Skip to comments.NRA ad: Obama gun proposals would lead to ‘confiscation’

The National Rifle Association (NRA) pushed back against President Obamas calls for gun control in his State of the Union address, arguing the proposals would lead to confiscation of citizens firearms.
A new Web video released Tuesday night from the nations largest gun lobby sought to rebuff the presidents impassioned call for lawmakers to vote on a package of measures including bans on the sale of assault weapons, high-capacity clips and instituting mandatory background checks.
President Obama gives a good speech and when you listen him talk about new gun laws, you may think he sounds reasonable, says NRA executive director Chris Cox. But what happens when you look at the details behind the presidents policies? How would they actually work? The NRA ad quotes a memo from the Department of Justice saying an assault weapons ban would only work in conjunction with a mandatory gun buyback program.
This internal Justice Department memo says an assault weapons ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence. Unlikely, that is, unless it comes with something else, Cox continues. Obamas experts say that a gun ban, like the one being debated right now in Congress, will not work without mandatory gun buybacks. Mandatory gun buyback thats government confiscation of legal firearms owned by honest citizens.
Obama on Tuesday amplified his calls for Congress to take up the proposed measures, as he called attention to a number of victims of gun violence invited as guests in the House chamber. Obama said the gun measures he has proposed deserve a vote and said lawmakers owed it to the victims to move on the issue...

Don’t let up.
The Agenda 21 Marxists smell blood in the water. We must preserve our rights at all hazards.
Don’t let up.
And that's the least of it. It doesn't take a genius to see there is a very great likelihood it would lead to bloodshed on a massive scale, pushing many formerly law-abiding Americans who have never gotten so much as a speeding ticket in their entire boring lives, completely over the edge into desperado territory.
And for what? An unjust punitive measure that has been erroneously aimed directly at them, that is blatantly unconstitutional, and has absolutely no hope of reducing gun violence whatsoever but, in fact, will increase it.
Did you see where the family of the gangbanger who killed Hadiya Pendleton has come out saying that he was a good boy, a loving father, turning his life around, honna stoo-int, the usual? These anti-2A bills are aimed at one group-the group with the least amount of violent crime in this nation, the group most likely to have followed the law all along in registering their weapons, getting permits, etc. They can’t crack down on this group because of all the crime we commit, so they will make us outlaws through unconstitutional laws when we decide enough’s enough and choose to not give them the means to confiscate our weapons though paper trails. Let’s see how they praise civil disobedience tactics when it’s us practicing it.
It seems to me that the better argument to make is this: If we allow the government to FURTHER infringe on the Second Amendment where does their ability to strip us of our rights end? Which Amendment will be next? Free Speech? States rights? The slope gets very slippery when gun grabbers target one right but feel safe that the others won’t be targeted. Just remember, it is the Second that protects the rest.
All of the worst evils in the world have been committed by bad governments. All of them.
It's more than that.
The right to Life is inalienable.
Your defense against it being taken from you is your choice to own firearms. To force you to lose your firearms is to go against an inalienable right, and against a right bestowed by the Creator.
The 2A is merely the manifestation of this right on paper.
If anyone decides to join the NRA, which I encourage everyone to do, use a fake e-mail address unless you want to get spammed to death for things like hearing aids and insurance policies.
They disable the “opt out” link at the bottom of their spam which really pisses me off. They can carry on their work protecting our 2nd amendment rights, but they should do it without spamming their members.
“We must preserve our rights at all hazards.”
Yup. Count me in. I’m 62, a veteran, and a cancer survivor. For some reason, I’m not quaking in my boots over the threats from these pukes. If they want to dance, then I’l pick the music.

That’s a fact.
Yeah, sure. Funny how every single citizen of every Nazi-occupied country turned out to be a heroic member of the resistance when the war ended.
Firearms have been a part of American life for three hundred years, yet it’s only been in the past twenty or thirty years that they’ve become an issue.
That is precisely because the society and its people have degenerated to the point where firearms crime has proliferated; fix society, don’t scr*w around with the firearms.
That’s the essence of the solution, and it’s precisely what the Democrats - who have f*cked up our society with their half-arsed programs - don’t want to address.
Instead, they play all this smoke and mirrors with the firearms.
It’s all a monstrous load of bullsh*t, the whole effing thing.
