Former justice Stevens wants to change the Constitution [USA Today 4/22] “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the Militia shall not be infringed”.
When the power elite has an issue they want to change, say smoking, gay marriage or gun control, they always get some old fart who has nothing to lose to start the ball rolling. That is why the controlled media gives all this attention to an inconsequential figure like John Stevens.
To most of us, the very idea of taking our guns are fighting words. But communists know that a lot can be accomplished in the long march. Look at the size of government? Our stupid long wars, abortion, illegal immigration is no longer a crime. Things that would have seemed ridiculous 50 years ago are now de rigueur. That is why propagandists have to control the media and the schools. Hit ’em young, hit ’em often.
Here in Iowa, how many times have the gun grabbers like Rekha Basu or Carlos Jayne stated that they just want “reasonable” gun control? Oh, they only want “sensible legislation”. Bull hockey. You can’t subdue an armed populace. Those bastards know that. They have to have your gun. They have thrown down the gauntlet.
Make no mistake about tyrants like Stevens and others on the left, in the very same article in which he proposes disarming you, he justifies government surveillance of the people. They always say that Stevens was nominated by a Republican. Bull hockey, he was nominated by Gerald Ford.
