The Heart Of Gun Confiscation Is Money and Evil

by Ed Naile

guns, pistols, rifle, revolvers, and ammunitionWhen a gun control advocate starts with their standard heart-wrenching plea for gun owners to cooperate in helping them make everyone safe, all I hear is gun confiscation. This gun control mantra isn’t about personal safety – it is about disarmament. Any plea by gun grabbers that this isn’t the case is flat out nonsense.

Most vocal gun grabbers have no idea what they are talking about regarding weapons; it’s just a fad opinion they picked up like a teenager going vegan to save the planet. The planning for, funding of, and talking points about gun confiscation comes from select left wing sources – professional anti-Second Amendment planners. Most citizen anti-gun activists pick up their agenda like they stepped in chewing gum. If it weren’t guns, it would be offensive statues, or foul language, or history that doesn’t meet their standard. It never stops.

So, did the Founding Fathers imagine automatic weapons?

I don’t know about specific weapons the Framers had in mind at the time, but I do know Revolutionary soldiers and our militia fired grapeshot out of cannons at soldiers standing in line in front of them. I would imagine they would have been quite happy to have advanced weapons, no matter how sophisticated at the time, compared to our current collection. Grapeshot isn’t a friendly gesture nor is it used for squirrel hunting.

New Hampshire’s General Stark had cannons. General Stark was a British subject before he was an American. He had the right to own cannons before our Second Amendment was written into the US Constitution.

Revolutionary soldiers fired grapeshot, split shot, iron bars with weights on the end, chain, stones, and hot shot, which is shot heated to a glowing red before loading in the barrel of a cannon – all very nice and neat “squirrel hunting ammo.”

Our misguided liberals who champion gun confiscation because that is what is expected of them on campus, at the awards ceremony, or the proper wine and cheese party they need to be seen at, are a sad lot. They have no historical reference, no form of opinion not delivered to them, and the silly idea that any group of people, government officials, or soldiers, are ever going to disarm American citizens. That is just plain fantasy. George Soros knows this. He saw what happened to his NAZI Party. Mayor Bloomberg knows this as well, but he needs to stay “fashionable” in his very limited, very wealthy, out-of-touch with America, NYC crowd.

So anti-gun yelping will continue because being anti-gun is in some circles, “hip,” and for the activist planning and financing this agenda – profitable. Fundraising horror stories that begin before any facts are known about any of the many agendas of the progressives in America is immediate, relentless, and usually, deliberately misleading.

Follow the gun confiscation money and evil ideology, not the anti-gun puppets.

    Repeating arms, which semi- and fully-automatics are, did exist back then. Crude, early stage, and not quite the same as our “arms” of today are, but they did exist and the Founders knew about them.

      They had versions of Gatling guns and all kinds of destructive weapons.
      No “bump stocks” though – much too dangerous:)

    You know that many of the cannon and mortars were commissioned, paid for, and owned by civilians? If I’m not mistaken, more than one of the Stark cannons in Stark Park were found on General Stark’s family property in Hooksett. They were captured from the British. There was a famous cannon in Milford(?), NH that was fired each year for July 4th into the 20th century – privately owned cannon.

    They believed the 2nd Amendment covered them.

      Bryan:
      The cannon New Boston has was donated to the militia by General Stark.
      I used to have it fired in my general direction while doing the New Boston Fourth of July Celebration Woodsman Demo.
      Even in your general direction the thing is loud. I can’t imagine having a barrel full of glowing red steel shot fired from it.
