There is nothing more frightening than the government, nor more dangerous. The power it wields is vast, and only a respect for the law and for the people keep it from becoming tyrannical. Our founders understood that the law is only an idea, words on paper; and that once government chooses to ignore those words, only the people can prevent tyranny. Hence, they gave us the 2nd Amendment, the People’s Liberty’s Teeth as Washington put it, to make sure that our own leaders would never turn into the despots that drove them, and many others, from Europe.
In 1938, Hitler drafted gun control laws that began the disarmament and eventual genocide of millions. In 1968, leading American Democrats crafted the Gun Control Act of 1968. I say crafted, but it is mostly plagiarized from Hitler’s 1938 law. They have been working hard to disarm the American people ever since, with complicity of left-leaning republicans and a mainstream media that is little more than the GNC’s own propaganda wing. These groups have worked hard to blame guns for the violence that bloodies our streets and kills our young people, while shielding from blame–or even scrutiny–societal causes that arose from their own leftist programs.
Now, a few days after the Sandy Hook Massacre, and we see the Left giving pitiful lip service to the grief caused by Lanza, the shooter, while doing everything it can to push for ever-harsher gun controls. The Left refuses to acknowledge that gun control could not have saved those children; they insist that taking guns from the law-abiding and the peaceful is the only way to solve this problem. The following documentary shows what happens when personal liberty is surrendered in this way, it gives you insight into what happens when people listen to their government when they said, “Trust us! We would never harm you!”
