Obama Begins Covert Attack on Second Amendment
Canada Free Press ^ | 9 May, 2010 | Joel McDurmon

Obama has apparently taken a step to disarm America, according to a document that has been leaked. The step is strategic and very cunning: begin with the military.

The document reveals a proposal to force all military personnel to register all firearms—even privately owned firearms that are kept in their private residences. It would force a regular inventory of all such firearms concurrent with the regular inventories of military weapons.

Soldiers maintaining privately owned firearms in their private residences, off base, would be required to keep their weapons in locked containers or with trigger locks, unloaded, and have the ammunition secured separately from the weapon in a locked container.

Very nasty, if true. Take away soldiers right to defense in their own homes. Take away their 4th amendment rights in their own homes.

The trouble is, it is very hard to fight this in the courts.

This b - - t - - d took an oath in front of millions to
“support, protect, and defend” . . .
He is violating this oath on a regular basis and should be impeached!!

Yep, which is why he wants his own "civilian army" that's better funded and more powerful than our American military.

My advice, don’t register, keep guns at someone else’s house.

And the penalty is? How will it be enforced? Refusing to obey an unlawful order is not a crime - only the one who issues an unlawful order is guilty.

Come to think about it, all orders the Kenyan issues are unlawful.

Every gun my son owns I bought. I’d say I’ll be the first to be asked and like all my guns....they were lost at sea.

This story is probably based on last year’s incident at Fort Campbell:

The implication is that soldiers who are qualified to defend this country from foreign enemies, aren’t qualified to keep a weapon at home or to carry it on base. Amazing what the Muslims can cause to happen.

If I were still on Active Duty and told that I had to declare how much of anything I had inside of my private home I'd tell whomever was asking to mind their own damned business.

Something like this can only work if people cooperate with it, and if you are a gun owner you would be an idiot to go along quietly with something like this.

Yep. I’d keep the ammo there, too, just in case this worthless Kenyan squatter in the White Hut tries make people register their bullets as well.

My most fervent prayer is that conservatives take back the US House and Senate and begin impeachment proceedings against this S.O.B. in January, 2011.

I’ve seen other reports of this. They tried to do the same thing when I was in the military though.

The military is concerned about the suicide rate from what I understand.

Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t see how the military can control what a soldier owns, or how they store it, if it’s off post in their own private residence.

If anything, they could just “give” the firearms to family members. But I doubt the military would really try to do this. Talk about discouraging enlistment.
