The scariest part of Obama’s speech today on gun control was not what he said, or his tears, but what he did not say. What he did not say is what the REGULATIONS would look like that will be spawned from his Executive Order.
Pick one of the alphabet agencies in DC who will be developing varying levels of regulations to enforce the emperor’s decree. These regulations will range from which felonies would disqualify gun ownership to what Medical condition would disqualify gun ownership, with or without a Doctor turning you in. The scariest regulations may very well be hatched out of the Medical/Mental conditions prohibition.
Why, because a Bureaucrat will not need a Doctor to turn you in as a Whack Job, your Prescriptions will do that Instead.
Think about the databases that are being constructed under Obamacare every time you go to the doctor, hospital, clinic, and YOUR PHARMACIST. All the agencies will have to do is develop a list of drugs that MAY impair your ability to be a responsible gun owner. In the final analysis, there is nothing stopping a bureaucrat from putting aspirin on the list.
If you are a woman, you may be or have been prescribed an anti-depressant for postpartum depression for a short period of time. If you are a grieving widow or widower, you may be or have been prescribed a sedative for a short period of time. Both may land you in the sights of bureaucratic exclusion from gun ownership.
Do you take medications like Ambien, Valium, Haldol, Lexapro, Celexa, Luvox, Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, or one of the countless medicines to treat mild to severe insomnia, anti-anxiety, or psychiatric conditions? You may be black listed from owning a fire arm under Obama’s new gun control push. And, you may or may not even be aware of why you were declined his highness’s permission to arm yourself and protect your family. It may be because some pimple faced, porn surfing, bureaucrat put your medication on the hit list! Now all of a sudden you are lumped in with those paradigms of virtue, Adam Lanza (Newtown), James Holmes (Colorado Theatre), Aaron Alexis (Naval Yard), Nidal Hasan (Ft. Hood), and a host of others.
This is just one example of how Obama’s new gun control push will, not if, morph into an exclusionary right to bear arms based on Obama’s view of the general good!
There are countless other sibling regulations that will spring up for the left to use to turn the screw even tighter against gun ownership. Put your tin hat on:
THEIR GOAL IS TO REMOVE GUNS FROM THE CITIZENRY, PERIOD.
THIS IS TRUE FOR THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT.
WHY DO YOU THINK CONGRESS HAS NOT DEALT WITH THIS IN THE PAST?
NOW THEY CAN ALL HIDE BEHIND OBAMA’S BIG SKIRT AND CLAIM THEY DID NOT LEGISLATE GUN CONTROL!
