I got this second-hand in an email. I don't know the original source, but was told it's okay if I pass it on.
For several years now I have seen something creeping into our American society on quiet little cat paws, and it worries me: the creeping gradualism of a false sense of security. What with the general population living in a state of virtual total complacency through the generation of unfounded fears of mass, beyond-the-norm terrorism, and therefore placing their faith into the rhetoric of the government, a police state society is being created in front of their blind eyes. Moreover, those who do see this trend and/or believe in, follow, quote, or support the Constitution of the United States are being singled out as trouble-makers and rabble-rousers, perhaps even terrorists.
One example of these sly governmental manipulations, and what gets my goat, is the obvious hypocrisy of the elected. Rich and powerful people have their own armed bodyguards, top government officials' children are protected by armed guards even while attending secure, private schools, Dianne Feinstein has a California concealed carry permit, Biden extols shotguns, etc. They want to be able to have weapons available to themselves, but not the average citizen. The schools of the average citizen do not have armed guards and are, in fact, declared weapon-free much to the delight of thugs and crazies. And "they" have spread the belief among the masses that the population should be controlled by a fatherly and omniscient government, a government who wisely disarms the vast majority of citizens in the name of safety.
However those who believe in the Constitution, who believe in the Bill of Rights, personal liberty, and patriotism, are beginning to see that the government is becoming destructive and has already, perhaps, become devoid of all morality — and is thus inherently evil.
And I am afraid those two views, that of placid acceptance, and that of subjugation and moral decrepitude, will result in mass violence as an out-of-control federal government attempts to nullify the Bill of Rights and Constitution to seize oligarchial power.
The scenario I see is in the near future there will be some kind of engineered bombing or attack on a building, church, or school where weapons will be used — perhaps even some form of engineered mass infection traced back to some group. And, of course, liberal government-controlled media will then unleash vicious attacks on Constitutionalists and gun owners, branding them as terrorists, or at least enabling terrorism.
If someone disagrees with or opposes the government, psychiatric workups will deem them having mental disorders and place them under court-ordered medication or into institutions for the insane. Ultimately, those who cite their Constitutional rights will be "vanished" in the name of terrorism ala the Patriot Act, their lives relegated to Guantanamo or gulag-type imprisonment.
This, of course, will lead to even more violence as armed citizens begin fighting back against an out-of-control federal government that attempts to seize power and nullify the entire U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights. Active, forceful disarming of the population will begin, unstopped and welcomed by those who believe in government-as-Alfader.
Ultimately, no long-term gun owner will be grandfathered-in; storage of ammunition, firearms and accessories, perhaps even knives and swords and food supplies will be outlawed. Treasonous acts will include "preparedness" of all kinds, and possession of survival gear, bows and arrows, crossbows, even slingshots by private citizens will be criminalized.
But those in high places as well as their troopers will be exempt ...
