President Donald J. Trump, the man who declared in his televised State of the Union Address four weeks ago that his administration is “defending the 2nd Amendment”, has now capitulated to the demands and outcries for laws to be passed that will further restrict our right to keep and bear arms. This is really no surprise to me or anyone that has been paying close attention to his actions (not his rhetoric) since he started his term as President last year. Trump has reneged on several of his campaign promises, and much of what he spoke about during the election debates and in previous years is proving to be nothing more than empty rhetoric. I predicted last summer that he will change his stance on gun rights as more of the tragedies like last week’s shooting in Parkland, Florida come to pass. I hate being right about this one but it just proves that people absolutely cannot put their blind faith in any politician or candidate running for public office.
Donald Trump has a long record of contradictory stances and has flipped his position several times throughout the years. For example in 2000, Trump who was a registered Democrat in New York at the time, wrote in his book titled “The America We Deserve”:
“I am generally opposed to gun control, but I support a ban on assault weapons and I also support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun.”
He clearly contradicts his own statement when he says he opposes gun control but then supports gun control for certain weapons in the same sentence. It reminds me of when he made this statement last April:
“Hey, I’m a nationalist and a globalist. I’m both.”
You cannot have it both ways Mr. President. Just like you cannot declare yourself a nationalist and a globalist, as both are mutually exclusive, you cannot say that you are for the 2nd Amendment and turn around and support gun control. You are either one or the other. Though his stance is not clear about an assault weapons ban as of right now, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders stated during a recent press briefing that, “We haven’t closed any doors on any front”, when asked this very question by a CBS reporter. I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I really don’t get a warm feeling when I hear that statement. Only time will tell what the administration will do and all indication shows that President Trump is more open than ever to work with Congress and members of his cabinet to “do something” to appease the emotional base that makes up the anti-gun movement.
Though President Trump openly supports arming certain teachers and staff in our schools which is a good step in the right direction, he did, however, sign a White House memorandum this week directing Attorney General Jeff Sessions to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into “machine guns”.
First off, the “bump stock” does not actually turn a semi-automatic into a “machine gun”. None of the internal parts of the rifle are modified, thus it would not fall under the federal government’s classification as a fully automatic weapon. A bump stock is an external device that utilizes the recoil of the weapon to continuously “bump” the trigger against the operator’s finger simulating full automatic fire. The same effect can be accomplished utilizing a belt loop or a rubber band. See this video here:
I will also mention that the Obama Administration legalized the purchase of bump fire stocks and Trump stated in his memo:
“Although the Obama Administration repeatedly concluded that particular bump stock type devices were lawful to purchase and possess, I sought further clarification of the law restricting fully automatic machine guns.”
It is almost as if President Trump is rebuking the Obama Administration for not banning bump fire stocks and if his suggestions to Sessions and Congress pass, Trump will have officially accomplished more to restrict our 2nd Amendment than Obama ever did during his 8 year term. Folks, this is going to set a dangerous precedent. The Executive Branch has no constitutional authority to enact laws and regulations without congress. A lot of people including a lot of misguided gun owners think that this will just end with bump stocks. They think that Trump is making a deal by throwing the left a bone by banning a piece of kit. What they fail to realize is that by setting this precedent, the federal government can easily ban certain firearm accessories like triggers, magazines, stocks, pistol grips, ect. Eventually all the features that make up an external magazine fed semi-automatic rifle will be regulated away if left unchecked. It is extremely dangerous to allow this precedent to take place, the socialists will exploit this as a back door for a future administration to eventually ban so called “assault rifles” which is their primary target.
President Trump also stated this week that he is in support of raising the legal age of purchasing a long gun from 18 to 21. It’s absurd to raise the legal age to acquire a weapon when the government can still demand compulsory service via the draft for 18 year olds. I was 18 years old when I first qualified with the M-16A2 service rifle in basic training. By this logic the government trusts 18 year olds with guns halfway around the world fighting for Uncle Sam, but doesn’t trust them when they want to by a long gun for defense or hunting. Also the Militia Clause under 10 U.S.C. Sec. 311 (a) The militia of the United states consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and under 45 years of age…
And then there is the issue of mental health. Before I get into that I would like to expose a few quotes written by prominent socialists regarding mental illness:
“Every child in America who enters school at age five is mentally ill, because he comes to school with an allegiance toward our elected officials, toward our Founding Fathers, toward our institutions, toward the preservation of this form of government that we have. Patriotism, nationalism, and sovereignty, all that proves that children are sick because a truly well individual is one who has rejected all of those things, and is truly an international child of the future.” – Dr. Chester Pierce, Harvard Psychiatrist
“Although they (the children of religious parents) appear to behave appropriately and seem normal by most cultural standards, they may actually be in need of mental health care, in order to help them change, adapt, and conform to the planned society in which there will be no conflict of attitudes or beliefs.” – National Training Labortories Report, “What are they Teaching our Children”, p. 121-122
Now you understand why secular humanism and Marxism is taught in public schools. To them, the definition of mental illness is a politically incorrect belief system that is inculcated by the parents to the children at an early age, and thus the Marxist “educators” must cure them through public education. I will now quote from a book titled “Brainwashing – A Synthesis of the Russian Textbook on Psychopolitics”. This is a technical manual that originated in the Soviet Union and is the playbook that the establishment controlled media as well as the state sanctioned doctors in psychology have been using for quite some time. Psychopolitics is defined as:
“The art and science of asserting and maintain dominion over the thoughts and loyalties of individuals, officers, bureaus, and masses, and the effecting of the conquest of enemy nations through “mental healing”.
They go on to further state:
“The tenets of rugged individualism, personal determination, self-will, imagination, and personal creativeness are alike in the masses antipathetic to the good of the Greater State. These willful and unaligned forces are no more than [mental] illnesses that bring about disaffection, disunity, and at length the collapse of the group to which the individual is attached”. – Pg. 9
“Any man who cannot be persuaded into Communist rationale is, of course, to be regarded as somewhat less than sane, and it is, therefore completely justified to use the techniques of insanity upon the non-Communist.” – Pg. 22
“The handling of youth cases by courts should be led further and further away from law and further and further into “mental problems” until the entire nation thinks of “mental problems” instead of criminals. – Pg. 28
“Religion must be made synonymous with neurosis and psychosis.” – Pg. 44
“The by-word should be built into the society that paranoia is a condition in which the individual believes he is being attacked by Communists.” – Pg. 52
In 2009, the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) published a report that was disseminated to state law enforcement that stated to be on the lookout for people that have certain belief systems. They state that anyone that opposes the following is considered to be a potential “domestic terrorist”:
- The New World Order
- The United Nations
- Gun Control
- The violation of Posse Comitatus
- The Federal Reserve
- The Income Tax
- The Ammunition Accountability Act
- A possible Constitutional Convention
- The North American Union
- Universal Service Program
- Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
- Abortion on Demand
- Illegal Immigration
You can also find the 2009 DHS memo sent to state and local law enforcement stating the exact same thing almost verbatim. I’m saying all this to paint a clear picture that this push towards expanding background checks and mental health will be a gateway they will use to keep those with politically incorrect attitudes and belief systems from obtaining firearms in this country. On the surface the push for keeping guns out of the hands of the “mentally ill” looks like a great solution. What most people fail to understand is that the definition of mental illness is being expanded by the subversive change agents within this country to include those who have a staunch allegiance to our Constitutional Republic, have a belief in a Creator, and oppose globalism and the socialist New World Order. We are the enemies of the New World Order and they are carefully conditioning society to view us as such. Patriots in this country are being demonized in the media and fast becoming second class citizens. Most Americans have been programmed to view those that are skeptical or question the narrative presented to us in our daily news as being “conspiracy theorists” or mentally ill. They have also expanded firearm restrictions for returning war veterans diagnosed with PTSD. They are going to exploit this to its full potential to keep guns out the hands of people who are in opposition to the “change” in this country.
Folks, it’s time to start paying attention if you care about freedom. We are on dangerous ground and it’s worse than where we were at under President Obama. Both President Trump and the Republicans in Congress are now having second thoughts and are softening their stance on the right to keep and bear arms. Even the NRA is backpedaling and is willing to compromise with the anti-gun subversives. Most conservatives in America are sound asleep and are constantly making pathetic excuses for President Trump’s lack of firmness. Believe me, I hear them every day at work. Historically, some of the most egregious violations of our Constitution have taken place under Republican administrations and their voters never utter a single protest. There is no debate or compromise, you cannot compromise a right. It is either a right or it’s not a right. The gun debate ended on December 15, 1791. And you cannot vote an unalienable right away like the rabid mob of emotional anti-gun bigots wants Congress to do. Neither the Legislative nor the Executive branch has any lawful authority to limit the 2nd Amendment and any public servant that does so is subverting the law of the land. The only way to legally alter or abolish the 2nd Amendment is through the Article 5 amendment process. Every gun law that is in effect as of right now is unlawful. Every gun law that is in effect right now has never stopped a person from murdering another person with a firearm. The laws don’t work, criminals do not follow the laws and I will conclude that passing more laws against firearms to treat societal problems aligns with the true definition of insanity.
