Gun Owners of America: More Looney Tunes on Capitol Hill

Smoke a Joint, Get an ObamaPass

Sell a gun to someone who smokes a joint, get 20 years in jail
It’s Looney Toons on Capitol Hill.

Everyone’s heard about the “red herring” Feinstein Gun Ban, which “red state Democrats” will vote down in order to pretend they’re “pro-gun.”

But the bigger danger is that Obama will sign “non-controversial” gun control which is just as dangerous, but no one but us is talking about.

Take the gun licensure bill which anti-gunners are trying to dub the “gun trafficking bill.”  In the Senate, the bill is S. 54, and was introduced by Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) — although it appears that it could have been drafted by an intern.

GOOFBALL PROVISION #1: The bill would impose a 20-year prison term if you planned (“conspired”) to purchase a firearm in order to give or raffle it to a person who, unbeknownst to you, is a “prohibited person.”

Who is a prohibited person?

Well, there are the 150,000 law-abiding veterans who are “prohibited persons” –- for no other reason than that a psychiatrist appointed a fiduciary to oversee their financial affairs.

But probably the biggest category of “prohibited persons” is persons who smoke marijuana.  Under 18 U.S.C. 922(d)(3) and (g)(3), you cannot possess a firearm in America if you are “an unlawful user of … any controlled substance…”
In over a dozen states, marijuana has been wholly or partly legalized under STATE law.

It doesn’t matter … if you even think about selling or raffling a gun to this expanding class of persons, you can go to prison for 20 years under S. 54.

GOOFBALL PROVISION #2: The bill would make you a federal “prohibited person” if you are prohibited from owning a gun under “State or local law.”

What does that even mean?

In places like New York and Chicago, everyone is prohibited from owning a firearm without a license.  Does that mean that everyone in these jurisdictions is a federal “prohibited person” under S. 54?

What if someone applies for a license and is found not to have a need to possess one?  Under the slip-shod language of the Leahy bill, these individuals would probably become federal “prohibited persons” because the bill denies any person from owning a firearm if they are “prohibited by STATE OR LOCAL LAW from possessing, receiving, selling, shipping, transporting, transferring, or otherwise disposing of the firearm or ammunition.” (S. 54, Section 5.)

Oh, incidentally, under the Veterans Disarmament Act, states are required to send the names of 95% of their prohibited persons to the FBI’s NICS system -– or lose federal funding.

So now you will have millions of law-abiding citizens — living in places like New York City and Chicago — who have their names placed in the NICS system.  And the Leahy bill doesn’t address some very important questions related to their status as gun owners.
How will these banned citizens get their names cleared? The federal government has for years continued enforcing the Schumer amendment which defunds the ability of the ATF to restore the rights of non-violent prohibited persons. Will New Yorkers and Chicagoans get their gun rights restored after they move away from the localities that banned them from owning guns and which turned them into prohibited persons?

Again, the bill doesn’t say.  But we could expect that a few years from now, a future anti-gun President could use the language in S. 54 to impose a federal licensure requirement on these persons — as part of a new 23-point Executive Action memo — and make non-licensees federal prohibited persons (with all that that implies).

Maybe –- just maybe -– the courts would save us from the implications of Leahy’s goofball language.

But answer us this:  Why do anti-gun senators and representatives continue to push language which they know is fatally flawed –- just so they can say they “broke the back of the gun lobby”?

The solution is clear:  Senators –- if they are pro-gun -– MUST vote against a “motion to proceed” to any of this goofball legislation.  That is, they must vote to keep ALL gun control from even being considered on the Senate floor.

    what a travesty this is. The same phycologists are same men who program all the school shooters. Making those kids nothing more than puppets on a string. They did oswald and now forward many years to perform events to be used to allow congresss to pass legislation curbing our freedoms.
    also presidential orders to assist in enlsaving all people. Stealing our God given rights to life,liberty and pursute of happiness.

    GRRRR
    Just because they make it a “law” does NOT make it lawful. All it does is make those who do not understand their oath and enforce it criminals who we will later have to catch and prosecute for their crimes against America and her people. (As they are still doing to those who ‘just were doing their job” or were “just following orders” in Germany).

    Anyone involved in ANY way with “the gun licensure bill… the “gun trafficking bill”, S. 54, and was introduced by Judiciary Committee Chairman Pat Leahy (D-VT) — although it appears that it could have been drafted by an intern” – they are all going to have to be arrested and prosecuted for their part in this criminal action against the USA and her people. Interns, secretarys, researchers (unless the researcher(s) put into writing that this would be unlawful), all of those who allowed this to go on when if they had said “NO” it would not have happened.

    Look at SMARTMeters – a UN Agenda 21 program that has been being implemented that destroys our type of government from the inside. All of those “meter” service people (gas and electric) who installed them, specifically the ones who had a LEO escort them and force it on people who made it clear they did NOT want them – all have committed criminal actions against the USA and her people and “just doing your job” is NOT a viable defense.

    They should have realized that FORCING a meter on people that spies on those living in that home is not lawful – and REFUSED to commit the crime. The officer who used physcial force to see that the unlawful spying apparatus was put into place (and is an oathbreaker – should have KNOWN that it was unlawful and REFUSED!) doubly needs to be arrested and prosecuted for their actions against the USA and her people. Thankfully there are LOTS of pics, and videos of those people committing their criminal actions against the USA and her people.

    All the teachers, principals, etc in US schools teaching communism, anti-america, etc all should say “no”. If they cannot do that, then we will later need to arrest and prosecute them for their actions against America and her people, our children.

    Do you think that if all the support people who take care of the white house: cleaners, cooks, computer techs, groundskeepers, SS (if any are left that actually support the US Constitution as their oath requires and NOT an individual leader, ruler, office, or entity), FBI (if any are left that actually support the US Constitution as their oath requires and NOT an individual leader, ruler, office, or entity), grounds security, those that take care of the cars, planes, etc all said “No” instead of aid and abet by making it easy for them to continue what they are doing to destroy our nation and our government that this BS could continue?
    I seriously doubt it.

    It is not just the military who must say “NO” to unlawful orders from traitors. It is all law enforcement, all those who are in a support postition of ANY kind to the federal government, all those who work in bureaucracies going against America and her people must say “NO” if they want to avoid what this government – and at least the last 5 pst – from destroying our nation.

    TSA is an unlawful agency because its assigned duties are all unlawful. Nothing the do is lawful and all are working VERY hard to destroy the USA from within openly.

    DHS is most likely an unlawful agency also, uch like the CIA.

    Start with just saying “NO”. Those of you who have been around the world and know what it is lile for those people under those type of governments that they are trying to implement here – if that is what you want to live under – MOVE THERE. Or do you think that when this ends YOU will get to own stuff, and not be a slave to the “government”? Or dead as a threat to that selfsame government?

    JUST SAY ‘NO’.
