The Battle for our Gun Rights is Growing Intense

The Battle for our Gun Rights
is Growing Intense

Wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to [act], that’s what I’m going to do…. I intend to keep trying, with or without Congress, to help stop more [gun-related] tragedies from visiting innocent Americans in our movie theaters, shopping malls, or schools like Sandy Hook. — President Obama’s State of the Union address, January 28, 2014

No doubt, you’ve heard the chilling words above already.

On Tuesday night, the President once again demonstrated that he has zero respect for the Constitution or for our God-given freedoms that are guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.

Obama indicated that if the Congress doesn’t act the way he wants, he’ll pick up his Executive Order pen and write more gun control restrictions into law.

His attorney general, Eric Holder, made a similar statement on Wednesday to legislators on Capitol Hill:  “It is [the President’s] intention to again try to work with Congress, but in the absence of meaningful action [on gun control] to explore all the possibilities and use all the powers that he has to.”

Obama is acting like a tyrant, but many of his supporters inside the Beltway don’t care.  They are defending him to the Nth degree.

For our part at GOA, we’re sounding the alarm and we’re working within the other two branches of government to rein in the President’s excesses.

And that has some folks upset.

Esquire magazine attacks Gun Owners of America

We recently alerted you to the effort by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to restore the right to carry arms in post offices.  You guys responded wonderfully to this alert, and they are hearing you loud-n-clear on Capitol Hill.

The issue is still not resolved as the Senate committee postponed action on the underlying bill, in part, because of the Rand Paul amendment.  According to The Washington Post, the Paul amendment “require[s] more study.”

In the meantime, gun owners are encouraged to double down in their efforts to contact their Senators.

While the GOA alert found a receptive audience in the gun community, Esquire magazine was horrified and mocked our Tuesday alert, calling us “nutballs” for wanting to reclaim the right to protect ourselves in a Post Office building.

The editors at Esquire share the same fundamental belief as our President, who has nothing but contempt for American gun owners.  Remember the President’s derogatory reference to individuals who bitterly “cling to their Bibles or religion”?

The lines between the opposing sides couldn’t be more clearly drawn.

So please stand with Gun Owners of America and become a member for 2014 if you have not already done so!

The more members we have, the louder our “megaphone” in Washington, D.C., becomes.  Help us to drown out the drivel from the political Esquires in the nation’s capital — wherever they may rear their ugly heads.

GOA involved in three Supreme Court cases

Gun Owners of America continues to fight for Second Amendment rights in the courts.

And currently, GOA (and its foundation arm) has three amicus cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.  We are fighting:

1) To protect your right to buy/sell firearms.  In Abramski v. United States, GOA is challenging the ATF’s definition of a “straw purchase.”  The agency has adopted a faulty definition which could, ultimately, threaten to put you in jail for buying a gun from a dealer and then later selling it to a law-abiding family member or friend.

2) To keep you and your guns safe from “no-knock” home raids.  With an increasing number of “no-knock” raids occurring around the country — just because the home occupants are known to own guns — GOA is fighting to protect your safety and privacy in Quinn v. Texas.

3) To protect you from indefinite military arrest and detention.  In Hedges v. Barack Obama, Gun Owners of America helped file an amicus brief in support of Chris Hedges and other journalists and political activists who are challenging Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which allows American citizens to be subject to secret arrest and indefinite detention by the military, exempt from the protections of the Bill of Rights.

The Omnibus Appropriations Bill: Pro-gun or Anti-gun?

Gun Owners of America

The Omnibus Appropriations Bill:

Pro-gun or Anti-gun?

On Friday, Congress sent a $1.1 trillion government funding bill to the President, who promptly signed the legislation into law.

Like every “omnibus,” the bill has a number of gun-related provisions — some pro-gun, some anti-gun. And we suspect that a majority of our members will probably oppose this bloated monstrosity.

That being said, there were some key victories in this bill. So briefly, here are the pros and cons.

 THE PROS

THE “OMNIBUS” KILLS THE ARMS TRADE TREATY. In the 113th Congress, we believe we have about twenty votes more than we need to stop ratification of the UN Arms Trade Treaty. This is extremely important because, if implemented, this treaty — signed by the Obama administration — could, without further legislation, result in massive semi-auto and handgun bans, magazine bans, gun registration, and microstamping.

Even though we felt comfortable that we could stop the treaty’s ratification, we were concerned that Obama would attempt to implement it by administrative fiat. For this reason, we drafted language defunding its implementation. With your help, we have spent the last year pushing incessantly for the adoption of this amendment defunding the ATT.

That language is contained on the “Omnibus.” For many of our members, killing the ATT is more important than any other issue.

IT CUTS A LITTLE OBAMACARE MONEY. This is a good thing, since the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate threatens to centralize our medical data, thus resulting in gun bans for millions of people (similar to what’s already been done to more than 150,000 military veterans). While some cuts are certainly welcome, by and large, we are relying on our amendments to bills like the unemployment bill to put a stake through the heart of ObamaCare.

IT CONTAINS A HOST OF (GENERALLY BOILERPLATE) PROVISIONS DEFUNDING OBAMA’S ANTI-GUN ACTIONS. These include a repudiation of the shotgun import ban, other import bans, and changes in various definitions (such as “curios and relics”) which have been eyed by the ATF.

It outlaws programs like Fast & Furious and requires the Congress to report on alleged efforts by our federal government to buy up ammunition.

Finally, while it does contain more money for the Center for Disease Control’s violent crime studies, it continues to prohibit this federal health research money from being used to advocate gun control.

 THE CONS

FUNDING FOR ANTI-GUN AGENCIES. The bill contains increased money for a number of programs we don’t like, including:

* $60 million more for NICS (although we succeeded, last year, in preventing the FBI from using NICS to screen every gun purchase in the country);

* $58.5 million for states to submit NICS records;

* $70 million more for the ATF.

CONTINUATION OF ANTI-GUN BOILERPLATE. The bill continues anti-gun boilerplate such as the Senator Schumer amendment defunding the McClure-Volkmer disabilities relief program. This means that thousands upon thousands of Americans who are disqualified from owning firearms because of non-violent federal felonies have no way to get their gun rights back.

REFUSAL TO STICK IN SOME PROVISIONS WE WERE FIGHTING FOR. We would have liked to see language defunding HHS’s new regulations that repeal the HIPAA privacy laws that protect gun owners. This Executive Action means that tens of millions of Americans could lose their gun rights without a court order.

We also would have liked to see a provision defunding the ATF’s efforts to register multiple handgun purchases in the Southwest.

The HIPAA issue is fairly new, and we will continue to fight for these on the regular appropriations bills when they begin to move in May.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Gun control fanatic Michael Bloomberg is trying to do a “victory lap” on the “Omnibus.” In the narratives we have seen, Bloomberg carefully ignores the provisions of the bill which go against him, particularly the provision killing the ATT.

This is certainly a desperate effort by a defeated man to appear “relevant,” rather than a legitimate assessment of who won or who lost.

Is It Any Wonder?

Subject: Senate Gun Control Bill

 

Read this very carefully….

 

The “most popular” part of the proposed Senate gun control bill (background checks) sounds like a good idea at first but is more restrictive than anyone anticipated and will have significant unintended consequences.

 

There is a huge push to get it through Congress before the public has a chance to consider its contents.

Common activities that we take for granted will become federal crimes. These are not irresponsible exaggerations. Please take a moment to review the requirements of the bill.

Here are a few examples of the restrictions in the bill:

EXAMPLE #1
Loaning your buddy a shotgun for a duck hunting trip will be considered a transfer. If the following requirements are not met, YOU HAVE BOTH COMMITTED A FEDERAL CRIME.

1. He must have already purchased his hunting license
2. Season is already open (and will not close before he returns it)
3. He cannot travel with the firearm through a county where season is not yet open or any area where hunting is prohibited and certainly not across a state line.

He CANNOT stop by your house on the day before season opens, pick up the shot gun, go to the sporting goods store to buy a license and shells then drive out to the hunting lease. In this scenario, YOU BOTH WOULD HAVE COMMITTED MULTIPLE FEDERAL CRIMES, YOUR WEAPONS WILL BE FORFEITED AND YOU WILL LOOSE YOUR RIGHT TO BUY OR OWN A FIREARM.

EXAMPLE #2
It appears that only you may relocate your weapons. If your weapon leaves your home without you, the new legislation considers it a transfer of possession. ALL transfers require going through a firearms dealer, paying the transfer fee and a background check for the transferee.

Putting the weapon, even temporarily in someone else’s possession, requires a transfer through a dealer. There is no exception for putting them in a friend’s truck while moving to your new house or packing them unloaded, locked in a gunsafe into a moving truck.

Any scenario in which your weapon leaves your home without you is considered a transfer. Failure to properly transfer the weapon is a federal crime which can result in a prison term AND WILL RESULT IN THE FORFEITURE OF YOUR WEAPON.

In the scenario above, your buddy’s truck was used to commit a federal crime and WILL BE CONFISCATED just like with current Fish and Game violations.

EXAMPLE #3

Infractions as above which involve 2 guns of any type are considered weapons trafficking. You will be prosecuted under the same federal laws as a terrorist arms dealer.

EXAMPLE #4

Any of the infractions above (or hundreds of other routine scenarios) may result in federal charges, confiscation of ALL your weapons and being prohibited, like all felons, from ever owning a weapon again.


Please read the text of the bill yourself. Most of it is boring legalese but the sections on transfers and trafficking are critical.

Take a minute to think about all the routine activities like those above that will make you a federal criminal and result in prison time plus the confiscation of your weapons and other property.

A link to the bill is included below on the official Senate website. See Section 122 “Firearms Transfers”.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c113:S.649:

Read it and call your congressman’s office. Talk to their staff. Tell them how you feel about this.

Keep in mind, none of the above would have stopped the tragedy’s in Columbine or Newtown. The proposed law makes you a criminal and opens the door for confiscation of your weapons and property for otherwise routine activities.

Think and act. Congress is hoping that you will do neither.

If you found the patience to read the entire text, you also learned that exactly $100 million per year of your tax money is set aside to enforce these restrictions.

Focusing on the wrong problems: “While America has been fixated on the threat of Islamic terrorism for more than a decade, all but a few domestic terror plots have failed. Between September 11, 2001, and the end of 2012, there were no successful bomb plots by jihadist terrorists in the United States. Jihadists killed 17 people in the United States in four separate incidents during this time, according to data collected by journalist Peter Bergen and the New America Foundation. All four of these incidents involved guns, including Nidal Hassan‘s shooting rampage at Fort Hood, which killed 13 people. In contrast, right-wing extremists killed 29 people during those 11 years.” –Mother Jones’ Dave Gilson

Gun grabbers: “I mean, if we could get guns under control, if we could get rid of them, I’m with all of that. … Of course I want to get rid of guns.” –actor Tracy Morgan

Taking Joe Biden’s advice: “If you live in a city and you think you need protection of your home, you’re way better off with a shotgun than an assault weapon. Trust me. It’s not even close.” –Bill Clinton

Amnesty: “Creating a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in this country is absolutely essential. The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented — by creating a mechanism for them to earn citizenship and to move out of the shadows — transcends the issue of immigration status. This is a matter of civil and human rights.” –Attorney General Eric Holder

Hot air: “If we want to make progress on climate change, we need everyone in Congress on board for a solution. It’s our job to show them there’s a price to pay for being a climate denier.” –Organizing for Action‘s Jon Carson

What’s disgusting? “When a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant, she’ll go through hell, high water in North Dakota — blizzards, floods, you know, she’ll hit a deer on the way, and have a flat tire and say, ‘Can I still come?’ When a woman doesn’t want to be pregnant, she’ll do what she needs to do. And unfortunately it just adds to the stigma that women feel when they hear all of these things about heart beat, sex selection, genetic abnormality. You know, abortion is very common and the stigma is disgusting.” –North Dakota abortion-clinic director Tammi Kromenaker

IF YOU ARE GAY AND IN THE U.S. MILITARY, YOU ARE FREE TO EXPRESS YOURSELF. IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN AND EXPRESS YOUR FAITH IN THE U.S. MILITARY YOU MAY BE PROSECUTED UNDER FEDERAL MILITARY LAW.

Punishment for this new “crime” may include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.
Let the religious persecution begin….

The Pentagon has released a statement confirming that soldiers could be prosecuted for promoting their faith: “Religious proselytization is not permitted within the Department of Defense…Court martials and non-judicial punishments are decided on a case-by-case basis…”.

The statement, released to Fox News, follows a Breitbart News report on Obama administration Pentagon appointees meeting with anti-Christian extremist Mikey Weinstein to develop court-martial procedures to punish Christians in the military who express or share their faith.

(From our earlier report: Weinstein is the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, and says Christians–including chaplains–sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in the military are guilty of “treason,” and of committing an act of “spiritual rape” as serious a crime as “sexual assault.” He also asserted that Christians sharing their faith in the military are “enemies of the Constitution.”)

Being convicted in a court martial means that a soldier has committed a crime under federal military law. Punishment for a court martial can include imprisonment and being dishonorably discharged from the military.

So President Barack Obama’s civilian appointees who lead the Pentagon are confirming that the military will make it a crime–possibly resulting in imprisonment–for those in uniform to share their faith. This would include chaplains—military officers who are ordained clergymen of their faith (mostly Christian pastors or priests, or Jewish rabbis)–whose duty since the founding of the U.S. military under George Washington is to teach their faith and minister to the spiritual needs of troops who come to them for counsel, instruction, or comfort.
