Obama and Gun Control




This post is both old and current. It is old because Obama has a history of advocating gun control. It is current because of how the Second Amendment can be decimated by Obama’s reelection, and how gun control is always something for which Obama is working.

The Second Amendment to the US Constitution clearly states, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The Supreme Court of the US, in District of Columbia Et al. v. Heller, ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.

In yet another attempt to circumvent the US Constitution, the Supreme Court, and Congress, President Barack Hussein Obama tried to have his way again. In March, 2011, faced with a Congress hostile to even slight restrictions of Second Amendment rights, the Obama administration explored potential changes to gun laws that could be secured strictly through executive action.

BTW, here are some quotes from a famous (and a not-so-famous) person, as well as the consequences of gun control:

  • Adolph Hitler: “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to posses arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.”
  • Former US Attorney General Janet Reno: “Waiting periods are only a step. Registration is only a step. The prohibition of private firearms is the goal.”
  • In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • In 1935, China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • In 1938, Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
  • In 1956, Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • In 1964, Guatemala established gun control. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
  • In 1970, Uganda established gun control. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

If there was ever a reason to fight gun control, to fight for our 2nd amendment right, the above list is it!

Obama took in $421242 in campaign contributions in 2008 from Bank of America’s (BOA) executives, so there is a (strong) tie between Obama and BOA. And BOA got bailed out. BOA is one of just two vendors processing payments for Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign, employing a system that disables safeguards against illegal foreign donations.

Now we learn that a BOA terminated business with McMillan Fiberglass Stocks, McMillan Firearms Manufacturing, and McMillan Group International, who have been collectively banking with BOA for 12 years. Ray Fox, BOA Senior Vice President, confirmed that the termination was politically motivated. Are we beginning to connect dots?

McMillan is heavily involved with US national security. McMillan rifle stocks are the standard for the Marine Corps’ favored M40A3 sniper rifle. McMillan products, from stocks and other accessories to complete rifles, are used by US regular and special forces and by American military allies around the globe. McMillan products are of particular import in Afghanistan and in Iraq, where snipers and designated marksmen armed with long-range precision rifles performed (and still perform) vital scouting and overwatch functions protecting maneuver units. The extended range of these weapons allows forces to engage with and destroy enemy forces before they are in range to accurately fire against American soldiers and Marines.

The ultimate question is, “If Obama successfully controls all guns out of existence, what good will the Second Amendment be?”

But that’s just my opinion.

    The belief in Liberalism will be banned as far as how it has deconstructed our Constitutional rights, and constructed Socialist style governance over the people of this country. That includes all Liberalism’s forms, i.e., Environmentalism, Multiculturalism, Humanism, and all the other forms that have been allowed to affect all our lives from these organizations and followers got someone from their belief system to run for political office, alot of money was put into his campaign and he gets into office by gullable people voting for him. They did that because they were convinced our former form of government was racist, discriminating, and neglegent of various groups of different kinds of people in our society that should have been getting much more help than they were getting from the government. I could take the conversation off in other directions explaining all that with it’s various emotional implications but I’m not. I think there are enough people out there who know how things got like they have because there are people in our society who claim to represent the group of some people who they claim need help. We all have heard of those kinds of organizations, most currently there is ACORN, and MoveOn.org, MediaMatters, and thousands that have been funded by liberals and the use of our tax dollars to exist for years. I would want all those organizations to banned, and their leadership put in prison because of the damage they have done to this nation.

    The solutions to this nations problems will never, NEVER go away as long as these kinds of people, i.e., Communists, and leftist organizations, and all the people those subversive people and leftist organizations have influenced to think, act, and vote, like they wanted them to do are allowed to remain even if, say, we were to put a real conservative in office as a President. He would not be able to solve but a tiny few of our nations problems as long as the people who are behind this nations down fall are allowed to exist in their current form. There must be a force used to make the kind of changes that must be made if America is to exist. If the kinds of changes that must be made are not done, then those people and organizations will continue to exist for the purpose they were created for, and that is to destroy this nation. If we don’t use force to put an end to the destructive force they bring to bear on this nations governance and the very societal structure of our nation, like certain kinds of businesses, i.e., the oil industry, then we will continue to watch these people and organizations to continue to do what they have been doing for the past 50+ years. We have allowed it. Our emotions and symentalities were attacked by these people, leftists, and we were bullied into summiting to THEIR will, instead of standing our ground against them. But we had never been attacked like that before and I believe we just didn’t know what to do, or how to resist their attacks. They called us names we had never been called before, and then before we knew what was happening they made laws that said we couldn’t be that way anymore, and we didn’t know what to do. All the while they were moving ahead making one law after another taking more and more righst and freedoms away from us.

    Now, we have lost so many rights that even though we didn’t want this kind of man for President to get elected, the leftist were able to convince enough to vote for him out of all that emotions, that now we have a Communist for President of the United States.

    I didn’t think a Communist could be elected to any office like that. I actually thought it was against some law. But that was when I found out that liberals had taken those laws and protections away from us a long time ago.

    Obama has already committed so many crimes, as backed up by my Congressman and Senator, that it is already PASSED the time that we the people should have taken up arms and acted on our CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT and removed this government and replaced it with a CONSTITUTIONAL government that does respects all the rights of the people. My question is, when are we going to stop fearing loosing our jobs, leave our families behind and do what a free people should be doing in order to preserve that freedom for current and future generations? You know it wouldn’t take the death of to many Socialist Democrats in both departments, agencies, the Congress, and the Senate before they all would surrender and give us what we demand, like Obama’s Blackberry that he refused to turn over to the FBI that he uses to get, for instance, that call from Kagen after the Supreme Court had made their decision of over ride ObamaCare the day after the Supreme Court hearings, and terrorists he talks to, and all his records he refused to turn over, and many rep’s. resignations immediately from office, etc. Then we’d be back to where we’d belong as a nation beginning with $0.87 a gallon gas, abolishing the IRS, and all the other laws Dems. made that are all unConstitutional no one had the guts to stop when they could.

    It doesn’t take an all out revolution to make these fat bastards do what they are supposed to be doing. And that includes Republican’s to, big time. I would want Communism, Socialism, Marxism, and all other subversive organizations banned from this country. That means the leadership will have their citizenship revoked and they will be deported to some other Socialist or Communist country forever. And all others will be put in prison for what they have done. And what have they done? They put Communist/Socialist’s into office so they could undermine our country, and used soft language on us that fooled us as to who they really were in order to get us to vote for them. Also I want liberalism banned as nothing more than an opinion. If you believe those things and you want to live that way, then I don’t have a problem with it. But if you take those beliefs to some liberal Congressman or Senator who makes a law that forces me to change my lifestyle to reflect liberal beliefs I don’t have, that will no longer be allowed.

    America is a Constitutional Representative Republic. It is not a Socialist nation and will not be permitted to become one in any form or fasion. It is not a Communist nation and will not be permitted to become one in way, shape or fasion, and anyone who holds those beliefs and wants to live that way for themselves and their family members, I don’t have a problem with but no law will be ever made that forces those beliefs on me or any other citizen.

    All Constitutional laws will be enforced on every state. That means if the 2nd Amendment is Constitutional then it applies to every state and every town and city in that state and to every person in the country. In other words you have the right to own a gun if you want one. And if you don’t then you don’t have to, but you are not allowed to become a Congressman and make laws that take that right from me in any way, shape, or fasion.

    And if it is going to take us acting on our Constitutional right to make all that I have mentioned above, and those things are certainly not a comprehinsive list, then that is what we must do and that is shed some of our blood and the blood of the tyrants who are controling our government right now in order to make America a free nation again. The time is now, not later when Obama has already taken so many rights away from us we no longer have the option of acting on that Constitutional right I told you exists in black and white if you will look it up. We cannot wait any longer, and the people of America who may be shocked if and when we decide that the time is right, have to understand that we are not a bunch of idiot “revolutionaries”, but are merely acting on the right to make sure we DO have a good government if we are going to have one at all. So they need to be told in order for them to not get scared if they see this on the news one day and are wondering what is going on especially if it’s their Congressman who got shot. They might wonder what he did to warrent getting wounded if he resisted in being thrown out as ordered by us, we the people, who have the power to throw him out when it is neccessary to take that level of action because it is the only way to get rid of him because stupid people keep putting him back in office and he’s destroying the country everytime he comes back.

    Like Obama, who is a criminal and not the President because he won’t prove who he is even though we already know he has been a Socialist Marxist ever since he was raised by his Socialist mother and Muslim father. And that is another thing that would be needed and that is ALL AMERICA’S ENEMIES WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO LIVE HERE WHILE THEY ARE TRAINING TO KILL US NO MATTER IF THEY USED BECOMING A CITIZEN IN ORDER TO HIDE FROM BEING FOUND OUT SOONER, and deportation of all Muslims would have to be undertaken in order to remove all the enemy troops who have come here either by amnesty or across the border with Mexico illegally. If they resist they will be shot and their bodies will be sent back to their family in the country of origin. That is respectful enough isn’t it? Our nations enemies will be put on notice, either get out or be removed and deported. We as a people cannot allow our enemies to come here to kill us because liberals claim that everyone has the right to come here if they want to? That is insane! This deportation order includes Mexican’s as well since the majority are here to deal dope and are very dangerous. Our military should be the one’s right now who should be rounding them up to get them out of our country. Why would anyone in their right mind want such people to have the right to come here? Liberals thought it was okay?
