Gun confiscation raised by rising star Democrat
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo publicly declared the death of the US Constitution yesterday, December 20, 2012. Cuomo, in few short sentences, has begun laying the essential groundwork for the possible mass deportation of undesirable civilians to government "work" camps, re-education camps, and even death camps. After all, only disarmed Americans can be herded and shipped off in cattle cars to their uncertain fate.
Cuomo statements are a more than warning shot across the bow of American liberty. They signal that the Democrats and the MSM have jettisoned any remaining loyalty to Constitutional freedoms and individual rights.
From the New York Times, we read:
"I don't think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, 'I need an assault weapon to go hunting,' " he said. At the same time, he noted that he owns a shotgun that he has used for hunting, and said, "There is a balance here - I understand the rights of gun owners; I understand the rights of hunters."
In the interview, Mr. Cuomo did not offer specifics about the measures he might propose, but, while discussing assault weapons, he said: "Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option - keep your gun but permit it."
Yes, the "C-word" is now a legitimate reference point for gun control advocates, along with mandatory sales to the state.
Confiscation of private property is specificlly forbidden under the fifth amendment to the consitiution, but the Andrew Cuomo's and the Barack Obama's of this country don't give a damn about the Constitution!
If a government can demand the mandatory sale of your property to the state, what do you really own?
"Say, nice car you got there, but all 2009 cars now emit too much CO2. Your going to have to sell us your car for what we think it's worth. Have a nice day."
I'll be writing more about this shocking desire to destroy our Constitutional rights, and more importantly the equally shocking silence from the MSM and Constitutional libertarians from all sides of the political spectrum.
