A note about this post: In the following article, we reference several legal cases, news articles, academic studies, and professional opinions. For your convenience, we’ve provided links within the text to the legal briefs, studies, and sources of information used to draw these conclusions.
It all started in the 1950s.
Schools in Flint, Michigan introduced police officers in public schools. With wide public support, plainclothes officers were installed as a proactive, preventative measure against crime and violence.
Over the next 30 to 40 years, schools across the nation followed suit. These plainclothes officers were provided “on loan” by local law enforcement agencies.
Throughout modern history, gun confiscation is usually preceded by a gun registration. It makes sense to know where the guns are before you demand they be turned in. This usually does not end well for those turning in their weapons as history shows us.
The title of this article is sure to get some people riled up as often happens anytime gun control or anything to do with Nazi’s is mentioned often does. However, to suggest a connection between the two means is crazy, vile and deserving of ridicule…unless you have read history.
Disarming the Future with Common Core
Back in the 1950’s, not only was gun safety taught in schools, children actually learned how to shoot rifles in classes or shooting clubs. That continued through High School into the 60’s and even 70’s in some places.
It was not strange to see children bringing their rifles to school, no one called the police in a panic and there were no mass shootings. Children are no longer taught in school how to shoot and worse yet they are not at all instructed how to be safe around firearms.
Hillary Clinton desperately wants to be your next president, and she is willing to use recent tragedies and sacrifice the Second Amendment to help her get to the White House. Her position on gun control seems to get stronger as she gets closer to the Oval Office.
In 2008, Hillary said, “I respect the Second Amendment. I respect the rights of lawful gun owners to own guns, to use their guns. But I also believe that most lawful gun owners whom I have spoken with for many years across our country also want to be sure that we keep those guns out of the wrong hands.”
Have you heard about this yet?
Months after a Supreme Court victory for gun rights, Chicago’s gun laws have once again been challenged:
Based on recent rulings that overturned outright firearm bans in cities like Washington DC and Chicago, a pro-second amendment group petitioned the Supreme Court to decide on the constitutionality of assault rifle bans.
Why I Will Probably Never Own an Assault Rifle
The title of this article is an honest statement, but not because I think assault rifles are evil, not because I live somewhere where they are banned and not because I think the Supreme Court will make that choice for me sometime soon.
The Supreme Court could refuse to hear a challenge to the 2013 law passed in Highland Park, Illinois, that bans the sale, purchase or possession of semi-automatic weapons that can hold more than 10 rounds in a single ammunition clip or magazine, as early as this week. If the court declines to hear the case, it would boost efforts to impose such bans elsewhere, at a time of renewed interest in gun regulation after the recent rash of mass shootings.
For most people the answer to when you should bug out is simple: Never.
But you’re probably not an ordinary person.
Unless you have seriously planned your bug out and have a secure location to go to, then you should stay in your home and plan to protect your family there.
That may sound strange to many as you have seen me push everyone to have a bug-out bag ready at all times in your home and vehicles for every member of your family. I will continue to push for that, because options are what keep people alive — if you know which option to choose and when.
