Opinion by Allen West

Allen West Molon Labe tatooMy right inner forearm has a simple tattoo with the words “Molon Labe.” My message to the progressive socialist left, “Come, Take,” because I will not surrender to you.

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- If you cherish your individual freedom and liberty, please read this entire missive, and share its warning.

This last week was the National Rifle Association (NRA) winter board meeting. As you should know by now, reading these pages, the NRA is the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, founded in 1871 in New York to improve rifle marksmanship. The NRA is today the foremost guardian of the Second Amendment right of all Americans to be able to protect themselves, their lives, their liberty, their loved ones, their property. Without a doubt, as you have heard me say previously, an armed individual is a citizen, an unarmed individual is a subject — and history has proven so. As a matter of fact, it was those few brave men who stood before the greatest military power in the world on April 19, 1775, at Lexington Green knowing they British were marching towards Concord Massachusetts to destroy an armaments factory . . . to disarm the American patriots whom they deemed rebels.

Years ago, 480 BC, at a place called Thermopylae, Liberty and Freedom stood before the invasion of Tyranny in the Persian army under Xerxes. When Tyranny told Liberty to lay down their arms, Spartan King Leonidas replied, “Molon Labe.”

In October 1835 at a place called Gonzales, Texas, once again Tyranny stood before Liberty and Freedom, and demanded a cannon be surrendered, Liberty replied in English the basic translation of Leonidas’ words, “Come and Take it.”

One of the great honors in my life was to be elected to the Board of the National Rifle Association back in 2016 for a three-year term. I will be up for reelection to the board this year and the voting window is from February to April, the results to be announced at the NRA Annual Meeting during last week of April in Indianapolis, Indiana. I do hope to continue my service in defense of our Second Amendment right, and with this new progressive socialist House of Representatives majority, the future of individual freedom and liberty is under assault in America.

Gabby GiffordsGabby Giffords

As reported by Politico:

“House Democrats will introduce their proposal to require universal backgrounds checks for gun sales on Tuesday, the eighth anniversary of former Rep. Gabby Gifford’s shooting, according to Democratic lawmakers and aides. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Mike Thompson (Calif.) — who heads up a Democratic task force on gun violence — will join Giffords in introducing the bill, which will be dubbed “H.R. 8” in honor of the Arizona Democratic lawmaker.

Giffords nearly died in the Jan. 8, 2011, shooting in Tucson, Arizona, which left six people dead and 15 wounded. She resigned from Congress in January 2012.

“Since the shooting at Sandy Hook, the Gun Violence Prevention Task Force has been fighting for a chance to pass legislation that will help save lives,” Thompson said in a statement. “Finally, with our new majority that ran on helping to prevent gun violence, we will introduce a bipartisan, universal background checks bill. We will hold hearings, we will have a vote, and this legislation will finally pass the House.”

“In communities across America, courageous survivors, families and young advocates are showing outstanding courage and persistence in demanding an end to the horrific scourge of gun violence in our nation,” Pelosi said in a statement.

The Democratic proposal would require federal background checks on all gun sales, including private transactions. There will be some small exemptions to those checks, such as transfers between family members, or temporary use of a gun for hunting.

Gun-control groups estimate that roughly “one-fifth or more of gun sales don’t include background checks.”

Let’s have an honest discussion, something the left does not want:

Jared Loughner was the person who shot Rep. Giffords, he passed a background check. The problem was that Loughner’s mental condition was never reported, and therefore not available in the system so that when he applied on BATF Form 4473 he would have been denied.

Adam Lanza was the shooter in Sandy Hook. His mother was a legal, law-abiding gun owner who had passed background checks. He son was mentally ill and was able to kill her, gain access to her firearms, and proceeded to enact his evil and kill little children. In each of these cases, and many others, the issue is not background checks, it is mental illness.

However, do not let facts get in the way of what the left really wants, to disarm the American people.

Those who sell illegal firearms are not going to follow any law passed by these delusional socialists whose aim is to render law-abiding Americans defenseless. There are some 100 million law-abiding and legal gun owners in America, a little over 5M are NRA members. C’mon, y’all!

My point is that we do not have an epidemic of gun violence . . . we have an issue with those suffering from mental illness having access to firearms, such as Nicolas Cruz in the Parkland shooting. Cruz should have been reported by law enforcement and fallen under the Baker Act.

I have purchased firearms at gun shows, and guess what? I went through a background check. I go through a background check each time I decide to purchase a firearm.

What the progressive socialists want is universal gun registration, they want to know who has what. That has always been a precursor to tyranny.

Michael BloombergThis movement is heavily funded by the likes of Michael Bloomberg, who is spending millions of dollars to destroy the NRA.

This movement is heavily funded by the likes of Michael Bloomberg, who is spending millions of dollars to destroy the NRA. Bloomberg’s wealth is at or near some $52B and he still brings in some $250M a year. All of these anti-second amendment movements are bankrolled by him, including the “March for our Lives” event in Washington, DC. Certainly, a group of high school kids could not pull that together. Further, Bloomberg has a willing ally in New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who is doing everything he can by way of weaponizing government against the NRA. The time is coming for us all to decide which side will you stand with, liberty and freedom or Pelosi, Bloomberg, and Cuomo.

If you still do not believe there is a wholehearted effort to disarm legal, law-abiding American gun owners, here is proof. As reported by Ballotpedia:

“The Florida Ban on Military-Style Firearms and Disqualifications for Firearm Possession Initiative (Initiative #18-03) may appear on the ballot in Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment on November 3, 2020.

The measure would ban persons residing or entering the state from possessing military-style firearms. The measure would define military-style firearms as “any gun with a magazine capacity of more than seven rounds of ammunition or any weapon capable of firing in fully automatic mode, any weapon capable of being modified in any manner to fire in a fully automatic mode or any weapon classified as a sniper rifle.”

The measure would also prohibit persons from possessing any firearm if the person had (a) been convicted of a felony; (b) been convicted of three or more misdemeanors; (c) his or her driver’s license revoked for driving under the influence, reckless driving, or excessive speeding; (d) been subject to two or more domestic abuse emergency calls or investigations; (e) been diagnosed by a medical professional as psychologically disturbed; or (f) made any substantiated threat of violence against another person.

The measure would delete the existing language of Section 8(a) of Article I of the Florida Constitution, which provides people with the constitutional right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves.”

Again, if you read BATF Form 4473, many of these provisions are already listed that would nullify being able to acquire a firearm. The problem is that many states lag in updating the database, which was a problem with the Sutherland Springs, Texas shooting.

Think about this: any weapon that can have more than seven rounds will be considered a “military-style firearm.” But that is not just the end of it, these leftists are seeking to rewrite the Florida constitution.

“This Amendment recognizes the Florida National Guard and other organized police forces as the well-regulated militia of the State and authorizes them to keep and use military-style weapons. Possession of military-style weapons is prohibited except for the militia. Other persons convicted of various types of crimes or investigated for abuses are also prohibited from possessing guns or firearms.”

This ballot initiative is being proposed by Stop the Killing Committee, look them up. What is very disconcerting is that it will only take 766,200 valid signatures by February 1, 2020 to get this initiative on the Florida ballot for the 2020 election. And ya think this is all happening as a coincidence?

Ladies and gents, this is no longer about gun control, it is about disarmament. When a progressive socialist group is redefining the meaning of a well-regulated militia to only be law enforcement and State National Guard, well, don’t think that Florida will be the only place where ballot initiatives such as this will pop up. If such an initiative were to pass, then it establishes a legal precedent for other states to follow. And we all thought that the Heller and McDonald court decisions were clear? Now you see why the left went apoplectic about Justice Brett Kavanaugh?

My right inner forearm has a simple tattoo with the words “Molon Labe.” My message to the progressive socialist left, “Come, Take,” because I will not surrender to you. I will not succumb to your weaponizing government to achieve the disarmament of We the People. If it is a fight you seek, well, it is a fight you will get. Please, do not mistake us for those weak, feckless Republicans on Capitol Hill. The blood flowing through our veins is that of the men of Lexington Green and Gonzales. We are American citizens, and will never be your subjects.

I, Lieutenant Colonel Allen B. West, am the NRA, and I am Freedom’s Safest Place!

      When it comes time to take your guns, the republicans in congress will approve it and likely initiate the event.
      They caved on feminism, they caved on pervert marriage, and they always run up huge deficits while pretending not to.
      They will not only cave on gun control, they will be who sends the federal police to take your guns.
      And they will do so without opposition from the mealy mouthed “pry it from my cold hands” ” well armed militia” weekend warriors, who have sat idly by while our government has flooded us with invaders.

    • Justin Case

      If you are coming to take my guns, be sure to bring yours…

      • Rockledge

        Son, the government has tools that can take your guns from you without you being able to so much as toss a rock at them.
        Pry it from your cold dead hands? No problem.

    • Man

      I like you articles because your statements are so flawed:

      If a person doesn’t know he has mental issues and it isn’t visable to others, then it isn’t shown in background checks. Basically what you are advocating here are full psychoanalys before a puchace of a gun.

      Adam Lanza case is kinda backwards. It shows That if the mother didn’t have guns in the house, she wouldn’t have been shot. It also shows that the way she stored her guns didn’t give protection to giving other people access to them.

      so Lets go to the country of the Swiss: Better metal health care, High population of gun owners, Better gun regulation and no mass shootings to thje extent of the US. What is the difference? Their citizens don’t think their government is out to get them and actually wants to protect it as their citizens are the military.

      Also it is flawed thinking that conservatives don’t want better regulation on guns

      • Rockledge

        I am anti-gun in that I wish gunpowder had never been invented. That the united states is flooded with WMD like handguns is very dangerous, considering that we also have wide open borders. Back when the average citizen had good sense and took pride in his community, guns were not the horrid danger they are now.

        On the other hand, if we are going to be a gun totin’ criminal saturated society, the average citizen needs the benefit of detente’. If we are going to have guns, lets have them so that all law abiding citizens have access.

        The problem is that the extreme left wants there to be gun control so that the criminal invaders and the ghetto rats rule their neighborhoods, but the extreme right wants no regulation gun saturation of society.

        Both extremes are insane and impossible given the saturation of guns in our culture.

        What is truly dangerous that the extreme right does not consider is that having a society saturated with guns means that the criminals in this country without permission from backward cultures such as Somalia and South america, both of which are places where plenty of people hate us ( and in somolias case, hate everyone) also have access to guns.

        If we are going to have guns, we need to have them. But we need controls that not only control what kinds of guns
        ( nobody needs a gun that pops off 5 rounds a second) , that control how many projectiles the magazine can hold, and that insure that guns are registered.
        Having them registered is very important, it gives police a tool to work with. If they have some neighborhood thug in their sites but can’t catch his evil as at anything ( assuming they are stupid because they are criminals is shallow, we have a LOT of very intelligent clever bad people in our society), they CAN bust them if they find an unregistered or otherwise illegal weapon on them.
        And of course, we don’t want criminals who are better armed than the police.

        As far as “cold dead hands ” weekend warriors go, they are full of shit. They haven’t formed a militia to protect us from a government that will not protect our borders, and they haven’t stepped up and enforced immigration laws that the government will not.
        If they will not do that, then they will never resist the government.
        Even if they did, the government has technology that can easily override and dominate ANY uprising of any size, unless that uprising is initiated and orchestrated by the military itself. Which will not happen because military personnel are among the most indoctrinated and brainwashed people on the planet.
