Obama's assault on 2nd Amendment Fires up again

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure most of you have seen the news or read today's paper. Obama is again coming after our guns, this time with executive orders. He's shown he can get away with making laws without Congress, so he is going to issue executive orders concerning background checks and sale of guns to "keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people." I can only imagine who he thinks is "dangerous". Certainly there will be no mention of Muslims, so that leaves you and me. It will be stated to sound like he is doing the country a favor, and that is how the newspapers will report it. It's already happening in California right now....family members there can deem any family member "a threat", and a California judge will be only too happy to confiscate their guns. No proof really needed.

People need to start anew reading "executive orders" as "rule by decree", before it gets to where it can't be stopped. It may be to that point already, given the milk-toast nature of our Republicans in Congress. It's time we put pressure on all our Texas representatives and senators to resist, by lawsuits the courts will probably not act on, and bills that prevent this from happeniing, knowing he will veto them, but at least make the effort, and not sit back and wring their hands until the next election. With the precedent having been established of unbridled use of executive power to make law, gun ownership in this country will be dead in 5 years if Hillary Clinton is elected president. We have this year to get our legislators to act, and 11 months to find an electable Republican candidate. So far we have neither. This needs to be the most active year ever for true patriots. If we fail, the term "patriot" will fade into history, as there will no longer be a meaningful definition of it. If this post is deemed too political, so be it. But it's time to take action.

All too real. Every time I hear about an "executive order" all I can think of is "who made him King"? One possible solution is to file suit and seek an immediate injunction. Takes money and time, which may dissuade most. Executive orders sure seem like they violate the separation of powers between congress and the executive bracnches of government. The framers of the constitution intended for there to be checks and balances for the protection of individual rights but big government seems to wipe them out one order at a time.

To paraphrase from an article by an honest Socialist:

 

"Government always sets the rules!

 

Those who control government, either directly or behind the scenes, always determine the extent to which different classes of citizens share in the productivity of society, or even of their own productivity. If our government wants to create a vibrant middle class, then that's what it does. If it wants society's elites to become a new class of royalty, and workers barely survive, well then, government makes it happen. That's the direction we've been going for the last 50 years and it's no accident."

 

It's going to be this way with gun control.

 

Ever since the assassination of JFK, when the "modern" era of US Government learned that they could, quite literally, get away with murder, this country has been on a steady course of destruction. From financial malfeasance to the erosion of civil liberties, with few exceptions, the US Government has been bent on destroying the working classes and their liberties while developing a caste of the uber-elite to whom the "rules" do not apply. Obama is one of these elites (why is not fully known but I have my suspicions) as well as the Bushes and the Clintons.

 

The fact is as long as Americans are willing to play by the rules sent down from those upon high, things will not change for the better in this country. The game is rigged, the fix is in. Thinking anything is going to change via the ballot box is hopeless, esp. as the inconsistencies with the last national election's electronic voting fiascoes proved.

 

History shows time and time again how this game ends. No one wants to discuss it but burying one's head in the sand won't change the outcome. All true patriots had better prepare themselves for some difficult times ahead though for most of us on this board the change may be slow enough that we will no longer be around to witness the end game. We might have a chance if we can somehow educate our law enforcement and military communities about what true liberty is and was and adherence to Constitutional Law. They will be instrumental in deciding whether this country come back from the brink or not. Blind faith and obedience to the government will only hasten our decline. They must be willing to think for themselves and have the conviction to resist and remain morally strong. I doubt most young Americans know, or even care, what is happening to them. We'll see.

Republicans need to start making use of Democrat practices, if they know how. One of our "courageous" southern lawmakers needs to file suit in a southern district court known to hold conservative tendencies, and get an injunction to prevent the implementation of the new decrees. It would then be appealed to the 5th Circuit Court, which has at least a 50-50 chance of upholding the lower court, in this Second Amendment case. Chances are good it could be drug out past the November election and not be finalized. It would be interesting to see if Obama would ignore a court ruling. I wouldn't put it past him. If we lose in November, it won't matter. The implication of no one being willing to step up to the plate and halting what is currently going on in this administration goes far beyond the Second Amendment, however. The Second Amendment needs to be the line drawn in the sand, and it needs to be drawn now. Time is not on our side.
