A Thought About Gun Control
I just watched this video and it is VERY thought provoking. I DO NOT OWN A GUN, but after watching this, it has me thinking about it.
This country had no gun control laws for 150 years. WHY did that change? As a Constitutional scholar, Publius Huldah (the speaker on this video) gives one of the most focused explanations I have seen.
I have been "curious" of the fact that Homeland Security has been arming itself now for months. We are talking about BILLIONS of rounds of ammo and THOUSANDS of armed vehicles. Laws are systematically being passed that places state highway patrols and county sheriff departments under the control of Homeland Security.
Here is a Forbes article that questions the accumulation of weaponry by Homeland Security: http://onforb.es/YJr6Z6
You might also want to do a search about the 7000 PDWs (personal defense weapons) that the DHS bought. Their solicitation order describes the weapon as THE best weapon for personal defense, but Congress is calling it an assault weapon and trying to prevent citizens from buying it for their personal defense.
The Department of Homeland Security - Our Greatest Threat?
Homeland Security is becoming better armed and more powerful than our National Guard. Congress has control of our military, with Obama as its Commander-in-Chief. Congress CAN replace the commander if needed. However, Obama has total authority over Homeland Security.
Not that this could EVER happen in America, but "IF" someone was going to try to take full control of a people, what would be needed?
- An economic or political disaster,
- Control of the media,
- Strong financial backing from powerful people,
- Perceived favor with the people, and
- A military force under their authority.
That is exactly the way governments have been taken over throughout history. (Hitler, for example. Hitler was VOTED into office by the people of Germany.)
I, like most people, do not want to even think that something like that could happen in America. But IF it "could" happen, we REALLY need to think about this push by government for us to give up our ability to defend ourselves.
