Most people agree that Connecticut is the litmus test for gun control in America. While the police and gun owners flex their muscles, shake their fists, and throw barbs at one another, America is waiting to see whether the police move against the now criminalized people in an attempt to confiscate their guns. What happens in Connecticut could be a pivotal turning point in our Second Amendment fight. That is why we must stand with our fellow Patriots and not allow their Constitutional rights to be trampled on like so much garbage. Connecticut is only the beginning. Today Connecticut, tomorrow Texas.
The ultimate goal of the gun control is to disarm America. Enslaving an unarmed populace is easier than oppressing people who can protect themselves. Governments have done this throughout history. There are new reports about this hot topic and the laws coming out of Washington DC and the different states every day.
All over America lawmakers are fighting in one side or the other in the gun control issue. Red states want guns. Blue states want to confiscate and in some cases jail gun owners. The divide between the red and blue states is becoming alarming. I recently heard a popular Internet celebrity encourage conservatives who live in blue states to move to a red one.
Sheriffs all over the nation are combating the encroaching gun laws and publicly declaring their refusal to support them. In most states, the Sheriff is the highest law enforcement officer in the county, and in others the Governors have stripped them of their ability to make to a simple arrest. Some states deny federal agents the authority to enforce gun laws and have stated their plans to arrest anyone who tries.
Gun laws are not the only convoluted laws being forced on Americans. Many of us saw the picture of the 20,000-page, 7-foot tall stack of Obamacare regulations. They purposely designed these new laws to destroy our economy and hurt middle and low income Americans. While its proper name is the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, it does anything but protect patients. Obamacare is a massive pile of complex rules and regulations that few of us understand, including Congress who voted for it.
Why are they writing new ridiculous laws with such a staggering impact on so many people? Why is our government working so hard to tear our country apart? There are several reasons for these new laws designed to make so many things illegal.
I found a compelling quote from the novel, Atlas Shrugged, written by Ayn Rand and made into a two-part movie. Russian born Ayn Rand moved to the United States in the mid-1920s. She wrote several successful plays and novels based on her experience in Russia. In Atlas Shrugged, her last and most famous novel, she dramatized her unique philosophy in an intellectual mystery, integrating ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, politics, economics and sex. After this, she wrote and lectured on her philosophy—Objectivism, which she characterized as a philosophy for living on earth. This quote is fiction, but she based it on real life, government, and human nature, and it partly explains our expansive new laws:
“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
The successful implementation of these news gun laws will cause havoc in America. This one issue is at the heart of American uniqueness and freedom. Washington wants to turn law-abiding citizens into criminals. They’re betting most of us will not give up our guns and will fight registration and confiscation. In 2009, some 310 million guns were in the US owned by approximately 20 to 50 percent of the population. While they will not immediately ban all of these weapons, Senator Diane Feinstein and those of her ilk are prepared to move heaven and earth to take our guns. One method is by turning peace-loving, patriotic Americans into criminals overnight.
Barack Obama wants to make us a nation of lawbreakers. He has written hundreds of Executive Orders under the shadow of darkness. In 2012 he signed the National Defense Authorization Act, giving them absolute power to arrest and detain anyone indefinitely without a trial. A recent one, the National Defense Resources Preparedness, gives them power to take our personal property if they decide they need it. HR357 criminalizes disruptive behavior on government grounds, at specially designated national events (Super Bowl, nominating conventions, etc.) and anywhere Secret Service is protecting any person. The Secret Service protects a lot of people at a lot of events. They decide what constitutes disruptive behavior.
Laws are being slipped in under all kinds of conditions. Americans could soon get into trouble without knowing why. We are becoming a nation of lawbreakers, not because we are criminals, but because criminals are writing the laws. Ayn Rand understood and spoke out against corrupt governments. Could Atlas Shrugged possibly be a harbinger of things to come? I don’t know, but if Barack Obama has his way, it will.
