Years ago we had a problem in America with members of the Communist Party USA who were spying for the old Soviet Union during the Cold War era. Actually, we still have the same problem but I'm getting ahead of myself. The time was in the late 1960's and there were riots in many American cities. We had Communist backed organizations like the Weather Underground (founded by Barack Hussein Obama's old friends), Students for a Democratic Society, Malcolm X and the Black Panthers. In Washington there was also a push going on to register firearms. I joined the NRA in 1968 as a Life Member and the National Rifle Association was an active participant with the gun registration issue. While the NRA actively opposed gun registration they were in favor of background checks. There was a major concession made with the NRA's consent and we wound up with the BATF Form 4473, the Firearms Transaction Record issued by U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. This was the first time gun purchases were recorded by government order and later became part of the NICS background checks.
There is a famous line spoken in the 1984 film Red Dawn, a movie about a Russian invasion of America, when as soon as one contingent of the Russian troops had occupied the small town in the mid-west the Russian commander tells one of his officers, "Go to the local gun stores and pick up the 4473s" because they had the addresses of all the residents who had bought guns.
In the early 1970s the leadership of the NRA began to actively attack conservative groups such as The John Birch Society whose members were loyal patriots and also NRA members, for some unknown reason. And this leads up to the popular bumper sticker from that time that read:
Well, in the years since the Communist Party successfully infiltrated the Democratic Party and today there are over 70 Democrats in Congress who are members of the Democratic Socialists of America. This link leads to a whole treasure trove of information on this subject, far more than what could be quoted here. These same Socialists are always endorsing the same things as the Communist Party USA does, and one of their main objectives is to create a National Registration of Firearms a precept to gun confiscation. You cannot begin to plan to take over a country when the people own more guns than the Army so disarming the citizens always is the first move.
So in light of the political changes I propose an update to the old bumper sticker to now read:
If you need any proof why, then listen to this recording of three Democrats talking about confiscating guns.
Second Amendment rights advocates are fuming today over words from three Democratic state senators caught on tape after Thursday’s hearing on the upper chamber’s gun control package.
The three female senators, who sound from the recording to be Sen. Loretta Weinberg, Sen. Sandy Cunningham and Sen. Linda Greenstein, are heard discussing the just-closed hearing.
“We needed a bill that was going to confiscate, confiscate, confiscate,” said an unknown voice.
