I appreciate the General for stating what I've known for years. Obama isn't the instigator, he's just picking up the pace.
This has been building up since Woodrow Wilson, Obama is just in appearance more Socialist than previous Presidents.
Like I said in previous posts, just follow the money trail. That will tell you really who controls the President and the country. Obama is a puppet. Nothing more.
The Second amendment crap is nothing more than a flanking tactic, remove the guns and you've advanced the socialist agenda and it's been coming for a long time, longer than any of us have been alive.
Problem is, we've become a complacient society, content with the government wiping our asses, actually demanding it instead of being independent we have become dependent....on the government for everything, for every restraint, for every program and every law whether that law is good for the whole or not. Wed have anti smoking laws, seatbelt laws noise laws littering laws, the list goes on and on when all it comes down to is common sense, which we, as a society are sadly lacking.
Now it's come time for the government to extract it's 'pound of flesh' in payment.
The guns will eventually go away. Maybe not in our lifetime but in the future. All we can do at this point is stall the inevitable.
So yes, the General's commentary scares me in as much as it will happen, eventually.
Take a look around, at current events, at the complaciency at the entitlement at the government wiping everyone's butthole and ask yourself... Whats the payment for this? The payment is Socialism. Accept it. We are a distinct minority.
I'll be happy with private firearm ownership for my lifetime. I don't believe my kids will have that right.
The General missed one point, we already have the domestic military prescence. Department of Homeland Security. Even the military can't fire weapons on select fire, only 3 round bursts. Guess who can run select fire... DHS. Guess where the ammunition went besides civillans panic buying......DHS.
Guess who cross trains with UN troops
on US soil....DHS.
Guess who will knock on your door and demand your legally licensed, legally possessed firearms and take them by force if necessary
.....DHS. Don't ever forget Katrina, people in general have very short memories, even on this site....
The government knows all about you and me. Would it astound you if I told you that the government has the technology to watch you take a leak outside your garage with enough resolution to see the pee stream.... Sure can. Would it astound you that the government has been patrolling the skies with unmanned drones in domestic airspace for years...sure have. Would it astound you if you knew those drones might be carrying laser guided hellfire
missles and can paint you on the ground with pinpoint accuracy and take you out..... Thats old technoligy.
It's all here and has been for at least 20 years, long before Obama.
It's the way it is, like it or not. We will still enjoy what we like, hunting and shooting for a time..... A finite time.
It will distill down to a choice in the end and that choice will be a personal one.
Be prepared, it's coming to a town near you.....
Again. its a personal thing, for me and you, why I don't like chest beating and what if's. It's not an if, it's when.
Something to ponder.
