He wants to limit private gun ownership to “Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets … Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns [and] Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds.”
“We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers,” Bateman threatens. So much for the illusion of civilian control of the military, although it does drive home the fear the Founders had of a standing army.
“That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes,” he explains.
“Hopefully,” but not necessarily, Colonel? Will you also wait for my heirs?
“When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them,” he dictates. “Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.”
While he doesn’t flesh out how all this will be enforced, he does offer some chilling clues.
“My entire adult life has been dedicated to the deliberate management of violence,” he explains. “There are no two ways around that fact. My job, at the end of the day, is about killing. I orchestrate violence.
“I am really good at my job,” he self-assesses.
Slams through Plastic Gun Ban Reauthorization
The battle continues, and now moves to the Senate
“There is opposition to changing existing law from conservative lawmakers and gun rights groups such as Gun Owners of America.” — USA Today, December 3, 2013
Someone once said that the only thing anyone ever learns from history is that no one ever learns anything from history.
Straight from bumbling the shut down, the House leadership yesterday, by a voice vote, slammed through a straight ten-year reauthorization of the poorly drafted 1988 plastic gun ban.
At least, argue House Republicans, this “straight authorization” of a bad law will prohibit New York Democrat Chuck Schumer from using the reauthorization as a vehicle to enact new, more extensive gun control.
But the House leadership has now handed Schumer a legislative vehicle for passing his gun control. This means he and Harry Reid could choose to take their ban on 3-D printer guns -– which, by the way, would also ban many metal gun manufacturers -– and send it back to the House.
Just hours after the House reauthorized the anti-gun law, Schumer held a press event in support of expanding the plastic gun ban.
If they do this, then Boehner and his leadership team will once again be swimming in a river of pain –- inflicted by a liberal media that finally sees an opportunity for passing its much-desired gun control agenda.
So the first thing we’re doing is to organize a Senate filibuster of any Schumer effort to pass and/or expand the House bill.
Given that the Senate is currently bogged down in a fight over the defense authorization legislation, we may be able to make it very difficult for Schumer to use the House-passed bill as a vehicle for new gun control.
So please stay tuned. We thank you for all your activism up to this point. But just realize that this battle is not over yet.
GOA IN THE MEDIA
Meanwhile, GOA Director of Communications Erich Pratt authored the Opposing View this morning in USA Today.
Among other things, Pratt argued that the plastic gun ban is an unconstitutional infringement of our liberties that is not only ineffective, but could eventually be expanded by an anti-gun administration to ban even more guns.
But what about the issue of smuggling guns onto planes?
Pratt says that renewing a ban on plastic firearms will “not stop criminals from making them or stealing them,” any more than Chicago’s gun restrictions have been effective in stopping shootings there.
Not only that, says Pratt, “smuggling guns onto planes will still be against the law, with or without a plastic gun ban.” And airport X-ray machines will still be able to detect them.
Bottom line, says Pratt, Congress solved the problem of terrorists carrying weapons onto planes after 9/11 — not through additional gun bans, but by “allowing pilots to use guns to defend themselves and their passengers.”
Again, you can read the entire column here.
Really you towel headed son of a pig?
I don’t think so!!
Leading off a report on Monday’s NBC Today, White House correspondent Peter Alexander skeptically observed: “The Obama administration says it met it’s own goal of significantly improving the HealthCare.gov website, but that’s the easy part. That’s like kind of giving yourself a passing grade.” At the end of segment, he noted insurance companies warning of the “logistical nightmare” caused by inaccurate information being entered into the ObamaCare database. Despite such critical analysis of the health care law in the nearly 2-minute report, by Nightly News that evening, anchor Brian Williams reduced the news to a mere 28 seconds, emphasizing only the positive: “We have an update now on the HealthCare.gov website. It is now working better and faster, as the White House promised it would by now. But they say they know it is still far from perfect. By 5:30 this evening Eastern Time, the website had logged 750,000 visitors so far today. That’s getting closer to that 800,000 daily user goal the rebooted site is supposed to be able to handle.”
In a segment on Sunday’s NBC Meet the Press that host David Gregory laughably billed as an ObamaCare “reality check,” he invited two of the law’s biggest supporters to deliver White House spin, former administration health policy advisor and brother of the President’s former chief of staff Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel and liberal Washington Post blog editor Ezra Klein. Referring to the supposed fix to HealthCare.gov, Gregory teed up Emanuel: “Is it good enough progress?” Emanuel predictably replied: “I think it’s good enough progress. Clearly, just like Google and Facebook and all the internet sites are constantly tweaking their sites, constantly improving them, this one still has a ways to go. But it is certainly working reasonably well….So I think actually we are going in the right direction.”
On Monday’s PoliticsNation on MSNBC, host Al Sharpton and the Washington Post‘s Dana Milbank mocked the Republican National Committee for the wording of a tweet that the group sent out marking the anniversary of Civil Rights Movement icon Rosa Parks defying racist Jim Crow laws: “Today we remember Rosa Parks’ bold stand and her role in ending racism.” Sharpton picked up on liberal entities interpreting the tweet to be suggesting that racism has already ended, and, without even noting that the RNC sent out a second tweet a few hours later to placate critics by changing the wording, Sharpton pounced as he teased the segment: “Plus this weekend, the RNC declared that racism is over. Racism is no more. Yes. Doesn’t make sense to me, either.” Milbank: “Look, you’ve got a Republican leadership in Washington, and then you’ve got the Tea Party, but, and that’s certainly where the latter is certainly where the racism is bubbling up right now.”
On Sunday’s NBC Meet the Press, chief White House correspondent Chuck Todd noted that “the most interesting thing” in an Obama administration progress report on the malfunctioning HealthCare.gov website was the claim that “The team is operating with private sector velocity and effectiveness.” Todd proclaimed that statement to be “an indictment on the whole idea of government as a solution.” Moments later, his fellow NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell fretted: “…now they are at risk of losing the credibility of government as an agent of change for a generation.”
Monday’s CBS Evening News and Tuesday’s CBS This Morning both underlined the continuing problems with HealthCare.gov, even after the Obama administration claimed “it met its deadline to make HealthCare.gov work smoothly for the vast majority of shoppers”. Meanwhile, the network’s competitors at NBC hyped the supposed positive news about the ObamaCare website. Wyatt Andrews noted how the White House “says that 375,000 people tried to shop on HealthCare.gov,” but soon touted how “that high a number created some problems”. The following morning, Major Garrett reported that “the challenges are not over” for the online health insurance clearinghouse.

Christmas With the Obamas
We recently told you about Toni Townes-Whitley, the senior vice president at CGI Federal, which was awarded the no-bid contract to build the $678 million Healthcare.gov fiasco. Toni was a classmate of Michelle Obama (Princeton ’85) and they share membership in the Association of Black Princeton. Evidently, the two are still close friends. Townes-Whitley, in a Facebook album titled “Christmas with the Obamas,” published a personal photo from inside the White House in 2010. Daniel Greenfield quips, “A 600 million dollar website that doesn’t work made by a company with a lousy track record and a top executive who’s a pal of the First Lady. It’s the free market at work. I blame the private sector.”
Disdain for our Constitution
St. John’s University economist Northrup Buechner writes in Forbes: “Obama’s disdain for the Constitution means we are at risk of losing our Republic. … The shocking fact is that our whole system of representative government depends on it being led by an individual who believes in it; who thinks it is valuable; who believes that a government dedicated to the protection of individual rights is a noble ideal. What if he does not? Mr. Obama is moving our government away from its traditional system of checks and balances and toward the one-man-rule that dominates third world countries. He has said that he wants a fair country — implying that, as it stands, the United States is not a fair country — an unprecedented calumny committed against a country by its own leader.”
2-Year-Olds on Their Own
Columnist Jeannie DeAngelis: “Does requiring a two-year-old to have their own health insurance policy sound like a joke? Well it’s no joke, because that’s exactly what happened to self-employed title insurance business owner Cornelius Kelly and his pediatrician wife Jennifer. … He, his wife and their three oldest children, ages three, five, and six, could all be together on one policy ranging in price from $810.84 to $2,554.71 a month. The baby, because she was not yet two, required a separate plan whose options ranged in price from $117.21 to $369.31. So, as liberal logic would have it, children can stay on their parents insurance until they’re 26-years-old, but if a child is not yet two-years-old, they’re on their own.”
