The Gun-Grab Is Starting

A gun show in San Antonio, TX where dealers still conduct the same background checks that they do at their stores.

Tomorrow, January 8, 2013, the Illinois State Senate is scheduled to conduct its preliminary vote and debate on banning all semi-automatic and automatic weapons. In addition, they intend to give law enforcement officers the power to create laws and regulations regarding privately owned gun ranges.

Obama sent his top goon, Joey Biden, to the Senate with a mandate to pass sweeping gun control legislation. Mind you, according to the Second Amendment, any legislation that restricts firearms ownership or the freedom to carry lawfully owned firearms is an infringement and therefore unconstitutional. Joey is a former senator and the current Vice President. Ironically, he has been largely absent from the Senate. As VP, his primary job is supposedly as the president of the Senate (equivalent to the Speaker of the House).

Senator hypocrite Feinstein of Soviet California has sponsored a bill that would ban more than half of the legally owned pistols and rifles that law-abiding citizens already own. The bill suggests that those who already own certain rifles and pistols would have to apply for permission to keep them. The application process will take at least 6 months, during which time the lawful owners are subject to 4th Amendment violations. In addition, it appears that the author of that bill somehow overlooked the prohibition of ex post facto laws. For those who have never read the US Constitution, Article 1 Section 9 Clause 3 states that laws that make a lawful action criminal retroactively is unconstitutional. In simple translation, if you legally purchased a doodad last year but doodads and gizmos are outlawed today, you cannot be prosecuted for owning one, since it was legally purchased while still legal.

Feinstein will officially enter her bill once the new Senate session for the 113th Congress starts on January 22nd, two days after Obama's second term inauguration. The full test of the bill will not be available to the public until it is officially entered and recorded.

Feinstein's proposal also threatens to violate the 4th Amendment in seizing such property upon the death of the owner. The owner should be allowed to transfer ownership upon death through use of a will. However, Feinstein believes that your property isn't really yours and that the government has a right to decide what happens to it when you die. We have a few words to describe that ideology:  tyranny, socialism, unfair, immoral, unethical, and WRONG.

What makes Feinstein a hypocrite is that she currently employs armed bodyguards and she used to have a concealed carry permit. You see, Feinstein and the rest of her socialist tyrant buddies believe that only their special few snowflakes should be allowed those special rights that are guaranteed by the US Constitution. Individuals be damned, it's all about the special collectives.

Then, over in the House, you have devout socialists who bend knee to Cuba rather than properly filling their duties as mandated by their oaths of office, the US Constitution, and their constituents. One prime example is Jose Serrano. He is also pushing to take guns away from law-abiding citizens in order to leave them soft targets to be victims of violent crimes and tyranny.

In the wake of all of the above, the US is experiencing a firearms frenzy in 2013, so far, that looks to surpass the one in 2012. Before any legislation is passed that will infringe upon our rights, people are stocking up on new firearms and ammunition. This is to the point that many gun stores and arms dealers cannot keep up with the demand. Prices are starting to rise due to the laws of supply and demand.

This run on weapons and ammunition brings to the forefront the so-called  "gun show loophole". No such loophole exists. If a weapons dealer sells a weapon at a gun show, the buyer is still required to pass all of the background checks just as though they bought the weapon at the store. The so-called "loophole" is then passed off as the sale from a private owner to a private owner without a background check. Basically, it's the same as buying a car. Most car dealers would require a drivers' license before test driving or purchasing a car (new or used). However, most people selling their own cars privately do not require a license or proof of insurance as part of the transaction. Furthermore, it is illegal for private citizens to conduct background checks on another individual.

However, there is no loophole. Also, allowing just anybody access to medical, military, security clearance, and credit records violates the Privacy Act of 1974. They also violate the 4th and 5th Amendments.
