2nd Amendment - WARNING: Gun Future Bleak because of Barack Obama & ATF

 Evans Law of Inadequate Paranoia:
"No matter how bad you think something is, when you look into it, it's always worse."
 -- M. Stanton Evans,
      author "Black Listed by History, The Untold Story of Senator Joseph McCarthy" (published 2007)  source: Glenn Beck TV show, Th.24Jun10 interview (
"If you were a liberal 20 years ago, without changing your positions on any issues, today you would be a conservative." -- KD, 2010

 My Sentiments: Soon, What We All (Are?) Will Be Doing .

     Americans continue to watch their Second Amendment rights diminish, this time as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives ( still known as ATF) launches a campaign to change the definition of "shotgun."  According to the blog Beregond's Bar, a recently released study by the Bureau will ultimately make shotguns illegal, and may also have negative implications for all guns.
 The ATF states that the purpose of the study is to "establish criteria that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives will use to determine the importability of certain shotguns under the provisions of the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA) - [which] generally [prohibit] the importation of firearms into the United States."
     The study focuses specifically on the sporting purposes of shotguns, just as the ATF 1998 survey provided guidelines for determining the sporting purposes of rifles. 
     Beregond's Bar notes, "Sporting is one of the three main thrusts of gun control efforts in America.  The other two are racism and those who openly advocate complete bans except for military and police."
     Providing background on how sporting criteria is often utilized to advance gun control, Beregond's Bar explains:
     Sporting use was how the original distinction was made about what weapons would be subject to a special tax in the National Firearms Act (NFA) in 1934, and again in Title II of the Gun Control Act of 1968.   The congressional power to tax was used selectively to make ownership of weapons the government didn't like burdensome and expensive.  This was gun control via the back door, as even the ATF admits.  As would become the pattern, politicians found that actually dealing with crime and criminals was difficult and expensive.  Blaming guns and passing a law to look like they were doing something about it was much simpler.
     Declaring that activities that were "generally recognized" as legitimate "sporting purposes in previous studies are not necessarily the same as those activities that are generally recognized as sporting purposes in the modern era," the study outlines a number of features of shotguns wherein "sporting use" cannot apply, many of which are common in hunting and self-defense:
    • Folding, telescoping, or collapsible stocks;
     bayonet lugs;
     • flash suppressors;
     • magazines over 5 rounds, or a drum magazine;
     • grenade-launcher mounts;
     • integrated rail systems (other than on top of the receiver or barrel);
     • light enhancing devices;
     • excessive weight (greater than 10 pounds for 12 gauge or smaller);
     • excessive bulk (greater than 3 inches in width and/or greater than 4 inches in depth);
     • forward pistol grips or other protruding parts designed or used for gripping the shotgun with the shooter's extended hand.
     The study concludes that there should be a "limited exception to the general prohibition on the importation of firearms without placing any undue or unnecessary Federal restrictions of burdens on law-abiding citizens with respect to the acquisition, possession, or use of firearms."  Though the ATF contends that its determinations will have no impact on "true sporting shotguns," it admits that they will "certainly prevent the importation of certain shotguns."
     The study also recommends that "sporting determinations for shotguns not specifically addressed by this study be reviewed by a panel pursuant to ATF orders, policies and procedures, as appropriate."
     According to Beregond's Bar, however, the intentions are far more sinister than the study purports: "The Obama administration is seeking once again to do via regulation what they would never be able to do via legislation."
     Beregond's Bar notes that while there are a number of objections to be raised over the study, including its method of determining "true sporting shotguns," the greatest objection is how the criteria measure up to the Constitution:
     But there is a far more basic objection that must be raised to this new attempt at regulatory gun ban -  Nowhere in the constitution of the United States is there anything about a "sporting purpose."  The second amendment says:   A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
     Like all rights of Americans, the rights exist because you are a person.  The Constitution is a contract we have with the central government to protect those rights against all enemies, foreign and domestic.  One of the enumerated rights is the right to keep and bear arms.  Nary a "sporting purpose" in sight in the entire document.  So where did it come from?
     A sporting requirement certainly seemed to be the last thing on the mind of George Mason, co-author of the Second Amendment, who observed, "I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best way and most effectual way to enslave them."
     While Second Amendment rights are already at risk from this study, as shotguns may be banned as a result of its determinations, Beregond's Bar contends that the "sporting use" definition found in the study could eventually be applied to all guns:
     One factor that jumps out from the current ATF study is that it differs from the Clinton gun ban in a critical way.  The Clinton ban looked at [a gun] and said if it could accept a high capacity magazine and had any 2 other characteristics then it was banned.  Thus you could have a magazine and a pistol grip, or a magazine and night sights, and still be legal.  Few people missed having a bayonet lug, and grenade launchers and grenades had essentially been banned from civilian hands since the NFA became law in 1934.  The current study says that if any ONE item is on a list, including a magazine that holds more than five rounds or a place to attach a flashlight so you can see the burglar in your home, then the gun is banned.
     So the problem doesn't end with shotguns.
     It seems that proponents of gun control lack a fundamental understanding of the Second Amendment and the dignity it provides the American people as it affirms their last line of defense against tyranny.  George Washington emphasized the importance of firearms and their assurance of liberty when he said, "Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence - from the hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable - the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good."
     The variety of "acceptable" firearms, however, continues to decline via federal government regulation.

From: Second Amendment Foundation Sent: Thursday, April 14, 2011 Subject: Gun Future Bleak because of Barack Obama
     Whenever a president and an administration are as ANTI-GUN as the current one, it is time for Gun Rights defenders to literally fight back. It is past time for all of our voices to be heard from coast-to-coast. I really need your assistance today; so please, read every word of this all-out, important email. Thank you.
     You are part of a great movement that is very much alive and well in this beloved country of ours. While other organizations and the economy are seemingly at a standstill, the 80,000,000-plus STRONG gun owners in the United States are aligning together as we gain momentum to fight this anti-gun administration.
     I cannot recall a more ANTI-GUN administration in my lifetime. That is why we must stand together, linking arms, to help insure our political clout---and most importantly, our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights to own a gun.
     This is not about some far-out idea of doing away with guns; this is what Barack Obama wishes he could pass during his time in office---getting rid of gun ownership. And it's all about government control and how Mr. Obama can control YOU---and your guns! At the Second Amendment Foundation, we will not permit this to happen. So please, on behalf of an estimated 80 million gun owners in the United States, help us to win this battle.
     Gun owners must unite and work together in this all-out battle to KEEP our guaranteed freedoms. It's us versus them. And I believe in and have faith in the American people and the American patriots, such as you, to help preserve this right to keep and bear arms.
     Today's gun rights movement perhaps best typifies the "big tent" inside of which there may sometimes be discord and lively debate, but ultimately we all want the same thing:

The free exercise of our constitutionally-protected fundamental civil right to keep and bear arms.
     On behalf of YOU and thousands of other gun owners, SAF will continue to work hard to defend your gun rights. We cannot rest until we know that others are WORKING HARD on behalf of our right for our guns to defend our families.
     It should be no surprise that local organizations devoted to protecting and promoting gun rights---especially in the wake of the 2008 Heller ruling and the 2010 McDonald decision by the U.S. Supreme Court---have been springing up, growing in numbers and gaining political clout.
     Thank you for putting your faith and trust in the Second Amendment Foundation. We have always been on the literal "frontlines" of what is happening to protect your freedoms, especially to own a gun.
     YOUR Second Amendment Foundation brought the landmark case of McDonald v. City of Chicago to the high court with the cooperation of the Illinois State Rifle Association. I have witnessed this surge in gun rights interests with delight. Today, SAF is proudly involved in legal actions with several grassroots organizations, challenging onerous state and local gun laws.
     For example, SAF is cooperating with Grass Roots North Carolina, a pro-gun-rights organization, in a challenge of North Carolina's emergency powers statute that allows the governor or local officials to suspend Second Amendment rights outside of the home during a declared emergency.
     In California, SAF has partnered with the CalGuns Foundation on several lawsuits to protect the rights of gun owners.
     Our lawsuit against a discretionary---and essentially discriminatory---gun permit law in Maryland has gotten financial support from Maryland Shall Issue. Likewise, a SAF lawsuit against a similar law in New York's Westchester County is being supported by Long Island Firearms and the Shooters Committee On Political Education (SCOPE).
     Our newest legal challenges to anti-gun rights laws against the state of New Jersey and New York City were filed with local plaintiffs, the New Jersey Association of Rifle and Pistol Clubs and the New York Rifle and Pistol Association.
     In short: Grassroots gun rights groups are gaining national momentum! That's why we need your support today.
     I have been proud when SAF and our sister organization, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, have fought side-by-side on such major issues as the lawsuit against New Orleans to stop gun confiscations after Hurricane Katrina. We invariably shared credit for that effort, and our joint lawsuits against attempted gun bans in the cities of San Francisco and Seattle. We look forward to more such actions, because we have yet to lose one of these cooperative cases in court.
     We are very pleased to work with local grassroots organizations. We operate, and cooperate, under no illusions. Fighting to protect existing gun rights and regain those we have lost is a job that will require grassroots activism as well as a strong unified national voice. 
     This emergence of pro-gun grassroots organizations evidently surprises the mainstream press, which has long believed that only one organization spoke for gun owners and lobbies on their behalf. It's comforting to know that alternate gun rights groups including state-level concealed and open carry organizations, and groups fashioning themselves after the Virginia Citizens' Defense League, Gun Owners' Action League of Massachusetts, Ohioans for Concealed Carry and Buckeye Firearms Association, Arizona Citizens Defense League, the Montana Sport Shooting Association and Oregon Firearms Federation, have risen to handle their own affairs rather than depend entirely on a national association to do their bidding.
     This presents no small dilemma for the media, and for gun prohibitionist groups that have long tried to demonize the so-called "gun lobby" as a monolithic organization. Instead of a lobby, the emergence of various strong local gun groups is a movement with a broad and diverse membership representing all walks of life, all races, professions and genders. It is very difficult to demonize a movement that represents a cross-section of Americana. Will you assist us in our nationwide efforts to unite these various organizations into "ONE VOICE" for gun ownership? 
     No president has ever been as ANTI-GUN and vindictive to gun owners like Barack Obama. He wants to have the power to:
  1. Extend waiting periods
  2. Increase federal fees on guns and ammunition
  3. Ban guns that are imported
  4. Make it illegal to own a gun if you smoke or use tobacco products
  5. Ban the use of guns on all government property
     The mainstream media and gun-hating editorialists can no longer take the lazy approach by simply heaping scorn on one or two large pro-gun groups, as some sort of evil lock-step enterprise. These gun prohibitionists are now facing a much larger and formidable pro-gun front, along with other strong and vocal national and local groups on the flanks. Gun owners realize we are all in this together, and that's the only way we will restore those rights that have been eroded: TOGETHER!
        We need your donation to stay in this all-out battle for your gun rights. Please help us today?
     I look forward to hearing from you shortly, so we can make sure that our Second Amendment rights belong to US! Please give the largest gift that you possibly can to SAF. Please help us to STOP this Obama government takeover, anti-gun policy that is in DIRECT CONFLICT with our United States Constitution. 80,000,000 gun-owner voices cannot be ignored!
Respectfully, Alan M. Gottlieb, Chairman, Second Amendment Foundation

And, thank you, in advance, for your donation.   Please CLICK HERE to give a special DONATION to Second Amendment Foundation as we continue to "lock-arms" with other pro-gun lobbyists, to combat this anti-gun administration.
