In Jennifer’s Head recently wrote about it having been the fifth anniversary of her first gun purchase! Congratulations!
One of the commenters brought up the issue of private versus licensed dealer sales. And that got me to thinking.
Back when I had a gun safe (with a small
arsenal collection, therein) I kept my licensed dealer guns in one part of the safe, and my W.O.P. guns in a separate part. (In politically-incorrect slang a wop was an illegal alien – it stood for With Out Papers!) The firearms I purchased legally, but privately.
Now that this has become an issue, yet again (the whole fictitious gun show loophole) and as Senator Feinstein’s
Further Remove Your Natural Rights Assault Weapon Ban bill includes a measure requiring documentation of private, personal sales, I thought it appropriate to mention.
If indeed legislation is passed banning private, undocumented transfer of firearms, and all become ‘registered’, and ‘they’ come for them, do we really think ‘they’ will just take those in the register? Or will they use metal detectors to look for ‘illegal’ guns secreted in the walls or buried in the yard? Or detain individuals until they give up their stash? (See the War on Drugs and Prohibition for historical context.)
Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun – Mao Tse Tung
‘They’ (many local governments) now require you to present ID to vote, have a social security number, file your taxes, maintain your home and yard to an arbitrary standard, put your kids in school, have them vaccinated, not have church meetings in your home-if not so zoned, not sell unpasteurized milk-without a license, separate your recyclables, have your auto emissions tested for license, get a permit to carry your gun, get a safe to secure it unloaded in your own home. Ad infinitum, ad nauseum
And most of these rules, if disobeyed, will eventually result in a confrontation with armed government authorities. Government is force.
Of course, in the coming socialist utopia, that would never happen. Or we’d never read about it in the socialist-utopia controlled media, if it did.
