August 8, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Any observer of politics could have seen this coming, especially given the recent revelation that Eric Holder/Team Obama's Fast and Furious program was intended to whip up public sentiment in support of abridging Second Amendment rights.
Infringing a citizen's rights to own firearms has been a staple of the left for over 100 years. Dictators and their wannabes are absolutely correct to fear an armed populace; such a people will not be dominated by the jack boot set without extracting an unacceptable toll on those bent on forced collectivization - a track this country is perilously approaching.
Examples of the gun grabbing mentality are myriad, consider the confiscatory tactics taken by the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany as being among the most obvious examples of suppressing the private ownership of firearms.
The modern neo-Marxist left, the people from MoveOn, Daily Kos, People for the American Way, Media Matters, the Brady crowd and probably 75% of the Democrat party are of the same ilk
These folks are ultra hard leftists, in fact they are neo-Marxists as far as their intention of imposing their will on all of us via the almighty federal hand. These drones consider themselves smarter than you and as a result they want to be both mommy, daddy and if need be chief executioner [incidentally, they have much more in common with Marxism - specifically the labor theory of value and their own vague concept of historicism - than the simple desire for power but exploring those similarities is beyond the scope of this writing].
These people don't give a rat's ass about the Constitution or about rights endowed by a Creator, they find such notions a joke, though they often do have to pay them lip service, leftists never being able to tell the truth regarding their true ideology. Their entire political world revolves around the pursuit of control - yours and mine.
Despite numerous assurances and claims to the contrary, these totalitarian minded activists want to confiscate all privately held firearms. They also know that this is impossible in today's political climate with groups like the NRA kicking ass when need be, which is often.
One of the groups quickly taking advantage of what they perceive as a political opportunity is MoveOn, a Soros funded group which hates traditional America. As an aside, MoveOn has famously stated that it bought the Democrat party years ago. Though this is an obvious hyperbole, it has contains a large kernel of truth.
So it was not at all shocking, that over the weekend we received the following breathless notification from MoveOn's Berkeley crazies:
"Dear MoveOn member,
Good Morning America recently reported that the shooter in Aurora, Colorado, had an AR-15 assault rifle, which can hold upwards of 100 rounds. The last report was that more than 50 people were wounded and 12 killed. While it is true that people kill people and that guns do not shoot themselves, it is also true that this kind of mass execution would not be possible without such high-capacity weapons. How many people have to die before we ban assault weapons?
That's why I created a petition on SignOn.org to Congress and President Obama, which says:
Congress should reinstitute the federal ban on assault weapons.

This petition was created on SignOn.org, the progressive, nonprofit petition site. SignOn.org is sponsored by MoveOn Civic Action, which is not responsible for the contents of this or other petitions posted on the site. Ellen Davis didn't pay us to send this email—we never rent or sell the MoveOn.org list.

This notice appears to be one of, if not the first shot in the rekindled war to deny American's the ability to defend their kith and kin. It's not at all surprising that there is similar chatter coming out of DC, including President Obama's recent statement calling for "common sense" gun laws, always a red flag when one understands that his version of common sense would not be foreign to Mussolini.
This concept fall neatly in their expanisve reading of the "common good," which would blow a such a large hole in the U.S. Constitution that a convoy of 18 wheelers could be driven through it.
In the upcoming days we will once again be subjected to Democrat politicians in high dudgeon demanding stricter laws controlling firearms.
Of course ignored in this push and pull is the obvious truism that only the lawful follow the law and are by definition not the offenders in these tragic mass casualty horrors.
The sad truth about human nature is that criminals will always find ways to obtain firearms or other weapons whereby to put into play their evil intent.
There are numerous methods to harm large numbers of people that do not rely at all on firearms. I will not probe them here, but most anyone with a bit of thought can probably devise other methods to effect such madness.
No, total confiscation of all firearms wouldn't stop mass mayhem - if you can remember back to September 11, 2001 nearly 3,000 American were murdered by Islamic terrorists and the weapon of choice had nothing to do with the pulling of triggers or the reloading of empty magazines.
Those with this level of malice tend to be crafty and their range of options nearly boundless.
The latest gun grabbing move is designed then not prevent senseless violence and increase public safety, it's simply about castrating traditional America's last line of defense against tyranny.
