Are You With Us Or Against Us?
Today, a line has been drawn in the sand. A gaunlet has been thrown down. In government, either you stand with the 2nd amendment or you oppose it. Soon, there will be stiff penalties for infringing on the 2nd ammendment rights of law abiding Americans. The National Rifle Association is issuing a challenge to our nation's mayors and police chiefs. They can sign a pledge that they will never take the guns from their constituents. Simply sign a pledge. Refusal to sign makes any gun owner wonder under what circumstances they would advocate the forcible confiscation of firearms from law abiding citizens.
May the gun grabbing incumbents be warned. Thousands of voters are watching. Mayors and police chiefs can simply declare, in writing, that they will never order the confiscation of weapons from law abiding citizens. The NRA is pointing to a dotted line, and placing the pen in their hand. If they refuse to state their position, in writing, gun owners will know exactly where they stand. Period.
The confiscation of firearms from residents of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina is the seminal force for this challenge. If any person has any doubt that these gun confiscations occured against law abiding citizens, at gunpoint, watch the testimony of multiple victims on film, soon to be released by the NRA. Patricia Konie is only one of many. Naysayers were wrong. It happened in the United States. Hundreds of victims of confiscations. Thousands of guns taken. No receipts.
Mayors and police chiefs across the United States have become the latest pawns and advocates for gun control organizations. Other politicians try to keep their gun grabbing ways hidden from view. Expect some gun grabbing politicians to try to play the game and sign on and then continue as before. For those mayors, the NRA has a swift response. Jail. The NRA's chief lobbyist, Chris Cox, explains the group will introduce legislation that makes it a criminal act to seize firearms from law abiding citizens. "If you're in a position of public authority and you use it to forcibly disarm law abiding citizens, you're not going to get your hand slapped or pay a fine or get a good scolding from some judge in a few months down the line. You're going to be arrested on the spot and you're going to jail."
Today, elected officials are attending fund raisers and rallies organized by the Brady Campaign and other anti-gun groups. Catch phrases like "illegal guns" and the "right to hunt" are being bandied about. Make no mistake. SOS. It's the same old shit. The end goal is the eradication of privately owned firearms. At the point of a gun if need be. As you listen to your local politicians spew their sound bites, ask yourself.......Where do they really stand on your right to keep and bear arms? They are either friend or foe. They are either with us or against us. There is no middle ground. And now, they can put their position in writing........If they have the balls to do so.
