Trump promises to take Obama-sized bite out of Second Amendment

Published

on

During the presidency of Barack Obama, conservatives were justifiably concerned over his multi-faceted attack on the Constitution as he advanced a host of liberal priorities important to his Democratic Socialist base. But it looks like Obama will be relegated to playing second fiddle to the New York liberal now occupying the Oval Office.

Just one day after announcing the launch of his 2020 re-election campaign, Donald Trump held a “bipartisan” meeting with legislators to discuss how he plans to take an Obama-sized bite out of the Second Amendment using Obama’s favorite tools: his pen and phone.

With Dianne Feinstein sitting so close that she was practically his lap, Trump informed his liberal friends that he will ban bump stocks by executive order.

“I’m going to write that out. We can do that with an executive order. You won’t have to worry about bump stocks. We can do it without Congress. We have to act.”

But that was just the beginning for Prima Donald.

As the man possessing a successful track record of attacking the First Amendment rights to free speech and a free press, Trump decided he would incorporate his success at denying the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments’ right to due process to his anti-Second Amendment plans.

In response to a suggestion from Vice President Pence that due process rights be protected in the gun-control debate, Trump let those in attendance know that his plan to destroy the right to bear arms couldn’t be bothered with such a pesky detail, saying, “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”

As I wrote just two days ago, Trump and the party formerly known as Republican are working hand-in-hand with Democrats to disarm America. So, any thought you might have that these GOP cowards in Congress wills stop Trump’s Obama-inspired policies from succeeding are pure fantasy.

Next up on the anti-Second Amendment agenda is Trump’s stated desire for a complete gun ban for adults 18-21 years old. While it’s being touted as a way to deal with so-called “assault weapons,” language in a bill proposed by Dianne Feinstein essentially bans the purchase of any gun for this age group.

One of the reasons many people voted for Trump was to keep Hillary from continuing Obama’s agenda. Looks to me like they focused on the wrong candidate.

Sheila Jackson Lee tells bald-faced lie about AR-15s to mislead her constituents

Sheila Jackson Lee tells bald-faced lie about AR-15s to mislead her constituents

Reactions to Representative Sheila Jackson Lee’s statement about the AR-15 she supposedly held in her hands have been almost certainly incorrect. Conservatives have said she must be extremely misinformed about firearms to so blatantly mischaracterize them, going so far as to invoke armor-piercing .50 caliber ammunition as the rounds fired by the “scary” weapon.

Many on the right are laughing after she said these rifles weigh as much as 10 moving boxes. They chuckle because they believe she simply lacks the intelligence to properly describe what she allegedly experienced and to confuse a very small round, the .223, with the big daddy round, the .50.

I don’t believe she was being ignorant. I refuse to believe that anyone elected to Capitol Hill can be that unintelligent. Therefore, I firmly believe she is telling these bald-faced lies willfully and with the intention of misleading her constituents for the sake of gun control. She isn’t stupid. She just believes her voters are stupid. That’s the only logical explanation for this:

We must accept that anything spoken by certain Democrats (most of them, in fact) has a high degree of likeliness of being an outright lie. They do not believe in the truth because the truth doesn’t match their agenda.

Why isn’t ‘Beto’ doing better?

Why isnt Beto doing better

Gun confiscation is all the rage according to the left, so why isn’t Robert Francis O’Rourke surging in popularity?

According to Robert Francis and his merry band of liberty busters, patriots around the country cannot wait to shred and burn their Modern Day Muskets in a funeral pyre worthy of a Viking princess. AR-15’s are stacking up like cord-wood in Walmart dumpsters or sinking to the depths of lakes everywhere.

Good people are giving up their guns at will because it will have the magical effect of having them disappear from the hand of criminals. Innocent folks are disarming themselves because they know that the miscreants of our society will also do the same.

The inestimable logic of ‘Beto’ O’Rourke

Everyone knows that common sense civil liberties are easily negated by teenagers crying on the tele; that’s the fine print in the Constitution everyone misses. We are endowed by our creator with certain inalienable human rights* [But only if absolutely no one in the country is afraid of anything for at least 10 years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes last] That’s the fear clause that’s tucked in behind commerce, the constitutional Swiss army knife.

One can easily envision people approaching politicians in a restroom to tell them of a lifelong desire to rid themselves of an inalienable human right. Then there are those who dream of a SWAT team to breaking down their door at 3:00 AM to seize their hard-earned property at gunpoint. Even better are those looking forward to a sweet $100 gift certificate in exchange for an $800 Rifle with a $600 optic.

The logic being that when it comes to self-preservation, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. Why defend yourself when you can wait a lifetime for the coroner to draw a chalk outline around your lifeless body?

‘Beto’: Let’s confiscate all the guns

In the world of the authoritarian socialist left, taking private property is very much like eating potato crisps – you can’t confiscate just one. Once they taste the visceral thrill of subjugating their political enemies and taking their property they can’t help themselves. The Associated Press has already produced articles on the subject: In gun buyback talk, how do you round up so many weapons? Proceeding from a standpoint that it’s perfectly acceptable to deprive people of their inalienable human rights.

As reported by the Daily Wire, Robert Francis O’Rourke has signaled that he is open to Confiscating ALL Semi-Automatic Firearms. His stated plans include a national buyback program for banned assault weapons and handguns  Since there is no set definition of the term ‘assault weapon’ this could mean anything that could be used as a weapon to assault someone.

These things begin with the what has been demonized the most, then they move on to everything else. The liberty grabbing would start with AR-15’s and as noted in the Daily Wire article, would expand to all semi-automatic firearms. Then they will want all handguns – revolvers included. Then anything else they want to define as being an ‘assault weapon’.

Why isn’t ‘Beto’ doing better?

Thus we return to our central question. According to polling from the national socialist media, supposedly, 90% of the country is fully on board with gun confiscation accompanied with every ancillary control scheme imaginable. Given that supposed environment, a candidate espousing such rhetoric should be soaring in the polls. NRA members should be hoisting the man on their shoulders as a national hero who was willing to speak to what everyone desires.

But that isn’t taking place is it? The innermost statist desires of one Robert Francis O’Rourke have failed to bring him up in the polls. Worse yet, while his comrades of the national socialist left didn’t object to his viewpoint, they haven’t exactly embraced it either.

While Robert Francis did his best to push the Overton window as far as it would go, we are seeing that such things have their limits. Patriots of the pro-liberty right can now point to his actions as undeniable proof of the left’s final solution to the liberty problem. Halting their little game incremental moves in liberty control, to evince a design to reduce the country to absolute despotism. The liberty grabber leftists were able to claim victory in Colt temporarily stopping production on AR-15’s, leaving only 278 producers of ARs, but they will take any victory against freedom they can take.

The bottom-line

If everyone in the country, including the estimated 120 – 130 million gun owners, really wanted the government to take private property by force, ‘Beto’ should be doing better, his polling should have a positive upward trend and he should be the talk of the nation.

That isn’t the case. In fact, he has been roundly condemned by his fellow socialists while being inadvertently praised by many on the pro-liberty right. The exact opposite of what would have been predicted by the polling data.

This is clearly a case where most people have finally seen that the left has dropped the mask and has gone full authoritarian. Gun confiscations are just one manifestation, but it is giving everyone pause on just who they people truly are with the exposition of their extremist views. This is why we are answering NO on any more erosion of our inalienable human rights. This is why we are rejecting their socialist national agenda.

There are two beneficiaries to gun control, and you are I aren’t among them

There are two beneficiaries to gun control and you are I arent among them

Gun control is all over the news as just about every Democrat and a growing number of Republican lawmakers are leaning towards some action that will “do something” about mass shootings in America. It’s so clearly an emotion-driven issue, as can be seen by the simple fact that gun control doesn’t work to stop gun violence. But just because gun control doesn’t make us safer doesn’t mean there aren’t people who will benefit from it once enacted.

The first is obvious. Criminals are clear beneficiaries of gun control because they have no intention of abiding by it. Their victims and potential victims, on the other had, are likely going to be compelled to undergo background checks, sign up for gun registries, or have their firearms confiscated in some “buyback” program. Gun control is the best news criminals have had since criminal justice reform.

The second is debatable, not because it isn’t unambiguously true but because these particular beneficiaries pretend they aren’t gaining from it. This is, of course, a lie. Politicians gain greatly from gun control. Not all of them do because not all of them are anti-American radical progressives who envision a nation that bows to socialism and the authoritarian control over our lives by a nanny state. But even those who are not radical progressives get the benefit of applause from the masses who have been indoctrinated into he belief guns are the problem, not criminals or the mentally ill.

When gun control comes around, and it almost certainly will, many Americans will cheer. This will be the same type of enthusiasm many happy sheep experience when they’re being taken to a brand new location. They never know until it’s too late they’re being led to the slaughter. Criminals will be cheering as their victims will be disarmed by laws that criminals, by their nature of living a life of crime, have no intention of obeying. Leftist politicians will cheer because they’ll be one step closer to the oppression they have planned through their socialist ideology.

Republican lawmakers who support gun control will cheer for a while until they realize the enthusiasm they once had from their base evaporated as quickly as our 2nd Amendment rights did when they decided to back gun control. By the time they try to spin it as a necessary evil or whatever other excuse they try to make, it will be too late for them. We will have already moved on to vote for lawmakers who are not willing to break their oath to defend the Constitution.

Criminals love gun control. Authoritarian politicians do, too. If you’re not a gun-toting felon or Marxist politician, then you will not benefit at all from gun control. In fact, its enactment in any form will make you less safe even if you don’t own a gun.
