Once the citizens of a nation lose the ability to effectively defend themselves, dictatorship inevitably follows. History has proven this universal truth again and again.
So, in the country formerly known as Great Britain guns have been virtually outlawed since 1997. Abuses follow:
Britain bans the free press
Cops in Britain force their way into private hoes to enforce debts
Govt employee Doctors in Britain on house calls inspect homes for compliance with safety and health laws
British right to jury trial is gone
Ignoring the fact of increasing crime, we should note that the people there are now defenseless against any thing or act the Government decides to do. I have talked about this in the past, and had several British citizens argue that I am wrong.
Let’s see what they say about this:
The UK’s tax collection agency is putting forth a proposal that all employers send employee paychecks to the government, after which the government would deduct what it deems as the appropriate tax and pay the employees by bank transfer.
Once you cannot defend yourself from theft, you leave yourself at the thief’s mercy. It doesn’t matter if that thief is the man robbing you at the ATM, your neighbors robbing you at the polling booth, or a cop with a badge robbing you with regulations. Theft is theft. This is why we have a Second Amendment.
