Oppose Joe Manchin's Veterans Gun Ban and National Gun Registry
Gun Owners ^ | Feb 6, 2013 | Gun Owners Staff

Posted on 02/06/2013 2:11:28 PM PST by EXCH54FE

Reports out of Capitol Hill reveal that just-reelected turncoat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin is about to stick a big knife in the back of American gun owners. And to make matters worse, he's lying about what he’s doing.

Both Manchin and House anti-gun crazy Carolyn McCarthy are claiming to be “working with NRA” to enact gun bans and national gun registries. NRA says flatly that Manchin is lying, and we believe he is. (The Hill, 1/24/13)

Ironically, Manchin was the “gun owner's best friend” on November 5 -- the day before his reelection to a six-year term let him to pull a great big “gotcha” on those West Virginians who were tricked into believing his representations.

But make no mistake about it: Joe Manchin’s draft would impose a gun ban on veterans and would set up the framework for a national gun registry.

150,000 honest law-abiding veterans are currently in the NICS system. They didn’t do anything wrong; they honorably served their country. But when they sought VA counseling for a traumatic combat experience, the VA appointed a fiduciary to oversee their fiscal affairs and then took away their guns. And, again, there are 150,000 honest veterans in the system.

New York Senator Charles Schumer viciously fought a Coburn amendment on the DoD bill which would require that veterans get their day in court before their rights were taken away from them, and he won.

What the Manchin bill is about is insuring that “bad guys” like veterans can’t get guns. And, under Barack Obama's “Executive Action #1,” the NICS list could soon include tens of millions of additional soldiers, police, firemen, and other law-abiding Americans

“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed and that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property, and freedom of press.” Thomas Jefferson

MOLON LABE!!!

As Rush says...Follow the money. There’s a huge FBI data facility in WV. More gun registration means more $$$ for WV.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.” Oath of office for newly-elected and re-elected Senators

He has sworn a false oath; he has betrayed his country; he is a liar. Anything this POS does must be viewed through that prism. Everything he does is invalid and not to be obeyed.

It's not about criminals or their crimes like they claim. It never was. It's about ultimate power. It's about unlimited political power and nothing more. To the power hungry politicians, the vets are the most dangerous. They'll fight back to protect this country, because they've already done it once before.
ANY politician who remotely discusses making it harder for law abiding citizens to protect themselves is NOT working in the peoples best interest. He/she is working in their own power hungry SELF interest. If they were doing it to protect us, they'd suggest everyone be armed, because a criminal or rouge element wouldn't dare take a chance against an armed citizen. There would be "a weapon behind every blade of grass."

Ostracize him. Refuse to sell him or his family food, water, clothing and gas.

Police have received exemptions in similar, previous legislation. There's still a large police lobby for gun control.
