A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
I want to clear the air, to explain something that ought not need explaining, but apparently does.
America's Founding Fathers did not create the 2nd Amendment to make the country safe for hunters and sportsmen. The right to keep and bear arms was guaranteed American citizens to provide them/us the means to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government that we might some day be dumb enough to elect to office.
Of course, we KNOW that will, ahem, never happen, right?
OK. Moving right along ...
One other thing: The Second Amendment is "the guarantor" of all the other amendments, too. Without the Second Amendment, the Constitution and the the Bill of Rights would not be worth the paper (or parchment) they are written on.
I mean, come ON folks! Consider how the Constitution and the Bill of Rights have been devalued today, especially under the communist regime of Obama and the CUDS Party. (CUDS Party = Communist/Union/Democrat/Socialist Party)
Look. Gun owners in America know they are under threat from the Obama Regime. They KNOW THAT! They are moving quietly and quickly to preserve their personal armories.
Why, a strange thing is happening nationwide. Guns are just disappearing. Yes. They are being lost, somewhere, somehow.
Laugh, if you will, but gun owners have told me how their own weapons are, uh, going missing. Come to think of it, I think I might be missing a semi-automatic, or two. Humm.
Not to worry, though. I expect that when trouble begins those missing weapons will turn up in a cache somewhere in the midst of a swamp or the deep woods.
I have no doubt, at all, that the Obama Administration will make a move to strip Americans of guns -- and soon. First it was necessary for him to regain the Office in a second term in which he would be immune from the anger of the voters. He has now done that. The door is now wide open and I fully expect him to step through it, the narcissistic ideologue that he is. He can't help himself.
Back in 2011 it was reported: "March 30, 2011, according to The Washington Post, Sarah Brady—head of the gun-ban lobby formerly known as Handgun Control, Inc.—met with President Obama, who she said brought up the issue of gun control “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda.”
According to Brady, as reported by the Post, President Obama told her, “I just want you to know that we are working on it,” and “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.” SOURCE: http://www.nrapublications.org/index.php/11920/obamas-secret-plan-to-destroy-the-second-amendment-by-2016/
You may recall that just days after his reelection Obama signaled the UN that his administration WOULD support the UN Small Arms Treaty. I'm convinced it's a part of Obama's plan.
Look for American gun owners to be hit from every direction when they make their move -- legislation, Presidential Executive Orders, international treaties, healthcare (as in Obamacare) -- the works!
I would suggest Americans be mindful of Presidential Executive Orders to such agencies as Department of Homeland Security, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, -- and -- let us not overlook Obamacare. See, the medical costs of gun violence WILL become an immediate healthcare problem in America.
We recommend you take a look at The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Section 2716. The folks at Ammoland.com had this to say on their site: "... as the law requires Americans’ medical information to be culled and entered into a national database.
Centralizing these medical records will allow the FBI to troll a list of Americans for ailments such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to deny them their gun rights, in the same way that the Veterans Administration has already denied more than 150,000 veterans their right to bear arms."

Look. I'm old enough to remember that back in the bad ole days of the Soviet Union, if you did not agree with THEIR socialist government you were ruled mentally ill by government doctors and sent away to "hospitals" where you were "brainwashed" until you DID agree with the Socialist government of the USSR.
Now that we have our own socialist government AND socialized medicine here in the good ole US of A, what makes you think it will be any different here, huh?
Rest assured that at some point, in the not too distant future, there will be an incident in which large numbers of people will be victims of gun violence. THAT will be the catalyst, the trigger, to unleash the gun control tsunami. The Obama Regime never allows a good crisis to go to waste, even if THEY have to create the crisis.
The Obama assault on the Second Amendment is coming as surely as day follows night. If you don't believe that -- then you're kidding yourself.
You see -- the left MUST relieve us of our weapons to assure Obama a third term. It's really quite simple.
