    Hey passive gun-owners: Shut your mouths and turn in your firearms!

    This just came out in clashdaily.com. Deja' vu?


    Sounds like something you might hear from Diane Feinstein or Mayor Bloomberg if they were caught with a hot microphone, but it’s not. It was the sentiment felt by legislators almost 400 years ago. History really does repeat.

    We’ve all felt the ever tightening grip of our powers-that-be slowly restraining our freedom to bear arms. Many of us have had conversations as to what is the dream of the ant-gun folks? Is it really all guns being illegal? Would they really confiscate weapons from citizens? Many pro-gun folks think that could never happen here. Some scoff, no way in you-know-what would our government take our guns. It’s just a political argument to garner power, not a real possibility…really?

    What if I told you it’s already happened here? What if I told you it could easily happen again? This is not a new idea. The reason our founders put the Second Amendment in the Constitution was they had historical precedence that governments most certainly do want to disarm their citizenry … that’s when they become subjects. Here’s a little Early-American history for you … these following events were part of what became known as the Anne Hutchinson Scandals…

    On November 20, the year of our Lord, 1637, The Assembly of the General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony issued several new decrees. One decree stated that, verbal or written defamation of any Magistrate or Court or any of their acts or proceedings could be punishable with fine, imprisonment, banishment or hanging. Secondly, the Court issued a list of seventy-five citizens. These people were accused of having been seduced by Anne Hutchinson and her opinions and revelations. Therefore, they were hereby notified to report to and surrender to the appropriate authorities, all pistols, guns, swords, powder and matches, and any other weapon of warfare not listed, immediately. Furthermore, those listed are instructed to refrain from purchasing and or borrowing any weapons to replace those surrendered.

    Did you catch that? Just talking bad about the court or any leader might get you fined, jailed, banished, or even hanged! Then the benevolent Governor listed actual people from the citizenry to be singled out and disarmed. My ancestor, Philip Sherman was one of these citizens … he chose defiance. They did not surrender their weapons, but they were forced to flee and settled Rhode Island.

    That sounds great. Good for him! Ra! Ra! The reality of it wasn’t fun for them. He had a very pregnant wife and two babies under two years old when they left their thriving business, their nice home, and many of their friends behind and were forced to live in holes they dug out of the ground for an entire winter. Oh, yeah, and a hurricane hit the Rhode Island shores at this time. No matter what century you live in, that is not a happy wife. It would’ve been much easier to just go along, turn in their guns, and live safely in Boston.

    Will we be put in a situation that dire? I think, eventually, yes.

    I guarantee present day gun owners are already on several lists. It’s just a matter of when will we be asked to “report and surrender” our weapons and recant our opinions? Will some new person become the pinnacle of scorn that will require drastic actions like Anne Hutchinson was back then? Maybe? She was just a trigger. We could have one.

    It could be anyone who agitates or aggravates the men/women in power just a little too much. One man seems to be equally bothering to both sides of the aisle. Ted Cruz. Could it become known as the Cruz Scandals? I don’t know, but it was noted by a friend of mine that he wore a Gonzalez-Come and Take It lapel pin on his recent trip to Iowa.

    I’m not saying that Ted Cruz will be our Anne Hutchinson, I’m just pointing out that it’s not all that “wacko-bird” to imagine a world where those of us on the outs with those in power are asked to submit. I think it is time for many Americans to realize the political winds have shifted in our lifetime. It’s not much further to go and we could be re-enacting 1637. Only one problem: unless Texas secedes, we have no Rhode Island to flee to.

    So what do we do? Peacefully and arguably fight till our last breath. Vote for pro-gun candidates. Speak out against your local liberal trashing guns after every massacre. Stay engaged with your favorite gun group. Give them money or time. Most importantly, take your kid shooting or hunting, with real guns, not video games. They need to smell the gun powder and feel the recoil on the shoulder. This fight has been going on for 400 years, it will rage after we are gone. Train up another generation of freedom-loving patriots. Take someone shooting today! Stay active, engaged, and vigilant.

    Otherwise, shut up and turn ‘em in.

    S.C. Sherman’s newest book titled MERCY SHOT is set to release November 30th. This book will make a great 2A gift for Christmas. A story of what happens after the trigger is pulled. Hang on…it’s a wild ride. Check it out at www.facebook.com/mercyshot Pre-ordered copies are all signed personally by S.C. Sherman. To order go to SCSherman:Under Construction

    To government a monopoly on weapons has always meant a monopoly on power. Ant let's face it; this is what government is all about and always has been. Government can do virtually anything that it wants to and even for individuals if it has that all important monopoly on power.

    Progressives believe as their hero Chairman Mao did that all power comes from the barrel of a gun. And American progressives want a a socialist Utopia controlled by the tyranny of the intellectual elite. And they obtain this power with the support of the "useful idiots". This is exactly what is taking place today in this country. And at this point, with the unbelievable ignorance and laziness of a large segment of out society, only the Second Amendment stands between our liberty and a tyrannical government. The founders foresaw this and gave us the Second Amendment. But presently, the attacks by the progressives and their idiot supporters are unrelenting. If we surrender our firearms slavery is very close at hand.

    If we sit by and let the government elite dictate what an affordable insurance policy consists of and allow them to force us to buy it, there's no end to what the government can force us to do.

    But, but, but, 0bama said he was sorry. < Something many of us have known for years. He's a sorry excuse for a president or a human being.



    And those comments just added me to another list I'm sure.
    Most of us used to think the Verizon guy asking "Can you hear me now ?" was about signal reception by another subscriber. Now we know it was about whether the NSA was getting all of it.

  6. That was the British Massachusetts Bay Colony.

    Can't you come up with an example of it happening here in the U.S.A.? I can.

    Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans police confiscated guns without a warrant. It took years going through the courts to finally get a decision that ruled that that act was unconstitutional. Many never did get their guns back or restitution for their confiscated property.

    It really amazes me that nobody fought back against that. Especially in Louisiana. So much for all that "Rebel Spirit" and "Southern Pride" nonsense. At least in Louisiana...

    I am a peaceful person and I don't like violence or conflict. I would always try peaceful resistance first. I would try to vote the anti constitutionalists out of office. I don't like conspiracy theories because they discredit and desensitize people to real issues. But we now have a government that has moved so far from the Constitutional principles that we are no longer a constitutional republic where rule of law is preeminent. We are quickly becoming a police state where the government and law enforcement ignore the constitution and treat citizens like criminals.

    Courage is not rushing headlong into situations without thought or preparation; that's stupidity. But the time is quickly approaching when those who still believe in a constitutionally limited government may have to chose between liberty and slavery. There are still people in this country who believe that the Constitution and Bill of Rights are inviolable. There is no foreign or domestic threat that is worth destroying our liberties. In actuality the biggest threat to our liberty is the developing police state with its constitutional violations. Only a progressive could say that it's necessary to violate the Constitution in order to save it. Deviation from Constitution can not save our country; it can only place our citizens in chains of slavery to a government that isn't worth saving.

    Correct!!! Everytime that the government chips away at our rights it's "for our own good". What a crock.
