Why Gun Control Would Fail: U.S. Gun Owners Have Nearly 400 Million Guns

Exactly! This is why some need to calm down.
If—
BY RUDYARD KIPLING
(‘Brother Square-Toes’—Rewards and Fairies)

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

One of my favorite poems. If they ban Kipling from public schools and museums - it will be over this. Too bad I know it by heart and can recite it to my kids regardless :slight_smile:

Gun control will fail because too many politicians have money invested in firearm and ammunition manufacturers, or so I’ve heard.:wink:

My how quickly people forget the events that transpired during Katrina. :thinking: Confiscation will not be easy to implement nationally, however, this is one of the goals of the NWO. Make no mistake this is what all the anti-2A policies will drive towards. Remember disarming the population has been practiced repeated throughout history with deadly consequences.

The far left socialists running everything don’t care if they lose money, it’s about control and subversion. Social media platforms and companies that have a far left bent are funded by these traitors and billionaires alike and only care about the agenda.

Prohibition didn’t pan out so well either. This will fare worse.

Articles like that demonstrate a false sense of security. While the current ammo and firearm scarcity have been caused by consumer demand, laws banning imports of guns and ammo or blocking online sales could also lead to the same pressures on the market. Anti-2A legislation should be opposed before it becomes law and civil disobedience should be a last resort.

I hear you Greg. “Idle hands are the devil’s workshop; idle lips are his mouthpiece.” Despite the sheer mass amount of change which would be proposed, I ought not be complacent.
