Watcher’s Council Nominations…From My Cold Dead Hands Edition

Why Now is the time to consider owning gold
 LastRound:daybydaycartoon

Tyranny always wears a face of mocking, condescending faux concern on the Left, as Democrat dominated Blue States compete to see who can can come up with the most egregious laws to make an ordinary citizen exercising their constitutional Second Amendment rights expensive, difficult and even shameful. New York’s law actually banned non-existent magazines and is now going through the embarrassment of having its governor appeal to the state legislature to repeal a law he shoved through in the dead of night would make it illegal for any New York resident to own a firearm…even the police.

California and Connecticut, who already have ridiculous anti-gun laws on the books have proposed sweeping bans on owning over 100 different types of weapons by law abiding citizens, and are now weighing proposals to charge an annual to fee for the right to to buy ammo and slapping heavy ‘sin’ taxes on the purchase price.

Since these laws would make it prohibitive for minority families to protect themselves, such laws are not only unconstitutional and in violation of both the Seond and Fourteenth Amendments, but racist.

A number of other states are not far behind. And in the UN, the Obama Administration instructed its ambassador to vote for the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which would create a national firearms registry overseen by UN bureaucrats that is currently prohibited by federal law.

Make no mistake that the desired end result by our ruling class is confiscation and a disarmed populace. As Machiavelli said in The Prince, when you’re disarmed, you’re not only helpless but despised.

Welcome to the Watcher’s Council, a blogging group consisting of some of the most incisive blogs in the ‘sphere, and the longest running group of its kind in existence. Every week, the members nominate two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council.Then we vote on the best two posts, with the results appearing on Friday.
