A Right Unexercised…

O-Dem-CrosshairsAs the adage goes, “A right unexercised is a right lost.” This is something that every American who values their Liberty and understands that the Second Amendment is the only thing protecting it had best remember because, right now, Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), and a rogues gallery of other Left-wing politicians and agitators are trying to confiscate American’s firearms.

They are actually considering a law that would create a program to purchase weapons from gun owners and make the sale of those weapons to the state compulsory. This is not hysteria or hyperbole; they’re considering criminalizing a variety of classes of firearms and the confiscation of legally purchased examples of those weapons. Cuomo, unsurprisingly, went further and offered confiscation and mandatory sale to the State as two separate alternatives for semiautomatic rifles and shotguns, thereby indicating that he would use naked force to disarm the population of New York.

Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

– Patrick Henry
June 5, 1788

It’s a sad day for America when the government seeks tyranny and the last, best hope for our freedom, our children’s freedom, and our children’s children’s freedom is that enough of the people will realize that their optimism was poorly placed and that they, just as our forbears, must consider the use of force to combat that government. It’s a sadder day for America when it’s unlikely that enough will consider the use of force in order to change things before it’s too late to do so cleanly.

    Just talking about doing something stupid is not really grounds to start another Lexington and Concord thing but, if they actually begin door to door confiscation like Hitler,Mao,George lll,then maybe its time to rethink this whole deal thats turning our country into ..I don’t know what…can’t put a label on it,yet. We can only hope the police and the military have enough sense to see whats happening and act accordingly. I wonder how many weapons and ammo have been buried/hidden. The bad thing about that..too many books have been written on the subject and They know where you hid things before you even do……

    I don’t necessarily think that it’s time for insurrection either but one has to ask which is better, a few politicians and/or their families being assassinated or the deaths of numerous rank and file police officers who would be enforcing these unconstitutional laws.

    But, in any event, there’d hopefully be no Lexington and Concord thing because that would be doomed to bloody failure. History teaches us to learn from the Afgans in these matters and not engage in open battles.

    Jonolan,

    I believe the gun Bolsheviks have escalated the battle.

    Hopefully, some Americans will exterminate these media filth and their families now that we’ve got their addresses.
