Disarmament is the necessary precursor to tyranny
Noted conservative scholar, syndicated columnist and economist Dr. Walter E. Williams states that most Americans misunderstand the point of the Second Amendment. The purpose, says Williams, is to protect ourselves against domestic tyranny of our own government — not simply to allow for deer and duck hunting.
“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
— Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776
The facts are clear — the forces of tyranny are running wild across our once great Republic. And across the nation responses have been swift:
N.Y. State Sen. Greg Ball, a proud Conservative, addresses Democrat N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s gun grab, the fiery centerpiece of his State of the State speech — as an effort to advance extremist Cuomo’s presidential aspirations. The restrictive bans provide him another liberal constituency in his shadow 2016 campaign on the heels of passage of a bill to legalize same-sex marriage.
Cuomo was in such a rush to get the gun bill which he called “The Toughest Assault Weapon Ban in the Nation, Period!” — before him for signature, that numerous mistakes were made that will require legislative corrections to his showboating. One problem? Police agencies were not exempted from the restrictions on bullets.
In Oregon, Linn County Sheriff Tim Mueller, has written a letter to Vice President Joe Biden saying his department will not enforce any new gun laws it considers unconstitutional.
“We’re restricted and prohibited from enforcing all types of federal laws, including immigration laws,” Sheriff Mueller said. “It would be unreasonable for anyone to think that I would enforce a federal firearms law.” (Click letter to enlarge.)
