The Federal Assault Weapons Ban bill passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday on a partisan 10-8 vote. The bill’s primary sponsor, Senator Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) — who has said she’d like to see all guns removed from the hands of Americans — knows “the road is uphill” for the legislation’s passage. If that’s the case, then why pass it if not just to poke in the eye a significant portion of the American population already upset over the anti-gun rhetoric and attacks on lawful gun owners by the gun grabbers?
But while the ban on so-called “assault weapons” is more than likely to fail, it’s not unlikely that Republicans who want to go along to get along will glom on to legislation requiring universal background checks, which passed out of the Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Universal background checks are the camel’s nose under the tent. As former Attorney General Janet Reno said in 1993 during discussions of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban (AWB): “Waiting periods are only a step. Registration is only a step. The prohibition of private firearms is the goal.” Remember that the elites are content with incremental steps that I call gradualism.
Remember also that gun control is not a partisan issue, although it appears so now and conventional wisdom says so. Prominent Republicans (including much of the field for the last GOP Presidential nomination), in a bid to appear “reasonable” to the establishment crowd, have supported various measures that restricted gun ownership. The last GOP standard-bearer, Mitt Romney, said he would have signed the 1994 AWB if it came to his desk. If he were President today, a gun bill would be more than likely to pass because he would provide cover for statist Republicans to go along with a gun ban — as George W. Bush provided cover for Republicans to support anti-liberty measures like expanding Medicare and passing No Child Left Behind and other government-growing legislation.
President Richard Nixon, in a taped conversation with aides, said: “I don’t know why any individual should have a right to have a revolver in his house. The kids usually kill themselves with it and so forth.” He asked why “can’t we go after handguns, period? I know the rifle association will be against it, the gun makers will be against it.” But “people should not have handguns.”
Its time to hammer another nail into the coffin of the 2 party system. Post modern political science has taught Marxism is the far left and fascism is far right. We are told that Democrats lean to the left and Republicans lean-to the right, both leaning towards an extremism. But this is false information. Fascism is not right leaning, it is yet another subset of Marxism. All the fascist of the 20th century were national socialist. That is hard left leaning politics.
Understand this, Marxism is hard left and anarchy is hard right. Neither the Democrats or the Republicans lean towards anarchism. I am by no means an anarchist, but I would far prefer anarchism over Marxist tyranny any day of the week. One step below anarchism is a confederacy, the next step below that is a constitutional republic (which is what our founders and framers created). I have read many times on blogs where people are calling for a democratic republic. And it is obvious they have no idea what they are calling for, the most notable democratic republic was East Germany before the wall fell. And they were notorious for not having elections and abusing their citizens. So a democratic republic would be hard left leaning as well.
So when we put fascism in its proper place, under a form of Marxism, we see that the Republican party is now left leaning as well. As Pat Buchanan says, “the Republicans and Democrats are two different wings of the same bird of prey.” In other words they are both gunning for control over you and I. They both want to have absolute control. Both parties are filled to the brim with corruption. And neither party has your best interest in mind, they have put one interest and that is absolute power.
Look at gun legislation passed in the 20th century and you will find a lot of Republican names voting for that legislation. Look at how the Republican party treated Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan, and others that stood up for liberty. It was the Republican party that gave us the Patriot Act. Need I say more?
You are the resistance.
