URGENT: The Executive Power Play on Gun Control

Published

on

First a Pandemic and now an “Epidemic!”

The President yesterday announced his aggressive SIX STEP plan on “curbing gun violence”, calling it “an Epidemic that has to stop.

He announced this six step plan which includes tighter rules on buyers of home-assembled “ghost guns” {a new scare tactic term for gun parts without serial numbers} and directing the DOJ to reconstruct their policy on the already 3MIL + sold Pistol stabilizing braces (PSB) and already manufactured firearms equipped with the PSB for certain model firearms like the (AR-15). He also directed them to model “red flag” or ERPO legislation for states; funds for community-based violence intervention; an annual report on firearms trafficking and last but not least the Universal Background Checks expansion.

Biden went on to nominate “an avid gun-control guy” David Chipman to be director of the BATFE. Chipman served as an adviser at Giffords, an advocacy group founded by former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot at an Arizona political event in a 2011.

This is an epidemic, for God’s sake,” Biden said. “And it has to stop.”

He called his actions “totally consistent with the Second Amendment.”

Is it Consistent with the Second Amendment?

Not No, but Hell, NO! In fact, when you study this plan in detail it is extremely overreaching for the average law abiding Americans who possess over 390million guns nationwide. Here are some of the reasons why!

  1. Dictating how much ammunition to possess! Read the fine print on this topic.
  2. The expansion of Registering over 3Million firearms with Pistol Stabilizing Braces.
  3. Reframing the definition of “individual gun sales” and “gun show loopholes”.
  4. Incorporating a National “Red Flag Laws” this doesn’t affect the Second Amendment but it damn sure affects the expansion of the fourth amendment. This is alarming.

As we’ve seen over and over again, these measures do nothing to reduce gun violence but they do make people more vulnerable to criminals. People have a right to defend themselves, and the government should have no role in telling people how to do it,”Julie Gunlock, director of the Center for Progress and Innovation stated.

Red Flag Laws- Why this should scare you!

Have you ever heard of someone who had a restraining order on them for some bogus reason and it took them forever to get rid of it, due to a lack of due process or an angry ex lover or horrible neighbor or other family member? Maybe you’ve even seen it in a movie… In my opinion This is the the thought processes behind these overreaching and extremely aggressive Red Flag Laws.

So, here’s why they want to expand the definition of the “Fourth Amendment” which by the way speaks on “Unreasonable Search and Seizures”.  Let’s just say, Bob was overheard arguing with his wife Jane, by their neighbor Sam.  Sam is concerned, he doesn’t know the circumstance and he’s a nosy neighbor anyway, and then he realizes that Bob has an NRA sticker, “Oh, No” he thinks!  Bob, must have guns, and he’s yelling at Jane, I’m concerned that now he may be too angry and he may be a “threat to Jane and my family too”. So, Bob gets a visit from the cops, who come in seize his guns and holds him in jail until it can be sorted out. Bob had a bad day at work and now is in jail due to a nosy neighbor, over reaching laws and a ruined record with no priors and now a destroyed home life.

Now, somehow Bob has to prove his innocence due to this “Preemptive Strike” to thwart crime by a tyrannical government.  Is this a bit far fetched? I don’t think so! Who is to decide that he should have his guns seized, the brand new cop on the scene?

There’s no due process? Of course, even as a prior law enforcement officer, I would want the guns removed first just for scene safety, but what about Bob? Although he had some marital issues that didn’t constitute and domestic violence at all, he is now nearly a felon without having committed a crime due to SUBJECTIVE REASONING AND INTERPRETATION of the law.

Under this “Leaping Logic” as I like to say, nearly anyone can turn anyone in who they think could be a threat! It’s a perfect weapon for ex spouses and bitter friends and family members to cripple a decent citizen. That’s my two cents on that… Bottom line is it may help some but at what is the cost of Freedom to MILLIONS of law abiding Citizens?

Universal Background Checks

Did you know that there is a National Background Check system already in place? It’s called the FBI NICS. This system has been in place for years and every licensed gun dealer across the country MUST use it for EVERY GUN SOLD! If you are 18yrs of age and want to purchase a rifle or shotgun or 21 to purchase a handgun (this is typical in most states like here in Arizona. (Some states are more strict). The point is this disclaimer to the citizenry that guns are being purchased all over the country without background checks is disingenuous and it’s more of the same fear-mongering!

One item I may agree with if I had to give something across the aisle would be for the average joe to do a standard NICS check on guns sold at gun shows.. I am a bit torn when I say that because the Libertarian in me says “NO” to any background checks, and the prior law enforcement side of me says, well, ya never know about some people and a check “MAY” help a bit.

On another note, while I was running Patriot Outdoors in New Mexico for 16+years, we conducted nearly 10-12K background checks in my recollection and out of all of those NICS checks, only 4 turned up to be denials…. Out of those 4 denials, 2 were appealed and were able to purchase their firearms.  What does that tell you? It’s a bad system or maybe just maybe Bad Guys don’t predominately buy guns in legitimate gun stores.

Pistol Stabilizing Braces

What is a Pistol Stabilizing Brace? Well, the  ATF approved such a device in 2013. Since then over 1 million have been manufactured and sold and over 2 million firearms were made incorporating the brace or other variants of it.

Now, with Biden in power, he is so called “weaponizing the ATF” with his liberal agenda and bipartisan appointees to basically go after law abiding citizens who under the law purchased these braces for their guns legally.

By the Way in 2014, the ATF clarified it’s position on PSB’s and said that the brace did not constitute the gun as a Short Barreled Rifle. This was under an Obama Presidency.

Depending on delivery of the law and enforcement could make millions of gun owners felons overnight if they don’t comply with REGISTRATION of their over the counter guns to the NFA and make them Class 3 and pay 200.00 for each brace they have and submit to fingerprints and another background check according to some sources.

for what purpose, now we are saying that due to a few criminal acts all of a sudden millions of gun owners are now affected?How about we enforce the law and throw the book at them for their heinous acts.

“One person’s failure (crime) is not a justification to restrict another person’s liberties!” ~David Bates NH State Representative

The Balance of Freedom & Safety

I am all for safety, I am all for freedom. If you are reading this I can bet that you all are as well. But, we have to have some serious conversations concerning the mentally ill that seem to be trending lately with these heinous acts, but due this with a pragmatic approach to protecting the liberties of the lawful. It is a slippery slope, when we start injecting subjective thinking and “Grey” areas left to interpretation of our daily freedoms.

It is my belief that this is not just a head problem that has caused some of this chaos over the years but a heart problem, a leadership problem, a Virtue Problem. We have allowed our society to embrace so much freedom that we have lost some of our innocence and values that helped create such a beautiful way of American Living.. The Family Unit, The Male Role model for our children and our wives, The Accountability of each other to lift each other up and keep ourselves to standards. It’s okay to be accepting and have tolerance but not so much that we lose our way and with a “laze faire” attitude approach.

Franklin said this:

 

What Can You Do?

You can get involved and get educated.. Most voters, don’t know who or why they are voting until election day! Do your homework, I know of many who didn’t realize the impact and the negative effect of a Biden administration until now! You have to be intentional in this life that we live. Get involved and remember that “We the People” still exist. We are in control of our Government not the other way around. I’d recommend funding organizations that support your beliefs and way of living, locally, regionally and nationally. It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee and not be apathetic to the leadership in office at any level no matter which side of the aisle you are on!

My Thoughts

I fear if we do not step up and speak out, respectfully, intelligently and persistently, we will remain outspoken and our liberties will be decreased for us, for our children and in ultimately reduce the integrity and stability of our great nation”…SD Powell

The Dead Do Tell Tales

The words of Dr. William Maples, in describing typical suicide victims, are poignant

Published

on

It’s shame that the late Jeffrey Epstein, who allegedly hung himself, couldn’t have been examined by Dr. William R. Maples. Epstein’s body would have had a lot to say.

Poignant Words

Apart from the FBI subterfuge surrounding Epstein’s death, I found the words of Dr. Maples, in describing typical suicide victims to be poignant. Maples is a forensic researcher, diagnosing how and when people died. In his book, Dead Men Do Tell Tales, Dr. Maples, he writes, “Many of the skeletons that come into my laboratory belong to suicide victims who behaved like shy hermits in their final hours.”

“Usually they are found in remote places. People often go to some hidden place to kill themselves, whether from a desire to act alone and unhindered, or because they wish simply to disappear in solitude, spending their last moments in reflective silence.”

Would these people have killed themselves if they could’ve regularly attained reflective silence? Was their quest to die alone simply an ill-advised solution to the stresses they faced? How would their lives have been if they knew appropriate, reliable ways to find solace in the here and now, at home, at work, and everywhere in between?

Be True to Yourself

The masses take pills by the boatload. The masses race though their days. The masses, by and large, live lives of tension and turmoil. Stress has become the malady of the generation, and it’s better to not to follow the crowd.

Being true to yourself means doing what you need to do to stay healthy, balanced, and relaxed. It means having inner directedness. It requires drawing upon your knowledge, experience, and instinct to carve your own path; and to have less stress because you are less swayed by popular or prevailing norms. It is thinking and acting based on an ever-developing internal guidance system.

Being true to yourself means is learning what doesn’t work. You determine what is and is not relevant to you, and ultimately, what is and is not appropriate for you to stay in control of your day, every day, and of your life which could well extend for many decades.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.
