When gun confiscation begins, ALL politicians must be viewed as enemies of freedom until proven otherwise

by Doug Book,  staff writer

As the far left pass into law unconstitutional and unforgivable statutes by which to confiscate the firearms of the American people, a number of gun rights supporters believe the reclamation of our 2nd Amendment rights must depend upon the continued election of declared,  pro-2nd Amendment Republicans. 

Unfortunately, such is the rose-colored-glasses thinking of individuals either too foolish, too gullible or too cowardly to recognize the perpetual treachery of elected Republicans for what it truly is— a politician’s perception of political necessity taking precedence over his duty to support the God given rights of the American people.

And never mind the argument that politicians who vote for gun confiscation will be in imminent danger of losing their jobs and therefore get what they deserve. That is irrelevant to the situation. For such politicians are traitors to the nation and to the American people. They are intent upon eliminating a God given, constitutionally codified and protected right! Therefore, reclaiming their elected office ceases to be an issue of any import as the very fact of their vote to abolish the right to keep and bear arms means they have lost all right to be a lawmaker in a free country.

In fact, it is not the right to their job which has been forfeited, but their right to continued existence. For as enemies of freedom and liberty, they have become implacable enemies of the American public. And no American has the obligation to tolerate the continued efforts or existence of anyone whose clear purpose is the enslavement of American citizens. Any laws implemented by such traitors are void and like all unconstitutional, illegal legislation, need not be obeyed.  

In short, these politicians have already forfeited their jobs. Upon the implementation of gun confiscation, it shall be up to Americans to decide if they have also forfeited their lives.

Over the years, the Republicans Party has displayed nothing if not a well-known willingness to “go along to get along.” The importance Republican politicians place on retaining their jobs and power rather than doing what is right—protecting the Constitution by honoring their oath of office—has proven that no political party should ever be depended upon to secure the rights and liberty of Americans. In the end, that is OUR responsibility. Too long we have entrusted politicians with the care of our liberty and watched as it has been either trampled or stolen away. It is long past time we demand politicians follow the dictates of the Constitution or be removed from office. And NOT by the next vote, but by force.

God given rights are not negotiable. They cannot be bartered away by politicians in search of some nebulous “greater good.”  And Americans must never permit the importance of their rights to be re-defined downward from the meaning and weight given them by the Founders.  For in so doing we lose our constitutional republic and become no more than the slaves the left is so intent upon making us.

 

Firearm dealers told to ignore federal law, begin de facto registration of gun owners

by Doug Book,  staff writer

Barack Obama’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) has sent an open letter to all Federal Firearms License (FFL) holders/licensed gun dealers in the United States, recommending they “…enhance public safety and assist law enforcement by encouraging and facilitating transfers of firearms between private individuals through their business.” In short, FFL holders are being told to perform background checks and keep records of private gun sales between American citizens, EVEN THOUGH federal law may NOT require that they do so! (1)

According to current federal law, gun sales between private individuals must be handled by FFL holders ONLY if the private parties are residents of different states. Residents of the same state may conclude the sale of a firearm without submitting to a background check, having the sale recorded or paying a fee to a FFL holder/licensed gun store. Yet in the ATF’s January 16th letter to gun dealers, this vitally important distinction in federal law is ignored.

Why would the ATF suddenly “suggest” to gun dealers that they unnecessarily intrude themselves into private sales not currently controlled by federal law?

Six of the 23 executive actions recommended by Obama to curb gun violence involve the “sharing” of background check information throughout the executive branch bureaucracy. If gun dealers in the 50 states begin making it known to customers now that private sales must be handled through their stores—regardless of the true language of the law—it is hoped by gun grabbers that when the law really DOES change and Americans lose the right of private sales, no one will notice and no one will complain! The American public will be used to having their transactions recorded by the federal government! (2)

It is an underhanded tactic which FFL holders will be FORCED to impose upon the American people. After all, gun store owners depend for their very existence upon the good will of the ATF–the government organization which can revoke the gun dealer’s Federal Firearms License, effectively putting him out of business should he not toe the ATF line. So when the ATF “recommends” a FFL holder misrepresent federal law to a would-be private seller, he will do so or risk losing his investment and his livelihood.  

How great a danger to the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people does this contempt for existing federal law represent? Gun Owners of America has sent an alert to its members, warning that “increasingly ATF is going into gun dealers and Xeroxing all of the 4473’s…” Each of these forms represents a gun sale. It is ILLEGAL for the ATF to copy them or make records of them except in a criminal investigation. For making a record of these forms is the equivalent of beginning a planned, federal registration of gun owners!

Clearly the government intends to record every gun sale it possibly can, regardless of the law. For recorded sales mean information as to who owns a weapon and where it can be confiscated when the time comes!

Make no mistake: Barack Obama is coming after the guns of the American people. We will stop him by any means necessary.

Americans may soon be permitted to RENT guns but not own them

by Doug Book,  staff writer

The widely anticipated senate bill soon to be introduced by gun-banner extraordinaire Diane Feinstein will do far more than eliminate “assault weapons” (AW’s) and “high capacity” magazines.

According to a summary on the senator’s website, concealed carry license holder Feinstein–who proposed an outright ban on all handguns while packing her own for self-defense—will demand that owners of guns affected by her legislation: pay a $200 fee for EACH banned weapon owned; submit pictures, fingerprints and register AW’s with the ATF; have local law enforcement attest to the owner’s identity and specify the address at which each weapon will be kept.

But the NRA reports that the senator intends to go much further than bans or registration. For assessment of an acquired draft of Feinstein’s bill reveals a provision demanding that guns defined as assault weapons be immediately turned over to the federal government upon the current owner’s death.   

Under existing Federal Firearm Legislation, owners of AW’s are permitted to sell their weapons outright, modify them or pass them along to heirs. But not anymore. For should Feinstein’s bill become law, AW’s will be grandfathered into the possession of their current owners and “…[will] remain with [that] …owner until [his] death, at which point they [will] be forfeited to the government.” (1)

In short, our political ruling class would literally appropriate millions of “assault weapons,” rent the freshly acquired firearms back to their original owners and then seize them after those flagrantly cheated individuals have died. 

It is a very clever scheme of mortality-based confiscation!

Registration of the appropriated weapons will be conducted according to the National Firearms Act of 1934, the law which among other things, regulates ownership of machine guns and silencers. Fortunately the $200 per weapon fee has historically been charged only on the transfer of a weapon rather than on a yearly basis. But of course those banned, “high capacity” magazines must also be taken into account—and taxed.

Feinstein’s bill has yet to be completed, though she has vowed to read it on the Senate floor by January 3rd. Given the massive, nationwide dissent and bitter animosity which would surely result should the contents of the bill be published in an open and honest form, it’s possible that, like ObamaCare, congress will have to pass the legislation before the American public finds out what’s in it.

One thing is certain–gun owners will acquire many new responsibilities while preserving very few rights.

For example, Feinstein and Co. might demand holders of “assault weapons” purchase some form of renter’s insurance in order to protect themselves from legal responsibility should a gun be stolen and used in a crime. Naturally, the legal responsibility would be levied either by Congress itself or one of its partners in crime—the ATF comes to mind. After all, it would be a swell way to pick up a few bucks while encouraging a “pre-demise” weapon turn-in by owners who wish to avoid legal exposure or the expense of congressionally mandated insurance coverage.  Imagine the required purchase of an “ATF-approved” policy at $500 per year per weapon. A protection racket to make even Capone blush!

Will the Feinstein bill succeed? Almost certainly not. But consider how much closer it will likely come to passage now than a year ago. And what will happen after the next brutal murder spree deliberately facilitated by the left and its “gun-free zone” legislation?  And the next and the next?

Feinstein’s legislation reveals what the left is determined to achieve, sooner or later and by any means necessary. Those who wish to remain free must be prepared to do anything necessary to defeat them.

Their empty attacks on the NRA prove media dimwits believe their own lies about guns

 

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

When National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” the collective gasp from the media must have been heard for miles.

These pitifully ignorant people don’t understand research and certainly have no intellectual curiosity. They went ballistic when confronted with the fact that they had to share responsibility for promoting a culture of violence and failing to honestly report the true damage Hollywood’s movies and rap music and “revolving door justice” have done especially to young people.

The media savaged LaPierre but overlooked the Code Pink when they interrupted him carrying signs saying, “NRA KILLING OUR KIDS,” and screaming that the gun rights group has “blood on its hands.” They believe Code Pink because it makes them feel good about themselves.

A nitwit named Hugo Schwyzer has told the media Adam Lanza killed 20 children and 6 adults to play his “man card” and the media believe that because they don’t want to look at the facts LaPierre has shoved under their noses.

They believe Piers Morgan when he tweeted “Coming to a town near you, courtesy of the NRA – Gunfights at the US school corral.” This shameless self-promoter is a man whose own country suffered the slaughter of 16 children in a grade school because there was no good guy with a gun to stop the animal who was shooting them. They believed him because they are as stupid and shameless as he is.

They mock LaPierre’s facts and believe an empty headed moron like Arianna Huffington when she accuses The NRA of wanting an, “Armed insurrection against the US government….” because that is easier than facing their own complicity in the violent culture they promote and worship.

Perhaps the biggest lie the media is swallowing is their own insistence that the American people are with them in blaming these horrific crimes on: guns, the NRA, Ronald Reagan, George Bush or whoever they want to blame rather than the mentally ill killers who commit them.

A new Gallup survey shows 53% of Americans believe putting police officers in schools is the best way to stop these crimes and 42% believe banning assault guns is the answer. Another 36% believes such bans would have no effect at all.

The numbers don’t lie: banning guns means more crime; more innocent victims and the Left knows it


By Kevin “Coach” Collins

As threaten as the Second Amendment looks right now, in the end new attacks on our freedom to own guns will fail. The numbers will once again prove the Left’s arguments are built on lies and distortions.   

In the coming weeks disingenuous liberals will try to use the tragic murders of 20 children and 6 staff at a Connecticut grade school to justify curtailing our Second Amendment rights to own firearms. That this horrific crime was committed by a likely paranoid schizophrenic will mean nothing to the gun grabbers. That the ACLU recently defeated a Connecticut law which might have involuntarily put the monster that killed these innocent victims in an institution safely away from the rest of us, will mean nothing to them either.  

In knee jerk fashion they will claim anyone who does not want to limit Second Amendment rights must be in favor of killing innocent children and the media will run with these lies.

Both the liberals and their media mouthpieces will ignore any evidence (however strong) that derails their cherished ultimate goal of confiscating all guns in America. They want to bring us closer to the “enlightened” position on firearms ownership held around the world and especially Europe.

The Left will ignore the data from Kennesaw Georgia where a city ordinance which has been in effect for thirty years requires each home to have a gun.   

 Kennesaw consistently reports crime rates below those of the national average.  Moreover during the years immediately following the 1982 passage of its firearms requirement, home burglary rates dropped by 82% and other crimes followed suit.  

There will be no discussion of the mass murders of innocent unarmed people in gun control happy Norway where 77 people were methodically slain by a single armed killer. No one will reference the 2007 murder of 32 innocent unarmed students and facility members at Virginia Tech at the hands of a killer who knew he had nothing to fear from his defenseless victims on the proudly “gun free” campus.  These incidents don’t “fit.”

Nevertheless with these ugly stories sitting just subsurface the bluster from the Left will eventually die out. The whole process will be carried out so that liberals can get fresh material for fund raising letters. Second Amendment supporters will have a similar edge in fund raising.
