Skip to comments.Napolitano: Watch for Obama to ban ammo by EO through EPA action
Posted on 02/12/2013 11:33:51 AM PST by pabianice
Judge Napolitano on Fox: Watch for Obama in his SOTU message tonight to indicate he "can't wait" for Congress to act and thus will use EOs to circumvent the law. He will likely order the EPA to tax ammunition to pay for "the environmental damage and clean-up." In general, he believes Obama will bury Congress in a siege of EOs, knowing that Congress will not stop him. Only Congress can levy taxes, so this sets-up a fight between Obama and the so far eunich House, a fight he wants.
That’s the exact method I thought he would use.
It makes sese when you think of it.
First the Government buys up all the ammo , then they stop more from being produced.
Soon there will be a black market ammunition business rolling in.
Sic semper tyrannus.
Stop him via court action...
JUST IMPEACH HIM NOW!
(....quite possibly save time)
Article 1 - The Legislative Branch
Section 7 - Revenue Bills, Legislative Process, Presidential Veto
All bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.
He sure is acting like a dick
NRA should stage a march on DC either in Mrch or April for all freedom loving pro 2nd amendment patriots.
Prediction: If attempted, the blow-back will make Dorner look like a piker.
a fight he wants....
He will have it. Keep hitting that hornet’s nest see what happens.
Yup. The EPA.
Lead causes cancer in ducks/peasant...excuse me,,,pheasants, ergo bullets must be banned.
Between Django and Dorner,
I think a certain segment of our society is getting
0bama seems to want to start Civil War V2.0.
that is why all the different departments are putting out bis for millions of rounds of ammo....they will be on the books for existing contracts? Or is are they an attempt to suck up all the available inventory?
Discussion concludes that Obama is going Full Stalin now that he doesn't have to fool any voters anymore. Standby for a deluge of unlawful executive orders allowing him to rule as a dictator. He knows the gutless House doesn't have the nerve to oppose him. We live in interesting times. To all us frogs, does the water seem to be getting a little warmer?
I keep seeing stuff like this and tattletale bullets. It’s not that difficult to manufacture ammunition — you can do it in your basement. All the president is doing is motivating an already motivated group to accelerate their self-sufficiency. It’s as if the left cannot see far enough ahead to anticipate reaction.
Dictators know no limits to their power. Narcissistic dictators are the most dangerous...but I repeat myself.
April 19 would be good.
You have a way with words! (-:
Seems to? Ya think?
Remember that it is a leftist’s wet dream to use the power of the state to murder those that resist them.
(Placing Tin Foil Hat squarely on head..... Ahem!)
Does this explain the orders for > 1 billion rounds of ammo for the DHS, because they can lock up all ammo manufacture for a year or two so even re-loaders can’t get bullets?
Not a problem if you have Roberts in your pocket.
But he won’t ban ammo. He’ll just tax it out of manufacture. Roberts has already ruled that the government can tax you into obeying ObamaCare; why not into obeying AmmoCare?
You’re correct, of course.
Taxing is far more beneficial to the govt.
Just like tobacco policy.

All I know is that Romney would have done the same or worse! /< sarcasm>
a power he does not have
“...lead causes cancer in pheasants....”
Please, cite your source for this claim. Or did I miss the sarcasm tag?
Did our Forefathers intend for us the right to bear UNLOADED arms? I don’t think so. I sure hope the Judge is wrong on this one. IMPEACH OBAMA FOUR YEARS AGO!
I read something affirming that in the past few weeks myself.
All the LIVs are probably unaware of this but...
the issue of restricting ammo has already been judicially addressed and ruled to be a defacto ban on firearms and therefore in violation of the 2nd amendment.
Of course, they don’t really care about that, either.
Paging Ted Nugent. You MUST say something at the SOTU speech, Ted. Do it.
time to stop investing in guns and start investing in re-loading equipment, smelting equipment, and used car batteries (source of lead)....
It certainly does look that way.
Watching things fall apart a lot more quickly than I had ever imagined.
The real satan did not come out after the election...it has always been there for those who chose to see it.
This guy was a shove or two within going over the edge a few times over the past year especially. Unfortunately the gutless wonders in the Congress never pushed his levers to the brink. Statemanship and courtsey prevailed over being direct and confrontational. Rather than go on and call the bastard a liar, creep and POS, they called him Mr. President and deferred to his demeanor. When he virtually unclothed, in a leterary fashion, Paul Ryan, no one said mumm about how he did that. Anyway, they made our bed and we now have to lay in it.
[ I may be mistaken(don’t tell my wife), but I do believe the USSC has determined that ammo is a integral component of a firearm and are covered under the 2nd Amendment ]
They would just put the fines on ALL of the LEAD ammo and tell us that only approved by the EPA as lead free would be exempt...
They would also declare steel shot as a pollutant as well as powder residue and gas and that would be enouggh to kill the entire bullet market with crazy fees...
Plastic shell and holder thingie - contains BPA - pollutant
Lead shot - contains lead - pollutant
Steel shot - contains iron which can damage environmentally sensitive areas - pollutant
Gunpowder - contains nitates - pollutant
Brass casing - contains zinc - pollutant
Primer - Materials in primer - pollutant
Good luck everyone
I don’t see how this would pass constitutional muster any more than an Executive Order baning guns. Bullets are an essential component to guns and without them guns are little more than poor cudgels, so they should be protected by the 2nd amendment equally. Or to put it in perspective, it would be as if a president in the 1800s tried to circumvent the constitutionally guaranteed freedom of the press by banning the printing press.
They don’t give a crap about the 2nd amend, they will try any weasel way they can to screw it over if not by outright ban, but by auxillary means.
Remeber these are the people who LIVE by the motto: The End Justify the MEANS!
LOL! Obama knows the GOP won't do it and that the media will protect him if they even try it.
2) Racist Vendetta against 'whites'
4) The supremacy of the mohammedan death cult
6) Complete subjugation of all people to the All Encompassing State
8) Theft of all wealth on behalf of his cronies
Yeah, they’ve figured out that they can’t touch the guns, but can still get the desired effects by going after the ammunition. I think this is the real reason behind all the huge federal ammunition purchases...to both drive up prices and ultimately dry up the ammo markets.
I think he does.
I am not sure he will get it, but he just might.
What about all that crap that is naturally occuring in the environment? Except for plastics everything else can be found in large amounts just about everywhere.
