The Left Is Convinced Americans Wont Fight For 2nd Amendment Rights
Once cowed at the thought of provoking Second Amendment supporters, leftists will soon attempt to ban assault weapons (and much more) as legislation offered by Dianne Feinstein makes its way to the Senate floor. It seems that D.C. liberals have finally become convinced that American gun owners are too cowardly, too lazy or too dependent upon the generosity of Big Brother to fight for their Second Amendment rights.
During the past four years, the gun banning-Left have watched as American buyers broke sales records in the purchase of semi-automatic rifles. Opting for these and other powerful, efficient weapons, it is estimated that some 100 million private citizens are now in possession of over 300 million firearms. And these numbers continue to grow with each passing month.
Yet its against this backdrop of Americas unprecedented determination to assert the fundamental permanence of Second Amendment guarantees that Diane Feinstein, Michael Bloomberg, Barack Obama and others will choose to implement gun bans, demand the federal registration of firearms, and even legislate outright confiscation.
Maybe Democrats are confident that fallout from Sandy Hook will provide the floor votes necessary to disarm the American people. But if the Left is willing to risk picking this fight with millions of American gun owners, it must also believe something far more importantthat Americans who have spent years arming themselves against the ultimate expression of tyranny by their own governmentthe overthrow of the Second Amendment will choose to not fight when the time finally comes.

Mark the date, it isnt gonna be long before moderate Republicans start going on television to push the notion that guns are hurting Republicans with independent voters and women. Just like abortion, just like the pro-lifers are hurting Republicans with independents. Just like immigration. The moderate linguine-spined Republicans, it isnt gonna be long as this controversy heats up, you know, they wilt with a little heat. It doesnt take the moderate Republicans long to slink away. They dont like having to stand up and defend what they believe. Theyd rather give away a core belief. Theyd rather annunciate something that would make them friends with their enemies."

>> HOW THE LEFT VIEWS GUN OWNERS
Say... if you know where that guy got his high capacity magazines could you FReepmail me? Thx
This is about way more than guns. The kenayn will use this as a test EO.
There is are a lot other items on the marxist wet dream list that they can’t get through Congress. Barry would be happy to EO them but first he needs to measure how the courts and the GOP will respond.
Brownells is a good place to check.

Oh I tried them! Midway too. The only thing that’s still in stock are the one-round and the one-half-round mags. ;-)
The Left has gone bonkers. They assume they can do anything they want.
"Yes, Barry. Let me know when you want to round up all of those GOD and gun lovers."
Colin Powell On Gun Control: Why Cant We Test Everybody Before Gun Purchases? "Powell is looking forward to Vice President Joe Biden's formal recommendations on curbing gun violence. VP Biden's report is expected Tuesday."
If we do not retain our 2nd Amendment Rights, then all of the other Rights are just words written in ink on paper (or parchment) by “a bunch of old, dead, slave-owning white guys” which have no relevance in the modern world.
Which Right will disappear next? Or will the rest go one immediately after the other?
Domino Theory anyone?
Here is a great way to contact ALL those who represent you and let them know where you stand on the issue. Join the fight!
Keep thinking that, leftards.
Actually, the 1st amendment right to FREE EXERCISE OF RELIGION was severely attacked by this administration already.
My prediction - None of the legislation being discussed will ever make it the floor for a vote in either chamber. If you are a Democrat Senator from a flyover state, voting for an anti-2A bill is going to get you primaried faster than a pizza disappears at a Weight Watchers meeting.
Ultimately, I believe Obama will try to EO away ammunition. He will go through the EPA (lead), HHS (public safety) and/or Homeland Security (anti-terrorism.)
Guns and freedom
By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano
Published January 10, 2013
“To assure that no government would infringe the natural rights of anyone here, the Founders incorporated Jeffersons thesis underlying the Declaration into the Constitution and, with respect to self-defense, into the Second Amendment. As recently as two years ago, the Supreme Court recognized this when it held that the right to keep and bear arms in ones home is a pre-political individual right that only sovereign Americans can surrender and that the government cannot take from us, absent our individual waiver.”
They’re morons and civic-ally illiterate.
Here in Michigan the newspaper reporters are still screeching that everything the state GOP does being illegitimate because Obama won the election. Yet those same reporters won’t even respond to anyone who points out that Obama didn’t win a single seat in the state legislature.
They’re desperate for a one way dictatorship.
