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

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

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.

Taxes!

If a man earned a monthly income of $7,000 per month and earned an additional $5,000 on investments, his total monthly income would be $12,000. If he had set up a budget based upon his $7,000 monthly salary, he would have a monthly surplus of $5,000. If he spent $8,000 in a month he would have a $1,000 deficit. The obvious solution would be to make up the shortfall by withdrawing $1,000 from his accumulated assets. When the Federal Government establishes their budget based upon their anticipated income generated from taxes. They do not include the amount of money they anticipate that they will earn on their invested assets. The Federal Government collected 2.5 trillion dollars in taxes but earned another 5 trillion dollars on their invested assets. The total money available to run the country would be 7.5 trillion dollars. If the government were to spend 3.8 trillion dollars, we would have a surplus of 3.7 trillion dollars. By using their creative accounting system, Congress claims to have spent 3.8 trillion dollars and only collected 2.5 trillion in taxes. They want us to believe that “We the People” have a 1.3 trillion dollar deficit. Rather than tapping the accumulated reserves, Congress wants to raise our taxes and/or reduce the services provided by the government. If no taxes were collected by the Federal Government, they would still be earning more than enough money to finance the government. Can you imagine what would happen to our economy if the Income Tax were to be eliminated.

The Toomey-Manchin Proposal Will Allow Doctors to Block Your Right to Guns

The proposal will allow a doctor to add a patient to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) without ever telling the patient he or she has been added.

There would be no due process requirement. Not all doctors will be able to do it with the same ease, but many will. Knowing a doctor could add him to a federal database as mentally ill without his knowledge could potentially dissuade a patient from going to the doctor in the first place to get help.

Worse, if the doctor does so and makes a mistake, the patient would have to actively work through the system to get himself removed — guilty before being proven innocent. In some states, should a doctor flag you as having mental illness without your knowledge, you may very well see the state come collect your previously purchased guns.

Activist mental health providers will probably be overly aggressive in adding people to the list. Give it five years in liberal areas and people who believe in the physical resurrection of Christ will probably get automatic entry onto the list.

Charley Reese

This should be on the front page of every newspaper.

Charley Reese‘s final column for the Orlando Sentinel… He has been a journalist for 49 years. He is retiring and this is HIS LAST COLUMN.

This is about as clear and easy to understand as it can be. The article below is completely neutral, neither anti-republican or democrat. Charlie Reese, a retired reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, has hit the nail directly on the head, defining clearly who it is that in the final analysis must assume responsibility for the judgments made that impact each one of us every day. It’s a short but good read. Worth the time. Worth remembering!

545 vs. 300,000,000 People
-By Charlie Reese

Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.

Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?

Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The President does.

You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.

You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.

You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.

Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits.. ( The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.)

The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House?( John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. ) If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to. [The House has passed a budget but the Senate has not approved a
budget in over three years. The President's proposed budgets have gotten
almost unanimous rejections in the Senate in that time. ]

It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair.

If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red.

If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it’s because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ..

If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way.

There are no insoluble government problems.

Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power.
Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible. They, and they alone, have the power.

They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses. Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees… We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

Is Congress Really ‘Fixable’?

This is one idea that really should be passed around

*Congressional Reform Act of 2013

1. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/31/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S. ) to receive the message. Don’t you think it’s time?

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!
