Obama Wants Our Guns

It didn’t take long. The Sainted One is not even the president yet and already a bill has been introduced to control gun ownership in this country. Representative Bobby Rush (D-IL) has introduced legislation that would make it very difficult for people to obtain firearms. His plan calls for the Attorney General to manage a gun control program which requires gun owners to obtain a license, with picture and thumbprint, in order to be considered. The Attorney General will decide if the person may be issued the license and failure to have or renew a license is a felony punishable by up to 2 years in jail.

This is a blatant assault on the Second Amendment rights of the people in this country. If this makes it to Obama and he signs it then millions of gun owners will be required to apply for a license to own guns. There is no doubt in my military mind that this will also have a cost associated with it. The Attorney General will, if this bill passes, have a database of all gun owners including those who applied and were rejected. The Nazis had such a system and then they disarmed the Jews. This led to the Holocaust. A people disarmed become slaves. This bill will create a national ID for gun owners. Liberals are opposed to a national ID in general but I guess it is OK if it keeps track of the evil gun owners. The bill is in honor a a Chicago kid who was killed on a school bus:

[O]n the afternoon of May 10, 2007, Blair Holt, a junior at Julian High School in Chicago, was killed on a public bus riding home from school when he used his body to shield a girl who was in the line of fire after a young man boarded the bus and started shooting. (In the Findings and Purpose portion)

Chicago already has some of the nation’s most stringent gun control laws. Those laws did not prevent this tragedy because criminals do not obey the law. Does Rush actually think that a criminal will apply for a license and does he think a criminal is worried about a 2 year sentence for owning one when the crimes they commit will lead to more time than that? Keep in mind folks, this law will only affect law abiding citizens and they do not go around using guns illegally.

If you are a gun owner and you voted for Obama then you should turn your guns in and join the peace movement. The warnings were there and they were made public for anyone who paid attention. Barack Obama is a Socialist and the way Socialists rule is to take away the people’s means to resist.

I know that Obama did not write this (at least his name is not on it) but it is odd it came from a politician from his home state and he will most assuredly sign it if it makes it to his desk. He has already stated that the right to bear arms is subject to common sense regulation. In his little mind, this will be common sense. The Democrats are in control and they want to remove any means of resistance that the citizens have available to them and that means that we are in danger of losing our guns.

If this bill gets traction we gun owners are in for a fight. The person that Obama has nominated for Attorney General believes in gun control. He does not believe that gun ownership is an individual right and he will not easily approve any license. For those who might have forgotten, the Second Amendment states:

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

This bill infringes on the right to keep and bear arms. What part of SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED do they have trouble understanding? It is also important to note that gun ownership is necessary for the security of a free state. It would appear they don’t quite want that.

If this bill passes the idea of a peaceful transition of government might become a thing of the past.

As for Bobby Rush, he deserves the firing squad.
