When it comes to our God-given, constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms, the American people aren’t messing around, and the criminal, communist administration in Washington knows it. Maybe that’s why non-Defense Department federal agencies have been planning ahead, snapping up billions of bullets, as well as thousands of guns, without explaining why they would need this amount of firepower here in our own country, other than to say it’s for “training purposes.” Many rounds are reportedly hollow points. Why would you use the more expensive hollow point bullets for “training purposes”? I’ll have more on that in a few moments.
This Saturday, February 23rd, has been declared the Day of Resistance. We need resistance every day, but this is a good start. From the Day of Resistance website is this message:
On January 16, 2013, President Barack Obama issued 23 executive actions against your 2nd amendment Constitutional right to bear arms. He did this without the consent of Congress which in itself violates the foundation of the Constitution and the co-equal branches of government.
In response to these unconstitutional actions by the President, on .223, February 23, 2013 the American people will stand together in defiance to protect the right that protects ALL of our rights, the 2nd Amendment! They will organize locally so that they may band together neighbor to neighbor and reassert their community’s right to determine their own destiny!
While we have seen some encouraging state-level legislation proposals to combat the lawless Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) and his criminal executive orders on gun control, we have also seen Democrat leaders in Missouri propose outrageous gun control legislation that would outlaw certain so-called “assault weapons”—a nebulous term which is broadly defined to include many types of semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and handguns—along with large-capacity magazines. Large-capacity is defined as holding more than ten rounds. This is a hideously unconstitutional gun grab which, if passed, will instantly turn many law-abiding Missouri residents into criminals if they refuse to surrender their weapons and magazines.
What part of “…the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” do these junior tyrants in Missouri and Washington D.C. not understand? The problem is not that they don’t understand the plain wording of the Second Amendment; it’s that they no longer choose to be bound by it. After all, who will oppose them? Who will stop them? The Republicans? Yeah, right.
With the incomprehensible installation of Obama into an ungodly second term in our presidency, this lawless administration has become brazenly tyrannical. This is only the beginning of the outrages to come (in addition to the numerous crimes of the past four years).
So, what are we to do? Christians, Conservatives, TEA Partiers and other liberty lovers are gathering all across the nation this Saturday to declare that we will not be disarmed! This is the start of our civil disobedience. Hopefully many more states and local sheriffs will step up to thwart the unconstitutional federal attempts at a massive un-American gun grab, but where they don’t, the people themselves must stand against this illegal move.
This is certainly a scary prospect, because none of us want to be at odds with our own federal government. We don’t want to be forced to make ourselves “criminals” after we have lived our lives lawfully as good citizens. But where do we finally draw the line after so much lawlessness has already emanated from this diabolical commie in the White House and his fellow travelers in the administration and Congress?
When we are up against lawless tyranny, we must stand against it. We now have no choice. Our country is flying away from us at the hands of enemy invaders. Those of us who have learned world history know that dictatorships always disarm the people. Is that because tyrants throughout history oppose hunting? Of course not! It is because they know that an armed population is not easily conquered.
Returning to the question of why non-Defense Department federal agencies are snapping up billions of bullets, there is another deeply disturbing, even terrifying, possibility, and it’s an even bigger reason to not only resist being disarmed, but to stock up on guns and ammo even more. National talk radio host Mark Levin recently mentioned it. As reported on Sunday by Drew Zahn at WorldNetDaily:
Federal, non-military agencies, noted radio host Mark Levin last week, have purchased enough ammunition recently to not only shoot every American five times, but also engage in a prolonged, domestic war.
The numbers are based on recent reports that put the total federal ammunition buy in the last 10 months at approaching two billion rounds.
… What do federal agencies need with all that ammunition?
… “I’m going to tell you what I think is going on,” Levin offered. “I don’t think domestic insurrection. Law enforcement and national security agencies, they play out multiple scenarios. … I’ll tell you what I think they’re simulating: the collapse of our financial system, the collapse of our society and the potential for widespread violence, looting, killing in the streets, because that’s what happens when an economy collapses.
“I suspect that just in case our fiscal situation, our monetary situation, collapses, and following it the civil society collapses, that is the rule of law, they want to be prepared,” Levin said. “I know why the government’s arming up: It’s not because there’s going to be an insurrection; it’s because our society is unraveling.”
We know that the reckless spending and borrowing by our federal government cannot continue indefinitely without terrible consequences. We have not yet seen hyperinflation. We have not yet seen the collapse of the dollar. We have not yet seen our food and energy supply and distribution brought to a screeching halt. We cannot imagine the hell-on-earth that would ensue here in America in the event of such a collapse. With the potential for such nightmarish events unfolding in our future, there is absolutely no way the American people will allow ourselves to be disarmed—at least those of us who are awake won’t allow it.
So, what can we do but firmly stand against the lawless dictates of the criminal enemies of the United States who are embedded in local, state and federal governments? We must resist them, and we will.
At the same time, I don’t want to leave a tone of hopelessness in this message, because those of us who know the Lord have all the hope we can handle. Although we know from the warnings in God’s Word that these last days are going to be hellish beyond imagination, we also know that the victory is already the Lord’s; He won it at the cross. So, in the very end, we win.
Our true hope is in our salvation by God our Father through His Son, Jesus Christ, Who will one day return to put the royal smack-down of eternity on the enemies of God. Until then, we must pray for the strength to resist the evil, cling to the good, and keep our hearts pointing heavenward.
