Obama considering reaching for that Pen on gun control

No sooner had I read that Hillary Clinton: “I am going to get those guns out of people’s hands” from over at America’s Watchtower – by Executive action by golly if required, well good ole Hussein said now isn’t that a swell idea, and started reaching for that Pen and Phone. Hint: Keep your eye on ammo. An easier route.

The White House is considering whether President Obama can take executive action to enforce stronger gun control measures, White House spokesman Joshua Earnest said on Monday.

“The president has frequently pushed his team to consider a range of executive actions that could more effectively keep guns out of the hands of criminals and others who shouldn’t have access to them,” Earnest said Monday. “That’s something that is ongoing here.”

Earnest was responding to questions from reporters following Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she would consider executive action to expand background checks on gun buyers by closing the so-called gun show loophole.

Clinton’s move marks the second time she has said she will consider going farther than the Obama administration by taking unilateral action on hot-button issues. She has already said that she would expand on Obama’s unilteral actions granting amnesty to millions of illegal aliens if Congress fails to pass immigration reform.

Guns? So just what is it you are proposing?

This is a different kind of video for a Saturday. The left screeches that something has to be done about guns after the recent violence. This riff done over at MSNBC should bring a chuckle. When pressed on exactly what should be done, the wandering spin begins.

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke gently makes the same point by pressing Mark Halperin and then Mika Brzezinski to explain their policy ideas when both demand action. The result is the same in both cases — they fume, they growl about Congress, but they have no proposals of their own (via the Free Beacon and Jazz):

Clinton bashes NRA, Supreme Court regarding Gun Control

Hillary at her best when she is voicing her animus for those who support the Second Amendment. In this must hear audio, she vents her spleen on the Supreme Court, the NRA, George Bush and anyone else who gets in her way. As an aside, sad that the College where the recent shooting took place didn’t have someone who could step up with a carry permit. Do listen to her rant at the link below.

Hillary Clinton slammed the Supreme Court as “wrong on the Second Amendment” and called for reinstating the assault weapons ban during a small private fundraiser in New York last week, according to audio of her remarks obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

“I’m going to speak out, I’m going to do everything I can to rally people against this pernicious, corrupting influence of the NRA and we’re going to do whatever we can,” she said.

Clinton argued that the NRA has “so intimidated elected members of Congress and other legislative bodies that these people are passing the most absurd laws.”

“The idea that you can have an open carry permit with an AK-47 over your shoulder walking up and down the aisles of a supermarket is just despicable,” she said.

Hillary Clinton and her 25 percent tax on guns

If you are anything like me, I am getting weary of the Clinton server issue. While we look at her latest shiny object, her long history and baggage never comes to the fore. She was and is nothing more than a two-bit attorney from Arkansas that rode her husband’s coattails to fame and fortune. Her first taste of evil doing came with the Nixon impeachment- hiding documents, and she has never looked back.  One of her first attempts at notoriety came with a Senate hearing very soon after she arrived at the White House. Obama was never vetted, let us not let Hillary off the hook this time.

As she testified before the tax-writing Senate Finance Committee on Sept. 30, 1993, Hillary Clinton was asked by Sen. Bill Bradley (D-N.J.) if she supported the imposition of a new, 25 percent national sales tax on guns. Clinton emphatically endorsed the tax, stating: “I am all for that.”

As reported by the Associated Press on Oct. 1, 1993:

Sen. Bill Bradley, D-N.J., picked up Mrs. Clinton’s support for his idea of slapping stiff taxes on ”purveyors of violence:” a 25 percent sales tax on guns and $2,500 license fees for gun dealers.

”Speaking personally … I’m all for that,” said the first lady. But she stressed she was just speaking for herself.

”Well, let me say that there is no more important personal endorsement in the country today, and I thank you very much,” said a pleased-as-punch Bradley.

After she publically endorsed the 25 percent gun tax in congressional testimony, she made sure that everyone understood how important this was to her, saying: “I am speaking personally, but I feel very strongly about that.”

Remarkably, although the hearing was broadcast on C-SPAN and Clinton’s 25 percent gun tax endorsement was noted at the time by the AP, the Washington Post, the New York Times and others, a search of leading news databases reveals not a single media mention since 1993. Americans for Tax Reform is now highlighting the gun tax endorsement as the latest addition to its dossier of Clinton’s tax positions, available at HighTaxHillary.com. 

Obama back at it, wants UN to control guns via Treaty

We should have learned with the fiasco over the so-called Iran nuclear deal. Obama went straight to the U.N. Let us not forget this little number called the UN Arms Trade Treaty. He wants our guns registered big time for a start, and here is how he plans on doing it. Here we go:

On August 24 officials from the Obama administration will be attending the UN Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) conference in Mexico City.

The ATT was signed by Secretary of State John Kerry on September 25, 2013 but never ratified by the US Senate. Nevertheless, Gun Owners of America reports that Obama officials will be in Mexico City for the conference.

Breitbart News previously reported that the ATT is an international gun control treaty designed to be implemented apart from, or in spite of, the general framework of governance for countries that are signatories to it.

Thus, while it will not do away with the Second Amendment on paper, it will subjugate the Second Amendment to the ATT’s gun controls if Obama administration officials return and implement the plans they will discuss in Mexico City.


Published on Aug 20, 2015 (Notes from video)

The UN Small Arms Conference — which takes place on August 24 in Mexico — is the “first step” in implementing the UN Small Arms Treaty, which is still waiting ratification by the Senate.

This treaty requires signing nations to “establish and maintain a national control system, including a national control list.” That means not just NATIONAL gun registration, but GLOBAL gun registration, as well (according to Article V, Section 4 of the treaty).

Over the past century, we have seen registration lists used as a prelude to gun confiscation in countries like Rwanda, Cambodia and many more. Gun confiscation, in turn, led to horrific genocide many of these countries — including Rwanda and Cambodia.

Imagine dictators around the world — with access to the UN blue helmets (aka, the UN military force) — having the names of Americans on record as being gun owners.

It’s preposterous! And this is why the Senate MUST kill this toxic agreement.

Please take action to defend your gun rights. Urge your Senators to vote NO on any agreement reached at the Mexico UN conference. Get more information at http://www.gunowners.org

Bill Clinton responsible for gun free zones on military bases

I have been on a road trip, and missed out on posting yesterday, thus slow to post this gem. Once again the Clintons can be found to be a part of the underbelly of the latest massacre of our home front military.

It hasn’t always been the case that only MPs can carry firearms on U.S. military bases. A mere twenty years ago, “gun free zones” made their way to these facilities under the watch of President Bill Clinton.

According to a Washington Times editorial written days after the Nov. 5, 2009 attack on soldiers at Fort Hood, one of Clinton’s “first acts upon taking office… was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases.”

Clinton’s actions birthed Army regulations “forbidding military personnel from carrying their personal firearms and making it almost impossible for commanders to issue firearms to soldiers in the U.S. for personal protection.”

In other words, thanks to Clinton, citizens who join the military to use guns to defend liberty abroad cannot practice their constitutional right to keep and bear arms while on active duty at home.

As the Times editorial board put it: “Because of Mr. Clinton, terrorists would face more return fire if they attacked a Texas Wal-Mart than the gunman faced at Fort Hood.”

The same theme ran true at the Navy Yard in DC on September 16. Police were called after the shooter opened fired, and reports indicate it took approximately three to seven minutes for them to arrive. Each minute is an eternity when a lunatic with a weapon decides the “gun free zone” rules do not apply to him.

When Did Military Bases Become 'Gun-Free Zones'?

Thanks Bill.   From Breitbart September 2013.

ATF to ban most AR-15 Ammo

More than one way to skin a cat, or destroy our Second Amendment rights. Now more than ever, we need our weapons. Here we go:

In a move clearly intended by the Obama Administration to suppress the acquisition, ownership and use of AR-15s and other .223 caliber general purpose rifles, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives unexpectedly announced today that it intends to ban commonplace M855 ball ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.” The decision continues Obama’s use of his executive authority to impose gun control restrictions and bypass Congress.

It isn’t even the third week of February, and the BATFE has already taken three major executive actions on gun control. First, it was a major change to what activities constitute regulated “manufacturing” of firearms. Next, BATFE reversed a less than year old position on firing a shouldered “pistol.”

Now, BATFE has released a “Framework for Determining Whether Certain Projectiles are ‘Primarily Intended for Sporting Purposes’ Within the Meaning of 18 U.S.C. 921(a)(17)(c)”,

BATFE is accepting comments until March 16, 2015 on this indefensible attempt to disrupt ammunition for the most popular rifle in America.
