NRA’s Birthday!!!!!!

It’s its 137th

Dismayed by the lack of marksmanship shown by their troops, Union veterans Col. William C. Church and Gen. George Wingate formed the National Rifle Association in 1871. The primary goal of the association would be to “promote and encourage rifle shooting on a scientific basis,” according to a magazine editorial written by Church.

This question is found on the application for Obama’s Administration. I’m guessing this is a deal breaker if you own anything other then an old shotgun that has been passed down in your family.

Question 59:

Do you or any members of your immediate family own a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.

Not just yourself but your family too.  If someone in my family got asked that question and had to tell them to get a job, I would not be happy, its none of their business how many guns I own or if I do at all, espeically since I am not the one that is applying for that job.

With everyones attention on the economy, everyone has seem to forgotten about Obama’s plan to restrict our second amendment rights. He wants to put in place a permanent assault weapons ban. He wants to close the “Gun show loophole”, which is not a loophole at all. He also wants gun manufacturers to make their designs much more complex, thus more expensive, by placing biometric shooter identification into the gun. He also wants to repeal the Tiahrt Amendment which will make anti-gunners able to sue gun manufactures when a criminal uses a firearm in a crime.

However the page Obama placed on his website www.change.gov quickly disappeared down the memory hole after staff realized their plans had been revealed just a bit too soon. But here is a snapshot of the article.

Of course all of that is just talk, maybe he won’t actually follow through.  Well lets have a look at what he has done in the past.

Obama has deep ties to extreme gun control advocacy groups. He sat on the board of the Chicago-based Joyce Foundation for eight years and made over $70,000 in directors fees. The Joyce Foundation helps fund groups trying to further the cause of gun control.

Illinois State Senate to draft Senate Bill 2165 which would assert a right of self defense in cases such as DeMar’s. The measure passed by a vote of 38 – 20. The bill passed the State House, was vetoed by Governor Rod Blagojevich, only to have the veto overridden by a vote of 86 – 25. As expected, Obama was sure to vote against the bill both times it came before him.

He has voiced support for changing some states, “flawed conceal carry laws” through a federal law repealing any conceal carry permits that have been issued by any state. He has also stated his support to ban the manufacture, sale, and possession of all handguns and also to ban rifle ammunition very widely used for hunting. On the tax front, he proposes increasing the taxes on firearms and ammunition by 500%. That is not a typo; he is in support of a 500% tax increase. Obama’s plan would also require a government-issued license in order to own or purchase a firearm.

He can say he will keep our Second Amendment rights, but his history of voting agaisnt the 2nd Amendment and agaisnt gun owners is clear. His senseable gun control laws are not so senseable to most gun owners and go agaisnt the Bill of Rights.

After months and months of telling us he would not take our guns away, what does he tell us he is going to do….you guessed it, he wants to take away your guns.

NRA-ILA talks about his plans for the next four years.

Sound familiar,

Step 1: Take away their guns.  How to they fight back without a means. Hitler took away guns, Castro took away guns, Stalin took away guns, you think Obama will let us keep ours?

Step 2: Make his own civilian security force and

“We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Who knows how they are planning on paying for that, probably from selling all our guns they just took.

Certainly there have been initiatives like this elsewhere – Cuba, the Soviet Union, China, Venezuela, North Korea.  But this is a free country last time I looked.

Step 3:  Coming Soon!

With Democrats owning the House, the Senate and the White House the 2nd amendment is in trouble. Obama is going to be one of the most anti-gun presidents in history if he follows his previous path of gun bans.  This has led many of gun owners to stock up.  I know I have plans for at least two more guns on my wish list that I am planning on getting before the end of the year, I would have gotten them either way the election went, but this just gives me a little push to do it sooner instead of later, just in case.

From Tulsa World,

Gun enthusiasts nationwide are stocking up on firearms out of fears that the combination of an Obama administration and a Democrat-dominated Congress will result in tough new gun laws.

“I think they’re going to really try to crack down on guns and make it harder for people to try to purchase them,” said Smith, 32, who taught all five of her children — ages 4 to 10 — to shoot because the family relies on game for food.

Last month, as an Obama win looked increasingly inevitable, there were more than 108,000 more background checks for gun purchases than in October 2007, a 15 percent increase. And they were up about 8 percent for the year as of Oct. 26, according to the FBI.
