AMERICANS’ RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS IN THE CROSSHAIRS
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s “gun control” report contained nineteen recommendations for “executive action” – unilateral moves the administration of Barack Obama could conceivably make to further erode our Second Amendment rights. Most of Biden’s recommendations reportedly revolve around more aggressive enforcement of existing laws – and greater coordination of agencies within the labyrinth of the federal government – however we expect Obama to go overboard on these executive orders given the reticence of the U.S. Congress to go along with his crackdown on guns.
In addition to these nineteen executive actions, Obama is also pushing several legislative proposals – an assault weapons ban, universal background checks and a ban on high-capacity magazines.
All of these knee-jerk measures come in the wake of last month’s school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.
Obviously we’ll be addressing these measures more specifically as Obama comes forward with concrete proposals, but for the time being it’s clear that we are about to enter into a new era of civil disobedience – one in which the people of the United States must either claim their liberties or stand idly by as they are stripped from them.
