Registering Gun Owner and their Guns Like Sex Offenders is an Outrage that Must End!

Washington, DC—Creating lists of law-abiding Americans with firearms has no benefits whatsoever.  Guns are almost never left at crime scenes and when they are learning the legal owners identity is usually meaningless because the offender is either captured or killed.
There are two U.S. Supreme Court cases that make it clear that persons precluded by law from owning firearms cannot be forced to register their guns or face prosecution when they don’t.  Registration violates their rights against self-incrimination.
We all saw the recent fallout from the names and personal information being published by a Leftist newspaper trying to somehow shame gun owners.  That list also told every thug, rapist and killer where to find unarmed and helpless victims. 
Proponents of registration schemes claim that gun registration is harmless and no different than drivers and automobile licensing.  They’re dead wrong because driving or owning a car is not constitutionally protected activity.  The license to keep and bear arms is the Second Amendment!  I should add that charging citizens a fee  to exercise their right to keep and bear arms is no more lawful that the Poll Taxes of the Deep South.
Canada had a gun registry for decades that was incredibly expensive, wasteful and ineffective.  They finally saw the light and jettisoned it for good.  Remember Canada has no express right to own firearms like America does.
Gun rights are set aside for combatting government tyranny and for self-defense.  We should not be relegated only antique or ineffective arms for this purpose.  The U.S. Supreme Court called the suggestion that the Second Amendment only protected the kind of muskets that were available at the time of its promulgation frivolous in the recent Heller case.  The Heller case really covers the M-4/AR-15 and magazine capacity issues adequately. 
Registering gun owners like sex offenders and felons serves no purpose except to harass and infringe on the rights of your fellow Americans.  That is in itself unlawful.
We must also remember the millions of soldiers buried in veteran’s cemeteries that gave their lives so we could have the freedom and liberty that Barack Obama and his cronies are trying to take from Americans.  Millions of us are ready to take up arms to defend those rights like the Minutemen of our Revolutionary War once again. Please, let’s not force gun owners to take to the streets to protect their Constitutional rights again.  The fact is that we will if that becomes necessary because of any act of war against Americans by tyrannical government actions.
The very politicians and bureaucrats that are pushing this oppression will be the very first targets for armed resistance.

Never mind registering guns – an executive order to control the American people’s guns would be an outrage!!!!

Some of the most egregious acts in the history of the United States have been committed by American Presidents in the form of proclamations or executive orders.

President Obama has issued many executive orders restricting the freedoms of individuals to enjoy their rights as provided for in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Perhaps the most disturbing example of a president asserting executive powers beyond the scope of the Constitution was in the April 2010 drone attack and killing of an American citizen in Yemen. Anwar al-Awlaki was an al-Qaida operative targeted for death by the Obama Administration. There have been several FOIA requests for the secret Justice Department memo legally justifying the attack. According to an article in the Huffington Post by Nina Pickler, Hina Shamsi with the American Civil Liberties Union has stated, "Anyone willing to trust President Obama with the power to secretly declare an American citizen an enemy of the state and order his extrajudicial killing should ask whether they would be willing to trust the next president with that dangerous power."

President Obama’s Executive Order Number 13603 dated March 16, 2012 entitled National Defense Resources Preparedness specifies in times of perceived national threat or national emergency which executive branch department would seize control of specific national resources and services.

If the President acted on his Executive Order, this could result in massive seizures of personal property from the citizens of the United States, violating their constitutional rights.

As far as gun control - President Obama could - through executive order step up the enforcement of gun control laws already on the books. In addition, President Obama could implement new measures not expressly denied by either the Constitution or a law of Congress. However, just as Truman could not seize the steel mills in 1952, Obama could not simply American President Truman could not seize people's guns through executive order. And also could not conflict with any gun friendly legislation passed by the Congress over the last 10 years.

Senator Durbin
says he is an advocate for simple, commonsense solutions...

Bar those with a history of serious mental instability or violent crime from owning weapons; (Those that are in wars suffer from PTSS so it is ok for them to be in a war and use weapons but not have them when they are back at home in America)
Outlaw the sale of weapons that are strictly for military use and have no useful purpose in sport, hunting, or self defense; (To defend against tyranny the guns must be equal)

Ban magazine clips with more than ten rounds from civilian use; (It only takes one round to kill a person?)

Restrict the number of firearms a person can buy in a month (What good would this do?)
Require firearms within the reach of children to have protective locks. (Why should firearms be within the reach of children?)

So tell me Mr. and Ms. gun banner....would you feel better if the Newtown shooter had shown up with a double barrel shotgun and revolver?

Gun grabbers are full of hooey, they want to get all the guns and are just starting the same battle all over again, getting their foot in the door with the ultimate goal a total prohibition of firearms. If you're not a member of the NRA you should be.

Re: Torture Memos and A President's Constitutional Authority

A series of Office of Legal Counsel's memos over the decade before Jay Bybee’s 2002 Torture memo had concluded that the president’s constitutional authority created implicit exceptions to the disclosure limitations and the secrecy requirements of the existing grand jury rules. Bybee’s memo doubled down on this extension of executive power, however, offering an almost impossibly narrow reading of the law’s remaining oversight and accountability mechanisms.

Torture Memos can easily be directed at the American People. It is already happening!

In 2011 there were 323 folks killed by automatic rifles. The same year 496 died from blows from a claw hammer. 12,000 foks died from encounter with drunk drivers and that same year 195,000 folks died because of medical malpractice.
Soooo, you are 600 times more likely to die by using your Obamacare than by an automatic rifle. You feel ill yet???? We will see!
