You do not know a tyranny until it is on top of you;
until it has you in a trap. The tyrant is not present until he is omnipresent.
~G. K. Chesterton
Bill Cooper warned they’d stage school massacres To try to make the people give up guns; To the “Elite,” we’re worthless sheep and curs, And shaping what we think and do is fun.
The Founders knew how power will corrupt,
How those in power grasp and don’t relent;
That’s why they wrote Amendment Number Two,
For guns defend against harsh government.
The atheists who worship government
Overlook the deceit in hearts of clay;
When godless men take power, no restraint
Keeps them from harming those who block their way,
Except it’s difficult to bring them harm–
And tyrants and their troops are held at bay–
When watchful patriots, well-trained, well-armed,
Prepare to shoot when power goes astray.
From Chapter 12 of Behold a Pale Horse by Bill Cooper, 1991:
“The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the anti-gun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd Amendment.”
