If you have been paying attention over the last few days you may have noticed the news regarding Cyprus and now
. There is now talk about Italy instituting a 15% "wealth tax" which is
pretty much the same thing as deposit confiscation.
So, what does this have to do with guns?? Well, as of late, the question has been asked over and over again... "why does anyone need an AR-15?" or
"why does anyone need a 30 round magazine?"
The answer is simple... it's because of reasons like these. The people in these countries losing their savings are at the mercy of the power
establishment, and they have no way of stopping them. Here in America, we DO have a way of stopping it, and the power establishment here knows that.
Now that doesn't mean that the Fed Gov won't try to do this wealth confiscation here in America, because they are very arrogant after all, but
eventually a line in the sand will be drawn, for the final time, and then it will be time to make our founders proud, and I'll just leave it at
The other aspect to this is that this kind of deposit confiscation has a ripple effect throughout society, causing bank runs, riots, and many other
potentially dangerous situations. This is the primary reason why I not only need, but own SEVERAL 30 round magazines. I pray that day never comes,
but if it does I'll have the means of defending my property and my family.
