World Net Daily has commissioned a poll of gun owners, and reported the following lie:
A new poll indicates only 1 in 5 gun owners would be willing to give up their firearms if the government demanded it.
“In other words, the government has a huge fight on its hands if it tries to implement a gun confiscation program,” said pollster Fritz Wenzel of Wenzel Strategies.
A surprisingly high percentage of those who call themselves “very liberal” also would not allow their guns to be confiscated, the poll shows.
There is a reason no laws proposing outright confiscation have seriously been considered. It’s the same reason that Harry Reid pushed Dianne Feinstein’s semi-auto-ban off the table (simultaneously making it more dangerous). At this exact moment, confiscation is a non-starter as a political action.
“Common sense” background checks are being pushed instead, as they will become a de facto registry, then a real registry in reality, if not by official action.
Then, when that is in place, our culture is sufficiently demonized by the media and the right political timing is achieved, there will be a steady whittling down of “assault rifles” (you don’t need those), handguns with more than X rounds (you don’t need those), “sniper rifles” (deer rifles, but you don’t need those), assault shotguns (more than 3 rounds, you don’t need those), and then… lie back and think of England, because it’s all gone now.
The vast majority of the 80-percent in this WND poll say they won’t comply now, but we’re not playing a time-constrained game, and most will give up their rights without a fight.
Many will fold and turn in their firearms after rationalizing their position in a serfdom is better than having to fight. Many more will hide them away in closets, bury them, or otherwise surrender using them.
At the exact moment that their should be brought out in force to exercise the right of revolution given to them by God, these big talkers will meekly stand aside.
Your would-be masters are betting that after decades of indoctrination, you’ll suffer in silence, let your arms rust shut, allow your ammo to corrode, fail to maintain your skill… and just like that, without a shot fired on offense, they’ve won.
Aren’t they already successful?
When was the last time you went to the range, invited a friend to go shooting, or felt comfortable speaking about firearms in public without wondering if you were turning yourself into a social pariah?
They don’t need to get into your gun safe if they’ve gotten into your head.
They can only win by your apathy and inaction. Learn to shoot well, master your rifle to 500 yards. Practice dry firing, read up on marksmanship, small unit tactics, our heritage, and what was sacrificed for us by our Founders, and resolve to be every bit as active now so that you aren’t required to make the same sacrifices of blood and treasure.
Agitate. Politic. Get involved.
Be proud. Be relentless.
They are counting on your doing nothing.
