Obama’s Plans for Gun Control: “Under the Radar”

Written by Gary North on December 29, 2011

President Obama knows what he is doing. He knows he cannot go public with his plans.

 “I just want you to know that we are working on [gun control]. We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar,” President Obama told Sarah Brady, the former president of the Brady Campaign, this past spring.

The program is moving forward.

Just this past week Obama signaled that he was going to just ignore two new parts of the 2012 Omnibus Spending bill. Although he signed the spending bill into law, he simultaneously issued a so-called “signing statement,” a note that presidents have started attaching to legislation stating how they interpret the law they are signing or whether they believe part of it is unconstitutional.

Obama’s statement claimed that Congress couldn’t put restrictions on how he wanted to spend to fund lobbying for gun control and the National Institute of Health studies of gun control.

George W. Bush used signing statements to thwart the Constitution. It is common practice today.

There is good news. The gun-owning public is well-organized.

Obama has had numerous false starts on gun control. Just in November, his administration moved to ban target practice on public lands, but the opposition was so swift and strong they immediately backtracked.

By now, we all know about Fast and Furious, the botched plan to sell guns to Mexican drug cartels.

With 90 congressmen signing a “no confidence” resolution in Attorney General Eric Holder’s handling of “Fast & Furious,” last week Holder lashed out against his critics. “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American,” Holder told the New York Times. Holder seems unwilling to recognize the genuine outrages the administration’s gun-control agenda has produced.

Still the administration has successfully manage to push through gun control regulations in many, less visible ways: — The Obama administration instituted a ban on importing “historic” semi-automatic rifles into the US. — In sharp contrast to the Bush administration, President Obama strongly supports the UN Arms Trade Treaty even though he knows that any such treaty are unlikely to obtain the two-thirds vote in the Senate needed for ratification. What the regulations will do is lead to severe restrictions on private gun ownership around the world.

The administration instituted new rules on selling “high-powered rifles,” defined as a caliber of greater than .22. — The administration nominated Andrew Traver, someone who supports gun bans, as the head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.

Obama has stuck by Traver despite his nomination being stalled in the Senate for a year and the fierce opposition it has generated.

The media paint Obama as a moderate on gun control. He isn’t.

Yet, despite all this evidence of an anti-gun agenda, recent articles by the Associated Press and other news media paint Obama as a moderate on guns and as somebody who wants to “protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens” and merely support so-called “gun safety” measures.

Of course, they are wrong. Unfortunately, Obama’s patient “under the radar” campaign seems to be working. He is fundamentally changing the courts and leaving them much more hostile to gun ownership. If Americans catch on, this could still be a major issue in the 2012.

      Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    • Look at the countless people in the middle east throwing rocks trying to overthrow brutal dictatorships. We must hang on to our rights and guns to guarantee we will not be like those people.

  2. In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. By 1987 that figure had risen to 61,911,000.

    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952 10,076,000 political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated in Kuomintang China, and by 1987 another 35,236,000 exterminations were carried out under the Communists.

    GUN CONTROL WORKS ask the experts: Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot

    Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Luke 22:36 – Jesus Christ

    Luke 10:18And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
    In ancient Hebrew the word for lightning is barack, the word for heaven or the
    heights is bama and to connect the words either an “a” or an “o” is used.

    2 Thessalonians 2:3 (King James Version)
    3Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there
    come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

    Political Correctness a term first seen in Mao’s Little Red Book, a communist engendered abomination that is instituting censorship little by little.

    “If the freedom of speech is taken away then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.”- George Washington

    Carl Marx, once wrote that, the goal of the Communists was to quote,. “enter into men’s minds and cast God down from his throne.”

    Matthew 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.

     

    In ancient Babylon their economy was based on usury.
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     Article 1 Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution clearly states that only the Congress can print and coin money! 

    The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was slipped thru congress during the Christmas break with the majority of it’s members absent. 

    The Federal Reserve is self serving and privately owned in violation to the Constitution, charging interest on illegally printed money. Money printed from nothing!
    In America On June 4, 1963, a virtually unknown Presidential decree, Executive Order 11110, was signed with the authority to basically strip the Federal Reserve Bank of its power to loan money to the United States Federal Government at interest. With the stroke of a pen, President Kennedy declared that the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank would soon be out of business. Five months later A UNITED STATES PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY was MURDERED BY COMMUNIST!
    “If you lend money to one of my people among you who is needy, do not be like a moneylender; charge him no interest. Exodus 22:25
    Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. Ezekiel 18:13
    Usury is unlawful; expressly prohibited by GOD!
     
     
    In ancient Babylon their priest sacrificed babies to their gods baal, and molech.  
    In America the communist under their socialist programs have sacrificed over 50 million American babies to their god satan!
    Leviticus 20:2-5
    2Again, thou shalt say to the children of Israel , Whosoever he be of the children of Israel , or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel , that giveth any of his seed unto Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
    3And I will set my face against that man, and will cut him off from among his people; because he hath given of his seed unto Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.
    4And if the people of the land do any ways hide their eyes from the man, when he giveth of his seed unto Molech, and kill him not:
    5Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
     
    Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:16Cut off the sower from Babylon, and him that handleth the SICKLE in the time of harvest: for fear of the oppressing sword they shall turn every one to his people, and they shall flee every one to his own land.
    Jeremiah 50:23How is the HAMMER OF THE WHOLE EARTH CUT ASUNDER AND BROKEN! how is Babylon become a desolation among the nations!
    BABYLON = the HAMMER and SICKLE!
     
     
    Jeremiah 50:14 “ Put yourselves in array against Babylon all around, All you who bend the bow; Shoot at her, spare no arrows, For she has sinned against the LORD.

    All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the LORD will I destroy them. Psalm 118:10

    There should be issues brought up on this point as well as many others about the way this criminal group in Washington has been conducting the nations business. They've embarrassed us world wide and continue to prance around like the world is their playground. All on the taxpayers dime. What a pathetic group of human waste these people have become.

  4. take the guns away and install one world government. Agenda 21 check it out. Also check out internet piracy act.

  5. I'll bet that Gun Control won't Apply to Blacks, Hispanisc, and Moslems!!! Obama and Holder's PEOPLE!!

    • I won't bet you on that one . The Ayatolla Obama wants our guns so he can have his own little Communist Empire right here in America . He and Iman Holder will round us all up and put us in Fema camps with the illegals and Black Panthers as guards . All American's should stand up to this guy and vote him out of office asap or impeach him and place him and his flunkies in chains !

  6. take away law abiding citizens guns like hitler & stalin & mao & fidel and all the other dictaters to come along and you can control the sheep and enslave them.

  7. You have to hand it to President Obama. He keeps trying to implement gun control even though he claims to be a moderate on that issue. The only problem is that Americans are well aware of their rights under the second amendment and any infringement on those rights will be met with vociferous opposition

    • Voiciferuos ain't cutting it any more. Gun control, no right to self defense, suspention of habeus corpus, fema camps; when will we decide we have had enough. It isn't just this ahole, our rights to self defense are being taken away by congress, by the courts,by the states by indevidual cities. It is time we sent a loud and clear message to Washington, one that will scare the crap out of all the lowlifes we continue to send there.
      What is needed is a massive march, large enough that we can march right up to capitol hill and demand to be heard.I only wish I had the wherewithall to make it happen, but if and when it does save me a spot at the front.

      • Every hear of "People's Declaration to Revoke and Abolish"? Search for it and hopefully help.

      • SECEDE! That is what our founding fathers did…that is what their descendents did in the South…secession completely cuts off the money by which these communist traitors are otherwise able to buy on our dime what they must have to enslave and destroy us. The only thing these people fear is the loss of power by loss of money.

  8. Bob Marshall says:

    Hillary is big on gun control. God help us if she becomes vice president and Obama is reelected.

    • OBUMMERHATER4SURE says:

      OMG Bob your beginning to see the light, I think I have finally found someone who took to heart what I've been posting for the last 6 months. Hitlary is going to be OBUMMERS V.P. in 2012 just you wait and see. When OBUMMER & Hitlary are elected in 2012 then she will be put incharge of the gun control measures. I hope she comes to my door and asks for my guns because if she does she is going to get the bullet first if you know what I mean.

      Dead Lord protect us from OBUMMER & Hitlary becomming POTUS & VICE POTUS in 2012 and save America as we know it.
      I Pray in your name lord, AMEN.

  9. WHY GUN CONTROL??? Because, when he collapses the USA and declares Martial Law, Joe Citizen won't have guns to fight back against his "civilian army."

  10. keith Rajotte says:

    Don't let them Take our GUNS we will all be slaves to the Man!!!

  11. Luke 22:35-36 Then Jesus asked them, “When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?” “Nothing,” they answered. 36 He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.
