I have been writing this column for over a dozen years, and I can safely say the column I wrote last week, “My Line In The Sand Is Drawn Here,” produced more response than any column I have ever written--maybe more than any two or three columns combined. And what is even more noteworthy: unlike most columns, the responses to this column were at least 90% favorable.
In last week’s column I said, “Throughout the United States, there are tens of millions of fully-armed citizens who are more than capable of defending themselves and their communities against any enemy--whether that enemy is an internal or external one. In fact, many millions of these citizens have been trained in the US armed forces. Firearms--especially semi-automatic rifles--in the hands of millions of American citizens is truly the only thing that stands between freedom and tyranny for the people of the United States. That Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein want to disarm the American people should be considered an act of war against our liberties! In other words, ladies and gentlemen, this is a line in the sand that none of us can afford to ignore.”
I also wrote, “Make no mistake about it: to take away an American’s right to a semi-automatic rifle is to FULLY DISARM HIM. There is no Second Amendment; there is no right to keep and bear arms; there is no citizen militia; there is no liberty without the semi-automatic rifle!”
I concluded the column saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, whatever the consequences might be, and whatever anyone else does or doesn’t do, I am prepared to become an outlaw over this issue! I don’t know how to say it any plainer: I will not register my firearms, and I will not surrender my firearms. Period. End of story. It’s not just a saying with me: when my guns are outlawed, I will be an outlaw!
“My line in the sand is drawn here!
“Make no mistake about it: it is not just semi-automatic rifles that these gun grabbers are after. Ultimately, they want to take all of our guns. We either stop them now or there will be no stopping them at all.”
See the column: My Line In The Sand Is Drawn Here!
Among those who wrote to tell me that they had also drawn their personal line in the sand on this issue and that they would also absolutely refuse to register or surrender their firearms were people from virtually all walks of life: attorneys, realtors, bankers, teachers, physicians, civil servants, salesmen, truck drivers, tradesmen, pastors, law enforcement officers (including federal police officers), and military personnel--even special forces troops. Accordingly, I am absolutely convinced that these people are a microcosm of gun owners nationwide. I am also convinced that should Senator Dianne Feinstein’s bill banning semi-automatic rifles become law that there are literally tens of millions of Americans who simply will not comply.
Furthermore, former presidential candidate Pat Buchanan recently told John McLaughlin that should the federal government attempt to confiscate the guns of the American people, “There would be a revolution in this country!”
See the report: 'There would be a revolution in this country!', Mail Online
What most people fail to realize (because they are not taught it) is that the match that ignited America’s War for Independence was not excessive taxes, or the lack of representation, or trade restrictions, or the lack of trial by jury (as important as these issues were). The match that ignited America’s War for Independence was ATTEMPTED GUN CONFISCATION.
On April 19, 1775, British troops, some 800 strong, were dispatched to Concord, Massachusetts, to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock and to seize a cache of weapons known to be stored at Concord. When Dr. Joseph Warren sent Paul Revere to warn Pastor Jonas Clark (in whose home Adams and Hancock were staying) that the Crown’s troops were on their way to arrest the two men and seize the guns at Concord, he alerted his male congregants. About 60-70 men from the Church of Lexington stood armed on Lexington Green awaiting the Red Coats.
Upon spotting the citizen militia, a British officer demanded the men throw down their arms. They refused; and the British troops immediately opened fire. Eight of the Minutemen were instantly killed. The colonists returned fire in self-defense, and the shot was fired that was heard ’round the world. By the time the troops arrived at the Concord Bridge, just a few miles away, hundreds of colonists were waiting for them with muskets in hand, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Make no mistake about it: attempted gun confiscation ignited America’s War for Independence. And I am convinced that Pat Buchanan is absolutely right. If the federal government attempts to confiscate the guns of the American people, “There would be a revolution in this country!”
One more observation regarding The Battle of Lexington which opened America’s War for Independence: not only was attempted gun confiscation the match that ignited the war, it was the pastor of the Church of Lexington and members of his congregation who were the Minutemen of Lexington Green. That is another fact most historians conveniently leave out of the story.
If there is one element missing from today’s liberty fight, it is the lack of participation from America’s pastors. By and large they are MIA. How many pastors today are warning their congregations of the threat against their Second Amendment liberties? Every pastor in America, regardless of denomination, should have already started proclaiming “the spirit of resistance” (Thomas Jefferson) to their church congregations; they should already be extolling the Biblical mandate to resist tyranny; they should already be warning their congregations of Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein’s plan to disarm them.
Let me ask my church-going readers: has your pastor said one word from the pulpit regarding the impending gun ban now being drafted? Has your pastor explained the Biblical principles of lawful resistance? Has your pastor exhorted his church congregation to not surrender their firearms and to do everything in their power to demand that your senators and legislators hold the line for the Second Amendment? And my next question is if your pastor has not done any of this, why are you still attending that church?
Ladies and gentlemen, there would have been no United States of America had it not been for Rev. Jonas Clark and the other patriot-pastors of 1775 and 1776. There would have been no Lexington Green and Concord Bridge; there would have been no Bunker Hill; there would have been no Declaration of Independence; there would have been no British surrender at Yorktown. And I would dare say that if a significant percentage of pastors would stand up this Sunday and encourage their people to stand firm against this gun ban bill, the bill would never see the light of day.
The time is late, folks! We no longer have the luxury of straddling the fence or putting our heads in the sand. If your pastor refuses to take a public stand for YOUR liberties, and the liberties of YOUR CHILDREN, vote with your feet and walk out the door. Find yourself a pastor who will defend your liberties and the liberties of your children--liberties that other pastors and patriots purchased at the cost of their very blood.
I repeat what I’ve already said, “Whatever the consequences might be, and whatever anyone else does or doesn’t do, I am prepared to become an outlaw over this issue! I don’t know how to say it any plainer: I will not register my firearms, and I will not surrender my firearms. Period. End of story. It’s not just a saying with me: when my guns are outlawed, I will be an outlaw!
“My line in the sand is drawn here!”
And so are the lines of millions of Americans.
In response to Pat Buchanan’s prediction of revolution should the federal government attempt to confiscate our guns, John McLaughlin replied, “Baloney!”
I’m sure that’s what King George III said when he was told that would happen if his troops attempted to confiscate the guns at Concord.

Janice and Conrad,
I'm thinking maybe God isn't on the side of global wars fought for the wrong reasons.
I suppose in a way it's a good thing the gun ban issue has finally become mainstream. I say this because for years we've asked the question, what will it take to wake people up? What is the line in the sand? It seems for many we've found it at last!
For that we can be thankful. It's been frustrating to watch as no one said much as our rights have been stomped, our Constitution shredded, our economy destroyed by manipulation and design. These progressive steps toward destroying our citizens, our country, our sovereignty went mostly ignored.
It's been like living in the matrix as history was erased from not only the books, but our memories, and re-written to fit the new twisted reality being created for the brainwashed masses. All part of the quiet conquering and takeover of our once great country. And those who were not sufficiently brainwashed have been labeled "crazy" or simply ignored, even defined as terrorists for not supporting this new definition of "patriotism" written for us.
At times I wondered how I missed the blue pill of oblivion. Is it because I avoid vaccinations? Because I don't drink fluorinated, medicated city water? Simply brain wiring? I don't know. But I am so happy to see that something ... this gun control on steroids ... has jolted the masses from their trance at last.
Perhaps they will now start connecting the other dots as well. Perhaps they will check into what else our government has been up to while they slumbered. Then they would better understand why each amendment of our Constitution is equally important. But I'm just being hopeful now :)
@ Tim... I agree with you about the part of "praying and passing the ammunition". The prayer needs to be on "God's perfect will to be done on the situation at hand." Its never a good idea to tell God to bless what your plan is, since its usually not the greatest plan that there could be.
When you ask God to implement His perfect plan in the situation....now thats a PLAN!!! Angela is on the right track, she just needed to turn a few degrees and she would be spot on.
I don't know how you tell the right reason for a war. We won WWII, tied in Korea, lost Viet Nam. didn't get much out of Iraq and probably lost in Afganastan.
@ramona.... God didn't start the wars, yes! But that doesn't mean He doesn't get involved. In the Bible He says, " Anyone who comes against you, ( Israel) I will curse and anyone who blesses you, I will bless), You only have to look at the history of Israel in the O,T. to know this. In our time ( 1948 and 1967) Israel miraculously won those battles.

In our time ( 1948 and 1967) Israel miraculously won those battles. No one disputes that because they won against all odds, You just need to read the accounts on those battles ( even those accounts of the enemy) to come to that conclusion.
Even Jesus uses absolute terms when He says in two scriptures: " If you are not for Me, then you are against Me:".... (and) " Take for yourself a sword, if you have not one, then sell your coat and buy for yourself, one."
God does not start the battles, but He fights and wins them. He gets involved. " Nothing is impossible with God who love Him and are called for His purposes."
Angela, When I watch what has been taking place over the years, I can only think about the fall of the Roman Empire. We have no one but ourselves to blame. We have made DC fat and huge and hungry for more and more power. We've allowed the beast to grow hungry fo rmore and more control. We ahve grown lazy and content and stopped voting. We, the citizens have failed. Thoreau wrote that less govenrment is better, but we selected to have more and more government.

The beast will not give up the control willingly, at least not according to Hobbes who said in the Leviathan that once the poulation willingly gives up its right to govern itself to a selected body, the power of that body can only be destroyed by force- providing the elected body has overstepped its bounds and rights. Either way , we're up the creek. Still, someone else said the bigger they are the harder they fall.
If America abandons Israel, our nation is doomed! Israelites are still God's chosen people. Why are so many of our Jewish population in America embracing liberalism? I don't get it. SMH Thruout history, most wars have been all about religion. Supposedly we have freedom of religion in America, yet why do so many want to JAM their particular religion down others' throats? Live & let live!
@ Pam.... You got that right... It is written: ( God says) " Who comes against you ( Israel) I will come against. Who curses you, I will Curse, who blesses you I will bless."
You are right.... given this prez. who hates Israel... We are doomed. Funny how he sends some lame "dome shields' to Israel during the Hamas attacks from Gaza recently, wow, he is gung ho to help the French right now....even talking "boots on the ground". What a transparent hypocrite.... I can see right through to his hypocrisy,
Tina you are right, we are in the place we are because people do not get "into" politics. Yep right there is the problem, get involved and get these idiots out of office, but how do we do that when people do nothing to change the way things are going? I do think a lot more people are now starting to wake up. But is it to late? I do not see ovomit giving up easily, he will try to become our hitler for america. So yes, it is time for WE THE PEOPLE to take our COUNTRY back...

If i may interject an "opinion" that i am sure will be shot down and justified by some. Lets start with GOD. Now me personally believe in God. I was saved and baptized in water. Do i lead a life that pleases my creator? Probably not. Yet i still do believe..Have heard lots of chatter about how God has turned his back on America and the such. Someone brought up Ephesians 6 - 12, which btw is my favorite of biblical scripture.

Someone brought up Ephesians 6 - 12, which btw is my favorite of biblical scripture. And without a doubt we are dealing with principalities & powers. I do not believe God supports Americas aggression in these wars today by any means. Call it a war on terror or what have you. There is no war on terror but a war on humanity. Now to you folks standing strong in your faith i respect that but please let me point out. Satan is powerful and uses many tricks to draw people in to support his cause. So in effect unless you have not paid any taxes in quite sometime and have 100% dropped off grid (which you have not because you are on the internet) You have supported the will of Satan..Period..There is no justifying argument needed..
OK all this talk of the mentally ill. So who defines mentally ill? How many right here on this thread can honestly say you have never been prescribed an anti depressant,(Prozac, Zoloft, wellbutrian, effexor etc.) or a binzodiapine for all the stress you deal with?(valum, Xanax, Serex, colonapine, etc.) Or how about a sleep aide just so you get a good nights rest?(Ambien,
Sonata,Lunesta etc.) Most of any of these drugs can be prescribed as a sleep aide and often are on top of one of the others..So please everyone answer that question honestly. My point is, WHO DEFINES MENTALLY ILL??? These are the tricks of the devil as well...
I am one of those who will not on any circumstances voluntarily surrender my firearms. NO WAY NO HOW... "I would rather die on my feet then live on my knees"... That being said i also 100% understand Conrads statements about "kill rate" and it is true. We will be fighting Satan and every piece of modern war fare technology or weapon created to end human life ever faced on a battlefield..And it goes bigger then just guns, missiles, or bombs. Good point about cell towers Conrad, one would be advised to smash the smart meter on your home and live under darkness too. (this we all need to do anyway ASAP). There is absolutely zero good on the human body that comes from being exposed to ELF, UHF, HF or any type of micro wave especially on the grandiose scale that we already are every single day, and by consent i might ad... That weapon concerns me more then any other weapon. AND IT IS A WEAPON... Paid for by us (we the ppl) and used against (us) humanity world wide meanwhile the research and evidence continues to flow in on how many deaths are directly related to an effect caused by this exposure... I mean wouldn't you think someone was mentally ill if they walked into a hospital, signed a full release of liability and asked for a fatal heart attack, or terminal liver cancer??? Well folks YOU ARE..( I suggest you do you research on this topic b4 you argue this point with me. Just Saying).. Informed consent is another trickery of Satan...Conrad you are right in saying we will need the military on our side because someone has to operate those weapons you spoke of. I guess that would be a great prayer offering tonight, that a majority if not all of military and police will put the uniform aside for a minute and be an American citizen again... Other wise Conrad yes it will be a quick decisive culling of innocent people, weather you are involved in the conflict or not...So let's all say that prayer b4 we lay our heads down tonight...Thanks for letting me say my piece, i been away from FC for a while but I R BACK...Hey Ramona..xo...
You make some good points. Germany knows about the cancer deaths caused by electronic radiation. There they have a switch to turn off all electricity to the bedroom so you aren't exposed to radiation when you sleep.
We have to operate smart. Obama would probably love for a few hundred people to run around with guns and start shooting up the country. Then he’d have no problem outlawing all guns like in the UK. It happened in AU in the 1990’s after a string of mass killings…..I’m talking 50, 60 people in one killing spree.
There is good reason there hasn’t been a successful civilian revolt in a first world country since the French Revolution in 1792. That is the kill ratio of the weapons. The revolution of 1848 was put down by the military. The Spanish Civil war of the 1930’s was between opposing military factions. That’s why I think the only thing that would work is a military coup. One key would be getting access codes to nuclear weapons otherwise we’d end up like Syria with massive civil war going on for years defined by blue and red state boundaries. However, if one used them you’d probably lose support of the general populace. Destroying Washington and New York with a nuke would cause the average person to dislike the rebels.
In terms of mental illness: it’s defined in the DSM IV (see your local library) and psychiatrists are the ones who make the call.
They make the call now..But psychiatrists are not our law makers..So guess i will being seeing you at the Library. Have you seen how they define the word "terrorist"? Our law makers wont take the advice of a medical professional unless is curves toward their parties cause..Now the CEO of a major corporation with a fluffy check book will get his vote every time...

Drudge report showed yesterday Hitler, Stalin, Mao all posing with children just before they took the guns or while pushing another piece of propaganda on the ppl...Well Obama is definitely associating himself with some of the more "successful" tyrants in history. Mao killed roughly 49-78,000,000, Hitler, 12,000,000, Stalin another 6 mill... This is just what history has taught me about what happens when you give up your ways and means of defending your self.
@rusty... that part about taxes and that those who paid or paying it is a work of Satan? Well, golly, Sargent.... Jesus made a mistake then. One of his disciples came over and informed Jesus that they didn't have enough money to pay the taxes and Jesus pointed him to go an catch this here fish where if'n he opened the fishes mouth he would have a gold coin, enough to pay the tax.

Oh, and the other time the low life Pharisees ( wanting to trick Jesus) showed Jesus a coin that had Cesar's picture one it. (Ya see the Jews had this law against graven images) and they said, " Rabbi, what do we do with this coin? Jesus said, " Give to Cesar ( taxes) what is Cesar's and to God what is God's"
Hope I cleared up them muddy water for ya. Jesus wasn't agin paying taxes but taxes owning you.
So now, give to God what is God...... Let dem knees a yorn hit the dirt and pray for God's mercy for a heathen nation. If'n you hadn't noticed... we been under judgement since the git go.
All these here storms and tornados and floods an not to mention terrorist attacks. This here ppl. let the unrighteousness continue without so much as a peep from the pulpit in the last 50 years. So now we got us ...Abortion ( murder) and two guys and two gals wanting to play house legally. God is still with us... He's just pissed off right now.
God is love, that is true, but He is also a judge. He don't care if'n you 2nd degree black belt in Christianity... ( God is no respecter of people) You don't speak up for righteousness, and stick yorn head in the sand and let evil take a hold.... He's gonna take a switch to your glutemus maximus ( behind) till your cerebral cortex ( brain) gets the message.
No psychiatrists aren't law makers. There is no law on who's crazy or who has what kind of cancer. All that stuff is decided by medical people through committees of experts, medical schools and universities. Congress has no clue on the details of diseases mental or physical. The insurance companies have all this organized. Each disease has a billing code. A doctor gets paid based on the number. There are over 10,000 different numbers.
Hanging out with kids is something politicians have always done. Mitt kissed a lot of babies during the last elections. Personally I’d never give a kid to a politician. After they shake so many hands they probably carry a lot of germs.
@Carter... we never would have to worry about germs if Howie Mandel was a politician, he has a phobia about shaking hands or any touching.
So no one going to own up to being prescribed any of these type of drugs huh? Because based on the history of this govt.
So no one going to own up to being prescribed any of these type of drugs huh? Because based on the history of this govt. i would say that will be one of the factors on who THEY deem mentally ill and should own firearms..Mark my words...At the end of the day, at the top of big Pharma is the same ppl at the top of the banks who are the same people at the top of the oil industry who are the same people atop the wireless community who happen to be the same at the top of your power companies...
BTW Janice thanks for the biblical lesson. I take it you are a christian? Lots of people have died at the hand of the cross. But i am sure you will whip out a scripture that condones those murders. Remember you are reading from scripture that has been translated time and time again by man..J/S..that being said, God bless us all.
@ Chains.... Lot of Christians dying these days by the hand of terrorists because they believe the Jesus who hung on the cross. I'm sure you gonna pull out.....opps! my apologies,,,, You have nothing to fall back on... well, too bad... If I believe the way you do and there is no God, then I lose nothing..but there is a God, so you lose.. For me its a win win. Uhhh for you not so.
I wonder what scriptures the Quran has that condones all their murders... oh yeah... Look up Serah 12... " kill all infidels, Christians, and Jews.... I'm sorry, I searched the Holy bible and couldn't find " Murder everyone who isn't Christian." Sorry to burst your bubble. Oh yeah, I'm saved, not perfect. I'm being perfected.
Oh, and the translations? Sorry again to burst your bubble.
Those same scriptures can be found in the scrolls found at Qumran by the dead sea... not a thing has been changed in over 2,000 years. The words in the scrolls are the same as written in the Bible.
You see.... archeology began as a science to disprove the Bible, now they use the Bible to find the cultures named in it and the places and names that are named in it. Its now become a map for them.
Only ppl. who are ignorant or ( hate God) the facts spout venom .... you neither KNOW Jesus or follow Him... so you don't speak with authority concerning Jesus or what He did or stands for.
Then all you have is yourself. BTW... It is written: "only a fool says in his heart.... there is no God.".....
I'd like to say, " I'll see you in the heaven," But St. Peter can't find your name, right now. For your sake I hope one day Peter will find it there. Then you will know what it's all about, but for now, you are one harp shy of a halo. oh and about
" God Bless us all?"( quoted by you)
I say.... I am blessed by God... its you who need the blessings.
btw..... I can never figure why, those who don't believe there's a God fight so hard against someone they don't believe exists? Now that is insanity.!!!!
No one who knows Christ Jesus talks the way you do about Him. Jesus never said, by their baptism you know their Christian. Anyone who loves me, does the will of My Father.
Baptism doesn't make you a Christian. You can sit in a car and call yourself a car.... it don't make you one.
You miss the whole miraculous meaning and experience of a God who loves you. I pray you will one day come to the end of yourself, look up and call on Him to show Himself to you. He will, He never ever goes back on His word... " Jeremiah 33:3..." Call on ME and I will answer and show you great and mighty things, you know nothing of."
You call on Him and mean it with all your heart.... you will see!
when did i say i dont believe in God? If you read you see i have been saved. My point about the translations is there are many different translations, not all of them carry the same message...Easy on the passing judgment please..I kind of thought this was a political web site anyway
@rusty..... You can't separate you're life. Politics, Job, Religion, etc. That's what some Christians do... They are Sunday saints and Monday 'aint's'.
There are many 'transliterations'. Not all of them use the Septuagint Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic to do the 'transliterations'. It is written: "Study and show thyself approved unto 'GOD'; a workman, not ASHAMED, RIGHTLY dividing the Word of God."
'Judgement'? Isn't that a democrat tactic when they evade the issue or anything else they don't agree with? (ie....racism,richman/poorman, class warfare).
This website is called "FREEDOM WORKS". Freedom is a GOD given right. It is certainly part of politics. That is my point. You cannot separate it from the rest of your life. America has done, just that since liberalism reared it's ugly head.
The foundation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights has a Biblical foundation. If our POLITICS is not woven in that foundation, then you are just running in place and going nowhere, fast!
The content of one's life lived out, tells a lot about them, even if they call themselves by a belief system, doesn't mean they practice it. You can sit in a garage and call yourself a car, that doesn't mean you become one.
Jesus said, " It is by their fruit ( what they bring forth from what they believe), you shall know they are mine." ( not by what they call themselves).
In our Nation right now, we are told that 'truth' has gray areas, yet Jesus taught that "if you are not for me, then you are against me." There are no gray areas in Truth. Truth is not subject to what one says it is, unless you are the Truth. Jesus said, "I am the Way the TRUTH and the LIFE,...
Truth is not a concept, it is a person and His name is Jesus. Either you believe this or are offended by it, or by anything pertaining to God. That is where our country is right now. It says 'good' is 'bad' and 'bad' is 'good'. Politically correct is the term they use.
Our founding fathers put God first in everything they did concerning our country. Not so today. In fact, if you just happened to have watched the Democrat convention where they were up in arms about the mere mention of 'God'.
So, is God part of politics? Not for very long, I'm afraid. Even the conservative has bought the lie of separation of 'church and state'... which is nowhere to be found in the Constitution. Separation of church and state are found in a letter written by T. Jefferson to a Baptist minister in regards to the divisions among Christian denominations and that the government would not take sides and put one above the other. That is the documented history of that term.
How many of us 'conservatives' know that? Very little. I suggest all the time for my fellow freedom fighters to go to "Wallbuilders' online and look up the rich history of our country and educate themselves so they can be equipped to fight the good fight.
You cannot find an instant where God is not involved in your 'whole' life, even your politics.
Hope that helps.
Sadly it's hard to tell what the Tea Party is anymore... a poliical group, a Bible study group, a socal club? In 2009 we knew what we were and won the 2010 election. Today??? and look what happened in 2012.
tragically its easy to see how our country got in the socialist mess it is in. There were not enough 'meat of the Word' Bible study groups in America. Too bad the 'Christians' in name only became a 'pot luck' social club. The proof is what happened in the elections from 2008-2012.
Oh well, now it becomes a historical fact. Now that's really SAD!
But the good news is, God is still on the throne, despite the apathy in the ranks and the blind leading the blind among the pretense of 'sounding patriotic' but not really having any substance.
Actually the Tea Party won in 2010. That's when they had people united around some simple fiscal ideas. Now it's a real mess and we are rapidly going down hill.
carter.... Yes, we are going down (rapido) hill. When I wrote those dates, I guess what I meant was..... we still have Oblamer. :-D
Your support keeps freedom alive!
