Eric “Nuke ‘Em” Swalwell Wants To Take Your Guns And Jail Anyone Who Resists | Zero Hedge

Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper on Sunday, Swalwell – who last year joked about nuking gun owners who refuse to give up their firearms –  discussed his longstanding proposal to ban so-called ‘assault weapons.’

I foresee a real messy “civil war” if they try.

It’s a “hill” that many, if not all, gun owners will die on.

We all know that without “gun control” genocide would be impossible.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” — apocryphal unsourced quote attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

It just can’t happen without a lot of bloodshed.

New Zealand Gang Refuses To Give Up Their Guns

Thursday, April 4, 2019

We’ve often countered arguments in favor of gun bans by pointing out that criminals aren’t going to give up their guns. This is often laughed at by anti-gunners, either that or they argue it’s irrelevant for some ridiculous reason.Now, with New Zealand on the cusp of banning certain firearms, the nation’s most notorious gang has vowed not to give up their guns.

(1) Criminals don’t disarm because of any law, diktat, or regulation.

(2) One of the sparks of the American revolution was the attempt by the British Army to seize munitions at Lexington and Concord.  Look how that worked out!

(3) Isn’t self-defense a basic human right?

(4) The Gooferment has abrogated, by its own court decisions (i.e., no specific duty to protect anyone), its end of the supposed “social contract” (i.e., the citizen pledges allegiance and the government pledges protection).

“Inasmuch as the Constitution was never signed, nor agreed to, by anybody, as a contract, and therefore never bound anybody, and is now binding upon nobody; and is, moreover, such an one as no people can ever hereafter be expected to consent to, except as they may be forced to do so at the point of the bayonet, it is perhaps of no importance what its true legal meaning, as a contract, is. Nevertheless, the writer thinks it proper to say that, in his opinion, the Constitution is no such instrument as it has generally been assumed to be; but that by false interpretations, and naked usurpations, the government has been made in practice a very widely, and almost wholly, different thing from what the Constitution itself purports to authorize. He has heretofore written much, and could write much more, to prove that such is the truth. But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case, it is unfit to exist.” Lysander Spooner (1808-1887), No Treason (1870) http://praxeology.net/LS-NT-6.htm#no.6

(5) One theory of “human rights” is that you are only entitled to those rights that you are willing to fight, and die, for. Those, that you earn, you get to keep.  All rights are God given!

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn

“From my cold dead hand” is more than a bumper sticker. It’s a challenge to any would be genocidal tyrant.

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.” — apocryphal unsourced quote attributed to Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

So too, you can disarm the American people without their own cooperation.

GUNS: HRC is coming for the guns. Molon labe!

Hillary Clinton: “Reasonable” to Require Guns to be Unusable at Home
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2016

*** begin quote **

The candidate who claimed politicians “need both a public and a private position” on policy issues demonstrated that tendency Wednesday night in the final presidential debate in a desperate bid for damage control on a statement she made in a private meeting with wealthy donors.

That earlier statement was simple, uncomplicated, and utterly damning to anyone who believes in the Second Amendment. Hillary Clinton told the very people who she depends on to fund her political ambitions: “the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment. And I am going to make that case every chance I get.”

As a Yale-educated attorney, Clinton knew exactly what she was saying when she made that remark. But it doesn’t take a lawyer to understand the contempt it demonstrates for the right to keep and bear arms.

*** and ***

First, the District’s ban didn’t just require safe storage to prevent access by toddlers. It made possessing a loaded, usable firearm in the home – including for self-defense – a crime. The crime did not require proof of access by children or even proof that children were present in the home. Clinton’s answer also seemed suspiciously coincidental with a recent, dubious media blitz on firearm accidents among children.

*** end quote ***

The Second Amendment is the true palladium of liberty.

Document 7

St. George Tucker, Blackstone’s Commentaries 1:App. 300
1803

This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.

GUNS: Gooferment Skrules are idiotic too

FROM FACEBOOK

*** begin quote ***

Greg Morin

So my 9th grade son is taking AP government and his coy teacher says she won’t reveal her political leanings…but then gives it away with her idiotic opinion of the 2nd amendment is being used wrong because it means only people in a militia can have guns. Sigh.

So in providing my son with the basis for an argument to proffer to her as to why that is wrong it suddenly dawned on me how truly absurd that position is. A militia by definition must be armed. An unarmed militia is like an orchestra with no instruments. Why would you create an amendment to protect a right that is implied in the nature of the thing. It would be like guaranteeing all doctors the right to keep and bear scalpels, or fireman the right to keep and bear hoses.

*** end quote ***

We have to de-federalize the military and get back to state militias and troops under the control of their governors and funded by the individual States. 

Military Industrial Complex, that Ike warned us about, leads to a military run amok.

Argh!

GUNS: END GUN FREE ZONES NOW!

STRICT GUN CONTROL, BANS IMPOTENT AS TERRORISTS OPEN FIRE IN PARIS

*** begin quote ***

Yet in the end, these gun controls appear as impotent against determined attackers as do gun-free zones in the United States. These laws create an uneven playing field, where the terrorist and criminal are armed, but law abiding citizens–even hundreds of them at a time–are soft targets for lawless men with bad intentions.

*** end quote ***

It certainly seems that one lesson from Paris is that “gun bans” don’t work.

Hopefully some sanity on this topic will seep into “We, The Sheeple”.

“Gun Free Zones”, like “drug free zones”, just are pathetically stupid guarantees of “target rich environments”.

What can we do to convince the politicians and bureaucrats — and their accomplices in the media — to put their collective heads out of their <synonym for a bunch of donkeys> and end these “killing zones”.

You can’t unstrike the gong, can’t roll back the clock, and can’t change criminal behavior by wishing it away.

END GUN FREE ZONES NOW!

GUNS: Support Constitutional Carry by Gun Owners of America on Independence Day

Saturday, July 4, 2015

2015-Jul-04

*** begin quote ***

Happy Independence Day!

“GOA [has] proven itself as a uniquely effective ‘no-compromise’ national leader in the gun rights advocacy community.” — David Codrea, formerly of The Examiner

Not a GOA member yet? You can join Gun Owners of America today for a mere $20!

Gun owners should take heart because freedom is advancing!

It has been a good year for freedom.

More state legislatures are passing GOA-backed laws, enabling citizens to carry firearms concealed WITHOUT permits — laws that are known as Constitutional Carry.

More states are enacting GOA-backed laws to veto federal restrictions within their borders. The Brady Campaign even lost a case against Kansas last month, when a judge threw out a lawsuit challenging the state’s pro-gun law (from 2013) imposing felony penalties on anyone enforcing gun control. to get more information on these polls.

Finally, more and more people are converting to the pro-gun position. Polls show that the number of people who favor gun rights — and oppose gun control — is dramatically increasing.

Sure, our rights don’t depend on what the majority thinks. But it’s nice when you have the bulk of the American people on your side! Click here to get more information on these polls.

Americans are increasingly pro-gun and are mobilizing

Your involvement with Gun Owners of America is helping make a difference. GOA is educating the public and is mobilizing the grassroots to put the heat on their elected legislators.

Just yesterday, our Facebook page hit one million “likes.” Our email activist list continues to grow dramatically.

Our numbers are increasing, and that means YOUR VOICE is getting louder and louder inside the halls of Congress.

Gun Owners of America wants to thank you for your activism, because we couldn’t do what we do without your support.

No wonder that National Public Radio was able to say, “Gun Owners of America showed with one email alert that it could help flood the phone lines on Capitol Hill days before the Senate vote.” (December 26, 2013)

GOA: Saturating the media

In addition to “flooding” the Congress with grassroots activism, Gun Owners of America is helping to shape the gun rights debate around the nation.

In the two weeks following the tragic shooting in South Carolina, GOA representatives appeared in almost 1,000 different media outlets to defend 2nd Amendment rights. At some points, we were literally communicating with the American people around the clock.

Some of the more notable appearances can be listened to or viewed here:

(1) GOA Director of Communications Erich Pratt goes “mano a mano” with a British TV anchor over the subject of self-defense and gun rights.

(2) Inside the country, GOA representatives appear on CNN and an ABC NewsTalk stations to reject calls for gun control and to demonstrate how law-abiding citizens can (and have) stopped mass shootings.

(3) On both radio and in print, GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt discusses the Pope’s response to the Charleston shooting when he declared that gun makers (and by inference, gun owners) can’t be Christians.

There are a lot more media appearances that we have posted, and you can catch up with these on the GOA website, YouTube and Facebook pages.

GOA: Big wins for gun owners at the Supreme Court

Finally, Gun Owners of America is defending our gun rights in the courts. And this includes lawsuits challenging California’s waiting period and restrictive concealed carry requirements.

Not only that, while the Supreme Court’s major decision from last Friday has dominated the news, there have been several cases before the high Court that have advanced gun owners’ rights.

Gun Owners of America has been involved in all of these cases, and we are happy to report that we have enjoyed a stream of victories and are steadily reclaiming lost ground in the courts. Click here to get more information on these GOA victories at the Supreme Court.

Again, none of this is possible without you.

We know that the media is frequently dominated by “bad news.” But as you commemorate Independence Day this weekend, realize that there are a lot of good things happening that we can celebrate, as well.

I’m a member.

And remember, the real purpose of the Second Amendment is to keep the Gooferment in check.

Don’t think a few guns can make a difference?

* Think back to the Warsaw Ghetto where a handful of antiques held the SS a bay for more than a month.

* Review the Russian and American experiences in Afghanistan against “irregulars”.

* Ask yourself why the first thing Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and PolPot did was to disarm the people.

Argh!

Independence Day in a country of secret laws, diktats, and courts.  

Who’s kidding who?

Secession is required to cut the Leviathan down to size.

GUNS: Pepuls Republik of Nu Jerzee “kills” a woman with its “gun laws”

NJ WOMAN STABBED TO DEATH WAITING FOR STATE PERMISSION TO OWN GUN
by AWR HAWKINS
4 Jun 2015212

*** begin quote ***

On April 21, Carol Bowne from Berlin Township, NJ, applied for a license to own a handgun, which she wanted to protect herself from a former boyfriend against whom she had a restraining order.

On June 3—while still waiting for the state to give her permission to own a gun—Bowne’s former boyfriend, Michael Eitel, allegedly stabbed her to death in her own driveway.

According to the Courier-Post, after getting the restraining order, Bowne “installed security cameras and an alarm system to her home and began the months-long process of obtaining a handgun.” Bowne’s co-workers said, “She got a restraining order about a month ago, and right after that her car windows were broken.”

*** and ***

This tragedy is one more example of the foolishness of putting a licensing requirement on the Second Amendment. Like all gun control, it empowers those with criminal intentions while making the vulnerable more vulnerable.

*** end quote ***

Back in 2006, I wrote about the uselessness of restraining orders.

I won’t repeat myself; you can read it if you want:

https://reinkefaceslife.com/2006/05/05/rant-restraining-orders-work-well-maybe-not-in-this-case-or-not-at-all/

If the politicians and bureaucrats would pull their heads out of their <synonym for donkeys>, obeyed the Constitution, this woman might be alive today.

Argh!
