Recently, we’ve had two different shootouts, one in a movie theater and another at a Sikh temple. The President didn’t say much about it, except for the usual tired clichés about how sad it was. However, White House Press Sec’t Jim Carney let it slip, saying “Pres. Obama will not push for stricter gun laws THIS ELECTION YEAR.” Team Obama doesn’t want to jeopardize BHO’s re-election by banning guns in his first.
In 2008, Obama said he was against gay marriage. In 2012, he said he was for it. Liberal-progressives muttered amongst themselves saying, they always knew he was for it, but had to be against it for the 2008 election. Likewise in 2012, Obama must remain silent and non-committal about guns.
Assuming Barack Obama is re-elected, how will he go about banning guns?
Whether real or created, there will be a major event involving gun violence. The victim(s) could be famous or it could be a large number of people. If the victim is famous, news clips will be played repeatedly with music in the background, because God knows, if a celebrity dies, it’s more tragic.
Newscasters will immediately psychoanalyze the killer as “a loner who just didn’t fit in.” Magically, all the paper work for the guns will appear, indicating that the gun(s) were “legally obtained”. Obama will issue a statement saying something must be done about gun violence.
Stricter regulations? A ban on assault rifles? That’s not what the far-left wants.
The Second Amendment: “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.”
What about ammo? What if the courts are able to get around the Second Amendment by not banning arms, but by banning ammo?
Gun owners will argue that the actions of a lone psychopath are not reason enough to ban guns or ammo, but I’m telling you, your momentum is gone. Why? Eight years of Obama is a definite shift toward a socialist nanny-state that controls everything you do – right down to the food you eat. (Have you seen the commercial where gov’t doctors march right in to a restaurant called “Chubby’s” and confiscate all the hamburgers and chicken nuggets? When “Chubby’s” says, “You can’t do that!” the food police announce that “Somebody has to!”)
How did we come to this?
Obama didn’t get into the White House by himself – he was elected by blacks, women, minorities, gays and the MTV generation. And how did that happen? By letting Democrats define the elections, through the media.
2008: “If you vote for McCain, you’re on the wrong side of history.”
2012: “If you vote for Romney, you’re going backward, not forward.”
“FOREWARD” – Obama’s 2012 slogan – because “hope and change” are so 15 minutes ago. (And maybe because the change we received during the last four years was all bad.)
Oh yeah, “Foreword” is a Communist slogan.
What should I do?
So, after the big event and arguments go back and forth, sometime in the next few years, the Obama Administration passes new gun control laws, similar to England’s.
Gun owners reading this are probably getting a knot in their stomach.
The good news is – even if you’re in the gun-owning minority – the antigun advocates can’t take away your weapons unless you allow them to.
And you know what? That isn’t going to happen.
Former NRA President Charlton Heston used to say, “From my cold, dead hands…” and I believe he meant that. Heston knew about history and dictatorships. “Mr. Nice Guy” Obama attacked Libya militarily without approval of Congress (an impeachable offense) and he is passing new laws like an emperor.
My best advice to you is to stockpile your weapons and ammo. Keep them in good shape and be ready. The government can’t do anything unless you allow it. Do you want to be like the Jews in Nazi Germany being led to the gas chambers and crematoriums? Are you willing to fight for the Second Amendment? I’m not asking you to die for your guns. I’m asking you to live for your guns.
