This isn’t a drill. The White House just announced that President Obama is preparing new gun control executive orders in response to the Oregon Umpqua community college shooting.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton said during a town hall event that if Congress won’t pass her gun agenda, she will implement it by executive order. Yes, she said she is willing to implement a universal registration program and ban semi-automatic weapons by executive order.
We’ll deal with that witch if and when we need to. But right now, we have a much more serious problem.
It is no coincidence that these executive orders were announced just days after Obama hinted that gun bans and confiscations were the only way to stop mass shootings. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand what Obama has in store.
Our last article created quite a stir. People accused us of lying in saying that Obama wanted gun bans and confiscations. But that is exactly what he is calling for.
He brought up the United Kingdom and Australia as model examples of how gun control can stop mass shootings. Well, guess what? Both countries ended up banning semi-automatic firearms and then having police confiscate the guns. Fact.
This isn’t the first time Obama has evoked Australia as a gun control model. He made the same policy recommendation on a radio show earlier this summer.
We know that this is Obama’s goal. In his eyes, the only way to combat gun violence is to take a large number of guns away from a large number of people. Just like they did in Australia and the United Kingdom. In 1996, Australian police confiscated 650,000 firearms, or roughly 20% of the country’s civilian arsenal at the time. In 1997, Great Britain confiscated 162,000 pistols from licensed gun owners.
Do you know what that means for the United States? If Obama copied Australia and you own five guns, say goodbye to one or more of them and don’t even think of getting your money back. Frankly, Obama’s solution would be to confiscate much more than 20% of the country’s guns.
And now, we have White House Spokesperson Josh Earnest announcing that the push to implement new gun control measures by executive order is on going. This comes on the heels of an announcement that Obama’s new Attorney General Loretta Lynch is also planning to implement new gun control regulations. All this is happening behind the scenes.
This President works around the clock to infringe on your Second Amendment rights. The wheel of gun control never stops turning. Aside from death and taxes, new gun control is the only other constant in Obama’s America.
I know that there are tons of things going on that grab your attention on a given day. Especially with politics, there are dozens of battles being fought at any given time.
I know that. But this is literally a matter of life and death.
If Obama gets his way and is allowed to implement his gun control executive order, there is no doubt that law-abiding Americans will be disarmed.
Obama’s plan is completely unconstitutional but we cannot afford to just wait for the courts to rule on this. Congress must intervene and put a stop to this and the only way that happens is if you demand it.
The President is counting on the majority of Americans not paying attention. That is the only way to sneak his gun control through. But now that you know, you have a responsibility and obligation to do something about it!
YES, OBAMA JUST CALLED FOR GUN CONFISCATIONS
There is nothing worse than having to write these articles. The day after a mass shooting, the last thing we want to do is get dragged into the fight for our gun rights.
Today should be a time to heal and a time to learn what exactly happened. But instead, Obama is more interested in calling for even more gun control.
You see, the Oregon shooter got all of his guns legally from gun stores, meaning that background checks were performed. And even though he had an AR-15 on him, he only fired his pistol during the shooting. None of the Democrats’ gun control proposals would have stopped this.
It never ceases to amaze me how liberal politicians can come up gun control proposals before we even learn how the scumbag shooter got his gun. We didn’t even know the suspect’s name and Barack Obama was already in front of a microphone saying that this is why we need universal background checks.
I guess he forgot that Oregon has mandatory background checks for all gun purchases…
In his speech, Obama said that there are ways to stop these shootings and he turned to the United Kingdom and Australia as examples of what we should do. Both those countries confiscated their citizens’ firearms.
Yes. Obama just said he wants to confiscate the nation’s firearms.
Here’s Obama’s statement from earlier in the week:
“We know other countries in response to one mass shooting have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours, Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know there are ways to prevent it.”
Yes, we know what they did. They used police to confiscate the guns. The Australians reduced gun crime by seizing 1 million legally owned firearms and destroying them. For years, Democrats have been saying that they have no interest in taking away anyone’s guns. Surprise! That’s what they’ve wanted all along!
But what if I told you Obama was already hard at work implementing a confiscation program?
Here’s some of the programs that the Obama administration has tried to implement in the last year…
– The VA has been caught red-handed trying to confiscate veterans’ firearms without cause or due process.
– The Social Security Administration copied the VA’s program and began implementing a program to disarm elderly Americans.
– The ATF tried to ban a type of ammunition used in AR-15 rifles, the most popular gun in America.
– Obama administration officials have teamed up the United Nations to implement the UN Arms Trade Treaty on US soil.
None of these stories really made it into any of the major newspapers or news shows. But now, the goal is unavoidable.
The Obama administration is coming for your guns and he is calling on Congress to keep confiscation on the table!
Listen, we don’t get to pick our battles with this. The price of liberty and maintaining the Second Amendment is eternal vigilance.
When Obama was interviewed earlier this year, he said that the biggest regret of his Presidency was not being able to disarm the American people.
YOU helped make that happen! That’s because you fought tooth and nail against every gun control measure that came down the pike.
Well, I am asking you to answer this call once again to defend the Second Amendment!
