What You'll See in the Rebellion
When illusion of the government’s invincibility and infallibility is broken, the hunters will become the hunted.
Unnamed citizens and federal agents will be the first to die,
and they will die by the dozens and maybe hundreds, but famous politicians will soon join them in a spate of revenge killings, many of which will go unsolved.
Ironically, while the gun grab was intended to keep citizens from preserving their liberties with medium-powered weapons,
it completely ignored the longer-ranged rifles perfect for shooting at ranges far beyond what a security detail can protect, and suppressed .22LR weapons proven deadly in urban sniping in Europe and Asia.
While the Secret Service will be able to protect the President in the White House,
he will not dare leave his gilded cage except in carefully controlled circumstances. Even then he will be forced to move like a criminal. He will never be seen outdoors in public again. Not in this country.
The 535 members of the House and Senate in both parties that allowed such a law to pass would largely be on their own;
the Secret Service is too small to protect all of them and their families, the Capitol Police too unskilled, and competent private security not particularly interested in working against their own best interests at any price.
The elites will be steadily whittled down, and if they can not be reached directly,
the targets will become their staffers, spouses, children, and grandchildren. Grandstanding media figures loyal to the regime would die in droves, executed as enemies of the Republic

I would hope it never comes to this but can see the possibility of it happening as written. One of the hopes would be that as history has shown every tyrant has had one or a few on the inside that would or could try to carry out a coup.

Since this country consists of the hardcore Leftists and and like thinkers on the right, we'll see more hardening of positions.
The Left is going after the Constitution, which IS the Country. Expect a fight.
The Left won't quit, the Right better not.
As for the Moderates aka Independents standing in the middle is a dangerous place.

The only thing the middle ground gets you, is shot at from both sides.

My father raised me on the idea that communism was the most evil force in the world. And they would stop at nothing to get what they wanted. Why do some people wantt to rule the world? They are going to die within 89-90 years and turn to dust so what is the point? Why would someone what to be tyrant? I don't want to rule anyone and I don't want anyone to rule me.

Sadly most of you think for some reason that the republicans care about the constitution, limited government or your freedom. They do not. And don't give me that bullshit "they are not as bad as the democrats" yes they are.

Sadly, Potsie, you are correct.

I posted the following comment at Bob's site:
Well, nice try, Bob. But here is what will really happen. Congress passes the law, the NRA et. al. scream about it and then ... nothing happens.
Some people affected (no more than 20 percent) comply with the turn-in order. The rest don't comply.
And they don't organize, they don't form insurgent groups, they don't start assassinating politicians. They just hide their guns and continue with daily life as before.
Another American revolution over such a law? Not a chance. Not for this reason nor any other. The American people decided beginning in the 1930s that we would surrender our sovereignty to the federal government and we have been doing so fervently and devotedly since then. Obama is merely running the end game. The vast majority - let me repeat, the vast majority - of Americans are fully sheepled now and will not forcefully resist any additional oppressive measure by this administration nor any other to follow.
A better bet would be for the remaining liberty lovers to start now to take over selected state legislatures and governorships, preferably of adjoining states, and lay the political groundwork for interstate unity and the revival of nullification doctrine, dead though Andrew Jackson made it.
This makes the federals the reactor rather than pro-actor and places them more publicly in the lawless role.
Remember that the Supreme Court ruled in the 1870s that the Constitutional question of secession was moot because events had shown that secession was a matter settled by force or arms, not courts. However, nullification was never tested either by the courts nor by force of arms. It was ended purely by President Jackson's threat personally to hang members of the South Carolina legislature. As S.C. was not being backed by other states, nullification soon withered away.
But what if today only four or five states united in declaring null and void certain federal enactments, based on common legislative acts passed by their legislatures and signed by their governors? What exactly can or would Obama do about it?
They most important thing to remember about beginning a revolution, whether peaceful or not, is that the King's Dominion must be, and must be seen as, the initiating actor. That's the position to put the federals in: opponents of the rule of law in which the states position themselves as its protector.

Has the secret service paid you a midnight visit yet?
Posted by: Jewej at January 1, 2013 8:46 AM
Sensing has a firmer grasp on our true condition than Owens, I am sorry to say. And we should notice that the Federals are no longer as demonstrably paranoid about firearms and patriots as they were even two or three years ago. Techniques from the recent foreign wars, added to the post 9-11 Fatherland Security learning curve in surveillance, have given them confidence in controlling rebellion. Drones, recognition software, and very sophisticated electronics are neutralizing the first purpose of the the amendment second. Men with rifles would be target practice for snipers in suits and suites.
Having a core of people who understand what liberty actually means and a venue in which to exercise it is far more dangerous to the permanence of the Utopian dreams than unorganized militia. Sensing's vision is exactly the kind of idea which has merit.
The human race divides itself politically between those who want to be controlled and those who don’t--Robert Heinlein
Let us divide ourselves once again.

Lovely work here at American Digest.
Starting the New Year as the old one was finished...with a raging hate-on.
A word of caution.
Don't peak too soon.
We haven't even had the Inauguration yet so try not use up all that bile before you really have something to complain about.
The rush of righteous indignation is addictive to be sure...
But resist the temptation! As my good friend james wilson might say, "moderation in all things..."
Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to Gerard and the company here present, may we all survive for another.
Happy New Sneer to Arthurstone.

James, a round of any caliber traveling in a ballistic arc doesn't give a damn what's in it's path.
And for the feckless Arthurstone, forget not that the American Revolution consisted of roughly 3% of the population. The rest stood to the side, moved to Canada or were Tories.
The first rule of all combat is never leave a live enemy behind you.

Don't worry about Arthur. His kind or his progeny are always among the part culled by one side or the other.

Touche Gerard. I have great confidence in the intersession of the Almighty. May he lays the foes of liberty low, as he has done so many times before.

I'll make it a point to drop by Queen Anne once the 'culling' gets underway.
You can bring me up to speed on the 'intersession (sic) of the almighty' as regards 'the foes of liberty'. Needs translating.
Uptown Espresso makes a good coffee.
And keep walking! It's great exercise.

Arthurstone may be an old sixties LSD traveler. He most definitely lives in a very small box.
Posted by: Terry at January 2, 2013 8:00 AM
Sadly, no. Some LSD might let, as we used to say, "the baby Jesus open his mind and shut his mouth." As it stands you can always tell when those to be culled have come to the end of their string when the spelling/(sic) citations show up.
