What Happens When You Are Disarmed By The Authorities?

BY Herschel Smith

Via WRSA.  Bad things.  That’s what.

Before the 1945 Soviet occupation of Romania, the people had the right to own guns. I remember my father telling me his dad owned a double barreled shotgun he used to hunt rabbits with as well as a Luger picked from the retreating German troops (German soldiers were getting rid of all their military equipment by simply throwing it out of the troop transport trains).

When the communists took power in 1949 following falsified elections, the first law they enacted was total gun  confiscation (for the greater good of course).Then after they made sure the population was disarmed they started the arrests, imprisonments, reeducation camps and killings.  So practically since 1949 it was illegal to own any firearms in communist Romania.

Then there is this very important observation.  Listen carefully dear men.

After so many years of restrictions and servitude for over two generations, the perception of the Romanian population about gun rights changed in worse; I must admit when I first came to the US I too was surprised to see how owning guns is something normal and affordable and I too believed guns in the hands of untrained people can be dangerous (and keep in mind I served 2 years in the military so I was familiar with firearms).

After so many years of war and occupation the overwhelming majority of the people were sick and tired of the war so they believed what the propaganda of the new regime was telling them. They were lied that the government will protect them, that guns must be surrendered for their own safety, that since the war is over there is no need for guns anymore.

I’ve made the same observation before, albeit thankfully without first hand knowledge.

Every single one of the genocides in the twentieth century – every … single … one – from Hitler to Stalin to Pol Pot to Idi Amin to the Turkish Ottoman Muslim extermination of the Armenian Christians, was preceded by gun confiscations.

Nothing good ever comes from surrendering your firearms.  The founders knew that and gave us the 2nd amendment – if we can keep it.  And again, make careful note that reeducation and propagandizing is all part of the larger strategy for subduing the American culture to the wishes of the controllers.

    If they come to disarm you. Kill as many as you can until you die. If enough people fight like that this crap will end on the same week it starts. Die on your knees in a sick game of “Simon Says” or make him die on his. There is no third way.

    The biggest proponents for civillian ownership of guns are people who escaped from tyrannical regimes and saw the results of disarmament.

    The most vehemently anti-commie person I ever conversed with was a Hungarian man who just happened to be my wife’s uncle. He was exiled to Siberia by the commies and survived only because he was a doctor and they needed him. He escaped in 1956 and practiced medicine in the Connecticut area for over 40yrs. The communists and anarchists hate us and want to kill us, no question about that. They will not be able to do this unless we are disarmed. They will open up a can of whup-ass they can’t possibly imagine when they try to do this. Which, of course, they will attempt.

    Those who wish to ban private ownership of firearms are attacking not only guns themselves, but those who would own and bear them. The attack on manhood itself is of a piece with other gun-control efforts by the Cultural Marxists of the deep-state.

    This strategy has been employed in the nation formerly known as Great Britain, to great effect for the statists. Now that guns are highly-regulated in the U.K., the authorities are moving to ban other weapons, including knives. There is – no lie – a proposal to require that all personally-owned knives in the U.K. be rounded-off, like children’s plastic wear in an elementary school somewhere. It is already illegal to use force to protect one’s self in Britain, even inside one’s own home!

    The strategy is simple. Ban guns, but also ban manhood, i.e., traditional masculinity of the kind that once produced Orwell’s “rough men” who stood guard over civilization.

    If the man can be turned into a feminized soy-boy afraid to even pick up a gun and utterly ignorant of how firearms work, then even if that “male” runs across a firearm by happenstance, he won’t have the knowledge, skill or resolve to use it.

    The control of guns is ultimately about the control of men as well.

    From a purely Tactical perspective, irregardless if you intend to Fight them at your Door, Cache some Arms and Ammo, (off your property) so if your Home is Raided while you are Away, you have Back Ups.

    It takes a special kind of hatred of your fellow man to advocate for rendering him defenseless. What kind of sick freaks are these? Is history simply ignored? Like they will somehow be better dictators that the last one?

    Those who want your arms are planning on keeping theirs. Simple as that. To willingly disarm is to leave the field and forfeit the fight. The only “Authority” is God Almighty and He and history are on our side. The ferocity of righteousness will smite the minions of Satan, I just know it.

    Drudge says that 44% of Americans believe civil war is imminent (my word.) I am part of that forty-four percent.

    Re: “Drudge says that 44% of Americans believe civil war is imminent (my word.) I am part of that forty-four percent.”

    It is a measure of just how much things have deteriorated in this, the republic formerly known as the United States of America, when a sitting Congressman – Representative Peter King (R-NY) – speaks of the possibility of civil war in the open and without regard for whether the microphones are turned on or not.

    No sane man wishes for such an outcome, but whoever said the opposition were anything like sane?
