Obama Wants Your Guns! Wait, Does He?

Share

The reality of this post is that I was looking to explain that President Obama doesn’t want your guns and that doing so would be idiotic however while doing research for said post I found an article that should worry all firearms owners. The reason I kept the title is because I truly thought that Obama didn’t want to take my guns and doing so would be political suicide. However I wanted to highlight that my opinion has changed and that while I am still unsure if Obama will make a move to actually take our guns, I am certain that his administration is paving the way for another President to do just that.

Obama has taken a bit of a turn in my opinion and the reasoning behind that is because he seems to enjoy superseding the Supreme Court. In case you missed it Obama made what even Jon Stewart interpreted as threatening remarks that were directed at the Supreme Court over his health care mandate. He was taunting them. Daring them to overturn his healthcare law so that he could somehow overturn their ruling. His remarks were out of bounds so out of bounds that the DOJ had to issue a statement to make sure you know that Obama knows that the courts can overturn his laws. It is with this in mind that I took more stock in what I was reading about the UN Small Arms Control Treaty. The Obama administration has put it’s full weight behind the treaty through Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. How would this treaty affect law abiding gun owners throughout the land? I’m glad you asked.

  1. Enact tougher licensing requirements, creating additional bureaucratic red tape for legal firearms ownership.
  2. Confiscate and destroy all “unauthorized” civilian firearms (exempting those owned by our government of course).
  3. Ban the trade, sale and private ownership of all semi-automatic weapons (any that have magazines even though they still operate in the same one trigger pull – one single “bang” manner as revolvers, a simple fact the ant-gun media never seem to grasp).
  4. Create an international gun registry, clearly setting the stage for full-scale gun confiscation.
  5. In short, overriding our national sovereignty, and in the process, providing license for the federal government to assert preemptive powers over state regulatory powers guaranteed by the Tenth Amendment in addition to our Second Amendment rights.

The United States has been on the path to a police state for a very long time now. The removal of our right to bear arms would certainly be the icing on the cake. What is more frightening than a heavily armed police state when you have absolutely no way to defend yourselves? By the way firearms are not the only thing under attack because free speech, internet privacy and the right to protest have also come under fire recently.

 

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

      At first glance, the article does seem a bit disconcerting but it's not an issue that is new.

      This link might help shed more light on what the UN resolutions are meant to achieve – mostly to better regulate international trade of firearms. As pointed out, trying to remove firearms from American citizens would be impossible because of legal barriers plus it would create a dangerous situation with angry, armed people.

      In my opinion, what many governments are trying to do instead is to make it more difficult to obtain firearms and prevent them from getting into the wrong hands. Making them illegal will only push the trade underground and give criminals firepower over legal owners, which the government does not want.

      My conclusion: the Obama administration already has a lot of enemies and hot issues to deal with to want to pick up another politically devastating policy so I wouldn't worry about it too much, yet.

        I'm not terrified that my guns will be gone tomorrow or within the next few years but I do think that the path is being paved for a new federal ban on firearms of some sort. We Americans have lost so many rights over the last decade that really nothing is sacred anymore. It's already bad enough that your guns can be taken away here along with your right to buy, sell or carry one if you're under investigation for a crime. Not convicted or arrested but just being investigated. Also if you're put on watch list by Homeland or the FBI by accident or a myriad of reasons that isn't terrorism or based on actual convictions then you're also turned down for new purchases. It's not a stretch to believe that the Homeland Security and the FBI types would like to see our guns taken away after all they will always be issued guns.

        It's not an issue that Obama will pick up now but after the election is a completely different story because what does he have to lose? Bush got away with a ton of shit in his second term.
