A post that my friend Kat wrote up on her blog has me damn irate right now. It talks about how “strike teams” are going into breaking into people’s homes in Iowa to “check for structural damage” – yet, there are people in these homes .. the people who LIVE in these homes! They are making the people leave their homes against their will. Now when the hell did the government get “permission” to boot someone out of their home without their permission. (link)
In America we have something called the 4th Amendment; it states:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.” (link)
These “strike groups” have NO warrant and NO reasoning to BREAK INTO A HOME! Plus, according to an article I read “People who attempt to gain access to their home before it has been “cleared” by authorities are being apprehended, and those who attempt to drive around police checkpoints that have been set up in the affected areas are arrested at gunpoint.” People can’t even go back to their OWN home!
If they tried that with me? They’d find the barrel of a gun right in their face. This is complete bullshit. Where the hell has the FREEDOM that our ancestors (and our current military) fought so hard for? I don’t much care if the government thinks it’s doing the “right” thing, because with their current track record? I HIGHLY DOUBT IT.
Ps. Thomas Jefferson said that the main reason for citizens to be armed was to protect themselves from tyrannical government. Sounds like this is the PERFECT situation for owning that gun.
