What If You Were Given An Unconstitutional Order To Confiscate Guns?

BY Herschel Smith
9 months, 3 weeks ago

Watch.  Short video.  Note well his answer.  Notions of right and wrong, what it means to be loyal and true to your oaths and vows, and rights before God, come not from the Almighty, but the supreme court, that gaggle of black robed Druids who ignore everything good and want to stay in the martini circles inside the beltway.

He’s not at all hesitant or embarrassed at his answer.

    When they experience “first hand” that there “personal lives”, there “complete personal lives” are ….less than secure.
    Many tunes will change, they can’t confiscate and Protect there’s, at the same time.

    Night Letters
    Be the Very Large Infected Splinter in there lives.

    Know your local LE. It really is, very easy.

    Think LE before you act. THINK.

    The police will swing their nightsticks on behalf of whoever pays them. “To Serve and Protect” is and always has been pure BS.

    Does that male officer think a SC ruling constitutes an amendment?

    You would think educated people would know that the “just following orders” defense was rejected by the international community in Nuremberg.

    Many will have to learn the hard way.

    i know you aren’t a fan of the 5.0 Hershel but not all of us are like this retard…as long as i’ve done this job, the more i distrust law enforcement…i already told my boss i would quit before i went door to door collecting peoples guns…and believe it or not there are a lot of officers like me out there…it’s like anything else, you just see the short bus riders on video…a lot of good guys out there trying to do what’s right…

    All police forces, without exception, are the “select militia” referred to in the following: http://missourifreepress.com/2018/08/24/why-we-cant-ignore-the-militia-clause-of-the-second-amendment/ They have only the legitimacy given them by the force they project or can project. They may follow the laws, they may do a good job of enforcing the laws, they may in fact, as a side effect, protect and serve the public. But their duty is to serve and protect the government, whether honest or corrupt. And if the government is corrupt, they are the enforcers of that corruption. For example, it was the police in numerous states who removed poll watchers from polls, in violation of state law – but they obeyed orders from their corrupt governments. Their oath to uphold the Constitution is routinely ignored, they do what they are ordered to do, constitutional, lawful, or not. And the government observes the constitution only when it is convenient to do so.

    And they run away from gunfire, whether it’s a 17-year old school shooter or some kid shooting up a shopping mall. They prefer to stay alive to enjoy pay and pension rather than put their lives at risk. They’re hired guns, they’re not defending their country, that’s up to the citizens. And who enforces the Bill of Rights?

    I hope it doesn’t hurt his feelings when the folks he visits for the purpose of stealing their guns give him the bullets first.

    He will support and defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, as long as his superiors approve.

    Good Ghod. The questioner is falling on his face. The Constitution was written in 1789. The fact the cop agrees with this timeline is worse.

  12. On December 4, 2020 at 8:43 am, Andrea Smith said:

    Order followers are the people who keep the system of slavery in place. What an asshole cop!

  13. On December 4, 2020 at 9:29 am, Bram said:

    I had this conversation with some of cops I served with in National Guard. A few were adamant that they’d refuse any gun-confiscation order. Others were mealy-mouthed like this guy.

    Make your choice and be prepared to live and die with it.

    @Pogo –

    One small correction: The Constitution was written in 1787 and sent to the states for ratification, which occurred on June 21, 1788. The federal government essentially went into business in early 1789.

    Regardless, the fact that neither the “interviewer” nor the cop got even close to the correct date is a bit…bothersome.

    Ok, Joe. Shall we give you some hypotheticals?

    Since I don’t know what state you live in and it’s laws, I will base these on the law in my state as it is now and how it has been in the past.

    1) State law allows a loaded firearm to be carried in a vehicle as long as it is in plain view or in a factory installed “GLOVE COMPARTMENT”.
    a. You pull over a man and find a loaded handgun on the passenger seat covered by a newspaper. Do you arrest him?
    b. You pull over a doctor in a large SUV. In the course of the stop you search the vehicle and find a loaded handgun in the center console between the front seats, do you arrest him?
    Before the law was changed, both of these would result in arrest with Case b actually going to the state supreme court where it was upheld since a center console is not a glove compartment.

    2) You are sent to investigate a couple suspected of growing pot in their basement. In the course of the search, you find the husband’s granddaddy’s single barrel shotgun in a back closet. Do you seize the shotgun and add a felony enhancement of using a firearm in connection with illegal drug possession? This infringement is still happening in our great nation.

    3) An 18 year old gets into a relationship with “Crazy”. She ends the relationship and files DV charges against him which his court appointed lawyer talks him into copping a plea to. So this guy now has a DV conviction. 30 years have passed and you find him in possession of a firearm in violation of state laws barring anyone with a DV conviction from owning a firearm. Do you take his firearm and arrest him?

    4) A natural disaster has stuck and the mayor sends the police force out to round up citizen owned firearms. You walk into a house while 3 of your coworkers are manhandling an elderly woman while they try to take her 22 revolver. What do you do?

    I watched a video a few years ago of an aged woman who was a holocaust survivor.
    She spoke of her terrible experiences in detail that was very moving but at the end
    of her talk she said to the audience in a voice that brooked no argument ” Whatever
    else you do, never, ever, let them take your guns”.

    The late Bob Owens had a post called “What you’ll see in the rebellion” in which he described a scenario for what would follow an attempt to confiscate arms from citizens. His old site (bob-owens.com) is now something else, but if you look for it online by title, you can find it via the Wayback Machine (but not through Google).

    Transplant that guy into late 1930s Germany and he would follow orders. Like a good little NAZI.

    Cops are like dogs. They are loyal to whoever feeds them.

    The Constitution does not feed them.

  20. On December 5, 2020 at 2:35 pm, Sisu said:

    Individual officers cannot stand alone; even the 10% (or less) who wanted the job because they see themselves as “heroes”. They all have their self interest which must come first; no different than the public at large. Very few will risk their livelihood if they can hide behind someone else’s decision. …

    Too boot they need their union (may not like that fact) to protect them. Even though the union leadership is out for themselves first (same for all unions; everyone eats the bosses eat first).

    The unions run the police departments; the politicians have the “carrot”. To keep getting more “carrots” the union must get its members to execute all but the most egregious orders from the politicians. …

    When hurricane Sandy destroyed the metro NYC area and Long Island, many LEOs weighed their self interests against public needs. Many LEOs throughout the region did not return to work for weeks. No repercussions. …

    I don’t know what will happen if a gun confiscation order were issued. But I doubt any would be issued without calling the National Guard into service as a domestic police force.

    “To serve and protect those that pay them” should be painted on the gestapowagons.

    The Constitution is for a just and moral people, it is wholly inadequate for any other.

    Amurikah 2020, clownworld shitshow has hit full retard!

    Legally, if their oath of office is a pre-employment requirement, then if they violate that oath, they are operating outside scope of employment, and forfeit all legal backing for their unconstitutional actions. They become joe average citizen/criminal. If an unconstitutional illegal order is given to them, as LE “professionals”, it is their duty to instantly identify the order as illegal, to the one issuing the illegal order, and comply with necessary specified legal guidelines to sever themselves from the conspiracy/criminal act. Any criminal, giving an illegal order will usually, immediately prove knowledge, and intent of the illegal order by invoking the “insubordination” label onto the individual calling out the illegal order.
