America has suffered a recent spate of attacks by armed gunmen. Back in 2009, Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan killed 13 soldiers on base at Fort Hood, Texas. Of late there is Jared Loughner, who shot and killed 6 in Arizona, and wounded 12, most notably a sitting Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. Then there were the 12 Aurora murders allegedly perpetrated by James Holmes in a crowded theater. In Wisconsin, a man entered a Sikh temple and killed six worshippers.
I’m not willing to say that any of these murderous incidents had any connection to each other. I do find it interesting that Major Hasan was a psychiatrist, and Holmes in Colorado was studying to be a mental health professional. Reasonable minds would have concluded that people trained in mental health would not commit multiple murders.
I could write an article about each of the incidents…the details are of little importance to this article. What is important is that in each incident, the gunman wielded weapons that use high-capacity magazines…weapons that are considered military-like, or “assault” weapons.
No six-shot revolvers used in mass shootings. Gunmen are smarter than that.
Gun control in America is for practical purposes a non-issue. Sure, there are little incremental laws and regulations passed around the country that chip away at the right of individuals to keep and bear arms. But there are still a couple hundred million firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens in America. And confiscation of legally owned weapons just ain’t gonna happen.
But it doesn’t need to happen for the globalists, liberals and Washington devotees to win.
Question: What is a gun without ammunition?
Answer: (a) a club
(b) a nice piece of industrial art
(c) a black marketer’s wet dream
(d) all of the above
I’d recommend that you choose D.
Actually, I cannot believe that the gun-haters haven’t gone after ammunition more fiercely over the years. But you and I can still walk into millions of stores and buy ammo. Hell, we can even buy it out of catalogs and on the Internet and have it shipped to us directly.
I realize I am not telling you anything you don’t know. But isn’t it obvious that the Washington crowd is going to try to restrict ownership of high-cap mags and ammo…NEXT?
This week, Democrats in Congress have proffered legislation to restrict the purchase of high-cap mags. New Jersey senator Frank Lautenburg, a longtime gun banner, attached an amendment to a bill before the Senate, amid howls from both sides who want the underlying bill passed. Ain’t it just like DC to think that more laws will solve the problem.
But all the guns, ammo and magazines used in all these murders were purchased LEGALLY. And bad guys who are of a mind to murder with a gun are not prevented by gun laws.
This issue is yet another example of arranging deck chairs on the Titanic. The hue and cry, in Washington, on the various media outlets, and around the office water cooler is meant to obfuscate and mask the foundational issue. Getting people to focus on peripheral issues that don’t mean anything results in millions of eyes diverted from what really matters.
What really matters? Individual liberty and property rights.
I urge you to read two other articles I wrote Gun Control And The Well-Regulated Militia.Then go even deeper into individual liberty and property rights by reading What Are Unalienable Rights?
Bottom line of this article is simply this: The Federal Government of the United States of America is a cancer growing on all of us. There is not one second of your flippin’ life that is not regulated in some way by Washington. All cancers place survival as their Number One goal. And all cancers will continue to survive and grow until they kill their host.
Your choice is to either cut off the cancer or die from the disease.
There is only one way for individuals and groups of individuals to get cancer-free. That is secession. A group of people somewhere in America must make a decision that their own survival as a people is more important than Washington’s survival. They must separate themselves from the United States and become a sovereign nation. Secessionists do not advocate or promote the overthrow of the US Federal Government in any way. They simply seek to break the ties that bind them to DC and seek their own futures and destinies.
American States MUST choose Secession or forever forsake Liberty in North America. We started as thirteen sovereign nations…AFTER WE SECEDED. States MUST return to sovereignty or be counted as cowards and criminals who have sided with the tyrant to enslave the people.
Do you want the liberty to own any sort of firearm you choose? Your only choice for that level of freedom is found in secession.
Secession is the ONLY Hope For Mankind. Who will be first?
It’s Secession or Civil War. You Choose. There Is No Third Choice.

great piece sir…..
I support secession, but I fear we’ll never see it.
Americans today are not the same crowd as those that inhabited our shores in the early nineteenth century. Those folk were fiercely independent, literate, educated in the philosophy of government and heavily community oriented.
This is not so in America today. Our people now are dependent to the extreme of almost brutal entitlement. Literary research and the ability to express one’s ideas in a coherent fashion is a nearly extinct art form. There is no sense of loyalty to the community or in some cases even to one’s family. There is little understanding of how government ought to operate and even where it does exist much of that is whitewashed away by frenzied militaristic nationalism.
Post-constitutional America is a fascist police state and WE ARE PROUD OF IT. A recent NBC poll revealed that the TSA is more popular than congress! There are some that hope for secession via economic collapse, but I fear that the atmosphere of Federal dependence would only be inflamed by such an event and not overthrown.
Secession is history and if America is ever to know the liberty of our fathers again some other method of securing it must be discovered.
but that’s just me, hollering from the choir loft…
I don’t think secession and civil war is an either/or proposition.
I think it is a both/and proposition. Always has been.
Government never surrenders power.
Let us prepare for both.
“Government never surrenders power.”
There’s a corollary, though – the first thing a new government does is to concentrate power to itself, and criminalize any effort to displace it. Secession offers a temporary fix, but eventually, people will be trading one tyrant for another, and the process will have to start again.
Jimmy- you are absolutely right. But start over we must. Thanks, Russ
I’m praying for secession, and in the meantime I’m buying/reloading ammo.
[…] Russell points to a glaring vulnerability. […]
I sure wish AP had it wrong, but I think he’s spot on. After all, why would they surrender power?
The only question is, “What size will the seceding communities be?”
The attack by Maj Hasan should not be lumped in with other mad murderers.
Hasan was following the dictates of Islam. He was killing infidels in order to get to heaven (read the Koran).
First state to secede will be Hawaii. Before that some of the US territories my secede or break association. Some already have, in that last 50 years. The empire will come apart in approximate reverse order of how it was put together. (The same way the Soviet Union lost it’s most recent acquisitions and furthest flung components first.)
Thus other states that will leave early: Alsaka, and after them perhaps Arizona and New Mexico.
While right-wing ideology drivng a seccssion would be put down with force the powers-that-be will not lift a finger to force Hawaii to stay a part of the Union because it will be couched in terms of anti-racism, a meme which is an all powerful spell on the leftist elite running the FedGov machine. Once the precident is set then New Mexico (with it’s large native population) can use the same logic.
Only have some brown-people’s states have been broken off might their be an opportunity for patriots.
Obama real father Marshall Davis tried when he was a live in hawaii but failed now obama is living his dream,look up Obamas real father.It will all fall into place when you do! SCARY
Despite my personal wishes to see a successful second attempt at secession, I see absolutely no infrastructure to support such an event or legitimate leadership to initiate it.
States are nations that have surrendered their sovereignty to the Federal government. State leadership would therefore be vital to initiate a political divorce, and as we all know divorce can be very expensive and devastating. To date, I have read of no legitimately elected leader at the state level that endorses or even appears at rallies and meetings where secession is seriously considered. Passing references to secession are sometimes made, but they carry little more weight than similar references to mom, the flag and apple pie. It would be easier to get an open carry gun law passed in New York City.
Before secession becomes a reality there must be legitimate secessionist leadership, support by corporate and financial interests and at least a modicum of support by the citizens, which as I’ve already pointed out doesn’t exist at all.
Secession is about as likely as the resurgence of democracy in America.
but that’s just me, hollering from the choir loft…
Don’t disagree with you. But secession won’t become attractive until the American economy goes in the toilet. And even then, my prediction is that no more than five states will secede. We promote secession here now, before the crash. It would be dumb to wait until later. Russ
Gentleman, may I point out that Arizona is ALREADY been declared a State non-grata by the Federal Government. Now it’s citizens are being “monitored” more closely because of the possibly of White “racism”. Through executive orders, Obama is flooding the ranks of the Fed Gov with blacks and places like NYFD are firing their Whites on orders by federal judges and allowing blacks into their positions who pass the exam with a 25%.
This is happening is Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Kansas City across the Country. Any White who speaks up is denounced as racist, while the Congressional Black Caucus, the Black Panthers and worst of all, the Nation of Islam focuses on move to consolidate their positions.
He is building a Stasi, a civilian Army based on race.
Whites have let themselves be convinced that it is racist merely to object to dispossession, much less to work for their own interests.
Never before has a people been fooled into thinking that there was virtue or nobility in surrendering its heritage, and giving away to others its place in history, only whites have been tricked into thinking that love for their own people is somehow “hatred” of others.
What can we do? i did not know this.
Read “Molon Labe” to see how secession could be achieved.
