Lt. Col. Promises to Pry Guns From the Cold Dead Fingers of American Civilians

Many have become alarmed over Obama’s ongoing purge of military officers, which is evidently intended to fundamentally transform the officer corps into an institution that will support Obama rather than the Constitution if this disastrous presidency reaches the point of forcing a choice. It has even been credibly claimed that a litmus test is the willingness to order troops to fire on American civilians. But one officer who doesn’t need to worry much about Stalin-style purges is Army Lt. Col. Robert Bateman. Shouting from atop a soapbox provided by Esquire, he proposes the following regarding rescinding our right to bear arms:

1. The only guns permitted will be the following:

a. Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets. No 7-11 in history has ever been held up with one of these.
b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.
c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.

2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them.

Other proposals include forbidding police departments from auctioning guns used in crimes, a nationwide “buy-back” program funded by the Pentagon, the nationalization of the firearms industry, and this gem:

We will submit a new tax on ammunition. In the first two years it will be 400 percent of the current retail cost of that type of ammunition. (Exemptions for the ammo used by the approved weapons.) Thereafter it will increase by 20 percent per year.

Presumably the annual increase will continue until such a time as the government is overthrown — and it will be, if it becomes as tyrannical as people like Bateman are hoping.

When the military is controlled by the likes of Bateman, it will be as hostile to the American people as the Soviet Red Army ever was. This is the apparent objective of Obama’s officer purge.

Alarmingly but unsurprisingly, Bateman reportedly works closely with Homeland Security, which under Obama has made it clear that it regards its main enemy to be not Muslim terrorists but patriotic Americans.

On tips from Conan, Peter F, and Dave S.

Update:

The picture was removed because I’m told it was the wrong Lt. Col. Robert Bateman and I haven’t been able to confirm otherwise. See Sipsey Street Irregulars (thanks to M. Hand).

    Apply the anti second amendment plans to ALL Property RIGHTS.

    “Property cannot be inherited. When you die your property must be turned into the local police department, which will then confiscate it.”

    That is fastest road to Collectivization and Communist Utopia – their ultimate objective.

    Just another white sycophant.

  3. SNuss says:

    This sounds like a member of the Obamajungen.

    The 2nd Amendment has NOTHING to do with hunting, and everything to do with defense of ourselves, our families, and our property, from fascists like him.

    How does someone so stupid rise so high in the armed forces?

  5. Son of Taz says:

    I wonder if he ever heard about sitting with one’s back to the wall?

    He should take that advice.

    Well, that’s one more rope we’ll have to bring with us when we take DC.

    I would like to take Bateman hunting with me.

    The one is replacing all those experienced generals with yes men double digit IQ boot lickers who will get spanked and lose all their troops and equipment in any real battle. Master bateman needs to be awarded the golden party badge from comrade barry.

  10. Henry says:

    Judging by that fat fuck’s gin blossom, we’ll be prying the Tanqueray bottle from his cold, pickled hand pretty soon now.

    The worst part is that this coward would send better men than himself to do his dirty work. Coward. With any luck they will turn on him and pry those medals off his cold, dead chest.

  11. justhinkin says:

    justme: too right. And I have a neighbor, self-styled conservative, with grown children no less, who says he doesn’t care about anything that happens after he dies. Economy, demographics, geopolitics don’t matter… healthcare would, except he’s got enough money to always get the care he wants. With attitudes like that, the approach you describe would work.

  12. justhinkin says:

    I’m guessing the happy Colonel and his family don’t live in an American community. Every traitor who would ever attempt to enforce a program like that will still have to go somewhere to sleep at night.

  13. Ted Turner says:

    You must admit he has a point. With no broadcast media there will only be 1789 style printing presses for Piers Morgan to use.

  14. Subject Bob says:

    what guns?

  15. Xavier says:

    Barry’s got competition for “Best Gun Salesman. Period.”

  16. Mannie says:

    Being in the military does not ensure you are a goods person. This swine should be tried by General Court Martial for violating his oath.

  17. justme says:

    Justhinkin,

    I am coming to the understanding that it is already too late. The best solution now is to turn up the heat on the Hell these bastards are set to create so that it burns them too. Give them what they want and then some in every way imaginable. Then Go Galt, leave theme in the Hell the are creating.

    Liberals love immigration – Import Somalia into the Upper East Side of Manhattan let them openly practice their “religion” beheading infidels. They AK47’s must be accepted as part of their religion.

    This loser is at best a armchair LTC who most likely has no combat exp or much in the way of training. Guys like this will be easily brushed aside. With the military purges of well trained officers NCO’s and enlisted the military will be full of flakes like this LTC, better for us when it becomes necessary to fight back.

    Just another red sycophant. Fixed that for ya.

    One look at that smiling face and you know he is an alcoholic.

    The funny thing is that either he very high mileage and the booze has aged him substantially beyond his chronological years or he has failed to make full bird colonel at a very advanced age. Both speak to his leadership qualifications.

    Intelligence has NOTHING to do with politics. As a matter of fact it is a henderence.

    Good point. All of the experienced combat leadership will be in the civilian population. Meanwhile the enemy forces will be lead by filth like Master Bateman.

    We will see how far his Medal of Douchbaggery takes him then. Makes a great aim point in the snipers triangle.

    That is the wrong picture. The LTC Bateman,at this link, is the idiot who wrote the treasonous screed.

    I got those same medals out of a Cracker Jack box.

  28. OldmanRick says:

    Definitely a real piece of work. How, did he ever reach the rank of 05? Did this guy ever see any combat or did he spend his entire military career with his nose up someone’s posterior? More than likely the latter is applicable.

  29. Jeff says:

    @Ltc Batemman. I find your lack of common sense disturbing, not suprising, but disturbing. You are a traitor and an abomination to all the values, purposes and traditions of the once great US Army. You have betrayed your oath of office to support an defend the constitution. You know damn well that the second ammendment has nothing to do with hunting. You are the enemy. And you will be treated as such.

  30. Jimbo says:

    I triple-dog-dare the communist Lt. Col. Robert Bateman to try his shit in Texas. In person.

    Come and get them Idiot Bateman.

  34. Jester says:

    I love how this paper tiger keeps repeating the words “I” and “we” when threatening to have the Second Amendment functionally dissolved. By you and whom, my dictatorial friend? How, exactly, and when? Those are rather important details to cospicuously omit, making it difficult to take any of this bullshit seiously.

    This all sounds like it was spewed during a campus coffee shop open-mike night by an angry, bitter, entitled 21-yr-old Marxist working on his associate’s degree in Redistributive Wealth.

  35. Alan says:

    I’m fine with this. Since you interpret the Constitution so stingently, Ltc Batemen, I propose Congress slash *your* budget to about what it was in 1800. Your troops will go into battle using the weapons you described, on HORSEBACK, plus a few cannons and 100-foot wooden ships. Field hospitals will be equipped with cots, tweezers, handsaws and leeches.

    Seriously, is this guy on active duty? I ask because career military officers don’t typically jump into divisive political issues. If he is still in uniform, my guess he’s approaching retirement and fishing for a $100,000 government job on top of his full military pension.

    Impeach Obama.Court Martial Lt Col Bateman

    The good LTC is probably feeling a bit down after shooting his mouth off so I sent him a few tips for a successful retirement.

    Violated his oath to the Constitution with his rubbish. Idiot and traitor!

    This is why “fragging” is not always a bad thing.
