History is rife with examples of gun confiscations. This article will analyze America’s history of mass gun grabs and examine how they are likely to occur in the future.
A distinguished member of the U.S. Supreme Court gave a sobering reminder of how history can and likely will repeat itself when the conditions are right.

Our government is nearly 17 trillion dollars in debt (put another way, 1 trillion is a million million or a thousand billion) and yet Obama and other representatives of the military industrial complex (that Eisenhower warned us about) want to get involved in yet another war with a foreign country that never attacked us or threatened our freedom in any way. Our government’s obsession of meddling in the affairs of other nations rarely ends well, and though the arms industry may profit from unnecessary wars, these foreign conflicts do not benefit our country as a whole — especially not the taxpayers. Quick to assume the moral high ground, the U.S. government depends on citizens’ foreign policy amnesia regarding its own use of chemical weapons. The only thing more maddening than America’s insistence to go to war, is its hypocrisy in doing so.
