First it was Pistol Braces now It appears the ATF is chomping at the bit to begin practicing their Stasi style tactics under the new Biden/Kamel-Toe communist regime.

In a recent article in Freedom Outpost entitled France, The Nazi’s and Gun Control, the author lays out in precise historical detail how the French Government, in particular, Prime Minister Pierre Laval in 1935, four years before the Nazi invasion of France, put into motion some of the most restrictive and anti-democratic gun law measures ever seen in Europe.
“The author asserts that Laval’s 1935 gun control efforts left the French people vulnerable to the Nazi invaders and ill-equipped to deal with the Nazi invasion of 1940, plus simplified the Nazi efforts to confiscate firearms and impede a French resistance.”
So, in essence, the historical lesson to be drawn from this is DO NOT let your Nation’s gun laws be weakened by spineless politicians because it inevitable that evil men will soon come along and take advantage of an unarmed populace.
Except sadly, in America’s case, this “damage” to our second amendment is not only YET to be done, but has ALREADY been done.
The Second Amendment as it stands today is a SHELL of the document that it originally was when written.
Those currently on the soft centered right who are the loudest voices in the room when it comes to “Defending the Second Amendment from being Infringed” were very often the same ones in the past who sat idly by while greedy politicians stripped the Second Amendment of it’s inherent constitutional protections, and will be in the immediate future the ones who passively allow the new breed of liberal fascist politicians to finally KILL the Second Amendment completely.
Yeah I hate to break it to you folks, but the Second Amendment has ALREADY BEEN INFRINGED!
More to the point it has been RAPED of it’s true efficacy as a Constitutional Document meant to PROTECT citizens from a tyrannical, power-drunk Government.
How has it been infringed?
There are many examples but these four take the cake in my opinion.
The National Firearms Act of 1934 is undoubtedly the high water mark of one of the worst pieces of anti-democratic/anti-constitutional legislation ever passed. But, like every other piece of totalitarian legislation ever passed in this country (Suspension of Habeas Corpus, Patriot Act, etc.) they were passed during a time when the country was under supposed “attack” and it’s “national security” was being threatened?
So what did these four items do to “infringe” the Second Amendment?
Do you see what these “infringements” actually do to the Second Amendment folks? They chip away at it, piece by piece, until eventually, there is nothing left of the original document; it becomes an extinct piece of our “Constitutional Heritage” and not surprisingly enough, that is EXACTLY what the liberal fascist and neo-marxist of today would like to see happen.
To finally make this “antiquated” document EXTINCT.
But, ultimately, as Patriots and Citizens we cannot cry over spilled milk…only learn from our mistakes.
We HAVE to make it a point that WE (as a nation of gun owners) cannot give one more inch of ground on the Second Amendment, period.
We either Stand our Ground Now or end up like the dozens of other Nations who surrendered their gun rights to spineless politicians only to regret it later.
Mark my Words: Stand Tall Now or Bow Down Later.
Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous!
This case Supports the Position that the United States DOES NOT NEED more Gun Laws and/or Restrictions, we just NEED Federal Law Enforcement to ENFORCE the LAWS that are in PLACE and DO THEIR JOB. You cannot “legislate” the Problem away when the ENFORCEMENT side is going to constantly fail. The Current Gun Laws that are on the Books and some of the most RESTRICTIVE IN THE WORLD AND THEY WORK WHEN THEY ARE ENFORCED!
The Orlando Shooting and Omar Mateen is yet another glaring example. Mateen was interviewed Three Seperate Times by the FBI and yet his name was not FLAGGED with the ATF? Florida Gun Shop Owner calls the FBI about “Suspicious” activity involving Mateen asking question about Body Armour and Large Amounts of rifle ammo and yet Nothing Happens?
Bottom Line is that We have an ENFORCEMENT problem, NOT a LEGISLATIVE Problem.
And The Fed’s can whine all day about “Not Having Enough Counter-Terrorism Resources” to effectively do the job, but how does CREATING MORE GUN LAWS that do nothing but HURT AND HINDER LEGALLY ARMED CITIZENS Help the situation?
And While we are on “EFFECTIVE COUNTER-TERRORISM” how about we overhaul or Broken and Stpid Immigration System and STOP LETTING TERRORIST INTO THIS COUNTRY?? -SF
A group of survivors and family members of victims killed in the Emanuel AME Church shooting in Charleston, SC have filed a lawsuit against the FBI. The petition alleges the Bureau’s negligence allowed the shooter, Dylan Roof, to purchase a firearm despite his prior drug arrest.
The Associated Press attorney, Andy Savage, who represents several of the plaintiffs, said the lawsuit was filed because a proper background check would have turned up Roof’s drug arrest and prevented him from purchasing the weapon used in the attack.
“In this case, you had an unqualified purchaser that slipped through the cracks,” Savage said to the AP. “And the result is what happened on June 17.”
The report states law enforcement officials have previously admitted that mistakes were made in the processing of Roof’s background check. According to Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon, Roof’s drug arrest was incorrectly entered into the state database by a jail clerk. When Roof applied to purchase the handgun, the FBI reportedly noticed the arrest, but called the wrong agency seeking more information. Having never received any follow up information about the arrest, the purchase went through as required under the current waiting period laws.
Last summer, FBI Director James Comey also acknowledged that Roof’s application should have been denied and he promised to conduct a full investigation into the matter.
Roof is currently in jail awaiting death penalty trials at both the state and federal level. The attack in June 2015 killed nine people and wounded five more.
The lawsuit was filed under the Federal Tort Claims Act, which provides a limited waiver of sovereign immunity and allows citizens to sue the federal government in certain circumstances.

If you have not heard about this, you need to watch this 1 minute clip below and send it to all your friends. This is one of the most nefarious attempts yet by Obama’s cronies in the Justice Department to control and/or influence various private industry, including firearms and ammunition manufacturers, via Government extortion.
Thank God this measure got shot down in Congress but don’t be surprised if BHO pulls one of his famous “Executive Actions”, aka, “The Tyrant’s Pen” very soon.
I warned over 3 years go that the last year of Obama’s reign would be the most dangerous and I think I am being proven right.-SF
The House of Representatives concluded a tense debate Thursday by voting 250-169 to end a controversial Obama administration program called Operation Choke Point.
Critics say the secretive program, run by the Department of Justice, has been used to target politically unpopular industries such as gun sellers.
“We’re elated,” Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-Mo., one of the bill’s co-sponsors, told The Daily Signal after the vote. “We’ve been working on this for two and a half years—we’ve been lied to, put off and dissed by the different regulatory agencies, and we’ve prevailed.”
Operation Choke Point was designed by the Justice Department in 2013 as a way to fight fraud by pressuring banks to “choke off” access to credit and other banking services by merchants and industries the administration considered at a high risk for fraud.
Without access to banking services, it is difficult—if not impossible—for a business to survive.
Republicans who have been fighting the program believe the Obama administration abused its power under Operation Choke Point by targeting entire lines of legal industries. Some members view the tactics as “reminiscent of the IRS targeting of conservatives,” as Rep. French Hill, R-Ark., said Thursday on the House floor.
Businesses targeted under Operation Choke Point include gun sellers, pawn shops and short-term lenders. The National Rifle Association is among groups that have strongly come out against it.
“Congressman Luetkemeyer’s legislation puts an end to the Obama administration’s unwarranted attacks upon a legal and thriving sector of the American economy,” said Chris Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “On behalf of the NRA’s 5 million members, I’d like to thank Congressman Luetkemeyer for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and congratulate him on the passage of H.R. 766.”
Luetkemeyer’s bill, the Financial Institution Customer Protection Act, bans federal agencies that oversee banks from requesting or ordering that banks terminate customer accounts “unless the regulator has material reason.”
“We are debating a bill on the floor of the House that says the government can’t force banks to shut down legal banking accounts,” Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., said on the House floor. “The fact that we have to have this debate frightens me.”
The measure requires that any requests to close a customer’s banking account that come from a federal official be made in writing and rely on information other than “reputational risk.”
The term “reputational risk” has become a sticking point in the Operation Choke Point debate, as critics of the program believe the term has been used to provide federal regulators a way to close bank accounts of legal and legitimate businesses the Obama administration doesn’t like.
“Reputational risk” is a commonly used term in the banking industry to describe businesses—often illegal—that are at high risk for fraud.
In 2011, guidelines created by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) labeled firearms and ammunition sellers as “reputational risks,” pinning them alongside pornography and other enterprises like Ponzi schemes and racist materials.
According to investigations conducted by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, that list was adopted into the Justice Department’s Operation Choke Point. After its adoption, many gun sellers, pawn shops and short-term lenders reported their bank accounts being shut down.
