Barack Obama is in his last year as president. He has declared that his effort to “remake” this country means he will try his utmost to implement his most draconian and outrageous goals, one of which is the disarming of America. There is no other way to describe it, and Democratic lawmakers have bought into this absolutely unconstitutional objective, in spite of the objection of their constituents and their declaration to uphold the laws of the land when they were sworn into office.
They have worked hard to indoctrinate children in public schools to believe that guns are “evil,” and that somehow protecting ones life, family and property is unacceptable and improper. They have garbled the language to convince the uninformed that certain types of guns with benign, decorative features are equivalent to military weapons which must be excised from public ownership. Make no mistake, the ultimate goal of the Left is to completely disarm America, an aim the founding fathers adamantly opposed as a sure path leading to tyranny by the government elite.
The attempts to date have been less overt, but still chilling. Government “watch lists” prohibiting gun ownership have been created, with no accountability for how one ends up on such a list, and an impossible bureaucratic mess to be removed from it. The federal government has pushed banks to stop making loans to licensed gun dealers in order to make it impossible to run a retail gun business. And the perpetual call for more invasive and comprehensive “background checks” has been proposed, ensuring that when the government decides to round up all the guns, they will simply check their list and pay a visit to the homes of gun owners.
New Law Will Make Most Guns Illegal
Democrat lawmakers in Congress recently created bill H.R. 4269, which would completely undo the Second Amendment. The title states its clear objective:
“To regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.”
The title is broad enough to encompass almost any gun the Left chooses to prohibit, including rifles, shotguns,and handguns. It would make it illegal to own any magazine that exceeds a capacity of ten rounds. It completely bans any semiautomatic rifle that has a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
“(i) A pistol grip.
“(ii) A forward grip.
“(iii) A folding, telescoping, or detachable stock.
“(v) A barrel shroud.
“(vi) A threaded barrel.
Of course none of these features have anything to do with the operation or deadliness of the weapon. But they allow Democrat lawmakers to label them as “assault weapons” which are therefore illegal. Even handguns with a magazine holding more than ten rounds could be included as an “assault weapon.” In a later section of the bill, it states:
Section 3, (v) (1) It shall be unlawful for a person to import, sell, manufacture, transfer, or possess, in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce, a semiautomatic assault weapon.
The bill was introduced on December 16, 2015 when congress was certain that the public was distracted by upcoming Christmas celebrations. It has 123 co-sponsors, all of whom are Democrats. As often as they have denied that their objective is to totally disarm America, it is clear in this bill that this is exactly their objective. Perhaps it is best that the lie is fully exposed and the public is aware that the Democrat Party is fully engaged in confiscating legal and lawful arms that American citizens keep for their personal protection. But we must act. We have been warned, and now we need to make sure that Democrats and President Obama pay a big price for this outrageous behavior.
