Democrat-Controlled Congress Has New Gun Control Plans

, , , ,

Barack Obama carefully avoided advocacy of new gun control measures during his presidential campaign, but that does not imply that there is the slightest likelihood of his vetoing any gun control legislation emanating from the new Congress.

Alan Korwin warns about H.R. 1022, the renewal of the (so-called) Assault Weapons Ban, introduced by gun control fanatic Carolyn McCarthy and 67 co-sponsors in February 2007. Korwin predicts that, in the new Congress, the same bill will include a much more spectacular feature.

Slipping below the radar (or under the short-term memory cap), the Democrats have already leaked a gun-ban list, even under the Bush administration when they knew full well it had no chance of passage (HR 1022, 110th Congress). It serves as a framework for the new list the Bradys plan to introduce shortly.

I have an outline of the Brady’s current plans and targets of opportunity, I’m working on getting that news out asap after these ban lists, probably be ready in the next few days. It’s horrific. They’re going after the courts, regulatory agencies, firearms dealers and statutes in an all out effort to restrict we the people. They’ve made little mention of criminals. …

Attorney General gets carte blanche to ban guns at will:

Under the proposal, the U.S. Attorney General can add any “semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General.” Note that Obama’s pick for this office (Eric Holder, confirmation hearing set for Jan. 15) wrote a brief in the Heller case supporting the position that you have no right to have a working firearm in your own home.

In making this determination, the bill says, “there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any federal law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and a firearm shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.”

In plain English this means that ANY firearm ever obtained by federal officers or the military is not suitable for the public.

That presumption can be challenged only by suing the federal government over each firearm it decides to ban, in a court it runs with a judge it pays. This virtually dismisses the principles of the Second Amendment.

The last part is particularly clever, stating that a firearm doesn’t have a sporting purpose just because it can be used for sporting purpose — is that devious or what? And of course, “sporting purpose” is a rights infringement with no constitutional or historical support whatsoever, invented by domestic enemies of the right to keep and bear arms to further their cause of disarming the innocent.

WorldNetDaily takes Korwin’s posting and accompanies it with a big brass band.

A perfect storm is developing for Second Amendment opponents that could allow President-elect Barack Obama’s choice for attorney general – Eric Holder – to “ban guns at will” despite the 2008 affirmation from the U.S. Supreme Court that U.S. citizens have a right to bear arms.

And this particular threat is only the first of what will undoubtedly be many.

As it turns out, Obama has become the best gun salesman in history. Just try and find parts for an AR15 right now – any high capacity Sporting firearm (as that is what they are used for outside the military) has either gone up in price, become impossible to obtain, or both. They are determined to turn us into criminals, and take jobs away from those in the firearms industry (which doesn’t seem such a good idea right at the moment does it?) In fact, the firearms industry is the only industry out there running third shifts to meet demand.

Well look at the new “stimulous” bill just passed. They are going to make your psychological records available to the government to see if you are elegible to own a firearm. Most of these people who would be ban from owning guns are proud men who fought in the military and who were found to have ptsd ( post tramatic stress disorder). Do these men and women of congress really want to ban guns from the people who used these weapons to protect there freedoms? You tell me.

Why is it nobody actually researches this stuff? More fear mongering from the gun crowd.

Really, relax. I’m RKBA, but running around with your head cut off about every bill from 20 years prior to know that never even makes it past a single vote is a tremendous waste of time.

Morgan is right on this one: Obama is the best gun salesman in the nation. I cannot find any .40 S&W at my gun shop. 9mm has been gone for weeks. Ammo is vanishing into thing air it seems like because so many people are stocking up. My gunshop can’t get me a FiveseveN for at least four months (he tells me). Other guns are on six and twelve month waiting list. It’s ridiculous how fast those things are going.

Incredible considering everybody is hurting for money. The Dems need to cool it with the taxing before the Cons rise against ’em. Maybe that would be good, we can finally get a strong third party in congress.
