USAammo.com, a gun supply, ammunition, and supplies store who mainly targets sales online has created quite a stir with a controversial ad campaign. The campaign compares president Obama in the same context as Hitler, Stalin, Chairman Mao, and others who implemented gun control and killed millions through the government repression that allowed for mass genocide and tyrannical government controls.
The ad states that governments render their citizens defenseless through gun control. “Liberty is perpetuated by armed citizens. An armed citizen can defend himself against threat and foe.” the video explains. “The defenseless are subject to enslavement, imprisonment, and annihilation. ”
Apparently, the idea was conceived and emailed out early this week to coincide with Cyber Black Monday. And it has created a stir nationally in the political field.
Trace Williams, director of operations for USAAmmo, said that “Obama and his various czars are infringing on the rights of Americans to own guns.”
“He’s anti-gun and he’s obviously a socialist cramming health care down American’s throats,” Williams said. “That is exactly how those people in that ad rose to power.”
To help bring forth why guns are necessary in the fabric of a free country the video quotes the most famous American president, George Washington.
“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference – they (the guns) deserve a place of honor with all that is good.” – George Washington
They didn’t just stop there. “A free people should not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.” quoting again George Washington, which is however not exactly what he said on his first Annual Congress on Friday, January 8, 1790 as follows:
“Among the many interesting objects, which will engage your attention, that of providing for the common defence will merit particular regard. To be prepared for War is one of the most effectual means of perserving peace.
A free people ought not only to be armed but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well digested plan is requisite: And their safety and interest require, that they should promote such manufactories, as tend to render them independent on others for essential, particularly for military supplies.”
Apparently people are concerned about the President’s agenda for more gun control.
The increase in gun sales nationwide is a good indicator of the national unease on where we are heading.
