Do Sandy Hook and Additional Gun Control Illustrate Directed History?

N.Y. Assembly Speaker Silver: "We Are Going To Ban Assault Weapons." Among New Laws, Gun Owners Would Have To Renew License Every 5 Years ... The New York State Legislature was poised Tuesday to pass the first gun control measure following the Newtown school massacre. This as the vice president was set to unveil federal proposals to end gun violence later in the day. Albany lawmakers ironed out the kinks Monday, allowing them to propose in writing new gun control measures in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting. Assuming the new bill passes — it was approved by the Senate late Monday night and will go before the House on Tuesday — it will turn into the toughest set of gun control laws in the country. "The people of this state are crying out for help on gun violence. We don't need another tragedy," Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday night. "I think this is one of the greatest problems facing our state. If this proposal is enacted it is one of the most comprehensive approaches to the problem." – CBS New York

Dominant Social Theme: Children cry out for justice.

Free-Market Analysis: The politicians are not even trying to hide it anymore. Motivated by the passions of the day, state legislatures are beginning to take action to make certain weapons more difficult or impossible to purchase.

The US Constitution plainly states that legislators are not to restrict people's rights to own guns. But in New York the argument over gun control has given way to "action." Owning guns is to be fully licensed now and subject to renewal. The article excerpted above tells us that the new state legislation will:

The US Constitution plainly states that legislators are not to restrict people's rights to own guns. But in New York the argument over gun control has given way to "action." Owning guns is to be fully licensed now and subject to renewal. The article excerpted above tells us that the new state legislation will:

  • Limit ammunition clips to seven. It's now 10

  • Stiffen penalties for bringing a gun on school property

  • Force gun owners to renew their licenses every five years

  • Stiffen penalties for using a gun in the commission of a crime

  • Add new restrictions on the assault weapons already owned by New Yorkers

We now have an even starker contradiction between the constitutional "law of the land" and the "law" of New York State.

The Second Amendment to the US Constitution reads as follows: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed." But watch this video, above, and you will see this vital reference is not even being referred to in mainstream media coverage.

The text of this amendment is fairly clear, especially when one examines the surrounding debate of the time, amply preserved in various notes and notations. Thus, it is strange to see a national debate take place that treats the issue as if it is floating in midair, untethered by any larger legal consideration.

The Constitution surely is not perfect and was perhaps a step back in many ways for the confederation of states of the time. But even so, a number of those who wrote it attempted to ensure that it would not be turned into a vehicle of oppression by adding a Bill of Rights as amendments that clarified its intent. Here's more from the article:

Sources told CBS 2′s Marcia Kramer the deal worked out by the Legislature is wide ranging, but it starts with assault weapons.

"To basically eradicate assault weapons from our streets in New York as quickly as possible is something the people of this state want and it's an important thing to do. It is an emergency," Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver told CBS 2's Kramer.

"We are going to ban assault weapons. We are going to eliminate all of the loopholes that existed previously," Silver added. "They will be basically not permitted to be transferred. They will be grandfathered in but not in terms of a transfer. There will be a registry," Silver said.

A registry is what gun owners have feared for years. Once one has to register a gun, all sorts of other considerations come into play. Gun owners are suddenly exposed to state retribution for their purchases. Potentially they take on a new liability: They can be looked on as enemies of the state.

This is not merely alarmism. In the 20th century, rogue states murdered something like 250 million individuals – and there is nothing to stop a seemingly pacifistic government from evolving into something far more troublesome.

The argument taking place in the United States is partially based on the idea that the US is turning into a far less benign place when it comes to civilian freedoms.

The evidence is everywhere. From the creation of the inaptly named Homeland Security agency, to the "constitution-free zone" along the entire US border, to the increasing brutality of law enforcement and federal assertions the government has the right to murder civilians at will, and to arrest and hold them indefinitely without trial, as well, it is obvious that the US is becoming less free and more oppressive.

Conspiracy-minded individuals will claim this is because the powers-that-be are attempting to create one-world government and are trying to eradicate US freedoms in order to do so. The US, one of the world's only extant republics, is well known for its "exceptionalism" and culture of freedom. This is why the US is target number one for the forces of globalism – or so the argument goes.

The conspiratorial version of history clearly maintains that various false flags are in use to attack US freedoms, and that these include the massacre of innocents in schools to create and enforce draconian gun control. While there is no hard evidence for this version of what we call "directed history," there are surely plenty of questions raised as a result of these shootings and the "official" narrative that is eventually disseminated. See, for instance, "Professor's Questions About Sandy Hook Shooting Recall Columbine Massacre."

What is also true is that gun control has been the first step toward oppressive and even murderous government. Even if one maintains that the US government is yet a benign bulwark of global freedom, there is always the possibility that its enormous power can be used for ill as well as good and that like so many governments it can become an oppressor of its citizens rather than a defender.

Is that what is happening today?
