Whistling Past The Graveyard

Whistling_PastTheGraveyard_300x295That’s what I’ve been doing.  I’ve seen a number of blog posts over the past week or so exclaiming ‘defacto’ firearms registration has been occurring in The United States for some time now.*  This, in spite of numerous federal laws expressly prohibiting such actions.

Quelle surprise.  Perhaps this post should have been yet another “I’m Shocked” post?

But, this meme won’t go away.  More and more bloggers are picking up the registration story as a rallying cry.

But, the big question is what happens NEXT?

Do we, the injured legally-gun-owning-populous, take action?  File lawsuits?  Run to the gun-friendly press? Write to our gun-friendly congressman?  Foment insurrection?  Or just choose to break the law piecemeal, citizen by citizen, hoping ‘they’ will take no action against us?

In effect, whistling past the graveyard?

No need to answer me here.  But you might consider what actions, if any, you will take when the police (or the military) come knock-knock-knockin’ at your door.  To acquire your legally-owned property.  By force.

Or NOT knocking.

  1. Given the general attitude of the local PD, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to come home from work some day & find the front door smashed in, and my firearms & ammo gone. Not saying it’s gonna happen, mind you, but just that it wouldn’t surprise me.

  2. I know the action I will take. I drew a line in the sand and the local gun haters went nuts.

    “Common Sense” and “Reasonable” are code words the gun haters that mean they want to win on their terms. Well, too bad. I’m not going to argue with a bunch of gun hating idiots anymore. Here is my line in the sand. I will not register any gun I own. I will not turn in any gun I own. I will not be a sheep lead to a boxcar ride. (Look it up, history repeats). If you want my guns, come get them. I’m tired and don”t really give a shit anymore. I would much rather die in the middle of my street, shot by a government thug, than to stand next to a open pit and be shot in the back of the head by a government thug.

  3. While I don’t disagree with Robert Fowler, I have always advocated the path of avoiding the knock on the door rather than dying heroically when it comes. Which is why I hope all long-time shooters made sure that at least their basic, favorite weapons were off-paper years and years ago. If they haven’t, I contend they haven’t been paying attention.
