Pastor Chuck Baldwin; one of the very few Christian preachers in America with guts.
This is an open letter written by Pastor Chuck Baldwin in Montana addressing the dangerous Senate Bill 7 that will be voted on soon. I advise everyone to spread this letter as widely as possible. Send it to your Senators, Representatives, sheriffs, police chiefs, and judges. We are on dangerous ground and I have no doubt that these “red flag laws” will be a catalyst to a second civil war in America if this continues. Never forget that Donald Trump was the one who said shortly after the Parkland, FL school shooting last year to, “Take the guns first, due process second.” I have no doubt that if this egregious bill passes both houses, the President will sign it especially when it already has Republican support.
Pastor Baldwin writes as follows and you can read the original column here: https://chuckbaldwinlive.com/Articles/tabid/109/ID/3854/My-Open-Letter-To-Senators-Lindsey-Graham-Marco-Rubio-Et-Al.aspx
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has announced that the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin conducting hearings next Tuesday, March 26, on Senate Bill 7, the Extreme Risk Protection Order and Violence Prevention Act of 2019—otherwise known as a national “red flag” gun confiscation bill. The bill was introduced in the Senate by Marco Rubio (R-FL). If this gun confiscation bill passes the U.S. Senate, it will most certainly pass the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives, and President Donald Trump absolutely WILL sign it into law.
I am writing this open letter to Senators Rubio and Graham, President Trump and the untold numbers of legislators, judges and lawmen that will be working together to facilitate and execute the confiscation of the arms of innocent American citizens—citizens who have not even been charged with a crime.
I have purchased a full-page ad in the capital city newspaper in my home State of Montana, the Helena Independent Record, in which the following letter will appear this Sunday, March 24. I urge readers to feel free to use, copy, promote, publish, etc., this open letter in an attempt to bring this information to the attention of as many people as possible.
The GOP faithful are mostly in denial about what Donald Trump and many Republican senators are up to. They refuse to acknowledge that Trump, Graham, Rubio, et. al are about to enact a gun confiscation bill that rivals anything in Nazi Germany or Stalin’s Russia.
If S.7 becomes law, NO gun owner (and that means YOU) will be protected from the seizure of their firearms. It will not matter that they have not committed a crime; it will not matter that they have not been charged with a crime; and it will not matter that they have never even threatened to commit a crime. And they won’t even realize that it’s happening until the SWAT team bangs on their door at 5am to seize their guns.
The letter below is an in-depth, passionate appeal to everyone involved to STOP S.7 from becoming law. The letter speaks for itself.
Again, I urge everyone to take this open letter and get it into the hands of as many people as you can. If the American people do not arise in massive numbers against this bill, it WILL pass. We are getting NO HELP on this from the NRA or the vast majority of so-called pro-Second Amendment Republicans. Ron Paul, Gun Owners of America (GOA) and a few others are trying to warn the American people about this communistic bill. But that’s about it.
I beg you, folks, distribute this open letter to your friends, your family members, your neighbors, your sheriffs, your chiefs of police, your legislators, your local judges—distribute this letter to EVERYONE. We don’t have much time. And I mean that literally.
[Begin my open letter to Senators Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, et. al]
I know I am speaking for tens of thousands of my fellow Montanans and tens of millions of my fellow Americans when I say what I’m about to say.
“Red flag” gun confiscation laws violate every principle of liberty upon which our country was founded. There is no due process associated with “red flag” laws. A judge’s order to seize the firearms from an American citizen who has not been accused of a crime, charged with a crime, convicted of a crime—or who never even threatened to commit a crime—based on the accusation of a single individual is anything but due process.
Our accuser could be a disgruntled employee, a bitter ex-spouse or relative, a vengeful neighbor, an anti-gun liberal or even an anti-gun policeman. By definition, “red flag” laws use mere suspicion of what one “might” do as justification to seize a person’s firearms. Tactics such as these have been used in virtually every despotic regime of history. In the name of protecting society, the rights and liberties of individuals were denied. Eventually, these repressive governments included political or religious persuasion as triggering “red flags,” which led to their disarmament—all in the name of public safety, of course.
You know as well as I do that when the rights of ONE American are abridged, the rights of ALL Americans are abridged. This is not yet a communist nation where the rights of the state—or even the rights of a majority of citizens—supersede the rights of the individual.
Furthermore, it is a fallacy to suggest that a mental health diagnosis, by itself, indicates that someone is automatically a threat to himself or others. Dr. Ann Bukacek, a highly respected medical doctor in the community in which I live, recently wrote:
Mental health diagnoses given by physicians or other mental health care workers do not predict firearm violence. As a physician for over 30 years who has treated many patients with mental health diagnoses and some autistic spectrum patients, I have not had one of those patients commit an act of gun violence. I did have a patient who bludgeoned a man to death with a blunt object, and that patient carried no mental health diagnosis. Psychopaths with no conscience, especially the more intelligent ones, usually escape detection and/or a particular diagnosis.
This doctor’s examination of the issue reflects reality.
Besides, under these “red flag” laws, exactly who is it that determines that someone is “crazy”? Is it one judge, who bases his or her conclusion on the accusations of just one individual? Is it up to politicians or government bureaucrats to define who is and who is not “crazy”?
There are some people who believe that anyone who would even own a firearm is “crazy.” Others believe one’s political or religious beliefs qualify him as “crazy.” Heck! We have all read the documentation of various governments (local, State and federal) that have assigned all kinds of “crazy” (even “dangerous”) definitions against people based on their interpretation of Bible prophecy or their association with political candidates such as former Congressman Ron Paul or their opposition to politically correct ideologies, etc.
Does the judge who issues a warrant to seize a person’s firearms under a “red flag” law provide the accused with an opportunity to defend himself BEFORE violating his constitutional and Natural rights? No. Does the judge provide an opportunity for a close examination of the accusations against the accused (including investigating the accuser) BEFORE violating his constitutional and Natural rights? No. Does the judge allow the accused to face his accuser BEFORE violating his constitutional and Natural rights? No.
“Red flag” laws turn the Bill of Rights and the fundamental legal doctrine that a man is innocent until proven guilty completely upside down. “Red flag” laws are a mockery to every constitutional principle of liberty since the Magna Carta. Seizing a citizen’s firearms by force (and thereby rendering him defenseless) without a crime being committed—or even the accusation of a crime being made—is old-fashioned TYRANNY. Such an act presumes a person is guilty until proven innocent.
Then there is this: After the guns are seized, it could take years for the victim to prove his innocence (or competence) and have his guns returned—and in what condition would they be when (and IF) returned? Furthermore, will you legislators, judges and police officers who collaborate to strip an innocent person’s ability to defend himself accept any responsibility when the real bad guys take advantage of this person’s vulnerability and invade his home and bludgeon or rape or even kill his family? Of course you won’t. But mark it down: You will be held responsible in the eyes of Almighty God—and in the eyes of the citizens you have victimized.
And are you really going to try and tell us that police officers are more competent and mentally stable than the rest of us? Are you kidding? The examples of improper, unsafe, careless and even homicidal acts of cops with guns are ubiquitous.
It was an FBI agent who was armed at a nightclub in Denver and then started gyrating and dancing like a madman until his handgun fell on the floor, discharged and wounded a fellow patron. But no official even questioned this officer’s fitness to possess a firearm—even AFTER that event took place.
Then there is the case of the Dallas police officer who walked into the wrong apartment and shot and killed the man who lived inside. Where was the “red flag” regarding this officer? And what about the two police officers in St. Louis who used a revolver to play Russian roulette, and one of the two wound up shooting and killing the other one? Why wasn’t a “red flag” raised about these nincompoops? These stories could go on forever.
Where are the “red flag” laws for the policemen and sheriff’s deputies in this country? The only difference between them and the rest of us who are being victimized by these draconian “red flag” laws is that they wear badges, and we do not—and the other difference is the vast majority of private citizens who carry firearms are not nearly as stupid and incompetent as the policemen mentioned above.
So much for equal justice under the law.
It has taken many of us a lifetime of hard work and labor to be able to obtain our gun collections; we have successfully passed FBI background checks and local and State requirements and obligations for responsible gun ownership, yet our guns are going to be confiscated overnight on the word of someone (an anonymous someone, at that) who claims we “might” be unsuitable to own a gun? Again, such an act turns American history and our Bill of Rights upside down.
Kris Kobach is the former Secretary of State of Kansas. He is a former professor of constitutional law at UMKC School of Law. He wrote an excellent analysis of the constitutional violations of these “red flag” laws:
- The seizure of guns without any hearing at all. The laws all contain an ex parte provision that allows the state to temporarily seize a person’s guns without even notifying the gun owner or giving him a chance to be heard. This is the quintessential denial of due process. The Fourth Amendment makes clear that a person cannot be denied of liberty (to exercise one’s constitutional right to bear arms) without due process of law. This confiscation is “temporary,” but it can easily lead to long-term or permanent confiscation.
- Based on the testimony of one unrelated person. The confiscation order can be based on the testimony of only one person claiming that the gun owner poses a risk to the safety of himself or others. The law [proposed in Kansas] deceptively says that it has to be the testimony of a “family member.” But “family member” is defined to include “former dating partners” and anyone who has ever lived with the defendant. So a jilted former boyfriend or girlfriend, or even a roommate from years ago, could easily set in motion the disarming of a lawful gun owner.
- Using a very low standard of proof. The standard for obtaining an ex parte order against a gun owner is absurdly low – one need only show “reasonable cause” to believe that the person may pose a risk. That’s even lower than the “probable cause” standard for obtaining a search warrant. In addition, the judge is forced to rush his decision and issue the confiscation order on the same day of the ex parte hearing. Within two weeks of the ex parte hearing, a hearing with the gun owner present must occur; the purpose is to put in place a long-term confiscation order. But even at that hearing, the standard of proof is far below the “beyond a reasonable doubt” standard used in criminal trials. Rather, it need only be shown by “a preponderance of evidence” that the person poses a risk of injury to self or others. What kind of evidence? Things like the “reckless storage” of firearms and drinking habits can be considered. If you keep a handgun in the bedside table and drink beer regularly, you may [be] in trouble.
- Shifting the burden of proof to the gun owner. The long-term confiscation order lasts up to a year, but may be renewed indefinitely. Once it is in place, it becomes very difficult to remove. To have the confiscation order lifted, the gun owner must prove he does not pose a threat to himself or others. Proving a negative is nearly impossible. Adding insult to injury, the bill even authorizes local law enforcement to charge the gun owner a storage fee for confiscating and storing his guns.
The implementation of “red flag” laws (at any level) is unconscionable and totally unacceptable. And I am here to warn you that there are millions of Americans who will never submit to such oppression. None of us wants to see acts of violence committed against law enforcement personnel in America, but when law enforcers begin carrying out these draconian “red flag” laws, they will begin lighting the matches of resistance in the hearts of freedom-loving people in this country like hasn’t been seen in over 150 years.
We have already heard about Gary Willis, the Maryland man who was killed by police officers in his own home as they attempted to carry out a “red flag” order to seize his guns. This man had committed no crime; he had not been accused of committing a crime; he was given no hearing and no due process. Mr. Willis did not attempt to harm the officers; he merely resisted their efforts to disarm him, and he was killed on the spot—in his own home—by police officers who had taken an oath to protect the liberties of this poor innocent man.
I assure you, Mr. Willis will not be the last American to resist the attempted confiscation of his firearms.
Do you legislators, judges, county sheriffs, chiefs of police, sheriff’s deputies and city policemen not realize that “red flag” laws are tantamount to a declaration of war against the American people? Are you so far removed from “the laws of Nature and Nature’s God” that you cannot see this? Do you not realize that in spite of all of Great Britain’s abuses of power, our colonist forebears did not openly rebel against the Crown until King George sent troops to Lexington and Concord to confiscate the colonists’ firearms? You do understand that, right? And you do understand, do you not, that the blood of the colonists flows in the veins of we Americans?
At what point do the American people come to believe that you truly do NOT wish to honor your oath to the Constitution or behave in a manner that truly honors America’s Second Amendment and the heritage of liberty that we all share as Americans? At what point do we Americans lose all respect for our civil magistrates and peace officers? For many Americans, that point will come when policemen bang on their doors at 5am and attempt to seize their guns.
Do you not realize that every single instance of an innocent person being subjected to a “red flag” gun confiscation order will only magnify and strengthen the resentment and animosity in the hearts of the community against these laws—and against the ones who are creating and implementing them? Do you not understand that this is a powder keg that could explode into all-out rebellion at any time? Do you want that? I don’t want that! I don’t want that for my wife and me, my children and grandchildren, my friends or my community.
Why would you legislators, judges and policemen even think about doing such a thing?
In the name of all that we hold dear, in the name of the brave men at Lexington Green and Concord Bridge, in the name of every American who has given his life in defense of the principles contained in our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and our Bill of Rights—including many of our brave police officers and sheriff’s deputies—and in the name of the Natural Laws of our Creator, please STOP this madness before you literally tear our communities and our country apart.
As a legislator, you must not pass any semblance of a “red flag” law; as a judge, you must not issue a gun confiscation warrant on the basis of a “red flag” law; as a sheriff or chief of police, you must not order your officers to confiscate a citizen’s guns on the basis of a “red flag” warrant; and if you are a sheriff’s deputy or city policeman, you must not obey an order to confiscate your fellow citizens’ guns on the basis of a “red flag” law.
I beg you to realize what you are doing. I beg you to refuse to participate in this madness. I beg you to join your fellow churchmen, clubmen, neighbors, friends and townsmen and help us turn back this dastardly attempt to transform our constitutional republic into another repressive regime that, in the end, would require The People to tear it down.
Again, I beg you to think about what you are doing, about the pain you are causing, about the lives you are ruining and about the potential harm you are inflicting on our country.
“Red flag” laws are on the wrong side of history, the wrong side of our Constitution, the wrong side of liberty and on the wrong side of the laws of God.
[End open letter]
And here is a short video of this letter on my YouTube channel. Feel free to share the video version of this letter as well.
Folks, please take this seriously. Our liberties—and maybe our lives—hang in the balance.
Today, our rights were trampled upon again by the charlatan in the Oval Office. The Trump Administration officially released its unconstitutional ban on bump stocks for semi-automatic rifles. Using the tactics of his socialist so called “opposition”, bump stocks have now been reclassified as machine guns to be regulated under the National Firearms Act of 1934, even though they are merely a firearm accessory that does not alter the semi-automatic feature on the rifle. However, the king has spoken and everyone who is in possession of a bump stock has 90 days to either destroy it, or turn it in to an ATF agent.
Let me remind you that Obama tried the same angle against M855 “green tip” 5.56 mm ammunition and proposed a rule to have the ammunition reclassified as “armor piercing”. His proposal failed and thus it was dropped altogether. President Trump used Obama’s unconstitutional methods and succeeded. Anyone in possession a bump stock after 90 days will be a felon. So much for a president that campaigned on “protecting the 2nd Amendment”. Donald Trump betrayed gun owners. He is now more successful than Obama at enacting gun control and getting unconstitutional regulations to stick. And most conservatives are still sound asleep, head under the covers, or making excuses as to why this man is doing what he is doing. And for all you fools that say, “Well it’s just bump stocks, I’ll never buy one so I don’t care if they’re banned.” You are sheeple. What Trump just did opens up a path for a future president who wants to ban semi-automatic rifles, to simply re-class certain parts of the gun and regulate them under the many already illegal gun control acts and “laws” that are on the books. Donald Trump has just set a dangerous precedent. Are you foolish enough to believe that this won’t be tried against so called “assault weapons”? When are you guys going to stop being stupid? Just remember, it will be bump stocks today, semi-automatics tomorrow, then your deer rifle, shotgun, and .22 next. The agenda is to BAN ALL GUNS. Once they get all the military pattern weapons out of the public’s hands, they will simply state that your .30-06 deer rifle is a sniper rifle and must be registered to be later confiscated. I recommend everyone reading this to contact your state representatives and demand that they exercise their power enumerated in the 10th Amendment and craft bills that declare federal gun controls null and void within the state. This can be done, which is why our Founders put it in the Bill of Rights. In case you forgot:
Amendment X: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
What happened today is just another major indication that the time is near. We are another minute closer to Midnight. At Midnight, the every single American will have to make the final choice whether they want to or not. Will they choose to stand upon their own feet once again and defend their Creator endowed rights like our ancestors did, or will they bow down, kiss the ring and put on the chains of enslavement and be subject to the rule of tyrants? Most people are cowards and will not fight. They are not prepared to lay their life on the line for freedom. They will be subject to whoever wins the war and they better pray that it will be us
Those of you who are awake, prepare and make ready. Get what you need while you still can. Ammunition is at a 10 year low with calibers like .308 at $0.40 a round for decent NATO surplus. I believe we have about a 2 year window for these prices before they skyrocket again. Think about it, if the Democrats take the throne in 2020, all the Trumpsters and Qanon balls that have been sleeping for the last 4 years will suddenly “wake up” in a panic and make a run for guns and ammunition. Stock up while the fools worship their dear leader. Don’t forget to train too. Starting next year, I’m going to make several posts about certain rifles, calibers, and field gear I recommend to every person that is committed to preserving their God given rights in the face of the coming New Age. I will go over battle rifles and handguns that I have personal experience with, along with training, drills, and tactics that we will need to know in the future for the rainy days ahead.
I hope everyone of you has a great holiday season. Cherish your time with your family and friends. I will be back with more posts starting next year.
Until Next Time,
Late last night, 12 people were gunned down by another “lone nut” in a bar in Thousand Oaks, CA. The man then turned the gun on himself in the classic fashion as most of these perpetrators do. 11 people were gunned down almost two weeks ago at a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh, PA. Earlier that same week, another lone nut opened fire in the parking lot of a Kroger grocery store in Kentucky killing 2. I’ve wrote on my blog in the past that these tragedies are going to continue until they get their gun control laws passed. These events are happening in everyday places, they are meant to create fear in the minds of the public until the public as a whole accepts their solution which we all know is gun control. The bodies haven’t even been removed from the scene at the Borderline Bar & Grill as the socialist politicians and their media mouthpieces are crying out for assault weapons bans, magazine capacity bans, ect:
They will never mention the elephant in the room which is the fact that California has the strictest gun control laws in the U.S., and yet this still happened.
If you think your guns are safe under Trump, THINK AGAIN. I will remind you of this:
Not to mention the bump stock ban:
With the Democrats in control of the House, I have a feeling he is going to cave in to more of their wishes, especially since they will be turning the heat up on their investigations. They will use their subpoenas and investigations as political leverage against Trump, and being that he has already proven weak on his 2nd Amendment stance, I predict that he will eventually compromise or “make a deal” like he always does to keep him out of hot water. Just wait and see, folks. I believe we are just one more national heartbreak away, like another elementary school massacre such as the one in Newtown, CT, from seeing a bipartisan bill that will take away more of our God given rights. It will be hailed by the media and both political parties as a time when, “… the partisan divisions are put aside and we can come together for the safety of our children”. I already see the writing on the wall, folks. It’s going to happen.
Now, I’m not trying to insinuate anything, but I find the behavior of both of these survivors of this shooting, who were also survivors of the Las Vegas concert massacre last year, to be VERY ODD. They are as calm as can be after this event. You come to your own conclusions:
Watch your 6’s out there. Stay aware and always remain in what Col. Jeff Cooper called “Condition Yellow”, a relaxed state of awareness of one’s surroundings, alert but not paranoid. Most people live their daily lives in “Condition White” which is easy prey for a would-be attacker. Most of these “Condition White” victims never knew what hit them.
In these days of societal decay and random violence I recommend reading these two books in order to help prepare you in the event of something like this happening to you:
Principles of Personal Defense by Jeff Cooper: https://www.gunsitestore.com/product/library/books/principles-of-personal-defense/
Left of Bang by Patrick Van Horn and Jason A. Riley: https://www.amazon.com/Left-Bang-Marine-Combat-Program/dp/1936891301
Watch your 6’s out there people. There is no safe place anymore. Remember they are attacking soft targets where they know that no person is going to be armed to shoot back at them. Avoid these places if you can. If you can’t, train and carry discreetly.
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
Executive order to ban bump stocks, no due process to take guns away from “mentally ill”, and Dianne Feinstein’s “assault weapons” ban asked to be included in school safety bill. Wake up fools. This man is selling us out.
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.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms.

Problem – Reaction – Solution
The media’s psychological warfare operation is now in full swing. Since last Wednesday, we have seen nothing but a barrage of crying parents, crying children, bloodied kids, and endless replays of the carnage that took place in Parkland, Florida. A large portion of the media circus is filled with half-truths and bold faced lies. And of course, some of the degenerate lowlifes that call themselves “journalists” cannot help but to interject their divisive rhetoric in order to inflame wedge issue tensions in the midst of tragedy. Their propaganda is beyond reprehensible, and Joseph Goebbels would be awarding them medals if he were alive today. Read what this sick female reporter named Becky Griffin had to say about abortions and mass shootings:
America is reeling, peoples’ hearts are broken, and the public is clamoring for a solution to recurring tragedies. All the emotion has been carefully funneled to support the establishment’s preconceived solution that is being put forth by the subversive change agents within the media and their fellow travelers in government. Their solution is quite predictable: GUN CONTROL. All across America, the cries are going out for the government to “do something” about this. The reality is, the government had its chance to do something, but it didn’t. The perpetrator in Florida was reported to the FBI TWICE, once by an individual close to him telling authorities that he was a ticking time bomb who had access to weapons, and was making threats to kill people. I suppose the FBI was too busy chasing phantom Russian collusion allegations to even give a damn about any legitimate threat here at home. The FBI has these children’s blood on its hands, blood that will drip along with the blood of the children that the agency slaughtered in Waco, TX twenty-five years ago this year.
Folks, the government is not the answer. You are being brainwashed by their Hegelian method of Problem – Reaction – Solution. They are playing on your emotions in order to strip away the rights of good Americans, including your rights as well. They need a sizable majority of support from the population in order to do it. It is one of the many “silent weapons” that those behind the scenes are using at their disposal in order to bring about the New World Order over the ashes of the Republic. As I said in a previous post, the population must be thoroughly disarmed in order to bring the full weight of their subversive socialist plan against this country. These mass shootings have terrified the entire nation, and it is no accident that most of these have occurred in schools over the years where our most innocent and vulnerable reside. Fear is a tool, and they want the public to be thoroughly terrorized and made to feel that there is no safe place from these tragedies. They want Americans to come to a consensus that the only answer is passing more laws to keep the public safe. It is a classic case of freedom being exchanged for false security and safety. They want parents to be in constant fear for their children when they go to school. Read what anti-gun activist Gabby Giffords had to say after the shooting:
Now we are going to get into some dark stuff. This is an excerpt from a book titled “Behold a Pale Horse” by William Cooper. Cooper was a Naval Intelligence NCO on a Top Secret briefing team during the early 1970’s and came across the long range plans going into the 21st Century to bring America under world government. He wrote his book in 1989 and it was published in 1991, long before these shootings became the epidemic they are today. I highly recommend people pick it up and read it; for many of his predictions he made almost 30 years ago based on documents he saw while in the Office of Naval Intelligence have come to pass. Read this:
The perpetrator in Florida fit this exact profile as well as 99% of the rest of these mass killers. I’m not saying that every individual that goes on a killing spree is a programmed murderer, there are people that truly do go off their rockers, but looking at the profiles of most of these shooters you will find a clear pattern. They are all seeing or were seeing a mental health “professional” at some point in their life. They are all medicated with Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRI) like Prozac which, according to the pharmaceutical companies, have listed side effects that include “suicidal thoughts”. Their labeled side effect is definitely a euphemism, what they should say is “homicidal thoughts”. Other societal factors come in to play as well, such as the increase of broken homes and the lack of coping skills that young people display today. Over the years the government along with “expert doctors” in psychology, have covertly conditioned society to change the methods of parenting and raising children. The result is a generation of young people without the ability to handle life’s problems. Children that are not able to cope are then prescribed medication in order for them to function in daily life. Children are being hooked on anti-depressants and behavior altering drugs at early ages as their parents foolishly believe and take the advice from the so-called “experts”. The Hegelian Dialectic of creating political and societal change through conflict resolution is definitely at work here. The hidden hand has created a problem with this epidemic of horrific killings in order to get the public to accept their solution which is the total disarmament of every citizen. Yes, their goal is total disarmament of not just the citizens of America, but the entire world. This is the official policy of the United Nations that is heading this effort. This plan has succeeded in most of the world, especially Europe. The United States is their last main stumbling block. And this is not some bullshit “conspiracy theory” like the socialists claim it to be. It is in fact, official U.S. Government policy. Read Public Law 87-297:

They will start with so called “assault weapons”, then work their way until they get every gun from every citizen’s hands. And folks, this is not really about guns or our love of guns, or whatever false reasoning they paint the other side with. I have been a student of history since I was able to read, and fully understand that once a population gives up their arms, they will be enslaved. Governments have slaughtered more people than anything else throughout history. The U.S. government is not immune to these statistics either. Read a little history on the government’s policy for the Native Americans during the 19th Century. For a more modern day example, read about the U.S. government’s 1993 siege of the Branch Davidians in Waco, TX. Governments take the first place Olympic medal for mass murder. Our Founding Fathers knew this, which is why the 2nd Amendment was placed in our Constitution in 1791 as final check and balance against a tyrannical government.
Now that you know the establishment’s solution, I will now propose an alternative solution: TAKE RESPONSIBILTY, ARM YOURSELVES, AND TRAIN. The first step is to understand that no place or person is immune to the threat of violence. We live in a violent world; a brief glance at the 5 o’clock news will confirm that fact. Violence has existed since the beginning of mankind. Like it or not, it’s bred in our nature, and burying your head in the sand and pretending that nothing is going to happen to you will only get you killed. One student that was interviewed last week stated that he never thought that it would happen at his school. He said he saw these events take place in other parts of the country throughout the years, but never thought it would happen to him. Most people believe that it will never happen to them. The police will not protect you either. They are always minutes away when seconds are crucial. In fact, the Supreme Court ruled years ago that no citizen has the right to police protection:
It’s time to take responsibility. The government is not going to protect you. It is up to you and you alone to take the necessary steps to defend your life in the face of evil. Now I understand minors cannot bring weapons to school, so I am not advocating that. I do believe that allowing a select group of school faculty that are well trained and proficient in use of firearms to discretely carry is a good step in the right direction. These tragedies are going to continue. The “Gun Free Zones” are just free killing zones for the perpetrators. I also advise people to get quality training from a professional firearm school like Thunder Ranch in Oregon, or Gunsite in Arizona. There are many of these schools throughout the country run by great instructors that have military and law enforcement backgrounds. Many of them have combat experience and know what works in a gunfight. I have personally trained at many schools in my state and will be attending a rifle course at Thunder Ranch this year. All the instructors that I’ve trained under are dedicated professionals who are very helpful and have a passion to teach ordinary citizens how to defend themselves. None of them were ever egotistic or “Rambo” types at all, contrary to what the media portrays them to be. I have seen them take an ordinary man or woman that has never fired a gun before in their lives, and have them hitting the X ring repeatedly by the end of a two day course. Over the years, I’ve spent a lot of money on my training, but I believe that my life is worth the money to acquire these martial skills in order to have a better chance at surviving a deadly contact. I also would not hesitate to defend the lives of others around me should violence ever break out. More citizens in this nation need to stop being complacent sheep and become sheepdogs, for the predators in society are all around us and are always looking for an easy target. Arm, train, be vigilant at all times, and never give up your guns no matter what.

“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” – Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle, Pg. 2
