(The Olive) The gun grabbers in New York state have outdone themselves this time. In proposed new gun legislation, if a person wants to purchase a firearm, or renew a permit for a firearm – one will have to turn over their Internet search history and their social media passwords!
According to an article by Daisy Luther, police would be looking for evidence that the applicant used “racist or discriminatory language, threatened the safety of another person, inquired about or alluded to an act of terrorism,” or any other item or thing the investigating officer finds suspicious.
This new gun control law is headed down an extremely dangerous road, our personal freedom is literally on the line here – and if this bill passes, there may be no turning this around. The potential for abuse here is not only very real, it is almost 100% guaranteed – and I for one am not willing to bite this bullet.
Lets say “Joe” applies for a permit to purchase a firearm, and lets say “Joe” has had a known loud disagreement with his wife – no violence, just a shouting match. Joe could be denied the right to purchase a firearm.
Suppose you make some smart comments that of course you don’t mean on a social media site, we have all done this in the spirit of fun, being silly etc. Maybe a comment you made on social media is taken completely out of context, quite possibly on purpose. Well now, this kind of thing could cost you your God-given right to own a firearm.
How is any of this fair? Answer – it’s not! This is where our society is headed anywhere that Democrats are in control. Guns do not, nor have they ever; killed people – people kill people. Despite some of the toughest gun control laws in the nation, Chicago is the leader in killings and gun violence. So does gun control really work?
I can hear what some of you are thinking, that is New York, it has nothing to do with where I live. This writer is here to disabuse you of that notion; it has everything to do with you – no matter where you live in the U.S. Does anyone for one minute honestly think that if the Politicrats manage to pass a bill severely restricting an American citizens right to purchase a firearm – that said law will remain only in the state it was passed in? That’s like saying California will become a bastion of conservative values tomorrow – not going to happen.
In addition to this idiocy concerning reasons to keep guns from law-abiding people, a university professor in Maine pontificated on why it is Constitutionally acceptable to ban handguns! Uh, maybe this professor needs to carefully reread the Second Amendment?
The socialistic utopia includes the removal of guns from its citizens – wake up people! “It cannot happen in America” is an outdated, dead and false concept. It CAN happen in America, and the Politicrat zealots are moving ever closer to the reality of a socialistic America that welcomes the values of the zealot globalists.
If the values of America mean anything to you – now is the time to rise up and fight. Not with violence as the Left advocates, but with your vote, with your voice, with your articles, with your comments, with your calls to your Senators and Representatives, and with your prayers.
America, many of you have the false perception that civil war might happen, or more likely your view is that civil war will never happen, this is after all America. If you are one who shares these views – you have NO idea how wrong you are!
The new American civil war has already begun. How can I make that statement? Easy. Notice the Left’s push to take away your guns, notice the Left’s incitement and approval of violence – Antifa anyone? Notice the John Kerry’s of the U.S. all to willingly ready to give away your God-given rights (guns) to the United Nations? What about the persecution of Christians that has begun in this country? You say you are not a Christian, so – whatever. What and if YOU are next? What then?
This new civil war is being waged on social media and in the national media, as well as in the courts by the Politicrat social justice warriors masquerading as judges.
I will leave you with this thought: the government that controls the guns – controls the people. You good with that?
