Vice President Joe Biden made comments today stating that President Barack Obama was prepared to use an Executive Order to erode the right to keep and bear arms. This would be the most divisive way possible to enact new gun legislation and would flout the Constitution on many levels. Our founders never intended for laws to be handed down unilaterally in this manner. This is the very definition of tyranny (Webster’s states: a government in which absolute power is vested in a single ruler).
It is more important than ever that you get involved in the process of preserving your rights. Press your Representatives to give you real answers on where they stand on the 2nd Amendment. Let them know that you will not accept any new legislation or compromise. Remind them of the turnover that happened after the ’94 Assault Weapons Ban was enacted and that mid-term elections are just around the corner. Don’t forget to contact your state government to ask them if they are prepared to stand between you and a Federal Government that has gone rogue.
While we do not yet know the scope of what Vice President Biden is suggesting, the very thought of this should renew your efforts to get involved in the political process. The Vice President’s statements today should be a call to action for those of you who have been sitting idle until now. Start making yourself heard!
It is only your liberty that is at stake.
I called my 2 Senators, my Rep. and renewed my GOA membership…
Atta boy Garrett.
Upgraded GOA membership to Life. Congresscritter letters on the way.
I’ll also remind people that whether you like it or not, the mere act of owning a firearm makes you directly involved in the political process. So act on it!!
Reading between the lines on this one, I think what Biden was getting at is that the administration’s entire gun control efforts will not live or die with the AWB. Specifically, I think Biden is eluding to enacting some sort of background check or mental health check reform via executive order if the assault weapons ban doesn’t get through congress.
