Barrack Obama, the so called Constitutional scholar has began crafting a new executive order. One to bypass congress and the US Constitution.
The statement reinforces an article in the Huffington Post describing how the administration is exploring ways to bypass Congress and enact gun control through executive action.
The Department of Justice reportedly is holding meetings discussing the White House’s options for enacting regulations on its own or through adjoining agencies and departments. “Administration officials said talk of executive orders or agency action are among a host of options that President Barack Obama and his advisers are considering. “
Anyone remember Obama’s comments about Americans who were bitter and clinging to their guns and bibles? Yea, pretty much sums up Obama’s position of the Second Amendment.
Obama was being misleading when he denied that his handwriting had been on a document endorsing a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois. Obama responded, “No, my writing wasn’t on that particular questionnaire. As I said, I have never favored an all-out ban on handguns.”
Actually, Obama’s writing was on the 1996 document, which was filed when Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. A Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois, had this question, and Obama took hard line:
35. Do you support state legislation to:
a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes.
b. ban assault weapons? Yes.
c. mandatory waiting periods and background checks? Yes.
Obama has spent a great deal of time and energy ensuring that it is difficult to connect him to anything he has actually done. But even the great and powerful
Oz Obama cannot 100 percent hide from his own record. While apparently the majority of that record consists of voting “present” enough of it does exist to see what his agenda is. On the subject of the Second Amendment this supposed constitutional scholar seems either to be completely ignorant of the indisputably documented intentions of the Founding Fathers on the subject of gun ownership, or he holds personal views that are 100 percent contradictory.
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” — Thomas Jefferson Papers (C.J. Boyd, Ed. 1950)
“They that can give up liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.” -Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania..
“The legitimate powers of government extend to such acts only as they are injurious to others.” -Thomas Jefferson, Notes on the State of Virginia (1781-1785).
“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials.” -George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 425-426.
“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.” -Thomas Jefferson.
“(The Constitution preserves) the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation…(where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” -James Madison.
“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” -Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria.
Barack Hussein Obama has shown through his many actions that he is not and never was a constitutional scholar, furthermore that he has no respect for or feels any obligation to adhere to the US Constitution. To him it is just a flawed document written by old white men for the purposes of oppressing the minorities of the world. An imperfect document as it were, which he clearly intends to perfect.
