(VIDEO) They Are Coming For Your Weapons

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 17, 2007

The video you will see on this web site is horrifying. The crimes committed against law-abiding gun owners are beyond comprehension. The arrogance of anti-gun politicians and government officials and their hate of freedom will churn your stomach.

The law is the law, the Constitution is the Constitution. If ONE local mayor or police chief can decide what the Second Amendment means, it opens the door to tyranny—where ANY mayor or police chief can say what the Second Amendment means.

You’ve seen this brand of abuse of freedom in the history books—in the pages about days of gun confiscations leading to the terror of Stalin, Mao and Hitler. But you’d never in a million years think it could happen in America.
Well, it can and it did. And it will happen again unless we take action today.

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, Police Superintendent P. Eddie Compass unleashed a wave of confiscations with these chilling words:
“No one will be able to be armed. We will take all weapons. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns.”

Thousands of firearms were then confiscated from law-abiding gun owners. The police gave no paperwork or receipts for those guns. They just stormed in and seized them.

With your help we’re going to make the first time in New Orleans the LAST time in America. Thank you!

Now, one year later, these crimes against gun owners have snowballed into a far greater threat to our freedoms.
Even though NRA secured a court order demanding their immediate and unconditional return, almost every single confiscated firearm remains locked in government trailers.

With the stroke of a pen, Mayor Nagin and Police Superintendent Compass are getting away with “murder”—a savaging of the second, fourth and fourteenth amendments of our Constitution. And they have put America on notice that they’re going to keep seizing lawfully owned guns under any pretense.

New Orleans gun owners are showing up at these trailers, with serial numbers of their firearms, expecting Mayor Nagin and his band of anti-gunners to respect the Federal courts.
They are met by stony-eyed bureaucrats who say serial numbers aren’t enough—and that gun owners now need PROOF OF PURCHASE of these firearms.
How many of those gun owners do you think had original receipts for those firearms? And even if they did, how many do you think could find those receipts in the wreckage of a hurricane?
Many of these firearms were passed down from father to son, generation to generation. Some are precious heirlooms. Some are collector’s pieces won in our wars. And they were all lawfully owned and they must be returned to their owners.
With your help we’re going to make the first time in New Orleans the LAST time in America. Thank you!

Commentary

Anything I say at this point will get me arrested, so I’ll offer some advice, which may or may not get me arrested:

  1. Never keep all your firearms in your home.
  2. Never have all your firearms registered. (Hey, it’s real easy to forget!)
  3. Train frequently with your weapons, so that you are intimately familiar with their operation, and can do so blindfolded.
  4. Make sure you have an attorney on retainer versed in firearm rights, and is enthusiastic about preserving the Second Amendment.
  5. Always aim for center of mass, and use the largest caliber of firearm you can safely operate, repeat. Move on to the next target.
  6. Vote only for candidates who support the 2nd Amendment, and make sure you ask them about the Second Amendment in Public Forums.
  7. Keep your powder dry, and stay frosty on your gun rights!
  8. Never, ever fire on an officer of the law unless you are ready to die.
  9. I mean really ready to die.

West Carolina Report for Dec 17th

Posted by Thunder Pig on December 17, 2007

I have finished updating West Carolina Report for today.

It is hard to believe that Iowa is two weeks or so away, and Giga Tuesday about six weeks away, which mean I’ll have to kick it into high gear to complete my review of the GOP and Dem Candidates before Giga Tuesday.
