Forcible Gun Seizures Are Part of the New World Order

Following Hurricane Katrina, government thugs entered New Orleans and seized all firearms, lawfully owned or not. Of course, this left law-abiding citizens defenseless against predators. But what was this all about? Was it about having a trial run, for the day when the Feds finally move nationwide against gunowners? The Second Amendment was placed in our Bill of Rights for a reason. It was not about the rights of hunters to shoot ducks. It was based on the realization that an armed citizenry is the best defense against tyrannical centralized government. Those who wish to seize power and rule by force rather than according to law, must therefore render those to be ruled over disarmed and helpless. That, I submit, is what this is all about. Read the following letter, from the president of the National Rifle Association.

Add to it the fact that under the Military Commissions Act of 2006, resisters can be labeled "unlawful enemy combatants," rounded up and thrown into a legal black hole, without any Constitutional protections.

Dear Fellow NRA Member,

I want you to visit NRA's new web site www.givethemback.com today. Please do it today, when you have a few minutes. This is important.

This site gives gun owners a stark and brutal reminder of why we must defend our firearm freedoms with passion and vigilance in Congress, in state legislatures, in the courts... AND ON ELECTION DAY.

This site makes it clear why gun owners can never, ever sit on the sidelines during an election. This site is a slap-in-the-face wake up call for every gun owner who thinks anti-gun politicians don't have the nerve or the will to confiscate our guns.

And why they must be defeated before they ever get their hands on power.

Take a long hard look at the section titled "Brutally Disarmed" on www.givethemback.com. You'll see unbelievable violence caught by Fox News when police entered the residence of sixty-year old, Patricia Konie, and demanded that she evacuate her home.

You'll see them body-slam this tiny woman into a wall-sending dishes flying-then confiscate her firearm and drag her from her home.

You never saw this footage and you never will see it on ABC, NBC or CBS. You never will see the photos or read about these crimes in The New York Times, The Washington Post or any of the major dailies.

The anti-gun media doesn't want you to see it because it will prove that everything they've been saying about how politicians and bureaucrats can be trusted to protect your Second Amendment rights IS A LIE.

Please help NRA guarantee that the first time guns were confiscated in New Orleans is the LAST time in America. Act now to get your DVD, Never Again! www.givethemback.com.

Patricia Konie is just one of hundreds of gun owners who felt the heavy hand of gun confiscation in New Orleans.

When Hurricane Katrina wrecked New Orleans, the local police chief unleashed a wave of gun confiscations with these chilling words. "No one will be able to be armed. We will take all weapons. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns. All firearms, lawfully owned or not, will be seized."

No words can express the horror of these gun owners at what the anti-gun politicians did to THEM. That's why we've built this web site. I urge you to go to it today...look at this shocking video footage compiled by NRA... Then forward the link to every gun owner you know.

For 25 years, hundreds of anti-gun politicians like Charles Schumer, Dianne Feinstein and Hillary Clinton have been telling me:

"Come on, Wayne, you're just trying to scare people. Nobody's
going to break down doors and take away guns from law-abiding
Americans. ...That will never happen."


Guess what. They did and we have it on videotape...Chilling proof that Katrina blew a gaping hole in Constitutional freedom that a convoy of confiscators will roll through until we roadblock them.

Because what happened in New Orleans can now happen anywhere in America.

Don't let anybody tell you this is the NRA attacking rank and file police. Nothing could be further from the truth. Rank and file police support NRA.

I met a lot of them down in New Orleans. They hated what they saw. They were horrified when they were ordered to confiscate citizens' firearms. Rank and file officers don't want political leaders to make them instruments of tyranny who disarm their fellow townsmen-townsmen who are their friends and families!

The law is the law, the Constitution is the Constitution. If ONE local mayor or police chief can decide what the Second Amendment means, it opens the door to tyranny-where ANY mayor or police chief can say what the Second Amendment means.

We can't allow this reckless disregard for law of our land to become standard operating procedure for any anti-gun government official.

Because you know as well as I do that it's only a matter of time before the next disaster hits. Then what do we do? Sit huddled in our pitch-black homes waiting to be terrorized at the hands of some armed-to-the-teeth thug?

In the days after Hurricane Katrina-right up to today-NRA has fought for the return of the confiscated firearms to their rightful and law-abiding owners.

Even though NRA secured a court order demanding their immediate and unconditional return, almost every single confiscated firearm remains locked in government trailers. Now, New Orleans gun owners are showing up at these trailers, with serial numbers of their firearms, expecting Nagin and his band of anti-gunners to respect the Federal courts.

They are met by stony-eyed bureaucrats who say serial numbers aren't enough- and that gun owners now need PROOF OF PURCHASE of these firearms.

How many of those gun owners do you think had original receipts for those firearms? And even if they did, how many do you think could find those receipts in the wreckage of a hurricane?

Many of these firearms were passed down from father to son, generation to generation. Some are precious heirlooms. Some are collector's pieces won in our wars. Others are workaday hunting rifles or handguns used for self-defense. And they were all lawfully owned and they must be returned to their owners.

But the anti-gun officials who are behind the confiscations are laughing at the law and the courts.

That's why I need your help in putting an end to this bald-faced abuse of power. Can I count on you to Vote Freedom First this Election Day? Can I count on you to spread the word? And help NRA make the first time in New Orleans the last time in America?

I hope your answer is YES, because your NRA is fighting back and we need your help with our three-pronged battle plan...

1. With your help, we will file an injunction against Nagin that bars city
officials from destroying, keeping, selling or auctioning any of the
firearms in their possession.

2. With your help, we will demand that Nagin publish a list of confiscated
firearms and spend the money needed to locate firearm owners and return
every firearm. We will demand that Nagin spend as much money as he
did finding lost voters who moved to other states--voters he needed to win
re-election!

Last, and most important...

3. With your help, we will help file lawsuits on behalf of every victim of this
gun confiscation, so that Nagin, Compass and Riley pay civil AND financial
penalties for their illegal assaults on our freedoms.

The gloves are off and we will use every tool and tactic within our reach. We will shoot holes in every legal trick and stalling tactic. We will answer them blow for blow.

That's why I'm also asking you to make a special contribution help freedom-loving Americans win this critical battle for the future of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Your contribution will help us send this crystal-clear message to every anti-gun mayor and police chief in America: If you trample our Constitution and seize guns from the law-abiding, you will pay a heavy price.

I'm making this request to friends who've pulled NRA through thick and thin. Friends who've come to NRA's rescue when freedom was on the line. I'm making this request of you because we don't have any time to waste. There won't be a second chance to win this fight.

This is the second Battle of New Orleans. And just like freedom-loving Americans did in 1814 when the British came to seize our guns and liberties, we will fight this battle to the bitter end.

You know as well as I do that it's only a matter of time before the next disaster hits. Whether it's a terrorist attack, earthquake, wildfire or bird flu-when government breaks down and the police are AWOL-the only thing that stands between you and injury, assault or death is your Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

With your help we're going to make the first time in New Orleans the LAST time in America.

Even though you didn't ask for it, this fight is your fight, too. And it's a fight you and I need to win together. Thanks for your help.

Wayne LaPierre
Executive Vice President
National Rifle Association

Comments:
Wayne can camp it up all he likes, but he's been in bed with tyranny for a long time. The NRA is the gun-owner's enemy. This article is just a weak attempt to shore up against further losses from those who realize too often NRA has supported legalizing gun confiscation through the back door, by supporting and helping write all manner of legislative compromises. They have become part of what they once swore to fight; they are part of government tyranny.
