The Real Gun-Control Consensus
Wall Street Journal, by Kimberley A. Strassel

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/10/2013 8:05:26 PM

The next time you hear a fellow American bemoaning the lack of Washington bipartisanship, tell him to cheer up. There is one issue on which Congress still resoundingly agrees: gun rights. Bear that in mind, too, the next time you read a story about the "new" political debate over gun control. An almost cosmic disconnect has been building in the political sphere since the tragedy of Sandy Hook. On the one side is the gun-control community, which sniffed a rare political opening and is determined to use it to the max. Vice President Joe Biden´s gun-violence task force

The problem is not guns. It is mental illness.

#1,
Are you saying that the obysmal won will take Joey´s shotguns away?

Another reason bobo may have given this task to Joe is all they have to do is dust off the gun-grab plan they already had to satisfy the public outrage generated by the Fast & Furious exercise, except they got caught, change a few words, put on a new cover, and PRESTO, new plan.

The problem isn´t Congress, but Executive Order. Obambi believes he is DIctator in Chief and has the power to do anything. And he will and it will take decades to overturn in the courts (if at all).

Need to constantly state how Democrats want
to take away your Constitutional rights.

They want to take away your lawfully purchased firearms.

Why? The Dems are scared of this link, at this time, and are trying to hide from this fact.

Only a few are talking about the REAL problem...young men (boys) 14-25 who are on mind altering prescriptions such as Ritalin, Prozac, Zoloft, Paxil, Adapin, Thorazine, etc. Most of the mass shooters were on these drugs.

FTA:Senate Democrat Joe Manchin caused a media sensation when he declared, immediately after Sandy Hook, that nobody needed "30 rounds in a clip." Less reported was that it took the Democrat about the time necessary for your average West Virginian to drive to a ballot box to clarify that statement and to add that he´s "so proud of the NRA."

I love it!

There need be only two questions asked of each and every pro gun control advocate: Do you enjoy private protection for you professionally or privately, and is that protection armed with guns? Are you willing to disarm them as a sign of sincerely?

This proves without a doubt that Democrats don´t like America as it is. They want it changed and if it takes executive orders or rewriting the Constitution, they will.

They honestly believe they can protect you better than you can, can provide your needs better than you can, can raise your children better than you can, can spend your money better than you can, can pick the right food to eat better than you can, can keep you healthier than you can, can do anything better than you can.

The people that are expanding the government to be more intrusive, are the same people who want to confiscate our guns. Shouldn´t come as a surprise.

Obama’s MO for the second term is to govern by executive order fiat. As fast as the SCOTUS can shoot down his fiats, he’ll generate more. The glacial pace of SCOTUS litigation will ensure that Obama can institute his “complete transformation of America” with little effective opposition. Impeachment is the only thing that can derail his plans.

If you think you NEED to answer WHY anyone needs a certain number of rounds/clips, or automatic weapon, you´ve ALREADY lost the argument. Our 2nd Amendment guarantees your right to bear arms, period! All other comments/questions about it are irrelevant! Start your conversation THERE with gun-grabbers.

The Democrats *will* press the issue because it serves their interests whether it wins or loses: it distracts attention from what a horrible failure the Democrats have been in economic, foreign, and health care policies; it lets them attack Republicans: "We love children, the Republicans/NRA want to give guns to nutcases to kill children. The Republicans would love to kill the children themselves, but are too busy obstructing progress in Washington." Three, staying on the offensive keeps the Republicans in ´whipped dog defense´ mode.

And as for the "Congress will never pass it" argument, that´s precisely what a lot of people said about Obamacare.

1. It´s absurd to think we can actually "do something" about these one-in-a-zillion hyper-crazies before-the-fact.
2. The inalienable right to self-defense precedes and trumps any law that might be passed. That is, such rights are beyond the reach of gov´t. That happens to be what the Constitution itself recognizes in the Bill of Rights.
3. Point 2 means self-defense [and the rest] are not open to discussion or debate.
4. Do not incorrectly assume we therefore have no recourse re lunatic murderers. Rights cannot be taken from the law-abiding, but they can be forfeited by criminal acts.
5. Yes, it might be hard to defend these rights -- but it´ll be a lot easier than getting them back later.
6. And just to be sure -- it´s not about the guns; it´s all about control.

#10: "Infringed," as I´m sure you know.

More questions we need to keep asking this gun grabbing government. Why do they need so many rounds ( 8 or 10 per citizen ) of hollow point ammunition for homeland security and various Government agencies? Are they planning to kill a significant portion of the population after taking away their weapons like the commie gun grabbers did. Why do they consider returning veterans who know how to use a weapon a greater security threat than foreign terrorists? Documents coming from homeland security make this case.

If it ever came down to gun confiscation, realistically not much chance, it is like drug prohibition: it creates a giant black market, criminal underworld. And big brother will now have more prospective criminals added to the citizenry. More innocent people to arrest simply by finding a (planted) gun in their car. So simple. Genocide is the predictable result of Hitlerian, Stalinist, Castro gun confiscation. In our early dictator America
it will be enough for the tyranny just to be able to arrest ANYbody they want to arrest. Meanwhile, as opposed to previous tyrannical confiscations (Germany, Russia,
Cuba, few Americans will ever give up their guns, so arrest, constant arrests, will be the only government tyranny answer.

These mass murder - suicides are a First Amendment problem. The murderer wishes to commit suicide with a blaze of glory. The press barons know that if it bleeds, it leads, sells big and increases their influence. When the "press" adopts a new policy of publicizing only those suicides that do no follow mass murder and refuses to even mention those suicides that mass murder, then there will be an end to the mass murder. We can return to the debate of disarming the army and the citizens and arming The Tyrant Obama´s private army.

In order to believe that the 2nd Amendment means ANYTHING besides protection against tyranny (e.g. hunting or self-defense, although they are perfectly legitimate pursuits) you must believe that the Founders drafted the Bill of Rights with all the amendments except the second from the top dedicated to protecting the individual from government. Such a belief defies common sense, which is why the lefties want to parse its meaning rather than examine its position within the context of the other amendments.

As #20 said, it´s all about control. Look at Mao´s China,Cambodia´s Packo Rouge, Vietman, Ussr, kill millions to gain control. They then live in the lap of luxury while bleeding the people and country.
#12, they don´t care about protecting you or your family(even the CHILDREN), they care about ruling over you and us. They are the ELITES don´t you know.
Be very careful what you do and say on the net. Use the library computers if neccessary.

It is a Bill of Atainder. As crippled as Wikipedia might be sometime, there is a great explanation and history there.
Bill of Attainder is declaring a person or persons guilty of some crime and punishing them w/o the privilege of a judicial trial.
There are other details but that is the crux. The creation of the list by Feinstein is the "Bill"imo.I am not an atty. That list and that vid "taints" the property of law-abiding Americans. There is no trial and no chance for defense.They think they are being clever to run this "quickly" by administrative action.Everything has to be done fast by the donks.
However these bill of attainder issues could be filed in Federal Court. So what if it gets thrown out. Move to another court: dismissed or not heard.Eventually it will get kicked up to the appeals level.
If the junta wants to rule buy decree, then the American citizens can as well.
Also the same statute is refered to as ex post facto (after-the-fact)laws and states that there is no inpairing of obligation of contracts...Wouldthat be bond-holders of corporations crammed down by the junta?

NEW YORK -- Fast-food protests are planned for several U.S. cities Tuesday as labor organizers look to bring attention to practices they say illegally deprive workers of their wages. The protests are planned for about 30 cities, but it´s not clear what the scope of the turnout will be. It´s part of an ongoing campaign by labor groups to build support for pay of $15 an hour and bring attention to the rights of low-wage workers. Organizers have also been referring workers to attorneys, who filed lawsuits in three states last week saying McDonald´s was stealing their wages in a

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say.

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

Are the borders of every country now up for grabs? We´ve heard all the arguments, including that Crimea´s population is 58% Russian, and that it was only in 1954, during the Soviet era under Nikita Khrushchev — himself a Ukrainian — that it became part of Ukraine.

LOS ANGELES — A National Guard reservist has been arrested at the U.S.-Canada border in Washington for allegedly trying to aid al-Qaida in a plot to attack a Southland subway. Nicholas Teausant, 20, of Acampo, Calif., was charged Monday with attempting to provide material to support a foregoing terrorist organization, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office said. Teausant was arrested at the Canadian border “with the intent of continuing to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, a foreign terrorist organization more widely known as al-Qaida in Iraq,” officials said.

French president François Hollande has already announced that “there will be sanctions Monday on visas and assets of a certain number of [Russian] individuals if there is no de-escalation.” But he absolutely must go further.

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said.

First lady Michelle Obama, her two daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother touched down Thursday in China for what’s being touted as a weeklong feel-good tourist event, amid increasing murmurs back home about U.S. taxpayers having to foot the bill. Mrs. Obama is supposed to use her visit for soft diplomacy only, and shy from the more controversial topics that plague U.S.-China relations, namely human rights and economics.

Has President Obama´s impunity come to an end? After five years of his flouting the letter and spirit of the law in an increasingly brazen fashion, congressional Republicans have been starting to ramp up their rhetoric about Obama´s lawlessness, their most concerted effort on the issue to date. Several new reports from top Republicans underscore the breadth of Obama´s executive overreach. Viewed comprehensively, it involves laws ranging from healthcare to immigration to privacy to technology to social issues to national security matters and more.

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that he thinks Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick “would make a great president or vice president.” Obama and Patrick, both Democrats, are friends and close political allies. The two men have campaigned for each other, with Patrick acting as a surrogate for Obama nationally during the 2012 presidential race. Patrick has said clearly that he intends to return to the private sector when his second term as governor is up at the end of the year and will not run for president in 2016. But he has not ruled out a run for office in the

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. The expected rate hikes will be announced in the coming months amid an intense election year, when control of the Senate is up for grabs. The sticker shock would likely bolster the GOP’s prospects in November and hamper ObamaCare insurance enrollment efforts in 2015. The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but

Government officials now admit the data system and transponder quit communicating after the pilots said things were OK. That means they didn’t lie. The official Malaysian account of the last contacts made to and received by Flight MH370 is unraveling. As it does, the sinister interpretations of what happened in the cockpit of the Boeing 777 become less persuasive. We return to the all-important timeline. Originally, the Malaysians said that the last words from the cockpit—from the copilot, “All right, good night”—were spoken to air traffic controllers as the airplane left Malaysian air space at 1:30am.

Ellen DeGeneres was a completely slavish toady to President Obama as he appeared on her show to sell Obamacare -- not to young people, but to mothers. The president made his pitch to "especially all the moms out there who may have young people – 26, 27, do not have health insurance, but they think they’re invincible and nothing’s ever going to happen to ‘em – what we’ve said is you never know what life is going to throw at ya."
