Taxing Your Way to Civil War, or, What's $400 times NOTHING?
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

... "Scott Dixon wants a $400 tax each year for each firearm in America. He believes that this will lead to fewer firearm deaths. Perhaps, but only after one side or the other wins the civil war which would erupt if his proposal is adopted."

"Frankly, some of us firearm owners are done being pushed back from our traditional rights to liberty and property. For 75 years we have backed up at every gun control law, and we will now back up no further. Has crime abated because there are more gun control laws that, by definition, restrain only the law-abiding? No, but Dixon isn’t really after criminals and their behavior, he’s after law-abiding citizens’ firearms – their means of defense against criminal behavior and oppressive government." ...

Folks thinking about the coming struggle should ask whether and/or how earlier strategic concepts will apply to the 21st-century domestic American context.

The linked essays are a good introduction to the Prussian concept of "schwerpunkt", as well as the same idea applied to 4GW by John Robb.

Food for thought and further reflection.
 

"Unambiguously describing the Second Amendment as encompassing a personal right"

"At The Volokh Conspiracy, David Kopel highlights an important new article on St. George Tucker that has particular relevance to the debate over D.C. v. Heller and the original meaning of the Second Amendment:"
"St. George Tucker is perhaps the preeminent source of the original public meaning of the Constitution. His 5-volume American edition of Blackstone's Commentaries was the by far the leading legal treatise in the Early Republic.... Tucker's analysis of the Second Amendment plainly described it as an individual right, encompassing the keeping and bear of arms for personal self-defense, for hunting, and for militia service. Justice Scalia's majority opinion in Heller quoted from Tucker's American Blackstone." ...

I could see my dad making his way past the other passengers with a Winchester .22 pump in his hand. It was beautiful. We were still saving for a proper case, so he was carrying it openly."

"As we walked up the block to our house, we talked to several neighbors as they admired our new rifle. ... I still own and love that beautiful little gun."

"Dear Mr. Millner,"

"I was a long-time customer of Remington, but I won't be again until you dump H-S Precision. Your unconvincing statement below criticizes H-S, not for flaunting the endorsement of an unrepentant and unpunished murderer who shot a mother's face off, but rather for choosing a 'controversial spokesman' contrary to 'business common sense'. Contrary to your statement, H-S is all over Remington's website. Why you would keep doing business with a company that bragged about an endorsement from a murderer of innocents is beyond me. I posted my two cents below at The War on Guns."

"As a rule, concealed-carry licenses are off limits to anyone with a history of crime, substance abuse, drunk driving or serious mental illness. Not to mention that most states require safety training. In any case, people who are inclined to commit mayhem generally don't seek state licenses to carry guns, any more than they ask permission to break into houses or beat up girlfriends. It's the law-abiding folks who apply for licenses."

"Why would peaceable souls want to take their guns when hiking or camping in a national park? Same reason they might take them other places: a desire to protect themselves. ..." ...

"Judging from a wealth of experience, adopting this new policy would be a non-event, with no unwanted repercussions. ..."

When A School Shooter Seeks A License To Carry A Loaded, Concealed Handgun

"Recently we learned that a convicted killer in one of the most notorious school massacres in American history tried to get a permit to carry a concealed handgun." ...

"... it was the set of fingerprints that Grant had to provide to the police, pursuant to Arkansas' licensing regulations, that proved key to discovering his true identity. ..." ...

"The key lesson to be learned from Andrew Golden's blocked attempt is that there are things we can do to make it harder for dangerous people to get guns. Many criminals ... still go through legal channels to get firearms every single day." ...

KABA Note: And if an armed teacher had dropped Andrew Golden in his tracks that day in Jonesboro this would have been a moot point. You can't use the results of your failed policies (like 'gun-free' school zones) to call for still more draconian policies.

After telling the burglar to stop, the subject allegedly reached into his pocket as if to get a gun or weapon and began walking back towards the kitchen, at which point Murphy shot him." ...

"The case involved trafficking in weapons in order to bring guns into New York City.
