Learning From History: What the Versailles Treaty Teaches Us About Gun Control

What The Versailles Treaty Teaches Us About Gun Control

There are so many good lessons history can teach us if we would only stop and heed them!

The summary paragraph bears repeating:

“In other words, vindictiveness and enforced disarmament failed. It failed because demonizing an entire group of people when the responsibility is much more complex creates resentments that fester. It failed because people who are determined to be armed will find a way. And it failed because it neglected to address the factors that motivated the second round of conflict in Europe. Advocates of gun control would do well to learn this lesson.”

Stay Alert, Armed and Dangerous!

 

Farnam Quips: Who “Takes Care” of Me?

 

 

Who takes care of whom?

“We will take care of you!

You’re too stupid to take care of yourself.

So, we’ll make sure you can’t take care of yourself.

And by the way, we really can’t take care of you, nor do we care.

But, we still know what’s best, and we’ll force you to love it,

… even when it kills you!”

Definition of “Enforced Dependency,” sometimes called “Learned Helplessness”

European prisons, and now American prisons, are infiltrated with gangs of Islamic jihadists, who have “taken over” many.

They involuntarily “recruit” new “converts to Islam.” Many of these “recent converts” then become active terrorists when released. The rest become supporters/promoters of Islamic jihad.

“Jihad” translates to “violent evangelism.”

In order to successfully resist such violence, individual citizens must be self-reliant, alert, aware, and well armed/trained.

But, leftists (in and out of government) tell us the exact opposite!

They assure us that they will “take care of us,” if only they are granted the absolute power and budget to do so.

According to them, we don’t need guns. In fact, we don’t need to worry our little heads about anything!

They will take-over our lives, because they know what is best!

What concerns so many (who are reluctant to drink their Kool-Aid) is:

1) If we don’t “need” guns, why do they think they do?

2) Why are they so adamant that free citizens always be unarmed, helpless, defenseless, and paralytic?

3) Why must we unquestioningly accept dependency and impotence as a way of life?

4) Why do they insist our rights as citizens are “relative,” while their powers are unlimited?

5) If we can trust them to “protect” us from every bad thing that might ever happen, why do they keep getting “surprised” by events?

6) If Islamic jihad and other violent criminal activity are “exaggerated,” why does our homicide rate keep going up?

Leftists have no answer to the foregoing, and never have, but they vainly persist with their defective philosophy, and do everything they can (when their delusory sales effort falls short) to involuntarily inflict it on the rest of us!

Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin.

And, how do you tell an anti-Communist?

It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin!”    -Ronald Reagan

When Just Owning a Gun Makes You “Crazy”

Implications of “mental-health purges” aka: gun violence restraining orders from a friend in a position to know:

“In the former Soviet Union, this was commonly known among the general population as ‘going crazy.’

Many a Russian thus suddenly ‘went crazy,’ was then visited by the KGB, and subsequently disappeared for prolonged periods.

Most were never seen again!

The State alone (KGB) decided who was ‘crazy,’ and who wasn’t, and there was no such thing as an appeal process, nor a ‘second opinion!’

After you were imprisoned, interrogated, tortured, starved, drugged, and neglected (sometimes for years), you might be returned to your family (assuming you had been broken sufficiently by their methods), when you managed to live through it.

As noted, most didn’t!

What liberal snowflakes in our generation don’t realize is that the exact same anti-gun laws they are currently promoting will be expanded and applied here, just as they were there.

After all law-abiding gun-owners have been eliminated, no leftist government has ever retained their ‘useful idiots’ after their ‘usefulness’ has been exhausted.

The only solace is in knowing that liberal morons will ultimately suffer the same fate as the law-abiding and brave.

No, you say? This law is only about taking the guns away from crazy people.

And yet, ‘crazy people’ with rental trucks, kitchen knives, fuel cans, screwdrivers, or even sharpened pencils are also dangerous, because they can easily murder ‘one person’ with their improvised weapons.

And, since these laws are about saving ‘just one person,’ we need to utilize it to its full effect and eliminate ‘crazy people’ from society, because they represent a threat, even without guns.

Don’t believe this?

The ‘Concluding Solution to The Jewish Question’ wasn’t the first law put into effect, but it was the ‘Final Answer,’ if you recall!”

Comment:

With this on the horizon, there is all the more reason U.S. gun owners need to reinforce our practice of minimizing the number of people who know we have guns and are always armed. All this needs to be a carefully-guarded secret.

And, we need to be very careful about what we say, and to whom!

We’ve all crossed paths with enough disgruntled acquaintances, sometimes including family members, who might seek to harm us by going to some judge and insisting that we’re “crazy.”

RKBA News: Gun Used in Paris Attacks Came From “Fast and Furious” Debacle

I find it HILARIOUS that obamaoids have been jumping up and down throwing tantrums over wanting to impose another Assault Weapons Ban and yet one of the guns used in the Paris Attacks (An AK Assault Rifle) was put into circulation by the ATF in the Fast and Furious goat rodeo debacle. Going a bit further with this, how about the recent story about CIA Weapons meant for “American Backed Syrian Rebels” (All 100 of them) ending up on the Jordanian Black Market (ie in Jihadist Hands) coincidence? Well if you follow the letter of the law here, it takes 2 people to be involved in the planning of a crime to have a “Conspiracy”, here we have two clear cut examples of MASSIVE Govt. involvement in illegal arms dealing. I think the burden of proof has been met to at minimum file Conspiracy charges, against the US Government, namely the Obama White House and the ATF for aiding and abetting Terrorist Activities. More to Come on this I am sure. -SF

AK

One of the guns used in the November 13, 2015 Paris terrorist attacks came from Phoenix, Arizona where the Obama administration allowed criminals to buy thousands of weapons illegally in a deadly and futile “gun-walking”operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

A Report of Investigation (ROI) filed by a case agent in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tracked the gun used in the Paris attacks to a Phoenix gun owner who sold it illegally,“off book,” Judicial Watch’s law enforcement sources confirm.

Federal agents tracing the firearm also found the Phoenix gun owner to be in possession of an unregistered fully automatic weapon, according to law enforcement officials with firsthand knowledge of the investigation.

The investigative follow up of the Paris weapon consisted of tracking a paper trail using a 4473 form, which documents a gun’s ownership history by, among other things, using serial numbers.

The Phoenix gun owner that the weapon was traced back to was found to have at least two federal firearms violations—for selling one weapon illegally and possessing an unregistered automatic—but no enforcement or prosecutorial action was taken against the individual.

Instead, ATF leaders went out of their way to keep the information under the radar and ensure that the gun owner’s identity was “kept quiet,” according to law enforcement sources involved with the case.

“Agents were told, in the process of taking the fully auto, not to anger the seller to prevent him from going public,” a veteran law enforcement official told Judicial Watch.

It’s not clear if the agency, which is responsible for cracking down on the illegal use and trafficking of firearms, did this because the individual was involved in the Fast and Furious gun-running scheme. An ATF spokesman, Corey Ray, at the agency’s Washington D.C. headquarters told Judicial Watch that “no firearms used in the Paris attacks have been traced” by the agency. When asked about the ROI report linking the weapon used in Paris to Phoenix, Ray said “I’m not familiar with the report you’re referencing.” Judicial Watch also tried contacting the Phoenix ATF office, but multiple calls were not returned.

The ATF ran the Fast and Furious experiment and actually allowed criminals, “straw purchasers,” working for Mexican drug cartels to buy weapons at federally licensed firearms dealers in Phoenix and allowed the guns to be “walked”—possessed without any knowledge of their whereabouts.

The government lost track of most of the weapons and many have been used to murder hundreds of innocent people as well as a U.S. Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry, in Arizona. A mainstream newspaper reported that a Muslim terrorist who planned to murder attendees of a Muhammad cartoon contest in Garland, Texas last year bought a 9-millimeter pistol at a Phoenix gun shop that participated in the ATF’s Fast and Furious program despite drug and assault charges that should have raised red flags.

Judicial Watch has thoroughly investigated Fast and Furious and has sued the Obama administration for information about the once-secret operation.
