It never occurred to me that a few days before Christmas in 2012 I would be writing a post on this blog about protecting Americans from its own government, especially on the issue of gun rights. We cannot lose these rights, friends.
History is replete with examples of tyrannical governments who disarmed their citizens and then either murdered or starved their opposition or the “unwanted” among them. From King Herod to today, elimination of opposition is a hallmark of tyranny. The Obama administration, and all of their minions and useful idiots, want to rule over a populace that cannot defend itself. Rulers do not like opposition. This is the reason for the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, to prevent tyranny over a defenseless public.
Since Obama took the White House, the Federal government of the United States has been very actively involved in arming enemies of freedom and attempting to disarm the patriots of this nation. The NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) allows for the arrest and detainment of American citizens without warrants or due process. Congress enacted a law that keeps protesters out of sight and far away from…..elected officials, a law that insulates the ruling class from the ruled. All of the Federal agencies have armed up and requisitioned millions of rounds of hollow point bullets. Here And Here:
“In March DHS ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public.”
Yet, now, because a deranged psychopath was allowed to act out a horrendous atrocity against children and school teachers, Obama would like nothing better than to disarm everyone everywhere, except of course his own government.
Yesterday the news brought an item about the Chinese Communist government releasing a statement that demands the United States enact gun control. Really? Isn’t that so nice. Who the heck are the Chinese Communists to “demand” anything of the United States and our citizens? I’m sure Anita Dunn who put Mao ornaments on the White House Christmas tree a few years back is delighted with support from the Chinese for disarming Americans.
“The Chinese government stated, “Their blood and tears demand no delay for the U.S. gun control.”
The current Chinese government, the communist People’s Republic of China, was established in a revolution led by Mao Zedong, who killed an estimated 40-70 million people with starvation, executions, and re-education camps.
From Mercy Seat:
The China chapter is much less enlightening, mostly because the victims of Mao’s genocide, unlike Hitler’s, left much less of a record for Western historians to uncover. While many scholars agree that about one million people were murdered during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), the number of people who were starved to death by Mao’s communization of the economy from 1957 to 1960 (“the Great Leap Forward”) might be as low as one million, or as high as thirty million.
Mao, like Hitler, inherited gun control from his predecessor’s regime. A 1912 Chinese law made it illegal to import or possess rifles, cannons, or explosives without a permit. The law was apparently aimed at the warlords who were contesting the central government’s authority; Chinese peasants were far too poor to afford guns. Communist gun control was not enacted until 1957, when the National People’s Congress outlawed the manufacture, repair, purchase, or possession of any firearm or ammunition “in contravention of safety provisions.”
A short walk through history will tell you all you need to know about despotic rulers who eliminated their opposition by disarming them.
1911 – Turkey disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.
1929 – Russia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.
1935 – China disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.
1938 – Germany disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 6 million Jews.
1956 – Cambodia disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million Educated people.
1964 – Guatamala disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.
1970 – Uganda disarmed it’s citizens, and between 1971 – 1979 they murdered 300,000 Christians.
I would argue the numbers of Chinese murdered was much higher than that list indicates. I’ve read higher accounts, most saying 30 million. At the side bar of this page you will find this on history of global communist tyranny.
Here are a few quotes you need to have at your fingertips in the fight against gun grabbers. Two of my favorites are below:
From Thomas Hobbes:
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed.”
From Thomas Jefferson:
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. … Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
There are many more at that page. You’ll like them! Argue against Obama’s government as if your life depended on it, because it does.
