Will Obama Use An Executive Order To Enact Gun Control?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Moments ago, MSNBC showed a clip in which "gun tzar" VP Joe Biden made it clear that "the President is going to act" on the issue of gun control, and that "executive orders and executive action can be taken." Of course "can" does not mean "will" as the fallout from an executive order bypassing Congress would be rather dramatic, especially on a topic so near and dear to at least half of America, and the response, to put it mildly, would make the Piers Morgan vs Alex Jones screaming match seems like a tranquil discussion between two dignified stoics. If "can" however, does become "will", America may have far bigger issues over the next two months than the debt ceiling, kicking the sequester down another several months, or even the quadrillion yen tuna.

Let's see if Americans have any balls like we're always boasting, it's time to start shooting.  If we don't use them now, we don't need them.

Wrong!  If it's time to "demonstrate" anything, it is that our own guns aren't required for violent reaction against unconstitutional takings. 

However, the fact that they're damn handy is a given. 

Let MSM cover slashings of authorities (formerly) carrying firearms.

Right.  Many Senators and Reps voting the wrong way or failing to disallow the un-Constitutional Executive Order would have a tough time coming home to their districts. 

I know where mine lives, do you? We have a Constitutional right to seek redress of our grievances.

But, isn't that the whole point of the matter. Why gun control, now, while the federal government is already broke and exceeded their debt limit and the Fed Reserve is buying bonds before they're issued?

They've reached the end of their money game and they have to up the ante. They have no way out and must resort to extreme tactics. An executive order, a constitutional crisis, et. al., is just what they need for a complete breakdown and a reset.

Get ready for some real shit. I posted earlier today that we're within six months of the final curtain, maybe I should have said six weeks (or six days).

I've been following this entire clusterfuck since 2006 and I've not seen moves and headlines and stories so extreme until now.

Civil war? We'll be lucky if that's the worst of it. Try food shortages, cut off electricity, no internet, bank holidays, riots, fires, explosions. Fuck. Motherfuckers. All about money and control.

In order to vaporize the promises made (pensions, SS, etc.) as well as debt owed to foreign nations, the reset will have to be ugly.  Or it will have to be global.

I would think a global reset is unlikely since there are too many players who would not agree... too many variables and moving parts... and that angle is all about resources anyhow.  It would be a free for all that would more likely than not lead to WWIII.

The more likely is one or more nations simply collapse overnight under thier own wieght - leading to civil unrest.  Lately I have come to appreciate earlier calls that the US would break up.  Bearing in mind that power and wealth holds no allegiance to any country, it very well may be that the US is the next Soviet Union, or is scheduled for demolision.

It is probably a simple ploy to distract the national dialog away from the shitty centrally planned economy, the criminally insane federal debt and the FED's counterfeit money printing racket. i.e. Take the attention away from Obama's dismal record and his lack of any constructive ideas on how to fix the country's problems going into his second term.  This gun debate will eclipse any meaningful "halftime" assesment of Obama's presidency. These asholes have piled up a mountain of debt and have nothing to show in terms of improving our national interests.

They already know what they are going to propose and these meetings are just for show.  The thugs posing as leaders in Washinton have misunderestimated the will of the people on this.  In the end, they will not make much headway on "gun control".

The phrase "Never let a crisis go to waste" comes to mind.  After 20 defenseless children were massacred, a lot of people moved quickly and loudly into the anti-gun camp on pure emotion, so if they're going to make a grab, they have to do it now while the sheeple aren't thinking about Constitutional rights, etc.

Perhaps the government will not have to knock on your door....

 

In any case, the VERY LAST THING they will try will be the midnight raids. Everyone and anyone will be your enemy before that occurs. There will be no one individual to strike out against. The giant, gray miasma of society will be your enemy. Ignorance, lethargy, apathy. How do you fight that?

When the initial turn in period ends, penalties will begin. More friendly letters in the mail. Fines assessed. Jail time threatened. More compliance. Then, an amnesty. Turn them in, no questions asked. More compliance. Then maybe a so-called 'buy back'. Free gas cards, gift cards, cash. Who knows?

In parallel to all this, of course, are the exhortations to the public to turn in non-compliant gun owners. Turn them in for rewards. Turn them in for reduced prison sentences. Turn them in for a pat on the head. Your civic duty and all that.

See, now that you are demonized in the eyes of the public, and an actual criminal in the eyes of the government, then all of governments resources can be applied to you with impunity.

What you imply, is that the statists have been planning disarmament for a couple years (at least), and that even if Newtown was not a false flag action, they waited until a suitably horrible tragedy happened to implement their plan. False flag or not, the statists' logic (based on what they propose) is that they could have prevented 20 children from being murdered and they did nothing.

"This is no time for ceremony. British bayonets will soon control the country. It is a question of freedom or slavery. For my part I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and provide for it. We have done everything that could be done to avert the storm that is now coming on. What has there been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify hope? Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? These are the implements of subjugation, sent over to rivet upon us the chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? We have been trying that for the last ten years; have we anything new to offer? In vain may we indulge the fond hope of reconciliation.

There is no longer room for hope. If we wish to be free, we must fight. I repeat it, sir, we must fight. An appeal to arms, and to the God of Hosts, is all that is left us.

They tell us, sir, that we are weak, unable to cope with an enemy so powerful. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed and a British guard shall be stationed in every house?

Sir, we are not weak, if we make proper use of those means which the God of nature placed in our power. Three millions of people armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. We shall not fight alone. A just God presides over the destinies of nations.

The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone. It is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. It is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery. Our chains are now forged. Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston. The war is inevitable. And let it come. I repeat it, sir, let it come.

Gentlemen may cry peace, peace, but there is no peace. Our brethren are already in the field. Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take but as for me, give me liberty or give me death."

Patrick Henry

That, or.............

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? After all, you knew ahead of time that those bluecaps were out at night for no good purpose. And you could be sure ahead of time that you'd be cracking the skull of a cutthroat. Or what about the Black Maria sitting out there on the street with one lonely chauffeur--what if it had been driven off or its tires spikes?
The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if... We didn't love freedom enough...”

I was at Lowes the other day buying PVC pipe, caps, and glue to bury a thing or two, just in case.

Funny thing - they were low on that sort of thing, and one of the floorwalkers said a lot of people were buying the same stuff and for the same reason.

Banning anything that people actually want just creates a higher value for that thing on a black market.  Prohibition gave us the mafia - which supported it because it made them money.

War on drugs?  We make the worst people (cartels) on earth rich, and powerful, and yes, they support this "war" that makes drugs expensive enough that people shoot one another over turf.

Try it with guns?  Well, if the past is any guide....some of that buried stuff is going to be a world beating investment in not very long.

then they will shut off your electricity...water...freeze your bank accounts....graft your paycheck to pay the fines inccured....in other words starve you to death first....then they will come to your home...

Just think of how many people sold firearms a long time ago and do not have the bill of sale anymore.  Or never kept documentation for stuff that was bought.  Your most honest and trusting citizens would never have imagined one day they could get slammed for such things.  What was constitution then, makes them a criminal now?

The whole concept here is flawed.  Putting the genie back isn't easy.

I think the sabre rattling is like pushing gas to $5 a gallonn from $3 to make $4 feel acceptable.  Creeping legislation.  Creeping police state.  Etc.  Two steps forward and one step back is still forward motion.

I think you missed something, just after voluntary turn ins then they will offer outrageous dollar amounts at gun buy backs. I mean heck they are printing money like crazy so I think they will get a lot of people to turn in their AR15s by offering say triple the current market value. What would it matter to the government to buy them at such prices. They got people to think of this stuff all day long. They probably have it figured out down to the penny that it would be cost effective.

The important thing, I think, something that will really be a good barometer to figure out what the government is doing is just watch how they are going to treat local law enforcement. I don't mean your big city LA or NY cops but the cops in small town America. When the government starts to demonized them for supporting ones right to keep a weapon and to use it in self defense then it's almost go time. When the government begins programs to disarm the local police or make them keep their firearms at the police station then you should know that it has started. Many people knock the local cops but a lot of them have more in common with you then you may think. That's what to watch for make no mistake about it.

It's the Marines' Rifleman's Creed: http://www.usmcpress.com/heritage/marine_corps_rifleman's_creed.htm

This is my rifle.  There are many like it, but this one is mine.  It is my life.  I must master it as I must master my life.  Without me my rifle is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.        I must fire my rifle true.  I must shoot straighter than the enemy who is trying to kill me.  I must shoot him before he shoots me.  I will.  My rifle and I know that what counts in war is not the rounds we fire, the noise of our burst, or the smoke we make.  We know that it is the hits that count.  We will hit.

      My rifle is human, even as I am human, because it is my life.  Thus, I will learn it as a brother.  I will learn its weaknesses, its strengths, its parts, its accessories, its sights and its barrel.  I will keep my rifle clean and ready, even as I am clean and ready.  We will become part of each other.

      Before God I swear this creed.  My rifle and I are the defenders of my country.  We are the masters of our enemy.  We are the saviors of my life.

      So be it, until victory is America's and there is no enemy.

I seriously doubt he will "go it alone" on this one.  It will be a bi-partisan act, most likely the Feinstein bill.

If the Administration issues any executive order, it will be some very narrow control and won't involve banning guns, but even that is doubtful, imo.

I think all Amerikans should own as many guns as they like. In fact they should go into debt more just so that they can go out every Saturday to shop for more guns and ammo. It could become a new order religion of sorts - work all week long or collect food stamps whatever it is your doing then everyone get excited cause here comes the sabbath. On Saturday jump in your GM piece of shit that you went into debt for and fill the tank with gas using your credit card, pickup a few slim jims too. Then off you go to Guns r' Us and max those mother fucking credit cards to death on some more weapons and ammo. Hell if the card goes over the limit they probably have a lay away plan for backup. Then you can head home with a sense of self worth knowing that all is truly right in the land of the Free (no pun intended). Not only have you made a contribution to the economy but you have more guns to look at (and pray to if you so wish).
