Obama Moves to Advance U.N. Gun Ban Treaty

1 Comment

This is from Town Hall.

The more Obama opens his mouth, I hear the cries of Seig Heil,Seig Heil and I hear the scraping of hobnailed boots on the blacktop.

Email and call your Senators and tell them to oppose the Obama/UN gun grab.

 

When Barack Obama signed the U.N. Gun Ban Treaty last year, he invited global gun banners to carve up our constitutional freedom.

Now Obama is using the full force of the international community to pressure our U.S. Senators into replacing our Second Amendment rights with U.N.-style gun control.

Earlier this year, Obama conspired with the European Union to issue an international declaration demanding immediate “disarmament and arms control” under the United Nations Gun Ban Treaty.

Take action against Obama and the U.N. Sign NRA’s petition to the U.S. Senate today.

Obama and his anti-gun European allies vowed to ensure every nation’s “entry into force of the Arms Trade Treaty.”

And that’s not all.

In a meeting of non-governmental organizations and U.N. officials, Obama’s Assistant  Secretary of State declared that the White House is “already implementing the treaty” without Senate ratification!

“Make no mistake,” says Chris Cox, Executive Director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA).  “If the U.S. Senate fails to stand strong against the U.N. Gun Ban Treaty, and fight back against every backdoor attempt by the Obama administration to implement it, we will lose our gun rights and effectively lose our national sovereignty.”

Take action against Obama and the U.N. Sign NRA’s petition to the U.S. Senate today.

That’s because the U.N. Gun Ban Treaty would establish a permanent international gun control bureaucracy within the U.N. Office for Disarmament Affairs to oversee and influence gun policy in all nations.

It would also set the stage for an international gun registration system which in turn could pave the way for the eventual banning and confiscation of firearms. In fact, under the treaty’s guidelines, the United States government could be required, as a condition of importing firearms from other countries, to provide the exporting countries with the most sensitive, personal information of American gun owners.

“Gun owners and freedom-loving Americans need to remind their Senators that they work for us, NOT Barack Obama and NOT international gun ban zealots,” says Cox.  “And the best way we can do that is by signing NRA’s official petition to the U.S. Senate.”

For over 15 years, NRA has fought on the front lines to stop the U.N. Gun Ban Treaty from steamrolling our Bill of Rights.

But as Cox points out:  “In all of that time, we’ve never faced a president as dangerous as Barack Obama who is willing to lock arms with international tyrants against you, me, and our constitutional freedom.

NRA is calling on every American who cherishes their Second Amendment freedom and our national sovereignty to sign this petition.

The Senate is our only hope right now, says Cox.

“We can’t afford to leave a single vote on the table, so after you sign the petition, please encourage your friends and neighbors to sign as well.  If the U.N. Gun Ban Treaty is ever ratified into law, or implemented by Obama behind the scenes, we may never get a second chance to save the Second Amendment.”

Contact Your Senators and Representative to Stop Proposed Semi-Auto Firearm Importation Ban

Leave a comment

This is from The NRA-ILA.

It is time to get in touch with our Congress Critters and make our voices heard.

We need to call and email them.

 

 

We recently reported that U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), sponsor of the federal “assault weapon” and “large” magazine “ban”  of 1994-2004, is asking President Barack Obama to direct the BATFE to reinterpret a provision of the Gun Control Act of 1968 to prohibit the importation of various semi-automatic firearms and their parts.

In a letter to Obama, the text of which was included in an article published by the Daily Caller, Feinstein said that, “at a minimum,” the BATFE should: 

prohibit importation of all semiautomatic rifles that can accept, or be readily converted to accept, a large capacity ammunition magazine of more than 10 rounds . . . .  prohibit semiautomatic rifles with fixed magazines with a capacity of more than 10 rounds, prohibit the importation of the frame or receiver of any prohibited rifle . . . . prohibit the practice of importing assault rifles in parts ….  prohibit the use of a “thumbhole” stock . . . . and prohibit the importation of assault pistols.

This request is similar to the type of failed legislation Feinstein introduced in Congress last year (which would have imposed the biggest gun ban in American history), only this time she’s trying to achieve some of her ends through soliciting the president’s use of executive authority over firearm imports.  

Joining Feinstein in the fray this week were 80-plus U.S. House members who wrote their own semi-auto firearms import ban proposal letter to President Obama.  Initiated by Reps. John Conyers (D-Mich.) and Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), the letter urged Obama to compel the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to expand its ban on the importation of semi-automatic firearms.  (To see if your Representative signed the letter, please click here and scroll down below the letter to see the list of signatories.)

One might think it doesn’t make sense for Feinstein and these House members to agitate for gun control in an election year, especially one in which a number of anti-gun senators and representatives are going to be facing the voters, but they are that obstinately committed to gun control.

Please take action NOW to stop these proposed restrictions on the importation of firearms.  Please contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative TODAY, and tell them to OPPOSE a ban the importation of various semi-automatic firearms and their parts.

You can contact your U.S. Senators and your U.S. Representative by using the “Write Your Lawmakers” tool atwww.NRAILA.org.  You may also contact your Senators by phone at (202) 224-3121, and your Representative by phone at (202) 225-3121.

 

Republicans Pressing Reid to Delay the Anti-gun ObamaCare Mandate

Leave a comment

This is from AmmoLand.

Gun owners need to take action on this matter ASAP.

I have contacted my Senators, but I am not sure anything

will be done.

One is a DemocRat and the other is a RINO.

The bright spot is the RINO is up for reelection.

I pray the Tea Party here in Indiana will get a strong candidate

 to oppose Dan Coats.

 

Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- It’s what GOA has been calling for.  We’ve been begging Republicans to use any and every bill that comes before the Senate and to offer a repeal or delay of the ObamaCare mandate as an amendment.

And Tuesday, Senator Mitch McConnell did just that.

McConnell proposed a Unanimous Consent agreement that would allow Obama’s unemployment insurance extension to move forward — if REID WOULD SIMPLY GUARANTEE A VOTE ON DELAYING THE ANTI-GUN OBAMACARE MANDATE.

As we alerted you yesterday, we have seen where the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate is leading — with HHS regulations to waive all federal privacy laws in order to allow psychiatrists to turn in gun owners to the FBI’s NICS system.

This could potentially affect millions of gun owners!  And this is just one reason why Gun Owners of America has been opposing the ObamaCare mandate for several years.

So let’s review the bidding:  68% of Americans want to delay the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate.  Only 55% want to extend unemployment insurance.

Also remember this:  Republicans are not demanding that the ObamaCare mandate be delayed.  They’re only asking for a vote.

Not surprisingly, anti-gun crazies like Senators Dick Durbin and Chuck Schumer are outraged.

And six Republican defections gave them the 60 votes to overcome the filibuster and move the bill forward — though it still remains to be seen whether they can get 60 votes to shut out any amendments on the bill itself.

And, as we saw with April’s gun control votes, the ability to get 60 votes on the “motion to proceed” to a bill is not always the same as getting 60 votes to shut out amendments on the underlying legislation.

In other words, there is precedent where we have lost the initial “motion to proceed” vote but still won in the end.

But McConnell is right.  Before Harry Reid came on the scene, senators had a right to offer amendments dealing with the key issues of the day.  That Republicans have been forced to use this strategy is an indication of how ruthlessly partisan Harry Reid and Barack Obama have become.

NOTE:  There are six Republican Senators who voted with Harry Reid to overcome the filibuster, thus weakening McConnell’s hand to force an anti-ObamaCare vote.  They are Kelly Ayotte (NH), Dan Coats (IN), Sue Collins (ME), Dean Heller (NV), Lisa Murkowski (AK) and Rob Portman (OH).

ACTION:  Call or Click here to email your senators.  Have your wife and kids call your senators.  Have your neighbors and church members call your senators.  Have your dog call your senator.  Tell them to oppose cloture on the unemployment bill until a vote is allowed on delaying the anti-gun ObamaCare mandate.

Allen West says that ‘States will nullify Obamacare’

1 Comment

This is from The Washington Times Communities.

I agree with Lt. Col. West the states need to take the lead in

nullifying Obamacare.

Then the states need to call a Convention of States to reign in

the federal government.

During said convention the 17 Amendment needs to be repealed.

So our Senators become more in tune to the will and wishes

of the people in their home states.

Then if they go against the will of the people they can be replaced.

 

NASHVILLE, January 4, 2014 — Calling the execution of the healthcare law a “real constitutional crisis”, former Congressman Allen West was interviewed on Fox News’ “On the Record with Gretta Van Susteren” Friday night.

When Susteren asked West whether or not the state attorneys general were actually going to take any action against the Obama administration’s lawless handling of the healthcare law, West told Susteren that they wouldn’t have a choice because states were stepping in to keep the feds in check.

“One of the things you have to look at is whether or not they [the states] can go back and challenge this based upon a thin possibility of nullification; sovereign states using the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of the Constitution are not going to follow this [Obamacare]…”

But can the States nullify Obamacare?

According to Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, the “Father of the Constitution”: Absolutely.

West referred to the Ninth & Tenth Amendments as warrant for nullification. Here are those two Amendments broken down with the founders’ notes expounding this right of the states.

Jefferson wrote in the Kentucky Resolutions how to handle such federal usurpations of power:

“Where powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a nullification of the Act is the rightful remedy: that every State has a natural right in cases not within the compact, to nullify of their own authority all assumptions of power by others within their limits…”

Madison also confirmed Jeffersonian nullification in his Report of 1800 and his Notes on Nullification.

The powers delegated to Congress are few and defined. The Tenth Amendment provides explicit validation for nullification, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”

In regards to nullification, the Constitution does not delegate this power to the federal government. The Constitution also does not clearly prohibit nullification. Therefore, it can now clearly be concluded that nullification is a power reserved for the people of their respective states.

The Ninth Amendment expounds even further the right to nullification. “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

Jefferson explained that nullification was a natural right belonging to the people and their respective states. Because the Constitution does not expressly prohibit nullification, the federal government cannot deny or disparage this natural right of the people.
