Evidence mounts that the federal government is corrupt and is operating outside the Constitution. I might write about it. Others might write about it. But when Sheriffs across the land increasingly vocalize their resistance to unconstitutional laws; when states pass legislation to refuse to comply with federal restrictions on guns, we are not just a bunch of nuts whining about gun laws.
The federal government, particularly Barack Obama and Eric Holder might want to pay attention here. They are losing the PR battle when it comes to the Second Amendment. Instead of making the supporters of the Second Amendment look like nuts who just want to kill people, they are convincing the other half of the nation that the government is full of nuts who just want to kill people.
It wasn't so long ago when those of us in the patriot/liberty community spoke about resistance we were shrugged off. When we spoke of unconstitutional laws we were ignored. When we called out the President and the Attorney General as Marxists who wanted to disarm the American people to force their collectivist policies on people we were shouted down as unreasonable and delusional.
That isn't happening now. People are reading stories of excessive laws like those which have ensnared Nathan Haddad and Keith Pantaleon and recognize that something is wrong. When Chicago produces a higher body count than Afghanistan day in and day out with some of the strictest gun laws in the nation, the charge that more gun restrictions will lead to safety fall on ever more deaf ears.
The traitorous media refuses to print the daily instances where guns have saved lives and it rises to the millions in a given year. In Atlanta a student shot a 14-year-old at a middle school before an armed volunteer overpowered him. Not the police, somebody at the scene. A Sandy Hook was averted by the presence of a gun in a school and it just slipped by unnoticed except on the Drudge Report and The Blaze.
The equal division of the nation's people is being forged by the Obama Administration and I would like to think it was an error in judgment on the part of the President, but I have seen too many instances where division and strife were exactly what he wanted to achieve. So he has his divided society between "rednecks" and sycophantic liberals. He has driven a wedge between federal law enforcement and local law enforcement.
If it is the President's intent to create a white-hot issue with people preparing themselves to die to defend the Constitution just to see how much they believe in this nation; what it stands for; what our military men have died for, he's about to see it.
It will get out of control. Until now these men, Haddad and Pantaleon have acquiesced to law enforcement when they knocked, but there will come a time, a person, who will not and that is when the whole issue will put people between a rock and a hard place. Good LEO's might have to obey the laws of their states and force a confrontation with the feds. People might come to the aid of a person sticking to their statements and refusing to let themselves be arrested. Reinforcements might arrive instead of the traitorous media.
What then? Do you know what side you will be on? There comes a time to stand up and many readers of this blog are there. Many Americans are there.
This is not just about guns. This issue arises after the Patriot Act has been signed producing DHS and TSA and all of the abuses of those organizations. It comes after the federal government has listened in on innocent phone conversations; after labeling veterans like Haddad as domestic terrorists; it comes after NDAA; it comes after "hate speech"; after hundreds of other freedoms have been obliterated by Obamacare.
Other gun laws have been passed before without this sort of outrage. Why? Because of the previous paragraph, because after a long train of abuses it comes down to the Second Amendment, the one that can restore the others. The federal government has felt that if it can get past the initial resistance that these abuses will just sort of work their way into the American experience. What they don't understand is that they don't, not for all of us. Instead they pile one abuse on top of another, none are forgotten or forgiven, they are stacked like a deck of cards until the weight is unbearable and something snaps.
We are there and we are ready to fight, because we are ready to die. The people know deep down that these threats to regulate, register and confiscate our weapons is the last item on the agenda leading to absolute despotism. They are the prelude to everything our fighting men have died to oppose over the past centuries. There is something just un-American about it and they can't stomach it.
The harder they push, the stronger we get. As one commenter wrote: "Be careful when you pry my gun from my cold dead hand, the barrel will be hot."
