OBAMA REPORTEDLY SET TO DECLARE EXECUTIVE ACTION ON FIREARMS

(Dec. 13, 2015) — “It’s not yet known what form Obama’s executive orders will take, but insiders suspect they will involve background checks in one form or another. Specifically, they may close the so-called ‘gun show loophole,’ which allows customers to purchase firearms without being subject to a check. There has also been talk of redefining what qualifies as a ‘licensed dealer,’ which would expand the number of gun distributors who must abide by federal laws requiring the checks.”
How long is it going to take before this numbskull 114th Congress carries out its sworn Constitutional responsibilities and impeaches the creature from hell posing as our president? Obama is again threatening to make law, the responsibility of the Congress. His is, according to Article II, Section 1, Clause 8, to ” … faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
While the president may legally issue Executive Orders to members of the Administration; “While they do bypass the U.S. Congress and the standard legislative law making process, no part of an executive order may direct the agencies to conduct illegal or unconstitutional activities.”[Emphasis added] Regarding “Gun Control,” any action this current poor excuse for a president takes will have a deleterious effect on the Second Amendment and would be “Unconstitutional.” And why would that be the case? The Second Amendment states precisely, “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.”
Former Supreme Court Associate Justice John Paul Stevens proposed adding five words to the Second Amendment which he thought might solve all the problems. Here is the Second Amendment with the addition he proposed: “…well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms when serving in the Militia shall not be infringed.”
Following is the exact wording as authenticated, as ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, then-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.
Yet, several states have most definitely INFRINGED upon our rights. But, I will concede that our elected State representative have not only the duty, but an obligation to weed out by such means as are reasonable and available, the mentally unstable, those with any type of CRIMINAL history. By Criminal I mean and legislators must understand, Criminals are those who have committed a felony; it does not include the guy or gal who got a speeding ticket or spit on the sidewalk or littered. It means the would-be bad actor lacking any common sense, the idiot who publicly announced his belief in terrorism or hatred of any class of decent human beings. Damn it, Common Sense should and MUST be the guideline to follow. Opinions to the contrary count for nothing.
Currently 23 states have State Defense Forces separate and distinct from the National Guard and NOT subject to call-up for active military duty. This notion may ell be the solution to Obama’s overreach in the area of “Gun Control.” Each State’s Governor and/or the legislature could require that ALL gun owners accept the fact that they as privileged citizens are therefore members of their State’s SDF and the federal power grabbers would be stopped cold. Check out the following article, linked here. Individuals assessed or diagnosed as having mental disorders, convicted felons and spousal or child abusers should NOT be permitted to own, carry or use any type of lethal weapon, be it a firearm, a bow and arrow, a hunting knife or a machete. Under such restrictions and limitations, the antiquated firearms laws of several states such as my own State of New Jersey could and should be brought into compliance with the obvious and clear meaning and intent of the Second Amendment.
Idiots such as Obama, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein and numerous police officials proclaim that guns are ONLY offensive weapons, which is just so much nonsense. If an individual breaks into my residence, I will just blow, in self-defense, his worthless self to bits as is my constitutional right and duty. Any more questions, Obama, Boxer, Feinstein, Biden, Schumer and your ilk?
Americans are a decent Creator-worshiping 320-million-strong corps of peaceful humanity. Let’s just leave that alone or all hell will break loose. None of us wants a radical armed confrontation, but you can bet your bottom dollar, if this stupid bureaucracy occupying the beltway of Washington, DC fails to take appropriate action to put Mr. Pol Pot Obama on a short leash, all hell is going to break loose before the 2016 election takes place. Young Mr. Paul Ryan, Pay Attention, Impeachment of several members of that diseased bureaucracy is now in order. DO IT!
