There are two ways for people who are not sheeple to resist a dictatorial government:
- Passively, via noncompliance; or
- Actively, via protests and armed insurrection.
Gun owners across America are choosing #1, passive resistance:
- In Connecticut, tens of thousands of gun owners have not complied with a new state law requiring all gun owners to register their firearms by January 1, 2014. The CT state legislature had passed that law by invoking the Sandy Hook school shooting.
- In Colorado, elected county sheriffs (55 out of 62) have signed on to a federal lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a package of gun-control laws requiring background checks for private gun transfers and outlawing magazines over 15 rounds. The state legislature had passed those anti-Second Amendment laws by invoking the alleged Sandy Hook massacre and the preceding Aurora theater shooting. Some sheriffs, like Weld County Sheriff John Cooke, are refusing to enforce the laws, saying that they are too vague and violate Second Amendment rights. Many more say that enforcement will be “a very low priority,” as several sheriffs put it.
- Even in “liberal” blue state California, gun owners in Sunnyvale, a city in Silicon Valley, are defying a new local law banning high-capacity magazines by refusing to turn in those magazines by the March 6 deadline. San Francisco had approved a similar ban last year, but SF police Sgt. Eric O’Neal said his department has no system to track whether any magazines have been turned in for destruction under the new ordinance. Both Sunnyvale and San Francisco enacted their gun control laws in reaction to the alleged Sandy Hook massacre.
Add the gun owners of New York to the above list of passive resisters.
Bob Owens reports for Bearing Arms, April 5, 2014, that New York state residents are required to register an estimated 1 million firearms designated as “assault weapons” under the NY SAFE Act by April 15.
But it appears there is overwhelming noncompliance.
NY State Police refuse to publicly share the number of firearms that have been registered (citing a provision of the NY SAFE Act itself), but leaks purporting to be from within the agency indicate that only 3,000 to 5,000 firearms have been registered, which suggests a noncompliance rate of a whopping 99.5%.
More encouraging still is the fact that the chief law enforcement officers in most counties have announced they will not enforce the SAFE law. NY State Assemblyman Bill Nojay (R-Pittsford) said, “The rank and file troopers don’t want anything to do with it. I don’t know of a single sheriff upstate who is going to enforce it.”
NY governor Andrew Cuomo had also invoked the Sandy Hook massacre when he pushed through the Orwellian-named SAFE Act.
Do you see a pattern in the red-colored sentences above?
Every state that passed gun control laws IN VIOLATION OF THE SECOND AMENDMENT TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION, had invoked the alleged massacre of 20 children and 6 adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Dec. 14, 2012. Mounting evidence and increasingly compelling reasons now point to Sandy Hook being what former state trooper Wolfgang Halbig calls “a contrived event.”
