It seems that America is quickly becoming the land of the sheep and the home of the cowed.
On Saturday, residents of Greensboro, N.C., were encouraged to sign a so-called “Pledge of Nonviolence” and turn over any unwanted handguns, rifles, shotguns and ammunition to the police. Guns, The Blaze reported, “will be checked to see if they had been lost or stolen; if so, those guns will be returned to their rightful owner, the News & Record reported.”
“Violence is on the rise somewhat in our community,” said Deputy Police Chief James Hinson. “A lot of that violence is centered around handguns and aggravated assaults. And the ultimate goal is to reduce violence in our community so that our citizens can feel safe when they go out and just continue to improve the overall image of our city.”
No compensation was given for the guns turned in, but the first 1,000 residents to sign the pledge would receive a small gift. Residents can still hand over their weapons to the police anytime by calling the department’s non-emergency phone number.
Writing at Freedom Outpost, Suzanne Hamner added:
If you viewed the news footage, police had plenty of “sheeple” that blindly followed their “requests” to “turn in your guns.” No law had to be passed. All that had to be said was, “gun violence is on the rise somewhat and we want a nonviolent community so we ask all residents to voluntarily turn in your guns to reduce violence.”
How many criminals do you think are going to turn in their guns or sign some nonviolent pledge even when the turn in is anonymous? Zero! None. The criminals are dancing around as now, they have more targets. Citizens are going to feel so safe since the guns of law-abiding citizens were turned over to police and people signed pledges to be nonviolent. Whoever believes that should check out the advertisements for “work at home” and make tens of thousands of dollars each week. Is there anyone who still believes law-abiding citizens giving up their right to bear arms will reduce violence? If so, “here’s your sign.”
Welcome to Obama’s fundamentally transformed America…
