I was never much of a conspiracy buff. Those who believe there is a centralized power such as the Bilderbergs, controlling the world or secretly planning a one-world government, I thought to be kooks.
I’ve always concluded that people of similar beliefs just think the same, thus come up with the same ideas independent of one another, but just appear contrived because the outcome of those ideas were analogous. I didn’t buy the notion of a bunch of bureaucrats sitting in some dimly lit antechamber plotting away, “Now your assignment is to call the senator and convince him to propose something and you call that Governor and insist he proposes something else.”
Well, I’ve begun to rethink my position and may be completely wrong but it sure seems like it could be happening just that way.
The feds know and have tried to put forth anti-gun legislation in both the House and Senate and gotten nowhere. To any progressive, this is unacceptable. It however, will not deter the Marxists from attempting to control and eventually take our guns. There is always a back door, either through regulation or other means.
There’ve been many articles written about various departments of the federal government buying up billions of rounds of ammunition. Heck, I’ve published a few myself.
The latest is the 1.6 billion-ammunition purchase by Homeland Security over the next 4 to 5 years. The feds call it “Strategic Sourcing Contracts” and it is said to get them a better price, which I’m sure it does. Odd that the purchasing contract directly coincides with Obama’s second term of four years. I’m just saying.
Anyway, Homeland Security uses about 15 million rounds of ammo every year. Let’s do some quick math. 1.6 billion divided by 15 million equals a little more than 106. So Homeland wants to buy 106 years worth of ammo? That sounds reasonable.
Now, I’m a gun owner. I don’t know about you but I’m finding it increasingly difficult to purchase ammunition. Going to any local gun shop is a joke. Their shelves look like Mother Hubbard’s cupboard. Online isn’t much better. Everything is out of stock. How odd.
Companies that produce ammunition must follow a pecking order of customers. Guess who is the head pecker, as it were? You got it; the federal government. What a great way to usurp gun control legislation. With the feds buying up all the ammo a lot of good your gun will be without it. Voilà; instant gun, or ammo control.
States across the country have been testing the waters by passing numerous gun bans. The latest is the proposal in Colorado to ban high-capacity magazines. Citizens of the state are just figuring out that due to the wording of the bill, the run-of-the-mill pump action shotgun would be deemed illegal
Then there is Democrat Illinois representative, Luis Gutierrez. He is changing things up a bit. Instead of going after those scary and expensive “assault weapons”, he is proposing a ban on the production of inexpensive lower quality handguns, known to some as “Saturday night specials”. Now I haven’t seen the bill yet, but I can bet it is aimed directly at less expensive handguns, the kind that someone on a budget might only be able to afford; someone who doesn’t have $800-$1000 to spend for personal protection. I guess they’ll just have to call 911 and wait.
It’s becoming apparent that one way or the other, the full spectrum of weapons will be covered. That’s the hardware portion of gun control. The software ban is in the conditioning of the population, or the collective.
We are hearing stories virtually every day of one child after another being suspended or somehow reprimanded for the most ridiculously innocent things, from eating a Pop Tart into the shape of an “L” and pretending it’s a gun, or a picture of a gun or a cut up piece of paper that vaguely resembles one.
From prekindergarten through college our children are being conditioned to have a completely illogical fear of guns. They are being taught that guns can’t protect or defend; they can only do harm.
Children and adults alike are being conditioned and trained into believing it is wrong to fight back. We must cower and wait for the “First Responders” to come save us. Young women are being told that it is better to be raped than protect themselves with a gun.
The brave high schooler that wrestled a gun away from another student gets suspended when he should receive a medal. See, he didn’t wait for “Capt. Planet”, the first responder to save the day. I was going to say Capt. America but that would be jingoistic. That young man took it upon himself and that just won’t do. I bet he’ll think twice before rescuing his fellow man and next time leave it to the professionals the way it is intended in the collective.
Maybe that’s what Obama meant when in 2008 he said, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Could it be that’s what Homeland needs those 1.6 billion rounds for?
We are being assimilated into the progressive’s idea of a peaceful utopia. I for one will not succumb because I know it can’t be done. This attempt, if allowed to continue, like every other time before it, will end badly.
