Do you remember the movie The Invasion of the Body Snatchers? Based on a novel by Jack Finney, it was a 1956 movie starring Kevin McCarthy and Dyna Winter, and then remade in 1978 starring Donald Sutherland and Brooke Adams. The classic thriller showed people in a small town being replaced with alien clones that morphed out of plant-like pods while their victims slept. The aliens were exact physical copies of the unfortunate humans whom they killed and then disposed of. The three defensive techniques used by the humans included running away, trying not to sleep, and when they could find them–killing the aliens while they were still in the pods. As the story progressed, due to sheer numbers the pods were increasingly successful.
After the aliens successfully entered society, they worked together in their apparent mission to spread additional pods around the world to supplant the entire human race. The movie was dark and spooky, mostly because it seemed like the aliens were winning and the movie left us hanging as to the ultimate fate of mankind.
Stranger than fiction, there is another invasion going on right now.
Former member and founder of the Black Panther Party, Rep Bobby Rush (D-IL) has introduced a bill to the House Judiciary Committee, which is chaired by Rep John Conyers (D-MI). If his bill should morph into a law it will supplant enough of the Constitution to alter our way of life forever.
If HR 45 becomes law it will negate the second Amendment by transforming the right to keep and bear arms into a privilege controlled by the government; it will negate the fourth Amendment by permitting government gun hunters to raid any home in search of any unauthorized firearms; it will negate the fifth Amendment by depriving gun-owners of their property without due process of law and without just compensation; and finally, it will further negate the already shredded tenth amendment which at one time limited the powers of the Federal Government.
Can you imagine what will happen when the gun-collection police force goes out to collect everyones guns? What will you do? What will your neighbors do?
Regardless of how you feel about gun-control, you need to understand the threat when Constitutionally subversive bills are introduced into our legislative system. The Constitution is designed as the supreme law of our land. Within the margins of that freedom-inspired document is Article V, which spells out the provisions by which amendments can be proposed and ratified.
Yes, it requires serious effort. Changing the Constitution is a serious business.
To help us understand why we dont want Congress to make laws that supplant our freedoms and rights affirmed by the Constitution, lets play the same scenario using another right that you might be more fond of, lets say your right to free speech.
What if some congressman submitted a bill that required all citizens to have a federal license before they could legally own a computer?
The bill could be justified by stating that too many young people are being hurt by hateful words posted on the internet or in emails–an undeniable truth. Sponsors of the bill could claim that hate-speech kills–we need to protect our children. To foster public support, they could say that anyone who opposed the bill must want to hurt children.
Once the bill became law, anyone wanting a computer would be investigated by the Attorney Generals office to make sure they werent mentally ill or prone to say hateful things. Their library records, TV viewings, and anything they might have ever posted, emailed, or read would be reviewed to make sure they met the high standards of the Attorney General. What would be wrong with that?
Well, to begin with it is prohibited by the Constitution. You see, the Constitution is supposed to limit the power of the government. When government gets too powerful you get things like restrictions on owning typewriters as in Hitlers Germany, the Gulags as in the former USSR and things like, well things like H.R. 45.
If we the people believe the Constitution needs to be amended, there is a legal process to do that. That process is not via a bill. Elected officials are supposed to be stewards of our great nation. We did not put them in their offices to wage war on our freedoms. The Freedom Snatchers need to be stopped. Start today by attacking the pod known as H.R. 45.
Let your congressional representatives know how you feel. You dont have to say much, just tell them in your own words that as your representative they need to oppose H.R. 45 (Blair Holts Firearm Licensing and Record of Sales Act of 2009). If your representative doesnt listen to you, you owe it to yourself and your childrens future to vote them out of a job on the next election.

Dont give into these dark and spooky attempts to snatch your freedoms. For the time being, our Constitution is merely shaken and not completely broken, if we all do what we can to preserve, protect, and defend it we wont be left hanging as to the fate of mankind.
Abraham Lincoln said America was mankinds last great hope. H.R. 45 is anti-Constitutional and thus un-American, it must be stopped.
Dont be caught sleeping this time because when our Constitution is supplanted there will be no place left for any of us to run.
It just makes sense.
