Overplaying the Liberal Hand

When one party achieves secure power in one location, it is interesting to see how that power is handled. The Democrats in control of the U.S. House of Representatives are a good example.
Even before President Trump was inaugurated, the Democrats insisted that he be impeached. It was astonishing to see the naked animus exhibited by Democrat House leadership. The clownish impeachment hearings were so clearly one-sided and unfair, that the Establishment News Media had a tough time determining how to spin the mess that was being broadcast into our homes.
But there is a better microcosm available for citizens to judge what Democrats really want in their quest for total control.
As in Texas, densely-populated areas run by Democrats are wielding more and more influence in their respective states’ legislatures.
The Democrat Presidential debates brought some of these intentions into sharp focus: “free” healthcare, “free” college, punitive taxes on the “rich,” to name a few.
But there was one issue in particular mentioned in the course of Democrat candidates’ campaigns that is now starkly in focus in one particular state: Democrat dominated Virginia government going for gun confiscation, the crown jewel of power.
We received an early warning when Robert Francis O’Rourke blurted out, “Hell yeah , we’re gonna take your AR-15s and AK-47s!” That statement did two things: 1. It knocked O’Rourke out of contention and, 2. It tipped the Democrats hand of what they really wanted and had managed to keep quiet to that point.
Yes, it is gun confiscation and complete civilian disarmament.
Why can this be said with complete certitude? Look at what is happening in Virginia. The Governor, Dr. Ralph Northam and his Democrat-dominated legislature have pushed for an “Assault Weapon” ban that would include confiscation.
There is no such thing as a “Buy Back”. If the government demands your property, regardless of whether or not you are offered money for it, that is confiscation. If you refuse, you will be killed. The killing of guns owners who refuse to give up their arms has already begun because of “red flag” laws.This has actually been promoted by Virginia Attorney General Mark “Red” Herring, who is willing to use whatever force is required to enforce gun confiscation laws, including the use of the National Guard. Herring might want to check with President Trump on that first.
The first battle of the American Revolution was fought over gun control. The British forces marched from Boston to confiscate colonists’ weapons, powder and ball on April 19th, 1775. Several riders including Paul Revere and William Dawes rode to warn the public to take up arms against the British. We know the outcome of Lexington Green and Concord Bridge.
Today’s riders, warning civilians, are those cities and counties declaring themselves “Second Amendment Sanctuaries”. Taking the cue from cities and counties declaring themselves “sanctuaries” or illegal aliens, Virginia cities and counties in large numbers are declaring themselves “Second Amendment” sanctuaries. And the Liberals in power were quick to denounce. “Null and void,” and “can’t usurp state law!” spouted from the gun grabbers. Ninety-four Virginia localities have been reported declaring themselves such sanctuaries.
The threat of armed force from the leader of Virginia, Governor Northam, is being taken very seriously. After all, here is a physician who openly stated that he believes it is perfectly fine to make a baby “comfortable” while it is allowed to die after being born. If these Democrats are willing to kill the most vulnerable among us…
Human nature demonstrates that people predominately like to be left alone and also not bother others. But when there is a perceived threat, the urge is to band together for protection. So, once again, militias are forming all over Virginia. Are they serious? It is reported that many of those joining are recent U.S. Military members and are not to be trifled with.
There is good reason to for apprehension about gun confiscation. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the National Guard accompanied New Orleans police officers as they went house to house confiscating all firearms, thus removing the only protection citizens had against roving looter and rapists.
So yes, it has already happened.
It may only be a matter of time before a Virginia rendition of the Gonzales “Come And Take It” flag is seen flying at county courthouses.
Will the blue “tyranny of the municipalities” may turn Texas blue enough so the desires of O’Rourke and his Leftists comrades attempt to disarm the Lone Star state in their march into the darkness of Fascism?
