This is a post by Pastor Chuck Baldwin from Montana. He is a pastor of a non 501c3 church in Montana and has been sounding the alarm to Christians about what is coming for a long time. I feel that his message says it all which is why I’m sharing it:
The massive gun control bill that the Republicans in Florida just passed include:
*A mandatory 3-day waiting period for most gun purchases.
*Raising the minimum age to purchase any firearm to 21.
*Bans “bump stock” and similar “modifiers.” (A belt loop or rubber band will do the same thing. I wonder if those will be banned too.)
*Allows law enforcement to confiscate the firearms and ammunition based on “mental health” accusations.
The section of the bill allowing school personnel to be armed on campus (after nearly 200 hours of training) does NOT balance out the massive gun control measures just listed.
Plus, the armed teacher provision is voluntary and not mandatory. Therefore, individual school districts are free to not participate. Whereas, the gun control measures are required by law for every citizen in the State.
Please remember that the Florida House and Senate and governor’s mansion are all controlled by Republicans. This is the first time the State of Florida has enacted more gun control since the GOP assumed control of the Florida legislature some 20 years ago.
30 states have either already passed “red flag” gun confiscation laws similar to the one Florida just passed or are right now considering it. The State of Washington recently became the first State to actually confiscate a citizen’s firearm without the man committing–or threatening to commit–any crime. This will soon be happening all over the country as a result of these “red flag” laws.
Donald Trump’s Stalinist statement to take the guns first and worry about due process later–along with his enthusiasm to embrace more Democrat-sponsored gun control laws–was all it took for Republicans to join Democrats in calling for more gun control.
Folks, this is the most serious gun control effort of our lifetime. And the push is coming from Democrats AND Republicans.
All it will take is ONE MORE mass shooting (and you KNOW it is coming) and Trump and the GOP congressional leadership are sure to embrace an all-out semi-automatic rifle ban.
Sadly, many–if not MOST–conservatives and Christians are SOUND ASLEEP, as they assume Donald Trump would never let it happen. Even after he made his stupid gun confiscation remarks, they remain SOUND ASLEEP.
This is what worried me about Trump from Day ONE. And my concerns have been proven RIGHT.
I’m telling you, folks, if the American people do not stand against these egregious gun control measures RIGHT NOW, and forget about which party controls Congress or who is in the White House, the Second Amendment will be TOAST in this country VERY SOON.
Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) is trying to warn people about the gun control measures that the GOP leadership is already getting ready to pass.
THIS IS DEADLY SERIOUS. The words of Winston Churchill apply to us RIGHT NOW:
“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
To help folks understand the size and scope of what we are dealing with, I urge you to read my national column this week in which I go into detail about these gun control measures that are sweeping the country:
I concur with Pastor Baldwin’s statement. Our freedoms have never been in as much peril as they are right now. And I also wholeheartedly agree that another mass shooting will take place in the near future that will horrify the nation to its final breaking point regarding guns. Each one of these tragedies has acted as a battering ram against a weakening barricade. I believe the next major blow will be the one that finally breaks through. Both republicans and democrats are going to join together and come up with a bipartisan bill that will be the end of our 2nd Amendment as we know it today. They along with their collaborators in the media will brainwash the majority of the public (including many gun owners) into accepting their solution. They will state that since “conservatives” in Congress and a “conservative” President is on board then anyone opposed to it is an extremist.
Folks, this is democracy in action. Lenin and Marx said, “Democracy is indispensable to socialism.” Our rights are being voted away by a tyrannical majority. If you care about freedom and your children and grandchildren’s future then you must flood your local, state, and federal representatives RIGHT NOW demanding that they uphold their oath of office in the coming weeks and months. I also suggest, if you haven’t done so already, to buy a military pattern semi-automatic rifle. AR-15’s are great weapons, my personal favorite is the M-14 which fires a 7.62x51mm (.308) cartridge. The M-14 is my personal preference but I realize not everybody can wield a heavy .308 battle rifle so I believe that the AR is the best universal option that can be used by people of any kind of physical condition and stature. A skilled rifleman can still utilize them for long range use. I have made hits on man-sized steel silhouettes out to 700 yards with mine using 77gr match ammo. They are also a great rifle for women as well. I also encourage those that already have these weapons to seek out training from reputable schools like Thunder Ranch in Oregon. Don’t think that just having a gun is good enough. Get out there and train. Seek out like minded folks and get a plan in action. There is a reason why the socialists do not want the public to have these weapons and it has nothing to do with “keeping the public safe”. Every tyrannical government throughout history has always disarmed their population first before enacting their full scale oppression. Don’t fool yourselves into thinking it can’t happen here.
Until Next Time
