Anti-Gun Advocates Use Sneaky Language

United-Nations-gun-ban-sculpture

After today’s first meeting of President Obama’s gun control task force, created after the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting, a spokesman for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence said that they’re not pushing to take guns away from law-abiding citizens:

After meeting with Vice President Biden on Wednesday, the president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence said consensus is developing around broadening and strengthening criminal background checks for gun purchasers as part of a comprehensive approach to reducing gun violence.

“But comprehensive, words like ‘comprehensive’ and ‘broad’ don’t mean taking guns away from law-abiding citizens,” Dan Gross told reporters outside the West Wing. “They are genuinely committed very hearteningly to that idea…staking out that middle ground that clearly exists.”

That might be reassuring at first blush, but let’s remember that today’s prohibitionists learned a lesson from alcohol prohibition. Outright bans and confiscation don’t work.

Rather, they know that the most effective approach is to harass gun owners, and would-be gun owners, with endless regulation and enforcement that makes buying, owning, transporting and carrying a firearm all but impossible.

So are Obama and his allies in the anti-gun movement going to push for legislation to confiscate guns, and ban new sales? Almost certainly not. Are we going to see them push for huge amounts of new red tape that complicates gun sales, purchases and possession in the hopes that Americans give up trying to exercise their 2nd amendment rights?

Absolutely.

    Muslim Broth­er­hood in U.S. government

    Pres­i­dent Obama’s affinity for Islam and the
    Muslim Broth­er­hood is apparent with six par­tic­ular appointees in his
    admin­is­tra­tion who are asso­ci­ated with the Broth­er­hood. According to an
    Egyptian mag­a­zine, Rose
    El-Youssef, the six are:

    Arif Alikhan, assis­tant sec­re­tary of
    Home­land Secu­rity for policy development

    Mohammed Eli­b­iary, a member of the
    Home­land Secu­rity Advi­sory Council

    Rashad Hus­sain, the U.S. spe­cial envoy
    to the Orga­ni­za­tion of the Islamic Conference

    Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the
    Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC)

    Imam Mohamed Magid, pres­i­dent of the
    Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)

    Eboo Patel, a member of Pres­i­dent
    Obama’s Advi­sory Council on Faith-Based Neigh­bor­hood Partnerships.

    A little history/bio of each appointee can be seen
    in the recent article, Muslim
    Broth­er­hood Infil­trates Obama Administration.

    The Muslim Broth­er­hood was founded in 1928 by
    rad­ical Islamist, Hassan al-Banna, who wrote “it is the nature of Islam to
    dom­i­nate, not to be dom­i­nated, to impose its laws on all nations and extend
    its power to the entire planet.”

    Since Obama spent many of his early years in an Islamic cul­ture, he knows
    full well the goals of Islam, including the Muslim Broth­er­hood. While one
    could argue that he is simply naive in accom­mo­dating the Broth­er­hood today,
    the evi­dence simply does not sup­port such a conclusion.

        I have been warning folks about this for years…
        Alinsky by any means and islams taqiyya/kitman deception
        are virtually the same…Communist in America have used Political Correctness to do what the MB is now doing with islam…
        Folks are so gullible and when the holy islamic book tells its followers to “exploit” this just like PC uses false morality to exploit true moral tolerance
        they march right thru the existing structures un- opposed by lieing and deceptions…

          Me too, lost a few family members over it, I was making muslims feel bad talking about radical Islam. Oh poor people, never the acknowledgment of suicide bombers, stoning to death, beheading, horrible treatment of women in general…I am suppose to ignore and worry that someone had their feeling hurt. Makes me livid.

      The magazine started as a cultural and literary publication by Rose al Yusuf, but became a political magazine by 1928. It had since lost its independence, functioning as a mouthpiece for the Hosni Mubarak regime prior to Mubarak’s ouster from the presidency. Like other government propaganda sources, the magazine is now adopting a tone more in line with the general anti-Mubarak sentiment.

      And Steve Emerson has also has a dubious background. Reading the article it admits one has to draw many correlations and connections and presumptions of the connection of at least several of the members. The tactic is alinsky like with a small kernal of truth and a mountain of assumption and innuendo built around it. It seems that it isn’t much different then the Salem Witch Trials. An accusation that played on peoples fears followed by dodgy proofs. I will keep an eye out for these but am suspect of agenda of the providers of the news.

      Who’s talking the demise of the 2nd Amendment?

      *President Obama himself, specifically in work done in conjunction with an initiative at the Joyce Foundation for several years beginning in 1999. The objective of the project was “the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment” by stacking respected law review publications with anti-Second Amendment diatribes, giving court judges a falsely driven impression that the tide of legal opinion was turning.

      *The four Supreme Court justces who dissented in the 2008 Heller decision which (we hope) established once and for all that the Second Amendment relates to an individual’s right, not just the rights of a collective “militia.”

      The four Supreme Court justces who dissented in the 2010 McDonald decision which ruled that, as described at the link, “the right of an individual to ‘keep and bear arms’ protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states.”

      ………how many times are we just 1 SCOTUS away from lost 2nd Amend rights…..the most clearly worded part of the bill of rights…….but the left can twist it and warp it to what Stalin, Che and Hitler would be proud of.

    An investigation of President Obama and his administration
    must commence immediately.

    Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress,
    author and self-described Liberal Democrat Marxist Muslim who campaigned for Barack Obama, revealed the identity of Obama’s White House appointees who have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood
    (see Muslim Brotherhood in our White House – Vetting Obama).

    Obama’s appointees could access sensitive military and National Defense information while in our White House, to include military missions that were planned for SEAL Team Six. Important questions surround the murder of 30 U.S. special operations troops, which included 17 members of Navy SEAL Team Six.

    In every mass killing there is something present, other than the gun, that is the subject of intense conjecture and, yet, seldom, satisfactorily, explained. That is the disgruntled, the weird acting, the unexploded time bomb, male, who perpetrates the act. No females yet, but it’s only a matter of time. And, as in the Sandy Hook incident there was, as is nearly always the case, a parent, or parents, who couldn’t stand the kid, are at the end of their rope with them, or wish their kid had never been born, etc. Why not, then, have a nationwide data base used to exchange one prick kid, with another kid’s asshole parents, and vice versa? You see these worthless, often dangerous kids need, above all, sustenance, which makes a provider necessary. They will not strike out on their own, get a job, and provide for themselves, as was the norm in days of yore. Their atrophied, or in many cases obese, musculature, keeps them confined to their darkened rooms, a self imposed cell, as it were. And quite often they’re driven, inexplicable as it seems, to kill their parent, or parents, before setting out on their “statement”, killing spree. Why not use, experiment with, at least, an exchange of families then? Many Urchins, budding criminals really, became pillars of their communities in the Midwest after being snatched off the streets of New York, and put on “Orphan Trains” in the late 1800’s. Seems to me both parties could use a simple “change of Scenery”, a different household to live in, a new outlook on life, which the exchange would effect.. We might enliven the proceedings by matching Neo Nazis, thieves, liars, racists , Bullies, sadists, masochists, Nascarists, drunks, Liberals, Conservatives, and other interesting sub groups, together. Who knows, after a week, or two, the proximity to another, similar, human being might create an arc powerful enough to obliterate both, and, perhaps, “mama makes three”, of the principals which, in turn, may prevent a mass killing of other, undeserving, victims. Most importantly, the need to dismantle the Second Amendment would no longer exist, since we’d be dealing with human time bombs, not assault rifles. And for you skeptics, I’ll stack this, admittedly off the wall idea, up against anything, ” Fast and Furious”, “You didn’t build that”, “A bump in the road to Benghazi”, that has emanated from Obama’s, or one of his cadre of bizarre Czars noggins, during his regime. Go Niners…
