Massad Ayoob: “Give The Cops All Your Guns”

BY Herschel Smith
2 years, 8 months ago

Massad Ayoob:

For April 2019, the question was what to do if the police showed up at your home with a warrant authorizing them to seize your firearms.  You can find it here.

Spoiler alert: their unanimous advice is “Don’t resist.  Allow them to take the weapons. Sort it out later in court.”

So at the risk of being too simplistic, this isn’t really a viable long term strategy because red flag laws are subject to the whims of the court, and the color of your eyes may disqualify you from owning firearms.  Massad Ayoob still believes in the “American Justice System.”  I believe in that too, just without the word justice.

Wirecutter saw this one too, and titles it And to think I used to like this guy.  Eh … I never really liked him.  I never saw why folks thought he was so special.

    Big topic locally as well, and the general feeling is – if they’re at your door it’s too late. You had better decide what you’ll do with your property well ahead of that event.

    At the 5am knock-knock-slam, you hand over what you have – with a smile and ask for a receipt. Maybe pics of your property as it leaves. Depending on your locale they shouldn’t know how many they are asking for. Don’t make it easy and don’t volunteer anything.

    Your mileage – and liberty – may vary when they are knocking on your neighbors door. Yet another decision you’d better think out before it happens…

    “Red Flag Laws” are quite simply GUN CONTROL and confiscation under another name. Such laws are blatantly unconstitutional. Once you
    have been served with such an order, IF YOU SURVIVE, the chances of
    actually having your property returned are MINISCULE and the fight to have them returned will be LONG, ARDOUS and EXPENSIVE. In short
    it is just another “The Process Is The Punishment” scenario where if you lose in court YOU LOSE and if you win….YOU STILL LOSE!. Assuming of course you survived the trigger happy raid in the first place. The ONLY rational response free people should have to “red flag laws” is to KILL
    the people who wrote and passed the laws, the judges who issue the orders to implement them and the badgemonkeys who are the “tip of the spear”. Till that happens expect these abominations to continue and expand exponentially until the commies in power achieve the UNSTATED GOAL of these “laws”. OUR DISARMAMENT.

    Of course Mas thinks that way. He was a coproach for a long time.

    If they come give them some shitty gun. Note who they are then at some point soon thereafter the actors all need to have their houses accidentally burned down or heads explode from an accidental high velocity hunting rifle malfunction at 600m with quality optics. Make no mistake, if they come it’s the endgame so make a plan.

    Hey! I know!

    I’ll bet this is that point where the “good guy” cops, you know, the “Vast Majority”, is gonna draw the line and say, “No, boss! I ain’t doin’ it!”

    Shucksbygolly!

    What you fellers think?

    Hognose had a very good piece on this subject:
    http://weaponsman.com/?p=40293
    “A few weeks ago, we mentioned in passing something we thought everybody always knew: that civil police were, in just about every case in history, just as willing to serve a totalitarian government as the republican one that preceded it; and that incidents of cops failing to fall in line, being, in effect “oath keepers,” were individual, idiosyncratic, and rare.”

    I propose we all give such gun grabbers alot of lead, then seek out the judges and politicians and finish up with the gun grabbers. They asked for it, they should get it.

    Don’t forget to fill the system with requests against the idiots who supported these laws including politicians, judges, bureaucrats, police officers, etc. People will lose their enthusiasm real quick when it becomes apparent that the laws are only enforced against some bur “our people” are given immunity.

    “if they’re at your door it’s too late.“
    Spot On and Fact.

    And the headline by the Local or National “Goebbel-ists” will be..
    ”Domestic Terrorist”, “White Nationalist” or “Gun Nut”

    Best to have your shit sorted, NOW.

    Disperse your Weapons, and make a Targeting List. If the government tries to Seize any of your Weapons, it should be reason to retaliate AGAINST THOSE IN CHARGE, not necessarily the thugpigs sent to do their dirty work. They are as Expendable to the (((communists))) as You are.

    ALCON,

    I never cared for Ayoob. He was and is a life-long badged thug. He supports humanism while dismissing Christianity. He is one of the “only ones”.

    He and those who grovel at the alter of Ayoob, can rot for all I care.

    Massad Ayoob is a Supreme Copsucker of the Highest Order. As soon as I figured that out, I quit reading his stuff.
