With the Stroke of a Pen: Obama Moves to Ban Sale and Manufacture Of Semi-Automatic Weapons, High Capacity Magazines; Will Require Universal Registration (Full Speech Video)

Within two days of the President having been re-elected, reports of coming gun control legislation championed by liberal California Senator Diane Feinstein began to surface across the internet. Believed to be just rumors at first, the Newtown school shooting brought the proposals to the forefront of American politics.

Today, those rumors became reality.

President Obama has moved to introduce new legislation, by way of Congress and delegated Executive Orders, that promises to completely re-write the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

From universal background checks and gun registration for all firearms sold and transferred in the United States, to empowering healthcare practitioners with the ability to make determinations for who should or shouldn’t own a gun, the Obama administration and Congress are making a full spectrum assault on law-abiding gun owners.

Included in the initiative will be legislation to ban semi-automatic rifles, restrict magazine capacity to 10 rounds, and close ‘loopholes’ that allow individuals in certain states to freely and without government interference buy, sell and trade firearms.

In the days ahead I intend to use whatever weight this office holds to make them [gun proposals] a reality.

If there’s even one life that can be saved, then we’ve got an obligation to try. And I’m going to do my part.

As soon as I am finished speaking here I will sit at that desk and sign a directive giving law enforcement, schools, mental health professionals and the public health community some of the tools they need to reduce gun violence.

If you want to buy a gun, whether it’s from a licensed dealer or a private seller, you should at least have to show you are not a felon or someone legally prohibited from buying one. This is common sense, and an overwhelming majority of Americans agree with us on the need for universal background checks.

Second, Congress should restore a ban on military style assault weapons and a ten round limit for magazines.

(queue applause)

We should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. And, we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this.

(Editor’s note: It is not yet clear if this provision would apply to the sale of weapons by DEA and ATF officials to Mexican drug cartels)

Let me be absolutely clear. Like most Americans, I believe the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. I respect our strong tradition of gun ownership and the rights of hunters and sportsmen.

This will be difficult.

There will be pundits, and politicians, and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty.

Not because that’s true, but because they want to gin up fear, or higher ratings, or revenue for themselves. And, behind the scenes they will do whatever they can to block any commonsense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever.

This is the Land of the Free, and it always will be…

There’s been no word on whether universal background check provisions will also be implemented for the sale and/or transfer of weapons to Mexican drug cartels or militant extremist rebels in the middle east.

Likewise, laser guided drone attacks that often target scores of civilians including men, women and school-age children for no other reason than a quick intelligence assessment will continue until further notice.

“So this is how liberty dies… With thunderous applause”

  1. actually none of the executive orders did anything against the second. The really terrible one is that doctors should ask if someone has a gun, and the obvious answer to them should be no. Obeezy couldn’t get away with banning anything at the executive level because of the Constitution. It would have never passed in the slightest and would have caused an uproar. Spreading articles like this only adds to the FUD out there.

    What everyone needs to truly worry about is Feinstein on the 22nd when she announces her new bill. When she does it’ll hit the back burner. Congress has far more important things to worry about like how they’re actually going to get paid.

    Go read the 23 measures that were out there. Not one of them restricts anything what so ever. Most of it is about pushing out research and pamphlets.

  2. Our president respects “our strong tradition of gun ownership and the rights of hunters and sportsmen.”

    I sincerely wish he (and Feinstein, and others like them) would also respect our long tradition of civil response in arms to government tyranny.

    People need to shake off the propaganda induced hysteria and understand the history of this country.

    Too many people believe that the last time a government used force against the people of this nation was the war for independence form Britain.

    Throughout the twentieth century, there were instances where State and Local governments abused power and applied force of arms against citizens to retain control.

    The right to bear arms is not a tradition for Sportsmen and Hunters. It is the right of the citizenry to fight back against gross abuse of power and governmental authority, backed by military force.

    Look up the Ludlow Massacre (1914) in which the Colorado National Guard was used by a corrupt mining company to attack striking miners. Women and children were killed during the attack. Miners armed themselves and fought back, until federal troops finally intervened to end the conflict.

    Look up the Battle of Athens (1946), corrupt officials restructured voting districts, rigged elections, and harassed in which veterans forcibly enforced free elections when corrupt officials used force on the public in attempt to rig elections.

    We are free because our citizens can stand on an equal footing with our government, with the ability to bring the same force of arms. This was our founders intent. This is what was codified in the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

    This has nothing to do with sportsmen and hunters. This is about ability to enforce the constitution on those who would abuse the power granted by the people.

    There is no room in that equation to ban “assault weapons” or “high capacity magazines” unless we are stripping these from our police and Military as well.

    It was CIVILIAN rifled muskets that won our freedom in the war for independence.

    It was CIVILIANS using “assault rifles” that ended gross abuses of power in Athens, TN in 1946

    It will be civilians WITHOUT “assault rifles” that will die standing up to tyranny in the near future, as happened at Kent State University, in Ohio in 1970.
