Timing is everything, and a new book from Joshua Horwitz and Casey Anderson ties in well with recent “reports” from the Department of Homeland Security on “rightwing extremists” and the one from the Missouri Information Analysis Center on the “modern militia movement.”
Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, and Anderson, a Washington, D.C. attorney, call their book Guns, Democracy and the Insurrectionist Idea. So, in addition to being demonized as “rightwing extremists” and militia whackos, now gun rights activists – people who stand in defense of their fundamental civil right to keep and bear arms that is protected by the Second Amendment – are “insurrectionists.”



Amazon.com offers this description of the book, which reads like it was provided by the authors: “And when gun enthusiasts talk about Constitutional liberties guaranteed by the Second Amendment, they are referring to freedom in a general sense, but they also have something more specific in mind---freedom from government oppression. They argue that the only way to keep federal authority in check is to arm individual citizens who can, if necessary, defend themselves from an aggressive government.”
That certainly appears to be an accurate assessment of the individuals who issued the following statement: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”*



This is obviously just a product of the same mentality that brought us the MIAC report and that DHS report. This blanket branding of homegrown extremism just to cover the governments bases if/when they decide to go full bore on the American people.

The demonization of the gun-owner isnt anything new. Quite the contrary, is getting pretty damn old.

What better way to take away the U.S. Constitutional right of owning and using firearms than to brand it a homegrown terrorist trait? Has anyone else noticed the socialists are using fear tactics more and more to try to sway people into turning against each other?
