If the feds keep arbitrarily “picking and choosing” which laws they wish to enforce, the electorate is left with no other option but the same thing: picking and choosing which laws THEY wish to obey. Or not.

The Ares Armor raid by BATFE on March 15th, Saturday, in National City, Fornicalia.
Though BATFE stacks up for forced entry, you can clearly see the disinterest in the real cop on the scene — the solitary National City police officer who must respond every day for at least 10 hours per shift to actual calls for service — unlike the BATFE, perfumed princesses. As with the bulk of federal law enforcement, they have no case load, great toys, fabulous funding and all day to digest their lunch..
In the above video, you can hear the alarm activating because of the store breach. The single NCPD officer is providing nothing more than potential external threat protection though — at one officer — the perceived threat is minimal at best because, on a weekend day, many more officers would be present if necessary. And they have not responded in kind to perceived “threat.”
At least NPD and BATFE are sufficiently perspicacious to not arrest those who wish to video or photograph, in public, unlike some other LE agencies throughout the US — who have learned those lessons the hard way via large compensations paid against risk management.
Here, in this video, the BATFE cracks the Ares Armor safe inside the business.
And with that, goes much detailed information from private citizens to the US government simply because it deigns it can collect same.
Listen closely to the narrative comments made behind the video directly above. Highly interesting, I submit.
And for those of you who wish to know what an unarmed society yields, I proffer this for your consideration due to the loving embrace of Islam:
Last week Ares Armor, a company that sells firearms parts in San Diego, obtained a restraining order against the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The restraining order was approved by Federal Judge Janis L. Sammartino and a federal raid of the business was prevented. ATF planned on raiding the company in order to gain access to a list containing more than 5,000 customer names. The customers on the list had purchased a plastic or polymer lower receiver from EP Armory, a part that is used to build rifles legally at home. The metal version of the receiver is legal due to being stamped with a serial number.
An unarmed nation finds itself abjectly controlled by those in power whose potentiality may overwhelm their rationality, balance, logic and proportion. Little, peaceful Sweden has one of the highest gun ownership rates on the planet and one can clearly see that, despite this fact, the country has not dissolved or erupted into mass chaos and turbulence.
Just what does the possession of firearms in the hands of taxpaying American citizens accomplish?
Oh yes. It keeps you from becoming a victim. A prole. A groundling. A serf. It keeps you free.

A federal raid by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives on a San Diego gun-parts store chain has prompted criticism that the primary purpose of the operation was to collect the names and addresses of customers.
Despite a temporary restraining order, ATF agents obtained a search warrant and raided four Ares Armor stores over the weekend, according to San Diego’s KSWB-TV.
What the agents wanted were the stores’ computers, he wrote.
The ATF, which went to a judge privately to obtain the warrant, said it was investigating alleged violations of federal firearms laws that stemmed from the sale of a new plastic version of the 80 percent lowers of AR-15 rifles.
Building a rifle with specific versions of the 80 percent receivers is legal, the TV report explained. But the ATF said the polymer lower receiver appears to be manufactured differently with two parts, making them a firearm and illegal to sell.
But perhaps this is the crux of the biscuit:
The idea of collecting names and addresses of gun owners has been a fear of Second Amendment supporters since President Obama took office in 2009. They cite a historic pattern of governments that intend to confiscate guns establishing gun registration as a first step, to identify the owners.
Further, your loving federal government forcing you to become a felon in your own nation, because you stupidly cling to your ridiculous “gawd” and “gunz”? Perish the thought!
Except when the threat becomes reality:
In Connecticut, a law recently was passed requiring owners of certain firearms to submit their names, addresses and fingerprints. Hundreds of thousands refused, and now the state is faced with the possibility of having a large segment of its working population classified as felons. A similar issue is developing in New York state.
This, of course, on the heels of the BATFE’s operation Fast and Furious — which resulted in the killing of USBP Agent Brian Terry — by a weapon that was allowed to flow into Mexico specifically by the BATFE. The man who personally killed Brian Terry — is he here?
One bottom line?
In the San Diego case, the local Fox affiliate reported customers were getting nervous.
“I’m on that list,” one said, “and I’m waiting for the knock on the door to tell me they are here to remove my Second Amendment rights.”
That could never happen here, though.
From the NYTimes.com:
by David Carr, The Media Equation
There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didn’t seem to like America very much — and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for “Piers Morgan Live” hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC.
It’s been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate — the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt — and a CNN audience that is intrinsically provincial. After all, the people who tune into a cable news network are, by their nature, deeply interested in America.
Perhaps a brief interjection: actual listening Americans deplored being lectured-to by a stunningly ineffectual media cunt who wouldn’t know how to defend himself in a game of tag. Because, after all, that United Kingdom — they’re certainly the epitome of national power and stolid sovereignty, are they not?
Yes. They are not.
“Look, I am a British guy debating American cultural issues, including guns, which has been very polarizing, and there is no doubt that there are many in the audience who are tired of me banging on about it,” he said. “That’s run its course and Jeff and I have been talking for some time about different ways of using me.”
Yes, I know, it’s that pesky Second Amendment we stupid Yankees seem to revere. Clinging to our “small town” guns and religion. But isn’t it odd that you shepherd’s-pie-eating Brits seem to surround yourselves with more and more guns held by government officials than at any other point in your history? And still you’re losing your culture and your significance and your own sovereignty day by bleeding day?
Perhaps a bit of accuracy is called for:
Mr. Morgan’s approach to gun regulation was more akin to King George III, peering down his nose at the unruly colonies and wondering how to bring the savages to heel. He might have wanted to recall that part of the reason the right to bear arms is codified in the Constitution is that Britain was trying to disarm the citizenry at the time.
Damn Mr Carr for ripping a sheet from the play-book of Captain Obvious.
I say: send Mr Morgan, the quintessential loser British twat, back to the UK where he can take up the cause of Muslims and those who wish to destroy the United Kingdom and other oppressive Western civilizations. And enjoy, Mr Morgan, your prognosticated Orwellian 1984 at least a few more years before we Yanks will.
Firearms-free, of course. Because average UK citizens cannot and never will be trusted with “bang-sticks” in their possession. An actual Webley in the hand of Piers Morgan himself? Think of the children!
A bit of sarcasm there, eh wot?
I wonder from where the origins of the words Prole and Serf and Groundling source? Perhaps you can tell me, Mr Morgan?
Oh. That’s right. From British books and plays and history. Imagine that.
