Democrat Admits Obama Agenda Is Total Gun Ban

Comments Off on Democrat Admits Obama Agenda Is Total Gun Ban

You CAN NOT ban the 2nd amendment with a law passed by the Senate, House and signed by the President. You MUST admend the Constitution with 2/3 Senate approval and 3/4 of the States ratify it as well. This is the ONLY legal way to do it. Guns must first be registered before confiscation can occur.  Background checks = registration

Democratic Austin City Council member and potential next mayor Mike Martinez admitted during a speech that the Obama administration’s long term gun control agenda is focused on banning firearms altogether.

Pointing out a sign held by a protester which read, “stop gun ban!,” Martinez remarked, “someone needs to inform him that there is no gun ban currently, but because of the work we’re doing here today, we will make your sign legitimate shortly, so you hang on to that.” The crowd cheered as Martinez made his vow.

Organizer Hilary Rand with Moms Demand Action claimed that Second Amendment advocates were “perpetrating things that are just not true,” adding, “Nobody wants to ban guns here we’re just trying talking about coming up with sensible solutions that can help make us safer, we’re talking about strengthening the laws that we currently have and creating new laws that will help us enforce those laws we currently have, nobody wants to change the constitution.”

However, Martinez’ assertion that a total gun ban would be made “legitimate” confounds this rhetoric and underscores the fact that tighter gun control restrictions and gun registrations are merely stepping stones to a British-style all out ban on firearms.

These rare glimpses into the true guiding force behind the gun control agenda occasionally rear their head during public speeches.

If you infringe upon the Second Amendment protections, you will be removed from office

Congressman Steve Stockman Wednesday reinforced his intentions to use a “blue slip” to kill any Senate anti-gun bill that contains expanded background checks.

Stockman will also deliver U-Haul gift cards to the offices of Mark Begich, Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu, Kay Hagan and Max Baucus should they vote for the package, to help with move-out expenses after they are defeated by voters in 2014.

“A requirement to make citizens submit to a background check imposes a taxSuch legislation cannot originate in the Senate.  The bill is automatically unconstitutional,” said Stockman.

“Constitutional rights don’t require permission slips.  If you infringe upon the Second Amendment’s absolute protections, you will be removed from office,” said Stockman.  “The language of the Second Amendment is perhaps the starkest and most absolute in the Constitution.  ‘The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’  That means any obstacle whatsoever is strictly prohibited.  The right to keep and bear arms cannot even be approached.”

“Criminals nationwide are applauding Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey,” said Stockman. “Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey want to give the federal government the name and address of everyone who buys a gun.  They want to turn our entire country into Chicago.”

“Of the 1.5 million background checks conducted in 2010, only 13 criminals were caught and jailed but hundreds of thousands of law-abiding citizens were denied self-protection because of administrative errors and false matches,” said Stockman. “Background checks lead to confiscation from law-abiding citizens and more crime from criminals. ”

The Manchin-Toomey anti-gun compromise reportedly would mandate background for gun sales at gun shows and over the Internet, despite the well-documented fact criminals don’t look to gun shows or Internet sales for guns.

A “blue slip” is a resolution that automatically returns to the Senate any bill that violates the “origination clause” of the United States Constitution.  The origination clause states “All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives.”

Blue slip resolutions are immediately considered as a matter of constitutional privilege, are debatable for an hour and are not subject to amendment.

According to The Heritage Foundation, background check mandates imposes a new tax by forcing individuals to pay for background checks when selling or giving away a firearm.  The mandate to use the National Instant Criminal Background Check System does not provide a service to the buyer or seller but to the government, making it a tax.

Additionally, the Supreme Court ruled last year in NFIB v. Sebelius that mandating citizens to pay for a service can be construed to be a tax, with Chief Justice John Roberts writing the majority opinion expanding the federal definition of a tax.
