Will Temporarily Reprieved Young (Currently) Illegal Immigrants Have Gun Rights?
The Truth About Guns ^ | 18 June, 2012 | Rober Farago

Posted on 06/18/2012 9:08:39 AM PDT by marktwain

“Obama announced a temporary, two-year reprieve for young immigrants who came to this country before age 16, who have lived here at least five years and who have clean records,” bostonherald.com reports. “The reprieve, which is renewable—” Wait. A renewable temporary reprieve? Anyone remember the executive order establishing the unconstitutional long gun registry for 8500 border state-dwelling gun dealers? Emergency > temporary > pilot > automatically renewed > you can’t kill it with a lawsuit. Under Emperor Obama’s unconstitutional edict, the newly reprieved illegals will not be citizens nor on a path to citizenship (nudge nudge wink wink). But will they have gun rights? If they get a U.S. alien or admission number they can get a driver’s license and, thus, buy a gun. Is this a problem? And what happens to their guns and gun rights when the reprieve expires, theoretically speaking?

Oh, they’ll have EVERY right that any US Citizen has, without any of the taxpaying hassles.

They’ll have rights to a tax-payer funded education, rights to welfare benefits, probably free in-state tuition, free help for anything and everything they need.

Because, sadly, they were brought here through “no fault of their own.” And, they’re so talented.

“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

If they are “people” then they have the right to keep and bear arms.

They should have NO access to government handouts or jobs if they have not registered for selective service.

Then again, our current president...

DHS will begin handing out two-year renewable work permits to illegal aliens.

Halfway through the second renewal = 5 years in-country on a legal permit.

That invokes automatic eligibility to apply for citizenship.

And that IS amnesty.

Ahhh What the Hell.

If Obama hadn;t done it Romney would have.
Or it would have passed in that phony PC club we call a Congress.

You don’t believe me?

Let me ask this. Have you heard a great hue and cry over it?
Have you heard any crying lately over his appointing recess appointements when there was no recess? Have you heard any cicious attacks over Obama using the EPA to enforce the Carbon credit act he couldn’t get thru the Congress? Have you heard any crying lately over not allowing drilling permits offshore?

We don’t have a Government, of the people, by the people and for the people any longer.We now have a government of special entitlements for special voters.Pass out the money to Unions, Big Business like GM who produced 70% of their vehicles outside the US last year,special Green interests and entitlement voters.

This isn’t the United States planned by the founders, this is a criminal organisation operating out of Capitol hill and calling themselves Democrats and Republicans.

They don’t need gun rights.....as a matter of fact they don’t need any “stinking laws” at all.

They were raised in the wonderful Mexican culture of lawlessness and corruption and don’t obey laws anyway. Why should they, their parents don’t either!

They are not part of "THE people"!!!

They are CRIMINAL INVADERS. The only "right" they have here is to have their @$$3$ kicked out of our country.

They are not “the people”, as in the people of a free state.

They'll also become part of the "protected classes," i.e., move to the front of the job line.

Unfortunately, because of gross neglect by the political class of both parties, that cancer metastasized to inoperability years ago. Having their a**es kicked out the country simply isn't going to happen.

That's right ~ and they also have the right to be called out with the militia ~ which could be anything from being a civilian hostage tied to a military target (to discourage the enemy from bombing it) to putting out a fire to filling sand bags to....... well, they're just all sorts of things.

Your typical illegal is told none of these things before his arrival.

You must have simply misunderstood. They are only work permits, not work demands.

Not a thing in there about actually having to have a job to get the two years.

And then another two years.

And then halfway through the third renewal presto, they can apply for citizenship.

And not a word about having to actually BE employed.

Yes, you are right. They are great “talented” artists. You can see their work on rail cars, fences and on the sides of buildings.

Maybe they can “tag” the white house for Obama with their gang signs too.

I would not be surprised if Obama had plans to arm all of his new private army, and to hand out the brown shirts for uniforms.

Other than the illegal aspects of this, just what percentage of these persons now will support Obama?

Myself I seriously doubt he will gain any decisive votes out of this.
