Back to the Future: What History Teaches About Gun Confiscations

It is clear that Obama, Boxer, a host of other elected representatives, the media, and Hollywood stars and are coming after our guns. Leading the media charge is none other Michael Moore in which he implores the nation to let the murders of 20 Sandy Hook elementary students not “be in vain and stand for gun control.” Moore seems to forget that he and his family have several armed bodyguards.

Then there is Obama who refuses to mandate that gun free zones at schools be replaced with armed guards designed in order to protect our children. And Obama also seems to forget to mention that he has 11 armed guards protecting his children while they attend school in a “gun free zone.”

Oh, I think Obama and Moore think that our children are important. It is just that their children are much more important than our children. Simply put, Obama and Moore advocate for “rules for thee but not for me.”

Outright Gun Bans Are Looming 

Regrettably, I believe that we are going to see an incrementally based approach to seizing our guns on the part of the Obama administration. Subsequently, Americans could very well be on the verge of committing “National Suicide by Gun Control”.

The gun control advocates are positioning themselves and their gun-grabbing policies to be perfectly timed to influence people during this window of opportunity motivated by the highly suspicious set of mass shootings (e.g. Batman shootings, Sandy Hook shootings).

All totalitarian governments begin their invasion into civil liberties with the promise of safety from whoever plays the convenient role of the “bogeyman” of the day. In Nazi Germany, the original bogeymen were the communists, and then this specter of bogeymen kept expanding until anyone who was an enemy of the State needed to be controlled and disarmed. Isn’t this what we have witnessed since the days of 9/11 with the creation of the DHS-inspired MIAC report which lists returning veterans, gun owners, Libertarians, Ron Paul supporters and Constitutionalists as domestic terrorists. This is your list of people who will be disarmed first, and the list will keep growing until all Americans are disarmed. The totalitarian pleas of “Let us protect you from yourself” ring loudly and clearly through the halls of Congress and in the Oval Office. History shows that when governments demand to protect you from yourself, we should all get a little bit nervous.

History Speaks Will American Listen? 

History shows that bad things, very bad things, happen when a government confiscates the guns of its citizens. It is an undisputed fact that gun control and gun confiscation have preceded every instance of genocide in the 20th century. How quickly we forget the lessons of history, or, perhaps we never bothered to learn the true lessons of history in the first place.

If we ever allow government to subvert the Second Amendment, we very well could be witnessing a prelude to an American genocide for specific targeted groups, for there is nothing as dangerous to a totalitarian regime as an educated and well-armed populace. Totalitarian regimes flourish in an atmosphere of ignorance. The dumbing down of American students has removed the first obstacle which could stand in the way of the establishment of a brutal police state control grid. The second obstacle, the removal of America’s citizens guns as a last line of defense against tyrannical government has commenced with the catalyst being the Sandy Hook shootings.

And let’s not forget that this criminal Obama administration has been caught shipping guns into Mexico to the drug cartels in order to undermine the Second Amendment; and we are supposed to trust these proven criminals to be the only ones who will have guns in the new UN-controlled America?

What Happens After Gun Confiscation? 

Before we passively allow the Obama administration to strip away our last line of defense from an increasingly totalitarian government, by acquiescing to the United Nations and American advocates for gun control, perhaps we should examine the end game resulting from past gun control efforts:

1. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves against their ethnic-cleansing government, were arrested and exterminated.

2. In 1929, the former Soviet Union established gun control as a means of controlling the “more difficult” of their citizens. From 1929 to the death of Stalin, 40 million Soviets met an untimely end at the hand of various governmental agencies as they were arrested and exterminated.

3. After the rise of the Nazis, Germany established their version of gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill, and others, who were unable to defend themselves against the “Brown Shirts”, were arrested and exterminated. Interestingly, the Brown Shirts were eventually targeted for extermination themselves following their blind acts of allegiance to Hitler. Any American military and police would be wise to grasp the historical significance of the Brown Shirts’ fate.

4. After Communist China established gun control in 1935, an estimated 50 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves against their fascist leaders, were arrested and exterminated.

5. Closer to home, Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayans, unable to defend themselves against their ruthless dictatorship, were arrested and exterminated.

6. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves from their dictatorial government, were arrested and exterminated.

7. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million of the “educated” people, unable to defend themselves against their fascist government, were arrested and exterminated.

8. In 1994, Rwanda disarmed the Tutsi people and being unable to defend themselves from their totalitarian government, nearly one million were summarily executed.

The total numbers of victims who lost their lives because of gun control is approximately 70 million people in the 20th century. The historical voices from 70 million corpses speak loudly and clearly to those Americans who are advocating for a de facto gun ban. Governments murdered four times as many civilians as were killed in all the international and domestic wars combined. Governments murdered millions more people than were killed by common criminals and it all followed gun control.

Historically, American gun control legislation has been imitating Hitler’s Nazi Germany gun control legislation for quite some time. Consider the key provisions of the Nazi Weapons Act of 1938 and compare it with the United States Gun Control Act of 1968. The parallels of both the provisions and the legal language are eerily similar.

The Nazi Weapons Act of 1938 

1. Classified guns for sporting purposes.

2. All Germans desiring to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and submit to a background check.

3. The law assumed that non-Nazi German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazis from the gun control law.

4. The Nazis assumed unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not, be owned by private persons.

5. The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by governmental bureaucrats.

6. Citizens under 18 years of age could not buy firearms and ammunition.

United States Gun Control Act of 1968 

1. Introduced term “sporting purpose.”

2. Exempted government agencies from the controls which applied to law-abiding citizens.

3. Age restrictions of 18 years and 21 years were applied to anyone who wished to purchase firearms and ammunition.

4. Authorized the Secretary of the Treasury to decide what firearms could or could not be owned by private persons.

5.The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by governmental bureaucrats.

6. Age restriction of 18 years and 21 years were applied to anyone who wished to purchase firearms and ammunition.

Thomas Jefferson was very clear in his writings regarding the right to bear arms. Jefferson knew that the preservation of the Republic ultimately rested upon a well-armed citizenry. Jefferson felt it was absolutely necessary for American citizens to be able to protect themselves. The protection that Jefferson spoke of was not from our obvious enemies of the day (France and Britain), but from our own government. Jefferson made this point quite clear when he admonished future generations of Americans to fulfill their duty to overthrow a government if they failed to serve the needs of the majority of its citizens.

Private ownership of guns is the necessary component needed to fulfill the Jeffersonian mandate for national self-defense. Yet, increasingly reminiscent of Nazi Germany, the United States government is incrementally chipping away at private citizens’ right to own a gun. This does doesn’t make sense because FBI statistics clearly show that 90% of the guns used in the commission of a crime are stolen! Does the government really believe that criminals, both American citizens and illegal aliens, as well as terrorists, are suddenly going to perform their civic duty and immediately register their guns? How is America better-served if the only ones who don’t have access to guns are the law-abiding citizens? So, one must ask who are the gun control laws designed to protect and why?

Finally, most would wonder what gun confiscation would look and feel like in America. No speculation is necessary because of the gun confiscations which took place in New Orleans in 2006 in the aftermath of Katrina. Any American who thinks that gun confiscation is a good idea, needs desperately to watch the following video.

Is this the government that you are going to accept? Even the most brainwashed of Americans cannot deny what you just watched on the preceding video. If we allow Obama to possess the ability to ban our guns, this is what you will likely see across the country; and the potential for this to spread into a flashpoint for widespread violence, and even revolution, should be concerning to all of us. This issue, in my humble opinion, needs to be our line in the sand against this tyrannical government.

Historians generally agree that there are eight identifiable stages associated with an unfolding genocide. It would behoove all Americans to familiarize themselves with these stages in order to accurately assess the developing threat should gun confiscation ever become a reality. An analysis of the applicability of the eight stages of genocide to present day America will be the focus of the next part in this series.

    I will not register firearms to preserve my second amendment rights anymore than I will register my dictionary to preserve my first amendment.

  • leo in stevens point

    this will all back fire on the elitists one day

  • wolf

    When tyranny arrives I guess Ill be digging many graves, and they wont be mine because I aint playing either. I made my mind up long ago that I was willing to kill people that were trying to trample on my freedom. Bring it the fuck on.

  • Bam Bam

    I will not submit! We know where this goes. I will be a patriot and die fighting for FREEDOM, if that must be my fate. Alot of good people have done no less for us. I’ll be in good company.

  • Patriot2013

    I am ready to kill as many of the enemy traitors who are suicidal enough to come try and take my guns, as I possibly can before they finally kill me. For GD real. I cannot wait for them to walk into my kill box….

    • MarshRabbit

      I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if the feds want your guns they will come while you’re at work. When you get home there will be two documents tacked to your front door; one will be a copy of the warrant and the other will be a list of what was taked. Unless it’s an arrest warrant, they would rather not see you. You might have some decoy guns in a obvious place like a gun safe, and secret your real stash somewhere else. But you’re going to have to be good if you are going to fool an experienced search team.

      • MarshRabbit

        “taken”, not “taked”, sorry.

    • Lars Olfen

      YES There are more of us than them, and we’re better armed. They (and some of us) seem to forget this.

  • Patriot2013

    Give me Liberty, or I give them: DEATH.

  • Ex-Navy

    I said the “Oath” 21 years ago – which still lives in my bones! I have spent time in the US Navy, then years in LE. then in FEMA DMAT MN-1. NO ONE will disarm US! Come get some!

    What happens is a strategic blunder when you disarm the civilian militia that is the back-up to the armed forces that only number 1.6 active and 900,000 reserves. I can see some Chinese general waiting and hoping that there is all sorts of gun restrictions, the more the better for the China man. Those anti-gunners take away the tens of millions of guns from the civilian army that is the foundation for keeping the country from being conquered and EVERYONE loses.

    The U.S. is a superpower with plenty of enemies looking to weaken the country any and all ways they can. Restrictive gun bans to 10 magazine or 5 magazine sizes and what type of rifles you can possess and they give a big fat advantage to any enemy planning to attack the country. Forget about everything else for a moment here, we are talking about making the country much more vulnerable. The founding fathers understood this and why they adopted the 2nd. amendment to safeguard the person, but much more so to safeguard the country from falling into enemy hands.

    Take away people’s right to own the present day firearms and they have committed a tremendous national security risk to the whole country, including the anti-gun crowd. Those anti-self defense nuts better get use to speaking Chinese, Russian, or Arabic and mining salt somehwere IF they succeed in disarming America.

  • wormdirt

    Register guns? No thanks. If Dianne Frankenswine’s bill passes we just need to impose the largest act of civil disobedience in our nations history by refusing to comply. It’s that simple.

  • michael

    We know the why, now how do we come together to establish a fighting force? Lets face facts; we may take a few of them with us to the hereafter but in order to stop this, we must learn to put away our differences and organize.

    • Jean

      BEtter to have unattached guerilla units. Resistance cells can be comrpomised, communications as well, but disorganized non-cooperating units can never truly be destroyed – another one will pop up each time one is rubbed out – and maybe two or three.

  • semper paratus

    let there be no mistake, this is NOT about doing what’s best for the country nor is it being done in the name of ‘safety for the children’. looking at violent crime rates in the UK or Australia should cue in anyone with any good intentions, gun legislation dont work. heck, isnt murder and rape outlawed? how is THAT workin out for u? they want us disarmed- tyranny cannot be fully implemented without this. reasoning with these communists (old term i kno, but fully applicable) is futile. they want us subservient with true americans exterminated. let there be no mistake. the nemey approaches, prepare accordingly

    • Nexus789

      Crime rates and death by guns are two different things. Crime rises for a lot of reasons. Specifically, a greater divide between the poor and the wealthy. Gun ownership is not going to do anything to correct this and does not deter casual crime.

      I used to lived in the UK much of my life and I have lived in Canada, New Zealand and now Australia for 20 years. I have never had the need or ever wanted to own a gun. This is uniquely an American fixation.

      Love to see all you gun owning patriots get out there and take on the US Government.

      • SKIP

        SO! living in Australia huh? then STFU and buy a prayer rug as Oz goes islamic. Another word for you would be PREY or perhaps VICTIM!

        • Sparkymcsparkleton

          Wow, what a completely unnecessary outburst, what does it matter even if he is a muslim, the primary religion is catholic over there anyway. Plus, this entire article was basically untruthful. It is not an undisputed fact that removing guns from citizens precedes genocides, it’s happened in 3 cases. All of them in poor countries turning totalitarian. Most of Europe has gun control, and lately there have been no shootings. Britain has gun control, and we dont have problems. It is a purely American fixation, guns are not a basic human right. Your constitution is outdated now, wake up and join the 21st century, besides you’re overreacting, you are still allowed guns. Just deal with it. If you’re against gun control then you’re for guns being out of control.

          • SKIP

            STFU and buy a prayer rug because you WILL NOT be tolerated in the new Britainistan as any other than a muslim! If you think otherwise, you do not know anything about islam and muslims. Islam will allow you 3 choices, convert, pay the tax and be enslaved or DIE! that is all!!! I have been in the Muddled East for 10 years and seen all too much how the “religion of peace” operates. Also have been in England and know how your country is being betrayed by your government WHICH! BTW is not less than 30% PAKISTANI BORN MUSLIMS! See where this is going?

  • Sparkymcsparkleton

    No, you fucking racist twat. Just because we’ve learned to accept other religions and you haven’t. There’s no chance of them “taking over” anything, we allow muslims into our country because they work and they obey the law for the most part. We have extremists, but all religions do. Certain sects of Christianity have done worse, arranging mass suicides and such, perpetuating hate crimes. Islam at its heart is a peaceful religion. Don’t get it twisted. Most of your comment makes no sense either. We have strict rules regarding immigration and although a lot of conservative assholes like yourself don’t think we have enough, they are perfectly fine.
