In what would likely end in horrific violence, a Virginia democrat is considering using the National Guard to enforce the upcoming draconian gun laws. Using the national guard would pit the government against the people and perhaps show the true colors of the police state we are living under.
“I’m not the governor,” said Representative Donald McEachin, a Virginia Democrat, according to a report in The Washington Examiner, “but the governor may have to nationalize the National Guard to enforce the [new gun control] law[s].” The suggestion of the instigation of violence should send chills down the spine of anyone who just wants their freedom and the shackles of the state removed permanently.
Democrats in Virginia have already pre-filed bills to mandate universal background checks; to limit handgun purchases; to raise age limits on would-be firers; to redefine the term assault weapon and impose bans on buys of certain guns and magazines. And more. –Washington Times
In the enforcement of any laws, the military should never play a role. That’s the purpose of “the thin blue line” or “law enforcement.” However, some jurisdictions have made themselves gun law sanctuaries claiming that their sheriffs and police officers will not enforce this type of tyranny. History, however, has proven otherwise.
Granted, an act, signed in 1878 to prohibit federal troops from being used to enforce domestic laws, carves out exceptions for National Guard members operating under the authority of the states. But the spirit of the restrictions should still apply. Military is military, however, the “rule of law” only applies to those who don’t write them. On this, on enforcement of partisan political gun control, neither active Army nor National Guard should play a role, but if history is any indication, people are all too willing to commit acts of violence against each other because of the perception of authority. But it’s hard to say what could happen. People like getting their paychecks and if it comes down to no longer getting paid and using violence against their fellow Americans, the state of Virginia could be in a lot of trouble.
McEachin’s statements prove that the government will stop at nothing – not even violence with guns- to take away the guns of peaceful people. This is the government we warned about and this is the reason the second amendment was written. Democrats seem all too gleeful to see just how far Americans will go to preserve what little is left of their freedom.
