In July 2014, the city of New Orleans agreed to settle a lawsuit filed by the NRA and Second Amendment Foundation after the city’s Police Superintendent, P.Edwin Compass, ordered an illegal and unconstitutional gun confiscation after Hurricane Katrina. You can read more about the lawsuit here.
In a press conference, Compass, said, “No one will be able to be armed. We will take all weapons. Only law enforcement will be allowed to have guns.” The NRA produced an eye-opening short documentary on the gun grab: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-taU9d26wT4] It is not the only time in modern history where government ordered a wide-scale gun confiscation. In 1941, President Franklin Roosevelt declared that all Japanese “aliens” living in the United States were to be unarmed.
Now, some have a warranted fear of a future nationwide gun confiscation. In fact, it may be already starting. In July, 2015, the Shooter’s Log reported about a new gun control measure handed down by the Obama Administration which would add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the “unauthorized to own a firearm” list by enacting a rule in which people who’s Social Security disability checks are handled by other person means they aren’t able to own firearms. You can read more about that here.
Certainly, we know that President Obama would love a country without guns. He has said numerous times how his personal biggest frustration and disappointment during his reign has been that he failed to do anything about “gun violence.” In June 2014, in a conversation with Tumblr founder, David Karp, Obama let his true feelings to light:
“A couple of decades ago Australia had a mass shooting similar to Columbine or Newtown, and Australia just said, ‘Well, that’s it. We’re not doing—we’re not seeing that again,’ and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since. I mean, our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no other advanced, developed country on earth that would put up with this.”
Imagine this future. Do you think it would be possible in America? What would a nationwide gun confiscation look like? Tell us your thoughts and theories in the comment section.
