Recent Events Only Reinforce Our Need For Gun Rights And Community Militias

June 2, 2022

By Brandon Smith

I want to stress a very important point first and foremost, because I don’t think the political left and the average gun grabber understands the gravity of the situation and they need to be educated:

Liberty advocates will NEVER give up their guns. It’s not going to happen. We have drawn a line in the sand when it comes to the 2nd Amendment and we are not going to move, not even an inch. It does not matter what legislation or executive orders Joe Biden promotes, and it does not matter if there are future criminal events involving firearms. There is no scenario in which we are going to hand over our ability to defend ourselves and rely on the government alone. All the indignant wailing and preaching from anti-gun leftists is for naught; they will get nothing.

Gun rights are integral to a free society because they act as a deterrent to potential government over-reach and authoritarianism. Tyrants might infiltrate politics and take over governments, and they might even THINK they have the ability to oppress the public, but they will never be quite sure they can get away with it as long as the public has the means to “reach out and touch them” from a distance. They will always have doubts and this is vital for freedom – When tyrants have doubts, liberty prevails.

I covered the issue of incoming gun bans in the latest issue of my newsletter, The Wild Bunch Dispatch, but I wanted to examine here the wider implications of disarmament; including what the consequences will be if we were to comply, and what the establishment should fear when most of us don’t.

I have said for many years now that I am certain that anti-gun interests WILL try to disarm the American people before 2030, simply because they must. They cannot achieve the implementation of the “Great Reset” or the “New World Order” (their terminology from their own mouths) without first taking away our ability to fight back. They know that if they do not disarm Americans they will eventually fail. It’s really that easy to understand; if we keep our guns we will win. If we let our guns be taken, we will lose.

One thing must be made abundantly clear in this debate: Gun crimes are irrelevant to gun rights. They do not matter in terms of the constitution, nor should they matter. Our rights supersede the potential for abuse by bad people, and they supersede the whims of government.

The political left seems to think that gun crime is all that matters. They obsess over every single tragedy not because they actually care about the victims or the families involved, but because they assume that each gun crime is a kind of currency that they can use to pay for the eventual purchase of the 2nd Amendment. They think they can buy the option to erase our gun rights using the lives of shooting victims as a trade.

I’m sorry I have to inform them, but that’s not how it works. That’s not how it will EVER work. And if they think they can force the issue, then there are millions of us in the liberty movement that will teach them a painful lesson in humility. There will come a day when they’ll wish they had been more reasonable and not turned to authoritarianism.

In the meantime, they will try every trick in the book to con the public into thinking that incremental measures or executive orders are needed as a means to save lives. They won’t save lives, they’ll only lead to the disarmament of the population, making it easier to subjugate us and eliminate resistance. The key to understanding gun control laws is to accept the reality that gun grabbers have NO INTENTION of staying satisfied with “common sense” gun control; they will only be satisfied with gun confiscation. This is why no quarter can be given to them. No compromises. No diplomacy. Nothing.

It’s important to clarify where gun rights advocates are coming from, because leftists don’t get it. They are perfectly willing to give up their freedoms in exchange for false security. Let me put it this way:

History shows us that disarmament of any population or subset of a population is eventually followed by the oppression and often genocide of that same population. Statistically, disarmament has led to some of the worst mass murders in the history of humanity. We risk losing far more lives by giving up our guns than we risk by keeping our guns.

By extension, a common argument among gun grabbers is that other western nations have extensive gun restrictions and they don’t have tyranny. I beg to differ. As we recently witnessed with the covid mandates and the attempted vaccine passports, many governments from the EU to Australia and New Zealand took the mask off (pun intended) and showed their true totalitarian colors to the point that they even created covid camps where people were locked up without due process.

I would argue that had it not been for the growing opposition among conservatives in the US and in parts of Canada, the covid mandate agenda would still be active today and most of our freedoms would be erased. The opposition in the US is the reason why medical tyranny was scrapped through most of the world. For if we can be free despite the existence of covid, then so can everyone else.

And how were conservatives able to defeat the mandates? Ultimately, it’s because we have guns.

But what about the deaths of children in Uvalde and elsewhere? Don’t they matter? Of course they do, and every pro-gun person out there agrees. What we don’t agree on is the idea that government should have a monopoly on security and on force. When government has a monopoly on force, millions of people die instead of dozens.

In reality, the events in Uvalde prove once again that defenders of the 2nd Amendment are right. Reports from the scene of the shooting now indicate that police actually failed to stop the shooter (Salvador Ramos) from entering Robb Elementary School and they were ordered to stay outside and do nothing as the shooter moved freely for over an hour. Ramos was finally stopped by a single Border Patrol agent who went in on his own.

Adding insult to injury, police used force to prevent parents and community members from going in and doing the job they refused to do. I want to point out that the fact that the police were “ordered” to stay out and keep people out is no excuse – Some orders should be ignored and if you don’t ignore them then you are partly responsible for the consequences.

I suggest that two simple solutions could have saved lives in Uvalde without erasing our constitutional rights.

First, if public schools removed their “gun free zone” status and allowed teachers to conceal carry, then Ramos likely would have been dead before harming a single child. Or, he would have at least faced opposition and been cornered.

Second, if community militias still existed in the US as the Constitution demands, then parents could have organized a much faster response and walked right over any police that refused to go in and do what needed to be done. Parents are allowed to risk their lives for their children, and anyone that says otherwise should be ignored or trampled.

The answer to crime of all kinds (not just crimes that involve guns) is more community involvement and a visible armed presence. We need more people to be armed and more individual responsibility for the security of those that cannot defend themselves.

A gun ban will not protect us from crime, it only encourages tyranny. It also doesn’t matter because there’s nothing that Biden or the political left can do to take our guns anyway. Other solutions need to be tried, and there is a reason why gun grabbers refuse to acknowledge any alternatives – Because they don’t care about protecting the innocent, they only care about eliminating a portion of the constitution that has long prevented them from gaining more power.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, further encroachments on the 2nd Amendment will lead to war. Leftists might welcome this in the assumption that they have the government and the military on their side. They may not realize that many in the military are also gun rights supporters. They also might have forgotten the results of asymmetric wars in places like Afghanistan, and frankly, many Americans have far better gear and much better training than the Taliban. This will not end well for anti-gun authoritarians.

        I agree we mustn’t give an inch. But be advised that if our leftist government bans ARs, they’ll try to twist our arms, threaten to take our jobs (like the vaccine mandate), our kids, our pets, try take our homes away from us if we don’t surrender our guns. Shut off our power, gas, water, internet. We’ll have to stand firm, and tell them: MOLON LABE.

        • Daniel V June 5, 2022 at 12:13 pm

          The irony is that, if the preppers have backup generators (solar or tesla coils), their own food and water supply, and if some even have their own homes constructed on their own, those threats are completely empty. Besides, one’s kids and pets will get killed anyway if they listened to the government’s demands. They’ll have to be mentally challeneged to think that those groups will be dumb enough to cave in.

  • CM Dutch June 2, 2022 at 7:31 am

    • Daniel V June 2, 2022 at 7:51 am

      Do you seriously think that true patriots would cave in to organization like fema? You know one of the most corrupt of it’s kind? It seems you have not paid attention at all to the fact that there still large supplies of emergency food avaliable that can last for years. Also, may I bring up gardening?

      At this point, I’m starting to think that you desperately want the liberty movement to lose.

      • Amuzed_Traveler June 4, 2022 at 4:24 pm

        The authorities will come for gun owners at their homes, one at a time. With your family there, will you risk their safety by confronting the authorities? I think most will not.

        This is why I think we need to act on the offensive rather than wait them out. Because we can’t wait them out.

        To correct Brandon on one small (maybe) point above – we are past the “possibility” that totalitarians “might” infiltrate our government. Our government and the bureaucracy that supports it are largely totalitarian. Now.

          No, you don’t “go on the offensive” against a political action that hasn’t happened yet unless you want to destroy your own optics and justify the gun grabbers. This is why you need community organization; if you don’t have it, then you need to get to work. The American Revolution was launched on the back of the confrontation at Lexington Bridge where the British were the clear aggressors – If the revolutionaries had gone to Boston and started shooting things up preemptively they would have lost all public support. Also, that statement was rhetorical; I’m well aware that the government is already largely corrupt.

      • Keith June 12, 2022 at 10:56 am

        Just bought a six month supply from My Patriot Supply. Will add more to it soon. It’s still not terribly expense either, for now.

    • Leprechaun June 2, 2022 at 7:51 am

      Won’t work – if it gets to that point and people realize that they have nothing to lose, then they literally have nothing to lose.

      There is not enough security personnel to lockdown every grocery store, food storage facility, warehouse, etc.

      Due to my background and that of my buddies, we could easily breach your local Walmart even if guarded by many law enforcement officers. Multiply this by all the grocery stores in my city, and there aren’t enough police to go around. Then, expand the area that needs to be guarded to the county and state, and then it just gets preposterous.

      • Daniel V June 2, 2022 at 8:36 am

        Agree with you 100% Leprechaun, if moderates give up their guns just to eat genetically modified junk food or fruit then they are a lost cause. Thats not how fighting fir freedom works.

      • wappy-john June 2, 2022 at 12:01 pm

        Ok but those stores will have nothing in them. The supply chain is easily shut down and you will have nothing but what you’ve stocked yourself already or can grow.

  • Bob+Bobbly+bobbing+along June 2, 2022 at 8:13 am

    For God’s sake Americans, just turn in your guns and be good little sheeple like everyone else!

    I couldn’t agree with you more, Brandon.
    In Europe, people have submitted far too easily and quickly to anti-cv19 measures. Even here in Switzerland, where the restrictions were less strict.
    In the “Western democracies”, unfortunately, the people, for the most part, have blind trust in their governments, the ruling class. They naively believe that “their” leaders will never act against the general interest.
    Sad and tragic reality in the Western “democracies”.

    • Keith June 4, 2022 at 6:10 am

      One of the reasons you have not had even more genocidal (or democidal) events in these so called “free” western nations is the amount of guns currently in the hands of the American populace.
      If we saw that in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Mainland Europe, etc…the populace of the U.S. would be even further hardened against disarmament. However, there were still abuses in nations like Australia during the covid lockdowns that would not have been tolerated in Kentucky, or Texas or South Carolina.

    Great article, Brandon! I couldn’t agree more!!!

  • Daniel V June 2, 2022 at 8:52 am

    One thing that has been bothering me recently is that recently, the us army and the rest of the military branches within our government is replacing their m4s/m16s and m249s with the nsgw winners, the sig spear and mg 68 respectively:

    The reason why I say this because from what I am seeing, the government does NOT want our soldiers ( the woke ones, not the patriots and conservative they will inevitably kick out) and alphabet thugs to be armed with the same weapons as “their enemy”. Don’t get me wrong, this will do nothing against gurella warfare tactics still and is only them desperately trying to outarm the patriots in the inevitable civil war. My only concern is that as this process is being completed, I speculate that the government will destroy any leftover supplies that civillians could potentially use (ammo and the like). I know this is a minor thing in the long run but I would like to hear everyones thoughts here about the nsgw stuff.

    • Ol' Grey Ghost June 2, 2022 at 11:40 am

      Years ago when critics of my choice to use AR and Garand platforms based on the 5.56 mm NATO rounds would belittle me, I would always point out that I could gather more ammunition by scavenging from the dead government agents who would be trying to eliminate me. Now with new weaponry in their hands, I’m not so sure anymore. You may have hit another nail on its suspicious head. Way to stay alert!

      • Daniel V June 2, 2022 at 1:26 pm

        To be honest, I was skeptical about the nsgw program from day one. In every other failed program (ACR1 (g11,steyr,colt), OICW(HK,AAI), ACR2(scar,remington), etc), they usually end up with just upgrading the m4/m16, but this program for some reason succeeded. Now they are just about to replace them in time for the midterms. It’s clear at this point that they just about to unleash lead on their own citizens.

        At the same time though, I see it more as a double edged sword, having 6.8 caliber rounds means absolutely nothing if it’s going to be use by traitors/weaklings that would pose a very little threat to us(at the end of the day, its the un that poses the real threat amyway). I actually REALLY do hope that they try to force them down every soldier’s throat, that will just give patriots equally good stuff in the long run.

        • Ol' Grey Ghost June 2, 2022 at 2:03 pm

          I’m old enough to have been a quietly disgruntled protester when they switched from the M1911 to the M9. Yes, they do occasionally push through change for whatever bizarre reason they can come up for justifying their choices over the usual bribes from the Military Industrial Complex and your suspicion might be one of them.
          As for the UN, when they send “Peacekeepers” (sic) to America they will be using military personnel from several African nations armed with AK-47’s. That way when patriots shoot them in acts of self-defense, the patriots can be called racists; an insult and label that has become meaningless from overuse…

          • JustOneGuy June 2, 2022 at 9:53 pm

            Interestingly enough, in stumbling over an article for the specs for the new rounds, it was mentioned that both the rounds are of a wholly new construction type (partly steel, partly brass…which us which was not clarified) and that was to support MUCH higher chamber pressures…approx. 80,000 lbs/inch.
            That last fact got my attention immediately, and could well be the motivation to push the contract through at speed…


  • Rodster June 2, 2022 at 9:20 am

    Ron Paul recently said in response to the mass shootings that those who want to give up their liberties in exchange for security will get “neither”. I agree with that because in the end, you lose both as all it does is empowers an already out of control, Leviathan Government.

    Look no further at disarmed Europe where their governments impose their will on their citizens.

  • Bej June 2, 2022 at 9:31 am

    Personally, I have never been a gun enthusiast however, considering todays circumstances, the 2nd amendment is more important than ever. Take it from an old timer, I came from a country where the 2nd amendment does not exist nor their freedoms. God’s speed to all gun owners, thank you for keeping the nasty shit at bay.

    “A free people ought 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.” ~ George Washington

    • Gauntlet33 June 2, 2022 at 11:07 am

      I wish more Leftists would see that quote as they seem to think that fear of the government is just pure paranoia, but Washington’s statement lets it be known that even 250 years ago, it was very normal to fear your government becoming tyrannical.

  • Greg B. June 2, 2022 at 9:43 am

    Something else to keep in mind is that the police have no legal obligation to protect you anyway. Their job is simply to clean up the mess and enforce government policy after the fact. Ultimately it’s up to you to be your own first responder because even if the cops show up there’s no guarantee they’ll do anything.

    You also notice the complete lack of press coverage for the mass shooting attempt that was foiled by an armed woman in West Virginia recently. I believe that’s because it proves our point. And us being proven right is unacceptable to them.

    • Steve June 2, 2022 at 3:21 pm

Many older folks seem just as brainwashed unfortunately. Splitting up the country seems inevitable but that has its issues also

      You must live in a blue state. The exact opposite is true where I live and in the majority of red states. I heard the same exact sentiments at the onset of the covid lockdowns – That there wasn’t enough people to oppose them. Yet we shut them down entirely. We destroyed their agenda. We’ll do the same exact thing with any attempt at gun control.

      • wappy-john June 2, 2022 at 12:05 pm

Same goes for the WHO Treaty that everyone’s wetting themselves about. Sure, the crappy Blue states will go for it hook, line and sinker, but it will never be work because the Red states will refuse to agree to it, and nations like Russia, India and Hungary will tell Tedros where to go. This is all linked because it’s all part of the globalist scumbags’ attempt to get rid of all opposition to the Great Reset

    Who said, “It’s better to die on my feet with a gun in my hand than to kneel at your feet without one”. They were right! “Gun free zones” is a BIG problem as criminals will always fill the vacuum. Schools, hospitals, AIRLINES, churches, etc. should be ARMED TO THE TEETH by trained concealed carry personnel… only a FOOL would try anything under those circumstances. The deterrent to mass shootings IS MORE ARMED GOOD GUYS, not taking away guns, because criminals will ALWAYS have them!!

    • Gauntlet33 June 3, 2022 at 10:31 am

      I agree. Similar to the saying in the 80s that neither the US nor the Russians would fire a nuke on the other since it would mean self-destruction, and I believe the same logic applies in smaller settings. If would be shooters / criminals know that a certain establishment is armed, then they forego the plan entirely or at the very least choose another location that is unarmed / “gun free”.

  • Runelite Run June 2, 2022 at 12:22 pm

    Well said – the elite know they have a problem on their hands because they want the resources of this nation (land, minerals, et. al.) but they can’t get to it because we will stop them. So they will attempt to do something that makes us kill each other off and then they swoop in and clean up the mess. The elite lose either way, but they’re stuck with their idiotic decisions and while they may play TV smiles and all, they will be running to the rocks to hide them from what’s coming for them. Run elite run!

    Brandon, read the newsletter. Great as always. What is so special about the lowers? I have heard to get them before. Is it a point of failure? Assume this refers to lower receiver of the dirty black rifle. Just got another bolt carrier assembly. Was a sale on at PSA last weekend.

    Curious about the lowers and would love a newsletter about NV Gen 3 vs Gen 4. I gotta a bad feeling out prepping days are almost over. Getting ready for the reason you prepped in the first place days.

    “80% Lowers
    Polymer lowers and 80% lowers are currently coming under attack from the ATF and Joe Biden. Even though I have not heard of a single incident in which an 80% lower was used in a criminal shooting, the government seems to be oddly focused on their existence. This suggests to me that they plan to institute some kind of national firearms tracking system, and 80% lowers would defeat their purposes. So, they are trying to ban them now BEFORE they bring that system into play.
    You can still find these lowers online for around $100, but I suspect they will not last long. When the ATF turns more aggressive, and they will, people will buy them up within a matter of days.”

  • Luke June 2, 2022 at 10:12 pm

    FYI this is comment I left on the Treehouse.

    There was a time after Newtown and Las Vegas when I argued with some on this very website. I said maybe we should think about a little capitulation as the dirty black rifle does have a lotta killin power. And it certainly does, but that’s the point. I was honest then and honest now. People that act like they’re no different from a pistol are only lying to themselves, but that’s ok with me as I mean no offense.

    After 2020 my memory will never fade. What they did to us is criminal beyond my comprehension at the time. Didn’t know what the hell was going on but it scared me. Lockdowns, riots, stolen election, and mandatory jabs or your life is ruined. Now we have what seems to be major and purposeful supply chain breakage. Food processing plants burning down. A deliberate goading of Russia to war intentions being to kill wheat and fertilizer supply looks too shady to be an accident. It was also to tank Russia’s economy but I am happy to say they are pulling through. I love it. Screw Globohomo and no I don’t believe Putin or Russia will save our asses. But maybe, just maybe they will send us some stingers haha.

    Now I am resolute. You can say I was naive but I dont think many of you understood what our supposedly benign government was capable of. Until 2020 they mostly looked like a bunch of clowns. They are clowns but not the funny type. I certainly understand they have no limits now and I am hear to say “My Cold Dead Hands.” Never again will I make that mistake.

    • dipdooo June 3, 2022 at 1:55 am

        My eyes were opened up towards the middle of 2020. From that point on, the evil was plain to see. Whether it’s better to live blissfully ignorant is another question… as there’s now basically two kinds of people: Leftists who believe the government’s lies, and those who fear those who believe the government’s lies.

          God, I feel that. I have two brothers who are as far left as you could be. Scares the living shit out of me. My younger brother (19) told me that he believes private property is an abomination… he’s anti-America essentially. Anti-freedom and self sufficiency. Lacking critical thought and being able to take facts at face value (like what happens to dissenting civilians when they’re disarmed.)

          I will never be able to understand the level of naivety it takes to believe the government truly gives a shit about you.

          So, I keep my thoughts to myself. It’s completely hopeless trying to talk any sense into marxist commies when they’re that far gone/detached from reality.

          I fear for the future simply because it seems that the majority of my generation are completely brainwashed and will very easily be led off a cliff. I hope I’m wrong.

            Hey Mairin. I’m 19 but for these past few years, I realized the true globalist agenda that still taking plan right now. Yes, I also worry about the fact of some people never waking up due to extensive social engineering, but there are still young people that resist the agenda. documentaries such as planet lockdown for example had not only other people my age, but also kids that achknowledge the new world order as an actual threat that is being played. I myself is still in the process of prepping, but I still know what is going on behind the scenes. As for the scenario at hand, While I feel that a civil war is something that will inevitably come to the united states, I still believe that a good amount of the conservative preppers will work together to stop the globalists from getting complete control in the us. Yes there is a lot of leftists that will attack all of us eventually, but numbers don’t mean to much if liberty minded people have great organization, nothing left to lose, and if the enemies we will fight are woke weaklings. Like Brandon Smith said in his civil war article, “When it comes down to average leftists, their movement is a paper tiger, a mirage. In the event of civil war the political left in the US would be easily annihilated.”(10/1/2021). Biden and his globalist backers can arm blm and the woke alphabet agencies as much as they want, they will still get anniliated by preppers (some of which are ex miltary, and all have proficient firearm training) and even some libertarian and conservative military members (and police officers/sheriffs) that haven’t got completely kicked out by bidens mandates. Organizations like american frontline doctors and others structured like it existed for a reason. And yes, I do know that the UN and other armies/mercenaries collabarating with them will come as well, but I highly doubt they will be able to fight against guerilla warfare tactics. In the battle, things will probably get worse before they get better initially, but that does NOT mean you should give up. I been to alot of alternative media sources and many people (both authors and commentators) simply want to kick the bucket and cave in to the globalists. Just now, I was reading a mercola article about switzerland being a cabal stronghold and many of the commentators say something along the lines of “Were’re doomed! There’s nothing we can do to stop this! Conservatives are useless morons that only delay the great reset. We can only pray that god comes and save us all!”. Look I really despise to be that guy judging people like this, but if you are all claming that the globalists have completely won and that conservatives are useless, I’m sorry but you are no better than the brainwashed leftists. By chating online that nothing can be saved, you are only showing weakness and give globalists more confidence to take over the world. This is honestly not the time to have this behavior, it will evitably drag us all down in apart of the liberty movement. In the end, while the world may never be the same again, there may finally be a point in time throughout history that people have targeted the globalists directly. As for now, keep prepping and never give up the will to fight back.

            Hey Daniel – it won’t let me respond to your message so hopefully you see this.

            I’m 24, so not too much older than you. I haven’t lost hope and am in the throes of prepping and am actively involved in my local community. I talk to whomever is willing to listen. I am more than willing to lay down my life for liberty, and will fight to preserve the freedoms I took for granted the majority of my life. Thomas Jefferson said it well: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”

            I apologize if my message was misinterpreted as I also become frustrated with the lack of hope displayed by quite a few conservatives. I DO have hope. I merely do recognize that there are so many of our generation that have been brainwashed which does make it easier for the globalists to try and implement their Great Reset agenda. It doesn’t mean they will win, but the battle will certainly be more difficult and may inevitably lead to Civil War. I do hope that is avoidable and that we will be able to rid of the tyrants, starting at the bottom and then upwards from there.

    OK, this debate has raged on long enough, it’s si very simple…
    If – and when – you decide to come for the GUNS, then it’s open season on anyone electing to participate. Period.
    I recently saw a bumper sticker near to where I’m domiciled that sums it up nicely in a tourist area;
    “If it’s TOURISTS season then why can’t we SHOOT them?”
    Biden’s attempt to politically capitalize on the Uvalde shootings is quite a ways beyond simply despicable…it’s fast becoming abundantly and plainly a non-concealed effort on the part of the whole WEF ‘Crony Club’ to make a last ditch stand at reducing Americans to the status of our poor de-fanged Canadian, Australian and British counterparts…who haven’t any remaining say-so in their “Lords and Serfs” existence.

    Disgusted AGAIN…JOG

  • Sir_vivor June 3, 2022 at 5:25 am

    One thing the elites don’t realize is that the OATH ALL members of the military took when joining has NO expiration date even though we did have an ETS date. I know many ex military that think the same way and I know that they and I have the line drawn.

    The government thinks they can take guns away but I can go a mile from my home and get what I want from so-called criminals and not have the gov know anything about it.

    Those who say the Bible says Thou shall not kill can be assured ot says nothing at all about knee-capping the fools that come with the intent.

  • Gauntlet33 June 3, 2022 at 9:33 am

    “First, if public schools removed their “gun free zone” status and allowed teachers to conceal carry, then Ramos likely would have been dead before harming a single child. Or, he would have at least faced opposition and been cornered.

    Second, if community militias still existed in the US as the Constitution demands, then parents could have organized a much faster response and walked right over any police that refused to go in and do what needed to be done. Parents are allowed to risk their lives for their children, and anyone that says otherwise should be ignored or trampled.”
    Brandon, Amen to your entire article and especially to these two points above. Your articles (and especially this one) should be required reading for Leftists.

  • JustOneGuy June 3, 2022 at 12:28 pm

    Here’s a link to relatively recent info on the NGSW;

    The anticipated chamber pressures (above 80K psi) preclude ever using thus ammo in virtually any other firearm even if same is chambered for it. Also, I can’t help but wonder just what the implication is for ‘throat wear’ just in front of the chamber. I don’t imagine that current metallurgy permits such to have any appreciable longevity.
    That said this change does imply that the Mil/Civ conveyor belt feeding Mil grade ammo into the civilian market is being curtailed.


  • Dennis June 3, 2022 at 2:49 pm

    Brandon, I see a civil war coming… Things are getting rapidly worse.
    A little bit of topic, but nevertheless as important as the second amendment.
    The REAL agenda behind the created food crisis

  • Mairin McLaughlin June 3, 2022 at 8:44 pm

    Is it probable that this is intentional in order to trigger a civil war? That the globalists want nation states to destroy their government so the UN can swoop in as the savior? It would explain blundering Biden’s alarming rhetoric that is for sure causing many liberty minded Americans to become furious. I surely am. What would be the breaking point for a civil war to ensue?

      It doesn’t matter if it’s intentional or not, they will lose all the same as long as we remain armed. A national ban of semi-auto firearms would be a sure way to kick off a civil war.

      • Mairin McLaughlin June 4, 2022 at 9:24 am

        Fair enough. On that note, going to go buy an AR-15.

  • Luke June 4, 2022 at 1:43 am

    I don’t think they will come for our guns JOG, at least not our LE or military doing it. People are too hardened now. Hell even the normies are realizing their fragile reality is shattering around them. They see it the gas prices and inflation.

    -Here’s what I suspect is coming:

    -—Lockdowns and no they have no chance of working UNLESS the next payload is highly virulent and infectious. Geert Vanden Bossche is literally the smartest man in the room. He doesn’t get into accusations or conspiracy but I will. These people he used to work with are murderers. They withheld early treatment drugs. They paid hospitals to follow the death protocol (intubation & Remdesivir). Last fall GVB predicted that the vaccines would ultimately assist the virus hurting the host. He was 100% on the money we would learn thanks to the Omicron strain. His latest prediction the virus will regroup based on all the evolutionary pressure we have placed on it with the vaccines. I think it’s probably sitting in a lab somewhere. Mother Nature or lab it matters not I suppose. So keep IVM on hand dammit should be part of any SHTF kit.
    —-We are seeing the start of what appears to be engineered food shortages. I’m sure everyone gets this. From fertilizer shortages to diesel. Hell the latest casualty was our largest egg farm burned. There’s just too many vectors of sabotage to be dismissed as coincidence. This will cause much chaos as Americans will start doing stupid shit waiting in a food line. Especially in the cities tho I am not confident food trucks will ever see the light of day to rural areas unless it’s to steal it from farmers.
    —-If my fist point comes to fruition and if GVB says it then I believe it to be so regardless of M Nature or a Lab than who will disarm us? Most of the military will be hunkering down too along with police forces as they took the jabs. Ok so I will let loose my imagination. I believe they will fly the Taliban over here to do it. They will be familiar with things like our MRAPS and Humvees. It dawned on me a couple weeks ago. I thought there’s no way they left all that shit behind on purpose; including our dogs. This is similar to the Ukraine as we want muscle to antagonize and threaten a potential enemy. Well Russia & China are too far, ditto for India. The only thing I could see feasible was Pakistan or some former Soviet Bloc country. And then I thought they’re gonna bring them Mother***** over here under blue helmets when the time is right. They will be the disarmament force perhaps. They would be brutal and make examples.

    —-I know I have a wild imagination. I only say this to make you think outside the box. I think it best to keep heads on a swivel. This is all speculation and if you can think of a country they would be a good proxy war for please tell me. I can’t think of anyone that would be more violent and unforgiving but it will never happen unless steps 1 & 2. So if you see mass lockdowns (mostly voluntary at this point) then get ready for what is coming next.

    I’m not military. Always loved it and felt bad for not joining. I suspect there’s got to be some anguish on your behalves after learning the truth. There certainly is on mine for believing in it. Just throwing out there what I see. I listen to money guys, Covid people on substack, and military guys to learn to survive. Jack of all trades and master of none. I try and bring it all together and paint a 3D picture. And this is what I see. I just don’t believe we left all that shit behind in Afghanistan by accident. That makes no sense.

    • JustOneGuy June 4, 2022 at 7:03 am

      Howdy Luke,
      To be sure, “thinking outside the box” is fast becoming our best defense. I mean, you just can’t make up some of the stuff we’ve been witnessing, can you?
      I’ve dwelt on the “lynch pin” of how – exactly – the WEF and it’s crony/subordinates actually intend to finalize things and several of the points you make being wholly valid lead me to believe that the only realistic method those gave to ‘Shock the System’ sufficient that they can step in and grasp the reins of power overtly would be the dissemination of a second, FAR more effective bio-weapon.
      But that that occurs there will be simply too much push-back for them to succeed. Food for thought. Thanks for your input!


      • Luke June 4, 2022 at 9:55 pm

        I was pretty drunk when I wrote that last night. But it has been dancing around my brain for a couple weeks. I agree, in fact if they say lockdown and wear your mask not even San Fran residents will fall into line. That’s why it will be necessary the next wave is very deadly. If that is the case people will freak out like 2020. After the bullshit we have seen nobody will. Here’s a GVB video for you. When I found him last fall I instinctively knew he was the smartest SOB on the planet in virology/immunology. Docs Malone, McCullough, Cole all take a knee to this guy. He won’t go down the rabbit hole of murder. But he probably has private thoughts. How could you not? He says it is coming from Mother Nature as we have put immense evolutionary pressure on the virus with the max vax campaign. But hell it could be sitting in a lab right now.

        –That’s the thing JOG I can not square the shit we have seen since 2020. I knew there was something really dark. I just didn’t know what it was. I think I do now and that’s a start. We must know our enemy. I don’t think we have much time left. Trying hard to allocate my resources appropriately…..Take care sir

        • Daniel V June 5, 2022 at 7:15 am

          Luke, this is not the 2000s or 90s anymore, all globalist institutions are right out there for everyone to see. Look at all the companies, organizations, and people that are supporting the great reset. Look at all the companies blackrock and vanguard have stakes in. Look who supports the imf digital currency bank. And lastly, all the central bankers and rich family bloodlines such as the rotchschilds and rockefellers.
          There is a even earlier article that explained what will happened when the covid 19 plandemic happened. Yes the video has been taken down (not suprised, youtube hates truth) but the info is still there. Read it while you still can.

    • NICK June 4, 2022 at 8:47 pm

      Excellent points all. IMO, 90% of the nefarious things happening since March 2020 are not coincidental. 9/11 and the Patriot Act and TSA and DHS should have been a wake up call for more folks than what it was, but I’ll be damned if many of us are not sleeping anymore! The only thing on paper keeping us from suffering the fate of the Chinese or Australians is our 2A. How things play out from here are not crystal clear, but we do know that ‘they’ are coming for ‘us’.

  • Gotheart June 5, 2022 at 10:30 am

    I appreciate your passionate comments. 👍Sincerely, Gotheart.

  • Daniel V June 9, 2022 at 8:40 am

    UPDATE: Just in, the white house is setting up the bill the raise the legal age to buy a rifle at age 21! I believe at this point, the civil war WILL come.
