Calls for a “Gun-Free” America and Gun Confiscation

Tweets from Barack Obama’s Twitter account have been coming in every two hours. There are demands to “do something”, requests to sign a gun control petition, and references to the president’s digest – a site that lists gun violence incidents. The left-wing media outlets are acting in lockstep since he sent out his ‘dog whistle’. People Magazine is asking people to contact their congressmen to demand action and two Washington Post articles in one day calling for a “gun-free” America.

It’s a blatant call for gun confiscation.

Fred Hiatt, the Washington Post editorial page editor, wants Americans to repeat after him:


Mass buyback.

A gun-free society.

Let’s say that one again: A gun-free society.

Buybacks are always paid for with tax dollars and it forces people to pay for giving their guns away.

If you have doubted the true intent of the gun grabbers, doubt no more. They do want your guns.

To him, it’s “logical” and “safe” for law-abiding gun owners to be unarmed and at the mercy of criminals.

Barack Obama’s DOJ is about to release nearly half of all Federal prisoners held on drug charges – tens of thousands of them – and many of them were dealing drugs who used weapons including guns. He has released hundreds of thousands of illegal alien criminals onto our streets and, according to the National Border Patrol Agents union, virtually every illegal alien coming into the U.S. now are coming in with drugs – it’s the cost of their passage.

The WaPo editor isn’t happy with the incremental steps towards a “gun-free” society which includes anti-gun propaganda.

This is a matter of changing the culture and norms of an entire society. It would take time.

But the incremental approach is not succeeding. It sets increasingly modest goals, increasingly polite goals: close a loophole here, restrict a particularly lethal weapon there. Talk about gun safety and public health. Say “reform,” not “control.”

Whenever these gun grabbers are asked what law will stop these mass shootings, they can’t come up with a law that would do it but they want to do it anyway because it makes them feel good.

The editor said this:

Every time there is a mass shooting, gun-control advocates argue again for legislation. But almost every time, opponents can argue that this shooter wouldn’t have been blocked from buying a gun, or that this gun would not have been on anyone’s banned list — and so why waste time (and political capital) on irrelevant restrictions?

It is a complete waste of time if the government doesn’t enforce the laws we have and can’t come up with a law that will affect change.

The editor then went into a full-fledged assault on the NRA.

He’s hopeful that a gun-free America is possible in the very near future and thinks it’s similar to the LGBT debate:

As we’ve seen over the past 15 years with same-sex marriage, such deep cultural change is difficult — and possible.

The gun grabbers won’t give up until they have it all which includes confiscating our guns and leaving us to the mercy of an ever-more-abusive government and criminals roaming the streets.

The gun-free zones are crime-ridden because the criminals know innocents can’t fight back. The Chicago safe streets program is a perfect example. Rahm had signs put up that declared the roads to schools as “safe streets” and that’s where the drug dealers and gangbangers hang now. Some of the civilians they hired to patrol have been arrested.

Another rousing success.

If I thought the guns were causing the problem and if I thought the criminals wouldn’t get them, I’d give up my guns.

You want my guns?
