Obama Budget Lays Groundwork for Universal Gun Registry

Obama Budget Lays Groundwork
for Universal Gun Registry
And ATF makes the import ban on 5.45×39 ammo official

Click Here to Take Action on today’s alert


Last Friday, Attorney General Eric Holder testified before a House appropriations subcommittee on behalf of his department’s proposed budget for FY2015.

Apparently, Holder didn’t think anyone would read his written submission, because he all-but-admitted that Obama intends to implement a Universal Gun Registry by executive fiat.

He also asked Congress to help fund so-called “smart gun” technology, which would prevent a gun from firing unless the shooter is wearing an accompanying bracelet or ring.

“Smart guns” are a dumb idea

Given that “smart gun” technology only works about 80 percent of the time — according to the New Jersey Institute of Technology — gun owners almost universally consider this a “dumb” idea.

Even police have rejected the “dumb gun” approach for themselves.

Currently, there are no such guns on the market in the United States.  One gun store did briefly offer an Armatix .22 caliber earlier this year, but public outrage forced them to pull the handgun from the shelves.

Holder pushes a Universal Gun Registry

This year’s Obama budget shows how the administration is trying to quietly create the infrastructure for a universal gun registry.

In proposed “Program Increases” for the FBI, Holder has this to say:

“This program enhancement will double the capacity of the existing NICS [National Instant Check System] system.  These expansions are vital in ensuring that the NICS system can support a Universal Background Check requirement, which is expected to double gross NICS transactions.”

Huh?

It may have escaped the Attorney General’s notice, but the Democrat Senate defeated his Universal Background Check requirement.

So, in effect, Holder’s asking for $100 million and 524 personnel to implement a program Congress rejected.

But that’s not all.

Holder seeking more ATF agents to copy to 4473 forms

In the section on ATF “Program Increases,” Holder demands $51.1 million and 255 agents and other personnel for enforcement and inspections.

In case anyone has forgotten, these are the people who are going to the FFL’s in connection with “annual inspections” — and physically copying all the 4473′s and bound book entries.  GOA has reported on these efforts before, and one can read first-hand accounts from gun dealers here and here.

So under Holder’s proposed budget, many more 4473′s would be copied and fed into ATF’s de facto registry.

At the same time, Obama’s illegal Universal Background Check — implemented, presumably, by executive fiat — would ensure every gun transaction would have to go through an FFL.  And this, of course, would guarantee that every American gun owner would have a 4473 which can be copied.

Think about it.  With Republicans expected to take the Senate this fall — and Obama stymied legislatively — he has every incentive to go “full tyrant.”  And that, apparently, is exactly what he intends to do.

But we have no intention to sit back and let Holder take away our Second Amendment rights.  We have drafted legislation to prohibit ATF from copying 4473′s — and to require it to destroy any 4473′s it currently has.

UPDATE:  GOA recently alerted you that an import ban on certain ammunition could be forthcoming from the ATF.  Well, it’s official now — the ATF just declared that Russian-made 7N6 5.45×39 ammo is armor piercing.  This lawlessness represents another reason that Congress needs to cut t he ATF’s budget.

ACTION:  Click here to Contact your Representative.  Demand that the Commerce-Justice-Science appropriations bill contain language to prohibit ATF from compiling a national gun registry by copying and retaining the 4473′s of every American.

 

Gun Owners win key victories, including one before the Supreme Court

Gun Owners win key victories, including one
before the Supreme Court

And gunnies say goodbye to a good friend

“Otis McDonald was a gracious Christian gentleman who loved his family and wanted nothing more than to keep them safe,” said GOA Executive Director Larry Pratt, who interviewed McDonald (for his NewsHour radio program) after the Supreme Court ruled in McDonald’s favor and struck down Chicago’s gun control law.

GOA won a huge victory before the Supreme Court in the McCutcheon case last week — a decision which will effectively allow GOA supporters to contribute greater total dollar amounts to help pro-gun candidates get elected.

One of the arguments that Gun Owners of America made in its amicus brief was that the Court should not trust Congress to regulate elections — a point that was echoed by Chief Justice John Roberts on page 3 of the McCutcheondecision:  “And those who govern should be the last people to help decide whoshould govern.”

GOA is also thankful for Justice Clarence Thomas, whose opinion most closely resembled the arguments made in GOA’s brief.

While Justice Thomas concurred in the majority decision, he also issued his own opinion, saying he would have gone further to overturn all contribution limits — something that Justice Thomas has urged for years, and something that GOA’s brief urged, as well.

Gun owners can read GOA’s amicus brief here; and the U.S. Supreme Court decision here.

GOA helping states block federal gun laws

Gun Owners of America recently thanked its Idaho members for their activism in helping their state become the latest to nullify President Obama’s gun control agenda.

GOA issued several alerts into the state in favor of the nullification bill, and GOA activists rose to the occasion.

After Governor Butch Otter (R) signed the bill into law in late March, GOA issued a statement to the media congratulating residents of the Gem State.

“By signing this nullification bill into law,” said GOA’s Director of Communications Erich Pratt, “Idaho has joined an elite class of states that are telling the feds to ‘get lost’ — especially when it comes to unconstitutional gun control infringements.”

The new law will bar Idaho officials from enforcing federal gun control laws, and the law will penalize officers who give such orders.

“Almost a dozen states have introduced similar bills this year,” Pratt said.  “And Alaska and Kansas enacted their own nullification bills last year.”

Gun owners smack down Bloomberg gun control in New Hampshire

It has been a long, hard battle in the Granite State, but the self-proclaimed nation’s Mayor — the anti-gun Michael Bloomberg — has come up empty-handed.

The former New York City Mayor is spending millions of dollars all over the country in an effort to expand background checks to prevent more and more law-abiding citizens from owning guns.

In New Hampshire, Senate Bill 244 was introduced with this end in mind by an anti-gun Democrat.  As introduced, the bill would have imposed gun bans on large classes of Granite Staters.

This ban could have covered police and firemen with PTSD; or seniors with Alzheimer’s, many of whom have very large and valuable gun collections which they would like to pass on to their children.

GOA worked with the New Hampshire Firearms Coalition in the state to get the onerous provisions stripped out of the bill.  After a long hard battle — where some weak-kneed gun groups in the state even supported gun control “lite” as an alternative — the state Senate did the right thing and stripped out every word of gun control.

The legislature is still in session, and thus, it “ain’t over till the fat lady sings.”  But this is a big victory for the Second Amendment in New Hampshire, and another huge defeat for the Bloomberg agenda nationwide.

Saying goodbye to Otis McDonald

Finally, we report, with great sadness, that Otis McDonald — a recent icon in the gun movement — died last Friday, April 4.

Gun owners will remember him as the valiant resident of Chicago who brought down the city’s handgun ban — a case which was finally decided in 2010 by the U.S. Supreme Court in the now famous McDonald v. Chicago.

GOA Executive Director interviewed him for his radio program and later appeared with him on the Judge Jeanine Pirro show on Fox News last year.

McDonald died last week at the age of 80 after a long illness.

“While Otis is no longer with us, his legacy will continue on for years,” Pratt said.  “Otis McDonald will truly be missed.”

Gun owners can read GOA’s amicus brief in the McDonald decision here and the U.S. Supreme Court decision here.

World War III Is Imminent

A very clear picture is emerging over the crisis in Ukraine. Each side has taken on definitive moves in order to bring its military forces into the coming conflict. In short, each side is mobilizing for war. The world may have as little as 30 to 60 days of relative peace left before all hell breaks loose. The world is familiar on how the Russian military has postured its forces to take over Ukraine and begin the process of a Putin economic war against the West once Ukraine is secured. The US and NATO are responding in kind and by this summer, NATO will be ready to challenge the Russians

Obama Is Making Money On Privatized Prisons and Slave Labor

Since the advent of privatized prisons in 1984, America has witnessed the passage of laws that require zero tolerance and mandatory sentencing, without regard for any extenuating circumstances. These two factors walk hand in hand as the increasingly privatized American justice system is designed to produce as many prisoners as possible. Our prison system is experiencing a much larger percentage of work by prisoners, thus creating profits for Wall Street which in turn motivate the incarceration of more people for longer periods of time. Privatized prison corporate investors make happy campaign contributors. Therefore, you can bet that the proverbial poop rolls down hill to the cops and the push is on to incarcerate more and more. Some argue that is fine and we should lock all the bad guys up. However, when one of the fastest growing segments of our prison population are children, we all need to sit up take notice and take action, especially when the President of the United States is profiting from the corruption

 

Time to Repeal Gun-Free Zones!

Time to Repeal Gun-Free Zones!

“It really doesn’t matter, when somebody shows up at a place, why they’re trying to kill people,” Erich Pratt, the group’s director of communications, told MSNBC. “The important thing is that people be able to protect themselves.”

Yesterday’s tragic shooting at Ft. Hood raises the question once again: How many more lives must perish before Congress repeals the ban on service members carrying guns?

We now know that Ivan Lopez, an Iraq War veteran, brought a .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun onto Ft. Hood yesterday and killed three other people, before killing himself.

Fox News reports that the rampage ended when a female MP drew her weapon, causing Lopez to take his own life.

It was previous base shootings like this one that prompted Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) to introduce H.R. 3199 last year, a bill to repeal the ban on carrying firearms on military bases.

 Click here to send a message to your Representative and insist that he cosponsor H.R. 3199!

Rep. Stockman blasted the glaring double-standard that keeps our servicemen disarmed.

“Why are civilians at a restaurant allowed to defend themselves but soldiers trained in firearms aren’t?” Stockman asked.  “Why can’t we extend common sense gun laws like open carry to our soldiers?”

Ret. Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford — who survived the 2009 Ft. Hood shooting, despite being shot 7 times by Nidal Hasan — shocked an MSNBC host today when he said “I think more guns” is the answer.  

“Had it been where other service members [had] guns or weapons on them at that time,” Sgt. Lunsford said, “I don’t think [Lopez] would have reacted the way that he was reacting.”

It is imperative that gun owners urge their Representatives to cosponsor H.R. 3199.  Every time we repeal another gun-free zone, we take away another killing zone that the Left can use to clamor for gun control.

  Click here to send a message to your Representative and insist that he cosponsor H.R. 3199!

To be sure, the political Left has spent the entire day trying to exploit this tragedy in hopes of resurrecting calls for gun control.

Should we ban those on anxiety meds?  How about servicemen with PTSD?  What about just anyone who is seeking psychiatric counseling?

These are the questions that MSNBC hosts have raised today.  But over and over again, even their own liberal guests continue to shoot down the idea that society can accurately predict which non-violent individuals are likely to commit violence in the future:

* Former FBI agent and criminal profiler, Clint Van Zandt:  “There is no real litmus test for who’s going to commit violence.”

* NBC reporter Jim Miklaszewski:  “[Psychologists] saw no sign of likely violence or suicidal tendencies from [Ivan] Lopez.”

* Dr. Devi Nampiaparampil, a NYU professor:  “PTSD by itself, it doesn’t make people violent.”

So even though gun grabbers are trying to use tragedies like this to expand gun laws — making them even more draconian — the dirty little secret among the “intelligencia” is that background checks are doomed to fail:

* Remember Adam Lanza at Newtown, Connecticut?  He stole his firearms from his mother, whom he murdered.

* Or how about the Clackamas Mall shooter?  He stole his AR-15, just as Lanza (one week later) would steal his firearms.

* Then there was the James Holmes at the Aurora theater in Colorado.  He passed two background checks.

* Or how about Jared Loughner in Tucson, Arizona?  He passed a background check.

No wonder that America’s police officers, by a 2-to-1 margin, support concealed carry as the answer to large scale shootings — as compared to expanding mental health checks for gun buyers.  (See page 6.)

“Saving lives by allowing trained soldiers to carry firearms should be an easy fix,” said Rep. Stockman.  “No reasonable person can oppose that.”

Lawless Obama Shreds More Constitutional Protections for Steel Core 5.45×39 Ammo

Lawless Obama Shreds More Constitutional Protections for Steel Core 5.45×39 Ammo

Not a GOA member yet?  Click here to join Gun Owners of America


America was already pretty close to reaching a Kenya-style Third World tinpot dictatorship.

First, it was the VA’s efforts to disarm law-abiding military veterans for supposedly being “mental defectives,” even though 18 U.S.C. 922(g) requires “adjudications” and there were none.

Then, it was the ATF’s actions to copy 4473′s and compile a gun registry, even though 18 U.S.C. 923(g) and other provisions of McClure-Volkmer prohibited that.

Then, it was Obama’s moves to illegally require reporting of multiple gun sales … and feed gun information into a national health database … and repeal federal privacy laws (HIPAA) … and try to ban the importation of shotguns.

All without any statutory authority whatsoever.

Now, within the last week, according to the Military Arms Channel Blog, the ATF may be on the verge of banning the importation of steel core 5.45×39 ammunition by regulatory fiat.

According to the website, the rumor stems from an importer who had filed a Form 6 to bring a shipment of 7N6 surplus ammo from Russia.  The form approval went well past 2 weeks, which is the normal time frame for a Form 6 to be approved by the ATF.

The importer emailed the ATF to find out what was going on, and received this email response back:  “A handgun has now been manufactured that chambers a 5.45×39 round.  That now makes steel core 5.45×39 armor piercing under our definition…”

This will not be the first time legal ammunition has been deemed by the ATF to have become mysteriously illegal because a new gun has been created. 

Nevertheless, this is certainly a strained and perverted reading of what “armor piercing ammunition” is — a definition which looks to the metallic content and/or the intended use of the ammunition — not to all possible uses.

A couple of points need to be made: 

(1) First, the heavily-abused “armor piercing ammunition” ban was yet another gun control measure slammed through by Senator Bob Dole with the acquiescence of certain “pro-gun groups.” 

(2) Second, if anyone wondered why we have fought for almost thirty years to oppose efforts to make the definition of “armor piercing ammunition” much broader, malleable, and subject to abuse, this recent ATF action is their answer.

We have defeated Obama’s efforts to rewrite this definition by statute.  But it is clear that, if the Obama administration can’t get Congress to pass an ammunition ban, it will ban ammunition on its own accord.

ATF will do what ATF will do — or not.

But it is time for Congress to use the “power of the purse” to stop these repeated exercises to turn both the Constitution and the laws into a roll of toilet paper.

ACTION:  Please Take Action and contact your representative.  Tell him to reject any ATF spending bill which does not defund ATF’s unlawful regulatory activities.
