It could never happen here

Got news for ya: it already did.

BREAKING NEWS: Seventy-Two Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation In Massachusetts. National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed by elements of a Para-military extremist faction.

Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw. Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement, which has been blamed for a number of terrorist acts, including the destruction of valuable cargo that had been located on ships in the Boston harbor.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals and cowards” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons after Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week.

Thank goodness history never, EVER repeats itself, right?

    1. 1775, April 19. And Gage sent the Regulars out to seize the Militia’s powder and shot, held in community storage areas. Didn’t work, and the community storage became past history – people no longer trusted His Majesty’s Government for some reason or other. About 244 years later, after a shooting in Las Vegas, where there was a call to seize semi-auto rifles, the President then, one Donald J Trump, was heard to say “I’ll sign an Executive Order, and I’ll have the National Guard go out and pick up the guns.” Just ever so casual like that, my ancestors in Massachusetts 244 years prior had objected to a similar Executive Order, at least one of them signing the Muster List at daybreak that day. It’s a cold day in Hell that Trump ever gets my vote after that, with his casual and reflexive disregard for the Second Amendment – even though he walked it back under fire, still, he said it…

      1. “was heard to say”

        You TDS nuts constantly lie. Prove he said it or you are lying.

        Hint for the normal people:
        Trump never said anything remotely like that. Just like he didn’t say all the other lies the deranged neverTrumpers make up.

        1. “Was heard to say” is a tell…

          Did he say it? Or did someone say he said it? “Was heard…” means the latter, and it’s hearsay. Coming from a bunch of Lying Liars and Enemy of the People it is definitively a lie.

          1. “…it is definitively a lie.”

            At this point in time, it’s clear that anything that makes Trump look bad will turn out to be false. If it’s a “quote”, it will be fabricated, truncated, or misleading in some form or fashion.
            Every time. Anyone believing the nonsense is simply deranged.

  1. “Trump was a gun-control advocate to the left of Hillary Rodham Clinton until shortly before he decided to run for president as a Republican. He was a supporter of a ban on so-called assault weapons, an advocate of waiting periods, and a critic of Republicans who “walk the NRA line.” Some of his associates already are worrying that Trump will revert to his old Manhattan Democrat ways on the question, because Trump’s passion is seeking the approval of crowds, especially the small crowd that edits the New York Times”

    “President Donald Trump hit a nerve with gun-rights enthusiasts this week after suggesting firearms should be confiscated from potentially dangerous people without a court’s approval, remarks that raised concerns among conservatives about his respect for the concept of due process.

    “I like taking the guns early,” Trump said during a televised meeting on gun laws at the White House on Wednesday. “To go to court would have taken a long time.”

    His remarks cut to a visceral fear of the most ardent supporters of gun rights: the government seizing weapons from law-abiding citizens. It’s the basis for the defiant bumper-sticker slogan the NRA popularized: “I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands.”

    Trump’s dismissal of due process prompted calls to Congress and a snap visit to the White House late Thursday by top officials of the National Rifle Association. Chris Cox, the group’s top lobbyist, assured supporters in a tweet after the meeting that Trump had backpedaled and supports “the Second Amendment” and “strong due process.”

    White House spokespeople didn’t respond Friday to inquiries about Trump’s Wednesday remarks or Cox’s statement.

    David Kopel, a gun-rights supporter who is research director at the Independence Institute in Denver, mocked Trump’s position as “lose your rights today, followed by due process that will take years to resolve.”

    Pence Divide
    The incident also revealed an exceedingly rare divide between Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. The former Indiana governor, a social conservative with an “A” voting record from the NRA, tried to nudge Trump away from provoking the gun lobby’s supporters during Wednesday’s White House meeting as participants discussed so-called gun violence restraining orders.

    “Allow due process, so that no one’s rights are trampled,” Pence said during the meeting, in which a bipartisan group of lawmakers discussed a legislative response to school shooting that killed 17 people last month in Parkland, Florida. “But the ability to go to court, obtain an order, and then collect not only the firearms, but any weapons in the possession of that individual.”

    Trump disagreed. A party to hundreds of lawsuits, he argued it is too risky to wait for a court to act when a potentially dangerous person has a gun.

    “Or, Mike, take the firearms first and then go to court,” Trump said. “You could do exactly what you’re saying, but take the guns first, go through due process second.”

    And Trump did say what I alleged, I’d have to do a search of archived facebook postings from the time of the Las Vegas shootings back in 2017, but you can see from the quotes above about ignoring due process and simply confiscating guns that the quote isn’t far off the mark. Simply being put on a no-fly list would make you a target, that’s another remark he made. Trump isn’t who you think he is, back before his win in 2016, his family and the Clintons were close friends, in fact there’s some evidence that Hillary put him up to the 2016 run, on the theory that he would be easy to beat. Miss “Springtime for Hitler” miscalculated, boy, was she surprised, and so was DJT, who had made plans to jet off to Scotland for a golfing vacation the day after the election, having made no plans for a transition whatsoever. Oooops. But Trump was a longstanding Democrat for decades before he became a Republican in 2015 – in fact in 1992, he became a “Friend of Bill” and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was a leading contributor to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation – during Trump’s term in office, and during Jared’s “service” as Trump’s chief of staff or whatever he was. And I could go on.

    1. “And Trump did say what I alleged…”

      No, he didn’t. It’s a fucking lie.
      And then you go on to promote the NeverTrump National Review, an anti-American crowd of liars. You’re all deranged.

      We don’t have to guess, we have a track record. Four years of Trump.

      Who hates Trump? Who will do anything to STOP TRUMP? And why?
      That’s the side you and “national pos review” are on.

    2. “in fact there’s some evidence that Hillary put him up to the 2016 run…”

      There is more than “some evidence” that you and all the neverTrumpers are deranged mentally ill deep state marxists.

      “National Review”
      You and they belong together.

  2. One man is hated and feared by the marxist democrat party.
    One man is hated and feared by the GOPe.
    One man is hated and feared by the deep state.
    One man is hated and feared by the CIA.
    One man is hated and feared by the FBI.
    One man is hated and feared by the DOJ.
    One man is hated and feared by nearly the entire Senate and House.
    One man is hated and feared by 90% of the residents of the DC area.

    One man is hated and feared by the Federal government so greatly they cooked up a fake investigation of four years running accusing the man of collaborating with Russia to steal an election.

    One man is hated and feared by the Federal government so greatly they lied to the FISA courts in order to pursue a fake investigation.

    One man is hated and feared by the Federal government so greatly they appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the man, with no basis for doing so. A fishing expedition.

    One man is hated and feared by the Federal government so greatly they loosed a virus upon the world and created fear so great the people allowed them to shut down the economy and lock them out of their places of work and worship. They murdered old people by spreading the virus to them intentionally, all to create hysteria.

    One man is hated and feared by the Federal government so greatly they stole the 2020 presidential election, and they laugh in our faces and didn’t even bother hiding it.

    One man is hated and feared by the republican party so greatly they worked to elect democrat party members over anyone that didn’t disavow that man in the 2022 midterm elections.

    One man, just one man, is hated and feared by the foes of liberty.

    One man, just one man, is risking his life and his fortune for his country.

    If you are opposed to that man, then whose side are you on?
