Civil War’s A-Brewin’

Guns SC Civil War’s A Brewin’

 

A pretty, young, auburn-haired woman – mid-20s – drove down a lonely country road somewhere in Oklahoma. Appearing in her rearview mirror, at the back windshield, were two menacing orbs of light floating amid ashen dusk. The guttural roar of a souped-up big block shook the tiny Volkswagen Rabbit as a van-load of inbred thugs lurched left and drew alongside her. A ponytailed passenger taunted inaudibly and blew foul kisses between crude hand gestures. He pointed for her to pull over as the van repeatedly swerved dangerously close.

Inside the car, a man, asleep in the reclining passenger seat, was startled awake by the commotion. He rose and darted his head about, calmly assessing the situation. This only spurred the evil-bent goons. As they ramped-up efforts to run the car off the road, the man reached in the glove box, withdrew a military-grade, semi-automatic handgun – an “assault weapon,” if you will – and, with intentionality and great theatre, leaned across his young bride, pointing the gun out the open bay and directly between dirt bag’s booze-flushed eyes.

Van vanished amid a plume of gray smoke as wheels locked, tires screeched, and “assault vehicle” fishtailed – jerking to a halt with taillights aglow skyward from the ditch.

Not a shot was fired.

Back at the couple’s rural farmhouse, two boys – boys who would not be orphaned that night – played. We most likely played – my brother Pete and I – with assault rifles fashioned from sticks. I always love to hear Dad retell the story. He does it with an ornery, satisfied grin. “No one’s taking my guns,” he’ll say.

This might be a good time for me to add that no one’s taking my guns either. Period. And if Dianne Feinstein orders me from her lofty perch on the left-coast to retroactively register them with some federal autocracy, I think I might just forget I even have them. Tens of millions of law-abiding, God-fearing Americans just like me and Dad, I suspect, feel the same way.

I love guns. Grew up with ‘em. As a former police officer with 12 years in the U.S. military, I know how to use them, too – use them well. I plan to buy more – a bunch more. In fact, who’s to say I don’t already have a veritable arsenal?

Point is, it ain’t Big Brother Barack’s nor any other candy-keistered-liberal-cream-puff’s bloody business whether I do or not.

See, the left’s totalitarian brand of “gun control” has nothing to do with controlling guns – or bad guys. Rather, it has everything to do with controlling – disarming – the law-abiding masses. It’s not about protecting the innocents. It’s about rendering the innocents defenseless.

Clichés become clichés for a reason, and the old cliché “If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns” rings as true today as it did whenever it was that some homespun fellow coined it.

I was disgusted – physically sickened, in fact – when Barack Obama, president of these Divided States of America, shamelessly exploited the Sandy Hook memorial service to lay the groundwork for his unconstitutional gun-confiscation scheme. It was slimy to the extreme.

I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. That’s what liberals do. Every time some evil nutjob – pumped full of psychotropic drugs by NEA members who don’t want to deal with them – shoots up the place, the left’s collective mouth begins to water.

“Now, finally, now!” they say, rubbing together soft hands that have never felt the surprising weight of a Sig Sauer 45. “This time we have the political momentum for sweeping gun control. This time the American people will roll over and let us trample the Second Amendment beneath jackbooted executive order or congressional fiat.”

“Let no good crisis go to waste,” right, Rahm?

Well, not so fast, cupcake. As the U.S. Constitution guarantees – and as the Supreme Court has repeatedly affirmed – “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

It ain’t “should not be infringed” or “shall finally be infringed once ‘progressives’ have assumed total dominance.”

No, “shall not” means shall not.

There’s only one way to take my guns, slick, and that’s through a constitutional amendment – an amendment that will never happen – ever. Try it any other way, and we have a problem.

And this whole “assault weapons ban” angle? Sensationalist propaganda. I prefer to call them “defense weapons.” Contrary to left-wing revisionist pabulum, the Second Amendment’s not about squirrel hunting.

Notice a trend here? What do Sandy Hook Elementary, Aurora Colorado’s Century 16 theatre, and Columbine have in common? They’re all “gun free zones.”

Places you don’t see mass murder and mayhem? Well, there’s a reason bad guys largely avoid shooting up gun shows, ranges, households with signs that say “This home insured by Smith & Wesson”, and Texas in general. It’s because they know – even while thick-skulled liberals don’t – that, as recently noted by the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

Oh, that rather than “gun free zone,” Sandy Hook had a sign reading: “Staff heavily armed and trained. Any attempts to harm those herein will be met with deadly force.” Might some of those beautiful babies have still died if the P.E. coach and four MP5-bearing teachers had ended the bloodshed soon after it began? Perhaps. But how many precious lives could have been saved?

No, you won’t disarm me. You’re not going to neuter my household and tear away my ability to defend my wife and precious babies like Dad did all those years ago.

I really, really hope this president and his authoritarian cohorts in Congress will slow down, take a deep breath, and realize that right now, they’re playing a very dangerous game of chicken. If they try what I think they might, but hope they don’t, I fear this nation – already on the precipice of widespread civil unrest and economic disaster – might finally spiral into utter chaos, into a second civil war.

But then again, that may be exactly what they have in mind.

  1. Texas, Wyoming, Missouri and Montana have all declared that if the Feds try to get their guns, they will be arrested.

  2. See the Dick Act of 1902.

  3. We NEED a 10 MILLION man march on Washington with Guns loaded!!!!

    • Don't surrender your guns to Obama brothers. He will only supply his personal army Muslim Brotherhood to spread more fear, terror, horror, demonic killings and demonic things to the American people. He stole the election and I believe that in my heart. He has no comparison with Romney. I hope peoples especially politicians will perform the legal action to impeach him rather than just merely talk, talk, and talk.

      • Welll, this is NOT going to make you happy; but it will make sense to you.

    It is time for We, The People to oust the "illegal alien" from the United States Of America. Being a non-citizen of the USA, how is it, exactly, that he has become our POTUS? No, he was NOT born in Hawaii (Sheriff Joe, Maricopa County and Lieutenant Mike Zullo have proven that), nor is his father an American citizen–he is a Brittish Citizen of Kenya, the second factor which makes the "alien" ineligible to even 'run for' POTUS or live in the USA!!! How is it that the "Bummer" was never vetted? Not finally, but to end this e-mail, the third aspect to the "illegal's" NOT BEING ELIGIBLE TO EVEN BE IN THE USA–much less become POTUS, he has no LEGAL Social Security Number, or legal standing to be an American. You lose, "illegal alien," We, The People are "on" to you, and soon you will be eliminated from the United States Of America.

  8. Bruce Sparks says:

    If we want to maintain our freedom as guarented by our constitutional rights we must stand up an fight . Obama will do anything honest or dishonest to accomplish his unconstitutional goals. On more than one ocassion he has violated the constitution . If we do not act now and make it clear that we will not tolerate any polotician infringing upon our rites as free Americans . If we let them get away with this whats next ?

  9. Ed Schultz says:

    remember the old saying give them enough rope and they will hang themselves. Obama will.

  10. """""""All this""""""" and trillions of dollars later in there pockets, and crime will go up and we will not be any safer!!! Statisticly speaking, crime will increase ! And how about the """""""Best""""""" solution ? Return GOD and prayer . I still find it very hard to understand why following GOD's will, which is against all crime of all kinds is not acceptable in society. Whether you believe in GOD or not .

  11. P.S. The only ones that will be safer will be the government. The ones that want tyranny.

  12. This is exactly what they have in mind and are hoping for, Then the dictator can declare martial law and bring his heavy handed thugs in to shoot us down in cold blood call us all terrorist and become the ruler of the world. That's why they just bought enough bullets to carry on a full blown war for 25yrs, Hollow points those are for you and me baby. Cant use them in a war created by the Geneva convention
