Obama Signs 23 Executive Orders for a $500 Million Plan to Control Guns

  

Today President Obama called for a new assault-weapons ban and a 10-round limit on magazines, as part of a $500 million plan that includes 23 executive orders he would take without congressional action. This plan would also require universal background checks for all firearms.

    It is way past time for our representatives to call a halt to Obama’s excesses!

    If he initiates executive orders to bypass Congress after taking an oath to protect and defend the Constitution he should be IMMEDIATELY IMPEACHED as such acts are treasonous and unconstitutional and in opposition to what our founding fathers and the delegates to the Constitutional Ratification Conventions desired and demanded.

    The Founding Fathers were eloquent and to the point with their statements:

    Tench Coxe, of Pennsylvania stated – “Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American . . . . The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.” — The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788

    This statement indicates that the founders expected that every American could be expected to arm themselves EQUAL IN EVERY WAY to soldiers whether foreign or domestic – “Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American”. That cannot be read any other way!

    “That the People have a right to keep and bear Arms; that a well regulated Militia, composed of the Body of the People, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe Defence of a free state.” — Within Mason`s declaration of “the essential and unalienable Rights of the People,” — later adopted by the Virginia ratification convention, 1788

    Zacharia Johnson of Virginia Ratification Convention – “[T]he people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full possession of them.” –Zacharia Johnson, speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention, 1788

    Samuel Adams, of Massachusetts – “The said Constitution [shall] be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms.” — Massachusetts` U.S. Constitution ratification convention, 1788

    George Mason of Virginia Ratification Convention – “If, at any time, our rulers should have unjust and iniquitous designs against our liberties, and should wish to establish a standing army, the first attempt would be to render the service and use of militia odious to the people themselves–subjecting them to unnecessary severity of discipline in time of peace, confining them under martial law, and disgusting them so much as to make them cry out, “Give us a standing army!” I would wish to have some check to exclude this danger; as, that the militia should never be subject to martial law but in time of war. I consider and fear the natural propensity of rulers to oppress the people. I wish only to prevent them from doing evil. By these amendments I would give necessary powers, but no unnecessary power. If the clause stands as it is now, it will take from the state legislatures what divine Providence has given to every individual–the means of self-defence.” — Virginia`s U.S. Constitution ratification convention, 1788

    Note that George Mason clearly stated SELF-DEFENSE as a reason for demanding what became the Second Amendment and this, along with the other Amendments contained within the Bill of Rights was demanded as a condition of ratification. The ONLY method by which the Second Amendment can be changed is by a Constitutional Amendment, NOT by any infringing act of Congress or so called “Executive Order”. George Mason further clarified the matter of the Second Amendment with these words – “An instance within the memory of some of this house will show us how our militia may be destroyed. Forty years ago, when the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised by an artful man, who was governor of Pennsylvania, to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia..”. . . I ask, who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers.” — Virginia`s U.S. Constitution ratification convention, 1788

    Thomas Jefferson, of Virginia – “No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” — Proposed Virginia Constitution, 1776

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Jefferson`s “Commonplace Book,” 1774-1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 176

    Little do those poor kids realize they are puppets in a propaganda play. I am betting 50-70% of the people who watched this (in person or broadcast) are in agreement with the proposal.

    This proposal is way outside the limited power of the federal government. To enforce it will require the construction of an American version of the Stasi (East German Secret Police). I can’t find an authoritative source citing Reagan’s support as suggested in this video propaganda piece. Anyone know when and where such an endorsement occurred? I did spot this …

    http://civilliberty.about.com/od/guncontrol/a/Gun-Rights-Ronald-Reagan.htm

    In the article, the author incorrectly states that G.H.W. Bush was Reagan’s predecessor – so I naturally have a few questions.

    In that Obama has been elected TWICE – lies the irrefutable proof that humans are just monkeys wearing shoes.

    Letter from kids… “pretty smart young people…” Well, at least smarter than this administration anyway. It is all relative. So, I guess he will now make decisions based on letters written by children. What an idiot.

    • The Truth

      I seriously doubt that chilwrote the letters; obama is a liar! Meanwhile the millions he kills through abortion support have no say.

  • lldav67

    Ways to keep guns out of the hands of people who intend to do “evil?” How about not letting Eric Holder run any more “Fast & Furious” ops? Where was the outcry in the MSM when our border agents were killed with weapons obtained from that fiasco?

    The young man speaking on: “How to Stop Mass Shootings is “Spot-On!” Also, consider why President Obama or V.P. Biden or any other “Chronic-Liberals” didn’t propose designating every “Public School & University a “National Guardsman Post?” Let’s-face-it-folks…this proposition would work, and these arch-liberals are not seeking solutions that work! If problems are solved — we won’t need them anymore. That’s the “Self-Evident Truth” of all Progressive-Liberal Policies — Nothing, Nothing, is ever solved! The longer they serve, the more convoluted things become; note, I didn’t blame “Democrats or Republicans……each Party is loaded with these leftist-thinkers.

    …The latest example of swallowing a myth whole, are the 23 “executive orders” that the media and many on the WWW have stated that aka-zero signed on January 16, 2013 (when surrounded by children). Problem with that myth is that aka-zero signed no executive orders among those 23 on January 16, 2013, nor did he sing any executive orders whatsoever on that day…

    News for 23 executive orders that weren’t

    The 23 executive orders that weren’t

    Obama issued no “orders.” He signed memos, authorized reports and began “A DIALOGUE ON GUNS…” There’s a difference.
    …………………………………………………………………
    There were no executive orders issued yesterday, just executive actions:

  • The Truth

    Obama is simply looking for more ways to destroy our economy and 500 illion helps him. Congress time to act!!

  • Mary

    all of these illegal laws passed by nobama will become obsolete and probably worth as much as used toilet paper…..just subpoena his applications as a FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT AT COLUMBIA.

  • Concerned American

    I ask one simple question. Does it matter what weapon you use to kill? Assault weapons kill. That is a no brainer, but so does a hand gun with say 5 or 7 or 10 clips. Is it the position of this administration that it is O.K. to kill with a gun holding fewer rounds. Did anyone in the kingdom stop and think that a sick mind is well enough to carry more than one gun that would totally house the same number of rounds as a larger “banned” gun? What degree of ineptitude this administration should reach before the gullible Americans who are infatuated with this president sound off and simply say, ENOUGH OF THE NONSENSE! Mr. Obama states that the so called ban would create a comfort level for the parents who leave their children at school every day. How stupid of a statement is that? I suppose the next day of the legislation is passed( if at all) no mentally deranged person would be able to pick up a semi-automatic with less than 10 rounds and shoot everyone in sight in any school if he wishes to do so!!!!! fI wonder if anyone in the W.H. had the courage to ask the king that question or were they all good obedient yes men who did not want to risk the wrath of the mighty dictator.

    Congress has become an embarrassment to America and a joke.

    If guns and big magazines of ammo are bad, why are non-military federal agencies buying up so much deadly ammo and body armor?
    March – September 2012: DHS contracted for 1.4 BILLION bullets for “training”. In March 2012 they contracted for 450 MILLION rounds of .40 cal hollow point bullets which expand upon entry and cause max organ damage. Around September they further ordered 750 MILLION rounds of assorted ammo, including wall penetrating bullets.

    The Social Security Administration purchased 174,000 rounds of .357 Sig 125 grain bonded jacketed hollow point pistol ammunition for 295 special agents and supervisory special agents working in 66 offices across the United States . The SSA’s Office of the Inspector General addressed the solicitation in a blog post on the agency’s website with the title, “Beyond the Numbers“: “These investigators have full law enforcement authority, including executing search warrants and making arrests,” “Our special agents need to be armed and trained appropriately. They not only investigate allegations of Social Security fraud, but they also are called to respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees, and customers.” [But we can’t use armed guards to protect children in schools.]

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, ordered 46,000 rounds of ammo for 63 enforcement personnel to protect fishing laws.

    Does the Social Security Administration or the National Marine Fisheries Service need guns, let alone ammunition? Has anyone EVER heard of them needing to use deadly force?
