The $500,000,000 Gun Grab Plan
Herr Obama took the first steps today that all dictators around the globe and over the ages take and that is to disarm the citizens. The Left has coined a new replacement phrase for “Gun Control” which is now “Gun Violence”. Who could be against Gun Violence? The Left did the same when they renamed unborn children “Embryos” to lessen the guilt felt by those who aborted their unborn babies. How about changing Global Warming to Climate Change! Now they have reassigned the medical community to also be firearms experts and break the doctor-patient relationship by requiring your doctor to report your personal firearm ownership and use within your own home. Worse yet, they can question you children, without you being present, to grill them on the “gun culture” in your home then report their findings to Herr Obama. Maybe we should go to a gun shop to get our physical!
The 23 “Executive Orders” that Obama is putting in place are filled with nice sounding words but basically give other Federal agencies unilateral control over the creation of new unlawful gun regulations and the unlawful power to enforce their own unlawful regulations! “Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.” In short, Katherine Sibelius will make sure that she can direct doctors to rat on the patients regarding their lawful ownership and use of guns within their homes. There is no law that grants this power to the president or the Secretary of HHS but Herr Obama did it anyway. What Obama is setting up is a regulatory web that will be used to squeeze guns out of the hands of law-abiding citizens while doing nothing to prevent actual atrocities like the Newtown massacre.
When you peel off the smoke screen around the 23 EOs, it is easy to see where this is all heading.
- The Federal Government is setting up National Background Checks and a national database to track all LAWFULLY purchased firearms. They will use the threat of withholding federal funds from State and Local entities who may refuse to implement the National Background Checks even if those agencies believe that this EO is unlawful. Obama also will empower ALL Federal Agencies to provide “relevant” data for the national gun control database. So, your right to privacy provided by the Constitution is totally out the window. REMEMBER, ALL FEDERAL DATA IS SUBJECT TO A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT LAWSUIT TO MAKE THAT DATA PUBLIC…
- Expanding Who Cannot Own Firearms: Eric Holder, Fast and Furious Fame, is empowered to circumvent current law that identifies categories of individuals prohibited from purchasing guns and come up with his own categories without being lawfully passed by Congress. There are no limits in the EO on Holder so he can create whatever categories he thinks necessary! You could deny Catholics, Tea Party Members, or whoever this bunch of outlaws deem dangerous.
- Place Gun Control Under Healthcare: Several of the EOs empower Kathryn Sibelius of HHS to come up with “guidelines” that require doctors to gather gun information on families who lawfully own firearms by documenting interviews they conduct with their patients and their patients children then pass this information onto the Federal Government!
- Doctors will be given marching orders on how to counsel patients on safe gun use and storage! Who made doctors experts on firearms?
- Doctors will be required to report any patient that they feel may be a “risk” to society. This will foster over reporting in order for the doctor not to be sued if one of their patients goes out and stabs someone! This will do wonders for malpractice insurance rates!
- Katherine Sibelius has the power to rewrite Obamacare and beef up mental health coverage requirements and direct the State exchanges on what they have to cover. That will do wonders for health care premiums.
- Payoff to Teacher’s Unions: Obama included “incentives” for schools to hire school “resource officers”. These are not armed guards but additional staff to talk the shooters out of shooting students and probably counseling the shooter in order to raise his self-esteem.
Most of the 23 EOs do not even require and EO. Why does Obama need an EO to nominate an ATF direct for the senate to ratify. THAT IS HIS JOB TO NOMINATE CABINET POSITIONS. Obama is going to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations. DUH! This is already the law. They are kept in evidence until after the prosecution then destroyed. I am sure Eric Holder will be able to trace the guns like he did with Fast and Furious!
Well, we are witnessing the First Amendment being trashed by Obama’s assault on the Freedom of Religion. Now he is trashing the 2nd Amendment. He is doing both by merely Trashing the US Constitution and its limits on Presidential Authority. You are seeing the “Transformation of America” that Obama promised you!
