(NaturalNews) On the face of it, there is absolutely no sense to the idea that one million New York gun owners should be declared “guilty” because one crazy man went nuts in Connecticut and committed mass murder. Yet that’s the argument Gov. Cuomo used to rush through gun registration and confiscation legislation that’s now law in the state of New York.
The law was forced through the state legislature with such speed that it instantly turned all of New York’s police officers into felony criminals because they were carrying more than the allowed seven rounds of ammo per magazine. Retroactive changes to the law had to be hurriedly made to exclude law enforcement from imminent arrest and prosecution by the “mafia” Cuomo administration. Cuomo meant for his unconstitutional attack to target so-called “civilians,” not law enforcement!
But now, those citizens are increasingly saying “F&%# YOU, CUOMO” (literally, see below) and announcing they are not going to register their guns under Cuomo’s tyrannical, illegitimate and blatantly illegal regime.
“Mass resistance” plans underway
Gun owners are “going Gandhi” in New York and planning mass civil disobedience to protest the actions of the criminal mafia known as the Cuomo administration.
“Gun owners and even some lawmakers are planning what has been dubbed potentially the largest act of civil disobedience in state history,” reports The New American. “Preparations are already being made for mass resistance.”
What form will that resistance take? It may start as an info war, and then escalate into protests. But if Cuomo does not relent and repeal his unconstitutional, illegal and immoral mandate against law-abiding gun owners, there is a good chance this conflict may “go hot” and lead will start flying.
“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” – George Washington
It is every New Yorker’s duty to resist tyranny
Let me state on the record that it is not merely a right to resist unlawful tyranny, but it is your DUTY to resist it and fight back via morally-justifiable means to restore constitutional law and the Bill of Rights in America. Anything less is a betrayal to the principles of America.
Any state government which would attempt to oppress the constitutional rights of its citizens and disarm them, making them absolutely defenseless against criminals and runaway government tyranny, is an illegitimate, unlawful government being run by criminals. That government must be thrown out of power and replaced with a legitimate, law-abiding government that honors the rights of citizens (and the limits of power placed on government).
On this issue, New Yorkers have declared their line in the sand. One million New Yorkers own firearms, and relatively few of them plan to comply with Cuomo’s gun registration plans, knowing full well that registration is just the first step to forced confiscation.
After all, why would the state of New York need to know who owns all the guns if it wasn’t planning to do something with that list? Throughout world history, gun registration lists have almost always become gun confiscation lists where governments go door to door with armed troops, demanding at gunpoint that people turn in the firearms they previously registered.
(Seriously, you’d have to be a complete idiot to comply with Cuomo’s gun-grabbing scheme. Do you really want Cuomo’s mafia goon squads to know exactly what guns you own and where you keep them?)
From The New American:
“They’re saying, ‘F— the governor! F— Cuomo! We’re not going to register our guns,’ and I think they’re serious. People are not going to do it. People are going to resist,” explained State Rifle and Pistol Association President Tom King
Gandhi believed in armed defense against tyranny
Gandhi is perhaps best known as a pacifist who helped stage mass civil disobedience in the face of the imperial occupation of his nation by enemy forces (the British). But what is not well known is that Gandhi was only a pacifist because his people had been disarmed by the occupying British military. Had Gandhi’s countrymen possessed arms, they would have fought back against the British empire’s illegal and imperial occupation many years earlier.
“I do believe that where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence I would advise violence,” Gandhi wrote in his famous work, Doctrine of the Sword.
He goes on to say:
I advocate training in arms for those who believe in the method of violence. I would rather have India resort to arms in order to defend her honor than that she should in a cowardly manner become or remain a helpless witness to her own dishonor.
Never heard these quotes from Gandhi? That’s because you’ve been taught a false history on Gandhi and most other topics. Martin Luther King, for example, also possessed many weapons for self defense and even sought a concealed carry permit to help protect himself from violence.
By “going Gandhi” with mass civil disobedience, New Yorkers are following in the footsteps of human history’s greatest freedom fighters and human rights activists. Self defense is a fundamental human right, and any who try to take this right from the People are, by definition, oppressors of human freedom and civil liberties.
Will New York police fire on their own neighbors and relatives?
Now the question becomes this: Will law enforcement officials across New York now wage an actual shooting war with private gun owners who refuse to comply with an illegal, unconstitutional and immoral law hastily passed by Cuomo and other enemies of America?
If so, New York police, state troopers and other law enforcement officials should expect to take considerable casualties as they attempt to disarm the citizenry. As has been written about in many places across the internet, including in articles by firearms instructor Paul Howe, any members of law enforcement who engage in armed raids against the homes of gun owners will likely see their own homes and families targeted with retaliation. Yes, we are talking about the potential of a New York guerilla war where those who participate in gun confiscation are put on “fair game” lists to be targeted and taken out. This is what is being discussed across the ‘net, on blogs, in personal conversations, on radio shows and elsewhere.
I was as surprised to learn this as you may be right now. The reaction to Cuomo’s gun grab has been outspoken and powerful. Apparently I am not the only one in America who has committed to defending my liberties with my life, if necessary. There are a great many law-abiding citizens of this country who have joined together in saying “THIS is our line in the sand! Do NOT cross this line!”
Cuomo has crossed that line, and although for the record I do not advocate the use of violence to resolve conflicts, I cannot help but admit that Cuomo may very well be placing his own life, the life of his family members, and the lives of his staffers in imminent danger if he does not reverse his decision. What’s brewing right now is a kind of civil war in New York, and there are apparently all kinds of gun owners across the state who are prepared to die rather than register their firearms. For this reason, and because I do not wish to see any violence occur over this issue, Cuomo needs to immediately back down and reverse his gun registration law in order to prevent bloodshed.
Yes, it has come to this. And while I do believe that gun owners in New York and across America are incredibly tolerant, patient and even humble people, when they are blatantly placed in the crosshairs of the threat of government violence against them if they do not comply with unreasonable, unconstitutional and immoral demands, they can and will become Cuomo’s worst nightmare.
There are one million gun owners in New York. If one percent rise up and decide to fight back against tyranny, Cuomo will be facing a force of 10,000 armed civilians rising up against him. How do you stop 10,000 armed, angry civilians from marching on the state capitol? You don’t. If these 10,000 people decide to pick up arms and march for their rights and freedoms, they will win the showdown.
The only way New York gun owners lose is if they lay down their arms voluntarily and submit to Cuomo’s unconstitutional mandates. Then again, any person who lays down his arms in the face of tyranny probably doesn’t deserve to be an American in the first place. This nation was founded on the courage of strong-willing men and women who were willing to take a stand for liberty and justice. That spirit of America appears to be rising again in New York, and Cuomo seems to be on a collision course with history in the making… the kind of history that results in great loss of life followed by a backlash of the People against out-of-control government oppression.
Ultimately, one possible outcome of all this is Cuomo being forced to flee New York and seek refuge in another state (or another country), where he will no doubt face extradition charges to bring him back to New York where he can be tried for his crimes against the people of the great state of New York.
