Skip to comments.Obama Gunning for the Second Amendment
Posted on 03/21/2009 6:36:36 PM PDT by Mobile Vulgus
This will seem like a strange way to open a piece of commentary, but the gun owners who voted for Barack Obama believing he respected Second Amendment rights remind me of the bumbling Inspector Clouseau. Specifically, I think of the scene from The Return of the Pink Panther in which Clouseau was getting a real dressing down from his superior, Chief Inspector Dreyfus. The issue was that Clouseau had naively stood by talking to a blind organ grinder outside a bank while the institution was being robbed. After Dreyfus pointed out that the organ grinder was the lookout for the thieves and Clouseau said that such a thing was impossible because the beggar was blind, Dreyfus asked how Clouseau knew this. Clouseau replied, He told me so.
Quite frankly, this wasnt nearly as stupid as believing that a member of Chicagos socialist New Party, who was weaned in a black power church, was a gun caesar and not a gun seizer. And now Obama is in fact striking a blow against the Second Amendment. He isnt doing anything obvious such as advocating a ban on semi-automatic rifles, however (not yet); rather, in typical Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals style, he is attacking where his adversaries least expect.
So what is the latest change you can believe in? Gordon Hutchinson reports at a blog called The Shootist that Obama has just disallowed the Department of Defense (DOD) from selling spent brass shell casings to manufacturers of ammunition for the civilian market. This means that these companies will now have to by new brass and produce their own shell casings, a much more expensive and wasteful proposition.

time to hit Wal-Mart and stock up on shells gents...
I don’t know about all of America, but for me and my friends and family, we are aware and taking appropriate actions personally. I only hope we can gather and do things nationally.
It must be done.
I thought this idea of destroying spent shell casings made the rounds this week but crashed and burned on Friday ...
I tried, they were OUT!
They aren't! I have written on my newspaper's forum, backing myself up with many url links of info. It's like writing at D.U..
They refute everything with lies. My town happens to be mostly conservative too. The rabid ones are on the forum, lol.
Don't forget about us ladies. We've got to stock up too. ;o)
Obama is a despot who fears the people.
It’s important to know what has happened just recently.....
This has already been dealt with. The DoD has already rescinded this program to shred used brass.
THIS ORDER HAS BEEN RESCINDED. The DOD got a ton of calls and emails and rescinded the order on March 17th. Details here...
But you should still stock up on ammo!
*but the gun owners who voted for Barack Obama believing he respected Second Amendment*
and those who sat at home election day or voted third party facilitating Obama’s victory
My orginal 1763 Charleville flintlock musket is in working condition
Ready to drill very large holes in the enemy - again
Neat antique. You may need it in Galt’s Gulch.
I am proud to inform all of you: I have just rejoined the NRA! I was a member years ago and have always known that I should rejoin. I feel very good. I joined with my first SS check!
It is 1 of the 25,000 muskets that Thomas Jefferson got from the French
That huge caliber rips off an arm at 100 yards
You are only the second person I know to have a Charleville! I had totally forgotten until now. The other was a guy from Maine. He was a machinist and a gunsmith. I actually held it! WOW!
I ended a friendship over this election with one of the people he describes. He was somebody I taught to shoot, handload, and detail strip 1911’s and S&W revolvers. He was one of those “conservatives” who had so much animus for McCain that he voted for Obama. I told him I could forgive voting for the Workers World, or Green Party if he was so ticked-off, but not the Democrats. I’ll never again speak to or have anything to do with him again. No friend would ever have me live under that Marxist bastard. No decent human being would do that to this country.
