A Society Preparing for War?

Blogger Bob Owens makes an interesting observation after visiting a gun shop yesterday, which mirrors my own observations:

They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand.It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands , M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

But instead of tackling the real roots of violence, the the Democrat leadership keeps poking the hornet’s nest by advocating civilian disarmament.

On top of that, you have the media, which nowadays is no more than the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, running op-eds in a major newspaper advocating shit like this:

Declare the NRA a terrorist organization and make membership illegal. Hey! We did it to the Communist Party, and the NRA has led to the deaths of more of us than American Commies ever did. (I would also raze the organization’s headquarters, clear the rubble and salt the earth, but that’s optional.) Make ownership of unlicensed assault rifles a felony. If some people refused to give up their guns, that “prying the guns from their cold, dead hands” thing works for me.

Then I would tie Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, our esteemed Republican leaders, to the back of a Chevy pickup truck and drag them around a parking lot until they saw the light on gun control.

Can you imagine the uproar if someone printed a piece like this advocating restrictions on the First Amendment? And liberals wonder why we “cling to our guns?”

Happy New Year.

I wonder if the banners think we're all stocking up on guns and ammo just so we'll willingly turn them in when told to do so. I know I'm not alone in saying I will fight to defend my firearms and my freedom.

The question is, how can we let the politicos know that we'll fight without having them construe our warning as a "direct threat"?

I've also read a number of places online where folks wouldn't just sit back and wait to be rounded up, but instead would go looking to cut off the head of the snake, in other words, they will go after the folks who give the orders to confiscate guns/gun owners. Do the folks who would give such orders really think they'll be safe anywhere in the country after giving such an abominable order?
