Obama announces 2 more executive orders to go after guns
Freedom Outpost – Tim Brown – 8/29/2013
While the Obama administration calls these "common-sense" proposals, they are actually unconstitutional proposals as we have cited before. First, the administration wants to close a loophole
Now comes the reasoning.
"However, felons, domestic abusers, and others prohibited from having guns can easily evade the required background check and gain access to machine guns or other particularly dangerous weapons by registering the weapon to a trust or corporation. At present, when the weapon is registered to a trust or corporation, no background check is run. ATF reports that last year alone, it received more than 39,000 requests for transfers of these restricted firearms to trusts or corporations."
Now wait a minute! Since when have we heard of criminals turning up with weapons that have been registered to trusts and corporations?
Furthermore, can we honestly trust the ATF on anything? These were the guys who knowingly participated in walking guns illegally over our southern border into the hands of known criminal cartels! The agency is the one not performing the job of prosecuting those breaking the illegal laws in the first place! The National Rifle Association, ripped the administration, saying "The Obama administration has once again completely missed the mark when it comes to stopping violent crime."
"Requiring background checks for corporations and trusts does not keep firearms out of the hands of criminals. Prohibiting the re-importation of firearms into the U.S. that were manufactured 50 or more years ago does not keep firearms out of the hands of criminals. This administration should get serious about prosecuting violent criminals who misuse guns and stop focusing its efforts on law-abiding gun owners," the NRA said in a statement.
If you aren't awake yet, you should be. This is all about removing our ability to defend against tyranny. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Military-grade weapons should be in the hands of the citizens just as much as in the hand of the military! That is the purpose of the Second Amendment. It was to ensure that we had equal weapons in order to secure a free state from tyranny, such as the current regime residing in Washington.
