Olympic Arms Stands Up For The Constitution

Olypic Arms Logo

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.Sheriff Mark Kessler  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 Dept Homeland Security Logodesigned 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, Iranhitler4, 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 Il Duce Obamaenslavement 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.

  1. I do not know if our sheriff here in Marshal County, Oklahoma will stand firm on the constitutional issues obama and his rat bastard minions threaten so severely but I, for one, would be more than happy to stand with and protect any of his law enforcement personnel. I am retired and a Viet Nam vet 67-73. However, like millions and millions of other citizens I am a convicted felon from decades ago. I will say this, there are millions like me willing to stand totally firm for this nation and die and kill for this nation. Make no mistake about it, a great many of us have re-armed ourselves for purely and solely defense. We will defend ourselves and our nation and ALL those who are like us at all costs….including our lives. We will definitely protect this nation and ALL true Americans against ALL enemies, both foreign and domestic. At any and all costs to ourselves.

    1. tthan43 thank you for your service i myself am vet. I’m with you and your point i couldn’t of said it better myself.I live in christian county Missouri our sheriff put an article in the news paper.I think he was trying to say he would enforce the second amendment but he sounded like a politician scared to stand up for what is right worried about the votes at the next election. So I’m going to ask him myself.

      1. tthan43 and Gary Lindsey, thanks to both for your service to our country. I am happy to hear you say you will stand once again to defend the Constitution. Gary, it sounds like your sheriff wants to enforce the 2nd Amendment and would be more open and enthused about it if he found out many or most of his constituents want him to. Good luck in conveying that message to him. I am relieved to hear that sheriffs across the country are beginning to ask armed civilians to assist them if needed. I think this is the best way to confront and survive an assault on the people by a tyrannical government. I must say it feels really weird to think of our “president” as one who wants to harm us. Never before have we been in such a situation. We must get rid of the fraud who is pretending to be the POTUS and all of those who have helped him and covered up for him.

  2. Barak Obama is not the legal President of the United States. We have no president.

    Obama holds the office in much the same way Hitler came into power – by alternative means;

    Bargaining with Unions and Illegal Gangs to coerce and intimidate voters – Illegal!

    Coercing would-be voters (buying votes) to register and vote for Obama (cell phones and what else?) – Illegal!

    Voters voting as much as 5 times (only once is the legal limit) – Illegal!

    Rumors of Illegal Aliens voting – if true, Illegal!

    The true nature of Obama’s citizenship STILL in question – Qualifications to be President, unknown!

    The failure to honor the sacred Oath of Office to uphold the Constitution of the United States (operating outside of the law to obtain his agenda) – Breech of Contract!

    And now the latest: Let’s just bypass Congress and go straight to dictatorship (with candy promises of economic plans and job creation – “Hey Buddy! Ever hear of the Constitution? You don’t have a mandate to just do what ever you want!!! The President does NOT make legislation!)

    ANY ONE of these infractions is enough to impeach this president! So any questions about some of the validity of these charges Do NOT matter!!

    Why are we putting up with this guy? The issue of gun control is so far down the list of a SENSIBLE Nations priorities it isn’t even funny! We have a Criminal and a Traitor in the highest office of the land. What are we going to do about THAT?!

    I do not acknowledge any of this Pariah’s authority as binding. Write your Congressmen and urge them to support the Impeachment procedures now in motion! If your Congressman balks or dismisses your demands ask him what HE has to hide. If the Media is so sure of his justification as President they should support the proceedings – it would clear up all of these matters!

    I am all for the Gun Manufacturers embargo on Government agencies that support Obama’s illegal gun ban laws. I am very heartened at the Sheriff Association’s Stand. I am a do or die supporter of the Constitution. We have the authority in the Law of the land to put an end to this crap! We just need to have the will and the strength to do it! In the words of that great cliché; “The best Defense is a good Offense!!” Let us stop reacting and start proacting!

  3. Imagine the news announced that hyper inflation has started in Europe and is projected to move across the U.S.A. within days. The next day, the grocery stores and banks are closed and the TV is announcing Marshall Law is going to be implemented in our largest cities effective 5PM tomorrow. Then you get a knock on your door and it’s the police. They have a line of cars all down your street and are going door to door with clip boards, asking people to temporarily give up their guns and ammo, on a voluntary basis. You ask, “So, if someone had such things and refused to give them up what would happen…” and with that, they ask you to step outside, raise your hands behind your head and spread your legs. You get arrested and taken off without further discussion. You end up in jail with dozens of others having similar stories.
    OR: You give up your firearm(s) and ammo and thank them for being so polite and so professional / and offer them a soda. They leave, and you go to bed. Three hours later, you get up and put a back pack in your car with some camping gear and head for the country. At sun up, you find a local library with a computer where you can get on the Internet and you go to all the tea Party and Conservative sites you can find and tell them what just happened. You send an email to everyone you know and mention that it’s TIME and it’s not a game / not speculation anymore; Socialism has arrived. It seems to me that this is about how it’s likely to go. If you don’t have reasonable plan to survive; perhaps none of us will.
