Medical Marijuana a Backdoor to Gun Confiscation

marijuana-3065621_1280

Marijuana legalization is intended to kick off a program of gun confiscation – already happening in some states

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.

A marijuana card is actually a gun confiscation card as PA resident Phil Gruver is finding out

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?

  • The Angry Outernationalist

    Remember, in a dysfunctional relationship, the first party that can medicalise the other party wins.

    Sometimes the dysfunctional relationship isn’t with another human being, it’s with the government.

    Some bureaucrats deem John Q. Public (US Army, Retired) to be a potential menace in his old age, so what do they do? They get him declared non compos mentis and unfit to own firearms.

    You see, they know what’s better for you, and legal scholars have repeatedly made the case for protection of the people as being a higher good than protection of your individual civil rights.

    Which of course means that you don’t really have any civil rights, push comes to shove (or shove comes to being beaten with truncheons) — after all, are you really a “defender of your home” or simply a deranged criminal who shoots anyone who breaks into your dwelling?

    Before you protest too much, this actually happened in London this week past. (And I’ve been in Catford SE6, it least produced Spike Milligan — you could easily do worse in London, like being stuck in E8.)

    The problem with busy-body culture is that the busy-bodies have time to get their enemies declared a menace to the public, whereas the proper solution would tend to be to go the other way with that call …

  • BTW, I think that ALL drugs should be legalized. One, prohibition does not work; it only increases crime. Two, thanks to the drug war, we’ve lost a LOT of rights. Three, alcohol kills more people than the rest of the drugs combined! Why is alcohol, a mind altering substance, kosher, while other drugs (i.e. mind altering substances) not? I never caught the logic behind that one! Finally, the gov’t could tax drugs the same as they do alcohol, so they could still make money off drugs.

    I can tell you a personal story from my Navy days. I was stationed on the East Coast, and we did drug ops in the Caribbean. We made a 12 ton bust, and we made the papers in our city; we were front page news! A short time later, another ship made a 100 ton bust, and we were quickly forgotten. The second load was more than EIGHT TIMES GREATER, and that’s the key. What’s more, the Navy, Coast Guard, Customs, et al, only catch a fraction of the loads coming in…

  • Rel,

    You hit it out of the park, as usual. That’s why I’m a REGULAR reader of TNMM!

    That said, I would like to add something, a point I’ve made before: thanks to the background checks required to purchase a gun, the Second Amendment has ALREADY been gutted. How so? What is the background check? What happens when one is done at the gun shop? The gun salesman calls a number. At the other end of the phone is an anonymous gov’t bureaucrat who pulls your name up on a database. Depending on what comes up, he tells the gun salesman yes, you can buy the gun, or no, you cannot. Isn’t that seeking permission? If you have to seek permission to do something, do you have the right to do that something? Of course, the answer is no.

    Let me come at this from another angle. Do you remember what you read in your driver’s manual when you got your driver’s license from DMV? Do they not say that driving is a PRIVILEGE, and not a right? How do they confer this privilege? Do they not use the license to do this? That begs the question: what is a license? Black’s Law Dictionary says the following: In the law of contracts. A permission, accorded by a competent authority, conferring the right to do some act which without such authorization would be illegal, or would be a trespass or a tort. Ergo, thanks to the background check, gun ownership has become a privilege, NOT a right. When I hear gun owners talking about their Second Amendment rights, I want to scream! What rights do you have, since the background check GUTTED The Second Amendment? What RIGHT do you have, since gun ownership is now a PRIVILEGE? Care to answer that? How people miss this seemingly obvious point escapes me…

  • Freedom- what freedom would that be ??

    It “DEFINITELY” causes oxidative damage/accelerated telomere attrition,………….. neurons too ????. AGHHHHHHH .

    Frightening and highly arguable. It sounds like “Settled science”……………..But thanks for the laugh.

    • Let me guess, you`re an avid smoker:) Fine by me if that`s the case. That`s the freedom I`m talking about. I don`t mind other people making their own choices, even though I (an objective research) indicate it`s a very bad move. If you don`t have the freedom to do or say things that other`s might dislike, you have no freedom at all.

      Very few things are ever settled science. You have to take all the data into account, and combine that with background knowledge and logic/reason. But there is good data out there; https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2516340/

      “The risk of lung cancer increased 8% (95% CI 2% to 15%) for each joint-year of cannabis smoking, after adjustment for confounding variables including cigarette smoking”

      Also, I am a molecular biologist. An even though I detest credentialism, cancer and telomere biology is sort of what I do, so I have some knowledge about it at least. But you`re right in that a word as definitely rarely pops up in scientific discourse. But on an online forum things are not as formal.

    It is hard to understand how opponents to the Second Amendment can argue against something so clearly worded. At the time it was written, all were aware that the Revolution started with a gun grab at Lexington, Massachusetts.

  • Oh, I forgot to mention that you can`t own a gun and smoke marijuana, but of course you can own a gun while being stuffed full of inhibition removing pharmaceuticals like SSRI`s. Remember a certain Stephen Paddock.

  • Or it could be that they want a sedated and servile population, and this is yet another way to achieve this goal? Don`t get me wrong, I`m as Laissez faire as they come, but smoking marijuana on the regular is not a bright move. It definitely causes oxidative damage/accelerated telomere attrition and thereby cancer, and also damages neurons in the same manner, and well…basically the whole organism. (With long term use of course.) But as I said, I would not want to ban it, or anything else that is objectively unhealthy. Freedom is more important!
