The assault on the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment continues.
This time big business is getting into the mix and they’re aiming for gun stores right at the source of their revenues – their transaction processing facilities.
According to Larry Hyatt, owner of the largest gun brokerage firm in the United States, Authorize.net, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Visa USA and one of the world’s largest credit card processing gateways, has terminated their relationship with the firm.
If you read the summary of Sen. Diane Feinstein’s proposed assault weapons ban (read it here on her Senate page) it’s very clear that — despite having no idea what an assault weapon actually is, or how it differs from a semi-automatic hunting rifle (hint: it doesn’t) — Feinstein’s ultimate motive is no different than it was back in 1995when she told for the complete ban and confiscation of ALL weapons from American citizens:
Dianne Feinstein: “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States, for an outright ban, picking up [every gun]… Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in.”
I was discussing this Feinstein’s newest assault on our second amendment rights last night with some neighbors — men who have spent more hours hunting and shooting guns than most people spend watching television. Then I brought up this 1995 video. Our conversation naturally turned to “what if…” scenarios and how they would unfold.
A rifle behind very blade of grass. And blending into every tree.
As in, “What if…the government banned all semi-automatic weapons and ordered them be turned in or confiscated from US citizens who would not do so voluntarily?”
We all quickly agreed a violent revolution and rebellion would occur almost immediately. Most, if not all, members of Congress who voted for the ban/confiscation would be assassinated. In fact, what Bob Owens describes in this post “What You’ll See At the Revolution” is exactly what we described would happen.
Tens of millions of Americans will refuse to comply with an order that is clearly a violation of the explicit intent of the Second Amendment. Among the most ardent opposing these measures will be military veterans, active duty servicemen, and local law enforcement officers. Many of these individuals will refuse to carry out what they view as Constitutionally illegal orders. Perhaps 40-50 million citizens will view such a law as treason. Perhaps ten percent of those, 4-5 million, would support a rebellion in some way, and maybe 40,000-100,000 Americans will form small independently-functioning active resistance cells, or become lone-wolves.
They will be leaderless, stateless, difficult to track, and considering the number of military veterans that would likely be among their number, extremely skilled at sabotage, assassination, and ambush.
After a number of carefully-planned, highly-publicized, and successful raids by the government, one or more will invariably end “badly.” Whether innocents are gunned down, a city block is burned to ash, or especially fierce resistance leads to a disastrously failed raid doesn’t particularly matter. What matters is that when illusion of the government’s invincibility and infallibility is broken, the hunters will become the hunted.
Which very closely follows the thoughts described in this oft-linked and -discussed post: “What I Saw At The Coup”.
And the very first prey that would find themselves in the scopes of the rebels would be the members of Congress who passed this ban and the members of the media who have been their willing mouthpieces and agents of propaganda.
65.4 Million Gun Purchases Since Obama Took Office, 91% More Than Bush’s First-Term Total
There have been 65,376,373 background checks completed for Americans purchasing firearms since February of 2009, the first full month of Barack Obama’s presidency.
According to data compiled by the FBI, the number of Americans purchasing guns has skyrocketed since Obama was elected.
In 2009, there were 13,984,953 background checks for Americans buying firearms. If we subtract the 1,212,860 checks completed in the month of January, the total checks for the year under Obama were 12,772,090.
For 2010, background checks totaled 14,320,489. In 2011, checks were 16,336,732, and in 2012, 19,463,832. Background checks for the month of January 2013 were 2,483,230.
This totals 65,376,373 background checks completed since President Obama’s first full month in office, or 44,748 background checks per day!
By comparison, the number of background checks in Obama’s first term is 91.1% higher than President George W. Bush’s first-term total of 34,214,066.
Our rights as Americans are diminishing quickly! Our Constitution and the Amendments to it are being ignored, while our government is growing larger daily. We as American citizens are losing our RIGHTS given to us by our founding Fathers. We are loosing our FREEDOM! The Second Amendment to the Constitution gives us the right to keep and bear arms for protection against enemies and a tyrannical government.
Without the right to keep and bear arms we are subject to theft, persecution and murder without being able to appropriately defend ourselves. It is our decision, not the governments, to decide if we wish to keep arms to defend our families and ourselves.
It is absolutely horrendous that such tragedies occur in our society (school massacres, mall shootings, etc.). Does this make guns to blame? Are guns guilty of committing murder and violence? Or is it human or satanic evil?
There are many ways to murder someone. Automobiles kill people around the globe every single day. Yet we do not hear government speaking out for the elimination of all motor vehicles. Airplanes kill people, we still fly, even after “911”. Knifes kill people. Why do we still have knifes? Ropes and chains kill people, yet we still have them. Alcohol kills people, but it is not illegal. People kill other people (the most innocent of all people) through Abortion, yet abortion is legal!
Things do not kill people! People kill people. Evil kills people. Satanic forces kill people. Not things.
Our Forefathers were very insightful. They knew that a countries citizens must be able to protect themselves. Not only from thieves and murderers, but, from a government gone bad! A government that got too big! A government out of control.
The ability of citizens to own and carry firearms is a huge deterrent against would be assailants. If a thief were to enter your neighborhood and choose a house to vandalize, how would they determine which house? You need to stop and think like a thief. Lets see, if you knew that the owners of house “X” owned firearms and the owner of house “Y” did not, which house do you think they would pick? Well, I know that if I was a thief I would choose house “Y”, the home without firearms. Doesn’t that make sense? Unless of course the thief has a death wish.
The government also knows that an unarmed population is much easier to control, then an armed population. Control? Control you ask? Taking away more of our rights as Americans. Instituting whatever new policies the government comes up with for more power and control. You see, the government wants more control, more power and more of our money. What happens when the government rations our food, gas and other purchases? When they feel the need to tax 90 to 100% of our income? You say that will never happen? Well, president Obama is on his way to fulfilling that dream. He is close to collapsing our economy. Of instituting a One World Government. Look how fast he has rammed “Obama-Care” through congress! He has blatantly said numerous times that he wants to take from the rich and give to the poor. Was anyone listening?
Why has Obama vaulted to the top of the food chain in an extraordinarily fast time frame? From community organizer to President of the most powerful nation on earth! How has this happened? Could it be the work of Satan?
I know that owning firearms is not going to save us from an evil world. Only Jesus can do that. But, it may act as a deterrent. It may save people from sudden death. If the honest, law abiding citizens of America do not own firearms then evil acts will increase dramatically. Do you think evil people will buy weapons at a gun store? Do you think evil people will register their firearms with the government? I think not. They have illegal access to firearms and ammunition. Removing the ability of honest, law abiding citizens to purchase and own firearms will only lead to increased theft, vandalism, murder and other heinous crimes.
May God Bless America and Protect the Innocent! Amen
