MUST SEE! US Military Officer Calls For Massive Gun Grab!

Despite his oath to uphold and protect the Constitution, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Bateman is calling for a massive gun confiscation in the US. Much of his reason for wanting this rights-trampling action comes from his utter confusion about the 2nd Amendment. According to his bio, he has been a teacher of history, but clearly can’t grasp the material himself.

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

The main thrust of Bateman’s argument comes from his notion that the 2nd Amendment is not an individual right. Even though the Supreme Court has ruled that it does indeed protect personal gun ownership, he is still harping on the definition of “militia.” The militia is the sum total of the able bodied people. That is to say, you and I are the militia. Our right to bear arms is protected.

Bateman sees it differently. He claims that because of the Militia Act of 1903 that established the National Guard, we are no longer the militia. The National Guard is under the command of the US military, so in his argument, we do not have a personal right to bear arms.

I have one question for Lt. Col. Bateman: Why would the Founding Fathers create an amendment that guarantees the government’s right to gun ownership? The point of the Constitution and the Bill Of Rights are to limit the government’s powers and insure that the people’s rights are protected. The Constitution is a blueprint for a free society. There is only tyranny when the government has all the guns.

For this “historian” to have such deep misunderstanding of history is baffling, but it doesn’t stop him from trying to “fix” what he believes is a flawed amendment. He lays out his 6-point plan to disarm the American people:

1. The only guns permitted will be the following:
a. Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets. No 7-11 in history has ever been held up with one of these.
b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.

c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.

2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them. (Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.)

3. Police departments are no longer allowed to sell or auction weapons used in crimes after the cases have been closed. (That will piss off some cops, since they really need this money. But you know what they need more? Less violence and death. By continuing the process of weapon recirculation, they are only making their jobs — or the jobs of some other cops — harder.)

4. We will submit a new tax on ammunition. In the first two years it will be 400 percent of the current retail cost of that type of ammunition. (Exemptions for the ammo used by the approved weapons.) Thereafter it will increase by 20 percent per year.

5. We will initiate a nationwide “buy-back” program, effective immediately, with the payouts coming from the DoD budget. This buy-back program will start purchasing weapons at 200 percent of their face value the first year, 150 percent the second year, 100 percent the third year. Thereafter there will be a 10 year pause, at which point the guns can be sold to the government at 10 percent of their value for the next 50 years.

6. The major gun manufactures of the United States, less those who create weapons for the federal government and the armed forces, will be bought out by the United States of America, for our own damned good.

Pretty scary stuff coming from a US military officer. Again, he has some major confusion about the 2A. Read it a few more times Mr. Bateman. It makes no mention of hunting. The Framers of the Constitution were not looking to ensure the people’s right to hunt was not infringed.

In the article Bateman states that he is now living in England. I think the King’s logic has clouded his judgment and turned him against the country he took an oath to protect. Lucky for him that the Commander In Chief is also a gun-grabbing socialist or he’d be looking at a court martial.
