Gun Walker II - The 80% Edition?

If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

What I'm about to share is partially conjecture, but a Class III FFL buddy of mine said I needed to get this out there and also thanks to David Codrea for asking me to write this down;

My research on this topic began on March 8th of this year. 

I am concerned that the issue with the 'Ghost Gun' press conference was a foreshadowing of a larger, more diabolical maneuver by those within the current US administration.

Their goals, ever since the founding of the failed League of Nations, have been to attack the basic human rights of self defense and the ability for an individual to bear arms. [ref]

These powers-that-be took a big hit when it was revealed that the command structure within the ATF had allowed guns to 'walk into Mexico'.  Their hand had been played - the world was well aware of their plan and the American arms owner was on high alert.

Still, this has never stopped them;

When the infamous "Ghost Gun" issue came up a few weeks ago, it was at best laughable.  [ref]

So, another ill advised California politician gets alot of gun terminology wrong during a press conference.  People make fun of him, life goes on.   California and the other infiltrated states are not short on people who have no idea what a firearm actually does, much less how to properly name each part.

However, I'm starting to become concerned that the joke may be on the arms community.

What people failed to realize, despite the model, this press conference was a direct attack on Americans having access to gun parts - especially gun parts that can't be 'tracked'.

The situation with Ares Armor and other raids on 80% lower providers may be linked to a bigger operation - if the evidence from the current Ares Armor warrant is correct.  For example & from several sources; a machinist who may have been involved with one of build classes (outside of Ares Armor) is also a Mexican-American felon.   (As of this date, from my understanding - he is not actually an American and is allegedly aligned with Mexican Marxists and the drug cartels). [ref] [ref]

If this is true, then there is a high possibility that the 'ghost gun' ruse is a set up - and one with deep, well placed tendrils ...

While I am not totally convinced that Ares Armor is fully free from all allegations of misconduct, I know certainly that the ATF went about this completely wrong.  Still, all of these weird, little facts are starting to build an uglier and more macabre picture.

The question is why is the ATF making such a big, public issue out of Ares Armor and other raids?

To begin to understand my theory, one must be aware of some additional factors.

There are several issues at play when it comes to the forces aligned against America's right to bear arms [but not limited to]: 

  1. Compliance with the international small arms treaty that was illegally signed by Kerry with the United Nations. [ref]
  2. The current administration's "war on guns", gun owners and the human right of self defense. [ref]
  3. A need for the administration to salvage it's image and prove itself right after the Gun-walking scandal. [ref]

Unfortunately for the Administration, during Gunwalker and the Fast and Furious revelations, nearly all the guns were serialized and could be traced back to the ATF when the problems in Mexico arose.  With NICS, they are actively involved and responsible in some way for approving the movement, sale and release of any firearm held by a licensed dealer.   The American 'gun control system' works so well, it was nearly impossible for them to set up any truly large firearms transactions without some sort of paper trail from the manufatuer, to the dealer and then the owner.

In short, approval to buy a gun rests solely on the government and it's NICS system.  That NICS system is fully administered by the BATFE itself.  When it comes to receiving the 'completed firearm' and getting permission from the ATF, the FFL (a federally licensed firearms dealer) has no idea about what to do other than approve, decline or wait on the gun sale to go through.

Stated, the US government already has a fair bit of control over who buys and receives firearms.

And they are completely culpable if they let a few some how 'go'. 

This was the issue that came up during Fast and Furious - so in the end, it was very hard to blame the issue on the actions of a few 'border FFLs'. [ref]

What the Administration does not want people to know is that gun sales are very well documented, something that has come back now to bite them in the ass.

However, 80% lowers don't have these issues.  They aren't serialized.  They can't be traced back to some black budget  program to prove that the gun banners and their highly placed allies within the US government are actually at work and spinning their web. 

In truth, the murky laws surrounding the 80% market are a blessing in disguise  - especially when it comes to rescuing the administration from the bad press and failed attempts of the first Gunwalker scandal.

My belief - and it's just a belief - that what is going to go down is this:

Completed, now former 80% AR-15, AR-10 and/or 1911 lowers, are going to somehow "mysteriously" make it across the border to Mexico.  People who have been buying these lowers will be connected, through paperwork, to these illicit, 'international arm sales' that suddenly show up in some 'Mexican massacre'.   The president of Mexico will make a big international stink over it and 'force' the US to 'act'.   "These are your guns ..." they'll say, "they come from your loose gun laws and sold to us by your citizens - you must act!"

But how would they know this?  The process for following the trail is very simple.  Ironically & conveniently,  these shops that are offering classes (and tools) on how to finish lowers will be to blame.  Being that many of these outfits are in California, almost all of them keep records on who attends their classes.   

In regards to the blank, several 80% lower providers also keep records for tax purposes.  Now that the ATF is currently trying to insert itself directly into the practices of these 'build-it yerself' shops, many will turn over anything they have to get the jack-boots off their proverbial rears.

But then you have the issue of tracing it back to the manufacturers, well;

Given that many of the 80% lowers are branded to the issuing outfit, it wouldn't be too hard for them to knock down the dominoes in short order and show that 'completed' American guns were being sold to Mexico.   This time, not by the hand of either the Administration or by permission from Holder's DOJ/ATF, they'll lay the blame purely at the feet of the arms business and swiftly denounce anyone they deem fit to demonize.
Ergo, the Administration can 'prove' it was "right all along and that 'illegal American guns' are making it into Mexico".

In my mind, this is all a big set up for the 'see I told you so' moment they may have been waiting on ...

What they'll do after that is even more predictable;   Lobby to have all gun parts registered and tracked, push for more restrictions and etc.

At this point, they've realized that in order to affect a complete gun ban; they need to restrict/stop the fair trade of any gun part and all ammunition.

The best place for that to start is to show how American gun parts - the 'unregulated sector' - are winding up in foreign countries killing (yet again), small children.
Since they came up with Fast & Furious, I wouldn't put it past these people to go that far - they've played the long game before and nearly won.

What we've just explored is a theory - at this point, I am not certain that this is the current game at play.

But, as self defense advocates, we need to keep our eyes open.

And remember, they never, ever, let a 'good crisis go to waste'. [ref]

Let me know what you think.

Restoration, not revolution: Why starting a revolution is a very bad idea

Khrushchev said that the sure destruction of America would happen from within and that they will take down the country without firing a shot.

Stalin himself pointed out that violent revolution often preceded the establishment of a socialist order, which in turn, would become communism.

Given these two notions, one is safe in concluding that any current revolution within America will not involve foreign powers, but will come about by a form of an internal, social breakdown. This, one may reason, is also by design. 

In regards to starting a revolution, my argument (and plea) is for cooler heads to prevail ...

Many people out there are clutching their guns and talking about starting a revolution.  So it is of no surprise to me that the public is being intentionally agitated in order to instigate some sort of armed conflict between the American people and their government.  If the American populace fires the first shot, this will not be a good sign. People forget that we never started a war with the British, it was the British that caused that to happen by attempting to disarm the Colonists.  The king, in every sence, threw the first punch.

We, as a country and individuals, are in a dangerous situation here; fortunately, the Constitution provided for a way to deal with this issue.  However, I have doubts that Americans will properly choose this path.  Even now, hotheaded individuals are calling for revolution in order to keep our private property rights and liberties.  As was pointed out by a police lieutenant from North Carolina, 'liberty broadcasters' (against their knowledge) will be used to fan the flames (in order to start an internal revolution) [Call to Decision, GCN, Jan 2, 2013].  Once the first shots are fired, this in turn will allow for the implementation of martial law.

If you need an example of this issue from a military standpoint, consider that my college and my state fired the first shots of the Civil War.  We did not win that war.  Keep this in mind as you read the rest of this document, please;

Instigators of revolution are all over the place right now, just as the executive office provokes the Republic by openly threatening to ban certain types of firearms. The media is quick to take only one side of the debate, making Americans (purposely) feel like they have no voice.  This is all being done to cause agitation.  The Governor of New York state, too, is threatening confiscation.  Again, Americans are becoming upset at the government and the media for twisting the truth and threatening liberty (as they should be, but not for the reasons that they may think ).

These events are all too convenient ...

Tonight, I got to hear Piers Morgan 'debate' Alex Jones about gun rights in America.  In short, it was a debacle.  Jones screamed that it was going to be '1776 Again!' if any sort of confiscation took place.  Jones, in many respects, is a provocateur at best.  One couldn't be faulted for believing that he played right into Piers Morgan's hands.  However, those of us with a longer memory of Alex Jones's stunts can recall how he nearly caused a state of martial law around the year 2000.

I'm sometimes reminded over the years that Jones almost successfully provoked a nation-wide social catastrophe - on December 31rst, 1999 right before Y2K - by falsely claiming that the Russians would be invading.   Giving this, I personally witnessed folks 'heading for the hills', due to his broadcast.  Had violence or hysteria broken out at that point, I'm certain the powers that be would have suspended the Constitutional Republic and instigated martial law.  Even in those days, I and several others like Mr. Bill Cooper, questioned why Jones would do such a thing.

Jones has never done much for the liberty movement, I know it doesn't seem like it when you look at his body of work, but it is true. By calling for a revolution on national television, he set the stage, again, for catastrophe.

 Restoration, not revolution;

A restoration is a Constitutionally directed process that allows the loyal elements and state militias to restore order during a tyrannical takeover of the Republic.  

Stated, as individuals of this Free Republic, we must avoid the trap of instigating a premature revolution.  Should we defend ourselves against unjust tyranny?  Yes! By all means! But it should only happen under these conditions;

Any sort of violent action against the liberty of the American people has to be started by those that who would wish to abolish the Republic and bring America into the global system (or any other order) - period.  As in poker, a verbal argument or a true fight, whoever throws the first punch loses. It is my belief that the American people are being set up to throw the first punch.

Given this clear understanding, if any tyrannical elements within our own government violently move against the American people, the Republic is allowed to mobilize.  Then - and only at this point - what must take place is a restoration of  Constitutional law and order.  This is the only condition where the people, as a whole and individually, are well within their rights to defend themselves through armed conflict against tyrannical oppression.  If it occurs under any other condition, we may very well witness the fall of the Republic.

Restoration ensures that the rule of law takes precedence over injustice.  Traitors to the Republic should be tried through the American system.  They must be given a fair trial, tried for their crimes against the Republic, and if convicted, be punished for their actions.

Like Waco, these tyrannical elements must throw the first punch. It must be obvious to all of the world who the actual aggressor is.

However, as we are currently poised, a situation is being set up to justify gun confiscation by allowing the armed portion of our Republic to prematurely pick a fight over a possible gun ban [which at this point, hasn't even been introduced to Congress].

You have no idea how utterly well-prepared that these globalist forces are, when it comes to dealing with such a matter. They've been waiting for almost 100 years.  In fact; they want it to happen.

This is a trap that must be avoided.

Bullies can threaten alot of things, whether or not they have the balls to take action is another issue altogether.  

Stated again, don't believe the hype and fall for the trap. Revolutions are violent and their outcomes are uncertain.  What lies at the end may not be the liberty that most of us so vehemently desire.

Prepare, plan and be vigilant - however, make no move that would jeopardize the stability of the Republic.  I'm utterly convinced that many Americans are not prepared to endure a premature revolution given the current economic situation.  Time has to be bought through patience and endurance.

We, as individuals, must make time and hold the voices calling for revolution at bay.

For once America falls, be it by executive order of martial law or through an ill planned armed revolution, it will fall forever.

Thank you for reading.

God bless you and your family, and if Providence wills it again:

God save the Republic.

Gunsite to use my work

I did some mock up work for Gunsite recently and they decided they want to use it for their newsletter.  Honestly, if I had my way, I would redesign the whole thing, but I think we are just lucky to see them on the web.
Pretty simple stuff, however, that's how they like it in Arizona

What I did was take the logo image of the raven and realizing that they aren't much on flash bang or anyone really messing with that design, I kept it to a minimum.  Only thing needed to happen was fly the Gunsite raven over the (very minimal) sky of Arizona (digitally).

Heller Foundation website comes to fruition

So, I started work on the site about four days ago.  Dick Heller and his crew have been happy so far with the progress.  Very grateful to have gotten the design up and running.  While I did start out with a template, the design part is my own work along with the photography of Oleg Volk.  The content and what the site represents belong to the fearless duo, Dick and Dane.

You can check out the website here:

I'll keep you posted as we get the website into production.

On board with the Heller Foundation

Rich Heller
Wow, I've just been asked to help head up the Internet and Communications side of the Heller Foundation by Rich Heller himself and the fine folks on his staff.  (That's techlanese for the old phrase 'webmaster' btw.)  Mr. Heller has been instrumental in over turning the DC Gun Ban and taking the fight for the Second Amendment all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court (Heller Vs. DC).

That stated, keep an eye out for their new website coming up in a week or so. Here is their stated mission:

"The Heller Foundation is a  Second Amendment  advocacy non-profit challenging infringements of  our  Constitutional Rights  to  "keep and bear arms"  and  promoting youth  education & firearms safety programs."

Their website address is

The Heller Charter Arms .44 Special Bulldog
In recognition of the June, 2008 U.S. Supreme Court victory, Charter Arms commissioned the Heller Version of their famous Bulldog .44 Special.  This particular firearm was the recommended newbie CCW weapon of the now late Mike Harries of Gunsite - so it is only fitting that this fine revolver was picked for such an honor.

As Obama capitalizes on the tragedy in Tuscon and makes this horrible event an excuse for another gun grab, please consider supporting the Heller Foundation in the fight to keep the Second Amendment a right that all Americans for generation will enjoy, protect and cherish.
