Just a “Shotgun” – this is how it happens…. A MUST READ E-MAIL

This is how it’s done…….Don’t let it happen  here.
This is what you’ll get with LIBERAL LEADERS!
Just a shotgun
Those who want to make drastic changes in our rights
never start off big, it’s always just seemingly
small, harmless, incremental changes that help some small
group.  No one started the ball rolling by   saying we
want to ban cigarettes even in a private home, they just
said we want a smoke free area.  The gays didn’t
start off by saying they wanted marriage legalized for
same sex, they started by saying they just wanted to be
accepted.  Most of us realize that the change   will
start with automatic weapons and keep adding one   “just”
after another.

Just a Shotgun!
You’re sound asleep
when you hear a thump outside your bedroom door.

Half-awake, and nearly paralyzed with
fear,you hear muffled whispers.

At least two people have broken
into your house and are moving your way.

With your heart pumping, you reach
down beside your bed and pick up your shotgun.

You rack a shell into the chamber, then
inch toward the door and open it.

In the darkness, you make out two shadows.

One holds something that looks like a crowbar.

When the intruder brandishes it as if to
strike, you raise the shotgun and fire.

The blast knocks both thugs to the floor.

One writhes and screams while the
second man crawls to the front door and lurches

As you pick up the telephone to
call police, you know you’re in trouble.

In your country, most guns were outlawed
years before,  and the few that are privately
owned are so stringently regulated as to make
them useless..

Yours was never registered.

Police arrive and inform you that the second burglar has   died.

They arrest you for First Degree Murder and Illegal
Possession of a Firearm.

When you talk
to your attorney, he tells you not to worry:
authorities will probably plea the case down to

“What kind of sentence
will I get?” you ask.

“Only ten-to-twelve years,” he replies, as if that’s

“Behave yourself, and you’ll be out in seven.”

The next day, the shooting is the lead story in
the local newspaper. Somehow, you’re
portrayed as an eccentric vigilante while the
two men you shot are represented as choirboys.

Their friends and relatives can’t find
an unkind word to say about them..

Buried deep down in the  article,
authorities acknowledge that both “victims” have
been arrested numerous times.

But the next day’s headline says it all:

“Lovable Rogue Son Didn’t Deserve to Die.”

The thieves have been transformed from
career criminals into Robin Hood-type

As the days wear on, the story takes wings.

The national media picks it up, then the
international media .

The surviving burglar has become a folk hero.

Your attorney says the thief is
preparing to sue you, and he’ll probably win.

The media publishes reports
that your home has been burglarized several
times in the past and that you’ve been critical
of local police for their lack of effort in
apprehending the suspects.

After the last break-in, you told your  neighbor   that you
would be prepared next time.

The District Attorney uses this to allege that you
were lying in wait for the burglars.

A few months later, you go to trial.

The charges haven’t been reduced, as your lawyer had
so confidently predicted.

When you take the stand, your anger at the injustice of   it all
works against you..

Prosecutors paint a
picture of you as a mean, vengeful man.

It doesn’t take long for the jury to
convict you of all charges.

The judge sentences you to life in prison.

This case really happened.

On August 22, 1999, Tony Martin of Emneth, Norfolk ,   England ,
killed one burglar and wounded a second.

In April, 2000, he was convicted and is
now serving a life term…

How did it become a crime to defend one’s own life in the
once great British Empire ?

It started with the Pistols  Act of 1903.

This seemingly
reasonable law forbade selling pistols to minors
or felons and established that handgun sales
were to be made only to those who had a license.

The Firearms Act of 1920 expanded licensing to
include not only handguns but all firearms
except shotguns..

Later laws passed in 1953 and 1967 outlawed the carrying
of any weapon by private citizens and mandated
the registration of all shotguns.

Momentum for total handgun
confiscation began in earnest after the
Hungerfordmass shooting in 1987.

Michael Ryan, a mentally disturbed man with a
Kalashnikov rifle, walked down the streets
shooting everyone he saw.

When the smoke cleared, 17 people were dead.

The British
public, already de-sensitized by eighty years of
“gun control”, demanded even tougher
(The seizure
of all privately owned handguns was the
objective even though Ryan used
a rifle.)

Nine years later, at Dunblane ,
Scotland , Thomas Hamilton used a semi-automatic
weapon to murder 16 children and a teacher at a
public school.

For many years, the media
had portrayed all gun owners as mentally
unstable, or worse, criminals.
Now the press had a real kook with
which to beat up law-abiding gun owners.
Day after day, week after week, the
media gave up all pretense
of objectivity and demanded a total ban on all
The Dunblane Inquiry , a few months later,
sealed the fate of the few sidearms still owned
by private citizens.

the years in which the British government
incrementally took away most gun  rights, the
notion that a citizen had the right to armed
self-defense came to be seen as vigilantism.

Authorities refused to grant gun licenses to
people who were threatened, claiming that
self-defense was no longer considered a reason
to own a gun.
Citizens who shot burglars or robbers or rapists were   charged
while the real criminals were released.

Indeed, after the Martin
shooting, a police spokesman was quoted as
“We cannot have people take the law
into their own hands.”

All of Martin’s neighbors had been robbed numerous times,

and several elderly people were severely
injured in beatings by young thugs who had no
fear of the consequences.
Martin himself, a collector of antiques, had seen most of   his
collection trashed or stolen by burglars.

When the Dunblane Inquiry
ended, citizens who owned handguns were given
three months to turn them over to  local

Being good British subjects,
most people obeyed the law.
The few who didn’t were visited by police and threatened
with ten-year prison sentences if they didn’t

Police later bragged that they’d
taken nearly 200,000 handguns from private

How did the authorities know who had handguns?
The guns had been registered and licensed.
Kind of like cars.
Sound familiar?


“…It does not require a majority to prevail, but
rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set
brush fires in people’s minds..”

If you think this is important, please forward to
everyone you know.

You had better wake up, because Obama is doing this very
same thing, over here,  if he can get it done.
The UN Small Arms Treaty that Hilary is  negotiating   would
take away our 2nd Amendment rights.

And there are stupid people in congress and on the
street that will go right along with him.

because they knew that Most of the citizens were
The future of our country, the direction that we go as a
people, whether we move ahead to meet the challenges
of the future or slide back into the irresponsible
policies of the past, will be determined by those
who get involved.” – Ronald Reagan
