What Will You Do?

by Mitch J. McConnell
July 4, 2001

If you are a gun owner, chances are you have listened with apprehension to the increased drumbeat for more gun control. You may even have started to believe what some have been saying all along, that the statist majority is really getting ready to propose gun confiscation, as evidenced by the state of California’s mandatory recall of AK-class weapons.

They are betting that you will not be willing, in the final analysis, to give up your comfortable, suburban house, or be willing to risk the money you have worked so hard to put away for your children’s education (after all, it wouldn’t be fair to them, would it?), or be willing to risk hardly anything at all.

Or maybe it’s your spouse who is unwilling. What will you do then?

This is what the statists are counting on, and there is a good chance they will be right.

The other trick they will pull is to send, wherever possible, local people to do their dirty work. Thus, if you live in the country, it may be the police chief that you went to high school with who is forced to come and demand that you turn over your handgun. They know it will be that much harder for you to live up to the brave bumper-sticker words about “prying my gun from my cold, dead hands”.

When faced with a potential situation like this, it is important to go over your response in advance. Without such preparation and when caught off-guard, it is very easy to depart from your intended response.

Remember that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Or remember your old Boy Scout motto: Be Prepared.

Consider various scenarios that may occur and plan your reaction. That may mean stockpiling food and weapons; it may mean finding a safe house for your children. You may wish to discover now rather than later whether or not your spouse will be with you or not. Many may opt for slavery rather than endangering their children's lives, although the socialist government that is coming will almost certainly endanger them more.

Here is one suggestion if the scenario does occur. If you are forced to give up your guns without having had a backup plan, let that moment be the start of your guerilla war with the unconstitutional United States Federal government. That means finding others who were caught off guard and organizing. It means re-arming with military-class weapons. It means strategizing about the best way to reclaim your freedom. It may mean declaring cyber-war. And finally, it means a commitment to use force to defend your God-given rights as set forth in the Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights.

Remember that Thomas Jefferson said that

"Whenever a government becomes destructive of these ends [the right to life, liberty, and happiness], it is the right and duty of the people to abolish it".

M.J. McConnell

The maintenance of the right to bear arms is a most essential one to every free people and should not be whittled down by technical constructions. [State vs. Kerner, 181 N.C. 574, 107 S.E. 222, at 224 (1921)]
