Gonna go ahead and post it again.
This is a good one.
Uncle Ted speaks out
Kudos to all three of these guys. I can't say enough good about Stossel, we really need a LOT more journalists like him. A guy willing to go out and actually dig up and report the truth, instead of reporting on his own emotional blither blather.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that if the king confiscates all of the swords and spears in the realm, EXCEPT his loyal Praetorean Guard, he's probably got a reason for it.
im sorry if this would be the improper place to put this question but i have to understand since i dont know much about it in the first place.
during the aftermath, after katrina, Louisiana police did in fact go door to door and confiscate firearms from their law abiding owners, with out warrant or probable cause, correct? kicked in doors and everything. this isnt opinion im tryin to see if i have the image correct in my mind.
with all the bolstering about "come and get them" and "from my cold dead hands", what happened there? why did nobody do anything when the one thing we fear actually happened?
again this isnt a confrontation or opinion, im just as angry about it as you are, im simply asking in a calmer way "what the F---!"
simply because something is done that's unlawful and someone is allowed to do it and get away with it doesn't make it lawful. the people simply allowed an agency to commit an illegal act and they got away with it. simply because many people don't understand their rights and freedoms.
if i showed up at your door and i have a badge and a peice of paper that says i need all your guns, even though it's not really legal for me to consficate them and you give them to me, is that legal or illegal? simply because i have a badge and some peice of paper! that's pretty much what happened because these people accepted the authority of those taking the guns as doing what was legal when it wasn't. they didn't question authority or the legalities of thsoe committing the crime of illegal consfication of guns.
oh i understand the gravity that was present, including people jostled by the incredible disaster that was there, but i just find it quite disturbing that that is all it would take. a badge and paper. im upset that no one, even just one, did not put up a fight. well im also thankful cause i dont want to see cops or people hurt but in such a situation, theres really only one side id root for in the end.
i wonder in such a situation with the closest communist state we have, Illinois, if they enacted a confiscation act, if that is how easy it would go down. without a disaster present.
im just glad i sold all my guns and i dont have anything firearms related.
a little old lady did .... until 6 LEO manhandled her in her own kitchen Hopefully the American people will not allow this to happen again. I know with the recent hurricane Irene here in VT whole towns were cut off from supplies for months ..... no such effort to confiscate guns or evacuate neighborhoods was attempted
It is my sincere hope that all of the bad press surrounding Katrina will cause most, or all future soldiers and guardsmen to refuse to obey such orders, even if the politicians have the testicular fortitude to issue them.
These people who had their guns confiscated simply did not want to die, therefore they did not challenge the Police. You know that killing a Police Officer will not stop the invasion and the people felt that they had a reason to continue living.
Hard choices are in our future. If everyone would rise at once, a difference could be made, but you know that people will not do that. Americans are as soft as a babies behind because we were raised to be that way.
Prepare, as each individual will be tested within the next year. Know yourself and establish boundaries for yourself and your family. Know far in advance what you will and will not accept from authority figures and how best to address the problem.
Hell, the American people should have already spent great amounts of time demonstrating on the streets of Washington D. C. How many times have you traveled to D.C. to voice your outrage? As for me, I've only been once and should have been there hundreds of times. How many of you have never voiced your opinion against government policies by calling your Representative or Senator to express your personal views?
www.popvox.com gives all Americans an easy method for voicing their opinions, yet when I voice my opinion through the medium, I find that less than 500 people have exercised their their rights of regress on pending and active legislation. We want to believe that we are a free people yet we act as mindless Sheep allowing the government to stuff legislation down our throats.
The reason we are here is because we the people failed to get involved. We were too busy watching American Idol or some other mind numbing TV show? Yes, you may be one of the few who did have regress with your elected officials, but it is the Nation as a whole that did not rise in objection. We left our elected officials open to do their own bidding and they discovered that they like POWER and now they want more. To stop something, it will take 'an equal and opposite force'. Where do you stand on that requirement??
Think about it and pray on it, the next move is yours.
