Today saw many nails in the coffin of liberty, the worst of which involved TJIC.
Well, TJIC got his Massachusetts FID* reissued, and has reapplied for an MA LTC**.
Now the local po-po*** is surrounding his crib, wanting to inspect the premises. Without a warrant. In the suburbs of Boston. On Independence Day.
The closing comments from TJIC is they have a lawyer, Jennifer’s firearms were illegally confiscated, and they took his FID without cause or warrant.
Go read the comment thread if you want the full details, suffice it to say there’s nothing about that situation that seem right or legal.
Moving forward, the third Amendment was dealt a blow as well. (It happened yesterday but I just discovered it).
Henderson police arrested a family for refusing to let officers use their homes as lookouts for a domestic violence investigation of their neighbors, the family claims in court.
Anthony Mitchell and his parents Michael and Linda Mitchell sued the City of Henderson, its Police Chief Jutta Chambers, Officers Garret Poiner, Ronald Feola, Ramona Walls, Angela Walker, and Christopher Worley, and City of North Las Vegas and its Police Chief Joseph Chronister, in Federal Court.
See that, that’s agents of the government declaring the 3rd amendment no longer necessary and dead. I figured that one would get a few more years but at this point we’re screwed.
No one in the government is trying to stop these abuses or otherwise reign in the problem. It has become us vs them. The best example of this was the cop from the TJIC incident on the 4th.
At the end, some of the cops who ransacked the house tried to shake hands with me. "No hard feelings".
I refused and said "Gentlemen, please think about what you’re doing. On the fourth of July, the day we celebrate freedom, you stole legally owned firearms from a women who is engaged to a guy who made a joke you don’t like. You are not the good guys. You are ‘just doing your jobs’. Look in the mirror. You’re the bad guys."
Response: "I’m sorry you feel that way. Have a good Fourth."
I am at a loss for words and frankly, I’m needing to sit down with the brain trust and see what, if anything can be done. There’s three options to instill political change, the soap box, ballot box, and cartridge box. It appears the first two aren’t working in protecting freedom and liberty and our would be masters want to disarm us because they know what’s coming.
If you’re the preying type, I highly suggest you start because I’m afraid, quite soon, shit’s going to go hot in this cold war. There’s only so much abuse that can be taken, especially when the person doing the abuse is protected from all repercussions and consequences.
I leave you with this lesson from the 20th century:
If a bureaucrat, or a soldier sent by a bureaucrat, comes to knock down your door and confiscate your firearms– kill him. The disarmament of law-abiding citizens is the required precursor to genocide.
Now is the time to make your plans and if they mean to have a war, let them have one. No warrant, no cause, you have every right to resist.
