The leftists, which is most of the Democrat party today, don’t even pretend they believe in the constitution, especially the separation of powers. They have shifted from abstract suggestions and follow up accusations of right-wing conspiracy theorists to the concrete and brazen calls for gun confiscation.
They will go for it but will we be the people we were under General Gage?
Martin O’Malley is calling for gun confiscation by executive order.
I agree this is a “moral outrage & nat’l disgrace.” If Congress doesn’t have courage to act, let’s use EOs. -O’M https://t.co/eIct6AlAKw— Martin O’Malley (@MartinOMalley) December 5, 2015
The NY Times is also calling for gun confiscation and put it on their front page yesterday. That was a trial balloon before Obama’s speech to the nation from the Oval Office this evening.
The WaPo suggests the NYT has gone too far this time, asserting that the front page call for a gun ban, followed by praise for confiscation, hurts the gun control movement by confirming every gun owner’s worst fear–namely, that all the talk about gun safety and reducing gun violence is just a sham, and the real agenda of the gun control movement is total confiscation.
WaPo has themselves put out editorials calling for gun confiscation, just not on the front page. They merely don’t want the NY Times to go too fast so the American people they view as nitwits don’t catch on.
Tonight Barack Obama is going to address the nation about safety and to assure the nation he has a plan to fight ISIS even though he doesn’t.
He’s likely going to ignore the terrorism and yell at law-abiding Americans who are mocked for offering prayers for victims while leftists offer gun confiscation.
The gun issue is a great way for President Obama to distract Americans from his incompetent performance in dealing with ISIS thus far.
It is very possible he will address guns tonight. A neighbor of the San Bernardino terrorists might have sold two guns to the killers and he might use this to put strictures on private sales by executive order though it would not have mattered. The killers had a right to own guns legally. Will he mention the climate change agreement reached yesterday which puts the US on the path of global governance?
It’s hard to believe he’s capable of giving a rational, cogent speech without throwing in frustrating non sequiturs and more rules to control law-abiding citizens.
The visa process failed miserably on the Terror Wife but the White House won’t mention that.
If they were willing to slaughter a room full of Christmas celebrants, they’d probably be willing to break gun laws though of course in their case, they didn’t have to.
There is no doubt gun confiscation is the end goal of the left and they are brazenly admitting it.
NY Governor Cuomo has said gun confiscation might be one way to go.
Connecticut has banned certain rifles and shotguns and they made thousands of gun owners felons overnight. Many did not turn in their guns. Gun confiscation is currently up in the air.
The International Chiefs of Police are now in bed with Obama and the Democrats who are leftists.
Sheriff David Clarke lamented it at the time because they are pushing gun control exclusively, particularly universal background checks. The organization partnered with the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence (NLEPPGV) in this endeavor.
Sheriff Clarke said they know that gun control has nothing to do with the crime and violence we see on the streets and they are not following through on their obligation to protect the public by disarming them.
He said: I was extremely disappointed when I heard that my fellow law enforcement executive colleagues had gotten into bed with Obama and his gun confiscation mission. That’s really what it’s about. It’s not about reducing violence, it’s not about reducing mass murder or suicides. The real intent of Obama and these gun groups is gun confiscation and they know they are going to have to do it step by step.”
He added that Obama can’t get it done in the next year, but under a Hillary, who knows.
President Obama has cited the country’s gun laws as a model for the United States, calling Australia a nation “like ours.” On the campaign trail, Hillary Clinton has said the Australian approach is “worth considering.”
Even foreigners are demanding we give up our guns, from the UN to the Australian activist who said two days ago that, “It’s time to call out the USA!”
No, it’s time to call out the leftists.
The leftists like to talk about “weapons of war” and “military-style weapons” but they are talking about regular rifles and shotguns in many cases. They’ve tried and even the ATF had to stop them on attempting to ban one ordinary Remington rifle.
The NRA exposed an internal DOJ memo calling for gun confiscation and they weren’t only talking rifles that look scary. They want handguns and all guns.
The disarming of the Athenian population by the Thirty Tyrants, in 404 B.C., ended in a violent revolt, and the restoration of democracy in 403 B.C. Will that happen here?
Gun confiscation already took place in Boston – under General Gage. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition after a meeting between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.
More than 200 were injured and 72 were killed during the confiscation and Gage blamed the extremists. At first he succeeded. Then he met with resistance in Lexington and eight civilians died, but the people blamed Gage and the government, not the right-wing extremists for the assault. An armed mob forced his retreat.
Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who were identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remained at large. This is is how the American Revolution began, April 20, 1775.
Someone needs to remind the leftist government in charge and Hillary Clinton about how we won our freedom. It’s how many of us plan to keep it.
Americans today might say oh, please take legal guns away so terrorists and criminals can’t get them.
You have time to vote on Brad Thor’s poll on Twitter. The question is, will you comply if the government tries to confiscate your guns? So far, 91% say NO.
Poll: If Barack Obama enacts a gun confiscation order, will you comply?
