OBAMA, ATF CREATING GUN OWNER LIST: Using Executive Order to Bypass Congress
With the cover of the mainstream media’s unwillingness to shine a bright light on the Fast & Furious gun running scandal still unfolding in a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, Barack Obama is brazenly trying to take another step towards unprecedented gun control.
According to Alan Gottlieb, Chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), Obama and the same Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives (ATF) tied up in the scandal are moving, via executive order, to bypass Congress in an attempt to create a gun owner registry—the first major tactic in any strategy to eventually disarm the public.
In his organization’s most recent broadcast alert to its members, Gottlieb warns:
“Without the approval of Congress, Obama is making gun shops in border states report gun purchasers to the federal government. Obama bypassed Congress and, instead, used the Justice Department to make this the law of the land.
Half a year after the tragic shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), Obama has released the first of many reforms he will make to our current gun laws. The rest of them will only get worse.
The anti-gun rules require gun dealers to report anyone who makes multiple semi-automatic weapon purchases within five days to the ATF. The gun buyer's personal information is then put into a massive government list where their gun activity will likely be tracked and monitored for the rest of their lives. 18,000 law-abiding Americans will be put on this list every year.”
For a deeper look at this as part of an Obama administration’s broader executive-order scheme to achieve exceptional gun control—including the latest twists in the Fast & Furious scandal that has ATF agents testifying the White House did indeed have knowledge of that program—call Special Guests right away to book an interview with Alan Gottlieb.
