Editor: You’ll know a Constitutional STATESMAN when you here them say, and act consistently based on the fact that: “Only Congress Has Constitutional Authority to write ‘the law of the land’. Only the Constitution and the laws made in PURSUANCE to the Constitution have the force of law and ARE the law of the land.”
Every other politician is unworthy of holding office in a Constitutional Republic.
When Democrats push gun control, they often try to spin their policies as just basic “common sense gun control measures.”
Obama openly mocks those claiming that he wants to come out for their guns.
Obama has however praised Australia as a successful model for gun control – a country that controlled guns by confiscation through a mandatory buyback program. It’s not crazy to think Democrats are sympathetic towards total prohibition on firearms.
Here are five more reasons to think some level of confiscation is coming soon.
As listed from Breitbart:
A new Obama administration healthcare rule“allowing health care [sic] providers to report the names of mentally ill patients to an FBI firearms background check system.” Because the definition of “mentally ill” is arbitrary, FrontPage Mag predicts the moniker of “mentally ill” will begin to be applied to “any belief or behavior that the left would like to stamp out– fervent adherence to the Constitution, homeschooling, and climate change ‘denial,’ for example–enabling the government to categorize those gun owners as mentally ill and disarm them.” Executive expansion of the number of ATF and FBI personnel focused on guns. Obama’s January 5 executive gun controls included the addition of 200 new ATF agents, along with another 230 FBI personnel.The White House said the new ATF agents will “help enforce our gun laws” while the FBI personnel will help process background checks. The Washington Examiner pointed out that these 430 new federal positions–focused on guns–constitute a force “more than eight times the size of the team of commandos he is sending to the Middle East to take on ISIS.” Increased, unvarnished calls for all-out bans on semiautomatic weapons. The Washington Post’s Eugene Volokh explained, “These aren’t calls for restricting supposedly narrow categories of guns that are allegedly used predominantly by criminals. These are calls for banning the sorts of guns that tens of millions of law-abiding Americans have in their homes.” Volokh explains the progression–from seeking a ban on “Saturday Night Specials” in the 1970s to a ban on “assault weapons” in the 1990s and 2000s to seeking an all-out ban on the possession of semiautomatic weapons now. Confiscation is already underway in California.FrontPage reports that “California Attorney General and anti-gun extremist Kamala Harris recently announced that over the last two years her Department had ‘doubled the average number of guns seized annually.’”
It should also be noted that California goes about confiscation by using many of the tools Democrats are putting in place at the federal level–such as incrementally expanding the list of what it means to be prohibited from gun possession, then using those expansions to trigger the confiscatory policies that allow law enforcement to visit homes and round up firearms.
The “legal groundwork” for confiscation is already in place. This last point overlaps the previous one somewhat. But the California example serves as a blueprint for Democrats at the federal level, who have long been looking for ways to confiscate firearms.
In California, expanded background checks led to registration, which was complimented…
