NRA Exposes “Gun Speech” Plot by State Department

The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action has uncovered a plot at the U.S. Department of State. The plot would limit or curb “free speech” regarding firearms.  This is an article Oath Keepers recommends for all readers, so please do check it out at this link:

Here are a couple of teasers from the article at the NRA’s website:

It’s happening again— President Obama is using his imperial pen and telephone to curb your rights and bypass Congress through executive action.
Even as news reports have been highlighting the gun control provisions of the Administration’s “Unified Agenda” of regulatory objectives (see accompanying story), the Obama State Department has been quietly moving ahead with a proposal that could censor online speech related to firearms. This latest regulatory assault, published in the June 3 issue of the Federal Register, is as much an affront to the First Amendment as it is to the Second. Your action is urgently needed to ensure that online blogs, videos, and web forums devoted to the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition do not become subject to prior review by State Department bureaucrats before they can be published.

With the new proposal published on June 3, the State Department claims to be “clarifying” the rules concerning “technical data” posted online or otherwise “released” into the “public domain.” To the contrary, however, the proposal would institute a massive new prior restraint on free speech. This is because all such releases would require the “authorization” of the government before they occurred. The cumbersome and time-consuming process of obtaining such authorizations, moreover, would make online communication about certain technical aspects of firearms and ammunition essentially impossible.

Penalties for violations are severe and for each violation could include up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million. Civil penalties can also be assessed. Each unauthorized “export,” including to subsequent countries or foreign nationals, is also treated as a separate violation.

 Read the whole article at the NRA’s site and learn how you can help stop the administration’s assault on our rights.

  1. “President Obama is using his imperial pen and telephone to curb your rights and bypass Congress through executive action.”

    Two things wrong with this sentence. First we are NOT a monarchy, we are a Constitutional Republic, so as much as obama wishes it was so, there is NO SUCH THING AS AN IMPERIAL PEN AND PHONE here in America.

    Second, writing legislation is not a duty/power assigned to the executive branch. Inferred from this is that when he (obama) writes “By the Authority Invested In Me By the US Constitution”, it actually has to have been “vested” to the executive branch of which he is now the (impersonating) leader of that branch ONLY.

    That power/authority was “vested” to the legislative branch ONLY, and those that serve within that branch may not give, loan, sell, trade, etc that vested authority. Matter of fact, sicne the US Constitution gives them constitutional remedies to stop other branches from doing unconstitutional things, it might even qualify as *Treason on the part of the legislative branch.

    What does this mean? Obama does Not lawfully have any authority to create legislation that is binding upon the American people. Unfortunately that makes those that are ignorant of their Oath and their duties to the US Constitution – NOT a person – when they implement those unlawful orders they are committing **Terrroism and *Treason, plus Perjury, and other felonies, crimes both criminal and civil.

    If you are in the US military (well, UN Military), or Law enforcement – state and/or generao (federal) at this time learn what the Oath you took means because if you are going to get charged and prosecuted for Treason, Terrorism against the American people make that decision YOUR OWN choice, not just because you were dumbed down enough to “just follow orders” or to “just do your job”.

    Why? Because when we stop these treasonous scum, there will be a lot that get the death penalty because emotions of the people who had their trust betrayed will be running high. If you are one of those prosecuted, and we will work to see that ALL are, it would be really stupid to do like some of the Nazis did and die because you “just followed orders” or to “just did your job”.

    So make it YOUR choice, and make it an informed choice. There is no thing in America as a “Need to know” basis, if you are part of the operation in anyway, YOU NEED TO KNOW THE DETAILS.

  2. Obama doesn’t quit. He’s still pushing his gun grabbing agenda that Congress previously defeated. So Obama’s using an Executive Order like he did for his attempted ban of green-tip AR-15 ammo. But, also like the green-tip ammo, let’s overwhelm the State Department with emails like we did to the ATF. And also like the green-tip ammo, lets push our federal representatives to kill this obvious censorship. Under the NRA’s leadership, ATF “tapped out” quickly. Let’s apply the same pressure to the State Department. Please reference NRA link above. Thank you

    1. Here is an email I’ve sent if you are looking for a sample:

      Subject: ITAR Amendment—Revisions to Definitions; Data Transmission and Storage

      The State Department’s attempt to censor online speech concerning the technical aspects of firearms and ammunition has no tangible benefit. It’s an obvious attempt by the Obama administration to use an Executive Order to push his gun control agenda after Congress defeated it. His censorship violates free speech, 1st Amendment, and restricts the civilian’s knowledge about the arms described in the 2nd Amendment. Please stop this censorship immediately. Thank you
