So DiFi wants to “buy” my AR?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that she and other gun control advocates are considering a law that would create a program to purchase weapons from gun owners, a proposal that could be compulsory.
I guess that means we need to discuss what my AR (and yours) will cost her and her minions. I hope she doesn’t think my saying it will cost rivers of blood and oceans of tears is some sort of hyperbole.
There is no question that the local police could easily sneak up on me while I am sleeping and take me by surprise. The problem is not the initial gun grab. It’s the bloody aftermath. I suspect that some of the police agencies are making some calculations. They will have to calculate how much they want to keep their jobs and their lives.
Once something like a mass gun grab starts, each and every police officer will become a target. And that’s sad, really. I kind of like my police chief. He’s a cop, and prone to the sort “cop attitude” that they all get, but a likeable enough fellow in his own way. If we can’t get through this crisis with our Constitution intact, I certainly hope that he and his agency have the strength of character to abide by their oaths. If he remembers his oath he will have nothing to fear from the citizens.
The people like DiFi had better hope they do. Because while the immediate targets would be the enforcers, the very next targets would be the people giving the orders. And you can bet that while these order givers will have security, some of that security will turn out to be on our side.
