[quote:Holden 29226394:MV8yMTEwMzU4XzM1NTgwNjU0X0NFOEZBM0ZG] Force Are our lives or liberty or rights or freedoms or property or even our beliefs guaranteed the right to exist by a piece of paper or words? - No. The Constitution is only a contract, and as any contract can be broken by those it applies to. Let me discuss a fundamental fact that too many of us are consciously unaware of --> The ONLY thing that guarantees anything you THINK you have rights to in this world is: Force or the threat of force by someone or some group, - in defense against anyone/group that would try to take it away from you. The force can violent or nonviolent, but must be a force capable of inflicting significant enough harm or threat of harm to succeed over the adversary. This is a fact that has always been, and always will be, a fact as long as humans exist on this planet. Does the Constitution in and of itself guarantee your rights and freedoms? Does God guarantee your rights and freedoms? Is the property you own guaranteed by your deed alone? Is the vehicle you own guaranteed by the title you hold in your hand? Does anyone's words or writing guarantee anything you hold dear- your life, your property, your right to your children, your liberty, anything? - No. There is only one fact of life that guarantees ANYTHING that you think you have 'right' to. The ONLY thing that guarantees anything you THINK you have rights to in this world is force or the threat of force by someone or some group in protection of that... ... from those that would try to take it away from you. Force/violence or threat of force/violence can be by individuals, or by groups. Government, military, police, militias, gangs, individual citizens. The only requirement is the ability to use force or the threat of its use against uncooperative adversaries. For example, the 'rights and freedoms' of our Constitution are ONLY guaranteed by those that would fight for it with violence/force or threat of violence/force- the military and police primarily at this point, but other groups and individuals as well. The Constitution is only as good as those who have agreed upon it and are willing to fight, with violence or threat of violence, or force or threat of force, for it. But if our government "went bad" and the Constitution was declared no longer in effect, it could simply happen at that point. If some group with enough power to reenforce it with force/violence or threat of force/violence acted in order to protect it and was successful, our Constitution would survive. Would the military and law enforcement do that, or would they support the new government and its decisions? Would the people have to act deliberately and coordinated in some manner, violent or nonviolent? Only God knows. That is just one example out of a million. The examples include everything that you THINK you have rights to, including your life, your liberty, your property, your children, etc. Your property is only as much yours as that which is backed by your willingness to fight for it, or by those willing to fight for it on your behalf, with force/violence or threat of force/violence, from those that would try to take it away. Your life is only as much yours as that which is backed by your willingness to fight for it, or by those willing to fight for it on your behalf, with force/violence or threat of force/violence, from those that would try to take it away. Your liberty is only as much yours as that which is backed by your willingness to fight for it, or by those willing to fight for it on your behalf, with force/violence or threat of force/violence, from those that would try to take it away. Even your own conscious mind and freedom to think freely is only as much yours as that which is backed by your willingness to fight for it, or by those willing to fight for it on your behalf, with force/violence or threat of force/violence, from those that would try to take it away. EVERYTHING you believe you possess is only guaranteed by violence/force or threat of violence/force against those who would take it away, by yourself, or by others acting on your behalf. This is a fundamental fact that you must understand. This is a fundamental fact that very few understand. Nothing about 'the world as you know it' can be taken for granted. DO NOT take the rights/freedoms/things/possessions you have and believe in for granted, or as an absolute truth that cannot be taken away, or as any inalienable things. Way too many Americans are doing this at this time. NOTHING is ours unless we or someone else is willing and able to do whatever it takes to keep it. [/quote]
Today this gun thing got real for me.
I was in PA today and went to BPS and Cabela. I was stunned.
At BPS they were almost totally sold out of ALL handguns. CASES and CASES were totally empty. GONE. They were totally out of 9mm, 357 ammo and just about everything else. I took pictures but since there's people in them I'm not going to post them. Staff says they can't get anything else at this point, their suppliers are out. There was a sizable crowd scanning the empty cases and shelves. Salespeople I talked to said they are convinced that if anyone tries to take weapons from Americans there's going to be a civil war. They said they're seeing people who used to be anti-gun want to get one because they're afraid of what they think is happening.
Later, I stopped at Cabelas. This place is right off the highway and very visible from a distance. The crowd there was even bigger. They still had a few --
--handguns but nothing left that was a carry piece, imo. I'm sure they were depleted of the little they had by the end of the day. As for ammo, they were limiting to 10 box max. There was almost nothing left.
i'm finding it hard to convey how real all seems to be becoming.
