– Rahm Emanuel, Mayor of Chicago, former Chief-of-Staff to the President (quoted in the blog title)
One of the most important yet overlooked factors that will occur in the aftermath of a massive terrorist attack on the United States is that such an attack would spark martial law on a national basis. Several national security experts were contacted who have no doubt that martial law will be declared. This declaration would include not only forced curfews but mandatory confiscation of citizen owned firearms.
The very same scenario would be implemented in the event of a devastating national disaster, such as a rare 1000-year volcano, a deadly tsunami that would decimate either the east or west coasts, or a direct hit by an asteroid.
Since the days of the Reagan administration, government has had a blueprint for continuing to operate in secret underground bunkers that have been built all across the United States. It is called simply “Continuity of Government” that establishes specific, detailed protocols for addressing the threat posed to the entire U.S. government. While some of these protocols are prudent and necessary, the section that would implement martial law is particularly troublesome. (in part from Examiner.com)
The Administration (and their socialist minions) use every criminal shooting to continue to beat the drum for civilian disarmament – even if the firearms chosen had nothing to do with the crime. Every oil spill, however slight, is an ecological disaster. Every attempt to increase private business growth is viewed as a product of the evil 1%. Every attempt to privatize (translation – let the people decide instead of the government) pretty much anything is de facto evil, because it takes power and control away from the all-powerful, and knowledgeable
The gun control movement began in this country as a means of keeping firearms away from freed slaves (in Kentucky, in 1809) and the great unwashed (in New York City 1911). And the same forces responsible continue to push for civilian disarmament, especially of the poor. (Cheap guns are dangerous and only used in crime).
How racist is gun control?
Now that the gun rights folks have achieved CCW statutes in most States, even in Illinois, their only response is the bigger picture.
Foment nationwide discord and just wait for the next big terrorist attack. Then institute martial law and disarm the populous.
I’m sure Al Qaeda and company are just waiting so they can attack a second time. From Saudi Arabia.
