No Fly No Buy: Obama’s Last Ditch Effort to Cripple the Second Amendment

obama-bans-ar15-bulletsBy Joshua Krause

There’s one thing that all gun-grabbing politicians have in common. They are all quite adamant that they don’t want to take your guns. They’ll tell you over and over again that all they want is a few reasonable regulations. Every once in a blue moon they’ll let their guard down in front of an reporter, and reveal their true long-term intentions, but by and large they’re always trying to put a reassuring face on their gun grabbing agenda.

Obama, for instance, has consistently claimed throughout his presidency that all he wants is a few “reasonable” restrictions, and that all he intends to do is keep guns out of the hands of “bad guys.” Whenever he talks about it, however, you can read between the lines and find his ulterior motives.

At a recent Town Hall meeting, Obama was put on the spot by gun store owner, who asked him why he wants to restrict gun use for law-abiding citizens. The video has since gone viral among liberals who think that the president gave a stellar response. In reality, he merely showed us his true colors.

“First of all, the notion that I or Hillary or Democrats or whoever you want to choose are hell-bent on taking away folks’ guns is just not true,” he claims “And I don’t care how many times the NRA says it.” Obama then goes on to make the case for restricting gun ownership for people who find themselves on the no-fly list, and cites an example of someone who has been visiting ISIS websites but is still allowed to buy firearms.

So sir I just have to say respectfully, that there is a way for us to have common sense gun laws. There is a way for us to make sure that lawful responsible gun owners like yourself, are able to use them for sporting, hunting, protecting yourself. But the only way we’re going to do that is if we don’t have a situation in which anything that is proposed is viewed as some tyrannical destruction of the Second Amendment.

Unfortunately, his idea to restrict gun ownership for people on the no-fly list is exactly the kind of thing that could lead to the tyrannical destruction of the Second Amendment. In a perfect world it would be nice if we could keep guns away from terrorists, but restricting the gun rights of people who are on the no-fly list is anything but reasonable or “common sense.”

That’s because literally anyone can find themselves on the no-fly list. You don’t have to commit a crime and you don’t need to visit any suspicious websites. They can take away your right to travel freely without any due process whatsoever. At best, all the government needs to do is hear that you might have some sympathies for a terrorist organization, and you’ll be barred from being on a plane for life.

As pointed out last year, more than a third of the people on the no-fly list have no known terrorist affiliations. If Obama’s plan were ever put in place, you could lose your right to bear arms over nothing more than a hunch or a rumor.

Leaks to the Intercept revealed that the “process” by which people are put on either the no fly list or the terrorist watch list basically involves hunches, and revelations from just a few months ago show that DHS still uses flim flam pseudo science to put people on the list based on hunches that the government laughably calls “predictive judgment,” but which experts have said has no scientific basis whatsoever.

If you want to understand how incredibly wrong this proposal is, you just need to replace “buy guns” with something else, like “the right to assemble” or “the right to use the internet.” It’s easy to say: “What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to use the internet?” But then you remember that these aren’t actual suspects — they’re just people put on a list by law enforcement with no thorough process, let alone due process to defend themselves or to get off the list. And, of course, being a “suspect” doesn’t mean you’re guilty. Innocent until proven guilty used to actually mean something.

And let’s not forget, that our government has a very broad definition of “terrorist,” and has in the past claimed that conservatives, libertarians, veterans, and Christians should be watched closely for their supposed terrorist potential (i.e., the groups that are most likely to own firearms).

Sorry Obama, but you’re a gun grabber plain and simple. At best, perhaps, you’re ignorant of what your proposal could do to our rights, and at worse you’re lying to the American people. You know exactly what a “no-buy list” would lead to. Furthermore, the fact that more guns were sold during your administration than any other in history does not prove that you’re not trying to take our guns, it’s only proof that you’ve failed to take them. You can sugarcoat your anti-Second Amendment vision, and claim that you just want to make us all a little safer, but we know what your ideas would do to our rights.

  1. We know what Obama’s plan is and that was strongly emphasised when H. Clinton was caught on an open mic saying it is going to be her mission to end gun ownership. She has already stated if she makes it to the Oval Office she plans to carry on the “good”?? work Obama has begun.
    When the citizenry loses its right to own guns that is when the liberals, AKA democrats, will begin striping us of all our constitutional rights.
    They will have reduced us to the same rock throwing protesters we see in all the socialistic countries that are gun free today.

    • Some say they’ve already stripped us of our rights and gun ownership is the last nail in the coffin.

    • Bernie is a socialist and he is pro gun so you mean the neo liberals and most 3rd world countries are capitalistic

      • No he means socialist

        • And I’m saying its the neo liberal corporate puppets like Clinton and Obama as well as the gop aka modern fascists who are a threat to your rights not the socialist Bernie since he is pro gun as well as for other rights any socialist who is against gun rights isnt a real socialist cus socialism is for the people aka society

  2. Then in Obama’s world, only radical Muslims, his people, would be banned from owning firearms. The rest of us, should have nothing to fear. Right?

  3. Beautiful shot. Obama is thinking “If it weren’t for these things, we’d have ’em right where we want ’em.

    There is almost a gun for every citizen and if Trump is elected, it’s gonna get even better.

  4. If Obama were Caucasian, I’d still hate him for what he has done to our country. He’s nothing but a disgraced attorney., Muslim sympathizer, Liar & Traitor. His advertising campaign to repeal or restrict our rights under the 2nd Amendment have failed. The NRA may be an asset but it is the PEOPLE who won’t allow or participate in ‘new’ regulations.
    At the 2016 U.S. Air Force Graduation ceremony, Obama made the statement that ” …the Senate should push through Congress the “Law of the Sea”. That is Admiralty Law, pure and simple, and has NOTHING to do with the Freedoms and Rights of the People. The “law of the sea” pertains to Only the Military and Corporations. In this sense, Obama is advocating the Overthrow of the U.S. Constitution & Amendments in favor of a Socialist – Military Constitution. Traitors are to be Executed says U.S. Law & the Act of 1871.

    • We Already Have Admiralty Law With All The Yellow Tinged Flags In The Scribe/Lawyers Courtrooms.

      • You’re correct. That’s why I noted the Act of 1871 in my initial comment. All of our Military personnel, Courts, Politicians, pledge their allegiance to the Constitutional Act of 1871.

  5. He’s such a good puppet.The noname potus married to the queen of genderless bathrooms.
    Funny how the cons (false flags) under his watch made him(her?) a great gun salesman.

  6. the conditions in which you can use your gun today without being thrown in prison would be considered palpably ridiculous by Americans of the 19th century

  7. Albert pike 3 world wars 3rd one between Muslims and Zionist and the other countries will be divided on this issue trump is a part of the problem he setting y’all up for Armageddon aka ww3 destruction of America the modern day Babylon and Obama a Muslim sympathizer come on now thats like calling me a klan member ask one on them Muslims what he think about Obama’s drone strikes then you get the picture

  8. Nothing Happens For A Reason | June 6, 2016 at 4:06 pm |

    I mean it’s heart warming how the NRA stands up for ISIL and al quada lovers who simply need a gun. america is the best country ever.

    Next up: the battle for concealed carry on planes!!!

  9. You got that right! America has been ‘governed’ by Traitors for a long time now.
