And they just keep getting bigger and bigger egos. And why not. There is no one to stop them. They have done whatever they choose and they just continue to get away with it.
How much will be enough. When will it end. Who will be the one individual or company with a loud enough voice to finally just flat out put on the brakes and declare ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
One key issue here is that companies like Magpul and ArmaLite are condoning the idea that LEO’s are “ABOVE” the law. They are American citizens just as much as the rest of us. If the LAW is properly enforced it should effect ALL citizens and NOT just certain segments of the population. The reason these companies sell out to this type of “selective” sales is because they don’t want to take a hit to their revenue stream. The only choice you have as a concerned citizen is to eliminate the “other” part of their revenue stream by NOT purchasing their products to motivate them to see the error in their “selective” logic.
LEO’s are NOT above the law. Government officials are NOT above the law. They are NOT BETTER THAN ANY OTHER CITIZENS. In reality they are PUBLIC SERVANTS. They are OUR EMPLOYEES! As a matter of fact we are paying them to DEFEND OUR RIGHTS, and UPHOLD the LAW, which INCLUDES THE CONSTITUTION. We’re NOT supposed to just ignore their infractions while they continue to cater to their “supervisors” orders. Their “authority” comes with ADDITIONAL responsibility, it does NOT eliminate it.
Exactly what is it about LEO’s, or any government employee for that matter, that makes one think they should be held any less accountable to the law’s they are passing, or are supposed to enforce?
You might as well just tell them they are able to murder anyone that they want. Why not? They have already gotten away with it in the past, and it would seem under this “misguided” and “selective” logic since they have a badge or a “title” there should be no reason to question them if they do. Oh, but wait. I guess that time has already come and pass. You have ALREADY let that go. They are ALREADY doing these things. And YOU apparently DON’T CARE!
Then you wonder why our freedoms are being destroyed one by one. What a waste. Those of you who don’t get it, obviously never will. Your stupidity, Your apathy, and your ignorance has DESTROYED MY COUNTRY! I for one, don’t forgive you.
Government employees, how do you think they will pay you when they have destroyed all the productive people in our society. The same question can be asked to you lazy, useless, welfare hounds, that consistently leach off of the tax money collected from productive citizens. It is the money made from taxes paid by productive people that provide you a paycheck. Where will that money come from when the government has imprisoned, killed, violated, and destroyed all the individuals that you ritualistically argue with because they believe in the things that MAKE THEM THE PRODUCERS that YOU ARE RELYING ON! WHERE IS THE LOGIC! How do you figure you will continue to steal money from productive citizens when there ARE NONE LEFT! This is basic common sense and yet your minds are so diluted that even this simple concept alludes you.
The truth is I’m tired of this same old argument. No one is going to win either way. The sheeple are too feeble to understand their flawed logic, and will continue to worship their masters. While the the rest of us will continue to support freedom, liberty, independence, and natural rights.
I will fight for my RIGHTS and my FREEDOMS. If that means that I end up saving the “sheeple” too, then I suppose that is just the cost I will have to pay for my OWN safety and liberty.
So my question stands. WHO will take the lead? I would do so myself but I’m just a nobody. A single warrior who will fight in vain when the time comes. I will die for what I believe in, if for no other reason than the fact that I would rather be dead than be enslaved. But this could be avoided. All it would take is ONE influential person or company to say ENOUGH! To stand for what is right. To take the lead and organize the patriots left among us. ArmaLite hung us out to dry right from the get go. Magpul started out of the gate with an EXCELLENT stride and then fumbled the ball by IDOLIZING the VERY people that will ENFORCE the “LAWS” that they had “proclaimed” to dispute.
Is there NO ONE LEFT! Is there no company or individual with enough charisma, notoriety, fortitude, dignity, and integrity, to stand at the forefront, to unite the people, and to make the official call to arms? Is there no one tenacity to endure, to deny any further compromise, to look the opposition right in the eye and say in one organized and authoritative voice “WE WILL TAKE NO MORE!”
The NRA still wants to “compromise”. They still support passing more “laws”. They want to put MORE big brother into our schools. They want to restrict MORE individuals rights by supporting the ideal of “Mental Health” being a reason to deny a persons rights, when even they themselves admit there is no way to accurately define “MENTAL HEALTH”. They still support “background checks” as if there is a “panel” of individuals whom should have some “authority” to DENY a persons RIGHTS!
The NAGR is at least no compromise for the “most” part but until they decide to support ONLY CONSTITUTIONAL CARRY! I won’t consider them “No Compromise” And they are contributing to our disorganization by attacking the NRA for their stances on firearms rights. While they are correct in their statements it isn’t helping our cause when these groups can’t accept they have some common goals. If they worked together they could accomplish infinitely more.
Then there is GOA which so far has a pretty good record for being relatively close to “No Compromise” but even then they can sometimes seem a little willing to “negotiate”. However they are still attempting to obtain the same basic results. So they should as well be will to get together and combine resources to confront the opposition.
These groups should be working together. They should be fighting for one simple goal. SUPPORT THE CONSTITUTION! The United States Constitution recognizes the ABSOLUTE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. Not just those that are deemed worthy by some “organization” .
Does a felony conviction mean that someone has any less of a right to defend themselves? I think not! Nor do I think I have any less right to shoot a felon or any other individual if they should so choose to violate my rights WITH OR WITHOUT A WEAPON! If a felon serves their time and pays their penance they should be allowed to enter back into society just as they were prior to their conviction. If laws were ENFORCED and punishments were APPROPRIATED AS THEY SHOULD BE this would not be such a difficult idealism to accept.
Can a “background check” predict the future? No, it simply allows a “governing body” to GUESS as to the POSSIBLE future activities of an individual. Aren’t we supposed to be innocent until proven guilty? How are we to be “punished” for a crime that we have not even committed?
And I’ve only discussed the problem’s concerning the 2nd Amendment. We haven’t even touched on the remaining rights recognized by the remainder of the Constitution. Our freedom of speech slowly being decayed by “Political Correctness” and “Censorship”. Our rights to privacy being destroyed by illegal searches and seizures. Our very right to freedom being eviscerated by illegal detention and elimination of choice. Not to mention numerous other atrocities being perpetrated by our tyrannical government. Yet the sheeple continue to accept such things as “REASONABLE” accommodations. Once again the sheeple are willing to accept a sacrifice of the people rights for the illusion of safety. And the return is nothing but LESS SAFETY and LESS FREEDOM!
Seriously, the time has come. All those that believe in Freedom, support the United States Constitution, and are willing to encourage independence and personal responsibility, need to stand together as one, and finally say “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!” “WE WILL TOLERATE NO MORE!” “NO MORE COMPROMISE” “NO RETREAT!” “NO SURRENDER!” “JUST PLAIN NO!!!”
