Kurt Hofmann: Schumer wants retailers to get potential 'assaul weapon' ban off to early start

Noting that sales of "assault weapons" are "skyrocketing," he acknowledges that any ban would be "undermined" by the vast number of Americans buying these guns. Perhaps of greater concern to him is the fact that the legal case for such a ban would also be "undermined."

Feinstein, Schumer, Obama, Holder, Bloomberg, and their whole gang of progressive/Marxist/socialists are tyrant wannabes. To them, anyone who does, or might, oppose their control over every aspect of our lives, is "a criminal" because they said so.

To quote a few of Obama and company's heroes, with explanatory comments in ( ):

"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun." - Mao
(They revere Mao and the way he ruthlessly grabbed power in China. The fact that he murdered about 100 million Chinese to do it is, to them, a "feature," not a "bug.")

"If the opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves. ... The only real power comes out of a long rifle. ... Everyone imposes his own system as far as his army can reach. ... We don't let them have ideas. Why would we let them have guns? ... The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic." — Joseph Stalin

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their fall by doing so.” -Adolph Hitler
(These psychopathic sociopaths in our government - and THEY ARE PRECISELY THAT, never make the mistake of doubting it - believe that they are anointed to be our rulers and that we are the equivalent of Hitler's "subject races.")

THOSE are the reasons why, and the sort of people who want to, disarm us.

These same people through DHS and other alphabet agencies have recently purchased over 1.8 BILLION rounds of ammo – enough to shoot every man, woman, and child in the country more than 4 times – ammo that’s illegal for military use under international law. Considering that you and I and all of the other US taxpayers are paying for all of this ammo, it's frighteningly reminiscent of the story of political prisoners' families being forced to pay for the bullets used to execute them ... isn't it?

If we allow these leftist control freaks to ignore and ultimately gut the 2nd Amendment, history will inevitably repeat itself. These "gun control" proposals have NOTHING to do with preventing crime, but EVERYTHING to do with CONTROL.

Hitler disarmed the Jews and others, then murdered about 15 million.
Stalin disarmed the Russians, them murdered about 40 million.
Mao disarmed the Chinese peasants, then murdered nearly 100 million.
The Turks disarmed the Armenians, then murdered 1.5-2 million.
Pol Pot disarmed the Cambodians and murdered millions.
Rwanda disarmed its ethnic groups, then murdered millions.
The list goes on … over 170 million people murdered BY THEIR OWN GOVERNMENTS in the 20th century – AFTER they allowed those governments disarmed them.

They ALL thought “It can’t happen here” – until they were disarmed and it started, then it was too late. Don't make the same mistake. Don't EVER let your government disarm you.

The Founders knew that government, if not constrained at every step, will continue to accumulate power and control until it becomes tyranny. That's why they feared standing armies and insisted that the "right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

"Never forget, even for an instant, that the one and only reason anybody has for taking your gun away is to make you weaker than he is, so he can do something to you that you wouldn’t let him do if you were equipped to prevent it. This goes for burglars, muggers, and rapists, and even more so for policemen, bureaucrats, and politicians." - Aaron Zelmanm
