John Williams: Great gun-grab scam


Great gun-grab scam

To the editor:

Also known as H.R. 45 (Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009) this was introduced by Rep Bobby Rush, a Democrat from Illinois. All gun owners should be very angry about this, as it will affect all handguns and rifles with removable magazines. If the Democrat-controlled administration can get this through, they will be after the rest of the guns.

Make no mistake, if this gets to the president, he will jump at the chance to sign it.

This administration has the worst record ever when it comes to our Second Amendment rights. This administration will wage war on our Second Amendment rights.

If you are not a gun owner, you should be terrified as well. This is a blatant shot at the destruction of the Constitution. Our civil rights and liberties have been slowly eroding during the years and at a much faster rate since 9/11.

The passage of this bill would be a major blow.

The intent of H.R. 45 is to make it too much trouble to comply with the rules (there is a test by the way) or make you an instant criminal if you do not.

Consider that you will have to have a license and pay a fee set by the U.S. Attorney General. It will start cheap, but once they have your information, then he can set the fee at whatever he chooses.

Keep in mind this bypasses your congressmen and senators; this decision is left to one man who can be under a lot of pressure from the president. You will have to renew this license every five years, you will have to notify the AG if you move, and you will have to notify the AG almost immediately if your gun is lost or stolen. You will have to provide, at minimum, a thumbprint and any and all mental health records.

All of these provisions can be changed at the whim of the AG's office. Registration is the first step towards confiscation.

For you "pry the guns from your cold, dead fingers" people, it is less messy and painful to write or call your representatives. Do it soon. Tell them no amendments or compromises. They need to kill the bill totally. If they get swamped on this issue, they will have no choice but to act as needed.

Make it clear that you will be following this bill and their actions on it.

You also may want to use the links below to check out H.J. Res. 5. This is an attempt to repeal the 22nd article of amendment to the constitution, Removing the law that lets the president serve only two terms.

Can you spell dictator?

Well I did say back in the fall that I would be the first to support this administration if they did not move too far to the left. I cannot and will not support this president or this congress. We are moving down the road of socialism so fast my head is spinning. I really did think that it would be a slow move if it happened, but I was wrong. Mr. Williams whether you know it or not, the office of "homeland security" has just labeled you a "radical right wing extremist". I base this conclusion on the office of home land security's report, just released yesterday, April 14th 2009. By the way this report was distributed on April 7th 2009 to police and law enforcement all over the U.S. here is the definition they use; The report from DHS' Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines right-wing extremism in the U.S. as "divided into those groups, movements and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups) and those that are mainly anti-government, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration." But Mr. Williams you are not alone, the governor of Texas is with you. Here is a quote from him on the subject yesterday "I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion in the lives of our citizens, and it interference with the affairs of our state," Gov. Perry said. As of the date of this report and its release to law enforcement agencies, any American who believes in states' rights and that the federal government is to big, has been labeled a "right wing extremist" by this administration. All of you please note this definition has nothing to do with being a republican or democrat. The "Great Gun Grab" is only part of the beginning, as this democracy becomes a dictatorship, while those who believe in the Constitution of the United States of America, are labeled "right wing extremist".

Hey guys! Your Tin Foil is drooping! How ridiculous!

Maybe you can relax once Rush Limbaugh is your President! (snicker)

The way that the Obama administration thanks the brave young men & women who risk their live to protect & and defend the US and its Constitution in to put them on the terrorist watch list as well. Maybe that's because they are afraid that they WILL continue to protect the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic

In reference to Sumarjn's comment, that is probably what the people in Poland thought about Adolph Hilter, just before their country was overrun. People always sound an alert, before bad things happen, you evidently do not read History, and are not listening. Inaction of a populous to do nothing is the same as agreeing with the action, or path someone is taking us. You are in a car the person driving is drunk, is it funny before he has a wreck and kills someone, or do you ask him to stop and get out, you would evidently laugh and do nothing, Whose tin foil is drooping. I for one believe in the Constitution that the President swore an oath to defend. I believe he, (President Obama), would be opposed to any action or bill, that would destroy the Constitution. President Obama can not interpret the Constitution but only defend it. I do find it unique that the DHS has people on a watch list that believe in the Constitution. Well lets hope President Obama does defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic, and our Constitution, to do less would not be Presidential. by the way I am OPPOSED to HB-45, HR 157, HR 665, H.J.Res 5., H.J.Res11,opposed to the adding of district seats to D. C. and I am FOR THESE, HR17, HR197, and Thank you one and all Big A

Hey all, the united states issued a health warning yesterday over the swine flu. We have embargos on our exports already today. So does Canada. Be careful and buy a mask and get informed and stay frosty.

Just thought I'd mention it since the paper didn't and what you don't know can hurt you. This has been news for past 48 hours.


Really 7 years, 12 months ago

I am WAY more worried about the swine flu than I am about Obama's ruining the country.


Tom Soos 7 years, 12 months ago

There is a pill you can take for Swine Flu Too bad its not that easy to fix the other.
