Attention Gun Owners!!! ....Dictator Obama to Congress:" I’ll decide what’s constitutional"

Obama to Congress: I’ll decide what’s constitutional

Election season is here, and you might think President Obama would be going out of his way to show voters that he can be trusted with the powers of the presidency. But you would be wrong. Just a few days before Christmas, Obama served notice to all Americans that he will continue to abuse executive privilege by seeking new ways to vilify gun owners and further his anti-gun agenda.

Congress placed a provision in the $1 trillion omnibus spending bill for 2012 designed to bar the National Institutes of Health (NIH) from using any of its $30.7 billion taxpayer funds to “advocate or promote gun control.” However, upon signing the bill into law, President Obama issued a caveat of his own:

I have advised Congress that I will not construe these provisions as preventing me from fulfilling my constitutional responsibility to recommend to the Congress’s consideration such measures as I shall judge necessary and expedient.

In other words: “Congress may pass laws, but I decide which of its laws are constitutional and which I can simply choose to ignore.”

Of course, the Constitution doesn’t actually give the president this power, but Obama won’t allow a little thing like the U.S. Constitution get in his way. And in the present case, Congress is right to try to prevent him from using a federal health agency, not to mention our tax dollars, as a weapon in his ongoing war against the Second Amendment. As The Washington Times reports, NIH has wasted over $5 million since 2002 producing deceptive studies aimed at furthering gun control — including one study that tried “to prove that a home without firearms was essential to a child’s safety and well-being.”

Even more importantly, Congress knows that there is no scheme too radical, or dangerous, for the Obama administration when it comes to using federal agencies to push its anti-gun agenda.

Last month, email exchanges surfaced between employees at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) that show the administration helped illegally transfer guns to violent Mexican drug cartels in order to manufacture a case for gun registration. Now gun dealers in four Southwest border states must abide by a new gun registration requirement, courtesy of BATFE, that forces them to register the sales of any law-abiding American who purchases more than one semi-automatic rifle within five business days.

Congress never passed any law like this. Rather, Obama’s BATFE orchestrated the deadly “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal to give cause for its unconstitutional gun-control edict. Given this, how hard is it to envision the Obama administration issuing a phony “health” study that maligns gun owners?

Obama may not have a majority in Congress, or the will of the people, behind his anti-gun agenda. But that isn’t stopping his administration from finding deceitful ways to evade Congress and build public support for gun bans, gun registration and other regulations designed to weaken and destroy our Second Amendment rights.

Wild Thing's comment......

He will get to be even more of a dictator if he is elected again. He is already a living nightmare since day one of his presidency.

If NIH was doing this since 2002, they were doing this under Bush too.

The Mexican government is at war against the Cartels which have killed thousands of Mexico's citizens, government officials, and military. For Obama to be arming the Cartels would be like Canada arming the Taliban and al Qaeda.

The BATF and the MSM keep stating that 80 -95% of drug cartel firearms come from the US. This cannot be. The cartels are using fully automatic weapons which are just not available at American gun shops or gun shows. However, these weapons are very available on the international market and reasonably cheap for the ultra wealthy cartels. Also, a lot of these weapons supposedly come from corrupt military leaders in Mexico and other Latin American countries.

obama and Holder want to lay the blame on American gun owners for illegal firearms in Mexico. They use devious means and false statements to try to override the Second Amendment. They would love to impose very restrictive Chicago type laws and bans on all of America. A disarmed American citizenery opens the door for an unfettered abusive govt.

"For Obama to be arming the Cartels would be like Canada arming the Taliban and al Qaeda."

Tom, thank you so much for all that information. I bet that is exactly where they come from maybe even Hugo Chavez is doing this. I sure don't trust any of them.
