The frenzy of anti–Second Amendment propaganda the statist media exploited Newtown as a pretext to unleash has died down slightly, but that is no reason for patriots to drop their guard. David Gregory, Piers Morgan, et al. are the Luftwaffe, softening up the victim with intensive rhetorical bombing. The next phase in the progressive blitzkrieg is ground troops, in the form of authoritarian bureaucrats. Not all of them attack our precious liberties at the federal level. Democrats in Missouri are pushing a bill that would give
citizens subjects 90 days to turn in their “assault weapons” or face arrest.
The absurdly broad definition of “assault weapon” includes a significant percentage of modern firearms, including any semiautomatic rifle or shotgun with a pistol grip or folding stock, among a long list of other common features.
Forbidden guns would not be grandfathered. Mere possession of one would be a felony.
If the law is imposed without significant bloodshed, the list of forbidden guns will of course be expanded until it includes anything that even reminds liberal tyrants of the capacity of individuals to exercise the God-given right of self-defense.
We will very soon face a choice between applying the Second Amendment as it was intended or abdicating any right to call ourselves Americans.
