The Cartridge Box

The Founders left us four boxes to defend our freedom. The Ballot Box. The Soap Box. The Jury Box. And the Cartridge Box.

Time to invest in precious metals – copper jacketed lead

2017-03-26Last week, the new Republican majority again failed their voters.  The long awaited for, and often promised, repeal of ObamaCare failed to materialize.  Again.  It all comes down to the fault built into the system in 1789 – election cycles.

With a country evenly divided, and therefore a district that will be divided, any elected representative has to keep everyone happy, and that means eventually making no one happy.  Obamacare was largely disliked, but everyone who disliked it, could think of one provision which they DID like, and which should remain.  If you add up all of the liked parts, the entire bill was liked, in part, by most people.  And thus, permanent.

This is an old story.  Government programs, which have no legal sunset, are permanent. band-musicians-playing-music-vector-illustration-14375210 There is no way to get rid of them.  So what can we do?  Invest in precious metals.  The economy will not be able to sustain the pressure for much longer.  Our nation is too deeply in debt, and too deeply divided to make the kinds of hard choices to get out of debt.  Soon, the party will be over, and the band will demand their wages.  And when we can’t pay them, there will be hell to pay instead.

Most people keep only a few days of food in their house, and the fuel tank of their vehicle is near half-full.  Their savings in the bank do not equal a month’s wages, and they have no cash at home.  Once the economy collapses under it’s own weight, the th8N5BWFACgovernment will shutter the banks for a week or so to reorganize.  Stores will accept cash only – no EBT cards, and the fun will start.

Groups of people will gather at the stores to just take what they want.  But stores only have enough for 3 days of operations.  So soon, that will be gone, and then those people will start taking, by force, what they want from others – read that –  you.

Here’s where your investment in precious metals will pay off.  Even if you’ve had the foresight to stockpile some food, and water, and maybe fuel for that Coleman stove, how long can you keep it?  Are you prepared to keep it?thFOSK2AE9 Look at the riots in Greece just a few years ago when they tried to tighten the welfare belt.

On your next shopping trip, skip the designer shoes, or the new electronic gadget, and invest in precious metals – copper jacketed lead.  That investment might pay hefty dividends in the near future.





HB 3999 The 2017 Ban on Semi-Auto Guns

A new gun ban is on the way.  And it’s being pushed by Republicans and supported by the NRA.  Think I’m being overly dramatic?  Look at the bill:

To amend title 18, United States Code, to prohibit the manufacture, possession, or transfer of any part or combination of parts that is designed and functions to increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic rifle but does not convert the semiautomatic rifle into a machinegun, and for other purposes.

First let’s ask, WHAT IS THE STANDARD RATE OF FIRE of a semi-auto rifle?

Don’t know?  Then how will you know when a device “increases the rate of fire”?  Better yet, how will the police and the courts know?

Secondly, a semi-auto weapon is DESIGNED to increase an operator’s rate of fire!  The “bean-counters” in Army HQ kept most “repeating rifles” out of the hands of soldiers in the Civil War because they increased the rate of fire (and increased ammunition costs).  And then again, the Garand was designed because the Springfield 06, and other bolt action rifles, didn’t have an adequate “rate of fire”.  So in the end, the semi-auto rifle (or handgun or shotgun) were invented to “increase the rate of fire” for the operator.

SO….the broad brush with which HR 3999 paints will eliminate ALL semi-auto weapons.  Count on it.  Don’t sit on the couch, believing that duck hunters and their semi-auto shotguns are exempt.

Martin Niemoller was a Lutheran Pastor who was imprisoned by the Nazi’s.  He wrote:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Here’s the drill:  call or write all of your representatives in the Federal Gov’t.  THEN, stand up and be counted.  Remember, they can’t “take your guns” if you “don’t give them away”.  The front end of the gun has been designed for the sole purpose of gun retention in the face of tyranny.
