I keep a copy of the constitution right on the counter of our store and show them in PRINT what it says.

Which is a part of this society that truely scares me. They know absolutely nothing (about most things) yet they are more that will to pass judgement based on what they heard or what their mother's cousin's fiance's father's boss said.... There is absolutely ZERO initiative by the average joe out there to look into anything for themselves. Afterall, they read it on the iternet, it MUST be true...

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

I submit to you that this is what happens when you provide for the citizenry and do not allow or force them to succeed - or fail on their own. Everything that threatens the gravy train must be stopped, and anything can be construed to upset the gravy train, given enough time and advertisement.

I have a relative that is in his upper 70s and his whole life he has allowed others to do for him in one way or another. The thing that is striking is how he has crippled his own mind by allowing it to be so undisciplined for so long. He used to not want to think critically, but he simply cannot any longer - and has been this way for 20 years. This is where society is in my estimation. How else can you have facts and figures but choose to listen to others put a spin on it rather than look up truths for yourself? Coddling to prevent pain is a future catastrophe waiting to happen, not at all unlike an unfenced dog that keeps roaming in the neighbor's sheep farm.

Critical thinking has become a suspicious activity, only acceptance to the newest fad will do. And it is all too apparent that an AWB is the newest fad to be desired for those who hold the airwaves. The question on the other foot, however, is: how many gun owners are also thinking this through critically and looking down the road? My bet is that there are a few things that rank higher in importance than the AR and ammo they just purchased: paying the mortgage, putting beans on the table, putting shoes on little Johnny and getting a little free time in the easy chair.

Re: AR's are flying off the shelf!!

I would say the vast majority of Americans would turn in all their weapons when push comes to shove. Most Americans now are dependent on the government for their existence. When one ponders exactly who is in a state of dependancy, the usual suspects come to mind. Around 48 percent of the population is on foodstamps, about fifty percent of all babies born is out of wedlock, most of these will receive government assistance of some kind. A fair amount of the population is living in government housing, millions has free Obama phones, tens of millions receive direct cash welfare benefits. These are the ones that generally come to mind when one thinks of government handouts.

So, who else is dependent. Let's see, school teachers, firemen, policemen, sanitation workers, military personel, government workers of all stripes, folks on social security, folks on assisted living programs, folks on Medicare and Medicaid, dairy farmers, corn farmers producing corn for ethanol, anyone who works for or is retired from General Motors, General Electric and a host of other companies who have sold their soul.

Add to the list all folks in the U.S. Whose retirement check is signed by a government official. Now, the list will include every man woman and child now living in America thanks to Obamacare.

By the time the government demands that you turn in your firearms, there will be laws in place that will require you to do so in order to receive benefits. Who is going to resist when they have a sick child who can't get treatment because there is a firearm in the home, what military veteran is going to resist when their retirement check stops coming in the mail. What General Motors employee is going to resist when the union boss tells him he can no longer be part of the union and can no longer be empolyed.

So you say, the Federal Government would never use the powers of the bureaus to impose their will on the public! Really, the IRS has already been used in this way, and it looks as though several members or Congress were pressuring them to do so. President Obama is on record encouraging his supporters to reward his friends and punish his enemies.

So, I said all that to say this. There will be precious few resist when the Progressives come for your weapons. Those that do will be deemed terrorists and will be squashed post haste. The media will cover up all the atrocities that will be committed during the purge and after a brief and limited struggle, the disarming of America will be complete.

When the smoke clears, the folks will still have their free stuff---- for a while. Eventually the rest of the world will come to understand we have screwed them by printing counterfeit money. The dollar will lose it's current status and will be replaced by something else. The counterfeit money supply will dry up as will all the freebies.

The elitist will circle the wagons and most of the resources will be held by a few. Very poor conditions will persist for the masses. Since the masses are not armed, the elitist have little to fear and will be able to maintain control until conditions become so unbearable that there is a massive revolt. Who knows what happens after that.
