Safety or Tryanny?


About the author: Becky is a conservative citizen activist who grew up in the 1980's Reagan era. During that time it was not unusual for American's to hear a great deal about the Cold War and to be concerned about the possibility of a nuclear war. When the Cold War ended, American entered an era of peace and prosperi ... [read 's FULL BIO]

Liberty is a thing that each generation must fight to preserve. It is not easily handed down to our posterity. Every generation has its bullies and radicals. As Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

In the latest political cycle of insanity American senators have taken up the cause of passing legislation that will ensure your safety. Senate bill S.649 is making the rounds and trying to garner support. One of the goals is to enact “universal background checks”, also seen as a new tax. What your senators are telling you is that you have the potential to be a criminal. You cannot be trusted to give a firearm away to a family member or a friend. You must do so through a licensed dealer who must run a background check on the person taking possession of said firearm. What purpose does this serve? According to them it makes us all safer. It keeps us gun nuts from giving a firearm to the wrong person. Yeah, right.

You know how I see this playing out? I see a national registry where every gun owned in America is listed and the information for the owners is at the fingertips of any government agency that wants it. I see yet another tax heaped on us that will give the government another reach into our pockets, and one that will be increased every time they decide they need more money. As the bill reads now, the Attorney General will have the ability to set the fee’s maximum level. I see the government enacting unfunded legislation that it then forces us to pay for. I see tyranny.

Are you tired of being treated like a criminal or a potential criminal? Are you sick to death of legislators who think they are smarter than the rest of us passing laws that are supposed to protect us from ourselves? When was the last time you thought about taking your gun into a “gun free” zone, or anywhere, and committing mass murder? Never, you say? Of COURSE not. Because we are the sane members of society who do not have murderous intentions or desires. We are the people who work hard, pay taxes, raise our children as best we can, and try to be an asset to society. It isn’t everyday Americans who do these horrible things. And they have yet to pass a law that suddenly woke up the criminals and lunatics. Those people will ALWAYS be criminals and lunatics. Taking my guns away or making it more difficult for me to get one only serves the purpose of making me an easier target for those criminals and lunatics. Unfortunately, that list may include some politicians who are determined to become America’s own Dear Leader.

The fight to preserve our liberties is never ending. Each generation is responsible for maintaining it. In America’s history each generation has lost ground in this battle. But we cannot give up the fight no matter how tired we get. My children do not live in the America I knew in the 1980’s. I did not grow up in the America my mom knew in the 1950’s. What will we leave to our children and grandchildren? I shudder to think. But I can tell you this; I will fight for the rest of my life to protect what we have and to restore the liberties that have been denied us over the decades. We all do what we can. I hope you will do what you can. The very best thing you can do is contact your state senators and let them know in no uncertain terms that you oppose this bill. I promise you that if enough people send them that message it WILL make a difference. I’ve seen it happen. So please folks, call your senators’ local offices and leave a message. Get on your computer and email them. Make whatever noise you can opposing this bill. We need this win. We need to defeat Harry Reid and his horrible, liberty killing legislation. We need you to keep fighting the good fight.

Don’t ever give up my friends. We need you on this battleground. We need to defend liberty and our Constitution until our last breath. Without you, America dies. Join me in saying NOT ON MY WATCH.

    No single gun control law, and we have over 20,000 of them, has ever stopped a criminal intent on causing havoc. Passing additional laws will only serve to disarm honest people. Nothing government does will have any effect whatever on criminals.
    Law-abiding people use guns to defend themselves approximately two and a half million times each year. Denied a means of self-defense they would provide easy prey to
    criminals,and add massive numbers of victims to the crime rate.
    Individual defense, incidentally, is not the reason the Founders championed gun ownership. The ability of citizens to prevent being victimized by tyrannical government was uppermost in their minds.

      2War Aban Vet , First of all , thank you for your service . Second, I could not agree with you more ! You Nailed it .

    This is about political power, but any/all gun restriction laws are totally unconstitutional. Even the restrictions that the servants of our government placed in to the books as law in 1929 are unconstitutional. All one has to do is read the bill of god given rights, htese rights are not given to us by our servants but by god. Therefore the servants can not touch these rights, then the wording in the bill of rights totally affirms that our servants can’t change/modify these rights. The supreme court had better start understanding that they are not the only people that can read and comprehend the english language.

      Charlie , The fraud and usurper barack hussein obama wants to disarm the American people because the you know what is about to hit the fan and it would do to have We The People Armed .

  • Of course in the long run this will make criminals out of citizens. When and IF they come for my guns I will give them all the ones I have registered. And shoot them with the one I have not.

  • don’t these fines INFRINGEon our 2nd Amendment rights?

  • I grew up in the 60’s. I lived through the Cuban Missile Crisis,I was sickened and angry at the Assassination of J.F.K. and the Warren Commission coverup that buried the truth with the President.

    Enter L.B.J.,you know,the guy who was Not elected,sent 60,000 of my peers,my friends,my neighbors to die or become seriously injured and unable to adjust,forget,recover from the tyranny,the wonton death they saw on both sides,the horror of being taken from school,from work,from their families,from life as they knew it! I was drafted and spared from Vietnam,Cambodia by a lottery real life game of Russian Roulette so many were forced to play.

    I am a patriot! I have served and continue to serve my country in any way I could/can. I havw worked a lifetime since I was seven years old mowing lawns,delivering newspapers and never taken a dime.

    I was raised to work hard,to fear “G-D,to honor the law,to “never” give up as were the majority of my friends.acquaintances. We were the children of “legal” immigrants who knew tyranny,the tyrant too well! We were barely “middle class” but that,for most Was the American Dream turned Nightmare!

    We never felt poor or deprived.We were grateful for simple things,an occasional hot dog,Chinese food,a sandwich,some Deli,a bicycle,a bus an affordable movie and most of us worked! We played in the street which were safe.We played on school teams,we played in Little League,in gym,at a friends house and we weren’t afraid to go out on Halloween.

    Johnson,the Nixon,then Carter then the rest changed life in America forever via tyranny,ignorance,perversion,idiotic,vapid Foreign and Domestic policy,war after war,the Iranian Revolution,the Oil Embargo crises,never ending crisis, as the system,the incredible system we were raised to honor,the country we loved,the institutions that were the glue which united us were eviscerated along with the Constitution a progressively corrupt government that stole our money,our quality of life,our present and our future as in Socialism,Fascism,totalitarianism,religious and ethnic terrorism,the Failure of Checks and Balances,the corrupt people and political process we trusted to “represent us”,to be honest,to honor the very reason they existed and the oath they swore!

    Two Kennedy’s assassinated,covered up and buried,murdered as we all knew the monsters behind this went free!

    Then we got L.B.J.,the criminal who illegally sent us to war! The originator of the “Great Society” which gave us Affirmative Action,trillions of dollars taken and stolen,spent,our money Not theirs put into one Ponzi scheme after another,debt we could not afford,the system that 5 decades later is bankrupt,looted,the contract,the promises made a scheme to enrich themselves,buy power,steal our money enrich themselves to buy longevity,huge salaries,”Cadillac” Health care”,care unavailable to us for free,expense accounts,payoffs,extortion,pork,earmarks,exorbitant vacations,homes,travel with 1/2 a years work,6 months of failure,of expensive dinners,parties,self-serving while producing “Nothing”,violating their oath of office, ever destroying the Constitutional Republc,the economy,the freedoms,the independence,the inalienable rights,the Constitution which was written,if nothing else to “limit” government,to give us the “right” to bear arms to protect ourselves,our families,our property,our country from those who would harm us,take what is ours from the tyrants,the tyranny they knew too well!

    Two Presidents found guilty of impeachable offenses,one pardoned,the other unaccountable for the crimes they committed and the tyranny they brought! Clinton is a Centi-millionaire,the guy who was Potus the entire time that terrorism grew unfettered as Bush,no Angel himself was handed 9/11 only eight months in office while Bill,Hillary and the “Friends of Bill” all got very rich,scandal after scandal,a country decomposing by design,a system broken,our freedoms gone as freedom Cannot exist where there is No law!

    All of these people committed impeachable,criminal acts yet only two were tried,both found guilty while L.B.J. and now Obama who by dictate,tyranny,Socialism,executive order,Constitutional and Civil crime,the circumvention of the Congress,the Constitution,the one who dictates by executive order,uses executive privilege ala Nixon to coverup his crimes,who has used executive order hundreds of times a power Never intended to be used unless Congress could Not convene and crisis was imminent!

    There is NO power to dictate,to infringe on our inalienable rights,to break the law yet, it’s here,it’s been coming for decades as 50 million are on food stamps,the economy is a sewer with 23 million unemployed,millions underemployed and millions more they don’t count,they ignore who have quit or given up and are statistically invisible!

    So,it’s here,the “end of days is here” for America,for the Constitution,for the quality of life gone and the country, real heroes who built it,defended it,fought and died for it dead,dying and forgotten!

    “Live Free or Die”,they did!
