Our friend Mark Smith at the Four Boxes Diner YouTube site is one of our sharpest and best 2A warriors.  The next time a prohibitionist suggests that the President order confiscations of AR15s and such, you might want to remind them that he is expressly forbidden to do so by Federal law, found here:

  1. Interesting, but bear in mind the attitude of the oppositon: Laws, smaws, we’ll do what we want and use tax money to fight it out in court.

    Going to the punch line of an old joke/story: “Come the revolution, you’ll do what you’re damn well told.” Which, come to think of it, has been demonstrated countless times in real life.

    • ^^ THIS ^^

      They know they can’t enforce unconstitutional laws. But they pay no price for passing unconstitutional laws and trying to enforce them, and they have unlimited tax resources to defend the laws and their actions in court. The burdens and costs of challenging those laws are on us, and they damn well know it and take full advantage of it.

    • … while ignoring any and all rulings that don’t reflect their will. Or atleast doing an end run around the laws and rullings. Additionally, letting career criminals, mentally ill and select groups run rampant while infringing, demonizing and criminalizing otherwise good and productive citizens.

  2. As others have noted above, the democrat party (American Left) is lawless. Or, rather, they see the law as a tool with which to hammer their enemies while not letting it constrain their own actions at all.

    Nevertheless, they have a real problem, in the practical sense, as well as the legal sense. There are hundreds of millions of firearms in the hands of American Citizens. Confiscating them is an enormous practical and logistical problem. Do you think that everyone will just hand them in to the Government because “Shotgun Joe” Biden and his cronies demand them?

    Think again, Buster! Look at the compliance rate for Old Joe’s forearm brace ATF Rule. See this link:


    I expect the compliance rate with an AR-15 confiscation demand to also be in the single digits.

    “So long as the bosses pretend to pay us, we will pretend to work.” – Russian Political Joke

    I expect a similar mindset to apply to handing over our firearms. The Founders knew what they were doing when the wrote the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

    • TN_MAN,

      Agreed. For fun, I will just try to speculate, and play the “what if?” game. If the Marxists really will stop at nothing to achieve their dreams, they might try to withhold food from those who refuse to give up their guns. Stalin did that to the Kulaks, even in the rural farm areas, during the Holodomor, 1932–1934. I would think it would be pretty hard to starve out farmers, but Stalin did it. Of course, those farmers were already disarmed.

      Imagine the Democrats pay a lot of money to gang members, like MS-13, to go door to door confiscating weapons. It would be bloody work, but it could be successful if the gang members (illegal aliens) use overwhelming force, and are well-paid and well armed.

      I suppose the most likely scenario is for things to continue into the future as they have in the past. The Left keeps making progress implementing its agenda, while the Right resists vocally, separates from the Left physically, and gets a few of its own victories.

      There is one thing I am absolutely sure of, and it just may be the one thing that keeps the peace. Both those on the Left and the Right love their standard of living in America, and do not want see it diminish in any way. Open conflict would diminish our standard of living, our happiness in this nation, and both sides know it. So, I expect the bickering to continue. We shake our fists at each other, then go back to living our lives, being the envy of most of the 8 billion souls on this planet, who wish they could live like we do.

        Quote of the Day:

        Deuteronomy 31:16 to 21 – “And the LORD said unto Moses, Behold, thou shalt sleep with thy fathers; and this people will rise up, and go a whoring after the gods of the strangers of the land, whither they go to be among them, and will forsake me, and break my covenant which I have made with them.

        Then my anger shall be kindled against them in that day, and I will forsake them, and I will hide my face from them, and they shall be devoured, and many evils and troubles shall befall them; so that they will say in that day, Are not these evils come upon us, because our God is not among us? And I will surely hide my face in that day for all the evils which they shall have wrought, in that they are turned unto other gods.

        Now therefore write ye this song for you, and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song may be a witness for me against the children of Israel.

        For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant. And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed:”

  3. There are penalties for breaking the law. Could someone list the prosecutions the republicans carried out when they gained office.
    I’ll give you a clue as to how many there are: it’s a one digit number beginning with zero.
    Why make these obviously false allegations that never lead to court actions?

    • @ nickolas kane – “Why make these obviously false allegations that never lead to court actions?”

      Always the same argument, eh? Let me sum it up.

      1) The American Left controls: (a) The Administrative arms of our government, (b) most major media channels, (c) they are in-bed with the global corporations, (d) they control (and have converted) our education system into an indoctrination system, (e) they control sports and entertainment channels, (f) they control big pharma and big tech, etc.
      2) The American Left dominates the courts, especially in the big media markets (New York, Washington, DC, Chicago, etc.)
      3) They use Mutiple suppression techniques (economic attacks, deplatforming, lawfare, threats of mob violence, etc.) to silence their political opponents.
      4) The opposition Party (The Republicans) are so scared of them, and their character-assassination attacks, that half of them are afraid to put up a good fight. The other half has decided that “if you can’t beat them, then join them” and have become collaborators.

      From the above position of strength, the American Left commits crimes at will because they know that no one, not the courts, not law enforcement, not the church, not the opposition party, has the spine to stand up to them. Anyone who tries gets the “Donald Trump” treatment. President Trump is being made into the “Poster Boy” to illustrate what happens to those that oppose the regime.

      So, what is your conclusion? That we are all delusional and are making “obviously false allegations”. Aren’t Worldview differences interesting?
