A Generation Away

As Ronald Reagan famously warned us,

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

San Diego’s authoritarian police chief confirms that we are but a generation away:

San Diego Police Chief William Lansdowne is fully supportive of the Obama/Feinstein gun grab, and says if lawmakers play it right Americans can be completely disarmed within “a generation.”

Regarding the statist establishment’s success at exploiting the Newtown killings, Lansdowne

seems overtly thrilled at the money the NRA is being forced to spend to get their message out in the wake of the crime at Sandy Hook Elementary. “We broke the NRA,” says Lansdowne.

That’s why this would be a good time to extend your NRA membership, or join if you have not already.

An encouraging number of local law enforcement officials, particularly sheriffs, have made it clear that they will not participate in unconstitutional gun grabs by the federal government. However, big city police chiefs like Lansdowne and William Bratton are creatures of left-wing urban politics. They would have no qualms with helping Obama to impose a police state.

Lansdowne. We won’t be able to say they didn’t warn us.

On a tip from born in 76.

    Police Chief talks of thugs that took an oath to
    uphold the U.S. Constitution and broke that oath
    during Katrina..
    He will never disarm any U.S. citizen through
    Unconstitutional 2nd Amendment Orders – he would
    rather take off his uniform and join the citizenry..

    Interesting photo. Their uniforms look eerily similar.

    This chief, like many others in big cities was likely selected based on his moonbattery.
    And like other moonbats, this isn’t the first time Lansdowne used irrationally based fear mongering to get his way

    MORAL: Don’t live in big cities. Build on unincorporated COUNTY

    Well, good thing they already have the Gestapo lookin uniforms. I left SD in ’96 and the best thing to come out of there is the Roger Hedgecock show.
    I have to go back for a weekend in a couple of weeks and I’m even taking enough gas to get outta there without buying any.

    The Left always manages to find some liberal police “chiefs” to add a fales sense of knowledge to their argument, like the clown at the congressional hearing the other day. For the most part, these morons are simply bureaucrats, not real police. They serve at the pleasure of some left-wing politician, and if they don’t follow the party line, they’re gone. The NYPD’s Ray Kelly is a perfect example of this.

    Why would any police officer be for banning guns? The answer is that most officers whose skin is in the game do support the 2nd Amendment and the rights of honest citizens to conceal carry and have guns. However, many upper rank corrupt police bureacrats in big cities like Landsdowne and Bratton, whose duties in the front line ended long ago, and who are now more interested in hobknobbing with liberal politicos, looking for that next appointment or handout to pad their own finances, are more than fine with selling out the people they gave an oath to protect:

    There is an inverse relationship between the rank of the officer and the degree to which law enforcement officials support rights of law-abiding citizens to carry concealed weapons for self-protection. The line officers, who spend the most time on the street and should be most threatened by the potential risk of additional permit holders, often express the greatest support for concealed carry laws. In contrast, the highest-ranking, often politically appointed officers, whose lives are least threatened, are the most vocal opponents of the law. Survey results showed that 76 percent of street officers and 59 percent of managerial officers agreed that all trained, responsible adults should be able to obtain handgun carry permits.

    These police bureacrats are as contemptable as the top military officers Obama is busily installing who would fire on American citizens. We’ve got to hope there is enough real Americans oath keepers still left in the police and military who would rebel against the unconstitutional orders from the cabal of Obamanist drones in leadership positions during the upcoming civil war.

    Of course Urban Police Chiefs want a Police State because it would be very safe ….. for the Police.

    …and as long as we’re buyin’ rounds at the VFW….
    I had an apple beer when I was up-town the other day,mmmm….but today I’d settle for anything WARM

    I re-upped my NRA membership, but will be happy to contribute more $$ if the situation demands it. (By the way, I don’t think the NRA is going broke at the moment.)

    These bastards have got a tiger by the tail but don’t know it yet. As Rich says, they will never disarm us. No how, no way. There ARE still free men left in America…lots of them…and this is the issue that will galvanize us.

    “…from my cold, dead fingers.”

    I couldn’t agree more, Doug.

    Quote of the day:

    “I saw a movie once where only the police and military had guns….it was called Schindler’s List.”
