The reason YOU have a country is because you had the ability to defend yourself. The only reason you STILL have a country is because of that same fact.
Law abiding citizens are the only ones disarmed when the govenment disarms people. A criminal will use anything to kill. Explosives, cars, whatever.
The only guarantee that you have is your weapon when the government decides to become a dictatorship.
The war is ON YOU. The wager? The government.
Beware, when they take them away.
This is why it’s in the Constitution. IT’s the only buffer between you and them. The criminal is always going to get a weapon. But if there are no law abiding citizens that have weapons, who would be able to defend you in a split second. Cops are clean up agents. They are never there when the criminal attacks. That is a given. What idiot would open fire if they are not suicidal. Most CRIMINALS are not SUICIDAL. They are criminals for a reason.
This government is trying to become a dictatorship. Don’t let them. Once they remove the weapons, then freedom of speech and assembly is gone.
Act Immediately to Block ATF Long Gun Sales Reporting!
If you’re one of the nearly 71 million Americans who live in the four southwest border states, some of your gun purchases could soon be reported to the federal government. And whether you live in one of those states or elsewhere, your help is needed now to stop the federal government’s plan to register Americans’ gun purchases.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is demanding the authority to require all of the 8,500 firearm dealers in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas to report all sales of two or more semiautomatic rifles within five consecutive business days, if the rifles are larger than .22 caliber and use detachable magazines. For example, a dealer would have to tell the government every time a deer hunter in Sacramento or Amarillo finds a good deal on a pair of semi-auto .30-06s like the popular Remington 7400.
The ATF has no legal authority to demand these reports, and the flood of new paperwork will waste scarce law enforcement resources that should be spent on legitimate investigations.
Unfortunately, there are only a few days left to comment on this proposal. Comments will be accepted until Monday, February 14. Every concerned gun owner’s voice should be heard on this critically important issue.
