Arrogant executive action usurping congressional powers latest in series ranging from climate change to illegal immigration
This time instead of cozying up to communist dictators in Cuba and colluding to expand nuclear capabilities to Islamic madmen in Iran, he’s playing hardball with the U.S. Constitution. In attempting to curtail our Second Amendment freedoms, the lame duck president fully exposes what many Americans have long regarded as his contempt of our liberty.
Obama’s overreaches have resulted in a record number of firearms-related background checks — well over 23-million — last year. Records indicate that more guns were sold in 2015 than in any previous year in American history. In December alone, the FBI conducted 3,314,594 background checks, an increase of more than half a million checks over the previous single-month record set in December 2012.
Simply put, gun and ammo sales are surging because Americans have no confidence the government can protect them and their families and actually fear Obama’s repressive tactics.
Among Obama’s proposed firearm restrictions, curbs on gun purchases would extend to those accused of violence against current or former dating partners or those with temporary restraining orders. A gun-possession ban for Social Security beneficiaries who are believed incapable of handling their own finances is also included.
On Monday, Jan. 4, Barack Obama released this multi-pronged FACT SHEET: New Executive Actions to Reduce Gun Violence. Individual sales between two people will require the seller be a registered, licensed dealer, and submit to a background check any time they sell a gun from their private collection. Assessing mental health has become the purview of the government as doctors are asked to become informants.
Hypocrisy is rampant. As they propose to diminish our Second Amendment rights, Obama and his family and the Clinton’s are secure with armed secret service protection. Seeing Red AZ posted “Dem gun hypocrites,” in Dec. 2012, detailing the congressional liberals and double talking, left-wing celebrities who have concealed carry permits and own firearms — which they support restricting us from accessing.
The Second Amendment is about much more than simply carrying concealed, hunting, or sport shooting. Our right to keep and bear arms is a bulwark against tyranny.
