Barack Obama’s laser-like focus on infringing on the gun rights of American citizens is driving up first-time and continued gun sales nationwide.
A New Hampshire felon targeted the wrong 65-year-old grandmother for a mugging, and earned a bullet in his chest for his trouble.
Gun violence has taken a heartbreaking toll on too many communities across the country. Over the past decade in America, more than 100,000 people have been killed as a result of gun violence—and millions more have been the victim of assaults, robberies, and other crimes involving a gun.
Today, the President picked up his “phone and his pen” and continued his assault on the Second Amendment.
On the presidential website, the President declared war on senior citizens, and on private individuals who, in some cases, sell as few as one firearm.
Those are just the highlights. There is much more, and you can read additional analysis of the President’s imperial diktat here.
But bottom line: Having failed to get gun control legislation passed in Congress, Obama is doing what he always does when he can’t get what he wants.
In a tearful delivery, laden with distorted generalizations, Barack Obama described his plan to control guns by executive order. Obama laid out a multi-point plan, covering licensing, increased enforcement and mental health.
The crux is this: Obamacare will be modified to require mental health issues to be reported to the FBI, for inclusion in background checks. I heard no mention of doctor’s discretion, no mention of protecting a patient’s privacy, or adherence to HIPAA regulations. Unless I miss my guess, this will be automatic.
Well. Guess this shows Obama’s priorities..Subjugating citizens and kinda fighting terrorists…or not..
President Obama plans to build a new gun control force of 430 agents, more than eight times the size of the team of commandos he is sending to the Middle East to hunt down and destroy ISIS terrorists. According to a White House fact sheet, the president plans to deploy 200 more Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents to help enforce our gun laws. He also plans to add at least 230 new FBI agents to pour over the backgrounds of gun buyers. Said the White House: The FBI will hire more than 230 additional examiners and other staff to help process these background checks. In Iraq, by comparison, the White House is moving to install an estimated 50-200 special operations forces to take down ISIS.
