“We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers.” Those are not the words of a smarmy college kid with an Obama 2016 bumper sticker on his car, or even the prognostication of an overzealous police chief the very gun-unfriendly state of Massachusetts. Pray For US has learned that those are the chilling words of an active duty Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army, speaking to the law abiding gun owners of America. Lt. Col. Robert Bateman’s tyrannical words were written in an article published in Esquire magazine on December 3, 2013.
While the Obama regime is drumming faithful patriotic Christians out of the military for voicing their personal opinions on one man-one woman marriage, Lt. Col. Bateman and his cohorts are free to say anything they want, without any fear of repercussions. When a die-hard communist (more on this in a moment) like Lt. Col. Bateman speaks of his intentions with such candor, we should take him at his word.
And his words are truly chilling to anyone who appreciates the sacred right to keep and bear arms.
Bateman starts off his article in Esquire by boasting that it is his job to kill people. He then derides the “conservative” members of the US Supreme Court for having the audacity to interpret the Second Amendment in the way that the Founding Fathers intended:
‘Five of the nine members of the Supreme Court agreed that the part in the Second Amendment which talks about “A Well Regulated Militia, Being Necessary To The Security Of A Free State…” did not matter. In other words, they flunked basic high school history.’
Having insulted the intelligence and credentials of the US Supreme Court Justices, Bateman then asserts his own superior intelligence and lays out his tyrannical plan to confiscate all firearms in America. Here is his plan:
1. The only guns permitted will be the following:
- a. Smooth-bore or Rifled muzzle-loading black powder muskets. No 7-11 in history has been held up with one of these.
- b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.
- c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no *expletive* reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.
The Second Amendment was not written to protect the rights of deer hunters. It was written to protect the ability of patriots to hunt a more slimy and dangerous prey, the Tyrannus communistus. But we digress.
Lt. Col. Bateman continues:
2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them. (Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.)
“Hopefully of natural causes,” Mr. Bateman? What happens if we don’t cooperate by dying of natural causes? Presumably, Lt. Col. Bateman and his fellow Obama storm-troopers will be showing up at our doorsteps to help us along.
Unless we force Congress to intervene, tyrants like this will be the only type of person left in the US military. This endangers all of us! Please send FaxGrams to the House and Senate Armed Services Committees today and urge them to put a stop to Obama’s military purge and coup against America!
And here is the remainder of Bateman’s tyrannical screed:
3. Police departments are no longer allowed to sell or auction weapons used in crimes after the cases have been closed. (That will piss off some cops, since they really need this money. But you know what they need more? Less violence and death. By continuing the process of weapon recirculation, they are only making their jobs — or the jobs of some other cops — harder.)
4. We will submit a new tax on ammunition. In the first two years it will be 400 percent of the current retail cost of that type of ammunition. (Exemptions for the ammo used by the approved weapons.) Thereafter it will increase by 20 percent per year.
5. We will initiate a nationwide “buy-back” program, effective immediately, with the payouts coming from the DoD budget. This buy-back program will start purchasing weapons at 200 percent of their face value the first year, 150 percent the second year, 100 percent the third year. Thereafter there will be a 10 year pause, at which point the guns can be sold to the government at 10 percent of their value for the next 50 years.
6. The major gun manufactures of the United States, less those who create weapons for the federal government and the armed forces, will be bought out by the United States of America, for our own damned good.
Point 6, we would note, is taken directly from Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto: “Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State” and so on.
Bateman is the type of officer who is allowed to remain in Obama’s military. Again, Bateman’s article originally appeared in Esquire magazine, which you can read in full here.
Christian officers, on the other hand, are being drummed out of the military on an almost daily basis, because they are opposed to the agenda of Lt. Col. Bateman and his commander-in-chief, Barack Obama.
Unless we take action, Obama will succeed in his efforts to turn the US military into a force of oppression and evil. Please CLICK HERE to take action today and help Pray For US stop Obama’s purge of the military.
