“We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was ‘legal’ and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was ‘illegal.'” –Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”–Declaration of Independence, 1776
After President Obamas nauseating “Standing on the Caskets of Victims” speech yesterday, I came to the ultimate conclusion that part of Mr. Obama’s plan, just like every other tyrant in history was to make every action he does LEGAL and every action his opponents make ILLEGAL.
Let me give you a few examples so we can get on the same page:
1. If the proposed Assault Weapons Ban passes, it would be illegal for you to defend your home against an intruder with a so called “Assault Weapon” or Pistol that uses a high-capacity magazine…BUT it would be LEGAL for you to defend your home with a revolver or lever action gun (to name a few).
2. Taking this scenario a little bit further, if a door kicking burglar, high on PCP, enters your home and attempts to rape your wife or sodomize your 13 year old daughter using a pistol that has a high capacity magazine or “Assault Weapon” you must STILL remain LEGAL (although the criminal seems to not have got the memo about illegal guns)and take him down with the fore-mentioned revolver or lever action rifle..Oh, BTW, you also could also use a pump action shotgun, single shot shotgun, single shot rifle or black powder rifle too…although your odds have gone down tremendously against the intruders SEMI (OR FULLY AUTOMATIC) WEAPON…but congratulations, although you are dead and your family has been sodomized, you have remained LEGAL!!!
3. If any local state or federal Police Officer (or member of the military under martial law) attempts to go beyond his legal rights and tries to arrest or search me using unlawful deadly force or beyond what is deemed necessary I have the legal right to resist arrest, and use whatever force I deem necessary to resist (TX Penal Code 9.31, 9.32).
Yes, one of the fundamental principles of the 2nd Amendment is that citizens should have firearms (even assault rifles) to protect themselves against the tyranny of their LOCAL, STATE or FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. This includes Police who go beyond their legal rights. Most Police agencies are issued fully automatic or semi-automatic AR-15 type rifles and hi-capacity sidearms..you wanna go up against that with a lever action 30-30? I don’t think so. For you tactical minds out there, this is called PROPORTIONAL (or OPTIMUM) ARMAMENT and is considered fundamental in winning the fight.
As my readers know, I am not a big “Conspiracy” guy, but I would be amiss here not to mention the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 (a child of the Patriot Act) that Mr. Obama signed and ran thru the Senate with a vote of 98-0 (funny, I don’t remember the media talking about this??) that among other things, makes INDEFINITE DETENTION LEGAL FOR AMERICAN CITIZENS. This basically means, you can be held (without formal charges) AND WITHOUT DUE PROCESS OF LAW, indefinitely in jail, while being “Investigated” for Terrorism or any other charges they choose to make up….I really wish I was making this up guys, but look it up for yourselves. It also has this nifty “sub-clause” that allows State Governors to call up Military Reservist (Weekend Warriors with “REAL” Automatic Weapons) as FIRST RESPONDERS to Natural Disasters and “Terrorist Attacks”….You can take this info as far as you choose, but at the VERY LEAST, I bet this makes you look at #3 above in a new light, huh? Yeah, it did me too.
I know this is dated, but Here is Senator Rand Paul (one of the only guys in Government btw that gets it!!) begging in vain the Senate to strike the above clauses from the bill..as a sidebar, 98% of the people I know meet the description he gives of “terrorist”..see where this is going guys??
BTW, before the hate mail starts, I am a huge supporter of LEGITIMATE law Enforcement agencies and in NO WAY am advocating RESISTING ARREST or NOT COOPERATING with law enforcement or the Government just for the sake of rebellion or riot…the essence of this article is OBEYING THE LAW, WHEN THE LAW IS (MORALLY not just LEGALLY) CORRECT.
Sorry Mr. Obama, but I choose to read and follow the Constitution, Bill of Rights and Penal Code AS IT IS WRITTEN, not your twisted version you have “concocted” to gain control over the masses. I will continue to FOLLOW the letter of the law, as long as it is not twisted by an illegal and immoral government system, which our founding father knew was a possibility, thus enter the safeguard of the 2nd Amendment. I realize that I will be considered an OUTLAW in your eyes… I guess (and I think I speak for the majority here) I would rather be “ILLEGAL”, ALIVE AND FREE than “LEGAL”, DEAD OR A SLAVE!!
“DOMARI NOLO” and Stay Dangerous!
