Exclusive: Joseph Farah warns, 'Something very bad for America is coming'
(Editors note: The following commentary by Joseph Farah is a hypothetical scenario, but one all-too-believable given the anti-gun hysteria in the media and here in the nations capital. It is offered in the spirit of what former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emmanuel once said: Never let a good crisis go to waste.)
WASHINGTON President Obama today issued a sweeping executive order banning the manufacture, sale and possession of all semi-automatic firearms in the U.S.
Obama cited for his authority for the action a national state of emergency that has been in effect ever since Sept. 11, 2001, and renewed annually by both President George W. Bush and Obama ever since. He also cited portions of the Patriot Act that suspend certain civil rights that remain classified.
The dramatic action by the president follows closely on the heels of the Newtown, Conn., massacre of 27 schoolchildren and teachers by Adam Lanza a week ago.
Gun-control advocates have been pushing for tighter gun control ever since the attack on the Sandy Hook Elementary School, the fourth mass shooting in the U.S. in 2012.
Yet the action was surprising because Obama vowed to present a detailed plan of action in January after naming Vice President Joe Biden to head a blue-ribbon panel including Cabinet members, law enforcement officials and various agencies of the government. Biden convened the first meeting of the panel only yesterday.
Thats how quickly it could happen.
Thats how liberty could be lost in America in one day.
For many, today was the day the world was supposed to end, according to the Mayan calendar and other ancient documents.

LOL! Good luck with that. They'll want to pack a lunch, this might take a while.
But if it comes down to, as Claire Wolfe put it, "shooting the bastards", well, let's just say I ain't planning to turn my guns in.
I’ll go out with a bang...
Ya, they’d be getting in over their heads; but they have been living in fantasy land for too long anyway.
Maybe it’s obama’s radical plan to reduce the size of government. It’s so stupid, it just might work!
Then it won’t be time to bury any, but dig them up if you need to, clean, oil them, and make sure they are working properly...and start stuffing tin boxes...
“Shovel ready jobs...”
It is a common tagline on many different boards, and not just ‘gun boards’, that states:
“when they come to take your guns, give them to them .... ammunition first!”
I believe you will see a sale of all sorts of ‘wheelguns’, and their sort of ammunition.
“Hand a liberal an empty magazine, a revolver, a box of shells for the magazine, and tell them, “to go have some fun!”
I chose to outfit myself in calibers consistent with my adversaries. The way I see it they are there to supply me with an endless supply of ammo.
Your move fascists...
The key here, as always with the left, is not whether they could be successful, but will they think they could be successful?
Wars are started because one side underestimates the resolve of the other and crosses the line. IMO that is what would happen with an EO gun ban. I don’t think they realize the potential consequences of doing that. Which is what makes the situation so dangerous.
If they were at my door at the moment of the announcement, they might have the advantage, due to my temporarily disabling laugh attack.
You’ll turn in your guns, if you’re hungry enough.
Would it be okay if I turned in all my ammo first, one round at a time?
I have always thought the same about the end when satan attacks God. Surely he does not believe he can win?
>> Youll turn in your guns, if youre hungry enough.
How do you envision that they’ll make those of us in the country “hungry enough”?
This won’t happen, but if it DID happen, it would be interesting to see how the Feds would enforce it in (say) Texas. Or Oklahoma. Or North Dakota. Or Wyoming.
The left has a powerful group-think going - they’ve built a consensus around their passion - as if the intensity of beliefs was somehow connected to the truth of those beliefs. We have to learn to talk to them in the irrational ways of their thinking...
"They" have to eat
"They" have to sleep
"They" have to drive around, just like their serfs.
