Guns, Terrorists, Watch Lists and Governmental Failure
SAN BERNARDINO, CA — The husband-and-wife killers were not under FBI scrutiny before the massacre, said a second U.S. official, who likewise was not authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity. SOURCE
These 2 Muslim murderers were NOT on an FBI watch list according to the story but I would bet my bottom dollar that I am on a watch list, as are many of my friends, simply because we are Conservative American patriots, and because I, am a blogger that speaks out and is well known for being a lot less than kind in my assessment of the Obama regime. Oh, and I am pretty sure that my owning a few guns plays into the federal watch list thing too.
I have never dropped the hammer on anyone that wasn’t truly deserving, I have never threatened the security of the United States, I am not an anarchist, I have never tried to overthrow, nor have I ever advocated the overthrow of our government, I have however, openly stated that our government needs to be revamped.
Not that our Constitution needs to be changed so much or the government itself per se, but those that run the government, they need to be changed out regularly, much for the same reason you change a baby’s diaper.
That’s not a threat; it IS a statement of FACT.
Nonetheless, you can bet that I, and many like me are on some government watch-list as a potential terrorist threat. Two actual terrorists weren’t on that list but anyone that has the BALLS to speak out against Obama, the Socialism he espouses or the Islamic beliefs he embraces is deemed to be a threat to the nation. Go figure.
I did hear Hillary Clinton say something tonight that literally shocked me, I actually agreed with her when she said, “If you’re on a *no-fly* list you need to be on a *no buy* list for guns” and I can agree with that, except for this one little thing that my friend and neighbor Capt. Ron mentioned when we talked Thursday afternoon.
Ron said, and I paraphrase, ‘I can agree with that too but what if she were in power and had ALL gun owners placed on a no fly list and used that to turn around the gun laws???’
Capt. Ron is a smart guy.
And on that thought I want to share this as well.
Man’s hoard of nearly 5,000 guns shows ease of amassing arms in U.S
PAGELAND, SC – As sheriff’s investigators threaded past the battered cars, cast-off tires and rusted farm equipment cluttering Brent Nicholson’s front yard, there was no hint of the sinister stockpile hidden behind his windowless front door.
Inside, the guns were everywhere: rifles and shotguns piled in the living room, halls and bedrooms; handguns littering tables and countertops. Outside, when they rolled up the door on the pre-fab metal garage, more arms spilled out at their feet.
“This has completely changed our definition of an ass-load of guns,” said Chesterfield County Sheriff Jay Brooks. Six weeks after the discovery, officers are still cataloging the weapons, many of which have proved stolen, and the final tally is expected to be close to 5,000. “I don’t know if there’s ever been (a seizure) this big anywhere before,” Brooks says. SOURCE
If any of the guns are/were suspected of being stolen I am sure that’s all the justification the LEOs needed to go in and seize the lot of them and sort the matter out but who is in charge of deciding how many guns you can own?
At what point do you go from being an evil gun owner, say like the guy that owns 2 or 3 guns that the Liberals believe to be evil, to becoming a VERY EVIL, sinister even, gun owner that has an arsenal in his home? And what defines an arsenal? Or, as this Sheriff Jay Brooks said so eloquently, “This has completely changed our definition of an ass-load of guns,” How many guns defines an *ass load*?
Enquiring minds want to know.
