MSNBC liberal blowhard Ed Schultz is calling for the government to confiscate “assault weapons.” He made the comment over the weekend on a tweet.
“Why should anyone own an assault rifle?” Schultz asked, and then said “it’s the confiscation of these types of weapons that counts and will have an impact.”
“The NRA needs to state the case why assault weapons are needed by anyone,” he added.
Ed, like most liberals and other government-lovers, is completely brain-dead when it comes to the Second Amendment. It was added not to ensure the rights of duck hunters and plinkers, but as a last resort to fend off a tyrannical government.
George Mason, considered one of the founding fathers of the Bill of Rights, said disarming the people is “the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
This is precisely what Ed Schultz and the liberals want to do – disarm the American people. For Schultz and his fellow travelers, a tyrannical government is inconceivable .
As anybody who understands history realizes, gun confiscation is not about saving children. The Soviet Union and communist China did not confiscate weapons to save children. Hitler did confiscate Germany’s gun to put a stop to school shootings.
Confiscation is about the government having its way with us. It’s about slavery.
“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe,” wrote Noah Webster in an 1787 pamphlet published to convince Pennsylvania to ratify the Constitution. “The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any bands of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.”
Over the weekend, the liberal website Daily Kos ran a poll asking if gun confiscation is do-able, revealing that Democrats and other “progressives” are at least thinking about stealing guns from law-abiding Americans (the liberals never take into consideration how many cops will be killed in the process).
“The progressive community needs to adopt a program of first identifying all guns and equipment with no valid hunting or defense purpose such as assault weapons, high capacity magazines, .50 cal rifles, etc.; second , requiring that these weapons be turned in for appropriate compensation and then destroyed,” Daily Kos explained.
The idea of firearms compensation fits right into the liberal pathology – stealing money from one segment of society and giving it to another after the government steals something from them.
Schultz also called for subverting the Constitution to make sure the American people cannot defend themselves against government tyranny.
“We are the Constitution and we as a people can change whatever we want. Get ready Dude!”
Fortunately, it is inordinately difficult to amend the Constitution. As stipulated by Article V, the Constitution can be amended by a vote of two-thirds of both the House of Representatives and the Senate followed by a ratification of three-fourths of the state legislatures. It can also be amended through a convention called by two-thirds of state legislatures.
Currently, there are not enough gun-grabbers in Congress to pull this off.
Ed’s wish to nullify the Second Amendment is not likely to happen. His wish, however, to confiscate weapons is far more possible, as the gun confiscation beta test in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina demonstrated.
