip-guns, and then blowguns, and then bows and arrows and slingshots and knives.
Think in terms of the frog slowly boiling to death.
ALL of these weapons will EVENTUALLY bear the ridiculously generalized label of “assault weapons.” This is exactly why the term “assault weapon” was fabricated. It’s an ongoing diminution of your right to keep and bear ANY weapons.
Although Left-wingers have long employed the cry “POWER TO THE PEOPLE,” it’s achingly apparent that anti-gunners want a complete TRANSFER of power FROM the people TO the central government.
THAT, learned friends, is un-American.
