THE HISTORY AND REAL PURPOSE OF GUN CONTROL
01-22-2013 12:47 am - John W. Wallace
Shortly after the end of the Civil War in the late 1860’s and early 1870’s, politicians in several of the former confederate states in the south passed legislation banning the possession of firearms by the newly freed black citizens in their respective states. The original “No Guns for Negroes” laws in these southern states were designed to keep the former black slaves in their place and under control, to prevent them from taking any retribution against their former slave owners and to figuratively keep the black people on the plantations.

Many of these anti-gun laws directed at black citizens remained on the books well into the mid-20th century and these same type of restrictive laws ultimately became the basis for gun control legislation that has spread like a cancer to most of the so-called liberal, progressive states and cities throughout the country.

In America today, most law-abiding American citizens who happen to live in any liberal, progressive urban area of this country, are being denied their constitutional right to defend themselves with a gun. The people living in these areas, from all races and ethnic backgrounds, men and women, gay and straight, have been subjected to gun control restrictions passed by local “progressive” administrations over many years that are specifically designed to keep them under control on the new 21st century urban plantations, without the rights that citizens in other parts of the country currently enjoy.

We have only to look to Chicago, Illinois, a showplace of the 21st century liberal, progressive plantation, to see the effects of the most restrictive gun control legislation in the country that has completely disarmed the law abiding citizens in that city. Mayor Ron Emanuel (D), a gun control activist, likes to compare his city to other so-called world class ‘Alpha cities.’ Well, let us see how Chicago does compare. Chicago has the highest murder rate of any Alpha City in the world, yes – in the world (19.4 per 100,000) -- higher even than the Third World cities of Mexico City (8.0), Sao Paolo, Brazil (15.6) and Moscow (9.6). Apparently, strict gun control does not work in Chicago.

If Chicago isn’t proof enough that gun-control legislation does not work, maybe those pushing for stricter gun control laws can learn a little from history.

In 1929, the communist Soviet Union established gun control and from 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up under the leadership of Joseph Stalin and exterminated by their own government.

In 1935, China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated by their own communist government, under Mao Tse-Tung.

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, under the leadership of communist Pol Pot, one million 'educated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated by their own government.

In 1938, the National Socialist (Nazi) government of Germany under Adolph Hitler enacted the nationwide German Weapons Act that replaced the Law on Firearms and Ammunition of 1928. The Nazis had inherited “registration lists” of firearm owners and their firearms when they 'lawfully' took over in March 1933 and used these lists in 1938 to seize the privately held firearms from persons who were “not reliable" like the Jews and other enemies of the government.

Nazi’s are often portrayed by the left in America as being on the extreme right, when in fact, the real name of the Nazi Party was the National Socialist Party. They were the extreme liberal “Progressives” of their time in Germany.

When they finally took power, the Nazi's passed laws to eventually restrict gun ownership to only Nazi party members and other "reliable" people. From 1939 to 1945, a total of 6 million Jews and 7 million other people, mostly Christians, who were unable to defend themselves because they had no guns, were rounded up and exterminated by the left-wing National Socialist government (Nazis).

Justifying the confiscation of firearms from the “unreliable people, Adolph Hitler, in his Edict (similar to an executive order of a U.S. President) of March 18, 1939, said:

"History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subjected peoples to carry arms have prepared their own fall."

American citizens in 2013 who happen to disagree with the implementation of expanding socialist programs in the USA or who resist attacks of their Second Amendment Rights, whether they are members of the so-called tea party, OathKeepers, or just plain citizens, are often called “right-wing extremists,” “Nazi’s” or “Facist’s” when in fact the Nazis and Facists were socialists and on the far left of the political spectrum, not the right.

In Italy, when the Facist movement was founded in 1919, most of its leaders, like Benito Mussolini, were Marxists and radical leftists who were followers of the revolutionary doctrines of a leftist revolutionary named George Sorel. The Facists called themselves ‘revolutionary nationalists’ and there was nothing conservative about them. After he took power, Mussolini also outlawed the possession of guns by the people and confiscated millions of weapons to insure that the people were powerless to resist his socialist government.

All in all, in the 20th century, a total of 56 million people were rounded up and exterminated by their communist-socialist governments because of gun control. Had they not been able to initially legally impose some strict gun-control on their people, these communist-socialist governments would not have been able to kill so many millions of their own people.

In 1968, the U.S. Congress passed the Gun Control Act of 1968 hat was later found to be based almost entirely, word for word, on the German Weapons Act of 1938. Apparently, then Senator Thomas J. Dodd (D-CT) had obtained a copy of the Nazi Weapons Law (in German) and had it translated into English by the Library of Congress in July of 1968, before submitting the bill in the Senate.

When it came to disarming those “non-reliable people” (Jews and others) in Germany, the Nazis had proven their skills. If Senator Dodd was looking for a model for disarming those “non-reliable people” in America, he found the German Weapons Law of 1938 as a good blueprint. Gun control has always been about "people control." It shouldn't be surprising that a totalitarian regime like the National Socialist regime of Adolph Hitler’s Germany could offer plenty of great suggestions on the subject to their fellow Socialists in America.

Progressive Politicians in America have been trying to take our guns away for over 100 years and nothing has changed as you can see from the following quotes from some of America’s socialists:

"Our task of creating a Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed." Sarah Brady, Chairman, Handgun Control Inc.[ Source: The National Educator, January 1994, Pg.3

“Waiting periods are only a step. Gun Registration is only a step. The prohibition of private firearms is the goal." Former Attorney General Janet Reno, 10 Dec 1993.

"What good does it do to ban just some guns. All guns should be banned." Senator Howard Metzanbaum (D-OH)

Senator Dianne Feinstein: "If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an out-right ban, picking up every one of them......., I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren't here." CBS-TV's "60 Minutes", February 5, 1995.

It’s easy to see that the modern progressive socialists in the United States are showing their true colors and they are now more aligned with ideals of the socialist dictators like Adolph Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Benito Mussolini, Mao Tse-Tung and Pol Pot, than they are with the American people.

Taking advantage of the horrendous slaughter of 20 innocent children and 6 of their teachers in Connecticut by a mentally unstable individual, being treated with mind-altering psychotropic drugs and who stole the weapons he used, is a prime example of using a crisis to advance their anti-gun, socialist agenda.

With hours of this tragic event, the president, New York’s Governor, progressive members of congress, mayors and governors, the millionaire socialist Hollywood elite, the national media and their fellow travelers were calling for stricter gun control legislation designed to strip law-abiding Americans of their unalienable rights to protect themselves, their family and their fellow Americans.

When it comes to protecting our most precious possessions, our children, the progressives in our congress (both Democrat and Republican) and in some state and local legislatures have failed miserably. They decided long ago that our children are better protected by a piece of paper and a sign (Guns Free Zone Law), than by allowing trained school employees to carry concealed weapons to protect the students.

And what is the solution from this group of elitists to protect our children after this most recent school attack on December of 2012? They want to issue another useless piece of paper (a new gun law), expand the ‘Gun Free Zones’ that the bad guys will always ignore and take guns away from law-abiding citizens who have broken no laws and are rarely involved in criminal shootings.

Isn't it ironic that all the elites in the media, Hollywood and in various level of government who are calling for stricter gun laws all have either armed private security guards and services available to them, or have armed government agents and police protecting them. Our Mayors are protected by people with guns; our Governors are protected by people with guns; members of the House, Senate and the President, are protected by a lot of people with guns; our judges, courts and government buildings are protected by people with guns as are the corporate CEO’s and the Billionaire socialists.

It’s not that the American socialists want to ban all guns in America. No, they just want to ban those guns owned by those that Adolph Hitler called the “not reliable people.” That means the average Americans like you and I. The President, the Governors, Senator Feinstein, Mayors Blumberg and Ron Emanuel, the Hollywood elite, corporate executives, and all high ranking government officials will still have their guns. Only the average American citizens will be disarmed and defenseless.

What do the socialists base their position on? Well, not the facts. That’s for sure.

In 2011, there were 12,664 murders in the United States. Rifles were used on only 323 of these murders. More people were murdered with knives, with blunt weapons like baseball bats and tire irons, or beaten to death with hands and feet, than were killed with rifles. Assault rifles are used so infrequently in homicides that many police departments almost never see them; in 2011, there were nine states that did not have a single murder committed with any rifle.

Why not ban baseball bats or tire irons because they kill more people than rifles? The facts or the truth does not matter to these socialists because their overall plan is to take all of our guns, just like Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Stalin and Pol Pot.

Infringing on the Second Amendment Constitutional rights of law-abiding American citizens is not the answer and these types of gun control solutions must be met with serious resistance by the American people. With guns, we are a 'free people'. Without guns, we will become nothing more than 'subjects and slaves'.

The Constitution of the United States does not give us any rights because we already had them – it just tells the government what rights they (the government) must protect.

The rights of American people, as enumerated in the Bill of Rights, including the right to bear arms, come from God and are unalienable. That means that they cannot be taken away by any government. Even if a person does not believe in God, he or she still has unalienable rights as a human being.

The Bill of Rights was included specifically to protect the citizens from the federal government. We live in a Republic and as such, it is the people who give the federal government its power, not the other way around, and it is the federal government that is supposed to protect our rights, not whittle away at our rights until we have none.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution states: “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.” What part of “shall not be infringed” do the political elite in America not understand?

This is not the first time a government tried to take our guns. Back in April 19, 1775, British Troops tried to take weapons from the Massachusetts militiamen and were met with armed resistance by the people. In the years that followed, our Founders made their individual decisions to stand together and take an oath to fight for Liberty and Freedom. They put their lives and fortunes on the line and declared their freedom and independence from the chains and shackles of servitude to the King of England.

In 2013, American Patriots must once again be willing to stand together and publicly declare our Freedom and Independence, not from the King of England or from some foreign power, but from the chains and shackles of servitude forged by our own federal government, some state governments and from those traitorous individuals and organizations, who pull the strings of the politicians and the media, like puppet masters from behind a curtain of secrecy, bribery and deception.

Taking away our guns will accomplish the ‘elites’ goal of eliminating our ability to resist their socialist takeover of America and the subsequent loss of all of our freedoms and individual Liberty.

Remember that at critical points in the history of this country, other generations of your fellow Americans have been given the honor and privilege of defending Liberty when it was in mortal danger. That honor and privilege now falls to us. We must not shrink from our responsibility and our sacred duty to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution, not only for the sake of ourselves, but for the sake of our children and our children’s children.

My fellow Americans, Liberty is again in mortal danger and we must not shrink from our sacred duty. This is our time to defend Liberty and to draw our line in the sand.

For all those active duty military and law enforcement personnel, I want to remind you that you are the last line of defense for your fellow Americans against the growing socialist tyranny of our own federal government. Should the time ever come when you find yourselves in the streets of cities or in the countryside facing your fellow American citizens who are simply exercising their God-given and Constitutional guaranteed rights to demand their Freedom and Liberty, I ask you to remember and honor your oath!

For all those military and police veterans I ask you to reaffirm your oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and pledge your life, your fortune, and your sacred honor in defense of the principles of liberty enumerated in our Declaration of Independence, for which our forefathers spilled their blood. We must not let the Republic fall without a fight.

Seek out Liberty organizations like the Oath Keepers, the Veteran Defenders of America, the John Birch Society and similar organizations. Get educated about the issues, but be prepared to hit the streets very, very soon.

Time is running out and the fight to defend our Liberty and our Second Amendment right to bear arms is upon us now. We must be prepared and ready to defend ourselves and our families against the criminals, the socialist politicians and the tyranny of our own federal government. The battle can no longer be postponed.

In order to be be successful, we must put aside those minor differences that may have separated us in the past and unite as one strong political force to restore our Freedoms and individual Liberty now. We must also actively recruit more freedom loving Americans into our ranks and grow our numbers by the millions.

The road ahead will not be easy and the traitorous enemies within our own country are very cunning, unscrupulous and have unlimited resources. But they are no match for an army of united and determined American citizens like us who are prepared to fight the hard battles that lie ahead, as our Founders did more than 200 years ago, and I have no doubt that the Free People of America will prevail.
