The President of the United States Took the Oath of Office, but does anyone really know what is stated? Under Article 2 Section 1 paragraph 8 of the Constitution of the United States the President’s Oath of Office goes as follows;
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States”
According to this “pledge”, “Oath”, or whatever one wishes to call it we can see very clear that the President Swears, or affirms that he will by the Oath of Office he took, “…preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Well low and behold, Obama has gone off the rach on this by even considering any sort of law AGAINST the Second Amendment! Yet here we are just days into 2013 with Obama now beginning a hard push for “Gun Control”! Here it Has to be mentioned that we have a Second Amendment which clearly states;
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
This is brief and to the point just like the founders of this nation wanted it to be. Yet, there are people today that cannot see the forest for the trees in front of them. These people are going to the forefront now and saying that we need more gun control. If any of the Jewish people that had lived during the Nazi’s rise to power in Germany, they would be shaking in their boots right about now because the same thing happened in their country. We should state that we do not believe that our President will go as far as taking guns away from law abiding Citizens at this point. However, we should be prepared since some of the ideas about gun control that come from the President’s office now seem to indicate not just a background check for purchases, but that he also wants to have all the guns registered. To register a gun will become more expensive than most people could afford, making gun ownership nearly impossible, even for hunting. Than the next step will begin, the confiscation of guns. Don’t say this will not happen, it was done after Katrina in New Orleans. At that point only the criminals and the military had guns and the military shot some of them dead!
Yes the mass killings were bad and should never have happened, but take a look at them and find out why they happened. Don’t blame the results until you find out the problem! The problem in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut were the signs posted in front of both places. You see them all the time. They stand right out and bite you. They are simple little signs, but ones that allow criminals to “choose and pick” their targets. The signs read, “This is a Gun Free Zone.” Well, in both cases, the individuals bypassed places that did not have those signs up and instead sought out places where the signs were visible. Yes, they advertised where they had no guns, making easy targets of those within the buildings, and in both cases the individuals either entered an Exit door or broke into the building.
The founders of this nation placed the Second Amendment into the Constitution so as to allow the Citizens to “bring up arms” to a government that has become tyrannical in nature. With this very idea in mind, let us take a look at a recent Supreme Court ruling on gun control and the Second Amendment.
In United States v. Miller, the Court sustained a statute requiring registration under the National Firearms Act of sawed–off-shotguns. After reciting the original provisions of the Constitution dealing with the militia, the Court observed that “[w]ith obvious purpose to assure the continuation and render possible the effectiveness of such forces the declaration and guarantee of the Second Amendment were made. It must be interpreted with that end in view.” The significance of the militia, the Court continued, was that it was composed of “civilians primarily, soldiers on occasion.” It was upon this force that the States could rely for defense and securing of the laws, on a force that “comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense,” who, “when called for service . . . were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time.” Therefore, “[i]n the absence of any evidence tending to show that possession or use of a ‘shotgun having a barrel of less than 18 inches in length’ at this time has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well– regulated militia, we cannot say that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear such an instrument. Certainly it is not within judicial notice that this weapon is any part of the ordinary military equipment or that its use could contribute to the common defense.”
Here we can see the Supreme Court stating that any able bodied Citizen can obtain and own military equipment, but in the Obama Marxist/Socialist world, along with other Socialist types, this cannot be since it would mean they have to obey the law for fear of the people, when they want the people to fear them. We have checked the State laws on the ownership of guns and should the Federal Government make an attempt to, as stated in the Second Amendment, “infringe” upon the state laws, the Federal Government would be overstepping their Constitutional right to do so since any law, according to our Constitution, which is not specifically given to the Federal Government, is regulated to the States. We must state that there are other Supreme Court rulings which flop all around the Second Amendment, but none of them specifically state that the Federal Government has total control over guns.
Forty-four states have some sort of law which preserves the right to keep and bear arms. The six states that have limited or no rights to bear arms are: California, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Iowa. The other 44 have all sorts of rights to own guns or bear arms, with Louisiana being the most gun owner friendly state in the union.
Louisiana Constitution Article I, Section 11
The right of each citizen to keep and bear arms shall not be abridged, but this provision shall not prevent the passage of laws to prohibit the carrying of weapons concealed on the person.
CONST 1 11
§11. Right to Keep and Bear Arms
Section 11. The right of each citizen to keep and bear arms is fundamental and shall not be infringed. Any restriction on this right shall be subject to strict scrutiny.
Acts 2012, No. 874, §1, approved Nov. 6, 2012, eff. Dec. 10, 2012.
Recently, there has been a discussion on a radio show that has gone viral. It is a radio show which should instill fear into the hearts of every United States Citizen especially after listening to the clips below. These clips tell how our Federal Government is in the planning stages for complete Martial law, giving no Constitutional rights to anyone and from what the police officer states, they may even shoot you on the spot should you resist! Now this seems to be an extreme case of possible paranoia, but if this has just a sliver of truth to it, we are headed down the same road Nazi Germany went in 1938 with their total gun control laws. The clips are linked below. You check them out and see what you think.
Now we have to warn you, these sites discuss just what the government is planning and what they intend to do. Here is the problem, it seems this may hold some validity to it due to the amount of ammunition some of the Federal Agencies are buying. The list of agencies and amount of ammunition they bought is below with the site from where this information has come.
President Obama has stated before that he would like to ban all guns. How do we know this? Take a look.
Assault weapons bans and overall gun bans
In 1996, State Senate hopeful Obama filled out a questionnaire from a Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois. He gave these responses:
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.
Despite the fact that his campaign said Obama did not fill out the questionnaires–a staffer did–and that he may have jotted some notes on the front page of the questionnaire, Factcheck.org has found that the writing on the form was that of Obama’s.
In July of 1998, Obama supported the following goals on the State Legislative National Political Awareness test:
· Ban the sale or transfer of all forms of semi-automatic weapons.
· Increase state restrictions on the purchase and possession of firearms.
· Require manufacturers to provide child-safety locks with firearms
In October 2000, State Senator Obama co-sponsored legislation in the Illinois Senate to limit handgun purchases to one per month. The legislation did not pass.
While debating Mr. Alan Keyes during the Illinois Senate campaign in 2004, State Senator Obama described the fact that President Bush did not re-institute an assault weapons ban as a scandal.
“Let’s be honest. Mr. Keyes does not believe in common gun control measures like the assault weapons bill. Mr. Keyes does not believe in any limits from what I can tell with respect to the possession of guns, including assault weapons that have only one purpose, to kill people. I think it is a scandal that this president did not authorize a renewal of the assault weapons ban.”
Here is proof that Obama has once again lied to the people when he stated in his 2008 campaign, “I will not take your guns away.” We have to wonder just how many times Obama will lie to the people before they wake up and see this?
I’ll reference an article by Paul Joseph Watson. It is about how the Department of Homeland Security has gone out and bought up 1.7 million rounds ammunition for various types of guns, not all associated with Homeland Security, if we take a brief minute here to look back at 1938 Nazi Germany, we also hear of a Department called, “Homeland Security” strange to say the least.
“Although the Associated Press and other media outlets dismissed concerns over the federal government purchasing large quantities of ammunition as paranoia, the fact that the DHS is preparing for civil unrest cannot be denied.
Having recently acquired riot gear, the DHS also purchased a number of bullet-proof checkpoint booths that include ‘stop and go’ lights.
Last year, Department of Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano directed ICE to prepare for a mass influx of immigrants into the United States, calling for the plan to deal with the “shelter” and “processing” of large numbers of people.
The U.S. Army has also been preparing for domestic disorder.
A recently leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.
On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a, “Warning shot will not be fired.”
The manual includes lists of weapons to be used against “rioters” or “demonstrators,” including “antiriot grenades.” It also advises troops to carry their guns in the “safe port arms” stance, a psychological tactic aimed at “making a show of force before rioters.” Non-lethal weapons and water cannons are also included.”
Now this should scare the pants off people, but remember, the Constitution speaks of, “We The People,” not we the government! It has to be noted that nearly every part of the Obama Administration has sought out ammunition including Social Security, National Weather Service, and other Federal Agencies. Is our nation on the verge of being taken over for the sake of the few? Is our nation about to become a puppet of the World? Now the most important question here is, will “We The People” allow this to happen under our very noses, using the shadow of gun control as a forefront to a tyrannical government? It is up to, us and if we sit down and just say that will never happen, we will be just like the Jewish people of 1938, lined up and shot because we sat back and did not pay attention!Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
