Gun grabbing Billionaires want to disarm Americans
Thousands of Washington State’s citizens held a rally on Saturday, Dec. 13, to demonstrate their Second Amendment rights despite a controversial new gun law. An estimated 4,000 civilian gun owners rallied at their state’s capital city of Olympia to show their opposition to Initiative 594, the latest gun control law which is one of the most restrictive in the nation. Critics say it’s just one step closer to the left’s ultimate goal: disarming all American citizens.
The participants in the rally showed more respect and decorum than the anti-police marches and riots that garnered support from politicians, including President Barack Obama, and the members of America’s corrupt news media, according to former prosecuting attorney for Maricopa County, Arizona, Rachel Alexander, a friend of this NewsWithViews.com reporter.
The thousands of gun owners had one message for elected officials, U.S. courts, and the big-money supporters of gun control measures: They’re opposed to an almost 20-page confusing, poorly written unconstitutional gun law that was bankrolled by billionaires who used propaganda and lies to get their way.
Law-abiding gun owners from across the state found themselves involved in the largest felony civil disobedience rally in the nation’s history, and they were felons only because anti-gunners pushed through a law that violates the nation’s foundational law – the U.S. Constitution. During the event dubbed “I Will Not Comply,” there were no burning police cars, stores weren’t looted and no one screamed epithets at police officers assigned to the “control” the rally. In fact, the police appeared to support the gun owners and refused to enforce I-594.
The new gun law is the brainchild of three of America’s wealthiest men: billionaires Bill Gates, Steve Balmer and New York City’s former mayor, Michael Bloomberg, who upon leaving office has devoted his life to disarming his fellow citizens who paid his salary. Critics of their activities and I-594 say these men were able to not only “buy” the politicians who pushed for their gun restrictions, but they also paid for a propaganda campaign aimed at brainwashing voters into believing such a law benefited them.
The initiative passed despite the opposition of out-funded gun owners and thousands of law enforcement officers who support the Second Amendment and know that issue of fighting crime and the goal of disarming citizens have nothing to do with one another.
The rally’s organizer, Gavin Seim, described the goal of the event to the members of the news media who bothered to cover the protest. “This isn’t just a protest. We are here to openly violate the law,” as the attendees publicly transferred their guns to each other in violation of I-591’s background check provisions, and some even bought and sold guns just a few feet away from law enforcement. A fire pit blazed throughout the rally, and at the conclusion, gun owners lined up to burn their concealed weapons permits. A petition was circulated affirming gun owners’ refusal to follow I-594, which ended with, “We pledge our blood. We will not comply.”
Before the beginning of the protest, a public letter was sent out from the sheriff-elect Rob Snaza and country prosecutor Jonathan Meyer, both from of Lewis County, announcing that they would not arrest and prosecute people who inadvertently violate the background check law. “We wanted to make sure that the citizens of Lewis County knew that we weren’t looking to make criminals out of ordinary citizens,” Meyer said.
Snaza and Meyer were the first elected law enforcement officials to publicly renounce I-594. They say the law is too over-reaching. They sent out their message because they felt there was too much confusion about I-594 and to make it “crystal clear” what they will do and what they won’t do.
Besides Snaza and Meyer, Bellevue Sheriff’s Office’s Sgt. Scott Brennan also chimed in, telling reporters, “As a law enforcement officer, I know this is completely un-enforceable. Unless a cop is hiding in your living room when you make the sale, gift or loan, no one will ever know it happened and it won’t help solve the problem. Sadly, both sides have wasted multi-millions of dollars on this un-workable Initiative.”
“If this money had been put into mental health efforts or awareness and firearms safety training for parents and families, it might have produced the desired results. Don’t waste more funding, Vote No on I-594 and concentrate on helping people in crisis,” the 30-year veteran said.
“This is practically unheard of in the modern era; not only [did] 5,500 people deliberately violate the law through civil disobedience, but [they violated] felony gun laws. Washington is one of few remaining blue states that has remained friendly to gun owners, and so gun owners are furious that a handful of billionaires were able to come in and buy the election, contributing about half the $10 million poured into the race to support I-594, almost 10 times as much as the opposition. Unsuccessful at getting the legislature to pass the law, gun control proponents resorted to billionaires to push it through instead as an initiative. Their money provided the resources to afford to run continuous misleading ads on TV,” said the event’s organizer, Gavin Seim.
