                                           Confiscation and Compulsory Gun "Buybacks"



  For the first time in my life, I've recently heard two American politicians actually utter the words above in the ongoing gun control debate. Usually they will leave some ambiguity in their remarks, but Governor Cuomo of New York and Senator Diane Feinstein leave no doubt as to what they are seeking. It is widely reported that Governor Cuomo will make a bid for the Presidency in 2016, so pay very close attention to his words over the next few weeks as they relate to gun control in New York. Governor Cuomo said last week that he will be seeking an "assault" weapons ban and pushing an agenda at his State of the State speech in January that very well could lead to confiscation. See the link below for one such article on his agenda. In the article you will also read where he is trying the age-old anti-gun tactic of dividing gun owners by saying "I don't think legitimate sportsmen are going to say 'I need an assault rifle to go hunting'". We all understand, and even Governor Cuomo understands, that the Second Amendment is not about hunting. This is a divide and conquer tactic that we have discussed here in this blog before {scroll down to see the post titled Divide and Conquer to read what we've talked about in the past few months}. The tactic is to divide gun owners that have guns primarily for hunting from those that enjoy AR's and other military styled guns for sport, self defence and yes, even hunting. It seeks to divide gun owners based on what types of guns they prefer and for what uses they enjoy their guns. It divides the handgun shooters from shotgun enthusiasts; 3 gun shooters from hunters; semi-auto owners against bolt action owners. If they can get gun owners to side with them against a certain type of firearm, their tactic is advanced and their overall plan for all gun owners will move forward....with help of gun owners. Make no mistake about what the endstate is for these people. There is no difference to them between an AK 47 and your Grandfather's 60 year old Browning Auto 5 shotgun.Once they get rid of one type of gun, they ALWAYS move on to the next. Ask our friends in the U.K and Australia about that. After they get their "assault" weapons ban, they will go after all semi-automatics. They will transisiton their "assault" rifle talking points to say things like "You shouldn't need a semi-automatic to go hunting.....if you do, you should work on your marksmanship." Just remember and believe that an attack on one type of gun is an attack on all guns. Just because they aren't currently talking about your favorite gun or shooting activity doesn't mean that you and your guns are not on the list. They are.

  Senator Feinstein last week said that she will be pushing for a National "Buyback" of guns that she deems are not suitable for civilians to have, and that the program would be compulsory. COMPULSORY. The list of guns that she would ban will be extensive and will include guns well beyond the AR or AK types. Just today she said that she will push for a National Gun Registry of all firearms. Registration always leads to confiscation. Her list of guns will include weapons that Americans have owned for generations and will surprise gun owners that fell for the divide and conquor approach for incremental gun control. It shouldn't surprise anyone though, since we already have eveidence around the world as to where this will all lead. What they seek is a ban on civilian gun ownership. As I said on our MOG FB page a few days ago, "There are really only two reasons why someone would want to disarm law abiding citizens: To force their will on them (control) and/or to do them harm (crime)." Even her use of the term "buyback" is wrong and misleading. As Top Shot winner Dustin Ellerman noted in discussing the current gun control debate, these guns never belonged to the government, so how could it be a "buyback" program? This reveals much about her mindset, and the mindset of those like her, that everything is the government's first and foremost and from the government all things flow....including our rights. I often wonder if some of the politicians have their fingers crossed behind their backs as they take their oath of office to "Support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic". Think I'm crazy that they will go after other guns once they get their ban on military styled guns? Think they won't come after your handguns or semi-automatic guns? Just take a look at the statue at the United Nations. That's a revolver with its barrel bent and tied in a knot. They display their intent; we just need to pay attention.

  The anti-gun crowd has done well at dividing gun owners and getting some of us to side with them when going after a certain type of gun. How many times have you overheard a gun owner utter the talking points of an anti-gun group? I hear it far too often. The mentality of "well, she's not talking about my guns, so I don't care" will do us all in as a whole. Another thing that will do us all in is the infighting amongst ourselves and the various Second Amendment groups. In the Middle East they have a saying: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." This is a phrase and a mindset that we should adopt as our mantra for combating the anti-gun groups and politicians. I wish that everyone rushing out to buy every AR and high capacity magazine on the rack would also set aside a few dollars to join the NRA. Numbers matter and dollars matter. Politicians would take note if one million new members joined the NRA as fast as every AR and 30 round magazine flew off the shelf.  I understand that some folks hold a grudge against the NRA for something they didn't agree with, but the NRA is not the enemy. They are the enemy of our enemy. There is a reason that the media and the anti-gun groups and politicians attack the NRA so viciously. The NRA has clout and politicians can hear them coming in their direction from a mile away.....and they tremble. They fear the NRA. If you don't personally agree with everything the NRA has done in the past 30 or 40 years, join the NRA and vote in the NRA elections. Work to change the organization from the inside. You can't change things from the outside looking in.
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

  1. Excellent post Monty and 100% right on. After the guns are gone they will go after knives and not just "assult" knives...kitchen knives as our friends in the UK just informed me.

  2. Well said brother, well said. They need to know that we mean business. That we will protest peacefully, sign petitions, and write our legislators.... until they try to disarm us. "The beauty of the second ammendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." -Thomas Jefferson

    2. This sounds excactly like what it is an attempt to take not only my guns but also my rights to own them.I will fight against anyone with that mind setas a veteren and taxpaying american they don't give me much choice. It's so sad that the general public are a bunch of sheeple that will believe what they hear in light of the most recent tragic events.they don't understand that it's not the firearm it's the black heartedness in some peoples make up, before it was knives ,sticks and stones and just today I saw a woman assualted with an Ice chest, I guess we should go ahead and outlaw Ice chests, cars, alcohol, cigerettes, the latter three kill way morepeople than guns. People please stand up and see what they are trying to do today our guns tomorrow our freedom and we will be helpless to defend ourselves from the very people that are in control thats why we were allowed to have them in the first place to defend ourselves from the government please don't be sheeple get busy and fight for what is rightfully ours, together we are the voice of the goverment. I for one plan on fighting any politician that trys to take mine that includes Feinestein good luck wth that.

    3. Hooah. They've finally revealed what we always knew they were after. Thank you for reading the blog. I really appreciate it.

  3. Monty,

    You know how frosted RKBA types get when gun grabbers either play fast and loose with the facts, or attempt to legislate/regulate out of ignorance? yeah, I know you do.

    Well, don't make the same mistake as they make. Gun registration [b]does not always lead to confiscation.[/b] I'm not saying whether that's their goal or not, nor am I saying that it [b]never[/b] leads to confiscation. Simply that it doesn't always. Take a look north of the border at Canada, and consider their "Long Gun Registry".

    Stick with the facts, and make sure you have them right. Does wonders for credibility.

    And remember, center mass.

    1. I beg to differ on the registration/confiscation point. Everywhere you look, it eventually leads to that. Take Germany in the '30's, Russia in the early part of the last century, England and Australia in the 90's or New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina where Police Officers went door to door and set up traffic control points as well as boat patrols to confiscate guns from the law abiding citizens while the criminal element with their unregistered firearms went about their criminal ways. Just because Canada hasn't (yet) gone about confiscation of long guns, doesn't mean they won't or wouldn't. Look no further than the comments of just two of the anti-gun politicians above to know what their end state is. Diane Feinstein has said in the past that if she could get 51 votes in the Senate for a complete and total ban of ALL firearms, that she would do it. Do you trust them in spite of their words because Canada hasn't yet confiscated long guns, or do you trust what history teaches us will happen? Canada, by the way,is starting to undo some of their strict laws as they have been found to have almost no affect on crime. I wish that our anti gun politicians and groups would learn that. You don't make innocent people safer by disarming innocent people. I do not trust them for good reason. I stand by the registration leads to confiscation view point, because that is what history teaches us.

  4. I like the gun shops because very interesting to know about new guns and also early times guns which are antiques. There are many guns available in the guns shops but its depends on type of work you want to buy a gun. For safety purpose handguns are best suited.
