“Never trust a government that doesn’t trust its own citizens with guns.”– Benjamin Franklin
After the president (with help from his fraternizers in the deceptive state-run media) somehow won his re-election campaign, I thought it was important to note the first thing Obama and his administration did was turn its attention to the United Nations gun treaty talks.
Hmm, I wonder … If he really had the support of the American people, why is he so busy trying to disarm those who supposedly love him so much?
And all the while, Obama and his administration are busy trying to disarm the American people by conjuring up criminals guilty of some sort of gun crimes as an excuse for new gun legislation.
Well, then, let me help: This administration need not look any further than within its own ranks.
And this, friends, is the very reason we are an armed people.
Fast and Furious
As you know, Attorney General Eric Holder is guilty of putting thousands of assault rifles (AK-47s) into the hands of Mexican drug lords in an attempt to blame the American people for the crimes administration officials are guilty of contriving and committing. As a result, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed, along with hundreds of Mexican civilians, including teens at a birthday party and a Mexican beauty queen.
The state-run media conveniently pulled a media blackout on Fast and Furious, and some Americans gave them a pass and have “forgotten” the atrocities committed upon them by their own government, therefore strengthening tyranny so it might assault the people again on a later date.
The “later date” occurred in Benghazi, when Ambassador Chris Stevens, two Navy SEALs, and another U.S. citizen were killed on Sept. 11, 2012.
The Blaze reported:
The details of the September 11 attack that killed four Americans at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi are still murky, and there is certainly more to be known.
Former CIA officer Clare Lopez argues that the key issue is the relationship of the U.S. government, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya with al-Qaida.
‘That relationship, Lopez argues, could be connected to the rise of Islamic brigades in Syria, who recently created a “Front to Liberate Syria” to wage jihad against the Syrian regime and turn the country into an Islamic state.’
The Business Insider stated:
In 2011 the U.S. sold $33.4 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia and $1.7 billion to Qatar as sales tripled to a record high and accounted for nearly 78 percent of all global arms sales.
‘The opposition groups that are receiving most of the lethal aid are exactly the ones we don’t want to have it,’ one American official familiar with the situation told the New York Times.
So, America, was Ambassador Stevens gun-running to extreme jihadists? Was Eric Holder responsible for putting guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels? You decide.
Long-time gun grab attempt
Holder has been contriving a gun grab for years. For those who didn’t know, it recently came to light that Holder encouraged the media to “brainwash” the youth about how bad guns are when he was a part of Bill Clinton’s anti-gun administration.
What is interesting here is that the young, through Hollywood and video games, are conveniently taught a “thug” mentality and how to commit crimes. In the meantime, corrupt politicians await to trample the Constitution and legislate new policies to disarm the American population, leaving them defenseless when the crimes are committed.
Just look at Sandy Hook, Aurora, Columbine, etc.
Thomas Jefferson stated that the whole purpose of government is to “ensure your rights,” not to take them away.
What this administration is attempting to do is exactly what Hitler, Stalin, Mao, or any other dictator has done. They blame the weapon rather than the person committing the crimes and all the while subtly encourage criminal activity.
Friends, this is not about guns; it is about control. And this issue is not to be overlooked because gun rights stand between a free country and an enslaved, possibly an exterminated, people.
The Second Amendment:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a FREE State, the Right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed (violated).” (emphasis added)
According to Federal Statute Title 10, Chapter 13, Section 311 (a), all males between the ages of 17 and 45 who are either citizens of the United States or have declared their intent to become citizens are members of the “unorganized” or reserve militia.
It is time for America to get out of the debate because there is no debate.
We have rights given unto us by our Creator. Period.
President George Washington, when arming the people of the United States of America, said:
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.
We would do well to heed President Washington’s warning, since over 56 million people in the 20th century were exterminated by their own governments under the guise of gun control.
