Chuck Baldwin: Will you be an Outlaw, too?

Ladies and gentlemen, whatever the consequences might be, and whatever anyone else does or doesn’t do, I am prepared to become an outlaw over this issue! I don’t know how to say it any plainer: I will not register my firearms, and I will not surrender my firearms. Period. End of story. It’s not just a saying with me: when my guns are outlawed, I will be an outlaw!

It is time RIGHT NOW for every American citizen to make up his or her mind on this issue.

There are many laws, which I personally find repugnant and even unconstitutional, to which I grudgingly submit. For example, while I very much understand, and even philosophically agree with, those who refuse to pay income taxes, I pay income taxes. Even though I believe the income tax to be unconstitutional, onerous, and maybe even nefarious, I have not drawn my line in the sand on that issue. I haven’t drawn a line in the sand on the requirement for all sorts of government licenses, i.e., marriage licenses, driver’s licenses, CCW permits, Social Security cards, etc., even though I personally believe that many requirements for licensure stretch the boundaries of legitimate government. And, again, even though I understand those who refuse to take them, I have a marriage license, a driver’s license, a CCW permit, and a Social Security card. There are many issues over which I am willing to be annoyed, but for the sake of perceived Christian testimony and/or perceived good citizenship, I reluctantly and grudgingly comply. But on the issue of taking away my right to keep and bear arms–including a semi-automatic rifle–I absolutely refuse to comply!

My line in the sand is drawn here!

Make no mistake about it: it is not just semi-automatic rifles that these gun grabbers are after. Ultimately, they want to take all of our guns. We either stop them now or there will be no stopping them at all.

It is no hyperbole to say that this attempt by people such as Barack Obama and Dianne Feinstein to make outlaws out of law-abiding citizens for simply exercising our right to keep and bear arms is the most important political battle of our lifetimes! I am not exaggerating when I say that the future of freedom and liberty for our children and for our country–not to mention the future of our own personal lives and freedom–hang in the balance.

I am a criminal

Kind of reminds me of an article R. Lee Wrights wrote several years ago. Both articles together are a good combo read.

I Am a Criminal

["I realized that every time I set foot off of my own property, I became a criminal. I violate the law each and every time I take a leisurely stroll around my neighborhood. In almost half a century on this earth, I have never been arrested, much less convicted of a crime; and yet, all I have to do to become a criminal in the eyes of the State is leave home!"]

Poster I saw somewhere -

I would
rather go to my grave
never having had to use my gun
than go to my grave
wishing I'd had a gun to use!

(or something along those lines)

People buy life insurance, in case something bad happens to them
They will not buy a gun to prevent something bad from happening to them.

A gun is just life insurance that you can hold in your hand!


on target!

I'm an outlaw!

With the non-ciminalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado, the handwriting is on the wall. More states will be liberalizing their marijuana laws. This means that there will be a significant decrease in our national prison population. What's a poor prison company to do? Incarceration has been such a growth industry. This trend doesn't just effect the bottom line of for profit prisons. Union prison guards and prison sub contractors will also be negatively affected. Some of the strongest lobbyists for making gun owners criminals are probably such entities.



I'm not an outlaw, I'm a cowboy.


It's all the same, only the names will change
Everyday, it seems we're wastin' away
Another place, where the faces are so cold
I drive all night, just to get back home

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days
The people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when you're all alone all you do is think

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive....

Ooh, and I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Wanted dead or alive

I walk these streets
A loaded six-string on my back
I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall
I've seen a million faces
And I've rocked them all

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Wanted dead or alive
I'm a cowboy, I got the night on my side
Wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.


Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

There may be no police or military

willing to disarm their own people.

In Canada they tried the gun registry for a few years and finally just gave up on it. The task was too expensive and impossible to keep track of. There is NO gun registry now in Canada.

But we still have to take a course to be trained in gun safety. Same in Switzerland. You get a gun license after completing the course.

BUT the UN does not just want us registered. The morons want everyone disarmed to facilitate their job of being dictators.

It has been said that America cannot be defeated except by civil war. Maybe Americans are being set up for civil war, using the gun issue. The sheep are so brain dead; easily media brainwashed.

We are not immortal

Each and every one of us is going to die and there isn't a thing we can do about it. Thousands of people die every day from natural means or their lives are cut short before a purpose is fulfilled. I am at peace with the thought of dying and so I don't live in fear of death since I know I can not escape death. Since I will die someday, I hope I will have lived my life with enough purpose that my time here will not be insignificant. It seems to me that the choice that each man faces is whether they will die defending their freedom or whether they will die as a coward in chains. I won't wear chains. Maybe I'll die as the only one who took a stand or maybe I will die with thousands of others who took the same personal oath to defend their freedom, either way it doesn't matter. What matters is how much evil I can send to hell before I die if evil confronts me.



"All men die, but few men really live..." (from Braveheart)

I'm not scared to die, either, because my eternity is set for Heaven, not because I'm a good person ('cause I sure am not), but because I've put all my trust and faith in Christ's finished work on Calvary to save me from my deserved eternity, the lake of fire.

"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23
"For the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." Romans 6:23
"It is appointed unto man once to die and after this the judgement." Hebrews 9:27
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16

I am, however, not really thrilled about the METHOD of dying, torture being high on that list. How about you?

I like your comment,
"Maybe I'll die as the only one who took a stand or maybe I will die with thousands of others who took the same personal oath to defend their freedom..."

method of dying

I don't really like the idea of torture but my plans never took into consideration the thought of being taken alive. There are ways of ensuring a peaceful death once the ammo is all gone, akin to a cyanide pill under the tongue. Lethal dose of Demerol.



Well, if death is the end-all, then that seems much more peaceful than torture. I'd just hate for you to avoid earthly temporary torture only to go into eternal torture!! And since the Word of God speaks more about Hell than Heaven, from His warnings, I'd say the Lake of Fire is far worse than any torture. Not to mention it never ends. Please be prepared in this life for the next by trusting in Christ alone. Granting that you are still alive for this freedom battle, you obviously have your strategy, including your weapon defense, all planned out, (which is light years ahead of most Americans)....but please don't forget to also be ready for the most important part of all (if you're not already), since none of us know WHEN we will enter eternity (like you said, thousands of people die every day), but once we do, it is too late to change locations from hell to heaven, if on this earth we rejected, ignored or procrastinated about Salvation.

"Behold now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation." 2 Corinthians 6:2b

This whole life will only seem a fraction of a second compared to eternity that never ends.

I apologize if this comes across too intense; its just a deep subject, and I really care about my fellow patriots. Anyway, a lot of us can be intense :-)

By the way, CONGRATS on your 5 yr DP Anniversary - wish I'd known about this website 5 yrs. ago!

I'm an atheist so talking

I'm an atheist so talking about religious salvation is a wasted conversation with me.


As Patriots, you and I have both seen

how many frustrating times various news sources, relatives, neighbors, etc... have a different spin or story on an event that happened. And they can very sincerely believe their own version...but their sincerity does not change the truth of what actually happened. What really happened is truth, and that fact will not change, even if sincere people believe differently, even if a majority of sincere people believe differently.

If you'll allow me to leave one final thought, since ultimately, there is only one truth on how we got on planet earth or where we are going after death. No matter what all the religions, agnostics, and atheists in the world sincerely believe, there is still only one truth to how it REALLY happened.

You say you're an atheist – from my previous experiences, an atheist believes there is no God, no Heaven, no Hell, no truth of the Bible. For sake of argument, lets say YOU'RE RIGHT. Let's say I die, believing in Christ – what happens after death to me? I cease to exist?
If you're right, what do I lose?

On the other hand, lets say I'M RIGHT, the Bible is true, there is an all powerful God Who created us, there is a Heaven and a Hell, and Christ paid the price on the Cross so all who believe in Him will be saved from the flames of Hell to a wonderful eternity in Heaven. Let's say you die in atheistic unbelief, what happens after death to you? Does the God of the Universe, the One who holds the galaxies in His hands disappear because a group of his small finite created human beings in the Milky Way doesn't believe in Him? Will any atheist dare at that moment to sincerely tell God to his face that he doesn't believe He exists? Scripture says that every knee shall bow, every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11) However, acknowledging there is a God when they can see Him after death is not saving faith before death, so the realization will not grant them heaven, but will only torment their thoughts in the lake of fire for eternity.
If I'm right, what do you lose?

Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound - Rom. 5:20

Those are great truths to be grounded and settled on. Consider how a few more holy words give us an even better view from above:

"For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
*Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.
*For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.
*And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good?
*But and if ye suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled;
*But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
*Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
*For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing." - 1 Peter 3:10-17 ...

"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
*But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
*If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you:
*on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. *But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.
*Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf." - 1 Peter 4:12-16

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

If I had a choice,

I'd far rather die for Christ than die for earthly freedom, but I suppose that depends on which one would happen first. I hope I get to live a long life and see my grandchildren, etc...

I just don't know what will happen first - or how quickly it will happen.

Thank you for the verses.

I already am one.

I always rip those tags off my mattresses. I sniff my magic markers sometimes; I love that smell. I speed a lot. I am sure I have lived in sin in a place where it was illegal. I failed to register my dog. I littered. I have totally remodeled my home without a permit. I burn without notifying the authorities. I ate one of those mushrooms that grew out of my cow's poo.

The list goes on and on. I am not sure how I have gotten away with it all. Luck I guess. If y'all are missing me sometime here at DP I probably got picked up. Don't expect me back any time soon because the list is so long I'll be away for awhile.

I beg all your pardons for my criminal lifestyle.


Just as long as you don't consume raw milk!

(sound of sirens in distance)

I haven't found it.

I have been looking though. I am a career criminal.

Dude. You probably shouldn't

Dude. You probably shouldn't eat things that grow in poo. Just a thought.

Poo's good

I have poo for the winter sleeping asparagus bed. I'm sure you're rethinking that thought now, aren't you. :-)

The night is far spent, the day is at hand.
And those who have not heard shall understand.


I put chicken poo on my garden frequently. LOL


My entire garden is cow poo. Psilocybin's really do grow in my cow's poo too. Purple ringers.
