"Congress have no power to disarm the militia.
Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birth-right of an American ...the unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."
---Tench Coxe (Feb 20, 1788)
My name is Edgar J. Steele. This is a Nickel Rant.
If you have been allowed the privilege legally to own a gun, relish it. You may not possess it much longer. Notice that I made no mention of any "right" to gun ownership.
In fact, you may already have lost it and not know it. You may well risk being arrested and imprisoned at any moment on "illegal" weapons charges.
Do you honestly think that there is one single gun-owning American who is not at risk? There are over 20,000 illegal weapons laws on the books in America. For example, if you have been convicted of a misdemeanor in which you could have served more than two years in jail under the maximum sentence, you cannot own a gun. Trespass on government land and lose your privilege to own a gun.
He seemed like such a nice man...
"He seemed like such a nice man, too," your neighbors will be heard saying in the background, as the TV cameras pan over what will be described by the racially- and sexually-ambiguous anchorman as your "armory," your "cache" of weapons (perhaps 2 pistols, a shotgun, a couple of rifles and a few hundred rounds for each, a modest assemblage at best by North Idaho standards). "Fully armed and ready for a war that never came, Mr. White will be arraigned Thursday..."
It can't happen to you, you say? If you lived in New Orleans a couple of years ago, they took your guns without giving any reason whatsoever.
The Need for Guns Explained
Let me explain something about guns - and consider that this comes from somebody (me) viewed as a rank amateur by friends who are true gun aficionados:
I need a shotgun for crows and other predators, else we would have no smaller birds hereabouts.
I need a "bush rifle" with a scope for coyotes spotted at a distance, else we would have no chickens, cats or other small domestic or farm animals.
I need a .22-caliber rifle to dispose of the random raccoon that also kills my children's cats and relishes the occasional chicken.
I need a rifle with open sights in a decent-size caliber to put down the occasional suffering horse or other farm animal or to quickly dispatch a steer or pig destined for the freezer.
I need a 30.06 or better hunting rifle (preferably one with and one without a scope) in case the increasingly-rare black bear or not-so-rare mountain lion decides to visit my back yard yet again.
I need a .45 caliber handgun to carry when out and about on the back acreage, just in case.
Lessee now, that's 6 long guns and one handgun, plus ammunition with which to practice (use it or lose it - shooting is not like riding bicycles).
And I'm not even a hunter, like virtually everybody else I know around here.
Mind you, I have nothing against hunting, nor should you if you eat Big Macs or wear a leather belt. I just don't happen to care for tramping around in the cold and the wet in the early-morning hours, risking life and limb to bring home something for the freezer that, when cut and wrapped, won't fill even the swinging door shelves and then tastes flat, metallic and stringy ("gamey," is how it is put). I prefer grain-fed beef and sleeping in, thank you very much. Hunters need lots more paraphernalia, including different rifles in different calibers and configurations.
It's kind of like skiing, which once quite literally was my life during the winter when I wasn't actually working. I'll spare you the reasons, but I needed eight pairs of skis, of varying lengths, flexibility, sidecut, etc., just to handle all conditions I might encounter. Frankly, twice that number would have been nice, but I didn't let myself get carried away.
So much for bare necessity beyond the threat from other human beings.
I also need at least four pistols for self defense, pistols that I actually carry on my person.
But, then, I and my wife and even my little children get genuine death threats from the Chosen, after all. (Not Israelis and not Zionists, notice, but American Jews - my investigators identified a couple of them, though the FBI then did nothing.)
I need a belt-holstered, large-caliber .45 that will put somebody on the ground if I manage to hit them only in the hand, for example. I need a lighter 9 mm for a fanny pack so that it isn't so obvious to all the girly boys when I go out for an evening. I need another 9 mm for my desk drawer, within reach at this very moment in case someone comes bursting in downstairs while I write this. I need a small pistol that fits in my bathrobe pocket when I answer the door late at night. And others, such as the one in my bed's headboard, too.
Pistols are necessary, but not as important as long rifles. I once read that pistols should be used only to fight your way to where you keep your rifle. Not a bad way to put it.
So, if they ever come and arrest me for anything and lay out all my rifles and pistols on the dining table, together with the ammunition, imagine the scene. "Fully armed and ready for a war that never came, Mr. Steele will be arraigned Thursday..." See how that happens? If I, or anybody who actually knows guns, actually wished to prepare for those TV-announcer-described "wars," we would be putting up hundreds of weapons and millions of rounds of ammunition.
In fact, if I didn't have any guns, how on earth would I even get by out here?
Wherever Guns are Outlawed, Only Outlaws have Guns
Living in the city is no different, what with street gangs armed to the teeth with truly illegal weapons. Only the law-abiding, unarmed citizen is at risk in that environment. Recall the scene from Crocodile Dundee, wherein Mick says to the thug, "Pshaw, that's no knife. Now this...this is a knife," as he pulls out his foot-long blade and chases off the would-be muggers.
If criminals knew that American girly boys all were armed with weapons they knew how to use, things would be very different on the streets of America's cities. But, then, in far too many cities, we don't have even the privilege to carry weapons, do we?
Australia banned private handgun ownership a few years ago and crime statistics promptly shot through the roof. Law-abiding citizens began to defend themselves with swords, so they banned them, as well. Next, I suppose they will ban handheld rocks in the Land of Oz.
Rights vs. Privileges
Used to be, gun ownership was a right, not a privilege.
That was when the US Constitution was considered to be more than simply a "damned piece of paper" (to quote America's Buffoon-in-Chief, George Bush).
That was when the Second Amendment still carried some weight with congressmen and courts.
That was when America still was inhabited by real men, not the sheepish girly boys now allowing her transformation into a corporate dictatorship.
Sane Enough to Kill for America
Larry Pratt just brought to my attention a very disturbing piece of legislation with his article entitled "Veterans Disarmament Act to Bar Vets from Owning Guns," now being introduced simultaneously in the House and the Senate. This odious little piece of girly-boy foot stomping will make it illegal for any veteran diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) ever again to own a gun, despite any evidence whatsoever that such makes them the least bit at risk.
Have you ever been prescribed anti-depressants or, even, mild mood enhancers like Valium? Guess what your diagnosis was to support that prescription. Yep. Almost certainly PTSD. Ever told your doctor about being stressed out over bills you are having trouble paying, including his? Guess what he wrote into your chart. The Act described by Pratt provides for all those supposedly private medical records that the government has been collecting to be reviewed. You are about to become a criminal for having something with which to scare off predators with any number of legs.
I'll bet that you didn't hear about that NRA Director stating that assault rifles and rifle magazines holding more than five cartridges should be outlawed, either, did you? Incidentally, the term "assault rifle" now includes all semi-automatic rifles, which is about 99% of all rifles in existence in America today.
Get Counseled, Lose Your Guns
I recently attended a legal CLE (Continuing Legal Education) seminar at which a lawyer/psychologist panelist noted that a great many people attending domestic counseling now are forbidden from owning guns by virtue of merely having participated in counseling sessions. Domestic counseling now is becoming mandatory in most states for all accused of the mildest form of "domestic disturbance," not to mention each and every separation/divorce action, counseling that eventually will strip participants of the privilege of gun ownership.
The Usual Suspects
He Says Oil, You say Zionist, I Say Jew
Now that the Iraq war properly is being viewed as for the benefit of Israel, with oil being the old cynical reason, it is time to tell the full truth. America's "War on Terrorism" is for the protection and benefit of Jews. No, not all Jews, of course, but so many that the difference is one without a distinction. That is why America, the world's second-largest Jewish stronghold, is doing Israel's bidding, of course. Come on, you know it is the truth. What's more, I know you know it, even if you claim otherwise. Have some integrity and admit it.
That's the whole point of America's stealth gun confiscation, being promoted and enforced by Jewish politicians, Jewish media barons, Jewish psychologists, Jewish lawyers and Jewish judges. To benefit and protect Jews, of course, as they tighten their stranglehold upon America and the common man. I know it. Soon you will, too. Already, at least you suspect it, don't you? Please have the integrity to admit that much.
New America. An idea whose time has come.
