Help GOA Stop Obama’s Anti-gun Legacy
“Never tell me the odds.” – Han Solo in The Empire Strikes Back
Washington, DC -(AmmoLand.com)- On January 4, the President of the United States declared war on gun owners.
His lawless, anti-gun power-grab potentially threatens every gun owner in the country. It represents one of the boldest executive actions against gun owners in history. First, there’s his efforts to turn collectors and hobbyists into “gun dealers.”
This would take us back to the “bad old days” in which the ATF tried to imprison collectors who sold only a couple of firearms. Under Obama’s new amorphous standards, even the sale of a single gun could land you in prison. On one hand, Obama wants to turn collectors and hobbyists into “gun dealers.” On the other hand, under Clinton-era policies, he won’t give licenses to collectors and hobbyists without “bricks-and-mortar” storefronts.
So the liar-in-chief is trying to set a trap in which collecting firearms is effectively outlawed. Second, there’s Obama’s 200 new ATF agents proposed, not to arrest the violent drug dealers he wants to release on the streets, but rather to feed more 4473’s into Obama’s burgeoning national gun registry.
Then there are the efforts to:
- Use taxpayer dollars to develop “smart gun” technology, which would ultimately be required;
- Slap gun loss reporting requirements on the gun industry that could easily entrap large dealers; and
- Impose new rules to strip 4.2 million seniors of their gun collections.
Obama has declared war on gun owners. It’s now time to strike back.
