The Obama administration has always had three main objectives: Obamacare, (seizing control of one sixth of the American economy and turning it into a Democrat patronage slush fund), “immigration reform” (the Amnesty and voter registration of 20 to 30 million illegal alien Mexicans to ensure perpetual power for the Democrat party) and gun control (making sure White Americans do not have the means to resist the tyranny the Democrats want to create.)
The Huffington Post reports: “The Obama administration has conducted informal discussions with groups from both ends of the gun-policy spectrum, including law enforcement and gun-rights organizations, and is set to hold formal meetings as early as this week in an effort to chart out a set of new firearms policies, administration officials say.”
Since the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution clearly states that “the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed,” there is no need for any administration to have a “policy” on it. The question is settled for good and all –for anyone who can read and who respects the US Constitution, much like that passage in the Constitution that requires the president to be a natural born US citizen.
The article notes “Spearheaded by the Department of Justice, the talks were described by one individual involved in the discussions as a feeling-out process. With more official meetings set to begin shortly, they provide the clearest indication to date that the White House is readying a response to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and 19 others at Tucson in early January. ‘As the president said, we should focus on sound, effective steps that will keep guns out of the hands of the criminals, fugitives, people with serious mental illness, and others who have no business possessing a gun and who are prohibited by laws on the books from owning a gun,’ Justice Department spokesman Matthew Miller said.”
The law already prohibits mentally ill people and felons from owning a gun. It would be trivial to set up a government “800″ number so that anyone selling a gun can make sure the buyer isn’t mentally ill or an ex-felon. Why isn’t this done? There are two reasons: (1).The Democrats are concerned about protecting the privacy and “rights” of felons and the mentally ill (who tend to vote Democrat) and (2).the Democrats want a certain amount of gun violence in the US to “justify” gun control laws.
The article goes on “The goal is to finalize a set of policy changes, including, perhaps, legislation that could pass through a Congress hostile to abridgments of Second Amendment rights.”
I hope Obama is foolish enough to try to pass a gun control law. White Americans could use a reminder why they should never trust the Democrats.
