Obama Attacks Gun Owners With New Executive Orders

We can’t say we weren’t warned. If Congress wants to provide a helpful rubber stamp, fine. If not…

Unable to overcome opposition to new gun laws from Republicans and a handful of conservative Democrats, the White House has resorted to issuing executive orders which do not need Congressional approval.

The new orders ban Americans from buying weapons that the US military has provided to foreign governments. Around 250,000 guns, including assault rifles, have been re-imported back into the US since 2005, according to White House figures.

A second order prevents gun buyers from registering machine guns or sawn-off shotguns to a corporation and therefore avoid undergoing a personal background check.

The White House said the orders were intended “make progress toward reducing gun violence” in the wake of the Newtown massacre even as “Congress fails to act on common-sense proposals”.

It should be noted that even Harvard can find no indication that more laws restricting gun ownership would reduce violence.

At least someone is putting up resistance:

Missouri, a Republican state, is expected to move next month to forbid national gun laws from being enforced within the state’s borders.

The bill would make it a crime for FBI agents or others to enforce federal gun laws and would allow citizens to sue any law enforcement officer who arrested them.

The odds of federal courts not striking down such a law are nonexistent, but any resistance could provide a crucial rallying point.

The approach to total disarmament of the population, like everything else on the liberal agenda, is incremental. These executive orders will be followed by others, then still more, until we have been rendered completely defenseless. We are running out of time.
