When Will You Speak Up?

Most are familiar with the refrain written by Lutheran minister Martin Niemöller about the cowardice of German Radiointellectuals who watched the rise of Nazi extremism and did nothing. The poem starts out, "First they came for the Communists, but I did not speak up, because I was not a Communist."  READ HERE

Scott, a listener of Tom Gresham's Gun Talk (radio) took that epic poem and applied it to the purging so in vogue with the Far Left -- calling for the confiscation of whatever group of guns they deem to be unworthy at the moment. 

It's a reminder that today is always the day to speak up. To show up. To pay up. ~ Tom

First, they came for the full autos
And I did not speak out
Because I did not own a full auto.

Then they came for the ARs
And I did not speak out
Because I did not own an AR.

Then they came for the rest of the semi-autos
And I did not speak out
Because I did not own a semi-auto.

Then they came for the revolvers and pump shotguns
And I thought about speaking out - 
Because I started getting concerned about my rights.

Then they came for us
And we had no guns left
To make them listen

Thanks, Scott.
