Aggressive gun confiscation in California out of control

California gun confiscation

What began as an innocuous-sounding pilot program in California to get guns out of the hands of felons and the mentally infirm, is now turning into a state-wide gun-grab aimed at law-abiding citizens that peace officers are beginning to question.

We reported on the program in March. Under its Armed Prohibited Persons System, the state will confiscate firearms from legal gun owners if later convicted of a felony, found to have a mental health issue or becomes the subject of a domestic restraining order.

Although reasonable on its face, I expressed reservations at the time and even gave specific examples that could result in a person having their Second Amendment rights improperly infringed.

Since that time, the state, already awash in red ink, got its lawful gun owners to cough up an additional $24 million to expand the program with additional agents, and the results aren’t pretty.

It amounted to nothing less than “gun confiscation under the guise of safety” according to former DOJ Special Agent, Greg Cameron.

This first video, produced by the National Rifle Association, illustrates real cases in which innocent victims of the APPS program were treated like criminals.

The second NRA video is a followup to the first, and includes a more in-depth interview of a former DOA agent who was once a part of the program.

Recently, National Public Radio released a report that was complimentary of the APPS program called, “One By One, California Agents Track Down Illegally Owned Guns.” Infowars produced this final video, to counter the claims of the NPR piece, which describes the experience of one of its victims, Joe Mendez.

    “And how we burned in the camps later,
    thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he
    went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return
    alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass
    arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the
    entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror
    at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but
    had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the
    downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or
    whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a
    shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst,
    the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love
    freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation….
    We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

    They’re doing the same thing in New York State. The same response given ton NY, also goes for Communist California.

    The BIBLE, which even, so called, Bible believing Christians have FORSAKEN,………….states this about LAW.

    “LAWS are for the PUNISHMENT of EVIL DOERS”. That’s the ONLY REASON “for” law.

    The law is to be brought to bear on PEOPLE who have “worked ill” toward their neighbors.

    If a person has NOT done anything “ill-favored” to his neighbor, meaning those around him/her, then you CANNOT use the law AGAINST him/her.

    People being PRESCRIBED medicines, by their doctors, and then purchasing those pills, and injesting those pills or potions, are NOT committing any crime against their neighbor.

    It is possible ANYONE might do something crazy under the influence of some of their PRESCRIBED medicine, but until they do, NO ONE has the right to bring the law to bear on them PREMPTIVELY.

    Punishing a person in ADVANCE for a crime he/she most likely will never commit, is a total MIS-USE of the law, and any TAX-PAID government employee proposing such laws, which countermand the CITIZEN’S RIGHTS under the Constitution, is ACTIVELY engaged in the overthrow of the U.S. Constitution, and should be placed under arrest and put on trial for sedition, treason, or at the very minimum, PERJURY, for lying to the private sector about their oath of office.

    ANY SUCH LAWS, acting “preemptively” are merely UN-LAWFUL ORDERS, and are NOT required to be obeyed by public or private persons, and ANYONE trying to “enforce” such laws is working ILL toward his/her neighbor, and that is a CRIME, and the law is to be used against THEM.

    Couomo and his ILK are the CRIMINALS. They are TRAITORS to their State and the nation. Cuomo, and all of his STUPID “New York’s Finest” COPS should be FIRED, and CIVIL lawsuits brought against them INDIVIDUALLY for perjury.

    NONE of the First Ten Amendments (the Bill of Rights) to the U.S. Constitution have EVER been REPEALED, therefore, those laws are STILL the law of the land.

    WE CAN STOP IT ALL, AMERICA, and we need to ACT SOON, and here’s how we can legally do it all within 60 days.

    Picture this for a moment.

    I have a “comb” that has 74 teeth in it.

    Counting each tooth to represent 1.16 MILLION legal American Citizens, consider the following.

    Using the first two teeth, on the left, their sum total is 2.32 Million American Citizens who make up the entire population of America’s Active Military Forces, ALL police officers, and ALL top echelon Public Officials. (includes the POTUS, Congress, all Governors, State Representatives, Mayors, and Community officials)

    The remaining 72 teeth add up to a total of 83.5 MILLION, Constitutionally LEGAL, American Citizens, who “legally” own guns.

    We the People, are allowing 1/10 th. of 1 tooth, (the politicians) backed by 1- 9/10 teeth (all armed military and police), to THREATEN and BULLY, 72 teeth (American armed citizens) into surrendering their RIGHTS under the Constitution, and they are OPENLY, and ACTIVELY engaged in the OVERTHROW of the United States Constitution, TO OUR FACE!!!

    This PUNY force of arrogant, CITIZENS, actually believe they are the MAJORITY force and power, and are answerable to no one, especially the “private sector” CITIZENS and PATRIOTS that write their paychecks.

    Note this……….EVERY YEAR, the 83.5 MILLION citizens in the Private Sector, become the LARGEST armed military force in the WORLD.

    This happens on OPENING DAY of “hunting season” across America, when 83.5 MILLION HUNTERS step out of their houses, into the public, fully armed, with their guns loaded, and head into the fields and woods for a two week hunting period.

    There are NO REPORTS of mass shootings or homicides or an inordinate amount of “accidents” involving OUR GUNS during that two week period, EVER. We are Americans. We have been raised and trained how to use and handle guns SAFELY from our youth to old age. WE ARE TRUSTWORTHY to keep and bear arms, as our Founding Fathers knew.

    Are we going to let a MEASELY 1/10th of 1 tooth, (the politicians) to continue to dismantle the United States Constitution at EVERY LEVEL of government, when they have SWORN an Oath to “protect and defend” the very constitution they are actively engaged in destroying???

    OR…are WE THE PEOPLE going to strap on our LEGALLY owned guns, and armed with the BILL OF RIGHTS,( which have NEVER been repealed), MARCH down to our LOCAL government and City Counsel meetings, and DEMAND of our ELECTED officials, to STAND UP, one by one, and openly declare their own PERSONAL position on the American Citizens RIGHT to keep and bear arms, and to wear them in ALL PUBLIC VENUES, and to state, YES or NO, on whether or not ANY of the first 10 amendments to the constitution have been repealed.

    If the INDIVIDUAL answers in FULL SUPPORT of the Constitution, he/she retains their job.

    If the INDIVIDUAL answers AGAINST the Constitution and in favor of the continued Usurpation and Overthrow of our constitution through LAWS and ORDINANCES depriving the CITIZENS their constitutional RIGHTS, and ordering the local police forces to ENFORCE these laws, then that person is to be placed under CITIZENS ARREST for PERJURY, for LYING under their oath, stripped of his/her position of public office, and punished under the laws of perjury of the State, and an interim supporter of the Constitution is to be temporarily installed until new elections can be held to fill the seat.

    All Police officers are to be questioned in the same manner.

    We can STOP THIS MADNESS without having to fire a single SHOT, if WE THE PEOPLE, will simply put on our guns, and NEVER take them off again, and go to our town meetings, DEMANDING IMMEDIATE CHANGE, and the INSTANT REPEAL of all LOCAL laws contrary to the Constitution, and declaring such laws as UN-LAWFUL ORDERS only, and NO PERSON, public or private, is required to obey or follow an unlawful order.

    CLAIM YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT AGAIN, PATRIOTS and the State and Federal officials HAVE NO POWER to continue overthrowing us.

    THEN march on your State Capitals, demanding the same. KICKING OUT OF OFFICE, immediately, those who have perjured themselves. THEN we march on Washington D.C. and take back the Capitol.

    It’s a PIECE OF CAKE, patriots, and the PUNY 2 teeth are absolutely CRAZY if they decide they want to start shooting at us.

    Its time for WE THE PEOPLE to put a stop to all of this NONSENSE, and we can do it.

    NO LATER than Opening Day of hunting season, 2013, America………..and NEVER TAKE THEM OFF AGAIN.

    We can have our nation BACK TO IT’S ROOTS in less than 60 days, and ALL of OUR actions, are Constitutionally LEGAL .

    It’s once again time that the public officials, and police, FEAR the CITIZENS instead of the citizens fearing the politicians and police.

    An armed American citizenry is a FREE American citizenry.

    What say you……America??

    If I HAD to live in California, with its rules on guns and possibly ammo, I would buy a cross-bow for protection, at the very least! This could be helpful in home defense, and, SO FAR, the state isn’t requiring registration of the bolts (arrows) purchased! Granted, the crossbow hasn’t the range of a rifle, but in a home, MORE than sufficient, as well as safe! Arrows won’t penetrate interior walls to a significant degree!, and certainly not exterior! Another plus! There’s no push on to restrict or register cross-bows!

    1. Mike Miller says:

      Better hope you don;’t miss, or that there is only one aggressor.

      1. mogul264 says:

        One OTHER advantage is the Xbow is QUIET! The others, if any, won’t know he’s down, and you can reload!
        If you are at the end of a hallway, they can’t advance!

    One little cut at a time. Soon our rights will bleed out. Most of you have never known about the rights your grandparents had. Every year we see another piece of our heritage cut away. Just a little at a time. Soon they will all be gone.

    1. mogul264 says:

      I said nothing when they came for my neighbor, as they weren’t after ME……….!

    The Union of Soviet Socialist California, the People’s Republic of New York, Marxistchusetts and Communecticutt are the visible signs of an insidious assault on our Constitution and the very principles on which this nation was formed.

    CAN NOT WIN AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT IN CALIFORNIA. The judges are bribed and they have received immunity from prosecution for taking the bribes.

    SBX211 Section 5:
    This bill would provide that no governmental entity, or officer or
    employee of a governmental entity, shall incur any liability or be
    subject to prosecution or disciplinary action because of benefits(BRIBES) provided to a judge under the official action of a governmental entity prior to the effective date of this bill on the ground that those benefits(BRIBES) were not authorized under law.
