While the “Assault Weapons Ban” and federal registration scheme pushed by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has already sparked a nationwide outcry against Washington’s latest attempt to further infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, the Obama administration has made clear that its own full-fledged assault on Americans’ gun rights aims to go even further. According to news reports citing officials, a task force led by Vice President Joe Biden is developing a gun control “package” including broad executive and legislative actions that could gut what remains of the Second Amendment. Even some Democrats have called the proposals “extreme.”

Among the most brazen assaults being considered by the administration is a proposal that would criminalize all private sales of guns that did not keep the federal government in the loop. The scheme, which would purport to require a full federal background check for every gun sale in America, aims to track all firearms in the country through a federal database. It would also represent an attack on gun shows. According to news reports, the administration seems to believe that the unconstitutional scheme can be implemented by “executive order.”

Gun rights activists have already shot down similar schemes, saying a national registry would simply serve as a prelude to outright confiscation later — as has happened on countless occasions throughout history, often just before governments engaged in mass murder of dissidents and target groups. However, despite massive opposition and public vows of civil disobedience, Obama and some Democrat lawmakers are determined to build an expensive federal register of all guns in America, complete with fingerprints. How such measures would reduce crime or violence remains unclear, but critics of the proposal say that was never the point anyway.

Also on the agenda is ramping up the “mental health” component of the federal background check system, another scheme Obama apparently believes can be advanced using “executive action.” Analysts, however, are already sounding alarm bells about the massive potential for abuse. Some experts are warning that anyone who has ever visited a psychiatrist or been prescribed psychiatric medications — even common anti-depressants or ADD medication, for example — could potentially be barred from owning a firearm. And now that the federal government has unconstitutionally compiled detailed health and prescription records from all across the nation, it would be relatively simple to implement such a scheme.

    There have been a number of seemingly innocuous efforts to bring force and affect upon the 2nd amendment. I personally believe in no gun registration at all, anywhere. I don’t care how many rifles and guns you have, or the capacity of your magazines. Persons who do not want to have these firearms may not be compelled to have them. I have heard of it being mandated, in certain jurisdictions, but am unsure how that might have been accomplished without complete agreement of the citizens. If you look at Kansas’s Constitution you will see that there is no compulsion to “bear arms” in that State and I am sure it is not mandated anywhere, were one to object to it on religious principle.
    But, for a “Law abiding” person to be denied that right of “Keeping and bearing arms”, or to be investigated by an “Authority” in an attempt to discourage that right is as I see it, “Un-American” constitutionally. As the philosophical question must go, what does it mean to be free?
    The Declaration of Independence states the basic premise in this manner:
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness”.
    Particular emphasis must always be reserved for the guarantor of those rights, our Creator. Regardless who you may think the Creator to be, it must be thought unwise to resist the One against whom we may not exercise power. In the United States, that One is to be found in an unbroken chain of utterances to be the Judaic- Christian God and Savior. Violation of His principles can only result in a continual harm to society inclined to do so.
    It is always the threat of a criminal element misusing stick or stone, gun or knife, that stands behind legislation to proscribe the whole of the population from any possession. Effectively this makes all suspect or at least suspect if not guilty. We anticipate that which we earnestly deny, we are not good people. Assuredly, we profess being good people, the best we know is bad people walk among us.
    Our difficulty lies in our failure to prosecute criminal action, to the legitimate extent. Indeed, any crime involving use of deadly force or a weapon of any nature should be responded to in in the most severe manner, only we don’t do that. My personal opinion, in the commission of a crime should you only threaten the life of anyone by any means, you forfeit your own. I am tired of rapists, murderers, and violent thieves being turned out on our streets to continue their antisocial behaviors, or to continue in their murders.
    Most people are cautious to state that they believe as I do, nonetheless, it is heard quietly stated among ourselves every time some infamous act plays out.
    Murder does not proceed out of the barrel of a gun without out it first being in the heart. That is truly our first and most serious issue. As people become more and more corrupt, so too does their form of governance. If the individual refuses to govern himself, the community influenced by that individual soon becomes similarly affected, should they do not respond appropriately to the bad behavior. It is what we have authorities for, but they are just not doing their job. As it is said, “The wicked walk on every side when the vilest men are exalted”. We have vile men in our government today, and we celebrate them.
    I see this country in its last stages of decay. The same fate that befell so many other peoples who allowed themselves to be subjected to tyranny and oppression shall befall us. They shall say Peace, Peace, but there is no Peace.
    What is happening in the United States is not unlike what occurs in the body affected by the AIDS virus, an encroachment upon all the healthy defenses takes place in the most insidiously deceptive manner, until the natural defenses are overwhelmed and the body suffers death. In each case however, it is a wrong response, to a legitimately ordained behavior that brings one to that tragic result. In our case, we have become corrupted to the point we neither recognize ourselves or our origins, and hold the latter in contempt. We have in large measure become licentious and profane and in little sense are we identifiable with the Fundamental Principles we were from our inception encouraged frequently resort to.
