De facto gun control
How would a tyrannical leader of the United States impose strict new gun control on a resistant, well-armed citizenry without the approval of Congress and in spite of the constitutional prohibitions?
Iíll tell you how.
He would have the government buy up all the arms and ammo Ė leaving next-to nothing for local police departments and self-reliant citizens to fight over.
That is, quite possibly, part of the motivation for the Department of Homeland Securityís sudden, otherwise inexplicable buying binge for firearms Barack Obama would like to deny mere citizens and almost unimaginable quantities of ammunition that has left police departments so short of rounds they have been forced to stop target practice and rationed supplies of the most popular kinds of bullets.
If you doubt me, just go to your favorite local dealer of arms and ammunition and see whatís available. Everywhere you look you will be limited to a few boxes of the ammo of your choice.
Yes, itís true the public has been on a buying binge, too. That was precipitated by Obamaís threats to ban broad new classifications of firearms and ammunition.
But now, on top of that, we learn that Homeland Security is buying billions of rounds of the very choicest ammunition.
What good are guns without ammo?
One of the things DHS could be doing is enacting de facto gun control.
Itís a way for the government to achieve a monopoly on force Ė something Americaís founders feared and thought they put to rest when they approved the Bill of Rights, declaring self-defense to be one of the unalienable, God-endowed liberties of free men and women.
If Iím right, keep your eye out for more of these bulk purchases by government. Ammunition manufacturers canít keep up with the demand Ė much of it stimulated with your own taxpayer dollars.
Not only is Obama intent on taking more of your money, heís using it to deny you your right to self-defense and quelling any risk of armed resistance to his fast and furious gun grab.
Continued: De facto gun control
Black Blade: This is what I have always thought. The whole point of the DHS and other government agencies buying up billions of rounds is to tie ip ammunition manufacturing. There is no other conclusion possible with the exception of a complete takeover of The United States of America by force by the Obamunists. That is when you can slaugher every man, woman and child in this country several times over then it makes sense that this is about gun control or taking over the government from the people. Either way it's a very bad for all Americans.
