Who needs enemies with friends like this?
You will either be in the country or out, and if you are in, you will stay in and you will comply.
That is your choice . . . for the moment."
I wrote that last year for The Dollar Vigilante in an article entitled "When They Come For Your Guns You Will Turn Them Over", and it has been republished dozens of times, often as not to vilify the very proposition and its author.
And, even after all the recent saber-rattling in response to Obama's threat to ban certain semi-automatic rifles, I still believe every word of that article. Most Americans will give up their guns when they are told do so. Not necessarily because they are afraid to die, although most are, but because they are so used to giving up what the government mandates be turned over. Guns may just be the next takeaway in a long list of takings by the State.
Others will come to the conclusion that guns no longer serve a purpose vis-à-vis protection from government tyranny because they have already given up all the rights that matter. From free speech to freedom of the press, all that which was once held sacred has been fully abridged. Even Bill Maher, a liberal's liberal, gets that irony.
