This is a discussion on Dear Mr. Security within the Gun Rights forums, part of the Gun Forum category; Dear Mr. Security Agent
Excellent article on the ramifications of a national gun ban by Matthew Bracken who wrote "Enemies Foreign and Domestic"
Federal, state, or local. You, the man or woman with the badge, the sworn LEO or FLEA and those who inhabit the many law enforcement niches in between and on all sides. This essay is directed to you, because in the end, how this turmoil about gun control turns out will depend largely upon your decisions and actions over the coming months and years.
We have seen this play out before in other countries and times, and it is deadly serious. Once the scapegoating gets far enough under way, it can pick up a life and a momentum of its own. For example, if the economy ever truly crashes, and the EBT system that feeds fifty million Americans goes down hard, leading to hunger, looting, and riots, (or we suffer other unforeseen problems of similar crisis proportions), the scapegoats will always be dragged to the forefront as the pre-designated patsy, to deflect blame from the government.
ďItís the traitorous Armenians! Itís the greedy Kulaks! Itís the filthy Jews! Itís the oppressive Rwandan Hutus! Itís the white-racist rednecks! Letís go get them, and make them pay!Ē
For those who think it can not happen here ask the Japanese about WWII internment camps. Or look up the Trail of Tears. Bonus Army. We have a proud history but we do have our pimples.
I was happy to read the commentary by M Bracken. I'd just been wondering, why haven't the socio-political-pro-gun writers been making any noise lately? Specifically; Bracken, John Ross and Ken Royce ("Boston T"). I've gone to all their web sites, but have seen no recent updates. Hope to hear something from the other two sooner rather than later.
I Have lots of LEO friends. Not sure many of them will recognize the "orders" for what they are when they come out.
What happens when an LEO find a warrant for arrest on a traffic sweep? The warrant seems like every other one they have served. BUT what they won't be able to know is that the warrant is as legit as obuma's birth certificate..............
So if the roundup is covert how will LEO's have the opportunity to make these decisions.??
The left is a bunch of idiots, but far from obvious of their agenda. They speak in double tongue. How will the street cop be able to tell the difference between a fabricated warrant and a legit one?
And don't respond with "Just let them arrest you and trust our due process" cause if THAT is your frame of thought don't even want to talk to you.....
I have known Matt Bracken casually over the web, as an author he has written novels that have nearly predicted how America is evolving, plus he has started a new fictional series of a white knight similar to Travis McGee of the historic John D McDonald series.
Enemies, Foreign and Domestic, get it if you have not done so, and the two following novels, available from Amazon and Kindle.
