Gun manufacturing company, Olympic Arms, Inc. has turned down a solicitation to advertise in the FOP Journal, the publication of the National Fraternal Order of Police. The FOP very strongly supports the most extreme of gun control measures, highlighted by their jumping for joy over the Diane Feinstein proposal. Olympic Arms issued a statement with “grievances” listed as their reasons for refusing to advertise with the FOP. They went even farther, saying they will not sell to, advertise with, or generally do business with any other entity supporting gun control, including the federal government. Other firearm manufacturers have also refused to sell to government entities.
In a related matter, Police Chief Mark Kessler of the Gilberton Borough Police Department in Pennsylvania has called for civilian volunteers to join with his police department in building a “reserve force” (sorry Sheriff, I live in Oklahoma or I would sign up). The purpose of the group Kessler calls for is to provide aid to his police department should the need arise to resist Federal authorities when it comes to the Second Amendment and the confiscation of firearms from law abiding citizens. This is about as “grassroots” as grassroots can get, local citizens joining with local law enforcement to enforce the tenets of the Constitution. Many sheriffs across the nation have stood up for their oath to the residents of their counties and to their oath to The Constitution of the United States of America. I call on every sheriff in the nation to join the Constitutional Sheriffs Association and be a part of the defense of liberty in America. If you are a sheriff, please sign on. If you are a relative, or just a citizen, urge your county sheriff to take this stand with We the People.
Another large concern is the situation with ammunition. The government bought 1.6 BILLION, (yep, with a “B”) rounds of ammunition in just the last ten months of 2012 and are about to order 21.6 million more rounds in the next couple of months. They bought .40 caliber hollow points and 5.56/2.23 ammunition, causing shortages and outrageous prices. And to make a side point for the “low information voter” and those who may just not know anything about firearms and ammunition, hollow point ammunition cannot be used in war due to Geneva Convention bans on their use. Also, the use of such expensive ammunition for target practice is ludicrous. That only leaves one place to use those hollow points, and that is on We the People. They are designed to do maximum damage to the human body, not paper targets. The federal government has already amassed enough bullets to shoot each American citizen; that is every man, woman, and child in the nation, 5or 6 times. And they are putting out solicitations for even more “personal defense weapons”, that in my hands is an “assault weapon”. Same gun; different hands, different designation.
If the manufacturers of ammunition want to stand with We the People, and their own ultimate future, they will join in this refusal to sell to, and/or advertise with organizations and agencies that seek the demise of the firearms industry. These companies stand to make hundreds of millions of dollars, money that will come out of the pockets of working class patriots who believe that the right to keep and bear arms comes from God, not man. In their quest to put money in their pockets these manufacturers are enabling the subjugation of their own employees, along with the rest of us.
So essentially, I am buying “personal defense weapons” and a lot of ammunition; for bureaucrats, including the NOAA, our nation’s hurricane forecasters, and other bureaucrats who have no need for guns and ammunition at all, much less in such quantities. How many weather forecasters need a full-automatic military rifle to forecast a hurricane? In the process of this government largesse, the availability and cost of guns and ammunition to people like myself is becoming impossible. And where are these weapons actually going?
I call on all manufacturers of anything related to the 2nd Amendment to take this same stand. We the People have shown our willingness to support your companies. The sale of firearms, ammunition, and accessories have skyrocketed in the last few years as people become more and more alarmed at the actions of the federal government. Those who now reap huge profits from a growingly abusive government will eventually fall prey to the appetite of this same government. If you don’t believe me go back and check on Willy Messerschmitt, for one.
Nazi Germany saw many industrial magnates profit by supporting Adolph Hitler and his regime of terror and murder. Naturally when the dust settled they had nothing. How about the lessons from Soviet Russia, Cuba, Communist China, North Korea, Iran, and on and on and on? Will our arms industries follow the example of these countries or will they join in the movement of a civilized people to return our nation to the values espoused by our founders? Will these companies and the people who manage them look to the Constitution and our founders or will they stand with those bent on dictatorship?
We the People are standing up to the tyranny being forced upon us. We have lost the sad excuse we have for a news media. They are totally controlled by the NWO globalists and loudly call for disarmament and the abolition of the Constitution. And while one political party actively and openly strives to enslave its citizens the other one hems and haws around while looking for excuses to send Abrams tanks and F-16 fighter/bombers to the Muslim Brotherhood. These politicians, who are so concerned about “honoring a treaty with Egypt”, are hiding behind rhetoric to ignore their oath to honor the Constitution as they assist in the subjugation and enslavement of their supporters. The Muslim Brotherhood can be trusted with state-of-the-art weapons systems but I can’t be trusted with a semi-automatic rifle!!!!!
Who is the enemy and who is the friend here? We already know where both political parties stand. Those questions need to be answered by the ammunition manufacturers who are raking in profits from wanna-be dictators as our Republic travels down the rest of the road to dictatorship.
I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity in faith, with the responsibility given to me be Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
