Secretive "Gun Control" Cabal Threatens Liberty by its Agenda, and by its Methods

One of Kurt's JPFO columns that I missed.
JPFO contributor Claire Wolfe has long argued that, "Secret government is tyrannical government." It's tyrannical, because only government by the people is not tyrannical. And government is not "by the people" when "the people" are not even allowed to know what their servants in government are doing. ASLGVP's forcible citizen disarmament agenda is an attack on liberty, as are the methods by which they seek to advance that agenda.

Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy . . . censorship. When any government, or any Church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects “This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,” the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything--- you can’t conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.

I feel the same way about the NRA and its "local affiliate" subordinates. They hide out behind the scenes, operating in closed arenas making deals that only "special" people can access it even know about after the fact.

While they might still be able to hide some things - more and more people are figuring out THAT this nefarious action is taking place and realizing that those folks aren't representing the folks. Instead they are becoming exactly what they claim to oppose.

They are taking their thirty prices of silver and selling out the folks to get it. They are becoming gun controllers. They are becoming tyrants themselves, thinking that they can do so endlessly with impunity.

Oh what a rude awakening they have coming.....

A secretive enemy is an enemy that is not at full strength. The best way to bring a secretive enemy into public view is to force their hand.

The best way to do that while still maintaining the moral high ground is to do something non-violent that is urgent or inviting enough for them to drop the facade of civility. Cliven Bundy is a great example.

Once in full view, some members of the enemy cabal will defect or at least resign, at minimum for self preservation.

The rest, having lost their legitimacy and large portions of their ranks, will be easy.
