Medical Marijuana a Backdoor to Gun Confiscation
The awakened man should have raised an eyebrow when state governments suddenly started making moves to legalize marijuana. Why would a revenue and power hungry government cede ground in the highly profitable (for the police state establishment and prison-industrial complex) Drug War in support of individual liberty when the U.S. has a track record of stripping freedom at every turn?
Since 2001, the U.S. has practically gutted the Bill of Rights with the Patriot Act, NDAA, and all sorts of other acts with clever acronyms passed by Congress. What an unusual move, ending a prohibition. Many suspected something was afoot. Alas, now we know what the calculation was. Medical marijuana recipients are now having their guns forcibly confiscated. From state propaganda outlet NBC News:
As gun-loving Pennsylvania becomes the latest state to operate a medical marijuana program, with the first dispensary on track to begin sales next month, authorities are warning patients that federal law bars marijuana users from having guns or ammunition.
Want to ease the pain of living in this miserable society with medical marijuana? Have a terminal illness and medical marijuana helps ease the pain? That’s fine. Police State USA will be coming to seize your guns. Insert your typical tough-talking, full of shit DA sound bite:
“They’re going to have to make a choice,” said John T. Adams, president of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association. “They can have their guns or their marijuana, but not both.”
What does one victim of these tyrannical gun control measures say? Phil Gruver, Pennsylvania resident and owner of a (laughable) .22 caliber rifle and handgun told interviewers:
“It’s a violation of my Second Amendment rights,” Gruver said. “I don’t know of any time anyone’s been using marijuana and going out and committing acts of violence with a gun. Most of the time they just sit on their couch and eat pizza.”
I never knew a violent pothead, either.
Nonetheless, a digital foundation for tracking citizens’ lives is being laid. A registry mandated by lawmakers now tracks people who have a medical marijuana card. The American police state now uses the registry to strip Second Amendment rights.
More than 800,000 guns are sold or transferred in Pennsylvania annually, and more than 10,000 people in the state have signed up for medical marijuana. The registry change on Friday makes it much less likely the state’s medical marijuana users will be flagged when going through a federal gun sales background check.
Oh, and the courts won’t protect your rights.
An appeals court in San Francisco, rejecting a challenge on Second Amendment grounds, said in 2016 that Congress reasonably concluded marijuana and other drugs raise the risk of unpredictable behavior.
Don’t be lulled into thinking these gun confiscation moves are going to stop with medical marijuana. The slide into tyranny is continuing with calls for stripping gun rights for those the state deems mentally incapable of owning guns. No doubt, it won’t be long before any written or spoken resistance to the NWO agenda will be deemed rantings of a crazy person and thugs in blue sent to your door to beat you down and seize your weapons.
Even domestic abuse is now being used as a pretext to seize guns. All it takes for you to lose your gun rights is one angry Anglobitch making up a fake story about how you threatened her, and the police will be knocking at your door demanding you hand over your weapons.
Left-leaning Hawaii has also been seizing guns. Expect this cancer to spread to other states soon. Gun grabbing, intended to render the populace beholden to and defenseless against a tyrannical government is all part of the clandestine American Socialist Revolution, in which Socialism and Communism are being sneaked in under the noses of the average barrel-bellied, clueless American. You know, the average slob who represents a real-world version of the chair moisteners found in the fictional dystopia of Idiocracy.
Those who fled Communism know totalitarianism is coming here because they’ve seen it all before, such as one Chinese immigrant John Stossel recently interviewed. Personally, I continue to be amazed at how docile the sheeplike American populace is as they’re turned into serfs one straw on the camel’s back at a time. What part of “shall not be infringed” don’t our overlords understand? And why are Americans so quiet as every right they ever had or thought of having is slowly taken away?
