Rev. Paul recently commented on a blog post of mine suggesting stocking up on ammunition via cash means was an appropriate thing to do. This in response to the pending approval by the U.S. Senate of the U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has content related to signatory countries internal control of small arms.
Kinda a slap in the face of The Bill of Rights and our sovereignty.
And the good Rev. is a clear thinking individual and good friend who normally doesn’t go off ‘half-cocked’ in such matters. I don’t see him hunkered down up there in the Frozen North, surrounded by out of date mil-surp equipment and Gadsden flags. He is a man of God and believes in the Rule of Law.
And, even though our courts have held Our Constitution is Supreme over any treaties which we join, there seems to be much consternation and gnashing of teeth over this one.
I remember prepping somewhat for Y2K, but increasing my arm and ammunition supply, and ‘prepping’ with those I loved. Just in case.
Is this kind of thinking out-of-bounds, or good, even if nothing untoward occurs? (I did use most of my Y2K ammo subsequently, for practice. Kinda wish I had it, now)
What do you guys think?
