Bloomberg is at it againLiberals in places like New York, Boston and Washington D.C. are riding high on the passage of President Obama's health care reform bill. Emboldened by their backdoor success, liberal leaders are already setting their sights on the next round of political priorities.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun front group Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) have sent the White House and Congressional leaders a 40-point report outlining the anti-gun measures they would like make into law.
You might be saying to yourself, "We've heard this song before, right?" Wrong.
The anti-gun elitist have changed their tactics. Instead of trying to pass legislation through Congress, they want these changes made by regulation and executive order.
Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun stooges want to bypass the elected representatives of the people and allow unelected bureaucrats in the Obama Administration to violate your Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.
Bloomberg's plan includes the creation of a Federal task force of over seven different agencies from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the White House Office of Budget and Management.
Elements of the proposal, which is titled "A blueprint for Federal Action on illegal guns", includes a laundry list of anti-gun measures.
Just some of the proposed changes in regulation include:
- Bans on the importation of "non-sporting use" firearms
- Restructuring and expanding the authority of the radically anti-gun and out-of-control BATFE
- Mandatory federal "lock-up your safety" regulations
- Surprise "residency" checks on buyers who purchase multiple guns
- REAL ID and biometric validation of firearms purchaser information
- Increasing paperwork and hurdles for gun dealers to jump through
Simply put, the anti-gun lobby is trying to push its unconstitutional wish list through the federal bureaucracy and away from the eyes of voters across the country. Rest assured, the National Association for Gun Rights will do everything in its power to expose this outrageous, backdoor attempt to force gun control upon the American people. You can read the full text of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns proposal, here. If you think this is outrageous as I do, drop by the National Association for Gun Rights blog, and join the conversation.
