Gun violence lowest since 1960s, except in gun free zones
March 30, 2013
With a looming gun control vote in the Democratic controlled Senate, scheduled for next month, the Obama Administration is realizing its dream of greater gun control legislation may have been just that – a dream.
The reason being is that whatever bill the Senate puts together, the odds are that Republicans in the House, most of whom have been undeterred by Obama’s Twitter bots harassing their accounts daily, will likely mark the legislation dead on arrival.
Even the Democrats’ top man in the Senate, Harry Reid, recently admitted that even among Democrats in his chamber, the bill probably won’t have enough support to pass.
Still yet, a defiant President Obama is pressing forward with his gun control agenda with or without their help – via executive order.
According to a recent report published by The Hill, “The president has used his executive powers to bolster the national background check system, jump start government research on the causes of gun violence and create a million-dollar ad campaign…”
These steps have enabled federal law enforcement officials to have unprecedented access to many state records, previously locked away from their eyes due to the nation’s longstanding tradition of separation of powers – giving federal agents access to many state records that detail just who in our nation owns a firearm and how many.
Other steps have included eliminating many of the road blocks that presently prevent state governments from notifying the federal government of individuals suspected or deemed to be mentally unstable. This again gives the federal government more power to investigate, restrict and even detain such individuals.
Earlier this month, the DOJ announced a $20 million grant program aimed at incentivizing many of the red states who have previously refused to surrender their records to the NICS database.
“The economy is bad and all governments, state and local, are strapped for cash. Unlike the federal government, states can’t print their own money, so they need revenue badly. The Obama Administration knows this and is dangling a pretty lucrative carrot in front of some of the states hardest hit,” notes one political commentator.
Republicans argue that the President is not interested in merely preventing mass gun violence, as he is maintaining, but rather that he has his eyes set on restricting legal gun owners from fully enjoying their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
They point to studies the Obama administration has ordered the Consumer Product Safety Commission to conduct, studying whether new trigger lock laws should be implemented.
Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday the expected upcoming Senate votes on gun control are only the beginning of the White House’s fight.
Presently, the fate of gun control legislation is unclear. A vote on a Senate bill, including expanded background checks and harsher penalties for gun trafficking, is expected next month.
The White House also has been pushing for limits on military style assault weapons and high capacity magazines, but those provisions won’t be part of the Senate bill. Instead they are to be offered as amendments. Admendments that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid believes do not enjoy enough support to pass.
“That doesn’t mean this is the end of the process. This is the beginning of the process,” Biden said during a conference call organized by Mayors Against Illegal Guns pushing for the gun control measures.
Obama Is Foaming At The Mouth Waiting To Declare A State Of National Emergency
It is no secret that we have a President in office who is a known socialist. He has been linked to big name marxists like Bill Ayers and Frank Marshall Davis. His parents taught him to hate “colonial” America.
He has also been linked to people like George Soros whose lifelong ambition is one world government. Obama is currently in support of a United Nations Small Arms Treaty that even many of his fellow Democrats oppose.
We have all heard of the massive DHS build up of ammunition, AR-15s and MRAPs. We have heard the numbers and The Department of Homeland Security now has enough bullets to kill each of us 5 to 6 times over. Alex Jones says six times over but even five times is enough. These are not false reports. These claims can be verified through a government website that advertises open bid opportunities for those who do business, or seek to do business, with the federal government.For any of you who may doubt me, that website can be found here. This is exactly where the info is coming from that you read in the conservative media.
I have two personal sources in the Western States that have kept me abreast of several happenings with the DHS and FEMA. There is a massive push to cross train these agents in various pursuits. They have recently been involved in urban combat training with those AR-15s. Many of them are being licensed to drive the big DHS buses now (rather than using private contractors as has been done in the past). There has even been some speculation about DHS or FEMA agents being taught to fly planes as of late. I have seen the pictures. I have them in my possession in fact, but I won’t show them to you without first asking my source, and it’s 4 AM. It’s not going to happen this time. Something big is brewing but none of us can truly know for sure what it is or when it will happen.
I have read the articles from DHS Informer like most of you and I don’t know if they are credible or not. The conversations seem a bit scripted to me. But whether they are real, or fiction, does not really matter. We all know that something is in the works. We would have to be blind not to see it.
A common belief in America is that The DHS has become Obama’s “Secret Police.” Why would we think any differently? 10,000 marines are given a pink-slip and DHS buys 1.6 billion bullets. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see where the priorities lie.
So how does all of this tie together?
My theory is that they are just waiting for the right event to trigger a “national security emergency” so they can declare martial law. I can not know if a real emergency will occur or if the Obama Administration is deceitful enough to throw a false flag at us, but I do know that something will happen.
If nothing else, a Facebook Group is planning an ARMED march on Washington D.C. for July 4th. That would easily be enough to trigger a drastic change in our country. Why? You can not “open carry” or “conceal” in Washington D.C. Both are very much against the laws there.
Furthermore I have talked to two individuals who have told me that they, even though this march is being promoted as “peaceful,” will be looking for an excuse to open fire. This can not end well. People will either be in jail or in body bags. Their interpretation of the second amendment may be correct, but it will not keep them from being arrested in Washington D.C. and all it takes is one person who doesn’t want to be cuffed, and… You know what will happen.
I need people to understand how this ties together and to understand that this was probably planned last year. In my estimation, President Obama was laying the groundwork for the days to come back in 2012. I am pulling a few paragraphs from something I wrote several months ago, so you can follow my logic.
President Barack Obama signed two executive orders in 2012 that could literally leave the American people without communication lines and without basic necessities in the case of a national security emergency.
The first was on March 16, 2012.
“On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.
The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security. The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order’s functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations.” -Source http://ivn.us/2012/07/15/obama-declares-media-dictatorship-in-new-executive-order/
What does this mean? In a case of national security emergency the government could literally claim control of things like fuel, food, water and electricity. It gets worse…
The second executive order was signed on July 6th, 2012.
“Without even the faintest toot of a fanfare, President Barack Obama has issued an Executive Order that outlines an extreme level of communications preparedness in case of crisis or emergency, including the ability to take over any communication network, including the internet.” Source: http://ivn.us/2012/07/15/obama-declares-media-dictatorship-in-new-executive-order/
Our government, literally, now has the authority to take control of cellular services, landlines, and the internet.
So what does all of this mean to us? In my opinion it means that we must be prepared. If you think that, if and when civil unrest breaks out, you will be able to log onto Facebook or call your cousin with the military-type arsenal in his basement, you may be sadly mistaken. You may not even have basic necessities like water, food and electricity.
I do not have a crystal ball and I do not know how it is going to go down. But I do know that I find it rather convenient that both of those executive orders were signed last year. Obama either saw a revolution coming or he planned a revolution. Whichever is the case does not really matter.
What does matter is that the proverbial S could HTF at any time. We don’t have to be the people who are ready to start a revolution to get caught up in one. For this reason, myself and 10,000 of my friends are asking you to join us to prepare for the worst. We are not planning any kind of rebellion but we are preparing for how we will react if the fight comes to us.
This is not a group of gun-toting-swollen-red-neck-rebels. We represent a real slice of Americana. We have single parents who are scared to death. We have people who support the second amendment but are too poor to buy a gun. We have retired people who are disabled. We have military men and women. We are no different than your own home town with one exception. There are no liberals here. Some have tried to come into our haven but our administrators will not tolerate them for long.
We started this movement two days ago, in total desperation to organize quickly. We have people who are teaching others about Ham Radios and survival. We have people teaching others about virtually everything you need to know if the situation becomes hostile. None of us want that to happen. We just want to be prepared if it does.
The biggest benefit to our network, and the reason it is growing so quickly, is simply that people need to know people in their own area. The idea started after many conversations with those who felt alone and did not know what they would do in case of an emergency. Our goal is to grow our group large enough that you will have many people, in your local area, who you can lean on if times get tough in America.
It is my belief that this day is coming sooner rather than later, but even if I am wrong…it certainly does not hurt to be prepared. If you feel the way I feel then please join us. It takes less than a minute. As of now we have ten regions and we will begin to break down into smaller regions as our numbers grow. I have met some incredible people over the last two days and I hope to meet you soon as well.
Here is a list of groups. Please join the group in your area. If you need to join more than one, it is OK. In my case I am in “region 6″ but only 20 minutes from people in “region 7.”
Join us now while there is still time.

GOP congressman threatens impeachment if Obama uses executive action for gun control
www.dailycaller.com – Caroline May
Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman threatened Monday afternoon that he would file articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama if he institutes gun control measures with an executive order.
Stockman warned that such executive orders would be “unconstitutional” and “infringe on our constitutionally-protected right to keep and bear arms.”
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment,” Stockman said in a statement.
At his press conference Monday, Obama floated the possibility of using executive action to enact policies aimed at reducing gun violence.
The freshman congressman, who served one term in Congress in the mid-1990s, further labeled the possibility “an existential threat to this nation” because, he said, the purpose of the Second Amendment is to allow the people to protect themselves from tyranny.
“Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible,” he added. “Under no circumstances whatsoever may the government take any action that disarms any peaceable person — much less without due process through an executive declaration without a vote of Congress or a ruling of a court.”
He concluded by claiming that an executive order would be not just “not just an attack on the Constitution,” but also an “attack on Americans.”
“If the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively ceased to exist,” he said.
