Bracken responds to a SEAL gun grabber: Molon Labe, sellout. Come and take them!

& check out the comments on this useful fool's (Gabriel Gomez's) Facebook link.

Gabriel Gomez is a former candidate for U.S. Senator of Massachusetts. He is a former Navy SEAL (credentials here) but despite his Oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, he has some qualms about protecting the 2nd Amendment in it's entirety, as can be read in his article he wrote for the Boston Globe.

        "Based on everything I have learned, seen and heard from the citizens of this Commonwealth, I can no longer support legislation that would allow the continued sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines..." - Gabriel Gomez
        "To the professional political critics, I simply offer this: volunteer for the Navy or for the other armed services, successfully go through SEAL or other special forces training. Then you will be fully qualified and prepared to fire as many assault weapons with unlimited high capacity magazines as you desire. " - Gabriel Gomez

I just posted this on Gabby Gomez' FB page.

I graduated from BUD/S Class 105 in 1979 as an officer, and took a NavSpecWar platoon to Beirut in 1983. I mention it only as my bona fides to address you. I am extremely disappointed that a former SEAL officer has apparently sold out for perceived political gain. (And please, don't tell any former SEALs that your wife changed your mind about firearms and the Constitution!)

As two men with similar training and experience with firearms, we both know very well that in the ultimate test, the difference between slaves or subjects and free men is the right to keep and bear arms that are similar to those carried by the King's men, the police, the military. Don't tell me that the 2nd Amd was written to protect duck hunters or target shooters! In fact, the American Revolution began at Concord and Lexington when the King's soldiers marched to confiscate the arms and gunpowder of American civilians.

Mr. Gomez, spare us your "I defended the Constitution" blather. We see through your politically expedient conversion to the dark side. You are now standing firmly on the side of King George and every other dictator who has smashed freedom, or tried to smash freedom, by disarming their "unruly peasants" in the name of "public safety." (BTW, did you know that the bloody mass-murderers of the French Revolution, who also disarmed their peasants--before executing them--were actually called "The Committee of Public Safety?")

I'm very ashamed of and disappointed in you, former SEAL or not, and I will do what I can to expose your selling out to the forces of rampant big-government statism. We don't want to live in a nation where the government holds a monopoly on meaningful firearms. We already know about many other countries that disarmed their populations before oppressing them. Just in the last century, Turkey, the USSR, Germany, China and a score of other nations disarmed their populations in the name of "public safety," and we know what happened next.

We all saw the movie about a nation that was made nearly gun-free, except for the police and the military. It was called Schindler's List, and you will not get us on those trains, at any time in the future, unless and until you disarm us--the hard way. We will not be led like sheep into the slaughter pens because in a moment of foolish optimism we believed the sweet lies of socialist politicians. You want to take them? Molon Labe, sellout. Come and take them!

Very much appreciate all the thoughtful comments. This is obviously a very contentious issue with good passionate people on both sides. I respect those that disagree with me. In the end, I will always try to do what is best for the country and the people and not the political parties. For those that disagree with me, I hope we can be civil and agree to disagree. Thank you.


  1. I quit arguing with them, if they don't want me to have a gun they should come and get it. I have it right here in my lap.

    1. let's put it this way, there metal detectors will NEVER find them...hehehe I was very clever about where most of them are hid
