Lack Of Armaments = Enslavement

BY Herschel Smith

Bill Federer at World Net Daily:

George Mason of Virginia stated: “To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

James Madison wrote (“Letters & Writings of James Madison,” 1865, p. 406): “The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation … forms a barrier against the enterprise of ambition. … Kingdoms of Europe … are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story wrote in “Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States,” 2nd Edition, 1833, p. 125): “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered as the palladium (safeguard) of the liberties of a Republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers.”

Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Cooley wrote in “The General Principles of Constitutional Law” (2nd Ed., 1891, p. 282): “The Second Amendment … was meant to be a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers. … The people … shall have the right to keep and bear arms, and they need no permission or regulation of law for the purpose.”

Patrick Henry wrote (Elliott, ed., “The Debates in the Several State Conventions,” 1836, 1941, p. 378): “Let him candidly tell me, where and when did freedom exist when the sword and the purse were given up from the people? Unless a miracle in human affairs interposed, no nation ever retained its liberty after the loss of the sword and the purse. … The great object is, that every man be armed. … Everyone who is able may have a gun.”

Joel Barlow wrote in “Advice to the Privileged Orders in the Several States of Europe, Resulting from the Necessity and Propriety of a General Revolution in the Principle of Government” (1792, 1956, p. 46): “The foundation of everything is … that the people will form an equal representative government … that the people will be universally armed … A people that legislate for themselves ought to be in the habit of protecting themselves.”

[ … ]

Thomas Paine wrote (“Writings of Thomas Paine,” Conway, ed., 1894, p. 56) “The peaceable part of mankind will be continually overrun by the vile and abandoned while they neglect the means of self defense. The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order.”

[ … ]

Islamic Sharia law forbids non-Muslims from possessing arms, swords or weapons of any kind. Adolph Hitler acted similarly with his Edict of March 18, 1938: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subjected people to carry arms; history shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected people to carry arms have prepared their own fall.”

German Firearm Act of 1937 stated: “Firearm licenses will not be granted to Jews.”

Richard Munday reported in “The Monopoly of Power,” presented to the American Society of Criminology, 1991, the Nazi order regarding arms, SA Ober Führer of Bad Tolz: “SA (Storm Troopers), SS (para-military adjunct of the Gestapo), and Stahlhelm. … Anyone who does not belong to one of the above-named organizations and who unjustifiably keeps his weapon … must be regarded as an enemy of the national government and will be brought to account without compunction and with the utmost severity.”

Read the rest at WND.  Bill has done an excellent job with this article.  So here is a bonus question for readers.  What do Adolf Hitler, ISIS, the Turkish Muslims who perpetrated the Christian genocide in Armenia, and the American gun controllers have in common?

Eliminating D.C.’s Handgun Ban Had No Effect On Homicides

BY Herschel Smith
1 month ago

The National Interest:

The people who generally obeyed the ban were law-abiding citizens and not the criminals … drug gangs – which are frequently the shooters in D.C. homicides – obtained handguns regardless of whether the ban was in place.

I’m certain that the D.C. police and other collectivists inside the beltway are shocked.  Just SHOCKED!!

Get thee to thy fainting couch, commies!

Statists Always Turn To The Disarmament Of The Innocent And The Arming Of Their Allies

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 1 week ago

It has been a subject of much misunderstanding, one that I have tried to clear up before.  Hitler never attempted to disarm his allies or Germans whom he believed he could trust.  Hitler wasn’t anti-gun.  Hitler was anti-gun concerning those upon whom he intended to perpetrate genocide.

… the Nazi seizure of power in 1933 was consolidated by massive searches and seizures of firearms from political opponents, who were invariably described as “communists.” After five years of repression and eradication of dissidents, Hitler signed a new gun control law in 1938, which benefitted Nazi party members and entities, but denied firearm ownership to enemies of the state.

The same thing happened to the Christians in Turkey in the Armenian genocide.  True to form in South Africa, where there is the beginnings of genocide against anyone who has lighter skin color, the next step is gun confiscations, and the warnings have been issued.

South African Gunowners Association ( SAGA ) has been advised that South African Police Service ( SAPS ) in the Western Cape will be conducting an operation aimed at gunowners who have failed, for whatever reason, to timeously renew their licences in respect of specific guns.

It appears that SAPS teams will be conducting ‘raids’ on targeted individuals mostly at their residences with a view to confiscating guns and ammunition.

SAGA cannot at this stage speculate as to what SAPS intends to achieve by this action, nor what other steps may be taken by SAPS at the time of such visit.

1. If you are in possession of the old green licence, that licence is still valid in terms of an Order of the High Court – a copy of this order is available from SAGA.

2. If SAPS personnel or anyone under their command, after correctly identifying themselves, and providing some form of warrant or authorization insists on taking possession of your gun, you are advised to cooperate with them while pointing out that a green licence is valid at this date. Moreover, with respect to the validity of expired White Licences you may point out that within weeks of this date various high profile court actions are due to be heard.

SAGA legal counsel believes the so-called raids and any confiscation of guns as a result thereof is possibly breaching the Firearms Control Act and other laws.

SAGA doesn’t need to speculate as to the reason for these actions.  They intend to confiscate guns, and they intend to target peaceable and law abiding men with these confiscations.

There are a couple of very important points to be made concerning this dreadful news.  First of all, LEOs will always reflexively enforce the wishes of the ruling class.  You cannot entrust your future to the state, and even now the LEOs in South Africa are ensuring the future deaths of their own culture and people.  Second, gun registries are in fact the pretext for gun confiscation, regardless of what the Fascists claim.  As I’ve explained, we’ve even seen that from American Fascists who have explained to each other the true intent of such data and information.

The only way we can truly be safe and prevent further gun violence is to ban civilian ownership of all guns. That means everything. No pistols, no revolvers, no semiautomatic or automatic rifles. No bolt action. No breaking actions or falling blocks. Nothing. This is the only thing that we can possibly do to keep our children safe from both mass murder and common street violence.

Unfortunately, right now we can’t. The political will is there, but the institutions are not. Honestly, this is a good thing. If we passed a law tomorrow banning all firearms, we would have massive noncompliance. What we need to do is establish the regulatory and informational institutions first. This is how we do it.  The very first thing we need is national registry. We need to know where the guns are, and who has them.

This happened for those who are “subjects of the Queen” a long time ago, which is why they are ripe for takeover by the Islamists and utterly powerless to stop it, even if they did have the will.  The future for the poor people of South Africa looks bleak.

So too does the future for the poor people of Venezuela, where the communists are arming their allies.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said he will expand the number of civilians involved in armed militias, providing guns to as many as 400,000 loyalists.

The announcement came as Maduro’s opponents are gearing up for what they pledge will be the largest rally yet to press for elections and a host of other demands Wednesday.

The Bolivarian militias, currently at approximately 100,000, were created by the late Hugo Chavez to assist the armed forces in the defense of his revolution from external and domestic attacks.

Speaking to thousands of militia members dressed in beige uniforms gathered in front of the presidential palace, Maduro said that vision remains relevant as Venezuela continues to face “imperialist aggression.”

“A gun for every militiaman!” he cried.

Except not the militiamen who would overthrow him.  Collectivists know the power of armaments, and the control over them – taxation, licensing fees, data and information, approval authority over types and kinds, and ultimately authority to decide who gets to keep them – means everything to their station in life.

It goes without saying that you should husband your own possession of weapons and ammunition.  There will be no life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness without them.  There may not be happiness even with them, because men who are armed are not [yet] enslaved and must make hard decisions.  But you may be able to ensure that future generations of your family enjoy the liberty they need to flourish and thrive.

Nebraska Gun Rights Preemption Bill

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 1 week ago

US News & World Report:

A bill that would overturn most local gun ordinances that are more stringent than Nebraska state law cleared a key hurdle Wednesday despite protests from some Omaha and Lincoln area senators who raised public safety concerns.

Lawmakers gave initial approval to a gun-rights pre-emption bill 32-12, after supporters overcame a filibuster by opponents who want to preserve existing local rules.

Supporters said the bill would eliminate a confusing patchwork of local gun ordinances, particularly in Omaha and Lincoln. Critics in the Legislature argued the bill would allow gun-rights groups to sue cities which refuse to repeal their rules even if aren’t directly harmed.

“I have to imagine that some big, out-of-state group is going to try to come in and get attorneys’ fees,” said Sen. Matt Hansen of Lincoln.

Sen. Mike Hilgers of Lincoln, the bill’s lead sponsor, said the concerns about lawsuits were overblown and argued that statewide policies would stop local governments from infringing on gun rights.

“This does not expose cities to unnecessary liability,” he said. “If they follow state law, which they should, they will not be sued. And if they are sued, that means they’re not following state law.”

Cities, counties, towns and municipalities who infringe on God-given and constitutionally recognized rights should be exposed to liability and they should be sued.

As we’ve seen in our own discussions on this topic, no one can ever show that a local government attempts to loosen gun laws.  The only thing they ever do is attempt to infringe to an even greater degree than the state on gun rights.  Therefore, it makes good sense for states to do this in order to stop the collectivists and controllers who want to dictate every little detail of life within their borders.

So here is a note to these little dictators.  Your borders aren’t sovereign.  You aren’t allowed to control guns or anything else the state doesn’t allow you to control.  Why don’t you stop worrying about this and figure out how to meet your obligations on all of those unfunded liabilities you have because of those ridiculous city worker pensions you agreed to.

Nebraska should proceed apace to make this the law of the state.

Everytown Vows $25 Million To Fight National Concealed Carry

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 2 weeks ago


Preparing for life with Donald Trump as president and Republican majorities in Congress, Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group is threatening to spend more than $25 million in 2018 races.

Everytown for Gun Safety, founded and funded by the billionaire former New York City mayor, is hiring several new top staffers and turning much of its attention to state legislatures, while moving to a defensive posture in Washington as it tries to stop what’s known as “concealed carry reciprocity” from becoming law. That will include starting to score congressional votes, like the National Rifle Association does, to guide spending decisions more directly.

We knew that collectivists never give up, and neither can we.  Unfortunately, Bloomberg has been moderately successful at the state level in blue states at infringing more on gun rights.  That’s why as I’ve recommended to nice people that you can’t be nice with Everytown.  You have go to war with them.  They are at war with you and your rights, and war is interested in you whether you’re interested or not.  It remains a bright spot in my blogging history that Jennifer Mascia came into my back yard on behalf of Everytown and tried to run with the big dogs (my commenters) and got chewed up.

As for what Trump has or hasn’t done on our behalf, while I’m disappointed in the degree of control that McMaster seems to have over him and his entry into the war to topple Syria, there are bright spots in Trump’s brief history of appointments.

Jesse Panuccio, the third-highest ranking official at the Department of Justice, has argued to allow firearms sales to people under age 21 and in defense of a Florida law that prohibited doctors from asking patients if they owned guns.

Noel Francisco, Donald Trump’s nominee for solicitor general, has described the Second Amendment as “a structural protection that’s intended to protect all other rights.”

And Tom Wheeler, now a senior lawyer in the DOJ’s civil rights division, once gave a speech with the title: “Arming Teachers to Prevent Tragedies, Responding to Sandy Hook.”

Forget for a moment that Sandy Hook was a false flag.  These are good appointments (go read the entire article).  On the other hand, I hold out very little hope that national carry reciprocity or the hearing protection act will get traction (much less amending or outright undoing the NFA).  The gaggle of gargoyles and demons that inhabits the House and Senate has no interest in your rights, and even if they did, trying to get anything useful done is like trying to herd cats.

So I can only recommend that you don’t wait on national carry, and if you wanted to suppressor or SBR, go ahead and get it and file the paperwork.  If there is success on the horizon, I just don’t see it.  Perhaps I’m just being pessimistic.

Self Defense Lacking In South Africa, Leading To Atrocities

BY Herschel Smith
1 month, 4 weeks ago

David Codrea:

“They were tortured with a blow torch and knives,” a chilling Middleburg Observer report about a South African farm attack relates. “A plastic bag was stuffed down Sue’s throat and they attempted to strangle Robert with a black bag around his neck … “In any other country, such a crime would be almost unthinkable. But in South Africa, these kinds of farm attacks are happening nearly every day.”

I’ve told you guys before (see comments) and if you ever had an predilections towards trying to find common ground with the abusers and controllers, you’d better listen to me again.

Mankind is evil.  It’s called federal headship, and it happened in the garden with Adam as the father of all mankind.  God’s saving grace can redeem individual men, and it can change a society by “common grace.”  It has before in America under far different circumstances.  But with the anemia of the church and so-called Christians who have abdicated all responsibility for their culture, there are consequences and they aren’t good.  There is an ebb and flow to this sort of thing until we learn that lesson again … and again … and again.

When I initially read this it reminded me of the atrocities perpetrated by AQ in Iraq when I covered the war there.  They would take drills and drill into the heads of live humans.  Don’t think it can’t happen in South Africa, and don’t think it can’t happen here, and happen to you or your family if you don’t gun up.

Prepare to defend yourself.  A lack of will is even worse than having no weapons, because you may be able to find the weapons if it’s not too late.  But don’t count on it.

Your Tax Dollars At Work: Producing Anti-Gun Myths And Propaganda

BY Herschel Smith
2 months, 1 week ago

There’s nothing quite like having to fund your enemies, is there?  Listen to U.S. District Court Judge Walter H. Rice.

I think open carry (and concealed-carry) laws, with all due deference to the Second Amendment, which I support…are dangerous to any community because of the epidemic of mental health issues throughout this country,” he said. “Putting guns in the hands of mentally incompetent people is a recipe for disaster.”

Lies.  And the only mentally incompetent person around here is you, judge Rice.  You moron.

Next up is a local politician – the top cop in Pelham – and I do refer to him as a politician, speaking out against constitutional carry in Alabama.

Palmer said the passage of the bill would require him to sit down and reevaluate the way Pelham Police Department conducts traffic stops.

“It puts the public and police officers at risk,” Palmer said.  “I believe in the second amendment for law abiding citizens.  I’m not trying to take away anybody’s rights.  I’m just trying to keep handguns out of the possession of criminals.”

Oh horse shit.  You know better than that.  The current system does absolutely nothing to ensure what you said, and I just think you’re whining about the loss of revenue.

So go ahead and sit down (or stand up) and have that conversation with your cops.  You shouldn’t be worrying over whether someone has a concealed handgun permit during stops or not.  That’s a false indication of your safety.

I’m tired of spending my hard-earned dollars so that government employees can concoct lies.

Gun Law Effectiveness As A Measure Of Constitutionality?

BY Herschel Smith
2 months, 1 week ago

David Codrea:

Besides which, since when is “effectiveness” a measure of Constitutionality? Where is the authority to do this? That’s a question a group of us have been asking for years, and for which we have never received acknowledgement from Exile proponents, let alone a responsive answer. Perhaps it’s time to resurrect and heed the objections and warnings of the Project Exile Condemnation Coalition.

Even without resorting to the demonstrable truism that anyone who can’t be trusted with a gun can’t be trusted without a custodian, there is a variety of ways people who pose no danger to themselves or others are denied the right to keep and bear arms – and often without even the simulated motions of “due process.” That includes gun owners in hopelessly “blue states,” in which all doors for peaceable redress of grievances have been slammed shut by overwhelmingly “anti-gun” legislatures and judges.

I agree with David concerning the issue of custodianship and gun ownership, and I must say that all of this federal involvement in local affairs is off-putting to say the least.

Jeff Sessions is better than some AGs we could get, but frankly, I couldn’t care less about enforcement of federal gun laws, any more than I care about the so-called “war on drugs,” both of which seem like failures to me as well as unconstitutional.

One reason I was happy to see Sessions appointed AG had to do with what I thought would be his prosecution of high level politicians and power brokers associated with, bound up in, implicated in, and leading the wicked and obscene pedogate empire that has taken Washington and other international centers of power.

When is Sessions going to start this prosecution?  It’s been long enough.  I’ve run out of patience.  Drop your focus off of inner city black-on-black crime (which you can do nothing about short of removing the incentive, i.e., welfare and SNAP as payment for out-of-wedlock babies) and focus on the extortionist racket that is CP.  Otherwise, you’ll be just another worthless AG I wish I had never known.

Petraeus And McChrystal Continue To Dishonor Veterans With Gun Control

BY Herschel Smith
2 months, 1 week ago

USA Today:

A coalition of retired admirals and generals, including former CIA director and retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, are protesting “irresponsible and dangerous” legislation they say would put mentally ill veterans in harm’s way by giving them easy access to firearms.

The Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act would prevent the Department of Veterans Affairs from reporting veterans’ records to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System after they’ve been deemed incapable of managing their financial affairs because of a disabling mental disorder. The bill would prohibit the VA from considering such veterans “mentally defective” without a magistrate or judicial authority ruling that the beneficiary is a danger to himself or herself or others.

In a Tuesday letter, members of the Veterans Coalition for Common Sense urged House and Senate leaders to oppose the bill. The House is expected to take it up on Thursday.

“The bill you are debating comes at a time when an average of 20 veterans commit suicide each day, two-thirds of whom do so by using a firearm. We know that non-deployed veterans are at a 61 percent higher risk of suicide compared to the American civilian population, and deployed veterans are at a 41 percent higher risk,” they wrote. “When vulnerable veterans have access to firearms, they can do harm not only to themselves but also to family members and loved ones. The impact of these tragedies is felt in communities across our nation.”

Petraeus, who is an adulterer, and McChrystal who is a murderer of the men at Ganjgal, along with losers Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré, Gen. Peter W. Chiarelli and others, want to report veterans to the NICS.  To link this up to causation, they use having someone else do finances as a trigger.  Just like the elderly who want someone to assist with finances, veterans cannot have their mother or wife assist with finances while they attend college classes for fear of loss of gun ownership rights.

Forget repairing the dysfunctional Veterans Administration, giving better health care, or any one of a myriad of things that would seriously help veterans.  No, take their guns away from them.  This is a disgusting and un-American display of total abandonment for the purpose of driving a political agenda.  This gun control agenda has been pressed by both Petraeus and McChrystal in form, fit and function completely different than the context here with veterans.  Veterans are being used by McChrystal and this group.  So much for their love of country or men with whom they served.

It’s sad, and if you’re a veteran, you need to (a) dissociate yourself from such terrible men, and (b) be very careful what you say to the VA or anyone else for that matter.  The very men who the country should be honoring are on the chopping block for loss of rights.


David Petraeus And Stanley McChrystal Lead The Charge On Gun Control

Is The Supreme Court’s Heller Binding In New York?

BY Herschel Smith
2 months, 1 week ago

David Codrea:

“New York Attorney General files response in Taser case, and no, it’s not a joke,” attorney Stephen Stamboulieh notes in response to the state’s position in the matter of Avitabile v. Cuomo. “I guess before I argue these motions on March 24, 2017, I have to figure out if the Supreme Court’s Heller opinion is binding law in New York. “

I have a better question.  Is God’s opinion relevant in New York?  If you say yes, then you must admit that His requirement to defend your life because it’s made in His image means that the very weapons the New York AG thinks aren’t covered by Heller are the least of the things you should be able to own.  If you say no, well then, the future doesn’t look bright for you, if you know what I mean.  Your body doesn’t just cool to ambient temperature when you die, and that’s the end.  There’s something more.  Much more.  In fact, this life is but a vapor, but what we do and how we believe matters above all else.  Forget Heller.  What about the sovereign of the universe?

Hey, take a look at the picture.  I love it how these controllers always try to line up the blue costumed hacks behind them, as if their opinion means anything.  And look at the sad, unlikable, bitchy and asshole faces in that gaggle.  Would you want to be around them for any reason under the sun?  Say one of the boys asked you to drop by for a pit fire, a bit of Maker’s Mark and some cigars with them.  Would you even want to go?  It would be like spending quality time with that creepy, weird guy who shouts a lot, looks at you strange, smells bad and pushes the buggy with all his stuff in it.  At least, that’s how I think of it.

Don’t be like them, boys and girls.  Don’t be like gun controllers.  They’re a sad, unsociable lot.
