A gun without bullets is like a Progressive without propaganda. They don’t work.
The Gun Grab didn’t start with Bloombeg, Feinstein, Obama Hoplophobes LLC.
Stephen P. Halbrook at The National Review reminds us that the same arguments for and against were made in the 1920s in the chaos of Germany’s Weimar Republic, which opted for gun registration. Law-abiding persons complied with the law, but the Communists and Nazis committing acts of political violence did not.
In 1931, Weimar authorities discovered plans for a Nazi takeover in which Jews would be denied food and persons refusing to surrender their guns within 24 hours would be executed. They were written by Werner Best, a future Gestapo official. In reaction to such threats, the government authorized the registration of all firearms and the confiscation thereof, if required for “public safety.” The interior minister warned that the records must not fall into the hands of any extremist group.
In 1933, the ultimate extremist group, led by Adolf Hitler, seized power and used the records to identify, disarm, and attack political opponents and Jews. Constitutional rights were suspended, and mass searches for and seizures of guns and dissident publications ensued. Police revoked gun licenses of Social Democrats and others who were not “politically reliable.” Read the rest of the history here.
Come 2014, all ammunition sold to civilian gun-owners in America will have to be imported, a result of Obama’s crackdown on sulfur dioxide and lead emissions and accompanying harsh anti-second amendment Environmental Protection Agency regulations.
Obama is shutting down The Doe Run Lead Smelter in Missouri, a business that’s been around since 1892. Obama unilaterally imposed new air standards on the company that would have cost $100 million to achieve.
The Doe Run is the only remaining facility in America that poduces lead that is needed to make bullets.
The Washington Times reports that civil rights supporter Allen West warned: “Not only will ammo be even harder to come by, the demand and the process of supply will cause the price to skyrocket even more. And ponder this, there is an excellent chance that Obama will rig the market to where all ammo has to be purchased from the government, instituting an ammo registration. … So America, back door gun control is moving forward … [and] our Second Amendment rights are undergoing an assault by clandestine infiltration.”
After The Doe Run is shut down on December 31, the entire ammo market for our military and civilian use will be reliant upon foreign imports that can be stopped at a whim by import regulations by the federal government or even boycotts by other countries.
Contact your Senators and congressmen and make them aware of this national security and 2nd Amendment issue before it’s too late. WAKE UP AMERICA!
