rebuttals to "Gun Control"
Manasquan, NJ -- Since breaking the story of NY State Gun Owner David Lewis being ordered to turn in his guns by NY State Police skyrocketed to the center of the National conversation on Gun Control/Gun Rights last week, going viral overnight and being discussed as the lead story on "The Blaze", "The Glenn Beck Show", NY State talk radio, local NY State News Stations and the Megyn Kelly Show on Fox News on Friday.
But now, even more disturbing revelations have come to light.
NY State Talk Radio Host Tom Bauerle discussed on his program that several sources inside NY State Govt have told him that the Dept of Homeland Security played an active role in meeting and collaborating with NY State Officials to develop and implement the confiscation scheme that targeted David Lewis and an as yet unknown number of others.
News out of Missouri has recently revealed that Govt Officials in that State have been transmitting the records of all State Residents holding firearms carry permits to the Dept of Homeland Security as well.
Its easy enough to say that the situation in NY is a "one off", "happenstance" incident with no evil intentions and blame it on a confusing State Law that was rushed through the Legislature without anyone reading it or understanding its real world effects.
But when the same activity The Dept of Homeland Security is alleged to be deeply involved in: in two separate States with exerting their powers to collect information on private American Citizens who have committed no crime and own firearms, then that is not a coincidence, its the beginning of a peak behind the current of exactly what the Federal Govt is up to.
If you've ever put together a puzzle, you know that the jumbled, individual pieces make it nearly impossible to determine what the end result will look like, but as you slowly and methodically start to identify where those individual pieces fit, a recognizable picture begins to take shape.
So lets look at the puzzle pieces we already have and see if we can determine what kind of picture they might produce once they are all assembled.
We know there has been a concentrated propaganda and smear campaign conducted against millions of American Citizens, as well as Veterans, as "potential domestic terrorists". Whether this type of propaganda is disseminated by individual hate groups or by a government, it serves only one malevolent purpose the World over, to dehumanize the targeted group and make it socially palatable to attack them.
We know that at least some Officials at both the State and Federal Level, having a long and well established history of obsessive Anti Gun statements and policy actions have already acknowledged that firearms confiscation was a policy goal.
We know that those same rabidly Anti Gun Officials at both the State and Federal Level, as well as many, many others, such as the tyrannical mayor of Gotham, Micheal Bloomberg, and Vice President Biden have been single mindedly focused on banning and confiscating the most common and popular types of firearms in America, so called "Assault Weapons" which also happen to be the best platforms for self defense against multiple attackers.
We know that DHS has yet to provide a credible and reasonable explanation for their purchase of over 2 billion rounds of hollow point ammunition, enough to fight a war for almost 25 years, but a round that is banned by the Geneva Convention from use in International Warfare. (Editors Note, the linked article was written when the purchase amount was "only" one billion rounds, a figure that has since doubled in the span of a few months.)
We know that there have been multiple credible reports dating back to last Summer, including pictures; about The Dept of Homeland Security acquiring and distributing across the Country heavily armored MRAPP vehicles painted menacingly in flat black, sporting gun ports and Anti Rocket metal bars across the windows, but lettered innocuously as "Rescue Vehicles".
We know that DHS also purchased several thousand armored check point booths, sort of "mobile" toll booth style structures, for as yet unknown and thus far unexplained purposes. The most likely of which is the establishment of checkpoints.
And we know that the pending Manchin-Toomey deal on expanded Background Checks has nothing so much to do with punishing criminal misuse of firearms, as it does with preventing people from acquiring firearms without the Government knowing who has them.
Taken as individual pieces of the puzzle, any one of these points is easily discarded as "not fitting", what we imagine in our minds the actual end picture looks like. But when one endeavors to put those pieces together, and entertain the idea that they may actually fit where they do, you eventually reach a point of critical mass and the end picture suddenly snaps into stark focus.
The end picture of these various activities and policies at both the State and Federal Level is rapidly approaching that "critical mass" stage and what is emerging and should be self evident from the puzzle pieces enumerated in this analysis is a picture of only one thing.
By all outward appearances, the Government is actively preparing to go to War with a significant portion of its own Citizens.
"The duty of a patriot is to protect his country from its government." – Thomas Paine
"The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men." – Samuel Adams
