Republicans, Democrats and the NRA secretly working on full gun control legislation?

AMMONLAND | MARCH 12, 2013

One of the 250 United States Founding Fathers, Thomas Paine, said “I love peace but if there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may live in peace” and “These are the days that try men’s souls”.

Please keep those words in the back of your mind as I give you the shocking report and facts surrounding the Obama/Cantor back room deal.

The Republican Establishment Sellout to Obama may be more imminent than we think – – unless you and I can get all our family and friends to act swiftly and decisively to STOP THE REPUBLICAN LED SELL OUT to Barack Hussein Obama.

That’s right!

And Republican Majority Leader is leading the charge to cut a deal with President Obama.

The following are just some of the threats to innocent school children and our God-given 2nd Amendment liberties that Republicans are about to shove down our throats:

1.The NRA is cutting backroom deals to centralize gun owner data collection into the Obama/Holder massive government data base.

A centralized system is less costly to fight and far more lucrative for the NRA to appear to be “fixing“.

Like all establishment political lobbies the key to their job security is assisting in making problems they end up being called upon to “fix“.

2. Republican Majority Leader Eric Cantor is leading the charge to give Obama and Holder what they want in exchange for appearing to be “fixing” the problem of innocent children being butchered in our public and private schools.

3. Newly appointed Republican Judiciary Chairman, Bob Goodlatte R-VA 6th District, is providing political cover for the sneaky back room gun control deals and gun grabbing sell outs that his political masters – – John Boehner and Eric Cantor – – are cutting with Obama and his corrupt Attorney General, Eric Holder.

Political insiders have confirmed to me,  that Goodlatte earned his brand new chairmanship by ignoring the constitutional demands and grievances of every Republican Unit Chairman in his own 6th district.

These demands and grievances were approved and unanimously voted on by the GOP 6th district, published in prominent newspapers and sent to other Republican Chairmen around the country.

Goodlatte’s response was to ignore his unit chairs and when pressed by the media to publicly insult them.

Goodlatte is also fulfilling his promise to be a spokesman for NRA “A” rated Virginia Republican Congressman Scott Rigell’s House version of anti-gun Vermont Senator Pat Leahy’s S. 443 – – The Forced Gun Owner Registration Act.

4. Virginia Congressman Scott Rigell, R-VA 2nd district, has snuggled up to the Obama campaign by making a generous donation to the Obama campaign.

With “Republicans” like Rigell can anyone say “Benedict Arnold“?

5. Virginia’s very own gun grabbing Governor – – Gun Ban Bob McDonnell – – has ignored Virginia gun owner pleas to stop the slaughter of innocent Virginia school children.

That’s right Gun Ban Bob refuses to do anything practical that will save the lives of teachers and students.

Why Gun Ban Bob would want to anger and alienate gun owners in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina when he wants to be president or vice-president in 2016 is a mystery – – unless he has a secret political desire to leave politics when his term as Governor expires.

Actually, given Gun Ban Bob’s decade long record of flip flopping back and forth on gun rights it may be that Mr. McDonnell is tired of his political duplicity.

That is my best guess having met Mr. McDonnell on several occasions because he is a VERY likeable family man.

Before I explain our hope of stopping these betrayals of trust by the cowardly Republicans let me give you the facts regarding the weak-sister of the gun rights movement – – the National Rifle Association.

Please click THE NRA LIKES TO MAKE MONEY by SELLING GUN CONTROL AND CALLING IT “PUBLIC SAFTEY”

If you have not read the link above, please do. It is the key to understanding what I am about to tell you.

Over the years I have warned gun owners in Virginia that crafty phrases like “expanded background checks” and “beefing up the database” were simply code words for a national gun registration scheme.

These empty and deceptive words have are the tools of the trade for the sons of gun-control.

These gun grabbing politicians, lobbyists and activists love to use deceptive language to manipulate voters and pull the wool over the eyes of their victims.

In fact, right now the newest threat that has emerged is being sold under the guise of the code word “gun trafficking.”

Seriously, doesn’t “gun trafficking” sound like something bad that you and I should join the gun grabbers in trying to stop?

Better yet, we could then appear “REASONABLE” – – whatever that is when little kids are being butchered like pigs in our schools.

You see, the word smiths for the anti-life and liberty movement know that gun control will never sell unless it is carefully and craftily packaged and then sold to the public.

I’m talking about anti-gun Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy’s S. 443, the so-called Stop Illegal Trafficking in Firearms Act of 2013.

You see, the gun grabbers know how to deceptively name their anti-life and liberty bills.

So please, never use the bill names chosen by the sons-of-gun-control.

In reality, S. 443 is a Forced Gun Owner Registration Scheme. S. 443 imposes harsh sentences – up to 15 years in prison – for minor offenses.

The U.S. Senate committee that voted on this gun registration scheme approved it by an 11-7 vote.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, voted in favor of the Democrat Chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy’s, S. 443.

Incredibly, this dangerous legislation imposes a 15-year prison sentence on anyone who purchases a firearm with the intent of giving or selling it to a “prohibited person.”

And just who is considered a “prohibited person?”

Unfortunately, more and more individuals are being labeled a “prohibited person” for non-violent reasons.

I myself almost became a “prohibited” person in 1990 for leading a peaceful non-violent prayer vigil.

It took me almost 4 years and lots of pro-bono attorney hours to defeat it at the Vermont Supreme Court.

McHugh v. Vermont belongs in the constitutions museum of 1st Amendment absurdities.

But that is beside the point because it simply illustrates how ruthless power hungry liberals can be.

Now you know why I am very sensitive to how rogue governments and would-be-political-dictators abuse and manipulate words and ideas to further their dangerous agenda of destroying liberty.

But this isn’t about my experience.

My experience is simply a modern day illustration that history repeats itself.

The fact is that it was Adolf Hitler who motivated good-willed German’s to hate our Jewish friends by referring to them as “international serpents”.

Hitler was a master deceiver. He actually begged German people to protect their beautiful young German school girls from young Jewish males.

Really?

Did German school girls need protecting like American school children need protecting?

Yes, of course they did – – but not from young Jewish boys but from Hitler and those whom he misled.

Hitler went on to say that “With Satanic joy in his face, the black-haired Jewish youth lurks in wait for the unsuspecting girl whom he defiles with his blood, thus stealing her from her people.” -Adolf Hitler (Mein Kampf)

Now you know why you and I must stand up and be counted in this fight to protect innocent little American boys and girls in our day and our time.

Please don’t let history repeat itself.

And above all let’s fight the lies of the gun grabbing socialists with words of truth because it is only truth that can set us truly free.

We must not be duped into supporting or standing idle while the opponents of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness eat out the foundations of our system of government like maggots and termites.

AM I EXAGGERTING?

Decide for yourself.

Right now, 150,000 of our nation’s hero veterans are considered “prohibited” just because they acknowledged PTSD – – Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – – on returning from war.

And since Barack Hussein Obama just issued an Executive Order calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to “review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun,” the definition of “prohibited” could change any day depending on the Attorney General’s whims.

Remember, these are the “saviors of mankind” that refuse to promise that drone strikes will never be used on American soil to assassinate Americans who have not yet been convicted in a court of law or even charged with a capital offense.

But it gets worse, because under the NRA drafted Forced Gun Owner Registration Act, it doesn’t matter if you knew whether someone is a “prohibited person” or not – you’re going to prison either way – – if it was your intent to sell a firearm to a prohibited person.

And who defines and decides the intent of man’s mind?

In reality, this effort at mind reading could also be called the NRA drafted Obama/Cantor Gun Owner Thought Control Act of 2013.

The truth is, if the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act passes, the only way to comply will be through a national gun registration scheme – – much like the German law requiring Jews to wear the Star of David on their sleeves for identification and registration purposes.

And you and I both know what registration of Jews produced.

And you and I both know gun owner registration is the first step toward . . .

. . . TOTAL GUN CONFISCATION!

Gun confiscation was also another one of Hitler’s first laws passed – – all in the name of public safety of course.

Is all this sounding eerily familiar? The gun grabbers understand what is happening so must we.

That is why the real purpose of the Obama/Holder scheme and their well-meaning but badly deceived and misled allies at the NRA is to effectively force gun owners to accept a national gun registry in order to protect themselves from Barack Obama’s ATF goon sting operations.

So the NRA gets to make money while unwittingly supporting a law meant to save us but that will eventually enslave us.

Worse yet, the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act is supported by members of both political parties – many who claim to be “pro-gun.”

Maine Republican Senator Susan Collins and Illinois Republican Senator Mark Kirk joined Leahy as cosponsors of this anti-gun scheme in the Senate.

THAT’s RIGHT! CO-SPONSORS OF FORCED GUN REGISTRATION

Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley – the top Republican on the Democrat-controlled Judicial Committee – just voted for the bill in Committee.

And over in the U.S. House, Virginia Congressman Scott Rigell – given an “A” rating from the NRA – is sponsoring a House version of this dangerous scheme.

Supposed “pro-gun Republicans” are dropping like flies.

In fact, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham just introduced a bill – along with Republican Senator Jeff Flake – to massively expand the so-called “background check” system to include mental health records.

Mental health” is a code word used to dupe us into handing bureaucrats the power to STRIP Americans of their God-given rights without a trial or conviction by a jury of peers.

Multiple news sources report that this anti-gun legislation is supported by the NRA.

The institutional gun lobby is more concerned with making friends with the press and making money from their sell outs than defending gun rights.

The sad truth is, the sons-of-gun-control guru’s and their gun grabbing political buddies in the House and Senate could care less about so-called “gun trafficking.

If they did, they’d be outraged at Eric Holder’s “Fast and Furious” scandal where the U.S. government funneled illegal weapons to Mexican drug cartels.

Instead, Attorney General Eric Holder was granted the authority to determine who should and shouldn’t be “prohibited” from owning a firearm.

Apparently, anti-gun Republicans like Chuck Grassley, Susan Collins and Mark Kirk would rather empower Barack Obama’s ATF goons to harass YOU rather than bring Eric Holder to justice for his crimes.

That’s why I’m counting on you to help defeat this back-door attempt to impose a national gun registration scheme on America’s most law-abiding citizens.

While your Virginia Gun Owners Coalition and other gun groups are sounding the alarm over the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act, the NRA has been quietly writing the bill and trying to minimize press coverage.

The inside-the-beltway gun lobby is more afraid of losing money to VGOC and the National Association for Gun Rights (www.nagr.org) – the loyal opposition – – than they are of losing more gun rights.

That’s why you and I must stop these dangerous schemes that are coming at us faster than I can write.

But the solution is simple and there is real hope.

You and I must let the politicians know that their political careers and futures are on the line.

VGOC members did it in 2004 when we joined several other state level gun lobbies to kill the NRA drafted bill renewing the Hated Clinton Gun Ban.

Those of you who have been members since 2004 will remember that VGOC members turned Senator George Allen around after he publicly promised to renew the Clinton Gun Ban for the NRA.

The NRA cut a back room deal with anti-gun Democrats to renew the Clinton Gun Ban in exchange for a Gun Manufactures’ Liability Bill.

VGOC worked with other gun groups across America to expose the NRA sell out.

I will never forget when the morning of the vote, Mike Thomas, Allen’s chief of staff, called and asked me “Mr. McHugh would you be willing to tell your members that the Senator has changed his mind based on new information and will vote against the renewal of the hated Clinton Gun Ban”.

Allen did!

We won then and we can do it again.

Let that be our motto.

“We won then and we can do it again”.

LET’s ROLL!

Here is what VGOC staff and volunteers will do:

  1. We will send you action items as often as possible so that you can act quickly and swiftly to confront the politicians and inject the fear of gun owner wrath into their pathetic political career plans.
  2. I will continue to publicly and personally confront and expose the politicians who are willing to stand on the dead bodies of murdered school children to further their political careers as often as possible.

Here’s what you can do to help:

*** Call your U.S. Senators and Congressmen in the House of Representatives and INSIST they oppose S. 443 the Forced Gun Owner Registration Act of 2013.

If they play dumb just give them the bill number. Let them know you will not be fooled by their political games and deceptive code words.

Below are the key politicians who need to receive a phone call from you once a day until they hold a press conference promising to vote against ANY and ALL gun control bills.

  • Sen. Tim Kaine: (202) 224- 4024
  • Sen. Mark Warner: (202)224-2023
  • Rep. Bob Goodlatte (202)225 5431
  • Rep. Eric Cantor (202) 225 2815
  • Rep. Scott Rigell (202) 225 4215

Time is of the essence because this dangerous bill could be on the floor of the Senate starting any day.

So there’s not a moment to waste if we want to STOP this deceptive and insidious assault on life and liberty.

By killing Scott Rigell’s House version of S. 443 or just slowing it down, we can buy time to mobilize the fight in the Senate.

So please ACT TODAY to STOP these anti-life and liberty schemes.

And if you can, please chip in $10, $20 – or even $50 – to help alert thousands more Virginians to this imminent threat.

I won’t quit!

You can take that to the bank.

Please let me know that you aren’t quitting by making phone calls and asking all your family and friends to sign up for free email alerts at VGOC, Virginia’s Only State Level No-More-Excuses Gun Lobby – – Representing Gun Owners to Politicians NOT Politicians to Gun Owners. (www.vgoc.org)

For Liberty,

PS The Republicans just helped the Democrats in a U.S. Senate committee approve S. 443, the Forced Gun Owners Registration Act, by an 11-7 vote. Republicans helped pass this measure, whose chief sponsor was the panel’s chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt.

S. 443 bill is designed to force gun owners to accept a national gun registry since that will end up being the ONLY WAY many gun owners will think they can protect themselves from Barack Obama’s ATF goons’ and their sting operations.

Ted Nugent mops the floor of a gun store with Piers Morgan

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | FEBRUARY 6, 2013

Ted Nugent attempted to have a friendly discussion about the Second Amendment and gun control with CNN’s Piers Morgan, but after Morgan failed to use common sense during the interview, Nugent fired away some of the most logical arguments which Morgan had no answers for. In fact, the CNN talking head limited himself to bring up cooked poll numbers and comparing Americans’ right to keep and bear arms with gun control or lack of it in countries where there isn’t a Second Amendment.

Ted Nugent called Piers Morgan obsessed with firearms and told him his fight wasn’t about protecting people from violent crimes, but about his intolerance for smart, responsible people who own guns to defend themselves, as warranted on the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Morgan visited and broadcasted part of his show from a gun store in Houston, Texas where a crowd of Second Amendment supporters waited for him to denounce his lies and disinformation campaign.

See the complete interview in the clip below.

Second Amendment vindicated: Armed Guard Stops School Shooter in Atlanta

AP | FEBRUARY 1, 2013

A student opened fire at his middle school Thursday afternoon, wounding a 14-year-old in the neck before an armed officer working at the school was able to get the gun away, police said.

Multiple shots were fired in the courtyard of Price Middle School just south of downtown around 1:50 p.m. and the one boy was hit, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner said. In the aftermath, a teacher received minor cuts, he said.

The wounded boy was taken “alert, conscious and breathing” to Grady Memorial Hospital, said police spokesman Carlos Campos. He was expected to be released Thursday night.

Police swarmed the school of about 400 students after reports of the shooting while a crowd of anxious parents gathered in the streets, awaiting word on their children. Students were kept at the locked-down school for more than two hours before being dismissed.

Investigators believe the shooting was not random and that something occurred between the two students that may have led to it.

Schools Superintendent Erroll Davis said the school does have metal detectors.

“The obvious question is how did this get past a metal detector?” Davis asked about the gun. “That’s something we do not know yet.”

The armed resource officer who took the gun away was off-duty and at the school, but police didn’t release details on him or whether he is regularly at Price. Since 20 children and six adults were shot to death at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut in December, calls for armed officers in every school have resonated across the country.

Obama uses shock doctrine to impose gun control

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | JANUARY 17, 2013

Supported by the shock of the massacre at Newtown School, Barack Obama on Wednesday launched the most ambitious offensive against firearms in decades and has promised to surrender all his energy to what will be one of the most expensive projects of his second term.

The president sent Congress a proposal to prohibit the civilian possession of military grade weapons and signed 23 decrees to act without congressional permission in what he said would be an improvement of  arms control measures.

“If only one life we ​​can save, we have an obligation to try. We have an obligation to act now, ” Obama said in the press conference organized to present his unconstitutional initiatives.

The President is aware that it has opened a conflict with one of the most powerful entities in the country, the National Rifle Association (NRA) as well as with a strong portion of the citizenry by trying to to undermine one of the pillars on which rests the birth of the United States, the right to own guns.

It is, therefore, a mission that will find many obstacles along the way. The NRA is not the only organization that works to safeguard the individual liberties, although it is the strongest one when combating anti-Second Amendment sentiment. It is fair to say that the NRA will be rolling in money and emotions in the debate that has already been going on for weeks.

As pointed out before, Obama appeared shielded by families whose children study at the Newtown School, children who were asked to write to the president to ask him for action against gun violence. Recent polls, whether they are trustworthy or not, reflect the desire by at least half of the American public to have something done about gun murders.

The fear created by the idea that anyone who owns a gun could at any point take the lives of innocent people has spread rooted deep in the minds of a population that despite having been liberated by guns, now believes that a disarmed society is a safer society. It is precisely to those people the ones who Obama addressed yesterday, compelling them to demand action against the Second Amendment to carry out his effort to have less guns on the street.

The president’s initiative is ambitious regarding U.S. history and tradition in the sense it will try to limit and eventually eliminate the right to keep and bear arms, even though disarming the population, as history shows, only results in a stratospheric growth in violence.

Obama has asked Congress to ban assault weapons (automatic and semiautomatic rifles used by soldiers on the battlefield), limit magazine rounds to 10 bullets and to set up a more extensive background check system in order to better identity all gun buyers, without exception.

Currently, about half of the weapons purchased in the U.S. are sold at fairs and conventions in which, by law, citizens can buy guns and ammunition. This is where the Obama proposal comes into action. According to statements issued by various Obama administration officials, the idea is to register every gun owner with as much detail as possible so that the government will be in a better position to deny access to firearms, should it determine a person is unfit to own them.

If Congress approves Obama’s proposal or the President himself signs it through an unconstitutional Executive Order, criminals will be on the loose, fully armed and counting on the fact that the average Joe, including those who support Obama’s plan will not be able to defend themselves. This is the reason why pro-Second Amendment folks have flooded gun fairs all over the country so they can get their hands on guns and ammo before the Federal Government effectively puts a ban on purchases or greatly limits who can buy them.

At the moment, Obama not only faces opposition from the U.S. Constitution, but from Congressmen and a significant part of the population who are not ready to surrender their Second Amendment just yet. Steve Stockman, a Republican Representative for the state of Texas, already warned that banning firearms could be grounds for dismissal of the president (impeachment), in that it is a violation of the Second Amendment.

But the U.S. President has been clear about his intention to impose new restrictions by decree his 23 new measures.  The most important section is the introduction of a background check for mental illness, which the Federal Government will manage through rules and regulations built into Obamacare. According to those rules, doctors will work as snitches for the government and medical care will be recommended for those who are found to be mentally unstable for seeking to own firearms that are banned.

Under Obamacare, doctors are expected to ask patients about owning guns, prompt people to report any kind of threat of violence to law enforcement, requires the states to report data under Health Insurance Portability Act, and so on. Eventually, the Federal Government will be able to deny access to guns, or take firearms away from people who are determined to be a danger to society due to their supposed potential to become a mass killer.

Obama kidnaps society to justify gun-grabbing Executive Orders

The U.S. President handed the public 23 measures he will impose on all Americans to “keep them safe”.

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | JANUARY 16, 2013

U.S. President Barack Obama, announced 23 measures to be adopted by decree to tighten control of access to firearms, including the marketing of assault rifles.

Among those “executive orders”, which according to Obama do not need to go through Congress, are  requiring criminal background checks for all sales and increase mental health coverage.

These measures were announced by U.S. President in response to the slaughter perpetrated in December in Newtown, where a young man killed 20 children and six adults in a school, and his mother, before killing himself.

In addition, Obama will restrict access to high capacity magazines and eliminate piercing bullets, and urge states to share their databases on criminal records with the Federal Government.

The plan, Obama says, will boost security in schools and colleges, will provide funds to hire a thousand educational and psychological counselors and help update emergency programs.

The measures are part of the plan created by a team led by U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who met with members of civil society, security officials and members of the education sector.

Obama’s decrees include increased budgetary resources to facilitate access to mental health of students and young people through training of 5,000 medical professionals.

The measures announced are divided into four categories: preventing weapons from reaching the wrong hands, ban the sale of assault weapons, increase school safety and improve mental health services.

The priority is supposedly to protect children

Barack Obama said protecting children from violence should be the primary “responsibility” of society, when he announced the 23 measures to tighten gun control.

“Although reducing gun violence is a difficult challenge, protecting our children from such violence should not be an issue that divides us,” Obama said at the White House, where he appeared next to Vice President, Joe Biden.

During the event Obama frequently referred to several children who supposedly wrote letters to him during the last month to show their concern about gun violence following the tragedy of Sandy Hook in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and 6 adults were shot by Adam Lanza.

Obama read excerpts from a letter written by one of these children who asked him to “work hard” to stop the violence and casualties caused by firearms.

“I will do everything in my power to do so. But the only way we can change is if the American people and  require it,” said the president.

He also stressed that to achieve change “real and lasting” Congress “must act” and pass laws that complement today’s proposals which he will approve by Executive Order.

“Together with our freedom to live our lives comes the obligation to allow others to do the same,” said Obama, who reiterated his support for the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which enshrines the right to bear arms responsibly. ”
