I posted a little rant the other day on Facebook that was deleted for no apparent reason so I'm going to post it here. If they are afraid of it, then it must be good.
Food for thought: Did you know that the NRA has 4.2 million members?
That's 1.2 million more than the armed forces, and many soldiers are also
NRA members. The GOA, Gun Owners of America
has 300,000 members, of which I am one. Many of these cross over to the
other groups as well. I am not an NRA member because I feel they are
willing to compromise with our elected officials to violate my civil
rights. (The NRA has written many of the gun control measures we see on the books today.) The GOA was instrumental in killing any 2013 legislation that
would limit my natural rights that are protected by the constitution of
these United States.
There are calls for the disarmament of
these political activist groups, but who's going to do it? Both groups
have become very vocal about their stance on illegal legislation, with
the NRA voicing it's "Stand Your Ground" message to the membership. The
GOA's "No Compromise" stance since the inception of the group has
garnered many fans in the firearms community. There's really no hope for
compromise on the issue.
In Connecticut they passed a bill to
register certain firearms and any magazine over 10 rounds. They
estimate 370,000 of those firearms are in the state. Only 50,000 people
chose registered their firearms, and even less registered standard capacity
magazines of which they have no estimates on their numbers. There are
approximately 7,000 police officers in Connecticut, of which I'm sure
many disagree with the law. Are you beginning to see the futility of
these actions? Lets say that of those 320,000 unregistered guns, many
people own 3 or 4 of those weapons a piece. That means that 7,000 armed
people have the duty to arrest and prosecute 100,000 or so armed people
who refuse to comply. Maybe the 230,000 strong DHS will do it! No, only
between half and a quarter of them are agents, the rest are support and
So the real question is, which of you
anti-gun freedom haters is willing to come to each of our houses and
take our guns away? What will you do if I say no? Will you use your
hired guns to kill me? If that's what you're all about, you're not
really anti-gun, you're anti freedom. Using the guns you supposedly oppose to proliferate your
hatred of an inanimate object that is incapable of evil!
who's really the gun nut? The guy that has a few guns that have never
and will never be used in a crime, or the supposed anti-gun advocacy
that wishes to use guns to force people to adopt their agenda?
Guns are a fact of life in America, you can choose to accept it and go
on, or you can waste time, resources and money on a losing battle. Pass
your illegal laws if you so choose, when you turn good citizens, vets
and longtime outdoors men and women into criminals overnight with your
laws, be ready for them to start acting like criminals.
Better yet, Repeal the 2nd Amendment. At that point I will have no excuse for not acting.
