Found at III Percent Patriots

Verbatim from: The Silicon Greybeard

You Are Being Probed

Former blogger GardenSerf, who used to have a blog of the same name, spoke once about being a child in small town America somewhere that was chosen as a test market for the McDonald’s McRib sandwich.  He used the term “McRib test” to describe how large groups of people may be tested without the testing group actually committing to anything.  If too few people buy the McRib, maybe they never market the thing nationally, or they change a recipe and try again.  Similarly, in DC, they call it “floating a trial balloon“; a leak from an “unnamed source” so those in power can see the response of other lawmakers, the chattering pundits and the general public.

I’m convinced that at least some of the things we’re hearing about proposed gun control laws are McRib tests.  I’m not sure whom they’re watching or whom they’re testing, but I think we are being probed.  Look at just this collection pulled from Drudge:

WHITE HOUSE THREATENS ‘EXECUTIVE ORDERS’ ON GUNS…
‘The president is going to act’…
BANG BANG: CUOMO TO ANNOUNCE SWEEPING GUN LAWS…
Shouting governor expects rest of country to follow his lead…
‘No One Needs 10 Bullets To Kill A Deer’…
Clinton Turns Tech Speech Into Gun Rant…
Iowa lawmaker calls for confiscation…
CT lawmaker calls for background checks to buy ammo…
Gun sales soar in Atlanta…
‘Folks are grabbing just about any gun they can get hands on’…
Utah town to encourage arming households…
Ted Nugent unloads…
PANIC: One Million AR-15 Magazines on Backorder…

Within the last two weeks, another CT lawmaker was calling for confiscation.  Governor Cuomo called gun confiscation “an option” two weeks ago.  These calls are popping up all over.

If the goal of these “lawmakers” is to plunge the US into bloody civil war, that ought to work.  As I’ve said before, I’m not sure Obama is trying to destroy the US, I just don’t see what he’d be doing differently if he was.   Others can give more details on what’s likely to happen and how it might go down, but as someone I ran across put it: the last one took 620,000 Americans; I wonder how many this one will take?  Every report we can come across, anecdotal or sourced, says that since the Sandy Hook massacre, gun sales are at all time record levels.  As commenter perlhaqr said in response to my piece two Sundays ago, “Has it Started?”

“I don’t think all those people are buying all that stuff just to have one to turn in, pal.”

I think there’s a feeling in the air that everyone is sharing.  A feeling that something bad is coming.  Maybe they’re buying one in hopes of being grandfathered and maybe they’re expecting trouble.

I’ve seen numbers that say there are about 800,000 police/LEOs in this country, and call it 2,000,000 with all the military and others are added in.  You can figure that some percentage of them would refuse, even to the point of fighting the chain of command.  That leaves a tiny fraction of the number of gun owners.  Confiscation raids would be an ugly, bloody mess for everyone involved.

A good measure of this spirit will help us all.

I have lived my entire life on borrowed time and now in the twilight of my years, I have but one thing to say to those determined to take away or limit my right to own a firearm and to transform and destroy the greatest nation in the history of mankind.   I, and many like me, will not be intimidated and you will only accomplish your ultimate ends over our dead bodies.
