Over the weekend, a mother was able to protect two twin girls because of her 2nd Amendment rights. During a home invasion, the mother hid her children in a crawlspace inside the home, while an unknown man forced his way into the home. The suspect was shot by the mother after discovering her and the children in their hiding place.
Because of her bravery and responsible gun ownership, this mother saved herself and her children from what could have been a deadly situation.
However, if the guns are removed from the law-abiding American citizens, incidents like this will be a common occurrence:
In 2011, the San Francisco Police shot an unarmed man over bus fare. They claimed, without any evidence, that “the suspect fired at the officers, and the officers fired back.” Witnesses to the event contradicted the police’s account of the events.
Witnesses said that “the man was running he had his hands up in the air, and then hit the ground when he was shot.”
While the officers maintained that the man was armed, they also claimed that “witnesses could have taken the victim’s weapon when the man collapsed, or the suspect could have thrown the gun somewhere during the pursuit.”
In the video of the event, one witness picked up a shiny object near the victim that turned out to be a cell phone. The police never found the gun they alleged the victim had.
The victim was shot in the neck, collapsed, and shot several more times. He lay on the ground, bleeding to death as the police focused on keeping the on-lookers away from the dying man. The victim died of his wounds without assistance from the police how caused his wounds.
Back in 2008, presidential hopeful Barack Obama promised voters in Virginia that “When you all go home and you’re talking to your buddies and you say, ah ‘He wants to take my gun away.’ You’ve heard it here; I’m on television so everybody knows it. I believe in the Second Amendment. I believe in people’s lawful right to bear arms. I will not take your shotgun away. I will not take your rifle away. I won’t take your handgun away.”
Since that statement, it has become clear that Obama simply and with devious charisma, lies to the American public in order to achieve his agendas.
The Obama administration is requesting proposals from cabinet members on stringent gun-control legislation to broaden the already unimaginable recommendations made by Senator Dianne Feinstein.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) says they have obtained a draft of Feinstein’s bill which seeks to redefine what is an “assault weapon” to include a more encompassing amount of guns. There would also be an initiative of forcing Americans to register their guns with the federal government under the National Firearms Act (NFA). This would give the federal government authority to confiscate weapons that were identified in violent acts.
Feinstein hopes to:
• Restrict the modifications to firearms available to citizens
• Classify specific modifications as illegal
• Restricting the acquisition of rocket launchers
With the redefining of assault weapons, semi-automatic, centerfire, rimfire rifles will be illegal; as well as the M1 Carbine and Ruger Mini-14. No more than 10 round magazines will be available.
The NFA will collect taxes of an estimated $200 per gun purchased as well as the owner file their fingerprints, photograph, address and obtain permission before taking the gun across state lines.
In December of 2012, Obama announced the creation of an Interagency Gun Control Task Force. The new task force, headed by Vice President Joe Biden, will include current Obama administration members, representatives of special interest groups, law enforcement and gun rights advocates.
This task force is expected to produce viable proposals that can be included in the President’s State of the Union Address. Obama has vowed to stop gun-related violence with the assistance of public outrage filtered through political posturing to create binding legislation that will diminish the power of the 2nd Amendment.
With reports and studies, the new task force will use existing gun laws as a template in order to implement more stringent measures, cultural influences and mental health services to combat gun-related violence.
Obama referred to the 2nd Amendment as a “strong tradition of gun ownership that’s been handed down from generation to generation” which reveals how he plans to remove its power through Congressional approval of a bill that would revive bans on assault weapons, high capacity ammunition as well as creating circumstances that restrict gun sales at gun shows without background checks.
Such actions will involve circumventing the influence of the NRA; possibly by coercing retailers like Wal-Mart to stop selling guns and ammunition.
The GCTF has suggested that Obama use his infamous power of executive order to mandate gun-control if Congress cannot push Feinstein’s bill through. Obama stated previously: “I’ll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this, because what choice do we have?”
Lobbyist groups like the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, (MAIG) headed by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, has been in contact with Biden to make sure that the 2nd Amendment is eradicated. Bloomberg said that Obama could use the “stroke of his pen” to make it even more difficult for Americans to become gun owners, empowering the US government beyond the intentions of the US Constitution and our Founding Fathers.
Attorney General Eric Holder also stated that gun-control “may be imposed by an executive order.” Holder also said: “The Obama administration will consider executive actions and specific proposals for legislation as part of its gun policy response to the school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, U.S., Attorney General Eric Holder said on Wednesday.”
Boston Mayor Tomas M. Menino, member of MAIG, announced that Vice President Joe Biden confirmed that gun control legislation will be passed by the end of January. Menino said: “[Biden] said, ‘Tommy, I guarantee you, we’ll get it done by the end of January.’ They’re going to get it done.”
Pat Buchannan, former senior advisor to several former US presidents, said on an appearance on the McLaughlin Group, that “there would be a revolution in this country” is the gun-control legislation were passed in Washington.
