"11 Steps to Fascism"

I found this picture on Facebook.  The person who posted the picture said "Almost there".  I think he is being overly optimistic.  All the steps have obviously been taken, with the possible exception of the final step: "Disarm the citizen".

I think all the steps have been taken.  We are there.

Most citizens are already effectively disarmed. Otherwise they would NEVER comply with "gun free zones" ("slaughter houses") or any other anti-gun "laws". They would never apply for permits, nor go through NICS screenings. They wouldn't bother getting permission to own and to carry fully-automatic firearms, or sawed-off shotguns, or silencers.

They beg for permission to exercise a fundamental human right, and wait 'til the "laws" are changed to do so. They have been brainwashed into believing that "laws" are legitimate, when they are not. Screw that.


The State versus the 2nd Amendment

Have you ever noticed that people arrested on gun charges are not allowed to argue their innocence based upon the Second Amendment?  In other words, they are not allowed to use the fact that the Second Amendment makes all gun "laws" illegal as part of their defense.

Why might that be?

The reason is very simple: The State knows they'd lose. They realize they don't have a leg to stand on.

Given the "authority" to rule you, a werewolf wouldn't allow you to use a silver bullet, either.  A vampire would forbid garlic, sunlight, crosses, and wooden stakes.  A rapist would never permit you to use a gun to fend him off, and the US government will never allow one of its victims to point out that the Constitution makes it a serious crime to advocate, pass, or enforce ANY anti-gun "law", no matter how "trivial".

Shall NOT be infringed!

So, when forbidden- by your attacker- to use the one tool that could kill him in one simple stroke, what do you do?  You certainly don't claim that this makes him right.  You point out that this is because he knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is dead wrong.  He knows he is the bad guy, and he can't win unless he rigs the "game".

All legitimacy is lost.
