Uncle Joe Biden recently mocked Americans who were concerned that the government was trying to take away their Second Amendment rights, referring to us as the “black helicopter crowd.”
Apparently, Uncle Joe didn’t get the memo that the government is already confiscating guns.
The Veterans Administration has sent out tens of thousands of letters to so-called “incompetent” veterans, mandating them to turn in their guns and ammunition. The letter says in part:
A determination of incompetency will prohibit you from purchasing, possessing, receiving, or transporting a firearm or ammunition. If you knowingly violate any of these prohibitions, you may be fined, imprisoned, or both…
Of course, the letter doesn’t actually state what “incompetency” entails, which means a bureaucrat sitting in an office can arbitrarily determine whether to nullify the Second Amendment rights of a veteran.
It is presumed that one of the criteria for disarming a veteran is being diagnosed with PTSD—Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder—a mental condition in which the symptoms are so vague that virtually any veteran can be deemed to have PTSD.
One of the “benefits” of having PTSD, however, is that often the veteran is placed on psychotropic drugs (which is a plus for the drug companies) and a way to disqualify a veteran from owning a gun.
Coincidentally—or not so coincidentally—this is the same strategy being used in New York to disarm citizens.
New York police have begun confiscating guns from anyone taking anti-anxiety medication—that is, psychotropic drugs.
And we learned this week that the State of Missouri has turned over to the Social Security Administration the complete database of Missouri citizens who possess concealed carry permits. It was deemed a “mistake,” although the “mistake” apparently occurred twice. What is clear is that the Feds are trying to match up citizens with so-called “mental problems” who possess a concealed carry permit in order to duplicate what is being done in New York.
Perhaps we’re just a bunch of knuckle-dragging conspiracy theorists for thinking Barry Obama would try to nullify the Second Amendment.
Perhaps it is just a coincidence that there is currently a nationwide shortage of ammunition, which has been blamed on the Obama administration having stockpiled a staggering two billion rounds of ammunition.
Perhaps it is just a coincidence that Obama and his minions are wringing their hands decrying those evil assault weapons, while quietly ordering 7000 AR-15s for the Department of Homeland Security.
And perhaps Fast and Furious really was a mistake. Thousands of assault weapons were probably shipped to Mexican drug cartels because of a few low-level bureaucrats. Eric Holder probably knew nothing about it. Maybe it really wasn’t about blaming gun dealers for the violence in Mexico in order to clamp down on the public being able to purchase guns.
Or maybe, just maybe, Obama is doing what he said he wanted to do while a state senator: to enact a total gun ban.
Goodbye Second Amendment, hello Comrade Obama…
