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.
Read the rest at Publiusforum.com...
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.
Sounds very special.
The arm ripping sounds gruesome, were you there.........?? heh.
Walmart has been sold out for weeks.
Well, dag nabbit, Dev! You’re the fella I want on our side!
It is one of the very few circa 1700’s smoothbore flintlocks not converted to percussion for the Civil War
My circa 1898 .44-40 7-1/2” Colt hogleg is my most modern firearm
How does it stack up to .45 LC?
‘98 big frames are safe with smokeless
Colt says about ‘06
I don’t go from hotloads as that model, caliber, finish, and size Colt is worth a good deal
I have always been very accurate firing as I draw before even viewing the sights
The only mods were polishing up the internal machining and some trigger and spring changes - I keep original 3-G spares
I also have a Model-1859 backstrap and TG and one-piece grips with CW SN#s that are very close to my SAA 177-— numbers
That policy has been canceled thank God.
I received an email a couple of days ago from Georgia Arms saying they were notified by a Department of Defense official that the DOD's practice of selling large amounts of fired brass to GA Arms for reloading it's popular "Canned Heat" brand of reloaded ammo has been reinstated, and GA Arms' suspended order of fired brass is being shipped. The email credited and thanked the thousands of their customers and others who protested to their Congressman and Senators about the cancellation of the long standing practice of auctioning off fired brass to commercial reloaders.
The Magic Kenyan will no doubt soon come up with another and better camouflaged scheme to limit and eventually cut off the ammunition supply to gun-owning Americans, but at least this one outrage was made public and the public reacted exactly as it should have. A major part of the price for keeping our 2nd Amendment rights is constant vigilance, because "O" will never let up as long as he has the power to keep trying.
There you go "O" ... you're a weapons mfg. best/most efficient marketing machine.
I am glad to hear they changed it. Thanks for those that let me know.
I feel exactly the same way. I don't have any close friends or relatives who voted for Kenya's favorite son, but my wife's formerly close friend did because she didn't like Sarah Palin for some sillyass reason she can't explain. Her husband is a millionaire several times over and they complain bitterly about taxes all the time, yet she voted for more and higher taxes. Her husband didn't like it any more than I do, but he has to live with her and I don't.
She and my wife aren't as close friends as they were before, and I can hardly stand to even be coldly polite to her when I have to be in her company. The only reason I can tolerate her at all is that she's not the sharpest crayon in the box by a very long shot and really shouldn't even be allowed to vote. She was once a public school teacher before marrying a well to do husband so you don't have to guess what her political views are.
My wife was once a public school teacher too. 3 different districts, 3 elementary grades plus middle school math, and substituting at the high school level. Now she's not only a professor of education, she's the chair of the, admittedly small, department.
She didn't like McCain, but voted for him anyway, in an attempt to save our Grandchildren from what we knew, then and know even better now, The Messiah would do to them.
So watch where you swing that broad brush.
So, are you coming to the 4th Annual Texas Cowboy Memorial Shoot: October 17th, 2009 ~ Seagoville, TX?
Assuming all gatherings of more than 2 gunowners aren't declared illegal militia assemblies by that time... and even if they are, come to think of it.
By the way, the Full Auto Ban Amendment to the 1986 Firearms Owners Protection Act never REALLY passed! It was just on a voice vote, and the Nays WAY outweighed the Yeas on the Amendments adoption ballot! I heard it! Tip ONeal just PROCLAIMED that it passed, to the GASPS of many in attendence, and the minority Repubs could not challenge him because of the parlimentary rules in effect at the time! HONEST! History!
