Federal, state, or local. You, the man or woman with the badge, the sworn LEO or FLEA and those who inhabit the many law enforcement niches in between and on all sides. This essay is directed to you, because in the end, how this turmoil about gun control turns out will depend largely upon your decisions and actions over the coming months and years.

(A very long essay by Matt Bracken that is spot on and ends with this:)

The Yellow Line:

The yellow warning line will be crossed with national gun registration laws, including laws forbidding private gun sales without government permission. When that law passes, millions of Americans will feel that they have been pushed directly to the edge of the abyss above the mass graves of history. Defenders of the Second Amendment know what happened in Turkey, the USSR, Germany, China, and other nations that fell under totalitarian rule: in every case a necessary preliminary step on the road to genocide was national gun registration, followed by confiscation. The Jewish survivors of the Nazi Holocaust say,“Never again!” And so do we.

The Red Line:

The red line will be crossed with the passage of laws mandating that currently owned weapons, ammunition magazines, and ammunition quantities above a certain number must be turned in to authorities or destroyed, and thereafter their simple possession will be a felony. At that point, the nation will be on a hair trigger, with a thousand flaring matches nearing a thousand primed cannon fuses aimed directly at the next Fort Sumter.

The Dead Line:

The next line requires a bit of history to explain. In some primitive Civil War POW camps, where lack of funding or logistical constraints did not allow the construction of proper fences, a knee-high continuous railing of wooden slats encircled the prison grounds. Guards with rifles were positioned at the corners and in crude towers. If a prisoner so much as stepped over the narrow plank, he was shot dead without warning, obviating the need for a real fence to contain him. Hence the term “dead line.” Cross the line and people die, right now.

And this is what liberal utopians must understand: after passing the yellow line with national gun registration and transfer requirements, and the red line by making possession of currently legal firearms felonious, the dead line will be breached with the first SWAT raids upon citizens suspected of owning legal firearms made illegal by the new gun control laws. People will die resisting confiscation, in large numbers.

Confiscation crosses the dead line, make no mistake about it.

About Matt Bracken:

Matt Bracken was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1957 and graduated from the University of Virginia in 1979 with a degree in Russian Studies. He was commissioned in the US Navy through the NROTC program at UVA, and then graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training class 105 in Coronado California. He served on east coast UDT and SEAL teams, taking a Naval Special Warfare detachment to Beirut in 1983. Mr. Bracken left active duty after Lebanon, upon completion of his obligated military service, but he remained in an active reserve status through the remainder of the 1980s. Since then he has lived in Florida, Virginia, South Carolina, Guam and California. In 1993 Mr. Bracken finished building a 48-foot steel sailing cutter of his own design, on which he has done extensive ocean cruising, including a solo voyage 9,000 miles from Panama to Guam and two Panama Canal transits.

Excerpt:

But know this: those tens of millions will never be quietly disarmed and then later forced at government gunpoint onto history’s next boxcars. If boxcars and detention camps are to be in America’s future, then you, Mr. Security Agent, will have to disarm them the hard way first. Not Piers Morgan, not Michael Moore, not Rosie O’Donnell, not Dianne Feinstein, not Chuck Schumer.
You.

"...A reasonable, common sense and durable settlement has always been available, and formerly practiced. Those who believe guns are a self-animating evil are free to neither keep nor bear arms. They are not however free to deny others their right to keep and bear arms. Nor may they make keeping and bearing arms conditional on their permission, as if their judgment were a fair substitute for our civil rights..."

TO REPEAT: YOUR FILTHY PROGRESSIVES' JUDGEMENT IS NOT A FAIR SUBSTITUTE FOR OUR CIVIL RIGHTS

This is about the same 'patriots' who were going to secede from the Union en masse because the President was re-elected.

I haven't been keeping track; how many states have seceded now?

Before Rush got popular we had G. Gordon Liddy. He justified his illegal role in Watergate with his belief that we were a nation at war--against domestic peace protesters. Very strange guy by all accounts. Served extra time in prison because he refused to testify.

He used to warn about the jack-booted thugs who were on their way to take our guns.

The rhetoric of meeting them at the door with fire seems to come from him. I suspect he might have done so had they ever arrived. But it's been a long time since he was making that claim--with no apparent moves on the homes of citizens.

And while plenty seemed to have picked up his rhetoric and his bravado, I suspect most would be either coming out with their hands in the air, hiding behind the furniture or trying to remember if they have any clean underwear in the drawer.

There seems to be an assumption of a much larger degree of organization and coherence among gun-owners than I perceive.

Further, I doubt that SWAT raids against the hunting and target shooting crowd would be a recommended course of action--certainly not as a first measure. Just as police don't set up check-points to look for compliance with seat-belt laws, or routine screenings of school children to look for bruises (to identify possible abuse)--because there are less intrusive means of enforcing the law, so too would enforcement of gun laws rely on other means. Think about it. Clearly not every gun in circulation currently is legally owned. How does law enforcement go about dealing with that reality? What draws the attention of law enforcement and justifies a court order?

How about we consider the possibility that some folks just decide that it's not worth the risk of getting caught with something illegal and turn it in?

No, Reader. Many of us would meet them at the door and inform them that our firearms were recently lost in a "tragic boating accident" on Lake Erie.
My guns would be safe and sound...and hidden, off my property.

Say, was that warning BEFORE Ruby Ridge and after Waco or was it before Waco and before Ilian Gonzalez or was it before...Bill Clinton left office or after Bill Clinton left office. Seeing as how he was setting the table for his perjury contest during each of these three jack-booted episodes.

And this:
" I suspect most would be either coming out with their hands in the air, hiding behind the furniture..." But YOU YOURSELF are not going to crash through the doors of the intransigent are YOU? You filthy pfhuqqing coward. Your ideas do not equal MY RIGHTS in importance.

Hi little skimmer....

This will be my first and only post re gun control...

I think this is much hubub over nothing....

The politicians will get their face time and the the drama queens will cry "save the children" but, at the end of the day little or nothing will change.

I don't own a gun but I am a supporter of the constitution....
Politicians who want to be re elected are not going to stomp on the 2nd amendment.

obama may issue a executive fiat but the SCOTUS will overturn it.

Who cares????????

How bout you manning up, putting on the jack boots, and going out with your agents and eradicating those that refuse to see your "wisdom". You filthy progressives have been wrong on EVERYTHING! From forced collectivization of the farms in the USSR to "your healthcare premiums will decrease by $2500"

You gonna man up and crash through doors? Man check points? Or are you going to ask someone else to be brave on your behalf and take citizens' guns from them because you don't have the stomach for the dirty work?

Sure. Sure. Sure...they'll puff and bluster and give them guns up...and "your healthcare premiums will decrease by $2500"

Btw, an observer has noted that EVERY rifle of military utility design from the past 100 years and up for sale has been snatched up. Do you think Americans are buying to register them? or are they preparing for war? Remember before you answer: "your healthcare premiums will decrease by $2500"

A couple of Waco reenactments ought to do the trick. And that'll take about a week, knowing this administration.

Ummmm, yeah. But suppose they all turn out to be like you--burying them in someone else's back yard and making up a story about a boating accident?

You are really counting on someone else to do your fighting (and dying) for you, aren't you?

Note the high sphincter factor of the progressives as demonstrated by the asinine three questions above by reader?

Jeez, the NRA didn't skulk shamefully into a rat hole and say, "Here are our evil guns. Take them, please" Nor did hundreds of thousands of Americans refuse to purchase a single additional firearm when the progressives started screeching.

here's a tip, progressives: You lose the moral authority to seek the disarming of law abiding citizens when you smuggle weapons to murderous drug cartels in violation of domestic laws and international laws.
