This will not be "It"...
I have no crystal ball. But I do not think this will be the Mao Moment (the label I use for that moment when the Executive drops all pretense and moves for the throat).
This ain't that moment.
President Obama is a guy who wants to always do bigger and better. You have to understand his gargantuan Ego to understand where he will go, why and when. He'd never be happy with merely re-instating the AWB. He hasn't put his personal mark on it, AWB is 'been there, done that', so it is of no value to his Ego. President Obama wants to be the guy in history books known for killing 2A entirely.
He can't get there from Connecticut.
I do expect much bellicose posturing, but I really don't think President Obama's plan for killing 2A is mature enough yet, so I do not think he'll try to pull that trigger - sorry for the pun. He may give his base a few scraps, like banning hi-caps and some other easy ones. But I simply do not think he is ready - yet - to declare all production stop at S&W or Ruger, or that all ARs are now banned, or that gun shops may no longer sell to the public. That's his goal, to be sure, but this isn't his path, I think.
Yes, this will be news for a few cycles. Yes, the Marxists will try to get something, but I think the Hard Left will be sorely disappointed by the President, because I do not think he's willing or ready to reach that far - yet. Look for "Mental Health" to be the big one that slips in the matrix out of Connecticut. I think that is where he will look for a "Victory" on this one. Bi-polar? No 2A for you. Ever take a sleeping pill? No 2A for you.
He'll reach and expand the scope of "Prohibited Persons" more than he'll worry about the mechanics of the firearms.
I could be wrong. That almost happened once - scared the hell out of me. ;)
Right now the Redoubt Project and the firearms company are staying their respective courses. (Speed is accelerating on the Redoubt). So if you want your place in the Redoubt, please go now and do a proper application. Here's the link.
If I am wrong and Rule of Law is totally abandoned, here's the deal: If you are a Founder, you will get directions to the Redoubt location by back channels when necessary.
If you have properly applied to the Redoubt (which means you have filled out the application and submitted the application fee) then you will also receive exact location of the Redoubt when the time is right so you can meet us there.
At the moment, the Redoubt Beachhead is nothing but remote, undeveloped high mountains. If we all decide we need to get out of Dodge and meet up there, bring your gear to stay warm and dry.
We'll see what happens, of course. But this isn't his Mao Moment. He's not ready to go for all of the chips - yet.
So, breathe and carry on, Patriots. But you'd better be working on those preps. This ain't no f'n game. Buses and cattle cars are real. Ditches are real. And if you read THIS blog, you are already assigned to one of those ditches. YOU are the Bad People to the Marxists, and you'd better understand they will, one day, try to kill us by the millions.
