Nothing raises the hackles of dictators, tyrants, and oligarchs more than the idea of a substantially armed citizenry. Disarming present or potential opposition has been the fundamental game plan of murderous rulers since Ancient Egypt and Rome.
From the more complex mass murderers like Adolf Hitler, and Mao, to tin pot lunatics like Idi Amin, the key to seizing power, and then maintaining it, has always been a disarmed opposition.
It doesn’t take a degree in international affairs to realize that America is hated, and, more specifically envied, by most of the rest of the world. We are mocked as cowboys and Rambos. The late, great Jeff Cooper, the guru of modern firearms technique, coined the word “hoplophobe” to describe this kind of gun hater.
The hoplophobe, according to Cooper, envies the man who can cope where he cannot. A skilled, armed man lives on a plane of security and contentment different from that of others. This is not egalitarian! The man who cannot cut it, envies, fears and sometimes hates the man who can. This is all very clear; it is just a pity that so many people choose to hide their perfidious motivation behind what they claim to be crime control.”
George Bush, no friend of gun rights himself, but when push came to shove, said “they hate our freedom.” He was referring to Islamic fanatics, but the fact is that most of the world’s elite, including the Western World, truly do hate us for our freedom to keep and bear arms. It is a hatred inflamed by envy, and there is perhaps no worse kind.
The armed American citizenry sticks in the craw of the globalist oligarchs who would, in an instant, bring their “New World Order” to bear upon our most treasured liberties. In order to do that they must destroy our 2nd Amendment and following that, the Bill of Rights. These must be crushed lifeless and utterly erased from human consciousness before the global elite can have their way.
Guns are the great equalizer. The Founders knew this when they enshrined the Second Amendment in our Constitution.
As Noah Webster wrote: “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States.”
