Here's what you need to know about gun confiscation

Wounded Knee

The United States government hasn’t ever confiscated any guns from law-abiding people, right?

Unfortunately they have… and the results haven’t ended well for the unarmed.

After government agents had already peacefully collected the majority of one community’s firearms, they came to confiscate weapons from those who had not peacefully complied. Why? The official government explanation was “for their own safety and protection”.

Federal Agents and members of the military showed up at their homes in the dead of winter. What happened next is a biased account told by the government. 297 people were slaughtered by the U.S. Government that day. 200 were women and children. The entire neighborhood was wiped out. Not a single person was spared. Not one.

Sounds horrific, right? What did the government do to the agents and soldiers responsible for the massacre?  Twenty of the soldiers were deemed “National Heroes” and were awarded the Medal of Honor for their “acts of heroism”.

Some may argue that the slaughter was somehow justified, after all, 40 agents and soldiers died in that encounter. Those arguing that side leave out that over half of those were killed by the overzealous behavior of other soldiers.

Wounded Knee

Are you outraged yet?

Why haven’t you heard of this? Why is the mainstream media covering it up?

They’re not.

This story took place just over 122 years ago in South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The massacre was at the Winter Camp of the Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee.

One-hundred twenty-two years ago 297 people were at their winter homes.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Is it somehow “okay” because this happened 122 years ago?
  • Is it somehow “okay” because it was the government killing Native Americans?
  • Would it be “okay” if this happened again tomorrow?
  • Would it be “okay” if instead of Sioux Indians it were Utes, Paiutes, Hispanics, “Red Necks”, Catholics, Jews, Mormons, or any other group?

It all stared with gun control

This, and many other stories, began by the government tightening “gun control” laws, asking people to voluntarily surrender their weapons, then ordering the rest to be confiscated.

This is a page from our own history books as told by the people who carried out the slaughter. Remember that anyone who could tell the other side was murdered that day… and the people who did the killing were recognized as “heros”.

Those who say it “can’t happen here”, look at the Wounded Knee. It already has.

  1. This article generates unfounded fear of gun confiscation. I advise people not to take it to heart. There are *no* examples of U.S. citizens having guns confiscated in modern history. Unfortunately, the Sioux Indians at that time and place weren’t considered citizens.

    1. While your comment is technically correct, the Sioux were not “citizens” at the time, they were still convinced by the U.S. government to give up their guns. Then were rounded up, again by the U.S. government, to have the remaining firearms forcibly confiscated by the U.S. government. Those who refused were executed without due process by the U.S. government. I respect your freedom to voice your opinion, but respectfully disagree. This article serves to illustrate a REAL instance from our own history where the U.S. government attempted to confiscate firearms from people within the United States of America. Are you saying that you support the U.S. government executing an entire group of people, on American soil, because would not fully comply with a gun confiscation order?

    2. NYC, last week confiscated guns and permit from an innocent man. Took a judge to get them back. NY will make this man rich.
