Since 1994, politicians and bureaucrats within the Federal government have been implementing a clearly defined domestic disarmament policy that is
designed to further the long term goal of centralized power. The overall trend in government growth at the Federal level has been a deliberately
generated and sustained effort.
Incremental gun control has been implemented as an understated policy since the early 1970's. Public officials at all levels seem to be thinking
ahead. their intent seems clear. To achieve total power, they must do more than legislate to their advantage. They need to make sure that the general
public can't contested their actions by a successful insurrection or revolt. History shows us that a disarmed population makes for a docile and
politically compliant society.
House Resolution 1022 was introduced by Representative Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) in February of 2007. Titled, "Assault Weapons Ban And Law Enforcement
Protection Act of 2007," this revised 1994 law would impose drastic restrictions on sales and ownership of all firearms, regardless of type. This bill
and its aggressive language represent a renewed effort on the part of social and political forces that maneuver behind-the-scenes to promote central
authority. It's the next step in their domestic disarmament policy.
Points of contention:
a. The specific makes and models prohibited by name under this law has been greatly expanded when compared to list of guns to be banned in the
original 1994 law.
b. The revised law expands the definition of what it means for a weapon to be "semi-automatic." the end result seems to be an effort to include makes
and models of guns that simple look like they might be military-grade weapons.
c. Under the terms of this law, all sales of large capacity magazines will be forbidden. Please note that the law defines a large capacity magazine as
being anything that loads more than five rounds. Private sales of designated assault weapons are also prohibited. Conversion kits will be outlawed.
d. If you own a post 1994 ban firearm, you will not be allowed own a pistol grip or barrel shroud that would cause the weapon to resemble a known
e. Complicated language buried deep inside the bill authorizes the U.S. Attorney General to be "the decider" of what is and is not a semi-automatic or
military-grade firearm. The insinuation is that because all guns have their basis in military design, all guns could fall under the A.G. authority to
classify and ban.
In today's uncertain world, Federal officials at all levels stress compliance and conformity in the face of trans-national terrorism. Americans are no
longer encouraged to be observant and brave. We're told to be non-confrontational while we wait for official help from sanctioned government agencies.
The creeping conspiracy of growing government power attacks us from many different directions. Future Federal firearms policy seems destined to
dispute and destroy our second amendment traditions whether we like it or not.
The strongest argument put forward by pro-Federalist gun control advocates rests on the assertion that the second amendment is a provisional law,
subject to the interpretations of State laws which are in turn subordinate to Federal law. It's that subordination to Federal authority that gun
control advocates rely on to push legislation like HR 1022.
Federalism has been alive and well in America since the Constitution was ratified (1789). for more than 230 years, many of our best thinkers have
wrestled with the question of State's rights and the implied supremacy of the Federal government which some say can be found in the finer language of
the Constitution itself.
Anti-Federalist forces have been fighting a losing battle on all fronts since the end of the Civil War (1861-1865). 21st Century political theorists
are in general agreement that organized advocacy for small and efficient government is dead, as a form of national-level political ideology. The
mid-term election results of 2006 lend credibility to the notion that Republicanism is no longer a force to be reckoned with.
Recent trends in legislation suggest that the conspirators who have sought to disarm the American people may now operate in the open as legitimate
advocates for their point of view. As a political agenda item that makes the leap from plot to program, we should expect that HR 1022 will be the
first of many pieces of legislation enacted to finalize the process of population control.
A brief examination of the "gun control time line," which is an online resource provided by the Federal government, will provide the casual researcher
with a basis for understanding the scope, scale, and legislative rhythm that has been employed up 'til now. (see, additional news links) McCarthy's
"new" assault weapons ban would build on every legal precedent that has come before it. As conspiracies go, this one is about as real as they come.
With anti-Federalist forces in disarray, there are no organized political groups or special interests in existence at this time which could or would
offer serious resistance to this long-term policy. As an author, I find myself in slim company when it comes to stating a coherent opposition to this
not-so-hidden agenda. Federal officials have a long-standing tradition of retaining political and legislative power. They very seldom if ever give
back any of the authority they have taken.
House Resolution 1022 embodies every hostile legal maneuver that has come before it. It signals the start of a new phase in a much larger plan, and
its long-term implications are not hard to guess at. This isn't plausible protection. It's premeditated, preemptive, and prescribed as "necessary" for
the benefit of a chosen few.
