This weekend in Southern Arizona a check point was set up by Federal agents. Their mission: to make sure those shooting in the desert area were picking up their spent shells and keeping our desert clean.
As you watch the video note that those interviewed were quite comfortable with this intrusion of privacy. “It’s all for the betterment of society…”
But is it? According to the report the agents were just doing some educational information checks. Yet, they did arrest four people on outstanding warrants. Some may wonder what the real end goal is. There is no doubt many in the Obama administration would prefer that no citizen could own a gun. So,are they just cleaning up the desert or as second amendment advocates might question are they wanting to keep track on who has what guns?
I am reminded of the frog in the skillet metaphor as told in The Story of B: If you drop a frog in a pot of boiling water, it will of course frantically try to clamber out. But if you place it gently in a pot of tepid water and turn the heat on low, it will float there quite placidly. As the water gradually heats up, the frog will sink into a tranquil stupor, exactly like one of us in a hot bath, and before long, with a smile on its face, it will unresistingly allow itself to be boiled to death.
Step 1. We’re trying to educate people and get their attention.
Step 2. We’ll ask to see your weapons.
Is the government just trying to help or are we being naive and will our acceptance of these gradual changes will allow us to be ‘boiled to death’?
