Within hours of re-election, he moved to re-start the UN Small Arms Treaty which could implement gun control in the US that negates the 2nd amendment. Before the election, Feinstein (always under armed guard, herself) announced that once he won, she'd introduce an assault weapons ban worse than the Clinton ban that expired in 2004. One of the features we hear of is no grandfathering this time -which presumably means that the most popular rifle in America, the AR-15/M4 clones, would be confiscated. Door to door raids to round up guns? It would suck to be that SWAT team. There's probably around 20 million of these in individual's hands to round up.
I think the FBI statistics said that the last AWB may have influenced as much as 1% of crime.
instead of an Evil Black Rifle, it's a Cute Pink Rifle.)
This rifle is 100% legal in California because it is based on an "off-list" lower receiver made by Stag Arms and has no evil features at all, instead featuring a fixed stock instead of the evil collapsible stock, a muzzle brake in place of the vile flash-hider, and a MonsterMan Grip instead of the heinous and malicious plastic pistol grip. The C Products magazine looks like a 30 round magazine body but is permanently modified to only allow 10 rounds.Whenever any sportsman's group warned that the lifelong gun grabbers, like Obama and Holder, wanted to eliminate private ownership, they'd tell us we're paranoid. Now they're proving it, moving within hours of the election. Don't lull yourself into thinking that it will never pass congress because the electorate has changed. Doesn't matter if they don't care. Remember, these are the guys who appointed Sotomayor and Kagen to the Supreme Court, both of whom lied under oath about gun rights and voted against us in the very first case that came to them. Ever notice the administration's tendency to rule by executive order? Bet on it.
In the last debate, Obama said, "What I'm trying to do is to get a broader conversation about how do we reduce the violence generally. Part of it is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced. But part of it is also looking at other sources of the violence. Because frankly, in my hometown of Chicago, there's an awful lot of violence and they're not using AK-47s. They're using cheap handguns."
Yeah, Chicago is the murder capital these days. You have more of a chance of being killed there than as US military in Afghanistan. The reality is that cheap handguns are not shooting kids by themselves. The problem is the gang culture producing the feral kids that shoot other kids. Until they address the fact that their stupid progressive policies have destroyed the culture these kids grew up in, and take steps to fix that, there's going to be a problem with violence.
And that's just one of the things he's done in the last few days. Before the election, it's rumored Obama instructed the EPA to lighten up - best not to scare any Ohio or Pennsylvania voters - and prepare a November surprise.
Like most of you, surrender isn't in my style. My hobby for years was hundred mile bike rides, biathlons or running. Giving up when it hurts isn't my strongest point. That will probably get me killed soon, but for now we need to redouble our efforts. Give to the gun organizations: NRA-ILA, GOA, NAGR, SAF, JPFO or your local equivalent of Florida Carry - whichever you want or all of them. They all need to fight. If you can only give to one, local is better.
The Free Sh*t Army has the advantage that since they don't work they can occupy their congress critters offices or phone lines. I have a good senator and an evil one. The good one needs encouragement and reinforcement, the other needs discouragement.
You may recall that I, along with thousands, said that whomever we elected president would probably not be able to stop the coming economic collapse, just that with Obama it was likely to come faster. Nothing has changed.
Rig for collision. Seriously bad times are on the way.
I sometimes think the best thing that could happen would be a couple of megatons in certain areas of the country....ReplyDelete
Just going to pick a nit: the pink rifle still has a bayonet lug, which used to be a no-no in Californica, the last time I paid any attention to what goes on there, anyway.ReplyDelete
I'm hoping that Sheriffs and PDs here in the West/Northwest will either ignore or refuse to enforce any such crap. If not, read "Neither Predator Nor Prey" by Mark Spungin of WY to discover how some Americans will deal with an attempt to confiscate firearms. Sure, many will submit, but some of the LEOs who become involved in such an attempt will be survived by loved ones who will wish they hadn't.
I don't that folks are spending $1000's on firearms and ammo with the intent of handing them over should the "law" require same.ReplyDelete
I think they're taking the bet that there will be a grandfather clause and if you own it, they're not going to come take it.Delete
After all, the last ban turned a $400 gun into a $1200 gun. Nice profit, if you can get it. Want to buy an 800 or $1000 AR and sell it for $3000?
And the last view is just like the saying, "if you think it's time to bury your guns, it's time to dig them up". If they're going to outlaw guns, try to seize them, and start something, it's better to be armed in advance.
Based on his behavior prior to this election, and his feeling that this one gives him carte blanche, don't expect (I know _you_ don't, SiG) any grandfather clause, folks. If there is one, it won't last.Delete
Like California's AWB, where it was OK initially to buy an SKS, then, a few months later - after thousands had been purchased - they "changed" their minds and outlawed them, telling people they had to turn them in.
I seem to recall they were allowed to move them out of the state, if they chose. Want to send your guns somewhere outside of the country, this time?
