Obama Administration Preparing Last Assault on Gun Rights

Big tip of the hat to Breitbart.com for doing the legwork on the Obama administration’s latest assault to roll back the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners before it vacates office in 2016.

Via the Justice Department and the Bureaus of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, president Obama is looking to make the following changes, among others, all of which were announced in the Spring 2015 Unified Agenda, a document that “provides federal agencies with the most systematic, government-wide method to alert the public about their upcoming proposed rules.”

Once again, courtesy of Breitbart:

RIN: 1140 AA04–will expand persons barred from gun ownership and possession by including “misdemeanor crime of domestic violence” as grounds for forfeiting the right to “ship, transport, possess, or receive in or affecting commerce firearms or ammunition.” It would also make it “unlawful for any person to sell or otherwise dispose of a firearm or ammunition to any person knowing or having reasonable cause to believe that the recipient has been convicted of such a misdemeanor.”

RIN: 1140 AA47–broadens the number of people barred from gun possession by expanding the ATF’s mental health provisions on background checks. The NRA pointed out that because most mentally ill persons pose no threat to society, the new regulations will actually become “snares [for] masses of mostly harmless individuals.”

RIN: 1140 AA41–impacts FFLs by creating new reporting requirements for lost or stolen guns as well as new reporting requirements for lost or stolen guns that have been recovered.

RIN: 1140-AA43–impacts trusts that hold firearms regulated under the National Firearms Act. The rule requires trusts, corporations or legal entities possessing the guns to produce a “responsible person” who can undergo a background for guns in probate, before they are passed to a descendant. This person would “complete a specified form” and “submit photographs and fingerprints” simply to hold the guns while the estate is settled.

Some of these suggestions have been around for a few years, however, the DOJ is now seeking “final action.”

“The Obama administration hates the Second Amendment, and it’s clear that every place where it can push, it will,” Michael Hammond, legislative counsel for the Gun Owners of America, told The Hill.com. “This is an indication of an anti-gun administration trying to annoy us in any way it can.”

Hammond went on to say that the domestic violence provision could ban guns for “a person who spanked his kid, or yelled at his wife, or slapped her husband” and that “The Obama administration is trying very hard to disqualify people from owning a gun on the basis that they are seeing a psychologist.”

The battle continues.  The question is will Obama succeed this time around?

    Yes, 0bama can try it, and probably will, but thank God that the 2nd Amendment gives us the right and the means to stop him. Mostly the means, because that right comes from God anyhow.

    The real reason for the 2nd Amendment…….to prevent jerks like dumBO from doing exactly what he is attempting to do.
    Arm the citizenry to prevent TYRANNY. So…..dumBO, put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    Its worse that you guys think. They just passed another bill here in Oregon that says that ALL PRIVATE GUNS SALES MUST GO THRU A BACKGROUND CHECK. It sounds like a small bill…(there is no new small gun bills!) only big ones. The communist democrats passed it by saying that this had to be done as a STATE OF EMERGENCY! What the hell? That way they didnt have to let us vote on it. They just passed it. Then, they put in a bunch of other laws into the bill once it was passed. Now guess what. They made it so we as Oregon citizens have to take our gun to an FFL dealer for him to ship it to another FFL dealer. We can not ship the sold gun ourselves any more. The FFL dealers now say they will have to add $30-40 to do this for us for each gun! Why? Because they also added into the law, a lot of new garbage creating a lot of new paper work and it takes time, so they have to charge us for their time.
    I thought, I will get my own FFL………..BUT the morons have made it extremely hard now for us to get an FFL to use out of our homes. We must have a business address and they are not giving them out like they used to. Then, every gun you sell, weather kept by the buyer or returned back after a 3 day inspection, will now be in your name. Even if it was from your Fathers estate or given as a gift! Now it is registered in your name and they know where to get that gun. This is Gun registration to know where all guns are. ANd this crap just keeps getting worse. This is just the tip of the iceburg. I just do not have the time and I dont want to bore you with all the laws that were stuck in when no one was looking. They just tell the public “its just one little law to make is safe and fuzzy feeling”. They have done this in Washington state last year and now this year in Oregon. The rumor is Nevada is next! They are systematically turning us all into California. One state at a time and no one watches when just one state does this. Once all 50 states are ruined by Democrats, they will have won when no one was looking. Come on people wake up! What the heck do you think this whole drone thing is all about? Jsu looking for that ever scary pot field? For crying out loud…it was just legalized this month here in Oregon and was legalized in Washington last year…………see a pattern? My guess is they will start putting chips in new guns and ammo so that the Drones can fly over and see how much ammo you have and how many guns. Then, when they come to takes your guns, they will know how big an army they need to send, to haul your ass in and take your supply! And of course, that will consume all your finances which will go to the government. And of course, you wont ever get your guns back because you are now considered a felon!

      Turnabout is fair play.
      Time to rally gun owners together, oust the current control group, then rescind foul laws and institute comprehensive laws that will stop further degradation of our rights.
      We can and must rally the support and get the job done once and for all.

    This president has no desire to go by the constitution,He does whatever he wants!! He should be replaced!!

    The only change in gunowner’s rights during the Obama administration is an expansion: we can now have firearms in national parks.
    I have been in and around the gun trade for 50 years (just had my first ATF audit) and the bleating has never changed — “they are coming to take your guns” is the constant refrain and …. it never has happened. Every time the politicians have enacted something stupid, they get fired and the law sunsets. Every year Congressman Bobby Rush (the only person to ever beat Barack Obama in an election) introduces a Take the Guns Bill and it always dies for lack of a co-sponser, but pols of all stripes get to raise cash on it.
    So get a grip and take a pill: NOBODY, not Obama, not Hillary, is coming to take our guns.
    FYI: domestic violence is the most dangerous situation for lawmen and mentally ill folks use guns to kill themselves and account for half of the deaths by firearms every year.

    I agree and disagree with the backround check. I agree cause I don’t want serial killers getting bad ass guns. I disagree cause I have the right to be left alone and able to protect myself and my neighbors, friends, family, and yes, even my worst enemy. Felonies are a joke, look up Ron Paul on youtube, his son is a spitting image of him, so lets get Rand Paul in office and maybe just maybe we will get most (if not all) our rights back.

    Inform me if I am wrong.. But most if not all provisions already exist since the Clinton Administration. Unless these were of the then Brady Bill only…

  • Jim June 8, 2015, 4:30 pm

    I’ve never had to fill out a Form 4473 at B Dalton.

  • Al Caplan June 8, 2015, 3:28 pm

    In Florida no person arrested for domestic violence, misdemeanor or felony, can possess a firearm until the case is disposed of. No person convicted of domestic violence can possess a firearm.

  • buurga June 8, 2015, 1:43 pm

    Here is an idea. Why doesn’t he start curtailing the ATF’s rights? Or, better yet abolish this private army and let local law enforcement handle these issues.

  • fred June 8, 2015, 1:04 pm

    you need help lots of help .you are a poor president.

    Good article but the heading is misconstrued. ‘PREPARING’ a ‘LAST’ assault on our 2/A rights? You obviously never saw enough combat to comprehend the difference between ‘CONTINUING’ A forward flanking assault that WILL NEVER END until they Win! And this is just the start of the biggest frontal assault on your gun rights since the invasion at Normandy.

    I’ve been warning everybody about this for months going on years. But nobody gave a shit. All everybody seems to like to do is figure out a way to ‘get around it’, but never to proactively move to prevent it. Or they argue inanely in their armchairs that ‘They’ll never get away with it because there’s already too many guns out there to confiscate or too many of ‘us’ behind every blade of grass, or the other stupidity with the Molon Labe nonsense. Because guess what, my friends, ‘They’ WILL come and get it. They’re already doing it. And a lot of you are going to have to take heavier dosages of your meds, (alcohol is also a ‘drug/self-med’) also making you illegal to have guns (wording is already there in the new 4473s if you interpret carefully) from being so stressed out to handle the fact that even your own friends, neighbors, and family members will be Helping Them!

    They already started–as i’ve often predicted in the past–the process to disarm combat vets. Soon anyone with any PTSD designation will fall into a prohibited to own firearms status, AND not even their immediate live-in family members will be allowed to possess firearms!

    (read my articles on Survivopedia.com about “Five Devices You Can’t Hide From” and “Privacy Apocalypse’ for a glimpse into part of the schema of how they’ll systematically confiscate your shit)

    It’s not a question of whether or not Obama will succeed or not. Because they ALREADY ARE ‘succeeding’ because they are getting away with subverting our Constitutional guarantees! . And with the 2nd/A, the reality is that if we are not winning, we are then losing. The question is whether Hillary, when she wins, will even allow us to have airsoft guns anymore. I mean, she certainly wants to show her NWO butt buddies that she can go one better than Australia, the UK, and Canada, in terms of global totalitarianism?

    Right now the Obama regime will do nothing to ‘rock the political boat’. They won’t even bomb ISIS effectively to prevent this despicable religionist atrocity from mass murder and mayhem! But once the Marxist Hillary cartel crowns its new plutocratic monarch, that’s right about the time all of the converging components necessary for their great gun control plan will commence in full obliterating force. By the time the headlines read ‘Widespread Protest During Last Stages of Mass Nationwide Gun Confiscations’, It will be all over.

    Although i can firmly state that i ‘urged’ my legislators so incessantly that i occasionally risked arrest.. Last week i ‘promised’ my Senator, whom i voted for and helped with his election because of his ‘promise’ to uphold the Constitution, that i will do everything possible to spread the word, and spend every spare dime to DEFEAT because he didn’t ‘Stand with Rand’, on permanently killing this fraudulent tyrannical useless ‘patriot act’.

    But without every one of us coming together and doing that regardless of our particular political persuasions, it doesn’t do much good against this anti-2/A billionaire funded leftist juggernaut.

    As far as all the ‘Jeffersonian Solutions” being pumped up out there and because it’s just the way i always was, I’ll probably be one of the first one’s ‘in’ and the last ones out if it came to ‘that’…

    But it doesn’t have to come to ‘that’. Jefferson and the rest of the Founders realized how destructive wars are, even just wars. That’s why they also devised our Egalitarian Constitution as a ‘better’ solution to prevent tyranny and power elite control over us.

    So when i’m gone I just hope i’ll be somewhere where i won’t hear my family saying…

    Why did he and all those others have to die for nothing? All they had to do–when they had the chance– was to simply VOTE THE DIRTY TRAITORS OUT!

    • Jep June 8, 2015, 1:16 pm

      You rant like you are the only person to predicted “in the past–”the process to disarm combat vets. It has been a very big topic, everywhere… including local media. And “warning everybody about this for months going on years”? So have tens of thousands of us! And as far as “All everybody seems to like to do is figure out a way to ‘get around it’, but never to proactively move to prevent it”? You are apparently referring to armchair activists… I have attended many 2nd Amendment rallies in the past 10 years, and there was absolutely no talk of how to get around anything, the speakers at these events have no delusions about the anti-gun crowds will to continue their fight and spoke of only ways to take the fight to them through the exact methods you mention and many more. These rallies were very well attended, several to the overflow point due to venues being to small to accommodate the amount of people that showed up in support, and to learn more ways to win the fight. And just for perspective, I live in a small town of 3100 people, we had 1500+ show up at a single event, and no one seemed to be looking for a way around the next set of anti-2nd Amendment laws, but rather looking to prevent any changes to the 2nd Amendment.

      While I appreciate your enthusiasm, frankly you are all over the place with your comment.
      We already have deep divisions in our ranks (Pro-2nd Amendment-ers) but make no mistake you are one of many in the fight.. That said I completely agree with the thought process that if we are not winning, we are then losing. Unfortunately one of the largest Pro-2nd Amendment groups we have has been willing to compromise away bits and pieces of our Rights. We need to stand our ground, and that means reelecting/electing Representatives that will do the same, we have compromised enough. It also means more than writing out a check for the membership dues of the lifelong club you have belonged to. We need members who know what their group is voting for, and to walk the walk, hold Representatives accountable, remind them of why they hold their position and who put them there.

      You mentioned your support for your Representative as well as reminding him/her why the hold the position they do, an excellent example of what we need to do. If a 10th of the people who hang around the Pro-2nd Amendment blogs, YoutTube Videos and Website and comment about how everyone else should act or what they should do, would contact their Representatives(s) or hell just vote for a pro-2nd Amendment Representative we wouldn’t be in the mess we have coming at us once again.

      So, realize you are part of a very large group of like-minded individuals all fighting for the same cause. Some of us attend rallies, some of us organize rallies, some of us donated 30% of our gross income to NAGR. Others support the NRA, GOA, some write and host Pro 2nd Amendment Blogs or SMOGS, some harass the hell out of their Representatives! You are far from the only one in this fight or it would have been over long ago.

    “reasonable cause” attached to any qualification from the feds is enough to veto it.

    Just like ‘reasonably competent’ at work in the TSA…

  • Jay June 8, 2015, 7:54 am

    What a minute, just a dog bone minute! obama is the absolute best president we have ever had, the best at being the worst! Now if you could only put women’s close on him you’d have his successor, oops wait a minute, we do, billary!

  • Anthony W Rich Jr June 8, 2015, 5:02 am

    Assault all you want to, Mr. President. Your actions prove loud and clear you are the worst president in history. Only a traitor of Our Country would support Gun Laws. Law abiding citizens should be able to walk into a gun store and purchase whatever gun they choose, No background check, no list, no registration. We The People of Our United States have been pushed around long enough.
    So take your action against us. You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
