The Republicans Are In On It: Introduced Bill Banning Gun Purchases By People on Watchlists

“Slowly I turned…step by step…inch by inch…,”
(Harry Steppe/Joey Faye Vaudeville routine, immortalized by The Three Stooges)

We are currently being “funneled” into a trap that is created day-by-day with glacial slowness with the intention of nullifying the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the right to keep and bear arms.  The “Overton Window” is a concept of pushing forth concepts that are believed to be acceptable by the public.  The media has been relentless in its aid to the administration by demonizing any and all who practice their God-given, Constitution affirmed rights to possess firearms.  Thefinal enabling of this, however, is being carried about by the U.S. Congress and by President Obama with Executive Actions.

HR 1076, “The Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act,” was introduced in the House of Representatives in February of 2015 by Peter King (R, NY).  Here is the summary:

Denying Firearms and Explosives to Dangerous Terrorists Act of 2015

Amends the federal criminal code to grant the Attorney General the authority to deny the transfer of firearms or the issuance of a federal firearms and explosives license to any individual if the Attorney General: (1) determines that such individual has been engaged in or has provided material support or resources for terrorist activities, and (2) has a reasonable belief that such individual may use a firearm or explosive in connection with terrorism. Allows any individual whose firearm or explosives license application has been denied to bring legal action challenging the denial.

Prohibits the sale or distribution of firearms or explosives to any individual whom the Attorney General has determined to be engaged in terroristactivities.

Permits the Attorney General to withhold information in firearms and explosives license denial revocation suits if the Attorney General determines that the disclosure of such information would likely compromise national security.

Authorizes the Attorney General to revoke firearms and explosives licenses and permits held by individuals determined to be engaged in terrorism.

Nancy Pelosi on Thursday, used parliamentary procedure to force a vote on legislation banning gun purchases by people on the terrorist watch list.  It was Republican Peter King who introduced the bill.  Matt Fuller of the Huffington Post penned an article, “House Democrats Hijack Floor for Gun Vote.”  Fuller neglected to highlight the fact that a Republican set the stage for it.

Once again we are “treated” to the results of the system: pseudo-bipartisan government,the illusion of a two-party system.  Substantiating this concept are the continuous closed-door meetings, the latest being Paul Ryan’s with Pelosi regarding the coming Syrian “refugee” influx into the U.S.  Recall, readers: this sort of thing was vividly exemplified in 2009 when Olympia Snow (R, ME) performed similar “functions” as King that enabled Obamacare to come to the floor of the Senate for consideration and eventual voting.

Pelosi’s resolution is a 439-word diatribe that flaunts the term “assault weapons” in one paragraph while unwittingly stating the duties Congressmen are not performing in the next paragraph, that reads:

“Whereas the first duty of Members of Congress is to protect and defend the American people…”

The subsequent paragraph convicts Congress and the Administration:

“Whereas leaders of terrorist organizations have previously urged sympathizers to exploit the United States’ lax gun laws in order to perpetrate domestic terror.”

Interesting and true.  Nothing could be closer to the point that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, hosted functions at the White House where theMuslim Brotherhood and other Al Qaeda operatives were hosted, feted, and recognized.  The Administration enabled the creation of ISIS and all of their currentactivities both domestically and abroad.  Let us not forget it was the Administration, not the Second Amendment, that illegally created Operation Fast and Furious leading to the death of a Border Patrol Agent.  Should this not mean that the Administration and its agents will now be required to turn it all explosives and firearms, as they “perpetrate domestic terror” through such actions?

Gun-control measures are crucial to the Administration and the Congress according to this “terror watch list,” because it is a list that is subject to the Attorney General (the President’s Attorney General), and can be kept out of the public eye with the subjectively-interpreted claim of being “in the interests of national security.”

Now the Administration is augmenting these efforts with an attempt to do it with aid and complicity of State governors, supported by Executive Orders.  All throughout this process we see Republicans caving in and proving that there really are only interests of parties, and not true political parties.  We are seeing the completedissolution of checks and balances.  We are witnessing the erosion of the Constitution incrementally.

Soon Obama will take even further steps, justifying his actions by “Executive Orders” penned illegally, as they are onerous to the Constitution (in accordance with Marbury vs. Madison).  Obama is creating illegal laws under the color of law, and tying all of this in with the treaties his agent, Kerry has signed toward eventual gun confiscation with UN approval.  Day by day, step by step, and inch by inch the agenda is being pushed.  The question is if we the people are ever going to push in the opposite direction, and if so, when?

Yet the very fact that Peter King would introduce a bill that infringes at all the inhierant right to self-defense through firearms, defines him as a disgrace to to this Nation. IMO 

Since every elected serpent takes an oath to defend the Constitution, this amounts to treason by King and any member of congress who votes for it.  Once again we see the gop for what they are, communists disguised as conservatives who collude with the communists in the dnc to destroy our Constitution in increments as the article states.

When will We the People wake up and charge these traitors with Treason? Execution is too good for these low life scum, but that is the punishment by law.

As I understand it, King introduced this bill way  back in 2007.     obummer is my least favorite

person and I very seldom this is the one exception that I do agree with him.    Its ludacrus to allow

persons on the no fly list go into a store and purchase a weapon.     On the other hand I find it

offensive for persons on the no fly list be allowed to purchase weapons after a background check.

A background check should, in itself by vertue of the fact that the individual is on the no fly list,

make the individual enelagable to pass the screening.    Who does these background checks

anyway??????      I believe its the FBI

That will be easy enough for them. All Homeland Security has to do is to put all Tea Party Patriots on the No Fly List!

As long as all politicians are on the watch list, I am OK with it.

Unless they happen to be Muslims.

Maybe, just Maybe if the DOJ is making up the No Fly List, everyone in the Tea Party will be on the no fly list.

Now we have 2 governments, the illegitimate one run by tyrants and the lawful one "of, by and for the people."  Which one will we follow, support, pay taxes to, etc.?  Time to make some hard decisions, right?

Offense is best defense! 

I have been preaching the fact that GOP fingerprints are all over Obamacare despite their virtuous claim that no GOP voted for it. Finally someone else has brought it up, if Snow had not voted it out of committee to "debate it" it would have died in committee. Notice GOP today dancing around any genuine attempt to repeal the bill? We are still being snookered by the rino GOPe in Congress. Trump is just the first step some way a conservative congress has to be brought about

Who makes this list and what criteria do they use ? Every conservative, individualism believing person will be on this list.

The only exceptions for addition to this list would be muslims.

This another of the ongoing disgrace of this current regime.

ALERT ALERT

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
