Three months ago, the US anti-gun movement was on the ropes. We were looking at National Reciprocity, moving suppressors off the NFA list, and the gun control organizations were all but bankrupt.

Then came February 14th. Almost immediately, there was a nationwide movement of students, demanding gun control. Within days, they had national fundraising, T shirts, hats, and an organized national set of demonstrations, complete with chartered buses, appearances on national television news shows, and access to congressional hearings. All of it supposedly spontaneous and grassroots.

The high school students I teach can barely accomplish getting their homework done, so I find it very hard to believe that they have the contacts, the funds, and the organizational skills to pull off organizing an entire national political movement in only two weeks. There is BIG money involved here. The kids are being used as pawns, and they don't even realize it.

There is a historical parallel  here, and I have been thinking for days that I have heard a similar story, but I hesitated to mention it until now, simply because the comparison has been so overdone as to make it almost a cliche.

I have been saying for quite awhile that the US is facing a coup attempt by forces that want to topple our government. In order for a revolution to be successful, there needs to be an enemy. Some group of people that can be demonized, dehumanized, and blamed for all of that society's perceived ills. The gun owners of the US are that group.

My belief is this: The shooting on February 14, 2018 was the US version of Krystalnacht.
On the night of November 9, 1938, violence against Jews broke out across Germany. It appeared to be unplanned, set off by Germans' anger over the assassination of a German official in Paris at the hands of a Jewish teenager. In fact, German propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels and other Nazis carefully organized the pogroms. In two days, over 250 synagogues were burned, over 7,000 Jewish businesses were trashed and looted, dozens of Jewish people were killed, and Jewish cemeteries, hospitals, schools, and homes were looted while police and fire brigades stood by. 

We have been seeing similar hatred of gun owners for more than 2 years. Antifa beating conservatives in the streets as police watch. A school massacre that happens while the police officer charged with guarding the students standing there and watching the massacre unfold. Then, the spontaneous response of companies persecuting gun owners: Dick's sporting goods, Youtube, and now Citi bank. Florida passed a law that allows the state to take a gun owner's property in a secret hearing when cops allege that he is dangerous.

Things are going to get worse. If this movement continues, more businesses will be lined up and waiting to virtue signal, each one coming up with more outrageous restrictions. It wouldn't surprise me if the NRA was a target of banks -or even government soon, especially if the democrats win a majority in Congress.

Gun owners are the new target that is to be demonized. We are all being cast as a bunch of uneducated, overweight, racist white men who are using guns to keep people of color and women from getting the justice they deserve. We are being silenced, and now attacked by business. The rail cars will come out, as soon as we are disarmed.

What they think of us

From the comments to this article:

The AR-15 is the best weapon against a home invasion? Any idiot who believes that is mentally ill and SHOULD NOT own any sort of firearm, including a water gun. 
Get that? You should agree that you are not allowed to own a gun, and if you don't agree, you are obviously crazy and shouldn't be allowed to own a gun.

The debt, again

Here we go again, another milestone in the destruction of our nation. Just this week, we passed $21 Trillion with regards to our National Debt. President Trump, whose first budget began 6 months ago, has already borrowed about $600 billion. If recent presidential records are any indication, Trump will leave office with the debt somewhere north of $28 Trillion after 4 years, and should he serve a second term, that term will end with the nation having somewhere near $35 trillion in debt. 

President Obama' last budget left us with having borrowed $19.57 Trillion. In all, Obama's share of our national debt is about $8 Trillion, or an increase of 185%, a increase that is nearly identical to his predecessor.

President George W Bush borrowed his first trillion dollars in two and a half years. He borrowed his second trillion a year and a half later. Another two years, another $1 trillion. All told, President Bush borrowed $5 trillion in 8 years, increasing the national debt by 187%.

It took President Clinton 3 and a half years to borrow his first trillion dollars. All told, he borrowed $1.2 trillion in his first term, and $600 billion in his second. He increased the national debt by 140% in eight years.

George HW Bush borrowed his first trillion in 3 years, and he increased the National debt by 170% in four years.

Reagan borrowed his first trillion in 6 years, and doubled the National debt during his eight years in the White House.

Carter increased the National debt by 150%, but "only" borrowed $300 billion in 4 years. I guess that was when $1 Billion was real money.

Ford increased the debt by 147% in 3 years., Nixon by 135% in 5 years, Johnson by 116% in 6 years, Kennedy by 106% in 2 years, Eisenhower by 108% in eight years.

Democrats, and Republicans, both in a contest to see who can spend the most in our society of "how much can you give me if I vote for you."

I have been in Las Vegas for about a week. Last night, I withdrew some cash from an ATM in the casino located in the New York, New York resort. A few minutes later, someone also withdrew $3,000 from my account, using the same machine.

As soon as I noticed the theft (this morning), I called my bank and disputed the charge. It won't cost me anything, but my card has been cancelled and they are sending me a new one. I will get it in 7-10 days. I contacted casino security, and they are investigating. It is their problem now, because my bank isn't going to honor the withdrawal, so the owner of the ATM- the New York, New York casino - is going to be left holding the bag,

This is why I always carry spare credit cards. This is also why I don't use debit cards. If it had been a debit card, the damage could have been much worse.

Lying liars that lie

There is a national website for all of the schools that participated in yesterday's "spontaneous" and "student led" school walkout yesterday. The only problem is that it is filled with schools that aren't actually participating. For example, the Florida school district where I work is on spring break this week, even though they are on the list.

Because of an Anonymous commenter who has been advocating unlawful and illegal activity, no one will be permitted to make anonymous comments.

Also effective immediately

In light of Florida's new law allowing police to take your weapons after a secret hearing if you make double plus ungood statements, any comments on this blog that support illegal or violent activity will be deleted.

Spot the informant

Let's play a new game called "Spot the police (FBI/ATF) informant. It's easy to do, because the informant is usually the one trying to convince you to break the law.

Effective immediately

Because of the risk of being subjected to a Gun Violence Restraining order. I am suspending all carry inside of non-permissive environments that are using off duty law enforcement officers as security. I will also be avoiding those establishments. That includes all theme parks, and Orlando's convention centers.

The anti gun forces could not get seeping gun control passed to their liking, so they passed this law where, based upon a cop's say-so in a secret court hearing, your guns can be taken without your knowledge, and then you have to go to court to get them back. This will cost you thousands of dollars. You get your due process, but only after the fact, and it will be expensive. The process IS the punishment. This law is sure to be abused.

Rick Scott signed this into law because he is planning on making a run for the US Senate against liberal anti-gun Democrat Bill Nelson. Together with Marco Rubio, another RINO anti-gunner, they are the gun grabbers who need to be voted out. I see little harm in getting rid of all three of them.

I hope the RPOF h a plan for running someone against Scott and Rubio in the primaries. I may change my party affiliation to Republican just so I can primary them out.

No sense whatsoever

A pregnant 15 year old girl from Florida can be driven to Missouri and forced to marry the 30 year old father of her child and he can take his child bride back to Florida, and the marriage totally legal. If she leaves him before 18 because he is abusing her, she is not eligible to enter an abused woman's shelter. If he stalks her, she can't even buy a gun to defend herself for three years, because of Florida's recent gun law denying guns to adults under 21.
