"The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." -Thomas Jefferson
In his speech Wednesday Obama proposed 23 executive orders concerning gun control measures. Reaction has focused mostly on a proposed ban on so-called "assault weapons" & high-capacity magazines. Other proposals include enhancing the Federal government's access to background checks - personal information on private citizens that is currently not available to the Federal government, short of a search warrant or an indictment.
These measures are extreme enough as it is, but more sinister are measures written into ObamaCare; i.e. the safety of the public requires that doctors question patients about gun ownership. Information being sought includes what kind of weapons are present in the home, how are the stored and/or secured, and do any members of the household suffer a mental condition?
A mental condition can be anything from schizophrenia, Alzheimer's, to alcohol abuse (ever had a DUI?), anger management (ever had a domestic abuse call from the cops?) to PTSD manifested by as mild a thing as sleep disorder (who DOESN'T have THAT).
If it is determined that a member of the household suffers a mental condition, the new bureaucracy of shared patient information will inform the Center for Disease Control of this move. A letter will then be sent to your attention from the CDC, the ATF or the DOJ demanding your home immediately be cleared of the weapons known to exist there thanks to an ObamaCare initiated, doctor-patient interview in which you participated!
Rather than decide which guns we’ll not be permitted to own, the government will simply not allow us to own ANY!
If your healthcare provider asks anything regarding firearms in your home, simply reply, "I don't wish to discuss this subject." Or you can outright lie, if you like. You're not under oath or indictment; you are not required to say anything.
Regarding so-called "assault weapons" (I say so-called because none of the arms Liberals refer to qualify according to the pure military definition) and high capacity magazines; Obama's proposals will not affect me - I pack a .45 (7-round magazine) and my weapon of choice for home defense - or the car - is 12-guage pump shotgun; legal in all 50 states incredibly enough and more lethal than a semi-automatic rifle, at close range.
As usual Obama doesn't know what he's talking about. This thing is going to backfire in his face so bad. The Dems know that gun bans are a non-starter; they're using this thing to paint Republicans as intransigent for the upcoming spending/budget battles.
In other words if banning guns was so important why didn't the Democrats do it when they controlled Congress? The answer is because they know it would have cost them the election, just like the Clinton assault rifle ban cost them the House in '94.
Liberals focus on what they call "assault rifles" - civilianized versions of military weapons which are simply semi-automatic rifles with high-capacity magazines - because they look evil. The challenge is that the 2d Amendment allows us to arm ourselves in self-defense - a fundamental human right - and the type of weapons addressed are specifically weapons suitable for a battlefield.
Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples' liberty's teeth." -George Washington
Consider the 1992 Rodney King race riots in L.A. The only shops that survived the savage onslaught were Korean-owned businesses. The reason why the Koreans survived is because they are very organized; every Korean community has a Korean Association. Almost every Korean businessman has served in the ROK military, and as any American who has pulled duty in the Republic of Korea will tell you, ROK soldiers are the toughest on Earth and THEY DO NOT F*CK AROUND.
I toured the riot-hit neighborhoods of East L.A. and downtown Hollywood not long after the riots and saw for myself the damage the inhabitants had brought upon themselves. What stood out was the Korean businesses. There were some broken windows and some incidental fire damage from adjacent structures, but it was remarkable to see these islands of civilization amongst the rubble and the burnt out storefronts.
Moral of the story: arm yourself with as many guns as you can get your hands on and keep them as close to yourself as possible. The right to self-defense is derived from Deity, it is natural law, codified in our Constitution, passed by Congress, ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, Secretary of State:
"A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."
