"Patriots are not revolutionaries trying to overthrow the government of the United States.
Patriots are Counter-Revolutionaries trying to prevent the government from overthrowing the Constitution."

We need to stand up to the NRA and
push for what is so desperately needed: a
complete ban on firearms.
As students under fire in Florida
speak out to end mass shootings, many hope this time it’s different. Indeed,
their demand is compelling: Our representatives in Washington must act less
like politicians and more like parents. Most of them have children; they should
act like it.
But a fuzzy demand for “gun control”
will likely squander this opportunity to save lives. To end gun deaths, we need to ban all civilian guns.
In the U.S., eliminating guns looks
politically impossible. Elimination
would be difficult even if we carved out an exception for licensed hunting
clubs to keep registered rifles under lock and key. How could a buyback
program address our gun culture? Banning
guns is especially problematic when the Second Amendment is touted as the right
of any individual to own firearms.
Yet while we are a nation that
reveres our Constitution, we are also one that changes it when it becomes clear
that the Founding Fathers failed to see what modern times require. We changed
the Constitution to allow women the right to vote. We reinterpreted it to
protect the right to gay marriage.

must have laws that keep Americans safe from gun technology that the
Constitution’s framers never foresaw, from manufacturing techniques to laser
gun sights to automatic weapons. Even a simple revolver was beyond their
conceptual horizons. On the cultural front, the
Australian experience suggests that pro-gun attitudes shift in favor of
reducing weapons – once the restrictive legislation saves lives.
Abolishing guns will profoundly alter
the American way of life for the better, just like women’s suffrage did. Is gun
abolition too extreme? Not if human life comes first.
Many great political victories aim
for what initially seems like an impossible objective. Opponents of slavery didn’t advocate “slave control.” They were
abolitionists. Gandhi did not campaign to control the British – he
sought Indian independence from a starting point that looked hopeless.
Nevertheless, in both cases, proponents succeeded while stating their
objectives in uncompromising terms.
In contrast, gun-control advocates have long espoused incremental aims while eschewing
any overarching objective – and we have been completely overrun by the
National Rifle Association. Background checks and banning AR-15s won’t suffice.
As long as we demand ineffective change, the NRA can rightly claim that we are
either mistaken, delusional or dishonest.
want to end the carnage, we must advocate for the solution that is required, not one designed to be politically palatable. Instead of shying away from the NRA’s
accusation that gun control advocates want to take away their guns, we should
embrace it as a mantra.

To give credit where credit’s due, at
least he’s open and honest. He’s outright calling to take away everyone’s guns,
unlike the Bloombergs.
Ed. So our government will see to it that we are safe, secure and our rights honored. Give's one a nice warm feeling, doesn't it!
