rebuttals to "Gun Control"
Milwaukee, Wisconsin Chief of Police Ed Flynn is hopefully going to be out of a job soon. This is a good thing. Take a deep breath and read this excerpt from a recent Associated Press release.
MADISON (AP) — Milwaukee’s police chief said today he’ll go on telling his officers to take down anyone with a firearm despite Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen’s finding that people can carry guns openly if they do it peacefully.
Chief Flynn then goes on to further dig his own professional grave:
“My message to my troops is if you see anybody carrying a gun on the streets of Milwaukee, we’ll put them on the ground, take the gun away and then decide whether you have a right to carry it.”
Maybe Flynn’s lackeys will also start blowing out tires before checking for drivers licenses?
It’s been said before: When the police make the laws, it’s called a “Police State”.
To get some idea of where this type of criminal arrogance can lead, read JPFO’s exposé of how Hitler’s “gun control” laws in Germany were actually imported into our own Gun Control Act of 1968. (see "Gun Control" - Gateway to Tyranny ). It’s always for “public safety”.
Back to Milwaukee: Wisconsin has had legal open carry for 137 years. This law isn’t something recently cooked up by the “Vast Right Wing Conspiracy”. The Attorney General simply reminded this particular Goon-In-Blue that he (and his “troops”?) must now obey the law.
Flynn’s idiocy continues as he asserts that felons carrying guns will now do so openly! Like the cops don’t know who each of these guys are from mug shots that would cover a pool table? Please! Flynn should pray that the dirt bags pack openly! A slam dunk arrest and conviction!
But there is deeper, more sinister, issue at work here. It is a somber matter that few Americans are at all aware of:
No police officer has ANY duty whatsoever to protect you!
JPFO has done meticulous research on this troubling fact of life. (See "Dial 911 and Die") A huge cover up of the truth is taking place in Milwaukee (and anywhere else the police would like to see you disarmed).
Chief Flynn, in typical GovCrim authoritarian style, is only telling you part of the story. He’s telling you that you are not allowed to protect yourself, but NOT telling you that he and his men have no duty to do so!
Directly related to this state of affairs, a JPFO funded lawsuit has been filed in Federal Court against the city of West Milwaukee and three police officers. On its face it seems like no contest. Three cops unlawfully disarmed and detained a peaceable man (exercising his right to carry a firearm openly in Wisconsin), and confiscated his private property in the process. There were some other denigrating rogue cop mind games involved as well. (Refer to this PDF file)
Seeing that the Attorney General’s finding hasn’t yet slapped Chief Flynn awake, perhaps it will take more. If the cops lose this civil rights suit, it will send a sharp edged (and expensive) message to Wisconsin police: Leave openly armed and peaceful citizens alone.
But be careful! Many other Wisconsin citizens will find discomfort in this court victory for gun owners. Guns scare them. They’ve been effectively brainwashed (many of them from their earliest years) by the victim disarmament bottom feeders. (Read Sarah Thompson's essay - "Raging Against Self Defense")
The political pressure to BAN open carry in Wisconsin will shift into overdrive. And you can bet the vermin like Sarah Brady and Paul Helmke of Handgun Control Inc. will come slithering, flapping, and cawing over the Wisconsin horizon.
And then, because Wisconsin is one of only two States that prohibit concealed carry, it will come down to open carry versus concealed carry. And this, despite the fact that the Second Amendment makes absolutely no distinction between the two. Please take advantage of JPFO’s free download, the best explanation of the Second Amendment you can find. Share it with friends and family.
Herein lies the potential danger to your liberties, whether you live in Wisconsin or not: When you carry openly in Wisconsin (each state is certainly a bit different) there is no gun registration involved. It is just as legal to carry a legitimately unregistered firearm as a registered one. More importantly, you haven’t had to register YOURSELF as a gun owner.
On the other hand, if open carry in Wisconsin is banned by an act of the Wisconsin legislature (leading other corrupted States to mimic the maneuver), and concealed carry takes its place, an immense step towards gun registration will have slipped into play. Because concealed carry will require a license, and the mandatory registration of both you and your concealed firearm. Again, go visit the link to those Nazi German “gun control” laws.
For twenty years, JPFO has fervently advocated the abolition of ALL gun registration. Take every “gun control” law off the books. All of them. The abuse of firearms registration lists over the last one hundred years by governments-gone-bad is horrific. So many times the story has been: Register, Confiscate, Exterminate. (See JPFO's Genocide Chart)
If a convicted criminal is such a danger to society that he should be prohibited from owning or carrying a firearm, WHY IS HE EVEN ON THE STREETS? The same goes for certified lunatics. These are such common sense questions! Why aren’t the deceptive cops, or the sleazy gun prohibitionists, asking them?
To a great degree the answer lies in what Gus Cotey calls the “Security Monopolist” cabal. (See "Seven Varieties of Gun Control Advocate") Cops like Flynn want to expand their power via the reduction of yours. They want a dependent, unarmed populace whose taxes will fund a burgeoning number of their “troops”.
And then Milwaukee’s Police Chief Flynn and his sycophantic storm troopers will really get a chance to decide who to “take down”.
