Remember when Barack Hussein Obama informed us that we didn’t build what we built? Somebody else built that, he lectured.
And who was that somebody? Well, in the world according to Obama, the work is always done by the government, government employees. You know, those hard-working, delightful and diligent bureaucrats we deal with at, oh, say the DMV or the EPA.
In the wake of the Newton massacre, the Democrats—they should rebrand honestly as Democrat-Socialists—are on a roll, explaining to those of us who cling to our Bibles (Torah) and guns, that our weapons are really not our weapons. They really belong to the government.
Let’s hear from Rep. Dan Muhlbauer (Democrat-Socialist) from Iowa:
In an interview with the Daily Times Herald in Caroll, Iowa, state Rep. Dan Muhlbauer said governments should start confiscating semi-automatic rifles and other firearms.
Muhlbauer, a Democrat from the western Iowa town of Manilla, is a cattleman and farmer. The newspaper reported that he owns a .410 shotgun, a .22 rifle and a .22 pistol.
“We cannot have big guns out here as far as the big guns that are out here, the semi-automatics and all of them,” Muhlbauer told the newspaper during a December 19 audiotaped interview. “We can’t have those running around out here. Those are not hunting weapons.”
Full story at The Daily Caller.
Presumably, Dan took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Presumably, Dan is aware of the Second Amendment, which stipulates that “the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.”
But it seems as if Dan is kind of—and I say this with all due respect—dumb.
He thinks the Second Amendment is there to protect hunter’s rights.
Okay, I’m not a lawyer. I’m certainly not a constitutional scholar. I’m just a Hollywood screenwriter. But even I know that the Second Amendment is there because our founding fathers understood that a free people can only remain free when they have recourse to overthrow a tyrannical government. And you can’t do that overthrow thing without guns, lots of them.
Yes, Dan, the Second Amendment is there because of politicians like you, like Michael Bloomberg, like the endless parade of Democrat-Socialist-aspiring tyrants who seek to centralize government power.
Politicians like Barack Hussein Obama.
As a Jew with a looong memory, let me just remind my fellow Jews—speaking to the more liberal of the tribe—that more Jews have been oppressed, tortured, and slaughtered by powerful governments than by any other force on the face of the earth. Look, I get it: You think the American government is different. After all, we have made it in America, the goldeneh medinah. No pogroms, no concentration camps, no forced conversions. Your kids get to go to Harvard and Yale (where they learn to be obedient Democrat-Socialists), and you figure it could never happen here. But really, are you that naive? Have you forgotten that your ancestors said the same thing about Germany? Well, the German government outlawed the possession of private weapons. So did the Bolsheviks. And you know what happened next… don’t you?
The Second Amendment is not for hunters, not for target shooters, not even to protect us from criminals in cases like this.
The Second Amendment is there to protect Americans from a tyrannical American government, an American government that ignores, or tries to nullify the Constitution.

Robert sits up in bed, reading Carl Theodor Dreyer and Ordet: My Summer with the Danish Filmmaker by Jan Wahl. Amazing, Dreyer—one of the greatest directors who ever lived—was going to make a film about Jesus all in Hebrew. He even planted a tree in Israel where he planned to shoot the film.
Karen sits at the bedroom desk, scoring a psych test.
Robert: I’m going to buy a shotgun, before they become illegal.
Karen: DO IT ALREADY!
