Gun Confiscation Coming?

Comrades! Turn in your Weapons!

Comrades! Turn in your Weapons! (Photo credit: Templar1307)

Each day, I read the headlines in the mainstream news, I follow my email, and read as many articles as I have time. I’ve done so for several years, primarily as a prerequisite for hosting daily radio shows. Over those several years, I’ve developed an intuitive awareness of the “velocity” of news.  That is, on average, there’s been about the same number of stories, the same “quantity” of news each week for several years.

But starting this last January, I’ve had the distinct impression that the “velocity of news” had accelerated by, say, at least 30%.  I have no evidence to support that impression.  It’s just a subjective feeling.  But that feeling has been so persistent that I’m inclined to believe it’s real.

Based on that increasing “velocity of news,” I’ve come to suspect that “something big” is now very close–maybe just weeks or a couple of months away.  Again, I have no evidence other than “gut”.  I could easily be wrong.

We recently witnessed the 2-day plunge in the price of gold.  That was pretty “big” but I don’t believe that’s the “something big” that I’ve been anticipating.  Instead, I suspect that there’s more coming and possibly soon.  But, again, I could be wrong.

Here’s a radio interview by Pastor Butch Paugh of a Lieutenant in one of the North Carolina police departments.  This Lieutenant claims to have inside information that a nation-wide gun confiscation is planned to take place.

The interview was conducted on January 2nd.  The Lieutenant hinted that he was not only a police officer but had spent some time in military intelligence, and that plans for the coming gun confiscation have been evolving since the mid-1980s.  He stated that he believed that 75% of the police officers and about 45% of the sheriffs would stand with the people rather than the government.   He didn’t know, but he stated in January that door-to-door gun confiscation would begin somewhere within 6 months (before the end of June) and would be preceded and somehow justified by an economic collapse.

The interview seemed credible, convincing and scary.  Plus, it’s consistent with my own “gut” feeling that “something big” is just around the corner. So, I’m inclined to believe the Lieutenant’s warnings.

Nevertheless, those warnings don’t make good sense to me.  The logistics of sending the police to go door-to-door to confiscate all firearms in this country make gun confiscation a very difficult problem.  Some estimate that 100 million private Americans may hold over 300 million firearms.

According to Wikipedia, as of A.D. 2010, there were about 256 police officers (at the local, state and federal levels altogether) for ever 100,000 Americans.  That’s roughly one police officer for every 400 Americans or one police officer for every 130 armed Americans.  If only 5 out of each 130 armed Americans shoot to retain their right to keep and bear arms, what are the odds that a typical cop can visit 400 people and disarm the 130 who are armed without being shot and possibly killed?

How long would it take for one cop to visit 400 Americans, identify the 130 who are armed, and then disarm them?  I don’t see how the average cop could visit more than 4 Americans per hour.  That implies that the average cop would spend 100 hours–two and a half weeks–to identify and disarm his “fair share” of 130 armed Americans.

That’s doable, but what if the cops went out as partners, or in teams of 5 or 10?  The number of man-hours required to find and disarm each of the 130 armed Americans would increase in proportion to the size of the “confiscation teams”.  If you play with the math a little, you’ll see that it’s possible that a 10-man confiscation team couldn’t find and disarm more than about 1 armed American every hour–that’s 10 man-hours expended to disarm one American. If there are 100 million armed Americans, it might take up to 1 billion man-hours to disarm every armed American.  I’ll bet it would take at least 500 million man-hours to disarm the entire nation.

There’s no way that the police–in the aftermath of an economic collapse when people are starving, rioting and looting–could find an extra 500 million or even 100 million extra man-hours to go door-to-door just to confiscate guns.

Even if we brought all soldiers back home, they’d only double the number the police.  In the midst of an economic collapse, that wouldn’t be enough to make much difference.

Even if there was enough manpower to confiscate all the guns, it would still take several weeks or months to do so.  During that delay, everyone who had guns would be burying their firearms in the pasture or hiding them behind the walls or some such.  If it were possible for the police/military to visit every American within one month, I still doubt that they could find and confiscate more than half the nation’s firearms–if that.

My point is that door-to-door gun confiscation doesn’t seem mathematically probable.  The government might declare all guns illegal, demand that all guns be surrendered, and order the police to shoot anyone on sight who had or was even suspected of having a firearm.  But door-to-door confiscation does not make sense to me.

So.  Here I have an interview that sounds credible and is consistent with my “feeling” that “something big” may in the next couple of months–and yet the interview’s primary assertion (that we’re on the verge of door-to-door gun confiscation) does not make sense to me.

So, what do you think?  Is the information in the following interview credible?  Persuasive?  Or improbable?  Does the Lieutenant in this  interview provide good information?  Or good disinformation?

    Alfred, you are forgetting to factor in the Americans who WILL shoot to protect their rights and stop a tyrannical Governent, who will be reducing that police force significantly. Where I live, even if the sherriff’s deputied stood with the Government (and I truly hope that is not the case), there are only 3 or 4 deputies at the most available here, and it would take a couple of minutes, at the most, to eliminate the threat of confiscation. I am sure this area is not unique, and the same scenario would take place in hundreds, or even thousands of locations which are outside of heavily populated areas.

    Those living in the cities are probably most at-risk, but those living “in the country” (probably those with the most guns, also, and the willingness to use them) could take a heavy toll on the confiscators. hopefully, those of us living “in the country” actually have sheriffs who would side with the People anyway, as we usually know them personally, not like city cops.

    Unfortunately , I feel the same things as you, but I keep hoping something “divine” will intercede and prevent another Nazi Germany-type occurence. There are way too many sheep in this country for the rest of us to even begin to protect, and I suspect a large number of them are going to reap what they have sown, which is…oh,oh, absolutely nothing!

    One thing about people like you is that you have provide non-stop inspiration and education about what “may” (or may not) be coming, so you have, to a great degree, made our preparedness possible, so I can only hope that we are all there to support and defend you if the “something big” does occur. 3% of the People kicke dthe british out the first time. I don’t think I have ever read about the % in the war of 1812, but I bet there ia a whole lot more of us now, and they aren’t aking away our guns….over THEIR dead bodies….

    We need the Chiefs of Staff of the armed forces to commit MUTINY against their Commander and Chief, & the traitors in Congress but I don’t think it will happen. Sometimes I LOVE to be wrong.

    If they manage to fake the ‘alien’ ships landing on the White House lawn well enough, some may turn their guns in voluntarily.

    All the world is a stage etc ;-)

    I believe the event coming is a COMEX default which will have far reaching implications.Gold is leaving the country in an accelerated fashion and heading east ,heading to safety.You are right Al the G and S life rafts are are being sought after in a fevered pitch.

    The billboards are up all over the place flashing “destination third world”. Momentum is gathering speed and the time to purchase G and S is quickly commencing. All I read is telling me that there is no supply available for big buyers ,soon to for the small guy at his local G ang S suppliers.

    Can you perceive what THIRD WORLD AMERIKA is gonna be like?

    May Yahweh help us and may he destroy those who seek our destruction!

    This all sounds like “THE END IS NEAR”. Should we start storing up food, etc, like the Y2K prediction that never came true? Is this the so-called “7 year tribulation” about to happen? It all sounds too New Testament for me.

    I believe that many more disasters (man made) will occur this summer and fall causing the president to declare martial law ,suspend elections and continue his “Hitler movement”in OUR country. I hope I am wrong.

    It is a known fact that foreign military training units are stationed all over the US–for what purpose?–they wouldn’t have a problem shooting Americans in the attempt to confiscate their arms, all for the purpose of UN peace keeping plan.

    Here’s a publication from the US Dept. of State

    Freedom From War
    The United States Program 
for General and Complete 
Disarmament in a Peaceful 
World 
    http://dosfan.lib.uic.edu/ERC/arms/freedom_war.html

    The law for General and Complete Disarmament is known as Public Law 87-297. Look for it under Title 22, Foreign Relations and Intercourse:

      It’s true that foreign troops would have little problem shooting us. It’s also true that we would have far less problems shooting foreign troops than we’d have shooting American troops and/or American police. I wouldn’t want to be a foreign soldier attempting to enforce gun confiscation laws in this country.

        I have been arrested by “Oriental, Mexican,& Black gov-co “Law Enforcement agents both male & female. I don’t know if the Oriental agents were Chinese,Japanese,Korean,etc. SO,we already have what I call “foreign soldiers” in this country. Also, at times, when the handcuffs were put on me with my arms in front & not behind my back, I noticed,”MADE IN ENGLAND” was written/embedded on the handcuffs.I don’t believe this is just a coincidence. Too many “States” have their handcuffs MADE IN ENGLAND? The words were in all caps on the handcuffs.

    The real tragedy of the Boston bombing was not the victims (my heart goes out to all), the real tragedy was when I witnessed military style police going door to door and removing residence and treating them like criminals. In others words the lose of your Rights!

    The Boston bombing tragedy was just the start of indoctrinating people to allow searches, a violation of God’s given fourth amendment right.

    I believe that we will see more and more so-called terrorism in order to remove more and more rights. It’s not time yet for govt. to totally pull the rug out from under most. It will start with the anti-gun states first and slowly progress.

      The shutting down of a major metropolitan area and completely enveloping an entire suburb military style, then going house to house and searching and sticking rifle muzzles in peoples’ faces was a terrible day for this country. The saddest part is no one really appeared to resist in any manner.

      I would argue that the that the Boston false flag was a brilliant success. Next time a division size military element will be used in the same manner over a larger area. In my opinion.

      @ deb, while in the USMC infantry our company did a combined arms assault demonstration for communist Chinese generals. It had me scratching my head. This was about A.D. 2002.

      slave on
      ex 0331

      P.S. Having viewed many clips of the various SWAT teams assaulting that Boston suburb, I can say tactically those guy were atrcious in many ways. Thankfully for us.

    Hey Al, Brady here. I have been pondering how they will actually implement their plan. Either this is extremely intuitive insight, or just a nightmare, but here goes. All of the psychiatrists who catalog new mental diseases in their glorious DSM, (and remove those that they choose to remove, i.e. homosexuality), it is time they create a new mental disease called “Weapon Absence Paranoia”. Once they get the parameters described, the job will be to ask everybody with the question, “Do you fear being without a self defense weapon?” If the answer is no, then, please hand in all of whatever weapons you have. If the answer is YES! then YOU HAVE A MENTAL DISEASE that then WARRANTS you to be raided, and have your weapons forcibly removed, because everyone is in agreement that people with mental diseases should not have guns. You simply cannot be allowed to have weapons AND a Mental Disease at the same time. How’s that for a plan?

        I don’t believe brady would be interested in being a government bureaucrat “paper-pusher.” I think he sees them for what they are & how they think. Right brady?

      That is one of the reasons I am in the process of rescinding my psychologist license nunc pro tunc. The DSM has always been crap.. and now it’s engulfing the entire outhouse. Look at how the USSR perverted psychiatry. Same here but more subtly. And we have the new gulags already built and waiting… The proles may hop willingly into the boxcars…. but many non-proles have singularly different notions.

    They won’t have to go door to door. When the US dollar finally crashes, people will wake up one morning not knowing how they suddenly became so poor. Already, almost all of Asia is trading with each other in their own currencies, no longer using the USD. Russia and China trading with each other NOT in USD. China and Japan are trading with each other NOT in USD. When all those dollars finally get back home, plus, all the non-stop printing the Fed is doing, the USD will be worthless. Food will be available at the supermarket but no one will be able to afford it. The majority of people, especially in the large urban areas, have no food stored whatsoever. They will be broke, hungry, and the government will offer food in return for your guns.

      Oh, and if you are storing food, keep it quiet. Those who aren’t will report you. The gov’t will confiscate your food and your neighbors will cheer them on because they have no food.
