A very thoughtful read

01/25/2016

By Kurt Schlicter over at Townhall. Everything I read in that article made absolute sense. The only thing keeping the government from trying to do us is that they know we’ll do them back. The. Only. Thing. You know that as well as I do.

I have never, ever had anyone tell me that he had too much ammunition.  Not in a combat zone, not in a civil disaster, not even in peacetime.  Never.  Nor have I lived through a time where our governing class was so deeply corrupt, so utterly foolish, and so dangerously focused on the perpetuation of its own power that it risked bringing down everything we have built not merely in the United States but in the entire West.

That was quite the thought provoking beginning. Here’s another highlight piece for you to think about:

Right now we have a president who thinks he can ignore or modify the law unilaterally, justifying it with the baffling argument that he shouldn’t have to ask Congress because Congress will just say “No” – which I always thought was kind of the point of checks and balances.   So what happens when President Clinton, who identified you and me and the 50% of Americans who aren’t her supporters as her enemies, decides she gets to make her own laws because, well, she knows better and feels like it?  Nothing good.

But deterrence is a wonderful thing.  An armed, trained populace is not only prepared for when things go bad, but the fact that it is armed and trained makes it much less likely that things will go bad in the first place.  Last year, Americans voted for liberty by buying well over 15 million new guns.  That’s roughly 40,000 a day, every day.  That’s enough to arm three infantry divisions.

This is the only thing keeping them in check, but you know the plans it has before it leaves office. And you know damn well it wants to stay there. Marshall Law (turns out I saw somewhere that really is it) may be declared. At which time the party starts. If you wish to stay with Martial Law, that’s fine. In any case, that will be the trigger.

I need more ammo.

    Great write and post on our Right to Bear Arms as American Citizens, for it has never been more needed as a right and on time than today.

    One example: When 75% of the population of Flint Michigan is of color and the powers to be there happen to be 100% of the Democratic Party. And they decide to cripple their voters with bodily harm; knowingly with a simple thing as bad drinking water. And not single shot is heard and no one to date has been fired or held accountable, is evidence of the complete surrender of their citizen constitutional rights of Flint Michigan.

    This brings the facts into question and the powers to be willingness to impose bodily harm to the general population, whether of color or not.

    No doubt about it that a Well Armed Militia and a citizen’s Right to Bear Arms must protect themselves from this type of government.

    That was why the 2A was included.
