Would New Gun Laws Spark
Widespread Civil Disobedience?

PJ Media, by Paul Hsieh

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/17/2013 4:50:23 AM

In his State of the Union address, President Obama doubled down on his gun-control proposals, again demanding that Congress ban so-called “assault weapons” and “high capacity magazines.” This is not a surprise. What has been a surprise are the increasingly open calls for defiance from gun owners, state legislatures, and local law enforcement. If the president’s proposals become law, he may move the country into turbulent waters we haven’t seen in many years. Gun control has long been a controversial issue in American politics. However, there are three aspects to this issue that make this more volatile

No, not riots in the streets, but I can foresee home closets continuing to hold firearms from the banned list.

Several small gun manufacturers have announced that they will no longer sell to local, state, or federal goobermints who are hostile to the Second Amendment. Their reasoning is that if their anti-gun laws don´t apply to citizens, then it doesn´t apply to goobermints either. So far the following 3 have not joined these manufacturers:
1) GLOCK: 770-432-1202
2) SIG SAUER: 603-772-2302
e-mail: publicsafetysales@sigsauer.com
3) SMITH & WESSON: 1-800-331-0852
e-mail: qa@smith-wesson.com
4) REMINGTON ARMS: 800-243-9700
e-mail: info@Remington.com

Contract them and tell them to join the other manufacturers. Nothing else will wise up these perfumed twits in goobermints.

The Left´s strategy in the US for 100 years has been: step by small step, inch by inch, drip by drip by tiny drip - until the power, the independence and the will of the people is so diminished that resistance to Socialism is either null or containable (by force if necessary). How Obama intends to continue this stealth takeover is what we´ll be witnessing the next few years.

Liberal states are already passing laws right and left without even thinking about the consequences,like NY.Who´s even going to know what laws apply,the states or the feds?

The people being targeted with these laws have no track record at all of being mass shooters,it´s leftist loons that go off.

This is just par for the course,that people on the right in this country get punished for the sins of the left.

We also need to be both vigilant and politically active at all stealth methods intended to restrict our lawful access to guns. In particular, people need to watch out for the following.

1) Restrictions on ammunition caused by regulation or unjustified mega-purchases by government agencies.

2) Stealth registration and taxation by means of insurance and healthcare regulations. This clever little scheme is already being attempted in some places. Resist.

Mrs. Metalman and I have a couple local gun shops we like to visit from time to time. Last weekend we stopped into tiny Bullet Hole in Holland, Michigan and it was standing room only. We had to work our way sideways through the crowd to get to the nearly empty ammo shelves. Yesterday we stopped into Silver Bullet in Grand Rapids. We had a hard time finding a place to park. Inside, 8 - 10 deep at the pistol counter and they were serving by "take a number". The range had a line also of perhaps 12 - 15 people.

The moral to the story is --- BRING IT ON!

Like I´ve said before, back in military flight school, the instructors told us "not to tease the animals" (the aircraft and its capabilities). It was really a "common sense" approach to dealing with a machine that could be dangerous and harmful if tinkered with too much.

The same thing might be said to our meddling and albatross government, don´t tease the animals (metaphorically speaking), that is We the People. Don´t tread on our Second Amendment rights with this deceptive gun control power play...it will most likely get very ugly.

Let us not forget that the American Revolutionary War was caused by a lot of issues such as taxation without representation, however the real shooting didn´t start until King George III and the British Army went for the Patriot´s guns...why do you think that there is a Second Amendment?

I don´t own an ´assault weapon´ of any kind. My handguns, shotguns, AR have never been, and will never be, an Assault weapon. Neither are my hands, my hammer , chainsaw or anything I own.

´Widespread civil disobedience´ is probably a goal for this administration. Look at it as the wedge Obama will use to expand both government - and likely attempt (should it occur) to use it to ´overturn´ any ´term limit´, as he insists he needs to maintain control to keep Americans safe...

Humorously - in all of the talk about ´keeping weapons out of the hands of the mentally ill´, there´s been damn little discussion about keeping the office of president out of the same mental defectives grasp. We´re dealing with an example of that failing now.

We have to watch exactly who gets to define ‘serious mental illness.’ A whole bunch of liberals would classify ‘serious mental illness’ as ‘those who own assault rifles and ‘weapons of war.’

And some would do well to get off the mental illness thing. Our sainted government, under the auspices of democrat liberals, decided years ago that retaining those of limited mental capacity to facilities where they could be cared for was cruel and was depriving them of their right to live a free life. Hence they closed the care facilities and dumped these unfortunate people out to live under overpasses and such.

Since there cannot be a yes/no form to be filled out that declares one ‘mentally ill,’ it becomes a subjective opinion. The result is that it is difficult to get anyone declared ‘mentally ill’ until they do something extreme. And the initial responsibility for raising the question rests on a parent or loved one.

The blame for this situation rests squarely on the shoulders of the ‘feel good’ liberals of yesteryear. And who complains about the situation today…..the feel-good liberals!
And, best of all, some blame the NRA!

A decade ago the liberals always talked about banning firearms that they referred to as being "Assault Rifles".

Currently the liberals have moved on and have come up with another more encompassing term, "Assault Weapons" that they define as being any semi-automatic handgun, rifle, or shotgun that can possibly accept a clip or magazine containing more then 10 rounds of ammunition. The liberals specifically name a lot of firearms that they consider to be "Assault Weapons" and then include a lot more firearms by usually using a cosmetic facet of the firearm, like a hand grip to claim that firearm is also an "Assault Weapon". It does not bother the liberals one bit that their definition of the "Assault Weapons" they want to ban covers just about all modern firearms that are manufactured and sold in America today.

A big target of the liberals is the US small arms and relating industries that are mostly thought to be conservative oriented businesses. The liberals know that if they get all the firearms that they define as "Assault Weapons" banned, that they will also be putting the US small arms and related industries out of business, as those industries cannot survive by bidding on the diminishing number of military contracts alone. If those industries were to fold, tens of thousands or well paying American jobs would also go, along with all the technical know how that those jobs encompass.

There is already widespread disobedience to and utter contempt for the law.

But that disobedience and contempt are the acts of the government, not the citizens.

WEST, Texas—Block by block, schools, homes and businesses are steadily being pieced back together here, a year after a blast at a fertilizer depot laid waste to much of the town. But the mental wounds suffered by residents are proving much harder to heal.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
