It's Not About Gun Control - It's About a Total Ban on Civilian Gun Ownership

Last night at the NRA Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas. Glenn Beck warned NRA members that the freedom of all mankind is at stake and the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

They want to fundamentally transform our country and theyve just about finished the project, Beck told an audience of thousands Saturday evening at the NRA Stand and Fight Rally, They feel they must regulate us until we comply, but I will not comply.

Neither universal background checks nor any other proposed legislation is about gun control.  ITS ALL ABOUT A TOTAL BAN AND SUBSEQUENT CONFISCATION OF CIVILIAN OWNED GUNS. PERIOD.

During his 1996 Senate campaign Obama was asked, “Do you support legislation to ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns?”  His answer was “Yes.  When campaigning for president in 2004, Obama said,  “I continue to support a [federal] ban on concealed carry.

Feinsteins “assault weapons” ban, supported by both Obama and Bloomberg would have enacted confiscation over a generation.  Gun owners would not immediately surrender their firearms, but because of the angle of the grip on the shotgun, or more than a dozen other cosmetic caveats, it would be a felony offense to pass hundreds of models of legally purchased and possessed firearms to anyone else, including family members, when you die.  Millions of guns would be confiscated by the government and destroyed over a generation.mm“We’re not taking any guns away from you, just all future generations.”

James W. Porter II, who will be elected president by the NRA board of directors tomorrow said yesterday, I hear some Americans say with the last election, the country is lost. No, no. An election was lost.

Theres another election more important for the second amendment right around the corner, Porter said. With the U.S. Senate and the House (both) up for grabs, we as individual NRA members can direct the massive energy of spontaneous combustion to gain the political high ground. We do that and Obama can be stopped.

Progressives are working full time to drive a wedge between NRA leadership and its members. But their strategy is fundamentally flawed.  The NRA, like the GOP, loses members when their organizations move to the left, not to the right.  Progressives dont get it.  The average NRA member does.

Efforts to pass gun-control legislation have only made the National Rifle Association stronger, as the membership rolls now surpass a record 5 million, NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre told the gun rights groups annual meeting Saturday.

The state of the NRA is stronger and larger than it has ever been, LaPierre said during the annual meeting attended by over 75,000 NRA members. Our commitment to freedom is unwavering and our growth is unprecedented. By the time were finished, the NRA must and will be 10 million strong.

About one-tenth of the members have joined in the past six months, the NRA says.

Political elites and their allies in the media are pushing a gun-control agenda that will lead to gun confiscation and a more dangerous America.

The NRA, LaPierre said, is at the middle of the river of Americas mainstream, and what we want is exactly what most Americans want, he said.

Progressives Planning to Come Back for Your Guns

Progressives will NEVER give up on banning civilian ownership of firearms.  See UK, Canada and Australia for details. 

A week after the Senate failed to come up with 60 votes to pass more gun control measures Crazy Joe Biden regrouped with gun control advocates yesterday and reassured them the White House isnt giving up the fight.

Biden made a real commitment to keep pushing for more gun control laws, said Pia Carusone, executive director of Americans for Responsible Solutions, a gun control PAC run by former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband Mark Kelly.

Bidens message to the groups was, Its the beginning. Its not the end, said Carusone. The tone of the meeting was very positive. There is a collective sense that we are on the right side of history.

Yesterday the New York Times reported that talks to revive gun control legislation are under way on Capitol Hill.  Drawing on the lessons from battles in the 1980s and ’90s over the Brady Bill, which failed in Congress several times before ultimately passing, gun control supporters believe they can prevail.

According to the NY Times, gun control groups and Obama allies are already turning an eye to 2014, plotting payback for senators who voted against expanded background checks. Giffords group is even prepared to run ads against Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who is a close friend of Giffords but who also voted against background checks.

Senator Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire,  only one out of 22 senators on the East Coast north of Virginia who voted against the Manchin-Toomey-Schumer gun control amendment has been the target lately of some of the most furious lobbying by gun control proponents.  The NY Times says local newspapers have been inundated with letters to the editor denouncing her vote, and the gun grabbers have run radio ads saying she “ignored the will of the people”.

The gun grabbers will never give up and gun owners (in at least 40 states) are willing to waive their Second Amendment rights and give up their guns.  This fight will play out in the 2014 mid-term elections.  Supporters of Second Amendment civil rights, including Democrats who voted against Manchin-Toomey-Schumer need to be supported with our time and treasure, to defeat the gun banners.

Senators who supported the Schumer/Bloomberg backed amendment, including Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) MUST be opposed and defeated.

According to the Progressive Propaganda publication, the Huffington Post, several senators have confided to Crazy Joe Biden that they are feeling the backlash from constituents.

Those senators told him that they needed to be assured there was adequate support for expanded gun control to pass because they did not want to take such a great political risk on something that was doomed to fail. Those Senators are vulnerable and MUST be defeated to protect our Second Amendment civil rights.

We can not afford to let our guard down for a minute.  The Progressives are coming for our guns.

I think were going to bring back that bill and address it, said Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), who has been leading the charge for action in the wake of the Newtown shootings. It may be months, it may be half a year. But the Majority Leader seems committed to bringing it back.

Control of Social Media by the Progressive Propaganda Machine 

Adolph Hitler was the head of state and supreme commander of the armed forces, as well as head of government and of the monopoly party, the NSDAP. Hitler held total power in Germany, unrestricted by any constitutional constraints.

Look familiar? The Progressive Propaganda Machine is working 24/7/365 to control social media.

The United States Constitution is the only obstacle standing between liberty and tyranny in America. The liberal fascist Party in the United States, commonly call the Democrats, spend the bulk of their time and treasure eroding the Bill of Rights while subverting the Constitution.

Their primary weapons of the Left in their war against FREEDOM have been the liberal education system along with the progressive media and entertainment industry.  Progressives know they must control news and information to transform the Republic into the liberal fascist Nanny State.  

Between the death of Hindenburg in August 1934 and the expansion into Austria and the Sudetenland four years later Hitler was indeed successful in gaining the backing of the vast majority of the German people, something of immeasurable importance for the disastrous course of German policy ahead.

Despite the absurdity of the election results, amid ballot-rigging, electoral manipulation and intense propaganda to conform according to the official figures 98.9% voted for the Führer. Progressive propaganda machines work.

The primary means of information distribution has changed from main stream to social media.  Today most people are getting their news and information from Social Media and the internet.  Less than 1,000,000 of the 315,000,000 U.S. population watch Rachel Maddow or any MSNBC program on any day. 

The Progressive Propaganda machine is using fake accounts on social media to spread their disinformation.

56% of Americans have a profile on a social networking site

76% of Twitter users now post status updates

Twitter users are 33% more likely to be Democrats

40% of Twitter users are Democrats, compared to 30% of the U.S. population overall. The percentage of Republicans and Independents on Twitter mirrors the U.S. average almost precisely.

If youre reading this post, you should seriously considering having an active Twitter and Facebook account. Without push back from patriots, the liberal fascists will continue to fundamentally change and control America.  See 2008 & 2012 presidential election results for details.

Dirty Harry Kills Modern Sporting Rifle Ban in the Senate

Heres some good news: Senator Dianne Feinstein, reacted with anger on Tuesday after being told by Dirty Harry Reid that gun control legislation the Senate is to consider next month will not include the reinstatement of an assault weapons ban, a measure she had fought desperately to keep.

It is also possible that senators who favor gun rights will offer a flood of pro-gun amendments, many of them likely to pass the full Senate, which could essentially turn a bill intended to strengthen gun regulations into one that enhances gun rights, according to the New York Times.  We can only hope!

Perhaps this explains Feinstein erupting in a rare display of public anger when Senator Ted Cruz questioned her understanding of the Constitution.  She already knew her assault weapons ban would be DOA on the Senate floor.

As it stands, the assault weapons ban will still receive a vote as an amendment to the underlying package, as will a separate measure that would limit magazine sizes to 10 rounds. Neither are expected to pass as of this posting.  But things can change very quickly.  Democrats will always use tragedy to advance a liberal fascist political agenda.  Thats why they call themselves progressives

Senate Majority Leader Reid admitted on the floor Tuesday that even as an amendment the assault weapons ban had no chance at passage.  ”But right now her amendment, using the most optimistic numbers, has less than 40 votes. I — that’s not 60.”

Of course Feinstein and the left are already blaming the NRA for killing the bill.  While the NRA did their job lobbying for their members, it was Democrat politicians fear of losing their 2014 elections, not the NRA that killed the assault weapons ban.

One look at the Democratic incumbents who have to stand for re-election in November 2014 and it’s clear why getting a bill with an assault weapons ban in it was so politically difficult. Democrats are trying to hold onto seats in Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Carolina, South Dakota and West Virginia (among others) — all states where gun rights are viewed as part and parcel of the culture and where there remains significant resistance to curtailing those rights.

Supporters of Feinsteins bill never offered a plausible, let alone persuasive, explanation for the distinction she drew between the guns she deemed legitimate and the dreaded assault weapons she sought to ban. The closer you looked at the bill, the less sense it made, a fact that Feinstein tried to paper over by encouraging people to conflate modern sporting rifles with the fully automatic select fire machine guns used in the military.

That flagrant fraud sufficed to win passage of the federal assault weapon ban that expired in 2004 (which was also sponsored by Feinstein), and it continues to influence public opinion. But this time around it was not enough to obscure the absurdity of Feinstens attempt to distinguish between good and evil guns by reference to irrelevant features such as barrel shrouds and adjustable stocks. With no evidence or arguments to offer, Feinstein despicably invoked dead, dismembered children in a transparent bid to short-circuit logical thought.

All the liberal newspapers are saying the assault weapons ban has been dropped for now.  They are not going away.  They will jump on the graves on children at the first opportunity and start pushing their political agenda via the progressive media.  We can not let our guard down for a second.  There is not a day that passes that the left does attempt to limit freedom and subvert the Constitution to advance statism.

The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; … Thomas Jefferson

UN Small Arms Treaty Negotiations Re-Open Today

Negotiations open at the United Nations in New York on the Arms Trade Treaty, which would require countries to determine whether weapons they sell would be used to commit serious human rights violations, terrorism or transnational organized crime.

The keys to the Arms Trade Treaty are in Obama’s hands. Last year the administration stalled negotiations following a campaign by law abiding gun owners in the United States. But this March left wing gun grabbing progressives have another chance to pass a treaty that will interfered with Second Amendment rights in America.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) has vowed to fight the international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global arms trade.  A drafting conference in July collapsed because gun owners in the U.S. and other nations put pressure on their elected officials to keep the U.N. from interfering with national sovereignty.

The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects the right to bear arms in the United States. The U.N. Small Arms Treaty could require the U.S. government to enact legislation to implement it, which would lead to unconstitutional restrictions on gun ownership.

U.N. delegates and gun-control activists say the July treaty negotiations fell apart largely because Obama, fearing attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney before the Nov. 6 election if his administration was seen as supporting the pact.

We object to is the inclusion of civilian firearms within the scope of the treaty.  This is a treaty that really should address the transfer of large numbers of military weapons that leads to human rights abuses.

The treaty could infringe on gun rights guaranteed under the Second Amendment in the United States and could force the United States to participate in an international firearms registry.

The treaty, which has been years in the making, would cover battle tanks, artillery, combat aircraft, warships and missiles as well as small arms and light weapons. Global sales of conventional arms reach tens of billions of dollars annually, and the biggest players are the United States, China and Russia.

If you need another reason to oppose the treaty, officials at Amnesty International and other organizations said they were confident that China and Russia would support the final draft, which is expected to be negotiated next week.

The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them.
