“The 2nd Amendment is all that has kept this increasingly tyrannical government from turning on us with full force. Its far easier to establish a one world dictatorship when the country you are trying to overtake has no means to fight back. There will continue to be mass shootings until we forfeit our 2nd Amendment…….then just as suddenly as they appeared, the mass shootings will stop. Except…..those committed by the government.”
With the American public increasingly distrustful of government on all levels, the “war for your rights” is in full swing. The recent event in Orlando is the new catalyst for pushing for gun control, and those weak-kneed individuals who still believe government exists to protect them and keep them safe are whining and crying all over the net, in local newspapers and of course, mainstream media.
While MSM in particular attempts to paint those who resist the attempts to undermine the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms, as “right wing extremists” and, “religious bible thumping fanatics”, I can assure you nothing could be further from the truth. I live in a heavily Democratic area and I know of no one…NOT ONE PERSON…who will not defend this right, and who would not fight to keep it. The intentional efforts to separate and divide the public so that we fight one another rather than focus on the real threat to safety in our communities, runs none stop.
Have you noticed that these shootings “coincidentally” occur just in time for more rights robbing legislation to land on the floor of the house and senate in every state, and federally? Somehow, these bills were magically prepared and just showed up simultaneously within hours after one of these events and all claim to spring from the need to make communities safer.
In the mix is, of course, the efforts to demonize gun rights organizations. At the top of that list is the NRA. Having been chronic defenders of the 2nd Amendment against government encroachment, MSM has used every possible venue to make them appear to be a “terroristic” organization.
Even the Oathkeeper’s organization which exists to protect your rights and refuses to obey unconstitutional orders that might be levied against the public, are portrayed as “terrorists” or right wing extremists. I am assuming that this attitude is coming from those who stand in opposition to the Constitution and our natural rights and liberties.
(Personally, I believe the Southern Poverty Law Center represents more of a terroristic threat than the NRA or Oathkeepers. But that’s just me.)
“I’m from the government and I’m here to
hurt help you”
This should be the public motto of government agents and agencies. We have the NOAH, FDA, USDA, BLM and other government agencies all sporting their own militarized enforcement arms.
Dozens of federal agencies now have Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams to further an expanding definition of their missions. It’s not controversial that the Secret Service and the Bureau of Prisons have them. But what about the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service? All of these have their own SWAT units and are part of a worrying trend towards the militarization of federal agencies — not to mention local police forces.

These enforcement agents all sport military weapons including tanks, grenade launchers, attack dogs, swat teams, helicopters, and in some instances…snipers. Who is it you think these agencies are preparing to attack? Iran? Syria? Who? I think you know the answer…..they are gunning for YOU!
American vs American
Remember the old MAD magazine cartoons called “Spy v Spy”? These days it is American vs American, as many have decided its safer to align themselves with those who wish to harm us, than to stand with us and fight to preserve what is rightfully ours.
As a reminder, national security or homeland security, whichever moniker makes you feel warmer and fuzzier, does not include us commoners out here in no-mans land. Whether national or homeland, the security they refer to is the securing of their own safety against a public that has become increasingly weary of the unlawful, increasingly tyrannical nature of government.
If you still buy into the thinking that HSD exists for your benefit…why are they spying on you? Why are your private emails scanned and read? Your phone conversations tapped? Why the scan-able license plates that allow law enforcement to track you on the roads and highways? Why are there cameras installed absolutely every place you can think of? Why are they forcing REAL ID including biometric markers, fingerprints, iris scans, all to be loaded into databases as they construct files on you. Are you a terrorist? A possible terrorist? A suspected terrorist? A domestic terrorist? You’re not? Then why does your name appear on one or more of these lists? And I can almost certainly assure you that it does……you just don’t know it.
Keep in mind that law enforcement now kills more people each year than any other group or collection of individuals do.
So, I can only surmise that if we are to make communities safer, maybe the first thing we should do is to de-militarize law enforcement. Take them out from under Homeland Security and return them to public servants. Then maybe end the drone programs that are springing up all over the country many of which can be armed. Then, taking military style enforcement away from federal agencies especially those used to attack private citizens, and maybe things would start to calm down.
With all the sudden activity in virtually every state to enact “gun control”, maybe we need to assess and identify who the ongoing threat to the American public actually is. Safe communities should include being safe from government actors armed to the teeth and intent upon causing harm while violating your rights and claiming they are doing it in the name of national security and implying that it somehow is for your benefit and safety.
