Weapons of war.....meaning automatic rifles? That's what they use, automatics. Regular civilians can't just purchase a fully automatic anything at a gun store, they would require a class 3 FFL (Federal Firearms License).

Basically the only people who have fully automatic weapons are criminals or people with proper licensing, which is expensive, not inducing the actual automatic weapon.

I don't think many people realize just how expensive automatic rifles are. A full auto M4 or MP5 will run you tens of thousands of dollars....no average joe will be able to buy one anyway.

Of course not. The U.S. government designed it like this. That's what this post is about, are they supposed to be protecting us from criminals? With their ever expanding list of what defines a criminal, I bet there's a handful of us in here who's (unknowingly) broken laws and could be defined as a criminal, or a terrorist by the U.S. government.

They know that more people are getting fed up with their B.S. and at some point won't tolerate it anymore. So they're gearing up local police forces to be able to quell the inevitable violence. Once they're sufficiently trained and equipped, we will see a major disaster causing the President to declare martial law and most of us will be powerless to be free anymore.

A free nation aught to have the means to defend themselves against tyranny. It's our right to have and bear arms, it's our responsibility and we shouldn't need "big brother" watching over us, telling us what we can and can't do 'because they know best'.

A government with the power to give us everything has the power to take it away, and that day is coming.

People have been divided among themselves and distracted for so long this has been creeping on us at least since 9/11.

Never forget 9/11 but also don't ever forget the Ohio state massacre when the National Guard (now part of the armed forces) shot & killed UNARMED students. That's not a conspiracy our government has murdered it's own civilians, it's a fact.

"When it gets down to the jiggy ... and lines of communication are cut ... a lot of people are going to die. They're going to be Americans who forgot the responsibilities of citizenship."

A lot of "Americans" never knew what the responsibilities of citizenship were in the first place.

Your statement about when it gets down to the jiggy reminds me of the question: What exactly are they preparing for? What ever the threat is, it must be a genuine humdinger!

I agree. The folks pulling 0bama's strings may have thought about going for the guns. The folks calling the shots from the other side 'appeared' to be gearing gun owners up for insurrection. Now, that's just my personal POV, but I'm no dummy either. Both sides want the guns. They just want them taken away on their terms.

The other 'big one' is the little guy's retirement. I think a concession was made there, and that concession was called 0bamacare. 0bamacare is not generating the money needed by the Dems. Nothing personal against the Dems, it's just that they're the controlling administration ATM. I'd rather have the Dems steal my money than Paul Ryan. It just looks like the Dems are reneging on a back-room deal you or I will never know anything about.

That thing pitting the IRS against the Tea Party ... clever. Slowing a gun-grab down by promoting 'Constitutional' Sheriffs ... absolute genius. Let's wait and see if 0bama gets impeached in the next month or so. The guys who bedded down with OPEC decades ago don't want to go into the night quietly.

I starred you because you made some good points, but your mistaken on many parts about automatics.

They are all but useless vs semi auto in every situation but suppressing fire.

We dont need suppressing fire, because of the sheer number of us vs. them means we will always have what the Marine corp first termed "fire superiority, meaning we are throwing more lead at them than they can throw back at us.

Meaning, they have to keep their heads down or they lose folks they cannot replace. Giving us complete superiority.

I dont know a single soldier I served with that can accurately shoot an automatic at range, I have never seen it done even at close range.

I qualified expert every time in my 6 years, I got to shoot full auto a few times at less than 20 meters, lol out of 30 rounds, about 6 hit the man target. At 30 meters, I would likely get the first 2 or maybe even 3 but no more.

Automatic is nothing but a bullet waster in most situations.

Well Obama *DID* say something like this..............



"We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set," Obama said. "We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

That plank in the future president's platform was quickly removed, but evidently not discarded. It seems that it was merely safely tucked away until a more opportune time.

Now we see, perhaps, then-Candidate Obama's intent re-emerging -- not through the creation of a voluntary service program, but through the co-opting of various government agencies to suppress those whom this administration perceives as enemies.

Remember Obama's Civilian National Security Force?



And many victims of this full blown authoritarian-totalitarian agenda actually voted *for* and *still* support Obama !!

The "Perfect" Posse Comitatus bypass.

Obama Civilian Security

www.youtube.com...



I remember him saying that. Just never understood why we would need this civilian militaristic force, if not to oppress us. The military fights and bullies outward from our nation by it's very nature.......so what will an internal force inside our country, focused on civilians do? (Was a rhetorical question, but the question should have been asked long ago).

You are right,the only auto I could handle was the BAR in prone position,everything else was just a waste of money and ammo.

Isn't that what the National Guard once was,before a certian president made them a part of the Armed forces? I seem to remember that they were refered to as citizen soldiers. Now they are used as if they are regular army.


Nail on the head. Well when they started calling it the National Guard. Constitutionally its a state guard and its justification falls under the 2nd amendment along with the peoples right to keep and bear. State guards started to get pulled into the federal mix during the civil war but there really is no constitutional position for the federal government to regulate state militias.

That is exactly what I was wondering Mianeye! Why do law enforcement personnel need MRAP vehicles? Their job is to protect the citizenry from the lawless, not do their best cosplay homage to the SS!

Bann assault rifles and watch the future get so grim and dire that a war will break out into the mass slaughter of the NRA and U.S. citizens.These people have no common sense.YOu have to start protecting schools and malls with better securty unfortunately and colleges.If an invasion would happen on American soil we would get wiped out.

All count down to Mark of the Beast anyways.

No, Obama's right. There's no need for Mr or Mrs Average to have an assault rifle on the street. Period.

Whats even more amazing these people count numbers of dead people instead of one dieing more people dieing is more hurtful.The bible teachings opposite.The bible teaches every single one of us are prescious.In Gods eyes it doe snot matter if it is millions or just 1.Why the government starts to become control addicts.The bizarre thing the more control the government gets the more mass of death happens.Because people turn government into God.

Like history repeating itself all over again with communism and socialistic rules.Cannot teach this to people.
