You Don’t Own Your Guns! Confiscate Those Weapons!

armed_jews

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.

Interpolation

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?

End Interpolation

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.

INT. CASA AVRECH, MASTER BEDROOM – NIGHT

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!

Seraphic Secret has joined the splendid organization: Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.

And take a look at what happens when there’s a Jew Without a Gun.

Comment Rules


Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Stumbled across your page and love it.
    You are correct about forgetting our past. People who dont believe Tyranny can not happen here in the US, Need not look further then the Internment of the Japanese Americans during WWII. Like the Jews of Europe, they were forced to register with the government, and then rounded up and forced into Internment Camps. Even those with 1/16 of japanese ancestory.
    I enjoy reading your writings and will continue to follow.

    Oh, and on the recommendation of getting am AR-15 as a home defense weapon, yes it has virtually no recoil but as a centerfile rifle that thing would go through your hose and into another.

      Getting hollow-points helps.  Solid bullets (forgot formal name, sorry) for the range, and hollow-points for self-defense, because hollow-points are less likely to go through the target.

    Good post and comments. I’m not going to recommend any particular firearm (you’ll get plenty of those from your readers) just try to pick something that fits your needs. Though I advise you and your wife to become very used to handling your weapon. A lot of firing practice and unloaded handling. So when necessary, picking it up and using it is as natural as opening a door. Good luck and enjoy. Oh yeah, if you have to use it, aim center mass and fire until the threat is GONE.

    Robert,
     
    Just started reading this post and before I had even finished (or saw Karen’s response to you) – I had picked-up the phone and instructed my husband to buy a shotgun NOW (he thought I wanted him to stop for groceries;) – because Robert says they’ll soon be illegal.  His response?  Yes, Dear;)
     
    P.S.  Enjoyed the new book very much!

      You and Karen need to meet. Yesterday, I bought a Remington 870 Express,.20 gauge shotgun. The recoil of a .12 gauge would flatten Karen. So glad you enjoyed my book.

        Thank you for the tip, Robert.  I showed your comment to my husband – he did a bit of research – and he agrees with your choice.  Particularly, since he’s concerned about me being able to manage a shotgun.  He’s purchasing ours tomorrow – along with a ‘reloading kit’.

    For what it’s worth, the single best weapon a family can have inside their home for defense is an AR15, the civilian variant of the M16.  First and foremost, it has almost zero recoil. That means virtually anyone of whatever level of strength can use it effectively. That is especially true in situations where multiple rounds need to be fired. Two, it fires a small round, but at incredibly high muzzle velocity. The “stopping power” of the round comes from cavitation, both temporary and permanent, inside the body. What that means is that you don’t have to be a perfect shot. A pistol round, where the damage comes completely from the round itself, needs to hit something vital to stop a person. A 5.56 round needs to get in the general area of something vital, with cavitation caused by the high speed round in fact hitting the vital area.
    In comparison, all pistols have recoil, with the amount varying with the size and load of the bullet. For instance, a .45 caliber has a fair amount of kick.  To share a very embarrassing story, I have a scar on my forehead from 3 decades ago from the 1st time I fired one and, being unprepared for the recoil, my arms rotated backwards at the elbow until stopped by planting the weapons site in my forehead.
    To minimize the recoil problem with pistols, you have to go down to smaller caliber pistols carrying weaker bullets. Thus, as you get into categories of pistols that a weak woman or a small teen could fire effectively, you get to weapons that would be having far less “stopping power” against a determined attacker.  Robert, in the story you linked above, where a woman emptied a .38 into her attacker, it is worth noting that the attacker walked away from the attack, taking minutes to collapse from blood loss.  Had she missed with more than one of her rounds or had she been facing multiple attackers, the story may not have had such a happy ending of her escaping unharmed with her children.
    Bottom line, banning the AR15 would ban the single most effective weapon for home defense on the market. Moreover, the people hardest hit by the ban would be women and teens, who would be forced to use less effective weapons to still be able to defend themselves.
    Lastly, as to those politicians discussing confiscation of weapons, I have to agree with Dr. Krauthammer on Fox News tonight – that would be the start of an insurrection.

      As always, your comments,and your essential blog, are models of clarity and common sense. When I was in my local gun shop yesterday, AR 15s were flying off the shelves. Everyone I spoke to fully expects Obama to use an executive order to ban AR 15s. The store was a haven of Conservatives here in the People’s Republic of California.

    A small point of history in the 1840’s, in America, the Governor of the state of Missouri,   issued an Executive Order to Kill or Drive Out All the Mormons in the state. That order was not rescinded until  
    “In 1976, citing the unconstitutional nature of Boggs’ directive, Missouri Governor Kit Bond formally rescinded it.[3]’
    Wiki.
    Who the H_ll needs a congress when the executive can make up or defend only those laws he likes.
    This nation was founded with the blessings of the All Mighty for the liberty of the individual, “not the collective”.
    May G_d, our Heavenly Father, still bless, he who seeks him and to do righteousness.
    Bless you all.

    But here’s the problem with the idea that private gun ownership can do anything to aid in fighting a despotic regime. All the regime needs to do is outlaw guns, as is being contemplated here at this very moment. The guns are then confiscated, and that is that. What will gun owners do if Obama issues some kind of executive order banning guns (as he is presently threatening to do)? What if he makes it retroactive and confiscates them?

    I’ll say it with no due respect – Dan Muhlbauer really is dumb. 
     
    An honest argument for the 2nd is that we have the right to carry the same weapons a soldier would use today since that’s what militia members used in the 18th Century. The fact that gun advocates generally agree that the right does not extend beyond semi-automatic weapons seems like an awfully big concession that is always overlooked by gun prohibitionists.
     
    I hate the arguments about how such and such gun is not used by any serious hunter. The 2nd is about the ultimate check on our government. The right to keep and bear arms is not a right granted by the government to we the peons. The constitution is a limit on the government. They can no more grant us rights than I can give birth.
