Dear Blue,
Did you see Obama's speech yesterday, calling for more gun control?
Did it make your blood boil?
It made a lot of people's blood boil because Gun Control is a BIG LIE and Obama is a master at the BIG LIE.
Responsible, sane Americans are being mentally abused.
Have you ever heard the term gaslighting?
Gaslighting is a form of psychological abuse in which false information is presented with the intent of making a victim doubt his or her own memory, perception, and sanity.
Instances may range simply from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred, up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim (Dorpat, 1994).
You are being told repeatedly by anti-gun advocates, politicians, and the media that they support the Second Amendment and that no one really wants to take your guns, yet the President is pushing Congress for more restrictive gun control legislation that will substantially impact your gun rights. 
You're being told that the gun control measures they want to take are "reasonable" and reflective of "common sense," yet your own common sense makes it clear not a single measure being suggested would have prevented any of the mass shootings we've seen.
You are being told that law enforcement supports gun control when in fact law enforcement officers surveyed reject gun control.
You're being told that civilians have no need for an AR-15 or 30-round magazines, yet the people who seek to ban them are routinely protected by the same weapons with the same high-capacity magazines, along with their families.
You are being told that gun registration can help reduce violent crime; yet we know criminals are not going to register their guns, and every modern despot who came to power used gun registration to ultimately disarm the public before invoking tyrannical policies.
You will soon be told that the actions being taken are necessary to stop the senseless violence and murder of innocent children. Yet, effective solutions like armed security in schools or the elimination of gun-free zones where mass murders tend to occur, are dismissed outright, all while armed security protects the halls and residences of those in power.
To the weak minded these reforms will seem acceptable. Rest assured, however, that when the next mass murders occur, directly as a result of more gun control shifting the balance of power further into the hands of criminals by disarming the law abiding, the government will insist the changes did not go far enough and they will come after the remaining guns.
You are told gun confiscation will never happen, that gun registration is simply to prevent criminals from having guns, yet gun confiscation occurred after Hurricane Katrina and is happening now in the state of New York and in the state of California.
The Nazis understood the effectiveness of using authority to manage average people who were reluctant to believe that the regime would ultimately harm them. The Warsaw Ghetto, where the Nazis segregated Polish Jews before sending most of them to die in Treblinka during WWII is a good example. Initially the Jews vastly outnumbered their Nazi overlords yet these people complied with the edicts imposed upon them, thinking it wise to do so - until it was too late. The same was true of the Russians who were murdered under Stalin, the Cambodians under Pol Pot, the Rwandan Tutsis under the Hutus, and every other example of the imposition of tyranny.
Don't think it could happen here?
You are being Gaslighted. You are being told lies about the true intentions of those who seek to take your gun rights by attrition and they have much history to show them how to do it. 170 million people have fallen for this tactic and were eventually killed by their own governments.
Those who suggest this is happening are branded as paranoid conspiracy nuts, a tactic of the gaslighting process. The approach is as clever and effective as it is diabolical and many in America are falling prey to it.
Those who recognize it for what it is will face difficult choices -- comply or resist both of which carry adverse consequences.
We study history to understand where the future is likely to carry us and now you are living it. Either you are going to be a part of deciding your own destiny or you will allow others to determine it for you. I choose the former.
Make no mistake. ANY politician who introduces, supports, or votes for ANY gun control is either uninformed and uneducated on the subject or is knowingly violating our Second Amendment rights.
Either way, whether an idiot or a traitor, THEY NEED TO BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE. Make sure they know, each and every day through an e-mail, a call or a letter that YOU ARE WATCHING THEIR EVERY MOVE on the gun issue.
Here is a link to find your representatives. http://capwiz.com/gunowners/dbq/officials/
And remember, if all else fails, the only thing they can't take from you is your ability and willingness to use the guns you have to defend yourself against all enemies, foreign and domestic so make sure YOU ARE TRAINED.

The D.C. types have been lying to us for decades, why put a fancy label on it now? I didn't use the word politicians because there's a lot of others, like the lying press secretary, Carney, he's worse than those whose ass he kisses in some ways.

It's too late to vote them out of office, and e-mails or phone calls don't work, so now it's just waiting for the hammer to drop.

Joe Biden very recently demonstrated Gaslighting when he called gun owners "The Black Helicopter Crowd" and furthered it by saying sarcastically "Special Forces Folks are gonna swoop down on America and grab everyone's guns."

I cannot recommend to enough people to read the book "Propaganda" by Edward Bernays.
Those who wish to control others beliefs, from governments to businesses, use the techniques of propaganda (now called marketing or public perception or some other bogus term) daily, if not hourly. Once you recognize what it is, you're halfway there to seeing through it. The second step is finding out what the goal is.
