Civil war battle lines being drawn as Magpul, Colt, Beretta and other gun manufacturers relocate to pro-Constitution states

Apparently Mike Adams thinks that gun manufacturers leaving their respective anti-gun states isn’t just a business decision, but it’s part of the battle lines being drawn for a civil war. Interesting take…and time will tell.

(NaturalNews) A civil war looks likely to break out in America, and it will pit gun rights advocates (people who love liberty) against gun control zealots (people who hate freedom and love tyranny). The battle lines are being drawn right now as gun manufacturers are leaving anti-Constitution states like Connecticut and Colorado and relocating to pro-Constitution states like Texas and Arizona.

Why does this matter? Because in effect, the anti-Constitution states are disarming themselves by expatriating weapons manufacturers. Thus, they are eliminating their own weapons infrastructure and leaving themselves relatively defenseless should a civil war occur.

States like Texas and Wyoming, where gun manufacturers are increasingly moving and setting up shop, are simultaneously building up a massive arms infrastructure that may ultimately spell the difference between victory and defeat in a civil war.

This is the tragic truth of the current anti-America, anti-Constitution, criminal government takeover happening in multiple states across our Republic right now: those who hate liberty are disarming themselves.

Colt moving to Texas, others likely to follow
If the majority of people in states like New York, Connecticut and Colorado wish to be disarmed slaves living as subjects to a tyrannical government, then they are also going to see more gun owners leaving those states and seeking new lives in gun-friendly states like Texas, Montana, Arizona and Idaho. I can tell you firsthand that here in Texas, we shoot big, heavy firearms on the weekend (.50 BMG), and if the local sheriff shows up, it’s only because they want some trigger time, too! (You gotta pick the right county, though. Stay away from Travis County at all costs…)

Because Texas is a state that upholds the Second Amendment rights of its citizens, Texas is already attracting both gun manufacturers and gun-friendly citizens who are relocating there. For example, firearms maker Colt is leaving Connecticut and moving to Texas, bringing valuable skills, hardware, manufacturing equipment and jobs to Texas.

Magpul industries, makers of 30-round rifle magazines, also says it’s leaving Colorado and looking for a destination more aligned with the Constitutional rights of American citizens.

Such moves are not only valuable for the Texas economy; it also means that once the Civil War is unleashed in America and the collectivist anti-American, anti-Constitution leftist gun grabbers try to force national disarmament at gunpoint, states like Texas will be cranking out Colt rifles and putting them into the hands of freedom fighters who will send as much lead down range as is necessary to reinforce the point that the Bill of Rights is not negotiable.

Texas also controls much of the national energy supply
If leftists living in treasonous states try to push their criminal agenda onto the entire nation, let ‘em figure out how to live without energy, too. Texas not only has the guns, you see… it’s also got the energy. Over one-third of America’s oil and natural gas flows through Texas-based refineries and ports. Any attempt to mess with Texas means the rest of the country won’t get its energy needs met.

Texas can defend its resources with — guess what? — citizens armed with rifles made in Texas, loaded with high-capacity magazines made in Texas, shooting bullets loaded in Texas in full alignment with the Bill of Rights that’s defended in Texas.

That’s why every time another criminal state government (like that of Connecticut) passes another unconstitutional law stripping its own citizens of the right to own firearms, I cheer when the gun manufacturers in that state announce they’re moving out. If Boulder, Colorado wants to fulfill its socialist dreams of total government tyranny, then we all welcome MagPul exiting Boulder and setting up shop in a pro-Constitution zone where the company’s many talents will be fully appreciated.

Traitorous states are disarming themselves
I love the idea that all these companies are moving out of wannabe communist cities like Boulder, or traitorous anti-Constitution states like Connecticut. Because in truth, we want the anti-Constitution states to have no weapons manufacturing infrastructure. It will make them easier to defeat in a military campaign designed to free the enslaved citizens living in those states from tyranny rule.

This fact is multiplied even further by the fact that many U.S. gun and ammo manufacturers are REFUSING to sell equipment to anti-Constitution governments, including the state government of Connecticut. The full list is posted at The Police Loophole.

It’s a huge list of weapons manufacturers and retailers, including Barrett, Midway USA, Cheaper Than Dirt, Larue Tactical, Rock River Arms, Bravo Company USA and more.

What this means is that if the traitorous, criminal federal government attempts to overrun the People with the 2 billion rounds of ammo DHS has been stockpiling, they’re going to find themselves outgunned and out-supplied by the private gun and ammo manufacturing and distribution industry which will absolutely NOT sell any equipment to the federal government.

By the way, private individuals are buying up hundreds of millions of rounds of ammo each week, vastly out-pacing DHS stockpiling. On top of that, there’s also the fact that brain-dead DHS employees are too stupid to know how to use firearms effectively in the first place. If DHS hands all their stockpiled guns to TSA agents, for example, they’re far more likely to shoot off their own toes than wage anything resembling a tactical war. They would be almost instantly out-maneuvered and out-gunned by veterans, hunters, sheriff’s deputies and privately-trained citizens.

It is important to bring all collaborators to justice
It’s going to be hilarious seeing all the governors and state representatives of the traitorous anti-gun states trying to defend themselves against armed arrest squads when they have no weapons.

I’m just curious how all these traitorous lawmakers think they’re going to defend themselves against real justice once the shooting begins. Are they so delusional that they think nobody is recording their names and votes? To be on the record voting to destroy the Second Amendment is nothing less than treason. To cast such a vote in a nation founded on armed resistance to tyranny is nothing less than suicide.

Because the anti-Constitution criminals have disarmed themselves, the pro-Constitution justice teams will be able to march right in, arrest these traitors for sedition and round them up for a mass trial where they can join their fellow traitors from Colorado, New York and California (among other states).

For the purposes of law and justice, it will be very important to make sure that all those who have actively violated the Bill of Rights be arrested, charged and brought to trial for their crimes. Historically, the typical punishment for those found guilty of acts of treason against their own nation has been the death penalty (i.e. firing squad). (I’m not calling for that, nor condoning that. I’m merely pointing out actual history.) Even further, those who have actively conspired to destroy America’s Constitution and Bill of Rights are, by the government’s own definition, “enemy combatants,” meaning they may be held and imprisoned under the rules of war.

It’s time we all began to understand that lawmakers who vote for unconstitutional gun control measures in America are, by definition, “enemy combatants” who are engaged in actual warfare against America. They have moved the nation far past the era of polite debate. These traitors now have put guns to all our heads, demanding we comply or be arrested. In New York and elsewhere, many innocent citizens have already been thrown in jail for the “crime” of exercising their constitutional rights. The war against liberty has begun, and the battle lines are being drawn as gun and ammo manufacturers relocate to states that choose to side with the Constitution rather than outright tyranny.

You would be wise to make a similar choice. If you are a person who believe in anything resembling liberty — owning a gun, growing your own food, homeschooling your children — you will be arrested and imprisoned during the civil war if you stay in the criminal anti-Constitution states.

On the other hand, those very same activities will be openly welcomed in pro-Constitution states that actually abide by the law of the land. And it is those states that will have the hardware advantage once the fighting starts.

For your convenience, here’s a list of criminal, traitorous anti-Constitution states vs. relatively pro-Constitution states: (some states are not listed because they do not neatly fit into either category)

Reason Number 6,237 To Homeschool Your Kids.

2 Rolls Of Duct Tape Please.

From Fox News    By Todd Starnes       4/09/2013

School: Americans Don’t Have Right to Bear Arms.

The father of a Connecticut child is furious after discovering that his son’s school is teaching students that Americans don’t have a Second Amendment right to bear arms

“I am appalled,” said Steven Boibeaux, of Bristol. “It sounds to me like they are trying to indoctrinate our kids.”
Boibeaux’s son is an eighth grader at Northeast Middle School. On Monday his social studies teacher gave students a worksheet titled, ‘The Second Amendment Today.’

“The courts have consistently determined that the Second Amendment does not ensure each individual the right to bear arms,” the worksheet states. “The courts have never found a law regulating the private ownership of weapons unconstitutional.

The worksheet, published by Instructional Fair, goes on to say that the Second Amendment is not incorporated against the states.
“This means that the rights of this amendment are not extended to the individual citizens of the states,” the worksheet reads. “So a person has no right to complain about a Second Amendment violation by state laws.”
According to the document, the Second Amendment “only provides the right of a state to keep an armed National Guard.”
Boibeaux said he discovered the worksheet as he was going over his son’s homework assignments.
“I’m more than a little upset about this,” he told Fox News. “It’s not up to the teacher to determine what the Constitution means.”
Mat Staver, the founder and chairman of the Liberty Counsel, called the lesson propaganda – that is “absolutely false.”
“In fact, the US Supreme Court has affirmed that the Second Amendment ensures the individual the right to bear arms,” Staver told Fox News. “The progressive interpretation of the Second Amendment is that it doesn’t give you the right to bear arms – that it’s a corporate right of the government – but that has been rejected by the Courts.”
Boibeaux’s son’s teacher also told the students that the Constitution is a “living document.”
As noted in the worksheet provided to students – that means “the interpretation changes to meet the needs of the times.”
“The judges and courts of each generation provide the interpretation of the document,” the worksheet states.
Boibeaux called that concept mind-boggling.
It’s not up to the teacher to determine what the Constitution means,” he said. “If you want to learn about the Constitution, recite it word for word.”
Staver said the idea that the Constitution is a living document is another progressive tactic.
“This idea that this school is propagating that the Constitution can simply be changed at the whim of someone – or that the Second Amendment does not protect the individual right to bear arms is absolute propaganda and absolutely false,” Staver said.
Boibeaux said he’s demanding meetings with the principal as well as the board of education.
“I just don’t appreciate this as a parent,” he said. “I expect teachers to teach my kids and tell the truth – not what they think their point of view is.”
Ellen Solek, the superintendent of the school district, told Fox News they have now decided to pull the assignment from the classroom.
“It is no longer an assignment in that particular school,” she said, noting that it was an “administration decision in the best interest of the district.”
She refused to answer any questions about the content of the lesson, how it became a part of the curriculum or how many students were assigned the lesson. She also refused to acknowledge whether the school will apologize to students and parents.
“No comment, thank you,” she said.

Piers Morgan “may” deport himself

morgan

After saying that our Constitution and Bible need to be amended, he’s threatening to deport himself, “maybe”…

If America won’t change its crazy gun laws… I may deport myself

Daily Mail: I have fired guns only once in my life, on a  stag party to the Czech capital Prague a few years ago when part of the  itinerary included a trip to an indoor shooting range. For three hours, our  group were let loose on everything from Magnum 45 handguns and Glock pistols, to  high-powered  ‘sniper’ rifles and pump-action shotguns.

It was controlled, legal, safe and undeniably  exciting. But it also showed me, quite demonstrably, that guns are killing  machines.

Rarely has the hideous effect of a gun been  more acutely laid bare than at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown,  Connecticut, two weeks ago – when a deranged young man called Adam Lanza  murdered 20 schoolchildren aged six and seven, as well as six adults, in a  sickening rampage.

The Sandy Hook massacre brought back such  horribly vivid memories for me of Dunblane, the worst mass shooting in Britain  in my lifetime. I was editor of the Daily Mirror on that day  back in 1996 and will never forget the appalling TV footage of those poor  Scottish mothers sprinting to the small primary school, many already howling  with anguish at the thought of what might have happened to their five-year-old  children. It was a slaughter so senseless, so  unspeakable, that it reduced even hard-bitten news reporters, including me, to  tears.

And as I watched the parents at Sandy Hook  racing to try to find their children, I saw the same images, the same terror,  that engulfed Dunblane. And I felt the same tears welling up. Then, 16 five-year-old children were slain in  their classroom. Now, 20  six- and seven-year-olds. Beautiful young lives  snuffed out before they had a chance to fulfil any of their potential. It made  me so gut-wrenchingly angry.

I have four children. And I still remember  the blind terror I felt when I lost my son Stanley, then aged two, for half an  hour at a cricket match on a field surrounded by a small running creek. I was  sure he’d drowned. But I was lucky: he finally emerged from where he’d been  hiding – big, cheeky grin intact.

Every parent has a similar story. To even try  to conceive of how you would feel if your child was shot multiple times in the  head by a Rambo madman at school is just impossible. I honestly don’t know how  you would ever carry on with life.

But my anger turned to blind rage when I saw  the reaction to this hideous massacre in America. Sales of the specific weapon used, an AR-15  military-style assault rifle, rocketed at gun stores all over America in the  days following the Sandy Hook shooting.

And the country’s biggest gun supplier, Brownells, said it sold more high-capacity bullet magazines in three days than it normally did in three-and-a-half years.

What is behind this apparently insane  behaviour? The answer is, mainly, fear. The well-organised, richly funded, vociferous  pro-gun lobby were straight out, on my CNN show and many other media outlets,  declaring that the only way those schoolchildren would have survived is if their  teachers had been armed. It’s been their answer to every mass shooting.

After the shootings at a cinema in Aurora,  Colorado, in July – where 70 people were hit, the worst victim-count in such an  incident in US history, and 12 people died – sales of guns in the state rose by  a staggering 41 per cent in the following month as people bought into the theory  that if everyone in the theatre had been armed too, they’d have stopped the  shooter. Can you imagine the scene as 200 people pulled out guns and started  blazing away in a dark theatre?

The gun-lobby logic dictates that the only  way to defend against gun criminals is for everyone else to have a  gun,  too. Teachers, nurses, clergymen, shop assistants, cinema usherettes – everyone  must be armed. To me, this is a warped, twisted logic that  bears no statistical analysis and makes no sense. Do you fight drug addiction  with more cocaine? Alcoholism with more Jack Daniel’s? Of course not.

But woe betide anyone who dares suggest this.  In the days following Sandy Hook, I interviewed a number of gun-rights  representatives and grew increasingly furious as they  trotted out these  hackneyed old  disingenuous lines.

Finally, I erupted at one of them, a man with  the unfortunate name of Larry Pratt, who runs the Gun Owners of America lobbying  group. ‘You,’ I eventually declared, ‘are an  unbelievably stupid man.’ And that was the catalyst for the full wrath  of the gun lobby to crash down on my British head.

A petition was created on an official White  House website demanding my deportation for ‘attacking the 2nd Amendment of the  Constitution’. This, of course, is the one that alludes to an American’s ‘right  to bear arms’.

The concerted effort to get me thrown out of  the country – which has so far gathered more than 90,000 signatures – struck me  as rather ironic, given that by expressing my opinion I was merely exercising my  rights, as a legal US resident, under the 1st Amendment, which protects free  speech. But no matter.

This gun debate is an ongoing war of verbal  attrition in America – and I’m just the latest target, the advantage to the gun  lobbyists being that I’m British, a breed of human being who burned down the  White House in 1814 and had to be forcefully deported en masse, as no American  will ever be allowed to forget – Special Relationship notwithstanding.

It’s no exaggeration to say that America’s  unique fondness for guns pretty much got cemented by hatred of us Brits and the  War of Independence. But the main reason the more fervent gun-rights activists  give is a fear of their own US federal government using its army to impinge on  their freedom. The problem is that America’s historical love of guns means the  country is now awash with them – and with gun death.

My argument with guns is not based on some  universal, pathological hatred of them. I’m not a pacifist. Guns win necessary  wars and defeat tyrannical regimes like the Nazis.

Nor do I have a problem with those who use  guns for hunting or for sport. I also understand, and respect, how there is an  inherent national belief in America, based on their understanding of the 2nd  Amendment, that everyone should be allowed to have a gun at home for the  purposes of self-defence.

But where I have a big problem is when the  unfortunately ambiguous wording of the 2nd Amendment is twisted to mean that  anyone in America can have any firearm they want, however powerful, and in  whatever quantity they want.

In conclusion, I can spare those Americans  who want me deported a lot of effort by saying this: If you don’t change your  gun laws to at least try to stop this relentless tidal wave of murderous  carnage, then you don’t have to worry about deporting me.

Although I love the country as a second home  and one that has treated me incredibly well, I would, as a concerned parent  first – and latterly, of a one-year-old daughter who may attend an American  elementary school like Sandy Hook in three years’ time – seriously consider  deporting myself.
