OK - we're faced with a choice. We can have this, via House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Good Morning America last Tuesday:
"The ball is in Congress's court to craft a compromise in reinstating regulations on assault weapons." Congress will work to find some middle ground between the previous ban, which expired in 2004, and the precedent laid by the Supreme Court in a ruling enumerating more concrete gunowners' rights last term. "We have to find some level of compromise," Pelosi said, citing 53 victims of gun violence nationwide in less than a month. "And we have to rid the debate of the misconceptions people have about what gun safety means."
(We all know what "gun safety" means to the left. It translates into "if we get their guns we'll be safe as we enslave them")
"We want them registered, and we don't want them crossing state lines..."
OR - we can have this, with thanks to Jesus Christ, the Founding Fathers and the supreme law of the land:
"When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace."
--Jesus Christ, Luke 11:21
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government."
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself! They are the American people's Libertys Teeth and keystone under Independence. From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security, and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere, restrains evil interference -- they deserve a place of honor with all that's good!"
-- George Washington - January 1790
This disarmament development comes on the heels of the G-20 meeting in which American financial sovereignty was all but eliminated and replaced with an international socialist regulatory regime. The decisive moment draws ever nearer - will we acquiesce to life as slaves or will we find the backbone to rise and fight to restore Liberty?
