A Call to Vigilance

July 8, 2014 - 9:19 AM

I am convinced that Barack Obama has no intention of leaving America armed when he leaves office. If there is any way, hook, crook or presidential fiat that he can use to lay the groundwork for the confiscation of privately-owned firearms, he will do it.

The dwindling days of a lame duck president are a dangerous time as has been proven again and again as last minute applications of executive privilege have been applied to some very dubious situations and I believe that the legacy Obama craves, above all others, is the disarming of America.

It will take intensive vigilance on the parts of the few politicians still left on Capitol Hill who are not willing to sell their birthrights for a bowl of porridge, especially in the Senate where all it would take to put American firearms under the control of the United Nations is the ratification of a UN treaty.

Don't make the mistake of thinking that there are not a significant number of Senators who would be willing to trample your second amendment right, that was proven a while back when a senatorial vote was taken to abolish the treaty, to take it off the table permanently and 46 Senators voted against the move.

I think, at least in the area where I live, federal attempts to confiscate guns would result in a quasi-civil war as people down home believe they are guaranteed the right to own guns by the constitution and that no global monstrosity like the United Nations should have any say over their lives at all.

The Obama administration has shown its true colors and its obvious immaturity by knowingly putting high-powered firearms in the hands of the murderous drug cartels - Fast and Furious - while doing their best to disarm American citizens.

The United Nations' reason for this treaty has nothing to do with reducing violence and everything to do with making the people of this nation defenseless against anything that is shoved down our throats.

And, if you think Obama has the interests of American citizens on his mind, ask the families of the four men killed in Benghazi and the parents of Sgt. Andrew Tahmooreesi, the U.S. Marine being held in a Mexican prison.

My best guess is, and I hope and pray that I'm wrong, that America will see Islamic fanatics openly attacking vulnerable spots in this nation - the influx of American Jihadists in Iraq and Syria almost guarantee it. When they return to America, they will bring with them the latest bomb-making skills and a fanatic hatred for everything and everybody that does not adhere to Islam.

Already, there have been test runs on the interruption of our power grids and you can bet the ranch that every strategic installation in this country is under surveillance.

It's coming folks, and if Obama and his cohorts have their way, America will be defending itself with slingshots and water pistols.

And, even if Obama is successful in confiscating the legally owned guns of law-abiding citizens, it would only mean easy pickings for the criminals who own illegal, unregistered guns they couldn't confiscate them because there'd be no record of purchase and they're certainly not going to turn them in voluntarily.

So, we'd have a nation of families at the mercy of whatever thug wanted to come in to their homes to rape, pillage and take anything they wanted.

This is a very serious issue and those of us who value our second amendment rights need to keep a close eye on those we elect to represent us, since it could mean the difference to being able to protect your home and family or being helpless in the face of thugs and terrorists.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America
