They’re coming to take me away…..haha

The men in the funny white suits (or maybe brown shirts) are coming!

Introduced into the 111th Congress was a bill, H.R. 2159, the Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009. Why don’t they just call it what it really is? The Denying Firearms to Anyone Who Fails to Accept the Liberal Lies Act of 2009.

The opening text of the bill goes something like this:

A BILL

To increase public safety by permitting the Attorney General to deny the transfer of a firearm or the issuance of firearms or explosives licenses to a known or suspected dangerous terrorist.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the ‘Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2009’.

SEC. 2. GRANTING THE ATTORNEY GENERAL THE AUTHORITY TO DENY THE SALE, DELIVERY, OR TRANSFER OF A FIREARM OR THE ISSUANCE OF A FIREARMS OR EXPLOSIVES LICENSE OR PERMIT TO DANGEROUS TERRORISTS.

(a) Standard for Exercising Attorney General Discretion Regarding Transferring Firearms or Issuing Firearms Permits to Dangerous Terrorists- Chapter 44 of title 18, United States Code, is amended–

(1) by inserting the following new section after section 922:

‘Sec. 922A. Attorney General’s discretion to deny transfer of a firearm

‘The Attorney General may deny the transfer of a firearm pursuant to section 922(t)(1)(B)(ii) if the Attorney General determines that the transferee is known (or appropriately suspected) to be or have been engaged in conduct constituting, in preparation for, in aid of, or related to terrorism, or providing material support thereof, and the Attorney General has a reasonable belief that the prospective transferee may use a firearm in connection with terrorism.

Last I heard, being a terrorist is already a felony crime, so why the need for this bill? A look to the recent Department of Homeland Security memos about domestic terrorism quantifies anyone that believes the government is plotting to take away our Second Amendment rights is a potential right-wing extremist.

Many rightwing extremist groups perceive recent gun control legislation as a
threat to their right to bear arms and in response have increased weapons and ammunition stockpiling, as well as renewed participation in paramilitary training exercises. Such activity, combined with a heightened level of extremist paranoia, has the potential to facilitate criminal activity and violence.

If you voice your opinion about any of the following items,  you could be (in the DHS eyes) a terrorist

1. Current Economic and Political Climate

2. Historical Presidential Election

3. Illegal Immigration

or if you are a one of the  Disgruntled Military Veterans you fit the profile of a domestic terrorist.

So, because I believe that President Obama is leading our country to financial disaster with his stimulus bill, because I’ve expressed my concern on the internet that I believe President Obama  may not fit the legal requirements to be President, because I believe that illegal immigrants are criminals and should not get a penny of US taxpayer money and should be shipped back to where-ever they came from, and because I believe that, through bills like this and the Blair Holt Firearms Registration Act, the government is trying to take away my Second Amendment rights……..  You see where I’m going with this?

This bill, if made law, would give the Attorney General the ability to indiscriminately strip US citizens of their Constitutional rights. This bill isn’t about keeping real terrorists from acquiring firearms, that is already covered by the National Firearms Act and countless other state and federal laws. This bill would enable the government to systematically remove guns from the hands of it’s citizens. Not only that, but it provides the government the ability to illegally label anyone, not following along like a faithful puppy, a terrorist.

Can you say Socialism anyone?

  1. This abuse of power is exactly why each state needs to re-declare their sovereignty according to the tenth amendment

    “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.”

    Also people need to become aware of the principles of 98 (also referred to as the Kentucky resolution or the Virginia resolution). The principles of 98 laid down the frame work for the tenth amendment stating that the federal government only has power that is granted by the states and thus by the people. Should the federal government assume powers that were not granted by the states; the states could then decide to make that power void with in their borders.

    The reason the states should have power is because of the counties, townships, and borrows; you know the small government that is right down the road from you. The ones that you can go talk to…. These are the governments that should be the strongest because they are the ones that act directly with the people and are influence more by the people then the federal government. I will agree with the person sitting in the Oval office right now (he is not the president he should have never been considered to run and should be kick out), it should trickle up. The government should be the strongest at the local level and progressively become less influential the higher you go.
