I’ve seen all KINDS of proposals, including threatening to make all gun owners get “psych evals,” banning standard-capacity magazines, banning popular semi-auto rifles (or making us register them, which is basically the same thing)…
…And all of these are in bills that are somewhere in Congress, even if they haven’t made it to the “final stages” to become laws yet.
But there’s an even bigger threat that is ALREADY in place, one that may already be targeting YOU specifically, and you don’t even know about it.
Because our government is ALREADY using a “secret watch list” to track gun owners!
“The U.S. government maintains a massive watchlist system that risks stigmatizing hundreds of thousands of people—including U.S. citizens—as terrorism suspects based on vague, overbroad, and often secret standards and evidence.”
What’s even more worrying, to me, is the “secret and nebulous criteria” used to classify people like YOU AND ME as terrorists, people who can’t buy guns, can’t fly on planes, and are presumed guilty until proven innocent in the eyes of the government!
(“Nebulous” means it’s so vague that they can do it to ANYBODY they want, at any time.)
They’re going to lump YOU in with the nuts who stormed the Capitol screaming about how “next time” they’ll need “more rifles.”
(Dressing like a deranged Viking bison is optional, I guess.)
“But Jeff,” you might be thinking, “There’s no way I could be classified as a domestic terrorist.”
Don’t think so?
Think again, amigo, because our government’s own official documents (such as those used by the FBI and Homeland Security) declare as potential “domestic terrorists” any U.S. citizens who…
- Believe strongly in the 2nd Amendment
- Are concerned with the direction of govt.
- Buy guns and ammunition
- Store survival food and other supplies
- Are Christian… military… or “conservative”
And that only scratches the surface of who they are looking at as a potential “enemy of the state” – especially now that EVERYONE who doesn’t agree with the government is being smeared with the label of “insurrectionist.”
You May Think You Aren’t On A List, But…
You still may not think you’re on any kind of a list, but honestly, you probably wouldn’t know it if you were.
Quite a while back now, I found an online tool that lets you check yourself or a family member to see just how many “red flags” you’ve tripped.
(The page links to a “news article” that is really just an ad for this Truth Finder tool, which is cheesy as heck, but it just means you have to click a second link.)
What I found out was, I wasn’t on the watch list yet… but my ex-wife was!
But what I have to ask myself now is… disturbing as it was to see someone I knew on the list… have I been added to it since?
With the government furiously cracking down on any “insurrectionists” it thinks might be “disloyal,” more and more people are going to start being added to that list, and that might include you.
And some of the new laws being proposed in Congress now, like the enhanced “background checks,” are just a backdoor way to put you and every other gun owner on that watch list…
…Which means a whole lotta trouble for even the most responsible gun owner.
