Joe Biden has been proclaimed the president-elect, per some in the mainstream media. Take that for what it’s worth. This leaves gun owners in a very precarious position.
What happens now?
In the past couple of days, I have talked with several trusted, key people. People from government, the Trump campaign, the NRA-ILA, and other leaders in the gun rights movement. They have each offered unique insights, both public and private, into what they expect will happen and how we can best prepare.
In a nutshell for right now: have faith and give the system an opportunity to do the right thing. Yes, the Deep State is real and well entrenched. However, there are lots of good people in key positions who may well step up and do the right thing.
For an in-depth look at where we’re at and where we are likely to be in the coming months both here in Illinois and nationally, come on out to the Guns Save Life meeting in Rantoul at the Knights of Columbus on Tuesday, November 10th. I will give an outlook presentation as the main speaker. The meeting program begins at 7pm. No food will be served though, so eat at home before coming out or pick something up and eat it while driving.
Also, GSL will meet on Thursday, November 12th in Charleston, IL at the Unique Banquet Center. GOOD FOOD WILL BE SERVED. Dinner and conversation start at or before 6pm. The program begins at 7pm. If there is no speaker program, I may share the outlook presentation there as well.
One word of caution: We all know that basically three-quarters of Americans believed that Civil War was a possibility, especially after the lawlessness we all saw this past summer.
Like many of our GSL members (and 75% of everyone else), I count myself in that category.
Right now though, we aren’t in a civil war and it’s not likely to start by January 20, 2021. At the same time, I think it’s fair to say that the nation took one big step closer to Civil War 2.0 with the election fraud that permeated these Democrat-run big cities.
Like many Americans, I watched with both disbelief and cold anger at these claims that 136,000 Biden votes are “found” in the dead of night in Michigan and just coincidentally, not a single vote was found for President Trump. Along with hundreds of thousands of other “found” votes in other cities, usually in the dead of night or after the “counters” expelled Republican observers.
I shake my head reading about how in Detroit, votes came in from folks born well before the American Civil War. Or the 93%+ voter turnout in Wisconsin. I wonder how in Milwaukee where a dozen or more precincts had turnout over 100% but we’ve got to count every vote according to Joe Biden and company. Or in other cities or states where counting is suspended.
The caution… Don’t be talking about overthrowing an illegitimate government or killing people like kooky Keith Olberman does of late. You’ll sound as loopy and loony as Mr. Jock Sniffer himself. Unlike Olberman, you don’t enjoy the protection of the coming from the elite class.
Joe Biden may well become our next President, and in short order, Kamala Harris will take over. Between the two of them, they’re going to come after guns but their abilities will be limited by both the US Senate (hopefully in the short term) and the US Supreme Court in the longer term. They won’t have carte blanche to do what they want.
