    Angry Why gun owners have to be ever vigilant....

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    PastorMartinNiemöller:
    First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
    Definition:
    Censorship is suppression of speech or other communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient to the general body of people as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body.
    Definition:
    Political Censorship occurs when governments hold back information from their citizens. This is often done to exert control over the populace and prevent free expression that might foment rebellion. Another version of censorship is the phenomenon of disinformation which uses "red herrings" to distract people from some other controversial issue.
    Lord Acton's Dictum:
    Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.
    We see these abuses repeated over and over again in the world and we must unfailingly root them out, identify them for what they are, and fight them any way we can or we will surely lose our rights.

    +1!

    I especially think this quote is important:

    PastorMartinNiemöller:

    First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.


    It should make people remember that all of our rights are important whether you happen to like that particular right at that particular time or not.

    Why won't you die?

    beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr Creedy;
    And ideas are bullet proof!

    How about,

    They came first for the uncompromising, and I didn't speak-up for I was
    an eager compromiser.

    Then they came for the disruptors, not being a distuptor I said nothing.

    They came for the trolls, and I was not a troll, of course, and said
    nothing.

    When they came for the open carry advocate there were none. The members
    had won

    What exactly did they win?
    I don't mind watching the OC-Community (tea party 2.0's, who have hijacked the OC-Community) cannibalize itself. I do mind watching OC dragged through the gutter. OC is an exercise of A Right. I choose to not OC; I choose to not own firearms. I choose to leave the OC-Community to it's own self-inflicted injuries, and eventual implosion. Carry on...

    They came for the trolls, and I said nothing because they need to come for the trolls!

    I wouldn't elevate folks identified by their wanton behavior (trolls) with folks identified by their religious heritage (Jews), their political beliefs (communists), or their lawful associations (trade unionists).
