Obama Imposes New Gun Control Via Executive Order

July 12, 2011 10:06 am 12 comments

Early in Obama’s campaign for presidency, his campaign team admitted his strong opposition to the second amendment by stating on his website that he intends to impose so-called “assault weapon” bans and other forms of “gun control” when he becomes president. This post was quickly scrubbed from the website after feeling he heat from freedom loving Americans, but those of us who were watching the election closely were not fooled. We knew that Obama was not a fan of the second amendment (or any other part of the constitution for that matter).

After three years in office Obama has avoided the gun control issue knowing it will start a fire he doesn’t want to fight before attempting to be re-elected for a second term. Today, Obama has made a bold move by implementing gun control through an executive order.

The Obama administration is implementing new restrictions on the sale of certain weapons in border states, and increasing the penalties for violating certain firearms laws.

Fox News discusses the purpose of this order:

“In an effort to stem the illicit flow of weapons into Mexico, the Justice Department announced Monday that all gun shops in four Southwest border states will be required to alert the federal government to frequent buyers of high-powered rifles.

Under the new policy, federal firearms licensees in Texas, California, Arizona and New Mexico must report purchases of two or more of some types of rifles by the same person in a five-day span. The requirement applies to purchases of semi-automatic rifles that have detachable magazines and a caliber of greater than .22.

ATF estimates it will generate 18,000 reports a year. ATF will retain the information and if no investigative leads have been realized after two years, it will be purged.”

So, if I understand this clearly, we are going to infringe further upon on our rights to keep and bear arms because of criminals from a foreign country. Criminals that our very own ATF just armed with over 2500 weapons that have already been used in multiple murders and illegal activities (using your tax money). Criminals that cross freely over the border that the current administration refuses to help secure.

Welcome to Obama’s America. Punish the innocent and reward the guilty.

I have another suggestion – Disband the ATF and increase border security.


  • You do realize this executive order has not yet been published right?

  • Tyrannus Obamus…Fast & Furious was an operation designed to sting the 2nd Amendment, not the Mexican drug cartels.

  • What is wrong with this? Osama i mean Obama wants to control my guns because i live in a boarder state but he freely give military assault rifles to the drug lord that are used to kill innocent people and to run drugs into this nation though the open borders..

    Fellin Frisky Osama? Come and get it..

  • So, in Mr Obama’s view, the primary job of the presidency(that of Commander in Cheif) may be turned over to NATO, but the primary job of the Congress(that of creating legislation)should be his?

    I don’t think he’s fit to hold the office or to perform any of the duties of the presidency. Congress needs to do their job and either reign him in or remove him from the office.

  • Ha! In a perfect world, all the gun shops would be naming the ATF, FBI, CIA, etc.. as frequent quantity buyers.

  • I have several guns I love to hunt. Never have I needed to purchase more than one of any type of gun at a time. Unless you a supplying a militia why would anyone need to

    • It’s obvious that you do not understand what the 2nd Amendment is for… Get a clue Mr. Liebman!

    • Educated American

      It’d funny that people use the word “NEED” all too often.

      Let’s get this straight and CLEAR, It’s NOT about NEED, It’s about INFRINGEMENT!!

  • It is not all about hunting as I know people who like to shoot for the fun of it. They go to shooting ranges and shoot at targets so what is wrong with that? Honest people don’t kill only mentally ill or criminals do and they shouldn’t have guns anyway. :-)

  • Barry Soetoro’s aka Barack Obama’s goal in to take our gun right so he can become our dictator. He is using the Newtown murders in his cause.

    Question: Over the past (let’s say 5 years) how many people have been killed and how many people have been saved buy the use of a gun?

    I would say more have been saved than murdered and more would have been saved if the citizens has been allowed to have their gun with them.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
