First, disarm the people.

In what looked like one of those human viruses that occasionally make the rounds warning of a deadly computer bug that will wipe your hard drive and eat your RAM like sugar wafers, I found a warning today that sounded too ridiculous to be true.

It is.  Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s not true.   HR 45, The Blair Holt Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 has been introduced.  It includes provisions that require licensing of any firearm that can be fed by a detachable feeding system (magazine,) fingerprinting of every purchaser, and the requirement to notify the Attorney General of your new address within 60 days of moving… just like a child molester.  You also agree to the automatic release of any mental health records, give the state Attorney General the right to demand a physical examination or mental health evaluation at the leisure of the government, and a certification by the applicant that they will keep the weapon(s) out of the possession of those under 18.

I guess that means no shooting with my 14 year old.  “Shooting?  Sorry, son, not until you’re 18.”

I wonder what the Army is going to do with the 17 year olds who join with parental consent.  (Actually, the government is exempt from the provisions of the entire bill.  I know.  I read it.)

Goodbye, Second Amendment; hello, first step to disarming Joe and Jill Sixpack. That’s okay… we’re in good company, Joe. Nothing at all to be concerned about.

“Any Jews still found in possession of weapons without valid licenses are threatened with the severest punishment.” – Berlin Police President, Count Wolf Heinrich von Helldorf, quoted in the New York Times, November 8, 1938.

Well hide me in your attic and call me Ann… I’m taking bets on what’s first after this; freedom of assembly or freedom of speech?

Freedom of association?



Liberty; it’s more than just freedom.

  1. And a few others:

    “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.” Adolf Hitler

    “All military type firearms are to be handed in immediately…The SS, SA and Stahlhelm give every responsible opportunity of campaigning with them. Therefore anyone who does not belong to one of the above-named organizations and who unjustifiably nevertheless keeps his weapon…must be regarded as an enemy of the national government.” — SA Oberfuhrer of Bad Tolz, March, 1933.

    “Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA — ordinary citizens don’t need guns, as their having guns doesn’t serve the state.” – Heinrich Himmler.

    “Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” -—Sarah Brady

  2. Good post Andy!! I hate to always speak of gloom and doom but mark my IS coming…you haven’t seen anything yet. Glenn Beck knows exactly what we are in for so everyone should listen up. A few people are beginning to comprehend even tho it is hard to digest but there are still many out there that have their heads completely in the sand and refuse to hear anything negative. Well I wish I didn’t have to think about it but I have to because I am a realist.
    As for Mr. Waxman’s comment….he better take heed because America is NOT going down without a fight.

  3. As much as I support the 2nd amendment, I’d like to hear suggestions on how to stop a mentally unstable person from going into VA Tech and going on a shooting spree. Perhaps someone else can explain how an 11 year old got a gun to shoot his dad’s girlfriend.. Perhaps why my mayor has to sue governors of other states that don’t enforce the minimal laws that are on the books.
    I’m waiting.

  4. Looks to me like the democrats are afraid of Bubba militia’s, and what these types of militias spell out for their politics. The 2nd amendment covers it nicely. Socialism, redistribution of weath, nationalizing banks ond/or healthcare, and the idea of spending ourselves out of debt, is ridiculous. Looks like the old adage is proving itself true…”history repeats itself,” and not always in a good way.

  5. Shannon…. ”history repeats itself,” and not always in a good way. You are all so right.
