A national discussion on US government gun purchases

Armed to the teeth: US federal government attempts to disarm US citizens as it purchases heavy arms at an alarming rate

If you haven’t heard about the recent guns and ammo purchases by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), don’t feel like you’re out of touch. It may be because most of the mouthpiece media outlets chose to ignore it. For those of you who haven’t seen the news; the domestic security agency DHS has issued a standing purchase order for nearly 2 billion hollow point bullets. This is in addition to an order for 7,000 fully automatic assault rifles. Oh, don’t forget the 2,712 mine resistant personnel carriers complete with gun ports, that are more at home in Afghanistan than on Main Street, USA. All supplied by you, the taxpayer.

Of course, this frantic purchasing of heavy guns and ammo is occurring at the same time government royalty figures like Dianne Feinstein are demanding, “Turn ’em in Mr. & Mrs. America”. From New York City Roman Emperor Michael Bloomberg to his Supreme Highness, Barack Obama; officials charged with guarding your constitutional rights are busy trying to take them away from you.

But back to these DHS purchases. The US federal government is buying enough hollow point bullets to kill every man, woman, and child in the US five times over. That’s right. There’s five bullets for each of you. And wait a minute: aren’t hollow point bullets illegal for use in war, by international treaty? Oops. Well, the US federal agency DHS isn’t going to use them internationally – they plan to use them against domestic terrorists. So, no worries!

And while your AR-15 and AK-47 is in government sights for confiscation, the DHS is actually purchasing real assault rifles. You know, the kind that can shoot all the bullets in its big magazine while simply squeezing the trigger. You can’t do that with the pedestrian AR-15 and AK-47s being peddled by government pundits as “dangerous assault rifles”. The dangerous assault rifles are the 7,000 going to a domestic security agency that wouldn’t even be in existence if our elected officials in Washington did something other than buy each other drinks in expensive restaurants on the taxpayer dime.

But wait. There’s a reasonable explanation for all these purchases. Those DHS folks are just trying to save the taxpayers money by purchasing in bulk. You’ve got to hand it to them. Practice makes perfect and this will give them 100,000,000 hollow point bullets to shoot per year for the next 20 years. And if gun owners tell you that you use less expensive metal jacket bullets on the shooting range – just tell them that you trust the government to make the right purchases.

Mainstream news media has largely ignored this story but an op-ed piece written by Ralph Benko has appeared on Forbes.com. Mr. Benko writes,“ at the height of the Iraq War the Army was expending less than 6 million rounds a month.  Therefore 1.6 billion rounds would be enough to sustain a hot war for 20+ years – in America.”

Mr. Benko goes on to point out, “Why, indeed, should the federal government not be deploying armored personnel carriers and stockpiling enough ammo for a 20-year war in the homeland?  Because it’s wrong in every way.  President Obama has an opportunity, now, to live up to some of his rhetoric by helping the federal government set a noble example in a matter very close to his heart (and that of his Progressive base), one not inimical to the Bill of Rights: gun control.  The federal government can (for a nice change) begin practicing what it preaches by controlling itself.”

Finally, Benko urges “Cancelling, or at minimum, drastically scaling back — by 90% or even 99%, the DHS order for ammo, and its receipt and deployment of armored personnel carriers.” A national discussion must take place over this frightening turn of events. It’s time we summoned our elected royal figures in Congress and the Senate and demand to know what they are doing to put a stop to this insane behavior from an unelected and unaccountable federal agency.

Before it’s too late.

The Ultimate Gun Ban

Guns For UN Armed Forces Only

Guns For UN Armed Forces Only

(Aurora, CO) The horrific shootings by a lone crazed gunman have predictably brought the gun ban politicians out of the woodwork. Salt, trans-fat, soda drink size activist and New York City Mayor Bloomberg demanded “it’s time that the two people who want to be president of the United States stand up and tell us what they are going to do about it… [gun laws]” Senator Frank Lautenberg D-NJ, always an expert on the US Constitution opined, “these types of tragedies will continue to occur unless we do something about our nation’s lax gun laws.”

Years of anti-gun indoctrination in the US has created the right atmosphere for gun bans. Events such as the tragic shootings in Aurora, CO along with media saturation of the story serve to move the US closer than ever towards an all-out ban on firearms. The upcoming UN SMALL ARMS TREATY if ratified by the US Senate will open the door for the UN to regulate firearms in the US. Some American politicians seem more than ready to make privileged government personnel sole possessors of firearms while the serfs are disarmed.

That’s why it’s important to remember that the biggest killer of citizens by far is government. In fact, some estimates claim several hundred million citizens killed by their own governments in the twentieth century alone. Gun bans really work. They raise government law enforcement agents to a special privileged class and lower citizens to a compliant, fearful group of people who do what they’re told. The Second Amendment was written to protect citizens from a tyrannous government. Is it any wonder that this is not taught in the government school system?

Rogue government mouthpieces like New York City’s mayor Bloomberg have long demanded a nationwide gun ban. While law abiding citizens in the decaying city largely cannot even own a gun, citizens are killed there by guns all the time. This myth that somehow a gun ban will make the citizens safer is pure eye and ear candy – a type of political heroin with the same type of payoff. Of course, His Highness Bloomberg also has 24 hour, seven day a week taxpayer funded police protection.

Consider the government sponsored Hutu genocide against the unarmed Tutsi’s in Rwanda. According to Wikipedia, “Most of the victims were killed in their own villages or in towns, often by their neighbors and fellow villagers. The militia typically murdered victims by machetes, although some army units used rifles. The Hutu gangs searched out victims hiding in churches and school buildings, and massacred them. Local officials and government-sponsored radio incited ordinary citizens to kill their neighbors.” Ultimately 800,000 – 1,000,000 largely unarmed Tutsi’s were killed. Defenseless women and children were hacked to death, or raped and then shot.

No gun ban discussion is complete without deciding which parties will be stripped of the right to self-protection. I propose that any gun and personal protection device bans include all federal, state, and local government officials including law enforcement. After all, if a gun ban will make everyone so safe, why does ANYONE need them? If you support gun bans,  demand a complete gun ban that includes all government royalty including law enforcement at all levels.

Mayor Bloomberg is a Roman style Caesar, who demands the right to regulate your life in New York City right down to the salt in your diet and the size of your soft drink. And if you refuse? Guess who shows up with guns?

Gun Control with the Obamacare Template

Robert E Lee

Robert E Lee found out what happens when you go against tyrants in government.

Jasper County Commissioner Mary Patrick* recently sent me a gun alert entitled, “Civil War Via Gun Control Is Coming”. Yes Mary, a total gun ban is coming. Civil war probably is not. Let me explain.

The Globalist-Marxist cadre that seized control of the US federal government has been successful implementing a series of tasks that included The Patriot Act, NDAA, Obama’s Executive Orders, and the Patient Protection and Care Act a/k/a Obamacare. These acts are designed to harmonize the US into a truly global system of governance that will transform the US into a vassal state and its citizens into world serfs.

It was essential that a government sponsored universal health care program was put in place because most other Marxist-Socialist countries have one as well. This is where the gun ban comes in. Most countries have strict bans on citizens owning firearms. Only government officials and criminals own guns in the globalist community. The shadowy group in Washington DC desperately need to complete the mission of folding the US into the world government. The US Constitution and the second amendment simply get in the way. And these are people who don’t let anything stand in their way. As you saw with Obamacare, it was rammed through to the surprise of many.

The same template is in place for the coming gun ban. Oh sure, some Senators and Congresspeople will pretend to fight it, but alas, they will “lose” the battle. Those officials looking at a close race will get a “pass” and be permitted to vote against any gun control bills. But the back room deals will clinch it and you’ll see yet another truly American tradition trampled under the feet of DC globalist thugs.

This is not a battle between two honest groups of people – one group concerned about gun safety and the other about the Second Amendment. Instead, it is a desperate part of the overall agenda and goals of globalist-marxist operatives who seek people control without having to worry about those pesky gun owners. And these operative completely control the US federal government. It’s time every citizen wakes up and understands what this means.

Many gun owners have told me that they will fight to the death before they let the government confiscate their guns. And that’s what the plotters in Washington DC are betting on. They will use the taxpayer funded military to forcibly take guns from resistors and it won’t be pretty. Military hardware today is amazingly advanced. You’re going up against state-of-the-art equipment that is tough to defend against. Urban warfare is also very advanced. After all, we’ve been waging war all over the planet and the US military is very good at killing people.

Those who resist will be viciously and very publicly killed. It will be bloody and the government controlled press will eagerly cover it. This will serve as a warning to those who make think they can get away with keeping their firearms.

The globalist-marxist backed US federal government is determined to disarm US citizens and they’ll let nothing stand in their way. In fact, Obama is so confident that his re-election gives him a mandate on his goals, he’s ready to implement them without delay. You might say he hasn’t a worry in the globalist world.

So what can be done considering the US federal government is so powerful and more than willing and capable to kill mass amounts of Americans to achieve their goals?

There are several possibilities and I will outline them below.

  1. Toss the Republicans and Democrats out of Congress and the Senate. Elect Libertarian or better, elect Constitution Party candidates. A majority in Congress and the Senate could slow down or even halt the plans of the globalist cabal in DC.
  2. Toss out any Governor who doesn’t stand firmly in between the federal government and his/her state government. The Governor has two tools that can be used against an out of control federal government. One is interposition which simply means “stand-in-between” and refuse to let the feds take any guns away in that state. The second tool is “nullification”. This means what it says: Nullify or make void any bill that seeks to violate the US Constitution, within that state.

America is at the end of the line when it comes to gun bans. Most other countries have already banned guns for all intents and purposes. The globalists need to finish the job here in the US, and – just like passing government health care, they will effect a gun ban if we let them.

Here are some resources that may help stop the madness:

  1. http://tenthamendmentcenter.com/; this excellent group works to use the Tenth Amendment along with “Interposition” and “Nullification” to defend against unconstitutional laws forced on the states by the US federal government.
  2. http://gunowners.org/ ; Ron Paul calls this the only “No compromise gun lobby in Washington”
  3. http://jbs.org ; “The John Birch Society endorses the timeless principles of the Declaration of Independence. The Society also labors to warn against and expose the forces that seek to abolish U.S. independence, build a world government, or otherwise undermine our personal liberties and national independence. “

*Mary Patrick is a Jasper County GA Commissioner, that decided not to seek a second term in order to go back to being a “watchdog” of government activities.

Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell: who gave you permission?

Police State

One person's freedom is another's bondage

There are two grantors of permission in our society. One is God and the other is government. Consider what God says is not permitted. Homosexuality, fornication (shacking up outside of marriage), killing your baby in the womb or out of the womb (abortion and partial birth abortion), adultery, stealing, murder, bearing false witness (lying against another on the witness stand). God is not pleased when you long for your neighbor’s wife or covet others property.

If you think about it, these are reasonable requests by the One who formed the entire Universe with His spoken voice and outstretched arm. Interestingly, God doesn’t place any other limits on you at all. You are free to engage in commerce, use your property as you see fit, go anyplace you wish, protect yourself from criminals and do just about anything else you can think of. Where the spirit of God is, you have liberty. Your limits are clearly defined, easy to understand.

Now let’s talk about what the US government doesn’t permit. You are not free to engage in commerce. There are thousands of pages of restrictions and regulations you must follow if you choose to risk going into business. You cannot use your property as you see fit unless you adhere to Federal, State, and Local government demands that range from extortion payments defined as taxes to nutty environmental rules to zoning laws and much more.

You can go anyplace you wish if you don’t mind the occasional harassment by police officers, groping by TSA officers, environmental requirements on your vehicle, road block/check points where you’re considered guilty unless you can prove yourself innocent. And please – show us your papers… You can still protect yourself from violent criminals but that will soon be a thing of the past courtesy of the US police state. The future means more people beaten in their own homes, vehicles, on the street because permission to exercise their God given right to self-defense will be taken away.

Building a home, using your property in a matter you see fit, engaging in commerce without being hassled by government meddlers, hiring employees, driving your car – drinking raw milk… the US is now completely under a permission based command and control government. Your Senators and CongressThugs spend their days looking for new ways to restrict your ability to move freely through society.

Now let’s look at what the US government permits. Homosexuality. Not only is it permitted, but it’s celebrated by the rulers of the US Regime. Just the other day, the military threw open its doors to homosexuals inviting them to openly proclaim their alternate lifestyle. Homosexuality increasingly is preached as the ‘gospel’ in government schools. Just take a look at what is going on in Massachusetts. Children in grade school are being indoctrinated into the homosexual lifestyle. Homosexual proms are chaperoned by adult homosexual men dressed in leather. See Mass Resistance. Caution: graphic.

There have been a number of stories in the media about the ‘new family’. What’s the ‘new family’ you ask? How about two homosexual men adopting 3 young boys. Think I’m kidding? Go here. And there have been many other stories in the media as well.

Fornication, a/k/a ‘shacking up’, is tacitly approved in the US so millions of children are born with no father or mother or parents at all. Of course, the answer to that is abortion which is permitted and encouraged in the US. Killing your baby inside or outside the womb earns you a special status in society. Those opposed to abortion are vilified by the atheist humanist mainstream media. After all, if this isn’t true, why do so many government schools bypass parents and assist teens in obtaining an abortion?

Stealing. The government is 100% for taking your money and handing it over to anyone they choose. The US government is not against setting one individual against another to create an environment favorable to taking more power and more of your money.

So there is a quick look at two different views on what should be permitted.

You see, real liberty is granted by God Himself. The government takes it away and replaces it with a perverted form of freedom that is really bondage to the state. This is freedom to be perverse, to revel in sin, to go against God Himself. All while empowering government to place you in an ever tightening noose of bondage. Why does the ‘government’ of the United States support this seemingly unconscionable direction in permission granting?

Its purpose is to tip reason and logic upside down so the masses become confused of what constitutes right and wrong. This creates a citizenry that is easier to control and manipulate. Consider the actions of the government over the past few years and compare these new restrictions to the US Constitution – the document that George W. Bush called “just a god damned piece of paper…”

  • FCC take over of the internet.
  • Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Food Drug Administration (FDA), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) take over of the nations food supply, from seeds to the dining room table. S510
  • DHS, CIA, FBI, given powers to suspend the Bill of Rights under the Orwellian sounding “Patriot Act”
  • Real ID. The federal government creates a national ID card that you are required to show upon demand to “confirm your identity”. Comes complete with RFID chip.
  • Domestic Security Enhancements Act which criminalize encrypted messages by citizens. Removes your ability to be bailed out if you’re arrested for certain “crimes”. US can revoke citizenship for supporting a terrorist group – but anybody can be a terrorist. See MIAC Report.
  • Federal government take over of the nation’s health care system.

None of these actions had the approval of a majority of US citizens. But they were rammed through anyway. Enforcement and rule making then comes from unconstitutional agencies that shouldn’t even exist. Massive new restrictions on liberties is on its way along with vast police state style enforcement. And best of all, you get to pay for all of this whether you want to or not.

If government is in charge of what’s right and wrong, anything goes. Today it’s homosexuality, abortion, and euthanasia of senior citizens. What will be the hot social trend celebrated tomorrow? Man-Boy-Love-Association?

There is only one constant society can trust. That is God’s guiding word in the Holy Bible. It hasn’t changed since it was written thousands of years ago. It’s simple to understand and easy to follow. It maximizes liberties while placing a clear emphasis on what is needed to maintain a moral society. The government version emphasizes tyranny while rewriting thousands of years of natural law.

This may be a good part of the reason that the US government is so adamant about supporting the Constitution when it comes to separating religion from all facets of society. And it may be the best reason to resist the government’s efforts to eliminate all vestiges of the Judeo-Christian religion from government, schools, court rooms, and public gatherings.

Because God’s Natural Law is liberty. The government’s laws lead to tyranny. And they know it. Who will be granting you permission in 2011?

They’re coming for your guns

If the US gov't bans guns, only they will have guns

If the US gov't bans guns, only they will have guns

The other day a tough old geezer said, “they ain’t takin my guns away – I can promise you that. It’ll be over my dead body…” And be assured I told him, it will. It will be over your dead body my friend.

Killing a few patriots is nothing for the leaders of the US federal government. Some people insist on taking that ‘whistling in the dark’ approach as if they could singlehandedly take on the dictators in the new US federal police state. Let me say right here and right now: They’re coming for your guns. Period.  Don’t make me say it a second time. If the dictators in the US federal government can pass a bill forcing you to purchase a good or service (think ObamaCare), then they can force anything on the American people. And that includes neutralizing the 2nd Amendment.

A universal gun ban is one of Mr. Obama’s top priorities. Socialists and communists always take away the citizens guns because that’s how they maintain strict control over the population. When the law abiding citizens are disarmed, only the thugs in government and the thugs in the streets will have guns. This is fact – just look at Mexico. The purpose of the 2nd Amendment was to ensure that the people of the United States could rise up against a tyrannous government. It’s a lot harder for a people to dissent against an oppressor with all the guns. And of course that’s the goal of the US federal government.

HR 45 also known as Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 would initiate a national licensing system for some guns. Let me stop here for a minute: once a framework for a national licensing bill is in place, renegade politicians can ‘modify’ the bill each year till owning a gun is so much of a chore that you voluntarily surrender your gun rights. You can see this in action with ObamaCare. Watch as Senators and Congressjerks work on ObamaCare till we have a complete government run system. The current system will by design, collapse and to resolve the ‘crisis’, the feds will step in and ‘rescue’ our health care system. That of course after they trashed it in the first place.

Gun ban Nazi’s will use the same successful template. First a series of crisis’s like the one that occurred in Australia. A group of tourists were gunned down by a deranged man and that gave the socialists in control of the government there, all they needed to institute an immediate gun ban. Who would have thought that Australia, a country that seemed to share American ideals of liberty and freedom, would voluntarily surrender their guns? But who would have thought they would permit Cap and Trade there either?

America needs a States’ Rights Governor in every state that will press back against an adventurous federal government. Alongside that Governor, we need a strong Constitutionalist Attorney General who has the backbone and the will to stand fast against a frighteningly bellicose group in Washington DC.  The last peaceful resolution to an out of control federal government is a strong State Government – one that turns away all unconstitutional bills, taxes, treaties, and wars foisted on it by the federal government. Every citizen deserves and indeed pays for; a State Government that stands in between the people and an over reaching group of elitists who have an agenda that’s as far from that of the Founding Fathers as earth is from Mars.

What will you do when they come for your guns? Why you’ll hand them over of course. That’s why you must stand up now and fight against the madness in Washington DC. Gone are the days when you can kick back and let someone else fight your battles. America is in the midst of a desperate conflict of ideology – socialism/communism vs. freedom and liberty. And socialism is winning. If you want life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for your children and grandchildren, you must stand up now and fight.

What does it mean to fight? You get out and vote. You join the Tea Party movement. You join Campaign for Liberty. You join the John Birch Society. You talk to your family. You talk to your friends. You get educated on the immense volume of legislation coming down from the Royalty sitting full time in Washington DC while you and I struggle to pay our bills.

One sure way to end the madness is to end the nutty idea of a full time Congress and Senate. Let those lazy slobs go out and get real jobs for a change. Aren’t you tired of paying for their largess in Washington? Aren’t you fed-up with their idea of a ‘Full-Time’ job where they spend their time thinking up new laws to restrict our liberties and new taxes to take from our hard earned paychecks? We can save a lot of money by cutting their hours by 75%. Then they’ll have less time to pass stupid new bills.

Remember, after the gun ban is passed, it’s too late.

Independence Day – Beer, Burgers, & BS?

Hob nailed boot on Declaration of Independence

Is this inevitable?

A few years ago, a group of us were standing around at work discussing the upcoming 4th of July weekend and our plans. The conversation drifted casually over to the meaning of ‘Independence Day’. One of us turned to a younger member of the group, a candidate for a Masters Degree and asked, “What does the 4th of July stand for?” This individual, near to possessing a Masters Degree looked back with a blank stare.

I carefully scrutinized the look on this person’s face, expecting the joke to be on us – that we were going to hear a college level description of the events leading up to the United States becoming a free nation, unshackled from an oppressive government.

But it never happened.

Obviously smelling blood, the same person who asked the Masters Degree the original question, then inquired as to the meaning of the Civil War. Once again the blank stare. The Masters Degree was not a stupid person. Sadly, much of the blame rests squarely on the government education system in the US. As my wife is fond of saying, “the American education system is quite successful in achieving their goals – to produce uneducated students who are incapable of critical thinking…” This student along with countless others is easily manipulated and controlled by design.

There’s a video on YouTube that chronicles an interviewer as he asks people on the street about the meaning of Independence Day. Many of the people were clueless. They knew little or nothing about the events surrounding this important date in American history. Interestingly, two women with foreign accents appeared to know the basic details about the 4th of July.

Early American Patriots had little patience for the taxes and regulations forced on them by the British government. The Colonies had no sitting Representatives in English Parliament. Taxes were levied without any discussion or concern about the effect on the Colonists. There were ‘status quo’ types then as there are now – people who just want everything to go on as usual. And then you had those who didn’t care – if there was a television in those days, these people would be watching it.

You also had the Tea Party people in those days. They clearly saw as written in the Declaration of Independence, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”. In those days as today; arrogant, power hungry, government leaders trampled on the rights of the people and ridiculed ‘Tea Party’ types.

Is it any wonder that students of the US government school system are no longer taught American history? Consider this quote from the 1st paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed,  That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

These are dangerous words – dangerous to a government that wants to tax and control the C02 coming out of your mouth.

It’s critically important to the socialist-communists controlling the United States today, that all vestiges of American Founding Fathers influence and teachings be removed. Events leading up to Independence Day are too dangerous for free minds to meditate on. In fact, free minds are dangerous to this sitting government.

It’s obvious for any casual student of history that the Founding Fathers would never have put up with the actions of today’s tax, regulate, and war sponsoring government. As we celebrate 234 years of the American Experiment, the most unique form of government ever in history, we have to ask ourselves – what are we celebrating today?

Does independence Day celebrate welfare state? Nearly half of all Americans now draw a government check. Is that what the Founding Fathers meant by ‘independence’? We’ve handed over our personal decision making abilities on health care to a monolithic federal government that is infested with zero population growth mutants. Our currency is controlled by a private bank set up by the federal government. They can print and spend whatever they want – until our economy collapses.

Our farming industry is controlled by the federal government. They tell farmer s what they may grow and what they cannot. They are given taxpayer money to plow over fields and grow nothing. They are paid extra taxpayer money and then our valuable produce is placed in a storage bin to rot. Taxpayers fund American food programs all over the world – food given to people who hate America.

Americans are told what to drive, what to eat, where to go to school, who to like and dislike, and what values to exhibit. Religion like cigarettes is to be practiced at home and never brought out in public.

The federal government is scheming to outlaw all guns in violation of the 2nd Amendment.

Manufacturing is under attack by our own federal government. Real jobs have been fleeing America for decades thanks to the policies of our government.

So how will you celebrate Independence Day today? Will it be beer, burgers, and brawling? Or will it be a time when you reflect on the gift our Founding Fathers gave us over two hundred years ago. Will you take a few minutes to teach your children today what it meant to be a Patriot during the Revolutionary War years? What true sacrifice meant? What Independence Day means today?

The socialist-communists in America today work 24/7 to bring down the American Experiment. That’s all they do. Now what will you do to stop it?

“The last hope of human liberty in this world rests on us. We ought, for so dear a state to sacrifice every attachment and every enmity.”

Chickens with guns

Chickens with guns

Chickens with guns

A predator attacked our chickens recently. It was early morning, around 3:30am. The sound woke us up. It was a horrible sound of death. 12 chickens making a desperate cry that screamed – “please come quickly we need help now!” I will never forget that sound as long as I live.

I rushed outside with my gun just in time to save every one of them. The predator, an opossum, was momentarily stunned by my flashlight and it gave me time to fire a few rounds at it. Amid the confusion and drama, the offending opossum ran off. Presumably to find an easier dinner at a less hostile place.

The chickens were scared nearly to death. Apparently, the electric fence surrounding the chicken house was turned off and the little door that locks them safely inside their home, was never closed. This allowed the opossum to enter under the electric fence and then walk into the chicken house. Once inside, pandemonium broke loose. The chickens ran for their lives, making as much noise as they could on the way out.

The drama kept me awake for hours afterward. I wondered as I lay in bed if people make the same desperate sound when they’re attacked by a human or animal predator. As they see their lives ending in the next few minutes. When they realize that it’s all over. As evil eyes paired with superior strength or the advantage of ambush fix on yours.

The chickens did something strange. After abandoning the chicken house, they lay down in the grass outside. It was as if they were preparing to die. They seemed to say, “in the face of death, we’re going to lay down and accept it.” Do people do the same thing?

Suppose however, these chickens had guns. Now stay with me here for a minute. The opossum walks into the chicken house for an easy dinner. While chickens are no physical match for an opossum, these chickens have guns. One chicken calmly pulls out a .22 and puts a bullet in the opossum. Now instead of 3,6, or 8 dead chickens, there is one dead opossum.

So what’s the point? Guns can be great equalizers when in the hands of someone faced against superior physical strength. We can’t provide 24 hour a day and 7 day a week security for our chickens. There are times when we are not there when predators visit. 14 chickens found this out over the past year. All that was left of them were bloody feathers.

What about people though? All too often we become victims of human predators. Police officers do a great job of solving violent crimes. Unfortunately, there are way too many times when the crime is solved after the victim is in a body bag or in the grave. Because like our chickens, they just couldn’t get there in time. The simple truth is, you’re vulnerable 99% of the time. Unless you live in solitary confinement in a jail cell somewhere.

But the US federal government is promoting a concept of a safer US when guns are banned. That’s why they in concert with their puff piece writers in the press, are in a desperate race to implement a complete gun ban on all citizens except US government officials. Another crisis solved. Of course, people in Mexico, Rwanda, and other countries won’t agree. In Rwanda, women and children were hacked to death with machetes in fighting between Hutus and Tutsis. They didn’t feel safer without guns – they were dead.

Disarming Americans is another opiate for the uneducated masses. No one will be safer. In fact, violent crime will go up along with injury and death. Women and senior citizens will continue to be targets and with greater frequency. But that’s of no concern to the US federal government. Because their real agenda is command and control of the masses. Not more safety.

So when you hear about gun bans, which are unconstitutional by the way, ask about crime statistics in other countries with gun bans. The shocking truth is more people are brutalized, more are assaulted, more are killed – after gun bans.
