And this is not anything exceptional. This is the nature of any government, something so hard to get Statists to recognize. The very best governments just want a little more power. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.
And all in the name of "protecting" you

The pansy grip the current administration has on the people can be slapped away once the parasites stop sucking on the public teat.

Here's the problem...

No one but the mightiest of conspiracy theorists believe the government is planning a coup in the next two weeks...or even two years...

But for a coup to actually happen and have the government declare martial law, act like a dictatorship, and rescind rights, MANY things have to happen...

And those things are happening incrementally...baby steps...

In the last four years, we've seen a president unilaterally give himself the power to kill Americans without due process, create a system that lurches 16% of the economy towards government control of the health system, give repeated attacks on the 2nd Amendment, cut off and lash out at the media when they venture 2% out of his way of thinking, picked and chose winners and losers in his embraced industries, threw out class warfare as a revolutionary call, and just recently, attacked American people that dare criticize big government...


The "coup" you speak of will NOT happen anytime soon...I'm 43 and it probably won't happen in my lifetime...

But the stage is being set...Little by little, the government is increasing it's control over people...and doing so at such a pace where most won't feel the effects immediately (The boiling frog)...

In the next 50 years, we'll have some presidents running this government as if a "coup" is the goal, and will continue Obama's way of thinking that big government is the cure all and decent of this thinking will not be tolerated...We'll also have presidents that will resist that, and will try to dismantle that way of thinking...

So WHEN it actually happens depends on elections 10, 20, or 40 years down the road...It might depend on whether any one of these presidents lurch too far in any one direction and receive the public's backlash...

But...as stated...It's being done little by little...Obama is not the end...he's the beginning...

The State can put someone in prison for having the wrong files on their computer.

Sometimes that's done for laudable reasons. But it can also be done to maintain control of the populace for nefarious reasons. I don't trust the State. No one should.
You sound a little worried. You might have to reboot

Nope, you need to open your eyes to the insatiable appetite for more Federal power that is President Obama. Our President needed something and someone to blame for his failed Middle East policy so he concocted a story about a video. The America citizen filmmaker still sits in jail , a political prisoner for exercising his first amendment rights.

I am glad that people like you aren't very widespread. This is about illegal weapons so people can't get one they can carry on a plane. You are losing it.

I remember back when Glocks first hit our shores and the stuff about it going through a metal detector and not registering on it. Well as far as I know the bullets for any gun are mostly metal and hence show up on metal detectors unless the can make ammo on a 3D printer now. At any rate a gun without bullets is best a club.

What illegal weapon? This gun complies with all the laws on the books today.

Really great point and one I hadn't thought of. Thanks.

Actually it is the first thing I tough remembering when Glock hit this country and they put metal barrels in theirs so it wasn't all plastic either. It didn't make a lot of sense then and don't know either to me.
