I just read the whitehouse.gov site on the executive actions.
The EO’s were written by someone who hasn’t got a clue what the laws actually ARE, as its stating things that are already THE LAW as things that are being put into place by EO.
So basically its a whole bunch of executive orders and presidential memorandums that do nothing but pander to the low-information types like Brady Bunch, Moms Demanding Something, et al, to be able to say *Look! I signed a whole bunch of papers to make you feel safer!*
Even the HIPAA-centric EO does nothing, because for use in line with the 1968 GCA, those adjudicated as mentally defective, or unable to manage their own affairs, etc., ARE ALREADY BEING PUT INTO THE NICS AS PROHIBITED PERSONS. But I guess that this is like the Animal House *Double-Secret Probation* in that these folks are going to be put ito NICS twice, so that everyone knows that the Administration REALLY MEANS it this time.
Smoke and mirrors. Bread and Circuses. Dog and Pony. Call it what you will, the only thing these EO’s do as ask congress to approve more budget money to hire another 250 FBI personnel to be able to process the NICS checks faster, and to approve funding for another 200 ATF agents to surf the Interwebz looking for *illegal online sellers*.
Which means that all the *secret FB groups* where folks sell/trade guns are going to go buh-bye, because if you sell a gun on the internet, and FB is part of the Internet Experience, the ATF will come for you. And I’m sure that FB is going to be leaned on real hard to shut down gun trading/selling groups.
There you have it in a nutshell. $500 million dollars requested to hire ATF investigators to hang out all day and troll FB.
Also, I just realized that the one thing which EVERY Democrat was demanding only a few short weeks ago, and that the Moms Demand Something folks along with the Brady Bunchers were gnashing their teeth over was glaringly absent….
The EO’s didn’t mention a damned thing about blending the No-Fly and Terrorist Watch Lists into the NICS system.
I guess Obambi was told in no uncertain terms that if he put Mr. Winky into that particular hole in the wall, on the other side there was a meat grinder just waiting to eat…
What the hell is it with Congressleeches talking about gun *buybacks* by the FedGov?
*Buyback*, by its very definition, infers someone giving you the money YOU originally gave THEM to purchase a product. Last I checked, the FedGov isn’t selling guns to the citizenry, so they can’t, by definition, *buy back* something that they never produced/sold in the first place.
They could, if they were so inclined, make *offers to purchase* privately owned guns, and the populace could tell the Congressleeches to shove their money up their collective asses.
This is the problem with the un-educated generations we’ve been pushing through the progressive-infiltrated schools….they’ve been taught that their Rights are *granted* by a benevolent Goobermint, and that said benevolent Goobermint can do things like *buy back* private property.
We fought a war against that very mindset over 230 years ago…we don’t live in a monarchy where its assumed that everything belongs to a king, and only by his good graces do you own anything.
The cow-towed generations we’ve produced are going to have a rude awakening when the Tree of Liberty gets watered again. And I fear that time will come sooner rather than later.
OK….here’s the scoop. I need to spread the word about the holster business and the online distributors portal.
I don’t have an advertising budget. I can’t afford to buy e-mail lists (and to be honest, I hate that sort of marketing anyways…).
I really DO believe, though, that I am competitive with the online bargain-basement sellers, once you take into consideration the stuff that they tack onto the order, where I include it all for free (ie: Free Shipping, no 3% upcharge for using a credit card, and fully insured shipping)
So I’m pulling out al the stops. In a previous post I let folks know of the referral rewards program I’m offering. And now, I’m upping the ante. When folk order from the Dragons Hoard (the online distributors portal for firearms and accessories) each order will earn two and a half percent in Dragons Bux. Those credits can slowly build up over time, then can be cashed in against any of the hand-crafted leatherwork I do (no, the Dragons Bux can’t be used in the distributors portal, they can only be EARNED through the portal…)
So if someone uses a Capital One Cash Back Rewards Card and earns 2% cash back, they also earn 2.5% in Dragons Bux towards custom leather holsters.
Pass the word around!
OK….about ten days ago, I posted here and someone told me that I was rude and condescending.
I beg to differ. THIS is what rude is.
Seems a fellow who owns a gun store in Connecticut is all for Gov. Malloy’s attempt to deny gun ownership when the 4473 NICS check indicates that a person is on the terror watch list.
A list, mind you, that you have NO WAY of knowing that you are on, you have no way of knowing how to be taken off, you have no idea how you got on the list, were denied your 4th and 14th Amendment guarantees to Due Process, you haven’t been CONVICTED of anything, and so on.
This gun shop owner was interviewed and is ON RECORD as saying that “if someone is on a government list, I’m sure they are there for a good reason, and I won’t sell them a gun”.
Got that? A gun shop owner in CT is happy to deny anyone their rights if the gov’t puts them “on a list”, because if the gov’t didn’t have a damned good reason to put them “on a list” in the first place, they wouldn’t be there.
So much for Due Process.
…was more of the same old tired rhetoric, and he didn’t even try to dress it up. I mean, why bother trying to keep putting lipstick on a pig if the pig simply smells so bad that it won’t fool anyone, right?
Here’s what POTUS doesn’t understand….people in this country aren’t *living in fear*.
They are PISSED OFF at a President who is a spineless, gutless coward, who refuses to call the recent attcks on our soil by what they are…Terrorism.
He still thinks that if we lay down arms and roll over, that islam will simply change and welcome us with open arms to live side-by-side in peace and harmony, singing Kumbaya and rolling in fields of periwinkle.
The man needs serious mental treatment. Really….he needs to be committed for his own safety, and kept away from sharp objects.
What is it with the sudden push for an Article 5 Convention of States? Calls for this are coming not only from the left, but from the Right as well. Are they crazy?
Do the folks calling for such really want to entrust a complete trashing of he existing Constitution in favor of the current crop of politicians sitting down and drafting a completely new governing document?
You want the likes of Schumer, McCain, McConnell, Manchin, Toomey, Fienstien, Boxer….to draft a document that will place you under the thumb of government?
Calling for an Article 5 Convention is calling for open Civil War. No way on Gods Green Earth should we go down a path that will ignite the already unstable powderkeg of sheer political loathing the two sides have of one another.
I agree that we cannot continue as we’re going. There should be an amicable split, where some states go Left, some go Right, and still others go Libertarian, all keeping the original Constitution intact, and once the split is done, they amend for themselves as they see fit.
But a wholesale trashing, which would leave us with NO operable Constitution in the interim? So much the wrong path.
