LAPD lobbying to end gun rights

Remember when Obama said that he wouldn't try to take away the guns of honest, law-abiding Americans?  When you see the bill that was introduced by his party it is clear that was just another lie that he used to get elected.

This is a bill that should not be passed.  It is a direct assault on the Constitution on both the Due Process and 2nd Amendment grounds.  Worse yet, it doesn't address the problem because it's not meant to address the problem.  It's meant to be a tool that the liberal-progressive-socialist Democrats can use to abrogate the 2nd Amendment and, like the thieves of Tammany Hall, ensure that only the ruling elite and their supporters have that right.

Imagine, your name is put on a list of suspected terrorists by someone you don't even know because maybe, just maybe, you wrote a harsh letter to a newspaper, a Senator or a Congressman.  Or maybe you belong to the NRA or write a blog like this one.  Then you go down to buy a new shotgun to hunt with and, WHAMMO!, your purchase is denied.  You ask why and the dealer says he doesn't know.  All he has is a rejection on the instant check through the State Police.

You ask the State Police and they say they don't know anything and all they have is that it's "Federal."  You go to the FBI, ATF and the Justice Department and are met with blank stares and shrugged shoulders.  Now you know that in order for you to buy a shotgun to hunt with you will have to hire a lawyer and file a suit in Federal Court.  So you have the money and you do so.

All your attorney is given is a heavily redacted document that makes no sense.  The judge can't even see the full file.  The government's position is that it can't be revealed.  You can't face your accuser because the government won't identify the accuser.  You can't call witnesses because the government won't show you the full accusation.  You are in a system that would make Joseph Stalin smile with pleasure.

And they plan on doing it in the name of making us safer.  These Senators, liberal-progressive-socialist Democrats all, along with enablers like Mike Bloomberg and Chief Kelly and the Chief of the LAPD, absolutely plan to take away the guns of honest, law abiding citizens.

I guarantee you that Barack H. Obama will sign the bill if it gets to his desk.  He knows he lied but that was to get elected.  Now he has to consolidate his power as fast and far as he can so he can retain that power.  And if not him, the next socialist president.

S. 1317, titled "Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009" should actually be titled "Denying Any American a Firearm Just Because We Say So Act of 2009."  It gives Eric Holder, the worst, most incompetent Attorney General in history, the discretion to deny anyone the right to purchase and own a firearm not based on Probably Cause but only on mere "suspicion" and "belief." It is a direct affront to the Constitution and a slap in the face of all law-abiding Americans.

To make matters worse, there is a companion bill, S.2820 that is titled "Preserving Records of Terrorist & Criminal Transactions Act of 2009" which is in fact a national gun registration bill.  No gun sale is exempted even if the person isn't on the nebulous "Terrorist Watch List" so it's clear that all Americans are considered "Terrorists & Criminals" if they buy a firearm.

Contact your Senators and Representatives now.  This is something that must be stopped.

And make sure you donate to whoever is running against Senators Lautenberg, Schumer, Levin, Reed, Feinstein and Whitehouse.  These people need to become unemployed as soon as possible.

Finally, if I were a New Yorker, I'd start thinking about what Mike Bloomberg, who got into office as a closet liberal-progressive-socialist in RINO clothing and now acts more like a petty dictator who wants to tell everyone else how to live their lives, has really done for New York City.  Are your taxes lower?  Is business better?  Do you enjoy life more?  If not, then you should fire him next election.  New York would be better off as New York, New York, rather than as New York, just-like-California.  (Broke, over-regulated and over-taxed.)
