Democrats at both the state and federal level keep pushing for taxes on gun purchases and registration. Democrats claim that they really aren't interested in reducing gun ownership or confiscating guns, but then you have statements such as this. From the New Jersey Star-Ledger:
As a committee hearing on new gun-control legislation began winding down Thursday, three state senators started chatting amongst themselves... What they didn't realize was the microphone was still on.
A recording of the exchange — which appears to be between Democrats Loretta Weinberg, Sandra Cunningham and Linda Greenstein — ended up on YouTube, and gun supporters said today they were upset by the remarks.
The recording opens with what sounds like a senator or staff member saying, "We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate"...
Some of the new laws that will be voted on Monday in New Jersey will substantially raise the cost of obtaining a gun.
• Reinstating a seven-day "cooling-off" period. When someone qualifies for a permit, they would have to wait seven days before buying the gun — an effort to prevent domestic violence and suicide. The original package of bills would have removed the seven-day waiting period. "Someone who is heated and angry can’t just go out to the store and buy a gun right away," said Nicola Bocour, the project director of anti-gun violence group Ceasefire New Jersey.
• Currently, New Jersey residents have 90 days to buy a gun after getting a permit. Under the bill, they would have four years, but changes were made to make it easier for law enforcement to yank the permit.
• Residents who apply for permits would have to undergo training.
• All sales of ammunition online would be electronically sent to the State Police...
Waiting periods are associated with increased crime rates against women. The costs of mandated training will make it so that poor people who live in high crime urban areas will be disarmed.
These Democrats are the lowest of the low. If you trust a Democrat on anything -- anything -- you're gonna end up in the metaphorical rice paddies like a North Korean.
Update: Joe Huffman says the voice is that of State Senator Sandra Cunningham.
Hat tip: BadBlue Guns.
Marginally moral people suddenly given great power, access to other public money and immunity from a completely corrupt 'news' media with political opposition only from a cowardly, inept GOP leadership.
What could go wrong?
Yep - so much for all the libtards and hoplophobes claiming that 'no one wants to take your guns'. Of course never mind that has been their end game all along (as epitomized by 'diefi's famous turn them all in comment).
"metaphorical", really? I know, you are trying to help the timid take a step in the smart direction. Still, I think the truth should be told, unedited.
Ya, Hitler understood "gun control" real well. Kind of reminds one of some other tyrants we know around here. You control the guns, you control everything. pretty simple, like he said it best:
"It is convenient to have a system of laws where everyone is a criminal."
The unintended consequences of these scum, and that is exactly what these little tin pot tyrants are, is inescapable.
Our primal rights are not something these motherfuckers have the power to grant. They are ours period. End of the debate.
The arrogance and hubris of these treasonous scum is mind boggling. Who do they think they are, gods or something?
Stripping law abiding moral motivated people of their primal dignity and rubbing their noses in it is a very bad idea.
Most preppers should be familiar with the ‘rule of three’ – this means having one main method of an important function and a backup for it and a backup of the backup. It doesn’t necessarily entail 3 versions of the same thing but distinctly different ways of accomplishing a priority task.
In the case of personal security arrangements, the main or level 1 version would be firearms within easy reach within a structure. These would be the primary weapons used for hunting and defence.
And while it’s been said that the time to hide weapons is the time to bring them out, the rule of three would dictate that a level 2 backup of the primary firearms should at least be considered. There are no guarantees as to the future but unknown threats such as governmental seizures or devastation of a structure must be considered in all plans and preparations.
Level 2 backups should be outside the immediate area but easily accessible in an underground or similar storage cache. The weapons should be set in waterproof PVC piping or the similar waterproof containers with additional scrap metal and scent distraction materials scattered about to foil determined searches. The presumption here would be that even with destruction of a home or bug out location or search and seizure operation a set of weapons would still be immediately available to the prepper.
Level 3 backups are a step removed from level 2 in that this backup is set at a distance and without a personal connection to the prepper. This means an underground cache on raw land unlikely to be disturbed in the near future. No personal connection means weapons purchased privately beyond the government’s prying eyes.
Advantageous level 3 locales would be places where the cache would likely remain undisturbed, has a ready supply of decoy material nearby and relatively accessible. Long lost junkyards or metal dumping grounds would a good choice as well as rural backwoods with their requisite amounts of discarded trash. Such places would readily discourage searches with metal detectors and in the case of rural road frontage be of such vast amounts as to make detection of the cache highly improbable. Weapons destined for level 3 caches should be of the lower cost realm and lacking a pedigree lest they be inadvertently discovered.
Just as an aside, when data is stamped in materials such as metal, the stamping process tends to place the molecules a fair distance beneath the data under stress. This stress can manifest itself in form of visual indications even after the data has been abrasively removed. Grinding the material down to remove the indications of the data leaves the stress in molecules below and certain chemicals – acids and the like can be utilised to determine what the data was while still present on the surface of the material. Given this interesting phenomenon, it would seem like applying additional stress on the molecules would cause this not to be the case. Writing over the data would scramble the stresses within the material while rendering the data unreadable. Hammering the data in the same region would not only remove the original data but also remove the original l data’s stress indications deep in the material. In most cases areas with a great deal of metallic debris would be less than ideal for searches of this attribute of the cache. By the same token, the inclusion of chemical propellant components should suffice the placement of similar component with similar chemicals in the surroundings. Several handfuls of spent casing from the local range should do the trick and would satisfy both decoy requirements.
In summation, it should be incumbent on the prepper to have 3 personal security backups as with every other functional task such as the procurement of water. For most preppers, firearms are a priority are a foundational basis on their survival. Loss of personal security arrangements renders all other preps useless.
