Former police officer tells Congress she ‘will not comply’ with assault rifle ban

‘Please don’t legislate the 150 million people just like me into being criminals.’

The importance of the Second Amendment cannot be understated, and one former police officer from Texas gave Congress an earful on the subject just today.

When it comes to the idea of removing firearms from Americans, the most important question to ask ourselves is who will this benefit?  A disarmed populace can be controlled, bullied, and dominated by their government, and forced into unthinkable subversion.  Just look at Nazi Germany, for instance.

America, from its very inception, was meant to be different.  Our founders understood that a citizenry looking to preserve its freedom must be armed.

Now, hundreds of years later, the democratic party has become the party of disarmament…and one former Texas cop has told Congress that she simply will not comply.

Dianna Muller, who served in the Tulsa Police Department for 22 years and is the founder of gun advocacy group The DC Project, was among the witnesses at the House Judiciary Committee hearing.

The session on an otherwise contentious issue flew largely under the radar amid the Trump-Ukraine controversy and Democrats’ impeachment push. But reflecting the gun control divide in the country — amid a spate of deadly mass shootings that prompted renewed calls for strict laws — Muller said that such a ban would force lawful gun owners to either give up their arms or become criminals.

Muller was positively unflappable in her assessment of the situation.

“Please don’t legislate the 150 million people just like me into being criminals. It has happened. You’ve already done it,” Muller said, referring to the Trump administration’s ban on bump stocks, the devices that use a semi-automatic weapon’s recoil to make it rapidly fire like an automatic. “I was a bump stock owner, and I had to make a decision: do I become a felon, or do I comply?”

Should the government pass an assault-weapons ban, Muller declared, “I will not comply.”

And, given what we understand about tyranny and oppression over the last century or so, those who would run afoul of this advice are doing themselves and their freedom the ultimate disservice.
