The Terror of Toy Guns
The bigger picture
Submitted by: Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor
The scene has become familiar: A child in elementary school is suspended from school. His/her crime? Bringing a toy gun to school. It might be a squirt gun, or even a picture of a gun. One little child was suspended for drawing a picture of a gun. It might even be a plastic knife inserted in a child’s lunch box that is cause for suspension. The reason for suspension given by the Schools is usually their “Zero Tolerance Policy”. Zero tolerance for what? For weapons, yet is a water pistol a weapon? Is a picture of a gun a weapon? It doesn’t make sense, does it? Or does it?
Let’s take a look at the bigger picture, and see if we find it makes sense.
The Department of Homeland Security put out a handbook called:
In this handbook, the DHS tells us how to respond to an active shooter situation. Their suggestions? Run away. If you can’t run away, hide, and wait for the police. If you can’t hide, throw things at the shooter, yell, and act aggressive. Never once does it say pull out your pistol and shoot the SOB. They automatically assume you are disarmed. Of course this is their goal, to disarm all Americans, except, of course, the police, or other persons in authority.
The promotion of the 911 Emergency phone number has been relentless, not only in proclaiming that the police and emergency personnel are ready to protect you, but it also has been relentless in telling you not to protect yourself. Wait for the professionals to arrive, is their constant refrain. Only professionals are capable of handling emergency situations. There are actually some States where, if you shoot an intruder, you will be arrested. Why? Because you did not run away.
The DHS and the media have sought to demonize those we call Preppers. Preppers stockpile survival needs and are usually armed and trained in the use of their weapons. Preppers believe in being responsible for themselves and their families. It is this sense of responsibility that causes them to be demonized. The Government wants you to be helpless and dependent on them.
“See Something, Say Something”. By now everyone has heard of this program sponsored by the DHS. This is nothing more than a snitch program. Ostensibly it is meant to protect us from “terrorists”, but why then are Preppers included in the list of things to snitch on. Are Preppers Terrorists? A report smuggled out of the Missouri Fusion Center in 2009, titled MIAC Strategic Report (02/20/09) The Modern Militia Movement characterizes supporters of Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin as subversive or extremist elements. Preppers who are concerned about the economic collapse of the US are branded extremists, or subversives. Those who worry about a possible North American Union are on the list, as are those concerned about RFID chips for identification purposes. Please, read this report, if you haven’t already. It is enlightening.
Next on our list of things to consider is the Police proclivity for itemizing all weapons seized from those they arrest, whether they are legal guns, or not. It is merely an attempt to demonize those they arrest. The guns in question may have had nothing to do with the crime they were arrested for, but it makes no difference. It is imperative to demonize them.
The Editor of this website, Elias Alias, has written an excellent Five Part Series on the militarization of the Police Forces across America. It is called An Empire Strikes Home. Please take the time to read all five parts. It is a very good study of the increased militarization of our police forces. Just recently I saw an article saying Georgia police acquired $200 million worth of military-grade vehicles and weapons through DoD. This is only the tip of the iceberg, as this is only one State. What is all this hardware and weaponry destined for? You guessed it, it is destined to be used against you, the citizen. Meanwhile the DHS has purchased over a billion rounds of hollow point ammunition. The use of hollow point ammunition in warfare is banned by the Geneva Conventions, but it is all right for use against civilians, here in the good old USA. They have also put in an order for 7,000 assault rifles, which brings me to the next point of consideration:
Sen Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Charles Schumer have introduced a bill to outlaw most rifles and handguns, and to ban magazines holding more than ten rounds, plus some common hardware. Those guns not banned outright will be required to be registered. No grandfathering of existing weapons will be allowed, and no transfers of weapons may take place. When you die, your guns must be turned in or destroyed. Of course you are probably aware of this bill.
Have you seen the pattern yet? Quite simply, the Government is demonizing guns and those who would possess and use them. From young children in Elementary School, who are taught that guns are very bad, to adults who own them and are demonized as extremists, the Government is lashing out at all guns and gun owners. Why? They want us to be totally helpless and dependent on the Government. They want total control over us. This has been the plan all along. Only the Government and its minions can have guns. Our guns stand in the way of their total control. It is only our guns that prevent them from asserting total control over us.
