ATF Says It Will “Shelve” .223/AR-15 Bullet Ban “At This Time”

ATFAmmoBan

A day after it was learned the ATF already ‘banned’ the ammunition – then said it was a ‘printing error’ – today says they are “shelving” the ban.  Shelving it for now, to impose it later.

In a clever redirect of public rage – Obama’s ATF now says it will “shelve” the ban on AR-15 .223 ammunition it declared ‘armor piercing’, after it was discovered they violated law by already banning the ammunition without following procedural law for public comment, which the ATF insisted was a ‘publishing mistake’ .

While some will say we can now breathe a sigh of relief, I advise against sighing at all.  They WILL BAN THIS AMMUNITION – and most likely overnight without any of us knowing it has been banned.  Note the clever usage of words in their statement below that they will not “seek to issue final guidelines AT THIS TIME”.

“AT THIS TIME”.

They will ban it later – but NOT AT THIS TIME.

Why?  Public and congressional outrage has to be diminished and then they will act in an instant once they think they have worn us out and can get away with it.

Of importance to remember is that White House Volksaufklärung und Propaganda Josh Earnest, stated last Monday that Obama is investigating new ways to enact further gun control by decree to his alphabet agencies.

“It would be fair to say, we are looking at additional ways to protect our brave men and women in law enforcement, and believe that this process is valuable for that reason alone” Earnest said.

So “the process is valuable for that reason alone”.  What ‘process’ is that?  Why the ‘process’ of Obama using Alphabet agencies under the Executive Branch to impose his will by decree outside of Congressional or public interference.  They find using that ‘process’ “valuable” – and are looking at ‘additional ways’ to do so.

See, this ban is a ‘done deal’ – a ‘cake already baked’.    What Obama wants, he gets by subterfuge, threats or imposition.  It is the hallmark of a dictator, and he showcases that fact every single day.

The fact the ATF has ‘shelved’ this ban “at this time” is IRRELEVANT because I doubt you will be able to go to your gun shop or sporting goods store and purchase .223 green tipped ammunition now, or any time in the near future for that matter.  The supplies are already bought up and what might be out there is available only in the secondary market at inflated prices.  See, the government has gotten good at creating a shortage by simply making statements that cause a run over fears of it’s future unavailability.

We can only hope that the House and Senate use this time to create an offensive and pre-emptive effort to stop any attempt by the Alphabets to impose gun bans and control via execrative actions and decrees.  But do not hold your breath – the GOP Leadership in both houses has demonstrated they will never stand up against Obama’s unConstitutional lawlessness when push comes to shove.

 

ATF shelves controversial bullet ban proposal

DEVELOPING … 

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is shelving a controversial proposal to ban a popular type of bullet, amid opposition from hundreds of congressional lawmakers.

The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue the final guidelines “at this time.” The proposal pertained to M855 “green tip” ammunition, used in the AR-15 rifle; regulators looked at banning it because can pierce police body armor.

The ATF said in a statement on Tuesday it would not seek to issue final guidelines “at this time.” The agency said it will instead wait until Americans have finished commenting on the federal regulations and evaluate their comments and suggestions before “proceeding with any framework.

The statement follows 52 senators and 238 House members joining in opposition to any attempt the Obama administration might make to ban the ammo.

“ATF will not at this time seek to issue a final framework,” the agency said Tuesday. “The issues raised (so far) in the comments ATF has received to date will require further consideration, and fully processing all of the comments will take time. Given the overwhelming interest in this issue, and the issues raised in the comments received so far, ATF will not at this time issue a final framework.”

Obama To Ban Ammo By Decree – Fast Tracks ATF Directive To Ban Sales Of Ammunition To Public

ATFAmmoBan

Internet takeover today.  Ammo ban tomorrow. The Regime is directing a ban on the production, sale and use of AR-15 ammunition to the public.

Now that Obama has taken over the internet using his Alphabet agencies at the FCC and FEC to impose secret rules, none of us have read, had any input or ability to stop – His Heinous is doing the same exact thing with guns and ammunition.

So without a lengthy build-up – here is the skinny of what is going on and what this evil regime in power is doing to strip your God-given RIGHT to arms and self defense as enshrined in the Constitution.  You better believe the absolute worst possible intentions and consequences here – because this regime is in-fact imposing this tyranny right now, right under your nose.  Shrug the warning off today – you will wish you didn’t tomorrow.

First up – Obama’s ATF/BATFE has directed the banning of  .223/ 556 mm ammunition, the most popular round for the most popular rifle owned by Americans by RECLASSIFYING the round as ‘armor piercing’.   Note that this is THE SAME EXACT TECHNIQUE Obama has used to get the Federal Government to take over the internet today: by reclassifying the target so it falls under their jurisdiction and regulating it by implementing regulatory rules the public has absolutely no influence over.   So Obama will do to ammunition what he just did to the internet: reclassify it – regulate and ban it.

.223 is up first to be regulated and banned for retail sale by the ATF.  Manufacturers will no longer be permitted to sell their inventories to anyone except the government.  This will almost immediately eliminate what supplies are available to the public in the country, and we are already seeing this caliber flying off shelves and skyrocketing in price.  Once this decree by Obama to the BATFE is implemented -mark my words here – they WILL use this precedent to to go after other calibers and rounds – so that even if there are successful court challenges – the stocks of ammunition available to John Q. Public will be scarce to non-existent.  That is the intent.

Once retail sales to the public are banned, you can rest assured that somewhere in the not-too-distant future – possession will also be banned, and at that point nearly every American with an AR-15 or similar rifle will be an automatic federal felon.  The first step with the camel’s nose under the tent is what Obama’s ATF is doing now.  The camel can only go forward until it is completely inside the tent taking up everything. Once Obama and his Alphabets get away with this – they will be able to get away with whatever it is they seek to do to disarm you.

So now that this tyrannical evil regime in Washington has taken over the internet with power to control communication and information – now it apparently time to disarm the American people.  Given the absolute silence and lack of any pushback against every imposition of tyranny being erected upon us – I fear for what is soon to come upon us all, at the hand of the very government solidifying and entrenching it’s power.

As history teaches, once a government disarms their people – they enslave or exterminate those people.  I firmly believe that is what this regime and this government will do, whether by an insidious design they are implementing, or by the natural course of events that push all tyrannical regimes to follow in order to keep total control.

If you have not stockpiled, and you are not locked and loaded – now is the time.  Tomorrow may be too late.

Obama to ban bullets by executive action, threatens top-selling AR-15 rifle

It’s starting.

As promised, President Obama is using executive actions to impose gun control on the nation, targeting the top-selling rifle in the country, the AR-15 style semi-automatic, with a ban on one of the most-used AR bullets by sportsmen and target shooters.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives this month revealed that it is proposing to put the ban on 5.56mm ammo on a fast track, immediately driving up the price of the bullets and prompting retailers, including the huge outdoors company Cabela’s, to urge sportsmen to urge Congress to stop the president.

Wednesday night, Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, stepped in with a critical letter to the bureau demanding it explain the surprise and abrupt bullet ban. The letter is shown below.

The National Rifle Association, which is working with Goodlatte to gather co-signers, told Secrets that 30 House members have already co-signed the letter and Goodlatte and the NRA are hoping to get a total of 100 fast.

“The Obama administration was unable to ban America’s most popular sporting rifle through the legislative process, so now it’s trying to ban commonly owned and used ammunition through regulation,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA, the group’s policy and lobby shop. “The NRA and our tens of millions of supporters across the country will fight to stop President Obama’s latest attack on our Second Amendment freedoms.”

At issue is so-called “armor-piercing” ammunition, an exemption for those bullets mostly used for sport by AR-15 owners, and the recent popularity of pistol-style ARs that use the ammo.

The inexpensive 5.56 M885 ammo, commonly called green tips, have been exempt for years, as have higher caliber ammunition that also easily pierces the type of soft armor worn by police, because it’s mostly used by target shooters, not criminals.

But now BATFE says that since the bullets can be used in semi-automatic handguns they pose a threat to police and must be banned from production, sale and use. But, as Goodlatte noted, offered no proof. Federal agencies will still be allowed to buy the ammo.

“This round is amongst the most commonly used in the most popular rifle design in America, the AR-15. Millions upon millions of M855 rounds have been sold and used in the U.S., yet ATF has not even alleged — much less offered evidence — that even one such round has ever been fired from a handgun at a police officer,” said Goodlatte’s letter.

Even some police don’t buy the administration’s claim. “Criminals aren’t going to go out and buy a $1,000 AR pistol,” Brent Ball, owner of 417 Guns in Springfield, Mo., and a 17-year veteran police officer told the Springfield News-Leader. “As a police officer I’m not worried about AR pistols because you can see them. It’s the small gun in a guy’s hand you can’t see that kills you.”

Many see the bullet ban as an assault on the AR-15 and Obama’s back-door bid to end production and sale.

“We are concerned,” said Justin Anderson with Hyatt Gun Shop in Charlotte, N.C., one of the nation’s top sellers of AR-15 style rifles. “Frankly, we’re always concerned when the government uses back-door methods to impose quasi-gun control.”

Groups like the National Shooting Sports Foundation suggest that under BATFE’s new rule, other calibers like popular deer hunting .308 bullets could be banned because they also are used in AR-15s, some of which can be turned into pistol-style guns. “This will have a detrimental effect on hunting nationwide,” said the group.

ATF To Ban Non-Lead Ammo At Same Time EPA Plans To Ban Lead Ammo

AmmoBan

Federal agencies looking to employ a pincer move designed to ban just about all ammunition from public sale, because if they cannot ban the guns, they opt instead to ban the ammunition that feeds them.

More details and follow-up from the efforts the Obama regime is making to classify .223 ball ammunition as ‘armor piercing’ at the same time we learn the EPA is making moves to ban lead ammunition.

You know, when the Redcoats came to seize the ammunition stores of the Colonists at Lexington and Concord – a war of independence from tyrants resulted.  Today, when attempting to do the same thing utilizing a heinous federal bureaucracy, America yawns as plans to disarm them move forward with frightening speed.

ResistOdds

 

A Pincer Movement on Ammunition

The ATF is one side, and the EPA is the other.

(Snippets from this story follow – go to link to read the full article)

As it wanes, the Obama administration grows bold, and even reckless, on matters that send a thrill up the leg of its most leftward supporters. Its new attack on so-called armor-piercing ammunition — which is, in reality, a very broad attack on ammunition across the board — is a dangerous and destructive example of the administration’s late-days slide into rule-by-decree.

…In 1986, Congress revised the Gun Control Act, inserting prohibitions against the manufacture and import of “armor-piercing ammunition.” Armor-piercing ammunition does not mean ammunition designed to defeat body armor — that would be too simple. It means, most broadly, ammunition that could defeat the soft body armor of the sort that was cutting edge in the 1980s. But banning all such ammunition as “armor-piercing” would have meant a ban on practically all hunting rifles…

…So, “armor-piercing” came to mean ammunition made of certain materials (tungsten alloys, steel, etc.) that could defeat certain kinds of body armor and that could be fired from a handgun. …It’s almost as though the agency is reasoning toward some specific, predetermined goal, isn’t it?

…The upshot of all this maneuvering is that the ATF intends to revoke the sporting exemption for certain popular kinds of .223 ammunition, allowing it to be reclassified as armor-piercing and therefore banned, even though it is not designed as armor-piecing ammunition and has no special armor-piercing characteristics. …But the fact that there is a multi-shot handgun commercially available for those non-lead .223 rounds means that such ammunition can be banned as armor-piercing, even though it is not armor-piercing ammunition, by use or by design.

So, everybody goes back to lead, right?

Wrong. Environmental groups have been pressuring the EPA to begin regulating — or to ban outright — lead ammunition under the Toxic Substances Control Act. They lost their most recent round when the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled that the EPA lacks statutory authority to regulate lead ammunition, but when has statutory authority stopped the Obama administration? The FCC has no statutory authority to enact net-neutrality rules — that’s why it has reached back to a 1930s, New Deal–era law for justification. You can be sure that the campaign to use the EPA or other federal agencies to ban lead ammunition is far from over. The U.S. Humane Society already is petitioning the Interior Department to ban lead ammunition on public lands.

What gun-rights advocates fear — not without reason — is that this is the beginning of a pincer movement, with the ATF banning non-lead ammunition as a threat to armor-wearing police officers and the EPA banning lead ammunition as a toxin.

…In a sense, the gun-grabbers were telling the truth when they said that they had no designs on our sporting rifles. But the ammunition for those rifles is another story.

Obama’s ATF To Ban And Outlaw .223 Rifle Ammunition

obama-gun-confiscation

In an ‘already done deal’, Obama’s ATF imposes back door gun control by banning the most popular caliber round for rifles in America by reclassifying .223 ball ammunition as ‘armor piercing’.

As we are seeing with Obama using his pen and his phone to issue decrees and order his alphabet agencies to take over the internet via the FCC and FEC - the ATF must have received a note and a call from Obama because over the weekend the ATF  announced it will issue a federal ban on M855 Ball Ammunition which is the most common caliber round for rifles in the USA.  The “ban”circumvents Congress altogether and as with the FCC and FEC Internet takeover – the “cake is baked” and the ban is already a ‘done deal’ and will be implemented next month.

Once this became public over the weekend, .223 caliber AR-15 ammunition has flown off shelves and the cost has skyrocketed at many retail outlets carrying the round.

The goose-stepping stooges at various Leftist forums and blogs are doing backflips of glee over this, calling the dictatorial move “brilliant back door gun control”.

Obama is moving quickly to impose his Communist tyranny and as history teaches, the moment a civilian populace is disarmed by a Socialist government, in short order they find themselves being exterminated.

BACKDOOR GUN CONTROL: OBAMA’S ATF PROPOSES AR-15 AMMO BAN

A notice from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) shows the agency is considering a ban on the popular M855 AR-15 round — by re-categorizing the round as “armor piercing.”

Once categorized as “armor piercing,” sales of the M855 rounds can be restricted or banned altogether under language in the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA), which describes marketable ammunition as that which is “primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes.”

The ammunition guidelines set forth in the GCA are intended for handguns, but are also being applied to ammunition used in AR-15 rifles because AR-15 pistols fire the same ammunition.

On Friday, the NRA-ILA responded to ATF’s pending ammunition ban, describing it as “a move clearly intended by the Obama administration to repress the acquisition, ownership, and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles.” The NRA-ILA made it clear that this is but a “continuation of Obama’s use of his executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.”

The ATF’s notice makes clear the agency will be accepting “comments for 30 days” prior to finalizing ban.

Who among us is stupid enough to think that the ATF and Obama would be moved to reverse their decision by an overwhelming majority of negative “comments” about this intended ban?  If anything it is more likely to get your name on a list for a future raid at their discretion.

The popularity of the AR-15 is the reason it is a target of the Obama regime. That the ATF unexpectedly announced on Friday night, the 13th that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” is more of the same M.O. of this tyrannical Imperial dictatorship.  It simply makes decrees and enacts “policy” via ‘executive actions’ or “rules changes’.  Instead of going through the legislative process as intended, Obama is using executive authority he does not have, to once again impose gun control measures.  But as the Leftists are correct in saying – if Obama can get away with his dictatorship and no one will stop his lawlessness, then he has broken no ‘laws’ and instead has made ‘new law’ to supplant an old and ‘ineffective’ Constitution.

All I can say, is what all of us should say now, and forever:

Supreme Court Justice Stevens: “Change 2nd Amendment – Only Military Should Have Right To Arms”.

BurnSecnd-Amendment

Former Supreme Court Justice advocates changing Six Amendments in the Bill of Rights – including the Second Amendment in new book.

As with all MarxoFascists (i.e.: liberals, progressives, Democrats et al.) there is consensus among their arguments that the Constitution is flawed because it restricts government’s power over the people and the states, and focuses too much on individual rather than ‘collective’ rights.  In other words, it’s not Communist enough for them.

While we would normally laugh off the insanity coming from screwball MarxoFascists like you would find on MSNBC – the reality is that such ideologues hold the highest positions of power in our nation.  As such – the advancement of their total transformation agenda of a Republic into a Communist State is the only focus and goal.

One such ideologue is former so-called Republican and Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who revealed his platform to commit treason in a new ‘manifesto’ he is hawking “Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution“.

One such Amendment he advocates changing is the Second Amendment.  His proposed treason is to change the text of the Second Amendment so that it reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”

Essentially what Stevens is advocating is that ONLY those serving in the military should have a right to arms.  Notwithstanding the history of every single genocidal regime ever come to power in mankind’s history, limits weapons to be in the hands of the military, loyal to it’s leader.  That is a history Stevens and his MarxoFascist traitors never seem to note.

The Constitution explicitly states “the right of the people”, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.  It says NOTHING about WHEN they are ‘allowed’ to keep and bear arms as Stevens’ proposal demands.

But even in regards to the MarxoFascist argument that only the militia should have arms, let us look at who the Founding Fathers considered the militia.  George Mason, called the ‘Father’ of the Constitution, wrote this:

“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except
for a few public officials.” — George Mason, in Debates in Virginia
Convention on Ratification of the Constitution

But in the world of the MarxoFascists and the tyrants they seek to empower – ‘the militia’ is the National Guard or the military – under the direct authority of the President to command.

A people stripped of arms are much easier to subjugate and eradicate by a tyrannical regime such as the one in power right now.  Our arms are the only thing that is preventing what is going on in Venezuela fro happening here.

FORMER JUSTICE STEVENS: CHANGE 2ND AMENDMENT TO IMPROVE CONSTITUTION

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has released a new book focused, in part, on “improving” the Constitution through amending the Second Amendment–by making the rights protected therein applicable only to a militia instead of the citizenry at large.

Stevens’ book is titled Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution.

As written, the text of the Second Amendment is: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.”

According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Stevens believes recent court decisions–notablyDistrict of Columbia v Heller (2008) and McDonald v Chicago (2010)–placed too much emphasis on individual rights, rather than on what he believes was the Founding Fathers’ primary goal: namely, to answer “the threat that a national standing army posed to the sovereignty of the states.”

His solution is to amend the text of the Second Amendment so that it reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”

In other words, the protection of the right becomes collective and is only protected for those serving in the militia.

Among the many problems with Stevens’ idea is the often overlooked fact that the Second Amendment did not create a right when it was ratified in 1791. Rather, the Founding Fathers created the Second Amendment to protect a portion of the “certain unalienable Rights” with which man was “endowed by [his] Creator.”

The rights protected by the Second Amendment are individual rights, as are the rights that are protected, but not created, by the First, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments, among others.

Patriot Who Survived Castro’s Cuba Slams Gun Control Legislators

MarxistGunControl

Consider this as passionate a warning to the American people as ever has been made by polished politicians.  We are being sold into subjugation, called out by a man who sees history repeating itself right here.

Last April, a Cuban immigrant bravely stood up and lectured his government and his fellow citizens about the direction the Stalinists in government were taking the country.  It received no media attention and was almost buried, a deliberate attempt by the media to make his words disappear.  Thankfully Conservative outlets saved the exchange and kept the passionate truth alive which I have just seen for the first time.

Manuel Martinez, who narrowly escaped Cuba in 1962 after being imprisoned for opposing Fidel Castro, passionately defends the Second Amendment in front of Oregon’s Senate Judiciary Committee.

Martinez-SocialistGunBan

Martinez passionately compared the state lawmakers’ attempts to pass gun control to what he witnessed and experienced in Castro’s Communist revolution in Cuba, and he chastised the judiciary committee while warning his fellow citizens what is happening to them under the guise of safety and security.

“You say you want to protect the people. You’re not going to protect nobody… A very powerful man tried to sell me this 50 years ago. I didn’t buy it… This is Marxism, plain and clear. Come on, tell me I’m wrong, I’ve been there when you were learning how to walk… A very powerful man put me in chains… You sell THIS to the people who do not have self respect, self-determination. And they are weak. And they love to be subjugated. And be dependent on the government. You don’t sell that to me sir. This is TREASON. This is an ASSAULT on the dream of the founding fathers. They didn’t die for THIS. I come here, for years, talking about what happened, while you people, sink to this.”

“malicious individuals, masquerading as Democrats,.. established … a dictatorial regime … in my nation called Communism, Socialism, Stalinism, Marxism, and whatever other named -ism you want to put on it.  The reason why it was done was to take away the guns from the People.”

Here is the transcript of his entire exchange, but you cannot capture the passion and the anger or the fear in the printed words as the video reveals.  If only Americans born here were as passionate for the rights that are being stripped from them.

My name is Manuel Martinez.  Born in Cuba.  American Citizen for more than 40 years.  I oppose any manipulation, any regulation or disruption of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

In 1957 a Revolution … individuals … malicious individuals, masquerading as Democrats, revolutionaries, established a regime … a dictatorial regime … in my nation.  Called Communism, Socialism, Stalinism, Marxism, and whatever other named -ism you want to put on it.  The reason why it was done was to take away the guns from the People.   The right of the People to wear guns.  That is a God-given Right.  It’s not given by anybody.  It’s not given by any group.   It’s the same thing as freedom, which is a God-given Right.  And no one, absolutely no one, has the authority to take it away.  To cease to defend the Second Amendment, and my God-given Right of freedom, will cease only with my death.

I’ve been through it.  I’ve been there.  You people don’t know what freedom is because you never lost it.  You haven’t been tortured.  You haven’t been [sic] assassinations, you haven’t been mothers begging for the life of their son not to be killed because the only reason is they wanted to be free.  And they killed the mothers and they killed the son.

So my way to protest, the way to oppose, because if we keep tangling with the Second Amendment, we are open the same way that Cuba was open for Communism.  China, Poland, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Venezuela, on and on.  A dictatorial regime that will destroy this country, in the same way that it destroyed those ones that I mentioned to you.

Gun Control does not protect anybody.  It doesn’t protect the citizens, it doesn’t protect the People.  The only reason for gun control is for the Government to be protected from the Citizens.  In that way the Government can manipulate the People and subjugate them.  That’s what’s happened in Cuba for 52 years … 54.  

I came here for freedom.  At the time I came here it was different.  This country opened their arms for me … I couldn’t get it in Cuba.  And they opened their arms for me, I probably wouldn’t get it here today.  I hope that I get clear with you, and you understand my point of view.  I think that concludes my testimony.  

Freedom!  Freedom!

We Must Strip You Of Rights, Imprison & Kill You In The Name Of Security And Public Safety

GunRegistrationGenocide

Demonization, capitulation, registration, criminalization will lead to Genocide And Brutal Civil War right here in what was once America.

There are few people that I have read that can virtually predict the future by simply reminding us of the lessons of history and Matt Bracken is one of those individuals. The day after a Federal judge upholds the unConstitutional and draconian gun ban and registration law in Conneticut, it’s fitting that I read an essay that puts the precipice of where this nations stands in clarity.

Before I excerpt some parts of the essay that I consider paramount to consider in terms of what portent lies in your near future – as an entrée to what Bracken himself adroitly points out in his essay about how tyranny and genocide is always imposed under the guise of ‘public safety’,  here is what the Federal Judge wrote yesterday in his decision to abolish the Second Amendment for citizens in CT:

“The court concludes that the legislation is constitutional,” senior U.S. District Judge Alfred V. Covello wrote in a decision published late Thursday. “While the act burdens the plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights, it is substantially related to the important governmental interest of public safety and crime control.”

Yes.  History teaches that genocides like the Jewish Holocaust, the genocide of Kulaks in Russia and the Holdomor in the Ukraine are always done under the guise of ‘public safety’.  Right after the victims are disarmed in the same name.  This is always the raison d’être for imposing tyranny and genocide by the hand of the state.

Bracken notes:

I can hear it now—this is the United States of America! Abuses like the ones you hypothesize simply cannot happen here. ‘Gun registration does not always lead to confiscation, much less to extermination’. ‘We are not Germany or Russia or any of those other countries you mentioned’. ‘This is the 21st Century. America is different, and it can’t happen here’. ‘You must lay your irrational fears aside and place your trust in your government’. ‘It cannot, it will not, ever turn in the dark and tyrannical direction that you imagine’.

Oh, really? Google “wrong-address SWAT raids” and read any of the dozens of articles you will find. We should trust the government not to abuse us even further, once we are disarmed and helpless to resist them?

Here’s one such ‘wrong address’ raid from last week.  it takes the foreign press to report that cops shoot and kill a 72 year old man in his own house after they get the wrong address investigating a ‘robbery’.  At some point such raids are going to be resisted by those who remember history – and when coupled with new gun control dictates, Bracken notes from history where that will go:

…after millions of Americans refuse to comply with new firearms registration and confiscation laws. Action will beget reaction. SWAT raids will spur armed resistance, which will spur “death squad” reprisals by “off-duty” agents, exactly in the way I wrote in “Enemies Foreign and Domestic.” It is a natural, almost organic progression, once started—and it has started. Secret detention centers will proliferate like mushrooms in the night. The media will not report on them, even if screams are heard around the clock by neighbors. Particularly brave reporters who break the media silence to report on police abuses will disappear, or be found headless, as they are in Mexico today.

For that is what a modern “dirty civil war” looks like, in country after country, from continent to continent. If present trends continue, America is going to experience a very old witch’s brew on her home soil for the first time since the Civil War.

Before it gets there, understand the conditions that have already been groomed by the current political regime to consider Conservatives to be domestic enemies.  Understand how far down the path towards genocide this nation is already on.  I’m excerpting this section from Bracken’s essay on how demonization leads to actions such as registration, criminalization, incarceration and ultimately, extermination.  Remember, demonization of a segment of people by a government or ruling class ALWAYS results in those same rulers exterminating the group they have demonized.  Demonization/scapegoating makes their removal from society acceptable to the masses, and even applauded by acolytes.  We are already well into this phase.

The Scapegoat Express

Scapegoating an unpopular group is standard operating procedure for budding socialist dictators wrecking once-free economies. For the Soviets, it was the Kulaks; for the Chinese it was the so-called “landlords.” I could list more recent cases to include Cambodia, Uganda, Guatemala, Rwanda and others. Once disarmed and helpless to resist, the hated national scapegoats are slaughtered by the millions.

Probably few Turks, Germans or Russians gave a thought to the ultimate aim of their new gun registration laws, passed quite plausibly in the name of public safety. But national gun registration is a slow-acting poison, sweet and easy to swallow, but potentially becoming deadly only years later, when a tyrant takes the reins of power and inevitably sends for the list. He begins with his most dangerous enemies and works his way through the list, marching the helpless scapegoats into deserts or gas chambers or gulags after disarming them.

In America today, we are seeing the beginning of an insidious scapegoating process, with older conservative white Christian males designated as the nationalLucifer du jour, fair game for any vicious attack. Famous black movie stars joke about murdering white folks and white liberal media stars laugh along with them, conveying elite acceptance of the prevailing “evil whitey” meme.

Filled from birth on a steady diet of the pervasiveness of white racism in America, rage-filled urban youths across the nation play “the knockout game” with often fatal results for their randomly selected white or Asian victims. Meanwhile, the elite liberal media fail to notice the national scope of the almost weekly occurrences. Google “the knockout game” and start reading the dozens of local stories that the media refuse to connect or identify as part of a dangerous national trend.

And it doesn’t stop with knocking out random passers-by with sucker punches and then kicking them in head until they are dead, disfigured for life, or in comas. Have you ever heard of “The Knoxville Horror”? How about “The Wichita Horror”? Google them, read the local news articles about them, and ask yourself how much national media attention those cases and others like them would garner had the races been reversed.

When alternately trumpeting or ignoring crime stories based entirely on the races of the perpetrators and the victims isn’t enough to convey the media’s full slant, they will invent stories or lie freely, as we saw in the Trayvon Martin case, with video footage edited and spliced to deliberately portray “white-Hispanic” George Zimmerman as a racist killer. Selectively covering or ignoring crimes depending on the races of the victims and perpetrators is a vital part of the process of scapegoating. The unspoken message is clearly conveyed: crimes against disfavored groups just don’t matter. The violence prone absorb the lesson, and the result is a wave of racial attacks such as those described under the rubric of “the knockout game.”

Or consider the types of cartoons that are considered acceptable today in mainstream publications, portraying prototypical older white Christian men—presumably filthy-rich conservative Republicans—as hate-spewing maniacal villains, complete with fangs, Confederate flags, prominent Christian crosses and gigantic, threatening guns. Compare these viciously racist cartoons to the vilest anti-Semitic cartoons created by Nazi propagandists before and during World War II. I am not speaking of cartoons drawn by nobodies and posted on obscure fringe websites, I am talking about cartoons printed in mainstream newspapers, cartoons that would be condemned if the targeted group was any other than the scapegoat.

Cartoons are not serious, you say? Then how about a paper in an approved and sanctioned semi-official U.S. military publication, written by a War College professor in good standing. Serious enough for you? Google the “Small Wars Journal” piece entitled “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A Vision of the Future,” by Colonel Kevin Benson, USA (ret), 2012. The “full spectrum operations” envisaged for the Army in the homeland are not made against hypothetical hostile drug cartels in the Southwest, or urban gangs, or the traditionally ambiguous and vague “Pineland Liberation Group,” or “Orangeland People’s Front,” hypothetical stand-ins named to offend no one, not even by accident.

This long-standing neutral naming protocol is tossed aside in “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland,” where the new domestic enemy that the U.S. Army must crush is a neo-KKK, a white racist “Tea Party terrorist” organization, headquartered in, of all places, Darlington, South Carolina. Yes, the NASCAR Darlington. Anybody who has been in or near an actual Tea Party event or rally knows the crowd is made up mainly of an older white population, a quiet group that leaves no mess behind, not even a stray poster, and causes no fuss.

Yet “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland” postulates that these white grandpas and grannies will be the very group that the U.S. Army will be called upon to crush in its first major battles on American soil since 1865. The message this paper sends throughout the upper ranks of the War-College-trained military, actually naming an ethnic group—Southern whites—as the national enemy to “hypothetically” be crushed by the Army in the year 2016, is simply mind-boggling.

The path forward that is indicated by the media’s growing acceptance of these vile and outrageous anti-white celebrity rants, cartoons, and articles is the same path that in previous eras led to the guillotine, the gulag, and the gas chamber for the scapegoated populations. But the final solution—genocide of the scapegoats—is only possible after the mob is sufficiently inflamed with hatred toward them by the mass media, in collaboration with an evil government. And time after time, it works.

We are seeing the opening stages of the scapegoating of white conservatives today, as the last election seems to demonstrate to the left’s satisfaction that a crucial political and demographic tipping point has been passed, and the ultimate power equations of raw tribal loyalty have changed in a fundamental way—and now it’s payback time.

We have seen this play out before in other countries and times, and it is deadly serious. Once the scapegoating gets far enough under way, it can pick up a life and a momentum of its own. For example, if the economy ever truly crashes, and the EBT system that feeds fifty million Americans goes down hard, leading to hunger, looting, and riots, (or we suffer other unforeseen problems of similar crisis proportions), the scapegoats will always be dragged to the forefront as the pre-designated patsy, to deflect blame from the government.

“It’s the traitorous Armenians! It’s the greedy Kulaks! It’s the filthy Jews! It’s the oppressive Rwandan Hutus! It’s the white-racist rednecks! Let’s go get them, and make them pay!”

The end result of disarming a scapegoat population is as easy to follow as 1-2-3:

1. Registration. 2. Confiscation. 3. Extermination.

And in this cultural and social climate, with class envy and racial hatred being stoked by the government and its willing partners in the liberal media against white conservatives, our socialist-leaning administration now wants us to surrender our most useful and effective self-defense tools, in the name of “public safety”!

Bracken’s entire lengthy but necessary essay is written to security agents and law enforcement because he considers appealing to government, the courts and politicians a waste of time.  Bracken notes that it is the ‘security’ apparatus that will be told to carry out what he fears is coming.

The essay is a long read.  It is an historical and factual read.  It is a prophetic read.  It is a sobering read.  It is a necessary read.

But it is where we have arrived.  The place where the State can decide to can do what it likes to you in the name of security, public safety, income inequality, gender inequality, and the host of excuses all Leftist despots beguile their citizens to embrace and accept before the mass graves are filled.

The entire read is here:

Dear Mr. Security Agent
