Gun Control: What Obama Should Have Said
First, Obama should have surrounded himself with pictures of the children who have died at the hands of madmen Marxist leaders like Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao Zedong, Idi Amin and others. History is littered with them, both crazed rulers and dead children.
Secondly, Obama should have recited the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution, and recommitted his administration to following the the Constitution and the rule of law.
Thirdly, he should have said “Never again will children such as these be slaughtered because they, or their parents, were unable to defend themselves against a tyrannical government or any other person bent on their destruction.”
Fourthly, he should have said, “The brainwashing and twisting of our children’s minds must stop! Henceforth, I am calling for a cessation of violence in movies, television and video games that are twisting young minds.”
Fifthly, he should have said, “I put every violent criminal in our nation on notice – you killers, robbers, thugs, burglars and rapists – that every law-abiding citizen in this nation is hereby given the right to self-defense by whatever means they choose, including firearms of any type. I hereby encourage every citizen of our nation to become responsibly armed, to take self-defense and safety training to learn how to use your weapons effectively and safely, and to protect your family and other innocents in your sphere of influence. The era of criminal violence in America is over!”
However, the president can say none of this because his administration is already an adversary of the people. People can debate Marxism as a philosophy as long as they want, but when it comes down to practice, Marxism has always produced a murderous dictator in the end… and Obama appears to be headed that way, and if not Obama, then some future president who picks up where he will leave off.
The public hysteria surrounding the gun control issue is simply amazing. I heard one female politician state that we have to do away with guns that can hold “hundreds of bullets.” Yet, there is no such weapon in America.
The irrational claim, even by military officials, that “We don’t need weapons in America that are used only in war zones” is equally ridiculous. All of the AR-style rifles in America are semi-automatic, meaning that you must pull the trigger each time to fire a round. By contrast, all AR-style weapons carried by military troops are fully automatic, meaning you pull and hold the trigger to empty the entire magazine. Furthermore, the military carries armor piercing ammunition that is illegal for civilian ownership.
Otherwise, a civilian AR-style rifle is no different than any other rifle – one trigger-pull equals one round fired. If you have ever seen how fast (under one second) one can switch magazines you would know that it doesn’t matter if that magazine holds 5, 20 or 50 rounds.
Now that “assault rifles” are thoroughly discredited and thrashed by the president and the vigilante mob of gun-haters, what will happen when they wake up and realize that 98 percent of all deaths-by-firearm are caused by handguns and NOT rifles of any sort?
That’s right, the rhetoric will re-focus and the drive will be on to outlaw semi-automatic pistols and revolvers.
And this gets us down to the real crux of the matter: The state wants all the guns – pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, all calibers, all ammunition, etc.
An unarmed citizenry is unable to resist a tyrannical government and thus is no threat to it.
The Hidden Prize: National gun owner registry
The precondition to outright gun confiscation is a unified and comprehensive national gun owner and gun-owned registry. By requiring the owner and receiver of all transfers of any weapon to be registered, the existing database will swell to hundreds of millions within a few years.
Until 1968, there was no requirement nor registration for gun ownership. Thereafter, successive Administrations ramped up data collection procedures and created sophisticated databases on gun owners. However, guns owned prior to 1968 have not been registered, nor have private sales or inter-family gifts; many collections of unregistered firearms have been quietly passed to heirs upon death of a parent or close relative.
There are no accurate statistics on how many gun owners reside in the U.S., nor on the total quantity of guns owned. A Gallup poll from 2010 showed that 47 percent of American’s admitted to owning a firearm, but experts concluded that the actual percentage might be as high as 60 percent.
Statisticians believe that there are between 240 and 280 million firearms in America, but that cannot accurately include pre-1968 purchases so the figure could be considerably higher. Most gun owners whom I have met typically have at least 2 firearms, and many have several.
A national registry database would thus cover at least 150 million people and 300 million firearms – with all the “trimmings” like photograph, fingerprints, questionnaires and other personal information.
Meanwhile, Obama has ordered other Federal agencies to provide complimentary data to the FBI as these databases are built. Medical personnel will be expected to submit psycho-graphic analysis. Financial history, criminal history, medical history, social history, etc., etc., will be combined. Software algorithms will then analyze the profiles for “red flags.” Predictability software will determine which people are most likely to cause trouble in the future.
Any soldier who has been diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) will be automatically banned from owning or possessing a firearm. That amounts to as much as 16 percent of all veterans.
Have you ever taken drugs for depression or anxiety? That could be a troubling warning sign that you are unfit to own a firearm.
Thus, once all this data is in place, future background checks take on a whole new look. Just as the TSA’s “No Fly” database yields very unpredictable results, so too will the gun owner’s database.
The final consideration is that if, as and when outright gun confiscation becomes a reality, the Feds will know exactly who to call on with a specific list of your guns in hand.
Two of the early requirements listed for the creation of a Technocratic society were
- “Provide a specific registration of the type, kind, etc., of all goods and services, where produced and where used
- “Provide specific registration of the consumption of each individual, plus a record and description of the individual.” [Scott, Howard et al, Technocracy Study Course, p. 232]
Gun control mania offers the perfect crisis to implement just such a system.
New battles start
States are threatening legislation that will block federal mandates on gun control. They will likely fail, even if they take their cases to the Supreme Court.
One consumer group, Freedom Watch, just released news of their lawsuit:
The conservative group FreedomWatch is suing the White House task force that led to the gun control proposals offered by President Barack Obama Wednesday.
FreedomWatch’s suit is based on the argument that the White House group conducted illegal meetings with lobbyists without public notice that’s required. The suit, which was filed in Florida federal court, seeks to eliminate the task force and prevent any of its proposals from becoming law, The Hill reports.
The 1972 Federal Advisory Committee Act requires presidential task forces that include non-federal government officials to meet in public and publish notice of meetings in the Federal Register 15 days ahead of time.
“President Obama and Vice President Biden have thumbed their nose at the law and instead been holding closed door meetings with special interest lobbyists on both sides of the issue,” FreedomWatch founder Larry Klayman said in a written statement. “The American people, whose rights to gun ownership stem from colonial times and are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, are being illegally shut out of the process.”
The twists and turns that lie ahead will be certain to inflame already overheated tempers between the political parties and their respective constituents.
A good percentage of F&F readers will disagree with my analysis. That’s your right, to be sure. However, if you have not read America’s founding documents (Declaration of Independence, Bill of Rights, Constitution), and are unaware of the political history our nation and of applied Marxism, then you have little to contribute to this debate. If you are simply under-informed, I encourage you start reading and learning today – your future is at stake. If you are willfully uninformed, then I suggest you are part of the problem, not the solution.
