The start of the First American Revolution has often been tied to Lexington MA where shots were fired on April 18th, 1775 , where eight Americans were killed and a British soldier was slightly wounded. This is not far from Connecticut where another revolution is brewing.
The Second American Revolution, as it will come to be labeled if not thwarted by astute politicians, is brewing now in Connecticut where an oppressive government is seeking to deprive its citizens of their rights under the Constitution that was established as “the law of the land” after the First American Revolution was successful.
The two revolutions will be similar in their beginnings. Each was created by a government that had become enamored of its power. These two governments, King George III and The Legislature of the State of Connecticut, both pressed their subjects for a long time while the revolution fermented like a bad wine. Then when things became unbearable and the only way to relieve themselves of the title of “criminal”, the citizens began to resist that government. The 239th anniversary of the beginning of that First revolution is fast approaching, on the 18th of April 2014. The “350 Thousand Criminal” citizens of Connecticut are resisting NOW.
It is not yet the shot heard around the world, but as the two forces, 350,000 Americans with, government described, assault weapons face off with the Connecticut Legislature, it is approaching time for someone to blink. Hopefully it will be the government that blinks. because it is unlikely that “350 Thousand Criminals” will blink. They are already criminals by Connecticut law, what is to be gained by giving in?
Already the leadership and about 250 officers of the Peace Officers Association of Connecticut have stated that they WILL NOT enforce the unconstitutional law. They are standing with the “350 Thousand Criminals”.
In the First American Revolution only 3% of the population stood against the oppressive government. That is all it took to win the war. In Connecticut the population is current 3,574,097. The “350 Thousand Criminals” represent 10% of the population of Connecticut! They are already resisting. If even 2 out of 3 of them will just lay down their arms. That still leaves “The 3%”.
Extrapolating further, there are 300 million people in the united states. There are perhaps 45 million LEGAL “assault weapons owners”. That represents 15% of the population. If those 15% were made “criminals” by a change in law, and even if 4 out of 5 of them lay down their arms, there would still be “The 3%”.
It is interesting that our current impotent government has told us that they cannot arrest 11 million illegal aliens because they couldn’t house them, let alone find them. That’s less than 0.4% of the population!
How much harder would it be to arrest and house 45 million American criminals…………45 million that, unlike the illegal aliens, are armed. Even if the entire United States Armed Forces of 450,000 were used. They would be outnumbered 10 to 1. An army of that size with only one in ten armed, overcame the US Army in North Korea. All of this army would be armed. And I doubt that the individual members of the army, who would most likely go AWOL, or the population at large would allow such a war to go on. Leaders that supported such a war would be taken from power and “the 3%” would win.
We can only hope that the legislature of Connecticut comes to its senses before it foments the Second American Revolution
