As gun owners know, our Muslim, Marxist President has been doing his best to take guns away from the American people. He has tried for six years to force Congress to do his bidding and violate the 2nd Amendment. To its credit Congress has pushed back, not interfering with the law abiding exercising the right given them by God and protected in the Constitution.
After San Bernardino, a city 30 miles from my home and the hometown of my wife, it did not take long for Democrats to respond as they always do, by claiming: The killings were the fault of the guns and therefore, no one should have one. Yet not even a front page, Guns are Evil editorial in the New York Times could convince Americans that they should abandon the right to keep and bear arms.
Petula Dvorak of the Washington Post has decided that “Evil Republicans” are to blame for gun crime because they respect the 2nd Amendment. According to Ms. Dvorak more Gun Free Zones are the answer. Posting a sign apparently affords a guarantee of safety to those behind it; just ask any assortment of progressives and socialists. But maybe we should ask the children at Sandy Hook, the writers at Charlie Hebdo, or the county workers in San Bernardino how well that works. Barack Obama, our resident scholar of constitutional law has proclaimed that these attacks take place more often in the US than in any other nation. But that isn’t the case; Norway is first, followed by Finland, Slovakia, Israel, and Switzerland. Sorry, Evergreen, but your numbers lie again.
Democrats have spent decades trying to separate law abiding Americans from their guns. Just after his re-election, Obama issued 23 executive actions designed to prevent the American people from owning firearms. The National Instant Criminal Background Check system (NICS) is being used by the federal government to create a national database–a registry of gun owners along with the weapons they’ve purchased. Although strictly illegal, this activity has been admitted by federal officials and openly reported in the news.
Obama’s latest scheme involves an attempt to destroy gun manufacturers. Because gun sales have skyrocketed, Obama has decided to issue a vendetta against Smith and Wesson, his weapon of choice, the Securities and Exchange Commission. He is using the public advocate of the state of New York to investigate whether Smith and Wesson has made adequate disclosures in its financial statements. The public advocate, Letitia James has stated that the SEC “should investigate whether Smith and Wesson misrepresented or omitted information about how often its products are involved in crimes and what it has done to keep its product out of the hands of criminals.”
I would appreciate someone explaining to me how any company can be made responsible for the deliberate misuse of its products! Smith and Wesson does in fact provide training and a gun lock with each gun sold and no one can realistically explain what more they should do.
This is, of course, nothing but a witch hunt; an attempt by this President to intimidate those who manufacture products of which he does not approve. Barack has one year remaining in which to post royal proclamations, targeting anyone not sufficiently subservient to his wishes. I wonder if Hillary appreciates The One creating even greater determination throughout the country to prevent another dedicated leftist entering the White House?
